Is it proved by sunni hadith that prophet's ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) nikah to bibi Khadija was recited by Hazrat Abu Talib?

Sister,  I hope will be fine and praying during the month of Ramzan for keeping all of us away from the hell fire. 

Hz Abu Talib  (عليه السلام) is a firm believer in Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and his prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم).  he is termed as Momin e kamil. his case is like that of the Momin of ale Firon who kept his belief in concealment to serve the islam and protect the prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and his followers Muslims. There are reports in history of islam that the marriage sermon of the prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) was recited  by Abu talib.

"All the sayings of Abu Talib confirmed his faithfulness besides his great deeds, his jihad for the sake of the mission and the witnesses of the Prophet (S) and the infallible imams of his progeny."

Some of Abu Talib’s sayings concerning the subject.

He recited:

The Lord of people Who has no partner
The Liberal Giver, the Initiator, the Resurrector.
Whoever is under the Heaven and whoever is above the Heaven
Are rightfully His servants.2

These verses were clear evidence showing that the sayer was a monotheist believing sincerely in the One and Only God without any bit of polytheism or apostasy.

When he talked about Allah he used the phrase “the Lord of people (or the King of people)” which was an Islamic expression mentioned in the Quran:

The King (Lord) of people. (The Holy Quran, Shakir 114:2)

And he denied polytheism when he said, “Who has no partner”.

Then he talked about some of the attributes of Allah the Almighty. He described Him as the liberal Giver, the Initiator, Who had initiated the creation from nothing and the Resurrector, Who would resurrect His creatures after death. It was a clear confession of the great day; the Day of Resurrection when the scales of justice would be put to weigh the deeds where there would be no injustice or wrong.

Then he said in the other verse that all the creatures were servants of Allah; whether those, who were under the Heaven or those, who were above the Heaven.

Would monotheism be something other than this?

Did Abu Talib, after this saying, let an outlet for any doubter or suspector?

Was our saying “There is no god but Allah” in its monotheistic meaning clearer than these verses of Abu Talib?

Abu Talib recited too:

O you the witness of Allah!
Witness that I am on the religion of Prophet Ahmed.3
Let whoever deviates from the religion know that I am guided.4

Here Abu Talib confessed that he was on the religion of his nephew and then he said that whoever didn’t follow this religion would be deviant whereas he himself followed this religion and became guided.

By your God! Wasn’t this saying greater in meaning than to say: I am a Muslim?

If someone said to you that he was a Muslim, wouldn’t he be treated like the other Muslims concerning the rights and the obligations? Wouldn’t his blood, property and honor be protected and no one had any right to violate anything of that?

So what about this man; Abu Talib, who announced his faithfulness so loudly and who asked the witness of Allah to witness that he was guided by the religion of his nephew, that people denied his being a Muslim?

It was but deviation that covered the eyes thickly and prevented them from seeing the brightness of the truth!

Here is something else of Abu Talib’s poetry:

Allah had honored Prophet Muhammad,
Who became the most honored among all the peoples of Him.
Allah had derived a name for him
From His own name to glorify him;
The Lord was Mahmood5 and His apostle was Muhammad.6

These verses had many things of monotheism and confession of the prophecy of Prophet Muhammad (S).

In the tafasir of Sunnis it was recited by Abu Talib (عليه السلام). But sometimes you need to use reason and come to conclusions that Abu Talib (عليه السلام) was the only Guardian of Prophet Muhammad (saws), so of course it makes logical sense that the Guardian will make sure to perform the nikah and do the ceremony. From the khadijah side it was Waraqa ibn Nawfal. Both Abu Talib (عليه السلام) and waraqah were hanifs who could perfom our Prophet marriage.

when it came to his own Nikah this was recited by Hadhrath Abu Talib (عليه السلام), and the sermon that Abu Talib (عليه السلام) gave to the men of Quraysh who were present at the marriage, he made clear references to Tauheed (ones of Allah) and the lineage of Ibrahim (عليه السلام). Sunni scholar Halabi records the sermon:

“Praise be to Allah Who made us from the seed of Abraham and progeny of Ismaeel. He granted as a Sacred house and a place of pilgrimage. He made us to dwell in a secure sanctuary (haram), to which the fruits of everything are brought. He made us, moreover, arbiters in men’s affairs, and blessed for us this land in which we dwell.”
 Seerah al-Halabiyyah, volume 1 page 439, Urdu translation by Maulana Aslam Qasmi Deobandi

He was Hanif who practiced monotheism. 

But hadn't he converted to Christianity and become a priest? He was among the ones who recognized the signs of prophet-hood in Rasoolallah (S) which were mentioned in the Evangel? 

It's Waraqah ibn Nawfal, the cousin of Ummul Mu'mineen Khadeeja (sa) that we are talking about, isn't it?
