ما ثبت الله حب علي في قلب مؤمن فزلت به قدم، إلا ثبت الله قدماه يوم القيامة على الصراط.
Allah does not establish the love of ‘Ali in the heart of a believer—thereby causing his feet to slip—except that Allah will make his feet firm on the Day of Resurrection on the Sirat (Bridge).
Al Khatib narrates — from Muhammad ibn Sa’id ibn Hammad — Abu Hawalah Bishr ibn al Walid al Kufi narrated to us — Hassan ibn Salih narrated to us — from Suddi — from Muhammad ibn ‘Ali who said, “The Messenger of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said…”
This hadith is munkar (unacceptable).
Al Suddi is Ismail ibn ‘Abdul Rahman. There is a difference of opinion regarding his status.
Abu Hawalah Bishr ibn al Walid al Kufi could not be traced.
Muhammad ibn Sa’id ibn Hammad is majhul (unknown).
Additionally, the chain of transmission is mursal (broken transmission).
