The Hadith: 'I created you from the light of My face...'

Q: `Aly ibn Abu Talib (may Allah be pleased with him) said to the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), “Ask your Lord on our behalf from what thing He created you?” The Prophet (peace be upon him) asked Allah, saying, “O my Lord, from what did You create me?” Allah (Exalted and Glorified be He) replied, “I created you from the light of My Face. (Part No. 4; Page No. 471) I divided the light of My Face into three portions; from one portion I created you, from the second I created your wives and from the third I created the ones who love you from among your Ummah (nation).” Please explain the degree of authenticity of this Hadith.


A: This Hadith is falsely attributed to the Prophet (peace be upon him), and has no basis in the accredited books of Hadith.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
