6-    Imaam Ibn Adee said: “Sa’eed bin Abdur Rahmaan has some good Ghareeb narrations, and I hope they are Mustaqeem, and he only erred in some things according to me, he would make a Mawqoof narration Marfoo and connect the Mursal narration, he did not do it deliberately.”
[Al-Kaamil: 4/456]

8-    Imaam Abu Awaanah has narrated from him in his Saheeh

[Ikmaal Tahdheeb al-Kamaal by Mughaltaai: 5/321] – Wallahu a’lam!

11-          Imaam Dhahabi said: “He is Thiqah, Al-Fasawi has weakened him”

Sa’eed bin Abdur Rahmaan al-Jumahi is Thiqah according to the Jumhoor.
