Fabricated Hadith of Twelve Imams from Yanabi al-Muwadda and Fara’id al-Simtayn

Original post link

This issue has been brought up quite a few times in the past year, so it deserves a post.

The author of Yanabi’ Al-Mawada is quoting the author of Fara’id Al-Simtain.

Shias always quote this hadith from Fara’id Al-Simtain to prove that Sunnis believe that the Twelve Imams of Ahlulbayt are infallible and are appointed by Allah.

The hadith:

عبد الله بن عباس ، قال : سمعت رسول الله (صلّى الله عليه وسلّم) يقول : أنا وعليّ والحسن والحسين وتسعة من ولد الحسين مطهّرون معصومون

“Abdullah bin Abbas said: I heard the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him say: Me, Ali, Al-Hasan, Al-Hussain, and nine of Al-Hussain’s children are purified infallibles.”

However, upon returning to the chain of the hadith, these are the names we find:

أنبأني الإمام بدر الدين محمد بن أبي الكرم (٢) عبد الرزاق بن أبي بكر بن حيدر ، أخبرني القاضي فخر الدين محمد بن خالد الحنيفي الأبهري كتابة ، قال : أنبأنا السيد الإمام ضياء الدين فضل الله بن عليّ أبو الرضا الراوندي إجازة ، أخبرنا السيد أبو الصمصام ذو الفقار بن محمد بن معد الحسني ، أنبأنا الشيخ أبو جعفر الطوسي ، أنبأنا أبو عبد الله محمد بن محمد بن النعمان ، وأبو عبد الله الحسين بن عبيد الله ، وأبو الحسين جعفر بن الحسين ابن حسكة القمّي ، وأبو زكريا محمد بن سليمان الحرّاني ، قالوا كلّهم : أنبأنا الشيخ أبو جعفر محمد بن عليّ بن بابويه القمّي(٣) قال : أخبرنا علي بن [ محمد بن ] عبد الله الوراق الرازي ، قال : أخبرنا سعد بن  عبد الله ، قال : أنبأنا الهيثم بن أبي مسروق النهدي عن الحسين بن علوان ، عمرو بن خالد ، عن سعد بن طريف ، عن الأصبغ بن نباتة : عن عبد الله بن عباس

As we can see, we have a group of narrators narrating from Abu Ja’afar Muhammad bin Ali ibn Babawayh Qummi aka Al-Saduq, the famous Shia hadith compiler.

The Shia editor, Mohammad Baqir Al-Mahmoodi admits this. He says:

 رواه في أواخر الباب : (٢٤) من كتاب إكمال الدين

“He (Al-Saduq) narrated this in the end of chapter 24 in Ikmal Al-Deen.”

In conclusion, this hadith that Shias have been spreading is from their books, and it is not a Sunni hadith.


Fara’id Al-Simtain can be found on this Shia site:

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, published in 2000 (< Not to be confused with the early classical work Al-Seerat al-Nabawiya by Imam Ibn Hisham)

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.’”

The last day of the Prophet (saw)

The beautiful hadith shows that the Prophet (saw) on his last day was smiling cheerfully after seeing his companions praying in the mosque and Abubakr (ra) leading them. The same day the Prophet (saw) died.

حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو الْيَمَانِ، قَالَ أَخْبَرَنَا شُعَيْبٌ، عَنِ الزُّهْرِيِّ، قَالَ أَخْبَرَنِي أَنَسُ بْنُ مَالِكٍ الأَنْصَارِيُّ ـ وَكَانَ تَبِعَ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم وَخَدَمَهُ وَصَحِبَهُ أَنَّ أَبَا بَكْرٍ كَانَ يُصَلِّي لَهُمْ فِي وَجَعِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم الَّذِي تُوُفِّيَ فِيهِ، حَتَّى إِذَا كَانَ يَوْمُ الاِثْنَيْنِ وَهُمْ صُفُوفٌ فِي الصَّلاَةِ، فَكَشَفَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم سِتْرَ الْحُجْرَةِ يَنْظُرُ إِلَيْنَا، وَهْوَ قَائِمٌ كَأَنَّ وَجْهَهُ وَرَقَةُ مُصْحَفٍ، ثُمَّ تَبَسَّمَ يَضْحَكُ، فَهَمَمْنَا أَنْ نَفْتَتِنَ مِنَ الْفَرَحِ بِرُؤْيَةِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم، فَنَكَصَ أَبُو بَكْرٍ عَلَى عَقِبَيْهِ لِيَصِلَ الصَّفَّ، وَظَنَّ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم خَارِجٌ إِلَى الصَّلاَةِ، فَأَشَارَ إِلَيْنَا النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم أَنْ أَتِمُّوا صَلاَتَكُمْ، وَأَرْخَى السِّتْرَ، فَتُوُفِّيَ مِنْ يَوْمِهِ‏.

Narrated Az-Zuhri:

Anas bin Malik Al-Ansari, told me, “Abu Bakr used to lead the people in prayer during the fatal illness of the Prophet (ﷺ) till it was Monday. When the people aligned (in rows) for the prayer the Prophet (ﷺ) lifted the curtain of his house and started looking at us and was standing at that time. His face was (glittering) like a page of the Qur’an and he smiled cheerfully. We were about to be put to trial for the pleasure of seeing the Prophet, Abu Bakr retreated to join the row as he thought that the Prophet (ﷺ) would lead the prayer. The Prophet (ﷺ) beckoned us to complete the prayer and he let the curtain fall. On the same day he died.”
