Title: Hadith or Information


Is the following hadith authentic:


Abu Nuʻaym Al-Asbahaani in his book Sifat Al-Jannah. It reads: Ibn ʻAbbaas  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him said, “The people of Paradise shall be beardless, except for Moosa ibn ʻImraan (Moses), whose beard reaches down to his navel, and they will all bear their (worldly) names, except for Aadam, who shall be nicknamed Abu Muhammad.


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

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

Hereunder is the Hadith with three chains of narrators.


1)     بَاب انْفِرَاد مُوسَى فِي الْجَنَّة باللحية وآدَم بالكنية أَنبأَنَا أَبُو مَنْصُور عبد الرحمن بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ أَنْبَأَنَا أَبُو بَكْرٍ أَحْمَدُ بْنُ عَلِيٍّ أَنْبَأَنَا الأَزْهَرِيُّ أَنبأَنَا المعافا بْنُ زَكَرِيَّا حَدَّثَنَا الْحُسَيْنُ بْنُ إِسْمَاعِيلَ حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو الْوَلِيدِ الْحَرَّانِيُّ وهب بن حَفْص حَدثنَا عبد الملك بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ الْجَدِّيُّ حَدَّثَنَا حَمَّادُ بْنُ سَلَمَةَ عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ دِينَارٍ عَنْ جَابِرٍ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ: " لَيْسَ أَحَدٌ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ إِلا يُدْعَى بِاسْمِهِ، إِلا آدَمَ فَإِنَّهُ يُكَنَّى أَبَا مُحَمَّدٍ، وَلَيْسَ أَحَدٌ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ إِلا وَهُمْ جُرْدٌ، إِلا مُوسَى بْنَ عِمْرَانَ فَإِنَّ لِحْيَتَهُ تَبْلُغُ سُرَّتَهُ ".


2)     طَرِيق ثَانِي: أَنْبَأَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عبد الملك أَنْبَأَنَا ابْنُ مَسْعَدَةَ أَنْبَأَنَا حَمْزَةُ بْنُ يُوسُفَ أَنْبَأَنَا ابْنُ عَدِيٍّ حَدَّثَنَا إِسْحَاقُ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ الْعزِيُّ حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ أَبِي السَّرِيِّ حَدَّثَنَا شَيْخُ بْنُ أَبِي خَالِدٍ الْبَصْرِيُّ حَدَّثَنَا حَمَّادُ بْنُ سَلَمَةَ عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ دِينَارٍ عَنْ جَابِرٍ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: " يُدْعَى النَّاس بِأَسْمَائِهِمْ يَوْم الْقِيَامَة،

             لا آدَمَ فَإِنَّهُ يُكَنَّى أَبَا مُحَمَّدٍ، وَأَهْلُ الْجَنَّةِ جُرْدٌ، إِلا مُوسَى بْنَ عِمْرَانَ فَإِنَّ لِحْيَتَهُ تَضْرِبُ إِلَى سُرَّتِهِ".


3)      طَرِيق ثَالِث: أَنْبَأَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ أَبِي طَاهِرٍ الْبَزَّازُ أَنْبَأَنَا أَبُو مَنْصُورٍ مُحَمَّدُ بن أَحْمد ابْن الْحُسَيْنِ حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو أَحْمَدَ الْفَرْضِيُّ حَدَّثَنَا جَعْفَرُ الْخَوَّاصُ حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ مَسْرُوقٍ حَدَّثَنَا الْحَسَنُ بْنُ أَبِي الْحَسَنِ حَدَّثَنَا جَرِيرٌ حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ أَبِي السَّرِيُّ حَدَّثَنَا شَيْخُ ابْن أَبِي خَالِدٍ حَدَّثَنَا حَمَّادُ بْنُ سَلَمَةَ عَنْ عَمْرِو بْنِ دِينَارٍ عَن جَابر بن عبد الله قَالَ قَالَ رَسُول الله صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: " أَهْلُ الْجَنَّةِ جُرْدٌ مُرْدٌ كُلُّهُمْ إِلا مُوسَى بْنَ عِمْرَانَ فَإِنَّ لَهُ لِحْيَةً إِلَى سُرَّتِهِ ".


أَمَّا الطَّرِيقُ الأَوَّل فَفِيهِ وهب بْن حَفْص[1].


In the first chain of narrators, there is Wahb bin Hafs who is condemned by the following Muhadditheen.

قَالَ أَبُو عرُوبَة: هُوَ كَذَّاب يَضَعُ الْحَدِيثَ يَكْذِبُ كَذِبًا فَاحِشًا.

Sheikh Abu A’rubah declares Wahb bin Hafs a fabricator who is well known to fabricate Ahadith.



وَقَالَ الدَّارقطني: يضع الْحَدِيث.[2]

Sheikh Dar Alqutni said that he fabricates Hadith.


وَأَمَّا الثَّانِي وَالثَّالِث فَفِيهِ شيخ بْن أَبِي خَالِد.



In chain two and three there is Hammaad bin Salamah who is condemned by the following Muhadditheen.

قَالَ ابْنُ عَدِيٍّ: حَدَّثَ عَنْ حَمَّادِ بْنِ سَلَمَةَ بِأَحَادِيثَ مَنَاكِيرَ بَوَاطِيلُ.


Ibn Adi says that Khaalid’s narration from Hammaad are Munkar.

(When a narration goes against another authentic hadith and is reported by a weak narrator, it is known as Munkar.)


وَقَالَ ابْن حبَان: هَذَا مَوْضُوعٌ عَلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، وَشَيخ بْن أَبِي خَالِد كَانَ يرْوى عَنِ الثقاة الْمُعْضَلاتِ لَا يُحْتَجُّ بِهِ بِحَالٍ،


Ibn Hibbaan says that this is a complete fabrication to Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam and Sheik Ibin Abi Khaalid is known to relate from people who narrate Ahadith with broken chains, therefore he cannot be taken into consideration.
