Stories of the Prophet by ibn Kathir mentions mubahala on page 440 (darrussalam edition) between Moses and Qaroon. Note: Mohahala means cursing each other.

Do Shias have similar narration in their books?

  • Does it also mention why did one messenger curse another messenger? Is there also any backings from Qur'an quoted by Ibn Khatir about their story? – Honey Feb 15 at 21:53
             In the name of Allah, the most compassionate, the most merciful.

As much as I have a mediocre research, there doesn't seem to be such narration of Mubahala between Moses and Qaroon according to Shia Hadiths (Islamic narrations), but the hadith of Mubahala which have been mentioned is relevant to the Prophet (peace be upon him and his family) and the Christians of Najran, which is as follows:

Thus, the Prophet (s) suggested Christians of Najran to do mubahala and they accepted; however, on the day they had agreed before, they refused to do mubahala since they saw that the Prophet (s) came with closest members of his family, who were his daughter Fatima al-Zahra (a), his son-in-law Imam 'Ali (a), his grandsons Hasan (a) and Husayn (a) and thus they understood his truthfulness. This way the Prophet (s) became victorious in this event.
