You, O Ali, and your partisans (They are the best of creation)

 

أنت يا علي و شيعتك (أولئك هو خير البرية)

You, O Ali, and your partisans (They are the best of creation).

 

Abu al Jarud is one of the narrators. His name is Ziyad ibn al Mundhir al Kufi.

 

Ziyad ibn al Mundhir al Kufi

  • Hafiz ibn Hajar comments, “A rafidi. Yahya ibn Ma’in declared him a liar.”[1]
  • He described him as follows, “Kadhab (great liar). Unreliable.”[2]

 

Another narrator is ‘Isa ibn Farqad.

 

‘Isa ibn Farqad

  • He relates from liars and narrators suspected of forgery like Jabir al Ju’fi.[3]
  • He was a Rafidi who believed that Sayyidina ‘Ali radiya Llahu ‘anhu is the Dabat al Ard. He believed that he did not die, he is in the clouds and will soon return.
  • He also narrated from Hakim ibn Jubayr[4] (narrators suspected of forgery), as Ibn Abi Hatim reported about him in al Jarh wa al Tadil.[5]

 

Furthermore, it is in contradiction to the hadith reported by Sayyidina Anas radiya Llahu ‘anhu:

 

إن رجلا قال لرسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم يا خير البرية فقال ذلك إبراهيم

A man addressed Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam with the words, “O best of creation.”

Rasulullah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam responded, “That is Ibrahim.”[6]
