Two Weak hadith in Tafsir Ibn kathir mentioned under Surah an-Nas

 

Imam Ibn Kathir (Rahimahullah) mentions this hadith under the Ayah 4 of Surah an-Nas:

‘From the evil of the whisperer

[Surah an-Nas verse 4]

 

[ Al-Hafidh Abu Ya’la Musily quoted a Hadith which reported the Prophet (Sallallau alaihi wasallam) as saying:

“Satan puts his hand on the heart of man. If he celebrates the remembrance of Allah he removes his hand and if he forgets Allah, Satan overcomes his heart fully. This is the ‘evil of the whisperer.’ “ ]

End quote

 

[ Musnad Abi Ya’la, 4301, Sanad is weak due to Narrator-Adi bin Abi Amaarah and Ziyad al-Nameeri. Majmo uz’ Zawaid-7/149]

 

 

And then, Imam ibn Kathir mentions another Hadith under Ayah 6 of Surah an-Nas:

Of jinn and men.’

[Surah an-Nas verse 6]

 

[ Abu Dharr reported that once he went to the mosque and sat with the Prophet. He asked me, “Did you pray?” When I said no, he said, “Offer two rak’ah.” When I again sat after finishing the prayer, he said, “Abu Dharr, seek refuge against the devils among men and jinn.” I asked, “Are there devils among men also?” He said, “Yes.” I asked him, “O Messenger of Allah, which is the greatest verse in the Qur’an?” He said, “The Verse of the Throne – (2:255).”]

[ Sunan an-Nasai Vol. 6, Book 50, Hadith 5509. This hadith also recorded by Imam Ahmed, Abu Hatim and others]

[ Sanad is weak due to Narrator Abu Amr ad-Dimashqi and AbdurRahman bin Abdullah al Mas’oodi, (Taqreeb) ]

    Wa Alaykum Assalam Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barkatahu brother in Islam.

    [[[[so what dus this indicate? That ibn Kathir made a mistake? What do other scholars of ahle sunnah say in this regards?]]]]

    Brother, Hafidh ibn Kathir (Rahimahullah) collected this Hadith in his tafsir to explain the Surah. Most of the Hadith in Tafsir ibn Kathir are Authentic while some are not. It doesn’t mean that Imam Ibn Kathir made mistake by Mentioning weak hadith in his tafsir. He might be unaware of the Grading of Hadith whether it is Saheeh or Hasan or weak.

    [[[Also in what condition can we act upon a weak hadith.]]]

    Or maybe weak hadith can be accepted, at times. Depends on the hadith methodology.
