Assalaamualaikum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuh. Is there an authentic hadith that states that one should recite Suratul Faatihah, Ayatul Kursi, Shahidallaah and Allaahumma Maalikal Mulk after every Fard Salaah? Thank you. Jazakallaahu khayran.


All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

We have not come across what you mentioned except what is reported regarding Aayatul-Kursi [Quran 2:255]. Ibn Hibbaan  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him reported that the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) said: “Whoever recites Ayatul-Kursi after each obligatory prayer, then nothing can prevent him from entering Paradise except death.

The Hadeeth was classified by Shaykh Al-Albaani  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him as Saheeh (sound).

For more benefit on the legislated Athkaar (mention of Allaah) after the obligatory prayer, please refer to Fatwa 81736.

Allaah Knows best.
