The Gate of knowledge - Quiz


Recommended Posts

(salam)

Since its ramdhan I thought it would be a good idea to run a quiz or question/answer activity here with sc ppl were everyone can learn something through a fun and easy activity throughout this holy month.

So this is how it will work. I will ask a question and who ever gives the right answer (no cheating) can ask the next question and whoever asnwers correct will ask the 3rd question and so on. Hope its clear.....but if u guys have a better idea...share it!

So here we go with the first question.

QUESTION: Name the Author of Bahar alanwaar.

Yes you are correct! Here is what Al-Kashee says regarding the aSHaab Al-Ijmaa` of Imaam Al-Baaqir (as) and Imaam Al-Saadiq (as).

قال الكشي: اجتمعت العصابة على تصديق هؤلاء الأولين من أصحاب أبي جعفر (ع) و أبي عبد الله (ع) و انقادوا لهم بالفقه فقالوا أفقه الأولين ستة: زرارة و معروف بن خربوذ و بريد و أبو بصير الأسدي و الفضيل بن يسار و محمد بن مسلم الطائفي قالوا و أفقه الستة زرارة و قال بعضهم مكان أبي بصير الأسدي أبو بصير المرادي و هو ليث بن البختري.

"Al-Kashee says: There is an ijmaa` concerning the authenticity of these foremost companions of Imaam Al-Baaqir (as) and Imaam Al-Saadiq (as)…..Zuraarah, Ma`roof bin Kharboodh, Burayd (bin Mu`aawiyah), Aboo BaSeer Al-Asadee, Al-FuDayl bin Yasaar, and Muhammad bin Muslim. The best understanding (of) the six is Zuraarah. And Some say it is Aboo BaSeer Al-Asadee. Aboo BaSeer Al-Muraadee is (actually) Layth bn Al-Bakhtaree."

I just think it is weird how Khu'ee in his rijaal has Burayd bin Mu'aawiyah and Ma'roof bin Kharraboodh as thiqah only because they are in Tafseer al Qummee. Most people would grade that as majhool. But they are part of the six greatest companions of Imaam Saadiq (as).

What is your opinion on the matter? Why do you think Khu'ee didn't just grade them straight "thiqah" as he did with the other four, when the evidence is clear from older scholars attesting to their veracity?

There are five Quranic suraah that contain a complusory sajda verse. Name three of these suwar.

There are only 4 waajib sajdahs not 5. They are Surah Sajdah (32) , Surah FuSSilat (Ha Meem) (41) , Surah Najm (53) , Surah `Alaq (96).

Obligatory Sajdahs in the Holy Qur'an

Surah as-Sajdah, 32:15

Surah Ha Mim Sajdah, 41:38

Surah an-Najm, 53:62

Not at all. Al-MufaDDal bin `Umar has been weakened by our classical scholars, new age scholars try to strengthen him. But he has been considered da`eef jiddan (very weak) by a lot of our classical scholars.

Al-MufaDDal bin 'Umar (ÇáúãõÝóÖóøáö Èúäö ÚõãóÑó) is Da'eef Jiddan (Very Weak) according to:

1. Ibn Al-GhaDaa-iree, Kitaab Al-Dua'faa, pg. 88

2. Al-Najaashee, Rijaal, pg. 416

3. Al-Hillee, Al-KhulaaSah, pg. 258

Mufaddal (ra), he was a very close and respected companion of Imam Assadeq (as). Imam Sadiq (as) said about him in saheh narration O' Mufadal I love and I love whoever loves. O' Mufadal If all of our shia were similar to you, they will never dispute.

Based on this authentic narration the reader will logically assume that Mufadal is a great and trustworthy companion, but then he is shocked to read in the rijal books that some scholars weakened Mufadal. Even great rijal scholars.

the problem is, rijal scholars base their opinions on other narration which they believe are authentic for example

If a scholar wanted to check if someone is reliable, they look at his narration. Now lets say that narrator was among those who were taught special knowledge by our Imams (as), and this knowledge can only be comprehended by some shia, and to other shias this knowledge is non-sence. What will happen to the narrator?

The narrator will be accused of ghluuu and lying just because scholars were unable to comprehend his narrations.

One famous example is Jaber Ibn Yazeed Al-Jufi (ra), Jaber was taught special knowledge that no one had known by our Imams (as). Imam Sadiq (as) had said in saheh narration that jaber is a truthful narrator and may Allah have mercy on him. However, many people had accused jaber of narrating crazy narrations because they were unable to comprehend his narrations, and he was therefore weakened.

Do the above scholars give reasons for weakening him?

What does Ayatollah Khoi say about him?

Let's say a person does wudu for their salat al-zhuhr. They pray. Some time passes and they have no hadath (i.e. nothing to break their wudu). They then renew their wudu for salat al-`asr and pray. Later, they remember that in one of their wudus, they forget to wash their right arm, however, they don't remember which wudu it was. What are if anything are they to do in regards to the two salat, and why?

Is this part of the quiz questions? or off topic?

Pray Zhuhr again? Asr would be fine, as atleast one of the two wudhoo is valid. Haha, just a guess, its probably much more complicated than that...

^ ^ thanx for clarifying. ok so now to ur question

Well, Ive heard that any mistake that happens with ur any of ur prayer, and U remembered it AFTER u are done prayer, is not counted as wrong and therefore you are not required to repeat ur prayer. However if you realize or become aware of somethign wrong with ur prayer WHILE ur in the process of praying then there are a set of rules that u'd need to follow.

So based on this, I dont think that in the above situation u'd need to do anything and ur prayer is vaild becase u remembered after ur were done with both of ur prayer.

Notnsure if im correct tho, but a very good question, thanx for asking.

I actually had a look in my resala...but this situation's too complicated.

But if one does have doubts, after his prayers, whether he performed wudhu or not; they are still valid. I'm assuming this applies here aswell..?

In what 5 cases is wudhu mandatory?

Bro Macisaac,

He needs to pray Zuhr only. Because remember that he re-validate his wudu for Salat al- Asar.

Let me elaborate. Only one of his wudu is void. Since he is confident that didn't break his wudu for Zuhr then even if he made mistake for wudu in Salat al-Asr, it wouldn't be a problem because his wudu (from Zuhr) is still in order.

If his wudu for Zuhr was void, he need to pray again. There is no way out.

Correct. You know that at least one of the wudus was correct, which would mean the `asr at least had a wudu. The zhuhr though you don't know, so you repeat that one. Ok, your turn I guess.
