What is the status of the following narration?

من جعل عبادته الصلاة علي قضى الله له حاجة الدنيا والآخرة

Translation: Whoever dedicates his worship solely to sending salutations upon me, Allah will fulfill his needs of this world as well as the Hereafter.



This narration appears in non primary sources. I have not come across the chain and could therefore not verify the authenticity.

(Al Mustatraf Fi Kulli Fannim Mustazraf, vol. 2 pg. 472)


However, in authentic narrations, Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) has informed us that through the blessings of sending excessive salutations [durud], Allah Ta’ala will take care of a person’s worldly needs as well as his needs of the Hereafter.

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2457 and Musnad Ahmad, vol. 5 pg. 136, Hadith: 21242. See here and here)


Also see here for another narration regarding sending salutations on Friday which will be a means of one’s needs being fulfilled.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
