من بات كلا من طلب الحلال بات مغفورا له؟
This Hadith is recorded in Al-Mu’jamul Awsat of Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah)

‘Allamah ‘Iraqi (rahimahullah) commented on the chain by saying: ‘It has some weakness’

Hereunder is the Translation for the benefit of all:
Whoever spends the night tired from earning a halal livelihood, does so while being forgiven.
