Reciting Surah Qadr thrice on Friday

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

I want to know how authentic is the following statement?

“Whoever recites Surah Qadr three times on Friday [before Jumu’ah] and three times after Jumu’ah, will receive as many good deeds for him as the number of people offering Jumu’ah Salah that day throughout the world.”

 

Answer

This narration appears in a Hadith Juz'(collection) of Abu Mansur Muhammad ibn ‘Isa ibn ‘Abdil ‘Aziz As Sabbah as the statement of Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu). However, ‘Allamah ibn ‘Arraq (rahimahullah) has pointed out a liar in the chain. The Hadith is therefore not suitable to quote.

(Dhaylul La-Alil Masnu’ah, vol. 1 pg. 138, Hadith: 154, Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 1 pg. 306)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
