بسم الله والحمد لله

Whoever sends blessings upon [the Prophet ﷺ] 10 times in the morning and 10 times in the evening, will have [his] intercession on the Day of Resurrection.

Ibn Abi Asim in his Kitab As-Salah (61) Initially, Shaykh Albani graded this Hadith Hasan in Sahih al-Jam'i (6357), but ultimately recanted in his Ad-Da'ifah (12/633-5 - #5788) by grading its Isnad Da'if.

If you wake up in the morning, reach the evening or retire to bed, to say: Allahumma fatiras-samawati wal ard, a'limal ghaybi wash-shahadah, Anta Rabbu kulli shay-in wa malikuh - Ashhadu an la ilaha illa ant, wahdaka la sharika lak, wa anna Muhammadan a'bduka wa rasuluk - A'udhu bika min sharri nafsi, wa sharrish-shaytani wa shirkih, wa an a-qtarifa a'la nafsi su-an au a-jur-rahu ila muslim

Musnad Ahmad (81) Da'if since its Isnad is interrupted due to Mujahid (Ibn Jabr) who did not meet Abu Bakr and Layth (Ibn Abi Sulaym) is weak; therefore, it can not be raised to Hasan li Ghayrihi.

3x in the morning and evening: (Allahumma a'fini fi badani, Allahumma a'fani fi sam'i, Allahumma a'fini fi basari - La ilaha illa ant; Allahumma inni a'udhu bika minal kufr, wal faqr, Allahumma inni a'udhu bika min a'dhabil qabr - La ilaha illa ant)

Abu Dawud (5090) Shaykh Albani said in Tamam al-Manat (p. 232): 'The Isnad is Hasan or close to Hasan' since there is a dispute about the narrator Jafar ibn Maymun. Shaykh Hilali said in his Tahqiq of Ibn as-Sunni (1/118): 'Ahmad, Al-Bukhari, Ibn Ma'in [...] considered him to be weak; the Isnad is Da'if, and as for those of the scholars who have made it good; because this type of narrators are conflicting between being reliable or weak.'

To say after Salat al-Ghadah [once]: (La ilaha illallah, wahdahu la sharika lah, la hul mulk, wa la hul-hamd, wa huwa a'la kulli shay-in qadir) it will be equivalent of freeing four slaves from the children of Ismai'l.

A'mal al-Yawm wal-Laylah (112) Everyone in this chain is trustworthy, except (Muhammad bin A'bdul Rahman) bin Abi Layla - Ibn Hajar said in At-Taqrib (6081): '[He is] truthful, [but] very weak in memorization.'

To say after Salat al-Fajr: Ya Allah, I ask You for a good sustenance, beneficial knowledge, and acceptable deeds (Allahumma inni asaluka rizqan tayyiba, wa i'lman nafi'a, wa a'malan mutaqab-bala)

Mu'jam as-Saghir (735) Shaykh Albani graded its Isnad Jayyid in Tamam al-Manat (p. 233) since there are no great issues with each narrator in the chain. Notwithstanding, he did that likely with forbearance since Shaykh Hilali explained the issue in his Tahqiq of Ibn as-Sunni (1/102-3 / 1/228): '[This Hadith] is disconnected because Sha'bi did not hear from Umm Salamah [... and the other ones are] weak due to the participation of unknown and unreliable narrators, and [this] follow-up of Sha'bi does not strengthen it [overall].'

Therefore, this Du'a after Fajr can not be attributed to the Prophet ﷺ because of the interruption in the Isnad.

If anyone says in the morning or in the evening: O Allah, in the morning we call Thee, the bearers of Thy Throne, [...]

Abu Dawud (5069) Ibn Hajar classed it Hasan Gharib in Nata'ij al-Afkar (2/375), but Shaykh Albani objected in Ad-Da'ifah (3/141-5 - #1041) since A'bd al-Rahman ibn A'bd al-Majid is unknown and there is a difference of opinion if Makhul heard from Anas, which Al-Bukhari negated. All of the other routes are also weak that prevent it to be raised.

Nevertheless, we have a general Hadith which is narrated in Al-Mustadrak (1/704), and Al-Hakim classed it Sahih to which Imam Dhahabi agreed upon, and Shaykh Albani concurred in As-Sahihah (1/534 - #267), that the Prophet (ﷺ) said:

"Who says: Oh Allah, I bear witness to you and your angels and bearers of your throne, and I bear witness who is in the heavens and on the Earth, that you are Allah, there is no deity but you alone, without partner, and I bear witness that Muhammad is your servant and your messenger (Allahumma inni ush-hiduka wa ush-hidu mala-i-kataka wa hamalata a'rshik, wa ush-hidu man fis-samawati wa man fil ard, Annaka Antal-lah, La ilaha illa ant, wahdaka la sharika lak, wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan a'bduka wa Rasuluk) - whoever says it once, Allah will ransom one-third of him from the Fire; whoever says it twice, Allah will ransom two-thirds of him from the Fire; whoever says it three times, Allah will ransom him entirely from the Fire."

When you finish the Maghrib prayer, say: O Allah, protect me from Hell (Allahumma a-jirni minan-nar) seven times [...]

Abu Dawud (5079) Ibn Hajar classed it Hasan in Nata'ij al-Afkar (2/326), however Shaykh Albani objected in Ad-Da'ifah (4/127-9 - #1624) because of a misunderstanding that occured here with the names of Muslim ibn al-Harith (Sahabi), the father of Al-Harith ibn Muslim; his son's status is unknown.

Nevertheless, there are two other Ahadith which should be rather followed in general:

At-Tirmidhi (2572), which Shaykh Albani classed Sahih in Talaq al-Raghib (4/222), that the Prophet ﷺ said:

"Whoever asks Allah for Paradise 3 times, the Paradise says: 'O Allah, admit him into Paradise', and whoever seeks refuge from the Fire three times, the Fire says: 'O Allah, save him from the Fire.'"

Lastly, in Musnad Abu Ya'la (6192), classed Sahih in As-Sahihah (6/22-5 - #2506), that the Prophet ﷺ said:

"No slave seeks protection from the Fire seven times in a day except that the Fire says: 'O my Lord, indeed your slave sought protection in You from me, so protect him.' And no slave asks Allah for Paradise seven times in a day except that Paradise says: 'O my Lord, indeed your slave asked for me, so enter him into Paradise.'"

Whoever says (La ilaha illallah, wahdahu la sharika lah, la hul mulk, wa la hul-hamd, wa huwa a'la kulli shay-in qadir) ten times after praying Maghrib [...]

Ibn Hibban (2023) This Hadith is Sahih li Ghayrihi - other than mentioning Tahlil after Salat al-Maghrib - since everyone in this chain is trustworthy except A'bdullah ibn Ya'ish who is unknown as Al-Husayni stated in Al-Ikmal (p. 253) and Ibn Hajar in Ta'jil al-Manfa'h (602) rendering the Isnad Da'if.

  • @Medi1Saif I hope it is not a great inconvenience since some of these issues are really subtle. And due to deeper investigations, it requires multiple revisions until the matter is finally resolved to preserve authenticity and precision!

  • It's not much of an issue, but I just wanted to let you know. A real problem is when a question post is re-edited several times till it is no longer related to the original question. The worst case is if it was edited after an answer was provided so that the answer or question will be misleading. I don't know how other mods may handle this in the future.

  • @Medi1Saif I am very rarely editing my question-posts without changing its context. I mostly revise rather the answer-posts (and the threads are also created by myself to provide information). But good to know what you are telling me.
