Ibn Taymiyyah’s View On Mursal Reports

Posted in Hadith Studies with tags , , , , , , on February 1, 2016 by TheAuthenticBase

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]

See this post for more quotes regarding the Mursal narrations.

The Unauthenticity Of The Narration About Bilal Visiting The Grave Of The Prophet (saw)

Posted in Inspirational Stories, Miscellaneous with tags , , , , , , , , on January 5, 2015 by TheAuthenticBase

Regarding this story (click here) of bilal returning from shaam and doing the adhaan in madenah, then it has been declared unauthentic. Below is the verification of the hadeeth, declaring it unauthentic:

Haafiz Ibn AbdulHaadee (one of ibn taymiyyah foremost students) mentiones in “Saarim Al-Munki Fee Radd ‘alaa As-Subkee”:

This narration is not authentic. This narration has been narrated by Al-Haakim Aboo Ahmad Ibn Ahmad Ibn Ishaaq An-Nisaabooree Al-Haafiz in his “Juzz Khaamis” from his “Fawaa’id”, and from his way it has been narrated by ‘Asaakir in the mention of Bilaal, and it is a narration that is ghareeb (unknown) munkar (unauthentic and contradicting authentic reports) with an isnaad having inqitaa (disconnection) and majhool (unknown) narrators.

Muhammad Ibn Al-Fayd Al-Ghasaanee was alone in reporting it from Ibraheem ibn Muhammad Ibn Sulaymaan Ibn Bilaal from his father, from his grandfather.

Ibraheem ibn Muhammad is unknown, not knowing to be thiqah (upright) or having amaanah (trust), neither dabt (accuracy), nor adaalah (integrity), rather he is majhool (unknown). (1)

As for Muhammad Ibn Sulaymaan (his father who he narrates this narration from), then he is qaleel al-hadeeth (narrating few hadeeth). (2)

As for Sulaymaan Ibn Bilaal, then he is a man not famous, rather majhool al-haal and qalil ar-rawayah (unknown and narrating few narrations), and he did not become famous in holding knowledge and transmitting it. And none from the Imaams declared him to be thiqah (upright) as far as we know.

And we request the one taking this as a proof and basing on this narration; who declared him to be thiqah (trustworthy) among the Imaams? And (who) relied on his hadeeth among the Hufaaz (memorisers of hadeeth)? Or who praised him among the scholars until his narration can be based upon and one can rely on his report?

Footnotes:

(1) Adh-Dhahabee said about him: “There is jahaalah (ignorance) in what is narrated from him by Muhammad Ibn Al-Fayd Al-Ghassaanee.” And Ibn Hajr mentions this incident in his lisaan and says: “This is a story clearly fabricated.”

(2) Aboo Haatim said of him, “Munkar al-hadeeth (abandoned in hadeeth).” See Taareekh Al-Kabeer 1/98

Virtues of Chapters in the Qur’aan – Surat Al Baqarah

By Shaykh Al-Albaani

The Authentic Ahaadeeth

1) On the Authority of Abu Hurayrah, may Allaah be pleased with him, the Messenger of Allaah –‏صلى الله عليه وسلم – said:

Do not turn your homes into graves, Indeed the Shaytaan flees from a house that Suratul Baqarah is read in.
[Collected by Muslim]

2) On the Authority of bu Mas’ood – may Allaah be pleased with him – the Prophet of Allaah –‏صلى الله عليه وسلم – said:

The last two Ayaat of Suratul Baqarah will suffice whoever reads them in a night.
[Collected by al Bukhaaree. T.N. Starting from Aman ar Rasool…it doesn’t mean the last two Ayaat literally as explained by ibn Hajar and others.]

3) On the authority of Abu Umaamah – may Allaah be pleased with him, the Messenger of Allaah – صلى الله عليه وسلم – said:

Whoever reads Ayatul Kursee after every obligatory prayer, nothing will prevent this person from entering Jannah except death.

4) On the authority of an Nu’maan ibn Basheer, the Prophet –‏صلى الله عليه وسلم – said:

Indeed Allaah had written a book before He created the heavens and earth by two thousand years. He revealed two verses from it that with which He concluded Suratul Baqarah. Shaytaan will not draw close to a house in which they are read for three nights.

Virtues Of Chapters In The Qur’aan – Surat Al Faatihah

By Shaykh Al-Albaani

The Authentic Ahaadeeth:

1) On the authority of ibn ‘Abbaas, may Allaah be pleased with them, who said:

“While Jibreel was sitting with the Messenger of Allaah – صلى الله عليه وسلم – he heard a creaking from above, so he raised his head and said:
That is a gate in the heavens that opened today, it had never been opened before until today.’ An angel descended from it, he [Jibreel] said: ‘This is an angel that descended to Earth, he never descended before until today.’ He [the angel] extended the Salaam and said: ‘Rejoice for two lights that have been given to you, no Messenger was given them before you; the Faatihah (opening) of the Book, and the concluding verses of Surat al Baqarah, you will not read a word from them, except that you will be given it.’”

[Collected by Muslim, Saheeh at Targheeb wat Tarheeb: 1456 – al Albaanee.]

2) The Messenger of Allaah – صلى الله عليه وسلم – said:

The likes of it was not revealed in the Tawraat, or the Injeel, or the Zaboor or in the Furqaan. It is ‘the seven oft repeated’ and the Great Qur-aan that I was given.
[Collected by both al Bukhaaree and Muslim.]

3) The Messenger of Allaah – صلى الله عليه وسلم – stated:

“Allaah the Elevated said: ‘I have split the Salaat between Me and my servant into two parts, and My servant will receive what he asked for.
When the servant says {All praise is due to the Lord of the worlds} Allaah would say: ‘My servant has exalted me.

When he says: {The Most Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy} Allaah would say: ‘My servant has praised Me.

When he says: {the Only Owner of the day of Deen} Allaah would say: ‘My servant has glorified Me.

When he says: {You alone do we worship, and from You alone do we seek aid} Allaah would say: ‘This is between Me and My slave, and for My slave is what he asks.

When he says: {Guide us to the straight path, The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger , nor of those who went astray.} Allaah would say: ‘That is for My servant and My servant shall get what he asks for.’”

[Collected by Muslim ‘Saheeh at Targheeb wat Tarheeb’ :1455 – al Albaanee.]
