Inauthentic Narrations regarding the Virtues of Certain Surahs: Sheikh ibn ‘Uthaymeen

The following questions were posed to Sheikh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen during the program Fataawaa Noor ‘alaa al-Darb:

السؤال: أحسن الله إليكم. من دولة الإمارات العربية المتحدة، من دبي هذه السائلة التي أرسلت بمجموعة من الأسئلة، ورمزت لأسمها ف. هـ.ع  دبي تقول في هذا السؤال: أسأل عن صحة هذه الأحاديث، قال الرسول صلى الله عليه وسلم: «من قرأ حم الدخان في ليلة أصبح يستغفر له سبعون ألف ملك»؟

Moderator: May Allah endow you with good. We have a question here from a women in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates who has sent a series of questions and signed her name as F.H.A. Dubai. She says: I want to ask about the authenticity of some ahaadeeth. Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “Whoever recites surah al-Dukhaan (44) during the night, he will wake up with seventy thousand angels seeking forgiveness for him.”

الجواب: الشيخ: نعم هذا ضعيف لا يستقيم . ـ

Sheikh: Yes, this is a weak hadeeth with no basis.

السؤال: الحديث الثاني: قال الرسول صلى الله عليه وسلم: «من قرأ سورة الواقعة كل ليلة لم تصبه فاقة أبدا»؟

Moderator: The second hadeeth: Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “Whoever recites surah al-Waaqi’ah (56) every night will not be stricken with poverty.”

الجواب: الشيخ: هذا أيضاً ضعيف . ـ

Sheikh: This is also weak.

السؤال: وأخيراً تقول: قال الرسول صلى الله عليه وسلم: «من قرأ قل هو الله أحد ألف مرة فقد اشترى نفسه من الله تعالى»؟

Moderator: And the final one: Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “Whoever recites surah al-Ikhlaas (112) one thousand times during the course of a night, then he has purchased himself from Allah.”

الشيخ : وهذا أيضاً ضعيف . ـ

Sheikh: This is also weak.

السؤال: طيب في سؤالها الثاني تقول بأن تذكر يا شيخ محمد . ـ

Moderator: OK. In her second question she says that you, sheikh Muhammad, once mentioned —

الشيخ: و يجب التنبيه . ـ
السؤال: طيب . ـ

Sheikh: — But this first question requires an additional note.

Moderator: OK

الشيخ: هذا أن كثيرا من الأحاديث التي وردت في فضائل بعض السور أو بعض الآيات ضعيفة، وقد تصل إلى حد الوضع، كذلك يجب التنبه لهذا، وأن يعرض الإنسان هذه الأحاديث على أهل العلم بالحديث، حتى يتبين الصحيح من الضعيف. نعم. ـ

Sheikh: That note is that many of the ahaadeeth found regarding the virtues of such-and-such surah or such-and-such verses are weak or they might even reach the level of fabricated. So, this is something that needs attention, and a person should bring these ahaadeeth to the experts on Hadeeth so that the authentic ones can be distinguished from the inauthentic ones.
