Question

Is the hadeeth “The Fire was stoked
for a thousand years until it turned
red…” saheeh?.

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.
This hadeeth was narrated by al-
Tirmidhi: ‘Abbaas al-Doori al-
Baghdaadi told us, Yahya ibn Abi
Bukayr told us, Shareek told us,
narrating from ‘Aasim who is Ibn
Bahdalah, from Abu Saalih from Abu
Hurayrah from the Prophet (peace
and blessings of Allaah be upon
him) who said: “The Fire was stoked
for a thousand years until it turned
red, then it was stoked for a
thousand years until it turned
white, then it was stoked for a
thousand years until it turned
black, and it is intensely black.”
And he said: Suwayd told us, ‘Abd-
Allaah ibn al-Mubaarak told us, from
Shareek, from ‘Aasim, from Abu
Saalih or another man, from Abu
Hurayrah, a similar report, but he
did not attribute it to the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be
upon him). Abu ‘Eesa al-Tirmidhi
said: the hadeeth of Abu Hurayrah
concerning this is more likely to be
mawqoof (i.e., to have an
interruption in the chain of
narration); I do not know of anyone
who attributed it to the Prophet
(peace and blessings of Allaah be
upon him) apart from Yahya ibn Abi
Bukayr (who narrated it) from
Shareek.

Al-Albaani said: This Yahya is thiqah
(trustworthy) and is accepted in al-
Saheehayn, so it is not possible to
criticize him, especially since
Shareek, who is the son of ‘Abd-
Allaah al-Nakha’i al-Qaadi, who has
a bad memory, appears in the
isnaad and this is the weak point of
hadeeth. This is supported by his
confusion; sometimes he attributes
it to the Prophet (peace and
blessings of Allaah be upon him)
and sometimes he does not, and
sometimes he is definite in his
isnaad and says, “from Abu Saalih”,
and sometimes he is uncertain and
says, “from Abu Saalih or another
man.” These are signs that he is
imprecise and does not have a good
memory. So no wonder the scholars
who had knowledge of men’s
biographies classed him as da’eef
(weak). So the hadeeth is da’eef,
whether it is attributed to the
Prophet (peace and blessings of
Allaah be upon him) or not.
See al-Silsilah al-Da’eefah, 3/470.
