Intellectually, some of the posts are simply funny. People assume by attacking sunni beliefs that they're somehow proving the Shia beliefs right. That's not how it works; both views are highly subjective and both can be wrong.
Why is it so hard for you to believe that majority of the companions turned against Imam Ali a.s, when the Quran gives numerous examples how majority of followers went astray in previous narrations. Also we have hadiths how the ummah is going to turn against Imam Ali a.s after the death of the Holy Prophet s.a.w.w with various wordings but the gist of the narrations is majority will go against Imam Ali a.s.
You don't need names of all the companions who wanted a war with Imam Ali a.s anyway, the one's that wanted the war like Mu'awiaya and co and the sahaba who participated in His army were all in the same boat.
Now obviously the history doesn't give the names of all the sahaba who participated in Imam Ali a.s army or Mu'awiaya's, so how do we determine if the majority were against Imam Ali a.s or with? You've have to look at the size of the army of both parties and you will find majority of them were in Ayesha (in Jamal) an Mu'awaiya's side (in siffeen).
. I'm not 100% sure Abu Huraira participated actively in either battle though.
We all know who he supported though don't we bro?
Ibn Abu al-Hadid says: Sufyan al-Thawri reports on the authority of ᶜAbd al-Rahman ibn Qasim, on the authority of ᶜUmar ibn ᶜAbd al-Ghaffar that when Abu Hurayrah came to Kufah with Muᶜawiyya
, he used to sit at the door called Kinda at nightfall and the people would sit with him. A young man of Kufah
came to him and sat with him and said, “O Abu Hurayrah, may Allah adjure you! Did you hear the Messenger of Allah (SA) saying for ᶜAli ibn Abu Talib
: O Allah support the one who supports ᶜAli and oppose the one who opposes ᶜAli.
” Abu Hurayrah replied, “Off course, I did (hear that).” The young man responded, “Then I take Allah as my witness that you have most surely supported the one who opposes ᶜAli’s and opposed Allahs beloved.
” The young man then left Abu Hurayrah
This just sums it all up that a young man from Kufa understood the Holy Prophet s.a.w.w hadith of those that oppose Imam Ali a.s and your telling me that these companions who witnessed ghadir khumm and all the hadith's from the Holy Prophet s.a.w.w mouth didn't know the consequences of opposing Imams of the time.
1. I don't agree with you that both views can be wrong, did the majority of the companions go against Imam Ali a.s
2. Did they support him, if you agree with this, than why did they keep Him a.s away from ruling?
2. If you say that his Imamate wasn't clear than your accusiong the Holy Prophet s.a.w.w of not doing his job properly?
Make your choice, don't be a politician.
