O Allah, curse them for they have discarded the Sunnah out of hatred for ‘Ali

 

كان ابن عباس بعرفة فقال يا سعيد ما لي لا أسمع الناس يلبون فقلت يخافون معاوية فخرج ابن عباس من فسطاطه فقال لبيك اللهم لبيك و إن رغم أنف معاوية اللهم العنهم فقد تركوا السنة من بغض علي

Ibn ‘Abbas was at ‘Arafah. He asked in surprise, “O Sa’id, why do I not hear the people reciting the talbiyah?”

I replied, “They fear Muawiyah.”

So Ibn ‘Abbas left his tent and shouted: “Labbayk Allahumma labbayk (we are present, O Allah, we are present at Your service); in defiance of Muawiyah. O Allah, curse them for they have discarded the Sunnah out of hatred for ‘Ali.[1]

 

‘Abdullah ibn Muhammad ibn al Sharqi is present in the isnad. He is accused and mutakallam fih (reproached) due to his addiction to liquor.[2]
