Is this hadith authentic? The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, ‘Whoever recites 4 verses from the first part of Surah al Baqarah, the verse of the Throne, two verses after the verse of the Throne and three verses from the last part of Surah al Baqarah, Satan would never come near him or the members of his family on that day, and nothing he despises would come near him or the members of his family, and never are these verses recited over a madman without him regaining his consciousness’ [Darimi 3249/A in the Book of Excellence of the Quran; an-Nasai in the Deeds during the Day and Night]; Ibn Hibban & Tabrani]
