An unreliable virtue of offering Fajr Salah for forty days with the first takbir

Question

Is this authentic?

It appears in a Hadith that whomsoever offers Fajr Salah for forty (40) days without missing the first rak’ah, will not die until he sees his abode in Jannah.

 

Answer

The Muhaddithun have declared this narration a fabrication. The Hadith is therefore not suitable to quote.

(Refer: Mizanul I’tidal, vol. 1 pg. 209, number: 767, Talkhisu Kitabil Mawdu’at, Hadith: 445, Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2 pg. 97)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
