What is status of following narration?
ابو بكر مني وانا منه وابو بكر أخى في الدنيا والآخرة
This narration appears in Musnadul Firdaws of Imam Daylami.
(Musnadul Firdaws, Hadith: 1780)
However, the chain consists of fabricator. The narration is therefore not suitable to quote.
(Refer: Faydul Qadir, Hadith: 72, Al Mudawi, Hadith: 53. Also see: Lisanul mizan, vol. 5 pg. 116/117, number: 4663)
There are many authentic virtues of Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radiyallahu ‘anhu). These should be quoted instead.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
