Question

Is there a hadeeth which says that
one who persists in saying the first
takbeer (saying Allahu Akbar) at the
beginning of Fajr prayer for forty
days will be free of kufr (disbelief)
and hypocrisy?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.
In Shu’ab al-Eeman by al-Bayhaqi
there is a marfoo’ hadeeth (report)
narrated from Anas ibn Malik (may
Allah be pleased with him) according
to which the Prophet (peace and
blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
“Whoever prays Fajr and ‘Isha in
congregation and does not miss one
rak’ah, he will be recorded as being
free from two things: free from the
Fire and free from
hypocrisy.” (Shu’ab al-Eeman,
3/62).
It says in al-‘Ilal al-Mutanahiyah:
This hadeeth is not saheeh
(authentic) and its narrators are not
known apart from Bakr ibn Ahmad
narrating from Ya’qoob ibn
Tahiyyah, both of whose condition
is unknown. (1/432).

But a different version was narrated
in Sunan al-Tirmithi, where it says:
“Whoever prays to Allah for forty
days in congregation, catching up
with the first takbeer, he will be
recorded as being free from two
things: free from the Fire and free
from hypocrisy.” (al-Tirmithi no.
241; classed as da’eef by al-Tirmithi
but as hasan/sound by al-Albani).
This hadeeth was also classed as
da’eef by a number of earlier
scholars, who stated that it is
mursal (chain does not reach the
Companions), but it was classed as
hasan by some of the later scholars.
See Talkhees al-Habeer, 2/27.
The hadeeth is not limited to Fajr
prayer only, rather the reward
mentioned in the hadeeth is
connected to being present for the
opening takbeer of all the five daily
prayers.

Undoubtedly being keen to catch up
with the opening takbeer for this
period of time is an indication of the
strength of a person’s religious
commitment.

So long as the hadeeth can be
interpreted in a sound manner,
there is the hope that the one who
is keen to do what is mentioned
therein will attain this great virtue.
The least that he will attain by
means of this keenness is training
himself to regularly observe this
important rite of Islam.

We ask Allah to write for us and for
you freedom from hypocrisy and
from the Fire, for He is the All-
Hearing, Ever-Responsive.
