  3. Some Questions from a Sunni brother

    Abu al-Azhar – Abd al-Razzaq – Ma’mar – al-Zuhri – Ubaydallah b. Abdallah – Ibn Abbas رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا who said: The Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ glanced at Ali and said: O Ali, you are a leader in the world, and a leader in the hereafter. Your friend is my friend, and my friend is the friend of Allah. Your enemy is my enemy, and my enemy is the enemy of Allah. Woe be upon the one who hates you after me [Mustadrak ala al-Sahihayn, al-Hakim grades it Sahih] The chain has no defects.
  4. Some Questions from a Sunni brother

    Sorry Brother but sunni version of Ghadir doesn't make sense to me. Why was umer congratulating Imam Ali (as) ? This does indicate that Prophet (saw) announced Imam Ali (as) as his successor else there was no point for umar in congratulating him. Furthermore , if we go by sunni version then it proves that sahaba were hypocrites and they were not the people one can wish to emulate. Qur'an has instructed its followers on numerous places that how a believer should be in conduction and Prophet (saw) during his entire life has taught the same thing by setting his character as an example even then we see that prophet (saw) had to remind sahaba that imam Ali (as) was their friend (as per sunni version) . Beside this , Prophet (saw) had always called Imam Ali (as) as his brother then why he would demote Ali(as) to his friend on Ghadeer? This doesn't make sense. Also according to Ibn Taymiyah majority of Sahaba and Tabieen used to hate Imam Ali (as) , this shatters sunni notion of friendly relations between Ahlul Bait (as) and Sahaba.
  5. Shias didn't show up for debate with Shemrani

    He just kept blowing his own trumpet throughout the video. There is nothing in the videos that is worthy of being responded to. Someone has rightly said " Knowledge humbles the great man and puffs up the little man" .
  6. Al-Khisal, Pg. 554, Chapter about forty things, hadith number 31. it is the last hadith of this chapter.
  7. Some Questions from a Sunni brother

    Reference: Sahih Bukhari :Book 86 [Kitab Al Hudud] Chapter 31. Now this is another problematic part. Why did the ansar gather at Saqifa first? Didn't they know Imam Ali (as) was divinely appointed Imam ? Beside this , you have made many good points like Imam Ali (as) not informing sheikhain of Hazrat Fatima's(sa) burial. He didn't give allegiance to them for six months which He (as) should have given if he had held sheikhain in high regard. Nevertheless , Sunnis adduce that initially there was an conflict between Sheikhain and Imam (as) but when the sheikhain ruled in their caliphate the conflict was resolved (means they ruled justly). To substantiate this , they give the following hadith : Narrated Ibn `Abbas: When (the dead body of) `Umar was put on his deathbed, the people gathered around him and invoked (Allah) and prayed for him before the body was taken away, and I was amongst them. Suddenly I felt somebody taking hold of my shoulder and found out that he was `Ali bin Abi Talib. `Ali invoked Allah's Mercy for `Umar and said, "O `Umar! You have not left behind you a person whose deeds I like to imitate and meet Allah with more than I like your deeds. By Allah! I always thought that Allah would keep you with your two companions, for very often I used to hear the Prophet (ﷺ) saying, 'I, Abu Bakr and `Umar went (somewhere); I, Abu Bakr and `Umar entered (somewhere); and I, Abu Bakr and `Umar went out."' : Sahih al-Bukhari 3685 So what the brother is suggesting that Sahaba being the fallible can have conflict among them but this Hadith shows that Imam Ali (as) was later pleased with the sheikhain . Rest of your answer is perfect brother. I am very grateful for your input.
  8. Ok I will ask the brother and will let you know .
  9. Well my brother , this is the reference which [EDIT] gave on their website "Source: Al-Khisal. Chapter Section Forty And Above Numbers." In their article " Event of Pen and Paper". This is what I can give you at the moment and even if you want a more precise reference then tell me I will ask a brother .
  10. I do concur that the Infallibles don't need to investigate and they are aware of Person's character just like Khidr (as) was. But you guys are ignoring the fact that this hadith is giving a completely opposite message. Prophet (saw) said Imam (as) to kill a man and that man turned out to be an innocent . Hence , another problematic part.
  11. Brother can you kindly share the narration? Also is the Hadith of Al-khisal not authentic in terms of Chains ?
  12. A Sunni brother in my acquaintance is genuinely interested in Shia Islam . Nevertheless , he has some confusions regarding this matter. He has following Questions , I will be very grateful if any knowledgeable brother or sister can give valuable input in response to his Questions. 1- If Abu Bakar , Umar and Uthman were bad people or usurpers then why didn't Imam Ali (as) revolt against them just like Imam Hussain (as) did against a tyrant Yazeed? When we read Kitab Sulaym we find that Shia Hadith says that Imam Ali (as) didn't fight against caliphs because he had not enough number of helpers. Now this is not very convincing because Imam Hussain (as) too didn't have enough number of supporters with him in Karbala. So why there is an apparent contradiction in the actions of Imams when their purpose was preserve religion and fight against the corruption . Why do we see Imam Hassan (as) and Imam Ali (as) compromising and giving allegiance to the usurpers unlike Imam Hussain (as) ? 2- When we envisage historical reports then we see that Imam Ali (As) used to be a member of Shura made by caliphs. It is also very fascinating to see that the Caliphs used to seek Imam Ali (as) advice and preferred his opinions over their opinions . So if they were unjust and enemies of Imam (as) then why do we see them doing this ? We also see in narrations where Imam Ali (as) acknowledged that sheikhain were superior to him . Why he considered the killers of his wife to be superior to him? 3- It is a fact Shia books of Hadith were compiled way after Sunni books of Hadith were. Doesn't this fact technically make sunni books more authentic then shia books provided the fact that shia books were compiled later and concomitantly the probability of errors in their collection is higher ?
  13. This is not a good argument or is it ? The Qur'anic verses say that he was destined to be a transgressor but in the above Hadith we find that the man was innocent . If the case was opposite as you are implying then Imam Ali (as) wouldn't have left the man
  14. Despite the narration is not germane to Fiqh but its content is very problematic. Qur'an says Holy Prophet (saw) was sent as a mercy and Prophet (saw) was the best in terms of Akhlaq . Keeping this in mind , how Prophet (saw) could have ordered the killing of any person without even investigating the matter ? Also what Prophet (saw) said in this hadith has no basis in Qur'an
