This section comprises 217 ahadith, most of which are mawdu’ (fabricated).
They are as follows:
أنا دعوة أبي إبراهيم. قلنا: يا رسول الله وكيف صرت دعوة أبيك إبراهيم؟ قال: أوحى الله تعالى إلى إبراهيم: إِنِّي جَاعِلُكَ لِلنَّاسِ إِمَامٗاۖ ]البقرة[124 : فاستخف إبراهيم الفرح، قال: يا رب! ومن ذريتي أئمة مثلي! فأوحى الله إليه أن: يا إبراهيم إني لا أعطيك عهد ا لا أفي لك به. قال: يا رب ما العهد الذي لا تفي لي به؟ قال: لا أعطيك لظالم من ذريتك، قال إبراهيم عندها: وَٱجۡنُبۡنِي وَبَنِيَّ أَن نَّعۡبُدَ ٱلۡأَصۡنَامَ ٣٥ رَبِّ إِنَّهُنَّ أَضۡلَلۡنَ كَثِيرٗا مِّنَ ٱلنَّاسِۖ ]إبراهيم: 35–[36.
“I am the result of my father’s, Ibrahim’s, supplication.”
We said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, and how did you become the result of your father’s, Ibrahim’s, supplication?’
He said: ‘Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala revealed to Ibrahim: ‘[Allah] said, ‘Indeed, I will make you a leader for the people.’ (al Baqarah: 124). Happiness enveloped Ibrahim and he said: ‘My Lord, and of my descendants, leaders like me! So Allah revealed: ‘O Ibrahim, surely I would not promise you something that I would not fulfill.’ Ibrahim said: ‘My Lord, what is the promise that You would fulfill not break for me? He subhanahu wa ta ‘ala said: ‘I will not give you such a leader from your descendants who is a zalim (oppressor).’ At that moment, Ibrahim recited (the verses): ‘…and keep me and my sons away from worshipping idols. My Lord, indeed they have led astray many among the people.’(Ibrahim 35-36).
Nabi salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: ‘The supplication concluded with me and with ‘Ali; none of us ever prostrated to an idol and so (eventually) Allah made me a Nabi and He made ‘Ali a wasi.”
Ibn al Maghazili narrates — Abu Muhammad al Hassan ibn Ahmed ibn Musa al Ghandajani informed us — Abu al Fath Hilal ibn Muhammad al Haffar — Ismail ibn ‘Ali ibn Razin narrated to us — my father and Ishaq ibn Ibrahim narrated to me — ‘Abdul Razzaq narrated to us — my father narrated to me — from Minaʾ the mawla (client) of ‘Abdul Rahman ibn ‘Awf — from ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud who said: ‘The Messenger of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said…’”
This hadith is munkar (unacceptable).
Minaʾ the mawla (client) of ‘Abdul Rahman ibn ‘Awf is matruk (suspected of forgery). In fact, Abu Hatim deemed him a kadhdhab (liar).
Al Dhahabi says: “Ismail ibn ‘Ali al Khuza’i is a teacher of Hilal al Haffar. Al Khatib says: ‘He is not a thiqah (reliable).’ He is suspected (of lying); he brings forth awabid (unusual reports).”
Ibn Taymiyyah says: “This hadith is a fabrication and a lie according to the consensus of hadith scholars.”
