Dear brothers and sisters, one of our brothers just became father. The child is very weak, and really needs mercy from Allah to stay alive.
Please don’t forget this little brother in your prayers. Barakallahu fikum.
This is a lengthy article divided into three parts.
1. New phenomena: Outright rejection of the very existence of Ibn Saba’ by a contemporary Shia scholars and propagandists
2. Ibn Saba’ the Jew in Shia books – an unknown reality to many Shias
3. Shia Objection: Ibn Saba’ did existed, but Tashayyu’ (Shiism) and the Imamite sect are innocent of him
All Sunni and Shia authorities were agreed upon (the existence and reality of Abdullah bin Saba’ (although the Shia sect of course tries to deny that the foundation of Rafhd/rejectionis was taken by a Jew) until the Orientalists such as Bernard Lewis, Julius Wellhausen, Friedlander, and Caetani Leone started to cast doubt about the existence of Abdullah bin Saba’, and they were followed in that by ignorants such as Taha Hussain, Muhammad Kaamil Hussain, Adnan Ibrahim and other pro-Shia Sunnis. Needless to say that the Rafidha scholars jumped on the wagon and (in contrary to their forefathers) suddenly claimed that Ibn Saba’ is actually a myth created by the evil Umayyads to tarnish the reputation of the Shias (a claim by the likes of Murtadha Al-’Askari, Muhammad Aal Kashif Al-Ghita etc.). Prior to 1300H (1900CE) there was no dispute about this matter at all. The contemporary Shia found in the writings of those Orientalists what was the delight of the eye and thus they began authoring in order to cast doubt about the existence of Abdullah bin Saba’, as this would allow them to dismiss a large part of the criticism against them and their sect.
As stated before, contemporary Rawafidh (in opposition to their classical scholars) …

People who spend some of their time in browsing our blog, already seen how many shia scholars did believe in tahrif of Quran. I decided to make a fihrist of their names.

Fiqh of Taqqiyah:
Shaykh and alim of shias al-Muhaqiq al-Karki in his book “Nafahatul Hut fi Lan Jibt wal Taghut” (p 115) said:
I say: This beautiful hadeeth is a proof that Abu Bakr and Umar didn’t believe in the prophecy of Messenger (Muhammad) neither to his Ismah, that he didn’t speak from his own desire, but the revealed revelation.
Muhammad Baqir al-Majlisi in his book “Biharul anwar” (40/72) cited other shia scholar ibn Tawus saying:
رأيت كتابا كبيرا مجلدا في مناقب أهل البيت عليهم السلام تأليف أحمد ابن حنبل فيه أحاديث جليلة قد صرح فيها نبيهم محمد صلى الله عليه وآله بالنص على علي بن أبي طالب عليه السلام بالخلافة على الناس ليس فيها شبهة عند ذوي الانصاف وهي حجة عليهم
I have seen a book in one big volume, regarding Manaqib of Ahlalbayt, which was written by Ahmad ibn Hanbal. In that book lots beautiful ahadeeth where THEIR PROPHET MUHAMMAD (sallalahu alaihi wa ala ali) clearly pointed to caliphate of Ali ibn Abu Talib (alaihi salam) upon people, leaving no way to doubt (it)
Allah said in the Quran:
[Shakir 5:87] O you who believe! do not forbid (yourselves) the good things which Allah has made lawful for you and do not exceed the limits; surely Allah does not love those who exceed the limits.
Shaykh of shias allama al-Majlisi in “Uyunul Hayat” (1/348) narrated:
Narrated Ali ibn Ibrahim WITH AUTHENTIC CHAIN, in his Tafseer commentary of verse “ O you who believe! do not forbid (yourselves) the good things which Allah has made lawful for you” from Abu Abdullah (alaihi salam): It was revealed about commander of faithful (alaihi salam), Bilal and Uthman ibn Maudhun.
And commander of faithful (alaihi salam) promised that he would never sleep at night, as for Bilal, he promised that he never would eat during the day, as for Uthman ibn Maudhun he promised that he never would marry (meaning he would never have intercourse with wife).
And wife of the Uthman ibn Maudhun entered upon Aisha, and she was beautiful woman. Aisha asked: Why I see you upset?…. His wife said: By Allah, my husband didn’t approached me from such and such time….. (when prophet sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa sallam entered to Aisha, she said that to him)
He went out, and called to congregational prayer. People gathered, and minbar was set, he praised Allah, then said: What happen with group which prohibited upon themselves pure things? HEAR, I AM SLEEPING AT NIGHTS, MARRY (WOMAN) AND EAT DURING THE DAYS. AND WHOEVER WOULD GO ASTRAY FROM MY SUNNAH IS NOT FROM ME.
Allah said in the Quran:
[Pickthal 4:59] O ye who believe! Obey Allah, and obey the messenger and those of you who are in authority; and if ye have a dispute concerning any matter, refer it to Allah and the messenger if ye are (in truth) believers in Allah and the Last Day. That is better and more seemly in the end.
Shias claim that under “ those of you who are in authority” here we should understand their 12 Imams. Shias do believe that these Imams have absolutely authority over all people. And they do believe that Imams better than all prophets, expect last one (sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa sallam).
Question: Why in this case, Allah ordered us in the issue which we are differ in, refer only to Him and his prophet? And he didn’t order to refer it to ” those of you who are in authority”?
Hafidh al-Iraqi said in “Sharhul alfiyatul hadeeth”: As for not the fabrications, then it is permitted to show softness in the chains, and transmitting, without announcing their weakness. If that is not about al-Ahkam or Beliefs, but about Targheeb and Tarheeb in speeches, stories, merits of deeds and others like these. But if (ahadeeth) are about al-Ahkams of Sharia from halal and haram, or about beliefs, like Sifaat of Allah Taala, then it is not permitted to show softness (in accepting chains of such). And from scholars which seen that it is permitted to show softness (regarding weak chains of ahadeth in Targheeb and Tarheeb and etc), and show proofs for that from Imams: Abdurrahman ibn Mahdi, Ahmad ibn Hanbal, Abdullah ibn Mubarak and others. (Quoted from Ajwibatul Fadeela of imam Lucknawi p 39-40)
Hafidh ibn Hajr quotes Ali :
ولا يبلغني عن أحد يفضلني عليهما إلا جلدته حد المفتري
“I will lash anyone who prefers me over Abu Bakr and Omar, the lashing of a slanderer.”
[Lisan al-Mizan, Vol. III P. 290]
