- Status : FABRICATED
Its is often said about the companion Bilal ibn Rabah al-Habashi (Radhi Allahu ‘anhu) that
It is reported that Prophet Muhammad [Sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam] said, “The ‘seen’ of Bilal is ‘sheen’ in the hearing of God,” meaning that God does not see the physical manifestation; He appreciates the purity of heart.
It is a famous fabrication mentioned in virtually every book on Mawdu’ ahadith.
In fact, Sayyiduna Bilal (RA) had no difficulty at all, rather he was very eloquent (fasih) and called the adhan loud and clear, which is why he was selected by the Noble Prophet ﷺ for the task.
Ibn Kathir, Mulla ‘Ali Al-Qari, Al-Shawkani amongst others have declared this narration to be a fabrication.
