Ameer al-Mu’mineen in Hadeeth [Leader of the Believers in Hadeeth]

leave a comment »

al-Hafidh ibn Hajar al-Asqalani (رحمه الله تعالى) said in his book “Tahdheeb at-Tahdheeb”:

قال الحافظ ابن حجر في تهذيب التهذيب :” قال شعبة وابن عيينة وأبو عاصم وابن معين وغير واحد من العلماء : ” سفيان أمير المؤمنين في الحديث. “

[تهذيب التهذيب , ( 4/113 ) و أخرجه الخطيب في الجامع لأخلاق الراوي وآداب السامع , (1250) ]

Shu’bah [ibn al-Hajjaj], ibn ‘Uyaynah, Abu ‘Aasim, [Yahya] Ibn Ma’een and many others from the scholars said:

“Sufyan is the ‘Ameer al-Mu’mineen’ in Hadeeth”

[Source: Tahdheeb at-Tahdheeb, (4/113) (Publisher: Matbaat Dairat al-Maarif al-Nizamiya (India) First Edition 1326 A.H.]

[The above was also recorded by al-Khateeb al-Baghdadee in “al-Jami’ li Akhlaqi ar-Rawi wa Adabi as-Sami’ (1250)]

al-Hafidh ibn Hajar al-Asqalani (رحمه الله تعالى) also said in the same book “Tahdheeb at-Tahdheeb”:

وقال الحافظ ابن حجر في تهذيب التهذيب : قال ابن مهدي: كان الثوري يقول:” شعبة أمير المؤمنين في الحديث

[تهذيب التهذيب , ( 4/344 ) و شَرَفُ أَصْحَابِ الْحَدِيثِ لِلْخَطِيبِ الْبَغْدَادِيِّ , (ص 115)]

Ibn Mahdee said that [Sufyan] ath-Thawree was saying

“Shu’bah [bin al-Hajjaj] is the ‘Ameer al-Mu’mineen’ in Hadeeth”

[Source: Tahdheeb at-Tahdheeb, (4/344) (Publisher: Matbaat Dairat al-Maarif al-Nizamiya (India) First Edition 1326 A.H.]

[The above was also mentioned by al-Khateeb al-Baghdadee in “Sharafu Ashaabul-Hadeeth” page 115]

Now, the title of “Ameer al-Mumineen” in Hadeeth was given to Shu’bah ibn al-Hajjaj (رحمه الله تعالى) and Sufyan ath-Thawree (رحمه الله تعالى) both, but it was Sufyan ath-Thawree (رحمه الله تعالى) who submitted this title of his to Shu’bah ibn al-Hajjaj (رحمه الله تعالى) [when the latter tried to give the title to him].

لقب أمير المؤمنين في الحديث أطلق على شعبة وسفيان الثوري يقدم على شعبة.

[التقريرات السنية شرح المنظومة البيقونية في مصطلح الحديث, (1/17)]

[Source: Taqrirat al-Sunniyah Sharh al-Mandhumah al-Bayquniyyah (1/17)]

[This can be seen from the above narrations also wherein, in the first narration we have Shu’bah ibn al-Hajjaj (رحمه الله تعالى) giving this title to Sufyan ath-Thawree (رحمه الله تعالى) and the second narration where we have Sufyan ath-Thawree (رحمه الله تعالى) giving this title to Shu’bah ibn al-Hajjaj (رحمه الله تعالى)]
