Feeding a poor household on ‘Aashura


Is this Hadith authentic?

Feeding the poor on ‘Aashura:

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever feeds a poor household on ‘Aashura will cross the bridge (Sirat) with the speed of lightening”



This is part of a lengthy narration which has been declared a fabrication by the Muhaddithun. The narration is therefore not suitable to quote.

(Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2 pg. 150/151 and Al Atharul Marfu’ah, pg. 96/97)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
