Is the Night Prayer Authentic?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: May I know if the following hadith is authentic?

Salman Al-Farsi quoted the Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) as saying: “Observe the night prayer; it was the practice of the righteous before you and it brings you closer to your Rabb and it is penance for evil deeds and erases the sins and repels disease from the body.” [At-Tabarani]


A: These wordings are recorded Al Mu`jamul Kabeer lit Tabraani.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
