A narration regarding Ramadan

Question

Is this narration authentic?

اتقوا شهر رمضان فإنه شهر الله جعل لكم أحد عشر شهرا تشبعون فيها وتروون وشهر رمضان شهر الله فاحفظوا فيه أنفسكم

 

Answer

These words appear in Musnadul Firdaws. The narration has been recorded with a chain that consists of a fabricator. ‘Allamah Suyuti (rahimahullah) has cited this narration in his book on fabricated Hadiths. It should therefore not be quoted as a Hadith.

(Refer: Dhaylul La-Alil Masnu’ah, vol. 1 pg. 456, Hadith: 553, Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2 pg. 160. Also see: Shu’abul Iman, Hadith: 3359)

 

Translation

Abstain [from sins] in the month of Ramadan, for it is the month of Allah. Allah has given you eleven months in which you satiate and quench yourself. The month of Ramadan is the month of Allah so protect yourself.

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
