أحد أحد
(صحيح) … [د ن ك] عن سعد [ت ن ك] عن أبي هريرة. المشكاة 913: حب)

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

“One, one!” 

This hadith was narrated by Abu Dawud (1499), al-Nasai (3/38), al-Hakim (1/536) from the words of Sa’d ibn Abu Waqas; Ahmad (2/520), at-Tirmidhi (3557), al-Nasai (3/38), al-Hakim (1/536) according to Abu Hurayra, may Allah be pleased with them. 

Sheikh al-Albani called the hadith authentic. See Sahih al-Jami ‘as-saghir (189), Sahih Abi Daud (1344), Sahih an-Nasai (1272), Mishkatul-masabih (913), Aslu syfati-s- sala ”(3/857, 858).

It is reported that Sa’d ibn Abu Waqas, may Allah be pleased with him, said:

“(Once), when I was making a prayer (using) my two fingers, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) walked past me and said: ‘One, one,’ and he pointed with his index finger.”

The meaning of the words “One, one!” – that is, point with one finger, for the One to whom you call is one. Sa’d was pointing with two fingers, and the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) commanded him to point with his index finger. See Sharh Sunan Abi Daud by B. al-‘Aini (5/410).

It is narrated from the words of Abu Huraira that when a person (during a prayer) began to move two fingers, the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to him: “One, one!”

The words “One, one!” – that is, point with one finger to match the Monotheism / tawhid / that the pointing requires. See Aun al-Ma’bud (4/256).
