A narration regarding Khubayb (radiyallahu ‘anhu)

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Is the narration wherein Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said Khubayb (radiyallahu ‘anhu) will be my close companion in Jannah and he is ‘Sayyidush Shuhada’ [The leader of the martyrs] authentic?



This narration is cited in certain non Hadith books. However, Hafiz Ibn Hajar Al ‘Asqalani (rahimahullah) states that he has not come across [any basis/chain] for these narrations [lam ajidhu].

(Ad Dirayah, vol. 3 pg. 88, Darul Lubab edition)


These narrations should therefore not be quoted until they can be sourced and verified.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
