A narration stating that seventy thousand angels escorted Fatimah (radiyallahu ‘anha) on her wedding night

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Is it true that that when Sayyidah Fatimah (radiyallahu ‘anha) went to the home of Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu), she was escorted by Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), Jibril, Mikail and seventy thousand other angels?



The Muhaddithun have declared this narration a fabrication. The narration is therefore not suitable to quote.
