The seen (س) of Sayyiduna Bilal (radiyallahu 'anhu) is a sheen (ش) in the sight of Allah Ta'ala

Question

Is the following hadith authentic?

The seen (س) of Sayyiduna Bilal (radiyallahu ‘anhu)  is a sheen (ش) in the sight of Allah Ta’ala

Answer

This narration has also been reported with the following words:

Sayyiduna Bilal (radiyallahu ‘anhu) use to change the letter sheen (ش) that appears in the azan to a seen (س).

These narrations have no basis and are fabrications. They are not suitable to be quoted. In fact the opposite has been reported, that Sayyiduna Bilal (radiyallahu ‘anhu) was eloquent and had a beautiful voice.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
