Hadith: Whoever Gives me The Good News Of Safar Departing/Commencing



I need to know if this Hadith is authentic:

Anyone who gives me the good news that he survived Safar, I will give him the good news of that person’s entering Paradise


The actual words are:

 “Whoever gives me the good news of Safar departing, I will give him the good news of him entering paradise.”

Some people quote it with the words; “Whoever gives me the good news of the commencement 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 as a fabrication By Imam Saghani (rahimahullah) and Mulla ‘Ali Qari (rahimahullah).

‘Allamah ‘Ajluni (rahimahullah) concurs with their decision.
