I do not see why you are quoting all these details in reply to my brief message. Yes, those things are known in history and I am not denying any of that. Imam Jafar as-Sadiq is a great-grandson HAzrat Abu BAkr from teh mother's side.

Thank you.


Syed-Mohsin Naquvi

Dear and Respected Naquvi Sahab,

As per Shia Theology Imams are infallible and specifically Hazrat Jaffer Sadiq [May Allah have mercy on his soul and bless him in heavens eternally] then why there is much insult in Shia Lietrature/Religion for Hazrat Jaffer Sadiq's Maternal Grand Father:


Mullah Muhammed bin Yaqoob Kulaini, the most prominent Shi'ite scholar of Hadith, quotes Imam Baqir as saying:

'People became apostates after the death of the Prophet (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam), except for three people: Miqdad ibn Aswad, Abu Dharr Ghifari and Salmaan Farsi.' He continues:

'Abu Bakr and Omar did not repent before they parted the world. In fact, they did not even mention what they had done to Ali. So may Allah, His angels and all of mankind curse them. (Furu'ul Kafi: Kitabul Rauda: 115)

Mullah Baqir writes:

'Regarding the doctrine of' 'Tabarri' we believe that we should seek disassociation from four idols namely, Abu Bakr, Omar, Uthman and Mu'awiyah; from four women namely, Ayesha, Hafsa, Hind and Ummul Hakam, along with all their associates and followers. 'These are the worst creation of Allah. It is not possible to believe in Allah, His Messenger and the Imams without disassociating oneself from their enemies. (Haqqul Yaqeen: 2:519)

[The doctrine of 'Tabarri' means to have no association with the enemies of Allah.]

Mullah Baqir writes:

'One should say after each prayer: O Allah! Curse Abu Bakr, Omar, Uthman, Mu'awiyah, Ayesha, Hafsa, Hind and Ummul Hakam. (Aynul Hayat: 599)

The Prophet (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam), came to a person from the Ansaar and asked him if he had any food. The Ansaari said he had and slaughtered a goat. The man then grilled some meat and presented it to the Prophet (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) who wished that Ali, Fathima, Hasan and Hussain were present with him. Then Abu Bakr and Omar arrived. Ali also arrived shortly after. Allah then revealed the verse:

'We have never sent any messenger prophet or Muhaddath before except that when ever they desired something, the devil interfered in their desire.' (The Prophet then said) This is just as the devil has sent his two agents here right now (Abu Bakr and Omar). (The footnotes of Maqbool's translation: Surah Hajj: 674)

[Muhaddath is a non-prophet but he is inspired by Allah]

Mullah Baqir Majlisi writes:

'Pharaoh and Hamaan refer here to Abu Bakr and Omar. (Haqqul Yaqeen: 342)

The same author also says:

'The references in big books about the illegitimate birth of Omar cannot be discussed in this book. (Ibid: 259)

Allah says in Surah Nahl (90):

"And He prevents you from immorality, unlawfulness and rebellion.'

Ali ibn Ibrahim AI-Qummi comments on this verse:

'These three vices refer to so and so, so and so and so and so.' (Al Qummi's commentary: 218)

Any ambiguity is cleared by the following comment: 'Immorality refers to the first person (Abu Bakr); unlawfulness refers to the second (Omar) and rebellion refers to the third (Uthman). (Footnotes to Maqbool's translation: 522)

Mullah Baqir narrates a story from Imam Zainul Abideen that a man came to the Imam and asked him to inform him about Abu Bakr and Omar. The Imam informed him that they were both non-believers. (Haqqul Yaqeen: 551)

All The Sahaba Kiraam Radiyallahu Anhum Are Kaafirs and Apostates (Na'udhu billah).

The shi'ite scholor of Hadith, Ni' matullah Jazaa-i-rii writes in the 'Anwaare nomaaniyyah' page 245, vol.2.: "The shia Imaamiyyah are of the opinion that the khilafah of Hazrat Ali (Radiyallahhu Anhu) is by nassi jalli (clear text) and all the sahabah (Radiyallahu Anhum), are kafirs, and continue to slander them. They (shias) believe in the imaamah of Jafar Sadiq, (Rehmatullah Alayhi), and his sinless offspring. The author of this book belongs to this group and only this sect is successful and saved (from jahannum). Abii Jafar (Imaam Baqir) says that after Rasulullah, (Sallalahu Alayhi Wasallam), all the sahaba became murtid (turn apostate) apart from these: Miqdad Bin Aswad, abu Zar Ghafari and Salaman Farsi (Radiyallahu Anhum). They refused to make Bayah (pay allegiance) to (Sayyidinaa) Abu Bakr, (Radiyallahu Anhu), until they called Amirul Momineen. He made Bayah. Then the three of them also made bayah. Hence all agreed upon the khilaafah of (Sayyidina) Abu Bakr. [Usol-e-kafi, vol.2.; Raudah kaafi, page246; Rijal Kashi, page 504.]

The most authentic book of theology of Shi'ism is Al-Jamiul Kafi. In this book in the section, Kitabur Raudha', the following narration is attributed to the fifth Shi', Imam:

"After Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) all people became murtads (reneged from Islam) except three persons - Miqdad Bin Aswad, Abu Tharr Ghifari and Salman Farsi Radiallahu Anhum wabarakatuhum). "

In the Shi'i book, Kitabur Raudhah, the following narration is attributed to Imam Baqir who allegedly made the statement in reply to his disciple who had sought the Imam's opinion regarding Hadhrat Abu Bakr and Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhuma)

"What are you asking me about them (Abu Bakr and Umar)? Whoever among us (i.e. the Ahle Bait or the progeny of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) departed from this world, departed in a state of extreme displeasure with them. The elders among us admonished the younger ones to perpetuate it (i.e. this displeasure with Abu Bakr and Umar), Verily, the two of them have unjustly usurped our right. By Allah! These two were the first to settle on our necks (i.e. the necks of the Ahle Bait). Therefore, may the la'nat (curse) of Allah, the Malaikah and of mankind be on the two of them.

(Kitabur Raudhah, Page 115)

In the same book, on the same page appears the following:

"Verily. these two elders (Abu Bakr and Umar) departed from this world without having made taubah for what they had perpetrated against Ameerul Mumineen Alayhis Salaam. In fact, they did not even think of us (of their wrongs against Hadhrat Ali). Therefore, the la'nat of Allah, the Malaikah and of mankind be on them."

In the Shiah book, Rijal Kashi, Hadhrat Abu Bakr and Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhuma) are denigrated in the following narration attributed to Imam Baqir:

"Whatever murder is committed in Islam, whatever unlawful wealth is earned and whatever adultery is committed until the appearance of our Imam Mahdi - the sin of all this is on the necks of the two (i.e. Abu Bakr and Umar). (Rijal Kashi, page 135)

In Kitabur Raudhah on pages 159/160, the Shiahs attribute a narration to Hadhrat Salman Farsi (Radiallahu Anhu) in which it is claimed that on the occasion when the oath of allegiance was given to Hadhrat Abu Bakr (Radiallahu Anhu), the first person to swear allegiance to him was an old man who stepped forward crying:

"All praise to Allah who has not caused me to die yet, enabling me to see you on this pedestal. Stretch your hand. " Thus he (Abu Bakr) stretched his hand and the old man took the oath of allegiance (at his hand)."

According to the narration, when Hadhrat Ali (Radiallahu Anhu) heard this from Hadhrat Salman (Radiallahu Anhu), he asked:

"Do you know who he (the old man who took the oath of allegiance) is?"

When Salman (Radiallahu Anhu) replied in the negative, Hadhrat Ali (Radiallahu Anhu) allegedly said:

"That was Iblees, Allah has cursed him."

Thus, according to Shi'ism, the first being who accepted the Khilafat of Hadhrat Abu Bakr (Radiallahu Anhu) was Iblees who placed his hand in the hand of Hadhrat Abu Bakr (Radiallahu Anhu).

At the end of this narration in Kitabur Raudhah, the following words are attributed by the Shi'i priests to Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

"Then, they (a group of the Saqeefah Bani Saidah) will come to the Musjid (i.e. Musjid-e-Nabawi) and the first to swear allegiance to him (i.e. Abu Bakr) on my Mimbar will be Iblees, the La'nat of Allah on him. Iblees will appear (on that occasion) in the form of an old man and say so (i.e. what Salman Faarsi has allegedly said)."

Mullah Baqir Majlisi is a renowned personality in Shiah circles. He is regarded as a top-ranking Muhaddith. He flourished in the 10th century of the Hijri era. The Shi'i clergy has accorded him the title, Khatamul Muhadditheen (the seal of the Muhadditheen). His works are regarded as highly authoritative by the Shiah priests. Khomeini has praised and recommended his writings. This Shi'i priest, in his books, writes the following statements whenever he mentions the name of Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhu)

"Umar Bin Khattab - on him be la'nat (curse) and athab (punishment).

This, then is the Shi'i attitude towards the beloved Sahabah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

This Mullah Baqir Majlisi has mentioned in his book, Zadul Ma'ad, numerous virtues and excellencies of the 9th of Rabiul Awwal. According to Baqir Majlisi, the significance and excellence of 9th Rabiul Awwal are because "Umar, the enemy of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the enemy of the Ahle Bait" will be killed on the 9th Rabiul Awwal. It is for this reason that the 9th of Rabiul Awwal should be observed as a great occasion of happiness and festivity according to Shi'ism. The relevant part of this fabricated narration attributed by the Shiah to the famous Sahaabi, Hadhrat Huzaifah (Radiallahu Anhu) is as follows:

"Huziifah Bin Yaman narrates: Once on the 9th of Rabiul Awwal I went to Rasulullah. I saw Ameerul Mu'mineen Ali Murtaza, Imam Hasan and Imam Husain also there. All were busy eating. Rasulullah smiling in great happiness said to Hasan and Husain: 'Sons, today is the day on which Allah will destroy your enemy and the enemy of your grandfather, and Allah will accept the curse of your mother (Fatimah). Eat sons, eat I Today is the day that Allah accepts the deeds of your Shiah (partisans), and beloved. Eat sons, eat! Today is the day when the power of your enemy and the enemy of your grandfather will be broken and annihilated in the dust. Eat sons, eat! Today is the day when Fir'on to my Ahle Bait, the one who will oppress and persecute them and who will usurp their rights, will be destroyed."

Huzaifah said: I exclaimed: 'O Rasulullah! Will there be such an evil person in your Ummah, who will perpetrate such villainy?'

Rasulullah replied: 'O Huzaifah!

Among the munafiqs (hypocrites) there will be one idol who will be the leader of the group of munafiqeen. He will carry in his hand the whip of cruelty and injustice; he will prevent people from the Path of truth; he will alter the Qur'an; he will change my Sunnah and my ways; he will oppress my Wasi (Appointee), Ali Bin Abi Talib and he will deprive my daughter, Fatimah of her rights. My daughter will then curse him. Allah Ta'ala will accept her la'nat (curse) and prayers.' Huzaifah then said: 'O Rasulullah! Why do you not supplicate to Allah to destroy this Fir'on and oppressor in your very lifetime?'

Rasulullah replied: 'O Huzaifah! I do not regard it proper to interfere in the decisions of Allah Ta'ala... But, I have requested Allah Ta'ala to grant excellence and superiority to that day when that oppressor and Fir'on is dispatched to Jahannum (e.i. when he is destroyed). That day should be decreed superior to all other days so that honoring of that day becomes a Sunnah for my Shiane Ahle Bait (i.e. partisans of my family). Allah Ta'ala then sent this Wahi (revelation):

'It has already been decreed in My Eternal Knowledge that the usurping Munafiqs will persecute you and your family. They will inflict many hardships on you and your family. O Muhammad! Ali has been awarded your rank because of these (impending) hardships which will be perpetrated on him by the usurper of his rights and the Fir'on of this Ummah. I have commanded the angels of the seven heavens to rejoice and celebrate Eid on the day he (i.e. Hadhrat Umar) is killed - this is for the sake of the partisans and lovers of the Ahle Bait. I have commanded the recording Angels to cease recording the sins of My servants for three days from that day. This is in honor of that day (on which Hadhrat Umar will be murdered). O Muhammad! Three days grace and permission in general to commit sins have been given in your honor and in honor of your appointee (Ali) ... Every year on this day, will I free from Jahannam thousands of your Shiahs.' Huzaifah says: 'After Rasulullah said this, he arose and left the room and went to the house of Umme Salmah. After having heard this talk of Rasulullah I was convinced of Umar's kufr. There remained no doubt in this. Finally, after the demise of Rasulullah, I witnessed the fitnah which he (Umar) created. He exhibited the kufr which was concealed in him. He reneged from Islam and usurped the Imamate and Khilafate. To achieve this end he adopted the most shameless methods. He altered the Qur'an and burnt the holy house of Rasulullah. He pleased the Jews, Christians and the Magians and displeased Fatimah and the entire Ahle Bait, and he conspired to have Ameerul Mu'meen (i.e. Hadhrat Ali) murdered. He made haram what Allah had made halal and legalized what Allah had made unlawful. He slammed the door against the face and stomach of Fatimah Alayhis Salaam. Huzaifah then said:

'Finally Allah Ta'ala accepted the curses of His Holy Nabi and his daughter in regard to this Munafiq (i.e. Hadhrat Umar) and had him killed at the hands, of his killer (Abu Lu'lu' Irani). May there be the Rahmat (Mercy) of Allah on his (Umar's) killer."(Zadul Ma'ad - Pages 433-436)

Needless to say, this whole narration, from beginning to end, is a colossal fabrication of the Shiah enemies of the Sahabah in general, and of the first three Khulafa (Abu Bakr, Umar and Uthmaan) in particular. Shi'i priests are notorious for the fabrication of narration's which they impute to such great men of Islam, whom they describe as their "Imaams", when in actual fact, they (the so-called Imaams of the Shiahs) were august personalities of the Ahl-e- Sunnah wal Jam'at.

The salient features of batil stated in the aforementioned fabrication are:

1. Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhu), the second Khalifah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) was a kafir.

2. Not only was Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhu) a kafir, but a munafiq.

3. Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhu) was the leader of the Munafiqeen (hypocrites).

4. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the Ahle Bait had cursed Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhu).

5. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had prayed for the murder of Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhu).

6. Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhu) had altered and interpolated the Qur'an Shareef.

7. Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhu) was a cruel oppressor, unjust and a usurper.

8. Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhu) prevented others from Imaan and Islam.

9. Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhu) conspired to murder Hadhrat Ali (Radiallahu Anhu).

10. The day on which Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhu), was murdered by the Persian kafir, Lu'lu', is the most auspicious day of the year.

11. The Rahmat of Allah is on the Kafir murderer of Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhu).

12. The day when Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhu) was killed is such an occasion of rejoicing that Allah Ta'ala declared the permissibility of sinning for three consecutive days. That is, each year for three days from the date of Umar's murder, Shiahs are permitted to fornicate, consume alcohol, steal and commit all sins and crimes with complete equanimity since sins are not recorded in these three days.

These are the abominable teachings of Shi'ism regarding the illustrious Ameerul Mu'mineen. Hadhrat Umar Ibn Khattab (Radiallahu Anhu) about whom Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:

"If there had to be a Nabi after me, it would have been Umar.

"The sternest in the Law of Allah is Umar. "

Nahjul Balaaghah, the highest theological book of the Shiahs have this to say about Hadhrat Abu Bakr and Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhuma).

"Boldly and unscrupulously he (i.e. Hadhrat Abu Bakr) and his successor (i.e. Hadhrat Umar), each in turn, pillaged and plundered the wealth of the community leaving the state in such sadly injured condition that the passage of time was increasing the intensity of the injury,.. But, it was carried on under the guise of law and order and many unacceptable excuses were offered to justify these irreligious and ungodly arrogation's and many more will be repeated in the future. "

The Shi'i priest Muhammad Baqir Sadr writes about the Sahabah in general and Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhu) in particular:

"... we find that it is necessary to accept the existence of a large trend, from the very lifetime of the Prophet, who inclined towards proposing the use of Ijtihad and circumstantial considerations in determining their interests, above strict adherence to the religious texts. "

"This trend was represented by a daring group of important Companions like, Umar bin-al-Khattab, who disputed with the Messenger and made judgements contradicting the text in many subjects, believing that he had the right to do so."

The type of 'Ijtihad' which the Shiahs attribute to Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhu), in particular, and to other Sahaabah, in general, is described in the following statement of Baqir Sadr:

"...we mean by 'ijtihad' the making of judgements in contradiction to the text or acceptance of such a judgement."

A king who pillages and plunders the wealth of a nation is supposed to lead a life of luxury-living in palatial mansions and palaces; relaxing in gardens and orchards; adorning himself in garments of silk, velvet and brocade; indulging in sumptuous feasts and extravagance. But history bears loud testimony to the austere, simple, in fact, life of extreme poverty led by our Ameerul Mu'mineen, Sayyidina Umar Farooq (Radiallahu Anhu). A dozen patches adorned his kurtah of coarse cloth. The frugality and austerity of Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhu) have already attained proverbial significance. The most ardent Sunni sympathizer of Khomeini will not fail in acknowledging this glaring historical fact. Yet the Shi'i priests accuse a Saint of such high, faultless and sterling attributes of having pillaged and plundered the wealth of the Ummah!

HaqquI Yaqeen is another very highly placed book of Shi'i theology. The author of Haqqul Yaqeen is the same Mullah Baqir Majlisi, author of Zadul Ma'ad from which the lengthy fabricated narration (mentioned earlier) has been cited. In his book HaqquI Yaqeen, Baqi Majlisi cites a very lengthy narration in which Hadhrat Abu Bakr and Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhuma) are subjected to extreme vilification. Some excerpts from this fabricated narration of vilification are reproduced here.

"After Makkah Muazzamah, Imam Mehdi will proceed to Madinah, the city of our grandfather, Rasulullah. At Madinah, he (Imam Mehdi) will demonstrate an astonishing act which will be a cause of great happiness for the Mu'mineen and a cause of disgrace for the kuffar and munafiqeen ... When Imam Mehdi will reach the grave of Rasulullah, he will ask the people: "0 people! Is this the grave of our grandfather, Rasulullah?" The people will say - "Yes, this is his grave." Imam Mehdi will then ask:"

"Who are these persons who have been buried alongside our grandfather!"

The people will say: "They are Abu Bakr and Umar, the closest companions of Rasulullah I" Imam Mehdi (inspite of knowing everything) will say:

"Who was Abu Bakr? And, who was Umar? What was their excellence which necessitated their burial alongside our grandfather?"...

"After three days, Sahibul Amr (the Shi'i title for Imam Mehdi) will order the walls to be broken and their bodies exhumed .. After the exhumation of their bodies, he will order their kafan to be removed and their bodies will be hung up on a dried out tree... "

Imam Mehdi will command a dark storm to destroy those who loved them (i.e. Abu Bakr and Umar). Imam Mehdi will then order that the bodies be taken down from the tree. With the power of Allah, Imam Mehdi will restore them to life. He will order all mankind to gather. Then these two will be held liable for the sin of all oppression and kufr which occurred from the beginning of the world. They will be held responsible for all such sin .....

The sin of every murder committed, of every act of adultery committed, of every act of riba, of every act of haram wealth and injustice perpetrated until the advent of Imam Mehdi's appearance, will be charged against them (Abu Bakr and, Umar). Both of them will plead guilty to all these crimes ... Sahibul Amr will then command that they be hanged on a tree. He will command a fire to rise from the earth and devour them. A fire will (miraculously) rise and reduce them (Abu Bakr and Umar) and the tree to ashes.. "

"Muhammad Rasulullah, Ameerul Mumineen (i.e. Hadhrat Ali), Fatimah Zahra, Hasan Mujtaba, Husain Shaheed, and all the sinless Imaams will come to life. All Mumins and all kafirs will also come to life. "

"... The two (Abu Bakr and Umar) will then be punished so much, that daily, in one day and one night, they will be killed and restored to life a thousand times. After this, Allah will take them away to wherever He desires and continue punishing them as long as He desires. "

This, then are Khomeini's beliefs and attitude in regard to the two highest Companions of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). This is the official teaching of the Shiah religion. In his book Kashful Asrar on page 121, Khomeini advises his Shiah brethren to study the books of Mullah Baqir Majlisi who has presented these repugnant fabrications regarding the Sahaabah-e-Kiram (Radiallahu Anhum).


The Shiahs in the introduction of Nahjul Balaaghah revile the eminent Sahaabi, Hadhrat Abu Musaa Ash'ari (Radiallahu Anhu) in the following way:

"A week and old man, named Abu Moosa Ashari, who was also secretly hostile to Hadhrat Ali be nominated as the arbitrator from this side (i.e. the side of Hadhrat Ali)."

"...these arbitrators (i.e. Abu Musaa Ashari and Amr Ibn Aas) sold the cause of Islam along with their souls to the Devil.

"Abu Moosa-e-Asharee, was a man with weak faith more inclined to look after his worldly interest than the cause Of religion."

But, Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam spoke in glowing terms of even the members of Abu Musaa Asha'ari's tribe, leave alone the great Sahaabi known as Abu Musaa Ash'ari. Said Nabi-e-Kareern (sallallahu alayhi wasallam):

"They (i.e. the tribe members of Abu Musaa Asha'ari) are of me and I am of them."
