Abu Afak, Asma Bint Marwan Etc.

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Orientalists and critics of Islam often point to stories of people such as Abu Afak or Asma bint Marwan who were allegedly killed on orders of the Prophet (s) just because they were criticising or mocking him. Such stories were reported only in the works of early Muslim historians such as Ibn Hisham and Tabari, they are not even included in the Sunni hadith collections such as Bukhari.

 

Are such stories present in any authentic Shi'a sources?

are they mentioned anywhere in the early Shi'a literature?

I already told you they aren't, al-Irshad has the only shia biography of the Prophet that I know of (yes there are modern shi'i biographies but they aren't relevant).

surely our hadith collections contain countless stories from the Prophet's (s) life, it doesn't necessarily have to be a "biography" in the sense of full chronological account of his life. I take it you can confirm that these stories are not to be found in our hadith collections either?

 

Also, is Yaqubi not considered an early "Shi'a"(or at least Shi'a-leaning) historian? Surely his Tarikh have to contain at least some partial biography of the Prophet, are these stories there?

 

What about the modern Shi'a biographies of the Prophet, where do they take their primary material from? Did any of the modern biographers include these stories?

 

I'm just trying to establish whether these stories can be found in ANY Shi'a literature.
