A du’a wherein Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) expressed gratitude for certain things

Question

What is status of following narration?

قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: الحمد لله الذي أطعمني الخمير، وألبسني الحرير، وزوجني خديجة، وكنت لها عاشقا

 

Answer

Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Imam Zuhri (rahimahullah) mursalan.

(Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 3 pg. 182)

 

However, this chain consists of a narrator who has been declared extremely weak by some Muhaddithun. Imams Ibn Ma’in, Daraqutni, Azdi (rahimahumullah) and others have declared him a liar/fabricator.

(Refer: Lisanul Mizan, vol. 7 pg. 52/53, number: 6623)

 

The narration is therefore not suitable to quote.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
