What did the Imams (as) think about the two idols of Quraysh?

“I asked Abu Ja’far (as) about the two (Abu Bakr and Umar), so he (as) said: ‘O Abu Al-Fazl, don’t ask me about these two, for by Allah (swt), no one from among us passes away at all except being angry against these two, and there is none from us today except that he is angry at them. The old ones bequeath it to the young ones from us. These two have been unjust to us for our rights, and prevented us from our Fey (Spoils of War – Khums), and first one rode upon our necks, and caused damage to us with a damage in Al-Islam which can never be repaired ever until our Qaim (aj) makes a stand and speaks our speech’.
Then he (as) said; ‘But, by Allah (swt), when our Qaim (aj) makes a stand, or speaks our speech, he (aj) will expose the matters of these two of what they had concealed, and conceal from their matters what they used to make apparent. By Allah (swt), nothing has afflicted us from the afflictions, and what has passed of the difficulties against us, the People of the Household, except that these two laid the foundations of it at first place, so against these two are the Curses of Allah (swt), and the Angels, and the people altogether’.”

علي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه، عن حنان بن سدير، ومحمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن محمد عن محمد بن إسماعيل، عن حنان بن سدير، عن أبيه قال: سألت أبا جعفر (عليه السلام) عنهما فقال: يا أبا الفضل ما تسألني عنهما فوالله ما مات منا ميت قط إلا ساخطا عليهما وما منا اليوم إلا ساخطا عليهما يوصي بذلك الكبير منا الصغير، إنهما ظلمانا حقنا ومنعانا فيئنا وكانا أول من ركب أعناقنا وبثقا علينا بثقا في الاسلام لا يسكر أبدا حتى يقوم قائمنا أو يتكلم متكلمنا .
ثم قال: أما والله لو قد قام قائمنا [أ] وتكلم متكلمنا لأبدى من أمورهما ما كان يكتم ولكتم من أمورهما ما كان يظهر والله ما أسست من بلية ولا قضية تجري علينا أهل البيت إلا هما أسسا أولها فعليهما لعنة الله والملائكة والناس أجمعين.
