27. Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala allowing ‘Uthman to intercede on the Day of Qiyamah equal to the number of people from Rabi’ah and Mudar

 

وَبِهِ قَالَ القَطِيْعِيُّ: حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو بَكْرٍ البُوْرَانِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَزِيْدَ، حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى بْنُ يَمانٍ، عَنْ الحَسَنِ، قَالَ: قَالَ النبي : يَشْفَعُ عُثْمَانُ بْنُ عَفَّانَ يَوْمَ القِيَامَةِ فِي مِثْلِ رَبِيعَةَ ومُضَر

  1. Al Qati’i states—Abu Bakr al Burani narrated to us—Muhammad ibn Yazid narrated to us—Yahya ibn Yaman narrated to us—from Hassan:

The Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said, “‘Uthman will intercede on the Day of Judgement on behalf of people equal in number to that of Rabi’ah and Mudar.”[1]

[1] The isnad is Da’if but it is authentic as Mawquf (when a Tabi’i narrates directly from the Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) to Hassan al Basri. Al Qati’i narrates in Zawa’id Fada’il al Sahabah (866) from Muhammad ibn Ahmed al Burani with this chain. In this chain there is Muhammad ibn Yazid Abu Hisham al Rifa’i and Yahya ibn Yaman, who are both da’if. The narration is authentically attributed to Hassan but not to the Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam as stated in Kitab al Zuhd of Imam Ahmed who narrates from ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amir ibn al ‘Adawi—from Hamad ibn Salamah—from Yunus ibn ‘Ubaid—from Hassan (al Basri) that the Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said, “By the one who has my soul in his hand, people will be granted freedom from hell fire with the intercession of a man from my nation. With his intercession a number equal to that of Rabi’ah and Mudar will be saved.” Hassan said, “They thought this was either ‘Uthman ibn ‘Affan or Uways al Qarni.” He also narrates it from al Hussain, who is Ibn Muhammad ibn Bihram— from Hammad ibn Salamah with this chain (2047).
