What is authenticity of following narration?

لكل بني أنثى عصبة ينتمون إليه إلا ولد فاطمة، فأنا وليهم وأنا عصبتهم

‘Every [child] links himself to his paternal family except the children of Fatimah, for I am in charge of them and they will be attributed/linked to me’



Imam Tabarani (rahimahullah) and other Muhaddithun have recorded this narration with a weak chain.

(Al Mu’jamul Kabir, Hadith: 2632, Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 4 pg. 224)


However, ‘Allamah Sakhawi (rahimahullah) has stated that the Hadith gains strength from other corroborating narrations. The Hadith is sufficiently supported.

(Al Maqasidul Hasanah, Hadith: 821)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
