أنت قسيم النار، وإنك تقرع باب الجنة، وتدخلها بغير حساب.
You are the one to assign the inhabitants of the Fire. And you will knock on the door of Jannat. And you will enter it without any reckoning.
This hadith is narrated from ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib and it has the following three chains of transmission:
Al Dhahabi writes, “‘Abdullah ibn Ahmed ‘Amir narrates — from his father — from ‘Ali al Rida — from his forefathers that false fabricated hadith. He (i.e. ‘Abdullah ibn Ahmed ‘Amir) fabricated it or his father. Hassan ibn ‘Ali al Zuhri says that he (i.e. ‘Abdullah ibn Ahmed ‘Amir) was illiterate and he was not satisfactory (in hadith).”
Qais is (Qais) ibn Rabi’. His memory faltered when he became old.
‘Abayah ibn Rib’i al Asadi, as mentioned previously, is da’if (weak).
Ibn ‘Adi and others narrate this version with a chain of transmission that contains the narrator Musa ibn Tarif al Asadi al Kufi. Abu Bakr ibn ‘Ayyash deemed him a kadhdhab (liar).
Al Albani ruled the hadith a fabrication.
I could not trace his father and grandfather.
In short, the hadith is batil (false), munkar (unacceptable) and inauthentic. In fact, it is not implausible to rule it a fabrication.
Imam Ahmed is reported to have accepted the authenticity of this hadith. However, this is incorrectly ascribed to him, as I have explained in the original work.
