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”



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.
