Is the following virtue authentic?
Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“Whomsoever recites Surah Ikhlas one hundred (100) times on a Friday in Ramadan, it will be a guiding light for him into Jannah”
Imam Daylami (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) with an extremely weak chain. ‘Allamah Suyuti (rahimahullah) has cited this Hadith in his book on fabricated Hadiths.
The Hadith is not suitable to quote.
(Dhaylul La-Alil Masnu’ah, vol. 1 pg. 132, Hadith: 150, Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 1 pg. 302. Also see: Lisanul Mizan, vol. 7 pg. 133, number: 6778)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
