a) Shaykh Al-Albani Said: “The Chain is Good.according to me Rout is Strong, Narrators are trustworthy and are those of Sahih Muslim except Ibne Abi Omair who is Companion(of Prophet peace be upon him) Some other routs say “”Allah, make him (Muawiya) guided, a guider, and guide people through him“. (Silsilah As Saheeha Vol 7 page no: 690 hadith no: 3227)

Authentic rout in Fadail e Sahaba of Imam Ahmad no: 1748

عن معاوية عن يونس بن سيف عن الحارث بن زياد عن أبي رهم عن العرباض بن سارية – رضي الله عنه – قال سمعت رسول الله – صلى الله عليه وسلم – وهو يدعونا إلى السحور في شهر رمضان : ( هلموا إلى الغذاء المبارك ) ، ثم سمعته يقول : ( اللهم علم معاوية الكتاب والحساب وقه العذاب ) .

Al-Aarbad bin Sariyah as-Sulamee ra reported that he heard the Prophet Peace be upon him saying as a du’aa : “O Allah ! Teach Muawya the Book and Math, and protect him from the Punishment ” .

[Muhaqqiq of Fadail e Sahaba said Chain is Hasan Lighairihi, Hafiz ad-Dahabee said This hadeeth is Powerful shahid (of previous hadeeth) (see Syar Ailam al Nubala 3/124) Ibn e Khuzaima Authenticated in his Saheeh 3/214,Muhaqqiq of Sahih Ibne Khuzaimah Muhammad Mustafa Al Azami said “Chain is weak Al Harith is Unknown but hadith is authentic due to other routs from Arbad bin Sariyah etc”, Authenticated by Ibn e Hibban in Al Ihsan Kitab Manaqib as Sahaba Chapter Moawiya bin Abi Sufiyan May Allah be please with him Vol 16 page 191, Shaykh Zubair Ali Zai said Chain is Hasan in Majallah al hadith no: 29 page 62), Shaykh Al-AlBani said Chain is Hasan with its routs (As-Saheeha Vol 7 Page 688)]

Mursal Shahid of this hadith .

حدثنا أبو المغيرة ، ثنا صفوان قال : حدثني شريح بن عبيد أن رسول الله – صلى الله عليه وسلم – دعا لمعاوية بن أبي سفيان : ( اللهم علمه الكتاب والحساب وقه العذاب ) .

Shareeh bin Obaid said ( O Allah ! Teach Muawya the Book and Math, and protect him from the Punishment ) .[Fadail e Sahaba of Imam Ahmad hadeeth no: 1749 Muhaqqiq of The book said chain is weak because of Irsaal and Narrators are trustworthy, This is making previous hadith more powerful and strength makes it Hasan Laghirihi]

2. حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو مُسْهِرٍ عَبْدُ الأَعْلَى بْنُ مُسْهِرٍ، عَنْ سَعِيدِ بْنِ عَبْدِ الْعَزِيزِ، عَنْ رَبِيعَةَ بْنِ يَزِيدَ، عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ أَبِي عَمِيرَةَ، وَكَانَ، مِنْ أَصْحَابِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم أَنَّهُ قَالَ لِمُعَاوِيَةَ ‏”‏ اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْهُ هَادِيًا مَهْدِيًّا وَاهْدِ بِهِ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو عِيسَى هَذَا حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌ غَرِيبٌ ‏.‏

Prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa sallam) said to Muawiyah (r.a): “Allah, make him (Muawiya ) guided, a guider, and guide people through him”.[Imam Bukhari in Tareekh Al Kabeer 5/240, Sunan at-Tirmidhi, Shaykh Al-Albani Authenticated in (Sahih Tirmidhee 3/236)]

Shaykh Muhammad Ameen Shinqiti said Ra

أخرج الإمام البخاري بسند صحيح في التاريخ الكبير (5|240): عن أبي مسهر حدثنا سعيد بن عبد العزيز عن ربيعة بن يزيد عن (الصحابي عبد الرحمن) بن أبي عميرة قال: قال النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم لمعاوية: «اللهم اجعلهُ هادِياً مَهديّاً واهده واهدِ به».

“It was transmitted by imam Bukhari in his “Tareekh al-kabir” (5/240) via authentic chain: From Abu Musakhar, it was reported to me by Sayed ibn Abdulaziz from Rabi`ee ibn Yazid from (companion Abdurrahman) ibn Abu Umeyrat, which said: Prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa sallam) said about Muawiyah: “Allah, make him (Muawiya :ra: ) guided, a guider, and guide people through him”.[Ahadeth an-nabawiya fi fadhail Muawiya ibn Abu Sufyan]

Authentic Shahid in Musnad Ahmad

17926 – حدثنا عبد الله حدثني أبي ثنا علي بن بحر ثنا الوليد بن مسلم ثنا سعيد بن عبد العزيز عن ربيعة بن يزيد عن عبد الرحمن بن أبي عميرة الأزدي عن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم : انه ذكر معاوية وقال اللهم اجعله هاديا مهديا واهد به

Prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa sallam) said to Muawiyah (r.a): “Allah, make him (Muawiya ) guided, a guider, and guide people through him”.

[Ahmad in “Musnad” hadeeth no:17926, Sheikh Shuayb Arnanoot said under this hadeeth: Narrators Trustworthy and are those of Saheeh, Ibn Athakir authenticated in Tareekh madinatul dimashq” (59/106), Shaykh Zubair Ali Zai Authenticated in Majallah Al Hadith no: 29 page 60]

3. Narrated Ibn Abi Mulaika: Somebody said to Ibn ‘Abbas, “Can you speak to the chief of the believers Muwaiya, as he does not pray except one Rak’a as Witr?” Ibn ‘Abbas replied, “He is a faqih (i.e. a learned man who can give religious verdicts) .[Sahih Bukhari Book #57, Hadith #109]

4. Ibn Abbas (رضي الله عنهما) reported that the Prophet (صلّى الله عليه وسلّم) told him :
” Go bring Muawya to Me “, because he wrote down Allah’s Revelation (Wahy) for the Prophet .[Recorded by Imam Ahmad 2651 , Dalail Al Nabuwwah of Behaqi vol 6 page 243 and verified to be authentic by Albani in Silsilat as-Saheehah 1-164 and Shaykh Zubair Ali Zai Authenticated and said Chain is Hasan in Majallah Al Hadith no: 29 page 5]

Here is the shia sahih hadith about writing revelation by muawiyah[ra]: click here

Ibn e Athakir said regarding him:

خال المومنين وكاتب وحى رب العالمين

Uncle of Momineen and Katib Ul Wahi of Rabb Al Alameen [Tareekh Damishq 62/38]

5. Narrated by Umm Alqamah that Muawiyah bin Abi Sufiyan Came to Madeenah and asked for Blanket and hair of Prophet Peace be upon him from Aisha RA then He (Muawiyah) covered himself with the blanket, dipped the hair in water, drank and put on his body.[Tareekh Damishq 62/106 and chain is Hasan as Shaykh Zubair Ali Zai said in Majallah Al Hadith no: 29 page 60]

Note: this athar is proof that how much Muawiyah RA loved Prophet peace be upon him and is also proof for Seeking Blessings through the Holy Relics of Prophet Peace be upon him if they are really from Prophet.

6. Ibn e Abbas ra Said

ما رأيت رجلا كان أخلق يعنى للملك من معاوية

I have not seen more applicable for Ruling (after khilafat of 4 Caliph) better than Muawiyah.[Tareekh Damishq 62/161 with authentic chain as Shaykh Zubair Ali Zai said in Majallah Al Hadeeth no: 29 page 62,Musannif Abdul Razzaq vol 11 page 453 no: 20985]
