What is the grade of the following narration?

“When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would not perform the four rak’ah [of Sunnah] before Zuhr he would pray them after it.”



Imam Tirmidhi and Imam Ibn Majah (rahimahumallah) have recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha).

Imam ibn Majah’s version has the words ‘He would offer [the four Sunnah] after offering the two Sunnah of Zuhr’

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 426 and Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 1158)


Imam Tirmidhi has declared the Hadith sound (hasan).



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
