'Traditional Sunni view'?

Rubbish.

Anyone who criticizes Ameer Mu'awiya () is not a sunni.

The real 'Traditional Sunni view' can be found in Sunni books.

The real sunni view about Muawiya:

The Messenger of Allah said:

"Loving Ali is the sign of belief, and hating Ali is the sign of

hypocrasy."

^^^^^^^^^

Sunni references:

- Sahih Muslim, v1, p48;

- Sahih Tirmidhi, v5, p643;

- Sunan Ibn Majah, v1, p142;

- Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal v1, pp 84,95,128

- Tarikh al-Kabir, by al-Bukhari (the author of Sahih), v1, part 1, p202

- Hilyatul Awliya', by Abu Nu'aym, v4, p185

- Tarikh, by al-Khateeb al-Baghdadi, v14, p462

This tradition of Prophet was popular to the extent that some of the

companions used to say:

"We recognized the hypocrites by their hatred of Ali."

Sunni references:

- Fada'il al-Sahaba, by Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, v2, p639, Tradition #1086

- al-Istiab, by Ibn Abd al-Barr, v3, p47

- al-Riyad al-Nadirah, by al-Muhib al-Tabari, v3, p242

- Dhakha'ir al-Uqba, by al-Muhib al-Tabari, p91

Abu Huraira narrated:

The Prophet (PBUH&HF) looked toward Ali, al-Hasan, al-Husain, and

Fatimah, and said: "I am in the state of war with those who will fight

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

you, and in the state of peace with those who are peaceful to you."

(1) Sahih al-Tirmidhi, v5, p699

(2) Sunan Ibn Majah, v1, p52

(3) Fada'il al-Sahaba, by Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, v2, p767, Tradition #1350

(4) al-Mustadrak, by al-Hakim, v3, p149

(5) Majma' al-Zawa'id, by al-Haythami, v9, p169

(6) al-Kabir, by Tabarani, v3, p30, also in al-Awsat

(7) Jamius Saghir, by al-Ibani, v2, p17

(8) Tarikh, by al-Khateeb al-Baghdadi, v7, p137

(13) Others such as Ibn Habban, etc.

It is the well-known fact in the history that Muawiyah fought Imam Ali

(as). And based on the above tradition of the Prophet(PBUH&HF) the

Prophet has declared war on Muawiyah. How can we still love a person whom

the Prophet has declared war on him?

The Messenger of Allah said:

"Whoever hurts Ali, has hurt me"

Sunni references:

- Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, v3, p483

- Fada'il al-Sahaba, by Ahmad Hanbal, v2, p580, Tradition #981

- Majma' al-Zawa'id, by al-Haythami, v9, p129

- al-Sawa'iq al-Muhriqah, by Ibn Hajar al-Haythami, Ch. 11, section 1, p263

- Ibn Habban, Ibn Abd al-Barr, etc.

The Messenger of Allah said:

"Whoever reviles/curses Ali, has reviled/cursed me"

Sunni reference:

- al-Mustadrak, by al-Hakim, v3, p121, who mentioned this tradition is

Authentic.

- Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, v6, p323

- Fada'il al-Sahaba, by Ahmad Hanbal, v2, p594, Tradition #1011

- Majma' al-Zawa'id, by al-Haythami, v9, p130

- Mishkat al-Masabih, English version, Tradition #6092

- Tarikh al-Khulafa, by Jalaluddin al-Suyuti, p173

- and many others such as Tabarani, Abu Ya'la, etc.

Narrated Sa'd Ibn Abi Waqqas:

Muawiyah, the son of Abu Sufyan, give order to Sa'd, and told him:

"What prevents you that you are refraining from cursing Abu Turab

(nickname of Ali)?" Sa'd replied: "Don't you remember that the Prophet

said three things about (the virtue of) Ali? So I will never curse

Ali."

Sunni reference: Sahih Muslim, Chapter of Virtues of Companions, Section of

Virtues of Ali, Arabic, v4, p1871, Tradition #32.

For the English version of Sahih Muslim, see Chapter CMXCVI, p1284,

Tradition #5916

In her letter, Umm Salama, the wife of the Prophet (PBUH&HF) wrote to

Muawiyah: "...You are cursing Allah and His messenger on your minbar,

and that is because you are cursing Ali Ibn Abi Talib and whomever

loves him, and I am a witness that Allah and His messengerloved him."

But no one paid any attention to what she said.

Sunni reference: al-Aqd al-Fareed, v2, p300

I do not think that those who fought the Ahle Bait of Rasool Allah SAWW, who are the offenders of the Ahle Bait AS and the Sahaba Ikram RA (Muawiya murdered Hazrat Hijir bin Adi RA) should not be criticized.

Muawiya was hungry for power, he attacked Imam Ali AS under the pretext of revenge of the 3rd khalifa just for power, for Sunni references, read Tarikh at Tabari and then he came to fight Hasan ibn Ali AS when he saw that Imam Ali AS has died and he can now get powers.

May Allah guide us all, amin.
