than you in the sight of Allah Taala, and that we only think good regarding

From the above we understand that although the Hadeeth of Sunan Ibni
Maajah may have some be weakness in it, there are many other narrations to
support it. Thus according to the principle of the Muhadditheen, this narration
will no more remain weak. Apart from this, the companions of Rasulullaah

(sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam) are also reported to have said the very same
Imaam Tirmidhi (279 A.H.) narrates it in his Al Jaami (#2151) and Haafidh Ibnu
Hibbaan (354 A.H.) in his Saheeh (#5763) from Abdullaah Ibn Umar
(radiyallaahu anhuma) with an authentic chain of transmission.
The same statement is also reported from Abdullaah Ibn Abbaas (radiyallaahu
anhuma) in Musannaf Ibni Abi Shaybah (#28327) and from Abdullaah Ibn Amr
(radiyallaahu anhuma) in Musannaf Abdir Razzaaq (#9186).
Explanation of the Hadeeth:
Allaamah As Sindi (1138 A.H.) writes in his marginal notes of on Sunan Ibn
Maajah, (This is so) because the Kabah only received its sacredness due to
the Mumineen (believers). Allah Taala says,

( -)

Verily the first House (of worship) appointed for mankind was that at Makkah,
full of blessing, and a means of guidance for the worlds (Al Imraan: 96)
