I questioned Qutham ibn al ‘Abbas: How did ‘Ali inherit from Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam to your exclusion

 

سألت قثم بن العباس كيف ورث علي رسول الله دونكم فقال إنه أولنا به لحوقا و أشدنا به لزوقا

I questioned Qutham ibn al ‘Abbas, “How did ‘Ali inherit from Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam to your exclusion?”

He explained, “He was the first of us to join him and was the most attached to him.”[1]

 

Hafiz says, “Al Hakim narrated it in al Manaqib and said, ‘The isnad is sahih.’ I say: There is much debate around Abu Ishaq in this hadith.”[2]

Al Hakim is mutasahil in authentication to the extent that Ibn Taymiyyah commented, “Al Hakim is the weakest of those who authenticate ahadith.”

The narration is from Abu Ishaq al Sabi’i. He became unstable, he is a mudallis, and had shia ideologies.

 

Sharik ibn Abdullah al Qadi

  • He is a mudallis, and da’i Moreover, the narration he narrates alone is munkar as Hafiz Ibn Hajar has stated.
