ألحق بعدي مع عمر حيث دار
The truth after me is with ‘Umar wherever he goes.
This narration is mawdu’. Al ‘Uqayli reported it in al Du’afa’ from al Qasim ibn Yazid ibn ‘Abdullah ibn Qasit―from his father―from ‘Ata’ from―Ibn ‘Abbas radiya Llahu ‘anhuma.
Al Dhahabi clearly stated that it was a lie and Hafiz confirmed in al Lisan.
الحق مع علي
The truth is with ‘Ali.
This hadith is batil (false). Hafiz Ibn Kathir stated after quoting this hadith and the other, “Each of them is sceptical.”
Hafiz al Haythami says in Majma’ al Zawa’id, “al Bazzar narrated it. Sa’d ibn Shu’ayb appears in the isnad and I do not know him.”
Al Amini, the kadhab, in his book al Ghadir endeavours to create the impression in the mind of the reader that Sa’d ibn Shu’ayb is truthful and reliable and his biography is recorded in Tahdhib al Tahdhib. All these are falsehoods. His biography does not appear in any of the books of the Ahlus Sunnah. In this way, al Amini exonerates himself from amanah (honesty).
