Do you Know who the Nameless Man was Here?

Taken from Ilifsah ‘an al-M’jam min eedahil-Ghamid was-Mubhim by Ibn Qastalanee (686 AH)

Translated by Abu Aaliyah Abdullah ibn Dwight Battle

Many scholars in the past wrote books about people whose names weren't mentioned. Scholars like Abdul Ghani,
Khateeb Al-Baghdadi, Ibn Atheer and Imam Dhahabi (may Allah have mercy on them all) wrote books that deal with
nameless people in the texts of Hadeeth, or people about whom certain verses were revealed about. This is a section
in the field of Hadeeth known as " Mubham" or nameless characters.

1. The man who came in the masjid while the Prophet (‫)صلﱠى ﷲُ َعلَ ْي ِه َو َسلﱠم‬
َ was giving the
Khutbah and was asked did you pray. He said, “No “The Prophet then said, “stand up and
pray. was Sulayk ibn Amr
“Jabir (may Allah be pleased with him) said that once a man, came to Friday Prayer while the Messenger of Allah
(‫صلﱠى ﷲُ َعلَ ْي ِه َو َسلﱠم‬

َ ) asked him, "Did you pray?" "No", he
answered. Then Prophet (‫صلﱠى ﷲُ َعلَ ْي ِه َو َسلﱠم‬َ ) said to him, "Stand up and pray ." [Bukhari 931 and Muslim 597]

Once the Prophet (‫صلﱠى ﷲ ُ َعلَ ْي ِه َو َسلﱠم‬
َ ) entered the mosque, a man came in, offered the prayer and greeted the Prophet
‫ﱠ‬ ‫ﱠ‬
(‫صلى ﷲُ َعلَ ْي ِه َو َسلم‬َ ). The Prophet (‫صلﱠى ﷲُ َعلَ ْي ِه َو َسلﱠم‬
َ ) returned his greeting and said to him, "Go back and pray again for
you have not prayed." The man offered the prayer again, came back and greeted the Prophet. (‫صلﱠى ﷲُ َعلَ ْي ِه َو َسلﱠم‬ َ ). He
said to him thrice, "Go back and pray again for you have not prayed." The man said, "By Him Who has sent you with
