What is the ruling regarding mawdu’ (fabricated) narrations? Can we act upon a mawdu’ Hadith?
It is haram (impermissible) to quote a fabricated narration nor is it suitable to act upon. One may only quote a Hadith of this nature when explaining that it is a fabrication.
(Refer: Tadribur Rawi, vol. 1 pg. 461)
The warnings against quoting fabricated narrations are extremely severe and therefore demands extreme caution. Kindly see here for more details.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
