The reward for sleeping with wudu

Question

What is the authenticity of the following Hadith?

الطاهر النائم كالصائم القائم

 

Answer

Imam Daylami (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration. ‘Allamah ‘Iraqi (rahimahullah) has declared the chain weak.

(Musnadul Firdaws, Hadith: 3981, ‘ilmiyyah edition. Refer: Al Mughni ‘An Hamlil Asfar, Hadith: 321, Faydul Qadir, Hadith: 5335)

 

The Hadith is suitable to quote for virtues and encouragement, as is the case with Hadiths of this nature.

 

Translation

The one who sleeps in the state of wudu is like a fasting person who offers Salah at night.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
