There is a very interesting narration in Saheeh Bukhari, 5/37

3812 – حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ يُوسُفَ، قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ مَالِكًا، يُحَدِّثُ عَنْ أَبِي النَّضْرِ، مَوْلَى عُمَرَ بْنِ عُبَيْدِ اللَّهِ، عَنْ عَامِرِ بْنِ سَعْدِ بْنِ أَبِي وَقَّاصٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، قَالَ: ” مَا سَمِعْتُ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، يَقُولُ: لِأَحَدٍ يَمْشِي عَلَى الأَرْضِ إِنَّهُ مِنْ أَهْلِ الجَنَّةِ، إِلَّا لِعَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ سَلاَمٍ “

Sa’ad bin Abi Waqas, one of the 10 who were given news of Heaven, narrates: I did not hear Holy Prophet telling anyone walking Earth that He is amongst people of heaven except Abdullah bin Salam

This narration is also present in Saheeh Muslim, 4/1930

Now this is very strange that one of those who were part of Hadeeth Ashra Mubashira, he is saying that He did not hear it from Holy Prophet asws.

AhluSunnah may argue that he said “He did not hear Holy Prophet”; and not that “Holy Prophet did not say it”.

But the point is, He lived for quite some time. Do you think none of the Sahaba told him that He is part of the elite group?

And if some Sahabi did tell him, was he not aware that “All Sahaba are Adil/just” and that “Mursal of Sahabi is accepted”. Why was he not accepting their point then?

Now the main strategy for AhluSunnah would be do say: Well, none of the Sahaba ever told him, and We believe this.

Though it is very strange to believe, but let us talk about Hadeeth Ashra Mubashira. Read the rest of this entry »

In Sunni’s world of I’lm-ur-Rijal, this is an accepted principle that if a Sahabi has not even heard a narration from Holy Prophet asws, or He was not present at that time, but He says “Holy Prophet said”, it is considered as authentic.

For example,

Ibn Salah states this in his Moqaddama, p. 56;

Ibn Kathir in his Ikhtisaar Uloom-ul-Hadeeth, urdu translation,research by Sheikh Zubair Ali Zai p. 37 &  Sheikh Zubair Ali Zai wrote in the footnotes that Ibn Hajr stated that there is agreement between all Scholars of Hadeeth upon authenticity of Mursal of Sahabi

Syed al-Khoi has mentioned in his Mu’jam Rijal-ul-Hadeeth, 19/102, that there are many narration in praise of Mukhtar. Let us see two narrations from Ikhtiyar Ma’rifat-ur-Rijal, 1/341

ابراهيم بن محمد الختلي، قال: حدثني أحمد بن ادريس القمي، قال: حدثني محمد بن أحمد، قال، حدثني الحسن بن علي الكوفي، عن العباس ابن عامر، عن سيف بن عميرة، عن جارود بن المنذر، عن ابي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: ما امتشطت فينا هاشمية ولا اختضبت حتى بعث الينا المختار برؤس الذين قتلوا الحسين عليه السلام.

Imam al-Sadiq asws said: Women of Bani Hashim did not comb their hair, nor they applied hair color till Mukhtar sent heads of those who killed Imam Hussein asws.

There is a narration in Sunan Darmi, 2/962, Research by Sheikh Hussein Saleem Asad

1580 – أَخْبَرَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يُوسُفَ، حَدَّثَنَا الْأَوْزَاعِيُّ، عَنْ يَحْيَى بْنِ أَبِي كَثِيرٍ، عَنْ أَبِي سَلَمَةَ بْنِ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ، قال: حَدَّثَنِي أَبُو هُرَيْرَةَ قَالَ: بَيْنَمَا عُمَرُ بْنُ الْخَطَّابِ يَخْطُبُ إِذْ دَخَلَ رَجُلٌ، [ص:963] فَعَرَّضَ بِهِ عُمَرُ، فَقَالَ: يَا أَمِيرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ، مَا زِدْتُ أَنْ تَوَضَّأْتُ حِينَ سَمِعْتُ النِّدَاءَ، فَقَالَ: وَالْوُضُوءَ أَيْضًا؟ أَلَمْ تَسْمَعْ رَسُولَ اللہ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَقُولُ: «إِذَا جَاءَ أَحَدُكُمْ يَوْمَ الْجُمُعَةِ، فَلْيَغْتَسِلْ»

Let us share a Narration from Sunan Darmi, 5/1365

2195 – أَخْبَرَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْمُبَارَكِ، حَدَّثَنِي الْوَلِيدُ بْنُ مُسْلِمٍ، حَدَّثَنِي ابْنُ جَابِرٍ، عَنْ خَالِدِ بْنِ اللَّجْلَاجِ، وَسَأَلَهُ، مَكْحُولٌ أَنْ يُحَدِّثَهُ، قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ عَبْدَ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنَ عَائِشٍ، يَقُولُ: سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللہ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ [ص:1366] يَقُولُ: «رَأَيْتُ رَبِّي فِي أَحْسَنِ صُورَةٍ» قَالَ: فِيمَ يَخْتَصِمُ الْمَلَأُ الْأَعْلَى؟ فَقُلْتُ: «أَنْتَ أَعْلَمُ يَا رَبِّ» ، قَالَ: ” فَوَضَعَ كَفَّهُ بَيْنَ كَتِفَيَّ فَوَجَدْتُ بَرْدَهَا بَيْنَ ثَدْيَيَّ، [ص:1367] فَعَلِمْتُ مَا فِي السَّمَوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ، وَتَلَا {وَكَذَلِكَ نُرِي إِبْرَاهِيمَ مَلَكُوتَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَلِيَكُونَ مِنَ الْمُوقِنِينَ}

Holy Prophet said: I saw My Lord in best of Shape. He asked me: You know why there is a fight in Higher sky? I replied: You know more O Lord. So He placed His Hand on my Chest, and I could feel the coldness of it. And then I came to know what is in Skies and Earth. And then Holy Prophet recited the verse which states that this is how We showed Ibrahim kingdom of Skies and Earth so that He becomes in believers.

Hazrat Abu dhar is one of the great Companions of Holy Prophet (asws). Let us see a Narration to know whether He went to Rabda on His own wish. Ibn Sa’ad mentions in His Tabaqat, 4/171-172

قَالَ: أَخْبَرَنَا الْفَضْلُ بْنُ دُكَيْنٍ قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا جَعْفَرُ بْنُ بُرْقَانَ عَنْ ثَابِتِ بْنِ الْحَجَّاجِ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللہ بْنِ سِيدَانَ السُّلَمِيِّ قَالَ: تَنَاجَى أَبُو ذَرٍّ وَعُثْمَانُ حَتَّى ارْتَفَعَتْ أَصْوَاتُهُمَا.
ثُمَّ انْصَرَفَ أَبُو ذَرٍّ مُتَبَسِّمًا فَقَالَ لَهُ النَّاسُ: مَا لَكَ وَلأَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ؟ قَالَ: سَامِعٌ مُطِيعٌ وَلَوْ أَمَرَنِي أَنْ آتِيَ صَنْعَاءَ أَوْ عَدْنَ ثُمَّ اسْتَطَعْتُ أَنْ أَفْعَلَ لَفَعَلْتُ. وَأَمَرَهُ عثمان أن يخرج إلى الربذة..

Let us see another example

We find a Narration in Musnad Ahmad, 28/195, which states that shadad Abi Ammar met Wathila and there were few people with him. And Imam Ali was mentioned. When They left, Wathila told them that should I tell You what I saw with Holy Prophet (asws). Shadad told him: Yes. He said that He went to House of BiBi Fatima (asws) to ask for Imam Ali. She told him that He had gone to Holy Prophet. So He sat waiting for Him. Then He came alongwith Holy Prophet, Imam Hasan and Imam Hussein, and they had held hands of each other. So He combined them in His Cloak. And recited verse of Purification. And that They are His AhluBait, and They have more right on Him. Arabic text for the Narration is:- Read the rest of this entry »
