And it was narrated from ‘Ali (may Allaah be pleased with him) that those who carry the Throne are four angels whose feet touch the rock that is beneath the seventh earth the distance of five hundred years’ travel. Please explain to us.
This book is not reliable. It includes fabricated (mawdoo’) and weak (da’eef) ahaadeeth that cannot be relied on – including these two hadeeths. There is no basis for these hadeeth, rather they are fabricated ahaadeeth that are falsely attributed to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). So we should not rely on this book or similar books which include both good and bad, and contain fabricated and weak ahaadeeth. The scholars have worked hard to protect the ahaadeeth of the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and they have explained which are sound and which are not. So the believer should rely on the good and useful books such as al-Saheehayn, the four books of al-Sunan, Muntaqa’l-Akhbaar by Ibn Taymiyah, Riyadh al-Saaliheen by al-Nawawi, Buloogh al-Maraam by al-Haafiz ibn Hajar, ‘Umdat al-Hadeeth by al-Haafiz ‘Abd al-Ghaniy ibn ‘Abd al-Waahid al-Maqdisi, and other similar useful books that are regarded as reliable by the scholars.
