Ahaadeeth that are popular, Widespread and Weak (Part 2)

Bismillahi Wal Hamdullillah Was Salaatu Was Salaamu ‘Alaa Rasoolillahi

Ammaa Ba’d:

In continuing with this series:

From the un-established ahaadeeth:

11. When he (The Messenger – Sallallahu ‘Alaihi wa salam) came to Madina, the Women and children began to sing:

‘Tala’al Badru ‘Alainaa’ (The full moon has risen upon us)

‘Min Thaneeyaatil Wadaa’ (From Thaneeyatil Wadaa'(one of the entrances into Madina))

‘Wajabash Shukru ‘Alainaa’ (Giving thanks is mandatory upon us)

‘Maa Da’aa Lillahi Daa’ (As long as there is a caller calling to Allah)

Ruling: Weak (Collected by Abul Hasan al khala’ee in Al Fawaa’id 2/59 and Baihaqi in ‘Dalaa’il 2/233 there are three missing narrators from its chain so it is considered ‘Mu’dhal’)

Ibnil Qayyim rejects this claim with his statement:

It is clear conjecture, because thaneeyatul Wadaa’ is in the direction of shaam (Syria, Jordon region) hence the one who comes from Makkah to Madinah, doesnt even see it! except if he heads towards Shaam

(Zaadul Ma’aad 3/13)

Imaam Ghazaali mentions the story with the addition ‘..while playing the Duff and singing

Imaam Al ‘Iraaqi mentions rebutting this: “There is no mention of The Duff and singing in it!

12. ” Whosoever has three boys and does not name one of them Muhammad, then he has acted ignorantly

Ruling: Fabricated.

The Hadeeth is collected by Imaam Tabaraani in ‘Mu’jamul Kabeer 108-109 and in its chain is Laith ibn Abi Sulaim who is a weak narrator

This may explain a customary practice in many muslim countries of adding ‘Muhammad’ to the name of every child (i.e. Muhammad Illyas, Muhammad Yusuf, Muhammad Shafeeq etc)

Wallahu A’lam

13. “If the Khateeb ascends the Minbar (i.e. on Jumu’ah) then there is no prayer or speech

Ruling: Baatil (false)

Since the hadeeth opposes that which is known to be authentic from that:

1. The hadeeth: “If one of you comes on the day of Jumu’ah and the Imaam has come out (i.e to address the congregation) then make two rak’ahs” (Collected by Bukhaari and Muslim)

2. The Hadeeth of Sulaik Al Ghatafaani who came to the masjid while the messenger was giving the sermon so he said to him “Oh Sulaik stand and perform two Rak’ahs and let him perform two light rak’ahs then he said “If one of you comes on the day of Jumu’ah and the Imaam is giving the sermon, then let him make two rak’ah and let him perform two light rak’ahs” (Collected by Muslim 3/14-15)

3. The hadeeth “If you say to your companion on the day of Jumu’ah ‘be quiet’ while the Imaam is giving the sermon then you have made a sinful utterance” (Agreed upon)

these two hadeeth indicate:

1. The permissibility of praying after the Imaam has come out to address the congregation

2. the permissibility of praying while the Imaam is giving the sermon

3. The permissiblity of speaking after the Imaam has come out to address the congregation, and even while he is upon the minbar, as long as he hasnt began to speak

14: “Aisha had a miscarriage for the Messenger – Sallallahu alaihi Was Salam – and she named it Abdullah, due to this she was given the kunya Umm Abdullah

Ruling: Baatil (False)

Collected by Al Khateeb in ‘Al Muwadih’ 1/321)

In it is Dawood ibn Muhabbar Imaamudh Dhahabee mentions concerning him in Dewaanudh Dhu’afaa (1/127) “He fabricates hadeeth upon trustworthy narrators”

It also opposes what is established concerning this and that is that Aisha said to the messenger – Sallallahu Alaihi Was Salam –

Oh Messenger of Allah Indeed all of your wives have Kunya’s except me!” So the Messenger said to her “Take a kunya from your son Abdullah (i.e Abdullah ibn Zubair, the son of her sister Asmaa), you are Umm Abdullah!”

(Collected by Imaam Ahmad in his Musnad 6/151 and declared ‘Saheeh by Shaikh Al Albaani in ‘Saheehah’ 1/256)

The Hadeeth establishes the permissibility of taking a kunya without having a child

15. Consult with them, then oppose them! (i.e. Women)

Ruling: No origin (attributed to the messenger – Sallallahu Alaihi was Salam)

The Statement does have origin attributed to Umar though in a narration collected by Ali ibn il Ja’d al Jauwhari (1/177/12) with a weak chain of narration that has two defects in it, 1.The unknown state of Hafs ibn Uthmaan Ibn Ubaidillah and 2. The presence of a weak narrator Yahyah ibnil Mutawakil Al Umari.

(See ‘Ad Dha’eefah’ of Shaikh Al Albaani (430))

Additionally its meaning is not correct since Allah has stated in the Qur’aan concerning parents weaning their child onto food prior to the end of two recommended years of suckling:

“..If they both decide on weaning, on mutual consent and after due consultation, then there is no sin upon them..”

(Saratul Baqarah Vs 233)

Likewise the Messenger of Allah – Sallallahu alaihi Was Salam consulted with his wife Umm Salamah in the incident of the pact of Hudaibiyah, when the Messenger and his companions were not able to complete their Umra, and they had to shave their heads early, so the messenger sought her advice concerning what to do, so she advised him Oh Messenger of Allah, you shave first and they will follow you. So the Messenger of Allah took her correct advice and did not oppose her.
