An unreliable narration regarding an eclipse during the month of Safar

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Question

Please verify the authenticity of this narration:

“And when the moon eclipses in Safar there would be a lack of rain in that year until the decrease will appear in the sea.”

Answer

This is part of a longer unreliable narration which explains the occurrences if eclipses occur during the months of the year. The part in question is as follows:

“…If an eclipse occurs in Safar, there will be a decrease in rain so much so that the [water levels] in the ocean will also decrease…”

However, the Muhaddithun have declared this narration a fabrication. It is therefore not suitable to quote.

(Refer: Talkhisu Kitabil Mawdu’at, Hadith: 34, Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 1 pg. 178 and Al Asrarul Marfu’ah, pg. 418)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
