Reciting Surah Ikhlas one hundred times after Fajr

Question

Is this Hadith reliable?

Sayyiduna Wathilah ibnul Asqa’ (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates: “I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) saying, ‘Whomsoever offers Fajr Salah and then recites ‘Qul Huwallahu Ahad’ [Surah Ikhlas] one hundred times before speaking to anyone, his sins of a year would be forgiven.'”

 

Answer

Imams Ibnus Sunni and Tabarani (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith.

(‘Amalul Yawmi Wal Laylah, Hadith: 144, Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 232, volume: 22)

 

‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahullah) has declared one of the narrators extremely weak. Some Muhaddithun have also declared him a liar.

(Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 10 pg. 109,  Mizanul I’tidal, vol. 4 pg. 184, number: 7398 and Taqribut Tahdhib, 6090)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
