Hadith 31

 

تؤتى يوم القيامة بناقة من نوق الجنة فتركبها، وركبتك مع ركبتي، وفخذك مع فخدي، حتى تدخل الجنة.

A camel from the camels of Jannat will be brought on the Day of Resurrection and you will mount it. Your knee will be with my knee and your thigh will be with my thigh until you enter Jannat.

 

This hadith is narrated from Anas ibn Malik, Ibn ‘Abbas and Ibn ‘Umar radiya Llahu ‘anhum.

 

The Hadith of Anas ibn Malik

Al Qati’i narrates (and Ibn ‘Asakir in a similar manner) — ‘Ali ibn al Hassan al Qadi narrated to us — Abu Mas’ud Muhammad ibn ‘Ubaid ibn ‘Aqil narrated to us — ‘Abdul ‘Aziz ibn al Khattab narrated to us — ‘Isa narrated to us; he mentioned it  — from Dawood ibn Abi Hind — from Abu Jafar — from a man — from Anas ibn Malik who said, “The Messenger of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said to ‘Ali…”[1]

The chain of transmission is saqit (wholly unreliable). It contains the following defects:

  • ‘Isa ibn Muslim Abu Dawood al Kufi al A’ma is da’if (weak). In fact, al Daraqutni says he is matruk (suspected of forgery).
  • I could not ascertain who Abu Jafar
  • There is a majhul (unknown) narrator in the chain of transmission.
  • Abu Mas’ud Muhammad ibn ‘Ubaid ibn ‘Aqil could not be traced.
 

The Hadith of Ibn ‘Abbas

Al Khatib’s narration will appear later on in the book. In it, al ‘Abbas says, “And who, O Messenger of Allah?” He said, “And my brother, ‘Ali will be on a camel from the camels of Jannat; its reins are made of fresh pearls. On it is a litter made from rubies. Its hide is from white corals. There is a crown with seventy pillars on his head made from light. There is not a pillar except that it contains a ruby that lightens the path for the rider. He has on two green ornaments…”[2]

It will be soon pointed out that the hadith is mawdu’ (fabricated) and batil (false).

 

The Hadith of Ibn ‘Umar

Ibn ‘Asakir and al Tabarani narrate — from Muhammad ibn ‘Abdullah ibn Sulaiman al Khurasani — ‘Abdullah ibn Yahya narrates to us — Ibn al Mubarak narrated to us — from Ma’mar — from al Zuhri — from Salim — from Ibn ‘Umar.[3]

Al Dhahabi writes:

(The narration of) Muhammad ibn ‘Abdullah ibn Sulaiman al Khurasani — from ‘Abdullah ibn Nujayy — from Ibn al Mubarak is narrated by Bakr ibn Sahl al Dimyati. It is a fabricated narration.[4]

The correct name is Yahya, not Nujayy (as mentioned by al Dhahabi).

Ibn Hajar writes, “The signs of fabrication are clear on this narration.”[5]

Muaz ibn al Muthanna narrates in Ziyadat Musnad Musaddad (as mentioned in al Matalib al ‘Aliyah): ‘Abdullah ibn Muslim al Qurashi narrated to us — al Walid ibn Muslim narrated to us — from Ma’mar.”[6]

‘Abdullah ibn Muslim is (‘Abdullah ibn Muslim) ibn Rashid al Dimashqi. He fabricates hadith.[7]

Qadi al Maristan narrates this version of the hadith with another chain of transmission.[8] It contains the narrator Abu Bakr ibn Muhammad ibn al Hassan al Naqqash al Muqriʾ. Al Barqani says, “All the hadith of al Naqqash are munkar (unacceptable).”[9]

The status of ‘Abdullah ibn Muslim al Dimashqi has already been mentioned.

 

In short, the hadith is batil (false). All of its chains of transmission are wahiyah (feeble) and extremely weak.
