can you please answer this asap…
I was just reading upon Laylatul Qadr, and I came across the following information, which was given in a talk by Shaykh Asif Hussain Farooqui (without any disrespect to the shaykh, could you also inform me whether youve heard of him or not) :
It is stated in a hadith that if a person prays two rakah of nafil Salaah and in the first rakah he recites Surah Fatiha and then surah Ikhlaas seven times, and does the same in the second rakah. Once the Salaah is finished the person recites Astagfirullah 70 times. Then it is stated in the hadith that as soon as the person finishes, Allah (swt) forgives both his/her parents.
There were no references to the hadith, so I wanted to know whether there are any evidences and if it is correct to pray salaah in the method mentioned above?
