Another unauthentic virtue of keeping the name Muhammad

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

What is the status of the following Hadith?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“When a Muslim spends the night with his wife and makes the intention that if she falls pregnant, he will name the child Muhammad, then Allah Ta’ala will bless them with a male offspring. And Allah Ta’ala blesses the home in which there is someone named Muhammad”

 

Answer

‘Allamah Dhahabi and other Muhaddithun have declared this narration a fabrication. The Hadith is not suitable to quote.
