Is this narration authentic?

Ja’far As Sadiq (rahimahullah) said:

“Allah disassociates Himself from those who disassociate themselves from Abu Bakr and ‘Umar”.



This narration of Ja’far As Sadiq (rahimahullah) is recorded in Fadailus Sahabah of Imam Ahmad ibn Hambal and other Hadith collections.

(Fadailus Sahabah, Hadith: 143)


‘Allamah Dhahabi (rahimahullah) states that this statement of his is mutawatir [i.e. has reached the highest level of authenticity due to the number of chains].

(Siyaru A’alamin Nubala, vol. 6 pg. 260)



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
