A Hadith regarding the family of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)

Question

How reliable is this Hadith?

أبو بكر وعمر وعثمان وعائشة آل الله عز وجل، وعلي وفاطمة والحسن والحسين آلي، وسيجمع الله بين آله وآلي في روضة من رياض الجنة

 

Answer

‘Allamah Suyuti (rahimahullah) has cited this narration in his book on fabricated Hadiths. The Hadith should not be quoted.

(Dhaylul La-Alil Masnu’ah, vol. 1 pg. 225, Hadith: 257 and Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 1 pg. 388)

 

Translation

Abu Bakr, ‘Umar, ‘Uthman and ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anhum) are Allah’s (‘Azza Wa Jalla) family. ‘Ali, Fatimah, Hasan and Husayn are my family. Soon Allah will gather His family and my family in a garden of Jannah.

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
