You are the first to believe in me and will be the first to shake my hand on the Day of Qiyamah

 

أنت أول من آمن بي و أول من يصافحني يوم القيامة و أنت صديقي الأكبر و أنت الفاروق تفرق بين الحق و الباطل و أنت يعسوب المؤمنين

You are the first to believe in me and will be the first to shake my hand on the Day of Qiyamah. You are my greatest friend and you are al Faruq (the criterion); you differentiate between truth and falsehood. You are the chief of the believers.

 

The hadith is mawdu’. The following scholars have passed this verdict: al Shawkani[1], Ibn al Jawzi[2], and al Suyuti[3].

Hafiz says, “This isnad is wahin (weak). Muhammad is accused. ‘Abbad is one of the senior Rawafid although he is truthful when narrating ahadith.”[4]

I say: Fudayl ibn Mardhuq is also in the isnad who had serious Shia ideologies.

Fudayl ibn Mardhuq

  • Al Nasa’i and Ibn Hibban declared him da’if. He would narrate fabrications from ‘Attiyah al ‘Aufi.[5]
  • Some gave him credibility while others declared him da’if. He is one of the narrators due to which Muslim is criticised for narrating their ahadith in Sahih Muslim as stated by al Hakim.
  • Ibn Hibban comments, “He narrates fabrications from ‘Attiyah.”
  • He had deep-rooted Shia inclinations as Ibn Ma’in and al ‘Ijli have stated.[6]
  • Hafiz concludes at the end, “ Guilty of wahm. Accused of having Shia tendencies.”[7]

Al Haythami states, “‘Amr ibn Sa’id al Misri appears in the isnad who is da’if.”[8]
