Allah did not reveal: O you who believer save that ‘Ali was their amir (leader) and sharif (chief)

Let the sons of Wali’ah stop or I will certainly send to them a man like myself

Allah did not reveal: O you who believer save that ‘Ali was their amir (leader) and sharif (chief)

 

ما أنزل الله يا أيها الذين آمنوا إلا و علي أميرها و شريفها

Allah did not reveal: O you who believer save that ‘Ali was their amir (leader) and sharif (chief)

 

This is an indirect criticism against the Sahabah radiya Llahu ‘anhum to the exclusion of Sayyidina ‘Ali radiya Llahu ‘anhu. The narrator is ‘Ali ibn Budhaymah al Jazari.

 

‘Ali ibn Budhaymah al Jazari

  • Al ‘Uqayli labelled him a leader in Shi’ism. Despite this, he has good hadith.[1]

The masters of al Jarh wa al Ta’dil accept the narrations of such people as long as their narrations do not support their bid’ah.

 

Zakariyya ibn Yahya al Kisa’i

  • Al Nasa’i remarked, “Matruk al hadith, da’if.”[2]
  • Al Daraqutni made similar comments.[3]

Al Tabarani narrated it in al Kabir[4] but ‘Isa ibn Rashid is in the sanad. He is majhul and his narrations are munkar. This was affirmed by al Bukhari and quoted by al Dhahabi.[5]

It is reported from the chain of Musa ibn ‘Uthman al Hadrami.

  • He is shia, extremist, and fanatical in Shi’ism.[6]
  • Abu Hatim labelled him matruk.[7]

They should be asked: Is Sayyidina ‘Ali radiya Llahu ‘anhu the amir of this verse:

 

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِيْنَ آمَنُوْا لِمَ تَقُوْلُوْنَ مَا لَا تَفْعَلُوْنَ

O you who have believed, why do you say what you do not do?[8]

 

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِيْنَ آمَنُوْا لَا تَخُوْنُوا اللَّهَ وَالرَّسُوْلَ وَتَخُوْنُوْا أَمَانَاتِكُمْ وَأَنتُمْ تَعْلَمُوْنَ

O you who have believed, do not betray Allah and the Messenger or betray your trusts while you know [the consequence].[9]

 

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِيْنَ آمَنُوْا لَا يَسْخَرْ قَوْمٌ مِّنْ قَوْمٍ عَسىٰ أَنْ يَكُوْنُوْا خَيْرًا مِّنْهُمْ

O you who have believed, let not a people ridicule [another] people; perhaps they may be better than them;[10]
