    gentleman. got a reaction from AmirioTheMuzzy in Bida' in Adhan   
    Salam

    It is famous between Muslims that any change which distorts the original form of Islamic ceremonies, ritual or practices, which were proved at the time of the holy prophet, is Bida' and also is haram (forbidden).

    Adhan (the call to prayer) was something special with specific words in the time of the holy prophet and during the caliphate of Abubakr. But a strange event made it different!!

    Quoted from Al Movata':

    The Muezzin (who call, the call to prayer) of Umar came to him to wake him up for the morning prayer, but he saw that Umar is asleep. So he said: Al Salat khayr men Al num (meaning the prayer is better than sleeping), then Umar ordered to put this sentence in the Adhan of the morning!

    مَّنِ اهْتَدَى‏ فَإِنَّمَا يهَْتَدِى لِنَفْسِهِ  وَ مَن ضَلَّ فَإِنَّمَا يَضِلُّ عَلَيهَْا  وَ لَا تَزِرُ وَازِرَةٌ وِزْرَ أُخْرَى‏  وَ مَا كُنَّا مُعَذِّبِينَ حَتىَ‏ نَبْعَثَ رَسُولًا(15)
    Whosoever goes right, it is only for (the good of) his own soul that he goes right, and whosoever erred, erred only to its hurt. No laden soul can bear another's load, we never punish until we have sent a messenger. (17, 15)

    These are the days referred as Ayyam e Zahra a.s, these are days when Syeda Zahra a.s was struck by the enemies and got ill and departed from this world to meet her father Prophet PBUHHP. I on my behalf and my parents and my family pay condolences to Imam of our time, Imam e Zamana a.s and all the Masomeen a.s and Momineen on this tragic incident. And pray to Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì for the sake of Ahle bait a.s that give us all momineen strength to plead her case throughout the world and reveal the hypocrisy of the enemies of Ahle bait a.s and fulfill our duty as laid down us by Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì himself. We are the one who were born with the prayer of Syeda Zainab a.s, we are her shias who will plead the case of her brother Imam Hussain a.s and her mother Syeda Zahra a.s who gave her life in Sujood, we are the shias who are born to defend the innocence of Imam Ali a.s, the one who was denied caliphate and forced to drink his tears and endured blows of treachery, dishonesty and oppression on his heart. Imam Ali a.s, I have not forgotten your words which you said that you people had compelled me to drink from vessel of poison.

    gentleman. reacted to amirhosein_88 in Is there any proof of Shia claims about Hadith?   
    Salamun alaykum.
    Sahih al-Bukhari is surrounded by an air of sanctity, and rarely does anyone dare casting doubt on the authenticity of its hadiths and their narrators. Abu al-Hassan al-Muqaddasi goes so far as saying that all narrators of the hadiths of Sahih al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim are reliable. Many have accepted its hadiths without any need to investigation or examination, and they even take such an acceptance to be a tenet of faith and Islam. With regards to some of its hadiths, Dhahabi says if they were not cited in Sahih al-Bukhari, I would bet that they are forged and unauthentic. According to Imam al-Ḥaramayn, if someone swears that all hadiths in Sahih al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim are words of the Prophet (s), he has rightly done so.
    However, some Sunni scholars, such as Darqutni, have criticized the book, challenging the thought that its hadiths count as the most authentic ones. According to Ibn Hajar, 110 hadiths have been cited from Sahih al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim, 32 of which are cited in both, and 78 of which are only cited in the former. Moreover, about 80 narrators of hadiths in Sahih al-Bukhari have been considered unreliable. According to Muhammad Rashid Rida, objectionable hadiths in this book are way more than this. Much of such objections are directed at the narrators of hadiths in this book.
    Citing Nothing from Shiite Imams and their Companions
    Al-Bukhari was contemporaneous with Shiite's 10th and 11th Imams, Imam al-Hadi (a) and Imam Hasan al-'Askari (a), but he does not even cite one single hadith from these two Imams. Rarely did he cite hadiths from the companions and children of Imams (a), though there were great scholars and narrators of hadith among them.
    There are hadiths that satisfy his condition of authenticity, but he does not cite them just because there were Shiite Imams or their companions among their narrators, and he scarcely cited few hadiths from Imam 'Ali (a), Imam al-Hasan al-Mujtaba (a), Imam al-Sajjad (a), and Imam al-Baqir (a). On the contrary, he has cited hadiths from Khawarij and Nawasib, such as 'Akrama, 'Umran b. Hattan, and 'Urwa, while many Sunni scholars have taken them as unreliable.
    It is interesting that the only hadith he has cited from Imam al-Sajjad (a) concerns a disapprobation of Imam 'Ali (a).
    He has cited 446 hadiths from Abu Hurayra, who was a companion of the Prophet (s) for less than three years, 270 hadiths from 'Abd Allah b. 'Umar, 242 hadiths from 'A'isha, 57 hadiths from Abu Musa al-'Ash'ari, and over 200 hadiths from Anas b. Malik, but he has cited only 19 hadiths from Imam 'Ali (a) who was the "gate of the city of knowledge" (as the Prophet (s) is cited as having said) and only one hadith from Lady Fatima al-Zahra (a), the Prophet's daughter.
    Many fragmented and repeated hadiths
    Another feature of Sahih al-Bukhari, considered by some as a weak point, is that it contains many fragmented or repeated hadiths. According to Ibn Hajar al-'Asqalani, the reason why some scholars of Maghreb and Abu 'Ali al-Neyshaburi have preferred Sahih Muslim over Sahih al-Bukhari is that the former never fragmented hadiths, trying to record their precise words.
    Paraphrasing Hadiths
    Al-Bukhari was not committed to citing the exact words of hadiths, paraphrasing them in some cases. Abu Rayya has appealed to stories according to which al-Bukhari never wrote down hadiths when he heard them, relying instead on his own memory, and he quotes from Ibn Hajar that sometimes al-Bukhari cites one hadith with the same chain of narrators with two different phrases.
    Inauthenticity of the Content of some Hadiths
    Some hadiths in Sahih al-Bukhari have been objectionable because of their contents. According to Muhammad Rashid Rida, there are some contradictions in the contents of some of its hadiths, and Ibn Hajar's attempts to handle such contradictions are not satisfactory. He says it is difficult to show that there are forged hadiths in Sahih al-Bukhari, but it includes hadiths that exhibit some signs of forgedness, such as the one referring to the Prophet (s) being influenced by witchcrafts, which was rejected by scholars such as Jassas and Shaykh Muhammad 'Abduh. Some Shafi'is and other Sunni approaches have rejected some hadiths in Sahih al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim that are cited in books such as Ibn Jawzi's al-Intisar.
    Some Instances of Sahih al-Bukhari's Hadiths
    The following are some instances of hadiths in this book that are objectionable with respect to their contents.
    The Prophet (s) is cited to have said that: if a fly falls in your dish, fully immerse it in the dish. For one wing of the fly is pain, and the other wing is healing. The Prophet (s) did not believe his prophecy, until when Waraqa b. Nufal al-Masihi told him that he was really a prophet! The Prophet (s) forgot some verses of the Qur'an, but he later remembered them when a Muslim recited those verses. The prophet Ibrahim (or Abraham) (a) was asked to intercede (shafa'a) for someone on Dooms Day, but he told him that he has lied three times in his life; and thus asked him to go to another person for intercession. God sent the Death Angel to take the Prophet Musa (a) (or Moses)'s life, but Musa (a) slapped in his face! An ant bit a prophet's skin; the Prophet ordered to burn all those ants, and God blamed him for doing so. In Sunan al-Tirmidhi, the Prophet is cited to be Musa (a). Al-Bukhari has cited a hadith in his Al-tafsir (The exegesis of the Qur'an) and his Al-jana'iz according to which: when 'Abdullah b. Ubayy died, his son went to the Prophet (s) and asked him to pray on his father's corpse. 'Umar complained that the Prophet (s) should not pray for such a person. The Prophet (s) said God gave me the option when he told me: "whether thou ask for their forgiveness, or not, (their sin is unforgivable): if thou ask seventy times for their forgiveness, Allah will not forgive them" (9: 80). But then a new verse was descended from God approving 'Umar's view: "nor do thou ever pray for any of them that dies, nor stand at his grave" (9: 84). According to this hadith, God preferred 'Umar's view to that of the Prophet (s), which is odd. Though al-Bukhari cited the hadith in different parts of his book, it was rejected by scholars such as Abu Bakr al-Baqilani, Imam al-Ḥaramayn al-Juwayni, Abu Hamid al-Ghazali, Imam al-Dawudi, and others.

Although he was the head of the society, he learned us, it is no matter who you are is important till the greater matter (Islam) is in danger.
    Imam al-Husayn started a way which is teaching anyone in any religion or school that felicity never gets along with indolence and lounge. He taught us to change the environment, first you should change the way you think and you act upon.
