Is this narration authentic?

من صلى علي ليلة الجمعة أو يوم الجمعة مئة مرة غفر الله له خطيئة ثمانين سنة

Whoever sends one hundred salutations [durud] upon me on the eve of Friday or on Friday, Allah will forgive eighty years of sins.



This narration is cited in non primary sources.

(Sharaful Mustafa, vol. 5 pg. 102, Hadith: 2044, Bustanul Wa’izin of Imam Ibnul Jawzi, pg. 28, Al Mustatraf, vol. 2 pg. 472. Also see: Al Qawlul Badi’, pg. 398-399)


I have not come across the complete chain for this narration stating ‘one hundred times.’ In a weak narration, there is mention of sending salutations ‘eighty times’. See here

(Also see: Ithafus Sadah Al Muttaqin, vol. 3 pg. 286)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
