Shia sheikh, which was named by them as Saduq (truthful) lied upon our imam in his book.
In “Ilal ash-sharae” (2/467) he quoted:
ابراهيم بن محمد ابن سفيان يقول انما كانت عداوة أحمد بن حنبل مع علي بن أبي طالب (ع) ان جده ذا الثدية الذي قتله علي بن أبي طالب يوم النهروان وان كان رئيس الخوارج
Ibrahim ibn Muhammad ibn Sufyan saying: “Enmity of Ahmad ibn Hanbal to Ali ibn Abi Talib (alaihi salam) was due to his grandfather Zull Thadiyah was the one who was killed by Ali ibn Abi Talib in the day of Nahrawan, and he was the head of khawarij.
It’s blatant lie. First of all imam Ahmad, was Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Hanbal ibn Hilal ibn Asad ibn Idris ibn Abdullah ibn Hayyan ibn Abdullah ibn Anasibn Awf ibn Qasid, Abu `Abd Allah al-Shaybani.
Second whoever would say that he was enemy of imam Ali is a liar, it’s enough to read his Musnad, which is full with narrations regarding merits of Ali.
