I asked Allah for 5 things for you. He gave me four and deprived me of one

 

حدثنا أحمد بن غالب بن الأجلح بن عبد السلام أبو العباس حدثنا محمد بن يحيى بن الضريس حدثنا عيسى بن عبد الله بن عمر بن علي بن أبي طالب حدثني أبي عبد الله بن عمر عن أبيه عن جده عن علي بن أبي طالب قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم سألت الله فيك خمسا فأعطاني أربعا و منعني واحدة سألته فأعطاني فيك أنك أول من تنشق الأرض عنه يوم القيامة و أنت معي معك لواء الحمد و أنت تحمله و أعطاني أنك ولي المؤمنين من بعدي

Ahmed ibn Ghalib ibn al Ajlah ibn ‘Abdul Salam Abu al ‘Abbas narrated to us―Muhammad ibn Yahya ibn al Daris narrated to us―’Isa ibn Abdullah ibn Umar ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib narrated to us―my father, ‘Abdullah narrated to me from―his father from―his grandfather from―’Ali ibn Abi Talib that Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said, “I asked Allah for 5 things for you. He granted me four and deprived me of one. I asked Him and He granted me with regards to you that you will be the first for whom the earth will be split on the Day of Qiyamah and you will be with me. With you will be the flag of praise which you will carry. And He favoured me that you will be the wali of the believers after me.

 

This narration is mawdu’.

 

‘Isa ibn Abdullah ibn Umar

Ibn al Jawzi says, “The attribution of this hadith to Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam is incorrect. We have just mentioned from Hafiz Ibn Hibban that he said, “‘Isa would narrate from his father from his forefathers all sorts of fabrications.”[1]
