ok... I went a bit overboard on the tags :hahaha:

Makes me think of that song... How does it go?

"I'm going to pop some tags, got 20 gigs mobile data..."

Moving on...

I'll name one- Imam Ali ibn Hussain. Most people who adhere to Sunni thought will never have heard of Al-Sahifa Al-Sajjaddiya, despite it being a profoundly deep book of supplications which can be applied to our lives. Even if we didn't recite them word for word, reading these supplications inspires us to seek Allah in similar ways. It shouldn't be that a Sunni only hears about Imam Ali ibn Hussain if they get curious and flick through Ahlul Bayt TV, as was the case with me. If people know about Al-Ghazali, someone who people of Sunni ideology often see as a great thinker and writer, then they must know Imam Ali ibn Hussain.

What bothers me is that in the ilm rijal of Sunni hadith literature the testimonies of those considered shi'I are rejected.

While shi'I was a very broad term. It could be a rafidi but also one who rejected the usurpation of the caliphate by Yazid, agreed with Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) but still considered the Rashidun caliphs as legitimate. The uprisings consisted of a coalition of diffirent sects like mutazilites, ahnaf, khawarij abbasids and extinct Shi'I sub-sects, pre-Twelver sects and ghulat sects, all if not the majority of them considered to be shi'is.

In case of serious research this should be raken into considersation as an important fact.

Point is that Sunni ahaadith literarure is in favour of the Umayyad usurpation at the cost of those who supported Imam Hussain (عليه السلام).

They talk about Abu Huraira, Khalid bin waleed, Talha, zubair. Why do they never mention Salman Farsi and Bilal(رضي الله عنه)? Are they not Sahabas?

What about Abu Dharr Ghaffari(رضي الله عنه)one of the earliest people to convert to Islam, why is he never mentioned ?? Because Abu Dharr Ghaffari opposed Muawiyah.

Miqdad bin Awsad (رضي الله عنه) another companion. I can bet most Sunnis have never even heard of him.

Because the Umayyads hid behind the Rashidun caliphs and their claimed legitimacy that a caliph should be only from Quraish (and not only Bani Hashim). The hadith of the ten promised Paradise is one of their tools too cement it further.

The most revered Shi'is were non-Arabs, non-Quraishi's or insignificant Quraishi's.

To venerate those was of no benefit to their (Umayyad) claims.

The order in itself is laughable to begin with. It starts with the exact order of the Rashidun Caliphs. How obvious.

There are numbers of naieve people who consider this to be a sign.

I am immune for such lists as I can immediately smell the political motives of it.

The sad truth is that most of the Ahlul Bayt that went to Karbala are not given the respect or attention by other schools of thought. Ask them who Zainab was and what she did, she would be considered up there with Maryam, Fatima and Asiya if only they bothered to find out. I am yet to find anyone in my community who knows of Zainab bint Ali.

Let's compile a list of revered Shia figures that are not given their proper status by Sunnis, according to Shia Islam... with an explanation given.

  • First one that comes to mind is Imam Hasan (عليه السلام) and how they degrade him by saying he had countless divorces. If that isn't an insult to a member of the Ahle Bayt (عليه السلام) then I don't what is.
  • Next one, that I used to hear a lot was when a select amount of Sunni use the term Abu Turab for Imam Ali (عليه السلام). They have a different reason for using that title for him.
    • When a Shi'a uses Abu Turab (Father of the Soil), its meant as a compliment towards Imam Ali (عليه السلام) for his vast knowledge of agriculture. However, when Sunni use that its actually a back handed insult to him because they connect it to the story of Imam Ali (عليه السلام) and Hz. Fatima (عليه السلام) having an argument when the Imam (عليه السلام) supposedly approched her to let her know that he wanted to marry a second wife to which Hz. Fatima (عليه السلام) proceeded to kick him out of the house apparently. The only place he could find to sleep that night was the open air masjid in Medina. At Fajr time supposedly the Holy Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) found him sleeping in the dust and then called him Abu Turab sarcastically because he was sleeping in the dust. 
  • Thirdly, how they belittle Imam Jafar e Sadiq (عليه السلام) by saying he was just one of the many teachers that Abu Hanifa learned from. They do this to dilute his status as a high level scholar by turning him into just another jurist amongst several others, some of whom are of a higher knowledgable status than Imam Jafer e Sadiq (عليه السلام) (as if that were even possible for the era of his Imamat...:dry:).

I'm sure we can all come up with a greater list as time goes on. Just the Ahle Bayt (عليه السلام) alone should be quite lengthy. Leave alone Shi'a sahabi.  Of course, you'll hear the standard Sunni response of that they don't place the Ahle Bayt (عليه السلام) on the higher pedestal that we do and that due to that its not an insult from their perspective. However, while there are many Sunni that approach it from that perspective (which in my opinion is a somewhat valid point), we can not use that same excuse for Sunni that do indeed harbor malice towards the Ahle Bayt (عليه السلام), specifically Imam Ali (عليه السلام) & Imam Hasan (عليه السلام) due to the fact that held the position of Caliph.

What about Zayd ibn Ali (عليه السلام) who was loved and respected by both Sunni (Abu Hanifa (رضي الله عنه)) and Shia (Jafar as-Sadiq (عليه السلام)) but hardly mentioned by any of them.

As I said before and still say. The Muslims (the anti-Umayyad opposition) back then hadn't this narrowed sectarian mindset as we have nowadays. 

They co-operated, studied and corresponded with eachother.

Totally agree. I didn't know Zayd wasn't really spoken about, from a Sunni aspect I knew but not a Shi'a aspect.

Zayd ibn Ali placed in contemporary society would be respected by people all around the world as a hero, wouldn't he? However has history caked something around his legacy that led us to be how we are with him?

This is Anti Shia reactions when anything below happens 

 

When Anti Muslim insults Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) and/or the holy Prophet Muhammad ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)): Smile to them, treat them kindly, share love, after all the Prophet tought us to love and respect *wink*

 

When a Shia man type A’isha without saying ((رضي الله عنه).): HOW DARE YOU? MAY Allah CURSE YOU, MAY Allah PUNISH YOU THE HARDEST PUNISHMENT, INSHALLAH THE LAST MEAL YOU HADE TODAY WILL BE YOUR LAST. 

 

Anyway let’s get back to the topic

I absolutely cannot believe Sunnis.

Why are you getting this worked up? They been opposed to Shias since Saqifah and Fadak.  

هَلْ يَنظُرُونَ إِلَّا أَن يَأْتِيَهُمُ اللَّهُ فِي ظُلَلٍ مِّنَ الْغَمَامِ وَالْمَلَائِكَةُ وَقُضِيَ الْأَمْرُ ۚ وَإِلَى اللَّهِ تُرْجَعُ الْأُمُورُ - 2:210

Do they await but that Allah should come to them in covers of clouds and the angels [as well] and the matter is [then] decided? And to Allah [all] matters are returned.

^Do they expect Him (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to send a message that Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) chose Abu Bakr, Umar and Uthman, the Salafis in particular have forgotten and/or are being willfully ignorant about history.

On behalf of them I can only apologise and pray for them to be forgiven. They are ignorant and clearly haven't got the capacity to make their own conclusions. It seems a lot have a very sheltered mentality and they cannot even comprehend what they are saying or the graveness of it.

They give Muslims a bad name, I have never heard any group of people call each other dogs and want them to burn in hell or be destroyed as much as I have heard "Sunni" Muslims say to others.
