Question

Can you please tell me if this hadith is found in any of the hadith books. Rasulullah (saw) 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.

Please find out this 4 me and give me the exact wordings of it with reference, its urgent. Jazaakallah.

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

 

We were unable to locate any such hadīth.

You can perfectly recite these adhkar, 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)

And Allah knows best
