"Salaat-ut-Tasbeeh has been narrated from more than ten companions radhiallaahu 'anhum ajma'een. And here we will just mention three of its chains of narration.
, the hadeeth of 'Abdullaah ibn 'Abbas radhiallaahu 'anhu
It is narrated from him in many chains, the most important if which are:
What is narrated by Aboo Dawood no.12979 (Eng Trans Vol 1/1292) and ibn Maajah no.1387 and al-Haakim 1/308 and others, by the chain of narration of Musaa ibn 'Abdul 'Azeez, from al-Haakim ibn Abbaan, from 'Iqrimas, from ibn 'Abbaas and this chain of narration is hasan
As for Musa ibn 'Azeez then Ibn Ma'een declared him to be trustworthy and an-Nasaa'ee said, 'There is nothing wrong with him.' He has been spoken (badly) about, but without any proof.
While al-Hakim ibn Abbaan: The majority of scholars have agreed upon him being trustworthy, from amongst them the outstanding Imaams: ibn Ma'een and ibn al-Madeenee and Ahmad ibn Hanbal and they in themselves are enough for you.
'Iqrimah: He is the famous, trustworthy, well-known Tabi'ee and he was the slave of ibn 'Abbaas.
, the hadeeth of 'Abdullaah ibn 'Amr ibn al-'Aas radhiallaahu 'anhu
of 'Abdullaah ibn 'Amr has been reported through different narrations all having Abee al-Jowzaa'ee within the chain.
The first is from Muslim ibn Ibraaheem, from al-Mustamir ibn ar-Rayyaan, from Abee Jowzaa'ee, from 'Abdullaah ibn 'Amr, this is collected by Aboo Dawood (2/30) (Eng Trans Vol 1/1293). Its narrators are all by consensus trustworthy and just.
The second is from Muhammad ibn Sufyaan, from Hibbaan ibn Hilaal from Mahdi ibn Maymoon from 'Amr ibn Maalik from Abii Jowzaa'ee, from 'Abdullaah ibn 'Umar to the Prophet (SAW).
This is collected by Aboo Dawood (2/30) (Eng Trans Vol 1/1293). and al-Baihaqee (3/25). The narrators in this chain of narration are all thiqaat
(trustworthy) except for Muhammad ibn Sufyaan who is a truthful person (sadooq
, the hadeeth of Ansaaree.
This is collected by Aboo Dawood (1299) (Eng Trans Vol 1/1294) and also by al-Baihaqee (3/25).
Aboo Tawbah said: Muhammad ibn Muhaajir narrated to us, who said that 'Urwah ibn Raweem said that al-Ansaaree narrated to me - and hen he mentions the hadeeth
The narrators in this chain of narrators are the narrators used by al-Bukhaaree and Muslim with the exception of 'Urwah, who is trustworthy. And al-Ansaaree is a companion. Therefore, this chain is saheeh
(authentic and two narrations which precede it from 'Abdullaah ibn 'Amr, then one is saheeh
(authentic) and the other is hasan
The aforementioned hadeeth of ibn 'Abbaas is at its very least, hasan
So amongst those who performed it; Aboo al-Jowzaa'ee and he is a well-known tabi'ee
and worshipper, the great Imaam and mujaahid
'Abdullah ibn al-Mubaarak and other than them.
Amongst those who declared it saheeh or hasan are; Ahmad ibn Hanbal, Aboo Dawood, al-Haakim, Aboo Musaa al-Madeenee, al-Khateeb al-Baghdaadee, ibn as-Salaah, al-Baghawee, al-Mundhiri, an-Nawaawee in Tahdheeb al-Asmaa wal-Lughaat
, ibn Hajr al-''asqalaanee, as-suyootee and lastly, the Muhaddith
of our time Shaykh al-Albaanee - may Allaah grant them all forgiveness. - Shaykh 'Adnaan Aali 'Uroor:
'The Three Abandoned Prayers' in the chapter 'Salaat-ut-Tasbeeh
The book also relates that ibn Uthaymin (rahimahullah) said that this is strange from a Shar'i point of view, since 'Ibadah is good so it is for every time and place and it is reported that this act of 'Ibadah can be prayed once in a lifetime even (or once every day, or once every week, or once every month). Since nothing in the Shari'ah is similar to this, he questions this type of an act of 'Ibadah.
Note: this was a rough summary of the text in the Bosnian language, and not from the original Arabic. I hesitated to relate something from it, since I really don't know a lot about this issue and I haven't really got an opinion about this (also, I'm scared to misquote the scholars or something like that). However, since these are the opinions of two great scholars (rahimahumullah), and since you were looking for information, I felt that I should share the information I had.
I'd appreciate it if you could share the information you have about this insha'Allah, so we can hear more arguments from other scholars insha'Allah.
JazakAllah khayr. I would appreciate it if you qoutes shaykh Uthaymeen's (rahimullah) view point on this. I love that scholar, and I have alot of respect for him. But to be honest this has me baffled.
