Part Three : The myth of 'Abd Allah ibn Saba'
 A word from Mahmud Abu Rayh1
In the name of God, the almighty Some individuals, who consider themselves men of learning, imagine that they haveattained a high degree of knowledge. They take for granted that the history of Islam,especially that part which is related to the early periods of this faith, is altogether correctand wholly free from doubt and ambiguity.Such persons, who should be called unlettered simpletons, imagine that the narrators of Islamic history have been without exception chaste, truthful and trustworthy individuals. They therefore believe everything that is narrated about that period and arefully convinced about all the contents of well known books of tradition and history, whereas these book contain all kinds of subject matter including 1. The great Egyptianscholar, ash-Shaykh Mahmud Abu Rayh, has written such valuable books on the survey of tradition as "Adwa' 'ala as-sunnat al-Muhammadiyah", and "ash-Shaykh al-Mudayrah" the like of which is not seen among other Sunni scholars. He has beeninfluenced by the facts stated in that book after studying its Arabic copy in 1381 of theHijrah and has written the above article. May God reward this great man for hisendeavors in the way of truth.even superstitious and unacceptable points in such a way that they offer little that isright and true and much that is wrong and untrue. The assurance of such simple personsconcerning the traditions and other topics of those books has reached a point where thatthey may accuse anyone who expresses doubt about truth of one of these traditions andpoints of iniquity and excommunicate them.
 
 Although God has granted intelligence and mental power to these individuals to enablethem to reflect and base their judgment on fairness and justice, yet owing to theirobstinacy and mental rigidity as well as their undue imitation of their predecessors they make their thought and inactive and useless, so that in being faced with logic and clearreasoning they refuse to surrender to truth and remain obstinate in their prejudice andreject that truth and criticize it. I hope that you, too, may be secure from their stingingtongue and unmanly attacks, but this is impossible since they will not remain silent before those who speak the truth. At the time I published my book of "Adwa' 'ala as-sunnat al- Muhammadiyah", I was involved with many difficulties by these so-calledscholars.In that book I had made a survey of the Prophet's traditions and showed how and whenand by whom these traditions had been quoted, and what lies had found their way intothem and how badly they had been mutilated. In that book I mentioned these and many other illuminating points, but as soon as the book was published they abused andcriticized me from every side, from Egypt, Hejaz and ash-Sham. I ignored those futiletalks and bravely tolerated those abuses, since I believed in my goal and had no doubtstepped on the path of truth.Surprisingly enough such persons are like poisonous thorns in the way of learning andknowledge; they accuse and violently attack seekers of truth and true scholars. How negligent they are of the serious and ill-omened consequences of their deeds! For, withthis ugly-deed they do not only betray knowledge and truth, but also make educated andenlightened individuals pessimistically about religion and piety. These enlightenedindividuals wish to weigh everything with the criteria of intellect and investigation, and when they deal with religious research they are faced with the attacks of these dry sectarians and their enmity, and in consequence they become weary of Islam andMuslims.It is now incumbent upon all scholars and learned individuals to break down the mentalletters of dependence, by not following and imitating; our predecessors. We mustcourageously endeavor to make a careful and profound survey of Islamic history, andcleanse it from the pollution of lies, prejudices, spitefulness and misinterpretations, and bring out the truths from behind the thick clouds of imitation and alteration, and fear nocriticism and reproach in this course.I am now very glad to express this truth and announce that a great scholar of Iraq,Professor Murtada 'Askari has risen to undertake this great scientific and religiousresponsibility and has published some books on this topic which are truly the mirror of truth and right thoughts. Anyone can thus study the real and genuine history of Islam which is reflected in those books and discover the truth. This great scholar has already published a book entitled 'Abd Allah ibn Saba'2 in which he has scientifically andconvincingly proved that in the history of Islam there never existed such a man as 'Abd Allah ibn Saba', but, that this figure was created by wicked and mysterious politicalhands, so that, they may divert the history of Islam from its true course under the coverof this shadowy figure, to their own interests.
