Opinions of Ahl ul-Jarh wat Ta’deel:

Those who criticized him:

1-    Imaam Yahya bin Ma’een (D. 233) said:

ضعيف
“Da’eef”
[ Taareekh Ibn Ma'een, narrated by ad-Dauri (2/493)]

It is said that Imaam Yahya bin Ma’een also said:

لا يكتب حديثه
“His narrations are not written down”
[Su’aalaat Al-Ajurri (4/10), Chain Weak]

2-    Imaam Muhammad bin Ismaa’eel al-Bukhaari (D. 256) said:

منكر الحديث
“Munkar ul-Hadeeth”
[ Taareekh al-Kabeer (7/218)]

3-    Imaam Abu Zur’ah ar-Raazi (D. 264) said:

واهي الحديث
“He is wasted in hadeeth”
[ Al-Jarh wat Ta’deel by Ibn Abi Haatim (7/152)]

4-    Imaam Abu Haatim ar-Raazi (D. 275) said:

ضعيف الحديث، منكر الحديث، لا يروي عَنْ أنس حديثا له أصل من رواية غيره
“Da’eef in Hadeeth, Munkar ul-Hadeeth, he did not narrate a single narration from Anas which had a basis from the narration of narrators other than him”
[ Al-Jarh wat Ta'deel by Ibn Abi Haatim (7/152)]

5-    Imaam Al-Nasaa’ee (D. 303) said:

متروك الحديث
“Matrook in Hadeeth”
[ Ad-Du'afa wal Matrokeen by al-Nasaa'ee (509)]

6-    Imaam Ibn Hibbaan (D. 354) said:

كَثِير بْن سُلَيْم هُوَ الذي يقال له: كَثِير بْن عَبد اللَّهِ يروي عَنْ أنس مَا ليس من حديثه ويضع عليه ثم يحدث به، لا يحل كتابة حديثه ولا الرواية عنه إِلا على سبيل الاختبار
“Katheer bin Sulaym who is also called Katheer bin Abdullah, he has narrated from Anas some narrations which were not among his narrations and he fabricated them on him, then he narrated from it. It is not permissible to neither write his narrations nor narrate from him except for the sake of examining”
[ Al-Majroheen by Ibn Hibbaan (2/223)]

Note: Ibn Hibbaan has mixed two separate narrators “Katheer bin Sulaym” and “Katheer bin Abdullah” as one; and he thought that they are one person. But this is not correct.

7-    Imaam Abu al-Hasan ad-Daaraqutni (D. 385) mentioned him in Ad-Du’afa wal Matrokeen (444).

8-    Imaam Abu Ahmed bin Adee al-Jarjaani (D. 365) mentioned some of his narrations from Anas bin Maalik and said:

وهذه الروايات، عَن أَنَس عامتها غير محفوظة
“And these narrations from Anas, most of them are unpreserved”
[ Al-Kaamil (7/200)]

9-    Imaam Shams ud-Deen adh-Dhahabi (D. 748) said:

ضعفوه
“They have weakened him”
[ Al-Kaashif (4633)]

10-          Haafidh Ibn Hajar al-Asqalaani (D. 852) said:

ضعيف
“Da’eef”
[ Taqreeb (5613)]

11-          Haafidh Noor ud-Deen al-Haythami (D. 807) said:

كَثِيرُ بْنُ سُلَيْمٍ ضَعِيفٌ
“Katheer bin Sulaym is Da’eef”
[ Majma az-Zawaaid (2/126, 7/175, 10/89, & 10/209)]

None

Conclusion:

Katheet bin Sulaym is Munkar ul-Hadeeth.
