Maslamah bin Abdullah bin Urwa is a narrator who is found in Tabaqat al-Kubra 2/271 here:-


A similar narrator with a slightly different name is also mentioned in Sunan Abu Dawud. His name is Maslama bin Abdullah Juhani. He can be found here:-


But the main question is: are these both narrators (Maslama bin Adullah bin Urwa and Maslama bin Abdullah Juhani) the same person/narrator?


They are not the same apparently.

The longer name of Maslamah ibn Abdullah Al-Juhani is mentioned in Tahzeeb Al-Tahzeeb here. Namely, his grandfather's name is Raba'ee, not Urwa.

His full name would be Maslamah ibn Abdullah ibn Raba'ee Al-Juhani.

  • What is the status of the narrator Maslamah bin abdullah bin Urwa? Is he Thiqa (Trustworthy)? – Ren Jul 13 '20 at 20:34
  • @Ren That would be a different question. And I have no idea. – The Z Jul 13 '20 at 20:39
  • @Ren Maslamah ibn 'Abdullah ibn 'Urwa doesn't seem to appear in Tahdheeb a-Tahdheeb which doesn't really surprise me as only a few Scholars (found only a single one "ibn Hebban" so far) seem to identify him as a "known" narrator and person. – Medi1Saif Jul 14 '20 at 8:17
  • @Medi1Saif - I think he is trustworthy. He has narrated many narrations. One is also found in Mustadrik Al-Sahihain. He is acceptable according to THIS SOURCE – Ren Jul 15 '20 at 20:40

    @Ren ibn Hebban is among the most lenient scholars in jarh wa-ta'adil. – Medi1Saif Jul 15 '20 at 21:12
