An unauthentic virtue of fasting and spending the night in worship in Rajab

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Is this Hadith authentic?

من صام يوما من رجب وقام ليلة من لياليه بعثه الله تعالى آمنا يوم القيامة ومر على الصراط وهو يهلل ويكبر



Imam Daylami (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on  the authority of Sayyiduna Jabir (radiyallahu ‘anhu). However, the chain consists of a liar. The Hadith is therefore not suitable to quote.

(Dhaylul La-Alil Masnu’ah, vol. 1 pg. 464, Hadith: 560, Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2, pg. 164)



Whoever fasts for one day in Rajab and spends one night of Rajab [in ‘ibadah], Allah Ta’ala will resurrect him in safety on the Day of Qiyamah and he will cross the bridge [sirat] while saying ‘La ilaha illallah’ and ‘Allahu Akbar’.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
