A fabrication regarding consuming a pious person’s food

Question

Please verify this narration. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Whoever eats a pious person’s food, Allah Ta’ala will purify his heart and stomach from haram for forty years and forty years of worship will be recorded for him”

 

Answer

Imam Daylami (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu). However, the Muhaddithun have declared this Hadith a fabrication. The Hadith is not suitable to quote.

(Musnadul Firdaws, Hadith: 5838. Refer: Dhaylul La-Alil Masnu’ah, vol. 2 pg. 780, Hadith: 984 and Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2 pg. 267)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
