Alhumdulillah by the grace of God (Most High) we were able to complete a reading of Shaykh Abd al-Hayy al-Kattani’s summary of the Shamail al-Tirmidhi yesterday in London.
Please find below a couple of files related to the khatam:
The first is an audio message for the attendees of the khatam by Sharif Hamza al-Kattani who is a relative of the author and is well known and respected in scholarly circles.
The second is a musalsal hadith related to the chapter of the passing away of the Prophet (God bless him and give him peace) (which was covered yesterday) that I forgot to mention.
It is known as the musalsal hadith of crying, wherein each scholar who narrates the hadith sheds tears when narrating the hadith, just as the scholar they received the hadith from cried and so on and so forth all the way back to Sayyidah Fatimah (upon her be peace). The hadith relates to Sayyidah Fatimah’s statement to Sayyiduna Anas (God be pleased with him) regarding the Prophet (God bless him and give him peace) burial.
The narration is from Sayyiduna Anas, the beginning portion of which is, “Fatima said: O Anas, how were you able throw soil upon the Messenger of Allah (whilst burying him)….” at the end of the narration Sayyiduna Anas witnessed her crying.
Alhumdulillah we received this narration from one of our teachers who was moved by this hadith and shed tears at the time of narrating it, just as he had received it from his teachers whilst crying and thus maintaining the pattern. Please see scans below:
