(8): It was narrated that Allah, The Almighty, said: (O My slave, you have spoken the truth and you have given a truthful witness and thus let glad tidings be for you…)
The Verification of the Hadeeth: It is a fabricated Hadeeth.
It was reported by Al-Haakim in his book At-Ta'reekh, Abu Ash-Shaykh in the chapter of Al-Athaan as in Al-Jaami‘ Al-Kabeer (1178) from the route of ‘Umar ibn Subh from Muqaatil ibn Hayaan from Zayd Al-‘Amyy from Anas ibn Maalik, may Allaah be pleased with him, as a Marfoo‘ Hadeeth that the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: "If the Mua'ththin (caller to prayer) starts Athaan (call to prayer), the Lord puts His Hand on his (Mua'ththin) head until he finishes Athaan. The Mua'ththin is forgiven as far as his voice reaches and when he finishes, the Lord says as what was stated above."
It is a fabricated Hadeeth because its chain of transmission has ‘Umar ibn Subh At-Tameemi. Abu Haatim and Ibn ‘Adyy said: "His Hadeeth is Munkar"
Al-Azdi deemed him liar. Ad-Daarqutuni said: "His Hadeeth is Matrook ." An-Nasaa'i said: "He is not trustworthy." Al-Haafith, may Allaah have mercy upon him, said: "His Hadeeth is Matrook and Ibn Rahawiyyah deemed him liar." (1)
Ash-Shawkaani said: "Its Isnaad (chain of transmission) includes ‘Umar ibn Subh who used to fabricate Hadeeths."
