  1. A lot of our Sunni friends claim that Muawiyya is the uncle of the believers, he is a noble companion and that we should refrain from speaking on him. If anybody does say something about Muawiyya he is called a fasiq, Shiite and so on. Let us examine sunnis case for Muawiyya. I'm Gonna go through 6 ahadith our sunni friends use and show that they are either weak or not really virtues but in reality they expose Muawiyya for the man he really was. Claim of virtues for Muawiyya Hadith 1: Prophet Peace be upon him said " O Allah ! Teach Muawiyya The book, Math, and protect him from the Punishment " Musnad Shameen page 100 Here is the Arabic: حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو زُرْعَةَ، وَأَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ يَحْيَى الدِّمَشْقِيَّانِ، قَالا: ثنا أَبُو مُسْهِرٍ، ثنا سَعِيدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ الْعَزِيزِ، عَنْ رَبِيعَةَ بْنِ يَزِيدَ، عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ أَبِي عَمِيرَةَ الْمُزَنِيِّ وَكَانَ مِنْ أَصْحَابِ النَّبِيِّ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ قَالَ لِمُعَاوِيَةَ: " اللَّهُمَّ عَلِّمْهُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِسَابَ، وَقِهِ الْعَذَابَ This hadith is weak however because of the narrator Ibn Abi Umayr who narrates directly from the Prophet(saw). Yet it is not established that he was a companion of the Prophet thus the hadith is Mursal. Ibn Abd al bar says the following about Ibn Abi Umayr. Ibn Abd al bar: His companionship is not proven. Here is the Arabic: قال ابن عبد البر : لا تصح صحبته Source: Tahdib al Tahdib page 403-404 Scan: Azadi also mentioned that his companionship is debated. Here is the Arabic: ويقال الأزدي مختلف في صحبته Source: http://library.islamweb.net/newlibrary/display_book.php?flag=1&bk_no=56&ID=7461

  3. أبواب السبعين وما فوقه (PART 24-ON SEVENTY AND ABOVE-NUMBERED CHARACTERISTICS) A NUMERIC CLASSIFICATION OF TRADITIONS ON CHARACTERISTICS Translation of AL-KHISAL, by Sheikh Saduq لامير المؤمنين عليه السلام سبعون منقبة لم يشركه فيها أحد من الامة IMAM ALI HAS 70 CHARACTERISTICS WHICH NONE HAVE ( Ahmad ibn al-Hassan al-Qat’tan, Muhammad ibn Ahmad al-Senani, Ali ibn Musa al-Daq’qaq, al-Hussein ibn Ibrahim ibn Hisham al-Mokattib[1036] and Ali ibn Abdullah al-Warraq - may God be pleased with them - narrated that Abul-Ab’bas Ahmad ibn Yahya ibn Zakaria al-Qat’tan quoted on the authority of Bakr ibn Abdullah ibn Habib, on the authority of Tamim ibn Buhlool, on the authority of Suleiman ibn Hakeem, on the authority of Soor ibn Yazid, on the authority of Makhul,) “The Commander of the Faithful Ali ibn Abi Talib (MGB) said, ‘Indeed those companions of the Prophet who know the whole Quran by heart all know that there is no one amongst them who has any virtues which I do not have, or I may even be surpass him in that respect. However, I have seventy virtues which none of them has.’ I asked, ‘O Commander of the Faithful! Please inform me about those virtues.’ Then Ali (MGB) said, ‘1- I never associated any partners with God - even for a twinkling of an eye. I never worshipped Lat and Uzza. 2- I never drank any alcohol. 3- I have been with God’s Prophet since my childhood when God’s Prophet (MGB) asked my father to become my guardian. From then on I have been with him, eaten and drank with him, associated and talked with him. 4- I am the first person to believe in and submit to Islam. 5- God’s Prophet (MGB) told me, ‘O Ali! Your relationship to me is like that of Aaron’s relationship to Moses (MGB) except that there will be no Prophets after me.’ 6- I was the last person who separated from God’s Prophet (MGB) and placed him in his grave. 7- When God’s Prophet (MGB) wanted to go to the cave of Sowr, he put me to sleep in his own bed and covered me up with his blanket. When the polytheists came to his house, they suspected that I was Muhammad (MGB). They woke me up from sleep and asked, ‘What happened to your friend?’ I said, ‘He (MGB) went to take care of something.’ They said, ‘If he had escaped, then Ali would have escaped along with him.’ 8- God’s Prophet (MGB) taught me one-thousand gates of knowledge each of which opens up to one-thousand other gates. 9- God’s Prophet (MGB) told me, ‘When the Honorable the Exalted God resurrects the first up to the last of the people on the Resurrection day, He will install a pulpit for me above that of all the other Prophets and install apulpit for you above that of all other Trustees. Then you shall climb up it. (To be Continued ..........)
  4. What are the characteristics of those whom Allah loves and hates? For more than a billion Muslims around the globe, the Qurān reproduces God’s very own words. To find our answer whom are loved and what constitutes their important characteristics, let's turn the pages of the Quran. I searched the Quran with the keywords of یحب [whom He loves] and لایحب [whom He dislikes] and the result is somehow noteworthy. The numbers in the brackets signify the number of Chapters and Verses of the Quran respectively. In the light of the Quranic verses, one can find who are to be loved and who are to be hated by the most merciful Creator. Moreover, his creatures can follow the suit. Allah loves those who have beautified themselves with the following characteristics: 1. Indeed, Allah loves the virtuous. (02:195), (03:134), (03:148), (05:13), (05:93). 2. Indeed, Allah loves the penitent and He loves those who keep clean (02:222), (09:108). 3. Yes, whoever fulfills his commitments and is wary of Allah, Allah indeed loves the God wary (03:76), (09:04), 4. And Allah loves the steadfast (03:146). 5. Indeed, Allah loves those who trust in Him (03:159). 6. Indeed, Allah loves the just (05:42), (49:09), (60:08), 7. Indeed, Allah loves those who fight in His way in ranks, as if they were a compact structure (61:04). Allah does not like the individuals with the following characteristics: 1. Indeed, Allah does not like transgressors (02:190), (05:87), (07:55). 2. Allah does not like corruption (02:205). 3. Allah does not like any sinful ingrate. (02:276). 4. Indeed, Allah does not like the faithless (03:32), (30:45). 5. And Allah does not like the wrongdoers (03:57), (03:140), (42: 40). 6. Indeed, Allah does not like anyone who is a swaggering braggart (04:36), (31:18), (57:23). 7. Indeed, Allah does not like someone who is treacherous and sinful (04:107). 8. Allah does not like the disclosure of [anyone's] evil [ conduct] in speech except by someone who has been wronged, and Allah is all-hearing, all-knowing (04:148). 9. And Allah does not like the agents of corruption (05:64), (28:77) 10. Do not be wasteful; indeed, He does not like the wasteful (06:141), (07:31), 11. Indeed, Allah does not like the treacherous (08:58). 12. Indeed, He does not like the arrogant (16:23). 13. Indeed, Allah does not like any ingrate traitor (14:38). 14. Do not exult! Indeed, Allah does not like the exultant (28:76). A man/woman with primordial and innate nature Loves and Hates whom his Lord likes and dislikes accordingly. May Allah grant us the blessing to fall in the first category. Thanks May Allah Bless Us All
  5. I've studied all the hadiths in Majma al Zawa'id regarding merits of Imam Ali (peace be upon him), his wife and his two sons. I selected some authentic hadiths, translated them into Arabic and have saved them in this article. http://virtuesimamali.blogspot.com/
  6. 44 HADITHS FOR VITUES of IMAM ALI (A.S.) I have got these hadiths mentioning the virtues of Imam Ali AS, from facebook and these are being presented for sharing of information: HADITH 1: عن أبي حمزة الثمالي قال: سمعت علي بن الحسين عليهما السلام يقول: إن فاطمة بنت أسد رضي الله عنها ضربها الطلق وهي في الطواف، فدخلت الكعبة فولدت أمير المؤمنين علي عليه السلام فيها. Abu hamzah Thumali narrats that he heard Imam al-Sajjad ('a) say: Fatimah bint Asad ('a) was circumambulating the Ka'bah when suddenly she appeared to feel the pangs of birth. She entered the Ka'bah and it is in the Ka'bah that 'Ali (a) was born. HADITH 2: وروي عن عتاب بن أسيد أنه قال: ولد أمير المؤمنين علي بن أبن طالب عليه السلام بمكة في بيت الله الحرام يوم الجمعة لثلاث عشرة ليلة خلت من رجب، وللنبي صلى الله عليه وآله ثمان و عشرون سنة، قبل النبوة باثنتين عشرة سنة Attab ibn Usayd narrates: Amir al-Mu'min 'Ali ibn Abi Talib ('a) was born on Friday, the thirteenth day of Rajab, in the Holy precint of Ka'bah, in Mecca, twelve years before the Prophet's (proclamation of) Messengership of Allah. At that time the Prophet (s) was twenty eight years old. HADITH 3: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: خير من يمشي على وجه الأرض بعدي علي بن أبي طالب. The Prophet (S) said: 'After me, the best to walk on earth is 'Ali. HADITH 4: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله لعلي عليه السلام: أنت خير أمتي في الدنيا والآخرة. The Prophet (S) said: You are the best of my Followers both on earth and in the hereafter. HADITH 5: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: علي خير البشر، من أبى فقد كفر. The Prophet (S) said: 'Ali is the best of Mankind. Only an infidel will dispute this. HADITH 6: قال النبي صلى الله عليه وآله: يا علي! أنت خير البشر، ولا يشك فيك إلا كافر. The Prophet (S) said: O 'Ali, you are the best of mankind. Only an infidel would deny this. HADITH 7: قال أبان عن سليم قال: جلست إلى علي عليه السلام بالكوفة في المسجد و الناس حوله، فقال: سلوني عن كتاب الله، فو الله ما نزلت آية من كتاب الله إلا وقد أقرأنيها رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله و علمني تأويلها. Aban reports frm salim who said: With many others we were sitting in the mosque at Kufah, when 'Ali (a) said: Before you lose me (forever) ask me about anything about the Book of Allah. There is not a single verse that was not recited to me by the Prophet (S) who also explained to me its exoteric and esoteric meanings. HADITH 8: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: لكل نبي وصي ووارث، وإن عليا وصيي ووارثي. The Prophet (S) said: Every Prophet left behind a testamentary trustee as his successor and this 'Ali here is my testamentary trustee and my heir. HADITH 9: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: يا علي! أنت زوج سيدة النساء العالمين وخليفة خير المرسلين. The Prophet (S) said: O 'Ali, you are the spouse of the doyenne of all women and you are the vicegerent of the best of the Prophets. HADITH 10: عن أبي ذر الغفاري قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: أنا خاتم الأنبياء، و أنت يا علي! خاتم الأوصياء إلى يوم الدين. Abu dhar al-Ghifari narrates that the Prophet (S) said: I am the last of the Prophets and you, O 'Ali, are the last of the testamentary trustees until Doomsday. HADITH 11: عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله قال: من أراد منكم النجاة بعدي فليتمسك بولاية علي بن أبي طالب، فإنه الصديق الأكبر والفاروق الأعظم، وهو إمام مسلم بعدي. The Prophet (S) said: Whoever desires to attain salvation should adhere to the vicegerency of 'Ali bni abi Talib, for he is the Greatest of all truthful men and the eminent distinguisher and the Imam of all Muslims. HADITH 12: عن أبي ذر قال: قال رسول الله صلى عليه وآله: من سره أن يحيى حياتي ويموت مماتي ويسكن جنة عدن التي غرسها ربي، فليتول عليا بعدي، وليوال وليه، وليقتد بالأئمة من بعده. فإنهم عترتي، خلقهم الله من لحمي ودمي، وإياهم فهمي وعلمي. ويل للمكذبين بفضلهم من أمتي! لا أنالهم الله شفاعتي. Abu dhar narrates that the Prophet (s) said: Whoever desires to live like me and die like me and to have his eternal abode in the Paradise created by my Lord, should acknowledge 'Ali as his guardian, after me. He should befriend his friends and abide by the Imams succeeding him. They are my offspring created from my flesh and blood and Allah has endowed them with my Wisdom. Owe upon my followers who deny their merits, for such deniers would be deprived of my intercessions. HADITH 13: عن جابر قال: سمعت ابن مسعود يقول: قال النبي صلى الله عليه وآله: حرم على النار من آمن بي وأحب عليا وتولاه، ولعن الله من مارى عليا وناوأه. علي مني كجلدة ما بين العينين والحاجب. Jabir says that ibn Mas'ud sait that the Prophet (s) said: Allah has forbidden hellfire on anyone who declares his faith and adores 'Ali ibn Abi Talib. Allah's curse upon those who oppose 'Ali, confront him and bear enmity towards him. The relationship between me and 'Ali is like the one between the eyeball and eyelid. HADITH 14: عن ابن عباس قال: قال النبي صلى الله عليه وآله: لو يعلم الناس متى سمي علي أمير المؤمنين ما أنكروا فضله. سمي أمير المؤمنين و آدم بين الروح والجسد. فقوله تعالى: "وإذ أخذ ربك من بني آدم من ظهورهم ذريتهم وأشهدهم على أنفسهم ألست بربكم قالوا بلى". فقالت الملائكة: بلى، فقال الله تبارك وتعالى: "أنا ربكم ومحمد نبيكم وعلي وليكم و أميركم". Ibn Abbas: The Prophet (s) said: If only people knew 'Ali was conferred the tithe of 'Commander of the Faithful' they would n0t hesitate to acknowledge his merit. 'Ali was conferred the title of 'Amir al-Mu'minin' even as Adam was in the midst of the process of being vivified. Allah said: "When your Lord took out the progeny of Adam and took the covenant from them by Asking 'Am I not your Lord? And when every one, including the angels affirmed, the Lord said, 'I am your Lord, Muhammad is the Messenger and 'Ali is the Guardian over you. HADITH 15: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: يا علي! أنت أمير أمتي وحجة الله عليها بعدي، قولك قولي، وأمرك أمري، ونهيك نهيي، ومعصيتك معصيتي، وطاعتك طاعتي، وزجرك زجري، وحزبك حزبي، وحزبي حزب الله: "ومن يتول الله ورسوله والذين آمنوا فإن حزب الله هم الغالبون". The Prophet (s) said: O 'Ali, you are the commander over my community and Allah's authority, after me. Your word is my word and your command is my command. Whatever you prohibit is also prohibited by me. Your army is my army and my army is Allah's legion. "When one is chosen by Allah as the guardian over the believers, he shall certainly be victorious". HADITH 16: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: علي طاعته طاعتي، ومعصيته معصيتي. The Prophet (S) said: Obedience to 'Ali is obedience to me. To disobey 'Ali is like disobeying Me. HADITH 17: عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله أنه قال: فرض الله عليكم طاعة علي بعدي كما فرض عليكم طاعتي، ونهاكم عن معصيته كما نهاكم عن معصيتي. حبه إيمان وبغضه كفر. أنا وهو أبوا هذه الأمة. The Prophet (s) said: Allah has also made obedience to 'Ali obligatory upon you in the same manner in which He made obedience to me mandatory upon you. Like forbidding disobedience to me, Allah has forbidden disobedience to 'Ali. To be friend him is faith and hatred for him is infidelity. He and I are like fathers of this community. HADITH 18: في حديث عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله: يا بن عباس! إذا أردت أن تلقى الله وهو عنك راض، فاسلك طريقة علي بن أبي طالب، ومل معه حيث مال، وارض به إماما، وعاد من عاداه، ووال من والاه. The Prophet (s) told ibn 'Abbas: If you desire Allah to be pleased with you when you meet Him, follow the path of 'Ali ibn Abi Talib. Accept him as your Imam and follow him scrupulously. Be friend to his friends and a foe to his foes. HADITH 19: عن أبي ذر رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله لعلي عليه السلام: من أطاعني فقد أطاع الله، ومن عصاني فقد عصى الله، ومن أطاعك فقد أطاعني، ومن عصاك فقد عصاني. Abu dhar narrts that the Prophet (s) told 'Ali ibn Abi Talib: Whoever obeys me, in fact obeys Allah, and whoever disobeys me, indeed disobeys Allah. Whoever obeys you obeys me and whoever disobeys you, disobeys me. HADITH 20: عن ابن عباس قال: سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله يقول: أنا وعلي والحسن والحسين وتسعة من ولد الحسين مطهرون معصومون. Ibn Abbas narrates that the Prophet (S) said: From the progeny of myself, 'Ali, al-Hasan and al-Husain there shall be nine successive offspring who would be chaste and immaculate. HADITH 21: عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله أن الله أوحى إليه: أن عليا راية الهدى، و إمام أو ليائي، و نور من أطاعني. The Prophet (S) said: Allah revealed to me that 'Ali is the standard of Guidance and the Imam of my friends and the effulgence of my obedient devotees. HADITH 22: عن زيد بن أرقم قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: ألا أدلكم على ما إن تمسكتم عليه لم تهلكوا؟ إن إمامكم ووليكم علي بن أبي طالب. فنا صحوه وصدقوه، فإن جبرئيل أمرني بذلك. Zayd ibn Arqam narrates that the Prophet (S) said: Would you people n0t wish to know about the thing that would save you frm destruction, if only you could submit to it? Know you then 'Ali ibn Abu Talib is your Imam and Leader. Obey him, follow his instructions and have faith in his words. I am so commanded by Gabriel to inform you. HADITH 23: بالإسناد في حديث قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: يا علي! أنت الإمام بعدي و الأمير، و أنت الصاحب بعدي و الوزير. وما لك في أمتي من نظير. It is authentically reported that the Prophet (s) said: O 'Ali, you are the leader and c0mmander after me. You are my vizier and the authority over my c0mmunity. HADITH 24: عن ابن عباس: عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله يقول: أني قد جعلت عليا أمير المؤمنين، فمن تآمر عليه لعنته، ومن خالفه عذبته، يا محمد! إني قد جعلت عليا إمام المسلمين، فمن تقدم عليه أخزيته، إن عليا سيد الوصيين. Ibn Abbas narrates that the Prophet (s) said: Allahe revealed: I am designating 'Ali as the commander of the faithful believers. My curse is upon one who dominates over him and I shall send My scourge upon those who oppose him. O Muhammad, I have appointed him as the leader of all Muslims. If anyone attempts to overstep him, I shall humiliate him. 'Ali is the commander of all testamentary trustees. HADITH 25: عن عبد الله بن أسعد بن زرارة قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: أسرى بي ربي فأوحى إلي في علي بثلاث: إنه إمام المتقين، وسيد المؤمنين، وقائد المحجلين. Abdullah ibn Asad ibn Zurarah narrates that the Prophet (s) said: The Lord lifted me up into the skies and informed me three things about 'Ali, namely that he is the Imam of the pious, the commander of the believers and the foremost of the people with effulgent faces. HADITH 26: قال علي عليه السلام: يا رسول الله! من الفرقة النجية؟ فقال: المتمسكين بما أبت عليه و أصحابك. "Ali ('a) askd, "O Prophet! Which sect would find salvation? The Prophet (S) replied: Those who would adhere to you and your progeny. HADITH 27: قوله تعالى: "فمن أظلم ممن كذب على الله و كذب بالصدق إذ جاءه" عن إبن عباس رضي الله عنه قال: هو من رد قول رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله في علي عليه السلام. "About the verse: "Who is then more unjust than he who utters a lie against Allah and (he who) gives the lie to the truth". Ibn Abbas has quoted his father as saying: The unjust man is one who REJECTS THE HOLY PROPHET'S WORDS ABOUT ALI. HADITH 28: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: إذا كان يوم القيامة، ينادون علي بن أبي طالب بسبعة أسماء: يا صديق، يا دال، يا عابد، يا هادي، يا مهدي، يا فتى، يا علي: مر أنت وشيعتك إلى الجنة بغير حساب. "The Prophet (s): On Judgement day, 'Ali wil be called by seven names and it wil be said to him: 'O truthful, O Proof, O Devoted worshipper, O Guide, O Guided, O Bravest, O 'Ali, you and your SHI'AH wil enter Paradise without being questioned. HADITH 29: قال النبي صلى الله عليه وآله: تكون بين أمتي فرقة واختلاف، فيكون هذا وأصحابه على الحق، يعني علي. "The Prophet (s) said: 'In my Ummah there shall arise conflicts and sectarianism and the one on the Right Path is this man, that is Ali. HADITH 30: عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله أنه قال: لمبارزة علي بن أبي طالب لعمرو بن عبد ود يوم الخندق أفضل من عمل أمتي إلى يوم القيامة. The Prophet (S) said: 'Ali's combat with 'Amr ibn 'Abd-wudd on the day of the Battle of the Dithch is more precious than all the efforts put in by the entire people of my community until Doomsday. HADITH 31: عن حذيفة رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: ضربة علي في يوم الخندق أفضل من أعمال أمتي إلى يوم القيامة. Hudayfah narrates that the Prophet (S) said: A single flash of 'Ali's sword (that killed 'Abd-Wudd) on the day of the Battle of the Dithch outweighs all the deeds of the entire community until Doomsday. HADITH 32: عن ابن عباس: أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله دفع الراية إلى علي عليه السلام يوم بدر وهو ابن عشرين سنة. Ibn Abbas said: The Prophet (S) handed over the Standard to 'Ali ('a) in the battle of Badr. At that time 'Ali (a) was only 20 years old. HADITH 33: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: علي صاحب لواء الحمد. The Prophet (S) said: Ali is the bearer of the Flag of Glory and Praise (of the Lord). HADITH 34: عن جابر الأنضاري قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: حق علي على هذه الأمة كحق الوالد على الولد. Jabir ibn Abdullah al-Ansari said that the Prophet said: 'Ali's rights over this community are like the rights of a father over his children. HADITH 35: بالإسناد، عن ثابت مولى آل أبي ذر، عن أم سلمة قالت: سمعت النبي صلى الله عليه وآله يقول: علي بن أبي طالب مع القرآن، والقرآن معه، لا يفترقان حتى يردا علي الحوض. A retainer of Abu dar's family narrates that Ummu salamah said that she heard the Prophet (S) say: 'Ali is with the Quran and the Quran is with 'Ali. These two shall not separate even as they meet me at the Spring in Paradise. HADITH 36: في حديث عن أبي ذر: أني سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله يقول: علي مع الحق، والحق معه و على لسانه، و الحق يدور حيثما دار علي. Abu dharr says that he heard the Prophet (S) say: 'Ali is always with the Truth and the truth is forever with him and on his lips. Truth follows wherever 'Ali goes. HADITH 37: عن عمار بن ياسر رحمة الله أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله قال لعلي: يا علي! ستقاتلك الفئة الباغية و أنت على الحق، فمن لم ينصرك يو مئذ فليس مني. Ammar ibn Yasir said that he heard the Prophet (S) say: 'O 'Ali, very soon wil you be put to fight with a group of tyrants, but you wil be on the right. On that day whoever forsakes you shall not be reckoned among my people. HADITH 38: عن ابن عباس: عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله قال: علي مع الحق والحق معه، وهو الإمام والخليفة من بعدي. من تمسك به فاز و نجا، ومن تخلف عنه ضل وغوى، يلي غسلي وتكفيني، ويقضي ديني، وأبو سبطي الحسن والحسين. Ibn Abbas narrates that the Prophet (S) said: 'Ali is always with Truth and the Truth is with him always. After me, he is my testamentary trustee and executor. Successful is the one who attaches himself with 'Ali and whoever fails to be in touch with him shall be lost, misled and humiliated. He wil take the responsibility of bathing and clothing my dead body. He wil be the one who wil discharge my debts. He is the father of my two grandsons al-Hasan and al-Husain. HADITH 39: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: الحق مع علي وعلي مع الحق، يدور معه حيث ما دار. The Prophet (S) said: The Truth is with 'Ali and 'Ali is with the truth. Whichever way the Truth turns, it is accompanied by 'Ali. HADITH 40: بالإسناد، قال رسول الله صلى عليه وآله: أعلم أمتي بالسنة والقضاء بعدي علي بن أبي طالب.

HADITH 41: قال سعيد بن المسيب: فلهذا كان علي عليه السلام يقول: سلوني عن طرق السماوات، فإني أعرف بها من طرق الأرضين، ولو كشف الغطاء ما ازددت يقينا. Sa'id ibn Musayyab reports that Amir al-Mu'minin 'Ali ('as) said: Ask me about the routes in the skies, for I know them better than the roads on earth. Even if the veils are raised nothing would be added to my certitude in faith. HADITH 42: عن جابر قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله: علي أكثر أصحاب الرسول علما. Jabir narrtd that the Holy Prophet (s) said: 'Ali is more knowledgeable than any of my companions. HADITH 43: عن سلمان، عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله قال: أعلم أمتي بعدي علي بن أبي طالب. It is reported frm Salman that the Prophet (S) said: After me, the wisest of all the members of my community is 'Ali.

  7. Asalaam Alaikom I’d like to make a quick post regarding the virtue of the seeker of knowledge. A seeker of knowledge is essentially someone that attains knowledge whilst in search of it. I’d like to split the post into two sections. A) What is the need of seeking knowledge? B ) Hadiths regarding the seeker of knowledge I’d like to analyse from a logical perspective the need to seek and attain knowledge. As Muslims, especially living in the west, we are surrounded by many people who may have a negative view on Islam (which is usually out of ignorance) or are unaware of the limitless knowledge and teachings given by Islam. Many situations are encountered on a daily life whereby the solution has been provided by the Quran or recorded in hadith concerning the view of our Prophets (as) and Imams (as). You will be shocked with the amount of people that are enlightened and drawn to Islam by answers you give to certain situations. For instance, if someone comes to you and says “You religious people only worship God out of fear” if you have done your research you will know that the same question has been answered in an eloquent manner by Ameer Al mo’mineen (as) where he replies “there are three types of worshippers, the first is the one who worships out of fear of hell, this is the worship of a slave, then there is the one who worships for the reward of the next life, this is the worship of a business man, then there is the one who worships because he thinks Allah (swt) is worthy of worship, this is the worship of a freeman” If such a reply is given you will find the asker astounded at this answer. When mentioned you attained this through the knowledge of Islam, the persons view on islam if negative, will change to positive. And if unaware will be enlightened by this knowledge. Hadiths regarding the virtue of the seeker of knowledge are many. Just to quote a few. The Prophet (sawa) said “The seeker of knowledge among ignorant people is as the living one among the dead. The Prophet (sawa) said “There are two insatiable types of people who are never satisfied by their quest: the seeker of knowledge and the seeker after this world.” (i personally suggest you ponder over that hadith, its extremely deep) The Prophet (sawa) said “When death comes to the seeker of knowledge whilst he is in that state [of seeking knowledge] he dies a matyr. (look up the rewards of a matyr, it can count as you seeking knowledge) The Prophet (sawa) said “Verily the angels spread their wings over the seeker of knowledge and seek forgiveness for him” The Prophet (sawa) said “He who goes out to seek knowledge, Allah (swt) guarantees his sustenance for him ” (so no saying “oh I have work i can’t do any research”) This one really emphasises the status of the seeker of knowledge Imam Ali (as) said “He who is overtaken by death whilst he is seeking knowledge, there remains but a difference of one level between him and the Prophets” Ways to seek knowledge : the ways to seek knowledge is infinite especially with the internet at hand. Imam Jafar sadiq (as) said “Verily knowledge is a lock and it’s key is questioning” So ASK QUESTIONS, never be afraid that the question is too stupid if your intention is sincere. And if you have a question, ask people, and do independant resarch, then once knowledge has been attained..SPREAD IT. As the Prophet said to the people when they converted and knew the shahadah, he said to them now that you know the shahadah even go and spread that. And just think for every bit of knowledge you spread, and someone learns from you, you get the blessing, then they go and tell people, and you get the blessing and this continues til qiyamah. inshaAllah this article helped you all, May Allah (swt) make the path to knowledge easy so we may attain more. Wa Alaikum Salaam.
