Assalamu Alaikom. I have a question regarding the link between Imam Ali (as) and Krishna of the Hindus. I have read hadith saying that Imam Ali (as) said to a Christian Monk that “The Hindus call me Kishen Kishen (Krishna).” It is narrated through Ammar-e Yasir, Jabir bin Abdullah, Malik-e Ashtar and Miqdad Aswad al Kindi. Is this hadith Sahih, meaning Imam Ali (as) and Krishna are the same?

wslm thank you for the question. the above hadith is not authentic. imam Ali and Krishna are not the same.
