A da’eef hadeeth concerning the virtue of reciting the last verses of Soorat al-Hashr


I want to make sure whether the following hadeeth is sound: It was narrated from Ma’qil ibn Yasaar (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever says three times each morning, ‘A’oodhu Billaah il-samee’ il-‘aleem min al-shaytaan il-rajeem (I seek refuge with Allaah the All-Hearing, All-Knowing, from the accursed Shaytaan), and recites the last three verses of Soorat al-Hashr, Allaah will send seventy thousand angels to send blessings upon him until evening comes, and if he dies on that day he will die a martyr. And whoever says that in the evening, will be given a similar status.

Praise be to Allaah.


This hadeeth was narrated by al-Tirmidhi in: Book of the
virtues of the Qur’aan, Chapter: One who recites a letter of the Qur’aan,
what reward he will have. No. 2922. Also narrated by Imam Ahmad in his
Musnad, no. 19795 

Its isnaad includes
Khaalid ibn Tahmaan of whom Ibn Hajar said: He is sadooq but was accused of
being a Shi’i then he became confused. 

Taqreeb al-Tahdheeb, 1644. 

It was classed as da’eef (weak) by al-Albaani (may Allaah
have mercy on him). See Da’eef Abi Dawood, 2922. 

There are many dhikrs
for morning and evening that are narrated in saheeh report from the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). See some of them in
question no. 12173. 

And Allaah knows best.
