Salaam Somebody told me that if u read namaaz 5 times a day for at least 40 days straight at the mosque without missing a single takbeer, u would get like a "certificate" saying that u will never die as a non-believer & that the hell fire will never touch u. Is that true & is that why they do 40 days Jamat. Jazakallah

The above-mentioned is a Hadith. The two certificates are freedom from hypocrisy and freedom from hell-fire.

This is not the purpose behind the 40 days Jamaat.

It must be understood that although these promises are given in the Hadith, it doesn't allow one to be content of them for the rest of his life. Deen must be practised in all circumstances and ages. Relying on this one action is not sufficient, rather making a mockery of the Deen.

And Allah knows best.
