Some Commonly Quoted Fabricated Ahaadeeth
Hadeeth 2 - '...were it not for you, I would not have created the Universe...'
The hadeeth, "Allaah says, 'were it not for you (O Muhammad) I would not have created the universe.'"
As-Saghaanee (d.650) said, "maudu (fabricated)" ['al-Ahaadeeth al-Mawdoo'aat' of as-Saghaanee (pg. 7)] and likewise al-Albaanee ['Silsilah ad-Da'eefah' (1/450 no.282)] ash-Shaykh Mulla Alee Qaaree (d.1014) said, "maudu, but it's meaning is correct." ['al-Asraar al-Marfoo'ah' of Alee al-Qaaree (pp 67-68)], and quotes two narrations to prove this:
- The hadeeth related by ibn Asaakir, 'were it not for you, the world would not have been created'. Ibn al-Jawzee (d.5**) related this and said, "maudu (fabricated)" ['al-Mawdoo'aat' of ibn al-Jawzee (1/288)] and likewise as-Suyutee. ['al-Laa'ee' of as-Suyutee (1/272)]
- The hadeeth related by ad-Dailamee, "O Muhammad! Were it not for you, the Garden would not have been created, and were it not for you the Fire would not have been created." Al-Albaanee said, "it is not correct to certify the correctness of it's meaning without establishing the authenticity of the narration from ad-Dailamee, which is something I have not found any of the scholars to have addressed. Suffice to know that ad-Dailamee is alone in reporting it, then I became certain of it's weakness, rather it's flimsiness when I came across it in his 'Musnad' (1/41/2)." ['Silsilah ad-Da'eefah' (1/451 no.282)]
