  1. As-Salamu-Alaykum. I recently watched a video where some of my Sunni brothers criticised the Shia hadith tradition, and so I've come on here to ask a few questions. I am very fascinated by the topic of hadith, and particularly the Shia tradition. As I understand it, you do not view your Kutab al-Arba'ah the same way we view our Kutub al-Sittah (or more specifically Bukhari/Muslim as the four Sunnans can have quite a few weak hadith). I understand you perhaps view Kitab al-Kafi similarly to how we view the Sunan al-Kubra of Imam an-Nasa'i Rahimullah (not his Sunan al-Saghir which is included in Kutub al-Sittah) i.e. it has many authentic reports but may have quite a few weak reports too (and both books are a similar size etc.) Perhaps an even better comparison is Sunan al-Kubra of Imam Bayhaqi Rahimullah - which is around the same time period. Anyway, my question relates to verification of hadith and the exact method. As I am an English speaker, who doesn't know much arabic, I can't really go and open up your books of Rijal/Biographies etc. So I want to ask on here instead. Could someone demonstrate to me how a Shia Muhadith would go about verifying a Hadith? As in can you bring a Hadith from Kitab al-Kafi (let's say the first one), and walk me through the methodology use with regards to authenticating the chain etc. Also could someone tell me if it is true that Shia give more weight to the Matn than the Isnad? Are Nawasib reported (as in the Khawarij) rejected or are they allowed to report? If a Hadith goes against your theology, would you be able to reject it based on just the content of the Matn? Also how do you evaluate reporters of hadith - what makes them thiqah? I think the more detail you go into the better it will be. Please do not link videos - unless the content in them in 100% Sunni-friendly (no Sahabah cursing etc.). Thanks in advance!
  2. There has not appeared via authentic isnads, hadiths testifying to the virtues of any Companion like what has appeared testifying to the virtues of Ali b. Abi Talib. ~ Ahmad ibn Hanbal Sunni source; Ibn Abi Ya’la, Tabaqat al-hanabila, vol. 2, page 156. As narrated to us by Jabir ibn Abdullah, the Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) said; Ali b. Abi Talib is the earliest to embrace Islam in my community, the most knowledgeable of them, the most correct in his religion, the most virtuous in his certainty, the most prudent, generous and brave of heart, and he is the imam and caliph after me. Shia source; Shaykh al-Saduq, Amali al-saduq, p. 7. The same hadith can be found in many Sunni collections, even early ones such as the Musannaf of al-Sanani and the Musnad of ibn-Hanbal. However, with absence of the last section referring to Imam Ali (عليه السلام) as a Caliph and Imam. Other hadiths such as Ghadir Khumm, ruled by al-Tirmidhi and al-Hakim al-Naysaburi to be sahih (authentic), and the hadith of two weighty things (Quran and Ahlul Bayt) ruled by al-Hakim, Ibn Khuzayma, Muslim b. al-Hajjaj to be sahih (authentic). Among some, al-Naysaburi declared the hadith narrated from the Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) “O Fatima, Allah is angered when you are angered, Allah is pleased when you are pleased”, to be sahih (authentic). Many times Shia narrations were openly stolen and incorporated into the Sunni books by giving them different authorship. For example, Shaykh al-Saduq quoted (Amali, p. 6) Imam Muhammad al-Baqir (عليه السلام) that the Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) had said that the best of Allah’s (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) slaves are those “Who, when they seek perfection in their acts, hope for good tidings, seek forgiven when they do wrong, are thankful to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) when they give, persevere when they are tired, and forgive when they are angered.” The same hadith can be found in Hilyat al-awliya (volume 6, page 120) by Abu Nuy’am but through a very Sunni isnad. Shaykh al-Saduq died before Abu Nuy’am. Overall, at least 100 Shia narrators found themselves in the major Sunni “authentic” books. In rijal alshi'ah fii asaneed alsunnah we can find the names of 140 of them. al-Muraja’at lists 100 of them. For example, narrations from Adi ibn Thabit al-Kufi can be found in Sunan ibn Majah and other books. Ibn Ma`in has described him as a "Shi`a extremist," while Dar Qutni calls him "Rafidi, extremist, but also reliable." Al-Mas`udi says, "We have never seen anyone who is so outspoken in preaching his Shi`a views like `Adi ibn Thabit."

  4. Why twelver shias consider ‘Praying is better than sleep’ (al-salaatu khayrun min al-nawm) a biddah? وما رواه هو أيضا عن أحمد بن الحسن عن الحسين عن فضالة عن العلا عن محمد بن مسلم عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام قال: كان أبي ينادي في بيته بالصلاة خير من النوم” Imam Abu Jaafar (Al-Baqir) said: ‘My father (Ali Ibn Al-Hussein, Al-Sajjad/Zayn Al-Abideen) used to call out from his house in prayer: ”Praying is better than sleep’ (al-salaatu khayrun min al-nawm)’. [Tahdhib vol.7, p.63 no. 15, Wasa’el Al-Shia v.22 S.651, Number 4. Hadith grading: Muwathaq/authentic] Note: Narration say from his house, so it can not be considered as taqqiyah, common shia excuse. فأما ما رواه محمد بن علي بن محبوب عن أحمد بن الحسن عن الحسين عن حماد بن عيسى عن شعيب بن يعقوب عن أبي بصير عن أبي عبدالله عليه السلام قال: النداء والتثويب في الاقامة من السنة” Imam Abu Abdallah (Al-Sadiq) said: ‘The calling and the Tathweeb in Iqamah is from the Sunnah.’ [Wasa’el Al-Shia vol.22, p.65 no.3 and in Tahtheeb Al-Ahkaam] Tathweeb stands for ‘al-salaatu khayrun min al-nawm'. Scholar Al-Hilli says Tathweeb is biddah Link. Which is contradiction to narrations above. والتثويب مكروه وهو قول: ” الصلاة خير من النوم ” ‘Al-Tathweeb is disliked (Makrooh) and it’s the saying: “as-salaatu khayrun min al-nawn”.’
  5. Hi I am a born shia, and have decided to take a more active role in inter-sectarian dialogue amongst my sunni friends at university. however to do so i'm trying to encourage the similarities between sunni-shia in day to day islamic practice, in order to alleviate government manufactured sectarianism (Allah help the people of iraq and syria). so my question is, which hadith do we consider reliable enough for us to use? despite quoting imam ali (as) a lot of my friends tend to frown upon the mention of his name.
  6. (salam) How authentic and sound are the narrations of our hadith compared to the 6 books of Sunnism (Bukhari muslim)? Our Sunni brethren argue that the hadith books that we refer to are a bunch of fabricated myths and stories. They say that the narrations are not very sound and that none of them root back to the prophet through a solid continuous chain of narrators. Do their scholars actually spend years to study our hadith like our scholars do in Hawza? I doubt that they do but how can this claim be refuted? I find this issue with hadith very hard to refute because I have limited knowledge on the basics of the science of Hadith (ilm al hadith) and the science of narrators(ilm al rejal). What do you guys think?
  7. who is your favorite prophet in the Quran (other than of course Muhammad may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him)? Then tell me why and how you take this prophet as an example among the many examples Allah gives us in the Quran
  8. Salaam aleikum I would like to know if the prophet (pbuh) actually announced all of his 12 successors by names? If he did, can I please have a shia authentic hadith mentioning this. The only hadith i can find which does this is from Yanabi Al muwaddah, but it appears to be very weak. Salaam Ali
