We know that
Imam Malik Ibn Anas < Nafi < Ibn Umar < The Prophet
Is famously praised as the “golden chain”, and Im also aware Imam al Shafi'i studied under Imam Malik for a while, and Imam Ahmad studied under Imam al Shafi’i
So I was just wondering if Imam Ahmad wrote a Hadith with the chain:
< al Shafi’i < Malik < Nafi < Ibn Umar < the Prophet
as seeing the golden chain extended with three of the four imams is just extremely appealing to me.
I don’t remember ever reading it in the Musnad Ahmad although I could have missed it, and i did not find anything using word searches.
Is there any Hadith with this chain?
