A khateeb (orator) of a masjid in my
area mentioned in a khutbah
(sermon) a hadeeth narrated by
Salman (may Allah be pleased with
him), that the Prophet (peace and
blessings of Allah be upon him),
gave them a khutbah in the last day
of Sha’aban … etc. Some brothers
objected to what the khateeb said in
front of the worshippers saying that
this hadeeth is fabricated. He also
said that the Prophet (peace and
blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
“Whoever feeds a fasting person,
Allah will bless him a drink of my
Cistern (Al-Hawdh), he will never
feel thirsty after it until he is in
Paradise” and also said: “Whoever
makes it easy on his slave, Allah will
forgive him and free him of the
Hellfire”. The brother objected and
said: this is lying and the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allah be
upon him) did not say this. A person
tells lies about what the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allah be
upon him) said should expect his
place in Hell”. Is the hadeeth
mentioned correct or not?


Praise be to Allah
The hadeeth of Salman (may Allah
be pleased with him) was narrated
by Ibn Khuzaymah in his Saheeh. He
said: Chapter on the virtues of the
month of Ramadhan if the report is
saheeh. Then he said: ‘Ali ibn Hijr al-
Sa’di told us, Yoosuf ibn Ziyad told
us, Humam ibn Yahya told us, from
‘Ali ibn Zayd ibn Jad’an, from Sa’eed
ibn al-Musayyab, from Salman (may
Allah be pleased with them) who
said: The Messenger of Allah (peace
and blessings of Allah be upon him)
addressed us on the last day of
Sha’ban and said: “O people, there
has come to you a great month, a
blessed month, a month in which
there is a night that is better than
a thousand months. Allah has made
fasting it obligatory and spending
its nights in prayer a voluntary act.
Whoever draws close (to Allah)
during it by doing a good deed will
be like one who did an obligatory
deed in any other month, and the
one who does an obligatory deed in
it will be like one who did seventy
obligatory deeds in any other
month. It is the month of patience,
and the reward of patience is
Paradise. It is the month of helping
others. It is a month in which the
believer’s provision is increased.
Whoever gives a fasting person food
with which to break his fast will
have his sins forgiven and he will be
ransomed from the Fire, and he will
have a reward like his without it
detracting from his reward in the
slightest.” They said: Not all of us
can find something to give to the
fasting person with which to break
his fast. He said: “Allah will give this
reward to the one who gives a
fasting person a date or a drink of
water or a sip of milk. It is a month
the beginning of which is mercy, the
middle of which is forgiveness and
the end of which is ransom from the
Fire. The one who reduces the
burden for his slave will be forgiven
by Allah, and He will ransom him
from the Fire. So do a lot of four
good deeds during it, two with
which you will please your Lord and
two which you cannot do without.
As for the two good deeds with
which you will please your Lord,
they are bearing witness that there
is no god except Allah, and seeking
His forgiveness. As for those which
you cannot do without, they are
asking Allah for Paradise and
seeking refuge with Him from Hell.
Whoever feeds a fasting person
until he is full, Allah will give him to
drink from my Cistern, a drink after
which he will not thirst again until
he enters Paradise.”

Its isnad (chain of narration)
includes ‘Ali ibn Zayd ibn Jad’an,
who is da’eef (weak) because of his
bad memory. Its isnad also includes
Yoosuf ibn Ziyad al-Basri, whose
hadeeth is munkar (rejected). It also
includes Humam ibn Yahya ibn
Dinar al-‘Awadi, concerning whom
Ibn Hajar said in al-Taqreeb: He is
trustworthy but he may make
Based on this, the hadeeth with this
isnad is not false, but it is weak.
However, many of the virtues of
Ramadhan are proven in the saheeh
ahadeeth (authentic narrations).
