A Shia Killed Sayyiduna Hussain

The fact that the Shia of Kufa are the ones who abandoned Sayyiduna Hussain has already been discussed earlier. What the Shia propagandists will reply to this is that “sure, the Shia are the ones who didn’t defend Sayyiduna Hussain but it was the Sunnis who actually killed him!”

However, this is not true at all. The man who killed Sayyiduna Hussain (i.e. gave the death-blow) was a man by the name of Shimr bin Thil-Jawshan and he was a Shia, as recorded in both Sunni and Shia books. Shimr was part of the Shia, and then he betrayed Sayyiduna Hussain and joined Yazid’s men, giving Sayyiduna Hussain the death-blow.

To provide a solid proof of this fact (i.e. that Shimr was a Shia), we refer to the esteemed and classical Shia scholar, Al-Qummi. Al-Qummi, author of the famous book “Mafaatihul-Jinaan”, writes in his book: “I say, Shimr was in the forces of Ameer al-Mu’mineen on the Day of Siffin.” (Al-Qummi, “Safinatun-Najaat”, vol.4, p. 492, Chapter Sheen Followed by Meem)

  1. As-Sallamu-Alaykom,

    I haven’t read much of the material on this site, I was only given the link to this article in particular, and therefore if I missed any corrections made to this article on previous posts then forgive me.

    I as a Shia, who is a co-writer on the blog, have never heard, nor would ever claim, that Sunni’s, or a Sunni, killed Imam Hussein (as). The one who killed the Imam, and for that matter any of the Imams, cannot be considered a true Muslim. So if any Shia Muslim has ever accused Sunni Muslims of killing the Imam than they are ignorant (if they believe that the person was a truly devout Sunni Muslim), and likewise anyone who claims that a devout Shia Muslim killed Imam Hussein (as) is also ignorant.

    Allow me to use an anecdote. Let us say a Christian burnt the bible and said the Jesus in the bible is a liar. Yes he may himself be called a Christian (by whom I cannot guess), but are to take him as a Christian?

    Same with the Shia, Shia Muslims are aware that Imam Hussein (as) was purified by none other than Allah (swt) (visit my site to see the irrefutable proof), and therefore if the chance occurred would never kill him, if they truly believed in their deen.

    Another point should be made and it is this: would mind showing me the proof from both Shia and Sunni sources that the person you speak of killed the Imam? I do not doubt that what you are saying is true, because it is irrelevant to the issue at hand.

    And lastly, most Shia I know, myself included, blame certain soldiers for the slaughter of the Imam and his loyal companions, but I put the majority of the blame on Yazid. I will not go into details, but I thought you should know my perspective, and the perspectives of other Shias whom I know.
