Cities in the Hereafter reserved for those who fast in Rajab?


Is this Hadith authentic?

إن لله مدائن لا يدخلها إلا من صام رجب



This narration appears in Musnadul Firdaws as part of a longer narration. However, the chain contains a narrator who has been a liar by some Muhaddithun.

Therefore, the Muhaddithun have cited this narration in their books on fabricated Hadiths.

(Musnadul Firdaws: 247, Mizanul I’tidal, vol. 1 pg. 259, number: 959, Dhaylul La-Alil Masnu’ah, Hadith: 753, vol. 2 pg. 617, Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2 pg. 333. Also see Al Adab Fi Rajab, pg. 38)


The narration is not suitable to quote.



Allah Ta’ala has special cities [in the Hereafter], only those who would fast in Rajab will enter them.


And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
