An unreliable Hadith stating a virtue of those who serve the poor

Question

Is this Hadith authentic?

خادم الفقراء يحشر مع الأنبياء

 

Answer

Although serving the poor is noble deed, the Hadith in question has been declared a fabrication by ‘Allamah Saghani (rahimahullah). The Hadith is therefore not suitable to quote.

(Mawdu’atus Saghani, Hadith: 75)

 

Translation

Those who serve the poor will be raised with the Ambiya

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
