Advice given to Abu Dharr (radiyallahu ‘anhu)

Question

Someone in our local Masjid was sharing this lengthy narration in the form of a booklet. However, many said it is a Shi’i narration.

Can you kindly clarify the authenticity?

Abu Dharr (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said that one day, “I entered at midday in the presence of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) in his Masjid and I said: ‘O Rasulullah, by my father and mother, please advise me with such advice that Allah will benefit me by it.’

So he said: ‘Yes, and how noble you are O Abu Dharr! Most surely, you are from us, the Ahlul Bayt and I am giving you advise, so remember it, for surely it is the collection of [all] the paths of goodness. Surely if you memorise them and put them into practice, you will have two folds of mercy [In this world and the Hereafter]…”

 

 

Answer

I have not come across this Hadith in any primary Hadith source.

This Hadith appears in the books of the Shi’ah, like Biharul Anwar.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
