Waqifiya, Zaydiya in the light of shia narrations

Hurr al-Amili in “Wasailu shia” 28/351-352, Majlisi in “Biharul anwar” 50/274-275,

[ 34943 ] 40 ـ سعيد بن هبة الله الراوندي في ( الخرائج والجرائح ) عن أحمد بن محمد بن مطهر ، قال : كتب بعض أصحابنا إلى أبي محمد ( عليه السلام ) يسأله عمن وقف على أبي الحسن موسى ( عليه السلام ) ، فكتب : لا تترحم على عمك وتبرأ منه أنا إلى الله منه بريء ، فلا تتولهم ، ولا تعد مرضاهم ، ولا تشهد جنائزهم ، ولا تصل على أحد منهم مات أبدا ، من جحد إماما من الله أو زاد إماما ليست إمامته من الله كان كمن قال : ( إن الله ثالث ثلثة ) إن الجاحد أمر آخرنا جاحد أمر أولنا . . . الحديث .

40 – Sa`id b. Hibatullah ar-Rawandi in al-Khara’ij wa ‘l-Jara’ih from Ahmad b. Muhammad b. Mutahhar. He said: One of our companions wrote to Abu Muhammad عليه السلام asking him about waqf upon Abu ‘l-Hasan Musa عليه السلام (waqf: stopping. i.e. one who believed that Imam Musa al-Kadhim عليه السلام was the Qa’im and denied the Imamate of his son عليه السلام). So he wrote: Do not ask for mercy upon your uncle and be quit of him (i.e. renounce him). To Allah I am quit of him. So do not befriend them, and do not visit their sick, and do not witness their funerals, and do no pray upon one who dies from them ever. Whoever denies an Imam from Allah or adds an Imam whose Imamate is not from Allah is as one who said “Verily Allah is a third of three” (5:73). Verily a denier of the affair (or, command) of the last of us is a denier of the affair of the first of us.

Their other sheikh Muhammad Hassan Jawahiri in his book “Jawahir al-kalam” 6/67 quoted hadith:

ان الزيدية والواقفة والنصاب بمنزلة واحدة

“Zaydiya, Waqifiyah and Nawaseeb are at the same level”.

Toose in “Ikhiyar marifatol rijal” (2/756), Hurr al-Amili in “Wasael ush shia” (9/229):

862 – وجدت بخط جبريل بن أحمد في كتابه حدثني سهل بن زياد الادمي قال : حدثني محمد بن أحمد بن الربيع الأقرع قال : حدثني جعفر بن بكير قال : حدثني يونس بن يعقوب قال قلت لأبي الحسن الرضا ع : أعطى هؤلاء الذين يزعمون أن أباك حي من الزكاة شيئا؟ قال : لا تعطهم فإنهم كفار مشركون زنادقة
(chain) from Yunus ibn Yaqub: I said to Abul Hasan al-Ridha (a): “Shoul I give from zakat something top those who claim that your father is alive?” He answered: “Don’t give them indeed they are disbelievers, polytheists and zanadiqah”.

Abu Amr al-Kashi in his rijal quoted imam saying:

409- حمدويه، قال حدثنا يعقوب بن يزيد، قال حدثنا محمد بن عمر، عن محمد بن عذافر، عن عمر بن يزيد، قال : سألت أبا عبد الله (عليه السلام) عن الصدقة على الناصب و على الزيدية فقال لا تصدق عليهم بشي‏ء و لا تسقهم من الماء إن استطعت، و قال لي الزيدية هم النصاب.

409 – Hamdawayh said: Ya`qub b. Yazid narrated to us.  He said: Muhammad b. `Umar b. `Udhafir narrated to us from `Umar b. Yazid.  He said: I asked Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام about (giving) sadaqa upon the Nasib and the Zaydiyya.  So he said: Do not give sadaqa (of) anything upon them and do not give them to drink of water if you are able to.  And he said to me: The Zaydiyya, they are the Nassab.

410- محمد بن الحسن، قال حدثني أبو علي الفارسي، قال حكى منصور، عن الصادق علي بن محمد بن الرضا (عليهم السلام) : أن الزيدية و الواقفة و النصاب بمنزلة عنده سواء.

410 – Muhammad b. al-Hasan said: Abu `Ali al-Farsi narrated to me.  He said: Mansur related from as-Sadiq `Ali b. Muhammad b. ar-Ridaعليهم السلام that the Zaydiyya, the Waqifa, and the Nassab are according to him of an equal status.

411- محمد بن الحسن، قال حدثني أبو علي، عن يعقوب بن يزيد، عن ابن أبي عمير، عمن حدثه، قال سألت محمد بن علي الرضا (عليه السلام) عن هذه الآية وُجُوهٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ خاشِعَةٌ عامِلَةٌ ناصِبَةٌ قال :نزلت في النصاب و الزيدية و الواقفة من النصاب.

411 – Muhammad b. al-Hasan said: Abu `Ali narrated to me from Ya`qub b. Yazid from Ibn Abi `Umayr from the one who narrated to him.  He said: I asked Muhammad b. `Ali ar-Rida عليه السلام about this verse “Faces on that day humbled, labouring, toilworn” (88:2-3).  He said: It was revealed about the Nassab and the Zaydiyya and the Waqifa from the Nassab.

412- حمدويه، قال حدثنا أيوب بن نوح، قال حدثنا صفوان، عن داود بن فرقد، عن أبي عبد الله (عليه السلام) قال : ما أحد أجهل منهم يعني العجلية، إن في المرجئة فتيا و علما و في الخوارج فتيا و علما، و ما أحد أجهل منهم.

412 – Hamdawayh said: Ayyub b. Nuh narrated to us.  He said: Safwan narrated to us from Dawud b. Farqad from Abu `Abdillah عليه السلام.  He said: There is no one more ignorant than them, meaning the `Ijliyya (followers of the Zaydi Harun b. Sa`d al-`Ijli, close in doctrine to the Batriyya).  Verily in the Murji’a there is youth (or generosity, honorableness) and knowledge and in the Khawarij there is youth and knowledge.  And there is no one more ignorant than them.

And here compete chapter on zaydiya from book “Rijal al-Kashi”:
Amazing fact is in shia books of ahadeth are many narrators from waqafiyah.
Waqafiyah were sect that believed in the immorality of Musa Kazim, claiming that he would return as a Mahdi before dooms-day. They also rejected the claim of his son, Ali ar-Rida.
As we can see from above mentioned narrations imams compared waqifiya to nawaseeb, ugliest sect from the shia point of view. And nawaseeb were kuffar and najas in accordance to agreed opinion between imami scholars. Very logical question arise from all of this, why does shias use to narrate from people who were nawaseeb in the view of shia aimma? Why does modern rafidah accuse our scholars for narrating from khawarij, if they very own books of ahadeth are full with nawaseeb narrators?
Just think about this, obviously it’s another proof that all shia usool, and in this particular case, usool of hadeth is nothing but a great joke.
Wa Allahu Alam.
