What is the authenticity of the following Hadith?
الطاهر النائم كالصائم القائم
Imam Daylami (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration. ‘Allamah ‘Iraqi (rahimahullah) has declared the chain weak.
(Musnadul Firdaws, Hadith: 3981, ‘ilmiyyah edition. Refer: Al Mughni ‘An Hamlil Asfar, Hadith: 321, Faydul Qadir, Hadith: 5335)
The Hadith is suitable to quote for virtues and encouragement, as is the case with Hadiths of this nature.
The one who sleeps in the state of wudu is like a fasting person who offers Salah at night.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
