Question

My wife came across this hadith.
It doesnt sound correct to me but I am obviously not sure.Narrated by Abu Hurayrah:
"The war of the end of time is the war of the world. There will be a third war after two great wars in which many are killed. He who will light the fires of the first/second world war will be known as the 'Great Leader' and then the world speaks the name (Hitler). 1300 years after the Hijra, count a few decades. At that time, the Greek King wants to wage a war against the entire world. Meanwhile, Allah commands the war for that man. A short while later, that is, in two decades, a man whose name is associated with a cat name from the (German) lands, appears as a scourge on the Romans. He starts to bother people and wants to hold control over the world. He wages war against the entire world, both the warm and cold lands. After years filled with severe war fires, he meets Allah's punishment. Then, he is killed as the Russians' mystery. Count five or six or seven or eight decades after 1300 of Hijra. At that time, a man called "Nasser" rules Egypt. Arabs call him "succa-ul Arab" (the "brave of the Arabs"). Allah disgraces him twice, once in a war, and then in another one, in which that "Nasser" can never attain victory. Then Allah grants victory to Egypt in the most beloved month of Allah. Upon this, Allah, the Lord of the House, makes a dark-colored person, whose father is more enlightened than himself, the leader of the Egyptian people

Answer

Praise be to Allah.

These words are false and have no basis, and cannot be attributed to the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) or be thought to be his words, by anyone who has the slightest knowledge of Islam and sharee‘ah, or the slightest share of reason and has any sense of shame that would prevent him from fabricating lies about the Lord of the Worlds. 

Rather these words were attributed to him by one of the charlatans of modern times, may Allah deal with him as he deserves, quoting from a manuscript, according to his false claim. He said that it is to be found in a manuscript in Turkey! 

What would any rational person think of that which is stated by a person who has no connection to knowledge, from an unknown source, the status of which he does not know? 

Why the books of the Sunnah and compilations of hadith not refer to this momentous news, if it has any basis, and how could this unknown, ignorant man have learned about it? 

“Glory be to You (O Allah), this is a great lie” [an-Noor 24:16]. 

To conclude, attributing these words to the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) is among the gravest of lies and fabrications. The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever narrates a hadeeth from me knowing that it is false is one of the liars.” Narrated by Muslim in the Introduction to as-Saheeh (1/7). 

An-Nawawi (may Allah have mercy on him) said: 

This is a stern warning against lying and coming anywhere near lying, and it indicates that whoever thinks that what he is narrating is false, but still narrates it, is a liar. How can he not be a liar, when he is narrating something that did not happen? End quote.

One of the things which indicate that this hadith is fabricated is its stilted language, because the speech of the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) was the most eloquent and clearest of speech after the Holy Qur’an.
