"O Allah I call You to witness and I call the bearers of Your Throne Your angels and all Your creatures to witness that You are Allah and there is no god except You and that Muhammad is Your slave and messenger"
The Arabic may not be 100%.
But in the book it quotes the following; Anas RA reported Allahs Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as saying " if anyone says in the morning or evening ( the above ) then Allah will free a quarter of him from the fire. Whoever says it twice Allah will free half of him from the fire, whoever says it three times Allah will free three quarters if him from the fire. Whoever says it four times Allah will free him from the fire (completely).
( At-Trimidhi transmitted it saying this is a Ḥasan ḥadīth )
At-Tirmithee collected it in his Jaami' (#3501) and called it ghareeb (strange).
Abū Dāwūd also collected it in his Sunan (#5078).
It was graded hasan by al-Munthiree in at-Targheeb wat-Tarheeb.
It was called "hasan-ṣaḥīḥ" by Ibn Taymiyyah in al-Kalim at-Tayyib (his du'aa' collection).
Al-Albaanee refutes this in Silsilatul-Aḥādīthid-Dha'eefah (#1041) in detail, showing the weaknesses of both chains of this ḥadīth and how they can not be used to strengthen each other. This argument is convincing, and seems to be what is most correct about this ḥadīth. And Allaah knows best.
NOTE: At-Tirmithee did not call the ḥadīth "hasan" as quoted in the question. Rather, he called it ghareeb, which is a grading that commonly indicates weakness.

JazakAllahu Khair brother Moosa for clarifying this narration-
I've heard that there are many unauthentic narrations in the book 'Hisnul Muslim' however Im yet to come across a checking for this book. Does one exsist in the English language? or better still is there another book that contains authentic Narrations and Adkaar that could be reffered to?
Its originally found on bakkah.net which is down right now.
Nadeem: I don't know of any grounds for that, specifically for the athaan. The burden of proof lies upon the claimant in cases of worship. If you locate a some kind of reference for it, I might be able to follow it up in shaa' Allaah.
In the future, you can begin a new thread for a question off the topic of the current thread. May Allaah bless you.
