علي بن أبي طالب يزهر في الجنة، ككوكب الصبح لأهل الدنيا.
‘Ali ibn Abi Talib will be radiant in Jannat just like the morning star (is radiant) for the people of the Dunya.
This hadith is narrated by Hammad ibn Salamah — from Humaid — from Anas. It has the following chains of transmission:
Ibn al Jawzi says, “This hadith is inauthentic from the Messenger of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. Al Fatimi is suspected of lying. Ibrahim ibn Abi Yahya is matruk (abandoned).”
Yahya ibn Sa’id al Qattan deemed Ibrahim ibn Abi Yahya a kadhdhab (liar).
I could not trace the person he suspected of lying, i.e. al Fatimi.
Al Albani also did not know who he was. He says the chain of transmission is very weak.
Al Dhahabi says, “This hadith was fabricated on to Hammad ibn Salamah, from Humaid, from Anas (i.e. this chain was wrongfully attributed to them).”
It also contains the narrators Kadih and Sulaiman ibn al Rabi’. They are both matruk (suspected of forgery).
In short, all the chains of transmission are wahiyah (feeble) and saqitah (wholly unreliable). The hadith is munkar (unacceptable) and batil (false).
 Ibn al Jawzi: al ‘Ilal al Mutanahiyah, 1/403.
