Narrations of Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon him) praising and disparaging the people of Kufa, an analytical study

Keywords: novels, Ahl al-Bayt, praise and disparagement, the people of Kufa


This research is considered one of the analytical studies of narrations issued by infallible imams (peace be upon them) among the Twelver Imami Shiites in praise and disparagement of the people of Kufa.  These two methods of praise and blame are not considered a contradiction in their narrations (peace be upon them) and are not considered an insult to all the people of Kufa. Rather, praise and blame each have their reasons through the view of the People of the House (peace be upon them) in the Qur’an, the basis of which is (questioning their divine and divine leadership) stipulated by law and without it. Questioning it. Whoever doubts them will be proven to be condemned in their narrations, and whoever remains firm on their divine leadership and does not doubt it, his right to praise on their behalf will be proven and God’s covenant with them will be confirmed. God has called them “the thankful” in His Noble Book.This praise of the people of Kufa and their condemnation is completely similar to what was issued in the Mighty Book of God in terms of condemnation and praise for what the Companions of the Messenger of God did in the Battle of Uhud, where they were divided into two parts: one group that did not adhere to the command of the divine leadership of the Messenger and required the revelation of verses from the Holy Qur’an condemning them, and the other group: those who remained steadfast with the Messenger.  (May God’s prayers and peace be upon him and his family) and required the revelation of verses from the Mighty Book praising them in one incident.
