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.
