Dear scholar. Is there any hadith hat speaks about the virtue of catching up with opening takbeer in prayer?

Answer


What Is the Virtue of Catching up with the Opening Takbeer?

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

All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.


In this fatwa:

Whoever catches up the first takbeer will be free from the Fire and free from hypocrisy.


Answering your question, the Fatwa Center at Islam Q & A, states:

 Imam At-Tirmidhi narrated that Anas ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever prays to Allah for forty days in congregation, catching up with the first takbeer, he will be recorded as being free from two things: free from the Fire and free from hypocrisy.”

This hadith was classed as weak by At-Tirmidhi and a number of earlier scholars. However, some later scholars classed it as good, including al-Albani in Sahih At-Tirmidhi.

Almighty Allah knows best.
