Question about Imam Ahmad (ra) in prison
« on: April 16, 2015, 01:33:06 AM »
Assalamu Aleykum,

I have read in an article that Imam Ahmad (ra) when he was in prison didn't eat during 8 days and nights, do we know why he didn't ate or drunk ?

I think his whole opposition against the Mutazilla is all exaggerated. Its similar to how the 12ers use emotional stories to market their sect.

You are kidding right?

As I have known, Ahmad ibn HAmbal(r) and many other early scholars were tortured,punished by Abbasid Mutazilla khalifas .

Dude they even refused to exchange captured soldiers just bcuz the captured muslim soldiers (by Romans I think) were from ahlu sunnah and rejected the beliefs of the mutazillis.

I'm not. I think this part of history is emotionally exaggerated to win support for it.

Please stay on topic or open another thread.

Here is the text from Siyar A'lamu Nubala about Imam Ahmad (ra) saying he didn't ate during eight days :

وكان يحيى بن خاقان  ، وابنه عبيد الله  ، وعلي بن الجهم  يختلفون إلى أبي عبد الله  برسالة المتوكل   . ودامت العلة بأبي عبد الله  ، وضعف شديدا .

وكان يواصل ، ومكث ثمانية أيام لا يأكل ولا يشرب ، ففي الثامن دخلت عليه ، وقد كاد أن يطفأ ، فقلت : يا أبا عبد الله  ، ابن الزبير  كان يواصل سبعة ، وهذا لك اليوم ثمانية أيام . قال : إني مطيق . قلت : بحقي عليك . قال : فإني أفعل . فأتيته بسويق فشرب .

Do we know why he didn't ate during these days ?
