translated from work of brother jabir ul mohammadi

nisai wrote in his book “sunan ul kubra” after mentioning a narration that

“nisai said: ibrahim bin yaqoob did not narrate this hadeeth except after taking dinar (arab currency)”

[sunan ul kubra, vol 1, page 93]

ibrahim bin yaqoob was termed imam, grand hafiz by dhabi
[tazkira tul huffaz, vol 2, page 506]

as per mizzi, opinions of other scholars about him were

nisai= thiqa
abu hatim=sudooq
abu bakar khateeb = thiqa, hafiz, pious
[tehzeeb ul kamal, vol 32, page 314]
