Is the following Hadith authentic?
Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“O Fatimah! When I wished to get you married to ‘Ali, Allah ordered Jibril and all the Angels stood in rows. Jibril then addressed them and married you to ‘Ali”
‘Allamah Dhahabi (rahimahullah) has declared this Hadith a fabrication. The Hadith is not suitable to quote.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
