  1. 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 I
  2. Assalam o Alaykum dear members, I am new here. Could someone please guide me which of the following narrations are authentic and which are not. JazakumAllah Khaira ! الکافی، ج ۲، ص ۵۵۲، حدیث: ۶ 6- مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ عِيسَى عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَبِي دَاوُدَ (?)عَنْ أَبِي حَمْزَةَ (?)عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ ع قَالَ: جَاءَ رَجُلٌ إِلَى النَّبِيِّص فَقَالَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ إِنِّي ذُو عِيَالٍ وَ عَلَيَّ دَيْنٌ وَ قَدِ اشْتَدَّتْ حَالِي فَعَلِّمْنِي دُعَاءً أَدْعُو اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ بِهِ لِيَرْزُقَنِي مَا أَقْضِي بِ
  3. Assalamu A'laykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatu, I have been wondering, how did our scholars like Sheikh Al Tusi (ra) know if person x is reliable or not?? And the same thing goes for the Sunni scholars, but I'd rather know how our scholars knew it first. I have been searching and searching, but I haven't found any luck, but that's probably because most of the stuff we have in our text is in Arabic, so its quite hard for a person like me who isn't that great at Arabic to understand what I am reading. Jazakullahu feekum
  4. I remember reading a thread with all the conditions about when to accept a muwathaq hadith from a non-imami. Unfortunately i cannot find it anymore. Can someone please post the link if they find it or if you know the conditions, please post them.
  5. Salam brothers. The hadith we bring up in sunni books- "ali, you are the wali of every believer after me" is a strong proof to use to show that 'wali' does not mean friend and it has to mean leader because of the usage if 'after me'. However, after looking at the debate on this hadith, i have found that there are 3 chains. 2 of them contain shiees so they reject them but one of them contains no shia, the narration of abu balji. Although, I have seen some try and weaken this hadith because they say abu balj made a mistake and instead of narrating to amr bin maymoon, he meant to say mayoom abu a
  6. اكتب وبث علمك في إخوانك، فإن مت فأورث كتبك بنيك Write down and spread your knowledge among your brothers. And if you are about to die then will your books to your children [What the Imam al-Sadiq is supposed to have said to al-Mufadhal] فلما انصرفت إلى الكوفة أقبلت علي الشيعة فمزقوني كل ممزق، يأكلون لحمي ويشتمون عرضي، حتى أن بعضهم استقبلني فوثب في وجهي، وبعضهم قعد لي في سكك الكوفة يريد ضربي، ورموني بكل بهتان When I reached Kufa and met the Shia, they tore me to shreds, eating my flesh and disparaging my honour, such that one of them faced me and punched me in the face, an
  7. I am new to shiachat and wanted to start this topic. Unfortunately, the rijal books we have are not in english and many of us do cannot access to valuable information about rijal. The aim of this topic is to provide brothers/sisters with a place where if we have doubt about a hadith or a narrator, we can bring the chain and knowledgeable brother of sisters can inform us of the authenticity of the narration or narrator. It would be better if brothers or sisters would also provide the sources in which they got the information. this site has many narrators and their authenticity - http://cor
  8. (bismillah) Abu Jafar Muhammad b. Sinan al-Zuhri is one of the most disputed narrators in Shi’i Rijal where many people say “he’s clearly weak” or “he’s clearly reliabile” or they just give up and take no opinion – treating him majhool. And I think it is rather silly to say that he, nor any companion or narrator, was just always 100% and we can see that there ups and downs for even some of our biggest companions like Yunus b. Abd al-Rahman and Zurara b. A`yun [ra], but they still come out on top. So I’m going put forward here most of the information regarding his weakening and authentication,
  9. This is a translation of the first chapter (more chapters to hopefully follow) of Durus al-Tamhidiyya Fi Qawaid al-Rijaliyya, which is an introductory primer on Ilm al-Rijal, authored by Shaykh Baqir al-Irwani, who was a foremost student of Sayyid al-Sistani, and who currently teaches Dars al-Kharij in the Hawza at Najaf. More advanced students of Ilm al-Rijal will realize that it generally falls within the bounds of the school of Sayyid al-Khoei [and the Modern Usulists] in accepting as default the foundations of Hiss [as a requirement for the bindingness of the rulings of Tawthiq and Tadh'i
  10. 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 w
  11. Can someone provide the status of these hadiths and their arabic texts? They are found in Usul Kafi, in the book of leadership with divine authority. I was just wondering how authentic they were and whether translated correctly. The first hadith I included here I was wondering about because it seems the Prophet (sawas) is giving advice to an anonymous ruler after him, without specifying who his wasi is? H , Ch. 104, h 3 A number of our people has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ‘Abd al-Rahman ibn Hammad and others from Hanan ibn Sadir al-Sayrafi who has said the following. "I heard ab
  12. 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
  13. (bismillah) This is a section from Āyatullāh al-Shaykh Muhammad al-Sanad حفظه الله’s second volume in his rijāl series (pages 105 - 111) where he criticizes and refutes the methods of the Sunni Rijāl Scholars - exploiting their Nasb and utterly unacademic method of filtration. I pray the people find this discussion beneficial, inshā’Allah. I translated this myself, I put the arabic in on places I was little more unsure. Some parts of more word for word, others are less. It is extremely important to look into and investigate the Jarh and Ta`dīl of the different schools of the Sunnis where t
  14. This is taken from Shaykh al-Subhani's - Mawsua Tabaqat al-Fuqaha: http://imamsadeq.com/ar/index/book?bookID=136&page=4#55 Burayda b. al-Husayb [d. 62/63][1] Ibn Abdallah b. al-Harith al-Aslami, about his Kuniyya there are different opinions: some said Abu Abdallah, Abu Sasan, Abu Sahl and Abu al-Husayb. It is said that he converted in the year of the Hijra – when the prophet passed by him – whilst making the Hijra - near Ghamiym, then he came to the messenger of Allah after Uhud, so he witnessed with him the battle of Khaybar and the conquest of Mecca, and with him was the banner (t
  15. (bismillah) One the various compilation that our Qudamaa’ [ra] put to gether, one of the most interesting ones, to me, is Qurb al-Isnad by `Abdullah b. Jafar al-Himyari [ra]. A famous thiqa scholar who’s trustworthiness and knowledge is undoubted. His book is narrated from by the 3 Muhammads [as] in their large compilations. However, upon the majority, the book form that has reached us is not reliable in its tareeq or it’s contents Majalisi included in Bihar. However, the tareeq of Sh. Hurr al-Amili to the book is reliable and he has included many narrations from the book in Wasaa’il al-Shi`ah
  16. Studying Shaykh Muhammad Sanad's views on Ilm al-Rijal in his Vol. 1 of the series - Mabani Fi Ilm al-Rijal - is interesting, the Shaykh leads a new and novel camp in Rijal studies that is opposed to the traditionalist camp of Sayyid al-Khoei by raising the flag of so-called 'Qarainism'. The main difference is that Shaykh Sanad allows for Ijtihad in Rijal in modern times, although there are many other differences that stem from this cardinal divergence. This thread is there to translate some of his views due to the importance that they have been attracting in the current times from different
  17. The First Discussion These are the rules which are required to be understood and followed by the one who wants to investigate the condition of the narrators, so that if even one of them is ignored, the truth will not be reached to, and these rules with their description are given below: 1. The Wathaqa of the one giving the Tawthiq or Tadhif This rule is inferred by the the necessity of not depending (following) the words of a Kadhab or a Majhul person in the Ta’dil or Tadhif of somebody else. And it is because of this rule that we do not accept the Tawthiqat and Tadhifat of a number of sc
  18. 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 re
  19. SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – The year 260 AH was the start of the occultation of Imam Mahdi (AJ) and a new chapter of relation between Imam (as) and Shia Muslims. At the time of minor occultation 4 special deputies were designated to facilitate contacts between Shia Muslims of the world and Imam Mahdi (AJ). The third of these deputies known as Hossain ibn Rouh Nobakhti was chosen by Imam (as) himself. About the year 305 AH in the month of Jamadul Oula and after the passing away of the second deputy, Mohammad bin Othman, Hossain ibn Rouh Nobakhti started his deputyship
  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 reliabl
  21. Salam Alaikum. I'm aware that saduq never mentions the isnads for the hadiths in one of his books for brevity. But doesn't this pose a problem? How can we verify every narrator saduq relied upon was trustworthy or even existed? Is there no way to find the isnads in another compilation of his?
  22. This is an interesting article I found. I thought you e-rijalists might be interested :P http://www.islamquest.net/en/archive/question/en21823# Ali bin Ibrahim bin Hashim Qummi is one of the great Shiite scholars. As per Najashi's and Sheikh Tusi's reports, he has a book titled "Tafsir Qummi". The book is available to all for the time being and some of its narrations are mentioned in some reliable books like Al-Kafi. As for the authenticity of the content of this book, there is a doubt as to whether or not all the contents can be ascribed to Ali bin Ibrahim. In addition, assuming that thi
  23. (bismillah) صلى الله على محمد وآله Recently, I came across a fascinating article regarding the hypocrites at Uqba that attempted to kill the Holy Prophet [sawa] after Tabuk. The full article can be read here (click!). I will here, however, provide a summarized version of its points with some extra points here. The great companion Huthayfa b. al-Yaman (d. 37 AH), who accompanied the Prophet [sawa] when he was attacked by these people at Uqba, was informed by the Prophet [sawa] of who these hypocrites were and then announced to everyone else that there were a number (12 ~ 14) hypocrites amon
  24. (salam) I want to check the authenticity of some hadiths. I want to read some books on Ilm e Rijal al Hadith. There are books like those of Ibn Hajar, al Suyuti, al Dhahabi, Ali ibn Athir, Ibn Sa'd, Ibn Asakar etc. Can you show me where to read some of these books online. Is there a website that has published the whole book in Urdu, Arabic or English online for free. Thanks!
  25. I have previously alluded to the existence of different view points among the Fuqaha in regards the level of use of Ilm al-Rijal in the Istinbat (derivation of Ahkam from the Adilla) process, the view point that has found itself in the forefront in recent years - thanks to the efforts of Sayyid al-Khoei has been the so-called 'Isnad-first Analysis', whereby, any Hadith whose Isnad does not meet Dirayah standards is cast off. Seeking to demonstrate alternative views, this is a short essay that attempts to describe Sayyid al-Burujerdi's Manhaj in Istinbat, and the role he gives to Ilm al-Rijal w
