In the hadith عن أبي أمامة رضي الله عنه عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أنه قال: (ثلاث لا يستخِف بهم إلا منافق: ذو الشيبة في الإسلام وذو العلم وإمام مقسط) are both dhu's considered indefinite because ذو cannot become definite even when followed by a definite noun? It seems strange that there should be a list of three people, and two of them should be definite and one indefinite (إمام مقسط).

    I think ذو is one of those nouns that don't become معرفة even if their مضاف إليه is معرفة. Other examples are مِثْل and غَيْر.
