al-Salamu `Aleykum,

This is the long awaited topic, the creators of Tashayyu`, those who came up with the concept, those who shaped it, those who set its laws… an advanced in depth topic that aims to reveal the identities of as many of the forgers and liars and evil-doers who created what we know today as “The Imami Shia”.

This thread will be a rough draft, names and narrations will be mentioned, we will rely on both Sunni and Shia books to uncover as many of these men as we can.

Ibn al-Sawda’ `Abdullah ibn Saba’ is undeniably and un-questionably the godfather of all Imami Shia sects, it is clearer than the sun in the middle of the sky. The brothers may Allah reward them placed the necessary efforts to uncovering his schemes and enough information was collected on this personality from many Islamic sources. This Jewish man spread the belief of `Ali’s (ra) divine Imamah and then he took it to the next level, he spread a belief in the Godliness of `Ali (ra), but he said nothing about the Imamah of eleven  other children from Husayn (ra). In other words, someone continued what he started! He was most active in the Khilafah of `Uthman (ra) and `Ali (ra), until he was exiled or killed as other narrations state.

This means that many people need to be looked into, their narrations studied and checked, such as: al-Mu`alla ibn Khunays, al-Mukhtar al-Kaysani al-Thaqafi, Jabir al-Ju`fi, Ibrahim ibn Hashim al-Qummi, Shaytan al-Taq abu Ja`far al-Ahwal ect…

1. al-Mu`alla ibn Khunays

Fudayl ibn Marzouq said that he asked the sons of `Ali bin al-Husayn (rah) about Imami Tashayyu`, they accused him of being behind the spreading of such evil beliefs:

Top Shia Narrator Abu Basir the liar

علي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه، عن ابن أبي عمير، عن منصور بن يونس، عن أبي بصير قال: سمعت أبا عبدالله (ع) يقول: الكذبة تنقض الوضوء وتفطر الصائم، قال: قلت: هلكنا، قال: ليس حيث تذهب إنما ذلك الكذب على الله عزوجل وعلى رسوله وعلى الائمة عليهم السلام

It is narrated from Abu Basir that he said : I heard Imam Jafar saying : Lying breaks the wudhu and the fast. I said : We are doomed , he said : No, it is when lie is upon Allah and His Messenger and the Imams.

Majlisi grades : Hasan or Muwathaq

Mirat ul Ukul, Vol. 16, p. 250

Just think about how many times he would have lied during wudhu and fast that he considered himself doomed

Shia Narrators either Christian, Liar, Mushrik or cursed by Imams

I hear alot from shias who claim they take their religion from Ahlulbait, and Ahl-e-Sonnat have abandoned the Ahlulbait and deviated.

But lets see their prolific narrators who brought them the teachings of ‘Ahlubait’.

1. Jabir Al-Joufy جابر الجعفی

روى سبعين ألف حديث عن الباقر عليه السلام وروى مائة وأربعين ألف حديث والظاهر أنه ماروى بطريق المشافهة عن الأئمة عليهم السلام. وسائل الشیعة 151.20

Al-Hur Al-Amili in Wasael Al-Shia 20/151 says:

He narrated 70,000 Hadeeths from Al-Baqir (peace be upon him) and 140,000 from other Imams. It appears that he didn’t narrate through dictation from the Imams.

Met Imam Baqir (rah) only once and never met Imam Jafar (rah):

سألت أبا عبد الله عليه السلام عن أحاديث جابر ؟ فقال ما رأيته عند أبي قط إلا مرة واحدة، وما دخل علي قط رجال کشی ص191

Narrated by Zurarah ibn A’yan: I asked Abu Abdullah (as) about the hadiths of Jabir Al-Jafy, he replied: I saw him only once with my father and he never met me.[Rijal Kashi p:191]

Comment: This man after meeting Imam Baqir (rah) only once narrates 40,000 Hadeeths and he never met Imam Jafar Sadiq (rah). This means Imam Jafar Sadiq (rah) does’nt know him.

Jabir Al-Joufy had mental confusion and he was also accused:

جابر الجعفي : (وكان في نفسه مخلطاً ) [رجال النجاشي: ص100] (إن جابر الجعفي من المتهمين عند أكثر المؤلفين في الرجال ) [الموضوعات في الآثار والأخبار: ص 234].

2. Zurarah bin A’yan زرارة بن أعين

He is considered to be one of the greatest companions of Ahlulbait (ra). He narrated thousands of  Ahadith in the shia books.

Lets read more about him.

أن زرارة بن أعين من أسرة نصرانية وجده يدعى (سنسن ) كان راهباً في بلاد الروم، وكان أبوه عبداً رومياً لرجل من بني شيبان. الفهرست للطوسي ص 104

Zurarah bin Aen had a christian family, his grandfather was a monk in the land of Rome and his father was a roman slave. [Fihrist Tusi p:104]

What Imam Jafar Sadiq (rah) said about him:

عن ليث المرادي قال: سمعت ابا عبد الله عليه السلام يقول: لا يموت زرارة الا تائها.

From al-Layth al-Mardi: I heard Abu Abdullah (alaihi salam) said: “Zurarah wouldn’t die except as a lost one”. [Ihtiyar marifatul rijal p.170]

Zurarah is cursed by Imam Jafar Sadiq (rah):

قال أبو عبد الله : (ما أحدث أحد في الإسلام ما أحدث زرارة بن أعين من البدع عليه لعنة الله. رجال الكشي ص 149

No one has brought innovation to Islam like Zurarah did, may Allah curse him. [Rijal Al-Kashi p:149]

Zurarah lied on Imam Jafar Sadiq (rah):

When Imam was informed that Zurarah narrating something from him, he said:

ليس هكذا سألني ولا هكذا قلت: كذب علي والله كذب علي والله لعن الله زرارة لعن الله زرارة، لعن الله زرارة

He didn’t ask me in this way, and I didn’t answer like this, by Allah he lied upon me, by Allah he lied upon me, May Allah curse Zurarah, May Allah curse Zurarah, May Allah curse Zurarah, May Allah curse Zurarah. [Ihtiyar marifatul rijal p.168]

Similar narrations:

كذب علي والله كذب علي والله لعن الله زرارة لعن الله زرارة لعن الله زرارة

He has lied upon us by God, he has lied upon us by God, may Allah curse Zurarah, may Allah curse Zurarah. [Bihar Al-anwar]

وقال أبو عبد الله عن زرارة : كذب علي والله كذب علي والله ، لعن الله زرارة لعن الله زرارة لعن الله زرارة

“By Allah he lied on me! By Allah he lied on me! May Allah Curse Zurarah, O Allah Curse Zurarah, O Allah Curse Zurarah” [Rijal Al Kishi p.133]

Zurarah has nothing to do with Islam:

قال إن ذا من مسائل آل أعين ليس من ديني و لا دين آبائي

This issue (masala) is the work of Aal Ayun (referring to Zurarah ibn Ayun), it has nothing to do with my religion and the religion of my father. [Rijal Kashi, p. 137]

Those who doubted their religion:

حدثني محمد بن مسعود قال حدثني جبريل بن أحمد عن محمد بن عيسى بن عبيد عن يونس عن أبي الصباح قال : سمعت أبا عبد الله (ع) يقول يا أبا الصباح هلك المترئسون في أديانهم منهم زرارة و بريد و محمد بن مسلم و إسماعيل الجعفي

Imam Jafar said: O abu Sabah! those who doubted in their religion are ruined, amongst them are Zurarah and Buraidah and Muhammad bin Muslim and Ismail Jufi.[Tanqih al maqal, Vol. 3 ,p. 186]

Zurarah worse than Jews and Christian:

عن أبي عبد الله ع قال: دخلت عليه فقال: متى عهدك بزرارة؟ قال قلت ما رأيته منذ أيام قال: لا تبال وان مرض فلا تعده وان مات فلا تشهد جنازته قال قلت زرارة؟ متعجبا مما قال قال : نعم زرارة زرارة شر من اليهود والنصارى

Imam Jafar asked the narrator : since how much time have you seen Zurarah? Narrator says : I haven’t seen him from some days, Imam said : Don’t care about him , and if he becomes ill, don’t visit him, and if he dies, don’t join his funeral prayer. The narrator said : You mean Zurarah? He said it while he was surprised. Imam said : Yes, Zurarah, for Zurarah is worse than Jews and Christians.[Rijal Kashi, p. 142]

Similar narration:

زرارة شر من اليهود والنصارى، ومن قال: إن مع الله ثالث ثلاثة ) (رجال الكشي: ص160. رواية رقم 267)

Zurarah is worse than jews and Christians, and those who say: with Allah is 3 from 3. [Rijal Kashi p:160]

Again, he is cursed by Imam Jafar Sadiq (rah):

حدثني حمدوية قال؛ حدثني محمد بن عيسى عن يونس عن مسمع كرد بن ابي سيار قال سمعت ابا عبد الله (ع) يقول: لعن الله بريداً، لعن الله زرارة

Aba Abdullah (as) said: May Allah curse Buraydah!, may Allah curse Zurarah! [Rijal Kashi, p. 148]

Also See Scan images of the book: [Scan 1] [Scan 2]

Note: Buraydah is also cursed by Imam Jafar Sadiq (rah), he is another narrator.

After some conversation between him and Imam Jafar Sadiq (rah), he says:

فلما خرجت ضرطت في لحيته و قلت لا يفلح أبدا [كتاب رجال الكشي (350 هـ) الجزء 2 صفحة من 133 إلى 161]

“I came out (from the place of Jafar Sadiq) and farted on his beard and said, this person can never find prosperity.

What Zurarah said about Imam Jafar Sadiq (rah):

رحم الله أبا جعفر واما جعفر فان في قلبي عليه لعنة

May Allah forgive Abu Jafar, as for the Jafar I have a curse on him in my heart. [Ikhtiyar Ma’arifatur-Rijaal – Shaykh Abu Ja`far at-Tusi]

3. Abu Basirأبو بصير

محمد بن مسعود قال حدثني جبريل بن أحمد قال حدثني محمد بن عيسى عن يونس عن حماد الناب قال : جلس أبو بصير على باب أبي عبد الله (ع) ليطلب الإذن فلم يؤذن له فقال لو كان معنا طبق لأذن قال فجاء كلب فشغر في وجه. رجال الکشی ص:116

[Sanad omitted] Abu Basir was sitting at the door of Abu Abdullah, and was asking for permission to enter, but wasn’t given permission , on this he said, if I had some plate [of dish, money etc] , I would have been given permission, and a dog came and peed on his face.[Rijal Kashi, p. 116]

Abu Basir was disobedient to Imam Jafar Sadiq (rah):

عن الأسدي ، عن النخعي ، عن النوفلي ، عن البطائني ، عن أبي بصير ، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال قلت له: أخبرني عن الله عز وجل هل يراه المؤمنون يوم القيامة .
قال: نعم وقد رأوه قبل يوم القيامة .
فقلت: متى ؟
قال: حين قال لهم: أَلَسْتُ بِرَبِّكُمْ قَالُوا بَلَى . ثم سكت ساعة ثم قال: وإن المؤمنين ليرونه في الدنيا قبل يوم القيامة ، ألست تراه في وقتك هذا ؟ قال أبو بصير فقلت له: جعلت فداك فأحدث بهذا عنك ؟ فقال لا

I asked Abu Abdullah: Will the believers see Allah on the day of judgement? He said: Yes, and they saw God even before that. I said: When? He said : When He [swt] said: أَلَسْتُ بِرَبِّكُمْ . Than after silence of a moment, he said : The believers see everything even before the day of judgement and aren’t you seeing everything now?

Abu Basir said: May I be sacrificed on you, should I narrate this hadith of yours (to others)? He (the infallible imam) said : No.

[Bihar al anwar 4/44]

Comment: But he indeed narrated this hadith to others and the proof is this hadith itself, so Abu Basir was disobedient to the Imam.

4. Muhammad bin Muslim محمد بن مسلم

Muhammad bin Muslim is perhaps one of the most important narrators in the Shia hadith system, he has narrated thousands of hadith but he is also cursed by Imams. He  claims to have heard 30,000 ahadith from Imam Al-Baqir (ra), and 16,000 from Imam Jafar Sadiq (ra). (See Ikhtiyar Ma’rifat ar-Rijal vol. 1 p. 391)

Imam Jafar (rah) cursing Muhammad bin Muslim:

حدثني محمدبن مسعود، قال حدثني جبريل بن أحمد، عن محمد بن عيسيى، عن يونس، عن عيسى بن سليمان وعدة، عن مفضل بن عمر، قال: سمعت ابا عبدالله عليه السلام يقول:«لعن الله محمد بن مسلم كان يقول ان الله لايعلم الشئ حتى يكون

“May the curse of Allah be on Muhammad bin Muslim!, he says that Allah does not know of a thing till it comes into existence” [Ikhtiyar Ma’arifatur-Rijaal – Shaykh Abu Ja`far at-Tusi]

5. Al-Mufaddal ibn Umar

Al-Mufaddal ibn is regarded by eminent Shia hadith scholars as pious and a reliable transmitter of the Imams’ hadith.  (Al-Ardabili Jami’ ar-Ruwat (vol. 2 p. 258)

Lets see what Imam Jafar Sadiq (rah) said about him:

Imam Jafar (ra) addressed Al-Mufaddal ibn Umar:

“You Kafir! You Mushrik!” [Ikhtiyar Ma’rifat ar-Rija vol.2 p.612]

In another lenghty narration, he is cursed by Imam Jafar Sadiq (rah):

Abdullah ibn Miskan says: Hujr Ibn Za’idah and ‘Amir ibn Judha’ah Al-Azdi came to Abu ‘Abdillah [Imam Jafar] and told him: “May we be ransomed for you! Mufaddal says that you [the Imams] determine the sustenance of the people.” He [Imam Jafar] said: ” By Allah no one besides Allah determinse our sustenance. One day I needed food for my family. I was under difficult circumstances and though hard about it, until I mananged to secure food for them. Only then did I feel content. May Allah curse him and disown him.” They asked: “Do you curse and disown him?” He replied: “yes, so you too, curse him and disown him. May Allah and his messenger disown him.” [Ikhtiyar Ma’rifat ar-Rijal vol.2 p.614]

Al-Kashi says, Mufaddal ibn Umar belonged to the extremist Khattabiyyah sect, the followers of Abul Khattab, whose beliefs were derived directly from Ibn Saba.

Comment: These are the people who ‘brought’ the teachings of Ahlulbait (ra) to shia. They lied upon the Imams (rah) and they are cursed.  So how can the shia claim they follow Ahlulbait (ra)?

The Imams (rah) cursed them and called them Mushrik, liar, Christian etc. The shia hate and attack Abu Huraira (ra), who was praised by the messenger of Allah (swt), but they love and accept these narrators who are hated by Imam Jafar (rah) and other Imams (rah).

Hadith narrated by: Abu Huraira(ra) vs Shia narrators

The Shia always make a big deal of the companion Abu Huraira (RA) narrating 1,500 Hadiths [without repetition] {& 5374 with repetition} from the prophet PBUH and they say that this number is very very huge (According to them of course) and thus they must be all lies by Abu Huraira (RA) as a result of this..

But see what is written in this important Shia book written by one of their top Scholars and they are talking about those “trustworthy” companions of their Imams and they mention:

وكان من بين أصحاب ( الامام الصادق ) عليه السلام من فقهاء الكوفة : ( أبان بن تغلب بن رباح الكوفي ) نزيل كندة روى عنه عليه السلام ( 30000 ) حديثا .

And from the companions of Imam al Sadiq PBUH a Man who was a Faqih from the city of Kufah in Iraq, he is Abban bin Taghlub bin Rabah al Kufi and he narrated from al Sadiq 30,000 Hadiths.

ومنهم : ( محمد بن مسلم الكوفي ) روى عن ( الباقرين ) عليهما السلام ( 40000 ) حديثا

and amongst them was Muhammad bin Muslim al kufi who narrated from the two baqirs PBUT 40,000 Hadiths.
