8 There is dispute over the authenticity of the narration due to the,mention of "the companions of Mu'adh" in the chain. Though some scholars of hadith have claimed this means that there is an unknown person in the chain, other,such as Imam ibn Qayyim argue that all the companions of Mu'adh were known to be trustworthy and the fact that the narration mentions them as a collective does not weaken the chain and can in fact be considered to strengthen it.
