    Abe got a reaction from TheIslamHistory in Will World End & Human Race Ends On Qayamat?   
    The "13th imam" idea comes from the ahadith about the "Mahdiyoon" or the "12 Mahdis" who are said to rule after the 12th imam. The narrations about this are all weak and have many majhool narrators.

    You seem very inconsistent when it comes to studying religion. The infallibles explained things in that way, what gives you the right to question what they said? 
     
    Religion is not always in agreement with the rationality of a fallible guy on ShiaChat. May things in Islam can seem irrational, can you reject it all outright? Of course not. (Unless you would take it to that level, then that isn't Shi`a Islam, it's PureEthics' innovated sugarcoated portrayal of "God's perfect system" which was infused into your brain via the 1000s of Rajabali lectures).

    Brother, have you read anything about the rules on music, or are you just mad at me for speaking? If you read what the imams [a.s] have said regarding music and singing, you would not be accusing me of having a black heart and a waste of mind. Please, I advise you learn more about the subject. And as I have mentioned, I am not the only one who says this about Fadlallah, even some top maraji` accused him of that, and you're not in the position to criticize them, when clearly they know what they're talking about.

    Abe reacted to Qa'im in Tusi's Ghayba: Selections   
    (salam)
     
    I've decided to translate some sections from Tusi's Ghayba and post them to this thread. I will not be going by any particular order or grading standad, I will pretty much translate whatever I want. Sometime ago, I edited and translated a slew of ahadith from the book, and you can find that thread here.
     
    You can find my mu`tabar Kamal ad-Deen translation here.
     
    The following sections I am dealing with are a part of Shaykh at-Tusi's response to the historical Waqifa, who were the sect that believed that the 7th Imam (as) was the Mahdi.
     
    --
     
     
     
    الكلام على الواقفة
    Statements on the Waqifa
     
     
     وأما الذي يدل على فساد مذهب الواقفة الذين وقفوا في إمامة أبي الحسن موسى عليه السلام وقالوا: " إنه المهدي " فقولهم باطل بما ظهر من موته عليه السلام، واشتهر واستفاض، كما اشتهر موت أبيه وجده ومن تقدم من آبائه عليهم السلام. ولو شككنا لم ننفصل من الناووسية والكيسانية والغلاة والمفوضة الذين خالفوا في موت من تقدم من آبائه عليهم السلام. على أن موته اشتهر ما لم يشتهر موت أحد من آبائه عليهم السلام، لانه أظهر وأحضر (1) والقضاة والشهود، ونودي عليه ببغداد على الجسر وقيل: " هذا الذي تزعم الرافضة أنه حي لا يموت مات حتف أنفه " وما جرى هذا المجرى لا يمكن الخلاف فيه (2)
     
    And as for that which invalidates the Waqifi sect, which has stopped (waqifu) at the Imamate of Abu’l Hasan Musa عليه السلام and has said, “He is the Mahdi”. Their saying is false due to what has manifested from his عليه السلام death, which is well-known and widely reported, just like the death of his father, his grandfather, and all who came before from his forefathers عليهم السلام. If we were to doubt [the death of Abu’l Hasan Musa عليه السلام], we would be no different from the Nawusiyya, the Kaysaniyya, the ghulat, and the Mufawwida, who have differed in regards to the deaths of those who came before him from his forefathers عليهم السلام. His death was more widely-reported than any of his forefathers عليهم السلام, because it was more apparent and more extant. [And there were] judges, witnesses, and a proclamation about it in Baghdad upon the bridge. And it said: “This is the one whom the Rafida allege is alive and does not die – he died and [his soul] passed from his nose (i.e. he died a natural death)”. And from all that has reached us, there is no possibility of dispute in it.
     
    2 - فروى يونس بن عبد الرحمن قال: حضر الحسين بن علي الرواسي جنازة أبي إبراهيم عليه السلام. فما وضع على شفير القبر، إذا رسول من سندي بن شاهك قد أتى أبا المضا (1) خليفته - وكان مع الجنازة - أن أكشف وجهه للناس قبل أن تدفنه حتى يروه صحيحا لم يحدث به حدث. قال: وكشف عن وجه مولاي حتى رأيته وعرفته، ثم غطي وجهه وأدخل قبره صلى الله عليه (2).
     
      Yunus b. `Abd ar-Rahman narrated. He said: al-Husayn b. `Ali ar-Rawasi attended the funeral of Abu Ibrahim عليه السلام, so when he was placed into the grave, a messenger from Sindi b. Shahik had met al-Mada, who was his representative – and he was with the funeral – to [tell him to] unveil his face for the people prior to his burial, so that they may see him properly and that nothing had happened with him. He said: And he uncovered the face of my Master until I saw him and recognized him. Then, his face was covered and he was entered into his grave. May Allah bless him.
     
      3 - وروى محمد بن عيسى بن عبيد العبيدي قال: أخبرتني رحيم (3) أم ولد الحسين بن علي بن يقطين - وكانت امرأة حرة فاضلة قد حجت نيفا وعشرين حجة - عن سعيد مولى أبي الحسن عليه السلام - وكان يخدمه في الحبس ويختلف في حوائجه - أنه حضره حين مات كما يموت الناس من قوة إلى ضعف إلى أن قضى عليه السلام (4).
     
      And Muhammad b. `Isa b. `Ubayd al-`Ubaydi narrated. He said: Rahima, the mother of al-Husayn b. `Ali b. Yaqtin, informed me – and she was a virtuous freewoman who had performed Hajj twenty-seven times – from Sa`eed the slave of Abu’l Hasan عليه السلام – who used to serve him in prison and fulfill various of his needs – that he had attended to him when he died. He died just as the people die, from strength to weakness.
     
       4 – وروى محمد بن خالد البرقي، عن محمد بن عباد (5) المهلبي قال: لما حبس هارون الرشيد أبا إبراهيم موسى عليه السلام وأظهر الدلائل والمعجزات وهو في الحبس تحير الرشيد، فدعا يحيى بن خالد البرمكي (6) فقال له: يا أبا علي أما ترى ما نحن فيه من هذه العجائب، ألا تدبر في أمر هذا الرجل تدبيرا يريحنا من غمه ؟ فقال له يحيى بن خالد البرمكي: الذي أراه لك يا أمير المؤمنين أن تمنن عليه وتصل (1) رحمه، فقد – والله – أفسد علينا قلوب شيعتنا. وكان يحيى يتولاه، وهارون لا يعلم ذلك. فقال هارون: انطلق إليه وأطلق عنه الحديد، وأبلغه عني السلام، وقل له: يقول لك ابن عمك: إنه قد سبق مني فيك يمين أني لا أخليك حتى تقر لي بالاساءة، وتسألني العفو عما سلف منك، وليس عليك في إقرارك عار، ولا في مسألتك إياي منقصة. وهذا يحيى بن خالد (هو) (2) ثقتي ووزيري، وصاحب أمري، فسله بقدر ما أخرج من يميني وانصرف راشدا      And Muhammad b. Khalid al-Barqi narrated from Muhammad b. `Ibad al-Muhallabi. He said: When Harun ar-Rashid had put Abu Ibrahim Musa عليه السلام in prison, and the indicators [to his Imamate] and the miracles became manifest as he was in prison, ar-Rashid was perplexed. So he called for Yahya b. Khalid al-Barmaki and said to him: O Abu `Ali, do you not see what we see from these astonishing works? Do you not contemplate over the affair of this man and think to relieve us from worrying about him? So Yahya b. Khalid al-Barmaki said to him: In my viewpoint, O commander of the faithful, you must wish him well and send him to his blood relatives, for, by Allah, he has corrupted the hearts of our followers for us. And Yahya had taken him (i.e. Imam al-Kadhim) as his Master, but Harun did not know that. So Harun said: Go to him, remove the iron from him, and give him my salaam on my behalf. And say to him: Your cousin says to you: I have sworn upon my right [hand] regarding you that I will not leave you (i.e. free you) until you acknowledge that you have mistreated me, and that you ask for my forgiveness for what you have done. There is no embarrassment upon you in such a decision [to apologize], nor is there disgrace in asking me [for my forgiveness]. And this is Yahya b. Khalid; he is my trustee, my vizier, and the owner of my affairs, so ask him by that which I have sworn upon my right [hand] for, and be gone with guidance.
     
       - 5قال محمد بن عباد (4): فأخبرني موسى بن يحيى بن خالد: أن أبا إبراهيم عليه السلام قال ليحيى: يا أبا علي أنا ميت، وإنما بقي من أجلي أسبوع، أكتم موتي وائتني يوم الجمعة عند الزوال، وصل علي أنت وأوليائي فرادى، وانظر إذا سار هذا الطاغية إلى الرقة، وعاد إلى العراق لا يراك ولا تراه لنفسك، فإني رأيت في نجمك ونجم ولدك ونجمه أنه يأتي عليكم فاحذروه. ثم قال: يا أبا علي أبلغه عني: يقول لك موسى بن جعفر: رسولي يأتيك يوم الجمعة فيخبرك بما ترى، وستعلم غدا إذا جاثيتك بين يدي الله من الظالم والمعتدي على صاحبه، والسلام. فخرج يحيى من عنده، واحمرت عيناه من البكاء حتى دخل على هارون فأخبره بقصته وما رد عليه، فقال [ له ] (5) هارون: إن لم يدع النبوة بعد أيام فما أحسن حالنا. فلما كان يوم الجمعة توفي أبو إبراهيم عليه السلام، وقد خرج هارون إلى المدائن قبل ذلك، فأخرج إلى الناس حتى نظروا إليه، ثم دفن عليه السلام ورجع الناس، فافترقوا فرقتين: فرقة تقول: مات، وفرقة تقول: لم يمت (1) (
     
      Muhammad b. `Ibad said: Musa b. Yahya b. Khalid informed me that Abu Ibrahim عليه السلام said to Yahya: O Abu `Ali, I am dying, and only one week remains from my life. Conceal my death, and come to me at noon on Friday. Pray upon me solitarily with my supporters, and see when this tyrant goes to ar-Raqqa. When he returns to Iraq, he should not see you, nor should you see him yourself; for I have seen in your star, and in the star of your offspring, and in his star that he will pursue you – so avoid him. Then, he said: O Abu `Ali, tell him on my behalf: Musa b. Ja`far says to you: My messenger will come to you on Friday, and he will inform you of what you see (i.e. Imam al-Kadhim’s death), and you will know tomorrow when I will make you kneel in front of Allah for the oppression and aggression. Salaam. So Yahya left him, and his eyes reddened from weeping until he entered upon Harun and informed him of his story and what was told him. So Harun said to him: If he leaves prophethood after [these] days, we would be in a better state. So when Friday came, Abu Ibrahim عليه السلام passed away, and Harun had left to the cities prior to that. So he (i.e. al-Kadhim’s body) was taken out so that they may see him. Then, he عليه السلام was buried, and the people returned. They then split into two groups: A group that said, “He died”, and a group that said, “He did not die”.
     

     
    - 7وروى محمد بن يعقوب (4) عن علي بن إبراهيم، عن محمد بن عيسى بن عبيد، عن الحسن بن محمد بن بشار (5) قال حدثني شيخ (6) من أهل قطيعة (7) الربيع من العامة ممن كان يقبل قوله، قال: جمعنا السندي بن شاهك ثمانين رجلا من الوجوه المنسوبين إلى الخير فأدخلنا على موسى بن جعفر عليه السلام، وقال لنا السندي: يا هؤلاء انظروا إلى هذا الرجل هل حدث به حدث ؟ فإن أمير المؤمنين لم يرد به سوء، وإنما ننتظر به أن يقدم ليناظره (1) وهو صحيح موسع عليه في جميع أموره فسلوه وليس لنا هم إلا النظر إلى الرجل في فضله وسمته. فقال موسى بن جعفر عليه السلام: أما ما ذكره من التوسعة وما أشبهها فهو على ما ذكر، غير أني أخبركم أيها النفر إني قد سقيت السم في سبع تمرات وأنا غدا أخضر وبعد غد أموت، فنظرت إلى السندي بن شاهك يضطرب ويرتعد مثل السعفة (2).
     
      And Muhammad b. Ya`qub narrated from `Ali b. Ibrahim from Muhamamd b. `Isa b. `Ubayd from al-Hasan b. Muhammad b. Bashar. He said: An `ammi shaykh from the people of Qati`at ar-Rabi` (a locale in Baghdad) whose sayings are acceptable said: as-Sindi b. Shahik gathered eighty men from the respected and noble classes with us, and we entered upon Musa b. Ja`far عليه السلام. And al-Sindi said to us: O you, look at this man – has anything happened to him? For surely, the commander of the faithful would not want anything detestable for him. But rather, he is waiting for him to debate him while he is well in all of his affairs. So, ask him. [The Shaykh said:] And we had no concerns except looking to the man in his virtue and his countenance. So Musa b. Ja`far said: As for what you have mentioned from the explanation (?) and what which is similar to it, then they are not as he mentioned. However, O group, I inform you that I have been given poison in seven dates. Tomorrow I will turn green, and after tomorrow I will die. So I looked to as-Sindi b. Shahik, who was disturbed and had shuddered like a leaf.
     
    فموته عليه السلام أشهر من أن يحتاج إلى ذكر الرواية به، لان المخالف في ذلك يدفع الضرورات، والشك في ذلك يؤدي إلى الشك في موت كل واحد من آبائه وغيرهم فلا يوثق بموت أحد. على أن المشهور عنه عليه السلام أنه وصى إلى ابنه علي بن موسى عليه السلام وأسند إليه أمره بعد موته، والاخبار بذلك أكثر من أن تحصى، نذكر منها طرفا ولو كان حيا باقيا لما احتاج إليه (3).
     
      For his (as) death would be so conspicuous that there would be no need for narrations about it, as disagreement in that would be opposing realities, and doubt in that would lead to doubt in the deaths of everyone from his forefathers and others – so no one’s death would be established.  The popular opinion about him (as) is that he had deputed his son `Ali b. Musa (as) and transferred his command to him after his death, and the reports about that are more than countless. We will mention some of them, for if he (Musa b. Ja`far) had been alive and remaining, he would not have needed it (i.e. to depute ar-Rida).

    They also recently shut down many Shi`a channels which they said belong to the "British agents" because they supposedly cause fitnah between Shi`as and Sunnis. Why would they do it? Probably because of all this call to "unity" between Muslims, which means they are forced to let go of their `Aqeedah to please other sects.

    Although that statement might have some truth in it, but the Hadith doesn't go like that. It is:
     
    وسيأتي شيعتي من يدعي المشاهدة ، ألا فمن ادعى المشاهدة قبل خروج السفياني والصيحة فهو كذابٌ مفتر 
    "And there will come (from) my Shi`a who claim to have seen me. Verily, anyone who claims to have seen me before the rise of al-Sufyani and the Sayha (Call), then he is a deceptive liar". 
     
    As for the Fuqaha' being "Representatives" of the imam, I also don't disagree much with that. The Tawqee` from the 12th imam says that the narrators of Hadith are the Hujja of the imam over the Shi`a, and that he is the Hujja of Allah upon them. Hence: 
     
      فإنهم حجتي عليكم وأنا حجة الله
    "...For they are my Hujja over you and I am the Hujja of Allah"
     
    Generally, just as the imam is the representative of Allah for us, the Fuqaha' during the Ghayba are the representatives of the imam for the Shi`a. It's a basic equation. But then again, not many scholars are good enough for such a rank, only a very few are honest, safeguarding to the religion and defending the Madhab from Bid`as and outside attacks...etc.
     
    At the same time, there isn't a justification for calling a jurist "Imam" or such. "Sheikh" or "Sayyed" is sufficient, I don't know why this term is so famous nowadays to use for Maraji`.
