An unreliable narration on joining family ties

Question

Is this narration authentic?

It is mentioned in a narration: “Whoever guarantees me one thing, I will guarantee four things for him; Guarantee me that you join ties, I will guarantee the following, Your family will love you, your sustenance will be increased, your lifespan will be increased and Allah will enter you in to Jannah.”

 

Answer

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

(Dhaylul La-Alil Masnu’ah, vol. 2 pg. 577, Hadith: 698)

 

The following Hadiths should be quoted instead:

 

1) Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Learn about your family lineage and roots so that you may join family ties, for family ties brings love in the family, increases one’s wealth and brings barakah to/increases one’s life”

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 1979. See here)

 

2) Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Whoever wishes to have his provision increased or his life lengthened should maintain ties of kinship.”

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 2067 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2557. See here)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
