A form of durud [salutation] attributed to Sayyiduna Zaynul ‘Abidin (rahimahullah)

Question

Is this form of salutation [durud] which is attributed to Imam Zaynul ‘Abidin ‘Ali ibn Al Husayn (rahimahullah) authentic?

اللهم صل على محمد في الأولين وصل على محمد في الآخرين وصل على محمد إلى يوم الدين اللهم صل على محمد شاباً فتياً وصل على محمد كهلاً مرضياً، وصل على محمد رسولاً نبياً، اللهم صل على محمد حتى ترضى، وصل على محمد بعد الرضى، وصل على محمد أبداً ابداً

 

Answer

This part cited above is part of a lengthy form of salutation attributed to Sayyiduna Zaynul ‘Abidin. However, ‘Allamah Sakhawi (rahimahullah) has stated that he has not come across the chain of narrators.

The attribution to Sayyiduna Zaynul ‘Abidin can therefore not be verified.

(Al Qawlul Badi’, pg. 128-129)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
