Ibn Taymiyyah’s View On Mursal Reports


Ibn Taymiyyah said:

“The scholars have differed whether to accept or reject the mursal reports. The most correct opinion is that some of them are acceptable, others are rejected, and others are mawqoof…

A mursal report that conflicts with the reports of trustworthy narrators is rejected. And if a mursal report is narrated by two narrators whose shaykhs are different, this confirms its truth, because one would not usually expect them to make identical errors.”

[From an unprinted manuscript by Al-Haafidh Ibn ‘Abdul-Haadee in Al-Maktabat Az-Zahiriyyah in Damascus]
