Question

I have received via e-mail a hadeeth
attributed to the Prophet (peace and
blessings of Allah be upon him), and
I have seen it in more than one
discussion board. The one who
wrote it says that he received it via
e-mail.
This is the text of the hadeeth:
The Messenger of Allah (peace and
blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
“O ‘Ali, do not sleep until you have
done five things, which are: reading
the entire Quran, giving four
thousand dirhams in charity,
preserving your place in Paradise
and placating your opponent.”
‘Ali said: “And how could I do that,
O Messenger of Allah?”
The Messenger of Allah (peace and
blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
“Do you not know, O ‘Ali, that if you
recite Qul huwa Allahu Ahad (i.e.,
Surah al-Ikhlas) three times, it is as
if you have recited the entire
Quran? And that if you recite Surah
al-Fatihah four times it is as if you
have given four thousand dirhams
in charity? And that if you say La
ilaha ill-Allah wahdahu la shareeka
lah, lahu’l-mulk wa lahu’l-hamd
yuhyi wa yameet wa huwa ‘ala kulli
shayin qadeer (There is no god but
Allah alone with no partner or
associate. His is the Dominion and
to Him be praise, He gives life and
death and He is able to do all
things) ten times, you will preserve
your place in Paradise? And if you
say Astaghfir-Allah alladhi la ilaha
illa huwa al-hayy al-qayyoom wa
atoobu ilayh (I seek the forgiveness
of Allah beside Whom there is no
other god, the Ever-Living, the
Eternal, and I repent to Him) ten
times, you will have placated your
opponent.” Then they concluded by
saying:
The Messenger of Allah (peace and
blessings of Allah be upon him)
indeed has spoken the truth.
Is this hadeeth (narration) saheeh
(authentic)?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.
This hadeeth is false and fabricated
(mawdoo’).
The scholars of the Standing
Committee said concerning this
hadeeth:
This hadeeth has no basis, rather it
is one of the fabricated reports and
lies made up by some of the Shi’ah,
as has been pointed out by the
imams (leading scholars) of
hadeeth.
Fatawa al-Lajnah al-Daimah, 4/462,
463.

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Salih
al-‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have
mercy on him) was asked about this
and he said:
This hadeeth which says that the
Prophet (peace and blessings of
Allah be upon him) gave this advice
to ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (may Allah be
pleased with him) is a lie that was
fabricated against the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allah be
upon him). It is not correct to
attribute it to the Messenger (peace
and blessings of Allah be upon him),
because “whoever narrates a
hadeeth from the Prophet (peace
and blessings of Allah be upon him)
which he thinks is false is himself
one of the liars,” and “whoever tells
lies about the Prophet (peace and
blessings of Allah be upon him)
deliberately, let him take his place
in Hell.” But if it is mentioned in
order to explain that it is fabricated
and to warn people against it, this is
something which will be rewarded.

The point is that this hadeeth is a
lie against the Prophet (peace and
blessings of Allah be upon him) and
against ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (may Allah
be pleased with him).
Fatawa Islamiyyah, 4/111
And Allah knows best.
