It is stated in Sunan Abee Dawood that the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said, “Allah will grant whoever recites this seven times in the morning and evening whatever he desires from this world or the next.”
Is this hadith authentic?
Abu Dawud narrates it in his Sunan (Book of Adab toward the end) as a saying of Abu al-Darda’ with a chain of trustworthy narrators, which makes it authentic as a Companion-report. Furthermore, Ibn Hajar and al-Mundhiri in Mukhtasar al-Targhib wal-Tarhib (p. 172 §526) said it has the status of a Prophetic hadith.
The correct wording is: “Whoever says when he reaches morning and when he reaches evening Hasbiya Allahu la ilaha illa Hu, `alayhi tawakkaltu wa-Huwa Rabbu al-`arsh al-`azhim seven times, Allah shall suffice him of whatever concerns him whether he is truthful or lying.”
