  1. Bismillah, Salamun Alaikum. May those in authority please close my account ? Reason for those who will post to ask: After reflection, I have created a higher end goal that needs less distraction and more focus. I hope to achieve it one day soon in my lifetime inshallah, and perhaps you can add a dua right now while reading this that I become successful and my difficulties are lessened. Indeed the dua of a brother for another comes in handy. Thanks to all the sincere people for sharing their wisdom, knowledge, news and information for the cause of education. Fi amanillah.
  2. I was wondering recently why Imam Mahdi [a] is called with the title of "Baqiatullah' which means remnant of Allah on Earth, if he is not the last Hujjah of Allah.
  3. I request you to download my anti ahmad hassan series and keep it in storage or perhaps reupload them, incase anything happens later on and the videos have to be removed. Also perhaps you could copy paste the 4 articles into a notepad or ms word, and keep them in storage too.

  4. She is a sister, not a brother. Look at her way of speech.
  5. I^^ really loved the hurf al jarr section. That means Ahmad Ismail doesn't even know the basics of arabic grammar. Im taking basics right now :> , that's how I understood about hurf jarr. You should really subtitle this if both your english and arabic is good, otherwise make someone do it. Then post it in their facebook pg and give the Christians of Najran a heart attack, "www.facebook.com/groups/452906904750054/"
  6. I am hoping he makes some propagation of the Ahlulbayt with his films, and introduce other famous people to their existence through his works. I think he said he wanted to work on something like that within the video.
  7. I believe the issue is with the "Ya" which makes them equal it to shirk.
  8. I would remove the 5 star rating feature of users in their profile, and replace it instead with a Like button, as we see below the posts, which the voters can remove at any time in the long term, just like in the posts, to affect overall standing. This would ensure that the subject user is not affected by the negative thinking of certain people for them, and he would only know how many people likes his works, which could even be zero, but it won't hurt him subconsciously like it would in the previous case. Also the 5 star rating equal a) a stereotype fixing for new comers to the person's profile, and the bad side of such a rating system is that it is done by only 1 or 2 individuals interested in such a system to set the mental image for the rest of visitors to come; and not done by the others. So it can be quite a biased image setting based on the opinions of a meager amount of individuals. b ] You cannot read the mind and heart of a user to give people the ability to permanently score the person by a few stars. It is unethical from what I understand and not on the path of Islam. Please reconsider switching the useless 5 star rating system of individuals, with a like button, as we see within posts. And it is not necessary, that people need to see who has given them a like, just the number would do fine, in case it leads to ego building, and hinders the muslim from his purer goal.
  9. The posters had "Ya Zaynab" . They're intention is that they do not hate the Ahlulbayt, but no one should do shirk by calling to other than Allah [this is the mentality they have created from their limited learning and upbringing]. Thinking from their perspective, would you understand their actions due to their intention, if that is the intention indeed?
  10. Bismillah, I did not know which section to post this, the mods can move it to its deserving location. "www.youtube.com/watch?v=OeZ2DT1yqh0" Please discuss the similarities and the contradiction with what we have known from our Ulemas.
  11. An Ansar called HusseinTheShortComer, whose deceptive Sheikh Tusi’s quotation we exposed in Episode 3 of the series, made a recent post in response to me over a particular challenge I give them often regarding how to identify the Imam. www.hashemstudios-board.com/viewtopic.php?f=140&t=7745 As you may notice, his arguments are not clear and are just a mess of random self made interpretations and opinions. I will try to dissect his statement a piece at a time so we can make some sense out of them all. To start off with, I had already posted this hadith against Ahmad Ismail in our forum long before I began to speak to him in our brief exchange in Paltalk. He surely talks as if he is the narrator himself and the hadith originates from him and we don't have access to it unless he reveals it. Let us test the above prerequisite for all of our Imams whether we can somehow gather a hadith or two in this regard: 2nd and 3rd Imam[a] Thiqat al-Islam, al-Kulayni , has mentioned: “Ameerul Mo’minin appointed al-Hasan as his successor, and he made al-Husayn, Muhammad (bin al-Hanafiya), all his (other) sons, the heads of his followers (Shi‘a), and his household as witnesses to the declaration of his will. Then he handed him the books (documents) and the weapons. He said to him: ‘O my son, Allah’s Apostle (a.s) had commanded me to appoint you as my successor and to hand over to you the books and the weapons which are with me. It is just as Allah’s Apostle had appointed me as his successor and handed his books and weapons over to me. And he commanded me to command you that, when death comes to you, you should hand them over to your brother al-Husayn.” [Al-Kulayni, Usool al-Kafi, vol. 1, pp. 297-298.] THE LIFE OF IMAM AL-HASAN AL-MUJTABA By:Baqir Shareef al-Qurashi Translation by: Jasim al-Rasheed ChapterXII: The Demise of the Truth Under Sub Chapter: Appointing al-Hasan as Imam 4th Imam[a] Imām al-Husayn appointed his son Zayn al-Ābidin, peace be on him, as an Imām and entrusted the Imāmate to him. Al-Zuhri reported: ‘I was with al-Husayn b. ‘Ali when ‘Ali b. al-Husayn al-Asghar (i.e., Zayn al-‘Ābidin) came in. So al-Husayn called him, embraced him, and kissed him between his eyes. I (i.e., al-Zuhri) turned to Imām al-Husayn and asked him: “Son of Allah’s Apostle, who will be the Imām after you?" Al-Husayn replied: ‘This son of mine, ‘Ali, will be the Imām. He is the father of the Imāms.’ [Roudāt al-Jannāt, pp. 247-248.] The life of Imām Zayn al ‘Abidin (A.S.) By Baqir Sharif al Qarashi Translated by Jasim al Rasheed CHAPTER V - HIS IMĀMATE Under Sub Chapter: His Textual Imāmate Al-Kafi Vol.1 H 785, Ch. 68, h 3 A number of our people has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Ali ibn al-Hakamfrom Sayf ibn ‘Amira from abu Bakr al-Hadrami from abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.) who has said the following. "When al-Husayn (a.s.) was about to leave for Iraq he entrusted ’Umm Salama (may Allah be pleased with her) with the books and directive will. When Ali ibn al-Husayn (a.s.) returned (to Madina) she delivered them to him.” 5th Imam [a] He(the 4th Imam), peace be on him, charged his son, al-Baqir, with the Imamate after him and designated him as the Imam. Al-Zuhri said: [i went to him to visit him. Then I said to him:] “If Allah's unavoidable order occurs, whom shall we follow after you ?” The Imam looked at me kindly and said to me: This son of mine, pointing to his son al-Baqir, for he is my trustee, my inheritor, and the container of my knowledge. He is the origin of knowledge and the one who will split it open.” “Will you not designate your eldest son ?” “Abu Abd Allah, oldness and youngness do not concern the Imamate. In this manner, Allah's Apostle, may Allah bless him and his family, nominated us. Thus, we have found it written in the tablet and the parchment.” “Son of the Apostle of Allah, did your Prophet entrust you to be the trustees (of authority) after him ?” “We have found twelve names in the parchment and the tablet. Their Imamate, their fathers' names, and their mothers' names have been written in the tablet. Then he said: ‘Seven of the trustees will come forth from the back of Mohammed, my son. Al-Mahdi will be one of them.’ [ Ithbat al-Hudat, vol.5, p.264.] Some prominent Shi’ites came to him. He told them about the Imamate of his son al-Baqir. He appointed him as the authority and leader for the community of his grandfather. Then he gave him a basket and a box in which were the prophets' heritage and the weapon and the books of the Apostle of Allah, may Allah bless him and his family. [ Ithbat al-Hudat, vol.5, p.268.] The Life of Imam Muhammad ibn 'Ali al-Baqir By Baqir Sharif al Qarashi Translated by Jasim al Rasheed Chapter 2 : (Under Sub Chapter:) His Designation for the Imamate of al-Baqir Al-Kafi Vol.1 H 787, Ch. 69, h 1 Ahmad ibn Idris has narrated from Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Jabbar from abu al-Qasim al-Kufi from Muhammad ibn Sahl from Ibrahim ibn abu al-Bilad from Isma’il ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Abdallah ibn Ali ibn al-Husayn from abu Ja‘far (a.s.) who has said the following. "When Ali ibn al-Husayn (a.s.) was about to leave this world he took out a basket or a box that was with him. He then said, "O Muhammad take this box. " The narrator has said that then he (Muhammad) took the box with four people. When The Imam (a.s.) died his sons came asking for the box and said, "Give us our share from the box." He (Muhammad) then said to them, "By Allah, there is nothing for you in it. Had there been anything for you he would not have given it to me." In the box there were the Armament of the Messenger of Allah and his books." 6th Imam[a] One of the traditions transmitted about the divine right to leadership (Imamate) of Ja’far bin Muhammad al-Sadiq (a.s.) is the authentic tradition which al-Kulayni reports in al-KÁfi, from Ali bin Ibrahim, from Muhammad bin Isa., from Yunus bin Abd al-Rahman, from Abd al-Aýla from Abu Abdillah al-Sadiq (a.s.) who said: ‘My father entrusted me with what was to be entrusted. When his time of death arrived, he said, “Call some witnesses for me.” So I invited four witnesses from the tribe of Quraysh, one of whom was Nafi’ the client of Abdullah bin Umar. My father then commanded me to write as follows: “This is what Ya’qub willed to his sons ‘O my children! Allah has indeed chosen this religion for you; so never die except as Muslims.’[sura al-Baqara verse 132.] Now Muhammad bin Ali wills to Ja’far bin Muhammad and commands him to enshroud him in the garment in which he (i.e. al-Baqir) prays the Friday prayers, to attire him in his turban, to make square his grave and to raise it to the measure of four fingers. To remove from him his old clothes at the time of burial…” then he said to the witnesses: “You can now depart, may Allah’s blessings be upon you all.” When the witnesses had left, I said to him, “Father, what was the reason that you called for witnesses?” He replied: “My son! I hated for you to feel helpless and powerless and that it be said that ‘he (al-Baqir) did not make his bequest to him (alSadiq)’, so I wanted this to serve as proof for you.” [Al Kafi Vol 1 pg 307.] A CONCISE TREATISE OF AUTHENTIC TRADITIONS REGARDING THE RIGHT TO DIVINE LEADERSHIP(IMÀMATE) OF THE TWELVE IMÀMS COMPILED BY THE LATE ÀYATULLAH AL-MIRZÀ JAWÀD AL-TABRÏZI. TRANSLATED BY AFZAL SUMÀR. PART TWO: TRADITIONS THAT SPECIFY EACH IMÀM INDIVIDUALLY. Al-Kafi Vol.1 H 790, Ch. 70, h 1 Al-Husayn ibn Muhammad has narrated from Mu‘alla ibn Muhammad from al-Washsha’from Aban ibn ‘Uthman from abu al-Sabbah al-Kinani who has said the following. "Abu Ja‘far (a.s.) looked at abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.) who was walking. The Imam (a.s.) said, ‘Do you see this (person)? This is of those about whom Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High, has said, "However, We have decided to grant a favor to the suppressed ones by appointing them leaders and heirs of the land," (28:5) Al-Kafi Vol.1 H 792, Ch. 70, h 3 Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Hisham ibn al-Muthanna from Sadir al-Sayrafi who has said that he heard abu Ja‘far (a.s.) say the following. "It is part of the success of a man to have a child who is similar to his father physically, ethically and in good characters. I do not know anyone more similar to me physically, ethically and in good characters than this son of mine, (meaning thereby abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.). Al-Kafi Vol.1 H 794, Ch. 70, h 5 Ahmad ibn Muhammad has narrated from Muhammad ibn Khalid from some of our people from Yunus ibn Ya‘qub from Tahir who has said the following. "Once I was in the presence of abu Ja‘far (a.s.) when Ja‘far (a.s.) came. Abu Ja‘far (a.s.) said, "This (Ja‘far ) is the best of the people." 7th Imam [a] From the traditions transmitted about the explicit designation of Imam Musa bin Ja’far to divine leadership is the authentic tradition reported by al-Kulayni in al- Kafi, from Ali bin Ibrahim, from his father, from Ibn Abi Najran, from Safwan bin Jammal from Abu Abdillah al-Sadiq (a.s.). Mansur bin Hazim said to him: ‘May my parents be your sacrifice, indeed, people are born and they die. Therefore if you were to pass away, then who would be the Imam after you?’ Abu Abdillah replied: ‘If that were to happen then the Imam will be this companion of yours’ and he tapped the right shoulder of Abu al-Hasan (al-Kadhim) – in what I recollect – and he (al-Kadhim) was five years old on that day and Abdullah bin Ja’far was sitting there with us.

Al-Kafi Vol.1 H 809, Ch. 71, h 12 Ahmad ibn Idris has narrated from Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Jabbar from Safwan from ibnMuskan from Sulayman ibn Khalid who has said the following. "Abu ‘Abdallah (a.s.) one day called abu al-Hassan (a.s.) while we were in his presence and said to us, "You must take hold of this man. He, by Allah, will be your Master after me." 8th Imam[a] Regarding the explicit designation of Imam Ali bin Musa al-Ridha (a.s.) to the office of divine leadership there is the following authentic report from MuÎammad bin Yahya, who reports from Ahmad bin Muhammad, who reports from Ibn Mahbub, who in turn reports from al-Husayn bin Na’im al-Sahhaf, who said: ‘Hisham bin al-Hakam, ‘Ali bin Yaqtin and I were in Baghdad when ‘Ali bin Yaqtin said; “I was sitting in the company of al-‘Abd al-Salih (i.e. Imam al-Kadhim (a.s.) when his son ‘Ali came in. Al-Kadhim said to me: ‘O ‘Ali bin Yaqtin, ‘Ali is the best of my children and I have conferred on him my epithet.” Suddenly Hisham bin al Hakam struck his forehead with the palm of his hand and said: ‘Woe unto you, how do you say this?’ So ‘Ali bin Yaqtin replied: ‘By Allah! I heard it from him just as I have reported.’ At this Hisham bin al-Hakam said: ‘He (al-Kadhim) was actually informing you that the divine leadership would devolve on him (al-Ridha) after him (i.e. after the demise of al-Kadhim).

TRANSLATED BY AFZAL SUMÀR. PART TWO: TRADITIONS THAT SPECIFY EACH IMÀM INDIVIDUALLY. AlKafi Vol.1 H 818, Ch. 72, h 5 Ahmad ibn Idris has narrated from Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Jabbar from al-Hassan ibn al-Husayn al-Lu’lu’i from Yahya ibn ‘Amr from Dawud al-Raqqi who has said the following. "I said to abu al-Hassan aMusa (a.s.), ‘I have grown old and my bones are weakening. I asked your father (a.s.) and he informed me about you. Would you also inform me (about the Imam after you)." The Imam (a.s.) said, "This abu al-Hassan al-Rida." 9th Imam[a] Al-Kulayni reports an authentic tradition in al-Kafi with respect to the right to divine leadership (Imamate) of Muhammad bin ‘Ali al-Jawad (a.s.) from Muhammad bin Yahya, who reports it from Ahmad bin Muhammad, who in turn reports it from Ma’mar bin Khallad, who said: ‘I heard al-Ridha (a.s.) mention something and then he said; “What is your need for that? Here is Abu Ja’far! I have bestowed on him my status [Translator’s note: The literal translation of the phrase would have been; ‘I have seated him in my place.’] and rendered to him my position.” Then he said; “Indeed the young ones from among us, the people (worthy) of the House of the Prophet, inherit from the older ones, being exactly identical to each other.” [Al-Kafi vol 1 pg 320] A CONCISE TREATISE OF AUTHENTIC TRADITIONS REGARDING THE RIGHT TO DIVINE LEADERSHIP(IMÀMATE) OF THE TWELVE IMÀMS COMPILED BY THE LATE ÀYATULLAH AL-MIRZÀ JAWÀD AL-TABRÏZI. TRANSLATED BY AFZAL SUMÀR. PART TWO: TRADITIONS THAT SPECIFY EACH IMÀM INDIVIDUALLY. Al-Kafi Vol.1 H 836, Ch. 73, h 7 Ahmad has narrated from Muhammad ibn Ali from ibn Qiyama al-Wasiti who has said the following. "Once I went to see Ali ibn Musa (a.s.). (During the meeting) I asked him, "Can there be two Imams?" He replied, "No, but that one of them must remain silent." I then said to him, "This applies to you. You are the Imam and there is no silent Imam with you." At that time his son abu Ja‘far was not yet born. He said to me, "By Allah, Allah will make an Imam from me to establish the truth and the people of truth and banish falsehood and the people of falsehood.” One year thereafter abu Ja‘far (a.s.) was born. Ibn Qiyama belonged to the Waqifi sect." Here I would like you to focus on what the successor son is supposed to be – the Silent Imam, who does not demand any allegiance at the time of his father. Is Ahmad Ismail the silent Imam today, if at all the 12th Imam[a] had to have a successor? Or is he screaming for Bay’ah ? Ghaybah Nu’mani Chapter 13: Al-Qa'im’s aspects and deeds (7) Muhammad bin Yahya narrated from Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Eessa from al-Hasan bin Mahboob from Iss~haq bin Ghalib that Abu Abdullah as-Sadiq (s) had said in one of his speeches when describing the imams: “…An imam is entrusted with the position of his father. He keeps silent during the lifetime of his father. But when the will of Allah determines to bring the father to the better world, the son becomes ready to receive the order of Allah. Allah will entrust the son after the death of the father with His religion and make him the authority over His people and the guardian on His earth….” These clear hadiths prove that all the Ansari interpretations of Yamani being the successor of the 12th Imam[a], the First Mahdi and yet demanding Bay’ah and allegiance before the 12th Imam[a]’s reappearance , are bogus, worth naught in the face of these clear narrations stating the conditions of a succeeding Hujjah. Ahmad Ismail is just someone who tries to grab as many titles as he can and merge them all together. And we will provide a new title stolen soon following after. 10th Imam[a] From the traditions which stipulate the right to divine leadership of Imam ‘Ali bin Muhammad al-Hadi (a.s.) is the authentic tradition which al-Kulayni reports in al- Kafi from ‘Ali bin Ibrahim, from his father, from Isma’il bin Mihran who said: ‘When Muhammad bin ‘Ali al-Jawad left Medina for Baghdad for the first time, I said to him at the time of his departure; “May I be sacrificed for you, but I fear for the safety of your life in this journey, so who has been bequeathed the responsibility of divine leadership after you?” He turned to me with a smiling face and said; “The disappearance which you fear is not destined for this year.” When he left for Baghdad for the second time at the behest of Mu’tasim, I came to him and said: “May I be sacrificed for you, but you are leaving us, so inform me about the one who has been bequeathed the responsibility of the Imamate after you.” This time the Imam wept so hard that his beard got drenched with his tears. He turned towards me and said: “This journey is to be feared, the responsibility of the Imamate after me will be with my son ‘Ali.” [Al-Kafi vol 1 pg 323] A CONCISE TREATISE OF AUTHENTIC TRADITIONS REGARDING THE RIGHT TO DIVINE LEADERSHIP(IMÀMATE) OF THE TWELVE IMÀMS COMPILED BY THE LATE ÀYATULLAH AL-MIRZÀ JAWÀD AL-TABRÏZI. TRANSLATED BY AFZAL SUMÀR. PART TWO: TRADITIONS THAT SPECIFY EACH IMÀM INDIVIDUALLY. 11th Imam[a] Explicitly clear traditions have been reported about the divine leadership of Imam al-Hasan bin ‘Ali al- ‘Askariy (a.s.). From among them is the report which al-Kulayni reports in al-Kafi from ‘Ali bin Muhammad, from Muhammad bin Ahmad al- Nahdiy, from Yahya bin Yasar al-Qanbariy who said: ‘Abu al-Íasan (i.e ‘Ali bin Muhammad al-Hadi) willed to his son al-Hasan four months before his death and called me and a group of his clients to witness that.’ [Al-KÁfi vol 1 pg 325.] A CONCISE TREATISE OF AUTHENTIC TRADITIONS REGARDING THE RIGHT TO DIVINE LEADERSHIP(IMÀMATE) OF THE TWELVE IMÀMS COMPILED BY THE LATE ÀYATULLAH AL-MIRZÀ JAWÀD AL-TABRÏZI. TRANSLATED BY AFZAL SUMÀR. PART TWO: TRADITIONS THAT SPECIFY EACH IMÀM INDIVIDUALLY. Al-Kafi Vol.1 H 859, Ch. 75, h 13 Ali ibn Muhammad has narrated from the person he mentioned from Muhammad ibn Ahmad al-‘Alawi from Dawud ibn al-Qasim who has said the following. "I heard abu al-Hassan (a.s.) saying, ‘The succeeding (Imam) after me will be al-Hassan. How will your dealing be with the succeeding (Imam) of the succeeding (Imam)?" I then said, "Why will that be so, may Allah take my souls in service for your cause?" He said, "You will not see him in person. It will not lawful for you to pronounce his name." I then asked, "How then will we speak of him?" He said, "Say, ‘The Divine Authority from the family of Muhammad (s.a)." 12th Imam [a] Regarding his explicit designation to the station of divine leadership, there is the tradition transmitted by Shaykh al-Saduq from Muhammad bin ‘Ali bin Majilawayh, from MuÎammad bin Yahya al-Attar, from Ja’far bin Muhammad bin Malik al-Fazariy Mu’awiya bin Hakim and Muhammad bin Ayyub bin Nuh and Muhammad bin ‘Uthman al-‘Amriy,[ Translator’s note: This particular gentleman was the second special deputy of the Twelfh ImÁm (a.s.) during his minor occultation.] that they said: “We were a group of forty men in the house of Abu MuÎammad al-Hasan bin ‘Ali (a.s.) when he presented to us his son and said: ‘This is your Imam after me and my successor to you. Obey him and do not divide and disunite after me in matters of your religion, for you will be destroyed. However, you will not see him after today.” They said; “We departed from his presence and a few days later Abu Muhammad passed away.”[ Kamal al-Din vol 2, pg 435.] A CONCISE TREATISE OF AUTHENTIC TRADITIONS REGARDING THE RIGHT TO DIVINE LEADERSHIP(IMÀMATE) OF THE TWELVE IMÀMS COMPILED BY THE LATE ÀYATULLAH AL-MIRZÀ JAWÀD AL-TABRÏZI. TRANSLATED BY AFZAL SUMÀR. PART TWO: TRADITIONS THAT SPECIFY EACH IMÀM INDIVIDUALLY. Al-Kafi Vol.1 H 864, Ch. 76, h 5 Al-Husayn ibn Muhammad al-Ash‘ari from Mu‘alla ibn Muhammad from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Abdallah who has said the following. "(A letter) came out from abu Muhammad (a.s.) when al-Zubayri, may Allah condemn him, was killed. It said, "This is the recompense for those who disregard Allah in the matters of the people whom He has appointed as His authority over the creatures. He thought he could murder me and I do not have a son. How did he experience the power of Allah in the matter. A boy was born to him and he named him M.H.M.D. in the year two hundred fifty six. (Abbreviation stands for the name of the Imam because of the prohibition to pronounce it in a complete word.)." Now, we request again, provide us with the indication from the father, the 12th Imam[a] over the son Ahmad Ismail proving his Imamate, like it has been the case and requirement for the rest. The 12th Imam[a] was in contact with shias through his 4 special representatives for around 70 years called the Ghaybah Sugrah. This contact was more than any of the other 11 Imam’s lifespan. Yet we have indication from those 11 Imams for their successor sons whether the atmosphere was of freedom or imprisonment. Indicate to us even a single letter or hadith from the 12th Imam[a] regarding the successor, Ahmad Ismail, for every Imam[a] I showed you have passed the test of the criteria. If you fail, that means the 12th Imam[a] has not appointed any successor as of today. Rather if there is any –he would appoint after his reappearance for countless hadiths that we have shared in our previous articles and series state not to follow any Qaim or claimant before the reappearance of the 12th Imam[a]. If you cannot produce the indication from the 12th Imam[a], it means your Ahmad Ismail is a fake claimant crying for Bay’ah while he is supposed to remain the Silent Imam today according to the traditions concerning the succeeding claimant. Now since HusseinTheShortComer, he was not able to produce the clear evidence we required for the acceptance of any Imam –the father’s indication, he thought he could take us on a ride in his boat of dreamy interpretations to make some sense of “Imam” Ahmad Hassan’s legitimacy. Let us explore them: It is quite well known who is this Qaim or Mahdi when referred in any tradition [we have taken care of it in our first article over this issue, please refer for the proofs], and whose life and identity had to be protected so stringently that even his name was forbidden to be pronounced - up till his reappearance, & for whose protection Allah put him into the Ghaybah. If the people would have got any indication towards his weherabouts, they would cut him to peaces for they had heard from the Prophet’s time itself about this Mahdi, the 9th from the Children of Hussein[a], & the last of the 12 Imams, who would rise after his disappearance and spread justice from the east to west in the World and bring an end to corruption. But the Short Comer tries to emphasize that the Mahdi whom the people are trying to identify and eliminate since the era of our Aimmahs is none other that Ahmad Ismail [i.e. our Imam who subscribed to Facebook] today, by the following points of his: Already answered in Article 2 which discloses who the Uknown Imam is. It refers to the 12th Imam[a], and the matter has been made clear. Here is our friend now trying to gift a new title to Ahmad Ismail. Ahmad Ismail is the Dabatul Ardh, the Creature of the Earth. And he is now trying to justify it by connecting one-two similar words between Yamani and Dabatul Ardh in different hadiths. Now it is time to expose where these dreamers and their Ahmad Ismail stand in terms of reliability for good. In the following traditions we show that this title, like the title of Amir al Mo’mineen, is only restricted to Imam Ali[a], and it cannot be shared. Dabatul Ardh Chapter Thirty-four: Rajat (The Return) Pg 341 30- Tafsir Qummi: Ubayy has narrated from Ibne Abu Umair from Abu Basir from Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) that he said: “Once the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.) came to Amirul Momineen (a.s.) while the latter was asleep in the mosque; he had made a heap of sand and rested his head on it. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) shook his leg and said: “O Daabbatullaah! Get up!” A companion who witnessed this asked, “O Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.)! Shall we address each other with this name?” He replied, “No, by Allah it is restricted only for him (Ali) and he is the Daabba that Allah has mentioned in His book…” “And when the word shall come to pass against them, We shall bring forth for them a creature from the earth that shall talk to them, because people did not believe in Our communications.” (Surah Naml 27:82) Then the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.) said: O Ali , in the last period of time the Almighty Allah will bring you out in the best form and you will be having a seal with which you will mark your enemies. Pg368 65- Muntakhabul Basair: Saad has narrated from Ibne Hisham from Barqi from Muhammad bin Sinan or from someone else from Abdullah bin Sinan from His Eminence, Abi Abdullah Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) that he said the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.) said: “When my Lord carried me up to Meraj He revealed to me from behind the veil whatever He wanted to and spoke to me about whatever He liked. Among which He said: ….O Muhammad, I am Allah, and there is no deity except Me and there is nothing before Me. I am the last and there is nothing after Me. I am the apparent and there is nothing more apparent than Me. I am the hidden and there is nothing more hidden than Me. There is no deity other than Me. I am the knower of everything. O Muhammad, Ali is the first of all the Imams from whom covenant is taken. O Muhammad, Ali is one whose soul will be captured last of all the Imams; he is the same Daabba that will speak to the people after emerging from the earth….” Pg420 3- Narrated to us Muhammad bin Abbas from Ja’far bin Muhammad bin Hasan from Abdullah bin Muhammad Ziyat from Muhammad that is Ibne Junaid from Mufaddal bin Salih from Jabir from Abu Abdullah Jadali that: “Once I came to Ali Ibne Abi Talib (a.s.) and he said: I am Dabbatul Ardh.” Pg421 6- Narrated to us Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Saeed from Hasan Salmi from Ayyub bin Nuh from Safwan from Yaqub bin Shuaib from Imran bin Mitham from Abaya that a person came to Amirul Momineen (a.s.) and said: “Please tell me something about Dabbatul Ardh.” He said: “You want me to do that?” He replied: “I want to know something about him.” Imam (a.s.) said: “That Daabba will be a believer, reciting the Quran having faith in Allah; eating and frequenting the markets.” 7- Narrated to us Husain bin Ahmad from Muhammad bin Isa from Safwan a similar tradition with the addition that the inquirer asked: “Who is it, O Amirul Momineen (a.s.)?” He replied: “May your mother mourn you , it is Ali.” Pg 422 11- Narrated to us Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Hasan Faqih from Ahmad bin Nasih from Husain bin Alwan from Saad bin Zarif from Asbagh bin Nubatah that he went to Amirul Momineen (a.s.) to find him eating bread, vinegar and olive oil. I asked: “O Amirul Momineen (a.s.), the Almighty Allah has said: “And when the word shall come to pass against them, We shall bring forth for them a creature from the earth that shall talk to them, because people did not believe in Our communications.” (Surah Naml 27:82) Who is implied by ‘a creature from the earth’ in this verse? He replied: “It is the same Daabba, which is eating bread, vinegar and olive oil.” Pg 423 12- Narrated to us Husain bin Ahmad from Muhammad bin Isa from Yunus bin Abdur Rahman from Samaa bin Mahran from Fazal bin Zubair from Asbagh bin Nubatah that once Muawiyah told him: “O Shia, you think that Ali is Dabbatul Ardh?” I said that we believed thus but the Jews are also of the same view. Muawiyah summoned Rasul Jalut and said: “Woe be on you, have you found anything mentioned about Dabbatul Ardh in your books?” “Yes, it is a man.” “Do you know his name?” “Yes, his name is Eliya.” Muawiyah turned to me and said: “O Asbagh, woe be on you; how close are Eliya and Aliyyan!” Pg423 14- Narrated to us Muhammad bin Hasan bin Sabah from Husain bin Hasan from Ali bin Hakam from Aban bin Uthman from Abdur Rahman bin Siyabah and Yaqub bin Shuaib from Salih bin Mitham that he asked Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.) to narrate a tradition. “….I again said: Now I am narrating it. If I narrate correctly, instead of saying that it is right you must keep quiet and if I am wrong, you should correct it. He said: This is easy for me. I said: You Imams are of the view that Imam Ali (a.s.) is Dabbatul Ardh. The Imam remained silent. That is the correct tradition was narrated.” THE PROMISED MAHDIAllamah Muhammad Baqir al-Majlisi English Translation of Biharul Anwar, Volume 13 (OldEdition)/Volumes 51-52-53 (New Edition) Kitabul Ghaibah – Book of Occultation Imam Mahdi (a.t.f.s.) – the twelfth Imam of the Twelver Shia Part II Translator Sayyid Athar Husain S.H. Rizvi Alhamdulillah, he closed his arguments by exposing the real Will. It is not some reference from Ghaybah Tusi, the Sahib al Amr comes with. Nor does the hadith inside Ghaybah Tusi book mentioning their Will have 12 golden seals wrapped around the particular page from Tusi’s Book. We have in other traditions about the Will that it descended having 12 golden seals, so thus the Aimmahs[a] even revealed the overall number of seals in the Will. Breaking each seal would reveal instructions for the Sahib al Amr of the time. For the hadiths & references, please refer to Episode 8. Similarly, this information the Aimmahs[a] revealed to us about the number of seals, is identical to what Sheikh Tusi and Saduq's aqeedah testifies similarly, that Imammat is limited to the 12, it will not increase nor decrease, and in our time of ghaybah whoever latches onto another Qaim beside Hujjah ibn Hassan[a], has deviated. So the last translated phrase in the quoted hadith, “that is sufficient for you” , would make more sense to indicate the fact – that is all there is, for related hadiths even revealed the overall number of seals in the Will to be 12 in number [check Episode 8] , in case random people like HusseintheShortComer popped up and started interpreting for us. [Abu al-Qasim informed me on the authority of Muhammad b.Ya’qub, on the authority of Ali b. Ibrahim, on the authority of his father (Ibrahim b.Hashim), on the authority of Ibn Abi Umayr, on the authority of Sa’id b. Ghazwan, on the authority of Abu Basi, on the authority of Abu Ja’far (al-Baqir), peace be upon him:] {Al-Kafi, I, 533, tradition no.15} He (al-Baqir) said: “After al-Husayn, there will be nine Imams, the ninth of them will be the one of them who will undertake the office for the rest of time (qa’im).” Kitab al Irshad, by Shaykh Al Mufid, Translated by I.K.A Howard (Lecturer in Arabic and Islamic Studies at the University of Edinburgh) Pg 528, Chapter: The Twelvth Imam, Under: The Reports of the Nomination of the Imamate of the Leader of the (Rest) of Time (Sahib al-Zaman) the Twelvth of the Imams, the Blessings of God on them all, and an Explanation of the Evidence Again, going back to the tradition that the Ansars try to use regarding the Tablet of Fatemah, to indicate Ahmad Hassan is mentioned as the last person in the Tablet: First of all, Sheikh Kulayni names the chapter: Chapter 126 The Statements and the Explicit Texts on Leadership with Divine Authority) of the Twelve Imams (a.s.) 3 Muhammad ibn Yahya and Muhammad ibn 'Abdallah have narrated from 'Abdallah ibn Ja'far from al-Hassan ibn Zarif and Ali ibn Muhammad from Salih ibn abu Hammad from Bakr ibn Salih from 'Abd al-Rahman ibn Salim from abu Basir from abu 'Abdallah (a.s.) whohas said the following "Once my father said to Jabir ibn 'Abdallah al-Ansari, 'I need your help in certain issue. When do you think it will be convenient for you we meet privately and I will ask you about it.?" He said, "Whenever you would like will be all right for me." One day when they met each other he said, "O Jabir, tell me about the tablet that you saw in the hand of my greatgrandmother, Fatima (a.s.), daughter of the Messenger of Allah. Tell me of what she said to you about the tablet and the writing on it?" Jabir then said, "I ask Allah to testify (to the truth of what I experienced that day). Once I went to see your great grandmother Fatime (a.s.) in the life time of the Messenger of Allah. I congratulated for the birth of al-Husayn (a.s.). I saw in her hand a green tablet that I think was made of Emerald (precious gems). I saw on it a white writing that was shining like the color of sun. I then said to her, "May Allah take my soul and the souls of my parents in service for your cause, O daughter of the Messenger of Allah, what is this tablet?" She said, "This is a tablet that Allah has given as a gift to His Messenger. In it there is the name of my father, the name of my husband, the names of my two sons and the names of the executors of the wills of my (special) descendants. My father gave it to me as a gift and glad news." Jabir then said, "Your great grandmother (a.s.) then gave the tablet to me. I read it and made a copy of it." My father then said, "O Jabir can you show that copy (that made from the tablet) to me?" He said, "Yes, I can show it to you." My father went with him to his house and he brought to light a tablet of parchment. He then said, "O Jabir, look carefully at your writing to see how read it for you." Jabir then kept looking at his handwriting while my father read and his reading was exactly letter by letter the same as what Jabir had in his copy. Jabir theen said, "I ask Allah totestify to the truth of my words that this is what I saw was written on the tablet." In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the merciful This a document from Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Wise, for Muhammad, His Prophet (s.a), His light, His embassador, His barrier and His guide (for people). Jibril, the trusted spirit has brought from the Lord of the worlds. "O Muhammad acknowledge the greatness of My names and pay thanks for My bounties. Do not hide My favors. I am the Allah and there is no lord besides Me. I break down the transgressors and grant wealth to the oppressed. I am the One Who has established the religion. I am Allah. There is no lord besides I. Whoever would expect to receive any distinction from someone other than Me or have fear of the justice of someone other Me I will cause him to suffer a torment the like of which I would cause no one else of the creatures of the world to suffer. I must be worshipped and in Me you must trust. I have not sent any prophet without, up on the completion of his days, appointing the executorof his will. I have given preference to you over the prophets and I have given preference to the executor of your will over the executors of the wills of the other prophets. I have granted you honor through your two brave grandsons, al-Hassan and al-Husayn. I have made al-Hassan to be the treasure of my knowledge after the completion of the time of his father. I have made al-Husayn to be the keeper of My revelation. I have granted him nobility through martyrdom and made his end triumphant. He will be the best of the martyrs and of the highest degree in the rank of the martyrs. I have kept My perfect word with him and My extremely clear authority and proof available for him. Through his descendant I will give good rewards or cause people to suffer torments. The first of them will Ali ibn al-Husayn, master of the worshippers, and the beauty of My friends of the past then his son who will be very similar to his grand father, the praised one, Muhammad al-Baqir, the one who will be very deeply founded in My knowledge and the source of wisdom from Me. Those who will have doubts about Ja'far will soon be destroyed. Whoever would reject him would be like one who would reject Me. The true words have already come from Me that I will dignify the position of Ja'farand will grant him joy and happiness for his followers, supporters and friends. After him Musa will live at the time of a blind, confusing and dark mischief. (He will live among the people) because the system of obedience to Me does not break down and my authority (proof of My existence) does not remain obscure. The thirst (for knowledge and guidance) of my friends will be quenched with sufficient measure. Whoever would reject any of them he has rejected my favors. Whoever would change my signs and verses of my book he has excused with lies. Woe is to those who would fabricate lies and reject (the truth) after the completion of the time of Musa, My servant, My beloved, My chosen one about Ali (al-Rida ). (Ali al-Rida) who isMy wali (the one who possesses Divine Authority) My supporter, the one on whom I will place the task of prophet-hood and examine how he would deal with it. An arrogant devil will murder him. He will be buried in the city build by the virtuous servant (of Allah) next to the worst of My creature. The words of truth have already been established that I will grant him joy and happiness with the birth of his son, Muhammad, his successor and the heir of his knowledge. He is the the mine of My knowledge, the right place for My secrets and My authority over My creature. Whoever would believe in him I will make paradise his dwelling and will grant him the ability to intercede for seventy people from his family of whom everyone would have become subject to Hellfire.I will make the end for his son, Ali, to arrive at salvation. Ali, is My wali (the one whopossesses Divine Authority), My supporter, the testimony in My creatures and My trustee in My revelation. From him I will make to come out a preacher to My way and a treasure of My Knowledge, al-Hassan. I will complete it with his son (M.H.M.D.) a blessing for the worlds. In him will be found the perfection of Musa (Moses) the beauty of Jesus and the patience of Ayyub. My friends in his time will become weak. Their heads will be sent as gifts like theheads of the Turks and Daylam. They will be murdered and burned. They will live in fear, frightened and fearful. The earth will be stained with their blood and wailing and lamentations will become wide spread in their women. These will possess My authority and through them Iwill remove the blind and dark mischief. Through them I will remove uncertainties, sufferings and shackles. These are the ones upon whom the blessings and forgiveness of their Lord descend and they are the ones who provide guidance. 'Abd al-Rahman ibn Salim has said that abu Basir said, "Even if you would hear no other Hadith expect this it will be enough for you. Protect it against everyone except the deserving people." So Allah even identified them. And Ahmad is not included. It stops at our 12th Imam[a.s].
