Hadeeth on giving another good news of Rajab or Muharram

I have heard the hadeeth “The Holy Prophet (Sallallaahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) said ‘Whoever is the first to give another person the news of this month (Rajab), the fire of Hell is haraam for him/her’”.

I have also heard this same hadeeth although pertaining to Muharram and Rabi‘ul Awwal. Is it saheeh or hasan or da‘eef. Or is it outright mawdoo’ (fabrication)? PLEASE CLARIFY IT!

Respected Brother/Sister in Islam

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh

These are fabrications.

And Allah Knows Best.
