Compare my Hadith to the Book of Allah. If [my Hadith] concurs with the Quran then that Hadith is from me and I have said it


Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith with the words you have cited.

(Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 1429)

‘Allamah Haythami has declared this chain very weak.

(Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 1 pg. 170)

The Honourable Syrian Scholar, Shaykh ‘Abdul Fattah Abu Ghuddah (rahimahullah) states that although certain Muhaddithun have declared this Hadith unreliable, it has been reported through several chains which indicate that this Hadith does have some basis.

(Lamahat Min Tarikhis Sunnah, pg. 29/30. Also see Al Maqasidul Hasanah, Hadith: 59 and Shaykh Muhammad ‘Awwamah’s -hafizahullah- footnotes on Al Madkhal of Bayhaqi, vol. 1 pg. 132-134, Hadith: 235)

The Hadith is therefore, suitable.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
