Can you please tell me if this Hadith is found in any of the Hadith books. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said to Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu):
“O ‘Ali, Give four thousand dinar in sadaqah daily, read a whole Quran daily, pay the price of Jannah daily, make peace between two fighting persons daily.
Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said, ‘O Rasulullah, that is difficult for me. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) told him, recite Surah Fatihah four times before sleeping, you will get the reward of giving four thousand dinar in sadaqah, recite Surah Ikhlas thrice before sleeping, you will receive the reward of reading the entire Quran, recite ‘La ilaha ill-Allah wahdahu la sharika lah lahul mulku wa lahul hamd yuhyi wa yumit wa huwa ‘ala kulli shay’in qadir ten times before sleeping, You have secured your place in Jannah. Recite Astaghfirullah ten times before sleeping, you will be rewarded for making peace between two fighting persons.
I was unable to locate this Hadith in any authentic Hadith book.
One should be cautious and abstain from quoting a Hadith (like the one in question) when the Hadith is untraceable in any original Hadith source, until its authenticity can be verified.
Kindly see here for more posts regarding the virtues of Surah Ikhlas, Surah Fatihah and others.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
