Is this narration authentic?
من أفطر على تمرة من حلال زيد في صلاته أربعمائة صلاة
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)
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.
