When did the Shi’ite Sect First Appear?

The Rejectionists[1][1] came into existence when a Jewish man (Abdullah b. Saba’) claimed to have become Muslim; he claimed to love the family of the Messenger of Allah and held extreme beliefs regarding Ali (t). He claimed that Ali (t) was the rightful heir to the Caliphate after the death of Prophet Muhammad (r). He then elevated the status of Ali to a divine one, as is mentioned in the Shi’ite source books.

Al-Qum’mi in his book ‘Al-Maqalat wal-Firaq’ (Articles and Sects)[1][2] admits that he existed and considers him to be the first to believe in the authority of Ali and he was the first to have condemned Abu Bakr, Umar and Uthman and the other Companions, this has also been mentioned by an-Nobakhti in his book ‘Shi’ite Sects’[1][3] and by al-Kish’shi in his famous book ‘Rijaal al-Kish’shi’ (the Men of al-Kish’shi)[1][4].

Muhammad Ali al-Mual’lim, a present day Shi’ite, also affirmed the existence of Abdullah b. Saba’ in his book ‘Abdullah b. Saba’ the Unknown Reality’[1][5].

As it has been said, ‘Recognition is the best of evidences’. The names previously mentioned are among the Grande Shi’ite scholars.

Al-Baghdadi said: ‘As-Saba’iyah, the followers of Abdullah b. Saba’, held extreme beliefs regarding Ali. They claimed him to be a Prophet and even ascribed divinity to him, claiming he was Allah!’

Al-Baghdadi also said: ‘Ibn as-Soda’, i.e. Abdullah b. Saba’, was a Jew from Heerah, who claimed to be a Muslim. He wanted to become powerful in the Kufa area, so he told them that he found in the Torah that every Prophet would have a regent and the regent of Prophet Muhammad was Ali.’

Ash-Shihristani mentioned that the first to call to the Imamate of Ali was Ibn Saba’. He also mentioned that the Saba’iyah was the first sect to bring about the belief in the absence of the Imam and other authoritative sources. This was then inherited by the various Shi’ite sects afterwards. The ideas of the Imamate of Ali and his rightful authority to the Caliphate are of the remnants of Ibn Saba’.

In this manner the belief and principle of regency, authoritative sources, absence of the Imam and attribution of divinity to these Imams[1][6] was brought about by Abdullah b. Saba’ the Jew.



 [1] Shi’ites are called ‘Rejectionists’ for the following reasons: the first is due to their rejection of the first two caliphs of Islam, Abu Bakr and Umar, the second reason is when they went to Zaid b. Ali b. al-Husain and they asked of him to reject and condemn Abu Bakr and Umar he said: ‘They are my companions.’ The Shi’ites said to him, we will then ‘reject’ you, and from this they were called ‘Raafidhah’ i.e. rejectionists.

 [4] Al-Kish’shi mentioned a number of narrations about Abdullah b. Saba and his beliefs. Look at 170,171,172,173,174 on pgs. 106-108.

 [5] This book is a refutation of a book written by a Shi’ite known as ‘Murtada al-Askari’ entitled: ‘Abdullah b. Saba’ and other False Narrations’ in which he rejected that anyone known as Abdullah b. Saba’ ever existed.
