- Status : FABRICATED
It is said the following is a hadeeth :
“Rajab is Allaah’s month, Shaban is My month and Ramadaan is the month of my Ummah.”
This “hadith” is a fabrication (mawdhu).
The Sanad (chain of narrators) includes 1) Abu Bakr ibn Al-Hasan Al-Naqqash, who is accused of fabrication, and 2) Al-Kissa’y who is unknown and his name was mentioned in “Al-La’ali’ fi Al-Mawdu`at”, a book about fabricated Hadiths.
- Shaykhul Hadith Fazlur Rahman Aazami (HA), see Akhbaare-Modhoo’, pg 329
- Shaykh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi (HA)
- Saudi Permanent Committee for Scholarly Research and Ifta’, Part No. 3; Page No. 208 (chairman: Shaykh Ibn Baz (RA), along with its senior members).
So it is not permissible to quote this report as a ‘hadith’, when you have these 3 giant scholars from different backgrounds agreeing on its spuriousness.
Lastly don’t hesitate to spread this post or to let me know of any famous fabricated hadith, jazakumullahu khayran.
