A fabricated narration regarding animals greeting on Jumu’ah

Is this authentic?

إذا كان يوم الجمعة نادت الطير الطير والوحوش الوحوش والسباع السباع سلام عليكم هذا يوم الجمعة


Imam Daylami (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration. However, this Hadith has been transmitted with a chain that has been declared unreliable by the Muhaddithun. ‘Allamah Suyuti (rahimahullah) has cited this narration in his book on fabricated Hadiths.

(Refer: Dhaylul La-Alil Masnu’ah, vol. 1 pg. 443, Hadith: 527)

The Hadith is not suitable to quote.


On the day of Jumu’ah, the birds, predators and beasts of prey call out to each other, ‘Peace be upon you, today is Jumu’ah.’

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
