A narration stating a virtue of the name Muhammad or Ahmad


Is this narration authentic?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “There is no table placed and someone whose name is Muhammad or Ahmad sits there [to eat], except that the house will be sanctified two times.”



This narration is recorded as part of a collection [sahifah] in Musnadul Firdaws. The Muhaddithun have declared that particular  collection a fabrication.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
