Unfortunately Shias (including their scholars) are often so blinded in their hatred towards the Sahaba that they forget their own books and verdicts. Take for instance Abu Bakr dispute with Fatimah (رضوان الله عليهما) in regards to the former Jewish land of Fadak. They do not just accuse Abu Bakr of denying Fatimah’s so called right (let’s say based on a hadith he misunderstood or something), rather they claim that he bluntly fabricated a narration. This is pure Shia bias and shows how deep their grudge is for this great man. You will often hear Shias saying:
I believe that she got angry because Abu Bakr usurped her right and concocted a hadith about the Prophets not leaving inheritance …
Now here is the bloody truth:
1. Abu Bakr the truthful (Siddique) certainly did not ‘concocted’ anything. In fact, he simple repeated something that over TEN Sahaba heard from the the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him), among them major Bani Hashimi figures, including Ali Ibn Abi Talib himself!
Al-Kattani in “Nazm Al-Mutanaseera min Al-Hadith Al-Mutawatira” (272) wrote:
“The Narration that no one inherits from the Prophets and that everything that they leave behind is for charity is narrated by Al-Suyooti in “Azhar” via:
3) Ali Ibn Abi Talib (Hashimi)
4) Sad ibn Abi Vaqas
5) Abbas (Hashimi)
6) Abu Bakr
7) Abdurrahman ibn Auf
8. Zubayr Ibn Al-Awwam
9) Abu Hurayra
13) Ibn Abbas (Hashimi)
Thirteen companions in total! So this hadith is close to “Who will lie upon me …’ Ibn Hajar in “Amaliya Muhraja ala Muhtasaru ibn Al-Hajib Al-Asli” said: “This narration, is authentic and Mutawatir (mass-narrated)”.
Slip of mind of major Shia scholars of the past and present back up the Sunni stance:
Ayatollah Khomeini’s book: الحكومة الإسلامية الخميني صفحة93
(Al-Hukamah Al Islamiyyah, page 93):
Abu Abdullah (Ja’far Al-Sadiq) (ع) said that the Messenger of Allah (ص) said: “[…] verily, the scholars are the INHERITORS of the Prophets, and the Prophets DO NOT leave dinars and dirhams (i.e. money/wealth) as inheritance but they leave behind knowledge so whoever takes from it then he has acquired a huge fortune.”
Ayatollah Khomeini’s comment: This Hadith is SAHIH (authentic).
[Even Mullah Baqir Al-Majlisi authenticated the Hadith].
I guess Khomeini concocted a hadith about the Prophets not leaving inheritance?
“The Prophets did not leave dinars and dirhams as inheritance, but they left knowledge.” (al-Kafi, vol. 1 p. 42) (The same Hadith can be found in Sunni books!!! In Tirmidhi).
Mr Khomeini’s hatred and bias for Abu Bakr did not prevent him from using the SAHIH narration in their own books to back his “Wilayah Al-Faqih” theory, yet when it comes to Abu Bakr then it must be “concocted”!!!
