Q884: Query regarding 5 Salah Hadith

Question:

Assalamu alaikum sheikh, Hope you are well.

My question is in relation to a hadith that I heard in a muzakera. I was wondering if you had come across it.

The hadith goes like this (to the nearest meaning):

“If one prays his fajr namaz, he gets the reward equal to the amount of crying Adam (Alayhis Salam) did.

If one prays his zohar namaz then he gets the reward equal to the amount of sacrifice Ibrahim (Alayhis Salam) gave.

If one prays his asr namaz, he gets the reward equal to the spiritual elevation that uzair (Alayhis Salam) recieved when he woke up from his 100 year sleep.

If one prays his maghrib namaz then he gets the reward equal to the sabr that Ayyub (Alayhis Salam) had throughout his illness.

No other ummat besides the ummat of Nabi (SAW) was given isha salat so it is said that one who prays his isha salat, he will go with Nabi (SAW) into jannah.”

I asked the person that I heard the hadith from and he vaguely told me that this hadith was in a book called mowabbih or something along those lines but he was very unclear and I didn’t want to ask him again.

As Allah has bestowed you with a vast knowledge of hadith please can you clarify the contents of this hadith, whether it is sahih or not and which kitaab it can be found in.

Jazaak Allahu khayran

Walaikumussalam w w

Alhamdulillah I am fine.

The above is not in any marfu’ hadith (i.e. it is not the saying of Rasulullah صلي الله عليه وسلم)

Imam Tahawi رحمه الله has narrated something similar from Ubaidullah Ibn Muhammad Ibn Aisha (who acquired knowledge from many Tabi’een).

He says: “Indeed when Adam’s عليه السلام repentance was accepted at Fajr time he performed two raka’ts. So Fajr salaah began from there. Is’haq’s عليه السلام ransom (a ram) was sent down at noon so he prayed four raka’ts, so Zohar started. Uziar عليه السلام was woken up from his sleep (of 100 years) at Asr time. He was asked “How long have you slept?” He replied “A day”. Then he looked at the sun and said “A portion of a day” then he prayed four raka’ts so Asr began. Dawood’s عليه السلام mistake was forgiven at Maghrib so he started praying four raka’ts. However, he was exhausted, so he sat at the third raka’t and completed his Salah, so Maghrib started. And the first person to pray Isha was our Nabi صلي الله عليه وسلم “.
