What is the complete reference including volume and hadith number for hadith that states wearing amulet is shirk in Musnad Ahmed?

From Wikipedia: "An amulet is an object whose most important characteristic is the power ascribed to it to protect its owner from danger or harm."

  • Taweez and amulet is different, as the people who came to prophet were kafir and wearing amulate made according to there faith. taweez is different I haven't found any hadith witch says not to wear taweez made with Quranic verses, its permissible in hanafi fiqh to wear taweez and its ijma of ahle ilm & fiqh.. you can further see the details here alahazrat.net/islam/taweez.php – Ali786 Apr 21 '17 at 11:00

I assume the hadith is what you are looking for:

  1. It was narrated that Uqbah ibn Aamir said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) say: “Whoever wears an amulet, may Allah not fulfil his need, and whoever wears a sea-shell, may Allah not give him peace.” (Masnud Ahmed 16951.) classed as da’eef(weak) by Shaykh al-Albaani in Da’eef al-Jaami’, 5703

  2. It was narrated from Uqbah ibn Aamir al-Juhani that a group came to the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) [to swear their allegiance (bay’ah) to him]. He accepted the bay’ah of nine of them but not of one of them. They said, “O Messenger of Allah, you accepted the bay’ah of nine but not of this one.” He said, “He is wearing an amulet.” The man put his hand (in his shirt) and took it off, then he (the Prophet (pbuh)) accepted his bay’ah. He said, ‘Whoever wears an amulet has committed shirk.” [Masnud Ahmed 16969] classed as saheeh(Correct) by Shaykh al-Albaani in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah, 492

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Brother, the complete hadith you are referring to is:

It was narrated from ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Aamir al-Juhani that a group came to the Messenger of Allaah (ﷺ) [to swear their allegiance (bay’ah) to him]. He accepted the bay’ah of nine of them but not of one of them. They said, “O Messenger of Allaah, you accepted the bay’ah of nine but not of this one.” He said, “He is wearing an amulet.” The man put his hand (in his shirt) and took it off, then he (ﷺ) accepted his bay’ah. He ﷺ said, ‘Whoever wears an amulet has committed shirk.”

    It is best if you quote the hadith from your reference and provide an English translation (as this is an English-only site). See How to Answer for more information. – III-AK-III Mar 27 at 14:39
  • I am unable to find English translation version of that book. I can only locate up to volume 3 in English. Once I fined it I'll add it here. – Sasuke_Uchiha Mar 31 at 1:22
