Different wordings of a du’a

Question

In a previous Hadith Answer regarding the dua ‘Allahumma la tu’minna makrak’, the reference was given of Al-Firdaws of Imam Daylami.

However in the version of Imam Daylami I have seen it is ‘La turina makrak’.

Hafiz Sakhawi (rahimahullah) has also quoted it as ‘La tu’minna makrak’.

Which version is better to take ‘la turina’ or ‘la tu’minna’. Is it okay to take ‘la tu’minna’ if it is not in the primary source?

One Fard equals seventy Nafl

Question

There is the Hadith:

“The first among the doings of a person to be reckoned for on the Day of Judgement shall be his salah. A person will succeed and attain his goal if his salah is accepted, and he will fail and lose badly if it rejected. If any deficiency is found in his Fard salah, Allah will say (to the Angels): “Look for any Nafl salah in his account.’ Then the deficiency in his Fard salah will be made good for with his Nafl salah. The rest of his religious practices (fasts, zakah, etc.) will then be reckoned for in the same manner.”

I had read that for one fard rakat, 70 rakats of nafl will be required to make up for the fard. Please confirm this.
