Summary notes: Lesson 16
-On pg.67, the narration of ibn ishaq regarding the first sermon has weakness according to certain scholars.
-To strengthen the credibility of narrations, the companions would either bring other companions to confirm narrations or make people swear a qasam, because in that time people began to fabricate ahadith.
-However, the hadith is not usable, it could be weak relatively, i.e. weaker than other ahadith.
-Pg 71, the statement, “Sabbahakum wa massakum” was used to address his people to wake them from slumber. A point of benefit here is how a leader must speak, being firm at certain times.
-The Prophets were called names, even when they were worshipping Allah. They had thick skin.
