Aren't you the one who told me to get a thick skin? Then I suggest you do the same instead of getting all high and mighty because people have suspicion on your claim to be a Shi'ah. Act like x and you'll be called x, simple.
Except that I'm not acting like x, which most people here can see apart from a select few who apparently have emotional and intellectual difficulties that lead to a very selective reading of my posts.
You can try the innocent inquisitive act but it doesn't work. You used Wikipedia and your own guesswork to 'prove' it couldn't be possible then suggested anyone who thinks differently is wrong.
Yet again with the wikipedia comments? Tell me straight out, do you doubt that the information I quoted from wiklpedia is accurate? You seem to want to have it both ways, by criticising me for using wikipedia, but at the same time being unwilling to stick your neck out and say that you believe the information is wrong.
If you believe it is wrong, then say so. And if you believe it isn't, then stop crying about it.
Every single thread I've seen you start over the last few months you get plenty of answers that make it clear your position is wrong. But you're not asking because you genuinely want to know, you're mind was made up before you posted so start being honest rather than acting like it's a subject you're unsure on.
In this instance, I genuinely didn't know whether there were any ahadith or not. I had a suspicion that there weren't, for various reasons, but I didn't know for sure. So I gave people the chance to provide any, but the indications are that they don't exist.
As for these answers you are talking about, where are they? Did someone post a hadith on here? No. Did someone prove that al-Abbas ibn `Ali was over 8 feet tall? No. Obviously you are desperate to hold on to your beliefs, so you will cling to any straws, but that doesn't mean that it counts as solid proof.
Just because something isn't part of aqueedah does it mean it's fair play to denigrate it? Tell me, is love of all sahaba a core part of sunni aquaid? No, but does that stop sunnis being offended if you present any of them in a bad light?
If something is fabricated and/or absurd, then of course it's fair play to denigrate it.
You accused me directly of misquoting Noble Quran, now you change it to "I don't know about you specifically"?
Actually, if you read carefully, you will see that I didn't accuse you specifically.
"As for someone with your views accusing others of misquoting the Qur'an to suit their personal beliefs, that is just beyond hilarious."
In other words, I was accusing people with your type of views for doing it. However, I have to admit that I didn't actually mean 'misquote', I meant 'twist'. I don't recall any specific instances of people changing the wording of an ayah. Instead, ayahs are usually taken out of context or given weird interpretations. So for that, I apologise.
Shame on your lying and hypocrisy. In Mahe Ramadhan.
You have the nerve to say this after slandering me? Wow.
Someone (usually reliable) posted me a narration and I repeated it here. As soon as br macisaac pointed out it was not correct I removed it from my sig and posted to acknowledge the fact. It's called a mistake.
This is basically the problem with you guys. When it comes to confirming the things you already believe, you just switch off your brains, and take whatever is given to you by 'usually reliable' people. If you have been able to thinking objectively for even a few seconds, I'm sure even you could have figured out that the chances of this hadith being real were almost non-existent. However, your extreme bias blinded you to the obvious.
Tell me, how many times have you posted to acknowledge you were wrong?
And they serve beside Allah what can neither harm them nor profit them, and they say: These are our intercessors with Allah. Say: Do you (presume to) inform Allah of what He knows not in the heavens and the earth? Glory be to Him, and supremely exalted is He above what they set up (with Him). [Qur'an 10:18, Shakir translation]
Now, surely, sincere obedience is due to Allah (alone) and (as for) those who take guardians besides Him, (saying), We do not serve them save that they may make us nearer to Allah, surely Allah will judge between them in that in which they differ; surely Allah does not guide him aright who is a liar, ungrateful. [Qur'an 39:3, Shakir translation]
