Is this narration authentic?
Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“If everyone loved ‘Ali, Allah would not have created the Fire/Jahannam”
Imam Daylami (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith. However, ‘Allamah Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullah) has declared this Hadith a fabrication. ‘Allamah Suyuti (rahimahullah) has also cited this narration in his book on fabricated Hadiths.
(Minhajus Sunnah, vol. 5 pg. 76, Dhaylul La-Alil Masnu’ah, vol. 1 pg. 260, Hadith: 293, Tanzihush Shari’ah, vol. 1 pg. 399. Also see: Lisanul Mizan, vol. 7 pg. 253-255, number: 7018)
The Hadith in question is therefore not suitable to quote.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
