Hadith Al-Daif - 8 (Zaeef Hadees)
(حُبُّ الْوَطَنِ مِنَ الإِيمَانِ (Hubbul-Watan Min al-Eemaan)
"The love for home country is a part of eemaan(faith)".
Hadith scholars have described this to be a fabricated hadith.
In the sharah of Imam Tamiyyah's 'al-Waseeah al-Kubra', Shaikh Abdul Aziz ar-Raajaee writes that it may be sayings of some 'salafs' but it is not a hadith.
Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) said: This is a fabrication.
In Al-Asrar Al-Marfoo’a fee Al-Akhbaar Al-Mawdoo’at” by al-Mulla ‘Ali Qaari, Az-Zarkashi said: “I am not aware of it.”
As-Saeed Ma’een uddin as-Safawiyyu said: “It is not proven” And it was said that it may be from the sayings of some salafs.
Shaykh Nasir uddin al-Albaani , in his book “al-Silsilah al-Hadeeth ad-Da’eefahwa al-modhu'a” (Volume 1, number 36), described it as being Mawdoo’ (fabricated). further that its meanings are not correct as well because the love for home country is like love for one-self or that for wealth. The love for these are human nature and for this humans are neither praise worthy. Love for home country is human instinct and common to both Muslims and non-Muslims.
