Sa’id ibn al Musayyab said: The time for salah would not come except that I would hear an adhan from the grave

 

إن سعيد بن المسيب قال و ما يأتي وقت صلاة إلا سمعت أذانا في القبر يعني قبر النبي

Sa’id ibn al Musayyab said, “At the time of every salah, I would hear an adhan from the grave, i.e. Nabi’s salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam grave.”

 

The innovators cite this as proof from the statements of Ibn Taymiyyah.[1]

There is no proof just by citing it since what is desired is a critical examination of the narration according to the theoretical standards of hadith recognised by the muhaddithin.

Furthermore, what connection does this have with what they desire to establish, i.e. seeking help from the person in the grave?

Ibn Sa’d has narrated the narration in al Tabaqat[2] from al Walid ibn ‘Ata’ from―’Abdul Hamid ibn Sulaiman. The problem of this narration lies with this last narrator.

 

‘Abdul Hamid ibn Sulaiman

  • Yahya ibn Ma’in commented, “He is worthless.”
  • Hafiz said in al Taqrib, “Da’i”[3]
  • Al Dhahabi relied on the statement of Abu Dawood from ‘Abdul Hamid that he was unreliable.[4]
  • Al Albani says, “No one has graded him reliable. Rather, there is unanimity on his duf (weakness).”[5]
