    • For us, the Qur'an and the sunnah are the reference. If the prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) says I leave behind the Quran and the Ahlulbayt, then we follow them, we don't ask why there isn't a surah about it or why Imam Ali (عليه السلام) didn't write it in a letter.

      Curiously the salah and all its details from sunnah. The question is when did Ali ra say it HIMSELF!!! I’ve realised this question as well as any evidence of clear divine Imamate from Quran is a never straight forward answereable question instead look at the reply by a brother above……..instead of using the Quran as criterion he uses an ambiguous hadith and is trying his best to correlate it with a Quranic verse. This is why our shia brothers have a hard time debating a Sunni. Honestly you need to overcome this if you are gonna stand up to answering questions relating to divine leadership.  
    • Salaam, As brother @Mahdavist mentionned, the sermon of Shiqshiqiyyah clearly shows that Imam Ali (عليه السلام) said that : "my position in relation to it (the caliphate) was the same as the position of the axis in relation to the hand-mill." and "I watched the plundering of my inheritance till the first one went his way but handed over the Caliphate to Ibn al-Khattab after himself." Also in sermon 172 (during the Consultative Committee, after the death of the 2nd caliph) he says:  Someone said to me, "O' son of Abi Talib, you are eager for the caliphate." Then I told him: "Rather, you are, by Allah, more greedy, although more remote, while I am more suited as well as nearer. I have demanded it as my right, while you are intervening between me and it, and you are turning my face from it." That's curious, I also don't see any explicit Qur'anic verse where the numbers of rak'as are mentionned, yet it's universally accepted that it's 2, 4, 4, 3 and 4. I wonder where we got those numbers from... Oh, that's right, from the hadiths ! Likewise, the hadiths tell us that certain Qur'anic verses state the Imam Ali (عليه السلام) should be obeyed, and the famous verse: الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَ‌ضِيتُ لَكُمُ الْإِسْلَامَ دِينًا is a reference to Ghadeer, where the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) announced that Imam Ali (عليه السلام) was the mawla of every Muslim, so every Muslim should obey him after the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) passes away.

      I hope with time I'll get used to it and it will feel normal to me. I do like the result, but something is holding me back from liking it. I hope this feeling will also resolve over time. 
    • I have been heard some people use this argument against Islam where they say the Qur’an is supposed to be the final guide for all of humanity and yet it contains many redundant details that shouldn’t be in “the final guide for all of humanity”. Some verses they claim are useless include: [33:53] O you who believe! do not enter the houses of the Prophet unless permission is given to you for a meal, not waiting for its cooking being finished-- but when you are invited, enter, and when you have taken the food, then disperse-- not seeking to listen to talk; surely this gives the Prophet trouble, but he forbears from you, and Allah does not forbear from the truth And when you ask of them any goods, ask of them from behind a curtain; this is purer for your hearts and (for) their hearts; and it does not behove you that you should give trouble to the Messenger of Allah, nor that you should marry his wives after him ever; surely this is grievous in the sight of Allah. The verse where the Qur’an “could have said” that marrying your adopted son’s wife is halal instead of ordaining the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) to actually marry Zaid’s wife: [33:37] And when you said to him to whom Allah had shown favor and to whom you had shown a favor: Keep your wife to yourself and be careful of (your duty to) Allah; and you concealed in your soul what Allah would bring to light, and you feared men, and Allah had a greater right that you should fear Him. But when Zaid had accomplished his want of her, We gave her to you as a wife, so that there should be no difficulty for the believers in respect of the wives of their adopted sons, when they have accomplished their want of them; and Allah's command shall be performed. This verse in Surah Tahrim talking about either the “honey incident” (mentioned in Tafsir Pooya) or the “maria al qibtiyyah” incident in which the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) is said to have been with his wife Maria while Hafsa was gone out, for her to return and be mad that he did this “on my day and only my bed!”, and him to take an oath that he shall never sleep with Maria again. [66:1] O Prophet! why do you forbid (yourself) that which Allah has made lawful for you; you seek to please your wives; and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. Also details of who the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) can and cannot marry from 33:50-52.   Essentially the argument being made is that these verses are useless. Of course, as Muslims we believe that every letter is meaningful within the Qur’an, and so I was after some guidance on how to respond to such claims, especially with regard to the above verses I have quoted.   Barakallah Fik
