Beware the intuition/foresight of a Believer!


I heard a Hadith  “Fear the firasah (intuition) of a mu’min as he sees with the light of Allah”.

May I ask if this is sahih


Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) and others have recorded this narration.

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3127)

Although some Muhaddithun have declared the above Hadith as weak, other Muhaddithun, after inspecting the various chains have declared the Hadith as sound (hasan) due to similar corroborating narrations. The Hadith is suitable to quote.

(Refer: Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 10 pg. 268, Al Maqasidul Hasanah, Hadith: 23, Mukhtasarul Maqasid, Hadith: 21, Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 2 pg. 305, Faydul Qadir, Hadith; 151, As Sirajul Munir, vol. 1 pg. 44. Also see Al Mudawi and Fathul Wahhab, -vol. 1 pg. 476- of Ahmad Siddiq Al Ghumari)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
