Hadith 203: O ‘Ali, you are like the status of the Ka’bah; (people) come to it and it does not go (to people). If these people come to you and give power to you regarding this affair, accept it from them. And if they do not come to you, do not go to them.

Hadith 204

جاءت امرأة إلى علي بن أبي طالب، فقالت: إني أبغضك. فقال علي: فأنت إذن سلقلق. قالت: وما السلقلق؟ قال: سمعت النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول: يا علي لا يبغضك من النساء إلا السلقلق، فقلت: يا رسول الله ما السلقلق؟ قال: التي تحيض من دبرها. قالت: صدق رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم، أنا والله أحيض من دبري، وما علم أبواي.

A woman came to ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib and said, “Verily I hate you.” ‘Ali said, “Then you are a salaqlaq.” She said, “What is a salaqlaq?” He said, “I heard the Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam say, ‘O ‘Ali, no one hates you from the women except for a salaqlaq.’ I said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, what is a salaqlaq?’ He said, ‘She who menstruates from her anus.’” She said, “The Messenger of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam has spoken the truth; I, by Allah, menstruate from my anus and my parents do not know.”


Al Daylami narrates this hadith — my father informed us — Abu al Hassan al Barzi informed us — Abu Muhammad ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abdul Rahman al Hurdi narrated to us — Ibrahim ibn al Shahrazuri informed us — Muhammad ibn Shu’ayb narrated to us — ‘Umar ibn ‘Imran narrated to us — Jafar ibn Sulaiman ibn ‘Ali ibn ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas narrated to us — from his father — from his grandfather — from Ibn ‘Abbas…[1]

Al Suyuti mentions this hadith in his work on fabrications.[2]

The hadith appears in al Daylami’s Musnad al Firdaws without a chain of transmission.

Ibn ‘Iraq mentions this hadith in his work on fabrications and says, “He (i.e. al Suyuti) did not explain the defect in the hadith. The chain of transmission contains majhul (unknown) narrators.”[3]

There is a stark difference between this (purported) hadith and the actual beautiful nature of authentic Prophetic words. It is without doubt a forgery from some ignoramuses who are (clearly) ignorant of the Prophet’s salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam eminent status.
