Could you please give me the reference of the Hadith in which Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said to narrate the stories of the Banu Israil?
Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (radiyallahu ‘anhuma).
Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “…And narrate the incidents of the Bani Israil [and there is] no sin in this…”
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 3461. See another part of this Hadith here)
See the detailed ruling of the different types of Israely (historical) narrations here.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
