Is this Hadith authentic?
Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever cuts his moustache, will receive one thousand (1000) cities of pearls and rubies for every hair…”
The Muhaddithun have declared this Hadith a fabrication. It is therefore not suitable to quote.
(Refer: Talkhisu Kitabil Mawdu’at, Hadith: 706, Lisanul Mizan, vol. 5 pg. 288, number: 4952 and Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2 pg. 268/269)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
