    Weak Hadith Compilation

    Report bad ads?

    This thread is meant to collect weak ahadiith which are widespread among people. The section will point out the scholars who graded the hadith to be weak.

    Note a weak hadith does not mean that it is a false hadith. It means that there is a high possibility of an error in it.

    The Rightly Guided Caliphs narrated very few hadith out of fear of attributing something to the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) which he had not said.

    عرَف الصحابة منزلة السُّنَّة

    The Companions recognized the rank of the Sunnah

    واحتاطوا في رواية الحديث عن النبي -صلى الله عليه وسلم- خشية الوقوع في الخطأ

    And they were careful in narrating hadith from the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) because they feared making mistakes.

    وكان سيدنا عمر شديد الإنكار على مَن أكثر الرواية وكان يأمر بأن يُقِلوا من الرواية

    Umar used to severely criticize those who narrated too many narrations and would command them to narrate few narrations

    وقد كان المنهج العام عند الصحابة هو: التشدد في رواية الحديث

    And the manhaj of the masses of the Companions was severe strictness in regards to narrating hadith.

    والتزم جمهور الصحابة في الخلافة الراشدة منهج عمر بن الخطاب -رضي الله عنه- خشية أن يقعوا في الخطأ

    And the majority of the Companions adhered to the manhaj of Umar (Allaah is pleased with him), during the khilaafah al-raashidah, fearing that they would fall into (making) mistakes (if they narrated too many hadith)

    This was the way of the Companions (may Allaah be pleased with them) who spent their lives with the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam).

    There is no doubt that there were those Companions (may Allaah be pleased with them) who narrated a lot of hadith. However, they were always very careful.

    Today, we have gone so far of the path that we narrate everything we hear and do not even take 1 minute to explain the opinions of the scholars on a given hadith.

    We live dangerous lives.

    Those who can read Arabic should invest the time to read the following book

    It is important to inform your audience when you narrate a weak hadith. The rank and sanctity of the Messenger of Allaah (Sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) is unlike any other.

    The best of creation after the Prophets (peace be upon them all) were warned that if they raise their voice over his (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) all their deeds would go to waste.

    O you who have believed, do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet or be loud to him in speech like the loudness of some of you to others, lest your deeds become worthless while you perceive not.

    [Qur'aan 49:2]

    They were not allowed to call out to him (sallallaahu alayi wa sallam) as they did to one another.

    Do not make [your] calling of the Messenger among yourselves as the call of one of you to another. Already Allah knows those of you who slip away, concealed by others. So let those beware who dissent from the Prophet's order, lest fitnah strike them or a painful punishment.

    [Qur'aan 24:63]

    Lying on him (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) is not like lying on anyone else.

    Narrated al-Mughira:

    I heard the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) saying, "Ascribing false things to me is not like ascribing false things to anyone else. Whosoever tells a lie against me intentionally then surely let him occupy his seat in Hell-Fire." I heard the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) saying, "The deceased who is wailed over is tortured for that wailing."

    [Sahih al-Bukhaari]

    Imaam Muslim said,

    "It Is Sinful To Report Something From A Weak Narrator Without Making Its Weakness Clear: He says in the introduction of his ‘saheeh’: "But they made it incumbent upon themselves to reveal the weaknesses of hadeeth narrators and they gave fatwaa according to that – because of the great danger involved in it, since the narrations about matters of Deen convey allowance (Tahleel) and Prohibition (Tahreem), or orders and things which are forbidden, or encouragement and warning (targheeb wa tarheeb), so if the narrator is not truthful and trustworthy – then someone who narrates from him, knowing that, and does not make his weakness clear to others who do not know him, then he is sinful through that action, deceiving the common Muslims – since he cannot be sure that some of those who hear those narration’s will not use some or all of them, and perhaps they – or most of them – are lies which have no basis. And the authentic narrations form reliable narrators and people of precision are so plentiful that there is no need of the narration of someone who is not reliable"

    Introduction Sahih Muslim

    It only follows that one exercise extreme caution when narrating hadith and ensure that if they are weak one makes mention of it for the betterment of his own hereafter.

    Re: Weak Hadith Compilation

    Maybe Allah has decided to be more kind to us in bringing about this apparent justly positive shift in thinking - and hopefully there's a genuine will for the seeking of justice and truth in the above article.

    Respectful acknowledgement.

    Yes, we can only do our best to be as truthful and informative as possible when conveying beneficial information.
