What is status of following narration?
قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: الحمد لله الذي أطعمني الخمير، وألبسني الحرير، وزوجني خديجة، وكنت لها عاشقا
Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Imam Zuhri (rahimahullah) mursalan.
(Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 3 pg. 182)
However, this chain consists of a narrator who has been declared extremely weak by some Muhaddithun. Imams Ibn Ma’in, Daraqutni, Azdi (rahimahumullah) and others have declared him a liar/fabricator.
(Refer: Lisanul Mizan, vol. 7 pg. 52/53, number: 6623)
The narration is therefore not suitable to quote.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
