Is the narration wherein Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said Khubayb (radiyallahu ‘anhu) will be my close companion in Jannah and he is ‘Sayyidush Shuhada’ [The leader of the martyrs] authentic?



This narration is cited in certain non Hadith books. However, Hafiz Ibn Hajar Al ‘Asqalani (rahimahullah) states that he has not come across [any basis/chain] for these narrations [lam ajidhu].

(Ad Dirayah, vol. 3 pg. 88, Darul Lubab edition)


These narrations should therefore not be quoted until they can be sourced and verified.



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
