The View of Nepotism in Shia Islam

Here is a Ṣaḥīḥ ḥadīth that talks about Shī`ah Islām’s view on Nepotism. Just because you are from the lineage of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) does not make you any better than any other person, Allāh cares about the person’s taqwah.

حدثنا محمد بن موسى بن المتوكل رحمه الله قال حدثنا محمد بن جعفر الحميري عن أحمد بن محمد بن علي عن الحسن بن محبوب عن علي بن رئاب عن أبي عبيدة الحذاء قال سمعت أبا عبد الله ع يقول لما فتح رسول الله ص مكة قام على الصفا فقال يا بني هاشم يا بني عبد المطلب إني رسول الله إليكم و إني شفيق عليكم لا تقولوا إن محمدا منا فو الله ما أوليائي منكم و لا من غيركم إلا المتقون ألا فلا أعرفكم تأتوني يوم القيامة تحملون الدنيا على رقابكم و يأتي الناس يحملون الآخرة إلا و إني قد أعذرت فيما بيني و بينكم و فيما بين الله عز و جل و بينكم و إن لي عملي و لكم عملكم
From Abī `Ubaydah al-ḥadhā’ said, I heard Abā `Abd Allāh (عليه السلام) and say: “When the Messenger of Allāh (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) conquered Makkah, he stood upon al-ṣaffā (hill) and he (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said: “O children of Haashim, O children of `Abd al-Muttalib, I am a Messenger of Allaah (sent) to you, and I am compassionate towards you. Do not say, ‘Verily Muhammad is from us’. By Allāh, there are no followers from you and none from other than you except the muttaqūn (ones who have taqwah). I will not recognized you if you come to me on the Day of Judgment bearing this world upon your shoulders. And the people come to me bearing the akhirah. Indeed, I have excused myself from what is between me and you, and what is between Allāh (عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ) and you, and I have my deeds and you have your deeds”

    Yes Hadith sahih and there's nothing wrong in it Sanadan and matnan. but still you are a Munafiq Nader. Cut us some slack and convert to sunnism publicly. The smell of your hypocrisy is not concealed within the closet anymore. go lick ibn taimiyah's rear but stop pretending to be shia.
