Hadith abi taalib sun moon

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

As salam mu allai kum,

Is the following hadith a Sahi hadith? 

"O! My Uncle, even if you put the Sun in my right hand and Moon in my left, I will not give up this mission (of spreading God's word) until I die. Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) 

Please answer as early as possible.

Hadith abi taalib sun moon

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Respected brother, although the above statement attributed to the Noble Prophet Mohamed (saws) is found in almost all the books of Seerah (biography), to the best of our knowledge we have not found this statement recorded in any of the six well known records of authentic (sahih) hadith.


And although it seems probable that in context with the Prophets (saws) conversation with his uncle Abi Talib, he (saws) could have declared this statement, because it is not specifically recorded in the saha-sitta (authentic hadiths), it cannot be verified as sahih. And Allah Alone Knows Best.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
