Question

How sound is the hadeeth
(prophetic narration), “Allah
revealed to one of His prophets, ‘If
you see poverty coming to you then
say, Welcome, O sign of the
righteous, and if you see richness
coming to you, then say, A sin
whose punishment has been
hastened’”?

Answer

Praise be to Allah.
This hadeeth was narrated by al-
Daylami in Musnad al-Firdaws – as
al-Hafiz al-‘Iraqi said – from the
report of Makhool from Abu’l-Darda.
It is a da’eef (weak) hadeeth, for
Makhool did not hear anything from
Abu’l-Darda.
See Takhreej Ihya ‘Uloom al-Deen,
4/191.
It was also narrated by Abu Na’eem
in al-Hilyah (6/5) from the report of
Mujahid from Ka’b al-Ahbar.
And he narrated it in 6/37 from the
report of Qutadah from Ka’b al-
Ahbaar.

Both isnads (chains of narration)
include Ishaq ibn Bishr al-Kahili,
who is matrook [i.e., his hadeeth is
not accepted]. Abu Zar’ah said: he
used to tell lies.
Al-Daraqutni said he is kaththab
matrook (i.e., a liar whose hadeeth
is not to be accepted). Al-Azdi said:
his hadeeth is to be rejected and is
not valid, and he was accused of
lying. Ibn Hibban said: he used to
fabricate hadeeth and attribute
them to trustworthy narrators
(thiqat); his hadeeth should not be
written down except by way of
amusing oneself with something
weird.
See al-Jarh wa’l-Ta’deel, 2/214; al-
Du’afa wa’l-Matrookeen by Ibn al-
Jawzi, 1/100.
He is one of the storytellers and
time-wasters. Al-Thahabi said in his
biography of him: the shaykh, the
scholar, the storyteller, the weak
narrator (da’eef), the time-waster,
Abu Hudhayfah Ishaq ibn Bishr ibn
Muhammad ibn ‘Abd-Allah ibn Salim
al-Hashimi, whose teacher was al-
Bukhari the author of al-Mubtada,
which is a well known book in two
volumes. Ibn Jareer and others
narrated from him, and in it he
spoke of weird and disastrous
things.

Siyar A’lam al-Nubala, 9/477, 478.
