I was trying to determine the birth year of Muhammad ibn Ja’far ibn Zubayr ibnil ‘Awwam and if he was a Tabi’i or not. Can you kindly assist?
In the books on Hadith narrators I have referred to, I have not come across mention of Muhammad’s ibn Ja’far ibn Zubayr ibnul ‘Awwam birth year.
In Taqribut Tahdhib, Hafiz Ibn Hajar (rahimahullah) states that he was a Tab’ut Tabi’i (من السادسة). He passed away around the year 110 A.H while he was still a youngster.
(Refer: Tahdhibul Kamal, vol. 24 pg. 579-580, Tarikhul Islam, vol. 5 pg. 307, Tahdhibut Tahdhib, vol. 9 pg. 93, Taqribut Tahdhib: 5782)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
