‘Offer Salah as you see me offering Salah’

Question

What is the authentication of this Hadith?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Pray as you have seen me praying”

 

Answer

Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Malik ibnul Huwayrith (radiyallahu ‘anhu). The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 631, 6008 and 7246. Also see: Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 674)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
