Islam Question and Answer - Falseness of the hadeeth about Adam praying by virtue of Muhammad (blessings and peace be upon them both)

Falseness of the hadeeth about Adam praying by virtue of Muhammad (blessings and peace be upon them both)
I read this hadeeth and I would like to know whether it is saheeh or not. 

“When Adam committed his sin, he said, ‘O Lord, I ask You by virtue of Muhammad to forgive me.’ Allaah said, ‘O Adam, how do you know of Muhammad when I have not yet created him?’ He said, ‘O Lord, when You created me with Your own hand, and breathed into me the soul that You created, I raised my head and saw written on the pillars of the Throne, Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah Muhammad Rasool Allaah [There is no god but Allaah, Muhammadi s the messenger of Allaah]. Then I knew that You would not mention in conjunction with Your name any but the most beloved of Your creation to You.’ Allaah said, ‘You have spoken the truth, O Adam. He is indeed the most beloved of My creation to Me. Pray to me by virtue of Him, for I have forgiven you. Were it not for Muhammad, I would not have created you.’”.

Praise be to Allaah.

This hadeeth is mawdoo’ (fabricated).
It was narrated by al-Haakim via ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Muslim al-Fahri (who said), Ismaa’eel ibn Muslimah narrated to us, ‘Abd al-Rahmaan ibn Zayd ibn
Aslam told us, from his father, from his grandfather, from ‘Umar ibn al-Khattaab (may Allaah be pleased with him), that he said: The Messenger of
Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, “When Adam committed his sin…” Then he quoted the hadeeth as the questioner quoted

Al-Haakim said: The isnaad of this hadeeth is

This is what al-Haakim said! But a number of
scholars rebuked him and denounced him for classing this hadeeth as saheeh. They ruled that this hadeeth is false and fabricated, and they pointed
out that al-Haakim contradicted himself when commenting on this hadeeth. 

There follow some of their comments: 

Al-Dhahabi said, criticizing the words of
al-Haakim quoted above: 

Rather it is mawdoo’ (fabricated), and ‘Abd
al-Rahmaan is not reliable, and I do not know who ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Muslim al-Fahri is. 

Al-Dhahabi also said in Meezaan
al-I’tidaal: It is a false report. 

Al-Haafiz Ibn Hajar agreed with him in
Lisaan al-Meezaan. 

Al-Bayhaqi said:  

‘Abd al-Rahmaan ibn Zayd ibn Aslam is the
only one who narrated it with this isnaad, and he is da’eef (weak). Ibn Katheer agreed with him in al-Bidaayah wa’l-Nihayyah, 2/323. 

Al-Albaani said in al-Silsilah al-Da’eefah,
25: (it is) mawdoo’. 

Al-Haakim himself (may Allaah forgive him) accused ‘Abd al-Rahmaan ibn Zayd of being a
fabricator of hadeeth, so how could his hadeeth be saheeh? 

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah said in
al-Qaa’idah al-Jaleelah fi’l-Tawassul wa’l-Waseelah (p. 69): 

Al-Haakim’s narration of this hadeeth is
something for which he was denounced, and he himself said in his book al-Madkhil ila Ma’rifat al-Saheeh ‘an al-Saqeem:  

‘Abd al-Rahmaan ibn Zayd ibn Aslam narrated fabricated ahaadeeth from his father, and it is
obvious to any competent hadeeth scholar that he is the one to blame for fabricating ahaadeeth. I say: ‘Abd al-Rahmaan ibn Zayd ibn Aslam is
da’eef (weak) because he made a lot of mistakes.

 See Silsilat al-Ahaadeeth al-Da’eefah
by al-Albaani, 1/38-47.
