Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)’s love for Hasan and Usamah ibn Zayd (radiyallahu ‘anhum)

Question

Can you confirm the source and authenticity of this narration:

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would hold Usamah ibn Zayd and  Hassan [ibn ‘Ali] radiyallahu ‘anhum and say:

“O Allah love them for I love them”

 

Answer

Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration in his Sahih on the authority of Sayyiduna Usamah ibn Zayd (radiyallahu ‘anhuma). The narration is therefore authentic.

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 3735, 3747)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
