Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) perfecting and completing the galaxy of Ambiya

Question

What is the reference of this Hadith?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“The example of myself and the Ambiya is that of a man who has built a house, completed it, and beautified it except he leaves out one brick. When the people enter the house, they admire its beauty and they say: ‘If only this one brick was put in place’ I am that brick, I am the seal of the Ambiya”

 

Answer

Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Jabir ibn ‘Abdillah (radiyallahu ‘anhu). Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has also recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 3534, 3535 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2287)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
