Ever seen a hadith you just don’t like? Doesn’t sit well with you? you feel like its extravagant? Can’t be true?…. Don’t be too hasty brothers and sisters. Do not reject a hadith you do not understand or researched into. It could lead you to perdition.

“I heard abu Ja’far (as) saying, ‘Indeed by Allah the most beloved of my companions to me is the most devout of them and the most learned (afqah) of them and the most concealing of them with our hadith. And the worst of state of them with me and the most detestable of them to me is the one who when he hears the hadith that is attributed to us and narrated from us, but he does not understand it and his heart does not accept it, he abhors it and denies it, and declares kufr upon the one professes by it, and he does not know whether perhaps the hadith has come out from us and from us is it sourced. So he is by that outside of our Walayah (guardianship).

Sanad: It is narrated from him (narrator of the Hadith above) from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn Mahbub from Jamil ibn Salih from abu ‘Ubaydah al-Hadhdha’

عنه، عن أحمد بن محمد، عن ابن محبوب، عن جميل بن صالح، عن أبي عبيدة الحذاء قال: سمعت أبا جعفر (عليه السلام) يقول: والله إن أحب أصحابي إلي أورعهم وأفقههم وأكتمهم لحديثنا وإن أسوأهم عندي حالا وأمقتهم للذي إذا سمع الحديث ينسب إلينا ويروى عنا فلم يقبله اشمأز منه وجحده وكفر من دان به وهو لا يدري لعل الحديث من عندنا خرج وإلينا أسند، فيكون بذلك خارجا عن ولايتنا
