The complete narration regarding alleviating the distress of a Believer in Rajab

Question

Is this narration authentic?

من فرج عن مؤمن كربة في رجب أعطاه الله في الفردوس قصرا مد بصره أكرموا رجبا يكرمكم الله

 

Answer

Hafiz Ibn Hajar (rahimahullah) has termed the text of this Hadith as baseless. The Hadith can therefore not be quoted.

(Refer: Tabyinul ‘Ajab of Hafiz Ibn Hajar, pg. 27, Hadith: 12)

 

Translation

Whoever alleviates distress of a Muslim in the month of Rajab, Allah will grant him a palace in Jannatul Firdaws, extending as far as his eye can see. Honour Rajab and Allah will honour you.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
