Muawiyah instructed to verbally abuse ‘Ali

 

إن معاوية أمر بسب علي

Muawiyah instructed to verbally abuse ‘Ali.

 

Ibn Majah reported this in his Sunan.

This narration is da’if. ‘Abdul Rahman ibn Sabit narrates with plenty irsal.

The scholars have criticised the narration of Abu Muawiyah from al A’mash.

Abu Muawiyah

  • Ibn ‘Adi comments, “Extremist Shia. He has such narrations which I do not like mentioning.”
  • Ibn Hajar remarks, “A ruined ikhbari. Unreliable.”
  • Abu Hatim al Razi says in al Jarh wa al Tadil, “ Matruk al hadith (suspected of hadith forgery).”[1]
