A narration regarding Sayyiduna ‘Ali, Hasan, Husayn (radiyallahu’anhum) and nine children of Husayn (radiyallahu ‘anhum)

Question

What is the authenticity of this Hadith?

أخبرنا سعد بن عبد الله قال أنبأنا الهيثم بن أبي مسروق النهدي عن الحسين بن علوان عمرو بن خالد عن سعد بن طريف عن الأصبغ بن نباتة عن عبد الله بن عباس قال سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول: أنا وعلي والحسن والحسين وتسعة من ولد الحسين مطهرون معصومون

 

Answer

I have not come across this Hadith in any authentic Primary Hadith source.

This narration is found in a few Shi’i books. Several narrators in the chain you have provided are Rafidis/extremist Shi’is. They are also extremely weak and one has been accused of fabricating Hadith.

(Refer: Taqribut Tahdhib: 537 and 2241)

 

The narration is therefore not suitable to quote.

 

Translation

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: ” ‘Ali, Hasan, Husayn, nine children of Husayn and I have been purified and protected from sin”

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
