  1. Assalam o Alaikum all shia brothers and sisters, As you all know that the fundamental hadith collection of shia Islam on both Usul and Furu include Al-Kafi of Kulayni, Al-Faqih of Sadooq, Tahzib ul Ahkam and Al-Istibsar of Toosi, collectively called as Kutub e Arba (Four Books). But why these four basic books are not available in English (universal language), in searchable form, so that anyone can find and read narrations of Ahlebait easily, as Ahlul Sunnah have done (see alone sunnah.com, it include all major hadith books in searchable form for everyone, nothing is hidden). Famous and biggest shia website Al-islam.org have translated so many books in English, but not those four fundamental books. Primary & original source books are not available for everyone while secondary & duplicate soucre books are there. This is realy an astonishing fact. If any of the following basic shia hadith books are already available in English plz share dwonload/online links. I will be very thankful to you. 1. Al-Kafi 2. Al-Faqih 3. Tehzib ul Ahkam 4. Al-Istibsar also these books. 5. Uyun Akhbar Al-Reza (a.s) of Sadooq 6. Firaq ul Shia of Naubakhti 7. Hayat ul Qulub of Majlisi 8. Ma'ani Akhbar of Sadooq 9. Sahih Al-Kafi of Baqir Bahbudi 10. Illal Sharai of Sadooq Jazak Allah Khairan
  2. Salaam everyone, The Thaqalayn Discord server and I have been working on a Hadith browsing site, which is ready here: http://thaqalayn.co/index.php/ahadith So far it's only Al Kafi, using the Hube Ali translation, but inshallah in the future we will be adding more books. Would be great if you guys could check it out. Thank you, 7ssein
  3. Salam un Alaykum, Often times we see traditions in books like Al Kafi, Tabari, Bihar Al Anwar, and Tafsirs such as Suyuti, Tabari, Qummi, etc.(You get the point) but point is sometimes these Hadiths turn out to be unauthentic, and the authors usually state at the start of their books, that they don't vouch for the authenticity of these traditions (Bukhari and Muslim are exceptions), so it leaves me to wonder why didn't the compilers just leave out those unauthentic traditions, because lay people like me don't really know Ilm Ul Rijal so it would hard for people like me to gain Authentic Ilm from those books, also these unauthentic traditions are a basis for propoganda against both sects for laymen people who don't really know much about Hadiths sciences at all, and can serve as the basis for hate, anyways enough of me I would like to and invite all brothers and sisters to bring forth your opinions and thoughts
  4. Happy Eid everyone!!! I'm happy to announce on this joyous occasion that I've just launched a website that contains and displays the Hadith from the Ahlulbayt(عليه السلام). The link is: https://ahlulbayt-hadith.com/. Reason for making this website: So far I've been using https://www.al-islam.org/ and their website is great. However, it can be hard to only search for ahadith as there are many other content that gets parsed in their website. For this purpose, I thought that it might be useful to have a website dedicated solely to the hadith of the Ahlulbayth (عليه السلام). Additionally, the sunni hadith books have such websites so I thought that we should also make our hadith books available online. Current features: Over 3000 hadiths from Usul Al-Kafi with complete chains and references. The ability to search by keywords through the hadiths. Navigate from one hadith to the next. Features that I plan to add soon: Bihar Al-Anwar and other classic Shia hadith books Arabic ahadith Complete hadith book viewer in the browser Screenshot: Please check this website out and let me know if you have any suggestions for improvement or any comments!
  5. Allah says in Quran: {Certainly did Allah confer [great] favor upon the believers when He sent among them a Messenger from themselves, reciting to them His verses and purifying them and teaching them the Book and wisdom, although they had been before in manifest error.} [3:164] {Just as We have sent among you a messenger from yourselves reciting to you Our verses and purifying you and teaching you the Book and wisdom and teaching you that which you did not know.} [2:151] {And those who believe and do righteous deeds and believe in what has been sent down upon Muhammad – and it is the truth from their Lord – He will remove from them their misdeeds and amend their condition.} [47:2] Therefore a Muslim must follow everything the Prophet (saw) says, everything he does, and everything he accepts and allows from the actions of those believers surrounding him. The Prophet whom Allah chose is the source of all knowledge, so from where should someone take his orders, his instructions and explanations? From the books of Ahlul-Sunnah? Or the books of the Ahle Tashayyu? 1- SAHIH AL-BUKHARI: Orders, sayings and instructions taken from the source of knowledge Muhammad (saw). -Bukhari has 7,593 narrations in his book with repetitions, plus 1,341 Mu`allaqat. -It is rare to find a non-prophetic narration in al-Bukhari, the vast majority of its narrations are prophetic sayings or orders or actions or description of his (saw) physical look or his interpretation of Qur’anic verses or decisions in military or economic matters or descriptions of his society and the location in which he lived (saw). A quick browse in the book by anyone easily shows that it is hard to find non-prophetic narrations in it. -After its chains of transmission have been analysed and scrutinized, the scholars of Ahlul-Sunnah have a consensus that the narrations in this book are all reliable and authentic except for maybe five or seven reports in which there is disagreement. 2- KAFI AL-KULAYNI: Orders, sayings and instructions taken from the source of knowledge Muhammad (saw). A quick browse through al-Kafi unveils that there is barely any mention of the Prophet (saw) in the book. The vast majority of its contents appear to be opinions and sayings of 5th and 6th Shia Imam. Everyone know that Allah ordered us in the Qur’an to follow the guidance and commands of the Prophet Muhammad (saw), there was no mention of any guidance that needs to be taken from other than Prophet. Prophetic narrations are those who explicitly state: The Prophet (saw) said this, or the Prophet (saw) did that etc. Moreover, Renowned Shia scholar of Hadith, Ayatullah al-`Allamah `Abdullah al-Mamaqani al-Najafi says in his book of Hadith sciences “Miqbas-ul-Hidaya” vol.1 pg.198: إن ثاني الشهيدين بعد نقله عن الأكثر عدم العمل بالحسن و الموثق لاشتراطهم في قبول الخبر: الإيمان, و العدالة, كما قطع به جماعة قال: و العجيب أن الشيخ (الطوسي) اشترط ذلك أيضا في كتبه الأصولية, و وقع له في الحديث و كتب الفروع الغرائب, فتارة يعمل بالخبر الضعيف مطلقا حتى أنه يخصص به أخبار كثيرة صحيحة حيث تعارضه باطلاقها, و تارة يصرح برد الحديث لضعفه, و أخرى يرد الصحيح معللا بأنه خبر واحد لا يوجب علما و لا عملا In summary he says that al-Shaheed al-Thani (Zayn-ul-Deen bin `Ali al-`Amili) narrated the opinion of the vast majority of the Shia scholars that one cannot use or work with the Hasan or Muwathaq narrations since the Shia placed two conditions to accept a narration: 1-Iman (Faith of the narrator). 2-`Adalah (Reliability of his narrations). In short, what the author is saying is that the Hasan Hadith has gathered the condition of Iman but lost that of `Adalah, while the Muwathaq has gathered the condition of `Adalah but lost that of Iman, and I add that the Hasan is superior to the Muwathaq in Shia Hadith since they care more about the religion of the man than his reliability as narrator. Summary of Prophetic narrations in Kafi: Total number of narrations in al-Kafi is taken from al-Shaheed al-Awwal as written in al-Ijtihad wal-Taqleed by al-Khu’i and is 16,199 narrations. As per authentication of al-Majlisi in “Mir’at al-`Uqoul” following are results.-TOTAL SAHIH: 285. / Percentage out of total in al-Kafi = 1.75%-TOTAL HASAN: 358. / Percentage out of total in al-Kafi = 2.21%-TOTAL MUWATHAQ: 128. / Percentage out of total in al-Kafi = 0.79%-TOTAL WEAK: 1,624. / Percentage out of total in al-Kafi = 10%-TOTAL UNGRADED: 13. / Percentage out of total in al-Kafi = 0.08%> TOTAL NUMBER OF PROPHETIC NARRATIONS: 2,408 out of 16,199 / Percentage out of total in al-Kafi = 14.86% with repetition. FURTHERMORE: -All “Sahih” narrations listed above are not connected to the messenger (saw), the chain usually stops at Ja`far al-Sadiq who was born 70 years after the death of the source of knowledge Muhammad (saw). -Only about one or two narrations in this entire book are actually connected to Prophet Muhammad (saw) such as the one from Jabir bin `Abdullah in volume 5, page 325, chapter “Worst of women.” -Almost every narration listed as “Hasan” above, comes through the path of one narrator and he is Ibrahim bin Hashim al-Qummi, whose reliability was not documented but is assumed to be “honest”. FINAL WORDS: The unbiased researcher who follows Allah’s instructions will naturally lean towards the book with the biggest number of authentic and connected prophetic narrations as the Qur’an has planted in our hearts the love of Muhammad (saw) and our eagerness to learn more about his noble life will drive us towards the best religious source. Original Source with more details. THOUGHTS?
  6. Assalamu alaikum, I have saved up some money to buy some islamic books with and right now I can't choose between buying the first volume of al-Kafi in english or the shi'a hadith collection "The scale of wisdom", so I'm wondering if anybody has any of these books and can suggest one of them for me and the reasons why I should buy that one and not the other. Al-Kafi vol.1 costs about 13 pounds + shipping and The scale of wisdom 26 pounds + shipping (but it has over a 1000 pages). I don't have any other hadith collections so maybe the scale of wisdom would be a better choice?
