  2. Sheikh Al samahiji went to Al Hussain (as) & said the following emotional sentence.
  3. Why had Imam Husayn (a.s) presented this sacrifice? Is it for gaining power or is it a kind of mischief? Why he didn’t act like his brother?Let us see what Husayn (a.s) himself says about his movement. At the time when he was departing from Medina, he wrote a bequest to his brother, Muhammad Hanafiyyah. Some of the sentences of this testament were as follows: “…I am not taking up arms in order to make merry, or be ecstatic over what I possess. I am not making mischief, nor exercising oppression. But I am ready to fight for the sole goal of seeking reform of the Ummah of my grandfather, the Apostle of Allah (s.a.w). I want to enjoin good and forbid evil and guide the affairs of the people as my grandfather and father were doing.”

  5. I've recently purchased the Mukhtar narrative which is in Persian but has English subtitles from http://www.ahlulbayt.tv/store. I'm looking forward to watching it. I think it's a fun and interesting way to learn about the stories in Islamic history. Some other DVDs they sell (which can be found on the link above) are: -Imam Ali (as) Film series-this is a 22 part film series about the life of Imam Ali (as), it is in Persian and Arabic and subtitles are in English. -Joseph the Prophet (as) film series-language is in Persian and Arabic and subtitles are in English -Reign of Love-This is a film series about the life of Imam Ali Al-Ridha (as), the language is in Persian but subtitles are in English -The Saint Mary-this is a film focusing on the holy status of Lady Maryam. The language is in Persian and Arabic and subtitles are in English. I personally don't really watch movies and I never watch episodes that come on TV in Britain (I think they're too explicit and ruin your mentality) so I think this is a really good and beneficial alternative that you can watch alone or with family and friends. I know that some of these may be available on Youtube which has the advantage of being free but they're not of high quality and some of the episodes may be missing. Plus if you buy them from the website above the money will go to Ahlulbayt tv so theoretically you'll be helping spread the message of ahlulbayt so it'a a win-win! I hope this is of benefit to you. Thank you.
  6. Salam. The Holy Qur'aan constitutes on two fundamental components; it's Tanzeel (Revelation) and Taweel (Exegesis). The Tanzil of the Holy Qur'aan is the revelation of it's verses and it's Taweel is the exegesis of those verses. Both components are combined together to complete the Holy Qur'aan and each one is dependent on the other. Moreover, one cannot be separated from the other in a sense that, one cannot conduct the Taweel (Exegesis) of the Qur'aan if there was no Tanzeel (Revelation) of it, because if we were to assume there was no Tanzeel, then there could not be any Taweel performed since there would be no verses to conduct the Taweel of to begin with. Like wise for the other way around, that is; if the Tanzeel of the Qur'aan occurred but there was no Taweel conducted on it, then the Holy Qur'aan would be an ambiguous codex scripture which cannot be understood to benefit mankind. With that being said, up to this point, we can affirm that the Holy Qur'aan does not consist of solely the Tanzeel, but rather it has both the Tanzeel along with Taweel working hand in hand to complete.

  7. (bismillah) (salam) First of all i want to ask, how much do each of us know about our Imams? I think it is really important to take a look at their life, what they did for Islam and what do we learn from their behavior. It is required for us that is followers of them. In these last days, i have watched these lectures about Ahlulbayt. They really touched me, and made me think even more about my acts and my religion. And the way S. Ammar Nakshawani makes the lecture, is amazing! So here we go, i hope they will give good information for every brother and sister here! Please, watch all of them! (The link refers to a playlist, and i choose to post in this way so its easier for all of u to find)
  8. Salam dear brothers and sisters, Alhamdulillah. I find that this writing by Ayatullah Murtadha Muttahari as very inspiring indeed. Hope will benefit others too.InshaAllahhttps://www.facebook.com/pages/Sisters-In-Islam/385767358246015?ref=hl _____ Self-Negation versus Lawful PleasuresSufyan Suri belonged to a group of Muslims called Zahids and Sufis, which emerged in the beginning of 200 AH. They rejected the world, considering its blessings and advantages as temptations to beguile human beings away from the worship of God. They advocated simplicity, bordering on the bare level of survival. One day he came to visit Imam Jafar al-Sadiq (‘a) and found him dressed in a graceful white robe of expensive material. He immediately criticized it, saying, ‘You should not be dressed in such rich robes. They are not for you to adorn yourself. The pleasures and splendor of the world should not contaminate pious people like you. I mean, you should exercise restraint in terms of good food and splendid clothes.’ Imam Jafar al-Sadiq (‘a) smiled and said, ‘I would like to explain something that will benefit you both in this life and the hereafter. Besides, if you wish to gain more knowledge about Islam so that you can communicate it to others, it will be most useful; but, if your purpose is to create disharmony among Muslims, you will disregard whatever I say, as done by all mischief mongers. Listen carefully. You are clinging to the state of early Islam. Your mind carries the image of the simple lifestyle of the Holy Prophet (s) and his companions. You think that that lifestyle has become obligatory upon all Muslims until the Day of Judgment. Actually, it is otherwise. The Holy Prophet (s) and his faithful companions lived at a time when the Muslims were surviving on the bare minimum. Accordingly, their lives were no different from the rest of the believers. However, whenever a nation becomes resourceful and attains the blessings created for mankind, then those closest to Allah (SWT) deserve those blessings more than anyone else; the pious and God fearing more than the wicked and oppressive, the believers much more than the non believers. You consider it sinful for me to enjoy Almighty Allah’s blessings. Let me tell you something. Since I attained maturity, I have made sure the portion that Allah (SWT) has decided for the close of kin, the poor, the needy, the wayfarer, the captive, and whoever may have a right over me, reaches them before the sun sets. Not for a moment each day, have I disregarded or delayed performing my duties towards my fellowmen.’ Sufyan was nonplussed. He had no answer, so he got up and went to his companions, shared his conversation with the Imam (‘a). They decided to prepare a strong argument against the Imam’s (‘a) case, with supporting evidence from the Holy Quran and the Sunnah. After some days, the group visited the Imam (‘a) and said, ‘ Our friend could not present his case concerning a simple lifestyle convincingly, so we have come prepared to defeat your argument with ours on the basis of undeniable evidence.’ ‘You are most welcome to present your evidence-supported reasoning,’ the Imam (‘a) replied. ‘Our evidence is based on the Quran itself,’ they began confidently. ‘Which evidence can outsmart the verses of the Holy Quran. Go ahead. I’m more than eager to hear,’ he replied. ‘Two verses of the Quran will suffice to prove our case and belief system. Allah Almighty has praised some of the companions of the Holy Prophet (s) thus: “Though poverty did not allow them to fulfill their own needs, they regarded the needs of others above their own and helped them. Those will indeed be successful who are free of miserliness and niggardliness.” and “Though hungry themselves, they fed the poor, the orphan and the captive.” As soon as their group leader stopped talking, a person from the audience spoke up. ‘As far as I understand, you people are yourself doubtful and unsure about your own beliefs. You wish to kill all personal interest in ones property and belongings, so that people should distribute all they have among beggars like you, while you live off their hard-earned living. Besides, I have never seen you practice what you preach. You never resist taking good food yourself but want to prevent other Muslims from that pleasure.’ The Imam (‘a) silenced his companions saying, ‘Such impulsive outbursts never achieve anything.’ He then addressed the Sufis and asked, ‘You are quoting the Holy Quran, but do you know which verses have been abrogated and which revealed in their place; which are obvious and which obscure? Many people in the Ummah are being led astray because of a lack of information about the Quran.’ ‘We have to admit that we are informed to some extent, but definitely not enough.’ ‘Your problem is, therefore, the same as that of the others who are going astray. You need to be equally aware of the Ahadith, before creating a set of beliefs that separate you from those who know them. Let us discuss the two verses that you quoted. In both, the Almighty is not declaring the enjoyment of His blessings as prohibited (haram). He is eulogizing humility, generosity, and sacrifice. He is praising those people who, at a certain time gave precedence to the needs of others over their own, and instead of using their lawful earnings themselves, offered them to others in need. They would not be sinning if they did not do so, because the Almighty had not commanded them to do so, nor stopped them from it. Thus, perfecting large-heartedness and generosity, they gave away what they needed and suffered difficulties themselves. Their reward certainly lies with Allah Almighty. The verses you cited do not prove your case, because you condemn those people who use their own hard-earned money to enjoy the blessings of Allah (SWT), which the Quran does not allow you to do. Those pious people demonstrated the height of generosity and charity, but soon Allah (SWT) revealed laws determining the extent of spending on others. The new laws became obligatory on all Muslims, abrogating the earlier demonstration of generosity. Allah (SWT) restricted believers from distributing their earnings among others without satisfying the needs of their own family members, because the weak, the old, the children in the family find it difficult to endure the hardships forced upon them. For e.g., I have a loaf of bread. I give it away. My family starves, whereas, providing them with food is obligatory upon me. Some might fall ill or even die. The Holy Prophet (s) clearly enunciated the rules of charity, thus: If a person has some loaves of bread, dates, or money, which he wants to distribute, he must first share them with his parents, then his wife, children and himself, then relatives in descending order in the blood chain, and then, in fourth place, on others as charity. Charity thus comes last of all. When the Holy Prophet (s) heard that a Medinite had distributed his entire fortune in charity before dying, leaving his own family penniless, so that they would have to beg to survive, he(s) was extremely annoyed. He said that he would never have allowed him burial in the Muslim’s graveyard had he known this. My father Imam Muhammad Baqir (‘a) dictated to me the following words of the Holy Prophet (s): “Place your children first in the list of spending. Follow up with whoever is next in the blood chain.” The Holy Quran clearly states: “The pious and God-fearing are those who are neither niggardly and miserly, nor over generous and extravagant in charity, but always moderate and balanced.” Wherever Allah (SWT) condemns miserliness, He also condemns extravagance in charitable causes. Moderation is the rule. It is unreasonable to distribute ones entire wealth in charity and then pray to God for sustenance. Remember, God does not accept the prayers of such people. The Holy Prophet (s) classified the persons whose prayers are not accepted. They are: • Persons who wish their parents ill • Persons who lend their money to another without any witness or written pledge/ testifying document, thus wilfully endangering their right • Persons who pray for deliverance from their wives, foregoing their right to divorce, or being cowardly and not using that right • Persons who sit idle at home and pray for sustenance, demonstrating greed and ignorance; being blessed with the capacity to move and be active by their Lord; given strong limbs and muscles, hands, feet, eyes, ears and reason, to see, hear, think, and devise methods to use these blessings in order to earn a living. The purpose of creating these organs was that man should work hard and use them to achieve everything needed to sustain life; to progress; and dutifully obey the Divine commands as a sign of gratitude; and not become a burden on others. If man struggles and tries as commanded, sustenance is bound to follow. If he tries and does not succeed, he will still have the satisfaction that he did as was expected of him. He will not feel guilty if he tries and is destined to lose. • Persons granted abundant wealth waste it through abundant generosity, and then pray for more. Allah (SWT) responds to such persons by asking them: • “Why did you not exercise moderation?” • “Did I not command moderation in generosity?” • “Did I not warn you from being extravagant in charity?” • Persons praying for something that involves cruelty towards someone Allah (SWT) has explained the limits of generous and charitable spending, especially after an incident that took place in the life of the Holy Prophet (s). It so happened that the Holy Prophet (s) had some gold coins, which he wished to spend in charity. He did not want to hold on to them overnight. All day he kept distributing the coins until he had none left. Next morning, a needy person stood outside his door begging for charity, for alms, for help. He had nothing to offer the poor man. Verse 29 of Surah Asra’ revealed the following: “Do not shut your palm tight, nor open it so wide that nothing is left to give a seeker of alms, leaving you embarrassed and regretful.” The Ahadith of the Holy Prophet (s) support the ruling provided by the Quran. Those who believe in the Quran also believe in the Ahadith. Hazrat Salman i Farsi and Hazrat Abu Dharr are two famous pious and God fearing believers that you all have heard about. Their way of life was as described above. Hazrat Salman I Farsi used to set aside an amount that would cover his annual expenditure, in order to avoid any kind of inconvenience, as soon as he received his annual income from the Bait ul Maal. People questioned his act, saying, ‘You are such a pious person, yet you provide for yourself for a whole year. Supposing you die within a week, what good will those provisions serve you?’ ‘I may not die. Why do you suppose that I will die and not suppose that I might live for the whole year? If I survive the year, I will need the essentials of life. You do not realize that a person suffering from financial problems cannot worship or obey his Lord as peacefully and easily as one whose needs have been taken care of,’ was his wise answer. On the other hand, Abu Dharr had a few camels, and some heads of sheep. He survived on the milk of the ewes and slaughtered a sheep to satisfy his own desire for meat, feed his guests, or fulfill the needs of some one. However, he always retained his share while distributing the meat. Can you name any other person more pious than them? You have all read how the Holy Prophet (s) praised their levels of faith and piety. These people never neglected their own needs in the name of piety and obedience. Today, you people are preaching a lifestyle that disregards the needs of family, advises self-negation, detachment from the world, and distribution of all possessions in charity. No honorable companion of the Holy Prophet (s) ever adopted this lifestyle. I seriously warn you with a tradition quoted by my father and ancestors about what the Holy Prophet (s) said: “A faithful believer (Momin) is an amalgamation of strange attributes. Whether his body is cut into pieces, or all the countries in the east and west become his dominion he will be the same; thankful and obedient to Almighty Allah, because, both conditions- adversity and abundant prosperity-are equally good and honorable for him.” Do you think adversity is an essential state for a Momin to demonstrate his goodness and nobility? You are mistaken. The worth of a Momin lies in his soul, his faith and belief. Be it adversity or prosperity, he is always fully aware of his responsibilities and duties, and he performs them to perfection. This is why external circumstances do not determine his nobility; his immaculate conduct and behavior in ease and comfort, trial and tribulation, determine it. I would like to know whether my discourse until now has satisfied you or not. Do you still need further exposition of this topic?’ They did not know what to say. He felt they needed some more guidance, so he went on, ‘Let me explain it from another angle. In the early days of Islam, every Muslim had to fight ten non-believers. If he failed to do so, he was sinful, disobedient and guilty of neglecting his duty. When the number of Muslims increased, Almighty Allah mercifully changed the law, and one Muslim had to fight only two non-believers. Another perspective would be the Islamic system of justice. I’d like to ask you what laws Islam has ordained to ensure justice for the oppressed and punishment for the criminal? Let us suppose there is a petition against one of you, in court, by your wife. It complains of neglect in providing the basic essentials of life. The judge orders you to provide your wife with her rightful demands. How will you respond to that sentence, and how will you pay for her expenses? Will you declare that you have detached yourself from monetarily beneficial worldly activities and spend your time in the worship of God? Will your excuse be valid and reasonable? Will the verdict of the judge be just and fair, or unjust and unfair? If you declare the verdict as unfair, you will be openly denying the truth, besides deceiving the entire Ummah with your hypocrisy. If you agree that the verdict is fair, your excuse will become invalid. This totally falsifies your system of belief, proving it irrational, unreasonable, and impracticable. Let us now view the obligatory and non-obligatory expenditure, which, as a Muslim, one is bound to incur. For instance, sometimes the Zakat has to be paid, at other times penalties for some acts of disobedience. If the entire Ummah adopts your lifestyle of piety and self-negation, what will become of the essential financial system? Zakat is obligatory on gold, silver, sheep, camel, cow, and other domestic animals; dates, raisins and their fellow species. What will be the condition of the Zakat funds? Has not it been ordained compulsory to improve the lives of the poor and needy, and the owner to benefit from life’s blessings? The purpose of these laws is to motivate man to achieve as much as his potential allows him and enjoy the benefits of those blessings. If the purpose of religion was to negate the blessings of life and lead a life of imminent poverty, then the poor must have achieved the heights of perfection as purposed by the Creator. Thus, no one should extend financial help to them; they should be left on their own in the condition they are, so that they do not fall below that level of perfection. On the other hand, the poor should also refuse all assistance, because they do not want to lose those heights of perfection. What you are suggesting is that whoever owns any property should give it all away, distribute it among others, thus invalidating Zakat, the divine law of distribution of wealth. Let me warn you, you are treading an extremely dangerous and misguided path that is the result of ignorance, unfamiliarity with Quranic studies, and unawareness of the Sunnah and Ahadith of the Holy Prophet (s).Besides this, you refuse to accept the authenticity of those Ahadith, which do not support, propose or encourage, rather denounce your way of life, inspite of the fact that, the Holy Quran also supports the recommendations in these Ahadith. You refuse to give up your self-created version of religion, which you have foolishly adopted; a misguided way of life, which has nothing to do with Islam. Besides, you force others to adopt it! You, sadly, cannot distinguish between the abrogated verses and ordained verses; the obvious and the obscure; the obligations and prohibitions, nor decipher the fine nuances and strange aspects hidden in them, yet proudly proclaim a view of life based on the Quran. Let me question you about the prayer of Sulaiman ibn e Daud (‘a). It reads in the Quran, thus: “O my Creator! Grant me a kingdom, the like of which no other can attain.” God granted him such a kingdom. There is no doubt that a prophet cannot pray or ask for anything that is either not right or good. Neither the Quran, nor any believer, has ever declared this desire as impious, nor questioned the reason behind the desire for such a huge kingdom, unparalleled in splendor and glory. Similar is his father, Daud’s (‘a) case. Similarly, before him, came Yusuf (‘a). Yusuf (‘a) officially demanded from the ruling king, ‘Make me Exchequer of the State Treasury, because I am both honest and trustworthy.’ Gradually, he became the Administrator of the entire kingdom, ranging from Egypt to Yemen. The famine had badly affected surrounding areas. Caravans of people would come to buy grains from them and return home. There is not one incident showing that Yusuf(‘a) ever did anything wrong. He performed his duties with absolute honesty and integrity. The Quran also mentions the incident of Zulqarnain (‘a). He loved God and was loved by Him, therefore He provided him with all essential knowledge and power in the twinkling of an eye and made him ruler of all the countries in the east and west of the earth. Gentlemen! • Give up your dangerously misguided way of life and adopt the true principles of Islam. • Accept whatever God has declared as do’s and dont’s, and stop coining your own laws. • Do not interfere in matters you do not understand. • Learn from those who know. • Persevere to gain knowledge of the abrogated verses and ordained verses, the obvious and the obscure, the obligations and prohibitions. Not only will you find this knowledge beneficial, it will free you from this folly and deviation. • Distance yourself from ignorance, because it espouses the majority. Sadly, only a minority uses reason and seeks wisdom. Almighty Allah states in the Quran: “Wisdom is much, much higher than any person considered wise.”’ Source: http://www.al-islam.org/anecdotes-ahlul-bayt-ayatullah-murtadha-mutahhari/islamic-way-life
  9. (salam) I am working on a project and I need a bit of help. I need 'ahlul bayt' written in calligraphy form. Usually this is easy to find in a google search but for this word I can only find it written out plainly, no fanciness (which is what I need). Anyone able to help in any way?
  10. (bismillah) (salam) The first effort of some Mexican shias to have a valuable and informative shia website despite the strong presence and rapid expansion of wahhabism in Mexico, inshallah if you know any Spanish speaker from Mexico you can share this page: http://www.islammexico.org/ Thank you :D
  11. Salam, A must read: http://shia-rafidah.com/articles/32-shia-al-yamani.html
  12. In the name of Allah. Salam. I recently saw a great work by Murtaza Turabi ( مرتضی ترابی ) [A Scholar from Turkey with Iranian (Tabriz) origin]. The work (which consists of two volumes), in Turkish is titled; "Ehl-i Beyt'in dilinden Kur'an-ı Kerim". In Persian language, the writer published the books with the title; " قرآن كريم از منظر اهل بيت " I guess. As suggested in the title, the books cover the description of the Holy Quran in the words of Ahlulbayt, but it is not limited to it. One of the many chapters of the work, you will definitely be enchanted by, is the chapter, where Turabi gives examples to Ahlulbayt using the Holy Quran to derive laws about various matters. It definitely is a great work, if I may suggest. And I hope it is translated into English. ma salam
  13. Assalamu aleykum wa rahmatulahi wa barakatu, I am intrigued by how much our Shia activist Mehdi Hasan is allowed to say globally on AlJazeera and be a Host! on topics about Hezbollah, Morsi and even Bashar as well as the Sunni/Shia divide and other topics on a channel owned by our opposition. I do not understand how he is allowed to give the Shia view of things LIVE on an American/Israeli/GodKnowsWhat Mainstream Television channel that is even available on American cable TV "Foxtel" ! If anyone could explain I would be greateful, Jazakallah.
  14. Such a PROFOUND and POWERING poem. Please pay attention to each and every word. May Allah bless him. He is amazing and ishAllah he spreads his ability so they all know of the beauty of Islam. This is my first time listening to him.
  15. (bismillah) (salam) I hope all of you are in the best of health and Imaan. So, I think we all know of the aHadith that say that the love of Ahlulbayt (peace be upon them all) is a prerequisite for entering Heaven. But, I have also heard of aHadith in many Urdu lectures that list those who will not love Ahlulbayt (peace be upon them all) and one of these is an illegitimate child. I get why that they can't be judges, etcetera as a precautionary measure but what about loving Ahlulbayt (peace be upon them all). I mean, it's not the child's fault whatever sins his parents. Plus, not being able to love Ahlulbayt (peace be upon them all) would mean that, according to the other Hadith, they can't also go to Heaven. So, is there any explanation to this or are these Hadith which make this claim dha'eef?
  16. Salam, Is there any hadiths any references or anything the prophet or ahlulbayt used to use regarding incense? Jazakallah.
  17. Question: Salaam, Is thia Narration authentic or even present in Behar al Anwar Or Some Narration like this? " O Nouman, Malaika (Angels) every year on 10th Moharram hit sword on their naked back to mourn my grandfather Imam Hussain (as) " ~ Imam Ali Reza (AS). [Ref : bihaar ul anwar Volume : 104, page : 223] Answer: It is not authentic and we did not find it in authentic sources. -Answered by the office of Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi
  18. (bismillah) (salam) In the name of Allah, The most beneficent the most merciful, Assalamu aleykum. I would like to ask the people of this forum if they could please help me out, By giving me a list of marajas from their knowledge that do not allow tatbir. Jazakallah. (P.S.

  21. Thousands of pilgrims from inside and outside of Iraq visited Karbala to receive the blessing of reciting the supplication of Imam Hussain on the day of Arafa. Imam Muhammad al-Baqir says -He who goes to the holy shrine of Imam Hussain on the day of Arafa will receive the same reward as going to Hajj and Umra one thousand times each.- The holy shrine mobilized all its members and cadres to greet the visitors and provide the best services for them, including facilitating their access to the holy shrine to perform the rituals. It is worthy to mention that the holy city of Karbala witnesses the influx of countless pilgrims during several occasions such as Ashura, Arbaeen, Arafa Day and the 15th of Shaaban. http://imhussain.com/e_index.php?ac=news&id=38 Note: We are the International Media Unit in the holy shrine of Imam Hussain, Karbala Iraq.

  22. OBJECTIONS AGAINST HAZRAT FATEMAH ZAHRA (SA) AND THEIR REPLIES - OBJECTION NO 4 PART 1 Objection 4: Report of ‘Fatima is a part of me’ was regarding proposal of Ali (a) to the daughter of Abu Jahl In one of their objections, the Wahabis have mentioned: We have numerous authentic traditional reports, which mention the proposal of Ali ® to Juwairiya, Abu Jahl’s daughter, which say that when Fatima ® was yet alive, Ali ® sent a proposal to Abu Jahl’s daughter. When Fatimacame to know about this, she was extremely distraught and the Holy Prophet (s) also, after coming to know about it, came to the Masjid and said: “Fatimais a part of me; one, who has hurt her, has in fact hurt me.” In spite of these traditional reports, why do the Shia try to use this report as condemnation of Abu Bakr and Umar, whereas the Prophet was himself infuriated and displeased with his son-in-law – Ali Ibne Abi Talib (a) – may Allah honor his countenance – and he mentioned the captioned tradition? Rational reply : The true source of the fiction of the marriage proposal of Amirul Momineen (a) to Abu Jahl’s daughter, Juwairiya, is the traditional report, which Muhammad bin Ismail Bukhari has mentioned in a number of places in his Sahih. First, we would quote the original version and then analyze it: That when they (caravan of Ahle Bayt) reached Medina after returning from (captivity in Shaam with) Yazid bin Muawiyah after the martyrdom of Husain bin Ali (may Allah bestow His Mercy upon him), Al-Miswar bin Makhrama met him and asked, “Do you have any need you may order me to satisfy?” Ali said, “No.” Al-Miswar asked, “Will you give me the sword of Allah’s Apostle for I am afraid that people may take it from you by force? By Allah, if you give it to me, they will never be able to take it till I die. [till Makhrama said in the due course] When Ali bin Abi Talib asked for the hand of Abi Jahl’s daughter to be his wife besidesFatima, I heard Allah’s Apostle on his pulpit delivering a sermon in this connection before the people, and I had then attained puberty. Allah’s Apostle said: Fatima is from me, and I am afraid she will be subjected to trials in her religion (because of jealousy). The Prophet then mentioned one of his sons-in-law from the tribe of Abu Shams, and praised him as a good son-in-law, saying: Whatever he said was the truth, and he promised me and fulfilled his promise. I do not make a legal thing illegal, nor do I make an illegal thing legal, but by Allah, the daughter of Allah’s Apostle and the daughter of the enemy of Allah, (i.e. Abu Jahl) can never get together (as the wives of one man).”[1] Bukhari has written, on another occasion in his book: Narrated Al-Miswar bin Makhrama: Ali asked for the hand of Abu Jahl’s daughter. Fatima heard of this and went to Allah’s Apostle saying, “Your people think that you do not become angry for the sake of your daughters as Ali is now going to marry Abu Jahl’s daughter. “On that Allah’s Apostle got up and after his recitation of Tashahud. I heard him saying, “Then after! I married one of my daughters to Abul Aas bin Rabi (the husband of Zainab, the daughter of Prophet) before Islam and he proved truthful in whatever he said to me. No doubt, Fatimais a part of me; I hate to see her being troubled. By Allah, the daughter of Allah’s Apostle and the daughter of Allah’s enemy cannot be wives of one man.” So Ali gave up that engagement.[2] Although other traditional reports also exist in this regard in Ahle Sunnat books of traditions, but since Bukhari is considered to be the most important traditional book of Ahle Sunnat, we have analyzed the reports of this book. Without any doubt, if the suggestions of these reports are clarified the implication of the rest of them would also become clear. FOR MORE ARTICLES CLICK HERE A. Viewpoint of Ahle Bayt (a) regarding this fiction Before the analysis of Bukhari, it is appropriate to state the viewpoint of Ahle Bayt (a) regarding this fiction. Shaykh Saduq ® has, in his Amali, narrated from Imam Sadiq (a) a detailed report concerning this: Al-Qama says: I asked Imam Sadiq (a): O son of the Messenger of Allah (s), people (Ahle Sunnat) accuse us (Shia) of committing vile acts; in such a way that it has made us extremely distressed. Imam (a) said: O Al-Qama, man cannot invite the attention of people and bridle their tongues. How can you remain safe from that from which the prophets, messengers and successors had not remained safe? Did they not accuse Yusuf of having intention to commit fornication? Did they not say about Ayyub (a) that he was involved in those calamities due to his sins? Did they not say about Prophet Dawood (a) that he pursued the bird till he glanced at the wife of Uriya for a moment and became infatuated with her; and in order to achieve his aim, he sent the husband of that woman to the battlefront and placed him before the Ark of Covenant till he was killed and after that he married her?... Did they not accuse the Messenger of Allah (s) of being partial to his cousin, Ali (a) and that he spoke under the influence of his selfish desires…and they have said more than this regarding his successors…Did they not allege that the chief of successors, Ali Ibne Abi Talib (a) wanted to marry Abu Jahl’s daughter while having Fatima as a wife? And that the Prophet in the presence of Muslims ascended the pulpit and complained about him saying: O people, Ali wants to bring the daughter of the enemy of God upon the head of the daughter of the Messenger of Allah. Know that Fatima is a part of me; one, who has hurt her, has in fact hurt me and one who has pleased her has in fact pleased me and whoever has infuriated her has in fact made me furious….[3] B. Miswar bin Makhrama was inimical to Ahle Bayt (a) All these the reports, which Ahle Sunnat have recorded, especially in Sahih Bukhari and Muslim, are on the authority of a person named Miswar bin Makhrama, a devotee of Abdullah bin Zubair. He was a member of Ibne Zubair’s army. During Yazid’s attack on Holy Mecca, he shot rocks from catapults on Yazid’s army; he was killed along with a number of people. Abdullah bin Zubair was among the enemies of Ahle Bayt (a). So much so that he omitted the recitation of Salawat[4], because the Ahle Bayt (a) of the Prophet were also included in it. Balazari writes in Ansabul Ashraf: Among the vile acts of Abdullah Ibne Zubair was not mentioning the name of the Messenger of Allah (s) in his sermons. When he was asked about this, he said: Some relatives of the Messenger of Allah (s) were evil human beings; they become arrogant, pleased and conceited by hearing his name.[5] In order to prove the enmity of Miswar bin Makhrama to Ahle Bayt (a) it is sufficient to say that Khawarij had very good relations with them and they considered him as one of their own. Dhahabi has written in the biography of Miswar bin Makhrama: Khawarij have adopted him and they consider him as one of their own.[6] In the same way, he was a supporter of Muawiyah to such an extent that whenever he heard the name of Muawiyah, he used to invoke blessing on him (recite Durood). Dhahabi has written about this in Seer Aalamun Nubla: I never saw Miswar hearing the name of Muawiyah without invoking divine blessings for him.[7] In spite of all this, is it all right to accept the reports of this character about Ahle Bayt (a)? It is interesting that according to Bukhari, Miswar bin Makhrama has mentioned this in the presence of Imam Sajjad (a) when he had just returned from Shaam and was shattered by the martyrdom of his father and brothers. At a time when Imam Zainul Abideen (a) was in need of condolence and comforting, would any sane person, except an enemy of Ahle Bayt (a) would permit himself to utter these statements and break the heart of the Holy Imam (a)? C. The sole reporter of this tradition, Miswar bin Makhrama reached puberty at the age of six It is very interesting and remarkable to look at the condition of Ahle Sunnat narrators on the basis of what their own scholars of science of narrators have said. Miswar bin Makhrama was born in 2 A.H. in Mecca and in 8 A.H. he migrated toMedina. On the other hand they have narrated that the incident of proposing to the daughter of Abu Jahl occurred in 8 A.H.; that was when Miswar bin Makhrama was not more than six years of age. Ibne Hajar Asqalani has written in Al-Isabah: Miswar was born two years after migration (Hijrat) and he entered Medina after the conquest of Mecca during the month of Zilhajj in 8 A.H. and he was not more than six years old.[8] In the same way, there are two other points in the report of Miswar, which if examined carefully will fully expose the falsity of this fiction and they are as follows: A. In the report of Bukhari. it is mentioned that Miswar says: I heard about this incident when I had reached puberty.[9] Now, our question is: When the age of puberty is around fifteen years, how is it possible for a six year old boy to reach puberty? Ibne Hajar Asqalani noted this basic difficulty, but as per his usual habit has overlooked it and justified it in the following way that: It is possible that ‘reaching puberty’ is in the literal sense; that is mental maturity. He has written concerning this in Tahdhibut Tahdhib: There is doubt in the chain of narrators and sources of this quotation, because there is no difference of opinion regarding the fact that Miswar was born after migration (Hijrat) and the incident of proposing to the daughter of Abu Jahl occurred after six or seven years after the birth of Miswar, thus, how he could have reached sexual maturity; although it is possible that ‘reaching puberty’ is in the literal sense, that is becoming mentally matured.[10] In reply it should be said: Firstly: This justification is against rules of Arabic grammar and general parlance and no sane person would accept this explanation; Secondly: Supposing that ‘reaching puberty’ in the literal sense means reaching mental puberty, even then this justification is not applicable to Miswar bin Makhrama, because according to the report of Sahih Muslim, when he was present in Medina, he was absolutely ignorant of the fundamentals of religion, so much so that he did not conceal his privates from people and even the Messenger of Allah (s); and came out without clothes. From this aspect how is it possible to accept that he reached mental maturity at the age of six? Miswar says: I was carrying a heavy stone and my lower garment was loose, and it, therefore, slipped off (so soon) that I could not place the stone (on the ground) and carry to its proper place. Upon this the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: Return to your cloth (lower garment), take it (and tie it around your waist) and do not walk naked.[11] CONTINUED IN PART 2 ......

From you all a lesson is derived Not once did you complain The calamities you all survived The length of suffering and intense pain Nevertheless the way the wind blows Without a doubt in his head It is clear to see who was chose Who was it that spent a night in his bed The rain of agony showered upon you all A blessing in disguise With each drop you remained humble&tall It gently made it clear who to despise Oh those of the household The way each action you mould each ounce of knowledge you have told Be sure to know you all define.
