The sibaq of the ummahs are three

 

سباق الأمم ثلاثة السابق ثلاثة فالسابق إلى موسى يوشع بن نون فالسابق إلى عيسى صاحب يس و إلى محمد صلى الله عليه و سلم علي بن أبي طالب

The forerunners of the nations are three: The forerunner of Musa was Yusha’ ibn Nun, the forerunner to ‘Isa was the companion of Yasin, and to Muhammad salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam was ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib.

 

Hafiz says, “Al Tha’labi documented it. ‘Amr ibn Jam’ is present therein and he is matruk. Al ‘Uqayli, al Tabarani, and Ibn Mardawayh have narrated it from Ibn ‘Abbas.”[1]
