Ahaadeeth that are popular, Widespread and Weak (Part 5 – Concerning the day of Aashooraa)

Bismillahi Wal Hamdullillah Was Salaatu Was Salaamu Alaa Rasoollillahi

Ammaa Ba’d:

In continuing with this series, since today is the day of Aashooraa we mention here a number of weak ahaadeeth regularly quoted upon this blessed day.

((من وسع على عياله يوم عاشوراء، وسع الله عليه سائر سنته))

Whoever spends upon his family on the day of Aashooraa, then Allah will increase bounties upon him for the rest of the year

(Collected by Al Baihaqee in ‘Shu’ab’ 3/366/3795 and At Tabaraani in ‘Mu’jamul Awsat 9/140-141/9298)

Grade: Dha’eef (Weak): After Imaam Al Baihaqi mentions the hadeeth he states: “These chains of narration though they are weak, if brought together then they give (the hadeeth) strength” Shaikh Albaani follows his statement saying: “The condition of strengthening the hadeeth by way of supporting chains of narrations is not fulfilled here..” he then explains in detail why. Silsilatul Ahaadeeth Ad Dha’eefah (6264)

((من صام يوم عاشوراء كتب الله له عبادة ستين سنة))

Whoever fasts on the day of Aashooraa then Allah will write for him the reward of sixty years of worship

Grade: Fabricated: Imaam Abu Taahir Al Maqdisi said in Ma’rifatu Tadhkirah 1/220: “In it is Habeeb Ibn Abi Habeeb and he was a fabricator of hadeeth“. Ibn Al Jauzi mentions it in his book concerning fabricated hadeeth ‘Al Maudhoo’aat 2/202.

((من صام يوم عاشوراء أعطي ثواب عشرة آلاف شهيد))

Whoever fasts on the day of Aashooraa will be given the reward of ten thousand martyrs

Grade: Fabricated: Ibnul Jauzi mentions it in ‘Al Moudhoo’aat 2/202 and says: “This hadeeth is fabricated without doubt! Imaam Ahmad said: “Habeeb Ibn Abi Habeeb (a narrator in its chain) was a liar!”

((إن الوحوش كانت تصوم يوم عاشوراء))

Indeed the wild animals used to fast on the day of Aashoora

 Collected by Ibnil Muqri’ in ‘Mu’jam Ibnil Muqri’ 2/359 as a paraphrased hadeeth with a broken chain of narration and perhaps it is a reference to the following:

في أول يوم من رجب ركب نوح في السفينة فصام هو وجميع من معه، وجرت بهم السفينة ستة أشهر، فانتهى ذلك إلى المحرم، فاستوت السفينة على الجودي يوم عاشوراء، فصام نوح وأمر جميع من معه من الوحش والدواب فصاموا شكرا لله

On the first day of (the month) of Rajab Nooh (Noah) embarked upon the Ark and he and all those with him fasted. The Ark sailed for six months which ended with Muharram, and the Ark settled upon (mount) Joodi on the day of Aashooraa. So Nooh fasted and he commanded those with him from wild animal and beast to fast in order to give thanks to Allah

Grade: Dha’eef Jiddan (Very weak): In its chain is Abdul Ghafoor Ibn Abdil ‘Azeez Al Waasiti who is Abandoned. Imaam Haithami said concerning him ‘He is abandoned in ‘Majma’ Az Zawaa’id 3/188

 ((من اغتسل يوم عاشوراء لم يمرض إلا مرض الموت))

Whoever makes Ghusl on the day of Aashooraa then he will never become ill other than the illness he dies from

Grade: Fabricated: Imaam Suyooti mentions it alongside a number of other narrations then says: “All of them are fabricated” see Al Laali’ul Masnoo’ah 2/93

((أن الله خلق السموات والأرض يوم عاشوراء))

Indeed Allah created the heavens and earth on the day of Aashooraa

Grade: Fabricated: Abul Mahaasin Al Qawqaji mentions in Al lu’lu’ul Marsoo’ 1/54: “Fabricated“”  

((من صام يوم عاشوراء أعطي ثواب عشرة آلاف ملك))

Whosoever fasts on the day of Aashooraa will be given the reward of ten thousand Angels

((من صام يوم عاشوراء أعطي ثواب حاج ومعتمر، ومن صام يوم عاشوراء أعطي ثواب سبع سماوات ومن فيها من الملائكة، ومن أفطر عنده مؤمن في يوم عاشوراء فكأنما أفطر عنده جميع أمة محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم، ومن أشبع جائعاً يوم عاشوراء فكأنما أطعم فقراء أمة محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم وأشبع بطونهم، ومن مسح على رأس يتيم في يوم عاشوراء رفعت له بكل شعرة على رأسه درجة في الجنة)).

“Whoever fasts of the day of Aashooraa will be given the reward of Hajj and Umrah, and whoever fasts on the day of Aashooraa will be given the reward of the inhabitants of the heavens and that which is within them from the angels. Whoever has a believer break fast with him on the day of Aashooraa then it is as though the whole of the Ummah of Muhammad Sallallahu alaihi Was Salam has broken fast with him. Whosoever feeds and satisfies a hungry person on the day of Aashooraa then it is though he has fed (all of) the poor people of the Ummah of Muhammad Sallallahu alaihi Was Salam and satisfied their stomachs. Whosoever rubs the head of an orphan on the day of Aashooraa, he will be raised a level in paradise for each hair upon his head

Grade: Fabricated: Ibnil Jauzi mentions it in his book on fabricated hadeeth ‘Al maudhoo’aat’ 2/202 and Al Kanaani mentions it in ‘Tanzeeh ash Shariatil Marfoo’ah’ 2/163 and says “In it is Habeeb Ibn Abi Habeeb! (The well-known fabricator)

ما من عبد يبكي يوم قتل الحسين – يعني يوم عاشوراء – إلا كان يوم القيامة مع أولي العزم من الرسل

There is no Servant (of Allah) that cries on the day Hussain was killed i.e the day of Aashooraa except that on the day of judgement he will be with the firmly intentioned Messengers

Grade: Fabricated: Imaam Ash Shawkaani Mentions it in Al Fawaa’id Al Majmoo’ah 1/440 and says: “..”Fabricated, and similarly that which has been narrated concerning crying on the day of Aashooraa being perfect light on the day of judgement it too is fabricated. It was fabricated by the raafidhah (Shia). Imaam Adh Dhahabi said concerning it: Indeed these fabrications were brought about by this ignorant Moosaa (a reference to Jalaalud deen Musaa Ibn Mujalaa)
