Reciting ‘Hasbiyallahu la ilaha illa hu’ seven times


I would like to ask the authenticity of the Hadith which states “Whoever says seven times in the morning and evening ‘HasbiyAllahu la ilaha illa huw ‘alayhi tawakkaltu wa huwa Rabbul ‘Arshil ‘Adhim‘, Allah Ta’ala will take care of his worries.”

Meaning of being protected from ‘destruction by sin’


Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

“Whoever says the following ten times, at the end of every Fajr prayer, while his feet are still folded, before speaking:

La ilaha illallahu, wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu, yuhyi wa yumitu, wa huwa ‘ala kulli shayin qadir

(Translation: None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, Alone without partner, to Him belongs all that exists, and to Him is the praise, He gives life and causes death, and He is powerful over all things.)

Ten good deeds shall be written for him, ten sins will be wiped away from him, ten degrees shall be raised up for him, and he shall be in security all that day from every disliked thing, and he shall be in protection from Shaytan, and no sin will meet him or destroy him that day, except for associating partners with Allah.

My question is: 

Does this mean that it is impossible for a person to commit a sin on that day and does this include all major and minor sins?

Are we allowed to change the words of the masnun du’as to suit the appropriate tense or gender?

Like if the du’a is with the male tense, can a female change it when she recites it?

And can the imam change the singular into plural to include the congregation?
