“Woe to the one who …”

Question: In Bulughul-Maraam Al-Haafidh Ibn Hajr mentions the hadith of Bahz ibn Hakeem who narrates from his father from his grandafather that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, “Woe to the one who lies when he speaks just to make the people laugh!  Woe unto him, woe unto him.” And al-Haafidh declared its chain of narration to be authentic, what [do you say about its] level of authenticity?

Shaikh al-Albaani answered: It is hasan.

Don’t You Hang Up on Me!


A youth who had just started to practise Islaam phoned Shaikh al-Albaani and as soon as the Shaikh picked up the receiver he said, “I’m a young guy who has just started to practise and I have heard that you hang up the phone very quickly so make sure you don’t hang up until I’ve finished what I want to say!”  So the Shaikh started to laugh and gave him what he wanted.
