Bilal ibn Rabah is Majhool/Uknown according to al-Khoei & other Shia scholars


Companion and Muazen of the Prophet (saw), Bilal ibn Rabah, is Majhool/Unknown according to al-Khoei & other Shia scholars.

There you go, a Shia fatwa by their scholar ‘Ali aal Muhssen “علي آل محسن” stating that the companion Bilal ibn Rabah (ra) is “Majhoul/Unknown” according to him:

السؤال :

 بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

سماحة الشيخ علي آل محسن حفظه الله تعالى،

ما هو حال بلال بن رباح عند الشيعة الإمامية أعزهم الله؟ لا نجد له ذكراً بعد وفاة النبي (ص) إلا عودته للمدينة من الشام و أذانه في حياة الزهراء عليها السلام. هل كانت له أدوار أخرى في أيام الإمام علي (ع) و غصبهم للخلافة؟ أو الإمام الحسن و الحسين (ع)؟

هل هناك اختلاف في حاله عند العلماء؟ و إن كان يوجد فما هو رأيكم أنتم؟

وفقكم الله لكل خير…

الجواب:

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته، وبعد:

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

اختلف علماؤنا الأعلام في تحقيق حال بلال بن رباح، فمنهم من وثقه، كالعلامة الحلي قدس سره، حيث ذكره في الثقات في القسم الأول من كتابه خلاصة الأقوال، ص 27، وكذا فعل ابن داود في رجاله، ص 58. والمامقاني في رجاله 1/183.

ومنهم من عده ممدوحا، كالمجلسي قدس سره في رجاله ص 170 وفي كتاب الوجيزة، ص 39. فتكون أحاديثه عنده من الحسان.

ومنهم من توقف فيه، فحكم بجهالة حاله، كالسيد الخوئي قدس سره في معجم رجال الحديث 3/364، وهذا هو القول الراجح عندي، والله العالم. والسلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Question:

Bismillah,

 

Dear esteemed Sheikh ‘Ali aal Muhssen may Allah preserve you,

 

What is the condition of Bilal ibn Rabah according to the Imami Shia? we find no mention of him after the Prophet “S” passed away except his return to Madinah from al-Sham and that he performed the call to prayer during the life of al-Zahraa (as). Did he play a role during the Caliphate of Imam ‘Ali “‘a” and when they stripped him of the Caliphate? or Imam al-Hassan and al-Hussein “‘a”?

 

Is there a difference of opinion amongst the scholars and if so what is your stance?

 

May Allah guide you to all that is good.

Answer:

al-Salamu Aleykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,

 

Bismillah al-Rahman al-Raheem,

 

Our top scholars have differed on the condition of Bilal bin Rabah, some consider him reliable/trustworthy like al-‘Allamah al-Helli may Allah sanctify his secret when he mentioned him amongst the Trustworthy (thiqat) in the first part of his book Khulasat al-Aqwal p27, and so did Ibn Dawood in his Rijal p58, and al-Mamaqani in his Rijal 1/183.

 

Some considered him as being praised like al-Majlisi may Allah sanctify his secret in his Rijal p170 and in the book al-Wajeezah p39, so his narrations would be graded as “Hasan” according to him.

 

And some of our scholars has ruled that his condition is unknown like al-Sayyed al-Khoei may Allah sanctify his secret in his book of Rijal 3/364, and I share his opinion on this matter, Allah knows best, wal Salamu Aleykum wa Rahmatullah.

  1. LATER ULEMAH DEPEND ON WHAT IS RECORDED IN AHADEES AND HISTORY . THERE HAVE BEEN SO MANY FALSE AND FABRICATED AHADEES MANUFACTURING COMPANIES IN AHLE SUNNAH THAT THE LATER DAY ULEMAH GET CONFUSED WHAT TO BELIEVE AND WHAT NOT TO BELIEVE . SO WHAT IS THE PROBLEM . WHAT WRONG SHIA ULEMAH HAVE DONE , OR ARE YOU NOW HAVE NO FITNAH TO CREATE .THIS IS NOT A MATTER OF FIQH SO THAT IT MAY BE TALLIED WITH THE HOLY QORA’AN AND THE TRUTH COMES OUT ..

    What stupidity from these “scholars”! And it is not an isolated instance either from them; this stupidity is part of the ongoing fabric of their school.
    Great Companions who stood form in the face of extreme hardship are “unknown” to Khui; and yet he bases his religion on the alleged cave-dwelling Imam who can’t even be proved to ever have been born.

  3. DID BILAL EVER SAID ”AS SALAAT KHAIR AL MINAN NAUM” NO NEVER , THEN WHOEVER INTRODUCED IT IS AN INNOVATER (Bidati) HE AS WELL AS HIS FOLLOWERS ARE APOSTATE JAHANNUMI .
