Part of the adhkaar for morning and evening is to say “Hasbi Allaah laa illaha illa huwa (sufficient for me is Allah, there is no god besides Him…)”

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
The Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever says in the morning and in the evening Hasbi Allaah laa illaha illa huwa ‘alayhi tawwakaltu wa huwa rabb al-‘arsh il-‘azeem (Sufficient for me is Allaah, there is no god besides Him; in Him have I put my trust and He is the Lord of the mighty Throne), seven times, Allah, may He be exalted, will suffice him for what concerns him of the affairs of this world and the Hereafter.” Is this hadeeth saheeh or not?.

Answer:
Praise be to Allaah.

This hadeeth was narrated in a mawqoof report  from Abu’d-Darda’ (may Allah be pleased with him) by Abu Dawood in his Sunan with a jayyid isnaad, as follows: “Whoever says in the morning and in the evening Hasbi Allaah laa illaha illa huwa ‘alayhi tawwakaltu wa huwa rabb al-‘arsh il-‘azeem (Sufficient for me is Allaah, there is no god besides Him; in Him have I put my trust and He is the Lord of the mighty Throne), seven times, Allah, may He be exalted, will suffice him for what concerns him,” and it does not contain the additional phrase mentioned (“of the affairs of this world and the Hereafter”). This is a mawqoof hadeeth, the isnaad of which ends with Abu’d-Darda’ and does not go back to the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him), but it comes under the heading of a marfoo‘ hadeeth, because such words could not be said on the basis of individual opinion. And Allah is the source of strength. End quote. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
