Whoever passes the night and is not concerned with the affairs of the Muslims is not from them

 

من بات و لم يهتم بأمور المسلمين فليس منهم

Whoever passes the night and is not concerned with the affairs of the Muslims is not from them.

 

Al Dhahabi comments, “I consider it mawdu’.”[1]

Ibn al Jawzi listed it in al Mawdu’at. Al Suyuti rectified him in al La’ali asserting that it has shawahid which he mentioned.

  1. From the chain of Aban ibn Abi ‘Ayyash.

 

Aban ibn Abi ‘Ayyash

  • Shu’bah and others have labelled him a liar.

 

  1. From ‘Abdullah ibn Salamah who is da’if.

 

‘Abdullah ibn Salamah

  • Al Daraqutni declared him da’if while Abu Nuaim labelled him matruk.

 

There are other shawahid which al Tabarani narrated. From Yazid ibn Rabi’ah al Rahbi who is matruk. Al Hakim narrates it[2] from Ishaq ibn Bishr and Muqatil ibn Sulaiman, both are unreliable.[3]
