I came across to beautiful hadith from Imam Jafar as-Sadiq (rahimahullah), which said:
أوصيكم بأصحاب نبيكم لا تسبوهم، الذين لم يحدثوا بعده حدثاً، ولم يئووا محدثاً؛ فإن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم أوصى بهم الخير
I advise to you regarding the Companions of your prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa sallam), don’t abuse them, who did not bring any innovation in the deen and never supported any innovator and the Prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa sallam) ordered to behave well towards them.
Source: Biharul Anwar (22/305-306)
It is easy to change the meaning of this hadith in shia way, that Imam advised not to abuse those companions which didn’t bring any innovation. And we all know that shias use to accuse companions not simple in innovations but also in the disbelief.
BUT! If you would check the footnote from shia editor, you would see interesting information which force me to belief that Majlisi, or any other shia scholar work hard on edition of this hadith.
في المصدر: لا تسبوهم وهم الذين.
In the (original) source written: Don’t abuse them, and they didn’t
Let me put this part into the context:
don’t abuse them, and they did not bring any innovation in the deen and never supported any innovator
don’t abuse them, which did not bring any innovation in the deen and never supported any innovator
