Position of Abdullah Ibn Abbas

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

He did take money from basra treasury but he was upset at Ali over issues of governance.This was a dispute of 2 cousins who otherwise deeply loved each other 

But if he really was disloyal to Ali he would  have  joined muawiyah (like his brother ubaidullah later did) but he didn't.Infact upto the time Abdullah b zubair , ibn abbas was a  patron of shias and defended the house of Ali against the zubayris. 

In caliphate of Ali, ibn abbas played a crucial role in guiding him and commanding his forces.

Some shia sources who condemn anyone who had a difference of opinion with Ali maybe very critical of him
