عَنْ أبي هريرة، قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمْ، يَقُولُ:”تَكْفِيرُ كُلِّ لِحَاءٍ رَكْعَتَانِ”
Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Performing two raka’h is an expiation for any quarrel.”
Collected by Ibn Al-Arabee in his Mu’jam
(2 /178) Ar-Razi (1/141) in Al-Fawa’id.
Shaykh Al-Albani (may Allah have mercy on him) graded this hadeeth as being Hasan. This is based on the Isnad that leads to Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him). The Narration collected by At-Tabarani (may Allah have mercy upon him) in his Kubara which leads up to Abu Bahelee (may Allah be pleased with him) has a weakness in it as stated by Al-Haythamee (may Allah have mercy on him) [ Silsilah Saheehah #1789]
Al-Alamah Muhammad Abdur Ra’uf Al-Manawee (may Allah have mercy on him) commented on this hadeeth saying, “First a person should perform wudu which diminishes the anger. Then he should pray the two rak’ah.[ Faydul Qadir hadeeth # 3355]
