Valuing a strand of the blessed hair of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam)

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


Kindly provide the reference and authenticity of the following narration:

Ibn Sirin (rahimahullah) has said: “I said to ‘Abidah (rahimahullah): ‘We have some of the hair of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) which we got from Anas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) or from his family.’

‘Abidah (rahimahullah) replied. “No doubt if I had a single strand of that [hair], it would have been dearer to me than the whole world and whatever is in it.”



Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Ibn Sirin (rahimahullah). Therefore, it is authentic.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 170)


And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
