Commentaries upon the hadith:

Syeikh Nasiruddin al-Albani Rahimahullah in Silsilah al-Ahadis al-Dho’ifah wa al-Mawdhu’ah (4503) rules this hadith as dha’if (weak). There are other syawahid narrated by Ibn ‘Abbas, Abdullah bin al-Zubayr, Abi Sai’d al-Khudri and Anas bin Malik R.Anhum. Even though there are other chain of narrators, still, all of the sanad are criticized where all of them are very weak and cannot strengthen one another. Wallahua’lam.
