Question

I have a question, I have heard some scholars mention that al-Hakim and author of Tareekh Tabarri were Shias or with Shia tendencies?

 

Answer

Muhtaram / Muhtaramah

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.

 

1. The author of Mustadrak Al Haakim, Muhammed bin Abdullah Al Haakim Al Naisapoori, was not a Shia. He was from the Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jama’ah. Some scholars have falsely attributed Shi’ism towards him, but the academics have rejected this fact and have confirmed that he was not a Shia.

2. Abu Ja’far Muhammed bin Jareer Tabri, the author of Jamiul Bayaan fi Tafseeril Quran and Tareekhul Umam wal Mulook, was not a Shia. He was from the Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jama’ah.

 

There was another author, also named Abu Ja’far Tabri, who was a Shia. He also wrote kithabs on tareekh.

 

Some scholars have regarded both of them as one person, and attributed Shi’ism towards him; but this is a mistake, as the academics have proven that they were two different people, and only the latter person was a Shia.
