Protecting all aspects of Salah ensures safety from Jahannam

Question

Could you provide the reference for the following Hadith?

من حافظ على الصلوات الخمس على وضوئها ومواقيتها، وركوعها وسجودها يراها حقا لله عليه حرم على النار

 

Answer

Imam Ahmad (rahimahullah) has recorded these words on the authority of Sayyiduna Hanzalah Al Katib (radiyallahu ‘anhu) with a good chain.

(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 4 pg. 267. Refer: Targhib, vol. 1 pg. 247)

 

Translation

The fire [of Jahannam] is impermissible for the one who guards the five Salah, their wudu, offers them at the correct time, [perfects] the ruku’ and sajdah and regards Salah to be the right of Allah over him.

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
