Status of the narrator Razin ibn ‘Uqbah

Question

I would like to know the status of the Hadith narrator Razin ibn ‘Uqbah.

 

Answer

Razin ibn ‘Uqbah has been declared unknown [majhul].

(Refer: Mizanul I’tidal, vol. 2 pg. 47, number: 2656 and Taqribut Tahdhib: 1941)

 

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.
