Mukhtasar Bukhari Reading

Bukhari Reading 1

Salam

The picture above is from the Mukhtasar Sahih al-Bukhari reading which was conducted in Ramadan in the town of High Wycombe (UK).  Shaykh Khalid Abd al-Karim al-Turkestani (on the left) who is a student of Shaykh Muhammad Yasin al-Fadani and Sayyid Muhammad bin Alawi al-Maliki amongst others traveled from Makka to teach the text, which was completed in around a week.

The above picture is of a catch up session in the students living area in the masjid,  which was conducted for Shaykh Amjad Mahmood from Birmingham on the right, as he was unable to make it to the first day of the reading, and therefore asked to read the hadith he had missed from the first session.

InshAllah additional pictures will follow soon.

Wassalam

Pattern Chain Narration of Tying the Turban

الشيخ عبد الله بن محمد الغازي المكي

Sayyidi Fadani

Salam

The following is the translation of the Musalsal hadith (pattern chained narration) which a number of students received upon the completion of the reading of Imam Ibn Abi Jamrah’s abridgement of Sahih al-Bukhari.  The reading took place in the latter part of the month of Ramadan 2013, spanning approximately 8 days and culminating at iftar time on the 27th night in the town of High Wycombe (UK).

The reading was supervised by Shaykh Khalid Abd al-Karim al-Turkestani, a Makkan born and raised scholar who is noted for his being a close student of the great Makkan hadith specialist, Shaykh Muhammad Yasin al-Fadani.

In the course of the 8 days we read a number of musalsal hadith narrations from the text Ithaf al-Ikhwan, however Shaykh Turkestani saved a number of special musalsal hadith narrations for the Khatam of the text, amongst them being the narration below.  InshAllah a more detailed review of the reading will be posted in the near future along with some pictures of the event.

Note 1:  The picture above is of Shaykh al-Fadani wearing a Turban along with a picture of Shaykh Abdullah Ghazi al-Makki from whom he received this musalsal, also wearing a Turban.

Note 2:  There is a video online of Shaykh Habib Ali Jifri transmitting a similar narration of the Turban via the Ba Alawi Shuyukh.  When Shaykh Turkestani was asked about this mentioned that the chain of the Ba Alawi Shuyukh in the video was for the wearing of the Khirqah (Sufi Cloak) as opposed to the Turban. Tthus these are two separate narrations which it would appear have become mixed up, and Allah Taala knows best.

♦♦

[Shaykh al-Fadani said:] This is the pattern chained hadith of tying the turban, where each of the narrators had his Shaykh tie his turban upon him and hang the tail behind him.  This is how the two Shaykhs transmitted it, in this form and wording, however it is not mentioned that the Messenger of Allah tied the turban upon Abu Musa al-Ashari.

In the version of al-Nasai in Amal al-Yaum wal-Laylah as cited by Hafiz Abu al-Shaykh in Kitab al-Libas, Ibn Adiyy, Al-Harith bin Abi Usamah in his Musnad, Abu Yaala and Hafiz Abul Hasan bin Jadid al-Alawi in his Musalsalat, the wording of which is:

 Muhammad bin Nasir al-Baghdadi narrated to us and tied his turban upon me and hung its tail behind me and said;

Abu Jafar al-Siraj al-Baghdadi narrated to us and tied his turban upon me and hung its tail behind me and said; [and so on to the end of the chain.]

 It was likewise narrated with this wording and form of transmission by Hafiz Abu Amr Salah al-Din Muhammad bin Ibrahim al-Salihi al-Maqdisi in his Musalsalat from Shams al-Dhahabi from Muslim bin Allan al-Qaysi from Yusuf bin Abd al-Mu’ti from Abi al-Tahir al-Silafi who mentioned it in a pattern chained form with wording of every one of its narrators “So and so tied his turban upon me and hung its end behind me.”

 It is from the most rarest of pattern chained narrations and it was not narrated by the people of knowledge except a few.
