In the space of 1400 years, Sunni Islam has grown from thousands to over 1.5 billion, where has Shia Islam barely makes 100 million, we can CLEARLY see where Allah's protection of unity lies.
We can CLEARLY see that from your beautiful signature, TWO quotes from Imams, ONE quote from the Prophet SAW and NONE from Allah swt (Quran).
I'm pretty sure if Abu Bakr was what was stated above 50% of your imams wouldn't have named their sons Abu Bakr LOOOOOOOOL.
@ Replicant's Nemesis
You summarised my point tbh, your one is based on hatred and mine is based on love. Doubt the prophet SAW daughter would says such things about her father's closest friends.
Why is it so hard for you to answer questions directly and respond to clear Hadiths, instead of doing your utmost best to dodge and avoid everything in Sunni Islam that makes you feel uncomfortable?
Seriously Brother, what does my signature have to do with anything? Once again this is your attempt at dodging everything thrown at you. You don't have quested from Allah's book either...
I may have no quotes from Allah directly, but what is your point? How does that change the fact that as I said, our religion is based on the Oneness of Allah (swt) ? They are all in reference to Allah.
I quote my beloved Imam Al-Hussain
because I think it is a beautiful statement about the Most Merciful, I quote Imam Ali
because that is a line from one of the the most beautiful poems ever written, which explains to us that we need to focus our lives on Allah (swt) I quote the Holy Prophet, Ahmad
because that is a beautiful piece of advice that leads one to developing a stronger relationship with Allah (swt) and finally on the path towards Jannah, inshAllah.
If you disagree with any of the above, then I'd describe you as more than lost.
Please show me evidence that our Imams names their sons Abu Bakr. Even they did, which I don't find it a hard thing to swallow, what does it have to do with anything?
According to your own books Muhammad
said his own father will be in the fire (I am not sure how this is possible, considering to the best of my knowldge he was a Hanif (Believer in Monotheism, following the Relgion of Ibrahim
So if the Prophet would say that, why could Imam al-Baqir
say what he said about Abu Bakr??
As the Brother pointed out before, you guys have turned the Sahabah into infallible super humans who could do no wrong. Whenever you are presented with an Issue of theirs you do backflips in order to make it look better. In the case of Fadak, your own Hadiths state Fatimah (sa) died angry at Abu Bakr and didn't speak with him until she died.
You guys say Abu Bakr was right... He quoted the Prophet as saying: "Prophets do not leave behind inheritance." Well..
Either the Prophet contradicted the Qur'an (astagfirallah) or Abu Bakr is a lying becuase you need to tell Prophet Dawud
that he accidentally left his son Solomon
an entire kingdom as inheritance...
May the blindfold be removed from you, inshAllah.
