    I think it is harmful to let these psuedo scholars to be very popular to the limit that we need such announcemnt for the whole shia community. It hurts the image of the religious institution, religion men, religion teachings and the high religion figures (Imams and prophets).

    14. Sayyid Jamaluddin Husaini Muhaddith who is the author of the celebrated book "Rawdhat al-Ahbab". According to Dayar Bakri, Mulla Ali Qari, Abdul Haqq Dehlawi, "Rawdhat al-Ahbab" is one of the reliable sources of reference. The author mentions the twelfth Imam in the most reverential terms. He states:

    The auspicious birth of the pearl of the Vicegerency and the precious form of the mine of guidance took place on the 15th of Sha'ban in the year of 225 AH at Samarra. He has described the Imam in the following words:

    19. Mulla Ali Qari, one of the greatest traditionists, in his famous book, "Mirqat", talks about Imam al-Mahdi after mentioning the celebrated statement of the Holy Prophet (PBUH&HF) that after him there would be twelve successors (Caliphs).

    20. Kazi Jawad Sibti was a Christian but later became a Muslim. He wrote "Baraheen Sibtiyya" (Proofs forwarded by Sibti), which is a refutation of the Christian writers. He narrates the Prophecy from Ashaya (Joshua) concerning the coming of a man from the chosen branch of the chosen lineage of Adam who would be the seat of the spirit. In other words, he will be filled with the spirit of wisdom, sympathy, justice and knowledge and he will be God fearing. God will bestow on him a sound and glorying reason and make him firm. His judgment would be based on hearing an external evidence, but he will have a guided insight about everything and judge people according to what they really are in their hearts. He further states that his method of judgment is peculiar to him and has not been adopted by any prophet or Vice-regent of God. The Muslims are unanimous that the Mahdi of this description shall be descendant of Fatimah, daughter of the holy Prophet (PBUH&HF). Particularly the view of the Shia seems to be real interpretation of this real prophecy.

    23. Shaikh Sadruddin, known as Hamavi, who has written a book about the Last Imam of the House of the Prophet (PBUH&HF). He quotes a tradition of the Holy Prophet (PBUH&HF) as follows

    Prophet (PBUH&HF) said: "The learned one among my followers are in the rank of the Prophets from among the Children of Israel", also referring to the twelve Naqeeb (chiefs)of the Children of Israel (see Quran 5:12). But the last Wali, who is the last of the successors of the Prophet (PBUH&HF) and who is the Twelfth Wali in the chain of Awliaa, is al-Mahdi, "Sahib al-Zaman", his appellation and title should not be used for any one else.
    24. Shaikh Ahmad Jami, (as quoted by Qundoozi, author of "Yanabi al- Mawaddah", and Qadhi Noorullah author of "Majalis al-Mu'mineen") has composed the following poem:
    My heart is fine and bright with the love of Haydar
    Next to Haydar, al-Hasan is our Guide and Leader.
    The dust beneath the Shoes of al-Husain
    is the eyeliner (surmah) for my eyes.
    al-Abideen, the ornament of all devotees
    is like a crown on my head.
    al-Baqir is the light of both my eyes.
    The religion of Ja'far is true and the path of Musa is right.
    O, loyal, ones: listen to me praising the King of Kings (al-Ridha)
    who is buried in Khurasan.
    A particle from the dust of his tomb is the cure of all pains
    Leader of men of faith is al-Taqi, O dear Muslims
    If you love al-Naqi in preference to all other people,
    you have done the thing which is proper and right.
    al-Askari is the light of the eyes of both Adam and the world.
    Where can be found, in the world,
    such a chief in command like al-Mahdi?
    25. Shaikh Amir Ibn Basri has composed an eulogy called Qasidah Tayya. The composition contains theosophical lore, maxims, mystical points, and matter of etiquette. Here are some lines quoted:
    O' Imam al-Mahdi! How long will You be hidden?
    Oblige us, O' our father, with your return!
    We feel sad the waiting time is prolonged.
    For the sake of Thy Lord, bless us with your audience.
    O the pole of being! Hasten, O our beloved!
    Return, so that we may enjoy the sight.
    Surely, it is a great a pleasure
    for a lover to meet his beloved after a long absence.
    26. Husain Ibn Hamdan al-Husaini, in his book "al-Hidaya" mentions the twelfth Imam, the master of time, as the son of the eleventh Imam Hasan al-Askari.
    27. The well known biographer, Ibn Khallakan in his book "Wafayat al-A'ayan", has given a brief account of the birth of the Imam.
    28. Ibn al-Azraq, as quoted by Ibn Khallakan, asserts the existence of the twelfth Imam.
    29. Ibn al-Wardi the historian, in his work asserts the birth of the son of al-Askari in 255 AH.
    30. Sayyid Mu'min Shablanji in his work "Noor al-Absar" gives the genealogy of Imam Muhammad al-Mahdi (as), the twelfth Imam.
    After these and many more, those who deny his birth and his present life have no proof against those who have accepted this fact, while they still recognize the correctness of traditions about Imam al-Mahdi. The Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HF) said:

    "He who dies not knowing the Imam of his era, has died the death of al-Jahiliyya (Days of Ignorance; the era before Islam)."

    IbnSohan got a reaction from Shees Hassan Shaikh in Hashawiyah   
    Hashawiyah is a term used in medieval times to refer to Hanbalis. The general meaning of it is those who memories (hasha) hadiths (or any other knowledge) but do not understand it.
    Hanbalis were called Hashawiyah because they were accused of not understanding hadiths, taking the meaning of the first impression and applying it immediately without further study. They ended up as Mujasemah (those who attribute a body to Allah) and Mushabehah( those who claim a like to Allah from among His creatures).
    That's why it is important to study any particular hadith thoroughly before we try to give it a meaning that might be the furthest from the truth. It dose not matter how many hadith you know nor how many you bring into an argument, if you do not understand them all properly then you get no credit hehe, actually bringing a hadith without understanding the meaning is a negative point.

    IbnSohan got a reaction from rotten_coconut in Ramadan Will Always Be 30 Days?   
    In old ages, in multicultural environment, the most important factor in a narrator was how accurate he can deliver the narration. This narration can be a letter, a poem or a hadith. The medieval Arabs had put great importance on strong memory as an indicator for good scholar. There is a saying by Imam Ali where he says that the illness of knowledge is forgetting. People in those times did not have trouble using their slaves or relaying on others from another sect or religion to get information from as long as they are known for strong memory.
     
    Dabt is accuracy in memorizing and reciting the hadith with the same exact wording. Memory can play tricks, it can allure you to put a word instead of another, or add your assumption or the interpretation or it can make you add extra words from another narration, something that is called memory gap. In that case you will fill the gap with extra information you got from another source subconsciously. When a narrator is described with dabt or accuracy, it means that his memory is very strong that you may not notice any change in wordings between what was said and what he narrated. For a narrator to have lack of dabt is like a doctor with medico-legal issues in our days, it affects his reputation.
     
    Takhlit means mixing, it means that his ahadith are a mix of known proper hadiths complete and free from maladies, and ahadith that you may spot memory gap in them, words in a place of the correct words etc.
    I was not talking about that sort of tahklit , as takhlit means hadiths that you recognize and a hadith that you reject (completely or partially). Some scholar ( and curse be upon Shytan, I cannot get the place where i read this)  said that our great companions, whom Imams may inform them about the most difficult hadiths ( in meaning), those maybe accused of ghulu or such not because they were ghali but due to their high status, their hadiths sometimes maybe rejected because people will not recognize. That why I said , maybe because Ibn Fadhal was fatHi (which means most likely he was not close to Imams) may had spot not irregularities in hadith due to lack of accuracy from Abu Basir part but maybe he had spotted hadiths with meanings that he had rejected. (This is ofcourse my own guess)
     
    Pay attention that the hadiths regarding fiqh were the first to escape the hadith ban policy that was placed by Omer, by the time of Imam Sadiq, and due to the great contributions that he and his father made for this Ummah, fiqh reached maturity state ( on public level, meaning the books were written, the public are aware of it, schools of fiqh start to be formed etc) But Aqeedah issues did not reach maturity yet most likely. It is common to read in hadiths about a man approaching Imam sadiq and asking him about Raj'ah or other beliefs that many reject, then Imam will ask him "who taught you that, this is very special piece of knowledge from our school", it clearly shows that Imam and his companions were not talking to everyone about these beliefs. In fact Imam  himself ordered his companions to narrate to people what they can handle and what they recognized, while the beliefs that they cannot handle or cannot comprehend should be kept away from them, my understanding of this hadith is that those hadiths that not everyone can handle may deter others from entering into the Shia school if they were slapped with them at first without proper understanding of the faith as a whole. The approach to religion was step by step instead of all of it at once.
    For this I said, maybe the takhlit that Ibn Fadhal was talking about is about a sort of hadiths that he could not recognize or it could be due to what Islamic salvation pointed to, the fact that Abu Basir was blind so others will write the hadiths for him, but saying that because he was blind then he will not transmit the hadiths orally with accuracy may need an evidence that Abu Basir had a bad memory.
     
     
    well, it is really not that important, it just gives you a glimpse about how life was back in those days.

    in cognitive psychology, cognitive distortions are thoughts that are exaggerated and irrational. Some variants of cognitive therapy claim that these thought patterns perpetuate some psychological disorders. David D. Burns presented the theory of cognitive distortions in The Feeling Good Handbook in 1989,[1] (and previously in Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy in 1980) after studying under Aaron T. Beck.[2] Burns and his followers say that eliminating these "twisted" thought patterns improves mood and mental disorders such as depression and chronic anxiety.

    In Sunni Rijal system, any narration that record an incident of hatred or insult to any of Ahlulbayt by a certain narrator, this incident will be perceived by Sunni scholars as a merit to the narrator. He will be either more jealous on Islam than the prophet himself, or he was caring about the prophet so he said do not over burden him by the pen and paper or that killing Imam Husain just proves that I bn Sa'ad was strong in faith that he fought against the outlaws and the dichotomy in the ummah, he kept its unity etc of the excauses that are made for those Sahabis
     
    On the other hand, when someone from that era, be it  a sahabi or a tabe'i, belongs to the other camp (that claim that  khilafah is tawqeef from Allah and not Shura, who do not consider the first three as infallible or holy figures or at least, do  consider Ali to have merits that non of the sahabah has)
    Those who belong to this camp had been moved by hawa (opinions, likings etc) not trustworthy.
     
    It all gets down to the hadith that hatred of Imam Ali is the measure of hypocrisy, most hypocrites do not see this hadith to hold value in terms of rijals, they may think that prophet was speaking in metaphor.

    21. Sibt Ibn al-Jawzi, al-Hanafi, (Shams al-Din Abul Mudhaffar Yusuf), the author of "Tathkirat al-Khawas", pp 325-328 gives the names of 22 people believed by Muslims to have lived various ages from 3,000 down to 300 years! He also writes about the twelfth Imam as follows
    He (al-Mahdi) is Muhammad Ibn al-Hasan Ibn Ali Ibn Muhammad Ibn Ali Ibn Musa al-Ridha
    His title is Abu Abdillah and Abul Qasim
    He is the last successor of the Prophet (PBUH&HF)
    He is the Last Imam of the House
    He is the authoritative proof of God (al-Hujjah)
    He is the master of time (Sahib al-Zaman)
    and he is the expected one (al-Muntadhar)

    22. Abu Bakr Ahmad Ibn Hasan al-Bayhaqi, the famous Shafi'i jurist, has confirmed the birth of the son of al-Askari and his being as the expected Mahdi.
    23. Shaikh Sadruddin, known as Hamavi, who has written a book about the Last Imam of the House of the Prophet (PBUH&HF). He quotes a tradition of the Holy Prophet (PBUH&HF) as follows

    Prophet (PBUH&HF) said: "The learned one among my followers are in the rank of the Prophets from among the Children of Israel", also referring to the twelve Naqeeb (chiefs)of the Children of Israel (see Quran 5:12). But the last Wali, who is the last of the successors of the Prophet (PBUH&HF) and who is the Twelfth Wali in the chain of Awliaa, is al-Mahdi, "Sahib al-Zaman", his appellation and title should not be used for any one else.
    24. Shaikh Ahmad Jami, (as quoted by Qundoozi, author of "Yanabi al- Mawaddah", and Qadhi Noorullah author of "Majalis al-Mu'mineen") has composed the following poem:
    My heart is fine and bright with the love of Haydar
    Next to Haydar, al-Hasan is our Guide and Leader.
    The dust beneath the Shoes of al-Husain
    is the eyeliner (surmah) for my eyes.
    al-Abideen, the ornament of all devotees
    is like a crown on my head.
    al-Baqir is the light of both my eyes.
    The religion of Ja'far is true and the path of Musa is right.
    O, loyal, ones: listen to me praising the King of Kings (al-Ridha)
    who is buried in Khurasan.
    A particle from the dust of his tomb is the cure of all pains
    Leader of men of faith is al-Taqi, O dear Muslims
    If you love al-Naqi in preference to all other people,
    you have done the thing which is proper and right.
    al-Askari is the light of the eyes of both Adam and the world.
    Where can be found, in the world,
    such a chief in command like al-Mahdi?
    25. Shaikh Amir Ibn Basri has composed an eulogy called Qasidah Tayya. The composition contains theosophical lore, maxims, mystical points, and matter of etiquette. Here are some lines quoted:
    O' Imam al-Mahdi! How long will You be hidden?
    Oblige us, O' our father, with your return!
    We feel sad the waiting time is prolonged.
    For the sake of Thy Lord, bless us with your audience.
    O the pole of being! Hasten, O our beloved!
    Return, so that we may enjoy the sight.
    Surely, it is a great a pleasure
    for a lover to meet his beloved after a long absence.
    26. Husain Ibn Hamdan al-Husaini, in his book "al-Hidaya" mentions the twelfth Imam, the master of time, as the son of the eleventh Imam Hasan al-Askari.
    27. The well known biographer, Ibn Khallakan in his book "Wafayat al-A'ayan", has given a brief account of the birth of the Imam.
    28. Ibn al-Azraq, as quoted by Ibn Khallakan, asserts the existence of the twelfth Imam.
    29. Ibn al-Wardi the historian, in his work asserts the birth of the son of al-Askari in 255 AH.
    30. Sayyid Mu'min Shablanji in his work "Noor al-Absar" gives the genealogy of Imam Muhammad al-Mahdi (as), the twelfth Imam.
    After these and many more, those who deny his birth and his present life have no proof against those who have accepted this fact, while they still recognize the correctness of traditions about Imam al-Mahdi. The Messenger of Allah (PBUH&HF) said:

    "He who dies not knowing the Imam of his era, has died the death of al-Jahiliyya (Days of Ignorance; the era before Islam)."

    IbnSohan got a reaction from Ibn Al-Ja'abi in The Reward Of Those Who Curse Openly   
    Bismillahi ArRahmani ArRaheem
     
    It is narrated that a man came to Imam Sadiq and told him that there is X man who is cursing the Three openly in the mosque, Imam Sadiq said with disagrrement " What's wrong with him, may Allah curse him for he is (ya'ridhu bina)
     
    Ya'ridhu bina is like making us a target, it is like how you wave the red cloth for a bull or take some live humans as shields in the battles etc.
     
     وقيل للصادق عليه السلام: يا ابن رسول الله، إنا نرى في المسجد رجلا يعلن بسب أعدائكم ويسميهم، فقال: "ما له لعنه الله يعرض بنا" . وقال الله تعالى: "ولا تسبوا الذين يدعون من دون الله فيسبوا الله عدوا بغير علم ".
     
     
    I've heard stories about non Saudi nationals going to hajj and zeyarah of prophet, cursing publicly and going in with quarrels with the wahabis , thinking that they are safe from being killed or harmed. Brothers, know that you are not safe and that you might be targeted either by police or by masses.
    Also, know that these actions are frowned upon by the Shia, that you will not get their support. Also know that what you seem to see as courage action and proper rafidhi attitude is in fact a cursed attitude by our imams.
    Brothers, consider yourself in Saqifah when you are doing Zeyarah to prophet, consider yourself present in the day when prophet asked for a pen and paper but was given argument and quarrel, always remmeber that prophet dismissed them all who were present and said "there should be no quarrel around a prophet"
     
    Brothers, act with high respect while in the presence of our prophet, if you heard bad words, do not respond, if you heard others cursing our Imams do not respond
     
    It is narrated that Imam Sadiq said " Verliy, when I hear the man curse me in the mosque, I hide from him so he will not see me"
     
     وقال الصادق عليه السلام: "إني لأسمع الرجل في المسجد وهو يشتمني، فأستتر منه بالسارية كي لا يراني".
     
    The winner is not the loudest, the winner is not the strongest, brothers, remember that winners are the one who can resist to act lowly
     
    Imam Sadiq said " May Allah have mercy upon the man who make others like us"
    وقال عليه السلام: "رحم الله عبدا حببنا إلى الناس ، ولم يبغضنا إليهم"

    The Romanian Ambassador to Iraq, Jacob Prada, was honored to have visited the holy city of Karbala, in particular the holy shrines of Imam Hussain and al-Abbas. He mentioned that it was his first visit and he hopes that there will be future visits to this holy city.
    During his visit to the museum of the holy shrine of Imam Hussain, the ambassador pointed out that he acquired new information regarding the Islamic religion, specifically the Shiite, after his questions were answered and cleared by the head of the museum.
    The Romanian ambassador stated, "I read the Holy Quran, fast the holy month of Ramadan and read books concerning Islam and the Ahlulbayt."
    As to his opinion of the museum, Prada cleared, "The museum is at maximum creativity, where it includes plentiful eye-catching valuables that forced me to capturing photos with my personal camera."
    Prada concluded by saying, "I sincerely thank the administration of the holy shrine for their
    hospitable reception."

    IbnSohan got a reaction from Ali Musaaa :) in Are These Popular Majlis E Aza Narrations True?   
    If a man made up a story about our prophet in which he claimed that our prophet talked to the rock in Jerusalem or the black stone , and he forged a whole made up story about it. He mixed some truth to his fabrications telling some true hadiths about how trees and rocks greeted our prophet . Let's assume that those around him liked the story of a man talking to a rock, let's say it was an era where humans could communicate with less live creatures.
    Now if another man stood up against this fabrication, he told people that prophet did not talked to that rock, the incident did not happen and the conversation is made up. Let's assume that people went emotional accusing the latter man of being disbeliever in our prophet miracles.
    Dose this story ring a bell in your brains? No?
    Let's assume that our prophet came back to life and heard people making up stories about him and forging hadiths that he never said, do you reckon our prophet will consider that a sign of love? You don't know?
    We'll let me tell you that in history a likeness of this incident happened, prophet once went on pulpit after hearing some sahaba forging hadiths claiming that he said them, he gathered people and warned them " whoever forged a Hadith deliberately ( claiming that I said it) then he has reserved his seat in hell"
    Our imams words are our prophet words, the rules applied on our prophet hadiths are applied on our imams hadiths
    Now should we support what we like or should we support what our prophet like? Also, our imams would love us to love them and love us to love them by following them, imam Sadiq said that the way to make people follow us ahlulbayt is by delivering to them our own words but sadly people add and omit from our words.

    You should admit that you are losing the battle today. Shiaism is growing and spreading in Africa, east Asia and Western world which is your newer headquarters.
    The reason is simple : These nobel Hadiths of Ghadir and Thaqalyin were hidden for centuries from the Sunnis.
