Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Is this narration authentic?

عن عمرو بن مالك، قال: حدثني رجل، يزعم أنه أحد العشرة قال: كنا عدة خرجنا في سرية، فانكسرت فخذ رجل منا، فتركناه وتركنا فرسه عنده، فلما ولينا قال: قلت: فإن تولوا فقل حسبي الله لا إله إلا هو عليه توكلت وهو رب العرش العظيم [التوبة: 129] فانبسطت رجلي ثم قلبها فقبضها، فركب فرسه ولحقنا



Imam Abu Bakr ibn Abid Dunya (rahimahullah) has recorded this incident with a suitable chain.

(Kitabu Mujabid Da’wah, Hadith: 50)



‘Amr ibn Malik (rahimahullah) says, A Sahabi who claimed to be from the ‘Asharah [Mubassharah] related to me, “We were once a small brigade in jihad when someone’s leg/thigh bone broke. we left him behind with his horse. When we left, he recited the verse:

فإن تولوا فقل حسبي الله لا إله إلا هو عليه توكلت وهو رب العرش العظيم

But if they turn away, then say, Allah is sufficient for me. There is no Deity but Him. I have put my trust in Him. He is the Rabb of the Mighty Throne‘ (Surah Tawbah, Verse: 129)

He then stretched out his leg, turned it and grabbed hold of it, mounted his horse and caught up with us.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
