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”
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.
