Status of the narrator, Kurayb At Tabib

Question

What is the status of the narrator Kurayb At Tabib?

 

Answer

The Muhaddithun have declared Kurayb At Tabib/Kurayb ibn Tabib unknown [majhul].

(Al Jarh Wat Ta’dil of Ibn Abi Hatim, vol. 7 pg. 168, Lisanul Mizan, vol. 6 pg. 420, number: 6222)

 

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

 

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.
