Answer

Muhtaram / Muhtaramah

 

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.

The exact words of the narration mentioned in the query could not be located.

 

The following hadith has been mentioned in Zail-ul-La’aali, but the author says that it is fabricated:

 

” من سمع المنادي بالصلاة فقال مرحبا بالقائلين عدلا مرحبا بالصلاة وأهلا كتب الله له ألفي ألف حسنة ومحي عنه ألفي ألف سيئة ورفع له ألفي ألف درجة ” موضوع.

Whosoever says marhaban bil qaileena ‘adlan marhaban bis salaati wa ahlan when he hears the muazzin, 20000 virtues will be written for him, 20000 of his sins will be forgiven and 20000 of his stages will be elevated.

Zail-ul-La’aali Pg.103 Al Maktabah Al Athariyyah

 

 

Although the virtue mentioned above could not be located in any authentic hadith, the dua itself has been mentioned in many narrations:

 

حدثنا عبدة بن سليمان عن سعيد عن قتادة أن عثمان كان إذا سمع المؤذن قال ” قد قامت الصلاة ” ، قال : مرحبا بالقائلين عدلا وبالصلاة مرحبا وأهلا ، ثم ينهض إلى الصلاة.

It has been narrated on the athourity of Qataadah (Rahimahullah) that whenever Uthman (Radhiyallahu Anhu) heard the muazzin saying “qad qaamatis salaah”, he used to say, “marhaban bil qaileena ‘adlan marhaban bis salaati wa ahlan”, then he used to stand up for salaah.

Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaibah Vol.7 Pg.125 (Al Maktabah Al Shamilah)

 

حدثنا أبو يزيد القراطيسي ، حدثنا أسد بن موسى ، حدثنا أبو هلال الراسبي ، عن قتادة ، أن عثمان بن عفان رضي الله عنه ، كان إذا جاءه من يؤذنه بالصلاة ، قال : مرحبا بالقائلين عدلا ، وبالصلاة مرحبا وأهلا .

It has been narrated on the athourity of Qataadah (Rahimahullah) that whenever the muazzin came to call for salah, Uthman (Radhiyallahu Anhu) used to say, “marhaban bil qaileena ‘adlan marhaban bis salaati wa ahlan”.

Mu’jam Al Kabir Li Al Tabrani Vol.1 Pg.55 (Al Maktabah Al Shamilah)

 

There is a bit of ambiguity in the chain of narrators of the abovementioned two narrations. However, these narrations are acceptable, as they are being used to prove the virtues of good deeds.

 

 

And Allah knows best
