The Praise of ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud radiya Llahu ‘anhu

 

This pure chain of praise continues with the praise of ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud as is mentioned in al Isti’ab of Ibn ‘Abdul Barr:

 

ان اقضى اهل المدينة علي بن ابي طالب

It is narrated from ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud, “Verily the most knowledgeable with regards to law in Madinah is ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib.”[1]

 

He also said:

 

نعم ترجمان القرآن ابن عباس، ولو ادرك اسناننا ما عاشره منا احد

What a great explainer of the Qur’an is ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas radiya Llahu ‘anhuma. If he reached our age, none of us would have been able to match him.[2]

 

NEXT⇒ The praise of ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar
