By almaas Aug 15, 2023

اجلس يا أبا تراب!» – قاله لعلي
(صحيح) … [خ] عن سهل بن سعد)

 It is reported that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

“ Sit down, O Abu Turab! [1] ” 

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) addressed these words to ‘Ali. This hadith was narrated by al-Bukhari (3703, 6204), Ibn Hibban (6925) from the words of Sahl ibn Sa’d, may Allah be pleased with him.

The hadith is authentic. See Saheeh al-Jami ‘as-saghir (156).

_________________________________________________________________________

In one of the versions of this hadith, quoted by Imam al-Bukhari, it is reported that Sahl bin Sa’d (may Allah be pleased with him) said: “(Once, when) the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) came to the house Fatima, he did not find ‘Ali there and asked: “Where is your uncle’s son?” (Fatima) replied: “We had an argument, and he got angry with me and left, refusing to sleep with me during the day.” Then the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) told one person: “Look where he is.” (After a while this man) returned and said: “O Messenger of Allah, he sleeps in the mosque.” Then the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) came there (and saw) that Ali’s cape had fallen from his side, and he himself was lying soiled in dust. And the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) began to dust off him, saying: “ Sit down, O Abu Turab! ” 


[1] Abu Turab is literally “the father of dust”, that is, rolled in dust. Subsequently, ‘Ali, may Allah be pleased with him, was proud of this nickname and loved when he was called by it. See Mukhtasar Sahih al-Bukhari (note to hadith no. 441).
