An unauthentic Hadith on lowering the gaze on the day of Qiyamah

Question

Are the following Hadiths from Al Mustadrak authentic?

“On the day of Qiyamah it will be called out that everyone should lower their gazes so that Fatimah the daughter of Muhammad can pass”

A second narration states that she will pass wearing two green/red garments.

 

Answer

Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has recorded these Hadiths with extremely weak chains. Hafiz Dhahabi has declared the first Hadith a fabrication. Both these narrations are not suitable to quote.

(Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 3 pg. 153 and vol. 3 pg. 161. Also see Al ‘Ilalul Mutanahiyah, vol. 1 pg. 262-266, Hadith: 420- 428)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
