The tradition mentioned above has also been transmitted by al-Zuhri through a different chain of narrators to the same effect. Abu Dawud said:

I heard Ahmad b. Shabbuyah say: Ibn al-Mubarak said about this tradition that Abu Salamah had transmitted it. This indicates that al-Zuhri did not hear it from Abu Salamah. Ahmad b. Muhammad said: This is verified by what Ayyub b. Sulaiman narrated to us. Abu Dawud said: I heard Ahmad b. Hanbal say: I have corrupted this tradition for us. He was asked: Do you think that it is correct that this tradition has been corrupted? Has any person other than Ibn Abi Uwais transmitted it ? He replied: Ayyub was similar to him in respect of reliability, and Ayyub transmitted it.

حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ السَّرْحِ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ وَهْبٍ، عَنْ يُونُسَ، عَنِ ابْنِ شِهَابٍ، بِمَعْنَاهُ وَإِسْنَادِهِ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو دَاوُدَ سَمِعْتُ أَحْمَدَ بْنَ شَبُّويَةَ، يَقُولُ قَالَ ابْنُ الْمُبَارَكِ - يَعْنِي فِي هَذَا الْحَدِيثِ - حَدَّثَ أَبُو سَلَمَةَ، فَدَلَّ ذَلِكَ عَلَى أَنَّ الزُّهْرِيَّ، لَمْ يَسْمَعْهُ مِنْ أَبِي سَلَمَةَ، وَقَالَ أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ ‏:‏ وَتَصْدِيقُ ذَلِكَ مَا حَدَّثَنَا أَيُّوبُ - يَعْنِي ابْنَ سُلَيْمَانَ - قَالَ أَبُو دَاوُدَ سَمِعْتُ أَحْمَدَ بْنَ حَنْبَلٍ يَقُولُ ‏:‏ أَفْسَدُوا عَلَيْنَا هَذَا الْحَدِيثَ ‏.‏ قِيلَ لَهُ ‏:‏ وَصَحَّ إِفْسَادُهُ عِنْدَكَ وَهَلْ رَوَاهُ غَيْرُ ابْنِ أَبِي أُوَيْسٍ قَالَ ‏:‏ أَيُّوبُ كَانَ أَمْثَلَ مِنْهُ ‏.‏ يَعْنِي أَيُّوبَ بْنَ سُلَيْمَانَ بْنِ بِلاَلٍ، وَقَدْ رَوَاهُ أَيُّوبُ ‏.‏
