What is the status of the Hadith narrator Al Hakam ibn ‘Umar Ar Ru’ayni?
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.
Note: The above is merely an answer to the question provided. One who is unqualified, should not seek to apply this and/or draw conclusions on related issues independently.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
