Fabricated hadith on 360 rewards

  • Status : FABRICATED

Here is a random version of the report copy-pasted :

It was reported from the Messenger of Allah that he said about this Hadith: “Anyone recites this supplication at anytime is like performing 360 Hajj journeys, reciting the Qur’an 360 times, freeing 360 servants, giving 360 dinars in charity, and relieved 360 distressed person.” As soon the Prophet (peace be upon him) said that Hadith, Gabriel (peace be upon him) descended and said: Anyone of Allah’s Servants (male or female) recites this supplication once in a lifetime, by my highness and glory, I guarantee seven things for him: 1- Move away poverty from him/her. 2- Secure him/her from the interrogation of Munkar and Nakir. 3- Make him/her pass the Sirat. 4- Secure him/her against sudden death. 5- Prohibit Hell fire to harm him/her. 6- Secure him/her from the press of the grave. 7- Secure him/her against the wrath of an unjust ruler.

The text of the Hadith reads as follows : “La Ilaha Illa Allah, Al Jalil Al Jabbar. La Ilaha Illa Allah, Al Wahid Al Qahhar. La Ilaha Illa Allah, Al `Aziz Al Ghaffar. La Ilaha Illa Allah, Al Karim As-Sattar. La Ilaha Illa Allah, Al Kabir Al Muta’al. La Ilaha Illa Allah Wahdahu La Sharika Lahu, Ilahan Wahidan Rabban, wa Shahidan Samadan, wa nahnu Lahu Muslimun. La Ilaha Illa Allah Wahdahu La Sharika Lahu Ilahan wahidan, Rabban wa Shahidan, wa nahnu lahu `Abidun. La Ilaha Illa Allah Wahdahu La Sharika Lahu, Ilahan Wahidan Rabban wa Shahidan, wa nahnu Lahu Qanitun. La Ilaha Illa Allah Wahdahu La Sharika Lahu Ilahan Wahidan Rabban wa Shahidan, wa nahnu lahu Sabirun. La Ilaha Illa Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah. `Ali Waliullah. Allahumma Ilika Wajjahtu Wajhiya, wa Ilayka Fawadtu Amry, wa `Alayka Tawakaltu ya Arhama Ar-Rahimin.”

After a close examination of the papers in question, it has become clear that it is false and fabricated and it was not reported by the scholars of Hadith by these wordings and the proofs of its fabrication are obvious for the following :

  1. This invocation is contradictory to the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him) because it contains these numbers of rewards to the person who recites this invocation.
  2. It contains “`Ali Waliullah”. There is no doubt that `Ali ibn Abu Talib (may Allah be pleased with him) is one of Allah’s Guardians, but singling him out with that description denotes the touch of Shia.
  3. This Hadiths indicates that its reciter enters paradise even if he/she commits major sins or committed one of the nullifiers of faith which is void and not accepted either intellectually or by Shari`ah.

Thus it contains many statements that contradict the Shari`ah of Islam. It is contradictory to the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him). Accordingly, it is obligatory to prevent the distribution of these and other similar papers which are meant to change and alter the monotheistic faith of Islam and follow misguidance, Bid`ahs and superstitions.

Surah Al-Insan (Ad-Dahr) not revealed because of ‘Ali’s family (RA)

  • Status: FABRICATED

Here is the entire sequence of the report copy-pasted (random version) :

These verses were revealed after Ali, Fatima, Hassan, and Hussain (A.S.) gave charity to needy people; Zamakhshari states this story in the book Al-Kashaf; it goes as follows: Ibn Abbas said: Once Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain were ill, the Messenger of Allah and a group went to visit them, the visitors suggested to Imam Ali to make a vow to Allah: if He were to relieve them, he would perform some good action. Therefore, Imam Ali together with Fatima and their servant Fedhdhah vowed to Allah that they would fast for three days if He would relieve Hassan and Hussain (A.S.). When Allah had relieved them, Imam Ali (A.S.) borrowed three (3) aswu (a cubic measure) of barley from a Jew known as Shimon. Fatima ground one (1) as’s (singular of aswu) of the barley and baked five loaves of bread for her family’s meal at sunset. As sunset approached, a needy man knocked on the door and said: ‘Assalamu Alaikum, Family of Muhammad. I am a needy man from among the Muslims; feed me, May Allah feed you from the food of Paradise.’ The holy family preferred the needy man over themselves and spent the night with nothing in their stomachs except water. They fasted the second day, and again at sunset, when they were waiting for their food, an orphan asked them for help and they again preferred him over themselves. The third evening a captive (prisoner of war) asked them for help and they repeated their preference for the needy above themselves. The following morning, Imam Ali (A.S.) took Al-Hassan and Al-Hussain to the Messenger of Allah (S.A.W.) who said the following when he saw them shaking like little chicks from hunger: ‘It displeases us to see you in this condition.’ Then he went with them, for he wanted in see Fatima. When they arrived, Fatima (A.S.) was in the Mehrab (prayer place), and her condition was such that it further displeased the Prophet (S.A.W.). At this time, Gabriel descended and said: ‘Take this chapter Muhammad; Allah surely congratulates you for having this family.’ It is worthy to state that the Good ones mentioned here are Ali, Fatima, Hassan and Hussain; who deserve Paradise because of their act of feeding the needy, the orphan, and the captive. Another, point to keep in mind here, is that despite the detailed description of Paradise given in the verses, Allah, the Exalted, does not mentioned the huris. This understood to be in honor and exaltation of Fatima (S.A.), the wife of Imam Ali, and the mother of Hassan and Hussain (A.S.).

The story in question is classified as fabricated and is documented in many books of ‘Maudu’āt’ (compilations of fabricated ahādīth).

Hereunder are the references :

  • Tadhkiratul Maudu’āt
  • Tanzeehush Sharī’ah (vol. 1, pg. 362)
  • Al La’ālil Masnū’ah (vol. 1, pg, 338)
  • Al Fawā’id Al-Majmū’ah (pg. 376,)
  • Mausū’ātul Ahādīth wal āthār al-da’īfah wal maudu’ah (vol. 9, pg. 93-99)
  • Kitābul Maudu’āt (vol. 1, pg. 390)
  • Lisānul Mizān (vol. 6, pg. 369)
  • Tafsīr Al-Qurtubi (Surāh Al-Insān)

The high ranks of the Ahlul Bayt is not contested, but consider they would not have liked that we lie upon them. More over we can even sense the shi’i extremism in this story so we should be careful from whom we take our religion, right?

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)

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.
