Advices to Sayyiduna ‘Ali (RA): “Read/Do 5 things before sleeping”


Here is the entire sequence of the report copy-pasted :

Rasulullah (pbuh) said to hazrat Ali (ra): oh ali: 1) give 4000 dinar in sadaqa daily, 2) read a whole quran daily, 3) pay the price of jannat daily, 4) make peace between 2 fighting persons daily, 5) perform hajj daily. H.Ali (ra) said, oh rasulullah, thats hard for me. Rasulullah (saw) told him 1) recite sura fatiha 4 times before sleeping, thats like you have given 4000 dinaar in sadqa daily. 2) recite sura ikhlaas 3 times before sleeping, thats like you have read the whole quran, 3) recite durood ibraaheem 10 times before sleeping, thats like you have paid for the price of jannat. 4) make istighfaar 10 times before sleeping,, thats like you have made peace between 2 fighting persons. 5) read 4th kalima 4 times before sleeping,thats like you have performed hajj.

This hadeeth which says that the Prophet gave this advice to ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (RA) is a lie that was fabricated against the Prophet  so it is not correct to attribute it to the him .

It has no source, so you cannot say it’s a hadith. Quoting it is not permissible.

You can perfectly recite these adhkar, nobody is saying it’s haram, however do not hold that it is from the Prophet ﷺ.

What is authentically proven to recite before sleeping is :
-Surah Al-Mulk
-Ayat Al-Kursi
-Last 2 verses from Surah Al-Baqarah (Aamanarrasoolu…)
-Surah Ikhlas, Al-Falaq and An-Naas

(And best is to recite all of this)

Source 1

Source 2

Source 3

Source 4

Source 5

Source 6

Source 7

So in conclusion, do NOT attribute this narration to the Prophet nor believe the content of this narration with regards to the rewards, but reading this is fine.
