Good deeds at the time of zawal

Question

What is the authenticity of the following?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would recite four rak’ahs after the sun moves from it’s zenith, before Zuhr and he said, “This is a time when the doors of the sky are opened, so I love that a righteous deed should be raised up for me in it.”

 

Answer

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Saib (radiyallahu ‘anhuma). He has declared the Hadith sound (hasan).

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 478)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
