أخرجوا يهود الحجاز وأهل نجران من جزيرة العرب واعلموا أن شر الناس الذين اتخذوا قبور أنبيائهم مساجد» .
(صحيح) … [حم ع حل الضياء] عن أبي عبيدة بن الجراح. الصحيحة 1132: الدارمي, الطحاوي, الحميدي)

It is reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: 

“Drive the Jews of the Hejaz and the inhabitants of Najran [1] from the Arabian Peninsula and know that the worst people are those who turned the graves of their prophets into places of worship.” 

This hadith was narrated by Ahmad 1/195, Abu Ya’la 872, Abu Nu’aym in Khilyatul-awliya 8/432, ad-Diya al-Maqdisi in al-Mukhtar 1122 from the words of Abu ‘Ubayd ibn al-Jarrah , may Allah be pleased with him.

Sheikh al-Albani called the hadith authentic. See Saheeh al-Jami ‘as-saghir 233.
