Answering the Baseless Shi`i Allegations Against Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah

Amongst the many mechanisms deployed by the Shia in trying to sabotage the pure and sound hadith legacy of the Ahlus Sunnah is attacking the great personality of Abu Hurairah radiya Llahu `anhu. In doing so, they have levelled all sorts of ludicrous allegations at his personality and the traditions he reports from Rasul Allah salla Llahu `alayhi wa sallam. The author, `Abdullah ibn `Abd al-`Azīz ibn `Ali al Nasir, has very proficiently replied to all these accusations, proving them to be without any substance whatsoever. In fact, he has proven the very same narrations which the Shia condemn to have been narrated by their illustrious Imams in their canonical works — which they regard as the most authentic, and those from whom it has been narrated to be infallible. This book is an invaluable gift to the seekers of the truth.
