Reciting Surah Ikhlas to cross the Sirat (bridge) easily

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Is this Hadith authentic?

“If someone recites Surah Ikhlas fifteen (15) times daily, then he will cross the Sirat (pul sirat) bridge with the speed of lightening”?



I have not come across this Hadith.

The Muhaddithun have declared a different, longer version a fabrication.
