Grade of a Hadith on the importance of protecting the Quran and the Family of Nabi (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam)

Question

I am very curious about the correct grading of the following chain:

حدثنا سليمان بن عبيد الله الغيلاني، حدثنا أبو عامر، حدثنا كثير بن زيد، عن محمد بن عمر بن علي، عن أبيه، عن علي رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال :إني تركت فيكم ما إن أخذتم به لن تضلوا :كتاب الله، سببه بيد الله، وسببه بأيديكم، وأهل بيتي

 

Answer

This is a narration from Kitabus Sunnah of Imam Ibn Abi ‘Asim (rahimahullah), Hadith: 1563.

The chain is sound (hasan).

 

Translation

Sayyiduna ‘Ali (radiyallahu’anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said:

‘Indeed I have left with you such, that if you hold onto, you will not go astray; the book of Allah…. and my family.’

 

There are several other such reliable narrations on this topic. See Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 6175-6178 and Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 3788.

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
