You are like the Ka’bah; you are approached and you do not approach

 

أنت بمنزلة الكعبة تؤتى و لا تأتي

You are like the Ka’bah; you are approached and you do not approach.

 

The narration is mawdu’.[1]

It appears in Usd al Ghabah with this sanad:

 

عبد الله بن أحمد بن عبد القاهر أنبأنا أبو غالب محمد بن الحسن الباقلاني إجازة أنبأنا أبو علي بن شاذان أنبأنا عبد الباقي بن قانع حدثنا محمد بن زكريا الغلابى حدثنا العباس بن بكارعن شريك عن سلمة عن الصنابحي عن علي قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم أنت بمنزلة الكعبة تؤتى و لا تأتي فإن أتاك هؤلاء القوم فسلموها إليك يعني الخلافة فاقبل منهم و إن لم يأتوك فلا تأتهم حتى يأتوك

‘Abdullah ibn Ahmed ibn ‘Abdul Qahir―Abu Ghalib Muhammad ibn al Hassan al Baqillani informed us with ijazah (permission)―Abu ‘Ali ibn Shadhan informed us―’Abdul Baqi ibn Qani’ informed us―Muhammad ibn Zakariyya al Ghilabi narrated to us―’Abbas ibn Bakar narrated to us from―Sharik from―Salamah from―al Sunabihi from―’Ali who reports that Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said:

You are like the Ka’bah; you are approached and you do not approach. If these people approach you and hand it (i.e. the khilafah) over to you, then accept it from them. However, if they do not come to you then do not approach them until they approach you.[2]

 

Al Suyuti labelled it as Mawdu’ in al Ziyadat ala al Mawduat.[3] It is found in al Firdaws of al Daylami too but without any chain of narration.

 

Muhammad ibn Zakariyya al Ghilabi

Al Dhahabi says, “He is da’if.”

Ibn Hibban said, “His narrations will be considered if he narrated from reliable narrators.” [in this case he is narrating from a fabricator]

Al Daraquthni says, “He fabricates hadith.”[4]

 

‘Abbas ibn Bakar

Al Daraquthni said, “A liar.”

Al ‘‘Uqayli said, “The bulk of his narrations comprise of weakness and abominations.”[5]

 

Sharik

He is da’if as affirmed by Hafiz.[6]
