  1. This Hadith, if accepted as authentic, can go some way to explain the prevalence of narrations attributed to the Ahl al-Bayt in Sunni circles which seem to contradict what our Madhhab would consider to be true. 741. I (al-Kashshi) found in the book of Abi Muhammad Jibril b. Ahmad al-Fariyabi in his own hand-writing: narrated to me Muhammad b. Isa, from Muhammad b. al-Fudhayl al-Kufi, from Abdallah b. Abd al-Rahman, from al-Haytham b. Waqid, from Maymun b. Abdallah who said: A group came to Aba Abdillah عليه السلام from one of the garrison towns while I (i.e. Maymun) was with him, asking him for the Hadith (to narrate to them), so he said to me: do you know anyone from this group? I said: no, he said: then why have they come in to see me? I said: these are people who seek Hadith from everyone, they do not care from whom they take the Hadith. He (al-Sadiq) said to a man from among them: have you heard the Hadith from other than me? He said: yes, he said: so narrate to me some of what you have heard, he said: I have come so as to hear from you, I have not come to narrate to you. He (al-Sadiq) said to another man (who was with them): that one - what prevents him from narrating to me what he has heard? You go ahead and narrate to me that which you have heard, or has the one who narrated to you the Hadith entrusted it to you as a trust - disallowing you to narrate it to anyone? he said: no, he said: so make us hear some of what you have accumulated of knowledge so that we may benefit - If Allah wills. He (the man) said: narrated to us Sufyan al-Thawri from Ja’far b. Muhammad who said: all of the Nabidh (fermented fruit) is Halal except the intoxicating wine, then he kept quiet, so Abu Abdillah عليه السلام said to him: increase for us. He said: narrated to us Sufyan from the one who narrated to him from Muhammad b. Ali (al-Baqir) who said: whoever does not wipe over his shoes then he is a partisan of innovation, and whoever does not drink Nabidh then he is an innovator, and whoever does not eat the scale-less fish, and the food of the people of Dhimma (Ahl al-Kitab), and the meat slaughtered by them, then he is misguided, as for Nabidh then Umar drank the Nabidh made of grapes after mixing it with water, and as for wiping over the shoes, then Umar had wiped over them, three times while on journey and once by day and night while not travelling, and as for the meat (slaughtered by the Ahl al-Kitab) then Ali had eaten it and said about it: eat it - for Allah the Exalted has said: “this day is made lawful for you the good things, and the food of those who have been given the book is lawful for you, and your food is lawful to them”, then he kept queit, Abu Abdillah عليه السلام said: go on. He said: I have narrated to you what I have heard, he said: is this all that you have heard? He said: no, he said: then add for us. He said: narrated to us Amr b. Ubayd from al-Hasan who said: things that people have believed in and accepted, while there is no authentic basis for them in the Book, they include - the punishment in the grave, and the Mizan (weighing scales), and the Hawdh (lake fount), and the intercession, and the Niyyah, that is, a man intends to do good, so he does not go on to do it but he is still rewarded for it, infact, a man is not rewarded except for what he actually does, if good then a good reward, and if bad then an evil recompense. He (Maymun) said: so I laughed out loud because of his narrations, so Abu Abdillah عليه السلام signalled to me, meaning to say: stop so that we can hear, so the man turned to me and said: what makes you laugh? Is the Hadith true or false? I (Maymun) said to him: may Allah set you aright and preserve you, what makes me laugh is the wondrous amazement I have - how have you been able to memorise all these narrations! So he stopped talking. Then Abu Abdillah عليه السلام said to him: continue. He said: narrated to us Sufyan al-Thawri from Muhammad b. al-Munkadir that he saw Ali upon the Minbar of Kufa and he was saying - if I am brought someone who prefers me over Abu Bakr and Umar I will lash him with the Hadd of the slanderer, so Abu Abdillah عليه السلام said: add for us. He said: narrated to us Sufyan from Ja’far who said: love of Abu Bakr and Umar is faith, and their enmity is disbelief, Abu Abdillah عليه السلام said: keep going. He said: narrated to us Yunus b. Ubayd from al-Hasan - that Ali delayed in giving the oath of allegiance to Abi Bakr, so al-Atiq (Abu Bakr) said to him: what made you abstain O Ali from the oath of allegiance? By Allah I was tempted to cut off your neck, so Ali said to him: O vicegerent of the messenger of Allah - no reproach, he (Abu Bakr) said: no reproach, Abu Abdillah عليه السلام said to him: add more. He said: narrated to me Sufyan al-Thawri from al-Hasan that Aba Bakr ordered Khalid b. Walid to cut off the neck of Ali when he makes the Taslim and completes the morning prayer, then he resolved what was between himself and Ali, so he said: O Khalid do not do what I had ordered, Abu Abdillah عليه السلام said: continue. He said: narrated to me Nuaym b. Abdallah from Ja’far b. Muhammad that he said: Ali wished that he were in the palm groves of Yanbu, shading himself in its shades, eating from its dates, but that he not witness the battles of Jamal nor Nahrawan, and Sufyan also narrated the same to me, Abu Abdillah عليه السلام said to him: keep on. He said: narrated to us Abbad from Ja’far b. Muhammad who said: when Ali b. Abi Talib saw the great number of the dead on the day of Jamal he said to his son al-Hasan: O my son I have been destroyed, so al-Hasan said to him: O my father, had I not warned you against coming out to war? So Ali said to him: O my son, I did not expect that the affair would reach to this extent, Abu Abdillah عليه السلام said to him: continue. He said: narrated to me Sufyan al-Thawri from Ja’far b. Muhammad that when Ali had finished fighting the people of Siffin he cried over them then he said: may Allah unite between me and them in paradise. He (Maymun) said: so the room constricted on me, and I perspired, and it was as though I was about to come out of my skin (because of my anger), so I wanted to stand and go to him and kick him, then I remembered the signal of Abi Abdillah عليه السلام and stopped myself. Then Abu Abdillah عليه السلام said to him: from which land are you? he said: from the people of Basra, he said: so this person you narrate from and name him Ja’far b. Muhammad - do you know him? he said: no, he said: have you heard anything directly from him? he said: no, he said: so you consider these narrations to be true? He said: yes, he said: when did you hear them? He said: I do not remember, but these are the narrations which are well known among the people of our town for ages, the people do not have any doubt about them, Abu Abdillah said to him: if you were to see this man on whose authority you narrate and he were to say to you - these which you narrate from me are lies - I do not know anything about them and have never narrated them - will you believe him? he said: no, he said: why not? he said: because people have witnessed to having heard them from him, people who - if they were to witness about the manumission of a slave - their witness would be accepted (their testimony is admissible in the court of law). He (al-Sadiq) said: write down: In the name of Allah the beneficent the merciful, narrated to me my father from my grandfather – he (i.e. the man) said: what is your name? he said: why do you ask me about my name - the messenger of Allah said: Allah created the souls two thousand years before the bodies, then he made them to float in the air, so whichever souls familiarized with each other continued to have an affinity in here (on the earth), and whichever of them repulsed each other continued to oppose each other in here, and whoever lies on us the Ahl al-Bayt, Allah will resurrect him on the day of judgement as a blind jew, and if he were to be alive when the Dajjal appeared he would believe in him, and if he were to die before that and not meet him (i.e. Dajjal), he will believe in him in his grave, O slave (i.e. saying this to Maymun) put for me the water, and he signalled to me meaning to say - do not leave. So the group stood and left after having written down the narration they had just heard from him, then he (the Imam) came out while his face was dejected, he said: did you not hear what these people narrate! I said: may Allah set you aright, who are these people and what is this they narrate! He said: the most strange thing I found about their speech was the lies they attributed to me, quoting me in that which I have not ever said nor has anyone heard me saying, and their statement that if he (the man they narrate from i.e. Ja’far b. Muhammad) were to deny these narrations they would not accept that from him, what is wrong with them! May Allah not give them any respite! Then he said: when Ali عليه السلام wished to depart from Basra he stood in its outskirts and said: may Allah curse you, O you who are the most putrid of lands in terms of its soil, and the quickest to decay, and the most severe in being punished, in you is the disease, they said: what is that O commander of the faithful, he said: the belief in free-will, in which there is a fabrication foisted upon Allah, and the enmity against us the Ahl al-Bayt in which is the displeasure of Allah and his prophet, and their lies against us the Ahl al-Bayt, and their legitimizing of lying against us.

    Hadiths

    Assalam alaikum brothers and sisters, Today in my sujood I had placed my head in the turbah and it has cracked. I did not pressure it with my head and the turbah was not broken or had any damage whatsoever before the incident. The turbah has now been cracked in half by my sujood and I was wondering if there was a meaning behind this.
  3. Assalam o alaikum Dear Brothers and Sisters, These are testing times and i need some true advice (through quran and hadith) on how to manage emotions. People may advice on seeking professional help with this. However, i believe that people in the times of our Holy Prophet (SAWW) and our Aimma must have had such issues. This is the reason why i want some advice based on these sources. The issue at hand is overall emotional health. How can one be emotionally fit and how can one keep one's thought process in control. What does Allah and His selected few say about the right course of action in this regard? Jazakallah Kayr un Katheera
  4. Salam, I was wondering that if our beloved Quran and beloved Prophet and his progeny revealed any life other than on Earth. We call em Aliens on UFOs etc. Whether it is from Shia sources or sunni sources. I would really appreciate a discussion on this too. Please don't share any of the videos of the proofs of alien. Thank you :D God bless you O' reader!
  5. I've heard a couple of rumors from people and would like to confirm if it's true or no? Firstly my friend told me that Imam al Hussain a.s will reappear and live on this planet for 300 years. Are there any hadiths regarding this? Second, is it true that sayyeds will be punished and rewarded twice as much than non sayyeds? Thirdly, ok I'll make this to a question, who will kill the Mahdi? or how will he die?
  6. قال أبو عمرو الكشي: قال يحيى بن عبد الحميد الحماني في كتابه المؤلف في إثبات إمامة أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام: قلت لشريك: إن أقواما يزعمون أن جعفر بن محمد ضعيف في الحديث! فقال: أخبرك القصة كان جعفر بن محمد رجلا صالحا مسلما ورعا، فاكتنفه قوم جهال يدخلون عليه، ويخرجون من عنده، ويقولون: حدثنا جعفر بن محمد، ويحدثون بأحاديث كلها منكرات كذب موضوعة على جعفر، يستأكلون الناس بذلك، ويأخذون منهم الدراهم، فكانوا يأتون من ذلك بكل منكر، وسمعت العوام بذلك منهم، فمنهم من هلك ومنهم من أنكر، وهؤلاء مثل المفضل بن عمر، وبنان، وعمرو النبطي وغيرهم، ذكروا أن جعفرا حدثهم أن معرفة الامام تكفي من الصوم والصلاة، وحدثهم عن أبيه عن جده، وأنه حدثهم قبل يوم القيامة، وأن عليا عليه السلام في السحاب يطير مع الريح، وأنه كان يتكلم بعد الموت، وأنه كان يتحرك على المغتسل، وأن إله السماء وإله الأرض الامام، فجعلوا لله شريكا، جهال، ضلال، والله ما قال جعفر شيئا من هذا قط، كان جعفر أتقى لله، وأورع من ذلك، فسمع الناس ذلك فضعفوه، ولو رأيت جعفرا لعلمت أنه واحد الناس Abu Amr al-Kashshi said: Yahya b. Abd al-Hamid al-Himani said in his book written with the purpose of proving the Imama of the commander of the faithful عليه السلام : I asked Sharīk: “(Why is it that) groups of people maintain Ja‘far b. Muḥammad is weak in ḥadīth ?” Sharīk replied: “I will tell you the situation. Ja‘far b. Muḥammad was a righteous man and a GOD fearing Muslim. Then a group of foolish-ignorant persons [qawm juhhāl] surrounded him frequenting his home and leaving his presence, and saying “Ja‘far b. Muḥammad narrated to us.” They narrated traditions all of them objectionable [munkarāt]—lies, forgeries imputed to Ja‘far!—in order to exploit people for their own advantage and take their dirhams, and to this end they brought forth all kinds of objectionable traditions. Thereupon the public [al-‘awāmm] heard these from them, and some were brought to ruin (by accepting them), while others disclaimed them. These (ignorami) were the likes of al-Mufaḍḍal b. ‘Umar and Bunān [b. Sam‘ān] and ‘Amr al-Nabaṭī [‘Ammār al-Sābāṭī ?] and others. They stated that Ja‘far narrated to them that recognition of the imām suffices to spare one from fasting and prayer; and that he narrated to them from his father [Bāqir], from his grandfather [i.e. ‘Alī] who informed them about (events that will occur) before the Resurrection; and that ‘Alī is in the clouds flying with the wind, and that he used to speak after death, and moved as he was being washed (for burial); and that god in heaven while god on earth is the imām—so these errant/misguided fools appointed a partner for GOD! By GOD, Ja‘far never said anything like this at all! Ja‘far was more GOD mindful and GOD revering than that. So when the people (narrating traditions) heard these things, they deemed him ‘weak’ (and forsook transmitting his narrations). If you had seen Ja‘far, you would have known that he was truly unparalleled among his peers [wāḥid al-nās].” NOTES: There is no doubt that this business of ascribing falsities to the Aimma (esp. by Kufan Ghulat vis-a-vis al-Sadiq) occurred, and this is well documented in our sources, but Sharik’s analysis is peurile in that it does not account for the authentic strand of the Imamiyya (the legalistic school that we would consider the forebears of the later Ithna-Ashariyya) which has not only preserved al-Sadiq’s defense against the Ghulat but also his dis-association from them. Figures like Bunan are censured as accursed in our Rijal works for claiming divinity for the Aimma, and other objectionable beliefs like incarnation and transmigration of souls. Sharik seems not to be able to account for what we would consider the true torch-bearers of the al-Sadiq school, people like Zurara and Muhammad b. Muslim and others. The Sunni scholars have a real blind-spot about who the real players in the Imami movement of the time were, they rather concentrate on the more controversial figures who have been rightfully sidelined – more about this later. Looking at the kinds of false beliefs that Sharik mentions, none of these are held by contemporary Imamis, showing that the authentic strand was successful in preserving the true message for the most part.

    Sexual Slavery in Islam

    https://www.quora.com/Did-Muhammad-own-sex-slaves Can someone provide me shia hadith and opinions as to why the prophet Muhammad(SAW) allowed sex slaves. Thanks
  8. How can one prove that the caliph after rasullulah was divinely appointed [i.e the sucessor of Rasullulah (SAW) was divinely chosen]
  9. Lets say (assumption) that someone says Imam Ali (AS) is closer to Allah than Muhammad (SAW). Will he bear a sin or will he have committed kufr? Furthuremore, what if people start saying the shias of ali are greater than prophets. Some even say that their names alone are superior to the prophets.To what extent can people demote prophet (AS), and venerate the imams as well as the scholars before it become kufr. Is this not the beginning of ghulu. [Mod Note: videos removed.]
  10. Salam can I find sunni sources with links to their source to hadith on Ali giving zakat while in ruku
  11. I have heard from many Sunni scholars 'Molana Tariq Jameel' that after the entering into Paradise everyone will allow to drink Wine(شراب), but i have never heard these kind of words from any Shia Scholar can anyone on this platform correct me if i am wrong that Shia also believe the same as sunni believes in this matter of wine in Paradise????
  12. Salaam, Are there any shias who originally sunni's on this form, if you can share about how and why you would converted that wuld be great
  13. Assalam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakathu, I came across the following hadiths on Facebook and wanted to know if they are authentic and if so what books are they mentioned in? Thanks for your help in advance. "Women are like flowers, they should be treated gently, kindly and with affection." Imam Ali (as) "The intelligent person seeks perfection and the ignorant person seeks possession." Imam Ali (as) "If the eyes of a female cry over a man who oppressed her, the angles curse him with every step he takes." Imam Ali (as)
  14. Salam, There is a hadith in sunni literature goes like this; عن أنس بن مالك قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم « يأتي على الناس زمان القابض على دينه كالقابض على الجمر » رواه الترمذي Anas ibn Maalik narrated that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing be upon him) said: “There will come upon the people a time when holding onto the religion will be like holding onto hot coal.” (Tirmidhi) I wonder if we have the same hadith in our sources as well? Thanks.
  15. A wahabi used this verse in the quran to prove that we will see Allah(swt). How would a shia refute this “Some faces that Day shall be Naadirah (shining and radiant). Looking at their Lord (Allaah)” [al-Qiyaamah :22-23]
  16. And We certainly gave Moses the Scripture, so do not be in doubt over his meeting. And we made the Torah guidance for the Children of Israel.And We made from among them(bani Israel) leaders (imams) guiding by Our command when they were patient and [when] they were certain of Our signs. (Surah 32:23-24) Since Imammate is superior to messenger hood, are the imams that succeeded Musa (as) superior to Musa
  17. According to Tafsir al Mizan regarding surah 13:7 "Ibn Shahrashoob narrated it from al-Hakim in Shawahidul Tanzeel, and al-Mirzabani in his book 'What was revealed about the Commander of the Faithful in the Qur'an.'Abdullah ibn Ahmad narrated in Zawaidul Masnad, and ibn abi Hatem al-Tabrani in al-Awsat and al-Hakim, and it was authenticated by ibn Mardawayh and Ibn Asakir from 'Ali ibn abi Talib, regarding Allah, the Exalted's words: 'surely you are a warner and for every people there is a guide'. He said: 'The Messenger of Allah is the warner and I am the guide' and in another expression: 'the guide is a man from Banu Hashim - meaning himself'. (ad-Durru'l-manthur)" In Mustadrak al-Hakim, with his chain from Ibrahim ibn al-Hakam ibn Dhaheer from his father, from al-Hakam ibn Jareer from Ibn Burayda al-Aslami, he said: “The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) called for purity while Ali ibn abi Talib was with him. Then the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) took Ali's hand after he had purified (himself) and held it firmly against his chest then said: 'surely you are a warner' and he meant himself, then he returned it to 'Ali's chest and said: 'and for every nation there is a guide'. Then he said to him: 'You are the light of the people, the peak of guidance, the ruler of the reciters. I bear witness that you are so'” Ibn Jareer, Ibn Mardawayh, Abu Na'eem in al-Ma'rifah and al-Daylami and Ibn Asakir and Ibn Najjar narrated that: “when the verse: 'you are a warner and for every nation there is a guide' was revealed the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) placed his hand on his chest and said: 'I am the warner' then he pointed with his hands to the shoulder of 'Ali (a.s) and said: 'you are the guide O Ali, by you the guided ones are guided after me'” (ad-Durru'l-manthur) Can anyone tell me whether these are authentic or not and can anyone send me wesbite references or pdf references for proof.
  18. https://www.quora.com/When-converting-to-Islam-how-did-you-choose-between-Shia-and-Sunni-Islam/answer/Majed-Jamaleddine/comment/15503190?__snids__=1496838197&__nsrc__=1&__filter__=all From Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Isa, from Al-Husain bin Saeed, from Muhammad bin Abi Umair, from Abi Ayub Ibrahim bin Usman Al-Khazaz, from Aban bin Taghlub who said: “I was in the presence of Abi Abdillah (Imam asSadiq), when a man from Yemen came up to Him.The Imam said to him, “O Yemeni brother, are there scholars among you?”He said, “Yes”.The Imam said, “What do your scholars achieve from their knowledge?”He said, “He travels in one night the travel distance of two months of the flight of the bird and the effects would remain.”Abi Abdillah said, “The scholar from Medina [referring to himself] is more knowledgeable then your scholars.”He said, “What does the scholar of Medina achieve from his knowledge?”The Imam said, ” He travels in one hour of the day, the travel distance of a year’s travel of the sun, to the extent that he cuts through twelve thousand worlds the like of this world of yours whose inhabitants are not aware that Allah created Adam (as) or Iblees”.He said, “They recognise You?”The Imam said, “Yes. There is no obligation upon them except for Our Wilayah and the keeping away from Our enemies.”[Source: Basaair Al-Darajaat, Vol. 8, Chapter. 12, Hadees. 15]-All narrators are trustworthy. Hadees is Saheeh.-There are more narrations with the same meaning, hence making the Matn “Tawattur” (frequently narrated)Muhammad bin Abdullah Al-Razi Al-Jaamoorani, from Ismail bin Moosa from his father, from his grandfather, from Abd Al-Samad bin Ali who said :A man came up to Ali bin Husain (as). Ali bin Husain (as) said to him, “Who are you?”.The man said, “I am an astrologer.” The Imam said, “So you are a fortune-teller.” He then looked at him and then said, “Shall I show you a man who since the time you have come to us, moved through 14 worlds, with each world being 3 times bigger than this world, without having moved from his place?”The man said, “Who is He?”The Imam said, “it is I, and if I wish, I can inform you what you ate and what you have stored in your house.”[Source: Basaair Al-Darajaat, Vol. 8, Chapter. 12, Hadees. 13]Imam Jafar Sadiq narrates:“We have been given the knowledge of the beginning and the end.”A person from the Imams (as) companions said: “May I be your ransom. Do you have Knowledge of the unseen (Ilm e Ghaib)?”Imam(as) replied:”Woe unto you. I know what is in the loins of men and womb of women. Woe unto you all. Open us your heart and see with your eyes and accept with your hearts. We are the proof of Allah in his creations. And none can accept this except all those believers whos hearts are as strong as the mount of Tahama and by the will of Allah.”[Source: Bihar Al Anwar Vol.26]And so on and so forth. I am sure you would know many more than I know.Edit: Just got sent this video. Do you guys really believe this stuff? Which Muslim does?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=... I was arguing with a sunni and he presented these arguments, can a shia please refute these and see where I went wrong with my arguments

  21. Salaam Alaykum, Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem I had a muslim Shia' convert ask me this question and I don't know how true this is: Those who love to wear imitation jewelry should understand that Rasulullah (S) has strictly prohibited use of it for both, man as well as woman. When he saw a ring of steel in the hand of a Muslim he warned: it is an ornament of the people of the hell. Listen! From you I have found signs and smell of Zoroastrians. That person removed his metallic ring and wore a ring of gold. Rasulullah(S) warned that your finger is in the Hell as long as this ring remains on your finger. Learned writer of "Daem al Islam", Syedna Qazi al Nauman has mentioned that afterwards that person questioned; should I not wear a ring? He (S) guided: [10] "You can wear a ring made of silver, which should not exceed one Misq'al". "Daem al Islam", Syedna Qazi al Nauman, vol. II, Qahera; also quoted by Tirmizi, Abu Dawood & Nisai According to Shi'a ahadith and fiqh, are we permitted to wear imitation jewellery? Thank you so much in advance,

    Angels

    Salam Alaikom, here this topic is about angels and to gather mainly material about angels for all of us to benefit from islamic sources. Have you ever thought why so little of speech in our communities about angels, are we not maybe, part angelic and part animal like, and maybe from spiritual realm perspective we are like this. Gathering of information is by this priority: From the Holy Quran Ahadith of Ahl al-Bait Peace upon Them What our Maraje say based on aql and naql of course Any speech from a scholar in your community, this includes your virtual community also, try to find one speech lo. Any books in any language is also welcome, on this topic both from Maraje and high scholars and other researches that is Muslims.
  23. A Sunni Hadith, (tirmidhi) stated that Jibril: "When pharaoh was drowning, I threw dirt in his mouth so he could not ask Allah (swt) for forgiveness. For if he had repented, Allah (swt) would have forgave him." To what extent is this Hadith true or backed up by our Shia sect? And if it is true, can someone please explain it to me as it contradicts a few things.
  24. Assalamu Alaykum I'd like to discuss the appearance of the Mahdi; but at the same time I'll try to keep it simple. I am sure you are all familiar with the hadith which says: سيملاء الارض عدلا و قصطا كما ملئت ضلما و جورة (He will fill the world with good just like it was filled with evil) Excuse my Arabic, I'm pretty sure I spelt something wrong.. And then we have another hadith which I've forgotten verbatim, but it was about the Sufyani, Khorasani and Yamani. Now my question is, if the Mahdi appears when there are two armies by his side opposing only one; isn't that time brighter than the time he had to go into "ghaybah" to survive from the people? Wassalam
  25. My first post here. I've been reading about Sunni and Shia issues for quite some time and also read some hadith on the subject of rejecting them. I'm quite confused on that and would require some understanding as to why the Shia Imams have said so. One of the hadith is the following: Imam Musa al-Kadhim [a] said, "Do not falsify anything that reaches you from us, or is attributed to us, even if you believe in the contrary. Surely, you do not know why we said it, nor upon what meaning [we said it in] or its description." حدثنا محمد بن الحسين عن محمد بن إسماعيل عن حمزة بن بزيع عن علي السناني عن أبي الحسن ع انه كتب إليه في رسالة ولا تقل لما بلغك عنا أو نسب إلينا هذا باطل وان كنت تعرفه خلافه فإنك لا تدري لم قلنا وعلى أي وجه وصفة. (Basa'ir ad-Darajat) Can some please assist me with the grading and reference. And also explain as to why one cannot discard a hadiths that go against the Quran and the established sunnah? Also, I was searchng for the hadith that is said by one of the Imams stating that if somebody rejects hadith, then he is outside the fold of wilayah. Can some brothers/sisters post those hadith with their references and grading for my benefit? Thank you.
