Correct way of pronouncing Sa’id ibn Al Musayyab (rahimahullah)’s name

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

What is the correct method of pronouncing Sa’id ibn Al Musayyab (rahimahullah)’s name? Musayyab (with a fathah) or Musayyib (with a kasrah)?

Answer

Both ways are correct.

‘Allamah Nawawi (rahimahullah) states that the people of Madinah Al Munawwarah pronounce it as Al Musayyib (with a kasrah) and Al Musayyab (with a fathah) is the more popular way.
