  1. We need to return to the Quran and make it our imam and filter everthing through it. The scholars of today have become the priests and rabbis of the older nations. In the name of "Sunna" they justify all sorts. They place probabilistic hadith statements over mutawatir divine text and interpret the Quran through them. Neo-Mutazilism is the way forward - only accept Mutawatir hadith found with all sects and prioritise the Quran over them all. Everything else is in the realms of speculation and probability, as the Quran says, speculation (dhann) is no substitute for certainty (yaqin). C
  2. So they fabricated the shaking mountain hadith were they gave titles al-Shahid al-Siddiq to others. Sometimes they say it was mount Uhud or Hira that shook, and even sometimes it has the ten promised paradise on it! It's all Umayyad fabrications which the speakers today still teach from the pulpits. Imam al-Baqir in my previous posts has told us this is forged. https://sunnah.com/bukhari/62/50 https://sunnah.com/abudawud/42/56 https://sunnah.com/muslim/44/78 It's very strange how early Sunnis like ibn abi al-Hadid had no problem narrating that Mu'awiyah paid people to write
  3. Imam ‘Ali said: It is strange that during his lifetime he wished to be released from the caliphate but he confirmed it for the other one after his death. No doubt these two shared its udders strictly among themselves.[1] Imam Muhammad ibn ‘Ali al-Baqir said: They (the people of the contract/agreement) confused the people who ratified them and turned them on their backs, and took it (Caliphate) out from its origin (Amir-ul-Momineenasws) from where Allahazwj had Made it to be. And they argued against the Helpers of ourasws rights and ourasws arguments. They pacified them to Abu
  4. Talha Bin Ubeydullah – and he used to be called ‘the shrewd one of Qureiysh’ – said, ‘What should we make of what Abu Bakr and Umar had claimed and their companions had ratified and testified on their words, the day they brought you when (the situation) deteriorated and there was a rope around yourasws neck. So they said to you "Pay allegience!" You argue with what you argued with from your virtues and precedence, so they agreed with you. claimed that he had heard from the Prophetsaww having said that: ‘Allahazwj has Refused to Gather together for usasws the Peopleasws of the Household, the
  5. Reported from Sulaiman al-Taymi (student of Qays), from Abdullah bin Aws: “Abu Bakr asked Ali to support him, but Ali refused, then Umar went toward Ali's house with a burning torch. At the door he met Fatima who said to him: "Do you intend to burn the door of my house?" Umar said: "Yes”! (Ansab al-Ashraaf, by al-Baladhuri Ahmed bin Yahya bin Jaber al-Baghdadi, v1, p 586) al-Siyuti was among the ones who reported that Abu Bakr regretted what he had done to Lady Fatima (peace be upon her) as he said: “I wish I had not searched for Fatima’s house, and had not sent men to har
  6. For the Shia the prophet (a) telling the people that Imam 'Ali (a) was closer to the believers than their own selves was enough. Imam 'Ali also reminded people of this event over 20 years later, he was known as "Sahib al-Rubha" named after the place where he would remind the people of Ghadir. Here is both hadiths from Zayd ibn Arqam who also narrates about Ghadir in Sahih Muslim! Zayd ibn Arqam narrates: On his way back from Farewell Pilgrimage, the Prophet (s) stayed at Ghadir Khumm and commanded his companions to sweep and clean the ground under the trees, and then delivered a speech
  7. It is a test but keep in mind sometimes "secularized" Muslims can be more religious than "religious" Muslims. Many of these so called representatives of the religion are wolves in sheeps clothing which only puts Muslims off. Leave people to their own understanding and focus on your own lot is my advice in these times..
  8. You can find the house burning narrations by al-Baladhuri and al-Tabari clearly in Sunni books. Twelvers and Zaydis also have their own versions for this event to be considered widely reported. It is clearly stated in Shia sources that Imam 'Ali did react and show his muscle however decided that wisdom would be the better course of action in the end. He himself states that he feared further instability and apostasy. Many Imams (a) refused fighting when they were weakened like Imam al-Hasan (a). • al-Baladhuri, reported from Sulaiman al-Taymi, from Abdullah bin Aon – who are believed to be T
  9. Imam Muhammad ibn ali-Baqir said commenting on the narration of Imam ‘Ali different types of narration appearing in his time: And sometimes you will see a man who has been mentioned as being good – and he is pious and truthful – would narrate a great Hadith which would contain strange virtues of some of the past governors, although Allah never Created from it anything at all, and he would consider it to be the truth for he would have heard it numerous times from the ones who are not known to be liars, nor for lack of piety. And he would be narrating from Ali ugly things, and from al-H
  10. Fatimi Imams did rise up against the Umayyads and Abbasids quite frequently and did form their own imamates for example the Idrisi dynasty in Morocco or the imamate in Yemen. One has to ask were they rising up to bolster the existing caliphates? Many Zaydi imams like Imam al Hadi ila Haqq declared themselves as imams openly and their imamate lasted for over a thousand years. Many of them migrated to declare their imamate. Take Imam al-Husayn (a), he rose up after the Kufans invited him to be their imam - read his letter to the Kufans and Basrans where he clearly explains what an imam is and
  11. There may have been those who believed in these doctrines but no mainstream Zaydi scholar past or present believed in these things - for example Imam al-Hadi ila al-Haqq (a), Imam Qasim al-Rassi (a) or even Imam al-Zayd (a) himself. These occultation doctrines are the work of corrupt followers of the imams which may have corrupted certain Zaydis at times. I suggest you try take from Zaydi sources for an authentic understanding. Traditionally it has to be a Fatimi who is just and knowledgable who is allowed to be the true Imam of the Muslims. There are some modern day Zaydi imams which have
  12. Probably more Jarudi you could say. As regards to ghaybah in the Twelver sense, no mainstream Zaydi would ever believe in this, only unless it was an imam going into hiding for a limited amount of time before an uprising. Our imams are humans and do not possess anything such as esoteric knowledge, extended age or knowledge of all languages etc Yes, al-Nafs al-Zakiyyah was a Mahdi/Qa'im as he rose up to the tyrants, although back then these terms were simply assigned to a member of the household who rose up. Even al-Husayn was called al-Mahdi and could be considered a Qa'im. In fact, if y
  13. Zaydi Tawhid is the same as normal tawhid. Allah is unlike anything else - he has no arms or body. There is no power but God but of course human beings have free will. You could say they are more "Mutazili" and verses of the throne are interpreted symbolically unlike some others who believe Allah literally sits on a throne (but without knowing how).
  14. the Holy Spirit in Islam is known as al-Ruh al-Quddus which means The Spirit of Purity. al-Ruh is a spirit (rih in Arabic means breeze) and al-Quddus is a name for God which means The Pure/Holy. The spirit is a creation of God/Allah and is totally under his command. It is mentioned in the Quran as descending upon Jesus (may Allah bless him) which inspired and supported him throughout his mission. There are other spirit discussed such as the al-Ruh al-Amin which is known as the truthful spirit. The other spirit is known as the al-ruh al-Amr which is the Spirit of the Divine Command which is bas
  15. Salaamun alaikum, I am Zaydi and there is no quick way to answer this question. Traditional Zaydis believe that Imam 'Ali (عليه السلام) and his sons Hasan (عليه السلام) and Husayn (عليه السلام) were explictly designated as imams to lead the Muslim community. After then they argue it should be for the most pious, just and learned member of the descendents of ahl al-Bayt. This is the real imam according to them. Trying to understand Zaydism from Sunnis will cause you difficulties and they will often quote rare opinions or texts which make Zaydis seem like Sunnis. I recommend you visit
