Question

There is a hadeeth (prophetic
narration) which says, “Whoever
prays four rak’ahs on Saturday
night, reciting in each rak’ah the
Opening of the Book [al-Fatihah]
once, and Qul Huwwa Allahu Ahad
[Surah al-Ikhlas] twenty-five times,
Allah will forbid his body to the
Fire.” Is this hadeeth saheeh
(authentic) or not?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.
This hadeeth is fabricated. It was
quoted by al-Shawkani (may Allah
have mercy on him) in al-Fawaid al-
Majmoo’ah fi’l-Ahadeeth al-
Mawdoo’ah (p.44), as quoted in the
question. He said: It was narrated
by al-Jawzaqani from Anas (may
Allah be pleased with him) in a
marfoo’ report (i.e. attributed to the
Prophet (peace and blessings of
Allah be upon him)). But it is
mawdoo’ (fabricated), and the men
of its isnad (chain of narrators) are
either majhool (unknown) or
matrook (rejected).
Prayer at night is mustahabb
(recommended) on all days, and is
not restricted to what is mentioned
in this fabricated hadeeth.
Allah says (interpretation of the
meaning):

“Their sides forsake their beds, to
invoke their Lord in fear and hope,
and they spend (in charity in Allah’s
Cause) out of what We have
bestowed on them.
No person knows what is kept
hidden for them of joy as a reward
for what they used to do.”
[32:16-17]
“Verily, the Muttaqoon (the pious)
will be in the midst of Gardens and
Springs (in the Paradise),
Taking joy in the things which their
Lord has given them. Verily, they
were before this Muhsinoon (good-
doers).

They used to sleep but little by
night [invoking their Lord (Allah)
and praying, with fear and hope].
And in the hours before dawn, they
were (found) asking (Allah) for
forgiveness.” [51:15-18]
Al-Tirmithi (3549) narrated from
Abu Umamah (may Allah be pleased
with him) that the Messenger of
Allah (peace and blessings of Allah
be upon him) said: “I urge you to
pray qiyam al-layl (the optional
night prayer), because that was the
habit of the righteous who came
before you; it will bring you closer
to your Lord, expiate for bad deeds
and keep you away from sin.”

Classed as hasan (sound) by al-
Albani in Irwa al-Ghaleel, 452.
And Allah knows best.
