Question :

"If a woman makes Ghusl after her menstrual cycle ends and offers two Rakhas in which she recites Chapter Al-Fatehah and  Chapter Al-Ikhlas, three times in each Rakah, Allah forgives all her sins, be they minor or major, she isn`t held accountable to any sin until her next menstrual period, Allah grants her the reward of sixty martyrs, builds her a city in Jannah, grants her light for evey hair on her head, and in case she dies before her next period she is considered a martyr." How authentic is this Hadith?


The Answer :

All perfect praise be to Allah the Lord of the Worlds. May His peace and blessings be upon Prophet Mohammad and upon all his family and companions.


This Hadith has no origin in the Prophetic Sunnah. In fact, exaggerating the reward indicates that this Hadith is fabricated. In addition, this Hadith wasn`t mentioned in the books of Hadith or those of eminent scholars. Rather, it was mentioned by Sheikh AbdulRahman Al-Safouri (Died 894 H) in his book entitled {Nozhat al-Majalis wa Montakhab an-Nafa`eis, P.240}. The latter isn`t a reliable book of Hadith and the Prophetic Sunnah is replete with authentic Hadiths that substitute for such fabricated Hadith. And Allah the Almighty knows best.
