  1. For all those who want to know & learn about the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام), (those who are mentioned as ulil amr & whose obedience is obligatory as per Qur'an), should start their journey with hadith e kisa specifically the phrase "innahum minni wa ana minhum".
  2. Time to permanently fix these tongues: "Shaheed Thalith Allamah Nurullah Shustari writes: "He was one of the greatest companions and is reckoned among the foremost of the companions who embraced Islam. In embracing Islam his number was third, that is, he embraced Islam after Mother of the Faithful Khadijahtul Kubra and Commander of the Faithful Ali. According to the author of "Isti'ab" he was distinguished in knowledge, austerity, piety and truthfulness, among all the companions. Ali has said that Abu Dharr achieved that position in the acquisition and comprehension of religious learnings which nobody else could reach. The Holy Prophet used to say, "Abu Dharr is like Prophet Isa in my ummah. Abu Dharr possesses the same austerity as Prophet Isa had". According to a tradition one who wants to see the modesty of Prophet Isa should see Abu Dharr. Shaykh Saduq in his book “Uyunul Akhbar ar-Ridha” writes that Imam Ali ar-Ridha (a) has said from the authority of his forefathers that according to the hadith of the Holy Prophet, "Abu Dharr is the truthful person of this ummah". Ali says that Abu Dharr is the only person who will never care for any reproaches about Allah and His orders and commands, that is, he will say whatever is right and will act upon it, and will neither care for any threats in this connection, nor will he be over-awed by the power of the government. Scholars have written that Abu Dharr had sworn allegiance to the Prophet (s) with the promise that in the faith of Allah he would not care for any reproacher and that he would speak out the truth howmuchsoever bitter it might be. Truthfulness and courage is a quality which even the greatest personalities do not hold fast. The Holy Prophet (s) has prophesied this quality of Abu Dharr and said that Abu Dharr would perform a great role in this matter and will remain steadfast even in the face of severe persecution which he had to bear. The Prophet said: "There is nobody more truthful than Abu Dharr between the canopy of the sky and the carpet of the Earth".1 In the elucidation of this hadith Allamah Subaiti writes: “The Holy Prophet addressing his companions said, "O my companions! Who is one out of you who will meet me on the Day of Reckoning in the same condition in which I leave him in the world?” On hearing this everyone kept quiet, except Abu Dharr who spoke that it was he. The Holy Prophet said, "No doubt! You are true". After that he added, "O my companions! Remember what I am telling you. There is no man between the Earth and the sky more truthful than Abu Dharr".2 Allamah Majlisi has written some narratives after having quoted the above mentioned tradition in his book Hayat ul-Qulub. Ibn Babwayh has narrated on reliable authority that somebody asked Imam al-Sadiq if Abu Dharr was better than the Ahlul Bayt of the Holy Prophet or otherwise. The Imam said, "How many months are there in a year?" He answered, "Twelve". The Imam said, "How many of these months are respectable and sanctified?" He said, "Four months? The Imam asked, "Is Ramadhan also included in those four months?" He said "No". The Imam asked “Is Ramzan better or those four months?" He answered, "The month of Ramzan is better". The Imam said, “The same is the case with us, the Ahlul Bayt. You cannot compare anybody with us". One day Abu Dharr was sitting in the company of people who were describing the virtues of this nation. Abu Dharr said, "Ali is best of all in this nation, and he is the apportioner of Heaven and Hell, the Siddiq and Farooq of the ummah and, the divine proof for this nation". Hearing it from him those hypocrites turned their faces from him and refuting his statement called him a liar. At once Abu Amamah rose from there, went to the Holy Prophet and told him what Abu Dharr had said, and how that group had refused to accept it. The Holy Prophet (s) said, "There is no man between the Earth and the sky more truthful than Abu Dharr". The same book has narrated on another authority that somebody asked Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq (a) if that was an authentic hadith wherein the Holy Prophet (s) has declared like this. The Imam said, "Yes". He said, "Then what positions do the Holy Prophet, Ali, Imam Hasan and Imam Husayn hold?" The Imam replied, "We are like the month of Ramadhan which contains one such night the worship of which is equal to that of one thousand months while the rest of the companions are like the respected month in relation to other months, and nobody can be compared with us, the Ahlul Bayt". It becomes as clear as day light from the above mentioned hadith of the Holy Prophet that Abu Dharr was second to none in truthfulness. The commentary and the elucidation of the same hadith as made by Subaiti, describes that Abu Dharr will leave the world in the same condition, in which the Prophet had left him, and will see him in the same condition in the Hereafter. If it is looked into deeply, Abu Dharr's firm stand on the path which had been strengthened by the Holy Prophet (s) reveals his important virtue. Scholars agree on the point that Abu Dharr did not swerve an inch from the path of the Holy Prophet. After the Prophet even a companion like Salman was forced to swear allegiance and was so much beaten in the masjid one day that his neck became swollen. But Abu Dharr was never found silent." https://www.al-Islam.org/the-great-companion-of-Prophet-Abu-dharr/chapter-6 Interestingly, a similar hadith which mentions Abu Dharr (رضي الله عنه) as Isa (عليه السلام) of Ummah is also present in Sahih Tirmidhi.
  3. Surah An-Nisa, Verse 150: إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَكْفُرُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَرُسُلِهِ وَيُرِيدُونَ أَن يُفَرِّقُوا بَيْنَ اللَّهِ وَرُسُلِهِ وَيَقُولُونَ نُؤْمِنُ بِبَعْضٍ وَنَكْفُرُ بِبَعْضٍ وَيُرِيدُونَ أَن يَتَّخِذُوا بَيْنَ ذَٰلِكَ سَبِيلًا Surely those who disbelieve in Allah and His apostles and (those who) desire to make a distinction between Allah and His apostles and say: We believe in some and disbelieve in others, and desire to take a course between (this and) that. (English - Shakir) Surah An-Nisa, Verse 151: أُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْكَافِرُونَ حَقًّا وَأَعْتَدْنَا لِلْكَافِرِينَ عَذَابًا مُّهِينًا These it is that are truly unbelievers, and We have prepared for the unbelievers a disgraceful chastisement. (English - Shakir) These two verses are giving a precise answer to your question.
  4. Yes you two are the genuine believers, be happy with your emaan. May Almighty Lord increase your emaan I am a very happy horse worshipper or hero or alam worshipper or Abbas or Ali (or name any one else) worshipper. May Almighty Lord grasp/make accountable you two on the day of judgement. I will be standing as victim and will put my case to Him (In-sha Allah)
  5. Shiachat is always famous for unique thoughts, there are many who challenge the work of "more learned" Shia. I don’t really need to tell my madhab, you already figured it out, hero worshipping,
  6. Every martyr of Karbala has a unique status. How blessed are they whom Imams salute as Assalamo Alaika Ya Ansaara Rasoolillah, wa Ya Ansaara Amiril Mo'mineen, wa Ya Ansaara Syeda Fatima s.a etc. God few pages back and see the post where I have quoted the hadith,
  7. Abul Fadl means father of a son named Fadl who was martyred in Karbala. It means Abbas (عليه السلام) has a son, who is the son of Prophet Isa (عليه السلام)?
  8. See the referred article at www.al-Islam.org I am only bound to accept & obey the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and the Ulil Amr, I cannot accept the thoughts which says Ulil Azm Prophets are above Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) or that every Prophet is above them. Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) are the bearers of the minniyat of Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) therefore they are representing Prophet, they are the ulil amr and as per the law of the religion which is perfected and completed by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), every believer including every Prophet have to obey Prophet and the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام)
  9. Who was Abbas (عليه السلام)? Perhaps you would like to see him as brother, alamdar of Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) But I see him as back bone of Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) and the words of Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) are sufficient which he said about Hazrat Abbas (عليه السلام). He is the back bone of Imam Hussain (عليه السلام), don't you realize it!!!!!
  10. So what should I do, listen or see any hadith and stop contemplating on it? Like you A Ghayr-e-Ma'soom, with his struggle and enormous jihad and self purification, reach to a level where Hazrat Madinatul Ilm (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) start mentioning him as Isa of the Ummah in modesty, its a great achievement, a great merit, a fezeelat worth mentioning.
  11. So you think Prophet Isa (عليه السلام) has sacrificed his life in obeying Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)
  12. I am not interpreting and have not interpreted any hadith. Just shared couple of hadith here which mentioning Abu Dharr (رضي الله عنه) as Isa of the Ummah,
  13. This is the very first as well as last answer for every thing. Indeed Only He is the One who knows best.
  14. May the curse of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) be upon liars.
  15. Yes, Do you have doubt on His Supreme Knowledge?
  16. Complaint to Rasool Allah (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) I am just a hero worshipper
  17. No I worship of Hazrat Abbas as per you and allegedly my kalima should be like this "La ilaha illa Abbas"
  18. Are you talking about Isa ((عليه السلام)) of the Ummah I.e. Abu Dharr (رضي الله عنه) or are you talking about Isa ibn Maryam?
  19. Another fazeelat of Hazrat Abbas (عليه السلام) is that he offered the sacrifice of his two sons in Karbala for Imam Hussain (عليه السلام) Al Maalo Wal Banoona Zeenatul Hayatid-Duniya Wal Baqiyat-us-Salehaato Khayrun Enda Rabbeka Thawaban Wa Khayrun Amala
  20. ok, hero worshipping, invent a new name like Nusayri's. What name would you like to give a hero worshipper like me?
  21. Another Fazeelat of Hazrat Abbas (عليه السلام) is that he is the alamdar of the army of Islam. He has played the same role which Imam Ali (عليه السلام) used to play for Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and this is what makes the difference between Abbas (عليه السلام) and rest of the Army of Islam.
  22. Do you accept the ahadith quoted earlier? If yes then we can move forward. Otherwise you along with reformist are free to believe as I am worshipping Abbas (عليه السلام)
  23. you are really entertaining me. Where I am saying some one is greater or someone is lesser? Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) & Prophet Isa (عليه السلام) are Prophets, every believer have to accept them as Prophets and obedience of Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) and Ulil Amr (asws) is obligatory on every believer.
  24. Why not you simply answer the two questions, do you accept the two ahadith quoted? I am not talking about any derivation, just let me know whether you accept those two ahadith or not?
