Are these hadiths authentic?
Ali (radiyallahu’anhu) said:
“About a man who did not read the last three ayats of Surah Baqarah at night, I can not say that he is intelligent”
‘Umar (radiyallahu’anhu) said: “An intelligent man does not go to sleep without reading ayats last part of Surah Baqarah.”
This statement has been recorded from Sayyiduna ‘Umar & Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu’anhuma).
Most sources have it from the latter (Sayyiduna ‘Ali) with an authentic chain, and is better quoted as such.
