Is there a hadith that says, the best of believers are those who observe the sun,moon and the stars for the remembrance of Allah.

I remember hearing something like that and could someone please clarify this for me.

  • I have never heard such a hadith. But, it might be similar to the verse 3:190-191

Asalaam alaikum

This Hadith is reported under observing nature's wonders to remember Allah in al-sunan al-kubra by imam bayhaqi.

Here is the narration;

Ibn Abi Awfa reported: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, “Verily, among the best servants of Allah are those who observe the sun, the moon, the stars, and the shades for the remembrance of Allah.”

Classification:

This Hadith has been classed Hasan li gayrihi (fair, due to external evidence) by sheikh Albani.

Reference

Al-sunan al-kubra by imam bayhaqi

At-Targhib wa't-Tarhib by sheikh Albani

Note imam nasai also has a book titled by the same name Al-sunan al-kubra, not to be confused with.

May Allah the mighty and sublime grant us mercy and guide us to the straight path.

Allah knows best

The hadith appears in Al-Mustadrak (1/115) with a Sahih Isnad, according to Al-Hakim, and Imam Dhahabi agrees.

  • Do you have an English version of the link that you have shared for that Hadith?, Jazaakahllah Dec 13, 2021 at 15:45
  • English version should be within the post. Not everybody speaks Arabic.
