Hadith 39

 

أنا وهذا يعني عليا نجيء يوم القيامة كهاتين، وجمع بين أصبعيه السبابتين.

Me and this person (i.e. ‘Ali) will come on the Day of Judgement like this. And then he joined his two index fingers together.

 

Ibn ‘Adi and ibn ‘Asakir (in the same manner as Ibn ‘Adi) narrate — ‘Ali ibn Ahmed narrated to us (also known as ibn Abi Qurbah)‘Abbad ibn Ya’qub narrated to us — ‘Ali ibn Hashim informed us — from Sulaiman ibn Qarm — from Yazid ibn Abi Ziyad — from Salim ibn Abi al Ja’d — from Jabir, “The Messenger of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said…”[1]

This chain of transmission is da’if (weak).

Sulaiman ibn Qarm and Yazid ibn Abi Ziyad are both da’if (weak).

There is a difference of opinion regarding the status of ‘Abbad ibn Ya’qub. He narrated manakir (unacceptable narrations).

‘Ali ibn Hashim is a saduq (sincere).

Al Daraqutni writes: “I asked Abu al Hassan ibn Sufyan al Hafiz about ‘Ali ibn Ahmed al Hussain al ‘Ijli (more famously known as ibn Abi Qurbah). He said, ‘He is a thiqah (reliable), according to me; however, they (i.e. the hadith critics) have spoken (negatively) about him.’”[2]
