The Angels On Laylatul-Qadr – Hadith as-Saheehah
*IMAAM ABOO DAAWOOD AT-TAYAALISEE-rahimahullaah (d. 204 H) reported in his “Musnad” (no. 2545):
“`Imraan narrated to us: from Qataadah: from Aboo Maymooonah: from Aboo Hurairah: that Allaah”s Messenger (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said, concerning Laylatul-Qadr (the Night of Decree):
<< Laylatul-Qadr is the twenty seventh or the twenty ninth night. The Angels that night upon the earth are more than the number of the pebbles >>. “
*Shaikh al-Albaanee -rahimahullaah- said in “as-Saheehah” (no. 2205): “Reported by at-Tayaalisee in his “Musnad” (no. 2545), and from him by Ahmad (2/519), and likewise by Ibn Khuzaymah in his “Saheeh” (2/223): from `Imraan al-Qattaan: from Qataadah: from Aboo Maymoonah: from Aboo Hurairah marfoo`an.
I say: And this is a hasan chain of narration; and al-Haafiz remained silent about it in “al-Fath” (4/209).”
