How to prove ismaili belief is false

Recommended Posts

The hadith of the "twelve sucessors or twelve Imams" which is documented in both Sunni and Shia sources is a very good reference to fault the belief of Ismaili. According to this tradition, the numbers of successors/Imams immediately after the Prophet (s.a.w.a) are twelve, no more or less. And Imam Musa Kadhim was the  7th Imam and not the last.

The scholars of sunni hadith all say it's about the sunni caliphs.There are also many versions of the same hadith with different numbers
And hadith isn't history that's for one and Aga khans lineage is documented by multiple sources (not just hadith) but historical sources

How would you refute this

ismaili is the most popular sect in Calgary. I worked with many of them and find them for the most part to be very nice people, with high morals, and flexible enough in their prayer times not to cause their employer any grief. 

What is it they believe that is so wrong?

I believe the tittle is not really respectful. We are all looking for truth regardless of creed or religion.

Besides that we must not forget they are Shia muslims as well.

Most shia scholars I have heard , do not consider them as Muslims.

Not a clue what that means.

 

Sorry no one answered this- in Islam, there are two concepts that are applied when reading scripture: the batin (or esoteric) and the zahir (or exoteric).  So what my brother was saying was that the Isma'ilis are an exoteric school similar to the Alevis. 

I don't know much about either except that I happened to know what batiniyye meant.

Is it what you heard, or did you hear scholars saying Ismailis were not muslims?

There must be some point where Ismailis crossed the line, took up a heresay, left a tradition, refuted a doctrine, something.

My bad- I meant to say the Isma'ilis are an ESOTERIC not exoteric.  For Twelver Shi'i, there is an esoteric concept called Irfan.

Here are seven proofs from the ismailis, detailed. They can be refuted, there are some holes but i am no scholar.

https://ismailignosis.com/2014/10/02/who-succeeded-imam-jafar-al-sadiq-seven-proofs-for-the-imamat-of-imam-ismail-ibn-jafar/

Summary of the Seven Proofs

Below is a summary of the proofs. Please read beyond for the evidence for each, or click on the proof number, to jump directly to a specific proof.

Taken individually or collectively, these Seven Proofs demonstrate that the legitimate successor and true Imam after the Imam Ja‘far al-Sadiq is Mawlānā Ismā‘īl ibn Ja‘far and that the Present and Living Imam of all Shi‘i Muslims must be the direct lineal descendant of Isma‘il ibn Ja‘far. 

Proof #1: Imām Ja‘far designated Mawlānā Ismā‘īl as the next Imam by the rule of nass as per Twelver, Ismaili, Sunni and academic sources.

Proof #2: The only way to deny the nass of Mawlānā Isma‘il is through contradictory hadithspresented in later Twelver hadith books.

Proof #3: Isma‘il’s death before Imam Ja‘far is not confirmed and may have been staged to protect him — as he was reportedly seen by eyewitnesses after his alleged death.

Proof #4: Even if Isma‘il had died before his father, the Imamat continued in Isma‘il’s son, Muhammad ibn Isma‘il, whom Isma‘il had appointed as his own successor.

Proof #5: Earliest Shi‘i hadiths lack the mention of Twelve Imams but instead predict exactly the first eighteen Imams in the Isma‘ili lineage of Imamat.

Proof #6: With the exception of the Nizari Ismaili Imamat, all other Shi‘i Imamat lineages have hidden Imams. This contradicts the Qur’anic definition of Imamat which requires the Imam always be present and manifest (mubin) in the world.

Proof #7: Imam Shah Karim al-Husayni Aga Khan IV is the forty-ninth hereditary Imam of Shi‘i Islam in direct, documented, lineal descent from Mawlana Isma‘il ibn Ja‘far al-Sadiq. As the only present (hadir), manifest (mubin) and living (mawjud) hereditary Imam, with a documented and validated lineage, Imam Shah Karim al-Husayni’s very existence is itself confirmation of his Imamat and that of his ancestors.

I guess this is where our faiths differ in ways. Jesus didn't appoint a successor, thus Christians are not divided on who to follow, 

I was expecting something more along the lines of alternate beliefs, contradicting doctrines, unauthorized practices. Something they do that Shia consider shirk, or haram.

If you research deeper into ismailis, you will find things of stranger nature.

Ismailis are actually more related to us Alevis, as a fellow member mentioned, we read the Qur'an as Zahir and Batinni 

Did you know sunni islam is zoroastrain? Even Hanefi sunni was persian, hence the Zoroastrian practice.

Don't forget Shah Ismail also converted many into 12er and now the converts are calling Alevis and Ismailis kaffir even though they are seyyid and have been taught about the secrets of the universe

Kafir seems to get thrown around a lot before it even leaves the Islamic realm.I asked a fellow here once before about differences, all I knew was that he was different. This was his reply.

I will make it easy for you. Sunnis take Islam from companions and Shia from family of Prophet. Then came four Sunni Imams who taught Laws of Islam. Those who follow them are called Muqalid and wahabi ghair muqalid,they only follow Quran and Hadith.I am a Hanfi Muqulid and against the wahabis.In India,Hanfis were further divided into deobandis(shia haters)and barelvis(more tolerant and tomb worshippers of saints).

I am a deobandi but shia consider them as a wahabi and hate them.Deobandi hate barelvis. Both wahabi and deobandis hate shia and consider them kafirs. Barelvis love shias but hate wahabis and deobandis,Sound confusing right?And now you know why Muslims will blow each other up.,

I wish I could curse Muslims like you do Christians and not get banned from the shiachat.One thing Islam must learn from Christianity, how to tolerate criticism and coexist with others.

 

 

This did not make it easy on me. Same Quran, right? Same Pillars?

* I didn't curse anyone, just put a put a fellow in his place.

Nothing serious, unless you're really sensitive.

Well their beliefs are similar, I have to explain it in Turkish though.

Did you know Hanefi was Persian?

Shah Ismail was the great leader of Aq Koyunlar, seyyid and Turkmen. 

He was the leader of iran/Azerbaijan.

Here is a Turkish professor explaining IrIr and how "namaz"  comes from Zoroastrian

I will try to translate later

That reply was a joke, seriously. The guy is a shia hating deobandi but wishes to curse muslims while learning tolerance from christians.

That does not make any sense.

I didn't say it made sense. Certainly not to me. I don't know half the groups he's talking about, but I don't think he meant it as a joke. Matter of fact, nothing he ever said was a joke. He was a troubled Deobandi because he didn't hate anybody as much as he was supposed to. Somebody with attitude finally made him pop and he got banned.

Abdallah b. al-Hasan b. al-Hasan al-Mujtaba al-Nafs al-Zakiyya https://sites.google.com/site/mujamalahadith/vol1/book-of-narrators/muhammad-b-abdallah-b-al-hasan-b-al-hasan-al-mujtaba-al-nafs-al-zakiyya   [-/1] بـصـائـر الـدرجـات: عبدالله بن جعفر ، عن محمد بن عيسى ، عن صفوان ، عن العيص ، عن أبي عبدالله عليه السلام قال: ما من بني ولا وصي ولا ملك إلا في كتاب عندي ، لا والله ما لمحمد بن عبدالله بن الحسن فيه اسم [1/-] Basair al-Darajat: Abdallah b. Ja’far from Muhammad b. Isa from Safwan from al-Iys [b. al-Qasim] from Abi Abdillah عليه السلام who said: there is not a prophet or a successor or a king except that he is found in a book which is with me. No by Allah! the name of Muhammad b. Abdallah b. al-Hasan is not there. NOTES: This is one of the great signs of the Imama of al-Sadiq for he prophesied that the revolt of Muhammad b. Abdallah b. al-Hasan [a descendant of Imam al-Hasan] would end in failure and that this pretender who claimed to be the Mahdi would be put to death by the Abbasid Caliph al-Mansur. The Imam repeated this prediction a number times and did so many years before the actual occurrence, most prominently at the meeting of the Hashimis at Abwa. This became widely known from him, such that even Sunni authorities like Ibn Khaldun in his Muqadimma and al-Dhahabi in his Siyar make a mention of it. al-Muhsini: Perhaps what is meant by ‘kings’ are those up to the time of the ‘Aimma. To have the names of all kings from the beginning of creation to the end of the world, over all countries and for all time, would require several volumes, how large would this book be in size? In any case, al-Muhsini does not accept the reliability of this particular narrations because of his doubts about Basair as a source.
    • Bruv. Costs an arm and a leg (means it costs a lot of money)  
    • Salaam Alaykum Inshaallah on your effort. Allah put you on the right path. Be grateful for that. About your question, yes you need to pray and fast for those days, but don't worry. It's not that much hard. For example, I do one day Qadha pray everyday, so after two years and half from now I'll be done with Qadha prays. You can also come up with a program for Qadha fasts as well. Here are two posts for Qadha prays and fasts:   Keep going brother
    • Brother, offer thanks to Allah & instead of inventing questions like these, ask Him to grant you the steadfastness on deen.  Surah Al-Maeda, Verse 54:
      يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مَن يَرْتَدَّ مِنكُمْ عَن دِينِهِ فَسَوْفَ يَأْتِي اللَّهُ بِقَوْمٍ يُحِبُّهُمْ وَيُحِبُّونَهُ أَذِلَّةٍ عَلَى الْمُؤْمِنِينَ أَعِزَّةٍ عَلَى الْكَافِرِينَ يُجَاهِدُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ وَلَا يَخَافُونَ لَوْمَةَ لَائِمٍ ذَٰلِكَ فَضْلُ اللَّهِ يُؤْتِيهِ مَن يَشَاءُ وَاللَّهُ وَاسِعٌ عَلِيمٌ O you who believe! whoever from among you turns back from his religion, then Allah will bring a people, He shall love them and they shall love Him, lowly before the believers, mighty against the unbelievers, they shall strive hard in Allah's way and shall not fear the censure of any censurer; this is Allah's Face, He gives it to whom He pleases, and Allah is Ample-giving, Knowing.
      (English - Shakir) Surah Muhammad, Verse 25:
      إِنَّ الَّذِينَ ارْتَدُّوا عَلَىٰ أَدْبَارِهِم مِّن بَعْدِ مَا تَبَيَّنَ لَهُمُ الْهُدَى الشَّيْطَانُ سَوَّلَ لَهُمْ وَأَمْلَىٰ لَهُمْ Surely (as for) those who return on their backs after that guidance has become manifest to them, the Shaitan has made it a light matter to them; and He gives them respite.
      (English - Shakir) Try to take benifits from the blessed nights like shab e qadr, shab e bara'at, last friday night & day of Ramadhan. They will makeup your account & removes your burden In-sha Allah. And no, its not too late. A true & sincere repentence is all what one need for his success before death approaches him. Just try to offer obligatory prayers with sunnah & salat al layl regularly from now onwards. And try to use the blessed nights. Dont worry, put your trust on Allah. He is the Most Merciful. Learning is a continuous process which never ends. We even learn something from our own death. You're Alhamdolillah alive, start your journey with prayer "Rabbi zidni ilma". 
    • Great quotation from the FT today.  https://www.ft.com/content/f1d5571c-d119-11e7-b781-794ce08b24dc Note how: 1. an undemocratic putsch is now defined as being 'popularly backed' making a weak attempt at legitimising it 2. the previous democratically elected government is now disparaged by simply being labelled Islamist. Black is white and white is black.
