Is the one who recites the last ten verses of Aal -Imraan at night like one who spent the night in prayer (qiyaam)?

One of my friend gave a book,in which I have fond that anyone who recite last ten ayas of sura alaimran then he will get as same as reward the a person who did ibada whole night. Is there any authentic hadeeth to support this. Please let me know at your earliest convenience.

Praise be to Allaah.

Firstly:

We do not know of any saheeh hadeeth from the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) which would indicate that the one who recites the last ten verses of Soorat Aal ‘Imraan will have recorded for him the reward of spending the night in worship. Rather that was narrated from ‘Uthmaan ibn ‘Affaan (may Allah be pleased with him). Al-Daarimi (3396) narrated from him (may Allah be pleased with him) that he said: Whoever recites the end of Aal ‘Imraan at night, it will be recorded for him as spending a night in prayer (qiyaam.) But its isnaad is da‘eef, and it includes Ibn Luhay‘ah, as mentioned by al-Qurtubi in his book al-Tadhkaar (p. 235) and al-Arna’oot said in his commentary: Its isnaad is da‘eef.

Rather the virtue of these verses was mentioned in a report narrated by al-Bukhaari (183) and Muslim (763) from Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allah be pleased with him), that that he stayed one night with Maymoonah, the Mother of the Believers, who was his maternal aunt. He said: The Messenger of Allaah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) slept until halfway through the night, or just before or after that. The Messenger of Allaah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) woke up and started wiping the sleep from his face with his hand. Then he recited the last ten verses of Soorat Aal ‘Imraan, then he got up and went to a waterskin that was hanging there, and did wudoo’ from it and did it well, then he stood and prayed.

Al-Nawawi (may Allah have mercy on him) said: This indicates that it is mustahabb to recite these verses when getting up from sleep. End quote.

With regard to what was narrated by al-Tabaraani in al-Awsat (6777), Ibn al-Sunni in ‘Aml al-Yawm wa’l-Laylah (687), al-‘Aqeeli in al-Du‘afa’ (713), Ibn ‘Adiy in al-Kaamil (6/449), al-Khateeb in al-Muttafaq wa’l-Muftaraq (617) and Ibn ‘Asaakir in Tareekh Dimashq (22/393), via Mazaahir ibn Aslam who said: Sa‘eed ibn Abi Sa‘eed al-Maqbari told me, from Abu Hurayrah, that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) used to recite the first ten verses of Soorat Aal ‘Imraan every night — its isnaad is da‘eef jiddan (very weak). Mazaahir ibn Aslam is matrook al-hadeeth (his hadeeth is to be rejected). Yahya ibn Ma‘een said: He is nothing. Al-Bukhaari and Abu Haatim said: He is munkar al-hadeeth.

Al-Jarh wa’l-Ta‘deel, 8/439; al-Du‘afa’ by al-‘Aqeeli, 2/141

Secondly:

The virtue mentioned in the question applies to the one who recites one hundred verses during the night. Imam Ahmad (16510) narrated that Tameem al-Daari (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever recites one hundred verses in one night will have recorded for him (as if he) spent the night in worship.”

Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in al-Saheehah (644)

It may be understood that what is meant by this hadeeth is reciting one hundred verses in prayer at night (qiyaam), or it may be understood as meaning reciting them in general, whether in prayer or otherwise.

This has been discussed in the answer to question no. 92591.

And Allah knows best.
