Except 3, all the other Close Sahabas were hypocrits – Shia say

Posted by answersforshiafriend on October 5, 2011

According to shias only 3 close companions of Prophet Muhammad (s) stayed on the right path and all the others apostated i.e. they were hypocrits.

According to them the rightly guided companions  are those who neither recanted nor retraced their steps after the demise of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him). Those are not less than three and no more than seven, according to the Shiite sources.

Imam Al-Kalbiy narrated in Al-Ka’fiy (one of the reliable and credible Shiite Sources of Hadith) that: It was reported that Hamr’an bin A’yun said: I said to Abu Ja’far (may peace be upon him): “May God make me your ransom, what a small community we are! If we all assemble at a sheep for a meal, we cannot finish it.”

Abu-Ja’far replied: “Should I tell you of a more amazing fact than that? The Muhajirs (those who emigrated from Makkah to Madinah) and the Ans’r (the inhabitants of Al-Madinah who received and helped the Muhajirs), have all renounced their religion except three of them.” (Al-Ka’fi 2/191, section, Rearing of the Believers)

Al-Ka’shiy also narrated in his book about the rightly guided companions as follows: It was reported by Hana’n bin Sadeer from his father that Ja’far (on him be peace) said: “All the people defected from their religion after the death of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) except three.” Who are those three? I interjected. He replied: “Al-Miqda’d bin Al-As-wad, Abu Dharr Al-Ghifa’riy, and Salma’n Al-Fa’risiy.”

It was reported that Al-Ha’rith bin Al-Mugheerah An-Nasiriy said: “I heard Abdul-Ma’lik bin A’yun ask Abu Abdallah [on him be peace] a number of questions until he reached the statement: So did people recant their faith?” To this, Abu Abdullah replied: “Yes, I swear by the name of God, they did defect from their faith except three of the companions of the Prophet (PBUH). Then they were shortly followed by: Al-Hussein bin Al-Mundhir (Abu Sa’sa’n), Amma’r bin Ya’ser, Shateerah and Tha’labah bin Amr (Abu-Shateerah). Thus, the number totaled seven.

All of the Shiite texts regarding this matter are unanimous that the number of the sincere devoted believers among the ranks of the Prophet’s Companions did not exceed seven. Abu-Ja’far said: “Therefore, they were only seven, and no body except those seven knew the rights of the Leader of the Believers viz. Ali bin Abi Ta’lib, save those seven committed sincere companions of the Prophet.” (Rija’l Al-Kishiy, pages 11&12)

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Isn’t it strange that even Isa/Jesus peace be upon him had more true followers! he had twelve deciples where as the last Prophet Muhamamd (s) was left with none but three close companions on the straight path. Wasn’t Prophet Muhammad (s) suppose to have the largest Ummah amongst the Prophets? If Shiasm is it be believed then Prophet Muhammad (s) Ummah would be really really small. How sad…what a shame and what failure of Allah’s plans! (Nauzobillah)

Secondly and most importantly..Allah says about all the early converts to Islam from the  emigrants (Muhajreen) and the helpers (Ansar) in the Quran:

“And the first to embrace Islâm of the Muhâjirûn and the Ansâr  and also those who followed them exactly (in Faith). Allâh is well-pleased with them as they are well-pleased with Him. He has prepared for them Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise), to dwell therein forever. That is the supreme success.” (Tawbah :100)

Do you know who the early converts to Islam were?

Rasool Allah (s) said : “Abu Bakr will be in Paradise, Umar will be in Paradise, Uthman will be in Paradise, Ali will be in Paradise, Talhah will be in Paradise, Al-Zubayr will be in Paradise, Abdul-Rahman ibn Awf will be in Paradise, Sad ibn Abi Waqqas will be in Paradise, Said ibn Zayd will be in Paradise and Abu Ubaydah ibn al-Jarrah will be in Paradise.”  Its isnad is sahih. [Sahih al-Jami` as-Saghir, 1/70, no. 50]

All of these ten Sahaba were the early converts amongst the Muhajireen and sadly none made it to the shia ‘good list’. The question for shia is that whom is Allah talking about in this verse? Rasool Allah told us and hey are called the Ashra e Mubasharah – the ten given glad tidings of Paradise by Rasool Allah, But the shias will say that this is a lie..

So whom will you believe? Will you believe Allah and His Messenger OR will you believe the Shia?
