Brief Comments of Shaikh Ibn Baaz on Saheeh al-Bukhaaree #7

Single Narrator Is An Evidence

بـسـم الله والحـمـد لله والـصلاة والـسـلام عــلى رسـول الله، وبـعـد

Imaam al-Bukhaaree رحمه الله said:

Book of Ablution: Chapter: Passing wet hands over shoes covering ankles

Narrated `Abdullaah bin `Umar: Sa`d bin Abi Waqqaas said, “The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم passed wet hands over his Khuffs.” `Abdullaah bin `Umar asked `Umar (ibn al-Khattaab) about it. `Umar replied in the affirmative and added, "Whenever Sa'd narrates a Hadeeth from the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, there is no need to ask anyone else about it." [Saheeh al-Bukhaaree (202)] [1]

Shaikh Ibn Baaz رحمه الله said:

[1] The saying of even a single reliable (person), no matter he be a Companion or other than them, is an evidence in the matters of al-Ahkaam (rulings) and al-Aqeedah (creed). And this is what “Ahl al-Sunnah wal-Jamaa`ah” is upon.

* There is a consensus of the Muslims on acting on the Hadeeth: “Reward of deeds depends upon the intention”. And there is only a single narrator in the (first four) levels: `Umar, `Alqamah, Muhammad bin Ibraaheem, Yahyaa bin Sa`eed.

* The passing of wet hands over the khuffs (socks, shoes etc) is a Sunnah Mutawaatir** (i.e. a large number of narrators have narrated it) from the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم that he did it in his stays and travels. And it is allowed for both men and women in all circumstances.

* The Raafidhah pass wet hands over their feet, and they oppose to pass wet hands over their footwear. The Raafidhah, in this matter, have three oppositions:
Ø  They do not wash their feet rather they only pass wet hands over it.
Ø  They do not pass wet hands over their footwear.
Ø  For them the word “Ka`b” means the protruding bone in the middle of the foot. (Whereas “Ka`b” in Arabic actually means the ankle).
** Mutawaatir: That which has been narrated by a large number of people in every level of the chain such that it is impossible for all of them to make a mistake or error or that which makes it impossible for them to forge. Ahad is the opposite in that it contains less than 4 narrators at any given level of the isnaad. Mutawaatir has more than 4 at each level. (The exact number has been differed over, between 4 and 70).

Kindly refer to the book of Shaikh al-Albaanee for more details on the subject of acceptability of Ahad Ahaadeeth.
