Also in this chain is al-Amash, thiqat but famous for his tadlis, and he narrated this hadith in/anana/ form. It’s mean he didn’t make clear that he heard this hadith from next narrator ornot.Also in this chain Salih ibn Muqatil. Daraqutni said he’s not strong
.Same two problems present in similar hadith in “Mustakraj at-Toose” by Abu Ali al-Hasanibn Ali ibn Nasir at-Toose (n103), in “Sharkhul mazhab ahles-unnah” by ibn Shaheen, and in“Mojam al-kabeer” at-Tabarane. In the chain of Tabarani also present Ahmad ibn Budayland Muhammad ibn Abi Shayba. Daraqutni said there is softness in ibn Budayl. Ibn Adinoticed he’s weak
. As for ibn Abi Shayba scholars differed in him.Dhahabi in “Talkhis” said this hadith was fabricated.Suyuti in “Leal” cited two ways of transmission as witnesses, but both of them are weak. Infirst one Ahmad ibn al-Hajjaj ibn Salat, he was accused by Dhahabi
. And second one wouldbe discussed later. There is another way till al-Amash, it was transmitted by al-Halabi and ibn Asakir, in thechain is Khammad ibn Mubarak and he’s unknown.
Narration from Imran ibn al-Hussain
.It was transmitted by al-Hakim in “Mostadrak” (4681) with wording: “Looking at the Ali isworship”.In the chain some narrators unknown for me, like Ibrahim ibn Ishaq al-Jufi, Abdullah ibnAbdurabeh. These two narrators also present in the chain from “Marifat” by Abu Nuaym.Dhahabi said narration is fabrication.From Imran it was also narrated by his great-great-grandson Imran ibn Khalid, that hadithwas transmitted by Abu Nuaym in “Marifat”.Dhahabi cited it in “Mizanul itidal” (3/236/n6280) in the bio of this Imran, and said it’s false.His full name was Imran ibn Khalid ibn Taliq ibn Imran ibn Hussain. He also part of thechain, which was transmitted by Tabarani. Al-Heythami in “Majmau zawaid” (14695) saidthis narrator was weak.
Narration from Abdullah ibn Masood
.It was transmitted by Hakim in “Mostadrak” (4683). In the chain Aseem ibn Ali. Ibn Muinsaid he’s nothing. Nasai said he’s weak. Scholars differed in grading of this narrator
.Also in chain Abdurrahman ibn Abdullah al-Masoode, truthful narrator that becameconfused in the end of his life. Sulayman ibn Harb, Abu Ubeyd and Ahmad ibn Hanbal said:He died in 160
. In this chain he is shaykh of Aseem ibn Ali, and Aseem died in 221. It’spossible that he heard from him in the end. Allah knows best.Also I couldn’t find any praise or critic about narrators Musab ibn Zuhayr. Seems hisreliability isn’t known.
Narration from Aisha
.It was transmitted by Abu Nuaym in “Hiliyah” (2/182-183) via chain: Abad ibn Suhayb fromHisham ibn Urwa from father from Aisha.Abu Nuaym himself noticed: “Ghareeb from narrations of Hisham ibn Urwa, didn’t wrote itexcept from (this) hadith of Abad”.
