عنوان صحيفة المؤمن حب علي بن أبي طالب.
The epitome for the sahifah (book) of a believer is the love of ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib.
Al Khatib and others narrate — from Ahmed ibn Muhammad ibn Juri al ‘Ukbari in Baghdad — Ibrahim ibn ‘Abdullah ibn Mihran al Ramli narrated to us — Maymun ibn Mihran ibn Makhlad ibn Aban al Katib narrated to us — Abu al Nu’man ‘Arim ibn al Fadl narrated to us — Qudamah ibn al Nu’man narrated to us — from al Zuhri who said: ‘I heard Anas ibn Malik say: ‘By Allah, other than him whom there is no deity, indeed I heard the Messenger of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam say…’”
Al Khatib says the hadith of Ibn Juri contains gharaʾib (oddities) and manakir (unacceptable elements).
Ibn al Jawzi says this hadith has no basis; Ibn Juri narrates from majahil (unknown narrators).
I do not know who the narrators between Ibn Juri and ‘Arim are.
Al Dhahabi and Ibn Hajar state: “Qudamah ibn al Nu’man from al Zuhri is unknown and the report is batil (false). Furthermore, the chain of transmission up to him is muzlim (murky).”
Al Dhahabi states: “I do not know who fabricated it.”
Al Albani says the hadith is batil (false).
Al Suyuti also mentions the hadith.
