20140209-193449.jpg

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْعَلاَءِ، وَمُحَمَّدُ بْنُ مَكِّيٍّ الْمَرْوَزِيُّ، – الْمَعْنَى – قَالاَ حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ الْمُبَارَكِ، عَنْ سُلَيْمَانَ التَّيْمِيِّ، عَنْ أَبِي عُثْمَانَ، – وَلَيْسَ بِالنَّهْدِيِّ – عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ مَعْقِلِ بْنِ يَسَارٍ، قَالَ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ “‏ اقْرَءُوا ‏{‏ يس ‏}‏ عَلَى مَوْتَاكُمْ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ وَهَذَا لَفْظُ ابْنِ الْعَلاَءِ ‏.‏

حكم : ضيف و هذا لفظ ابن العلاء (الألباني)

*Narrated Ma’qil ibn Yasar:
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: Recite Surah Ya-Sin over your dying men. This is the version of Ibn al-Ala’

Reference : Sunan Abi Dawud 312
In-book reference : Book 21, Hadith 33
English translation : Book 20, Hadith 3115
*Similar narrations by Ahmad (20301) and Ibn Maajah (1448)

Ruling: Da’eef (Weak) by Sheikh al-Albāni

The hadeeth has three defects:

1. ‘Jahaalah’ (The unknown state of a narrator) namely Abu Uthmaan

2. The ‘Jahaalah’ of his father

3. ‘Al Idtiraab’ (Uncertainty in the manner in which the chains of narration have occured, leading to inability to establish the hadeeth)
