ما أدري، ليس لي به علم
“I don’t know, I don’t have the knowledge about him”
[ Su'alaat Ibn al-Junayd (614)]

After the tawtheeq of Jumhoor, the slight criticism and unawareness of Imaam Ibn Ma’een does not harm

Note: The Jarh of Imaam Ibn Abdul Hakam on Imaam al-Humaydee is not proven because of Abu Ja’far as-Sakri in the chain (who is unknown).

Books of Imaam Humaydee:

Musnad al-Humaydee & Usool as-Sunnah etc

Conclusion:


Imaam Humaydee is unanimously agreed upon to be an Imaam, Hujjah, Thiqah, and Faqeeh.
