ʿAbdullāh ibn ʿAmr ibn al-ʿās (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) said: "Convey from me even one verse, and narrate from the Children of Israel, and there is no sin in that. And whoever intentionally tells a lie against me, let him assume his seat in Hellfire."
عن عبد الله بن عمرو بن العاص -رضي الله عنهما-: أن النبي -صلى الله عليه وسلم- قال: «بلغوا عني ولو آية، وحدثوا عن بني إسرائيل ولا حرج، ومن كذب علي متعمدا فَلْيَتَبَوَّأْ مقعده من النار».
شرح الحديث :
Meaning of Hadīth: The Prophet (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him) says to his nation: Convey to people the knowledge you have inherited from me, from the Qur'an or the Sunnah, even if what you convey is as little as one single verse from the Qur'an, on condition that the conveyer is knowledgeable of what he conveys and comprehends it. The command to convey applies when it is an obligation to do so. If it is not an obligation, such as in case there are preachers in his town who call to Allah and teach people about their religion, then he is not obliged to convey; rather, it is only recommended that he does so. Also, there is no harm on you or sin in narrating what you heard from the Children of Israel about real events that happened to them, such as the fire that came down from the sky and consumed the offering, or the story of killing themselves as repentance from calf worship, or the details of the stories mentioned in the Qur'an which contain lessons and admonitions. Moreover, the one who lies against me, let him take his place in Hellfire, because lying against the Messenger of Allah is not like lying against anyone else. Lying against the Messenger of Allah is equivalent to lying against Allah and against the Shariah, because the revelation that the Messenger of Allah conveys is Allah’s legislation, hence the punishment of the one who tells such lies is more intense.
