Ja`far al-Sadiq stands up to the tyrant in the books of Sunnah

Share

Ja`far al-Sadiq (rah) in the books of Ahlul-Sunnah is a brave honorable Imam from Ahlul-Bayt, Unlike the Shia version. Here is a narration from “Hilayt-ul-Awliya’ wa Tabaqat al-Asfiya'” by al-Imam al-Hafiz abu Na`eem (rah):

حدثنا محمد بن عمر بن سلم ، ثنا الحسين بن عصمة ، ثنا أحمد بن عمرو بن المقدام الرازي ، قال : وقع الذباب على المنصور فذبه عنه ، فعاد فذبه حتى أضجره ، فدخل جعفر بن محمد عليه ، فقال له المنصور : يا أبا عبد الله لم خلق الله الذباب ؟ قال : ليذل به الجبابرة .

[Muhammad bin `Umar bin Salam told us, al-Hussayn ibn `Ismah told us, Ahmad bin `Amro bin al-Miqdam al-Razi said: Flies were on the Khalifah al-Mansour, so he started to wave them away until he became bored.
Then Ja`far bin Muhammad (al-Sadiq) entered on him, so al-Mansour asked  him: “O aba `Abdillah, why did Allah create flies?”
Ja`far replied: “To disgrace the tyrants.”]

So how then can they make Ja`far (rah) appear like a coward who sticks to Taqiyyah and praises the rulers to be on their good side?
