Assalamu3alaikum wa rehmatullahi wa barakatahu,
Can we accept Ahad hadith of following kind? If yes, can you explain it how?
Hadith of “MUSHRIK”
Imam and Hafiz of hadith Abu Yala (Rh) narrates a hadith in his Musnad with the chain going back to the companion of Prophet , Sayyedina Huzaifa (rd) that the Prophet of Allah ( Rasul Allah Sallala hu alai hi wasallam) said
“Verily, I fear about a man from you who will read the Quran so much that his face will become enlightened and will come to personify Islam…. and attack his neighbour with the sword accusing him of Shirk. The Prophet was asked ‘Which of the two was commiting Shirk? The attacker or the attacked?’ The Prophet replied ‘The attacker (the one accusing the other of Shirk).”
The classification of this Hadith is Jayyid
Ibn Kathir also recorded this hadith in his Tafsir under Surah Al-Araf.
Not ‘can’ but ‘must’, and whoever does not is a fasiq – corrupt person.
