A Huge reward for reciting Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim?

Question

Is this Hadith authentic?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Whomsoever recites Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim once, Allah Ta’ala will record for each letter, four thousand good deeds, Allah will erase four thousand evil deeds and will raise his rank [in Jannah] by four thousand”

 

Answer

Imam Daylami (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Al Firdaws, Hadith: 5573, Dar Al Kitab Al ‘Arabi edition)

 

However, there are several narrators in the chain whom I could not locate and can therefore not verify the authenticity.

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
