  1. (bismillah) This is something about ORIGIN of Sunnis and Shiites: All Muslims believe that GOD is the guider of humans and we need to get our program schedule from GOD. But 99.9999% of humans do not have direct connection with GOD. So, God sent Prophets to Guide them on be half of him (GOD). All Muslims accept the Mohammad (pbuh) is the Last prophet from God. He left Quran between the Muslims as a GUIDE book to find out what God wanted from humans. But, to get all the DETAILS of GOD orders, Quran is not enough. Quran is the Guidance book but with its special language. It has around 500 Ahkam ayas and many Ayas about heaven and hell and... But there are so many things which Quran is empty from them, For Example: The way to Pray. How to pray in the morning, in the noon ... ? How many Rakaats in Salat? How exactly to make Ghosl ? Both Shiites and Sunnis refer to Mohammad (pbuh) as the Describer of God orders. > So, our duty is to reach the Exact and Real words of Prophet (pbuh) as a Guider from God. We name the Words : HADITH > One of the Big issues in Shiat and Sonat is to determine the True Hadith from Fictitious Hadith. > The specialists have their own ways to understand if A Hadith is True or Not, 1. They review the Tellers of each Hadith If all the Tellers are Good people about Telling the Hadith they will accept the Hadith. 2. .... 3. .... What happened , after Death of Mohamad (pbuh) ? Caliphs (Abubakr, Omar Ibn Khatab, Othman, Mo'avia) announced that: WRITING THE AHADITH IS FORBIDDEN. Quran is enough for us! This was due to avoid TAHRIF Al Quran as they say. A period (around 100 Years) Writing the hadith was FORBIDDEN. > People who heared the Sentences of Rasoolollah (pbuh) started to Die, to Forget. Many of written Sentences have destroyed and burned by Colapha. No one allowed to write. Results After this 100 Years : 1. Every one forgot the Prophet (pbuh) words 2. New generation didn't have enough info about Prophet (pbuh) words. 3. Fake and fictitious words came to the mouth one by one. 4. ... After this 100 BLACK DIRTY YEARS, new Caliph Omar Ibne Abdol Aziz braked this rule. Everyone started to write Ahadith. Everything they Heard from Every one. Hundred Thousands of Ahadith have been written. FYI: Bokhari collected a few of these Ahadith in his Book because there were a lot of FAKE Hadithes. RESULT: More than 95% of AHADITH HAVE BEEN DESTROYED and what we have now is just some ORAL words through this 100 Years including Fake Ahadith. Islam just have Quran which is really from God and we accept it (WITHOUT ANY DOUBT). It has all the God's words without any TAHRIF. But, it is a Book and doesn't contain all Details. 1 Book and a few accepted Ahadith "Originaly" from Prophet (pbuh) is not enough. So, this Religion (Islam) BASED on imprecise documents. So, Islam is not a good religion at all. Because it doesn't guide us directly to God orders. Like Jewish and Christianity. Dear Sunnis, Please tell us how we can reach to God orders?
  2. Salam. Rebuttal to the deception of Ahmad al-Hassan with Shia hadith. Read here: http://shia-rafidah.com/articles/97-ahmad-13th-disciple.html#.VMQXz_6G98F
  3. Very interesting research. Highly suggest you take a look.

  4. (salam) Can somebody provide me with Ahlul Bayt(a.s.)'s ta'weel of Surah no.94? This has become my favorite chapter of the Qur'an, and I would really like to know the deeper meanings it contains, according to Ahlul Bayt(a.s.). Thank you
  5. (salam) Around a year ago, I was given an amulet with Quranic verses written on it as a gift. 3 months ago, I started wearing it and since then, more than once have I encountered people who told me that this was haram and bid'a. Is this true or not? I recall reading hadiths where people were advised to tie Quranic verses around their arms and such. (not sure whether these hadiths were from Prophet Mohammed (pbuh).
  6. Salam 'Alaykum. What is the Shia view of the founder of the Ottoman Empire? The sunnis say he was the prophesied King/Amir who would conquer Constantinople. They attribute this belief to a hadith. He was also part of the Naqshbandi Sufi Tariqa. What's our stance regarding him?
  7. Salaam everyone, I have recently been approached by a non-Muslim (an acquaintence of an acquaintence). This gentleman tried to debate Islam's potrayal as a barbaric and violent belief with me and got quite antagonistic about it. I managed to clear up several misconceptions (I hope) but am now struggling to give an eloquent and strong response to his latest point. Hoping to get some assistance from those who are more well spoken and knowledgable than me :D He put forward LOADS of verses from the Qur'an as "violent and extreme" - how do I explain this? I understand context plays a big part but can someone please help me draft some form of an answer? I've listed the verses he's mentioned below. If I copied and pasted his email to me it would take way too long to read. Quran (8:39, 8:57-60, 8:65-69), Quran (9:5, 14, 20, 29, 30 and 38-41) Quran (9:73, 88, 111, 123), Quran (17:16), Quran (18:65-81), Quran (18:65-81), Quran (25:52), Quran (33:60-62), Quran (47:3-4), Quran (47:35), Quran (48:17), Quran (48:29), Quran (61:4), Quran (61:10-12), Quran (66:9) Many thanks in advance to any help offered! I really want to make a strong point here :(
  8. Reflections from someone who hasn't thought or read about Ilm alRijal for a long time... When it comes to narrating from the Prophet, a Shia doesn't seem any more reliable than the Sunni. If I have reason to believe that a Sunni is reliable, and the same reason to believe that a Shia is reliable, then any narrations these two narrate would be of equal weight in terms of reliability. Not so when it comes to narrating from Ahlul Bayt. If the same Shia narrates a hadith that contradicts one from the same Sunni, the Shia hadith ought to be accepted over the Sunni hadith. This is for two related reasons: 1. The Shia believes that knowingly attributing a falsehood to Ahlul Bayt is akin to attributing a falsehood to the Prophet. In other words, it is a grave crime. The Sunni doesn't believe this. For him the Ahlul bayt are just pious people, and whilst it is haraam to lie about them, it's not the same as lying about the Prophet. 2. For the same reason, the Shia would be more careful when narrating from the Ahlul bayt compared to the Sunni. Therefore, the Shia would be less likely to make honest mistakes when narrating from them. He would take more care to remember and narrate as reliably as possible because he doesn't want to attribute a false utterance to the representatives of God on Earth. One conclusion to be drawn from the above is that Shia narrators are more trustworthy when it comes to narrating from the Ahlul Bayt, as their Aqeedah acts as a kind of barrier that helps prevent the attribution of falsehoods. This is a conclusion that both Shia and Sunnis ought to draw.

    Sunan Ibn Majah

    According to the book Islam: Beliefs and Practices the hadith book Sunan Ibn Majah is accepted by both Sunni and Shia Muslims. Is this true?
  12. Sallam dear brothers and sister As we all begin another year of learning, some of us can find it hard to keep going, to remain motivated. I myself have noticed that sayings of the prophets and Imams are a huge motivation, but I forget them and their effect wears off. So I want this thread to be a place full of sayings about education and knowledge which will inspire all students to study hard and maintain a high morale, every time they lose motivation they can just re-read this thread and be motivated again. So brothers and sisters please post some hadith on here or just sayings which will encourage people to seek knowledge. Thank you very much.
  13. As-salamu alaykum brothers. I am new here and need help: what do you guys think about this article?? i need to refute it for a misgiuded Christian. I know we are not all this way. Some Sunni can be but are we? I like what he says about tradition at least Blessings to you. from here: http://catholicanalysis.org/2014/09/29/jihad-and-heresy/
  14. (Bismillah) (salam) I'm quite a fan of Dr. Brown myself and I know some others here also are, so, I thought I'd share something I found quite interesting. The following is a video of him delivering a Khutba at a Mosque in Las Vegas early this year in march. Was very interesting and refreshing to see him speak in a non-academic setting and purely to and for a Muslim audience. His latest book: Misquiting Muhammad: The Challenge and Choices of Interpreting the Prophet's Legacy was published yesterday: I just discovered he has set up his own YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4L23Z_agh1qeV_odQfV6Vg that has his previous lectures as well as recent ones.

    Islam Is Not Just For Arabs

    I would like an answer to the interesting topic which is brought up by non believers that the religion of islam is only for arabs and isn't for mankind .Because many interesting questions arrive such as there hasn't been many translations of the Quran in other languages until only fairly recently.And that why should mankind have to all learn one language.All of these questions arrived after i looked at a very critical site which had brought up some misconceptions.The website can be found at this link http://m.modernghana.com/mobile/315031/1/islam-is-for-arabs.html. I would like answers to these misconceptions found on the link

The thawab and benefits of wearing aghigh: It has been reported that Imam Ridha (as) said that Imam Sadiq (as) stated: “Whosoever wears a ring whose stone is of aghigh will not become poor, and will be granted his needs in the best form.” In another hadith from Imam Sadiq (as) it has been narrated that he said that: “(Wearing) the aghigh while travelling brings protection.” Imam Sadiq (as) narrates from his father and grandfathers, from Imam Ali (as) that his Excellency said: “Wear the aghigh so that Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì blesses you, and so that you are protected from calamities.” Imam Baqir (as): “Whosoever wears the aghigh will continuously be benefited by it as long as it is worn, and a guard sent by Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì will protect that individual.” It has been reported that Imam Sadiq (as) said that his father’s grandfather (as) said: “Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì will protect whosoever engraves this phrase: (محمّد نبىّ اللَّه و علىّ ولىّ اللَّه) on the aghigh ring from a bad death and will verily die a death of fitrah (which is a good death). Imam Sadiq (as) has been narrated saying: “No hand that reaches out to Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì is dearer than the one that has an aghigh ring on it.” Imam Ridha (as) narrates from his father Imam Kadhim (as) from his father and grandfathers till Imam Husein (as) that his Excellency said: “When Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì created (Prophet) Musa ibn Imran and spoke with him in Mount Sinai, He (Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì) took a look at the ground (earth) and created the aghigh from His light and said: “(I swear) by myself that I have made it mandatory upon me not to chastise with the Fire whosever wears the aghigh, given that person loves Imam Ali (as). The thawab and benefits of wearing the firoozah Abdul-Mu’min Ansari says that he heard Imam Sadiq (as) saying: “The hand that bears the firoozah will never become needy.” The thawab and benefits of the jaz’/jiz’ yamani Muhammad ibnul-Husein narrates from his noble father that Imam Ali (as) said: “Wear the jaz’ yamani ring, for it keeps the evil of the disobedient devils away from you.” The thawab and benefits of wearing the zumurrud Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Nasr who would run some of Imam Musa ibn Ja’far’s (as) arons has reported that one day when the imam was reading a book, he told him: “Wearing the zumurrud brings comfort and isn’t followed by any hardship.” The thawab and benefits of the yaqut Husein ibn Khalid narrates that Imam Ridha (as) said that Imam Sadiq (as) has stated that: “Wear the yaqut, for it causes poverty to go away.” The thawab and benefits of the bulur Ali ibn Muhammad has narrated from Imam Sadiq (as) that he said: “Bulur is a good stone (for using on the ring).”[1] [2] Two points must be noted here: 1- Jewelry made of gold is haram for men, including gold rings.[3] 2- The benefits that were mentioned for these stones, aren’t for sure, meaning that these stones aren’t the whole cause for them, they are rather part of their cause and in other words, there might be other things that must be observed for these benefits to surely take place (for example, when it is said that wearing a certain stone keeps away poverty, it doesn’t mean that one can just wear it and sit and do nothing and wait for poverty to go), but of course the thawab of these stones according to these hadiths is for sure and one who wears them will be rewarded by Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì.

  19. (salam) There is a question that is looming over my head for quite some time. :wacko: Now, with regards to verifying a hadith's authenticity, what is the process in which I, as a layman, can know the grading of the hadith (i.e. sahih, da'eef, etc.). Apart from consulting a scholar, is checking the reliability of transmitters and, perhaps, pondering on the "mitn" (content) of the hadith, the only way to verifying what a hadith's grading is? I suspect there is a book where hadith numbers from certain books are listed side by side with the grading of the respective hadith, although I could be in error. Could anyone pave the way for me. Thanks. (wasalam)
  20. (salam) I am just a minor student of Islamic knowledge and It is my humble observation in this regard. I think that in Shia fiqh the rijal is not that important as it is in Sunni fiqh. We have twelve holy Imams (Golden Chain) of narrations. The narrators who reported from these twelve holy Imams (a.s) in their respective times hold less importance. Our faith is based on direct sayings of Imams (a.s) in their respective times who were being heard by many people/followers and there were less chances of deception and lie. On the other hand the Sunni reporters are common people. Their were reliable as well as non reliable reporters and they are separated in times from Prophet's times to the next generations. It is also important to note here that there is so much diversion of opinion regarding a reporter in Sunni side. Most of the time personal bias is also involved in weakening a reporter in Sunni side. Most of time we see in Shia side the hadiths are narrated in the following manner... SHIA REPORTS: Narrated A from Imam Jafar Sadiq (a.s) who reported from his father Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s) who reported from his father Imam Zainul Abideen (a.s) who reported from his father Imam Hussain (a.s) who said that Prophet (pbuh) said ....... SUNNI REPORTS: Narrated Abu Huraira that prophet (pbuh) said or Narrated A from B who narrated from C who narrated that Hazrat Aysha (r.a) said that prophet (pbuh) said... It appears in Sunni side the reliability of narrators is more random and diverse while in Shia side the weak narrators are easily picked up. Even otherwise, the authenticity of reports in Shia side depends more on "matan" and whether the report is in accordance with Quran and settled Sunnah.
  21. (bismillah) Question asked: Sir! There is a narration reported by Abu Hashim Dawood bin Qasim al Ja'fri which gives the testimony of Khidhr (a.s) regarding the 12 Imams, and shows their names. It is present in 1- Al Kafi, Sheikh Kulaini, 1/525 2- al-Imama wa al-Tabarsi fi al-Hira, p106 3- Kitab al-Ghaybah, Sheikh Numani, page 58 4- Kamal ad-Din, Sheikh Saduq, page 313 All of these show the end of narrators like this عن أحمدبن محمد البرقی، عن أبی هاشم داودبن القاسم الجعفری،عن أبی جعفر الثانی علیه السلام However, when we consult the book al-Mahasen, 2/332-333; which is the book of Ahmad bin Mohammad bin Khalid al Barqi, we find the chain like this عنه، عن أبیه،عن أبى هاشم الجعفر یرفع الحدیث قال: قال أبوعبدالله (ع)، So, here the narration is in Mursal form. Also, we find that the names of Imams are not mentioned. What is the explanation for that? What is your view on authenticity of the present copy of al-Mahasen? Concise answer Khalid bin Ahmad al-Barqi has reported a narration in his al-Mahasen almost with the same chain of transmission mentioned in the question. Great scholars like Sheikh Kulayni, Saduq and Nu'mani have reported this narration from al-Barqi. However, there is a slight difference between the narration they have reported and the one al-Barqi has recorded in his book in terms of the chain of transmission of the narration and its content. There is not much detail about the narration in Barqi's al-Mahasen. In order for us to examine this issue, we must know the author of the book and the book itself better. Thereupon, we would be able to study the chain of the transmission and the content of the narrations in al-Mahasen as well as its difference from the narrations found in other books. Conclusively, we can come to the conclusion that this narration which has been reported in different books has an identical content. The only difference is that the narration in some sources have been partially omitted but the chain of transmission is almost the same. Read the detailed answer. Detailed Answer Khalid bin Ahmad al-Baraqi has reported a narration in his al-Mahasen. We will provide details about the writer of the book and then we will verify the authenticity of the narration in question. 1) Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Khalid al-Barqi Sheikh Abu Ja'far, Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Khalid bin Abdu Rahman bin Muhammad bin Ali al-Barqi is one of Shiite's great jurisprudents and narrators. He is considered to be amongst the friends of the infallible Imams (A.S). Ahmad was born in a village known "Barq Rood" of Qom. He is originally from Kufa. His great grandfather, Muhammad bin Ali is one of the companions of Zaid bin Ali bin Hussein (A.S) who rose up to fight against the injustice and oppression of Bani Umayyah and he was martyred in Yusuf bin Umar's prison. While still a child, Khalid, Ahmad's grandfather, was forced to leave Kufa for Qom along with his father Abdur Rahman bin Muhammad.[1] Back then the city of Qom provided a safe haven for Shiites. That was why many great Shiite narrators and scholars were living in it. One of the important incidents that took place during the lifetime of Ahmad bin Muhammad al-Barqi was that Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Isa Ash'ari, the head of the city of Qom and one of the great Shiite narrators, sacked Ahmad bin Muhammad from the city of Qom because according to Ahmad Ash'ari, al-Barqi had narrated mursal (disconnected) traditions or narrations which he considered to be poor. However, after sometimes, Ahmad Ash'ari regretted his action and returned al-Barqi to Qom apologizing him. It has been reported that upon al-Barqi's death, Ahmad Ash'ari attended his funeral with barren foot so as to make up for the disrespect he had shown to him.[2] Finally, Ahmad al-Barqi died in the year 274 or 280 A.H.[3] leaving Shia a very valuable Hadith legacy. 2) Bibliography of "Al-Mahasen" One of the oldest hadith books ever written by Shiite scholars is al-Mahasen by Ahmad al-Barqi who is known to be a trustworthy scholar and one of the great hadith narrators. Sheikh Saduq, Kulayni, and Sheikh Tusi have relied on him and reported many of the narrations transmitted by him. Al-Mahasen consists of eleven chapters or headings: 1. "Al-Qaraeen": This chapter includes narrations regarding matters consisting of three things or four to ten things. For instance, "three things which saves a person from destruction or three things which causes destruction…" As well, the significance of speaking good of others and being benevolent to others has been discussed with traditions reported from the Holy Prophet (S) and his pure Ahlul-Bayt (A.S). 2. "Thawab al-A'maal": This is another title regarding good deeds and their rewards such as the reward of positive thinking about God and love of the Household of the Holy Prophet (S) as well as the reward of fasting etc. 3. "Iqab al-A'mal": This chapter discusses narrations regarding bad or abominable deeds such the punishment of a person who downgrades prayers or one who does not pay his Zakat on time or he who belittles a mumeen (believer). 4. "Al-Safwah wa al-Noor wa al-Rahmah": This section includes narrations about the creation of a believer, status and position of the Messenger of God and his household as well as Shiites, friendship and enmity for the sake of God. 5. "Masabih al-Zulm": This chapter deals with narrations about reason, knowledge, guidance, God's right on people, innovation, analogy and opinion, divine authorities over people. 6. "Al-'Ilalal": This chapter includes 130 narrations regarding various subjects including the differences of the companions of the Holy Prophet about wiping the feet, the worldly and heavenly matters, and how one should deal with both of them, the characteristics of the Quran and its commentary and reasons for certain rules. 7. "Al-Safar": Includes narrations about journeying and relevant issues such as the right of a fellow traveler, journey expenses and manners of travelling. 8. "Al-Ma'aakel": This title deals with narrations regarding edibles, drinks and matters related to them. 9. "Al-Maa": Includes narrations about water and rules relating to them. 10. "Al-Manafe'": Includes narrations about Istikhara, seeking advice and drawing lots. 11. "Al-Marafeq": Includes narrations about the causes and means of life, house, vehicle, and cleanness. As is observed, the titles of these chapters mostly relate to religious beliefs, epistemic issues and matters related to people's ordinary life. 3) A Study of Hazrat Khidhr's Testimony on the Imamate of Infallible Imams (A.S) Ahmad bin Muhammad al-Barqi has been the person to report a narration in "Al-Mahasen". The same narration has been narrated more perfectly by Sheikh Kulayni in "Al-Kafi" and we will cite Al-Kafi because we need the text to understand the narration thoroughly: «عن عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ الْبَرْقِیِّ عَنْ أَبِی هَاشِمٍ دَاوُدَ بْنِ الْقَاسِمِ الْجَعْفَرِیِّ عَنْ أَبِی جَعْفَرٍ الثَّانِی‏....» The translation of the narration is as such: "Imam Jawad (A.S) said: Ameerul Mu'mineen (peace be upon him), once was heading towards Al Mesjedul Haram accompanied by Al Hasan Bin Ali and Salman Al Farsi (may Allah be pleased with them), Ameerul Mu'mineen (peace be upon him) was leaning on the hand of selman, they entered the mosque, he took a seat in its hall, a man of an elegant guise and handsome face eame closer, bid Ameerul Muamineen As Salam, he (peace be upon him) bid him back As Salam; the man sat and started talking: “O’ Ameerul Mu'mineen; I ask you about three matters, if you give me a wrong answer about them, I shall know that these people are following you to their misfortune both in this world and in the hereafter, and if you give me a correct answer I shall know that you and them will be destined to the same fate. Ameerul Mu'mineen (peace be upon him) said: “Ask whatever you like?” The man said: “Tell me where man’s soul goes when he sleeps? And how does man remember and forget? And how do man’s offspring look like their uncles (both from his father and mother)? Ameerul Mu'mineen (peace be upon him) turned to Abi Muhammad Al Hasan and said: “O’ Aba Muhammad! Answer his question!” And Imam Hasan (A.s) answered all the three questions. Thereupon the man said: “I testify that there is no God but Allah and I shall remain faithful to this testimony; and I testify that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah and I shall remain faithful to this testimony; and I testify that you are the guardian on his will who will maintain his argument to people (pointing his finger to Ameerul Muamineen (peace be upon him)) and I shall remain faithful to this testimony; and I testify that you are the guardian of Ali’s will who will maintain his argument to people (pointing his finger to Al Hasan (peace be upon him)); and I testify that Al Hosain Bin Ali is the guardian on your father’s will who will maintain his argument to people; I testify that Ali Bin Al Hosain is Al Hosain’ds successor who will maintain his leadership; I testify that Muhammad Bin Ali is Ali Bin Al Hosain’s successor who will maintain his leadership, I testify that Ja'afar Bin Muhammad is Muhammad Bin Ali's successor who will preserve his leadership; I testify that Musa Bin Ja'afar is Ja'afar Bin Muhammad's successor, who will preserve his leadership ; I testify that Ali Bin Musa is Musa Bin Ja'afar's successor, who will maintain his leadership; I testify that that Muhammad Bin Ali is Ali Bin Musa's successor who will maintain his leadership; I testify that Ali Bin Muhammad is Muhammad Bin Ali's successor, who will preserve his leadership; I testify that Al Hasan Bin Ali is Ali Bin Muhammad's successor, who will maintain his leadership; and I testify that one of Al Hasan Bin Ali's sons whose name and nickname are not to be revealed till he is granted leaved to show himself thus to fill the earth with justice as it was filled with injustice, and I bid you Al Salam O’ Ameerul Muamineen s invoking on you Allah's mercy and grace; then he stood to his feed and was gone. Amerul Mu'mineen (peace be upon him): O’ Abo Muhammad! Follow him and check up where does he head; Al Hasan (peace be upon him) went after him, later he said: "the minute he put a foot off the mosque, he was gone, I went back to Ameerul Mu'mineen (peace be upon him) and informed him of that; he said: O’ Aba Muhammad, Do you know him? I said: "Allah his Messenger and Ameerul Muamineen better know." He (peace be upon him) said: He is Al Khidhr (peace be upon him).[4] As we see, this narration has been reported by Sheikh Kulayni (ra) from al-Barqi. Now we shall refer to al-Barq's al-Mahasen to see whether or not this narration has been reported at all in it. If it has, is it with the same wording and content? Al-Barqi has reported the narration in al-Mahasen as such: «عَنْهُ (البرقی) عَنْ أَبِیهِ عَنْ أَبِی هَاشِمٍ الْجَعْفَرِیِّ رَفَعَ الْحَدِیثَ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ(ع) دَخَلَ أَمِیرُ الْمُؤْمِنِینَ ص الْمَسْجِدَ وَ مَعَهُ الْحَسَنُ(ع) فَدَخَلَ رَجُل‏...»[5] The chain of transmission which he mentions is slightly different from the one mentioned by al-Kafi. It has mentioned in al-Barqi's narration that he narrated from his father and he from Abu Hashim and he from Imam Sadiq (A.S) without mentioning the names of the transmitters who were connected to Imam Sadiq (A.S). Thus, the hadith is Marfoo' [lit. elevated][6]. However, al-Kafi's chain of transmission is different. Therein, al-Barqi narrates from Abu Hashim Ja'fari and he from Imam Jawad (A.S). Therefore, in Al-Mahasen, al-Barqi has taken this narration from his father whereas in Al-Kafi no mention has been made of his father. Moreover, in al-Barqi's book, the narration has been reported from Imam Sadiq (A.S) whereas in Al-Kafi, it has been reported from Imam Jawad (A.S). In other words, scholars like Kulayni in his Al-Kafi, Sheikh Saduq in Kamal al-Deen[7] and Ilal al-Sharaye'[8] and Nu'mani in Al-Ghaibah[9] have reported this narration with various chains from al-Barqi. The narration is the same except for the last part of the chain of transmission i.e. from al-Barqi onward, the chain is similar to the chain of the transmission of hadith in Al-Kafi; it is not like the one in al-Barqi's al-Mahasen. However, all these books have taken the narration from its author! The report in al-Mahasen is also slightly different from the one al-Kafi. One is shorter than the other. It seems as though Al-Barqi has shortened the report in his book and late Kulayni has shorted it from another angle. The narration mentioned in Al-Kafi lacks the three questions which Hazrat Khidr asked Imam Hasan Mujtaba (A.S). This is quite clear from the explanation provided by Kulayni. On the other hand, we see that al-Barqi has given adequate attention to the answers given by Imam Hasan Mujtaba to the questions. Instead, the testimonies to the imamate of each of the infallible imam (A.S) have been omitted and it has mentioned after Khidr's testimony to the imamate of Imam Hussein (A.S) as such: "Khidr testified to the imamate of other imams to the last of them." Although Kulayni has reported this narration from al-Barqi and the clause "Khidr testified to the imamate of other imams" has not been mentioned in Al-Barqi's book, it is quite clear that this passage has been omitted from Al-Barqi's book for the sake of brevity. The same is true with al-Kafi's version of narration. He has not mentioned the three answers for the sake of brevity. For your confidence in the foregoing explanation, you can refer to Sheikh Saduq's "Kamal al-Deen wa Tamam al-Ne'mah"[10] or "'Ilal al-Sharaye'"[11]. Late Sheikh Saduq attached great importance to these narrations and it is for the same reason that he has reported the entire narration in which the answer to Khidr's three questions as well as Khidr's testimony to the imamate of each of the infallible imams have been mentioned. At the end, in order to complete the narration, the answers which Imam Hasan Mujtaba (A.S) gave to Hazrat Khidr's three questions and which have been reported in Sheikh Saduq's book are mentioned below: Imam Hasan (A.S) said: “As to where does man’s soul go when he sleeps; I say that his soul will hang to the wind, the wind hangs to the air until man starts to wake up, if Allah the Almighty gave leave to man to retain that soul; that soul will pull the wind which will- in turn-pull the air, thus the body will retain the soul; but if Allah the Almighty did not give leave to the soul to return to the body, the air will pull the wind which will pull the soul away, thus its owner will never regain it ever. As to how does man remember and forget: know that man’s heart (mind) is situated in a cavity with a lid covering it, if that man prays to Muhammad and his house hold and progeny a perfect prayer that lid will be removed from the cavity to let get into the heart thus man will remember what he has forgotten, if man does not pray to Muhammad and his household and progeny, or he offers an imperfect prayer, that lid will lighten over the cavity never giving space to light to get in, thus man will forget what he knows. As to the newborn and the similarity it carries to it uncles, I say: if man makes love to his woman maintaining his heart in tranquility, his nerves in calm order and his body in quietness, his sperm will be situated at the bottom of the womb, and the newborn will come into life carrying resemblance to his father and mother. If man makes love to his woman with perplexed heart, anxious nerves and troubled body, tribulation will be fall his sperm and the throw it either on a nerve that resembles the father’s brother, thus the newborn will carry resemblance to them, or it will throw the sperm on a nerve that resembles the mother’s brothers, thus the newborn will carry resemblance to them.[12] [1] Najashi, Ahmad bin Ali, Fehrest Asmaa Musannefi al-Shi'ah (Rijal Najashi), p. 76, Islamic Publications Office, Qom, sixth edition, 1365 (solar calendar).[2] Allamah Hilli, Hasan bin Yusuf, Khulasat al-Aqwal, p. 15, Manshurat al-Matba'ah al-Haideriyah, Najaf Ashraf, second edition, 1381 A.H.[3] Rijal Najashi, p. 76.[4] Kulayni, Muhammad bin Ya'qub, Al-Kafi, researched and corrected, Ghaffari, Ali Akbar, Akhundi, Muhammad, vol.1, p. 525, Dar al-Kotob al-Islamiyyah, Tehran, fourth edition, 1407 A.H.[5] Al-Barqi, Abu Ja'far Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Khalid, al-Mahasen, researched and corrected: Muhaddith, Jalaluddin, vol.2, p. 332, Dar al-Kotob al-Islamiyyah, Qom, second edition, 1371 A.H.[6] Hadith Marfoo' (lit. elevated) is a hadith attributed to the Prophet (PBUH) or Imams but it does not have a continuous chain of transmitters up to him.

SOURCE 1, SOURCE 2 'Ali: The Best of the Sahabah Explicit Testimonies of Sahih Sunni Ahadith Authored by Toyib Olawuyi Edition: 1 This book is an in-depth academic critique, and a thoroughly investigative refutation, of Shaykh Ibn Taymiyyah's Minhaj al-Sunnah on the specific question of Abu Bakr's alleged superiority over Amir al-Muminin 'Ali b. Abi Talib. The shaykh has adopted a two-pronged approach in his Minhaj. He presents arguments and proofs to support Abu Bakr's superiority and discredits all arguments and proofs in favour of 'Ali's superiority. Toyib Olawuyi has however placed all the primary submissions, evidences and denials of Ibn Taymiyyah under the microscope and punctured every single one of them severely using the Book of Allah, the sahih ahadith of the Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Jama'ah, and their strictest rijal verification methods.

    Need Clarity On Hadith

    Salaam, Imam al-Sadiq (AS) said, ‘Our affairs are hidden and veiled with a covenant, so Allah will humiliate whoever discloses us.’[al-Kafi, v. 2, p. 226, no. 15] Can any brother or sister shed some light on this hadith? Regards
  25. Selam everyone, So I have watched some islamic videos on youtube on this channel: SoldierOfAllah2 There were 2 videos that caught my attention regarding the comments bellow in which shia and sunni brothers were discussing about a wide range of topics such as: the prophet mentioning who his successor would be , that umar and abu bakr were tirans, that they threatened to burn the house of Hz.Ali and killed his wife fatima and her unborn child by kicking in the door. Here are some quotes of a Shia brother: The Prophet chose and favored and talked about and presented Ali to people more than any one else ever lived. Yet you still say he is equal to the Caliphs. Ali was courageous, two caliphs started running away from Khaybar. Yet Ali is still equal. Okay. Two caliphs killed the daughter of the Prophet, they're still equal. One angered Fatima, yet he is still equal to Ali. Ali slept in the bed of the Prophet, another didn't give the pencil to the Prophet when he was in the bed. Anyway, Ali is the first rightly guided caliph, not the fourth, as his right was deprived. Ali is infallible and an Imam using the proofs and evidence we put on the table from Quran and the hadiths. We do not blame the Prophet; we blame the people after the Prophet. Abu Bakr and Umar and Uthman. The Prophet did his job and chose Ali as his successor. Said the Quran and the progeny. You took one and threw the other away. I really want clarification on this subject as sunnis came with comments as: ollowing two narrations were reported by both sunni's and Shee'ahs. The first one is quoted from Saheeh al Bukhaaree and the second one is quoted from a Shee'ah book: "Takhlees ash-Shaafee" It is mutawaatir upon 'Alee radhiallaahu anhu ((Which of the people is best after the Messenger salallaahu alaihi wa salam? He said: "Aboo Bakr" I said: "Then whom?" he said "Then Umar" and I feared he would say Uthmaan then I said "then you?" he said "I am not except a man from the Muslims")) The second from a shia book. Shareek bin 'Abdillaah, the Taabi'ee, when he was asked, "who is better.. Abu Bakr or 'Alee" He said "Abu Bakr". The one who asked him said, "You say this while you are a Shee'ee?" He said, "Yes any one who does not say this is not a Shee'ah by Allaah, Alee took up this pulpit and said, "ألا إن خير هذه الأمة بعد رسول الله، أبي بكر ثم عمر" By Allaah the best of this Ummah after its prophet is Abu Bakr and then 'Umar so how can we turn down and reject his saying? By Allaah he was not a liar." Narrated from Alee from more than 80 ways of narration (Talkhees ash-Shaafee Vol. 2, 428) That is ali saying it in your own book. I don't take it as authentic because it has no chain of narration like all other shia books but just to prove a point to you I will use it. they try to tell that after our prophet(PBUH) passed away the people fairly chose abu bakr as his successor, and this while Hz.Ali was washing the body of our prophet even! Could I get some clarifications concerning what the prophet actually said in his speech about his successor and leaving 2 weights behind: the holy quran and the ahlul al bayt. furthermore about what abu bakr and umar did in their lives did they do bad things? also why do sunnis think that shia are making everything up?
