The Hirz of Abu Dujanah

Question

What is the status of the Hadith regarding the Hirz of Abu Dujana (radiyallahu ‘anhu) wherein he was given some verses to write down and place under his pillow for protection?

 

Answer

This is extremely unreliable. Rather it has been declared a fabrication by certain Hadith Masters too.
