Hadith 160

خطبنا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فسمعته وهو يقول: يا أيها الناس من أبغضنا أهل البيت حشره الله يوم القيامة يهوديا. فقلت: يا رسول الله وإن صام وصلى؟ قال: وإن صام وصلى، وزعم أنه مسلم. أيها الناس احتجر بذلك من سفك دمه، وأن يؤدي الجزية عن يد وهم صاغرون. مثل لي أمتي في الطين فمر بي أصحاب الرايات، فاستغفرت لعلي وشيعته.

The Messenger of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam addressed us. I heard him saying, “O people, whoever hates us, the Ahlul Bayt, Allah will resurrect him on the Day of Resurrection as a Jew.” I said, “O Messenger of Allah, even if he fasts and prays?” He said, “Even if he fasts and prays, and claims that he is a Muslim. O people, whoever sheds his blood will be saved from that and he should be made to give jizyah (tax) willingly while they are humbled. My Ummah was described to me in the clay (i.e. before the creation of their physical bodies). I passed by the standard bearers and so I sought repentance for ‘Ali and his Shia (Followers).”

 


This hadith is narrated from Jabir radiya Llahu ‘anhu with the following chains of transmission:

  1. Al Tabarani narrates — ‘Ali ibn Sa’id al Razi narrated to us — Harb ibn Hassan al Tahhan narrated to us — Hanan ibn Sudayr al Sayrafi narrated to us — Sudayf al Makki narrated to us — Muhammad ibn ‘Ali ibn al Hussain narrated to us, I have never seen a Muhammadi (i.e. a Muslim) equal to him — Jabir ibn ‘Abdullah al Ansari narrated to us…[1]

Al ‘Uqayli narrates this hadith, “Ishaq ibn Yahya al Dihqan narrated to us — Harb ibn al Hassan al Tahhan narrated to us…”[2]

This hadith contains the following defects:

  • Ishaq ibn Yahya al Dahqan could not be traced.
  • Al Dhahabi and Ibn Hajar both mention ‘Ali ibn Sa’id al Razi.[3] Both al Daraqutni and Ibn Yunus criticized him. Maslamah deemed him a thiqah (reliable). Several reprehensible things have been reported from him.
  • Harb ibn al Hassan al Tahhan’s hadith are not worth much. Al Azdi mentioned this. Ibn Hibban mentions him in Kitab al Thiqat; however, he is a lenient critic.
  • Hanan ibn Sudayr is mentioned by Ibn Hajar among the weak narrators.[4]
  • Sudayf is mentioned among the weak narrators by al Dhahabi, Ibn Hajar, and al ‘Uqayli.[5]

The following people followed Ibn al Jawzi in ruling the hadith a fabrication: al Dhahabi, al Suyuti, Ibn ‘Iraq, al Shawkani, and al Albani.[6]

 

  1. Al Sahmi narrates this version with a chain of transmission that is saqit (wholly unreliable).[7] It contains the following defects:
  • I saw al Daraqutni saying that Abu al Tahir Ahmed ibn ‘Isa is a kadhdhab (liar).
  • ‘Abdullah ibn al Minhal could not be traced.
  • Al Sahmi and al Khatib mention Abu Nuaim ‘Abdul Malik ibn Ahmed ibn Nuaim.[8] However, they do not mention anything (positive or negative) regarding his status as a narrator.
  1. Ibn al Jawzi narrates this version of the hadith and said, “This hadith is batil (false). Al Dhari’ is a kadhdhab (liar).”[9]

It also contains the narrator al Hassan ibn al Hussain al Ni’ali. He is Ibn Duma. Al Khatib suspected him of forging reports.

 

In short, the hadith is mawdu’ (fabricated). All of its chains of transmission are worthless.
