Is this Hadith about Jibra'eel (AS) Saheeh??


One day Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) asked Jibril, “Have you ever traveled at full speed?”

Jibril said, “Yes, on four occasions.”

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) asked, “What were the four occasions?”

Jibril said, “First time was when Ibrahim (‘alayhis salam) was placed in Nimrud’s fire. At the time I was near the Arsh. Allah ordered me to cool the fire. I left the Arsh and descended seven heavens in time.

Second time was when Ibrahim (‘alayhis salam) was about to sacrifice his son Isma’il (‘alayhis salam) in Mina. Allah ordered me to replace his son with a lamb, before Ibrahim (‘alayhis salam) struck with his knife.

Third time was when, the brothers of Yusuf (‘alayhis salam) threw him into the well. Allah ordered me to save Yusuf (‘alayhis salam), I rushed and placed my wing underneath Yusuf (‘alayhis salam) before he reached the bottom of the well.

And the final time was when you, O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam), injured your tooth at the battle of Uhud. Allah Ta’ala ordered me to stop your blood reaching the ground, otherwise no plant or tree would grow, till the end of the world. Hearing this, I rushed and saved your blood with my wings.”Is this sahih?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

سنن الترمذي ت بشار 5/ 49

حدثنا سفيان بن وكيع، قال: حدثنا سويد بن عمرو الكلبي، قال: حدثنا أبو عوانة، عن عبد الأعلى، عن سعيد بن جبير، عن ابن عباس، عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم، قال: اتقوا الحديث عني إلا ما علمتم، فمن كذب علي متعمدا فليتبوأ مقعده من النار، ومن قال في القرآن برأيه فليتبوأ مقعده من النار.

هذا حديث حسن


روح البيان 7/ 475

وفى الخبر سأل نبينا عليه السلام جبريل هل أصابك مشقة وتعب فى نزولك من السماء قال نعم فى اربعة مواضع. الاول حين القى ابراهيم فى النار كنت تحت العرش قال الله تعالى أدرك عبدى فادركته وقلت له هل لك من حاجة فقال اما إليك فلا. والثاني حين وضع ابراهيم السكين على حلق إسماعيل كنت تحت العرش قال الله تعالى أدرك عبدى فادركته طرفة عين فقلبت السكين. والثالث حين شبحك الكفار وكسروا رباعيتك يوم أحد قال الله تعالى أدرك دم حبيبى فانه لو سقط من دمه على الأرض قطرة ما أخرجت منها نباتا ولا شجرا فقبضت دمك بكفى ثم رميته فى الهواء. والرابع حين القى يوسف فى الجب قال الله تعالى أدرك عبدى فادركته قبل ان وصل الى قعر الجب وأخرجت حجرا من أسفل البئر فاجلسته عليه
