Question

Was Allah Ta’ala the first to read Janazah Salah on Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)?

Is the Hadith authentic?

 

Answer

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
