shia narrators in sahih al-bukhari


link of al-islam.org

This websites quotes five narrtors:

1. Ubaydullah bin Musa: is not a rafidhi.

He narrated the hadith of Ali, “The best of us after the Prophet are Abu Bakr and Umar.” (Siyar A’alam Al-Nubala)

2. Abbad bin Ya’qoob: is a rafidhi.

However, he only has one narration in Saheeh Al-Bukhari which is maqroon, which means that there were two chains that narrated the same hadith. So, this doesn’t imply a strengthening of his hadith by Al-Bukhari.

3. Abdulmalik bin A’ayan: seems to be a rafidhi.

However, he only has one narration in Saheeh Al-Bukhari which is maqroon, which means that there were two chains that narrated the same hadith. So, this doesn’t imply a strengthening of his hadith by Al-Bukhari.

Bukhari did include other narrators that have narrated the same hadiths of Abbad bin Ya’qoub and Abdulmalik bin A’ayan & therefore due to same matn bukhari authenticated it. Below is that chain:

حدثني سليمان حدثنا شعبة عن الوليد ح و حدثني عباد بن يعقوب الأسدي أخبرنا عباد بن العوام عن الشيباني عن الوليد بن العيزار عن أبي عمرو الشيباني عن ابن مسعود رضي الله عنه
أن رجلا سأل النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم أي الأعمال أفضل قال الصلاة لوقتها وبر الوالدين ثم الجهاد في سبيل الله

and…

حدثنا الحميدي حدثنا سفيان حدثنا عبد الملك بن أعين وجامع بن أبي راشد عن أبي وائل عن عبد الله رضي الله عنه قال
قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من اقتطع مال امرئ مسلم بيمين كاذبة لقي الله وهو عليه غضبان قال عبد الله ثم قرأ رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم مصداقه من كتاب الله جل ذكره
{ إن الذين يشترون بعهد الله وأيمانهم ثمنا قليلا أولئك لا خلاق لهم في الآخرة ولا يكلمهم الله }
الآية

Note: that I red-bolded the rafitdi and black-bolded the other narrator that narrated the same hadith i.e. non-rafidi.

4. Abdulrazaq Al-San’aani: is not a rafidhi.

He stated that he preferred the Shaikhain over Ali and that he loves them and those that don’t love them are not mu’min. (Tahtheeb)

5. Awf ibn Abi Jameela: doesn’t seem to be a rafidhi.

He has been referred to as trustworthy by most scholars and a few have referred to him as a Shia. The only person that called him a rafidi was Bindaar. Plus, the inclusion of  Al-Bukhari in his Saheeh makes it less likely that he was a rafidi.

Note: Also, the Shia narrators in Al-Bukhari weren’t necessarily twelvers. Twelvers were usually referred to as rafidhis. Shias, according to the scholars back then were those that preferred Ali over Uthman, but still preferred Abu Bakr and Omar to Ali. Rafidhis on the other hand hated the shaikhan and believed in raj’ah.

    Salam sheikh, Allah sat reward you for this useful website.
    I have one question, if a narrator is thiqa or trustworthy, and he narrates from a known liar, then this would constitute the thiqa narrator to be known to be from the manakeer. If the thiqa narrator knows that he is narrating from a liar, would that not downgrade his Adala from thiqa to weak?
