إن عمر بن الحمق طعن عثمان بن عفان بست طعنات
‘Amr ibn al Humq stabbed ‘Uthman ibn ‘Affan six times.
This narration has become very famous and the books of history have documented it. Some of the versions of the above narration have isnads while others lack it. Those with isnads come through the chain of Lut ibn Mikhnaf Abu Yahya al Rafidi al Kufi.
Lut ibn Mikhnaf Abu Yahya al Rafidi al Kufi
Al Waqidi reported it with an isnad. However, his narrations are unanimously rejected.
We will not ignore the Qur’an’s praise for the Sahabah radiya Llahu ‘anhum to honour the books of history especially the reports of Rawafid narrators.
If you refuse but to coerce us to consider historical narrations then we will counter you with the personality of ‘Abdullah ibn Saba’―the Jew who features in books of history―the founder of Shi’ism and the irrigator of its seed. So considering books of history is not to your benefit, if only you knew!
