Reference for the benefits of praying the two sunnah of fajr at home

Question

There is a Hadith wherein the Messenger (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) was reported to have mentioned three benefits of performing the 2 Sunnah at home and then attending the Masjid for the fajr prayer.

Could you source the wording of the Hadith and its authenticity? JazakAllah khayran.

Answer

This Hadith appears in some “non-Hadith” books with the following words:

من صلى ركعتي الفجر في بيته يوسع له في رزقه ويقل المنازع بينه وبين أهله ويختم له بالإيمان

Whoever offers the 2 (sunnah) of Fajr in his home will have his sustenance expanded, the quarrels with his family decreased and he will die with iman

(Maraqil Falah, pg.384-385)

 

I haven’t found this in a Hadith book.

 

One should be cautious when a Hadith (like the one in question) is untraceable in any original Hadith source, until its authenticity can be verified.

 

Update: ‘Allamah Sakhawi (rahimahullah) has declared this narration as a fabrication.

(Al-Ajwibatul Mardiyyah, Hadith: 247)

 

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
