A narration regarding the complexion of Yusuf (‘alayhis salam) and Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)


What is status of following narration?

أنا أملح وأخي يوسف أصبح



This narration is cited in non primary Hadith sources like Tafsir Mazhari. I have not come across this narration in any primary Hadith source and could therefore not verify the authenticity.

(Tafsir Mazhari, Surah: Yusuf, Verse: 84, vol. 4 pg. 52, ‘ilmiyyah edition. Also see: Al Kawkabud Durri, vol. 4 pg. 172)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
