This narration is against Qur'an:

And do not insult those they invoke other than Allah , lest they insult Allah in enmity without knowledge...6/108

 

The above narration also is not mutawatir and besides, it is mistranslated. Here, باهتوهم means "astounding them by presenting strong arguments":

الوقيعة في الناس: الغيبة. والظاهر أن المراد بالمباهتة الزامهم بالحجج القاطعة .... From al-Kafi (footnotes)

 

Like I told you, 20+ jurists agree to it being authentic.

مجلسی : و المراد بسبهم الإتيان بكلام يوجب الاستخفاف بهم، قال الشهيد الثاني رفع الله درجته: يصح مواجهتهم بما يكون نسبته إليهم حقا لا بالكذب

حائری : و لا تصحّ مواجهته بما يكون نسبته إليه كذباً؛ لحرمته، و إمكان الوقيعة فيه من دونه.

This is what some scholars say about that narration.

مکارم : هذا و لكن ذلك لا يخلو عن إشكال.

أمّا أوّلا لحرمة الكذب ذاتا، و لا يجوز التوصّل بالباطل إلى الحقّ،

و أمّا الاولى فالبهت و البهتان- كما يظهر من متون اللغة- في الأصل بمعنى الحيرة و التحيّر، و لذا يقال بالأخذ بغتة بالعذاب البهت، قال اللّه تعالى بَلْ تَأْتِيهِمْ بَغْتَةً فَتَبْهَتُهُمْ و إطلاقه على نسبة ما ليس في إنسان إليه من هذا الباب لأنّه يحيّره كما صرّح به أهل اللغة، فكأنّ المراد: احملوا على أهل البدع من كلّ جانب و اجعلوهم متحيّرين حتّى لا يطمعوا في الفساد في الإسلام، فتأمّل.

This is in relation to "bahituhum" not in relation to insults. Some believed bahituhum means "bring evidences" others believed it meant basically waqee'a. But no one even had an issue with "sabihim".

Here is a thread discussing the hadith, dear sister. I recommend you read it before you make your opinion:

Cursing the enemies of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَىٰ) and the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) is a part of our religion. Nowadays (historically it wasn’t an issue), the scholars (not concerned about politics) disagree only one aspect; if the cursing should be allowed publicly or only privately. In al-Kafi there is endless list of ahadith that state, for example, that people who reject wilayah of Imamah have doors to paradise closed, and all go to hell. All of them. Therefore anyone saying that we can’t curse those that insulted, tormented and killed those blessed by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَىٰ), tries to change our religion.

For example, the day of Umar's assassination (9 Rabi' al-awwal), is still celebrated in Iranian villages and was previously celebrated in major Iranian cities until the protests of Sunni countries resulted in its banning there by the post-1979 authorities... The celebration is known as jashn-e Omar koshi (the celebration of the killing of Umar).

By the “Caliph’s” degree, Sunnis previously cursed Ahlul Bayt in mosques all over the Umayyad state for almost 100 years. Since the time of the Umayyads,  and the label they acquired as the “Ahlul Bayt haters”, they realised that one can’t be a Muslim by openly hating the Prophet’s family, so they started making up tons of ahadith, whilst pretending to love them but they still insult closer Ahlul Bayt by saying they “made mistakes”, “weren’t infallible”, or downgrading their status to the mere people around the last Prophet, while they openly curse and insult further Ahlul Bayt. Wahhabis are front runners in this behaviour. So in conclusion, while we curse the enemies of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَىٰ), they curse Prophet’s closer and further family. In the instance, the cursing isn’t only by mouth but also writings and their theology, after all it was perfectly fine for the second Sunni Umayyad caliph to ambush and slaughter Prophet’s own grandson.

@Sumerian could you please elaborate on what sabb/insulting refers to? Because most of us I think perceive it as using those usual vulgar words, which I would find extremely hard to believe is permissible. 

Calling people pimp, najis, or bas**** child, etc. if that's what they are we wouldn't really think of it as an insult (if it's true). But if this is what is meant by sabb/insulting it would make more sense.

Sure brother. I would recommend you read the following thread first, as all the questions are basically answered;

Including the one you just asked right here:

it's abandoned in villages too but sometimes a few radical groups may do it ,if it was celebrating at least we had a video on social media

Mods would like to remind everyone that it is allowed to discuss cursing, but cursing is against the rules. Please remain polite in your discussions.

Quote

Cursing of the 3 "Caliphs" (Abu Bakr, Umar and Uthman by name or number) and of any of the Holy Prophet's ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) wives, as well as Sunni scholars is strictly prohibited. This involves cursing by name, swear words and defamatory language. The Moderator/Admin team also reserves the right to edit/delete or not approve posts or profile comments or ban members in accordance with the application of these rules. Respect is the only way to keep peace between the 2 parties and allow constructive discussions.

So in summary

-Sayed Sistani & Sayed Khamenei prohibit cursing in public

-Saying “la’na on enemies of Ahlul Bayt” should suffice

Wsalam

There is no summary on this subject. Just refer to your marja’ on that.. and as for Ayatollah Sayyid Ali as-Sistani (may Allah prolong his life), his position in fact is not clear. He issued a fatwa prohibiting cursing in public based upon a particular and specific situation, where a group of brothers in Iraq at the height of sectarian conflict (more like our genocide as always...) just “lost it” publicly when the People of Ignorance bombed al Askari’s (peace be upon them and their descendants) mosque second time. If you read it in Arabic, the fatwa didn’t prohibit cursing of the enemies of Islam in public or private, it forbid the practice in that particular moment.

In addition to this, Imam Khamenei may have meant cursing or may have meant insulting, depending on the original Farsi fatwa, and didn't mention about public and private.

- Sayyed Khamenei never distinguished between public and private, he simply prohibited offending the figures of our opponents

- most jurists throughout history have declared cursing and insulting as mustahab deeds against those who deserve it, such as the people who propogate bid'ah, deviance and kufr

- to each to their own marja. They have different views on bara'ah and taqiyya, and whether jahr bil bara'ah (publicising bara'ah) is acceptable is dependant on context and circumstances. Most ulama seem to believe it is not in the interest to publicise it, although a handful do.

Complete summary.
