Hadeeth: Whoever is pleased to live my life and die my death…
Rafidi Abdulhussain said:
Consider his statement peace be upon him and his progeny “Whoever is pleased to live my life and die my death and then reside in the Garden of Eden planted for me by my Lord then let him take `Ali as the wali after me and let him accept the authority of whoever `Ali places in charge and let him follow the examples of my progeny after me for they are my offspring: they are created out of my own mould and blessed with my understanding and knowledge; therefore woe unto those who deny their favours from among my nation who cut their ties with them; may Allah never grant them my intercession.” (Murajiat letter 48, hadith #24).
Hadith is pure lie (“Silsila ad-daeefa” #894).
