أَنْبَأَنَا شَهْرَدَارُ بْنُ شِيْرَوَيْهِ الهَمَذَانِي إِجَازَةً، أَخْبَرَنَا أَبُو الحُسَيْنِ المُبَارَكُ بْنُ عَبْدِ الجَبَّارِ بْنِ أَحْمَدَ الصَيْرَفِيُّ – يُعْرَفُ بِابْنِ الطُّيُوْرِيِّ، أَخْبَرَنَا أَبُو طَاهِرٍ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَلِيِّ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ يُوْسُفَ المُقْرِئُ  – يُعْرَفُ بِابْنِ العَلَّافِ، أَخْبَرَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ حَمْدَانِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ القَطِيْعِيُّ، أَخْبَرَنَا أَبُو بَكْرٍ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ أَحْمَدَ القَاضِي البُوْرَانِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا الاحْتِيَاطِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا عَلِيُّ بْنُ جَمِيْلٍ، عَنْ جَرِيْرٍ، عَنْ لَيْثٍ، عَنْ مُجَاهِدٍ، عَنْ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، قَالَ   قال رسول الله : مَا فِي الجَنَّةِ شَجَرَةٌ إِلًا مَكْتُوْبٌ عَلَى كُلِّ وَرَقَةٍ: مُحَمَدٌ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ، أَبُو بَكْرٍ الصِّدِيْقُ، عُمَرُ الفَارُوْقُ، عُثْمَانُ ذُو النُّوْرَيْن

  1. Shahradar ibn Shirawayh narrated to us in commission—Abu al Hussain al Mubarak ibn ‘Abdul Jabbar ibn Ahmed al Sayrafi, who is known as Ibn al Tuyuri, narrated to us—Abu Tahir Muhammad ibn ‘Ali ibn Muhammad ibn Yusuf al Muqri’—who is known as Ibn al ‘Allaf narrated to us—Ahmed ibn Jafar ibn Hamdan ibn Malik al Qati’i narrated to us—Abu bakr Muhammad ibn Ahmed ibn al Qadi al Burani narrated to us—Al Ihtiyati narrated to us—Ali ibn Jamil narrated to us—from Jarir—from Layth—from Mujahid—from Ibn ‘Abbas:

The Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said, “There is not a tree in Jannat except there is on every leave of that tree the following: Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, Abu Bakr al Siddiq (the Truthful), ‘Umar al Faruq (one who distinguishes between truth and falsehood), and ‘Uthman Dhu al Nurayn (Possessor of two lights).”[1]

[1] The narration is Mawdu(fabricated). Al Qati’i narrates it in Zawa’id ‘ala Fada’il al Sahabah (664) from Muhammad ibn Ahmed al Burani. In the chain of transmission there is ‘Ali ibn Jamil, who is suspected of fabricating narrations. Ibn al Jawzi states in al Mawdu’at (1/251), “Abu Hatim ibn Hibban said, ‘This narration is fabricated and ‘Ali ibn Jamil use to fabricate narrations. It is not permissible to narrate from him in any condition.’” Ibn ‘Adi said, “The only person to narrate this narration from Jabir was is ‘Ali ibn Jamil. ‘Ali ibn Jamil narrates fabricated narrations from reputable scholars and alters chains of narration. This narration was also falsely attributed to him by a man known as Ma’roof ibn Abi Ma’roof and another also falsely attributed it to him. In the chain there is also Hassan ibn Abdul Rahman ibn Abad al Ihtiyati who was suspected of fabricating narrations.” al Kamil 8/187.
