حدثنا عبد الله بن مروان عن الهيثم بن عبد الرحمن عمن حدثه عن علي بن أبي طالب رضى الله عنه قال يخرج رجل قبل المهدي من أهل بيته بالمشرق يحمل السيف على عاتقه ثمانية أشهر يقتل ويمثل ويتوجه إلى بيت المقدس فلا يبلغه حتى يموت

Al-Haytham bin Abd-Al-Rahman narrated based someone that Ali bin Abi Taleb (r.a.), who is the cousin, son-in-law, and the 4th successor (Caliph) of Prophet Mohammad صلى الله عليه وسلم said: "A man will come out from the East before the Mahdi, from his Household (family), carrying a sword for 8 months, killing and maiming people. He heads toward Jerusalem and dies once he reaches (conquers) it." (Nuaim Ibn Hammad's Kitab Al-Fitan)

Is it a sahih hadith?

'Abdullah ibn Marwan' narrated us from 'Al-Haitham ibn Abd Al-Rehman' from 'Someone' who narrated it from 'Ali ibn Abi Talib'

This particular chain of narration is broken; one narrator is unknown (majhool ). We do not know who heard it from Ali (r.a). Therefore, it does not fulfill a basic criterion of being a sahih hadith.

  • A more correct translation of the statement is:"... from a person whom narrated (him) from 'Ali ibn abi Talib". – Medi1Saif Sep 12 '16 at 9:12
