Why are Shi’tes Called ‘Rejectionists’?

The reason for this name was mentioned by the Shi’ite Scholar al-Majlisi in his book ‘Bihaar al-Anwaar’. He said: ‘Chapter: The Virtues of the Rejectionists and Honor of this Name.’ He mentioned a narration on the authority of Sulaiman al-A’mush, ‘I entered upon Abu Abdullah Ja’far b. Muhammad, and I said: ‘May I be your ransom, people call us ‘Rawaafidh’ (i.e. Rejectionists), who are the Rawaafidh? He said: ‘By Allah, they have not given you this name; this is a name given to you by Allah in the Torah and the Gospels and was mentioned by Prophets Musa and Jesus.’[1]

It has been said that they were called ‘Rejectionists’ because they approached Zaid b. Ali al-Husain and they said: ‘Disown Abu Bakr and Umar, so that we can join you.’ He said: ‘They are the Companions of my grandfather, and I stand by them.’ They said: ‘We will then disown you.’ They were then called ‘Raafidhah’ (i.e. Rejectionists) and those who joined him were called ‘Zaidiyah’.[2]   

It also has been said that they were called by this name on account of their disavowal of the Caliphates of Abu Bakr and Umar.[3]
