O people, I wished that this man could have sufficed me in it, and not me

 

يا أيها الناس و لوددت أن هذا كفانيه غيري و لئن أخذتموني بسنة نبيكم صلى الله عليه و سلم ما أطيقها إن كان معصوما من الشيطان و إن كان لينزل عليه الوحي من السماء

O people, I wished that this man could have sufficed me in it, and not me. If you charge me with the Sunnah of your Nabi salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, I will not be able to for he was protected from shaitan and revelation from the sky was descending upon him.

 

Its isnad is da’if. Ahmed narrated it.[1]

 

‘Isa ibn al Musayyab al Bajali is present in the isnad as noted by al Haythami.[2]

  • Al Nasa’i labelled him da’if.[3]
  • Ibn Abi Hatim said, “Da’if. Worthless.”[4]
  • Al Daraqutni has opposing views on him. He listed him in al Du’afa’ wa al Matrukun[5] but stated in al Sunan, “Salih al hadith (sound in hadith).”[6]
