Is Khattab Da-im a reliable narrator?



You are probably referring to the narrator, Khattab ibn ‘Abd Ad Da-im.

Hafiz Khatib Baghdadi (rahimahullah) has stated that he is weak and known to report unreliable narrations (ضعيف يعرف برواية المناكير). He has been accused of reporting a fabricated Hadith.

(Tarikh Baghdad, 4 pg. 271, Mizanul I’tidal, vol. 1 pg. 603, number: 2403, Lisanul Mizan, vol. 3 pg. 363, number: 2947)

His narrations will therefore be deemed unreliable.

Note: The above is merely an answer to the question provided. One who is unqualified, should not seek to apply this and/or draw conclusions on related issues independently.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
