Origin of the tashahhud : a Heavenly Conversation ?

  • Status : NO SOURCE

It is often reported from people that :

The Attahiyat was a conversation held by Allah and His Beloved Muhammad (peace be upon him) along with the angels of the night of Miraj. Learn more about this great event and this great conversation to motivate yourself toward Salah.

There is no mention of this in any of the books of hadith.
It is very famous, even quoted in a number of books of fiqh, however no one has mentioned a primary source for it from main ahadith books.

Sources go back to al-Rawd al-Unuf wherein the author, Allâmah ‘Abd al-Rahmân al-Suhaylî (rahimahullah, an illustrous scholar) also does not mention the chain of transmission.

It is not permissible to attribute something to Allah Ta’ala and/or Nabi al-Mustafa without proof. And with respect, if such and such big shaykh related the story is not a proof, error is human.

We must therefore NOT quote this narration, neither should we believe that it occurred until a chain is produced.

If anybody has a chain of narration for this, he may bring it forward so that the hadith masters can analyse what could not be found in a thousand of years.

  1. Jazak Allahu khairan for BEAUTIFULLY posting all the sources in one page. I’ve been looking for its authenticity because I was forwarded the very message on WhatsApp.

    May Allah accept from us and you : )
