‘Ali (radiyallahu ‘anhu), The most capable in judgement in Madinah

Question

Is Hadith authentic?

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu ‘anhu) said:

“We used to say that the best judge among the people of Madinah was ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (radiyallahu ‘anhu)”

 

Answer

Imam Hakim (rahimahullah) has recorded this statement of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud and has declared it authentic.

(Mustadrak Hakim, vol. 3 pg. 135. Also see Musnad Bazzar, Hadith: 1616 and Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 9 pg. 116)

 

Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded a similar statement of Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu) wherein he states, “And our best judge is ‘Ali”

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 4481)
