In the 3rd century a.h. some narrators of hadiths were dismissed from Qom by Ahmad ibn ‘Isã Ash’ari. Since most of these narrators were accused of exaggeration abouth the place of Imams (Ghulow), it is held that the reason for their dismissal is exaggeration and deviation in belief and then a generalization is made to the effect that Qomis used to dismiss the narrators with a small sign of exaggeration. However, it seems that the only reason for their dismissal was not deviatin in beliefs, rather they were particular social activists whose presence in Qom was dangerous for the survival of Shiite community in Qom. Moreover, the dismissal of narrators (even if it is based on deviation in beliefs) was merely the approach of Ahmad Ash’ari and not all of the masters of Qom, and thus it should not be taken as the approach of the school of Qom.
