Is this Hadith authentic?
Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever recites Surah Saba [Surah 34] frequently, the Prophets will shake his hands on the day of Qiyamah.”
This narration is part of the fabricated Hadith which mentions a virtue of reciting the various Surahs of the Quran.
The Muhaddithun have declared this narration a fabrication. The Hadith is not suitable to quote.
(Tafsir Zamakhshari, end of Surah Saba and Al Kafish Shaf, pg. 234, Hadith: 916)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
