يقول الله عز و جل للعلماء يوم القيامة إذا قعد على كرسيه لقضاء عباده
Allah―the Mighty and Majestic―will tell the ‘Ulama’ on the Day of Qiyamah when he sits on His Kursi to judge between His servants …
The entire narration is mawdu’. Al Tabarani narrated it in al Mujam al Kabir.
He adds, “This sanad is mawdu’. It rests upon ‘Ala’ ibn Maslamah Abu Salim.
‘Ala’ ibn Maslamah Abu Salim
It is written in al Mizan:
Despite the apparent worthlessness of the isnad of this hadith, many ‘Ulama’ have followed in succession to give credibility to the narrators which an intellectual person who cares about his din is startled at.
The hadith is mawdu’ with its context. It has a very repulsive sentence, i.e. Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala sitting on the Kursi. I never found this sentence in any sahih hadith. The hadith has been reported without this portion from other chains which are all da’if. Some are weaker than others. It is important to state this so that no one dares to say due to their numbers, “Some strengthen others,” as happened to me before when examining the ahadith of al Targhib. I classified the hadith as Hassan in the footsteps of Ibn Kathir and those I mentioned with him. Now, I retract from that.
