Is there any reward for announcing the commencement of Rajab?

Question

Is this authentic?

The month of Rajab is here again, Prophet Muhammad(sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said: Whoever is the first person to give another person news about this month the fire is Haram to them

Answer

I haven’t seen this in any Hadith.

There is a fabricated Hadith like this one regarding the commencement of the month of Rabi’ul Awwal.

See here

It’s possible that some people have misquoted this fabrication.

One should avoid quoting the Hadith in question until it can be validated.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
