Is the following hadith fabricated? 

“If someone leaves his house and reads Ayahtul kursi, 70 000 angels will protect him”


In the name of Allah the most Beneficent, the most Merciful

After searching for the hadith , I’m afraid I could not find it in any books of hadiths. It is not in the six authentic books of hadiths nor in any other compilation of hadith books . The only book where I could find the hadith is in نزهة المجالس ومنتخب الن. This is  a book on the virtues of good deeds by Imam Abdur Rahman Asafoori from the Islamic 9th  century.  However the Imam seems to have quoted many weak and fabricated narrations in his book without any references or any chains. This particular report is narrated with the following two wordings both of which, as mentioned above are not in any reliable hadith books.

من قرأها حين يخرج من بيته لم يقربه شيطان ولاتصيبه عين حاسد ولا حاقد .. ويبعثالله عز وجل سبعون ألف ملك يستغفرون له ويدعون له ، وحفظه الله في ماله وولده وعرضه ودنياه ونال شرفاً عظيماً


وقال جابر بن عبدالله سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول ” من قرأ آية الكرسي حين يخرج من بيته وكل الله به سبعين ألف ملك يحفظونه من بين يديه ومن خلفه وعن يمينه وعن شماله وإن مات قبل أن يرجع أعطاه الله ثواب أربعين شهيدا “

Only Allah Knows best.
