Three parts of Salah


What is the status of this narration

عن أبي هريرة قال : قال رسول الله – صلى الله عليه وسلم –  الصلاة ثلاثة أثلاث : الطهور ثلث ، والركوع ثلث ، والسجود ثلث ، فمن أداها بحقها قبلت منه وقبل منه سائر عمله ومن ردت عليه صلاته رد عليها سائر عمله



This Hadith is recorded by Imam Bazzar (rahimahullah) on the authority of Sayyiduna Hurayrah (radiyallahu’anhu).

‘Allamahs Mundhiri and Haythami (rahimahumallah) have declared the chain as sound (hasan) (despite Imam Bazzar’s reservation).

‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahullah) has also pointed out the many other supports for it as well. These supports further strengthen the narration in question.

(Al-Bahruz Zakhar, Hadith: 9273, Targhib, Hadith: 752 and Majma’uz Zawaid, vol.2 pg.147



Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu’anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said:

‘Salah has three parts; Purification, the ruku’ and the sajdah. Whoever fulfills it like it ought to be, will have his Salah as well as all other deeds accepted. He whose Salah is rejected, will have all his other deeds rejected too.



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
