Reward for Revival of a Sunnah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Mahmoodiyah


Dear scholar,


I Read in Heavenly Ornaments that ‘ Rasoolullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam said. ‘The person who revives my Sunnah at a time when there is a religious degeneration in my Ummah will receive the reward of 100 martyrs.’ Could you please tell me from which Hadeeth it was taken?






The Hadith you refer to in your question is an authentic Hadith and is found in At-Targheeb wat Tarheeb and Mishkaat.
