  1. Hi. This is my second asking here. As the political topic was controversially I expect this topic not be. I am just trying to learn. Is about the difference between Prophet and Imam. As you know sunni tradition take the difference just in a social and political sense. But I read in Henry Corbins' works, and some shia's works, that shiism have a metaphysical view about that. Of course this topic overcomes rational knowledge, but within my limits I would like understand something. Some sufis, like sheij Al Akbar Ibn Arabi, talk about Prophet Muhammad as pure divine light (nur muhammadiyna) which in our world appears as the individual known as Muhammad, but in this essence is not a mere individual. Is not just an historical figure. I saw something similar in shia tradition about Ali. So, from my point of view if we try to overcome the individual and historical understanding about Muhammad and Ali, we can not means them as two individuals. Their difference is not like difference among common people as John and Matheu or Sayd and Samid. Then, it seem like the sufi's view and shia view are the same, or at leas very similar. So, why the status of Muhammad and Ali became a controversial topic? Which is the best source (translated into european language) for to study that? can you recommend me something? Thank you very much. Be well
  2. Salam. At first I want to say thank you for accept me in this forum. I'm trying to get a better understanding about Shia Islam, and have many doubts. This is one: As I understand Ayatollah Khomeini drove a political revolution which was inseparable of spiritual goals. As I read before enter into political arena Khomeini was in Quom studing many things, also philosophy and mystic knowledge ('irfan). And when he became leader of the social and politic transformation of Iran this knowledge guided him. Is right? But, I see in different shia places (websites, blogs, etc) that today the anti western feelings are dominant, and the spiritual goals are not so clear. For example: Some shia people likes cuban revolution (Fidel Castro's revolution) and North Korea government because they are anti west. My problem about that is this: Castro and Kim (North Korea leader) are declared atheistic men. So those revolutions really have nothing to do with a spiritual revolution as Khomeini made. Those are or were materialistic revolutions... then, perhaps those are farest from iran's spirit than many western people. So, I ask you: the politicization of Shia Islam has not diverted (at least in part) the course of revolution? I am asking it with genuine good willing. I'm not trying to deny shia values. Is a real doubt. So, please do not take it as a lack of respect. If can give some light about that I'll be thankful.
  3. Assalamalaikum Brothers and Sisters, I have seen some of Dr.Zakir Naik videos. Is there any other Guy who is better than Zakir Naik ?... Do Shia like Zakir Naik ? Many non-believers have converted to Islam after interacting with Zakir Naik.... Can you suggest me some other Speaker.... The Speaker should be speaking in English...... Thank you

  7. Greetings everyone, I hope you are doing well. Well I need to state that I'm a non-Muslim seeking my path of being a better human and in process of researching all sorts of things (religions, spirituality, occult, etc) I was always attracted to Arabic things, especially taweez (talismans), vefks and similar. What I noticed is that Sufism would fit me as I begun meditating on Allah's names as mantras and they really make my meditations better. I'm also attracted to out-of-body experiences and surfing the Internet I got a feeling that Shia community is far more accepting to personal development (one's path) to Allah and relationship with the Qur'an. Did I conclude wrongly or is this true? I feel absolutely as I said in love with mystical side of Arab/Islamic world that I can't help it but still have a need of having some belief and prayers to God so would you recommend me a Shia/Sufi mixture of self development or? Oh and just to be clear - taweez only and only in case of helping others overcome ill situations both physically, spiritually and morally (and I do believe that the power from them comes from God himself but I don't agree that God is long bearded guy somewhere in the cloud but more as an intelligent (supreme) energy (all attributes with the names of God apply). Any advice and help is appreciated!
  8. Salaams, I'm really interested in attending a short Hawza program (1-3 months?), obviously during the summer (preferably to attend, and not virtual, altho at this point I don't mind either). I know they're offered by UK and Iranian Semiaries, but can't seem to find them online. Anyone have any links, or anything? Thank you! Duas,
  9. Greetings, To begin this, I need to express that I am not a Western leftist, or anyone trying to virtue signal to Muslims about how "open-minded" i am. I believe in God, country, community, family, and honor. I reject the godlessness of modern America, and seek to resemble my ancestors and their faith. I am the descendant of French Huguenot pilgrims that came to America in the early 17th century, American militiamen that fought against the British, and Confederate soldiers that fought against an invading Federal government. I would give my life to fight this godlessness that has taken the West. Now though i consider myself a true patriot, i despise the American government (and mostly all Western governments) that have been the source of our moral decay and separation from God. Since 1861, they have been the only true enemy of Christianity and the freewill of the American people, and now their tyranny has spread throughout the world. I would give my life to fight against this satanic entity without hesitation. I am reaching out to Shias because i see them fighting this same cause, but with remarkable honor. I listen to Ayatollah Khamenei, and Hassan Nasrallah, and their insight and wisdom. The NSA is probably going to have a field day with me after saying this, but i have a great respect for Hezbollah, and the Islamic revolution of Iran. I will not condemn men who are willing to fight and die to protect Christians and innocent civilians against Daesh in Syria and Iraq. No where else in the world can a resistance movement even begin to compare. I cannot deny that i have felt an urge to convert to Shia Islam, but my heart feels empty when i drift from Christ. Even though i know that there is still a great respect for Jesus as a prophet in Islam, my soul cannot abandon Christianity. I am learning more and more about Islam everyday, and gaining more and more respect, but i do have some serious concerns about what is happening with migration and the heinous crimes that are following. Before anyone else, i again condemn these governments for destabilizing these Middle Eastern countries (and i would even go so far as to speculate that these criminals have engineered this to tear apart Europe, making it easier to control). However, this doesn't change the fact that there is now a horrible rape epidemic that is plaguing European women, the terrorist attacks, the migrants assaults, etc. etc., and the fact that in the next hundred years, native Europeans and Christians may be a minority on their own soil. I cannot tolerate this, and it absolutely drives me insane with rage. I want to see Muslims and Christians living together peacefully, but capitulation to Islamic values in Western nations via immigration is invasion, and i believe wholeheartedly European men need to begin to fight back. I know these are not true Muslims, but how else does a Christian fight this invasion without fighting Islamic migration? Of course, there are Muslims who condemn this, but with the undeniable spike in crimes coming from Muslim migrants (especially horrific migrant sex crimes), what is there left to do? To the Muslims reading this, could you ever imagine seeing a Christian-Islamic alliance to fight both the criminal Western governments, the Zionist control of our government, media and their debauchery, but also the criminal migrants assaulting Western women, and disrespecting our nations? There would have to be compromises on both sides, but do you believe there is a possibility for this? And when i say Christians, i don't mean the modern Western Christian. Imagine Christianity could be reformed to where we resemble what we were during the Renaissance up until the 19th century. Men like Jan III Sobieski, and Confederate General Stonewall Jackson. Honorable men who stand against immorality and invasion with great honor, and do so, without fear, and give all credit to God. Even though Islam and Christianity have a horribly brutal and bloody history fighting one another, perhaps i must learn to accept God's will and see this Islamic migration as a potential blessing. The understanding of God and honor has been lost in the West, and with the rise of immoral atheism, we see their replacement. I believe there is great potential for Muslims and Christians to unite and fight against these evils, bringing an end to this horrible violence between our two religions. However, i am not a Muslim, and I do not know if this is possible. To Muslims, if Christians would act as true Christians, do you believe this type of alliance would be possible? I want to end saying i greatly respect true Islam, and I thank you for reading this wall of text, Sincerely, [Name removed by moderator] PS I must convey that though i condemn and despise the actions of the US Federal government and their use of the US military, i will always have a great respect for much of the American military community. Though there is evil among their ranks, many of these men are very honorable. They are men trying to serve their nation, but are horribly abused by the treachery and selfishness of their Generals and government.
  10. as salaam u alai kum YA ALI MADHADH where can i get a shia moulana in roodepoort to do my nikah? regards Armaana Syed Ali
  11. Aslaamu-alaikum to all the readers. I have a question that I was asked by a friend recently but got stuck for an answer. His question started with, in the Shia Fiqh, is The act of Hajj (pilgrimage) obligatory (Wajib) on females? To which I replied that Hajj is wajib on every Muslim, from my common sense. HOWEVER, he further asked me to prove if any females in prophets household (more so referring to Lady Khatijah sa, Lady Fatima sa, Lady Zainab sa) performed hajj and asked for prove. I have tried to research but couldn't find any obvious answers or hadees in regards. Has any one got more information to enlighten me about this? Many thanks, Jazakallah

  13. Popular shia website wilayat.net in one of its article on defense of Zurarah (one of the main shia hadith narrator) said: حدثني حمدويه، قال حدثني محمد بن عيسى، عن يونس، عن مسمع كردين أبي سيار، قال : سمعت أبا عبد الله (عليه السلام) يقول لعن الله بريدا و لعن الله زرارة Abu Abdullah (alaihi salam) said: “May Allah curse Buraydah and may Allah curse Zurarah. Hadith is weak. Reason: "Whatever Muhammad b. Isa narrated exceptionally from the books of Yunus is not reliable. LINK But when same Muhammad bin Isa narrated from same Yunus in criticism on Abu Bakr a.s and Umar a.s, it become thiqah. (9) حدثنا محمد بن عيسى عن يونس عن عبدالصمد عن ابى جعفر عليه السلام قال سمعته يقول ان من ورآء هذه اربعين عين شمس ما بين شمس إلى شمس اربعون عاما فيها خلق كثير ما يعلمون ان الله خلق آدم اولم يخلقه وان من وراء قمركم هذا اربعين قمرا مابين قمر إلى قمر مسيرة اربعين يوما فيها خلق كثير مايعلمون ان الله خلق آدم اولم يخلقه قد الهموا كما الهمت النحل لعنة الاول والثانى في كل وقت من الاوقات وقد وكل بهم ملائكة متى مالم يلعنوها عذبوا - كتاب بصائر الدرجات للصفار 1/506 From Muhammad ibn 'Isa ibn 'Ubaid (thiqa) from Yunus ibn 'Abd ur-Rahmaan (thiqa) from 'Abd us-Samad ibn Basheer (thiqa) from Abu Ja'far (a.s.). He ('Abd us-Samad) said: "I heard Abu Ja'far (a.s.) saying that: 'Behind this sun are forty such suns, and what is between a sun to another sun is forty years. Over there are many creations who do not know whether or not Allah created Adam (a.s.). And behind this moon of yours are forty such moons, and what is between a moon to another moon is forty days. Over there are many creations who do not know whether or not Allah created Adam (a.s.). They have been inspired, just like the Bee has been inspired, to curse the first and the second, all the time. And with them are Angels, who torture them when they do not curse the two." Basaa'er ud-Darajaat of Saffaar (r.a.) 1/506 LINK
  14. Salaam all, I have created this account because I love the helpful feedback and comments I've seen on this forum for months now, because I now am in need of help: To cut a long story short I keep wanting to leave my husband, he is very emotionless and my marriage feels one sided. I come from a Wahhabi and Sunni background, and he introduced me to the teaching of Shia Islam and I reverted within the week. I am young, and I did not have a wedding as my mum being from a Wahhabi background was unhappy with this choice, but my dad supported me, thank god, and we got our Nikah done. Since then, I have become increasingly isolated, I do not have any Muslim friends and I have never spoken to anyone about my marriage issues (besides my husbands- who does not seem to care). I have been pressured into wearing hijab by his family as they would forbid him marrying me, but he does not see any wrong in this and says that it was a good thing. All of these changes started to happen very fast, and I was 21 years old when I fell in love with him, I have been telling myself that things will get better, but nothing does and I am becoming increasingly depressed. I cannot speak to my parents regarding this because of everything we went through to be together, and I once spoke to my mum and she implied that I deserve this for my choice in husband. It has been a struggle and we have been together now for 4 years, he is a [occupation], which I realise is draining him and I am patient and try and be as good as I can, I cook for him his favourite meals, I am not [ethnicity] but have tried to learn some [language] and to learn all his favourite [ethnic] meals, and I try to give him space as best as I can too. All he wants to do is play computer/ video games when he comes home and very rarely spends time with me, I have brought this up many times, but nothing changes, and he seems not to care. Also, I have struggled with the hijab, as I live in a very racist town, but have persisted to wear it for God, the only thing that I hate is the hypocrisy that I'm starting to notice, such as, he pressured me to put it on, but when there is a semi naked lady on the telly he doesn't change the channel or look away? I don't understand, but we have had a few arguments regarding this. Today, I said to him I am very unhappy and am considering a divorce, he didn't seem to care and said go ahead... Problem is, I do actually love him, and don't want a divorce, especially as I know it will make things harder in many ways. Has anyone else gone through anything similar or has any advice or coping strategies please? I'm considering seeking professional help, but the town I live in rather racist and it would be hard to find a therapist that can empathise with a Muslim. Thanks for your time.
  15. Below is the trailer of a new movie called American Hussaini. Movie is to be released on youtube and will be of multiple series.
  16. Salam wa alaykum, brothers and sisters I have had something on my mind for a while and needed a place to talk to more people about it, gain more knowledge about it, and discuss the problems I See. As we all know, the major branches of Islam is Sunni & Shia, I myself am a open minded Muslim who even contemplated god and religion itself at one point. I think that was important because Allah SWT is the one who guided me on to a straighter path with clear answers. Most of us, actually, ALL of us are born and raised following what our fathers believed. I come from a Sunni family so I was taught the Sunni way, Shias as well, Christians as well, Jews as well. Many Christians say Jesus is god because they have not studied their religion but just believe what they were told, believe what their fathers have told them, believe what in their mind seems believable. Same to us Muslims, and every person of every religion. Until that person uses his own brain that Allah has given each of us to use and learn for themselves. Here are a few good examples for my point; SOME sunnis don't like Shias, Because; could be for many reasons, their own father was just a bad person that hates Shias, they went to a school where the teacher looked down on Shias. Etc etc. Also vice versa for Shias. (These are examples, taken place for any group of any party) Another example, some Shias call Imam Ali in the athan, this could be because of many reasons. One person was raised around other Shias who call him in athan, or, I have met a Shia who said Imam Ali was greater than the prophet, maybe he believes Imam Ali deserves it. REGARDLESS OF THE EXAMPLES,, my point is many people follow blindly. **please do not comment on my examples, they are one of 1000 examples of weird things I have seen sunnis and Shias do** -------- My main question by the way is, Do you agree that it is WRONG to call yourself a Sunni or Shia? - one might claim, no because "we are doing it the right way" - one might claim, no because "I don't want to be like those sunnies" "Shias" - one might claim, no because "they don't follow the imams the right way" ---- your duty as a Muslim is not to do anything for other people, but in the end for Allah. i call myself a Muslim and not a Sunni because for one, I am a Muslim Lol the Quran states, the prophet does not like those who separate Islam. By calling myself a Sunni I am HELPING the problem, and if you are a good Muslim, you would comprehend that, you would understand what I am trying to say instead of trying to find an excuse to keep calling yourself Shia or Sunni -- the Imam issues of ahlul bayt are another story, not here to discuss it but for the curious, my bottom line, is that for us to fight about what the imams did for the sake of Islam is dumb what happened back then, only god knows it is not our responsibility to figure it out or fight about it. You will only be talking to hard headed, stubborn people or believe they are right regardless. Facts tell it all. And regardless they did at they did for Islam, and Allah. -- THANK YOU ALL. BY THE WAY, i don't care if you reply, or if you agree or not, or agree but just have to much pride to NOT say it out loud. Even tho it would be for the sake of Allah, not me. I don't care, because I would rather hoped I could install some knowledge and wisdom into my fellow brothers and sisters instead of debating the issue. To each their own to understand, i have done my duty to try and spread my knowledge. There's only so much one can do.
  17. Salam everyone , I'm new to this forum and have a question. I'm a shia Muslim residing in the the USA, and I just bought a painting depicting Buddha's face to decorate my living room. According to shia law, is it permissible to hang such a piece of art in the house? It's obviously just for decorative purpose and the picture basically depicts budha's face with a few flowers on the sides. A few of my Sunni friends here pointed out that muslims can't have a picture of Buddha in the house as only Buddhists would have those. Is this true? Please help me solve my dilemma and if possible, please provide reference or a fatwa to help me understand. Thanks, Erum
  18. Asalaam Alaikum wr wb brothers and sisters, Have you come across this narration from Prophet Muhammad sawas? "The Messenger of Allah Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÂáå æÓáã said: Hijaz will be ruled by a man who has the name of an animal (i.e King Fahd (leopard). If you looked at him you will see that he is cross-eyed from far and if you came close to him, you will not see anything wrong with his eyes. A brother called Abdullah will succeed him. Woe unto the Shia from him, he repeated it three times, give me the glad tidings of his death, I will give you the glad tidings of the appearance of the Hujjah" - 250 Signs p.122 Muhammad Ali Tabatabai
  19. So, I've been reading a book, and speaking with the author via his fan mail email address. And I've become so fascinated with not just a character that is minor, but the premise to the life of that character. And this lead me to decide to write a Novella about a Spy that reincarnates with new convictions, and new afflictions. The incarnations happen between the Soul's Partner as a spy. What I have written so far, is summarized as: a Syrian refugee born in England, that is deaf, and who's mother is in MI-6 as a spy to the crown with no living family because of Russian bombing, assigned to uncover the death of the Prada Llama, who in turn reincarnated in her daughter My question to the community, and concern, is if that would be crossing a line. And also, is there anyone I may speak with to help me develop further the characters?
  20. I converted to Islam not to long ago and am learning to pray, but I have a hard time finding Shia Mosques in my area, could someone help me? I live in the Tampa area, preferably near St.Petersburg, but I will travel if I have to.
  21. Hi there, I am a 15 year old living in England. I had a very strange but magical dream two days ago. I was flying around the Kaaba with I think my mother. It was the most beautiful sight ever. The Kaaba was so close to me and I was flying around I think prophet Muhammad (pbuh) Shrine/Roza was opposite but Kind of the the left side of the Kaaba. The Kaaba was as follows: It was the Kaaba and it looked like how it looks and there were three places of standing. The first was a circle and it was full of people the the outside layer was that of Imam Hussain's Roza because it was only a Rectangle standing area and that too was full of people. Then the opposite side (just like how Imam Hussain and Hazrat Abbas a.s Roza's are structured) was what I believe Prophet Muhammad's shrine. Subhanallah. As I was flying around with my mother she said to me "Mecca is the brightest place of Earth" and I was amazed, then Allah took me to outer space and i was going at a speed which was exceptionally fast that my mind was scared even though I was asleep. It is hard to explain. I was in pitch blackness but I turned to the right direction in the pitch darkness where I could see nothing, and I flyed over somehow I chose the right direction (in pitch blackness I could have gone to wrong way and away from the earth but I went the direction of the earth) and I was going at speeds which are unexplainable. Then I saw the Beautiful Eartb to the left and the Sun to the right. They were not that far away from each other. In earth there it was dark from space but only one area there was a beautiful yellow light shining which i could see from space. The sun was a yellow ball and the earth was dark with only one area where light was shining. Going in very fast speed, I aimed for the bright spot but I was scared even in my dream of crashing and of Jinns in space but I carried on going for earth and as I got closer I realised that the spot where there was yellow light beaming out of was the KAABA, MECCA. My mothers words had come true. I kept flying towards earth until I was so afraid of crashing/dying that I woke myself up. I could feel my conscious self trying to wake myself up if that makes sense? Please can I have your thoughts on this dream? It is by far the most beautiful dream I have ever heard, it is a shame that worldly fears were present even when I was flying around the Kaaba and even when Allah took my soul of this world to prove my mothers statement that Kaaba is the most lit up place on earth. Subhanallah. I told my mother this dream when I woke up and she said it was beautiful and the reason I was scared was because I am a sinner and the worldly fears. She said she was worried I went to pitch blackness as that I generally a bad sign, but she was glad I found the way around to planet earth and kaaba even I didn't make it all the way because I woke myself up due to fear of Jinns and Crashing. What do you guys think? I would like to hear your thoughts on this.
  22. Salaam to everyone This is my first post, hopefully not last (admins don't ban me) I'm new to Islam. After leaving the Hari krishna cult, which has given me nothing but misery. Lately, I've been finding it difficult to actually get a sense of belonging. I'd identify myself as a Muslim, in terms of my actions and where I get information from, I'd say more towards the Sunni persuasion. I do YouTube videos just for fun. But lately, it's become serious. Shocking, in terms of my views and opinions I've attracted a lot of support from the Shia community and have been shunned and even had death threats from people who identify themselves as Sunni. I speak against Wahhabi and Salafism. I want Shia people to give me their thoughts on Wahhabis and Salafis. Are there any Shia's who agree or support them? It seems like some Sunnis do but they would never identify themselves as Salafi but will be the first to scream and shout that they are Sunnis. Here is my video, please do go through the comments. Some are laughable, some are really stupid and some really good ones who support my ideas. Am I doing a wrong this but exposing Saudi Arabia? Am I incorrect in my understanding of Islam? Does Islam actually state you can't criticize people of Saudi Arabia because Mecca and Madinah sits with them? I do hope the above makes sense. Regards Praecursator 007

Shia Shaikh Saduq wrote in his book: هَذَا هُوَ الْأَذَانُ الصَّحِيحُ لَا يُزَادُ فِيهِ وَ لَا يُنْقَصُ مِنْهُ وَ الْمُفَوِّضَةُ لَعَنَهُمُ اللَّهُ قَدْ وَضَعُوا أَخْبَاراً وَ زَادُوا فِي الْأَذَانِ مُحَمَّدٌ وَ آلُ مُحَمَّدٍ خَيْرُ الْبَرِيَّةِ مَرَّتَيْنِ وَ فِي بَعْضِ رِوَايَاتِهِمْ بَعْدَ أَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّداً رَسُولُ اللَّهِ أَشْهَدُ أَنَّ عَلِيّاً وَلِيُّ اللَّهِ مَرَّتَيْنِ وَ مِنْهُمْ مَنْ رَوَى بَدَلَ ذَلِكَ أَشْهَدُ أَنَّ عَلِيّاً أَمِيرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ حَقّاً مَرَّتَيْنِ وَ لَا شَكَّ فِي أَنَّ عَلِيّاً وَلِيُّ اللَّهِ وَ أَنَّهُ أَمِيرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ حَقّاً وَ أَنَّ مُحَمَّداً وَ آلَهُ صَلَوَاتُ اللَّهِ عَلَيْهِمْ خَيْرُ الْبَرِيَّةِ وَ لَكِنْ لَيْسَ ذَلِكَ فِي أَصْلِ الْأَذَانِ وَ إِنَّمَا ذَكَرْتُ ذَلِكَ لِيُعْرَفَ بِهَذِهِ الزِّيَادَةِ الْمُتَّهَمُونَ بِالتَّفْوِيضِ الْمُدَلِّسُونَ أَنْفُسَهُمْ فِي جُمْلَتِنَا ‘This is the authentic (Sahih) Adhan, nothing is to be added or subtracted from it. The Mufawwidah’s (form of Ghulat), may Allah curse them, have fabricated traditions and have added to the Adhan مُحَمَّدٌ وَ آلُ مُحَمَّدٍ خَيْرُ الْبَرِيَّةِ (Muhammad and the family of Muhammad are the best of mankind) twice. In some of their traditions, after saying أَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّداً رَسُولُ اللَّهِ (I bear witness that Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah) (they add) أَشْهَدُ أَنَّ عَلِيّاً وَلِيُّ اللَّهِ (I bear witness that ‘Ali is the Wali of Allah) twice. Among them there are others who narrate this أَشْهَدُ أَنَّ عَلِيّاً أَمِيرُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ (I bear witness that ‘Ali is the commander of the faithfull) twice. There is no doubt that ‘Ali is the Wali of Allah and that he is the true commander of the faithful and that Muhammad and his family, peace be upon them, are the best of creatures. However, that is not of the original Adhan. I have mentioned this so that those who have been accused of concocting tafwid and have insulated themselves in our ranks should be known”. (Man Laa YaHduruh Al-Faqeeh, vol. 1, pg. 290 – 291) Example #2: Ghulat rejected the possibility of forgetfulness(Sahw) in Salah(prayer) from Prophet Muhammad(saw). Classical Shia scholar Shaikh Saduq wrote in his book “Man la yahduruhul faqeeh”: وكان شيخنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد رحمه الله يقول: أول درجة في الغلو نفي السهو عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله، ولو جاز أن ترد الاخبار الواردة في هذا المعنى لجاز أن ترد جميع الاخبار(4) وفي ردها إبطال الدين والشريعة. “And our sheikh Muhammad ibn Al-Hasan ibn Ahmad ibn al-Walid(rahimuhullah) said: “First level in Ghulu is denial of Sahw(forgetfulness) from Messenger(saaw), and if it is permitted to deny narrations with that meaning, then it’s permitted to deny all narrations, and in their denial is restriction(ibtal) of religion and Shariat”. Then Sheikh Saduq quoted the words of his Shaikh, He added: وأنا أحتسب الاجر في تصنيف كتاب منفرد في إثبات سهو النبي صلى الله عليه وآله والرد على منكريه إن شاء الله تعالى. “And I hope to gain reward in compiling a book dedicated to prove Sahw(forgetfulness) of Nabi(saw) and refutation to those who reject that”. Shia scholar Sheikh Saduq further said: إن الغلاة والمفوضة لعنهم الله ينكرون سهو النبي صلى الله عليه وآله ويقولون: لو جاز أن يسهو عليه السلام في الصلاة لجاز أن يسهو في التبليغ “Al-Ghulat and al-mufaqida May Allah Curse Them, reject possibility of forgetfulness(Sahw) from Nabi(saw), they say: If error in prayer is possible, then error in tabligh is also possible” Example #3: The Ghulat believed that Imams had Ilm al-Ghaib (knowledge of unseen). Shaikh Mufid wrote in his book Awailul Maqalat (page 38): فأما إطلاق القول عليهم بأنهم يعلمون الغيب فهو منكر بيِّنُ الفساد “As for saying that the Imams know Ghaib, so it is an extremely evil and corrupt belief. Ibn Shahr Ashoob (586 AH) wrote in his book Mutashabih al Qur’an (Volume 1 page 211): النبيّ والإمام يجب أن يعلما علوم الدين والشريعة ولا يجب أن يعلما الغيب وما كان وما يكون، لأنّ ذلك يؤدّي إلى أنّهما مشاركان للقديم تعالى “The Prophet and the Imam must have full knowledge of the Islamic laws,but it is not incumbent upon them to have knowledge of ghaib, after all that would then mean that they are partners of Allah. Shia scholar, Shaikh Sadooq in his book Kamal al Deen, page 116 stated: قد أكثرت في ذكر علم الغيب، والغيب لا يعلمه إلا الله، وما ادعاه لبشر إلا مشرك كافر We have expanded a lot about the issue of knowledge of the unseen, and no one knows the unseen except Allah (swt), and no one claims it for a human except for a polytheistic disbeliever (mushrik kafir).[Kamal al Deen, page 116] Example #4: The Ghulat held the belief of Tafwidh Classical Shia scholar Shaikh Sadooq in his book Iteqadat, under: باب الاعتقاد في نفي الغلو والتفويض Chapter: Belief in negation of the Ghulu(exaggerating the status of the Imams) and the tafwidh(delegation of affairs of creation) stated: وروي عن زرارة أنه قال ، قلت للصادق ـ عليه السلام ـ : ( إن رجلا من ولد عبد الله بن سبأ يقول بالتفويض. قال ـ عليه السلام ـ : ( وما التفويض ) ؟ قلت : يقول : إن الله عزوجل خلق محمدا صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم وعليا ـ عليه السلام ـ ثم فوض الأمر إليهما ، فخلقا ، ورزقا ، وأحييا ، وأماتا. فقال : ( كذب عدو الله ، إذا رجعت إليه فاقرأ عليه الآية التي في سورة الرعد ( أم جعلوا لله شركاء خلقوا كخلقه فتشابه الخلق عليهم قل الله خالق كل شيء وهو الواحد القاهر ) . فانصرفت إلى رجل فأخبرته بما قال الصادق ـ عليه السلام ـ فكأنما ألقمته حجرا ، أو قال : فكأنما خرس And it is narrated from Zurarah that he said, I said to Imam al Sadiq (as): “Indeed a man from children of Abdullah ibn Saba professes by tafwidh.” Said [Imam] (as): “And what is tafwidh?” I said: “He says: Indeed Allah (swt) created Muhammad (pbuh) and Ali (as), then delegated the command to them, for creation, and to give rizq (sustenance), and to give life, and to give death.” So [Imam (as)] said: “Enemy of Allah (swt) lied, when you go back to him then recite upon him these ayaat (verses) in Surah al Ra’d (Abdullah Yusuf Ali’s translation): [Or do they assign to God partners who have created (anything) as He has created, so that the creation seemed to them similar? Say: “God is the Creator of all things: He is the One, the Supreme and Irresistible.”] So I turned (went back) to (that) man, then informed him by what Imam al Sadiq (as) had said, so it (his reaction) was as if he had swallowed a stone or had become mute/dumb.” Similarly, Shia Shiekh Sadooq in his, Uyun Akhbar al Redha, Volume 1, Page 219, stated: حدثنا محمد بن علي ماجيلويه (ره) قال: حدثنا علي بن إبراهيم بن هاشم عن أبيه عن ياسر الخادم قال: قلت للرضا عليه السلام ما تقول في التفويض؟ فقال: إن الله تبارك وتعالى فوض إلى نبيه (ص) أمر دينه فقال: (ما آتيكم الرسول فخذوه وما نهيكم عنه فانتهوا) فاما الخلق والرزق فلا، ثم قال عليه السلام: إن الله عز وجل يقول: (الله خالق كل شئ) وهو يقول: (الله الذي خلقكم ثم رزقكم ثم يميتكم ثم يحييكم قل هل من شركائكم يفعل من ذلكم من شئ سبحانه وتعالى عما يشركون Told us Muhammad b. ali Majiloweh (ra) who said: Told us ali b. Ibrahim b. Hashim from his father from Yasser the servant who said: I said to Imam al Redha (as): “What do you say about al tafwidh (the belief that Allah has delegated the affairs of creation to His chosen people)?” So [Imam (as)] said: “Indeed Allah (swt) delegated to His (swt) prophet command of His (swt) religion.” Then [Imam (as)] said: “So take what the Messenger assigns to you, and deny yourselves that which he withholds from you.” (Al Qur’an 59:7), as for the creation and the sustenance, then no.” Then [Imam (as)] said: “Indeed Allah (swt) says (in al Qur’an 13:16): “Allah is the Creator of all things”, and He (swt) says (in al Qur’an 30:40): “It is God Who has created you: further, He has provided for your sustenance; then He will cause you to die; and again He will give you life. Are there any of your (false) “Partners” who can do any single one of these things? Glory to Him! and high is He above the partners they attribute (to him)!” Example #5: The Ghulat denied the occurrence of the marriage between Umar bin khattab(as) and daughter of Ali(as) – Umm Kulthum. We read in Shia book Mirat ul Uqool: عن الشيخ محمد بن محمد بن النعمان أرفعه إلى عمر بن أذينة قال: قلت لأبي عبد الله عليه السلام: إن الناس يحتجون علينا أن أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام زوج فلانا ابنته أم كلثوم، و كان عليه السلام متكئا فجلس و قال: أ تقبلون أن عليا أنكح فلانا ابنته؟ إن قوما يزعمون ذلك ما يهتدون إلى سواء السبيل و لا الرشاد ثم صفق بيده، و قال: سبحان الله أما كان أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام يقدر أن يحول بينه و بينها، كذبوا لم يكن ما قالوا، إن فلانا خطب إلى علي عليه السلام بنته أم كلثوم فأبى فقال للعباس: و الله لئن لم يزوجني لأنزعن منك السقاية و زمزم فأتى العباس عليا فكلمه فأبى عليه فألح العباس، فلما رأى أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام مشقة كلام الرجل على العباس و أنه سيفعل معه ما قال، أرسل إلى جنية من أهل نجران يهودية يقال لها صحيقة بنت حريرية فأمرها فتمثلت في مثال أم كلثوم، و حجبت الأبصار عن أم كلثوم بها و بعث بها إلى الرجل فلم تزل عنده حتى أنه استراب بها يوما فقال ما في الأرض أهل بيت أسحر من بني هاشم، ثم أراد أن يظهر للناس فقتل فحوت الميراث و انصرفت إلى نجران، و أظهر أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام أم كلثوم، Umar ibn Uzaynah asked Imam Jafar Sadiq: ‘People claim that ‘Ali married his daughter to such a person’. The Imam, who was until then sitting down, stood up and said angrily, “Whoever holds such a viewpoint is misled.” Subhanallah! Was Imam ‘Ali unable to free his daughter from their clutches? He could have stood between them and her to protect, they have fabricated a lie … (the whole story of Umm Kulthum being replaced by Jinn and the Jinn’s marriage to Umar thereforth) Esteemed Shia scholar Mulla Baqir Majlisi says regarding it: أقول: لا منافاة بينه و بين سائر الأخبار الواردة في أنه زوجه أم كلثوم، لأنهم صلوات الله عليهم، كانوا يتقون من غلاة الشيعة، و كان هذا من الأسرار، و لم يكن أكثر أصحابهم قائلين لها، كذا ذكره الوالد العلامة قدس الله روحه I say: There is no contradiction between this narration and the other narrations that he married his daughter Umm Kulthum, because the Imams would fear from the Ghulat Shia, and this is from the secrets, and because plenty of his companions didn’t believe in it, this is what Allamah has also mentioned. (Mirat ul Uqool, Vol. 21, p. 198). Example #6: The Ghulat denied the three daughters of Prophet Muhammad(saw) being his biological daughters. Esteemed Shia scholars such as, Ibn Shahr Ashoob in, Manaaqib, vol. 1, pg. 159; and Al-Majlisi in, Bihaar Al-Anwaar, vol. 22, ch. 2, pg. 191 stated: “And the bidah(innovation) that Ruqayyah and Zaynab were two daughters of Haalah, sister of Khadeejah”. Shia scholar Al-Tustaree(d. 1415 AH) said that this bid`ah(innovation) was started from the book of Abu Al-Qaasim Al-Koofee, we read: “Then there is no doubt that Zaynab and Ruqayyah were daughters of the Prophet(saw) , and the bid`ah which it has been mentioned in the book of Abu Al-Qaasim (Al-Koofee).”(Al-Tustaree, Qaamoos Al-Rijaal, vol. 9, pg. 450). This, Ali bin ahmad Abu Al-Qaasim Al-Koofee was Ghali Shia. There is an ijmaa`(consensus) among classical Shia scholars to contemporary scholars on the status of Abu Al-Qaasim Al-Koofee. They have all said that he was a “Ghulat” (exaggerator), “kadhaab” (liar), and a person who had a “faasid madhhab” (corrupt belief). Classical Shia scholar Ibn Al-GhaDaa’iree (d. 411 AH) said about him: “Liar, Ghaali (exaggerator), person of bid`ah and discourse. I saw that he has many books, and he is not turned to.” (Kitaab Al-Du`afaa, pg. 82, person # 104) Classical Shia scholar Al-Najaashee (d. 450 AH) said about him: “Ghulaa (exaggerator) at the end of his life, and he has a fasad (corrupt) belief, and he composed many books, many (of those books while) on the fasaad (corrupt belief)” “And this man is claimed to the Ghulat a great position”. (Rijaal Al-Najaashee, pg. 265 – 266, person # 691). Classical Shia scholar Al-Toosee (d. 460 AH) said about him: He was an Imaamee (12er Shee`ah) of the straight path, and he composed many relevant books, from them were: Kitaab Al-Awsiyaa‟, Kitaab fee Al-Fiqh `ala Tarteeb, and Kitaab Al-Muzinee. Then, was confused, and showed the madhhab of al-mukhammasah, and he composed books in the (states of) Ghulu and confusion” [Al-Toosi, Fihrist Al-Toosee, pg. 271, person # 390] Imam Jafar Sadiq a.s about ghulat (exaggerators)
