A virtue of saying 'La ilaha illallah wahdahu..' one hundred times daily

Question

Is the following authentic?

Whoever recites لا إله إلا الله وحده لا شريك له له الملك وله الحمد وهو على كل قدير (La ilaha illallahu wahdahu la sharika lahu lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu wa huwa ‘ala kulli shay in qadir) one hundred times in the day will receive the reward of freeing 10 slaves, one hundred rewards will be written for him and one hundred  sins wiped away, and he will be protected from Shaytan for the remainder of the day.

Answer

Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 3293 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2691)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
