This article is not in good shape. There are broken links in the bibliography - which, in my opinion, never should have used online links in the first place.

If we read al-Tabari we don't see Abdullah ibn Abbas very often. Since he was the ancestor of the Caliphs I imagine al-Tabari would not have negelected him. Historically it seems as though he was only active during the first fitna. He was Ali's general and later Ali's governor of Basra. Other than this he seems to have played no part in politics - but this alone should endear him to Shi'ites.

In the western tradition he appears as a respected narrator of a modest number of hadiths. He seems to have become the font for hadiths in Bssra. Said ibn al-Jubayr (executed just after the second fitna) is the most often quoted (in al_Bukhari) narrator from Ibn Abbas and his connection with Ibn Abbas seems to have been during Ibn Abbas's time in Basra.

But Ibn Abbas' main claim to fame is as an expert on tafsir. More than on modern critic has decided that the idea of Ibn Abbas doing tafsir was a third century idea. But no one has offered a suggestion as to why Ibn Abbas should have been imagined to be involved in tafsir.

It seems to me that an article on Ibn Abbas should be centered on his position in the tafsir tradition and the quaint pious anecdotes should be dropped DKleinecke (talk) 18:07, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
