What is the reference for this narration and can it be quoted?
Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu) narrated that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Talhah and Zubayr are my neighbours in Jannah”
Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration and has declared the Hadith weak.
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3741)
However, the Hadith is suitable to quote as is the case with Hadiths of this nature.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
