Chapter 3, Hadith & Seerah, The Authority of Sunnah / Wednesday, August 27th, 2008

Jabir ibn Abdullah is one of the famous companions of the Holy Prophet (SAWS) who has narrated a large number of Ahadith. It is established that he had compiled the Ahadith in two scripts. One of them contained a detailed account of the last Hajj performed by the Holy Prophet (SAWS). The full text of this script is found in the Sahih of Muslim wherein he has described even the minute details of the last Hajj.

His second script contained other Ahadith relating to different subjects.

Qatadah the famous pupil of Jabir says:

“I remember the script of Jabir more than I remember Surah Al-Baqarah of the Holy Quran (Tahzeeb ut Tahzeeb).

Reference to this script is also found in the Musannaf of Abdurrazzaq where some Ahadith of this script are reported.
