Was Allah Ta’ala the first to read Janazah Salah on Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)?
Is the Hadith authentic?
This is part of a lengthy narration recorded by Imam Abu Nu’aym (rahimahullah) in his Hilyatul Awliya.
(Hilyatul Awliya, vol. 4 pg. 76)
However, this narration is a fabrication and not suitable to quote.
(Refer; Kitabul Mawdu’at of Ibnul Jawzi, vol. 1 pg. 301, Al La-alil Masnu’ah, vol. 1 pg. 257 and Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 1 pg. 331)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
