I am the leader of the sons of Adam and ‘Ali is the leader of the Arabs

 

أنا سيد ولد آدم و علي سيد العرب

I am the leader of the sons of Adam and ‘Ali is the leader of the Arabs.

 

Al Hakim narrated it[1] and declared it sahih coupled with acknowledging, “‘Umar ibn al Hassan is in the isnad and I hope that he is truthful.”

Al Dhahabi opposes him and says, “Hussain ibn Alawan and Umar ibn Musa al Wajihi fabricated it.”

Ḥāfiẓ says, “It is mawdu’.”[2][3]

Al Haythami says, “Khaqan appears therein who has been classified da’if by Abu Dawood. Ishaq ibn Ibrahim al Dabbi is also there who is matruk.”[4]

Mulla ‘Ali Qari says, “Mawdu’.”[5] Ibn al Jawzi expressed the same opinion.[6]

Al Sakhawi declared it da’if. In fact, he cited al Dhahabi’s declaration of it being a fabrication.[7]

Al ’Ijluni stated that all the chains of this hadith are da’if.[8]
