Question:

I want to know is this an authentic Hadeeth: 
The Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) says: “Whoever reads Fajr (for men, specifically in Jama'ah, for women at home, in Jama'ah, or wherever) and remembers Allah until sunrise (that is, reads Qur'aan, memorizes chapters, etc.), then prays two Raka'h (units) of Shurooq (sunrise) he will get the reward of complete Hajj and 'Umrah (the word complete was emphasized three times by the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention )”.
Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger, may Allah exalt his mention as well as that of his family and all his companions.
 
The narration that the questioner is referring to is reported by At-Tirmithi  may  Allah  have  mercy  upon  him and narrated by Anas Ibn Maalik, may Allah be pleased with him, that the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) said: ''Whoever prays Fajr in congregation and sits mentioning Allah until sunrise, then prays two Raka'h, he will get a complete reward of Hajj and 'Umrah, (he repeated 'complete reward' thrice)." And this is an authentic narration.
At-Tabaraani  may  Allah  have  mercy  upon  him reported the same narration with a different wording, and narrated by Ibn 'Umar, may Allah be pleased with him. The narration reads: ''The Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) when he prays Fajr, used to remain sitting until he is able to pray again (i.e. after sunrise) and the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) said: ''Whoever prays Fajr and then remains in his position until he is able to pray again, it is as if he had performed an accepted Hajj and 'Umrah.''
So this is a great reward for whoever does so.
Allah Knows best.
