Reciting Surah Yasin on the eve of Friday

Question

Is this this Hadith authentic?

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Whoever recites Surah Yasin on the eve of Friday he will be forgiven by morning”

 

Answer

Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration with a weak chain. The narration states ‘Whoever recites  Surah Dukhan and Surah Yasin on the eve of Friday he will be forgiven by morning’

(Shu’abul Iman, Hadith: 2248)

 

However, Imam Malik (rahimahullah) and others have recorded the following narration:

Sayyiduna Jundub ibn ‘Abdullah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever recites Surah Yasin at night seeking the pleasure of Allah, His sins will be forgiven.”

(Muwatta Imam Malik)

Imam ibn Hibban has classified this Hadith as sahih; Sahih ibn Hibban vol. 6 pg. 312 (see: Targhib vol. 2 pg. 377).

 

The above Hadith is general and includes Friday eve.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
