Hadith about safar

Question ID: 26961

Assalamu ‘alaykum,

I need to know the reference and authenticity of the following hadith about month of Safar :

The Prophet Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said “anyone who gives me the good news that he survived Safar, I will give him the good news of that person’s entering Paradise”.

Jazak Allaho khair.

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.
