What is the source of this Hadith and is it authentic?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever reads Surahs Hadid, Waqi’ah and Rahman, will be known to the inhabitants of the world and heavens as the dwellers of Jannatul Firdaws (the highest level of Paradise).”



Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyidah Fatimah (radiyallahu ‘anha). However, he has declared the text of the Hadith unreliable (munkar).

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
