An unauthentic virtue of reciting Surah Ahzab

Question

Is this Hadith authentic?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever recites Surah Al Ahzab, teaches it to his family and slaves, will be given safety in the grave”

 

Answer

This narration is part of the lengthy fabricated Hadith which mentions a virtue of reciting the various Surahs of the Quran.

The Muhaddithun have declared this narration a fabrication. The Hadith is not suitable to quote.

(Tafsir Zamakhshari, end of Surah Ahzab, Al Kafish Shaf, pg. 233, Hadith: 912)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
