Status of the narrator Hakam ibn ‘Amr/’Umar Ar Ru’ayni

Question

What is the status of the Hadith narrator Al Hakam ibn ‘Umar Ar Ru’ayni?

 

Answer

Hakam ibn ‘Amr/’Umar Ar Ru’ayni has been declared weak by Imams Yahya ibn Ma’in, Nasai, Ya’qub ibn Sufyan and Abu Hatim (rahimahumullah).

(Refer: Lisanul Mizan, vol. 3 pg. 249/250, number: 2693)

 

His narrations will therefore be deemed weak.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
