Could you verify the following Hadith?
من قرأ يس والصافات ليلة الجمعة ثم سأل الله أعطاه سؤله
Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever recites Surah Yasin and Saffat on the night of Jumu’ah, and then asks Allah, Allah will grant him his request”
Imam Daylami (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma). However, the chain consists of a fabricator. The Hadith should not be quoted.
(Refer: Dhaylul La-Alil Masnu’ah, vol. 1 pg. 118, Hadith: 126 and Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 1 pg. 298)
See here for another virtue of reciting Surah Yasin on Friday eve.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
