Reports Concerning the Number of Rakat the Prophet Prayed

Ibn Abbas’s Report and Its Weakness

Al-Hafidh ibn Hajar comments: “As for what was recorded by Ibn Abu Shaybah, from the hadith of Ibn Abbas that ‘Allah’s Messenger used to pray in Ramadan twenty rakat and witr,’ it has a weak isnad; furthermore it contradicts Aisha’s hadith in the two Sahihs.  And she knows better than other people about the affairs of the Prophet at night.’” [Fath ul-Bari]

Al-Hafidh az-Zayla’i stated, “The hadith of Ibn Abbas is very weak, as stated by as-Suyuti.  It’s problem arises from Abu Shaybah Ibrahim Bin Uthman, whose narrations are rejected.”

Al-Bukhari said, “The scholars of hadith do not transmit his narrations.”

Ibn Main said, “He is not trustworthy.”

Al-Jawzajani said, “He is deposed.”
