In the name of Allah the beneficient the merciful,

Salamunalaykum,

This hadith puts in such clear and precise words, so succinctly, how one should think of Allah swt, and why we worship Allah swt and believe he exists, rather than simply believing matter, material or the universe is 'God'. I feel this hadith needs to be studied further, whole books simply written on it, and taught to all. By Allah, this hadith, if pondered upon and make one tremble in awe at Allah swt , and fill ones heart with yaqeen as to why on the day of ghadeer, Rasullah s.a.w called on Al a.s , and why Rasullah s.a.w stated we must follow the Quran and the Ahlulbayt a.s. In fact, reports say he repeated ahlulbayt thrice. We should all be flying the banner of Tawheed. The argument for the truth sunnah of Muhammed s.a.w can be won on arguments about ahlulbayt, companions, imamah, hadiths. But i personally believe it is won almost unanimously on Tawheed.

I recommend watching the video - it contains the hadith, i will post the transcript and reference below it:

The hadith:

Al Kafi

H 313, Ch. 16, h 4 – Graded Sahih by Alama Majlisi

The Imam said, "There is nothing in the universe, but that is subject to annihilation, alteration, change, decay, transition from one color to another, from one shape to another and from one quality to another. They increase, decrease and change from decrease to increase, except He, Who is the Lord of the worlds. He alone is eternal and in one state. He is the first, before every thing and the last eternally. His attributes and names do not change as they do in the case of others. A man at one time is dust, at other time flesh and blood, then turns into decaying bones and finally becomes dust. A piece of date  at one time is raw, at another time ripe, mature and then it dries up. With every change, the names and attributes also change. Allah, the Majestic, the Glorious is different from all such things."

Salam aleikum brother, 

Very nice Hadith indeed. 

Dear brother, iblees l.a. knew about all this. He was one of The best worshipers of Allah swt. His tawheed was very high. But his tawheed was lost when he did not follow the command of Allah swt.

Brother, you mentioned that the prophet saaw emphasised his Ahlulbayt (a). What did he mean by that? Why did he highlight the importance of holding fast to the Quran and Ahlulbayt? 

This command is the same as the command of Allah to prostrating to Adam (a). The best of worshipers and the one who had best knowledge of tawhid failed, because he did not submit to the will of Allah. The Muslims did so, when Allah, via his beloved prophet, commanded the Muslims  to hold fast to Ahlulbayt, the declared war against them, culminating in the brutal killing of Imam Hussein,the most beloved grandson of Peophet Muhammed (saaw). 

So, my question is, what is your understanding of the command regarding the two elements the Quran and the Ahlulbayt? 

Blessings,

seekingtruth,

walaykumsalam,

Usually it is Imam Jaffer as Sadiq a.s, the hadith says abu abdillah a.s - so i am assuming it is him, but it could be one of the other imams a.s (hopefully another brother can clarify for us by looking at the chain for which companion is to which imam a.s)

Walaykumsalam,

My understanding is that the Quran and Ahlulbayt a.s are pretty much inserperable. The ahlulbayt a.s are the walking Quran, they are the talking Quran.

Salam, 

thanks. What does that exactly mean? 

How is it understood via the Sunni perspective?

    • If one turns to Jesus for a favor, I don't see how or why God should resent it. You see, SoP, asking someone for a favor does not mean that you worship him. Asking someone for something just means that you consider him capable of fulfilling your wish. That is all. It does not mean you necessarily equate him to God. So personally I would have no problem if a Christian (or even a Muslim) asks Jesus for something. Asking Jesus for something is no different to asking your boss to give you a salary raise or a promotion. Why do you ask your boss? Why don't you just ask God for a promotion and leave it at that? You ask your boss because you know that your boss will be able to fulfill your wish. Similarly, if you believe that Jesus, because of his close relationship to God, will be able to fulfill your wish, I find no problem your asking Jesus for a favor. Asking for something is not the same as worshiping. I hope you understand what I am trying to say. A lot of people make a lot of fuss on this topic. But to me it is perfectly OK. 
    • The Saudis have no shame in declaring that they are pro-Israel and anti-Shia: https://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-5047348,00.html   https://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-5047289,00.html
    • Brother, all Muslim women who don't observe Hijab know that it's Wajib. They all know that it's in Quran. Your approach should be changed. When I said be nice to her, I mean be super nice. For example, see what she likes to drink in the morning. Wake up early, GI to kitchen, make a perfect coffee or whatever and go to her room and give it to her. You should try hard. It's a Jihad. You can also peel fruit and give it to her during the day. She should feel that her brother is supportive and trustful first. I know you are good to her now, but for a big change like Hijab observation, you should try harder. When I was back in Iran, I used to do similar things for my mother, and it affects on the person. I made breakfast and gave it to my mum on her bed when she woke up. I didn't do that to ask my mum to do sth, I did that because I love my mum. I realized that women like it. After several months of supporting and being nice, you can gradually start talking about Hijab. That time you can be HOPEFUL to see some small changes in her dress style (maybe wearing long shorts or leggings instead of short ones). Regardless of whatever result you'll get, you did your effort and Jihad. If it's a small change, you should be proud of yourself. 
    • 1. The narrations from Ahl albaayt AS indicate the permission of wearing black clothes in  month of Muharram  for the  mourning for Imam Hussein over the calamities  faced by him 2.  The views of ulema indicate that the black clothes are not permissible while praying. The simple question arises here does it mean that the praying during the month of Muharram with black clothes is Makrooh . haram? Similarly, if the Kaaba is clothed black in all does it mean that all the persons praying there have makrooh  prayers because of black Kaaba? would you please like to clarify? wasalam
    • See this http://holywatcher.narod.ru/iblis.pdf Very dangerous path.  They keep saying that Iblis did not prostrate because he did not want to worship other than Allah. However the Quran, and Iblis' response in the Quran is not so! Iblis says in the Quran that he did not prostrate because Adam a.s. was made of 'mud' ... in essence saying he is higher... or in other terminology known as 'Racism' and Arrogance.  So why and where on earth are these people forcing the image that Iblis acted out of love for God?? Completely absurd.  @Haydar Husayn
