Hubshi bin Junada:
There are two routes that include Hubshi as a narrator.
- The first is the hadith in Al-Tabarani which comes through the path of Sulaiman bin Qarm who is weak. He has been weakened by Yahya, Abu Zur’ah, Abu Hatim, Al-Nasa’ee, Ibn Hibban, and Al-Hakim.
- The second chain is the hadith of Asbagh bin Nubata. In the report, he is among those that Ali asks if they have heard the hadith of Ghadir. Hubshi is one of those that affirms that he did. However, the chain includes mostly anonymous narrators. Also, it include Al-Asbagh bin Nubata who was weakened by many hadith scholars. Abu Bakr bin Ayyash called him a liar as well. See his biography in Mizan Al-I’itidal.
Habeeb bin Budail:
The narration can be found in Usd Al-Ghaba 1/461, however, it does not include a chain, and therefore, cannot be accepted as authentic.
Huthaifa bin Usaid Abu Sareeha:
The narration of Abu Sareeha comes through three paths.
- The first narration can be found in many sources including Imam Ahmad’s Fadha’il Al-Sahaba, Sunan Al-Tirmithi and Mu’jam Al-Tabarani, through the narration of Salama bin Kuhail from Abi Al-Tufail from Abi Sareeha or Zaid bin Arqam. This chain is authentic, however, unfortunately, there is confusion as to whether the companion that is mentioned is Abu Sareeha or Zaid bin Arqam.
- The second path can be found in Tareekh Dimashq through Zaid bin Hasan Al-Anmati, however, he is weak according to Abu Hatim Al-Razi.
- A third chain can be found that goes through the path of Abu Haroon Al-Abdi. Abu Haroon Al-Abdi was described as a liar by Ibn Ulaya, Ibn Ma’een, Uthman bin Abi Shaybah, and Al-Jawzajani. Refer to his biographies of Ali bin Zaid and Abu Haroon in Tahtheeb Al-Kamal.
Huthaifa bin Al-Yaman:
The only chain provided for the hadith of Huthaifa bin Al-Yaman is one that is taken from Tafseer Furat Al-Kufi. This is a Twelver source and not a Sunni source. Furthermore, the narration is not authentic according to Shia standards either.
Hasaan bin Thabit:
Al-Amini provides poetry that has been falsely attributed to Hasaan bin Thabit in which he speaks of Al-Ghadir. The poetry can be found in Twelver sources like Kitab Sulaim bin Qais. Al-Marzabani though does quote it through Abu Haroon Al-Abdi. Refer to the section about Huthaifa bin Usaid above for more on Abu Haroon.
Al-Hasan bin Ali:
No chain is provided for the hadith of Al-Hasan bin Ali.
Al-Hussain bin Ali:
The narrations of Al-Hussain can be found in three main chains.
- The first is through the hadith of Dawud bin Sulaiman Al-Ghaazi, who has been declared a liar by Ibn Ma’een. See his biography in Mizan Al-I’itidal.
- The second is the hadith of Ahmad bin Ali bin Sadaqa who was declared as a liar by Al-Daraqutni. See his biography in Mizan Al-I’itidal. Both narrations are from Zain Al-Fataa.
- The third path comes through Fudhail bin Yusuf from Sa’eed bin Uthman through the path of Ibn Uqda. Both narrators are unknown and Ibn Uqda has been accused of fabricating.
Conclusion: The only Companion above that may have narrated hadith Al-Ghadir authentically is Huthaifa bin Usaid Abu Sareeha.
