September 6, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Al-Haafidh Ibn Katheer – Allaah have mercy upon him – reports the following incident in his tafseer of Surah Al-Jinn, verse 11:

Ahmad b. Sulaymaan al-Najjaad said in his Amaalee: … Abu Mu’aawiyah said, I heard Al-A’mash say,

“ ‘A jinni once came to us and I asked him:

what is the favorite food amongst you?’

He replied, ‘Rice.’

So we gave some to them and I saw handfuls of rice being lifted and I couldn’t see anyone [picking them up].

I asked, ‘Do these false desires (bid’ah) that are amongst us exist amongst you?’

He replied, ‘Yes.’

I asked, ‘How are the Raafidah amongst you?’

He replied, ‘The worst of us.’”

Ibn Katheer said, ‘I presented this chain of narration to our Shaykh, Al-Haafidh Abu Al-Hajjaaj Al-Mizzee and he said, ‘This chain of narration is saheeh all the way to Al-A’mash.’’
