Love for one's country is part of faith

Answered by

the Fatwa Department Research Committee - chaired by Sheikh `Abd al-Wahhâb al-Turayrî

There is a hadîth that reads: “The love for one’s country is part of faith”.

It is discussed by al-`Ajlûnî in his book Kashf al-Khafâ’ [1102]. Al-`Ajlûnî writes: “Imam al-San`anî said this hadîth is false, and al-Sakhâwî said in his book al-Maqâsid al-Hasanah [386]: 'I never came across this hadîth'.”

Al-Albânî lists this hadîth in his book Silsilah al-Ahâdîth al-Da`îfah (A Series of the Weak and False Hadîth) as hadîth no. 36.
