An unreliable narration regarding the call of the angels when a girl is born

Question

When a baby girl is born a caller says

ضعيفة خرجت من ضعيفة

Is this authentic?

 

Answer

This is part of a longer narration recorded by Imam Tabarani.

The part in question is as follows:

“When a girl is born, Allah ‘Azza wa Jalla sends angels who say: ‘…A delicate [child] that came out of a delicate woman…'”

(Al Mu’jamus Saghir, Hadith: 70)

 

However, the chain has been declared unreliable. The Hadith is therefore not suitable to quote.

(Refer: Lisanul Mizan, vol. 1 pg. 404, number: 391 and Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2 pg. 201)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
