Mu’awiyah’s virtues in the view of Wahabi scholars – الأوسمة التي تعطى لمعاوية

ومن الأوسمة التي أعطيت لمعاوية، ما ورد في (شذرات الذهب، ج1) لابن رجب الحنبلي،  يقول: وهو أحد كتبة الوحي، وهو الميزان في حب الصحابة،  قال: وهو مفتاح الصحابة

إذن ابن رجب الحنبلي يقول أن معاوية هو الميزان في حب الصحابة، انظروا نفس الامور التي ثبتت لعلي بدليل صحيح (لا يحبك إلا مؤمن ولا يبغضك إلا منافق) هذه أخذوها وأعطوها لمعاوية، عندما تصل إلى علي يناقشوها ويقولون أن سندها ضعيف ولا تقبل ولا يمكن أن تكون في الأمور الآخروية وإنما ترتبط بالأمور الدنيوية، ولكن عندما تصل إلى معاوية تجد أنهم يقبلونه بكل رحابة صدر لأنهم أشربوا حب معاوية،

سُئل الإمام أحمد بن حنبل: أيهما أفضل معاوية أو عبد عمر بن عبد العزيز، فقال: غبار لحق بأنف جواد معاوية بين يدي رسول الله،  خير من عمر بن عبد العزيز، ثم يدعو الله  وأماتنا على محبته رضي الله عنه

Some of the virtues that are given to this man, can be found in the book mentioned in the previous post, ‘Golden glimpses..’, by Al Hanbali, in Vol.1, are:’ He is one of the writers of revelations’, which is a blatant lie, ‘he is the measure of the love of the companions’.. so whoever loves Mu’awiyah, loves the companions, and whoever angers Mu’awiyah, angers the companions. And for the readers info, the sunni scholars who oppose Mu’awiyah are: Al Mustadrak (Al Hakim) Al Nisaburi, Al Nisa’i, Abul Faraj Al Isfahani, Al Thahabi..

The writer continues:’He is the key to the companions’, in the sense that if you wanted to enter into the house (of knowledge I presume) of the companions, you should enter through the gate of that house, which is Mu’awiyah. Just as in the famous Prophetic narration when mentioning Imam Ali (‘as) as the gate to the city of knowledge (I.e the Holy Prophet s).

What a tragedy is must be to have the likes of Mu’awiyah as your key to the house of the companions..this man who was a gambler, a seller of alcohol and idols, thief and killer of the elite of the Prophets’ companions, not forgetting the establisher of the custom of cursing Imam Ali (‘as) on the pulpits. This is your Ummayad ideology. If you want to know if a person is a follower of this ideology, ask him on their views on Mu’awiyah. It then should be clear what their inclinations are.

Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal was once asked on who he considered better, Mu’awiyah or Umar ibn Abdul Aziz, and he said:’ The dust that entered his nose while fighting alongside the Holy Prophet, is better than Umar ibn Abdul Aziz; and may we die loving Mu’awiyah, my God be pleased with him…!!!’

Indeed, may you die loving him, his son and whoever follows their ideology, and may you all be gathered in the same place on the day of judgement. Amen.
