A Hadith regarding poverty and the name Muhammad


Is this narration authentic?

لا يدخل الفقر بيتا فيه اسمي



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)



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


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
