An unreliable virtue of fasting on the 27th of Rajab

Question

Is this narration authentic?

من صام ذلك اليوم -السابع والعشرين- من رجب ودعا عند افطاره كانت كفارة عشر سنين

 

Answer

Hafiz Ibn Hajar Al ‘Asqalani (rahimahullah) has declared the Hadith a fabrication (بسند باطل).

(Tabyinul ‘Ajab, pg. 44, Hadith: 27. Also see: Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2 pg. 161)

 

Translation

Whoever fast on the twenty seventh of Rajab and makes du’a at the time of iftar, this will be a means of expiating ten years of sins.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
