The reward of reciting Surahs Hadid, Waqi’ah and Rahman

Question

What is the source of this Hadith and is it authentic?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Whoever reads Surahs Hadid, Waqi’ah and Rahman, will be reckoned amongst the dwellers of Jannatul Firdaws (the highest level of Paradise).”

 

Answer

Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyidah Fatimah (radiyallahu ‘anha). However, he has declared the text of the Hadith unreliable (munkar).

(Shu’abul Iman, under Hadith: 2266. Also see: Faydul Qadir, Hadith: 6001)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
