There will be fitnah after me. When this transpires, then cling firmly to ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib

 

سيكون من بعدي فتنة فإذا كان ذلك فالزموا علي بن أبي طالب فإنه أول من آمن بي و أول من يصافحني يوم القيامة و هو الصديق الأكبر و هو فاروق هذه الأمة و هو يعسوب المؤمنين و المال يعسوب المنافقين

There will be fitnah after me. When this transpires, then cling firmly to ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib since he is the first to believe in me and will be the first to shake my hand on the Day of Qiyamah. He is al Siddiq al Akbar (the greatest truthful) and the Faruq (Criterion) of this ummah. He is the chief of the believers. And wealth is the chief of the hypocrites.

 

Hafiz says, “Ishaq ibn Bishr al Asadi one of the matruk narrators (those suspected of forgery) appears in the sanad.”[1]

 

Ishaq ibn Bishr ibn Muqatil Abu Yaqub al Kahili al Kufi

  • Matin says, “I have never heard Abu Bakr ibn Abi Shaybah declare anyone a liar besides Ishaq ibn Bishr al Kahili. Similarly, Musa ibn Harun and Abu Zur’ah called him a liar.
  • Al Falas and others labelled him matru
  • And al Daraqutni stated that he was among the many who fabricate hadi”[2]
