AL-ALBANI’S WEAKENING OF
SOME OF IMAM BUKHARI AND MUSLIM’S AHADITH.
Al-Albani has said in “Sharh al-Aqeedah at-Tahaweeah, pg. 27-28″ (8th edition, Maktab al-Islami) by Shaykh Ibn Abi al-Izz al-Hanafi (Rahimahullah), that any Hadith coming from the Sahih collections of al-Bukhari and Muslim is Sahih, not because they were narrated by Bukhari and Muslim, but because the Ahadith are in fact correct. But he clearly contradicts himself, since he has weakened Ahadith from Bukhari and Muslim himself! Now let us consider this information in the light of elaboration :-
SELECTED TRANSLATIONS FROM VOLUME 1
No 1: (*Pg. 10 no. 1 )
Hadith: The Prophet (Sall Allahu alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallim) said: “Allah says I will be an opponent to 3 persons on the day of resurrection: (a) One who makes a covenant in my Name but he proves treacherous, (b) One who sells a free person (as a slave) and eats the price (c) And one who employs a laborer and gets the full work done by him, but doesn’t pay him his wages.” [Bukhari no 2114-Arabic version, or see the English version 3/430 pg 236].
Al-Albani said that this Hadith was DAEEF in “Daeef al-Jami wa Ziyadatuh, 4/111 no. 4054″. Little does he know that this Hadith has been narrated by Ahmad and Bukhari from Abu Hurayra (Allah be pleased with him)!!
No 2: (*Pg. 10 no. 2 )
Hadith: “Sacrifice only a grown up cow unless it is difficult for you, in which case sacrifice a ram.” [Muslim no. 1963-Arabic edition, or see the English version 3/4836 pg. 1086].
Al-Albani said that this Hadith was DAEEF in “Daeef al-Jami wa Ziyadatuh, 6/64 no. 6222.” Although this Hadith has been narrated by Imam’s Ahmad, Muslim, Abu Dawood, Nisai and Ibn Majah from Jaabir (Allah be pleased with him)!!
No 3: (*Pg. 10 no. 3 )
Hadith: “Amongst the worst people in Allah’s sight on the Day of Judgement will be the man who makes love to his wife and she to him, and he divulges her secret.” [Muslim no. 1437- Arabic edition].
Al-Albani claims that this Hadith is DAEEF in “Daeef al-Jami wa Ziyadatuh, 2/197 no. 2005.” Although it has been narrated by Muslim from Abi Sayyed (Allah be pleased with him)!!
No 4: (*Pg. 10 no. 4 )
Hadith: “If someone woke up at night (for prayers) let him begin his prayers with 2 light rak’ats.” [Muslim no. 768]. Al-Albani stated that this Hadith was DAEEF in “Daeef al-Jami wa Ziyadatuh, 1/213 no. 718.” Although it is narrated by Muslim and Ahmad from Abu Hurayra (may Allah be pleased with him)!!
No 5: (*Pg. 11 no. 5 )
Hadith: “You will rise with shining foreheads and shining hands and feet on the Day of Judgement by completing Wudhu properly. . . . . . . .” [Muslim no. 246].
Al-Albani claims it is DAEEF in “Daeef al-Jami wa Ziyadatuh, 2/14 no. 1425.” Although it has been narrated by Muslim from Abu Hurayra (Allah be pleased with him)!!
No 6: (*Pg. 11 no. 6 )
Hadith: “The greatest trust in the sight of Allah on the Day of Judgement is the man who doesn’t divulge the secrets between him and his wife.” [Muslim no’s 124 and 1437]
Al-Albani claims it is DAEEF in “Daeef al-Jami wa Ziyadatuh, 2/192 no. 1986.” Although it has been narrated by Muslim, Ahmad and Abu Dawood from Abi Sayyed (Allah be pleased with him)!!
No 7: (*Pg. 11 no. 7 )
Hadith: “If anyone READS the last ten verses of Surah al-Kahf he will be saved from the mischief of the Dajjal.” [Muslim no. 809].
Al-Albani said that this Hadith was DAEEF in “Daeef al-Jami wa Ziyadatuh, 5/233 no. 5772.” NB- The word used by Muslim is MEMORIZED and not READ as al-Albani claimed; what an awful mistake! This Hadith has been narrated by Muslim, Ahmad and Nisai from Abi Darda (Allah be pleased with him)!! (Also recorded by Imam Nawawi in “Riyadh us-Saliheen, 2/1021″ of the English ed’n).
No 8: (*Pg. 11 no. 8 )
Hadith: “The Prophet (Sall Allahu alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallim) had a horse called al-Laheef.” [Bukhari, see Fath al-Bari of Hafiz Ibn Hajar 6/58 no. 2855]. But Al-Albani said that this Hadith was DAEEF in “Daeef al-Jami wa Ziyadatuh, 4/208 no. 4489.” Although it has been narrated by Bukhari from Sahl ibn Sa’ad (Allah be pleased with him)!!!
Shaykh Saqqaf said: “This is only anger from anguish, little from a lot and if it wasn’t for the fear of lengthening and boring the reader, I would have mentioned many other examples from al-Albani’s books whilst reading them. Imagine what I would have found if I had traced everything he wrote?”
AL-ALBANI’S INADEQUACY IN RESEARCH (* Vol. 1 pg. 20)
Shaykh Saqqaf said: “The strange and amazing thing is that Shaykh al-Albani misquoted many great Hadith scholars and disregards them by his lack of knowledge, either directly or indirectly! He crowns himself as an unbeatable source and even tries to imitate the great scholars by using such terms like “Lam aqif ala sanadih“, which means “I could not find the chain of narration”, or using similar phrases! He also accuses some of the best memorizers of Hadith for lack of attention, even though he is the one best described by that!” Now for some examples to prove our point:
No 9 : (* Pg. 20 no. 1 )
Al-Albani said in “Irwa al-Ghalil, 6/251 no. 1847″ (in connection to a narration from Ali): “I could not find the sanad.”
Shaykh Saqqaf said: “Ridiculous! If this al-Albani was any scholar of Islam, then he would have known that this Hadith can be found in “Sunan al-Bayhaqi, 7/121″ :- Narrated by Abu Sayyed ibn Abi Amarah, who said that Abu al-Abbas Muhammad ibn Yaqoob who said to us that Ahmad ibn Abdal Hamid said that Abu Usama from Sufyan from Salma ibn Kahil from Mu’awiya ibn Soayd who said, ‘I found this in my fathers book from Ali (Allah be pleased with him).’”
No 10 : (* Pg. 21 no. 2 )
Al-Albani said in ‘Irwa al-Ghalil, 3/283′: Hadith of Ibn Umar ‘Kisses are usury,’ I could not find the sanad.”
Shaykh Saqqaf said: “This is outrageously wrong for surely this is mentioned in ‘Fatawa al-Shaykh ibn Taymiyya al-Misriyah (3/295)’: ‘Harb said Obaidullah ibn Mu’az said to us, my father said to me that Soayd from Jiballa who heard Ibn Umar (Allah be pleased with him) as saying: Kisses are usury.’ And these narrators are all authentic according to Ibn Taymiyya!”
No 11 : (* Pg. 21 no. 3 )
Hadith of Ibn Masood (Allah be pleased with him): “The Qur’an was sent down in 7 dialects. Everyone of its verses has an explicit and implicit meaning and every interdiction is clearly defined.” Al-Albani stated in his checking of “Mishkat ul-Masabih, 1/80 no. 238″ that the author of Mishkat concluded many Ahadith with the words “Narrated in Sharh us-Sunnah,” but when he examined the chapter on Ilm and in Fadail al-Qur’an he could not find it!
Shaykh Saqqaf said: “The great scholar has spoken! Wrongly as usual. I wish to say to this fraud that if he is seriously interested in finding this Hadith we suggest he looks in the chapter entitled ‘Al-Khusama fi al-Qur’an’ from Sharh-us-Sunnah (1/262), and narrated by Ibn Hibban in his Sahih (no. 74), Abu Ya’ala in his Musnad (no.5403), Tahawi in Sharh al-Mushkil al-Athar (4/172), Bazzar (3/90 Kashf al-Asrar) and Haythami has mentioned it in Majmoo’a al-Zawaid (7/152) and he has ascribed it to Bazzar, Abu Ya’ala and Tabarani in al-Awsat who said that the narrators are trustworthy.”

I dont understand why are you posting these topics. Do you have something against these hanabli scholars.
as-Saqqaf is a hypocrite, as he is the one who rejects tens of narrations by al-Bukhari and Muslim (such as the hadith of the jariyah saying that Allah is in the sky, which is found in 'Sahih Muslim') simply because they do not conform to his innovated beliefs.
Many examples of his lies and academic dishonesty were listed by Sulayman al-'Alwan in 'al-Kishaf 'an Dalalat as-Saqqaf.'

Akhi i haven´t found in first article of that search page regarding the whole issue. My english is not so good. so it would better if u could paste thsoe points for me step by step. Normally the major muhaddiths and great scholars are agreed that hadiths of muslim are sahih. so it would be good if the claim of those words where the writer of this articel point out, that sheikh albani pointed some hadiths as dae´f are true or lie.

Well we dont worry about muslim and bukhari because majority of ummah agree on this that hadith are sahih, but if sheikh albani has other opinion, he can have. whats wrong in that?
PS: jazakallah akhi ali al hanafi to bring this point as i had also this misconception regarding sheikh albani. Hope some brothers will help me to get correct infos about this misconceptions.
In his Kitab al-Tatabbu', al-Daraqutni argues for the weakness of 78 hadiths in al-Bukhari, 100 in Muslim, and 32 in both based on isnad and matn criticism.

dont worry i didnt shoot myself in the foot , its the opinion of a scholar not my personal opinion , i do think Shaikh ad-Daraqutni had much more ilm then ''Albani''
