In At-Tirmidhi (3474, 3534), Al-Bazzar (4050), An-Nasa’i in A'mal al-Yawm wal Laylah (127), At-Tabarani in Ad-Du'a (706), and others; it is related to recite ten/one-hundred times after Fajr and Maghrib:

La ilaha illallah, wahdahu la sharika lah, la hul mulk, wa la hul hamd, (bi-yadihil khayr), yuhyi wa yumit, wa huwa ala kulli shay-in qadir - "while [your] feet are still folded, [...]".

Is this part of the narration about reciting the dhikr "while your feet should be still folded" weak and what is the issue with it?

There have been discussions about this part concerning its authenticity if this only counts for the people praying behind the Imam, or that even the Imam should delay his sitting for this dhikr after Fajr/Maghrib before he would turn around to the people.

I have received this from Islamqa regarding this issue, but I can not understand Arabic, and it was mentioned that Imam Daraqutni (in “Al-Illal” (6/46, 248-249)) and others have commented this dhikr.

  • I'm unclear what you are expecting the linked fatwa doesn't include any of both hadith versions from Jami' at-Tirmidhi it only indicates some narration.

  • The reply from Islamqa: "Please see the answer to question #175771. We have previously mentioned the weakness of the hadith stating the dhikr specifically at Fajr and Maghrib." So there is an issue stated about this in the article and I would like to understand what it is in relaton with the context of my question.

    Please stick to one question per post: You want an explanation about the sitting issue and a qualification of the hadith versions both are big tasks and can hardly be covered in one post.

  • The Dhikr is literally mentioned twice in the linked website, if you press ctrl + f and incluide "يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ" - then you will notice it really fast. Therefore, I do not understand how you say it would not be mentioned at all. Additionally, Imam Daraqutni is also mentioned in this article and Islamaqa refered to this Dhikr by sending me this link, which I can not understand since it is Arabic.
