history book Attabari

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

the book of history written by imam Muhammad Ibnu Jarir Attabari was famous and consists of many volumes. however, a shia named Ali Shimshati abridged the books adding and inserting many stories in it. besides, another shia name Ali Tabari wrote a book with the same name. the recent version of Attabari history book all derived from these Non Sunni sources.

thus, stories quite counter to the honour of Sahabah kiram inserted in it such as the accusation of hadrat Aisha calling hadrat Uthman with unbecoming terms. do not use these books against the Sunni because there are interpolation in it.

No offense to you Akhi, but this is a ridiculous claim. I have the History of Tabari in Arabic, English aswell as Urdu, i have not seen any sort of "Abridged Shia versions" or "Insertions."

Regardless to say, what many people dont get, and what i have stressed repeatedly on this board, is that Imam Tabaris history is an Annal which basically means he gathers many sources and many different narrations for certain events, some which are contradictory. He further provides the Sanad so these sources can be authenticated by the reader.

Wallahu A'lam

salam to all. this abridged version was done long time ago not recently bro. besides, there are many other history books that you can read such as by Ibnu Khaldun, Ibnu Ishak, Ibnu Ishak. etc.

one more thing, historian can be right and wrong. the trend during the Abbasids period was that the Ummayyads get censured and the historians followed this trend and conceal truth to ingratiate themselves with their government.
