Why Do Sunni Hadith Not Have Many Sayings From Ali ibn Abi Talib?

Well here is a answer subhanAllah!





“Ahmad ibn Hanbal” quotes from “Shu’bah ibn Hajjaj” that I’ve heard narratives from “Abd ar-Rahman ibn abi Layla” that if I say them to you, swear to god all of you will dance and I’ll never quote them for you.

If scholars didn’t betray and quoted all sayings of commander of the faithful Ali [(عليه السلام)], all people would have become Shia!!

Then “Ahmad ibn Hanbal” says that “Mahmoud ibn Ghaylan” has quoted for me that “Shu’bah” has said that if I quote those narratives, all of you will become Shia. “Abu abd ar-Rahman” {Ahmad ibn Hanbal} has said: this phrase is more correct:

حدثني محمد بن عبد الله قال حدثنا أبو داود عن شعبه قال لقد حدثنا الحكم عن عبد الرحمن بن أبي ليلي عن علي بشيء لو حدثتكم لرقصتم والله لا تسمونه مني أبدا

وحدثنا به محمود بن غيلان مثله وقال لترفضتم قال أبو عبد الرحمن وهو أشبه.

“Ahmad ibn Hanbal” – al-ilal wa Ma’rifat al-Rijal – vol. 3, p 354


“Shams al-Din Dhahabi” says about “Shu’bah ibn al-Hajjaj”:

شعبه بن الحجاج بن الورد الحجه الحافظ شيخ الإسلام أبو بسطام الأزدي … بن المديني له نحو ألفي حديث وكان الثوري يقول شعبه أمير المؤمنين في الحديث وقال الشافعي لولا شعبه لما عرف الحديث بالعراق قال أبو بكر البكراوي ما رأيت أحدا أعبد لله من شعبه

“Shu’bah ibn Hajjaj” was proof, hadith retentive {he knew more than thirty thousand narratives by heart} and Sheikh al-Islam.  “Thuri” has said that he was “Commander of the faithful” in hadith science. “Shafi’i” has said: if it weren’t for “Shu’bah”, no one would know hadith in “Iraq”. “Abu-Bakr Bakrawi” has said that he’s not seen someone who worships god as much as “Shu’bah”!!!...
