من صنع إلى أحد من أهل بيتي يدا، كافأته عنها يوم القيامة. وقال: حق علي على المسلمين، كحق الوالد على الولد.
“Whoever lends a helping hand to someone from my Ahlul Bayt (Family of the House), I will recompense him on the Day of Resurrection.” And he said, “The right of ‘Ali over the Muslims is like the rights of a father over his child.”
This hadith is narrated by ‘Ali, ‘Ammar ibn Yasir, and Abu Ayub radiya Llahu ‘anhum.
This version of the hadith is narrated via two chains of transmission:
‘Isa ibn ‘Abdullah ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Umar ibn ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib is matruk al hadith (suspected of forgery in hadith).
It also contains the narrator Kadih ibn Rahmah. He is accused of fabricating hadith.
It also contains the narrator Ziyad ibn al Mundhir. He is (Ziyad ibn al Mundhir) Abu al Jarud al A’ma. He is a kadhdhab (liar).
Ibn ‘Asakir and Ibn Tahir narrate this version with a chain of transmission that is saqit (wholly unreliable). It contains the following defects:
In short, all of the chains of transmission are halikah (ruined). And the hadith is batil (false).
