Respect bread

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Respect bread. It is from the blessings of the skies and earth. Whoever eats fallen bread from the table cloth for him there is maghfirah [salvation].

What is the authenticity of this Hadith?


This is recorded -with varied wordings- in the following books with weak chains:

Ma’rifatus Sahabah of Abu Nu’aym, number: 3029

Al-Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 840 [22]

Hilyatul Awliya, Hadith: 7118 & 14273

(See Maqasidul Hasanah, Hadith: 153, Mukhtasarul Maqasid, Hadith: 139 & Sharhul ihya, vol.5 pg.220)

The first sentence: ‘Respect bread’ is recorded with a better chain in Mustadrak Hakim, vol.4 pg.122

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
