Reference and authenticity of the famous du’a after Salah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

Can you confirm if the du’a which I recite after Fard salah is authentic? Kindly Confirm the source as well.

“Allahumma ‘ainni ‘ala dhikrika wa shukrika wa husni ‘ibadatika”

 

Answer

The full Hadith is as follows:

Sayyiduna Mu’adh ibn Jabal (radiyallahu ‘anhu) says that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) once took hold of his hand and said, ‘O Mu’adh! I Love you’. He then said ‘I advise you O Mu’adh, Never leave out saying the following after every Salah,

Allahumma ‘ainni ‘ala dhikrika wa shukrika wa husni ‘ibadatika

 

Translation: O Allah, assist me in remembering you, is showing you gratitude and in worshiping you well

(Sunan Abi Dawud, Hadith: 1522)

 

Imam Ibn Hibban, Imam Hakim and Hafiz Dhahabi (rahimahumullah) have declared the Hadith as authentic.

(Sahih Ibn Hibban;Al Ihsan, Hadith: 2020 and Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 1 pg. 273)
