One Hundred Weak or Fabricated Traditions (attributed to the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم)


Compiled by Shaykh Ihsan Al-‘Utaibi (May Allah preserve him)

1 – ((Whosoever Worship/Prayer does not prohibit him from the excessive and the disapproved, has no increase from Allah except of distance.)) and in another narration: ((then he has not Worshiped/Prayed)). Al-Dhahabi said: Ibn Al-Junaid said: a lie and falsehood. And Al-Hafiz Al-Iraqi said: its chain is loose/soft (Layin), and Al-Albani said: void and false (Baatil) from both its chain (Sanad) and its text (Matn). “Meezaan Al-I’tidaal” (3/293), “Takhreej Al-Ihyaa” (1/143), “Al-Silsilah Al-Da’eefa” (2/985)

2 – ((Talking in the mosque devours good works as cattle devour grass)), and in another narration: ((Talking in the mosque devours good works as fire devour wood))Al-Hafiz Al-Iraqi said: I found no base for it. Abdulwahab ibn Taqi Al-din Al-Subki said: I found no chain for it, and Al-Albani said: It is baseless (La Asla Lah). “Takhreej Al-Ihyaa” (1/136), “Tabaqaat Al-Shafi’ya” by Al-Subki (4/145), “Al-Da’eefa” (4)

3 – ((Conduct yourself in this world, as if you are here to stay forever; prepare for eternity as if you have to die tomorrow))Al-Albani said: Cannot be traced directly to the Prophet (La Yasih Marfu’) i.e. not authentic of the prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him). “Al-Da’eefa” (8)

4 – ((I am the grandfather [forefather] of every pious person)). Al-Suyuti said: I do not know it, and Al-Albani said: It is baseless (La Asla Lah). “Al-H’awi” by Al-Suyuti (2/89), “Al-Da’eefa” (9)

5 – ((I was only sent as a teacher))Al-Iraqi said: its chain is weak, and Al-Albani said: Weak (Da’eef). “Takhreej Al-Ihyaa” (1/11), “Al-Da’eefa” (11)

6 – ((Allah Almighty and Exalted told the lower world, Serve the one who serves Me and tire the one who serves you))Al-Albani said: Fabricated (Mawdu’). “Tanzeeh Al-Sharee’a” by Al-Kinani (2/303), “Al-Fawaid Al-Majmoo’a” by Al-Shawkani (712), “Al-Da’eefa” (12)

7 – ((Beware of the green dung (khadra’ al-diman). It was asked: What is the green dung? He said: The beautiful woman with an evil origin))Al-Iraqi said: Weak, and it was also weakened by ibn Al-Mulqin. Al-Albani said: Very Weak. “Takhreej Al-Ihyaa” (2/42), “Al-Da’eefa” (14)

8 – ((There are two groups among my people who when they become righteous the populace becomes righteous, and when they become corrupt the populace becomes corrupt: these are the rulers and the jurisprudents)), and in another narration: ((the rulers and the scholars))Imam Ahmad said: in one of its narrators is a liar who fabricates traditions. Ibn Ma’een and Al-Darqutni said something similar. Al-Albani said: Fabricated. “Takhreej Al-Ihyaa” (1/6), “Al-Da’eefa” (16)

9 – ((Seek to draw closer to Allah by virtue of my status (by my Jaah), for my status (my Jaah) with Allah is great))Baseless; “Iqtidaa’ al-Siraat al-Mustaqeem” by Ibn Taymiyah (2/415), and “al-Da’eefa” (22)

10 – ((The one who leaves his house for prayer and then says: O Allah, I ask thee by the right of those who ask you and I beseech thee by the right of those who walk this path unto thee, as my going forth bespeak not of levity, pride nor vainglory, nor is done for the sake of repute. I have gone forth solely in the warding off your anger and for the seeking of your pleasure. I ask you, therefore, to grant me refuge from hell fire and to forgive me my sins. For no one forgive sins but yourself.” Allah will look kindly upon him and seventy thousand angels will seek his forgiveness)). It is weakened by Al-Munziri, and Al-Busairi said: its chain is composed of a succession of weak narrators (Musalsal bi Al-Du’afa), and Al-Albani said: Weak. “Al-Targheeb wa Al-Tarheeb” by Al-Munziri (3/272), Sunan Ibn Majah (1/256)


About Umm Omar

I've been a Muslimah for 4 years now الحمد لله and I can say for sure that Islam changed many things in my life including my overall character and behaviour. I'm not a scholar by far, just a simple seeker of knowledge enjoying reading beneficial books and articles about my religion, the best book among all being the Qur'an, you simply can find all the answer you need if you just read it carefully and find all the explanations you need from the Sunnah of Rasoul ALLAH صلى الله عليه و سلم, i.e. ahadith without which we wouldn't be able to understand many things. I hope you'll all enjoy my blog and learn something beneficial for you. I'm quite new to blogging, so I hope you'll be patient till i learn how to make my blog look better and add more posts with time in sha' ALLAH. In conclusion, for all those who at times lose hope and feel down, one of my most favourite ayahs from the Qur'an from Surah Al Zumar: 39:53. Say: "O 'Ibâdî (My slaves) who have transgressed against themselves (by committing evil deeds and sins)! Despair not of the Mercy of Allâh, verily Allâh forgives all sins. Truly, He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. Do not forget the remembrance of Allâh, Verily, in the remembrance of Allâh do hearts find rest!!!
