Shia Sources For The Praise Of The Sahaba (RA)

Recommended Posts

1) Al Majlisee he himself narrated a tradition from at-Toose stating that Ali (May Allah be pleased with him) told his companions:

''I advise you not to tease the companions of the prophet (peace be upon him), because they are the companinos of your prophet (peace be upon him). They are the companions of those who neither introduced any innovation into the faith nor did they honour any innovators. Yes, this is the advice of the prophet (peace be upon him)''.

Reference: Al-Majlisee, Hayyat ul-Quloob (Volume 2, Page 621)

2) Jaa'far the son of Baaqir, sometimes known as 'as-Saadiq,' (truthful):

''The companions of the prophet (peace be upon him) numbered twelve thousand. Eight thousand from Madeenah, two thousand from Makkah and two thousand from Talakas. None of them was a Qadree (a denier of Allah's Qadr), a Marharbee, a Harooree or a Mut'azilee (a deviant sect in islam known for using too much ration and leaving Quran ayats for rational explanations). None of them held an opinion that clashed with the established tenents of the Qur'aan and the Sunnah....they spent their nights weeping and praying, ''Oh Allah take away our lives before we eat bread''.

Reference: Al-Qummee, Kitab ul-Quloob (Volume 2, Page 621)

3) Ali (may Allah bless his soul) also stated:

''Allah has chosen many people from among the Muslims to approve extend the divine mission. Allah and His Messenger have conferred the highest status on the fisrt two Caliphs, Abu Bakr (may Allah bless his soul) and Umar (May Allah be pleased with him). I swear by my own life that they occupy the greatest position in the fold of Islam. May Allah have mercy upon them, for they suffered intensely for the sake of Islam. May Allah compensate them for their sacrifices.

Reference: Ibn ul-Muthim, Sharh Nahj ul Balaghaa (Iraan) Page 488

4) Furhermore, the book Nahj ul Balaghaa which is attributed to Ali (May Allah have mercy on him) contains many sermons in praise of the companions such as Abu Bakr (May Allah be pleased with him) and Umar(May Allah be pleased with him). A further tradition states that when Umar (May Allah be pleased with him) died, Ali (May Allah be pleased with him) asked Allah to bless him and have peace on him saying:

''There is no other person on earth with whose deeds I desire to merge with my deeds, except the man in this coffin (refering to Umar, May Allah be pleased with him )''

Reference: This has been recorded by many Shia scholars:

Sayyid Murtadha in Kitab ush Shaafee, (Page 171)

Aboo Jafar at-Toosee in Talkhees ash Shafee (Iran: Volume 2, Page 428)

Ibn Babwee, Ibn Abee'l-Hadeed and Sudooq in Ma'ani ul Akhbaar (Iran: Page 117)

5) Moreover it is found in another Shia book that Ali (May Allah be pleased with him) said:

''The best men in the community after the Prophet (peace be upon him) is Abu Bakr (May Allah be pleased with him) and Umar (May Allah be pleased with him).''

Reference: Sayyid Murtadha, Kitaab ush Shafee (Volume 2, Page 428).

What is there to answer?

Most of the ahadith up there are about companions in general.

It is your friends who make up lies about Shias hating the companions. (Note: companion is not only resticted to Abu Bakr and Umar as some Sunni like to think).

Nothing contrary to this? :D

I think you're forged copy paste from KCY has been exposed.

Is Baker, Umer, Othman, Muawiya, Hafsa, Ayesha, et al.. the only "Sahaba" you Bakris know and care about?

Yes we disassociate ourselves from the above ^Enemies of Islam^

Shias love the true Sahaba more than any of you Bakris could ever.

As for u Qizil-BASHED, ur words mean nothing cause u have too many conflicting reports on the issue of the sahaba.

Your words have the weight of a turd, as for the Fasiqs who you worship as Sahaba, they can go hell. :squeez:

Youth of Ali, is that the only quote u could answer me on?

What about the other texts?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Now that you are trapped you avoid the issue. Either Baqir Majlisi was against Abu Bakr and Umar or for them. He couldn't be both. So which is it?

This is the Shiite stance on Companions, mr. Abdel Hasan, and it will always be such;

Some people asked Imam al Redha (a) once about the meaning of the traditions "My companions are like the stars, If you follow any of them, you shall recieve guidance", and another one saying "Leave my companions to me" Both of these traditions are considered by Sunnites as the foundation of their generalization of judgement regarding all companions of the Prophet (s) barring None. thus justifying even their acts wich contradicted Islamic justice, calling what they could not justify as "An error in ijtehad". But the Imam (a) provides us with the actual explenation of these and other such Ahadith outlining in an easy manner their exact meaning. In his answer regarding the first tradition, he says "Yes; He did say this hadith" meaning thereby the companions who did not take any alteration after him or any change (to the islamic creed) He was asked; "How can you tell that they altered and changed?" He said "This is due to what is reported about him (The prophet (s)) that he said; "Certain individuals among my companions will be pushed away by force from my pool (Of kawtar) on the day of judgement just as strange camels are pushed away from the watering place, and i shall cry "O Lord! My companions! My companions!" and it shall be said to me [Prophet Mohammad](s); "You do not know what innovations they invented after you" so they will be pushed away towards the left side (Where hell is), and i [Prophet Mohammad] (s) shall say "Away with them; ruined they shall be."

Even if these narrations were found in the books that akidulhassanali mentioned , he forgot that the Shia Books aren't 100% authentic like the Sahih Bukhari :!!!:

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

In other words anything which shows the reality of the Sahaba (ra) in ur books, then u will reject it!

Your foundational beleifs are flawed, as it was these very same people who compiled the Quran which u and I read today. So to say these very same people were not upright will cast doubt directly on the Quran, Nauzubillah. Becasue how can we beleive the Quran is authentic, if it came into the hands of 'unjust' people?

^...precisely....that is where the concept of tahreef comes in shi'a theology the fact that it was Uthman (ra) that compiled the quran and according to the shi'as he is destined for hell (astaghfirullah) .......

and a considerable number of shi'as (not all) do infact believe that some alteration may have occured b/c it is known that Uthman did burn all the other Quran's after he compiled the official version of it, that we use to this day and age.......

and they also believe that Ali(ra) had compiled his version of the Quran that was not made the official version....and i am not sure if all shi'as except this .. but one of my friends believes that the original compilation of Ali (the true one) is w/ the Mehdi....and so one can infer that Islam truly will only come into being after the Mehdi....so...basically we are misguided in this day and age.

heres a shia source for you. and our ulema view these are more authentic than your random quotes:

"While I was worthiest of them all . . ." Ali (as)

He said: Abul Hasan Ali b. Muhammad al-Katib reported to me from al-Hasan b. Ali al-Zafarani, who reported from Abu Ishaq Ibrahim b. Muhammad al-Thaqafi, who reported from al-Masoodi, who reported from al-Hasan b. Hammad, from his father, who reported from Razin Bayya' al-Anmat, who said:

I heard Zaid b. Ali b. Husain, peace be upon him, narrating from his father who reported from his father who said: I heard Amirul Mo'mineen, peace be upon him, addressing the people thus: "By Allah, people gave allegiance to Abu Bakr while I was worthiest of them all, together with the attire of mine. But I swallowed my anger, and waited for my Sustainer's will, keeping my chest low to the ground (i.e. adopting a low profile). Then Abu Bakr died, appointing Umar as his successor, though he knew that I was the worthiest of them all, together with this attire of mine. But I swallowed my anger and waited for my Sustainer's will. Then Umar died and made it an agenda for the consultative committee (al-Shura). He appointed me the sixth among the six members, like the share of the grandmother! And he said: 'Kill the dissenting minority;' and by this he meant no one but me. But I swallowed my fury, waited for my Sustainer's will and kept my chest low on the ground.

Then, the dissenting people did what they did after having sworn allegiance to me; and I had no alternative but either to fight against them or disobey Allah."

And we are the opposite, we say Sahaba were thousands and thousands, read nukhbatul fikar by Ibn Hajar Al Asqalani on the definition of a sahaba from a sunni point of view.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

(salam)

Unlike you, we do not support the hypocrite amongst the companions, and yes, there were many. The special status given to abu bakr and co. has no sound basis at all.

Those idiotic morons at kfc are the only ones who seem to think that the shia do not respect the companions!

    • @eThErEaL Surely the Arabs possessed some virtues before the advent of Prophethood, but we shouldn't fool ourselves into believing that these virtues outstripped their many sins and vices. As Ja'far ibn Abu Talib capably summarized in his address to the King of Abyssinia,  “We were a people of Jahiliyyah, worshipping idols, eating the flesh of dead animals, committing abominations, neglecting our relatives, doing evil to our neighbours and the strong among us would oppress the weak…” Their actions are repudiated time and time again by the Qur'an. "And remember the favor of Allah upon you - when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and you became, by His favor, brothers. And you were on the edge of a pit of the Fire, and He saved you from it." [3:103] “And when the news of a female (child) is brought to any of them, his face becomes dark, and he is filled with inward grief! He hides himself from the people because of the evil of that whereof he has been informed. Shall he keep her with dishonour or bury her in the earth? Certainly, evil is their decision” [al-Nahl 16:58]   Now I don't mean to be racist towards the Arab race, and nor are the practices of the people of jahiliyyah reflective of most Arabs today. But it seems to me that it took the best of the 124,000 prophets to bring the Arabs of that time into line for a handful of years- before they rebelled against his teachings once more as soon as he passed away, all for the greed of power and authority.
    • As a historical source I think it is fair to use. We may not have rijal information on all of the chains; that's partly because our rijal books are mostly focused on hadith narrators of the second hijri century - companions of the mid to late Imams. Abu Mikhnaf himself was not close to the Imams, he was a descendant of a companion of Amir al-Mu'mineen (as), but he is relied upon by Waqidi, Tabari, Shaykh al-Mufid, and other Sunni and Shia historians. It's one of the earliest accounts of the event. He died (d. 157 AH) in the early part of Musa al-Kadhim's Imamate, and his chains to the event are very short. Since his text is about a public event, and Najashi called him a scholar of Kufa in his time, and since he was not criticized until much later Sunni scholars like Dhahabi, I feel that it is a good source. There are some discrepancies, and so it's not holy scripture, but I found it to be very useful when I first converted. Here is a good post on the topic: http://www.shiachat.com/forum/topic/235023655-why-is-abu-mikhnaf-reliable/?do=findComment&comment=2716964
    • I don't quite understand this.  Hypothetically, let's say one's father is against you getting married, so if you attempt to change your wali to a grandfather or an uncle who says yes to the marriage, will it still be illegitimate?  And there are some fathers who won't let them get married no matter what the reason. What then?
