What is the status of the Hadith narrator ‘Ata ibn Abi ‘Alqamah ibn Harith?



‘Ata ibn Abi ‘Alqamah ibn Harith has been declared unknown (majhul).

(Refer: Taqribut Tahdhib: 4595)


His narrations will therefore be deemed weak, unless more information about him comes to light.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
