Hadith 210

خرج رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من بيت زينب بنت جحش، وأتى بيت أم سلمة، فكان يومها من رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم، فلم يلبث أن جاء علي، فدق الباب دقا خفيفا، فانتبه النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم للدق، وأنكرته أم سلمة، فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: قومي فافتحي له. قالت: يا رسول الله من هذا الذي من خطره ما يفتح له الباب، أتلقاه بمعاصمي، وقد نزلت في آية من كتاب الله بالأمس؟ فقال لها كهيئة المغضب: إن طاعة الرسول طاعة الله، ومن عصى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فقد عصى الله. إن بالباب رجلا ليس بفرق، ولا علق، يحب الله ورسوله، لم يكن ليدخل حتى ينقط الوطئ.. قال: فقمت وأنا أختال في مشيتي، وأنا أقول: بخ بخ، من ذا الذي يحب الله ورسوله، ويحبه الله ورسوله؟ ففتحت الباب، فأخذ بعضادتي الباب، حتى إذا لم يسمع حسا ولا حركة، وصرت في خدري، استأذن فدخل، فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: يا أم سلمة أتعرفونه؟ قالت: نعم يا رسول الله، هذا علي بن أبي طالب. قال: صدقت، سيد أحبه، لحمه من لحمي، ودمه من دمي، وهو عيبة بيتي، اسمعي واشهدي، وهو قاتل الناكثين، والقاسطين، والمارقين، من بعدي، فاسمعي وأشهدي، وهو قاضي عداتي، فاسمعي واشهدي، وهو والله يحيي سنتي، فاسمعي واشهدي. لو أن عبدا عبد الله ألف عام، بعد ألف عام، وألف عام بين الركن والمقام، ثم لقي الله مبغضا لعلي بن أبي طالب، وعترتي، أكبه الله على منخريه يوم القيامة في نار جهنم.

The Messenger of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam exited from the house of Zainab bint Jahsh and came to the house of Umm Salamah. It was her day with the Messenger of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. He was not there for long when ‘Ali showed up. He gently knocked on the door. The Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam perceived the knocking and Umm Salamah did not know who it was knocking. The Messenger of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said, “Stand and open the door for him.” She said, “O Messenger of Allah, who is this person that has reached such importance that the door should be opened for him; such that I meet him with my wrists (i.e. when going to open the door)? Yesterday, a verse from the Book of Allah was revealed regarding me.” He said angrily, “Verily obedience of the Messenger is obedience of Allah. Whoever disobeys the Messenger of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, he has most certainly disobeyed Allah. Verily there is a man at the door who is not a coward nor a leech. He loves Allah and His Messenger. He is not the type of person to enter (the house at such a time until) marital relations have terminated.” I stood up, walking pompously and saying, “Bravo! Well done! Who is this person that loves Allah and His Messenger, and Allah and His Messenger love him?” I opened the door and he grabbed hold of the jambs of the door such that he could not hear a noise or a movement. I went to my room. He sought permission (to enter) and then entered. The Messenger of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said, “O Umm Salamah, do you know who he is?” (She said) “Yes, O Messenger of Allah. This is ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib.” He said, “You are correct. He is a Sayed that I love. His flesh is from my flesh and his blood is from my blood. He is the protector of my house. Listen and testify. He will kill the Nakithin (the people of the battle of Jamal), the Qasitin (the people of the battle of Siffin) and the Mariqin (the people of Nahrawan, i.e. the Khawarij) after me. Listen and testify. He will fulfill my (religious) obligations. Listen and testify. He, by Allah, will revive my sunnah. Listen and testify. If a servant worships Allah for a thousand years, and then another thousand years, and (another) thousand years between al Rukn and al Maqam, then he meet Allah while hating ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib and my family (‘itrati), Allah will drag him by his nostrils on the Day of Resurrection in the Fire of Jahannam.”

 


Ibn ‘Asakir narrates this hadith  — from Abu Bakr Ahmed ibn Kamil ibn Khalaf ibn Shajarah — Al Qasim ibn al ‘Abbas al Mi’sari Zakariyya ibn Yahya al Harrar al Muqriʾ narrated to us — Ismail ibn ‘Abbad narrated to us — Sharik narrated to us — from Mansur — from Ibrahim — from ‘Alqamah — from ‘Abdullah…[1]

This hadith is batil (false), evidently mawdu’ (fabricated). How could Umm Salamah not recognize ‘Ali such that the Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam needed to ask her, “Do you know who he is?”

Zakariyya ibn Yahya al Harrar al Muqriʾ and Ismail ibn ‘Abbad are both unidentified.

Sharik is da’if (weak).

Regarding Abu Bakr Ahmed ibn Kamil ibn Khalaf ibn Shajarah, al Daraqutni said, “He was lenient (in hadith). At times, he would narrate from his memory such hadiths which were not in his book. Pride destroyed him; he would choose (on his own accord) and not consider anything from the leading ‘ulamaʾ.”[2]  

Both al Suyuti and Ibn ‘Iraq mention this hadith via the same way as Ibn ‘Asakir.[3]
