Authenticity of hadeeth

Question ID: 30417

Assalamu ‘alaykum dear mufti,

1. I need to know if this hadith is authentic, dha’eef or mawdhu :
“It is therefore mentioned in a Hadith by the Beloved of Allaah, Muhammad that anyone who gives me the good news that he survived Safar, I will give him the good news of that person’s entering Paradise.”

2. Same with this statement : “In a year one Million and Eighty Thousand misfortunes descend, out of which Nine Hundred and Twenty Thousand, descend in the month of Safar”.

Jazakumullahu kheyran for your wonderful efforts.

The actual words are:
"Whoever gives me the good news of Safardeparting, I will ..."
Some people quote it with the words; "Whoever gives me the good news of thecommencement of Rabi'ul Awwal..."
(These are both the same as Rabi'ul Awwal follows Safar, so the departing of Safar actually means the starting of Rabi'ul Awwal)
This narration is classified a fabrication By Imam Saghani (rahimahullah) & Mulla 'Ali Qari (rahimahullah).
'Allamah 'Ajlooni (rahimahullah) concurs with their decision too.
