A follow up query on the Hadith regarding ‘The keys of the treasure of the heavens and the earth’

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

You mentioned here that the Hadith regarding ‘The keys of the treasure of the heavens and the earth’ Hadith is fabrication. You also said: “This Hadith has also been reported with another chain, and has variations in the wording”

Can I practice on the one with the other chain and has different wording?

 

Answer

Hafiz Ibn Kathir (rahimahullah) has declared the text of this narration unreliable (fihi nakarah shadidah). Therefore, although there is more than one chain, the text still remains unreliable.

‘Allamah Dhahabi (rahimahullah) has also stated, ‘In my opinion, this is a fabrication’.

 

See the references here.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
