Three deeds of Iman

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by HadithAnswers.com


Can you please provide the reference for this Hadith

Sayyiduna ‘Ammar ibn Yasir  (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) narrated; Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

Whoever has three qualities will have completed the faith; fairness from yourself to others, offering peace (salam) to the world, and spending in charity even while poor.

(Sahih Bukhari)


This narration is not recorded by Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) as a Hadith in his Sahih.

Rather, Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) cited it without a chain (ta’liqan). It is incorrect to reference this kind of a narration to Sahih Bukhari, without stating that it is a ta’liq.

Another point to note is that Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah), when he did cite this, he cited it (albeit ta’liqan) as the statement of Sayyiduna ‘Ammar (radiyallahu’anhu), and not as a Hadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam).

The full chain for this has been recorded in several Hadith sources, among them are:

Musannaf ‘Abdur Razzaq, Hadith: 19439 and Musannaf ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 31080.

Imams Tabarani and Bazzar (rahimahumallah) have recorded it as a Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) [i.e. as quoted in the question above].

(Al-Mu’jamul Kabir and Musnad Bazzar, Hadith: 1396. Also see: Fathul Bari, before Hadith: 28 and Taghliqut Ta’liq, vol. 2 pg. 36-40)

One may quote either version.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
