Clarification of the word رضا

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com

In the following Hadith is the word رضاء (with hamza) an error?

… سُبْحَانَ اللَّهِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ عَدَدَ خَلْقِهِ، وَرِضَاءَ نَفْسِهِ، وَزِنَة عَرْشِهِ، وَمِدَادَ كَلِمَاتِهِ

It is mentioned like this in some commentaries e.g Malimus sunan with hamza


In the following references which I have checked, the word is written as رضا [without the hamzah]. This includes Ma’alimus Sunan as published by Maktabatul Ma’arif.

(Ma’alimus Sunan, Hadith: 1448; Abu Dawud, Hadith:1503; Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3555; Sunan Nasa’i, Hadith: 1352; Sahih Muslim with Minhaj, Hadith: 6851; Musnad Ahmad, vol. 6 pg. 325)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
