Shia using Sunni sources?
...refuted using purely Sunni sources by 'Allamah Sayyid 'Ali Milani ..
Do you know what a contradiction is? It is what takes place every time a
militant Shi`i makes a statement using purely Sunni sources. In other
words - I am sorry to say - makes up falsehoods.
Please see below as narrated by Ibn Majah and Ahmad bin Hanbal how
Ash'ath bin Qays stays one night at 'Umar's house and wakes up in the
middle of the night to witness 'Umar beating his wife until Ash'ath has
to stand between the two to stop him. Then 'Umar fabricates a hadeeth
and claims that Allah will not ask a man about beating his wife on the
Day of Judgement!
Who is the fabricator here? Both Ibn Majah's and Ahmad's chains are through
"Dawud al-Awdi, from `Abd al-Rahman al-Musli." This narration - Allah knows
best - does not come to us through any other path. And Dawud is weak while
`Abd al-Rahman is unknown. `Umar knew more than you that Allah will ask a
man about beating even his beast of burden or his slave on the Day of
Judgment, let alone his wife.
Even Shibi Nu'mani in volume two of his biography of 'Umar states that
'Umar was not very good with women and children and women and children
didn't like 'Umar!
On the contrary, he stated that `Umar did not let one widow or orphan go
hungry or unclothed in the entire Caliphate. Besides, `Umar alighted in his
palaces in Paradise a millenium before Shibli Nu`mani was born so never mind
May Allah have mercy on the Ahl al-Bayt and clear them from any association
with corpse-eaters and other defamators on the Day of Judgment.
