A FABRICATED HADEETH ABOUT THE VIRTUE OF PRAYING TWO RAK‘AHS AFTER GHUSL FOLLOWING MENSES.
It was narrated from the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him): “If a woman does ghusl following her menses and prays two rak‘ahs in which she recites al-Faatihah and Soorat al-Ikhlaas three times in each rak‘ah, she will be forgiven every sin she committed, minor or major, and no sin will be recorded for her until her next period, and she will be given the reward of sixty martyrs, a city will be built for her in Paradise, she will be given light for every hair on her head, and if she dies before her next menses she will die as a martyr.
(NUZHAT AL-MAJAALIS WA MUNTAKHAB AL-NAFAA’IS PAGE 240)
Praise be to Allaah the Lord of the Worlds, and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and all his family and companions.This hadeeth is not narrated in any of the reliable books of hadeeth; rather it is a fabricated hadeeth which is falsely attributed to the Messenger (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him).There is no basis for this hadeeth and it is not mentioned in the well-known books of hadeeth. Rather it was mentioned by Shaykh ‘Abd al-Rahmaan al-Safoori (d. 894 AH) in his book Nuzhat al-Majaalis wa Muntakhab al-Nafaa’is (p. 240), The fact that this is the only book that mentions this hadeeth is sufficient to prove that it is false and fabricated, because it is a book that is filled with false reports.
ABDULLAH IBN MUBARAK RIGHTLY SAID :-
Chains are in deen, if chain is not there then anyone can say anything.
(MUQADDAMAH SAHIH MUSLIM TARQEEM DARUS SALAM NO 32 )
SHAYKH MUHAMMAD RASHEED RIDA SAID :-
We cannot rely on the hadeeths with which books of exhortation, heart-softening reports and tasawwuf (Sufism) are filled, without examining their origins and degrees of authenticity. This ruling does not apply only to books whose authors are not known for having advanced in knowledge, such as the book Nuzhat al-Majaalis, which is filled with fabricated hadeeths and other reports; rather even the books of some leading scholars, such as al-Ihya’, are not free of many fabricated reports.
(MAJALLAT AL-MANAAR 3/545)
I warn my Muslim brothers,sisters against being deceived by this hadeeth and other fabricated reports, or printing and distributing them among the Muslims, because that is misguiding the common folk and confusing them, and telling lies about the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), who issued a stern warning to the one who does that deliberately, as he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said in the saheeh hadeeth
Narrated ‘Ali: The Prophet(P.B.U.H) said, “Do not tell a lie against me for whoever tells a lie against me (intentionally) then he will surely enter the Hell-fire.”
SAHIH BUKHARI (Volume 1 Book #3, Hadith #106)
Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Az-Zubair: I said to my father, ‘I do not hear from you any narration (Hadith) of Allah s Apostle as I hear (his narrations) from so and so?” Az-Zubair replied. l was always with him (the Prophet) and I heard him saying “Whoever tells a lie against me (intentionally) then (surely) let him occupy, his seat in Hell-fire.
SAHIH BUKHARI (Volume 1 Book #3, Hadith #107)
Narrated Anas: The fact which stops me from narrating a great number of Hadiths to you is that the Prophet said: “Whoever tells a lie against me intentionally, then (surely) let him occupy his seat in Hell-fire.”
SAHIH BUKHARI (Volume 1 Book #3, Hadith #108)
Narrated Al-Mughira: I heard the Prophet (P.B.U.H) saying, “Ascribing false things to me is not like ascribing false things to anyone else. Whosoever tells a lie against me intentionally then surely let him occupy his seat in Hell-Fire.”
SAHIH BUKHARI (Volume 2 Book #23, Hadith #378)
In the saheeh reports narrated from the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and compiled in the reliable books of Saheeh, Sunan and Musnads there is sufficient information and the one whom Allaah guides to goodness has no need to turn to the reports of liars and fabricators. I ask Allaah to bless us all with beneficial knowledge and to enable us to do good deeds and to avoid all the paths of misguidance and deviance, for He is All-Hearing and Ever Near. And peace be upon you and the mercy of Allaah and His Blessings.
