Are these hadiths authentic?
Ali (radiyallahu’anhu) said:
“About a man who did not read the last three verses of Surah Baqarah at night, I can not say that he is intelligent”
‘Umar (radiyallahu’anhu) said: “An intelligent man does not go to sleep without reading the last part of Surah Baqarah.”
This statement has been recorded from Sayyiduna ‘Umar and Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu’anhuma).
Most sources have it from the latter (Sayyiduna ‘Ali) with an authentic chain, and is better quoted as such.
