[Mustadrak of Haakim 5, from Hadhrat Abdullaah bin Amr (رَضِىَ ٱللهُ تَعَالٰى عَنه)]
Five items Nabi (sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) would always carry
Is the following narration correct?
Imam Tabarani and Hafiz Khatib Al Baghdadi (rahimahumallah) have recorded this narration of Sayyidah 'Aaishah (radiyallahu 'anha).
(Al Mu'jamul Awsat, Hadith: 5238. Refer: Fathul Bari, Hadith: 5924)
Despite one narrator of this chain being declared weak, the narration iscorroborated. Hafiz Ibn Hajar (rahimahullah) has cited several supporting narrations.
(Fathul Bari, Hadith: 5924)
The narration is therefore acceptable and may be quoted.
Sayyidah 'Aaishah (radiyallahu 'anha) says, 'Rasulullah (sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam) never left five things, whether he was on travel or at home; a mirror, antimony [kuhl], a comb, a stick/metal comb [used for scratching] and a miswak.
And Allah Ta'ala Knows best.
