Hadith 94

إن الله تبارك وتعالى زينك بزينة، لم يزين العباد بزينة مثلها، إن الله تعالى حبب إليك المساكين، والدنو منهم، وجعلك لهم إماما ترضى بهم، وجعلهم لك أتباعا يرضون بك، فطوبى لمن أحبك، وصدق عليك، وويل لمن أبغضك، وكذب عليك، فأما من أحبك، وصدق عليك، فهم جيرانك في دارك، ورفقاؤك من جنتك، وأما من أبغضك، وكذب عليك، فإنه حق على الله  عز وجل أن يوقفهم مواقف الكذابين.

(I heard the Messenger of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam say to ‘Ali,) “Verily Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala has graced you with such grace that He has not graced any of His servants with. Verily Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala has made the masakin (poor people) beloved to you; He has caused you to maintain close relationships with them. He has made you an imam for them such that you are pleased with them. He has made them your followers such that they are pleased with you. Therefore, glad tidings to those who love you and believe in you. Woe unto those who hate you and belie you. As for those who love you and believe in you, they will be your neighbor in your house and your friends in Jannat. As for those who hate you and belie you, it is the right of Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala that He places them among the kadhdhabin (liars).”

 


Al Tabarani and others narrate — from ‘Ali ibn al Hazawwar — from Asbagh ibn Nubatah — from ‘Ammar ibn Yasir who said, “I heard the Messenger of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam say to ‘Ali…”[1]

This hadith is mawdu’ (fabricated) and its chain of transmission is saqit (wholly unreliable).

‘Ali ibn al Hazawwar and al Asbagh ibn Nubatah are both matruk (suspected of forgery).

‘Ali ibn al Hazawwar enjoys a tabi’[2] (parallel narration) from Sa’d ibn Tarif.[3] However, he is (also) matruk (suspected of forgery).

Al Asbagh enjoys a tabi’ (parallel narration) from Abu Maryam.[4] However, he is majhul (unknown).

Al Suyuti and Ibn ‘Iraq mention this hadith among other fabricated narrations.[5]

In short, the hadith is mawdu’ (fabricated) and batil (false).
