Nabi’s (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) neighbours causing him harm

Question

عن عائشة قالت: قال رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وسلم): كنت بين شر جارين. بين أبي لهب وعقبة بن أبي معيط إن كانا ليأتيان بالفروث فيطرحانها على بابي حتى إنهم ليأتون ببعض ما يطرحون من الأذى فيطرحونه على بابي. فيخرج به رسول الله – صلى الله عليه وسلم فيقول: يا بني عبد مناف أي جوار هذا! ثم يلقيه بالطريق

 

Answer

Imam Ibn Sa’d (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration with a very weak chain.

(Tabaqat Ibn Sa’d, vol. 1 pg. 157. Refer: Mizanul I’tidal, vol. 4 pg. 218, number: 7533)

 

Translation

Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “I was between two evil neighbours; between Abu Lahab and ‘Uqbah ibn Abi Mu’ayt. They would bring faeces and throw it at my door, they would also bring other waste and throw it at my door. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would come out and say, ‘O Bani ‘Abd Manaf! What type of neighbours are these?’ He would then discard it.'”

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
