ar-Rowdh ad-Daanee fil-Fawaa.id al-Hadeethiyyah
Shaykh al-Albaanee (rahima-hullaah) mentioned:
And the saying of some of the muhaddithoon (scholars of hadeeth) regarding some hadeeth:
‘Its rijaal (male narrators) are those of the narrators of the Saheeh [of al-Bukhaaree],’ or:
‘Its rijaal are thiqaat,’ or that which is similar, then these statements do not equate to the term:
‘Its isnaad (chain of narration) is saheeh,’
…as this [statement] assumes the presence of all the conditions of authenticity [of a hadeeth] from which include: free from any defect, which is different from the first statement.
Certainly, this does not affirm it [the authenticity of the hadeeth], rather, it affirms just one condition and that is the uprightness of the rijaal. And with this, the authenticity [of the hadeeth] is not affirmed, as is not hidden [from the people of hadeeth].
