Did Abu Huraira Used to play chess?
« on: August 06, 2014, 09:23:20 AM »
In a Shia Book Written by Abdul Hussain Sharaf udr din Amili named "Abu Huraira",
he wrote that Abu Huraira used to play chess..
While searching i came across two opposite opinions
first sh. Saleh al Munajjid that this Hadith  isfabrication and a lie on Abu huraira radi Allah Anho while sh. JF Hadad said that it is established that Abu Huraira radi Allah anho Used to play chess.
Can any one post Arabic text and Chain here and analyse that narration .
JazakAllah hu Khaira

No chain is provided in the book. If it was narrated authentically from Abu Huraira, then it would not lower his status, but rather, strengthen the opinion of those that say that it is halal, since there is no prophetic hadith that prohibits it.

Assalaamu `Alaykum,

There are conflicting reports regarding Abu Hurayrah and Chess. There is one saying, with no chain, that says Abu Hurayrah played Chess. Then, Abu Hurayrah is the narrator of a hadith that says that the Prophet passed by people playing chess and he said la`nah on the one who plays chess, this hadith is also weak. Wallaahu A`lim

Wa `Alaykum Assalaam
