Dear Alamdar Sahab,
The “Jewish Encyclopedia” says:
ABDALLAH IBN SABA By : Hartwig Hirschfeld
Jew of Yemen, Arabia, of the seventh century, who settled in Medina and embraced Islam. Having adversely criticized Calif Othman's [May Allah be pleased with him] administration, he was banished from the town. Thence he went to Egypt, where he founded an antiothmanian sect, to promote the interests of Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] . On account of his learning he obtained great influence there, and formulated the doctrine that, just as every prophet had an assistant who afterward succeeded him, Mohammed's [PBUH] vizier was Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] , who had therefore been kept out of the califate by deceit. Othman [May Allah be pleased with him] had no legal claim whatever to the califate; and the general dissatisfaction with his government greatly contributed to the spread of Abdallah's teachings. Tradition relates that when Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] had assumed power, Abdallah ascribed divine honors to him by addressing him with the words, "Thou art Thou!" Thereupon Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] banished him to Madain. After Ali's [May Allah be pleased with him] assassination Abdallah is said to have taught that Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] was not dead but alive, and had never been killed; that a part of the Deity was hidden in him; and that after a certain time he would return to fill the earth with justice. Till then the divine character of Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] was to remain hidden in the imams, who temporarily filled his place. It is easy to see that the whole idea rests on that of the Messiah in combination with the legend of Elijah the prophet. The attribution of divine honors to Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] was probably but a later development, and was fostered by the circumstance that in the Koran Allah is often styled "Al-Ali" [The Most High].

Historian Professor Nicholson writes:
"Now the Shi'ite theory of Divine Right certainly harmonised with Persian ideas, ...Abdullah ibn Saba...went from place to place, seeking to lead Moslems into error..." [The History of the Arabs, page 215]
Dr. J. N. Hollister writes:
"[Abdullah ibn Saba] He was the native of San's in Yemen...He opened a campaign of behalf of Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] suggesting that Abu Bakar[May Allah be pleased with him], Umer [May Allah be pleased with him], and Usman [May Allah be pleased with him] were usurpers..." [Shias of Hind page 15]
Dweight M. Donaldon writes:
"Abdullah ibn Saba had travelled widely throughout the Empire, as Tabari says, "seeking to lead the Moslems into error...Another of his teachings that was more immediately, influential was that every Prophet has a wasi and that Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] was the wasi of Muhammed [PBUH]
[The Sheit Religion of Islam, part 6 page 41]
Professor P.K Hitti writes:
"The enigmatic Abdullah ibn Saba who was convertered into Islam...embarrased Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] with his excessive venertion..."
[History of the Arabs, page 248. London]
As per Shia Scholars:
1- Allamah Majlisi said: "Some scholars have asserted that ibn Saba was a Jew who accepted Islam and started voicing his opinion of the `wilayat' (divine appointment) of `Ali. [May Allah be pleased with him] While a Jew, he propounded the exaggerative notion that Yusha ibn Nun was divinely appointed to succeed Prophet Musa, he thus adopted a similar stance with regard to `Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] in relation to the Holy Prophet. He was the first to subscribe to the belief of Imamate, and he openly vitriolated his enemies (i.e. the first three Caliphs) and branded them as infidels. The origin of Shi'ism is thus based on Judaism."
Reference: Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 25, p. 287. Other Shi`ah scholars who have affirmed this was `Allamah Kashi in his Rijal al-Kashi and `Allamah Mamaqani in his Tanqih al-Maqal.
2- "we resemble and are just like the fellow followers of moses"
References: Kulainis Kafi Al Hujjat/52 without a doubt this is doing of Jew Abdullah Ibn Sabah aka Ibn-e-Sauda.
3- "at the reappearance of the 12 th imam he will rule the world by the wisdom of the descendants of Prophet David [PBUH]"
Reference: Al Hujjat/98 Kabbalah myths that now form the basis of zionism were introduced by Jew Abdullah Ibn Sabah aka Ibn-e-Sauda.
4- "Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] said to his 12 sons allah wants me to revive the traditions of the Prophet Israel [PBUH]"
Reference: Al hujjat/63 "12" of the twelvers - Ithna Asharia.
A Jew named Abdullah Ibn Sabah aka Ibn-e-Sauda [Tareekh-e-Tabari]:
5- He later called for the divinity of `Ali [May Allah be pleased with him]. Having said so, he proclaimed himself as `Ali [May Allah be pleased with him]'s Prophet. Even Shi`ah scholars have gawked at his audacity. He initially did not openly preach these beliefs, but he later abandoned his secret and started a vigorous campaign.
Shia Reference: Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 25, p. 286.
6- Shia scholar Nau Bakhti writes:
"It is known as the Sabai sect because Abdullah bin Saba was its ring leader. "
Reference: Khandaan-e-Nau-Bakhti, page 275.
7- Abdullah Ibn-e-Saba was the first who declared the faith in Imamat and that Hazrat Ali [r.a] is the true God.
Reference: Anwaar-ul-Na'umania, Vol 2, Pg 234 - Published in Iran
Shia scholars have given an account of Ibn Saba, his views and beliefs and his party ; Syed Qummi [who died in 301 A.H.], Sheikh Taifah Tusi, Tastri in Qamus-ur-Rijal, Abbas Qummi in Tohfat-ul-Ahbab, Khu Ansari in Raudhat-ul-Jannat, Sabhani in Nasikh-ut-Tawarikh and the author of Raudhat-us-Safa, have all mentioned him and his party". Shia biographer Istra-badi says:
"Abdullah bin Saba claimed that Hadhrat Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] is Allah and he is his Prophet. When the news reached the Amir-ul-Momineen, he sent for him and asked him about it. He owned it and insisted that he is really the one [who is the referee of his claim]. The Amir-ul-Momineen [May Allah be pleased with him] said : The devil has seduced you. Therefore you should repent at once. But he refused to repent and he put him behind the bars for three days. When he did not repent even after three days, he burned him alive". Abu Muhammad Hassan bin Musa has unraveled these secrets. He is the earliest Shia historian who has given an account of the Shia sects. He is one of the most famous Shia of the third century A.H. He writes:
"Sabais are the companions of Abdullah bin Saba. Abdullah bin Saba made faces at Hadhrat Abu Bakr [May Allah be pleased with him] , Umar [May Allah be pleased with him] , Uthman [May Allah be pleased with him] and other Companions [May Allah be pleased with everone of them] the Prophet Mohammad [PBUH] and disaffiliated himself from them and he imputed his acts to the command of Hadhrat Ali [May Allah be pleased with him]. When Hadhrat Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] caught hold of him and asked him about it, he confessed to it. After his confession, he ordered him to be executed. On hearing the order, [quite a few people] made a humble submission to Hadhrat Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] : O Amir-ul-Momineen ! You have ordered the execution of a person who professes your friendship and the love of your Ahl-i-Bait. Hadhrat Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] complied with the submission and exiled him to Madain."
Abdullah bin Saba figures in the most reliable book of Shias on Asma-ur-Rijal, entitled Rijal-e-Kashshi and it is related in it from Imam Jafar Sadiq [May Allah have mercy on his soul] that Ibne Saba believed in the divinity of Hazrat Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] and , ultimately, he was burnt alive at his command.
About Abdullah bin Saba, Rijal-e-Kashshi says:-
"Many knowledgeable people have stated that Abdullah bin Saba was a Jew who had accepted Islam and showed great devotion for Hazrat Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] as a Jew, he used to exaggerated the personality of Joshua, the son of Nun [PBUH], and the Wasi of Moses [PBUH]. After becoming a Muslim he began to exalt the personality of Hazrat Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] much beyond the due limit, and he was the first person to declare that it was obligatory to believe in the Imamate of Hazrat Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] , and completely dissociated himself form his enemies and he openly opposed them and denounced them as infidels". [Rijal-e-Kashshi, page 71].
1- Allamah Shahristani has confirmed this too, saying that when `Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] heard the claim of his divinity directly from the mouth of ibn Saba, he exiled him to Mada'in (Al-Milal wa al-Nihal, vol. 2, p. 11).
2- Hafiz ibn Hajar threw more light on the dialogue between `Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] and ibn Saba on this occasion: "Abul Ijlas says that I heard `Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] telling `Abdullah ibn Saba: "By Allah, I have not hidden any secret from anyone which the Holy Prophet told me. I heard the Holy Prophet saying that there would appear thirty liars before the last day, and you are one of them." Once Suwaid ibn Ghafalah visited `Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] during his reign and told him that he had passed a few people amongst whom was ibn Saba speaking ill of Abu Bakr [May Allah be pleased with him] . They claimed that you also held the same opinion." `Ali retorted: "I have nothing to do with this black filthy creature. I seek refuge from Allah that I hold any opinion other than the best for Abu Bakr [May Allah be pleased with him] and `Umar [May Allah be pleased with him] ." He then exiled ibn Saba saying that he could not tolerate to live with him in one city. `Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] then ascended the pulpit, and after relating the story said: "I will lash anyone who prefers me over Abu Bakr [May Allah be pleased with him] and `Umar [May Allah be pleased with him] , the lashing of a slanderer."
Reference: Lisan al-Mizan, vol. 3, p. 290.
3- Ibn Asakar has cited a tradition of Hadhrat Jabir in his history:
"When the oath of allegiance was taken at the hand of Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] and he delivered his address, Abdullah bin Saba stood up and said: you are "Dabat-ul-Ardh"
Reference: Tareekh Dimishq
4- Hafiz ibn Hajr has related on the authority of Tarikh Abi Asakar:
"He belonged to Yemen. He was a Jew, but he had donned the guise of Islam and roamed through the Muslim cities to lead the Muslims astray and dissuade them from the obedience of their Imams and to sow dissension among them. He also visited Damascus with this end in view".
Reference: Tarekkh Dimishq,vol 7 page 430
Abdullah bin Saba, who was popularly known as Ibn Sauda, was a Jew. He had left his country during the tenure of Hadhrat Uthman [May Allah be pleased with him] but he had not embraced Islam from the core of his heart. When he was honked out of Basra, he left for Kufa from where he made a bee - line for Syria. The Syrians also whipped him out of their country and he left for Egypt. He made Hadhrat Uthman [May Allah be pleased with him] the special butt of his critical remarks and secretly invited people to institute the Khilafat of the Ahl-i-Bait. He pressed upon people to launch the campaign and he spared no opportunity to criticize the rulers. Some of the people openly sided with him. They had come from different cities and therefore they kept up their links through correspondence. Khalid bin Maljim, Saudan bin Hamran and Kinana bin Basher supported the campaign launched by Abdullah bin Saba.
