    Thanks for your help brother, here though would الكفارة not mean the Islamic reparation?
     
    I wonder if there are any similar rulings that have been issued by the Maraja.

    A few of the fatawa of the contemporary and classical 'ulema are listed here. Just to clarify for those who are saying that the sentence must be delivered by an islamic court, Sayyid Khoei and others have ruled that executing the one who insults the Messenger (sa) is wajib on the one who hears the insult and there is no need for a ruler or jurist or trial etc to hand out the sentence.

    the-truth123 got a reaction from Muslim2010 in The Ahl Al-Bayt Comprises, Whom Exactly?   
    Thank you for the helpful replies and the narrations. I've been looking further into this and have found another sunni hadith al kisa narration at the end of which the Prophet prays that Allah purify these under the cloak, his ahl al bayt, and then Umm Salamah says: "And I, O Messenger of Allah?", and the Prophet replies, "And you". It's clear that the Umm Salamah is just asking to be included in the Prophet's prayer, and the Prophet accepts this, he does not however accept that she is a part of the Ahl al Bayt and neither is Umm Salamah asking this.
     
    But consider yourself in the position of someone who doesn't believe that the Five [a] are exclusively the ahl al bayt; then you would look at this narration and assume that the Prophet is in fact meaning to say that Umm Salamah is a part of the ahl al bayt. So, considering that narrating "by meaning", and not word-for-word, is valid, it's not unlikely at all that some people would have narrated ahadith like this stating that Umm Salamah specifically asked whether she was a part of the ahl, or that the Prophet said that Umm Salamah is part of the ahl al bayt, or that she is "inshaAllah" a part, simply because these people may well have sincerely believed that to be the true meaning of Umm Salamah's/the Prophet's words, and they are relaying what they assumed to be the true import of the hadith. So as far as they are concerned, they aren't lying and are relaying the Prophetic tradition by meaning as opposed to verbatim which still constitutes a valid transmission.
     
    This is further corroborated when taking into account just how many alternate wordings there are; it's clear mistakes were made, and things were added or subtracted to the narrations.
     
    Also, if I'm not mistaken, only those ahadith where the Prophet says "yes, inshaAllah" are considered properly Sahih. The ones where the Prophet explicitly states that she is a part of his ahl are defective.
     
    And, I've also come across ahadith where IIRC Umm Salamah goes under the cloak along with the Prophet, Fatima, Hassan and Hussain. Interestingly in this particular hadith, Ali is excluded. There is no doubt that this alteration is there to accommodate for those fabrications which said that the Prophet's wife entered along with Ali, which was unthinkable as they are na-mahrams. The alteration legitimises the hadith and makes it more acceptable.

    Another point to add is as someone told me, the Umayyads and the Abbasids would have hated for the supreme merit of having verse 33:33 revealed in one's honour to belong exclusively to Imam Ali and his family. They would wish for nothing more than for the scope of the term ahl al bayt to be widened to include as many others as possible to diminish the value and exclusivity of the merit. They would also love for it to be expanded to include their tribes as well because that would be seen as giving them some sort of legitimacy. And indeed as such, many major scholars in those days included the entirety of Banu Hashim, or the entirety of Banu Mutallib, or even the entirety of Quraysh, in the Ahl al Bayt.

    the-truth123 reacted to Haydar Husayn in The Question Of Succession   
    It wasn't much of an election. It was a small gathering, comprised mostly of the Ansar, that only included 3 muhajirs: Abu Bakr, `Umar, and Abu `Ubayda. The vast majority of the Muslims were outside of Madina, and didn't have a clue what was going on. Most of them had only recently converted anyway, so they only had a vague idea of the religion in the first place (even close Sahaba were often ignorant of rather basic element of fiqh). So really, it's not what the whole Ummah did that you have to look at, but only what was going on within Madina. Now, we know from the Qur'an that there were plenty of hypocrites in Madina. Some people even had to be bribed with money in order to 'strengthen their faith' (this is also in the Qur'an).
    Arabia at that time was very tribal. Therefore the appointment of `Ali (as) could very easily have been seen as the Prophet (pbuh) simply favouring his cousin and son-in-law. Most Sahaba probably didn't think that everything the Prophet (pbuh) said and did was divinely approved (in fact, Sunnis still don't believe this). `Umar openly questioned the Prophet (pbuh) at Hudaibiya after all, and there are many other instances, for example the Ansar questioning the Prophet's distribution of war booty.
    When you take all this into consideration, is it really so unlikely that the Prophet's order may have been disobeyed?
    By the way, I mentioned the three muhajirs who were at Saqifa: Abu Bakr, `Umar, and Abu `Ubayda. Coincidently, `Aisha daughter of Abu Bakr, claimed that these are the three men the Prophet (pbuh) would have appointed as his successors if he had to nominate them. What a stroke of good fortune it was that these were the three who just so happened to be at that meeting. Therefore the only viable candidates were present, and it didn't matter than the Prophet's family (or anyone else for that matter) weren't. `Ali (as) clearly had a different view, but probably he just didn't know what he was talking about, or was power hungry, or something.

    Who decides if a narrator is reliable or not? Scholars who already have a certain bias. Not to mention that the primary narrators of these ahadith, namely the Sahaba, are basically all considered reliable by Sunnis. So the fabrications could have come from certain Sahaba themselves, or later narrators.
