A narration stating that seventy thousand angels escorted Fatimah (radiyallahu ‘anha) on her wedding night

Question

Is it true that that when Sayyidah Fatimah (radiyallahu ‘anha) went to the home of Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu), she was escorted by Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), Jibril, Mikail and seventy thousand other angels?

 

Answer

The Muhaddithun have declared this narration a fabrication. The narration is therefore not suitable to quote.

(Refer: Kitabul Majruhin Minal Muhaddithin, vol. 1 pg. 236, Lisanul Mizan, vol. 2 pg. 381. Also see: Mizanul I’tidal, vol. 2 pg. 516, number: 4708)
