I heard a khateeb (orator) mention
a hadeeth (narration) from the
Prophet (peace and blessings of
Allah be upon him): “The sleep of
the fasting person is worship.”
Is this hadeeth saheeh (authentic)?


Praise be to Allah
This hadeeth is not saheeh, and it is
not proven from the Prophet (peace
and blessings of Allah be upon
Al-Bayhaqi narrated in Shu’ab al-
Eeman (3/1437) from ‘Abd-Allah ibn
Abi Awfa (may Allah be pleased with
him) that the Prophet (peace and
blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
“The sleep of the fasting person is
worship, his silence is tasbeeh
(glorification), his du’a
(supplication) is answered and his
good deeds will be multiplied.” Its
isnad (chain of narration) was
classed as weak by al-Bayhaqi who
said: Ma’roof ibn Hassan (one of the
men in the isnad) is da’eef (weak)
and Sulayman ibn ‘Amr al-Nakha’i is
weaker than him. Al-‘Iraqi said in
Takhreej Ihya’ ‘Uloom al-Deen
(1/310): Sulayman al-Nakha’i is one
of the liars. It was classed as da’eef
by al-Manawi in Fayd al-Qadeer
(9293) and it was mentioned by al-
Albani in Silsilat al-Ahadeeth al-
Da’eefah (4696) who said: It is

What the Muslims should do in
general – and this applies even more
so to khateebs and da’iyahs (callers
to Islam) – is to verify reports
before attributing a hadeeth to the
Messenger of Allah (peace and
blessings of Allah be upon him). It is
not permissible to attribute to him
anything that he did not say. He
(peace and blessings of Allah be
upon him) said: “Telling a lie about
me is not like telling a lie about
anyone else. Whoever tells a lie
about me deliberately, let him take
his place in Hell.” Narrated by al-
Bukhari (1391) and by Muslim in the
introduction to his Saheeh (4).
And Allah knows best.
