Assalamu 'alaykum !

I see a lot of time the name of Husayn Ibn 'Alwan in zaydi ahadeeth books. Can we have a little biography and know how his fiability is considered by zaydi scholars ?

wa alaykum as salaam wa rahmatullah!

Thank you for your question! Hussein bin Alwaan bin Qudaama is a Kufan narrator of hadith who died in 210 AH. He narrated from Abu Khalid al-Wasiti. Imam Ahmed bin Isa bin Zayd (as) narrated from him. He also narrated from Imam as-Saadiq (as) as well as al-'Amash. His narrations from Hisham bin Urwa are criticised by Sunni traditionalists. However, our imams such as Imam Ahmed bin Isa, an-Naasir, al-Mu'ayyad Billah and Abu Taalib, upon all of them be peace, have narrated from him which demonstrates his reliability at least in Zaydi thought. The late Allama Badrudeen al-Houthi in his Tahreer al-Afkaar addressed the Sunni criticisms of him and responded to them.

And Allah knows best!

Thank you very much for your response !

I have another question : if an Imam (of knowledge or great Imam) narrated a hadeeth, all the narrators of the hadith are automatically considered as reliable ? Or sometime is it possible that Imams narrated weak ahadeeth at the end of a demonstration, after authentic ahadeeth, as sunni scholars do ?

Thank you for your question!

As for the narrators of a hadith, it is possible to have a weak narrator from an imam. An imam of knowledge is considered reliable since he is an imam.
