An unreliable narration on spending a night of Rajab in worship and fasting the next day

Question

Is this authentic?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Whoever revives one night of Rajab [spends it in ‘ibadah] and fasts the next day, Allah will feed him from the fruits of Jannah, clothe him from the garments of Jannah and grant him drink from the sealed nectar.”

 

Answer

This narration is recorded in Musnadul Firdaws. However, ‘Allamah Suyuti (rahimahullah) has pointed out a fabricator in the chain. The Hadith is therefore not suitable to quote.

(Musnadul Firdaws, Hadith: 5938, Dhaylul La-Alil Masnu’ah, vol. 1 pg. 464, Hadith: 561, Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2, pg. 164)
