Sunni scholars from Ahlulbayt


بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

Not only the Sunnis took knowledge from Ahlulbayt but in the history of Islam from early times to modern day there have been thousands of scholars and Imams from the Ahlulbayt among the Ahlu-Sunnah wal-jam’ah – who constitute the vast majority of Muslims.

Unlike the minority Shia sects – the Ahlu-Sunnah did not restrict the Ahlulbayt to 5 or 7 or 12 etc people and claim only they have the knowledge rather they took knowledge from whoever were the scholar and Imam from the Ahlulbayt.

Here, I would like share some books that lists major Sunni scholars from past to modern times who are from the Ahlulbayt – keep in mind they are major scholars not random scholars. Sadly, most of the works are only available in Arabic but fortunately there is an English translation of one of the books that list the names and biographies of the Hanafi scholars from the Ahlulbayt. It can be read here:

Note: The rest of the books that cover the scholars from the Maliki, Hanbali and Shafi’i schools are the following:

Shah Ismail Safavi & killings of Sunni scholars in Shiraz for refusing to curse Sahaba


Shah Ismail Safavi and killings of Sunni scholars in Shiraz for refusing to curse the Khulafa Rashideen, the close companions of Prophet (saw).

Shia scholar Nematullah al-Jazairi says in Anwar un Numania, 1/ 27:

ولما اتى اسماعيل اعلى الله مقامه الى شيراز وكان اكثر علمائها من المخالفين احضرهم وامرهم بلعن المتخلفين الثلثة فامتنعوا عن اللعن لان التقية لا تجوز عندهم في اللعن واضرابه فامر بقتلهم

When Ismail reached Shiraz, where most of the scholars there were the opponents (Sunnis); he gathered them and ordered them to curse the three caliphs, but they rejected because Taqiyyah is not permissible according to them, so he ordered to kill them.

Scholars of Ahlus Sunnah from Ahlul-Bayt (Part 1)


“Mukhtaṣar A`lām al-Ḥanafiyyah min Ahl-ul-Bayt”
Scholars of Ahlul-Sunnah from Ahlul-Bayt (Part 1)


In this thread In-shā’-Allāh, I shall post my translation and abridgment of the book “A`lām al-Ḥanafiyyah min Ahl-ul-Bayt” by Muḥammad Wā’il al-Ḥanbalī.

Objective of the book:

This book is a research done in some books of history and biographies in which the author gathers the names of all famous and iconic men who have two things in common:

1- They belong to the Ḥanafī Madhab.
2- They are from the progeny of Ahl-ul-Bayt.

What the original Arabic book contains that my summary does not contain:

1- Short introduction to the Hanafi Madhab and its most important figures.
2- Brief overview of the historical ties between the Ḥanafī Madhab and Ahl-ul-Bayt and which of the Ḥanafī scholars wrote books about Ahl-ul-Bayt.
3- Much more detail about each scholar discussed, such as their teachers and students and books and where they traveled and more…
4- Useful footnotes with sources and comments and opinions by the author.
5- List of books used for this research.
6- Comprehensive index.

NOTES:

-This thread shall only contain names of scholars of Ahl-ul-Bayt who belong to the “Ḥanafī” Madhab, not the average people or the laypeople from that Madhab.
-We shall list those we came across and we cannot claim that we managed to gather all of the Ḥanafī scholars of prophetic descent.
-We have only gathered the names of those who are authentically proven to be from Ahl-ul-Bayt, not those who are said to be from them, or those who claim it without solid proofs from proper sources.
-The Ḥanafī Madhab spread in areas such as Bukhara and Persia and it is known that there was no presence for Ahl-ul-Bayt in those areas in the first couple of centuries.

Example of how each man shall be presented in the list:

– Name (Date of birth – Date of death) Famous for:
Long Name and Lineage.

The Tawtheeq of Ibn Ḥibbān


Alsalam alaykum,

Some of our friends seem to be thinking that Sunnis are making the rules up as they go along when it comes to rejecting weak narrations. However, this is far from true. I’ve personally seen examples of early and late scholars coming to the conclusion that Ibn Hibban’s tawtheeq shouldn’t be accepted if he is the only person doing tawtheeq.

Al-Albani said (Al-Rawd Al-Dani fil Fawa’id Al-Hadeethia, p. 18):

ولهذا نجد المحققين من المحدثين كالذهبي والعسقلاني وغيرهما لا يوثقون من تفرد بتوثيقه ابن حبان

Rough Trans: “And that is why we find the muhaditheen like Al-Thahabi and Ibn Hajar and others, not strengthening those that Ibn Hibban strengthens alone.”

Shaikh Muqbil was asked in Al-Muqtarah (p. 47):

السؤال: ابن حبان معروف أنه يوثق المجاهيل، فإن كان الراوي غير مجهول وقد روى عنه أكثر من واحد، وقال ابن حبان: هذا مستقيم الحديث أو قال هذا ثقة هل نتوقف في توثيقه أم نعتبره؟

الجواب: من أهل العلم كما في التنكيل بما في تأنيب الكوثري من الأباطيل من قال فيه: إنه يقبل. وهو إختيار المعلمي.

أما (ثقة) فالغالب أنه عرف هو نفسه بالتساهل، فيتوقف لأنه قد عرف هو بالتساهل في توثيق المجاهيل، فإذا وثق غير مجهول يقبل منه، أما المجهولون فقد عرف منه التساهل في هذا.

Rough trans:

Question: Ibn Hibban is known for strengthening anonymous narrators, so if the narrator wasn’t unknown, and has more than one student, and Ibn Hibban said: mustaqeemul hadith or thiqa, do we still not accept him or do we?

Answer: Some of the scholars, like Al-Mu’allami in Al-Tankeel accepted this. As for the term thiqa, in most cases, he is known for being lenient, so we stop, because he was lenient in strengthening unknown narrators. However, if he strengthened someone that is known, then we accept it.

So, there you have it, Al-Thahabi, Ibn Hajar, Al-Mu’allami, Al-Albani, and Shaikh Muqbil all hold the opinion that Ibn Hibban’s strengthening of unknown narrators is not acceptable.

Inshallah this will be beneficial to all.
