An unauthentic virtue of reciting Surah Shams

Question

If a person recites Surah Shams he will get the reward of giving sadaqah of everything that sunlight and moonlight has ever touched [i.e. whatever this world contains]

Is this Hadith true?

 

Answer

This narration is part of the lengthy fabricated Hadith which mentions a virtue of reciting the various Surahs of the Quran.

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

(Tafsir Zamakhshari, end of Surah Shams and Al Kafish Shaf, pg. 318, Hadith: 1307)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
