A fabricated narration on looking at a beautiful face

Question

Is this authentic?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “To look at a beautiful/handsome face is worship.”

 

Answer

Mulla ‘Ali Al Qari (rahimahullah) has quoted ‘Allamah Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah) who has declared this Hadith a baseless fabrication. The Hadith is not suitable to quote.

(Al Masnu’, Hadith: 383)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
