Hadrat Sayyiduna Abdullah bin Shaqeeq Uqaili’s – may Allah be pleased with him – title was “Abu Abdur Rahman” or “Abu Mohammed”. He was a person who displayed many miracles and was an eminent Muhaddith among the Taaba’een.
He was also the student of Hadrat Sayyiduna ‘Umar, Hadrat Sayyiduna ‘Uthman and Hadrat Sayyiduna Ali – may Allah be pleased with them. Among his students were Imam Mohammed bin Sereen and Imam Qatadah – may Allah be pleased with them.
Ibn Sa’ad has counted him as being among the first group of the Taaba’een and Imam Abu Haatim has considered him as being among the authentic Muhaditheen. It is mentioned that his Du’a was so immediate and effective that if he saw a cloud passing by and made Du’a that it rains, the cloud did not go without this happening. This is mentioned by Imam ibn Abi Ghaysimah in the “Taarikh” in very clear words.
He passed away in 108 A.H. (Tahzeeb)
