Is the hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) leading all the Ambiya (prophets) -‘alayhimus salam- in Salah in Masjid Al Aqsa during Mi’raj authentic?
Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“…. I entered Baytul Maqdis, The Ambiya (‘alayhimus salam) were all gathered . Jibrail (‘alayhis salam) put me forward so that I could lead them in Salah. We then ascended to the sky…”
(Sunan Nasa’i -Al Mujtaba-, Hadith: 450)
Imam Muslim (rahimahullah) has recorded a similar narration in Sahih Muslim on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) which supports the above narration.
(Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 429)
And Allah Ta’ala knows best
