Imam al-Hasan's (a.s.) and the Doubters

We have read something about the doubters what al-Mufid, may Allah have mercy on Him, has mentioned concerning the members of the Army of Al-Hasan, peace be on Him. We think that they have been called the doubters because they were affected by the ideas of the Kharijhites while they did not belong to them. They were hesitating. Namely they did not belong to a certain party.

I (the author) have known that al-Murtada have mentioned the doubters at a great lenth and regarded them as unbelievers in his book al-Amal, vol. 3. p. 93. It is as if that he understood that the doubters had doubts about the origin of the religion.

The doubters were a group of the people of Kufa. They were from the defeated rabble there. They had no intention to do good, nor had they an ability to do evil. However, their existence in its self was evil. It was a help for corruption, and a tool in the hands of the wrongdoers.

Adopted from the book: "Sulh al-Hasan (a.s.)" by: "Sheykh Radi al-Yasin"
