Offer Salah as if it is your farewell Salah

Is this Hadith reliable?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“When you read Salah read it like it is a farewell Salah”


This is a part of a longer Hadith recorded by Imam Ibn Majah and Imam Ahmad (rahimahumallah). ‘Allamah Munawi and ‘Allamah ‘Azizi (rahimahumallah) have declared the Hadith sound (hasan).

(Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 4171, Musnad Ahmad, vol. 5 pg. 412. Refer: At Taysir, vol. 1 pg. 122 and As Sirajul Munir, vol. 1 pg. 168/169)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
