Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam called Fatimah and gave her Fadak


دعا رسول الله فاطمة فأعطاها فدك

Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam called Fatimah and gave her Fadak


The hadith is is Mawdu’. Al Dhahabi remarked, “This narration is batil.”


‘Attiyah al ‘Aufi

  • Al Haythami comments, “‘Attiyah al ‘Aufi is present therein who is da’if and matruk (suspected of forgery).”[1]
  • Al Dhahabi notes, “Ahmed, al Nasa’i and a group classified him da’if. Salim al Muradi said, ‘‘Attiyah had shia tendencies.’”[2]

Al Nawawi mentioned it in al Adhkar[3] from two chains. The first contains Wazi’ ibn Nafi’ al ‘Uqayli concerning whom al Nawawi said, “Unanimously da’if.” The second isnad contains ‘Attiyah al ‘Aufi regarding whom al Nawawi said, “‘Attiyah is da’if.”

Yes, this is befitting for al ‘Aufi. He is a mudallis (deceit). And he cannot be trusted. Although al Tirmidhi classified some of his ahadith as Hassan, al Tirmidhi is known to display laxity in classifying ahadith Hassan and sahih. His authentication should not be relied upon as al Dhahabi stated, and al Mundhiri apprised in al Targhib.


Al Fudayl ibn Mardhuq. He is also present in the isnad.

  • He was an extremist shia.
  • Al Nasa’i and Ibn Hibban labelled him da’if.
  • He would narrate fabrications from ‘Attiyah al ‘Aufi.[4]
  • Some have classified him reliable while others have classified him da’if.
  • He is among those, whom Muslim has been criticised for documenting their ahadith in his al Sahih, as pointed out by al Hakim.
  • Ibn Hibban said, “He would report fabrications from ‘Attiyah.”
  • Ibn Ma’in and al ‘Ijli criticised him for having hard-core shia ideologies.[5]
  • Hafiz says at the end, “Truthful. Guilty of wahm (errors). Criticised of being shia.”[6]
