A Hadith regarding poverty and the name Muhammad

Question

Is this narration authentic?

لا يدخل الفقر بيتا فيه اسمي

 

Answer

Imam Ibn ‘Adiy (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Al Kamil, Hadith: 14889)

 

However, the Muhaddithun have declared the Hadith a fabrication. The Hadith is not suitable to quote.

(Refer: Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 1 pg. 173)

 

Translation

Poverty will not enter a home wherein my name is [wherein someone is named Muhammad].

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
