    Hamza ibn Ali got a reaction from SoRoUsH in Jesus (as) was Born in Kufa!   
    This is Hadith 111 of Volume 8 of Kitab al-Kafi. This Hadith has the same chain as hadiths 108-110 that come before it. Allamah al-Majlisi graded hadiths 108-110 daeef, so he definitely made a mistake in grading this one saheeh when it has the same chain. Good catch!

    Salam,
    I assume what you're asking is for a website which presents a hadith and then gives you the grading based on the opinions of our scholars. The website thaqalayn.net has all 8 volumes of Al-Kafi translated (although sometimes the translation is poor) with hadith gradings provided at the bottom from Allāmah Majlisi's Mir’at al-‘Uqool. Please note that you will come across hadiths you don't understand or seem bizarre as with any hadith collection. These hadiths have been explained by our scholars in their books. Also note that any hadith which contradicts the Quran must be rejected. Sometimes Allāmah al-Majlisi gets a grading wrong (for example there's a hadith that says the Quran was revealed with 17,000 verses and he grades it as Sahih but after a careful study of the chain it is actually Daeef) and sometimes the website itself misses a hadith entirely or attributes a grading to the wrong hadith. This is why it's good to have a copy or scan of Mir’at al-‘Uqool open next to you just to check that the gradings are correct and to read Al-Majlisi's enlightening commentary. If you don't already know Arabic, I'd really recommend spending time learning Arabic rather than waiting for translations of Shi'i texts.
    P.S. Bihar al-Anwar only has some 4000 (according to Asif Muhseni) reliable hadiths and it is filled with nonsensical hadiths so please do not just pull a hadith from there and say “Well it's in Bihar so it must have some merit.” Allāmah al-Majlisi's goal in collecting Bihar al-Anwar was to collect ANY hadith he could for the purpose of preserving as many as he could for later scholars to analyze. He was NOT collecting hadiths he thought were reliable. He even includes hadiths narrated by Nasibis (Ahlulbayt haters). So again Bihar is hardly valuable for laymen and you probably shouldn't use it as a source. But if you know Arabic and want to read only the reliable hadiths in Bihar, Asif Muhseni has a book called Al-Mu‘tabar min Bihar al-Anwar which includes every mu‘tabar (reliable) hadith from Bihar.
    Wassalam.

    Hamza ibn Ali reacted to Mohamad Abdel-Hamid in How can I check the authenticity of our hadiths ?   
    What Sheikh as-Saduq is practically saying is that if we take in consideration everything that the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) has said in his life, then it would have been in the Qur'an, since he only speaks the truth; and also there are many times when Jibreel (عليه السلام) spoke to him but it wasn't put in the Qur'an. So, if ahadith were meant to be in the Qur'an, it would have been 17,000 verses instead of ~6000 or so verses.

    Shaykh Asif Muhseni and Shaykh Bahbudi are two contemporary hadith scholars who have books grading hadiths (Muhseni has Mu‘tabar min Bihar al-Anwar and Mu‘jam al-Ahadith al-Mu‘tabara and Bahbudi has Sahih al-Kafi). If you want to see only reliable hadiths I recommend Mu‘jam al-Ahadith al-Mu‘tabara by Shaykh Asif Muhseni. He compiles many hadiths (only reliable ones) from different books into one nice book. He also does this for Bihar al-Anwar (as mentioned earlier, his book Mu‘tabar min Bihar al-Anwar is only the reliable ahadith from Bihar). And Allāmah al-Majlisi's Mir’at al-‘Uqool is one of the most valuable pieces of hadith scholarship ever. Again thaqalayn.net is a great resource.
