What is the status of the following Hadith:

“Whoever will recite Surah Dukhan on the Eve of Friday, by morning he is forgiven and he will be wed to a Hur (damsel of Jannah)”


Imam Darimi (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration as the statement of a senior Tabi’i, Abu Rafi’ (rahimahullah) and not as a Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam). The narration should be quoted as such.

(Sunan  Darimi, Hadith: 3464)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
