Concerning the Hadeeth ''Every Important Matter''

To what degree is this Hadeeth authentic: كل أمر ذي بال لا يبدأ ببسم الله فهو أبتر، أقطع، أجذم "Every important matter that does not begin by Allaah's name is cut off, mutilated."

Ibn Hibban[1] and others[2] have narrated this Hadeeth through two or more different chains. Some scholars of Hadeeth have ruled that it is weak[3], while what appears to be more correct is that its level is Hasan due to other supporting narrations. And Allaah is the facilitation to do what is right.


[1] Ibn Hibban no. 1 and 2

[2] Ibn Majah no. 1894, Al-Baihaqi 3/5559 and Abu Dawud no. 4840

[3] Dha'ifu-Jami As-Saghir Lil-Albani no. 4216, Ad-Dha'ifah no. 902 and Al-Erwaa no. 2
