Zurarah: Most disliked shia companion according to imam


A sahih hadith in Usûl al-Kâfi, Book of Belief and Disbelief, page 223:

7 عنه، عن أحمد بن محمد، عن ابن محبوب، عن جميل بن صالح، عن أبي عبيدة الحذاء قال: سمعت أبا جعفر (عليه السلام) يقول: والله إن أحب أصحابي إلي أورعهم وأفقههم وأكتمهم لحديثنا وإن أسوأهم عندي حالا وأمقتهم للذي (4) إذا سمع الحديث ينسب إلينا ويروى عنا فلم يقبله إشماز منه وجحده وكفر من دان به وهو لايدري لعل الحديث من عندنا خرج وإلينا اسند، فيكون بذلك خارجا عن ولايتنا.

It is narrated from him (narrator of the Hadith above) from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn Mahbub from Jamil ibn Salih from abu ‘Ubaydah al-Hadhdha’ who has said the following: “I heard abu Ja’far, recipient of divine supreme covenant, saying, ‘By Allah, the most beloved to me of my companions are most restraining from the worldly attractions (sins), most knowledgeable in Fiqh (laws of Shari’a) and most secretive in our Hadith. Of the worst conditions among them and most disliked is the one who on hearing Hadith ascribes it to us and narrates it from us. Not only does he not accept it, also he abhors it and rejects it. He has made those who follow it turn to disbelief while he does not know. Perhaps the Hadith has come out from us and to us is ascribed and with this he will be out of our Walayah (guardianship).’”

Graded Sahîh by Majlisi in Mir’at al-‘Uqûl, vol. 9, page 191:

Wasn’t Zurârah the companion who narrated the most of the ahâdîth?😛

Was not one narrator who has narrated a large number of ahadeeth is Ibrahim al-Qummi. His son, Ali bin Ibrahim, is classed as thiqah and narrates ahadeeth through his father?

Doesn’t this make him among the most disliked companions who is less secretive?

Again in al-Kâfi, book of Taqiyyah, page 217

1 علي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه، عن ابن أبي عمير، عن هشام بن سالم وغيره عن أبي عبدالله (عليه السلام) في قول الله عزوجل: ” اولئك يؤتون أجر هم مرتين بما صبروا (قال: بما صبروا على التقية) ويدرؤن بالحسنة السيئة ” قال: الحسنة التقية والسيئة الاذاعة.

Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Hisham ibn Salim and others from abu ‘Abd Allah, recipient of divine supreme covenant, who has said the following: “About the words of Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy, ‘These will receive double reward for their forbearance, replacing evil by virtue. . . .,’ (28:54) the Imam said, ‘Their excercising patience with observing al-Taqiyyah (cautious protective measures) and their repelling evil by means of good deeds means: al-Taqiyyah is a good deed and publicity or disregarding al-Taqiyyah is evil.’

Graded Hasan like Sahîh by Majlisi in Mir’at al-‘Uqûl, vol.9, page 165

Again in al-Kâfi, book of Taqiyyah, page 221

23 أبوعلي الاشعري، عن محمد بن عبدالجبار، عن محمد بن إسماعيل، عن علي ابن النعمان، عن ابن مسكان، عن عبدالله بن أبي يعقور قال: سمعت أبا عبدالله (عليه السلام) يقول:
التقية ترس المؤمن والتقية حرز المؤمن، ولا إيمان لمن لاتقية له، إن العبد ليقع إليه الحديث من حديثنا فيدين الله عزوجل به فيما بينه وبينه، فيكون له عز افي الدنيا ونورا في الآخرة وإن العبد ليقع إليه الحديث من حديثنا فيذيعه فيكون له ذلا في الدنيا وينزع الله عزوجل ذلك النور منه.

Abu Ali al-Ash’ari has narrated from ‘Abd al-Jabbar from Muhammad ibn Isma’il from Ali ibn al-Nu’man from ibn Muskan from ‘Abd Allah ibn abu Ya’fur who has said the following: “I heard abu ‘Abd Allah, recipient of divine supreme covenant, saying, ‘Al-Taqiyyah for a believer is a shield and protection. One who does not observe al-Taqiyyah has no belief. A servant of Allah receives a Hadith from us and on that basis he follows the religion of Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy. It then is an honor for him in this world and light for him in the next world. A servant receives a Hadith from us and he makes it public and it becomes humiliation for him in this world and Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Holy, removes that light from him.’
