the beauty of this thread is that it will tell u about the confusion which albani creates

i mean, if you read mishkat, vol 1, page 397, narration 1267, you will see that he is trying to highlight the weakness of hadeeth

but on the other hand, if you read irwa ghaleel, vol 2, page 156, narration 423; he terms the hadeeth sahih

mohammad bin abdullah tabreezi mentioned two sources for the hadeeth; i.e, tirmidhi and abi daood

here there is addition of ibn maja

what i cannot understand is

either you try to authenticate; or you try to weaken

but this is what we have seen so far;

albani style
