What is the reference of this Hadith?

“Be led by the guidance of ‘Ammar ibn Yasir (radiyallahu ‘anhuma).”



This is part of a longer narration recorded by Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) and other Muhaddithun.

Sayyiduna Hudhayfah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said: ‘We were seated with Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) when he said, ‘…And follow the way/guidance of ‘Ammar [ibn Yasir]…”

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3799. See another part of the Hadith and the authenticity here)


In another Hadith, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said that ‘Ammar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) always chooses matters that have more guidance. See here.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
