Whoever desires to live my life and die my death

 

من أحب (سره) أن يحيا حياتي و يموت موتتي و يس كن جنة الخلد التي وعدني ربي عز و جل غرس قضبانها بيديه فليتول علي بن أبي طالب

Whoever desires to live my life, die my death, and live in the eternal Jannat which my Rabb―the Mighty and Majestic―promised me, the trees of which He planted with His hands, should befriend ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib.[1]

 

Al Hakim classified it sahih. However, al Dhahabi rectified him explaining that al Qasim is matruk and his Sheikh, i.e. Yahya ibn Ya’la al Aslami, is da’if.

 

Yahya ibn Ya’la al Aslami

  • Hafiz says, “Shia. Da’if.”

However, he erred by calling him al Muharibi instead of al Aslami. ‘Abdul Hussain took advantage of this in a very nasty way in al Muraja’at.

Al Albani remarks about this hadith, “It is mawdu’. Abu Nuaim narrated it in al Hilyah[2] from the chain of Muhammad ibn Zakariyya al GhulabiBishr ibn Mahran narrated to us―Sharik narrated to us from―al A’mash from―Zaid ibn Wahb from―Hudhayfah. The narration is mawquf. Bishr is the only narrator from Sharik.”

 

Bishr ibn Mahran

  • He is Ibn ‘Abdullah al Qadi. Da’if due to his poor memory.
  • Ibn Abi Hatim says, “My father discarded his ahadith.”

 

Muhammad ibn Zakariyya al Ghulabi

  • Al Dhahabi says, “Muhammad ibn Zakariyya al Ghulabi narrated from him, but al Ghulabi is suspect.” He then mentioned this narration.
  • Al Daraqutni commented on al Ghulabi saying, “He fabricates hadith.” So he is problematic.

Ibn al Jawzi documented the hadith in al Mawdu’at[3] from other chains. Al Suyuti concurred.[4]

He added two chains which he declared flawed. This is one of them. He said, “al Ghulabi is suspect.” It is reported with more complete wording.
