  1. The man of knowledge is the one who recognizes that what is known is very little compared to what is not known, and as a result he considers himself ignorant, and accordingly he increases his efforts to know more by going out in search of knowledge.
  2. This is an on-going project to translate the whole Introductory part of Ma'rifat al-Hadith by Shaykh Muhammad Baqir al-Bahbudi (of Sahih al-Kafi fame). This is a very good primer on the Sciences of Hadith - having a unique approach and arrangement. It is hoped that the novel methodology and views of the author will become clear as the translation proceeds. The Arabic book used in the translation can be downloaded here: https://archive.org/download/almoamltv_gmail_20140210/%D9%85%D8%B9%D8%B1%D9%81%D8%A9%20%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%AD%D8%AF%D9%8A%D8%AB.pdf Any and all questions arising from this are welcome. The History of Hadith and its Scholarship And Only a Few of My Slaves are Grateful <<All mankind were a single community; then Allah sent the Prophets as bearers of good news and warnings, and sent down with them the Book in truth, so that it may judge between the people concerning that about which they differed, and none differed in it except those who had been given it, after the manifest proofs had come to them, out of envy among themselves. So Allah guided those who had faith to the truth of what they differed in, by His will, and Allah guides whomever He wishes to the straight path>> [1]. In spite of the words of Allah <<And do not be like those who became divided and differed after manifest proofs had come to them, for such there will be a great punishment>>[2] - the Islamic community differed after its prophet despite what was in their hands of the manifest proofs and guidance, out of envy among themselves, and returned back on their tracks, fighting each other, what ruled over them was their opinions and their desires, and they have not ceased being divided, except the one upon whom the Lord has had mercy, and for this did He create them, and the words of your Lord have been fulfilled - 'I will fill Hell up with the Jinn and the men - both' After Guidance had Become Manifest to Them Muslim narrates in his Sahih Vol. 4 Pg. 1873 by his chain to Zayd b. al-Arqam who said: the messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم stood in our midst one day to speak - by the waters (pond) known as Khumm between Makka and Madina - so he praised Allah, and extolled his greatness, and counselled, and reminded, then he said: After this (introduction), O people, I am merely a mortal, it is feared that the messenger of my Lord (i.e. the angel of death) may come (to me) and I respond (to his call), I am leaving in your midst two weighty things, the first of them is the book of Allah, in it is guidance and light, so take by the book of Allah, and hold on to it, then he said: and the people of my house, I remind you of Allah about (your obligations to) the people of my house. And Ahmad b. Hanbal narrated in his Musnad Vol. 3 Pg. 14, he said: Narrated to us Aswad b. Amir reported to us Abu Israil from Atiyya from Abi Said who said: the messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم said: I leave in your midst two weighty things, one of them is greater than the other, the book of Allah, a stretched rope between the heaven and earth, and my descendants - the people of my house, for they will never separate until they return to me at the pond[3]. Out of Envy Among Themselves And the messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم said in his speech on the day of Nahr [sacrifice] in his farewell pilgrimage: <<... and do not oppress one another, and do not revert after me to being disbelievers, some of you striking the backs of others (in oppression), I have left in your midst that by which you will never be misguided - the book of Allah ...>>[4] And Ahmad b. Hanbal narrated in his Musnad Vol. 2 Pg. 104, he said: narrated to us Muhammad b. Ja'far narrated to us Shu'ba from Waqid from Muhammad b. Zayd that he heard his father narrating from Abdallah b. Umar from the prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم - that he said in the farewell pilgrimage: <<Woe upon you! do not revert after me to being disbelievers, some of you striking the backs of others'[5] Have You Turned Back on Your Heels? Muslim narrated in his Sahih Vol. 4 Pg. 2194 from Ibn Abbas who said: the messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم stood in our midst to speak - aiming to give a counsel, so he said: <<O people, you will be raised to Allah barefooted, naked and uncircumcised <<As We have initiated the creation so will We renew it, a promise on Us, verily We are the doers (capable of it)>>[6], surely, the first of all creation to be cloaked (with clothes) on the day of Judgement will be Ibrahim. Surely, some of the men of my community will be brought forth - so they will be taken towards the left hand-side, so I will say: O Lord - my companions! so it will be said: you do not know what they innovated after you, so I will say as the righteous servant: <<And I was a witness over them as long as I was with them, so when you caused me to die - you were the One who was a watcher over them, and you are a witness over all things, if you punish them then they are your slaves, and if you forgive them then you are the strong the wise>>[7], he said: so it was said to me: they did not cease turning back on their heels (re-tracing their foot steps back-wards) since you left them'[8] And Do Not Corrupt the Land After its Reconciliation In Sahih al-Kafi no. 4354 from Muhammad b. Muslim from Abi Ja'far عليه السلام about the words of Allah <<corruption has appeared in the land and the sea - due to what the hands of men have wrought>>[9] he said: that is by Allah when the Ansar said: from us will be a ruler and from you a ruler! (i.e. at Saqifa) There is Nothing after Truth except Misguidance Abu Amr al-Kashshi narrated - based on what is present in the selection of his Rijal (i.e. by al-Tusi) Pg. 7 - from the book of al-Ayyashi Muhammad b. Mas'ud who said: narrated to me Ali b. al-Hasan b. Fadhal narrated to me al-Abbas b. Amir and Ja'far b. Muhammad b. Hakiym from Aban b. Uthman from al-Harith b. Mughira al-Nasri who said: I heard Abd al-Malik b. A'yan asking Aba Abdillah عليه السلام - so he did not cease asking him (the same question - due to his amazement at it) - until he said to him (out of exasperation): so the people were destroyed then (after the messenger of Allah)? so he said: yes, by Allah, O the son of A'yan, all the people were destroyed, I (Abd al-Malik) said: whomever was in the east and the west? he said: it (the whole earth) was opened up to misguidance, yes, by Allah, they were all destroyed, except three, then joined Abu Sa'san, and Ammara, and Shatira and Abu Umara, so they became seven. All the People Returned Back except Three? Abu Amr al-Kashshi narrated in his Rijal Pg. 7 from the book of al-Naysaburi Muhammad b. Ismail Bandafar who said: narrated to me al-Fadhl b. Shadhan from Ibn Abi Umayr from Ibrahim b. Abd al-Hamid from Abi Basir who said: I said to Abi Abdillah عليه السلام: all the people returned back (apostatized) except three - Abu Dhar and Salman and Miqdad? so Abu Abdillah عليه السلام said: so whereat is Abu Sasan and Abu Umara al-Ansari (in your list)? True Selflessness And in Sahih al-Kafi no. 4407 from Abi Ja'far عليه السلام who said: the people - when they did what they did, that is pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr, nothing prevented Amir al-Mu'minin عليه السلام to call to himself (seek support as a rival to them), except looking at (the condition of) the people, and fearing for them, that they will return back on Islam (apostatize), and begin worshiping the idols (anew), and they will not testify that there is no god but Allah, and that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah, so it was more preferable to him to agree to what they had done over them leaving Islam totally ... (until the end of) the Hadith. Back to the Age of Ignorance And in Sahih al-Kafi no. 4408 from Abd al-Rahim al-Qasiyr who said: I said to Abi Ja'far عليه السلام: the people are astonished when we say: the people as a whole turned back (apostatized), so he said: O Abd al-Rahim, the people reverted - after the messenger of Allah was taken - to being the people of Jahiliyya (Ignorance), the Ansar withdrew (from Abu Bakr) but they did not withdraw for something good (i.e. to favor the rightful person – rather it was to feed their tribal inclinations), they began pledging the allegiance to Sa'd while chanting the chants of Jahiliyya: 'O Sa'd, you are - the hoped in (our hope to reach the objectives), and your hair is - the finely styled, and your competitor (challenger) is - the pelted upon (repelled by stones)' And Ibn Abi al-Hadid narrated in his commentary on the Nahj, Vol. 2 Pg. 3, published in Lebanon, from the book of Saqifa by Abi Bakr Ahmad b. Abd al-Aziz al-Jawhari, and in it - it is recorded that - Ma'n b. Adi said to Umar b. al-Khattab, this grouping from the Ansar have gathered in the Saqifa of Bani Saida and with them is Sa'd b. Ubada - they revolve around him and say: 'you are - the inspirer of hope, and your scion (son) is - the inspirer of hope'. And they Drunk in their Hearts the Love of the Calf And in Sahih al-Kafi no. 4409 from Abi Ja'far عليه السلام who said: the people became after the messenger of Allah unto the likeness of those who followed Harun and those who followed the calf ... (until the end of) the Hadith. The Mighty Ones (Leaders) of Bani Hashim? In Sahih al-Kafi no. 4380 from Sadir who said: we were with Abu Ja'far عليه السلام - so we recalled what the people had done after their prophet, and their subjugation of Amir al-Mu'minin عليه السلام, so a man from the group (present) said: may Allah set aright your affairs, where were the leaders of Banu Hashim? and what was their number (how many were they?) so Abu Ja'far عليه السلام said: and who was left of the Bani Hashim? verily it was Hamza and Ja'far, and they had both passed on, and were left with him two weak and insignificant individuals, new comers to Islam, Abbas and Aqil, and they were from the freed slaves (after the conquest of Makka). And al-Kashshi mentioned in his Rijal Pg. 6 quoting from the book of Hisham from Abi Khalid al-Kabuli from Abu Ja'far عليه السلام who said: Ali b. Abi Talib عليه السلام was among you in Iraq, fighting his enemies, and with him were his companions, and there was not within them fifty men who recognized him with the true recognition (as he should be recognized), and his true recognition is acknowledging his Imamah. to be continued ...

  3. There are two hadith about scheduling the day. Like one hadith is that "One should divide his/her 24 hours into 4 parts from which one part should be for sustenance another part for family etc. etc." and similarly another hadith states that "One should divide his/her 24 hours into 6 parts from which one part should be for sustenance another part for family another for sleeping/rest etc. etc." I had not remembered it fully so I want the original text. I want this hadith with reference. Can anyone provide it?
  4. Salam aleykum wr WB I have found a very beautiful Hadith about a girl from the Roman Empire who convert to Shia Islam. The problem is its impossibile to translate from German to English its long and complicated to translate. The Hadith is Al-Ghaiba, from Sheikh at-Tusi (ra), Hadith Nr. 178. I would be really thankful if someone found the source in English. Wa Salam
  5. Sallam! According to what I learnt from my sunni school, non-obligatory prayers, including the fard prayers done at a young age, can take the place of fard prayers which have been neglected during the years of adolescence. Is this true? Wassallam
  6. Does anyone know if the following hadith is authentic and if so, who narrated it?
  7. Salam, Blessed Friday for you all In ShaAllah! كان علي (ع) إذا أراد أن يوبخ الرّجل يقول له : أنت أعجز من التارك الغسل ليوم الجمعة ، فإنه لا يزال في همّ إلى الجمعة الأخرى العلل 1/270 Hadith above says that Imam Ali used to reproach someone by saying : You are lazier than the one who is intentionally abandoning the Ghusl of the day of Friday. For such a man will live worried to the next Friday. I think it is one of the many mercies upon us that we are getting a reward for this act. At times the mind is very preoccupied no matter how hard we try to clear it up. Praying and reputation of Quran and Du'a becomes difficult to be done with full focus. But here we are being rewarding for a physical act that dose not require plenty of mind work. Just a bath on the day of Friday. But see how huge amount of bounty is sent toward us for just doing it with only the intention? قال النبي (ص) : من اغتسل يوم الجمعة ومسَّ من طيب امرأته إن كان لها ، ولبس من صالح ثيابه ، ثم لم يتخطَّ رقاب الناس ، ولم يلغُ عند الموعظة ، كان كفارة لما بينهما Prophet said : Whoever performed the Ghusl of Friday , put some perfume (from his wife if she has any), wore the best of his clothes then went to mosque and did not skip people's necks to reach to front lines then did not speak laghu during the sermon. This act will cover up any flaw of him during the upcoming week up to next Friday ^rough translation. قال الصادق (ع) : إذا اغتسل أحدكم يوم الجمعة فليقل : " اللهم !.. اجعلني من التوابين ، واجعلني من المتطهرين " Imam Sadiq said : After performing Ghusl of Friday say : O Allah , make me from those who repent and those who purify themselves." قال النبي (ص) لعلي (ع) في وصيته له : يا علي !.. على الناس كل سبعة أيام الغسل ، فاغتسل في كل جمعة ، ولو أنَّك تشتري الماء بقوت يومك وتطويه ، فإنه ليس شيء من التطوُّع أعظم منه . The prophet said to Imam Ali in his will : O Ali, there is one ghusl/bath upon people every 7 days, so perform ghusl every Friday even if you had to buy water with your day money and stay without money after wards, for there is nothing with greater reward from all the recommended acts than the ghusl of Friday. Yep so you all lazy people, go and bath XD
  8. Salam all, The question I am going to ask today might be offensive to some.... But I consider it good to ask the questions that pop up in mind and deviate you from religion... So brothers the question is that 1. How is Quran authentic ?? As all of us know that Quran wasn't compiled in the lifetime of Muhammad (SAW) instead it was compiled in reign of Abubakr... So what's the proof for authenticity of Quran? As far as I think....the human mind is not capable of learning the exact same words for years..Moreover if some people knew the exact same words what is the surity that all of them were right? 2. How are the ahadith authentic? Hadittoo warent compiled at Muhammad's(Saw) time... They were compiled by ta'ab e tabain so what it the proof of them being authentic and the proof that the exact same words of prophet were passed on generation to generation ... the questions seem valid.. Don't they? I will be thankful to anyone who would like to contribute in the answers section...
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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!
  13. 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?
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. How can one prove that the caliph after rasullulah was divinely appointed [i.e the sucessor of Rasullulah (SAW) was divinely chosen]
  17. 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.]
  18. Salam can I find sunni sources with links to their source to hadith on Ali giving zakat while in ruku
  19. 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????
  20. 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
  21. 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)
  22. 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.
  23. 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]
  24. 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
  25. 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.
