Is the hadith of the old woman who used to throw garbage in the path of the prophet(saw) authentic?

1 Answer
It doesn't seem to appear in any book of authenticated ahadith - can anyone provide a reference? Or can we discount it as da'if?

In a Nutshell:
It's a fabrication, declared fabricated by Maulana Ishaq and Faraz Rabbani.

The story says a Jewish woman in Mecca used to throw rubbish on the Prophet's (saw) doorstep in defiance of his message. One day she was sick and did not throw rubbish. The Prophet (saw) went to visit her and she was so amazed at his character she accepted Islam.

This hadith has no basis incident in the books of hadeeth nor reliable seerah works.
