What is the authenticity of this Hadith?
لما ناولت فاطمة -رضي الله عنها- أحد ولديها بلالا أو أنسا -رضي الله عنهم- قال أنس: رأيت كفها كأنه فلقة قمر
When Fatimah (radiyallahu ‘anha) handed over one of her son to Bilal or Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma), Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said: “I saw the [outer portion of her hand], as if it was a piece of the moon”
This narration is cited in certain Fiqh books. I have not come across the narration in any primary Hadith source nor have I come across the complete chain.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
