Jihad (Kitab Al-Jihad)
Chapter: Regarding Al-Muhallil (Entering A Third Horse In A Race With Two Other Horses For A Stake)
باب فِي الْمُحَلِّلِ
Sunan Abi Dawud 2580

The tradition mentioned above has also been transmitted by Al Zuhri with the chain of ‘Abbad and to the same affect.

Abu Dawud said “This tradition has also been narrated by Ma’mar, Shu’aib and ‘Aqil on the authority of Al Zuhri from a number of scholars and this is the soundest one in our opinion.

حَدَّثَنَا مَحْمُودُ بْنُ خَالِدٍ، حَدَّثَنَا الْوَلِيدُ بْنُ مُسْلِمٍ، عَنْ سَعِيدِ بْنِ بَشِيرٍ، عَنِ الزُّهْرِيِّ، بِإِسْنَادِ عَبَّادٍ وَمَعْنَاهُ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو دَاوُدَ رَوَاهُ مَعْمَرٌ وَشُعَيْبٌ وَعَقِيلٌ عَنِ الزُّهْرِيِّ، عَنْ رِجَالٍ، مِنْ أَهْلِ الْعِلْمِ وَهَذَا أَصَحُّ عِنْدَنَا ‏.‏
