Abu Walid al-Baji transmitted it in his book al-Muntaqi Sharh al-Muwatta (7/312), he said,


muntaqa 312

Isa bin Dinar said (in the book) al-Utbiyyah about backbiting, “It is not backbiting when speaking against the oppressive ruler, the wicked sinner who sins publicly and the person of innovation.”

Ibn Rushd al-Maliki mentions the same in his book al-Bayan wat-Tahsil (17/575)

 bayan tahsil 17 575

This report was quoted without a chain and therefore it is difficult to make a ruling on its grading. Furthermore, al-Utbi’s book al-Mustakhrajah al-Utbiyyah Alal Muwatta Hafiz adh-Dhahabi said Muhammad bin Waddah said the book has many mistakes. Imam adh-Dhahabi then goes on to quote others saying the book is filled with lies and most of the reports in his are weak and odd or has strange issues. (Tarikh al-Islam (19/234-235 no.393), Siyar A’lam an-Nabula (12/235-236 no.132)

[AK] There is no chain for this report. Abul Walid al-Baji quotes it without a chain, it is not befitting to present this statement if the chain cannot be presented with it. The onus lies with those who quote this statement. END]
