“70,000 Veils” lifted between Allah and us while breaking the fast?

  • Status: NO SOURCE

Here is the entire sequence of the report copy-pasted :

Once Moosa (Moses) (alayhis salam) asked Allah Ta’ala: O Allah ! you have granted me the honor and privilege of talking to you directly, Have you given this privilege to any other person? Allah Taala replied, O Moosa during the last period I am going to send an ummat, who will be the Ummat of Mohammed [saws] with dry lips, parched tongues, emaciated body with eyes sunken deep into their sockets, with livers dry and stomachs suffering the pangs of hunger- will call out to me (in dua) they will be much much closer to me than you O Moosa! While you speak to me there are 70,000 veils between you and me but at the time of iftaar there will not be a single veil between me and the fasting Ummati of Mohammed [saws]

1) It is not found in any of the books of senior Muḥadditithins, rather it was narrated except in a few unreliable books (filled with false, fabricated reports, stories and myths, such as Nuzhah al-Majālis wa Muntakhab al-Nafaa’is wherein no sanad or source is given).

2) In the matn (content) of the hadeeth there is something which indicates that it is munkar (unsound), which is the words “I will be closer to one of them than you” – referring to Moosa (as). It is well known in Muslim belief that the Messengers and Prophets are better than all other humans, and Moosa is one of the Messengers of strong will, so how can Allah be closer to His slaves than to His Prophet Moosa (AS), of whom He said : “And We called him from the right side of the Mount, and made him draw near to Us for a talk with him” [Maryam 19:52]? And Ibn ‘Abbas [Radhiyallahu ‘anhum] said: He drew so close that he heard the scratching of the Pen (ie writing the Tawrah). Tafsir Ibn Kathir (5/237).

Note: The fasting person’s du’a being accepted is also reported in other reliable Hadiths of Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam)

To sum up: the “hadith” mentioned is not in any of the reliable books, so it is not permissible to attribute it the Messenger of Allah or to believe what it says.

      Wa ‘alaykum assalam brother,

      Please note I am just a layman I don’t have any solid knowledge on the subject. I only copy-paste from Shuyukh and muftis’ websites.

      You might want to contact the ifta websites I have mentioned in the sources of my different articles, there you would find competent shuyukh who can assist you in authenticating these ahadith. Then you may also share the answers with me.

      Take care,
      Wassalam.
