As Salamu alaykum,
Are the hadiths “the imama is the crown of the Arabs, if they put it down they…” and “between iman and kufr is the imama” sahih or hasan ?
They are both weak and the first one is more likely an Arab proverb but the second one is in the Sunan of Abu Dawud and al Tirmidhi which indicates the Salaf al Salih gave its contents consideration. And Allah knows best.
