Keeping Ties of Kinship


آخَى – صلى الله عليه وسلم – بَينَ الزُّبَيرِ وبَينَ عَبْدِ اللهِ بْنِ مَسْعود

From Anas, who said, “The Prophet, صلى الله عليه وسلم, formed a pact of brotherhood between Ibn Mas’ood and az-Zubair.”

As-Saheehah, no., 3166 | authentic

Shaikh al-Albaani said, “Ibn Abdul-Barr said, ‘The pact of brotherhood occurred two times: once between the Muhaajirs specifically and that was in Makkah, and once between the Muhaajirs and the Ansaar.’  And from the proofs of this first pact of brotherhood is this authentic hadith, because az-Zubair and Ibn Mas’ood were both Muhaajirs as is well known.  It seems that Shaikhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah, may Allaah have mercy upon him, did not come across this hadith and others like it, since he denied this [first] brotherhood (11/99-100), al-Haafidh Ibn Hajr mentioned this and refuted that opinion based on this hadith and others.”
