What is the status of this Hadith?
Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
‘Whoever says three times when he gets up in the morning: ‘A’udhu billahis sami’il ‘alim minash shaytanir rajim’ and he recites the last three verses of Surah Al-Hashr Allah appoints seventy thousand (70 000) angels who say make du’a for forgiveness on behalf of him until the evening. If he dies on that day, he dies a martyr, and whoever reaches the evening, he holds the same status.”
This Hadith is recorded in Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 2922 with a slightly weak chain, that has sufficient support from other narrations. Hafiz Ibn Hajar (rahimahullah) has cited these supports for it in Nataijul Afkar, vol.2 pg. 405-406.
This Hadith is therefore suitable for practice.
