Certainly, I am the servant of Allah, and the seal of the prophets while Adam ‘alayh al Salam was still in his mould

 

حدثنا أبو العباس محمد بن يعقوب ثنا الحسن بن علي بن عفان العمري و حدثنا أبو بكر بن أبي دارم الحافظ ثنا إبراهيم بن عبد الله العبسي قالا ثنا عبيد الله بن موسى ثنا إسرائيل عن أبي إسحاق عن المنهال بن عمرو عن عباد بن عبد الله الأسدي عن علي رضي الله عنه قال إني عبد الله و أخو رسوله و أنا الصديق الأكبر لا يقولها بعدي إلا كاذب صليت قبل الناس بسبع سنين قبل أن يعبده أحد من هذه الأمة و سأنبئكم بأول ذلك دعوة أبي إبراهيم و بشارة عيسى بي و رؤيا أمي التي رأت و كذلك أمهات النبيين يرين

Abu al ‘Abbas Muhammad ibn Ya’qub narrated to us―Hassan ibn ‘Ali ibn ‘Affan al ‘Amri narrated to us and Abu Bakr ibn Abi Darim al Hafiz narrated to us―Ibrahim ibn ‘Abdullah al ‘Absi narrated to us: both said―’Ubaidullah ibn Musa narrated to us―Isra’il narrated to us from―Abu Ishaq from―al Minhal ibn ‘Amr from―Abbad ibn ‘Abdullah al Asadi from―’Ali radiya Llahu ‘anhu who said:

I am the servant of Allah and the brother of His Messenger. I am al Siddiq al Akbar (the greatest truthful person). Only a liar will say this after me. I performed salah 7 years before the people; before anyone from this ummah worshipped Him. I will inform you of the beginning of this matter: The supplication of my father Ibrahim, the glad tidings of ‘Isa of my coming, and the dream my mother saw. Similarly, do the mothers of the Prophets see.

 

‘Abdullah ibn al Imam Ahmed narrated this in al Sunnah and declared it da’if.

 

I am the servant of Allah and the brother of His Messenger. I am al Siddiq al Akbar

 

حدثنا أبو العباس محمد بن يعقوب ثنا الحسن بن علي بن عفان العمري و حدثنا أبو بكر بن أبي دارم الحافظ ثنا إبراهيم بن عبد الله العبسي قالا ثنا عبيد الله بن موسى ثنا إسرائيل عن أبي إسحاق عن المنهال بن عمرو عن عباد بن عبد الله الأسدي عن علي رضي الله عنه قال إني عبد الله و أخو رسوله و أنا الصديق الأكبر لا يقولها بعدي إلا كاذب صليت قبل الناس بسبع سنين قبل أن يعبده أحد من هذه الأمة

Abu al ‘Abbas Muhammad ibn Ya’qub narrate to us―Hassan ibn ‘Ali ibn ‘Affan al ‘Amri narrated to us and Abu Bakr ibn Abi Darim al Hafiz narrated to us―Ibrahim ibn ‘Abdullah al ‘Absi narrated to us: both said―’Ubaidullah ibn Musa narrated to us―Isra’il narrated to us from―Abu Ishaq from―al Minhal ibn ‘Amr from―Abbad ibn ‘Abdullah al Asadi from―’Ali radiya Llahu ‘anhu who said:

I am the servant of Allah and the brother of His Messenger. I am al Siddiq al Akbar (the greatest truthful person). Only a liar will say this after me. I performed salah 7 years before the people; before anyone from this ummah worshipped Him.

 

It is quite apparent that this narration is fabricated with the evil intent of falsifying the station of al Siddiq al Akbar which is exclusively enjoyed by Sayyidina Abu Bakr radiya Llahu ‘anhu. Such a station that no other Sahabi could challenge him for. And he labels him a liar!

Al Dhahabi adds the following to this narration, “It is not sahih at all. Rather, it is a batil (false) hadith.”

Al Suyuti and Ibn al Jawzi declared it a fabrication.[1]

 

‘Abbad ibn ‘Abdullah al Asadi

  • Ibn al Madini said, ‘‘Abbad is da’i’”[2] Al Dhahabi clarifies that it is ‘Abbad ibn ‘Abdullah al Asadi.
  • Al Bukhari says, “There is scepticism about him.”[3]
