Sunni vs Shia narrations from ahlul bait, who narrated most?
This finding compare the narrations of ahlul sunnah from ahlul bait in their most authentic books that with the narrations in shia’s most authentic books.
Also narrations of ahlul bait vs narrations of the best sahaba Abu Bakr, Umar and Uthman (ra).
Narrations of Ali Bin Abi Talib (ra)
Ahlul Sunnah depended on narrations from Ahlul Bait on a large scale, the narrations of Ali Bin Abi Talib from Messenger (SAW) in Bukhari with repetition (98) and with non-repetition (34). And his (ra) narrations in Sahih Muslim (38).
So that makes 72 narrations in Ahlul Sunnah’s most authentic books.
That makes the narrations of Ali from messenger (SAW) more than the narrations of Abu Bakr (ra) from Messenger (SAW).
And more than the narrations of Umar (ra) from messenger (saw).
And more than the narrations of Uthman (ra) from messenger (saw).
So will the shia now tell that Sunnis are enemies of Abu Bakr, Umar and Uthman?
In shia’s most authentic Book:
As for as narrations of Ali from messenger in shia’s most authentic Book Al-Kafi is just 66…not to forget out of that 2/3 are fabrication according shia standards.
Narrations of Fatimah (ra)
Ahlul Sunnah’s most authentic Books:
As for narrations of Fatimah (ra) from Messenger (SAW) in sunni’s authentic books than there is one narration in Sahih Bukhari no.(4462)
Shia’s most authentic Book:
While there is ZERO narration in the whole kafi of fatimah (ra) from messenger (SAW). A book (kafi) that is divided into 9 volumes contains Zero narration!!!
Narrations of Al-Hussein (ra)
Ahlul Sunnah’s most authentic Books:
There are total 4 ahadeeths in Sahih Bukhari and Muslim… Hussein from Ali from Messenger
Book Juma No. 1127, and Book Five obligatory No. 3091. The same in Sahih Muslim.
In Shia’s Authentic Book:
And in Kafi than there is just one narration, same for Hassan also.
Muhammad Al-Baqir (rh)
Now coming to Imam Muhammad Al-Baqir (rh), the great Imam, the unique one, great narrator. His narrations in 9 Books = 240 narrations.
Now let us compare the narrations of Al-Baqir that with whom?!? The Best man after messengers in the eyes of Ahlul Sunnah, Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq (ra) the truthful.
By Allah that you should know the justness of Ahlul Sunnah, for truth is very dear and justice is difficult, so what is with these people know not and from the truth they turn!!!
Narrations of Muhammad Al-Baqir in Sahih Muslim (19) narrations. Whereas narrations of Abu Bakr as Siddiq (9) narrations.
So which justice is after this!!
But narrations of Baqir in Sunan Al-Nisai (56) whereas narrations of Abu Bakr (ra) is (22).
So is it right for an equitable person to charge Ahlul Sunnah for neglecting traditions of Ahlul Bait!!
Jaffar As-Sadiq (rh)
Now we come to narrations of that unique Imam Jaffar As Sadiq. His narrations in 9 hadeeths books = 143 narrations
* Some* Books and sayingings of Scholars. There is lot to translate on this but due to lack of time I sufficed it with this only.
Let us quote the sayings of a Sunni scholar Ibn Kathir who said: “The most sound link is that of Jaffar from Muhammad from Ali from Al-Hussein from Ali (ra), this is the GOLDEN CHAIN.” Look in his Book “Al Baith Alhathith Gair Ma’moor” (الباعث الحثيث غير مأمور)
Ahlul Hadeeths (of Ahlul Sunnah) have written on Virtues of narrations from Ahlul Bait, books like ‘Virtues of Ali (فضائل علي) or Great specialities (الخصائص الكبرى) by Al-Nisai and Virtues of Fatimah by Al-Suyuti, whereas in Al-Bukhari there are many chapters on virtues of Ahlul bait and also in Muslim. Not to mention many other sunni books that speak on virtues of ahlul bait.
