  1. Depends what your definition of companion is. According to the dictionary it means someone you spend much time with. For me personally, it doesn't rule out even a hypocrite spending time with Muhammad being called a companion. Nor does one being called a companion automatically mean they're good. In fact, in the context of Surah Najm, it would appear Allah was addressing concerns/doubts of the companions of Muhammad. Thus He says that your companion Muhammad hasn't erred, nor spoken from self, it is naught but a revelation. Would explain why they weren't called "believers" here. Can't
  2. Is that a serious argument? The good and the lawful aren't mutually exclusive [as you yourself have observed]: [7:157] those who follow the Messenger, 'the Prophet of the common folk, whom they find written down with them in the Torah and the Gospel, bidding them to honour, and forbidding them dishonour, making lawful for them the good things and making unlawful for them the corrupt things, and relieving them of their loads, and the fetters that were upon them. Those who believe in him and succour him and help him, and follow the light that has been sent down with him -- they are the pros
  3. Allah refers to Muhammad as "your companion" in 53:2. So the word itself definitely exists. If he's their companion then they're his companions.
  4. There is no problem with breaking an oath as Allah has given permission to do so. What you need to ponder over is why Muhammad was made to break his oath. Why was he not allowed to keep it to please his wives? It's because the prohibition he made was a transgression. Because obedience to Allah is priority, and not obedience to wives. Because it would have set a grievous example; Tomorrow people would start prohibiting x y z for x y z person and they would give the example of Muhammad as justification, which is a problem because Allah has said you cannot prohibit what He has made lawful.
  5. Already answered this in comments above. Allah had already defined prohibiting the lawful as a transgression in 5:87 so He didn't need to repeat in 66:1, but just reminded "...And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful". Likewise, He had already shown how to break an oath in 5:89 so didn't need to repeat that either in 66:2, but just reminded that the procedure had already been detailed. 66:1 ends with "...And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful". Same as what Allah says in: [4:105-106] Surely We have sent down to thee the Book with the truth, so that thou mayest judge between
  6. Everything one needs to be a submitter and believer is detailed in the Qur'an. It's a traditionalist claim that Allah left gaps in the Qur'an or purposely made it puzzling, and it's exactly just that; claims. The Quran testifies to completely the opposite. Here's some verses to give thought: [3:138] This [Qur'an] is a clear statement to [all] the people and a guidance and instruction for those conscious of Allah. [6:114] [Say], "Then is it other than Allah I should seek as judge while it is He who has revealed to you the Book explained in detail?"... [11:1] Alif, Lam, Ra. [This
  7. No matter how sahih the hadith, no one can claim with a 100% certainty that X personality ever uttered those words. Hence the hadith corpus will and can never be on equal footing with the Quran, which is al-Furqaan. It verifies the other, the other doesn't verify it. How can one compare the Book of Allah with books forged by man which have no established authority and no authority to guide the Quranic discourse. One free from contradictions, the other full of them. It's unbelievable to think that for one to understand the Quran, they also need [say] all the volumes of al-Kafi with them too.
  8. 6:108 "Abuse not those to whom they pray, apart from God, or they will abuse God in revenge without knowledge. So We have decked out fair to every nation their deeds; then to their Lord they shall return, and He will tell them what they have been doing." Fact that Sunnis don't curse the saints of the Shias in retaliation is commendable.
  9. When your time is up, then your time is up. He who gives protection, can take it away too when He wills. The bigger question is, how did Ali know he was going to be killed when the Quran says this: [31:34] Surely God -- He has knowledge of the Hour; He sends down the rain; He knows what is in the wombs. No soul knows what it shall earn tomorrow, and no soul knows in what land it shall die. Surely God is All-knowing, All-aware.
  10. 48:2 "...and guide thee on a straight path" Being on the straight path doesn't mean ones guidance ends. 66:1 is again sufficient proof for this. Muhammad was on the right path. Yet he made two errors; 1. He listened to his deviant wives [unless we say he didn't know they were deviants], 2. He prohibiting on himself that which Allah made lawful. So Allah corrected him and he was compelled to dissolve the oath. The guidance has been given by Allah and it is up to everyone to follow that guidance. Part of the guidance and being on the right path is seeking the forgiveness of Allah for o
  11. Muhammad's past and later sins are between him and His Lord. I can only state from the Quran. 66:1 is a clear example of a transgression. The revelation of 48:2 in the timeline would decide whether the transgression in 66:1 was before of after. Not that it matters, it's irrelevant. As for your for 2nd question. Again, you fail to think about the verses on a timeline. The Prophetic mission has a timeline from start to finish. Likewise the Quran was revealed gradually to both Muhammad and the people as per 25:32 [which we have discussed to death before]. Muhammad was first guided to th
  12. 1. Being *on* the right path doesn't mean being infallible. Believers are on the right path but aren't infallible. Do you not say [1:6] "Keep us on the right path"? You quoted 43:43. See the following verse 43:44 "Surely it is a Reminder to thee and to thy people; and assuredly you will be questioned." - despite being on the right path. Accountability for everyone. 48:1-2 "Surely We have given thee a manifest victory, that God may forgive thee thy former and thy latter sins, and complete His blessing upon thee, and guide thee on a straight path," (You should read tafsir Qummi fo
  13. I am simply enjoining upon one the Quran, which has been abandoned. Muhammad himself will complain of such abandonment on the Day of Recompense (25:30). Everything I state is with reference and can be checked. Allah is witness of my intentions and sincerity. I consider myself as Godfearing. Unfortunately, what is holding Muslims back from studying the Quran today is their preconceived view that it cannot be understood without x y z. This is false and the Quran doesn't testify to such a belief. A bigger problem is Muslims twisting the Quran to fit their view, rather than seeking true
  14. Salaam, Below is a short extract from a Shia tafsir, which I'd like to enjoin upon you insha Allah: Full version here: https://hubeali.com/books/English-Books/TafseerHub-e-Ali/CH2_SuraAlBaqarah_Verses97-132_P5.pdf May we be of those that put the Quran at the forefront for seeking Allah's true guidance, Insha Allah; The Word of Allah, the Infallible, thus too His Word. The only infallible source in our midst and The Criterion. Peace.
  15. Yes, we follow the Messenger who himself was a follower of the revelation. Likewise, we follow him in making atonement for transgressions, which he clearly was not free from himself (66:1). This teaches us the Mercy of Allah, he is All Forgiving to His subjects. We've discussed Mukhlaseen before. The sincere servants. Those that will attain paradise, which isn't exclusive to the Ahlul Bayt. Mentioned many times in Surah Suffaat and see 15:40 onward which very clearly describes who the sincere servants are. Surah Najm is in relation to revelation only (53:4) "This is naught but a reve
