Question

What is the status of the Hadeeth which recommends that the person who finds it hard to make a living should go to Oman?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His slave and messenger.

 

This Hadeeth was narrated by At-Tabraani  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him on the authority of Shurahbeel Al-Jafi who attributed it directly to the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. 

Al-Haythami  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him judged this Hadeeth to be Dhaeef. Al-Albaani  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him had the same opinion.

Another narration reads: Whoever faces difficulties in trade should go to Oman. [At-Tabaraani]

Al-Albaani  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him judged this narration also as Dha‘eef.

Allaah Knows best.
