An unauthentic virtue of reciting Surah Al Hujurat

Question

I have come across this narration and would like to know the authenticity:

“Whoever reads Surah Al Hujurat will emerge from his grave reciting it, until he enters Jannah, while the people will still be giving account”

 

Answer

‘Allamah Suyuti (rahimahullah) has cited this narration in his book on fabricated Hadiths. The Hadith is therefore not suitable to quote.

(Refer: Dhaylul La-Alil Masnu’ah, vol. 1 pg. 141, Hadith: 155, Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 1 pg. 306/307)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
