The virtue of offering Fajr and ‘Asr Salah

Question

What is the authenticity of this Hadith?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“He who offers Salah before the rising of the sun and before its setting, [i.e. Fajr and ‘Asr], would not enter Jahannam.”

 

Answer

Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Umarah ibn Ruwaybah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). The Hadith is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 634)

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
