al-Khui: Authentication of narrators by al-Hilli mean nothing.

In his “Mojam Rijal” (21/144), ayatolla al-Khui said:

وأما توثيق العلامة نفسه فلا يعتمد عليه بعدما تقدم غير مرة من أن توثيقات المتأخرين لا يمكن الاعتماد عليها

As for authentication by Allama himself, it couldn’t be relied upon, after (we) presented more than once that the tawtheeqaat from the late scholars cannot be relied upon.
