An unreliable narration about the right of ‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu) over this Ummah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Is this Hadith authentic?

حق علي بن أبي طالب على هذه الأمة كحق الوالد على ولده



Imam Daylami (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna Jabir (radiyallahu ‘anhu). However the chain consists of a liar and a Rafidi (extremist Shi’i). The Hadith is not suitable to quote.

(Musnadul Firdaws, Hadith: 2674, Refer: Dhaylul La-Alil Masnu’ah, vol. 1 pg. 254, Hadith: 288 and Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 1 pg. 398)



The right of ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (radiyallahu ‘anhu) over this ummah is like the right a father enjoys over his child.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
