Salam

We were honoured in the UK for this year’s Ramadan to host Shaykh Khalid Turkestani from Makkah, a student of Shaykh Muhammad Yasin al-Fadani and Sayyid Muhammad bin Alawi al-Maliki amongst others.  During his stay of 9 days we completed a reading of Imam Ibn Abi Jamrah’s abridgement of Bukhari as well as reading a number of musalsal hadith from the collection Ithaf al-Ikhwan.  A quick translation of the Musalsal hadith on brotherhood which was narrated at the Mukhtasar Bukhari Khatam on Sunday 4th August 2013 is presented below.  Alhumdulilah this is a rare musalsal narration not commonly found with scholars but transmitted by Shaykh al-Fadani to his students at special gatherings.

It was narrated to me by Jami’ bin Umayr al-Taymi who said to me, “You are my brother in this world and the next” and said:

On the authority of Ibn Umar (Allah be pleased with them both) who said: The Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) established ties of brotherhood between his companions.  Ali (Allah be pleased with him) came with tears in his eyes and said, “O Messenger of Allah, you have established the ties of brotherhood between your companions but not established this tie between me and anyone else”.  The Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) said: “You are my brother in this world and the next”.

Ibn Umar said:  Ali bin Abi Talib (Allah ennoble his countenance) said to me: “You are my brother in this world and the next”.

Jami’ Ibn Umayr al-Taymi in turn said: Ibn Umar said to me, “You are my brother in this world and the next.”

I [Shaykh al-Fadani] say:  This hadith is Hasan Gharib, containing a pattern chain of brotherhood where each of the narrators says “So and so narrated to me and said to me: You are my brother in this world and the next,”  Some of the people of knowledge have questioned the authenticity of this pattern as al-Tirmidhi narrated it in his Jami’ with this chain without the pattern.  However this does not necessitate Tirmidhi not narrating it with the pattern chain as on some occasions he may have done so along with it being one chain of transmission.
