What is the reason for the weakness in this chain in the Hadith you have answered here regarding ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) making du’a at the time of Maghrib? Is there a weak narrator?



The weakness is due to a weak narrator; ‘Abdur Rahman ibn Ishaq, Abu Shaybah Al Wasiti.

He has been declared weak by Imams Ahmad, Ibn Ma’in, Nasai and others.

(Refer: Mizanul I’tidal, vol. 2 pg. 486, number: 4567)


See the narration in question here.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
