Ibn Sirin said:

Abul Waleed led us – We the seven children of  Sirin – on Hajj. He led us through Madinah and took us to Zayd Ibn Thabit (رضي الله عنه) . He told him, “These are sons of Sirin. Zayd  (رضي الله عنه) then started saying, “These (three) are sons of the same mother, these two are sons of the same mother and these two are sons of the same mother.” And he did not make any mistakes for Muhammad, Ma’bad and Yahya are sons of the same mother.

I studied the companions (رضي الله عنهم) of Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and discovered that knowledge is concentrated in 6 individuals among them: ‘Ali, ‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud, ‘Umar, Zayd Ibn Thabit, Abu Darda and Ubay Ibn K’ab (رضي الله عنهم)
. Then I studied these 6 individuals and found that knowledge is concentrated in 2 of them: ‘Ali and ‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud (رضي الله عنهم) .

Zayd Ibn Thabit (رضي الله عنه) said:

The Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم) of Allah asked me, “Do you know syriac language? I said,”No.” He said,”Go and learn it.” And I learnt it in 17 days.

[Siyar A’lam an Nubalaa 2/429]

Masrooq said:

The knowledge of Prophet’s (صلى الله عليه وسلم) companions was with 6 persons: ‘Umar, ‘Ali, Ibn Mas’ood, Zayd Ibn Thabit, Ubay Ibn Ka’b and Abu Musa al Ash’ari (رضي الله عنهم).

[Tadheed al Kamal 6/436]

Ibn ‘Abdil Barr said:

They said Zayd Ibn Thabit (رضي الله عنه) excelled others in two things, the Qur’an and knowledge of the law of inheritance.

[Al-Istee’aab 3/539]

Rasulullah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:

The most knowledgeable person among my ummah in regard to the knowledge of the law of inheritance is Zayd Ibn Thabit (رضي الله عنه).

[Al Hakim]

Ahmad Ibn ‘Abdullah Al ‘Ijli said:

People are upon the recitation of Qur’an as compiled by Zayd (رضي الله عنه).  They are upon the knowledge of the law of inheritance as recorded by Zayd (رضي الله عنه).

[Siyar A’lam an Nubala]

‘Umar Ibn Khattab (رضي الله عنه) delivered a speech at Jaabiyah in which he said:

Whoever wants to ask about the law of inheritance should go to Zayd Ibn Thabit (رضي الله عنه); Whoever wants to know about fiqh should go to Mu’adh Ibn Jabal (رضي الله عنه)  and whoever wants to ask for money should come to me. For Allah has made me the store keeper and dispenser.

[Siyar A’lam an Nubala]

Salim said:

We were with Ibn ‘Umar  (رضي الله عنه) the day Zayd Ibn Thabit  (رضي الله عنه) died and I said, ‘The people’s scholar has died today.’ Ibn ‘Umar  (رضي الله عنه) said, “May Allah have mercy upon him. He was the people’s scholar during the caliphate of  ‘Umar (رضي الله عنه) . ‘Umar  (رضي الله عنه) sent other scholars to all over the regions and prohibited them from giving  verdicts based on individual opinions. But he made Zayd  (رضي الله عنه) stay in Madinah so that he could provide Fatwa for its people.’

Letter of Zayd Ibn Thabit رضي الله عنه

leave a comment »

Zayd Ibn Thabit رضي الله عنهwrote the following words to Ubayy Ibn K’abرضي الله عنه

‎”Allah made the tongue an interpreter of the heart. He made the heart a vessel that submits to the tongue. If the heart had been created at the side of the tongue, the word would be harmonious and the tongue would not have any error or def…ect. There is no discernement for a person whose tongue is not lead by his heart. If a person measures his word against his deed, the purpose for which he uttered the word will be achieved. Have you ever seen a stingier person than the one who is miserly with the deed?! This is because he puts his tongue before his heart. Will anyone respect a person who does not keep his words?! The one who sees imperfection of others and neglects his own imperfections is like someone who takes upon himself what is not required of him

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْمُثَنَّى حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الْوَهَّابِ بْنُ عَبْدِ الْمَجِيدِ حَدَّثَنَا
خَالِدٌ الْحَذَّاءُ عَنْ أَبِي قِلَابَةَ عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ
أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ أَرْحَمُ أُمَّتِي بِأُمَّتِي أَبُو بَكْرٍ وَأَشَدُّهُمْ فِي دِينِ اللَّهِ عُمَرُ وَأَصْدَقُهُمْ حَيَاءً عُثْمَانُ وَأَقْضَاهُمْ عَلِيُّ بْنُ أَبِي طَالِبٍ وَأَقْرَؤُهُمْ لِكِتَابِ اللَّهِ أُبَيُّ بْنُ كَعْبٍ وَأَعْلَمُهُمْ بِالْحَلَالِ وَالْحَرَامِ مُعَاذُ بْنُ جَبَلٍ وَأَفْرَضُهُمْ زَيْدُ بْنُ ثَابِتٍ أَلَا وَإِنَّ لِكُلِّ أُمَّةٍ أَمِينًا وَأَمِينُ هَذِهِ الْأُمَّةِ أَبُو عُبَيْدَةَ بْنُ الْجَرَّاحِ

Anas bin Malik relates that the Messenger of Allah said, “The most merciful of my Ummah towards my Ummah is Abu Bakr; the most severe of them in the religion of Allah is ‘Umar; the most modest of them is ‘Uthman; the most knoweldgeable of them concerning judgments is ‘Ali bin Abu Talib; the most knowledgeable of them concerning the Book of Allah is Ubay bin Ka’b; the most knowledgeable of them concerning the permissible and the prohibited is Mu’adh bin Jabal; and the most knowledgeable of them concerning obligatory duties is Zaid bin Thabit. Indeed, for every Ummah there is a trustworthy person and the trustworthy person of this Ummah is Abu ‘Ubaidah ibn al-Jarrah.”

(Sunan ibn Majah)
