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

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
