Is this Hadith authentic?
Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever recites Surah Najm (Surah: 53), Allah will give him ten good deeds, for each person who believed in Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and denied him in Makkah.”
This narration is part of the lengthy 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 Ahzab, Al Kafish Shaf, pg. 233, Hadith: 912)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
