I want to make sure whether the following hadith is sound: It was narrated from Ma’qil ibn Yasar (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever says three times each morning, ‘A’uthu Billah il-sami’ il-‘Alim min al-shaytan il-rajim (I seek refuge with Allah, the All-Hearing, All-Knowing, from the accursed Shaytan), and recites the last three verses of Surah al-Hashr, Allah will send seventy thousand angels to send blessings upon him until evening comes, and if he dies on that day he will die a martyr. And whoever says that in the evening, will be given a similar status.”

Summary of answer

The hadith about the virtue of reciting the last three verses of Surat al-Hashr is weak.


Praise be to Allah.

This hadith was narrated by al-Tirmithi in the: Book of the virtues of the Quran , Chapter: One who recites a letter of the Quran , what reward he will have. No. 2922. Also narrated by al-Imam Ahmad in his Musnad, no. 19795

Its isnad (chain of narrators) includes Khalid ibn Tahman of whom Ibn Hajar said: He is saduq (truthful) but was accused of being a Shi’i then he became confused. (Taqrib al-Tahdhib, 1644)

It was classed as da’if (weak) by al-Albani (may Allah have mercy on him). See Da’if Abi Dawud, 2922.

There are many dhikrs (words of remembrance) for morning and evening that are narrated in sahih (authentic) reports from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). See some of them in question no. 12173 .

And Allah knows best.
