Shia scholar fabricates a story about Abu Hurairah


Shia scholar makes up a false story and lies about Abu Hurayrah

We know that Shias have hatred for Hadhrat Abu Huraira (r.a). Shias try to show him as a liar whenever they have a chance. The books of Shia polemic writers are proof of it. Open the book of Tijani and you will find a long list of accusations on Hadhrat Abu Huraira (r.a) in an attempt to tarnish his credibility.

I was reading the book of Shia scholar Murtadha Mutahhari, which is “al-Seeratu al-Nabawiyya”. He lies, or copies the lie of his predecessors, upon Hadhrat Abu Huraira (r.a) in order to show him as a person who would fabricate ahadeeth (i.e the Prophetic traditions).

Here is what Murtadha Mutahhari says:

عندما نصّب معاوية ابا هريرة عاملا له في مكة كان رل قد استورد بضلا ليبيعه .ولكن سوقه كانت كاسدة فلم يشتره أحد. فجاء الى أبي هريرة وقال له: أتريد أن تعمل عملا تنال عليه أجر وثواب؟ فقال: نعم فقال الرجل: كان قد قيل لي أن البصل في مكة نادر الوجود. فإشريت بكل ما أملك بصلا وأتيت به هنا إلا أن أحد لا يشتريه والبصل يكاد يتلف فلو فعلت ما يحمل الناس على شراء هذا البصل لآنقذت مؤمنا من الافلاس ولآحييت نفسا. فوافق ابو هريرة وطلب منه أن يحضر البصل في مكان معين يوم الجمعة ليرى ما يمكن عمله وكان الاجر قد استورد ذلك البصل من (عكا)
فلما كان يوم الجمعة قال أبو هريرة في مجموع المصلين : (( أيها الناس سمعت من حبيبي رسول الله : من أكل بصل عكا في مكة وجبت له الجنة))ولم تمضي ساعة حتى كان الناس قد إشتروا كل البصل وكان ابو هريرة يشعر بالرضى في قرارة نفسه لكونه قد أنقذ مؤمنا من الافلاس
أيجوز التقول عل رسول الله للتوصل الى مثل هذا الهدف؟؟

“When Abu Huraira was Muawiyah’s governor of Madina, a person came from Akka for selling onions in Makkah. No one bought it from him. He could not take the onions elsewhere and was ruining in the summer season. He went to Abu Huraira and said, “O Abu Huraira, can you do a good deed?” He said, “What kind of good deed?”. He said, “I am a Muslim. I had been told that there are no onions in Makkah, and the people of Makkah need it. I bought onions from all the money I had and brought the onions here. Now no one is buying it, and it is damaging. Can you help a believer? Abu Huraira said, “Alright, on the day of Friday, at the Jumma prayer, you bring the onions to a particular place, I will see what I can do. When all the people gathered, Abu Huraira said, “O people, I have heard from my beloved, the Holy Prophet (sallallaho alaihi wasallam) that he said, “Whoever ate the onion of Akka in Makkah, he will go to heaven.” Soon afterwards, the whole onion of that person was sold out. Abu Huraira was also satisfied that he had helped a believer and saved him from bankruptcy. Should the Prophetic traditions be used for such works? “

Murtadha al-Mutahhari, al-Seeratu al-Nabawiyyah, p. 122

Where is this tradition found in the Sunni books? There is no evidence of it in the Sunni sources. But just to prove that Abu Huraira was a liar, the Shias lied upon him.

This reminds me of an authentic Shia narration, which shows that the Shia Imams permit their followers to lie upon those who they consider their enemies in order to promote their religion, and make the common people hate their enemies:

2. مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَبِي نَصْرٍ عَنْ دَاوُدَ بْنِ سِرْحَانَ عَنْ أَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ص إِذَا رَأَيْتُمْ أَهْلَ الرَّيْبِ وَ الْبِدَعِ مِنْ بَعْدِي فَأَظْهِرُوا الْبَرَاءَةَ مِنْهُمْ وَ أَكْثِرُوا مِنْ سَبِّهِمْ وَ الْقَوْلَ فِيهِمْ وَ الْوَقِيعَةَ وَ بَاهِتُوهُمْ كَيْلَا يَطْمَعُوا فِي الْفَسَادِ فِي الْإِسْلَامِ وَ يَحْذَرَهُمُ النَّاسُ وَ لَا يَتَعَلَّمُوا مِنْ بِدَعِهِمْ يَكْتُبِ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ بِذَلِكَ الْحَسَنَاتِ وَ يَرْفَعْ لَكُمْ بِهِ الدَّرَجَاتِ فِي الْآخِرَةِ

Imam Jaafar says that the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) said, ‘When you after me find people of bid’ah and doubt/suspicion, do disassociation from them and increase your insults to them and accuse them of false things, and oppose them so they may not become greedy in bringing corruption in Islam. You must warn people against them and against learning their bid’ah (innovations). Allah will reward you for this and will raise you darajaat (positions) in the next life.’”

    Salam thanks for this post. I attended a shia college in london and at the time the usul al fiqh teacher was a certain Ayatullah syed Fazal Hussain Milani from Iraq who claimed to be a contemporary of sistani etc, a man supposedly capable of ijtehad. I heard him with my own ears infront of me in class narrate this incident. Now having read your post I am so angry I am in good mood to give him a call!!!!

    al-Seerah al-Nabawiyyah was not written by Murtadha al-Mutahhari. it was written by ibn e hasham.

    • Please don’t comment without knowledge. This is a modern Shia book written by Mutahari which has similar title.

      We are not talking about early Islamic book by Ibn Hisham (rah).

  5. Assalamu alaykum, I am a disciple of school of thought of Hadith scholar Shah Waliullah of Delhi. I am not sure about Alqawli fihim but Alwaqee’ah can mean Ishtibak(fighting) and Ightiyab(backbiting or describing their heresy) according to http://www.almaany.com/ar/dict/ar-en/%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%92%D9%88%D9%8E%D9%82%D9%90%D9%8A%D8%B9%D9%8E%D8%A9%D9%8E/ May be some of their extremists may misinterpret that as a license for lying but we should not be committing the same sin we accuse them of committing.
