I had requested this site to provide complete answers and quote the narrations so people don't get confused. But of course they are South Africans so they know best!
Narration from Bayhaqi:
(حديث مرفوع) أَخْبَرَنَا أَبُو طَاهِرٍ الْفَقِيهُ ، أنا أَبُو طَاهِرٍ الْمُحَمَّدَابَادِيُّ ، نا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ يُوسُفَ السُّلَمِيُّ ، نا سَعِيدُ بْنُ سُلَيْمَانَ ، نا هَيَّاجٌ ، نا عَنْبَسَةُ بْنُ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ سَعِيدِ بْنِ الْعَاصِ ، عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ زَاذَانَ ، عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ حُسَيْنٍ ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ ، قال : قال رسول اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : " مَنِ اعْتَكَفَ عَشْرًا فِي رَمَضَانَ كَانَ كَحَجَّتَيْنِ وَعُمْرَتَيْنِ " . وَإِسْنَادُهُ ضَعِيفٌ وَمَا قَبْلَهُ فِيهِ ضَعْفٌ ، وَاللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ .
In Kashful Ghummah, Allahmah Sharaani relates a Hadith wherein Rasulullah S.W. said, “Whoever performs I’itikaaf for the final ten days of Ramadhaan, for him is the reward of two Haj and two Umrahs and whoever performs I’itikaaf from Maghrib until ‘Ishaa’ doing nothing except performing ‘salaah and reciting the Qur'aan Allah will prepare a palace in Jannah”.
Its the same story with Fadhail-e-Aamaal i.e. Shaykh (RA) has not quoted any fabrications knowingly, he usually quotes on the authority of someone and others say its fabricated while the original author may think of it as weak or even extremely weak (but not fabrication).
Shaykh Zakarriya (RA) quotes on the authority of another Muhadith who doesn't think that it’s a fabrication. He (RA) then quotes it from Imam Bayhaqi (RA) who clearly didn’t label it as a fabrication.
Not quoting the narration is therefore a subjective call. Sufi or no Sufi books of Ahadeeth are filled with such narrations and unless you can prove that he quoted a fabrication deliberately it’s a “subjective call”.
I personally think Riyadus-Saliheen should be used by TJs instead of Fadhail-e-Aamaal but that’s also just my opinion.
You & I have our opinion and Shaykh Zakariyya (RA) and others disagree, not the end of the world.
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
