interestingly, nasibis charge us that it was shia who martyred holy imam;
but when we actually analyze,
we see that it is these nasibis who speak high of those who martyred the holy imam. and not just this, they even take ahadeeth from them

one of the persons who martyred ahlubait asws, martyred two little children of hazrat ubaidullah bin abbas,

by the name of

بسر بن أرطاة

we find that regarding him, ibn hajar says in his book
الإصابة‏ في تمييز الصحابة

he wrote

فقال أهل الشام سمع من النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم وهو صغير وفي سنن أبي داود بإسناد مصري قوي عن جنادة بن أبي أمية قال كنا مع بسر بن أبي أرطاة في البحر فأتى بسارق فقال سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم

people of syria aid that he heard holy prophet when he was a child, and in sunnan abi daood with isnad of misri from junada bin abi umayya, he said i was basr and he said i heard holy prophet……………

in the same way, we find

وروى بن حبان في صحيحه من طريق أيوب بن ميسرة بن حليس سمعت بسر بن أبي أرطاة يقول سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم

so we see that abi daood, and even ibn haban quoted ahadeeth from him.

and that is not all, who was he, we further find

كان من شيعة معاوية

so in deed, he was from mauwia party,

and still, sunnis charge shias of the heinous crime which their
رضي الله تعالى عنه

yes, when i say their رضي الله تعالى عنه did, we do find in masnad imam ahmad bin hanbal that he wrote

this is the online link to masnad imam hanbal, and his wordings for the cursed basr are
حديث بسر بن أرطأة رضي الله تعالى عنه

now, is this not hypocricy that sunnis call the murderers of holy imam as radiullah, yet they charge us of doing so?
is this not hypocricy that they take ahadeeth from him, yet charge us of being a party of them?
is this not hypocricy that they accept that he was in mawia’s party, yet they charge us of doing so?

may the eternal curse of allah be on zalimeen. amin


we find in holy quran, this prophecy regarding the future.
surat is aal-e-imran, verse is 144

وَمَا مُحَمَّدٌ إِلَّا رَسُولٌ قَدْ خَلَتْ مِنْ قَبْلِهِ الرُّسُلُ ۚ أَفَإِنْ مَاتَ أَوْ قُتِلَ انْقَلَبْتُمْ عَلَىٰ أَعْقَابِكُمْ ۚ وَمَنْ يَنْقَلِبْ عَلَىٰ عَقِبَيْهِ فَلَنْ يَضُرَّ اللَّهَ شَيْئًا ۗ وَسَيَجْزِي اللَّهُ الشَّاكِرِينَ

[Shakir] And Muhammad is no more than a messenger; the messengers have already passed away before him; if then he dies or is killed will you turn back upon your heels? And whoever turns back upon his heels, he will by no means do harm to Allah in the least and Allah will reward the grateful.

now, let us analyze the verse of surat aal e imran
the verse 144 says

أَفَإِنْ مَاتَ أَوْ قُتِلَ انْقَلَبْتُمْ عَلَىٰ أَعْقَابِكُمْ

please pay attention to the word أَوْ

In Arabic, it either stands for  uncertainty or probability; and in other context it imparts correction.

so it is either translated as OR or EITHER

Since it is not possible that allah will be talking in uncertainty or probability

So in this verse, it is in sense of RATHER.

we find an example of this sort in quran.We find in surat saafat, verse 147 that allah said

147.   وَأَرْسَلْنَاهُ إِلَىٰ مِائَةِ أَلْفٍ أَوْ يَزِيدُونَ

[Shakir] And We sent him to a hundred thousand, rather they exceeded.
so the correct translation is

And Muhammad is no more than a messenger; the messengers have already passed away before him; if then he dies rather is killed you will turn back upon your heels. And whoever turns back upon his heels, he will by no means do harm to Allah in the least and Allah will reward the grateful.

let us see this thing in shia sources, and find out if this prophecy stood true.
we find in shia tafaseer that most of the companions turned back on the heels. and it was just three men who stood by mola ali asws. they were
abu zar

there are numerous traditions like

we find in tafsir ayashi, vol 1, page 199

148 ـ عن حنان بن سدير عن أبيه عن أبى جعفر (عليه السلام) قال كان الناس أهل ردة بعد النبى (صلى الله عليه وآله) وسلم الا ثلثة، فقلت: ومن الثلثة؟ قال: المقداد وأبوذر وسلمان الفارسى

imam abu jafar asws said “people turned back after the death of holy prophet asws, except for three”
i asked
“who were the three?”
he said
“miqdaad, abu zar, salman”

this hadeeth is also quoted by mohsin faid kashani in his tafsir, and here is the link

so, we come to know about one fact so far, and that is, people turned away from the true path.

but what about the other prophecy

let us see this in shia books.

we  find in al-kafi, vol 1, chapter (ما جاء في الاثنى عشر والنص عليهم، (عليهم السلام))
hadeeth 13

13 – وبهذا الاسناد أن أمير المؤمنين (عليه السلام) قال لابي بكر يوما: ” لا تحسبن الذين قتلوا في سبيل الله أمواتا بل أحياء عند ربهم يرزقون ” وأشهد [أن] محمدا (صلى الله عليه وآله) رسول الله مات شهيدا والله ليأتينك، فأيقن إذا جاءك فان الشيطان غير متخيل به فأخذ علي بيد أبي بكر فأراه النبي (صلى الله عليه وآله)
فقال له: يا أبا بكر آمن بعلي وبأحد عشر من ولده، إنهم مثلي إلا النبوة وتب إلى الله مما في يدك، فإنه لا حق لك فيه، قال ثم ذهب فلم ير

amir ul momineen told abu bakar the verse that “those who die in path of allah are not dead, rather they are alive and are getting rizq”
mola said “i testify that he died as a martyr, and by god, if he comes to you, it cannot be satan [as he cannot take his form]; when ali left, abu bakar saw prophet saying
“o abu bakar! bring eman on him and 11 from his progeny. the are like me except in nabuwat; and do toubah for what u have taken in your hands; no doubt it is not your right. then prophet went away, and was not seen again

so this proves that he died as martyr,

but was it the jewish lady who had poisoned him?

we again find

we find in al-kafi, vol 2, chapter

(باب العفو), hadeeth 9

9 محمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن أبن فضال، عن ابن بكير عن زرارة، عن أبي جعفر (عليه السلام) قال: إن رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) أتي باليهود ية التي سمت الشاة للنبي (صلى الله عليه وآله) فقال لها: ما حملك على ما صنعت؟ فقالت: قلت: إن كان نبيا لم يضره وإن كان مللكا أرحت الناس منه، قال: فعفا رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) عنها.

imam jafar said that when jew lady tried to poison holy prophet, he asked her, what made you do this?
she said “it is because, if you are prophet, it would not harm you; and if you are king, people would get free from you”
holy prophet forgave her.

this hadeeth does prove that holy prophet was not poisoned by jew lady. reason is simple, she put up a condition that if he was a prophet, the poison will not harm him. so if it is that he asws was actually hurt by the poison, that would in essence mean that he was not a prophet.
and that is not possible.

secondly, even scientifically it is not possible
the incidence of khayber was much much earlier than his death
and he even fought wars, how is that possible that at the time of his death, all of a sudden he starts feeling the pain.

so let us see as to who were the ones who martyred him.

first, what made them make the plan.

we find

in tafsir qummi, vol 2, page 376

فقال كفى فقد حرمت مارية على نفسي ولا أطأها بعد هذا ابدا وأنا افضي اليك سرا فان انت اخبرت به فعليك لعنة الله والملائكة والناس اجمعين فقالت نعم ما هو؟ فقال إن ابا بكر يلى الخلافة بعدي ثم من بعده ابوك فقالت من اخبرك بهذا قال الله اخبرني فاخبرت حفصة عائشة من يومها ذلك واخبرت عائشة ابا بكر، فجاء ابوبكر إلى عمر فقال له ان عائشة اخبرتني عن حفصة بشئ ولا أثق بقولها فاسأل انت حفصة، فجاء عمر إلى حفصة، فقال لها ما هذا الذي اخبرت عنك عائشة، فانكرت ذلك قالت ما قلت لها من ذلك شيئا، فقال لها عمر ان كان هذا حقا فاخبرينا حتى نتقدم فيه، فقالت نعم قد قال رسول الله ذلك فاجتمع…..

holy prophet told hafsa that i would tell you a secret. and if you tell that secret to anyone, you would be cursed by allah, his angels, and all people.
she said “ok, what is that?”
holy prophet asws said “abu bakar would take caliphate after me, and after that your father”
she said “who told you this?”
he said “allah told me”

hafsa told this to ayesha, and she told this to abu bakar,
and abu bakar came to umar and said that
“ayesha told me this, but i do not trust her. so ask hafsa about that”

so umar came to hafsa and asked her
“what did u tell ayesha?”
she rejected and said
“i did not tell her anything”

umar said “if there is something true, tell me so that we can act”

she said “yes, holy prophet met me and said……….”

apart from tafsir qummi, the link of which i have already given, this narration is also present in bihar ul anwar, vol 22, page 239
and here is the link for that

now, let us come to the poisoning part

we find in tafsir saafi, in explanation of the verse 144 of surat aal e imran

وعن الصادق عليه السلام أتدرون مات النبي أو قتل ان الله يقول أفإن مات أو قتل انقلبتم على أعقابكم ثم قال انهما سقتاه قبل الموت يعني الامرأتين.

imam sadiq asws said that do u know that prophet asws died or was killed. because allah says that if he dies rather is killed, you would turn back on your heels
then he said “those two poisoned him before death, that is, the two ladies.

and we find in tafsir ayashi, vol 1, page 200

152 ـ عن عبدالصمد بن بشير عن أبى عبدالله (عليه السلام) قال: تدرون مات النبى (صلى الله عليه وآله) او قتل ان الله يقول: ” أفان مات أو قتل انقلبتم على أعقابكمفسم قبل الموت انهما سقتاه ـ قبل الموت ـ فقلنا انهما وأبوهما شر من خلق الله

abdus samad narrated from imam abu abdullah that he said
“do u know that prophet died or was killed because allah says if he dies rather is killed, you would turn back on your heels. so he was poisoned before death by the two ladies.”
so we said
“those two and their fathers are the worst in creation of allah”

this narration is also present in bihar ul anwar, vol 22, page 516; and here  is the link

so this was how holy prophet asws was martyred.

may the eternal curse of allah be on the enemies of ahlubait.

والحمد لله رب العالمين وصلى الله على محمد واله الطاهرين
