What is the authenticity of the following Hadith which specifically mentions between Maghrib and ‘Isha:
Whomsoever recites Surah Sajdah and Surah Mulk between Maghrib and ‘Isha, it is as though he has stood up in ‘ibadah on Laylatul Qadr.
This narration is recorded in Tafsir ibn Marduyah. However, it has been declared a fabrication. It is therefore not suitable to quote.
(Refer: Ad Durrul Manthur, beginning of Surah Sajdah, vol. 11 pg. 671 and Tafsir Ruhul Ma’ani, beginning of Surah Sajdah, vol. 21 pg. 121. Also see: Al Kafish Shaf, Hadith: 868 )
Reciting these Surahs every night have been proven from other Hadiths. See here.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
