You are the guide, O ‘Ali. Through you will the guided find guidance after me

 

أنت الهادي يا علي بك يهتدي المهتدون من بعدي

You are the guide, O ‘Ali. Through you will the guided find guidance after me.

 

Al Tabari records it.[1] The hadith is da’if.

Al Dhahabi says, “Ibn Jarir reported it from Muaz ibn Muslim. Muaz is unknown. Probably he is problematic.”[2]

Ibn Kathir says, “There is severe nakarah (disgust) in this hadith.”[3]

There is another narration which reads:

 

الهادي رجل من بني هاشم قال ابن الجنيد هو علي بن أبي طالب

The guide is a man from the Banu Hashim.

Ibn al Junaid clarified, “He is ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib.”

 

The problem with this narration is Muttalib ibn Ziyad.

Another narration reads:

 

أنا المنذر و علي الهادي بك يا علي يهتدي المهتدون

I am a warner and ‘Ali is the guide. Through you O ‘Ali will the guided be guided.

 

Al Albani remarked, “Mawdu’.”[4]
