Before I go into this, I would just like to clarify who Ja'far ibn Muhammad al Sadiq (as) is from a non Shia perspective: He was a master of fiqh and the Islamic and non Islamic sciences, and taught Abu Hanifah and Malik ibn Anas, also teaching the great scientist known as Geber (Jabir ibn Hayyan). No doubt then that he was he most knowledgeable man of the time. But because he taught the two greatest scholars of the Ahlul Sunnah, who are Abu Hanifah and Malik ibn Anas, we often get claims that he was a Sunni. Although it is a foolish claim anyway, (considering most of our fiqh comes through Ja'far al Sadiq (as) and therefore we are also known as the Ja'fari school of thought) , here I will make it clear that Bukhari himself didn't think so. I will also make it clear that Bukhari had an animosity towards our Imam (as) . We have collected thousands of ahadīth from him. Let us see why this isn't the same for the books of Ahlul Sunnah. Let us look at what the al Dhahabi, who is generally considered to be of the highest level hadith scholars along with al Albãni and Sho'aib al Arna'ut and others of that status, says about Ja'far ibn Muhammad (as) . In his book, Mīzãn al i'tidãl , he says in volume 1, page 379, "Ja'far ibn Muhammad ibn Alī ibn al Hussain al Hashimī, was one of the great scholars of the time. He was of the of the most trustworthy, truthful, and of a great status, but Bukhari did not narrate from him" Also, in the book, al Thiqãt, by ibn Hibbãn, let us see what is said about Ja'far ibn Muhammad (as), volume 2 page 251, "Ja'far ibn Muhammad ibn Ali ibn al Hussain ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib was of the masters of Ahlul Bayt, in knowledge, in the sciences and had grand merits" Still, Bukhari refused to narrate from him. Interesting, so we have a man that, according to the Ahlul Sunnah, was a great Sunni scholar and teacher but Bukhari refused to narrate from him. I thought he was a great Sunni of high status- he was the teacher of the great Abu Hanifah and Malik ibn Anas- what's the issue? Clearly, Bukhari refused to narrate from this Imam of Ahlul Bayt and no narrations of his are in Sahih al Bukhari. Let us see what Ibn Taymīyyah has to say about this. In Minhaj al Sunnah, volume 4, page 383 "al Bukharī doubted the ahadith of Ja'far ibn Muhammad, deeming them unreliable" I thought Ja'far ibn Muhammad was the great Sunni teacher of Malik and Abu Hanifah, the most knowledgeable of the time? And al Dhahabi said he was of the most truthful, trustworthy, and of a grand status- what is the issue? I thought Bukhari was supposedly fair. Isn't Bukhari someone who loved Ahlul Bayt? No, clearly he is another nasibī in the clockwork. As soon as ahadith supporting the Shia begin to come through from a man of such knowledge, then you completely block the man's narrations from getting into your books. No matter how truthful or knowledgable, if you are the Imam of the Shia, then you are automatically untrustworthy according to al Bukhari. Yet, we get helpless claims telling us that these men had no animosity towards Ahlul Bayt, and even more helpless than that, we get claims that Ja'far ibn Muhammad al Sadiq (as) was from Ahlul sunnah.
