I am a warner and ‘Ali is the guide; through you O ‘Ali will the guided be guided

 

أنا المنذر و علي الهادي بك يا علي يهتدي المهتدون

I am a warner and ‘Ali is the guide. Through you O ‘Ali will the guided be guided.

 

Al Albani remarked, “Mawdu’.”[1]

Hassan ibn al Hussain appears in the isnad.

Hassan ibn al Hussain

  • Abu Hatim comments, “He was not truthful according to them. He was from the Shia leaders.”
  • Ibn ‘Adi remarks, “His hadith do not resemble the hadith of reliable narrators.”
  • Ibn Hibban stated, “He narrates weak narrations from reliable narrators and reports jumbled reports.”[2]
  • This hadith has been listed as one of his munkar reports.

‘Abdul Hussain says in al Muraja’at, “In this regard, seven ahadith from the Ahlus Sunnah have been reported.”[3]

Al Albani objects, “He then only quotes one hadith. He asserts that Ibrahim al Himawi reported it directly from Sayyidina Abu Hurairah radiya Llahu ‘anhu. Who is this Ibrahim? Possibly, it is Ibrahim ibn Sulaiman al Himawi (d. 732 A.H.) from the latter Hanafi scholars. Moreover, he did not mention the reference of the book where the alleged hadith appears. He says, ‘Directly from Abu Hurairah.’ This is a blatant lie. How can a person of the eighth century quote directly from Sayyidina Abu Hurairah radiya Llahu ‘anhu when there is a gap of many centuries between them? If we hypothetically agree that he mentioned a full chain from him to Sayyidina Abu Hurairah radiya Llahu ‘anhu, then too what is the worth of this isnad which has omitted many narrators? The like of it is hardly free from internal defects. These Shia like al Gharqi cling on to anything even strings from the moon.”[4]
