Question

Is this Hadith authentic?

إن لله مدائن لا يدخلها إلا من صام رجب

 

Answer

This narration appears in Musnadul Firdaws as part of a longer narration. However, the chain contains a narrator who has been a liar by some Muhaddithun.

Therefore, the Muhaddithun have cited this narration in their books on fabricated Hadiths.

(Musnadul Firdaws: 247, Mizanul I’tidal, vol. 1 pg. 259, number: 959, Dhaylul La-Alil Masnu’ah, Hadith: 753, vol. 2 pg. 617, Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2 pg. 333. Also see Al Adab Fi Rajab, pg. 38)

 

The narration is not suitable to quote.

 

Translation

Allah Ta’ala has special cities [in the Hereafter], only those who would fast in Rajab will enter them.

 

And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
