Salamu Alekum.

Plz refer to any hadis where Rasulallah saw have told us to read Ali A-Waliyyallah in our kalima. OR if Imam Ali as. or Imam Hassan as. used to submit it into the Kalima.....

Why are shiane Ahlulbayt then having kalima with Aliun-Wliyyallah??

To be honest \it is because the prophet taught Islam in stages to his people. Believe it or not the first thing taught to them was "la Ila ha" and be blessed. Soon after that he took it to the next level..."La Ila Ha...IllAllah" There is no God but Allah. The next thing of course that he tought them was "La illa ha il Allah, Muhhamed ar rasoolallah" Only on the day when the prophet revealed the last of the Quran to his people. did he then tell them that their religion was complete and that Imam Ali would be his succesor and he also taught them "Ali un Waliyullah. Wasi ar RasoolAllah" But of course The Sunnis had it wiped out. As they also wiped out..."Ashadu annah Ali Ul Amir ul Momineen" from the Azhan as well After all the name of Imam Ali has always terrified the unjust in this world

And if i say only la illaha illalah muahhamadur rasu Allah ...then what difference does it make.Is this not the basis of our religion?And where in the hadiths is it written that these were parts od the kalima or azaan?

It is a theory. And in reply to your question if you are only saying "La Ilaaha Ill Allah. Muhamed Ar Rasool Allah" then you are simply saying half the Kalmah

Even theories are based on something. Quate from an authantic Shia or Sunni book, hadith, statement, history whatever. Show some proof.

but ofcouse these 2 things were never a part of the kalima and azaan.

During Hujjatil widaa3 for Rasul Allah (SAW), in Ghadeer-Khum, Abu Dhar (ra) got up and said the adhan, and in the adhan he said "Ash hadu anna Aliyyan waliullah x2 ". Rasul Allah (SAW) didn't object, so therefore it was accepted during the time of the Rasul (SAW).

As for our kalima, to have the rights of a muslim, you just have to say the first two lines, but in order to be a believer you have to accept the third.

Rasul Allah (SAW) says : Alliyun khairul bashar faman abaa faqad kafar

Salawaat!!!!!!!! :!!!:

salaam walaykum,

ashaduana aliyan waliullah is not a mandatory part of the adhan. Abu Dahr recited it and the prohpet accepted it (as bro abdulhujjah said) therefore its ok to say it. BUT, the Prohpet never said that it is mandatory to say ashanduana aliyan waliullah. Its just optional. When i recite the adhan, i say it, why not?

Adhan and payers are two entities whereas Kalima is not. Kalima is just expression of belief. For a person to become Muslim he/she must have faith in oneness of Allah and prophethood of the Holy Prophet (SAW). He/she can express his/her belief choosing words/language of his own choice and recitation of the words "La ila ha illalah, Muhhamed ur rasulollah is NOT mandatory. However, to become true momin one must have faith in "vilayat" of Ali Ibe Ali Talib (a.s) as without this faith is not complete.

As far as Adhan is concerned Shia marja almost agree that "Ash hadu anna Aliyyan waliullah " is NOT a part of Adhan. However it can be said with intension of "qurbat"

thanks for clearing that out.So this means that the claim by one of the brothers that this part was originally taken out by sunnis was wrong.Knowledge is power.

The first one to say Alis (as) in the shahada is Allah (SWT)....

Imam Ja'afar ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq (as) says:-

When Allah (SWT) create the heavens and the Earth he ordered a munadi (caller) fanaada (he called out):

Ashhadu an la ilaha illa Allah, thrice,

ashhadu anna Muhammadan rasul Allah thrice,

ashhadu anna Aliyyan amir al mu'mineen haqqan thrice.

Bihar al -anwar vol.37 p.295

Is that good enough for the shahada...?

As for the adhaan story about Abu Dhar (ra):

the book is called al-salafat by al sheikh abdullah al maraaghi. I'm yet to find the exact reference.. but it's there so help me out guys, if indeed you are servants of Ali (as).

It is a belief well known and agreed upon that...for one to be a muslim..it is sufficent to say : "La illaha Illul Lah, Mohammad ur Rasul Allah.".

The hadith says: for one to enjoy the rights of a muslim (not to be a muslim)" . Without Abul Hassan (as) your deeds are åóÈóÇÁ ãøóäËõæÑðÇ

I think this is getting ridiculous. I stand by my statement by saying that Ali Un WaliyuLLah MUST be included and that the Adhan is NOT the Adhan without Ashadu Ana Ali Ul AMir Ul Momineen..

How can any muslim honour his prophet then dishonour that sameprophets family? Its madness

Salam o Alekum,

It is not enough to just stand by your statement. What counts is PROOF from authantic books. In which book does it say that the Adhan is NOT the Adhan without Ashadu Ana Ali Ul AMir Ul Momineen..?

Read any Shia book and you will learn that "Ashadu Ana Ali Ul AMir Ul Momineen" is not part of Adhan and is said with the niat of "Qurba".

Most Maraaji3 say it is mustahab and not part of the adhaan and if one has it in his intent that it is part of the adhaan then his adhaan is batil. e.g Sayyid al-Khoei (ra)

One marjaa3 say it has no benefit and no harm, Sayyid Fadhlullah

Some say it is an essential part of the adhaan, and can not be omitted. e.g Sayyid al-shirazi (ra)

Salaam alaikum,

The Scholars apparantly don't agree with you. From what I see, they say it is not part of adhan, but can be added for qurbat. You can't decide something like this for yourself. It's not good to add to Islamic Law, that's innovation and innovation in religion is haraam. You have to be careful about this. Below are a few rulings that I found online.

Imam Khamene'i:

Question 466: What is your esteemed opinion on the third testimony[shahadah] for the master of God's friends, Imam Ali (a), as being the commander[amir] and the leader[wali], in the azan and iqamah of obligatory prayers?

A: It is not a part of the azan or iqamah according to Islamic law, but there will be no problem in it if it is not included with the intention of putting it into, and making it a part of, the azan and iqamah. Rather, this testimony will be preferable if it is included solely for expressing and stressing one's belief regarding the Caliph [successor] of the Holy prophet, may God's blessings be upon him and his infallible inheritors.

Ayatollah Seestani:

928. Ash hadu anna Amiral Mu'minina 'Aliyyan Waliyyullah ( I testify that the Commander of the faithful, Imam Ali (as) is the vicegerent of Allah) is not a part of either Adhan or Iqamah. But it is preferable that it is pronounced after Ash hadu anna Muhammadan Rasulul lah with the niyyat of Qurbat.

Ayatollah Lankarani:

938. Ash hadu anna Amiral Mu’minina Aliyyan Waliyyullah is not a part of either Adhan or Iqamah. But it is preferable that it is pronounced after Ash hadu anna Muhammadan Rasulul lah with the Niyyat of Qurbat.

Question:

As salamu alaykum.

I have a question. Why are we permitted in our prayers to say "ashadunna

aliyyan waliyullah" and why then don't we mention ALL the names of our

masoomen since they are also our representatives?

Answer:

Bismihi Ta'ala

According to the opinion of all our jurists, past and present, affirmation

of the wilayah of Imam Ali (a.s.) is not part of adhan. However, some

jurists have advised us to recite it with the hope that God will be

pleased with that addition and some have recommended its insertion for

thawab.

eg. Agha Khui, in the Articles of Islamic Acts, Article 385, states:

Ash hadu anna Amiral Mu'minina 'aliyan Waliyullah (i.e. I testify

that the commander of the Faithful Imam Ali is the vicegerent of Allah)

is not part of either Azan or Iqamah. It is however better to pronounce

it after -Ash hadu anna Muhammadan Rasulullah- to seek divine pleasure.

Ayat. Fadlullah states: "Ashadu anna Aliyyan waliyy-ul-laah" is not part

of the adhan or the iqamah and it is prohibited for one to regard it as a

legislated part (of the adhan or iqamah). Further, it is not proven that

(the recitation of wilayah) is recommended in them (i.e. the adhan and

iqamah). . . however, it can be recited with the hope of acceptance

without objection and recitation of it does not invalidate the adhan or

iqamah . . ."Al-Masa'il-ul-Fiqhiyya," p. 72.

Shaykh Saduq (d. 381 A.H.) was of the opinion that the statement on the

wilayah of Imam Ali (a.s.) was not part of the original adhan and was

added by the extremist Shi'a known as mufawwidah: "The mufawwidah, may

God curse them, have forged traditions and have inserted additions to the

adhan. Thus, some of them add Muhammad and the house of Muhammad are the

best of creation, twice. And in some of their quotations, after I witness

that Muhammad is the messenger of God, I witness that Ali is the wali of

God, twice. Some of them state, instead of that, I bear witness that Ali

is truly the Commander of the Faithful, twice. There is no doubt that Ali

is the wali of God, that he is truly the Commander of the Faithful and

that Muhammad and his house are the best of creation, but all this is not

in the original adhan. I have mentioned this so that those who are

suspected of tafwid and who with deception include themselves in our

community may be made known." (Shaykh Saduq, "Man la yaduruh al-faqih,

5th edition, Tehran: Dar al-kutub al-Islamiyyah, 1390 A.H., vol. 1, pp.

188-89).

As to why we mention Imam Ali (a.s.) and not the other Imams (a.s.), it is

perhaps because he is the progenitor of all the other Imams (a.s.)

Perhaps a case could be made that mentioning the names of other Imams

would entitle the believer to thawab. However, this is something on which

we would need to consult the jurist.

Thanks sister hajar for providing details of rulings of maraaji on this vital issue. I have a question :

If we recite "Ash hadu anna Amiral Mu'minina 'Aliyyan Waliyyullah" in prayers, will it be okay or prayer will be baatil?

Salam o Alekum,

I dont think "Ash hadu anna Amiral Mu'minina 'Aliyyan Waliyyullah" is said in the actual prayers (Salat). However it is said in Adhan and Aqamah before the prayers with the niat of qurba't.

What is said durung the prayers (salat) is the Salawat i.e. "Allahumma sale ala Mohammad wa alay Mohammad".

There are some groups here who consider "Ash hadu anna Amiral Mu'minina 'Aliyyan Waliyyullah" as a part of Tashahud.

It doesn’t sound logical (does it?) that saying "Aliyyan Waliyyullah" in Adhan and Iqama is advisable whereas the same renders salat null and void. If it is not okay in salat how it can be justifiable in Adhan?

This topic as you may or maynot be aware is a massive issue in Pakistan and slowly creeping everywhere. It is nothing but addition and lack of knowledge . NO marja has said it is WAJIB. Most Marja e Taqleed have all said it is BAATIL. But these people have neither prayed Namaz and neither put any importance in the issue.. Syed Nasrullah speech was brilliant that the SUNNI/SHIA discussions must not be bought on T.V. because it effects Unity and is the problem of Anti-MUslim Propaganda. If we have a disscussion we will iron out our differences together not over the T.V screen.

Saying Salawaat is ample and in this salaawaat every masoom is included. Adding this shadaa in the namaz is nothing but Addition. iT WAS NEVER SAID B4 BY ANY mOLANA I PRAYED BEHIND. I HAVE PRAYED BEHIND LEADERS LIKE SHAHEED ARIF HUSSAINI (MAY HE HAVE A PLACE IN THE HEAVEN)

This addition is not between shia and Sunni but between shia and shia. Can you believe That!!!!

This shia has the guts to call any1 that doesn't say this shadaa as being a MUNAFIQ!!!!!. This person calling the Marja of the world ENEMYs of Hazrayt Ali ( Mash Allah).

I said to him that stop splitting the Shias. Cursing from the MIMBER is not the sunnat of the AHUL Bayt Followers it is the sunnat of the enemys of the ahlulbait. You all know who said that.

The nusharees that believe Hazrat Ali is Allah (N.AB) are cursed by Hazrat Ali that they will be dealt with by me (N.Bal) Yet these people praise him that he was correct.

Bros and Sis's Im sorry if i hurt any1 in my post but i need to say this my goal in life Muslim Unity. I am Shia (12wers and proud to be) but i will not answer accusations made by my brethen just because they want to proof a point.

"Ali is Truth Truth is ALI Let truth follow ALI" hADITH

Thats a first, I've never heard of anyone accepting this, can you give me evidence of this please. :)

Islams laws aren't based upon our logic, but on what Allah (SWT) and his delegates say. In that case it is highly recommended according to most of our maraji3, some say it is part of the adhan. But I'm yet to hear a marja3 making it forbidden... The closest has been Sayyid Fadhlullah, who says it doesn't benefit and it is mubah. So please don't make your own laws lest you transgress Wal 3iyadhu billah

Salaam alaikum,

You can't add new things to salat. Adhan and iqamah are different from salat, the rules are different. Adhan and iqamah are mustahab, but salat is wajib.

Sayid Seestani:

925. It is Mustahab for man and woman to say Adhan and Iqamah before offering daily obligatory prayers, but for other Mustahab or obligatory prayers, they are not prescribed. But before prayers of Eid ul Fitr and Eid ul Adha, it is Mustahab to say "As-Salah" three times, provided that the prayers are going to be offered in congregation.

    • Verdicts & final judgement of whom? Is there a possibility that those verdicts & judgements be wrong? Or you're specifically talking about the verdicts & judgements of "Rasikhoona fil ilm"?
    • if four witnesses accused of stealing, you declared innocence, were innocent, but the witnesses were your enemies, is that a fair judgement?. The judge would not know, as the witnesses looked just like you. This happens around the world daily. Your statement is incorrect, it would not be a fair judgement, it would appear to be one, similar to how western politicians use this same concept to invade nations. It is a fair judgement according to their criteria. But those on the receiving end find it abysmal. The reason why you prefer B&W situations, because your mind prefers order and thus it is too simplistic in nature to consider options as it requires critical thinking. This is general for a majority of human beings, as there are too many variables in all cases including the B&W ones. Hence, if one were to analyse religion, its majority is based around this B&W concept, as order is preferred over disordered, especially in regards to the whole, even if we have collateral damage.
