25. The Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam sending Zaid ibn Arqam to give the glad tidings of Paradise to ‘Uthman after Abu Bakr and ‘Umar

 

وَبِهِ قَالَ القَطِيْعِيُّ: حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو بَكْرٍ البُوْرَانِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ حُمَيْدٍ،) حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الحَمِيْدِ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الأَعْلَى بْنُ أَبِي المُسَاوِرِ، عَنْ الشَّعْبِيِّ، عَنْ زَيْدِ بْنِ أَرْقَمَ، قَالَ: أَرْسَلَنِي النَّبِيّ إِلَى أَبِي بَكْرٍ –  يَعْنِي: الصِدَّيقَ، فَبَشَّرْتُهُ بِالجَنَّةِ، وَإلَى عُمَرَ، فَبَشَّرْتُهُ بِالجَنَّةِ، وَإِلَى عُثْمَانَ، فَبَشَّرْتُهُ بِالجَنَّة

  1. Al Qati’i states—Abu Bakr al Burani narrated to us—Muhammad ibn Humaid[1] narrated to us—’Abdul Humaid narrated to us—’Abdul A’la ibn Abi al Musawir narrated to us—from Zaid ibn Arqam:

The Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam sent me to Abu Bakr, al Siddiq, and I gave him glad tidings of Paradise. Then to ‘Umar and I gave him glad tidings of Paradise, and then to ‘Uthman and I gave him glad tidings of Paradise.[2]

[1] His full name is Muhammad ibn ‘Ubaid ibn Muhammad ibn Tha’labah  ibn Humaid al ‘Amiri.

[2] The isnad is Matruk (suspected of forgery). Al Qati’i narrates it in Zawa’id ‘ala Fada’il al Sahabah (664) from Muhammad ibn Ahmed al Burani with this chain. Al Bayhaqi narrates in Dala’il al Nubuwah (6/389) with another chain from ‘Abdul A’la ibn Abi al Musawir—from Ibrahim ibn Muhammad ibn Hatib—from ‘Abdul Rahman ibn Buhayr—from Zaid ibn Arqam. There is unanimity that ‘Abdul A’la ibn Abi al Musawir is daif (weak), and Yahya ibn Ma’in even accused him of lying. Tahdhib al Tahdhib 2/466.
