أنت تبين لأمتي ما اختلفوا فيه من بعدي.
You will explain to my Ummah what they are differing about after me.
This hadith is narrated by Anas with the following chains of transmission:
Al Hakim said, “This hadith is sahih (authentic) according to the conditions of both al Bukhari and Muslim. They did not include it in their collection.”
Al Dhahabi disagreed and said, “Rather, it is—according to me—fabricated by the aforementioned Dirar ibn Surad in the chain of transmission. Ibn Ma’in said he was a kadhdhab (liar).”
Al Albani ruled the hadith a fabrication.
As mentioned previously, this hadith is mawdu’ (fabricated). A number of people have ruled it a fabrication.
It also contains the narrator Ishaq ibn Muhammad ibn Marwan al Kufi. He is not to be considered a form of admissible proof.
It also contains the narrator Abu Ishaq al Sabi’i. He is a mudallis (obfuscates when he narrates) and a mukhtalit (commits serious errors).
In short, the hadith is mawdu’ (fabricated) and saqit (wholly unreliable) in all of its variant chains of transmission.
