Ask ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib about it since he is more knowledgeable than me.

 

أخبرنا أبو القاسم زاهر بن طاهر أنا أبو سعد الجنزرودي أنا السيد أبو الحسن محمد بن علي بن الحسين نا حمزة بن محمد الدهقان نا محمد بن يونس نا وهب بن عثمان البصري نا إسماعيل بن أبي خالد عن قيس بن أبي حازم قال سأل رجل معاوية عن مسألة فقال سل عنها علي بن أبي طالب فهو أعلم مني قال قولك يا أمير المؤمنين أحب إلي من قول علي قال بئس ما قلت و لؤم ما جئت به لقد كرهت رجلا كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم يغره بالعلم غرا و لقد قال له أنت مني بمنزلة هرون من موسى

Abu al Qasim Zahir ibn Tahir informed us―Abu Sa’d al Khanzarudi informed us―al Sayed Abu al Hassan Muhammad ibn ‘Ali ibn al Hussain informed us―Hamzah ibn Muhammad al Dihqan narrated to us―Muhammad ibn Yunus narrated to us―Wahb ibn ‘Uthman al Basri narrated to us―Ismail ibn Abi Khalid narrated to us from―Qais ibn Abi Hazim who reports:

A man asked Muawiyah a ruling. Muawiyah told the man, “Ask ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib about it since he is more knowledgeable than me.”

The man remarked, “O Amir al Mu’minin, your statement is more beloved to me than ‘Ali’s.”

Muawiyah admonished him saying, “Evil indeed is what you said, and wicked is what you brought! You have disliked a man whom Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam would flood with knowledge and he said to him, ‘You are to me like the positon of Harun to Musa.’”

 

Abu al Qasim Zahir ibn Tahir is one of the problematic narrators. They discarded him because he would discard Salah.[1]
