Engaging in ‘ibadah between Zuhr and ‘Asr and Maghrib and ‘Isha

Question

Is this Hadith authentic?

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) relates that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “One who remains awake [in ‘ibadah] between Zuhr and Asr and Maghrib and Isha, will be forgiven and two angels will intercede for him.”

 

Answer

This narration is recorded in At Targhib Fi Fadailil A’amal of Imam Ibn Shahin (rahimahullah).

(At Targhib Fi Fadailil A’amal, Hadith: 81)

 

Al-Shawkani has quoted ‘Allamah ‘Iraqi (rahimahullah) who has declared one of the narrators unknown (majhul). I could also not locate another narrator in the chain.

(Naylul Awtar, vol. 2 pg. 240)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
