Glimpses of Shiism in the Musnad of Ibn Hanbal

The Musnad of ibn Hanbal is considered among the most comprehensive and early collections of hadīth of the Sunni sect. One of the characteristics of this work is the wide space given to hadīth concerning the merits of the Prophet’s Ahl al-Bayt. Compared to the other hadīth compendiums of the Sunnis, the Musnad’s emphasis on this subject is so pronounced that it has attracted the attention of orientalists and other researchers.
