AUTHENTICITY OF HADITH O ALI DO NOT SLEEP UNTIL YOU DO FIVE THINGS.

AUTHENTICITY OF HADITH O ALI DO NOT SLEEP UNTIL YOU DO FIVE THINGS.

The Messenger of Allaah (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him) said ‘O ‘Ali, do not sleep until you have done five things: reciting the entire Qur’aan, giving four thousand dirhams in charity, visiting the Ka’bah, safeguarding your place in Paradise and reconciling with your opponent.’ ‘Ali said: How can I do that, O Messenger of Allaah? The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘Do you not know that if you recite Soorat al-Ikhlaas –Qul Huwa Allaahu Ahad – three times you have recited the entire Qur’aan? And if you recite al-Faatihah four times you have given four thousand dirhams in charity; and if you say There is no god except Allaah alone with no partner or associate; to Him be dominion and praise, He gives life and causes death, and He is Able to do all things, ten times, you have visited the Ka’bah; and if you say There is no strength and no power except with Allaah, the Most High, the Almighty, ten times, you have safeguarded your place in Paradise; and if you say I seek forgiveness from Allaah, besides Whom there is no other god, the Ever-Living, the Eternal), ten times you have reconciled with your opponent.’

RESPONSE :-

Praise be to Allaah the Lord of the Worlds, and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and all his family and companions.This hadeeth is not narrated in any of the reliable books of hadeeth; rather it is a fabricated hadeeth which is falsely attributed to the Messenger (blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him).

ABDULLAH IBN MUBARAK RIGHTLY SAID :-

Chains are in deen, if chain is not there then anyone can say anything.

(MUQADDAMAH SAHIH MUSLIM TARQEEM DARUS SALAM NO 32 )

SHAYKH IBN BAAZ SAID :-

A pamphlet which includes false ahaadeeth: This was answered by the Shaykh on 25/1/1414 AH: I have studied a pamphlet which says:

“The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘O ‘Ali, do not sleep until you have done five things: reciting the entire Qur’aan, giving four thousand dirhams in charity, visiting the Ka’bah, safeguarding your place in Paradise and reconciling with your opponent.’ ‘Ali said: How can I do that, O Messenger of Allaah? The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘Do you not know that if you recite Soorat al-Ikhlaas –Qul Huwa Allaahu Ahad – three times you have recited the entire Qur’aan? And if you recite al-Faatihah four times you have given four thousand dirhams in charity; and if you say There is no god except Allaah alone with no partner or associate; to Him be dominion and praise, He gives life and causes death, and He is Able to do all things, ten times, you have visited the Ka’bah; and if you say There is no strength and no power except with Allaah, the Most High, the Almighty, ten times, you have safeguarded your place in Paradise; and if you say I seek forgiveness from Allaah, besides Whom there is no other god, the Ever-Living, the Eternal), ten times you have reconciled with your opponent.’

What this pamphlet contains was not narrated in any of the reliable books of hadeeth, rather it is a mawdoo’ (fabricated) hadeeth which was falsely attributed to the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). Hence I warn my Muslim brothers against being deceived by this hadeeth and other fabricated reports, or printing and distributing them among the Muslims, because that is misguiding the common folk and confusing them, and telling lies about the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), who issued a stern warning to the one who does that deliberately, as he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said in the saheeh hadeeth:

Narrated ‘Ali: The Prophet(P.B.U.H) said, “Do not tell a lie against me for whoever tells a lie against me (intentionally) then he will surely enter the Hell-fire.”

SAHIH BUKHARI (Volume 1 Book #3, Hadith #106)

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Az-Zubair: I said to my father, ‘I do not hear from you any narration (Hadith) of Allah s Apostle as I hear (his narrations) from so and so?” Az-Zubair replied. l was always with him (the Prophet) and I heard him saying “Whoever tells a lie against me (intentionally) then (surely) let him occupy, his seat in Hell-fire.

SAHIH BUKHARI (Volume 1 Book #3, Hadith #107)

Narrated Anas: The fact which stops me from narrating a great number of Hadiths to you is that the Prophet said: “Whoever tells a lie against me intentionally, then (surely) let him occupy his seat in Hell-fire.”

SAHIH BUKHARI (Volume 1 Book #3, Hadith #108)

Narrated Al-Mughira: I heard the Prophet (P.B.U.H) saying, “Ascribing false things to me is not like ascribing false things to anyone else. Whosoever tells a lie against me intentionally then surely let him occupy his seat in Hell-Fire.”

SAHIH BUKHARI (Volume 2 Book #23, Hadith #378)

In the saheeh reports narrated from the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and compiled in the reliable books of Saheeh, Sunan and Musnads there is sufficient information and the one whom Allaah guides to goodness has no need to turn to the reports of liars and fabricators. I ask Allaah to bless us all with beneficial knowledge and to enable us to do good deeds and to avoid all the paths of misguidance and deviance, for He is All-Hearing and Ever Near. And peace be upon you and the mercy of Allaah and His Blessings.

(MAJMOO’ FATAAWA IBN BAAZ 26/328-330)

SHAYKH MUHAMMAD IBN SAALIH AL-‘UTHAYMEEN SAID :-

This hadeeth which says that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) gave this advice to ‘Ali ibn Abi Taalib (may Allaah be pleased with him) is a lie that was fabricated against the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). It is not correct to attribute it to the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), because “whoever narrates a hadeeth from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) which he thinks is false is himself one of the liars,” and “whoever tells lies about the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)deliberately, let him take his place in Hell.” But if it is mentioned in order to explain that it is fabricated and to warn people against it, this is something which will be rewarded. The point is that this hadeeth is a lie against the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and against ‘Ali ibn Abi Taalib.

(FATAAWA ISLAMIYYAH 4/111)

NOTE :-

I have noticed that some Islamic websites are narrating this Hadith which is incorrect. This is an example of why we should be very careful regarding what we read about Islam on the internet. We have an obligation to accurately cite and source every saying that is attributed to the Prophet (peace be upon him) so that we will not be guilty of ascribing something to him that he did not say.
