Weak Hadeeth #2: Friday prayer is the Hajj of a miskeen

3761 –  ” الجمعة حج المساكين

A part of a lengthy tradition states (Rough translation) :

A man once came to the Messenger of Allah (sallahu `alayhi wa sallam) and said : ” Ya rasool Allah i have many times intended to perform Hajj but never got the virtue to do so. The Prophet (salallahu `alayhi wa sallam) said : ” Perform the prayer of Jumu`ah, for Al-Jumu`ah is the Hajj for Miskeen


Imam as-Subki in أحاديث الإحياء التي لا أصل لها للسبكي  (page 50 – narration 3761) says this narration has no `asl

Likewise Imam Shawkani said the same in Fawaid al-Majmoo`at (page 437)

Imam أبو الفضائل الصغاني has put this narration in his Mawdoo`at (أحاديث موضوعة و ضعيفة – page 50)

Imam al-Haafidh `Iraaqi says in Takhreej al-Ihya (8/261 or 3/159 or 4/166)  that it’s
sanad is dha`eef

Imaam Ibn Hajar said in Leesan al-Mezaan (6/257) that this is weak and `Isa ibn Ibraahim in this has been criticized

As-Suyuti in Jaami` as-sagheer (3635) said it’s Dha`eef, And agreed by Shaykh Albaanee in Dha`eef al-Jaami` (2659)
