Muawiyah would wear silk and leopard skins would be spread as carpets in his house

 

إن معاوية كان يلبس الحرير و يفترش في بيته جلود النمور و إن المقدام وبخه على ذلك فقال له معاوية قد علمت أني لن أنجو منك

Muawiyah would wear silk and leopard skins would be spread as carpets in his house. Miqdam censured him for this so Muawiyah told him, “I knew that I would not be saved from you.”

 

The narration is da’if. Baqiyyah appears in the isnad who is a mudallis and reported the narration with ‘an. And it is said:

 

أحاديث بقية ليست نقية فكن منها على تقية

The ahadith of Baqiyyah are not pure. So be wary of them.

 

His ahadith are accepted when protected from the evil of his tadlis. This narration appears in Sunan Abi Dawood[1] but it is da’if, hence using it as proof is incorrect. Moreover, Baqiyyah mentioned tahdith explicitly as appears in Musnad Ahmed[2], however this fabricated incident against Muawiyah does not appear therein.
