  1. From the Messenger of Allah (saw), he said: "The Imams after me are twelve. The first one is 'Ali b. Abi Taleb (as) and the last of them is the Qa'im (as). The one who seeks nearness to them is a believer. And the one who rejects them is a disbeliever". [Kamal Aldeen, Hadith 4, Page 248] https://ia801708.us.archive.org/18/items/348783478349/kmal-aldin.pdf
  2. I understand the point that you're trying to reach but there is also a greater context to this. One of the meanings of the word Sunnah in Arabic is 'teachings' and in the context of the aforementioned Hadith, it is the teachings of RasulAllah (saw), so the Hadiths are not entirely mutually exclusive or conflict with each other. Malik's report is not absolutely weak and I believe its more appropriate to rather say that the issue with it is that its vague or generic since it could be interpreted to mean that the "Sunnah" of the Prophet (saw) can be taken from anyone who met him, like Abu Hurayra or Malik b. Anas and other individuals whom are not recognized by Imamis, and not restricting it to the Ahlulbayt (as). The Prophet (saw) ordered the Muslims to follow the Ahlulbayt (as) because they are the most authentic source to reach his Sunnah.
  3. Simply because loving the Ahlulbayt (as) out of words without absolutely following their teachings does not suffice in obeying the orders of the Prophet (saw). Both the Sunni and Imami school fundamentally believe that the Prophet (saw) before his demise ordered the Muslims to follow the Quran and his Sunnah, and that one will not separate from the other until the final hour, and we believe that the only gateway to the Sunnah is via the Ahlulbayt. The Ahlulbayt from all of the Sahabah, Tabi'in and Atba' at-Tabi'in are the only ones qualified to hold an authoritative position in teaching the Prophet's Sunnah to the Muslims and they hold this unique position based on their superiority in virtues, knowledge and piety as shown in this thread.
  4. A man came to Imam 'Ali b. Musa al-Redha ع and asked him, "Is your God able to fit the heavens and the earth and everything within them inside an egg?" Imam al-Redha answered him: Yes, and smaller than an egg, he fitted them inside your pupil. Because when you open your eyes, they are encompassing the heavens, the earth and everything in them, and if he wished he would have blinded you from seeing them as well. [at-Tawheed] جاء رجل إلى الرضا عليه السلام فقال: هل يقدر ربك أن يجعل السماوات والأرض وما بينهما في بيضة؟ قال:نعم، وفي أصغر من البيضة، قد جعلها في عينك وهي أقل من البيضة، لأنك إذ افتحتها عاينت السماء والأرض وما بينهما، ولو شاء لأعماك عنها
  5. يخويه تنادي ولا لك امعين وقومك على الغيره مطاعين أنا منين اجيب المرتضى منين عن كربلا بويه غبت وين تدري بأميّه تطلب بدين يطلبون ثار ابدّر وحنين هجموا فرد هجمة على حسين
  6. I shall go towards death, and there is no shame for a man in death, as long as his intentions are based on truth and he struggles as a Muslim. There is no shame in death for the valiant, as long as they support the righteous, fight the criminals and abandon the tyrants. Thus, if I live, I shall not have any regrets, and if I am slain, I will not be blamed. Nothing is more humiliating than living under the humiliation of oppressors  - Sayed ash-Shuhada (as)

  7. I humbly ask that you pray by the right of Sayed al-Shuhada (pbuh) for me and my father who was recently laid off from work to find secure employment despite the current depressing state of the economy.
  8. MUHSIN KHAN - Say: "Allah knows best how long they stayed. With Him is (the knowledge of) the unseen of the heavens and the earth. How clearly He sees, and hears (everything)! They have no Wali (Helper, Disposer of affairs, Protector, etc.) other than Him, and He makes none to share in His Decision and His Rule." [al-Kahf: 26] Allah's divine rule encompasses the authority of his Hujjaj on earth, whether it's the authority of the prophets or their successors (Khulafah). This includes the Khalifate of prophet Muhammad (saw) because based on Ahadith and Ayah 59 of Surat an-Nisa, the successor of the prophet is the Hujjah of Allah on earth and we must obey him just as we must obey the prophet and Allah. He inherits the authority of the prophet and acts as the representative of Allah on earth and judges only based on what Allah orders him and not via his fallible Ijtihad. This can only be an infallible person like the Prophet whom Allah Himself appoints on His behalf to govern the affairs of the people of his time.
  9. Close 1) Muhammad b. Abi Bakr (rah) died while he was in Egypt when the army of 'Amr b. 'As invaded it, not as he was traveling to it. Malik al-Ashtar (rah) died on the way there after being ordered by Amir al-Mu'mineen (as) to become the governor of Egypt instead Muhammad, as he saw him to be more fit to oppose Muawiyia's invading army but he was eventually poisoned by one of Muawyia's soldiers during his journey. 2) As king said. For anyone who is interested in a detailed answer you can read the following: Except the face of Allah everything will get destroyed. (Surah Qasas 28:88) Most commentators have said that ‘face’ means the self of Allah and everything would be destroyed before the day of Judgement and then created again. Some have said that it means the religion of Allah and His worship. Ibne Babawayh in Tawheed has narrated from Ibne Khusaima that I asked Imam Sadiq (a.s.) about its explanation and he replied: The face of Allah is the religion of Allah and the Holy Prophet (S) and Amirul Momineen (a.s.) were the religion of Allah and creatures of Allah they were the eyes of Allah who used to see their action by the light of Allah and they were the tongue of Allah, as Allah used to converse through them. And these gentlemen used to convey the knowledge of Allah to His creatures. https://www.al-islam.org/hayat-al-qulub-vol3-allamah-muhammad-baqir-al-majlisi/part-39-side-Allah-face-Allah-and-hands-Allah 3) Correct. The Meccans had no previous knowledge of those stories about the Prophet's prophecy that the Jews in Medina had knowledge of.
  10. 1) A close companion of Amir al-Mu'mineen (as). He played a significant role in the revolution against 'Uthman b. 'Affan, was appointed by Amir al-Mu'mineen (as) as commander of his army during the battle of Jamal, and was eventually poisoned by one of the supporters of Mua'wiyia on his way to Egypt. Who is this companion? 2) What is the meaning of Wajh (the face) when referred to Allah as mentioned in Ayah 27 of Surat ar-Rahman and other Ayat in the Quran, according to the exegesis of the Ahlulbayt (as)? 3) What was the main factor that persuaded the Aws and the Khazraj tribes of Medina to believe in the prophecy of Muhammad (saw) and accept him as their first leader to unite them after centuries of feud between them, all before they even met and saw the Prophet and despite the Mushrikeen of Mecca living for 10 years around him and yet still refused to accept Islam?
  11. 1) Mina? 2) Abu Sufyan 3) I always thought that Musailamah was only killed by Wahshi b. Harb when Wahshi threw his spear at him. I don't know about another member also playing a role in killing him. 4) Between 7 and 8 years old 5) al-Ma'mun?
  12. وآتيناه الحكم صبيا

  13. This is a nice thread, lets keep it going. 1) The famous phrase of Ask me before you lose me was known to be attributed to Amir al-Mu’mineen (as) and he was the only companion to say it to those around him. Other than Amir al-Mu’mineen, history books testify that there was another Imam (as) who also used to call out with this phrase publicly to those around him. Which Imam was it? 2) There was one companion who lived long enough to accompany not only the Prophet (saw), but also Amir al-Mu’mineen (as), Zayn al-‘Abdineen (as), al-Baqir (as) and al-Sadiq (as). Also, this same companion was told by the Prophet to send his Salam to Imam al-Baqir when he eventually meets him. Who was this companion? 3) During the event of Mubahala, a child from the children of Sayeda Fatima (as) and Amir al-Mu’mineen (as) was left behind. Who was it?
  14. Not entirely sure but I'll give this a shot. 1) Halimah b. Abi Dhulayb 2) I believe only 2 3) Not sure. Probably one of leaders of the Aws and the Khazraj tribes? 4) The location of Masjid al-Nabawi 5) ^ The batchild answered this one
  15. From Abu Bakr, from Wakee’ from al-A’mash from Sahl b. al-Aswad from Bakeer al-Jizry from Anas b. Malik, he said: One day the Messenger of Allah (saw) came to us while we were at a house of an Ansari and he held the hand of the door and said, “The Imams (al-A’immah) are from Quraysh”. [Kitab al-Sunnah, Ibn Abi ‘Assem, page 531] Grading: Saheeh (Authentic) Narrated Muhammad b. ‘Awf from Abu Saleh from Mu’awiyia b. Saleh from Abi Mas’ood, he said: And upon you is my Sunnah (teachings) and the Sunnah of the rightly guided Caliphs, bite upon it with your jaws. [Kitab al-Sunnah, Ibn Abi ‘Assem, page 30] Grading: Saheeh (Authentic) From Abi Thabet, the servant of Abi Dhar, he said: I was with ‘Ali (as) during the battle of Jamal and when I saw ‘Aisha standing, a feeling entered inside me that has not entered other people and then I felt as if Allah has taken it away from me after I prayed Dhur where it then made me fight along with Amir al-Mu’mineen. When the battle was over, I traveled to al-Madina and stopped by Om Salamah. I said to here, “By Allah, I am not here to acquire food and beverages but I am the servant of Abu Dhar”. She said: Welcome. Then I told her my story and she said: Where were you when the hearts flew away? I said to here: During that day when the sun …(..?). She said: Good on you. I once heard the Messenger of Allah (saw) say, “ ’Ali is with the Quran and the Quran is with ‘Ali. They will never separate until they reach me at the lake-fount”. [al-Mustadrak ‘Ala al-Sahihayn, al-Hakim al-Nisaburi, Volume 3, page 134, Hadeeth 4628] Grading: al-Hakim said, “This Hadeeth’s chain is Saheeh (authentic) and they (Bukhari and Muslim) did not include it. Al-Dhahabi adds in at-Talkhees by saying, “Saheeh (Authentic)”. Muhammad b. al-Muthana from Yahya b. Hamad from Abi ‘Awannah from Yahya b. Saleem Abi Balj from ‘Amro b.Maymoon from Ibn ‘Abbas, he said: The Messenger of Allah (saw) said to ‘Ali, “You are to me as Harun was to Musa except that you are not a prophet and that you are my successor over the believers after me. [Kitab al-Sunnah, Ibn Abi ‘Assem, page 565] Grading: Isnad Hasan (Good chain) Narrated Abu al-Nadhr Muhammad b. Yusef from ‘Uthman b. Sa’id from al-Nafayli from Zuhayr from Abu Ishaq. And through a different chain: ‘Uthman narrated from ‘Ali b. Hakim and ‘Amro b. ‘Own al-Wasity from Shareek from Abi Ishaq, he said: I asked Quthm b. al-‘Abbas on how ‘Ali inherited from the Messenger of Allah while others did not. He said: Because he was the first among us to follow the Prophet and the strongest to stick to him. [al-Mustadrak ‘Ala al-Sahihayn, al-Hakim al-Nisaburi, volume 3, page 138, Hadeeth 4633] Grading: Al-Hakim said, “This Hadeeth’s chain is authentic and they (Bukhari and Muslim) did not include it. Al-Dhahabi adds in at-Talkhees by saying, “Saheeh (Authentic)”. Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas (ra), he said, the Messenger of Allah (saw) said: The best of the women of paradise are Khadija b. Khuwayld, Fatima b. Muhammad, Maryam b. ‘Imran and Asia b. Mazahem; the wife of Pharaoh.

Then as I followed him as he was exiting, he said, “An Angel was brought to me to bring me peace and glad tidings, and to inform me that al-Hassan and al-Hussain are the masters of the youth of paradise and that Fatima is the mistress of paradise”. [Tadheeb al-Khasa’is, Jalaladin al-Sayooti, page 444] Grading: Isnad Saheeh (Authentic chain) Narrated to us Wakee’ from Shareek from Abi Ishaq from Abu Hurayra, he said: One day, a sermon was given to us by al-Hassan b. ‘Ali and he said, “Verily a man has left you yesterday who none from the past surpassed him in knowledge and neither will those who come after him surpass him. The Messenger of Allah (saw) used to send him during a battle with his banner while Jibrael was on his right side and Mikeal on his left side, and he did not return until he became victorious. [Musanad Ahmed b. Hanbal, Volume 19, page 246] Grading: Hasan (Good) Abu Bakr b. Abi Shaybah: Narrated to us Muhammad b. Bashir, from 'UbaydAllah b. 'Umar, narrated to us Zayd b. Aslam from his father Aslam (servant of 'Umar b. al-Khattab), he said: When the pledge of allegiance was given to Abu Bakr after the demise of Allah's messenger, 'Ali and Zubayr used to arrange meetings at Fatima's house and they used to secretly discuss with her until they leave and go back to their ordinary daily tasks. When 'Umar b. al-Khattab was informed of this, he left to Fatima and said to her, "O daughter or Allah's messenger. There is no one more beloved to me than your father and no one more beloved to me after him than you. But by Allah, if these people arranged in your house again, I swear that I will order for the house to be burned on them!". Aslam said: When 'Umar left, they came to her and she said to them, "Did you know that 'Umar came to me today and he sworn by Allah that if you returned to host those meetings, he will burn the house upon you?". So she told them not to host another meeting and they did not return until they gave the pledge of allegiance to Abu Bakr.

Al-Dhahabi adds in at-Talkhees by saying, “Saheeh (Authentic)”. Narrated Ibn ‘Uyanah from al-Zuhri, he said: I have not seen a Quray[Edited Out]e better than ‘Ali b. al-Hussain.

Muhammad from his father”, or “Suhuel from al-Baqir”, or “the scholars from al-Baqir”. Abu Hatim said: Ja’far should not be compared to any of those. And he also said: No one should question if there is anyone like Ja’far. [Seyar A’lam al-Nubala, al-Dhahabi, section Ja’far b. Muhammad al-Sadiq] Al-Khatib al-Baghdady said: Narrated to us Abu al-‘Ala’ al-Wasity from ‘Umar b. Shaheen from al-Hussain b. al-Qasim from Ahmed b. Wahab from ‘Abd al-Rahman b.

Then Musa (as) came and said, “Peace be upon you, O father”. Then Harun’s face changed and he said, “Verily this is the true pride, O Aba al-Hassan”.

Musa al-Redha in Nisapur and he recited the “Bismillah” loudly in every Surah. [Seyar A’lam al-Nubala, al-Dhahabi, section ‘Ali b. Musa al-Redha] Al-Fakhr al-Razi said in his Tafsir of Surat al-Kawthar: The third saying on the meaning of al-Kawther is the descendants of the Prophet. And the meaning of it is that Allah will give him offspring that will remain until the last hour. Look at how many from the Ahlulbayt have been killed, yet the world is filled with them and at the same, look at how no none from Banu Ummayah remains in this Dunya. Also, look at how among his Ahlulbayt there were as major scholars, such as al-Baqir, al-Sadiq, al-Kadhim and al-Redha. [Tafsir al-Razi] Abu al-Fada (d. 648 AH) in his Tarikh said: And in this year, 254 AH, ‘Ali al-Hadi passed away and he is an Imam from the twelve Imams belonging to the Imammiyia. He is ‘Ali the son of Muhammad al-Jawad, who was mentioned earlier to have passed away in the year 220 AH. And as for ‘Ali, a notice was sent to al-Mutawakel informing him that he is hiding weapons and books., so al-Mutawakel sent a group of men and they raided his house during the night by surprise. When they arrived, they found him in a closed house while he was facing the Qibla, reciting the Ayat from the Quran and there was nothing between him and the earth except for sand and rocks.

[Seyar ‘Alam al-Nubala’ by al-Dhahabi, section 'Abdillah b. Muhammad b. 'Uqayl] Grading: Dhahabi said, “This Hadeeth is Hasan (Good) at the highest level Narrated by Al-Aswad In the presence of ‘Aisha some people mentioned that the Prophet had appointed ‘Ali by will as his successor. ‘Aisha said, “When did he appoint him by will? Verily when he died he was resting against my chest (or said: in my lap) and he asked for a wash- basin and then collapsed while in that state, and I could not even perceive that he had died, so when did he appoint him by will?”. [Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 51, Number 4] Narrated ‘UbaydAllah b. Ghanam from Abu Bakr b. Abi Shaybah. And from al-Hussain b. Ishaq al-Tastari from ‘Uthman b. Abi Shaybah from Shareek from Hansh b. al-Harith from Rayah b. al-Harith, he said: One day we were sitting with ‘Ali in the court yard of the Masjid when a man that had signs of traveling on him came and said, “Peace be upon you, my master (Mawlie).” A group of people said, “Who is this?”. Some one said, “Abu Ayyoub al-Ansari”. Abu Ayyoub al-Ansari (ra) then said: I once heard the Messenger of Allah (saw) say, “whomever I am his Mawla (master), then ‘Ali is his master. O Allah, support those who support him and oppose those who oppose him.” [al-Mu’jam al-Kabeer, al-Tabarani, volume 4, Hadeeth 4052, pages 173-174] Grading: The editor comments that this Hadeeth is in Musnad Ahmed and the chain of Ahmed has trustworthy narrators. The same report in the same book with two different chains transmitted from Shareek until Rayah b. al-Harith: Narrated Muhammad b. ‘Abdillah al-Hadhrami from ‘Ali b.Hakeem al- Awadi from Shareek from Hansh b. al-Harith from al-Hassan b. al-Hakam b. Rayah b. al- Hareth... And narrated al-Hussain b. Ishaq from Yahya al-Hamani from Shareek from al-Hassan b. al- Hakam from Rayah b. Harith al-Nakha’i, he said: One day we were sitting with ‘Ali when a group of riders from the Ansar that wore turbans came to us. They then said: Peace be upon you, our master (Mawlana). ‘Ali (as) answered them: I am your master (mawlakom) and you are people among the Arabs. They said: Indeed. We heard the Prophet (saw) say, “Whoever I am his master (Mawla), then ‘Ali is his master. O Allah, support those who support him and oppose those who oppose him”. And this man right here is Abu Ayyoub among us [bearing witness].” Then Abu Ayyoub uncovered his face and said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (saw) say, “Whoever I am his master, then ‘Ali is his master. O Allah, support those who support him and oppose those who oppose him”. It has been narrated on the authority of Jabir b. Samura who said: I joined the company of the Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) with my father and I heard him say: This Caliphate will not end until there have been twelve Caliphs among them. The narrator said: Then he (the Prophet) said something that I could not follow. I said to my father: What did he say? He said: He has said: All of them will be from the Quraish. [Sahih Muslim, Hadith 4478] It has been narrated on the authority of 'Abdullah that the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: The Caliphate will remain among the Quraish even if only two persons are left (on the earth). [Sahih Muslim, Hadith, 4477] It has been reported on the authority of Jabir b. Samura who said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) say: The affairs of the people will continue to be conducted as long as they are governed by twelve men. Then the Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said words which were obscure to me. I asked my father: What did the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) say? He said: All of the (twelve men) will be from the Quraish. [Sahih Muslim, Hadith 4479] It has been narrated on the authority of Jabir b. Samura who said: I heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) say: Islam will continue to be triumphant until there have been twelve Caliphs. Then the Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said something which I could not understand. I asked my father: What did he say? He said: He has said that all of them (twelve Caliphs) will be from the Quraish. [Sahih Muslim, Hadith, 4481] It has been narrated on the authority of Jabir b. Samura that the Prophet (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said: This order will continue to be dominant until there have been twelve Caliphs. The narrator says: Then he said something which I could not understand, and I said to my father: What did he say? My father told me that he said that all of them (Caliphs) would be from the Quraish. [Sahih Muslim, Hadith 4482] It has been reported on the authority of Jabir b. Samura who said: I went with my father to the Messenger of Allaah (may peeace be upon him) and I heard him say: This religion would continue to remain powerful and dominant until there have been twelve Caliphs. Then he added something which I couldn't catch on account of the noise of the people. I asked my father: What did he say? My father said: He has said that all of them will be from the Quraish. [Sahih Muslim, Hadith 4483]
