 ‘Ali began washing the Nabi salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam

 

جعل علي يغسل النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم فلم ير منه شيئا مما يرى من الميت و هو يقول بأبي أنت و أمي ما أطيبك حيا و ميتا

‘Ali began washing the Nabi salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam and did not see anything on him which is normally seen on a corpse. He commented, “May my parents be sacrificed for you. How pure are you, alive and dead!”

 

This narration is da’if due to Hussain ibn ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Ubaidullah ibn ‘Abbas ibn ‘Abdul Muttalib.

  • Al Bukhari comments, “He was accused of heresy.”[1]

Moreover, this is the observation Sayyidina Abu Bakr radiya Llahu ‘anhu made after the demise of Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam which the rafidi wishes to attribute to Sayyidina ‘Ali radiya Llahu ‘anhu.
