Can we post more well-known hadith?

 

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 57, Number 96 :

Narrated by Ibn Abi Nu'm

A person asked 'Abdullah bin 'Umar whether a Muslim could kill flies. I heard him saying (in reply). "The people of Iraq are asking about the killing of flies while they themselves murdered the son of the daughter of Allah's Apostle . The Prophet said, They (i.e. Hasan and Husain) are my two sweet basils in this world."

 

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 57, Number 52 :

Narrated by Salama

Ali happened to stay behind the Prophet and (did not join him) during the battle of Khaibar for he was having eye trouble. Then he said, "How could I remain behind Allah's Apostle?" So 'Ali set out following the Prophet , When it was the eve of the day in the morning of which Allah helped (the Muslims) to conquer it, Allah's Apostle said, "I will give the flag (to a man), or tomorrow a man whom Allah and His Apostle love will take the flag," or said, "A man who loves Allah and His Apostle; and Allah will grant victory under his leadership." Suddenly came 'Ali whom we did not expect. The people said, "This is 'Ali." Allah's Apostle gave him the flag and Allah granted victory under his leadership.

 

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 57, Number 56 :

Narrated by Ubaida

Narrated Sad that the Prophet said to 'Ali, "Will you not be pleased from this that you are to me like Aaron was to Moses?"

Merits of Imam Ali ☘☘

 Muslim narrates from Sa’d b. Abi Waqqas that he was asked by Mu’awiyah why he refused to verbally abuse Ali. Sa’d replied:

"I remember three sayings of the Prophet about Ali which caused me not to say anything bad about him. If I possessed even one of these qualities it would be better for me than red camels.

1. The first was that when the Prophet wanted to go to the war of Tabuk, he left Ali in Medina. Ali was very sad at not having the good fortune to join the army and fight for the sake of God. He went to the Prophet, saying: ‘Do you leave me with the children and women?’ The Prophet replied: ‘Are you not happy to be to me, as Aaron was to Moses, except that there will be no prophet after me?’

2. Second I heard from the Prophet on the day of conquest of Khaybar: ‘Certainly I will give the flag [of Islam] to a man that loves God and His Messenger and is loved by God and His Messenger’. We hoped to be given the flag, but the Prophet said: ‘Call Ali for me!’ Ali came while suffering from pain in his eyes. The Prophet gave him the flag and at his hands God granted us victory.

3. Third when the verse of Mubahalah was revealed the Prophet called Ali, Fatimah, Hasan and Husayn and said: ‘My Lord! These are my household".

[Sahih by Muslim, Vol.4, p.1871, no.2408. (Kitab Fada’il al- Sahabah, Sakhr serial No. 4420)]

@Al-Hassan @sunnilove2hussain

As a Sunni, i loved many narrations quoted in this topic and in the OP as well. However, the first things that i noticed was that many narrations while indicating "Grading" only grades the narrators and not the narration itself and that is why "Isnad Saheeh" is there.

Now that is something a bit tricky.

Like we have in the second narration 'Saheeh Isnad' but the narration is graded as 'Daeef' and why is that?

The narrator in the said hadith is "Isra'il" i.e. Ismael bin Khalifa, a well known shia.

As per Ahlus Sunnah science of hadith, anyone who belongs to a minority group (like shia or khawarij) and narrates a tradition which favors his beliefs then the matn or the tradition cannot be taken as true on his authority alone.

So any Shia (may he be otherwise reliable) when will show hatred toward any prominent sahabi (like Israil hated uthman [ra]) or he narrates something that talks in favor of his own beliefs then his statement in such case cannot be taken as authentic on his authority alone.

And that is the reason why many narrations above only mention Isnad Saheeh and not Hadith Saheeh!!

Wouldn't the narrator be in the sanad? How does having an unacceptable narrator not make a hadith isnad dhai'if?

The only thing that could make a isnad saheeh hadith dhai'if otherwise, per your sect or others, would be the person grading the hadith having a problem with the matn- in other words, the hadith is saheeh in every way but someone doesn't like what is actually being said.

Which is predictable, given the subject matter.

Yes, having an unacceptable narrator definitely renders a sanad Daeef however even if the sanad contains trustworthy narrators, a narration could still be considered daeef etc.There are a few examples:

a). A narrator although trustworthy (and no matter sunni) does Tadlees... i.e. he reports from his teacher's teacher directly without saying that he himself heard from the shaykh or he removes the former narrator. Since, his learning of hadith from his teacher's teacher is not proven therefore his tradition would be deemed weak! Like Sufiyan Thawri is otherwise Thiqa himself but when he did tadlees (which he normally did) his narrations fell into the category of Daeef.

b). A narrator although trustworthy, in later part of his life suffered from weak memory, so the narrations of that era would be deemed weak

c). A narrator although trustworthy, states something that is khabar wahid and also seems to contradict a narration from a more reliable narrator than his his narration would be deemed weak.

(BTW Isra'il is a reliable narrator but as i said that when he, as a Shii, will narrate something which favors his beliefs then such narration would not get the status of authentic as per the laid down rules... and the same is expected from Shia ilm al hadith that if in a shia book a narraton goes in favor of Ahlus Sunnah and narrated by a Sunni then Shias won't take that on his authority alone. Even Shias, those Ghaali won't get the acceptability bcos of their beliefs)

All those cases would result in the hadith being graded isnad dhai'if not isnad saheeh.

The point still stands that if there was even a single narrator who's word on the matter couldn't be accepted, the hadith would be called isnad dhai'if. The fact that these ahadith are granted the status of isnad saheeh shows that their sanad is completely acceptable as per the standards of Sunnis, and the word of the narrators can be accepted.

The discourse you have presented on the method of judging the sanad is irrelevant.

Not really, the Isnad would remain reliable but due to certain "illah" in matn or Tareek, the narration would not be considered reliable.

For example: Sufyan Thawri is a reliable narrator as he is deemed truthful and religiously upright person... (a). so his narrations would be deemed authentic (b.) however whenever he will do 'Tadlees' then his tradition would be deemed weak.

The sanad in both the two narrations (a) (b) are the same and thus there cannot be a change in the grading of Isnad because it does not show any difference, however the difference comes there in the Matn or Tareeq.

That is why these aspects are dealt individually. I hope it should be more clear to you now.

Salamun alaykum.

1719 حدثنا عبد اللَّهِ حدثني أبي ثنا وَكِيعٌ عن شَرِيكٍ عن أبي إِسْحَاقَ عن هُبَيْرَةَ خَطَبَنَا الْحَسَنُ بن عَلِيٍّ رضي الله عنه فقال لقد فارقكم رَجُلٌ بِالأَمْسِ لم يَسْبِقْهُ الأَوَّلُونَ بِعَلْمٍ وَلاَ يُدْرِكُهُ الآخِرُونَ كان رسول اللَّهِ صلي الله عليه وسلم يَبْعَثُهُ بِالرَّايَةِ جِبْرِيلُ عن يَمِينِهِ وَمِيكَائِيلُ عن شِمَالِهِ لاَ يَنْصَرِفُ حتي يُفْتَحَ له .

From Ibrahim al-Tamimi, he said: When the pledge of allegiance was given to Abu Bakr, Salman said: You have erred and fallen into chaos.

But if a man among you who prayed and fasted until he meets Allah while he holds hatred towards the Ahlulbayt of Muhammad, he will surely enter the hellfire.

We heard the Prophet (saw) say, “Whoever I am his master (Mawla), then ‘Ali is his master. O Allah, support those who support him and oppose those who oppose him”. And this man right here is Abu Ayyoub among us [bearing witness].” Then Abu Ayyoub uncovered his face and said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (saw) say, “Whoever I am his master, then ‘Ali is his master. O Allah, support those who support him and oppose those who oppose him”.

It has been narrated on the authority of Jabir b. Samura that the Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: This order will continue to be dominant until there have been twelve Caliphs. The narrator says: Then he said something which I could not understand, and I said to my father: What did he say? My father told me that he said that all of them (Caliphs) would be from the Quraish. [Sahih Muslim, Hadith 4482]

There are some books which written by Sunni scholars who openly mention the virtues and privileges of Ahlulbayt. for example The book "Kawkab Durri" or "Manaqi Murtazawi" was authored by Sayyid Saleh Tirmidhi Kashfi. He is a follower of Sunni school of jurisprudence and theology but he is a lover of the Ahlul-Bayt.

Manaqib Murtazawi whose other name is "Kawkab Durri fi Fadhail Ali Karramallah Wajhoh" is a book on the merits and virtues of the Commander of the Faithful, Ali (A.S). The text of this book includes literary, religious and mystical contents. Despite the author being a Sunni, his extreme tendency towards the Ahlul-Bayt and his close ties with Shia have caused him to write a book not so different from the works authored by Shia scholars.

The author of this book reports narrations from sources such as the six main Sunni books, Mustadrak of Hākim-e Neishaburi, 'Uyoon Akhbar al-Redha and Kashf al-Ghummah.  In his Ithbat al-Hodat bin-Nosus wa al-Mu'jizat, Sheikh Hurr Amili has reported narrations from Manaqib Murtazawi.

When the battle was over, I traveled to al-Madina and stopped by Om Salamah. I said to here, “By Allah, I am not here to acquire food and beverages but I am the servant of Abu Dhar”.

When 'Umar b. al-Khattab was informed of this, he left to Fatima and said to her, "O daughter or Allah's messenger. There is no one more beloved to me than your father and no one more beloved to me after him than you. But by Allah, if these people arranged in your house again, I swear that I will order for the house to be burned on them!". Aslam said: When 'Umar left, they came to her and she said to them, "Did you know that 'Umar came to me today and he sworn by Allah that if you returned to host those meetings, he will burn the house upon you?".

And the meaning of it is that Allah will give him offspring that will remain until the last hour. Look at how many from the Ahlulbayt have been killed, yet the world is filled with them and at the same, look at how no none from Banu Ummayah remains in this Dunya. Also, look at how among his Ahlulbayt there were as major scholars, such as al-Baqir, al-Sadiq, al-Kadhim and al-Redha. [Tafsir al-Razi]

This thread is about the virtues of ahlulbayt in sunni literature. I was just making a quick point so the reader to know who this person is. Your question of "Now what makes that person a nasbi" would derail this thread so let's not start the discussion here. There is a thread already opened called Who is a nasabi. We should talk there and not here.

There are different chains for this hadith and some Sunnis have declared those to be weak. However, I recommend the brothers to use this version as all the narrators are trustworthy. This hadith is 100% sahih according to sunni rijal system. Enjoy!

Mustadrak al-Hakim:

عن سفيان بن سعيد الثوري (من رجال الصحاح الستة) عن عبد الله بن عثمان بن خثيم (وثّقه : ابن معين والعجلي والنسائي وابن سعد وذكره ابن حبّان في الثقات وقال أبو حاتم : ما به بأس صالح الحديث) عن عبد الرحمن بن بهمان (ذكره ابن حبّان في الثقات ووثّقه ابن حجر في التهذيب وتقريب التهذيب ، وكذا غيرها) قال : سمعت جابر بن عبد الله يقول : سمعت رسول الله يقول : " أنا مدينة العلم وعلي بابها فمن أراد العلم فليأت من الباب ".

Sufyan ibn Sa'eed al-Thawri - Abdullah ibn Uthman ibn Khuthaym - Abdur-Rahman ibn Bahmaan - Jabir ibn Abdullah al-Ansar - the Holy Prophet  (PBUH) said:

"I am the city of knowledge, and Ali is the gate. Whosoever desires the city must go through the gate."

All the narrators are thiqa (trustworthy):

1. Sufyan ibn Sa'eed al-Thawri: One of the narrators of Sahih al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim.

2. Abdullah ibn Uthman ibn Khuthaym: Ibn Hibban has included his name in his Thuqaat, and Ibn Ma'een, al-Ajli, Nisai, Abu Hatim and Ibn Sa'eed have all declared him thiqah.

3. Abdur-Rahman ibn Bahmaan: Ibn Hibban has included his name in his Thuqaat. Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani has declared him thiqah in both tahdheeb al-Tahdheeb and Taqreeb al-Tahdheeb.

4. Jabir ibn Abdullah al-Ansari: A prominent Companion.

What I don't get is why whenever they are grading hadith such as this one above, they feel the need to put "Saheeh but Bukhari and Muslim haven't mentioned it", as if that's some sort of criteria for accepting a tradition.

What is the point of this post?

sunnies love the imams, Shias just live the overboard. 

Any person who the prophet loved, I love. 

 

The problem with our Sunni Shia split is that there are so many uneducated people. Some sunnies don't know who the imams are, only because this split has led to that. Some Shias hate omar, only because this split has led to that. 

Haram on each individual person to not know the history of Islam. To care about who lead Islam afterwards is not what Islam is about, that is your personal feelings.

Simply because loving the Ahlulbayt (as) out of words without absolutely following their teachings does not suffice in obeying the orders of the Prophet (saw). Both the Sunni and Imami school fundamentally believe that the Prophet (saw) before his demise ordered the Muslims to follow the Quran and his Sunnah, and that one will not separate from the other until the final hour, and we believe that the only gateway to the Sunnah is via the Ahlulbayt. The Ahlulbayt from all of the Sahabah, Tabi'in and Atba' at-Tabi'in are the only ones qualified to hold an authoritative position in teaching the Prophet's Sunnah to the Muslims and they hold this unique position based on their superiority in virtues, knowledge and piety as shown in this thread.

No brother.

According to the hadith of Muslim, the Prophet clearly said that "I am leaving behind two things - the Quran and my itrat (family)."

The hadith of Quran and sunna comes not from one of the six books but from Muwatta of Imam Malik.

Sunnis regard Muslim as more reliable but they always quote the Muwatta hadith.

I understand the point that you're trying to reach but there is also a greater context to this. One of the meanings of the word Sunnah in Arabic is 'teachings' and in the context of the aforementioned Hadith, it is the teachings of RasulAllah (saw), so the Hadiths are not entirely mutually exclusive or conflict with each other. Malik's report is not absolutely weak and I believe its more appropriate to rather say that the issue with it is that its vague or generic since it could be interpreted to mean that the "Sunnah" of the Prophet (saw) can be taken from anyone who met him, like Abu Hurayra or Malik b. Anas and other individuals whom are not recognized by Imamis, and not restricting it to the Ahlulbayt (as).

The Prophet (saw) ordered the Muslims to follow the Ahlulbayt (as) because they are the most authentic source to reach his Sunnah.
