The Hadith: 'Allah will forbid anyone who regularly performs four Rak`ahs before Zuhr and four after it from entering the Fire'
Is there an authentic Hadith that means:
Anyone who offers Zhuhr (Noon) Prayer then follows it with four (optional) Rak`ahs (units of Prayer) Allah will forbid the Fire to burn his face.
Imam Ahmad, the Compilers of the Sunan and
Al-Hakim reported from
Um Habibah (may Allah be pleased with her) that she heard the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) saying:
Allah will forbid anyone who regularly performs four Rak`ahs before Zuhr and four after it from entering the Fire.
Al-Tirmidhy said: "It is Hasan Sahih (a Hadith that stands at a higher level than a mere Hasan Hadith, but at a bit lower level than Sahih)."May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
