the humility of an Alim- Addendum

JazakAllah Khair to the brother who queried regarding the authenticity of the origins of At-Tahiyaat. And the others who contributed to that. I contacted my Ustaz regarding that.

And guess what? He thanked me for calling him and asking. He said that he did go on to correct it in later years or rather he added along  that this was the narration he had learnt but it comes from a riwaayat(narration) with an incomplete “sanad”(chain of narration). So he said that it was his fault and Apologized that he did not mention that when I was in class and some Ulama have declared that it should not be mentioned at all because of the importance of a strong sanad.

Point here. It is not a fabricated hadith. It falls under Dhaeef(weak) because there was a “technical fault” which if we had to go into the depths of what makes a sanad strong, in there would be almost literally no one  today except a handful who would qualify to narrate hadith in an authentic sanad. Especially those of a group that jump on their “everything is a weak hadith” trampoline. You know who you are.

A part of knowledge is “I don’t know”,humility and acceptance. May Allah make us like our salafus saliheen(pious predecessors) Ameen
