Verification of a Hadith

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Is this authentic, please give reference?

One day Rasulullah ﷺ asked Jibreal عليه السلام, “Have you ever travelled at full speed?” Jibreal عليه السلام said, “Yes, on four occasions.” Rasulullah ﷺ asked, “What were the four occasions?” Jibreal عليه السلام said, “First time was when Ibrāheem عليه السلام was placed in Nimrud’s fire. At the time I was near the Arsh-Throne. Allāh ordered me to cool the fire. I left the Arsh and descended seven heavens in time. 

Second time was when Ibrāheem عليه السلام was about to sacrifice his son Ishmael عليه السلام in Mina. Allāh ordered me to replace his son with a lamb, before Ibrāheem عليه السلام struck with his knife.

Third time was when, the brothers of Yusuf عليه السلام threw him into the well. Allāh ordered me to save Yusuf عليه السلام, I rushed and placed my wing underneath Yusuf عليه السلام before he reached the bottom of the well.

And the final time was when you, Ya Rasulallah ﷺ, injured your tooth at the battle of Uhud. Allāh Ta’ala ordered me to stop your blood reaching the ground, otherwise no plant or tree would grow, till the end of the world. Hearing this, I rushed and saved your blood with my wings.”

Bismillaah

A: We have not come across this.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
