An Example Of A Narrator Who The Scholars Have Differed Over

From the previous three posts, we came to realise why and how the Imaams of Hadeeth (in specific; the Imaams of Al-Jarh Wat-ta’deel) differed over a narrator of hadeeth. Below is an example of such a narrator:

A name among the early third century transmitters is Hajjaaj Bin Nusayrat Al-Fasaatitee of Basra (d. 214H).

Yahyaa Ibn Ma’een said he was “saadiq (truthful).”

Ibn Hibbaan mentioned him among the thiqaat (reliable).

‘Alee Ibn Al-Madeenee said “his hadeeth is dismissed.”

Aboo Haatim, Ar-Raazee, Aboo Daawood and An-Nisaa’ee have considered him weak and have said his hadeeth was abandoned.

And finally, Imaam Bukhaaree said that many remained silent about him.
