3. Recite (Surah) Ya-Sin over your dead.

4. I wish that it (Surah Ya-Sin) is instilled in the heart of every person in my Ummah (Muslim nation). What is the degree of authenticity of these Hadith?

A: 1. The first Hadith is reported by Al-Tirmidhy, Al-Darimy and Al-Bayhaqy. It is ranked as Da`if (weak) by Al-Tirmidhy who said: This is Hadith Gharib (a Hadith with a single narrator usually at the beginning of the chain of narration).

2. The second Hadith is very Da`if, reported by Abu Ya`la, Al-Darimy and Al-Bayhaqy in Shu`ab Al-Iman.
