Blessings for enemies?

Question:

Is it permissible to say the blessings for the enemies of the people of the House (a.)?

Response:

Ja’far As-Sadiq (a.) reported that Prophet Muhammad (s. ) said: “The worst scholars of our community are those who make others go astray from us, who cut off the way to us, who ascribe our names to our enemies, who give our titles to our enemies, who pray for them even though our enemies deserve to be cursed and who curse us, whereby we are encompassed by the blessings of God, God and His closest angels offer blessings on us and we have no need for these people to pray for us.” [Al-Ihtijaj by Abu Mansur At-Tabarsi, Volume 2 page 264]

عن أحمد بن علي عن الحسن بن علي عن جعفر بن محمد عليهم السلام عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم قال: أشرار علماء أمتنا المضلون عنا، القاطعون للطرق إلينا المسمون أضدادنا بأسمائنا الملقبون أضدادنا بألقابنا يصلون عليهم وهم للعن مستحقون ويلعنونا ونحن بكرامات الله مغمورون وبصلوات الله وصلوات ملائكته المقربين علينا عن صلواتهم علينا مستغنون
