وأما حديث حذيفة فساقط لأنه من طريق الوليد بن جميع وهو هالك ولا نراه يعلم من وضع الحديث فإنه قد روى أخبارا فيها أن أبا بكر وعمر وعثمان وطلحة وسعد بن أبي وقاص رضي الله عنهم أرادوا قتل النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم وإلقاءه من العقبة في تبوك وهذا هو الكذب الموضوع
Ibn Hazm says: "Hudaifah's hadeeth is false, because it is narrated through Walid Ibn Jumai – he is unreliable – it seems he doesn’t know who fabricated the hadith, because he narrated many reports in which state that Aboo Bakr, Umar, Uthmaan, Talha, and Sa’d ibn Abi Waqas, attempted to murder the Holy Prophet (saw), by pushing him over from Al-Aqabah during Tabuk. This is a fabricated lie". Source
Walid ibn Jumai has been declared Thiqah by many great Sunni-scholars and many have narrated from him, even Bukhari en Muslim. So this foolish "refutation" of ibn Hazm is ridiculous! The narrations of Walid ibn Jumai have to be accepted, so the secret of who tried to murder the prophet is revealed!
Interestingly; Umar revealed his true self (of being one of the hypocrites!):
وحذيفة أحد أصحاب النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم الأربعة عشر النجباء، كان النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم أسر إليه أسماء المنافقين، وحفظ
عنه الفتن التي تكون بين يدي الساعة، وناشده عمر بالله: أنا من المنافقين اللهم لا، ولا أزكى أحداً بعدك
Huzaifah is one of the 14 noble companions of the Messenger of Allah (صلی الله و علیه و آله وسلم), the Messenger of Allah (صلی الله و علیه و آله وسلم) revealed to him the names of Munafiqeen, and protected him from the difficulties of the Hour, and Umar was swearing him by Allah: "Am I among these Munafiqeen?“, in which he Huzaifah replied " By Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì No!, I will never tell anyone after you". Source & Source
Why would Umar ask this if he knew he wasn't at Aqabah? Why would Umar ask this if he knows that he is a good pious Muslim?
One might say: But Hudhaifa replied in the negative to Umar. This tells us that Umar wasn't one of the hypocrites?
Answer: The messenger of Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì revealed their names to Hudaifa and Ammar (r.h) and told them that they wanted to kill him (saw) and told them to pretend so as if you don't know them. (Tafsir Ibn Kathir, vol 4, page 181/182)
