من حسد عليا فقد حسدني، ومن حسدني فقد كفر.
Whoever holds a grudge against ‘Ali holds a grudge against me. And whoever holds a grudge against me has disbelieved.
Ibn Mardawayh narrates — ‘Abdul Khaliq ibn Muhammad ibn Marwan narrated to us — my father narrated to us — Masih ibn Muhammad narrated to us — Sallam ibn Abi ‘Amrah narrated to me — from Ibn Sirin — from Anas who said, “The Messenger of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said…”
Ibn al Jawzi cites this hadith and says, “This hadith contains the narrator Sallam. Ibn Hibban says it is not permissible to consider him a valid form of proof.”
This chain of transmission is wah (feeble). I could not trace ‘Abdul Khaliq ibn Muhammad ibn Marwan, his father (Muhammad ibn Marwan), and Masih ibn Muhammad.
The hadith of Sallam ibn Abi ‘Amrah are not worth anything (i.e. he is da’if (weak)), as Ibn Ma’in stated.
