Narration from “Shuabul imaan” by Beyhaki:

8 narrators:

1) Irbad ibn Sariyah (may Allah be pleased with him)

2) Khaleed ibn Madaan. Ibn Madaan didn’t hear from Irbad, but we have another chain from above, where they connected by Abdurrahman ibn Amr and Hujr ibn Hujr.

3) Buhayr ibn Sad. We talked about him before.

4) Moawiya ibn Yahya ash-Shame.
Abu Zurah said /thiqat/. Abu Dawud, Duhaym, ibn Main, Nasai said he’s not bad (1).

5) Muhammad ibn Mubarak ibn Yala al-Qurashe.
Ijle and Abu Khateem said he was /thiqat/. Ibn Hibban mentioned in “Thuqat” (2).

6) Abbas ibn Abdullah ibn Abu Isaa al-Wasete.
Abu Bakr al-Khateeb and Daraqutni said he was /thiqat/. Ibn Hibban mentioned in “Thuqat” (3).
