An unreliable narration about Abu Bakr (radiyallahu ‘anhu)


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.

See here and here.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
