The Hadith: 'Teach your sons swimming and archery...'
Is this a Hadith or just a saying of one of the Sahabah (Companions of the Prophet): “Teach your sons swimming, archery, and horsemanship”?
We have not found this Hadith in this wording, but some parts of it have corroborating reports showing that there is some basis to it, as mentioned in "Kashf Al-Khafa'" by
Al-‘Ajluny and "Al-Jami‘ Al-Saghir" by
Al-Suyuty. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet
Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
