A fabricated narration on the reward of opening the fast with a halal date

Question

Is this narration authentic?

من أفطر على تمرة من حلال زيد في صلاته أربعمائة صلاة

 

Answer

Imam Ibn ‘Adiy (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration with variation in the wording. However, the Muhaddithun have declared the Hadith a fabrication.

The Hadith is not suitable to quote.

(Al Kamil, vol. 9 pg. 556, Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2 pg. 147)

 

Translation

Whoever opens his fast with a halal date, his Salah will yield the reward of four hundred (400) Salah.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
