alamu Alaikum Shaikh , the Famous collection used by the Tabligh Jamaat called : Fazail Amal < is this an Authentic Collection? can we take our ilm from it? i heard there are scholars (especially salafis) that say that it contains many weak ahadith! etc , what is your view on this matter?
Wa alaykumus salaam
Many an enemy have tried to defame this work of the great muhassith moulana muhammed zakarriyah khandelwi rahimahulaah. The strangest thing is that they will regard his work likebazlul majhoodand awjazul masaalik the sharh of mu’atta imam malik as authentic works but they will reject the condition of the fadhaail a’mal. This stems down to the weakness of understanding the classification of ahaadeeth and what will constitute a weak hadeeth to be come classed as a hasan hadeeth. It is part of thes cience of the usool of hadeeth that if there is a weak hadeeth which is narrated by many various chains and narrated by different sahaaba then that hadeeth will be regarded as a hasan hadeeth. Therefore their claim is baseless. Also according to many muhadditheen A WEAK HADEETH is acceptable for the purpose of virtue and reward. Another thing is that do not categorize a weak hadeeth as a fabrication as is the habit of the pseudo salafi. Firstly let us learn the terminologies in accordance to the scholars of the field rather then make self opinionated verdicts on issues we do not understand. Hafeedh ibn hajar asqalaani has written his famous book nukhbatul fikr on this topic which is quite concise and clear concerning weak ahaadeeth and how the become hasan li ghairihi
