Visiting the sick on ‘Aashura


Is this deed for ‘Aashura authentic?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “Visit the sick on the day of ‘Aashura, it will be as though you visited the sick of the entire children of Adam”



No, this is not authentic.

The Muhaddithun have declared this narration a fabrication. The Hadith is therefore not suitable to quote.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
