Clarifying a hadith

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by DarulIftaBirmingham

One such hadith which I had a doubt once and got the sanad checked is about the story of “Adam asking allah’s forgiveness with the hawala of rasul allah [s], as Adam saw Muhammad Rasul Allah on Allah’s throne’. This is in the level from top 7 out of a ranking of 10 in terms of authenticity, because some links in between are missing. The sanad is incomplete.

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.


There is a hadith narrated by Saaiduna Umar Ibn Khattab Radiallahu Anhu that Saaiduna Adam Alyhis Salam asked Allah (SWA) through the blessings (tawassul) of the Prophet Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam because Adam Alayhis Salam saw Prophet Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam’s name on the Arsh.

This hadith can be found in Imam Baihaqi’s “Dalaail Nubuwut”, Mustadrak Hakim and Tabraani.
