Is the following Hadith reliable?
“The one who sends one hundred durud [salutations] upon me, Allah writes between his two eyes that this person is free from hypocrisy and hell fire and on the day of judgement, he will be kept with the martyrs.”
Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu).
(Al Mu’jamul Awsat, Hadith: 7231)
The above Hadith has been transmitted with a weak chain but is suitable to practice upon.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
