(bismillah)

حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد، قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحسين الصفار، عن العباس بن معروف، عن صفوان بن يحيى، عمن حدثه

Last guy is just "someone" that was mentioned, so majhool - some would still consider it a qawwi chain. I don't find the content strange or problematic. Accepting the narration is okay, I believe.

You don't find the following strange?

I (narrator) asked what is meant by "Allah".

Imam (as) said: 'Alif' stands for the Blessing (Nemat) of our Wilayat on Gods creations. 'Laam' stands for the obligation of our Wilayat on Gods creations. And 'Hey' stands for disgrace for those who oppose Muhammad (saww) and the progeny of Muhammad (as).”

You don't find the following strange?

It's in the context of the bismillah. I'm not going to say this is the meaning. As the ayaat and kalimaat of the Qur'an have many meanings - especially if you consider the batini ones, and these deep layered meanings don't contradict. Interpret it in a non-ghuluw way, Saduq narrates it, chain isn't completely horrid. Accepting it or doing tawaqquf either way don't make a difference practically speaking. It's a possibility they [as] said this, so leave it open.

Salam.

Would really appreciate if new threads could be started for discussions.

I have started this specific topic for posting updates from my collection.

Quran - 34:28

وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا كَافَّةً لِّلنَّاسِ بَشِيرًا وَنَذِيرًا وَلَٰكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ

"We have not sent thee but as a universal (Messenger) to men, giving them glad tidings, and warning them (against sin), but most men understand not." [34:28]

(Quoting only a part of a lengthy narration)

قلت : جُعلتُ فِداك فهل يرى الإمام ما بين المشرق والمغرب ؟ فقال : يا ابن بُكَير فكيف يكون حُجّة الله على ما بين قطريها وهو لا يَراهم ولا يحكم فيهم ؟ ! وكيف يكون حجّةً على قوم غيّب لا يقدر عليهم ولا يقدرون عليه ؟ وكيف يكون مؤدّياً عن الله وشاهداً على الخلق وهو لا يراهم؟ وكيف يكون حجّةً عليهم وهو محجوب عنهم؟ وقد جعل بينهم وبينه أن يقوم بأمر رَبّه فيهم ، والله يقول : «وَما أرْسَلْناكَ إلاّ كافَّةً لِلنّاسِ» يعني به مَن على الأرض والحجَّة مِن بعد النَّبيِّ صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم يقوم مقام النَّبيِّ مِن بعده وهو الدَّليل على ما تشاجَرَتْ فيه الاُمّة ، والأخذ بحقوق النّاس ، والقيام بأمر الله ، والمنصف لبعضهم مِن بعضٍ

I (narrator) asked, "May I sacrifise myself for you. Can the Imam (as) see everything from the East to the West?"

Imam Sadiq (as) said, "O Son of Bukayr, How can he be the decisive Proof of Allah (swt) over the entire earth without seeing and ruling over everyone? And how can he be the Decisive Proof over people who are not in his presence, who cannot reach him and over whom he has no power?How can he convey the message of Allah and act as Allah's witness over the creation if he cannot see them? How can he be the Decisive Proof on the people if he is hidden from them? while he has been appointed as the medium between the slaves and Allah (swt) so that he carries out the orders of his Lord to them?

And Allah (swt) says, "We have not sent you but to all manking" [34:28]. This verse refers to everything on earth. The Decisive Proof after the Messenger of Allah (swt) fills the post of the Messenger of Allah (swt) after him. He is the judge in that which the nation disagrees about, the one who gives the people their rights, the one who carries out the orders of Allah, and He is the one who justly rules between the people.

Chapter: 2, Verse: 143 - Imam's (as) witness over the people

وَكَذَٰلِكَ جَعَلْنَاكُمْ أُمَّةً وَسَطًا لِّتَكُونُوا شُهَدَاءَ عَلَى النَّاسِ وَيَكُونَ الرَّسُولُ عَلَيْكُمْ شَهِيدًا

"Thus, have We made of you an Ummat justly balanced, that ye might be witnesses over the nations, and the Messenger a witness over yourselves." [2:143]

علي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه، عن محمد بن أبي عمير، عن ابن اذينة، عن بريد العجلي قال: قلت لابي جعفر)عليه السلام (قول الله تبارك وتعالى: " وكذلك جعلناكم امة وسطا لتكونوا شهداء على الناس ويكون الرسول عليكم شهيدا " قال: نحن الامة الوسط ونحن شهداء الله تبارك وتعالى على خلقه، وحججه في أرضه، قلت: قوله تعالى: " يا أيها الذين آمنوا اركعوا واسجدوا واعبدوا ربكم وافعلوا الخير لعلكم تفلحون * وجاهدوا في الله حق جهاده هو اجتباكم " قال: إيانا عنى ونحن المجتبون، ولم يجعل الله تبارك وتعالى في الدين " من حرج " فالحرج أشد من الضيق " ملة أبيكم إبراهيم " إيانا عنى خاصة و " سماكم المسلمين " الله سمانا المسلمين " من قبل " في الكتب التي مضت " وفي هذا " القرآن " ليكون الرسول عليكم شهيدا وتكونوا شهداء على الناس " فرسول الله) صلى الله عليه وآله( الشهيد علينا بما بلغنا عن الله تبارك وتعالى، ونحن الشهداء على الناس، فمن صدق يوم القيامة صدقناه ومن كذب كذبناه

Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from Muhammad ibn abu ‘Umayr from ibn ’Udhayna from Burayd al-‘Ijli who has said the following.

"I asked (Imam) abu Ja'far (as) about the meaning of the words of Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High,

‘We have made you (true Muslims) a moderate nation so that you would be (witness) an example for all people and the Prophet (a witness) an example for you . . .." [2:143]

The Imam (as) said, "We are the moderate nation and we are the witness for Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High, over the activities of His creatures and possess His authority on earth."

I then asked about the meaning of the following verse of the Holy Quran that says,

"Believers, worship your Lord, bow down and prostrate yourselves before Him and do virtuous deeds so that perhaps you will have everlasting happiness. Strive steadfastly for the cause of Allah. He has chosen you. ." [22:77-78]

The Imam (as) said, "It refers to us and we are the chosen ones. Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High, has not sanctioned anything in religion that would be a constraint up on the people. Al-Haraj (hardships) is more serious than al-Diq (constraint.) " . . .But has not imposed on you hardship in your religion, the noble religion of your father, Abraham. Allah named you Muslims before and in this Book, so that the Messenger will witness (your actions) and you will be the witness over mankind." [22:78]

The Imam (as) said, " ‘Your father’ also is a reference to us. Allah has called us specially as Muslims in the heavenly books that were revealed before and in this Holy Book (the Holy Quran) The Holy Prophet (as) has testified in our favor by conveying the message of Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High. We bear witness to the activities of the people and on the Day of Judgment certify the faith of those who have acknowledged our Divine authority and reject those who have rejected our Divine authority."

Imam's (as) seeing heavens and the earth

Chapter: 6, Verse: 75

وَكَذَٰلِكَ نُرِي إِبْرَاهِيمَ مَلَكُوتَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَلِيَكُونَ مِنَ الْمُوقِنِينَ "So also did We show Abraham the power and the laws of the heavens and the earth, that he might (with understanding) have certitude." [6:75]

حدثنا محمد عن عبدالله بن محمد بن حجال عن ثلعبة عن عبدالرحيم عن ابى جعفر عليه السلام في هذه الاية وكذلك نرى ابراهيم ملكوت السموات والارضوليكون من الموقنين قال كشط له عن الارض حتى رأها ومن فيها وعن السماء حتى رأها ومن فيها والملك الذى يحملها والعرش ومن عليه وكذلك ارى صاحبكم

Narrated to me Muhammad bin Abdullah bin Muhammad bin Hajjal, from Salabah, from Abd Al-Rahman from Aba Jafar (as) regarding this verse:

“So also did We show Abraham the power and the laws of the heavens and the earth, that he might (with understanding) have certitude.” [6:75]

He (as) said, “The earth was opened for him [ibraheem (as)] until he saw it and saw what was in it and was opened for him the sky until he saw it and what was in it and saw the Angel who was carrying it and saw the throne (Arsh) and what was on it and the same is for your Master [imam (as)].”

[source: Basair Al-Darajat, Page. 120, Hadees. 1]

There are quite a few similar narrations with the same meaning in Basair Al-Darajat

Chapter: 3Verse: 42

وَإِذْ قَالَتِ الْمَلَائِكَةُ يَا مَرْيَمُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ اصْطَفَاكِ وَطَهَّرَكِ وَاصْطَفَاكِ عَلَىٰ نِسَاءِ الْعَالَمِينَ

"Behold! the angels said: "O Mary! Allah hath chosen thee and purified thee- chosen thee above the women of all nations." [3:42]

وبهذا الاسناد قال : حدثنا أحمد بن زياد بن جعفر الهمداني ، قال : حدثنا علي بن إبراهيم بن هاشم ، قال : حدثنا جعفر بن سلمة ، قال : حدثنا إبراهيم بن محمد الثقفي ، عن إبراهيم بن موسى بن اخت الواقدي ، قال : حدثنا أبو قتادة الحراني ، عن عبد الرحمان بن العلا الحضرمي ، عن سعيد بن المسيب ، عن ابن عباس قال : ان رسول الله ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) كان جالسا ذات يوم وعنده علي وفاطمة والحسن والحسين ( عليهم السلام ) فقال : اللهم إنك تعلم ان هؤلاء أهل بيتي وأكرم الناس علي ، فاحبب من يحبهم وابغض من يبغضهم ووال من والاهم وعاد من عاداهم واعن من أعانهم ، واجعلهم مطهرين من كل رجس معصومين من كل ذنب وأيدهم بروح القدس منك .

ثم قال ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) : يا علي أنت إمام امتي وخليفتي عليها بعدي وأنت قائد المؤمنين إلى الجنة ، وكأني أنظر الى ابنتي فاطمة قد أقبلت يوم القيامة على نجيب من نور ، عن يمينها سبعون ألف ملك وعن شمالها سبعون ألف ملك وبين يديها سبعون ألف ملك وخلفها سبعون ألف ملك ، تقود مؤمنات امتي إلى الجنة ، فأيما امرأة صلت في اليوم والليلة خمس صلوات وصامت شهر رمضان ، وحجت بيت الحرام وزكت مالها وأطاعت زوجها ووالت عليا بعدي دخلت الجنة بشفاعة ابنتي فاطمة ، وانها سيدة نساء العالمين ، فقيل : يارسول الله هي سيدة نساء عالمها ؟

فقال عليه وآله السلام : ذاك لمريم بنت عمران ، فأما ابنتي فهي سيدة نساء العالمين من الأولين والآخرين ، وانها لتقوم في محرابها فيسلم عليها سبعون ألف ( ملك ) من الملائكة المقربين ، وينادونها بما نادت به الملائكة مريم فيقولون : يا فاطمة ! ان الله اصطفاك وطهرك واصطفاك على نساء العالمين .

ثم التفت إلى علي ( عليه السلام ) فقال : يا علي ! ان فاطمة بضعة مني ، ونور عيني وثمرة فؤادي ، يسوؤني ما ساءها ويسرني ما سرها ، وانها أول لحوق يلحقني من أهل بيتي فأحسن إليها بعدي ، واما الحسن والحسين فهما ابناي وريحانتاي وهما سيدا شباب أهل الجنة ، فليكونا عليك كسمعك وبصرك .

ثم رفع ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) يديه إلى السماء فقال : اللهم اني اشهد ( ك ) أني محب لمن أحبهم ومبغض لمن أبغضهم ، وسلم لمن سالمهم وحرب لمن حاربهم ، وعدو لمن عاداهم وولي لمن والاهم

With the previous chanin of narrators: Ahmed bin Ziyad bin Jaafar Al-Hamdani, from Ali bin Ibrahim bin Hashim. from Jaafar bin Salmah. from Ibrahim bin Mohammad Al-Thaqafi. from Ibrahim bin Musa. from Abu Qotadah Al-Harrani. from Abdul Rahman bin Ala Al.Hazrami. from Saeed bin Musayeb. from Ibnh Abbas, who said:

The Messenger of Allaht (saww) was with Ali, Fatema, Hasan, and Husain (as) one day when he said:

O Allah! You know that they are my family and they are the most honourable people in my eyes. O Allah! Love those who love them, and hate those who hate them. Befriend their friends, antagonize those who antagonize them, and support those who support them. O Allah! Purify them from any uncleanliness; make them infallible and support them with the Holy Spirit.

Then the Prophet (saww): said:

O Ali! You are the Imam of my nation, you are my caliph on my nation after me, and you will lead the believers to Paradise.

It is as if l can see my daughter, Fatema, on the Day of Judgement. She will be brought on a platform made of light. There will be seventy thousand angels to her right, seventy thousand angels to her left, seventy thousand angels in front of her, and seventy thousand angels behind her, and she will be leading the (female) believers of my nation to Paradise.

Every woman who prays live times a day, fasts in the month of Ramadhan, goes to Elajj, pays Zakaat, obeys her husband, and accepts the Wilayat of Ali after me will enter Paradise with the intercession of my daughter.

Fatema is the Master of All of the Worlds' Women. People asked, "Is she the master of the women of her time?"

The Prophet (saww) replied replied: "Maryam was the master of the women of her time. My daughter, fatema, is the Master of All of the World's Women from the first to the last. Every time she stands in her mihrab for prayers, seventy thousand high-ranked angels come and say Salaam to her.

The angels call out to her, 'O Fatema! "Verily, Allah has chosen you, and purified you, and chosen you above all the women of the worlds" (3:42), which is the same way the angels used to call Maryam.

Then the Prophet (saww) looked at Ali and said:

O Ali! Fatema is a piece of my flesh, she is the light of my eyes, and she is the apple of my heart. That which saddens her saddens me, and that which pleases her pleases me. She is the first one (from my family) who will join me, so treat her with kindness after me.

As for Hasan and Husain, they are my sons and my flowers. They are the Masters of the Youth of Paradise, so treat them like you would treat your eyes and ears.

Then the Prophetes raised his hands toward the sky and said:

O Allah! I testify that I love those who love them. I hate those who hate them. I am at peace with those who are at peace with them. I fight those who fight them. I am the enemy of their enemies, and I am the friend of their friends.'

Knowledge of the Imam's (as)

Chapter: 36, Verse: 12

وَكُلَّ شَيْءٍ أَحْصَيْنَاهُ فِي إِمَامٍ مُّبِينٍ

“And we have kept the account of everything in an evident Imam” [36:12]

Following is taken from the sermon of Prophet Muhammad on the day of Ghadeer, as narrated by Imam Muhammad Baqir (as).

معاشر الناس ما من علم إلا و قد أحصاه الله في و كل علم علمنيه قد علمته عليا و المتقين من ولده و هو الإمام المبين الذي ذكره الله في سورة يس وَ كُلَّ شَيْ ءٍ أَحْصَيْناهُ فِي إِمامٍ مُبِينٍ

“O People! There is no knowledge except that Allah has kept its account in Me. And all the knowledge that I have, have taught Ali and the Pious ones from his progeny [imam’s (as)] and He [Ali (as)] is the evident Imams that has been mentioned by Allah in Chapter of Yasin, “And we have kept the account of everything in an evident Imam”. [36:12]

[source: Al-Yaqin, Sayyid Ibn Tawus, Pg. 350]

Variation of the same narration can be found in other books also like Ehtejaaj by Allama Tabrisi.

Why Adam (as) is not Ulil Azm?

Chapter: 20 Verse: 115

وَلَقَدْ عَهِدْنَا إِلَىٰ آدَمَ مِن قَبْلُ فَنَسِيَ وَلَمْ نَجِدْ لَهُ عَزْمًا

“We had already, beforehand, taken the covenant of Adam, but he forgot: and We found on his part no firm determination” [20:115]

محمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن محمد، عن علي بن الحكم، عن داود العجلي، عن زرارة، عن حمران، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام قال: إن الله تبارك وتعالى حيث خلق الخلق خلق ماء عذبا وماء مالحا اجاجا، فامتزج الماء ان، فأخذ طينا من أديم الارض فعركه عركا شديدا، فقال لاصحاب اليمين وهم كالذر يدبون: إلى الجنة بسلام وقال لاصحاب الشمال: إلى النار ولا ابالي، ثم قال: " ألست بربكم؟ قالوا: بلى شهدنا أن تقولوا يوم القيامة إنا كنا عن هذا غافلين " ثم أخذ الميثاق على النبيين، فقال: ألست بربكم وأن هذا محمد رسولي، وأن هذا علي أمير المؤمنين؟ قالوا: بلى فثبتت لهم النبوة وأخذ الميثاق على اولي العزم أنني ربكم ومحمد رسولي وعلي أمير المؤمنين وأوصياؤه من بعده ولاة أمري وخزان علمي عليهم السلام وأن المهدي أنتصر به لديني واظهر به دولتي وأنتقم به من أعدائي واعبد به طوعا وكرها قالوا: أقررنا يا رب وشهدنا، ولم يجحد آدم ولم يقر فثبتت العزيمة لهؤلاء الخسمة في المهدي ولم يكن لآدم عزم على الاقرار به وهو قوله عزوجل: " ولقد عهدنا إلى آدم من قبل فنسي ولم نجدله عزما " قال: إنما هو: فترك ثم أمر نارا فاججت فقال لاصحاب الشمال: ادخلوها فهابوها، وقال لاصحاب اليمين: ادخلوها فدخلوها فكانت عليهم بردا وسلاما، فقال أصحاب الشمال: يارب أقلنا، فقال: قد أقلتكم اذهبوا فاد خلوها، فها بوها، فثم ثبتت الطاعة والولاية والمعصية

Narrated from Abi Jafar (as):

When Allah wanted to create creation, He first created sweet water, and soar water. and then He mixed them. and then He mixed the soil which was made on it. and from that, creatures originated which got to the right and to the left. so He told those to the right to go to heaven with peace. and He told the ones on the left, to go to hell as He does not care for them. then He asked them: am I not your Lord? they replied: yes. this testimony was so that they dont say on day of qayamat that they were not aware.

Then He took oath from Prophets (as) that am I not your Lord and Mohammad (saww) your Prophet and Ali (as) your Amir-ul-momineen?

They said: yes, with this, their Prophet hood was testified.

And then He took oath from those Prophets who had strength (Ulil-Azm) that He is the Lord, Mohammad (as) is the Prophet, Ali (as) is the Amir-ul-momineen and the Ausia (as) who would come, they are the owners of His Amr and treasurers of His knowledge. And Mehdi (ajfs), through him will help my religion and through him would show my wealth and through him I will take the revenge from those who are my enemies and through him they would obey me if they like it or not.

They said: we accept and we testify O Lord! But Adam neither accepted nor rejected. so Azm/strength was proven for 5 of them regarding Mehdi (atfs) and Adam (as) did not get Azm/determination regarding him and so Allah said:- “We took oath from Adam (as) , but he forgot and we did not find Azm in him”. [20:115]

Imam (as) said: Here it means left.

Then Allah ordered fire so it lit up. So He told people on left to enter, but they did not. Then He told people on right to enter, they entered. and fire got cooled and peaceful. Then people on left said: forgive us. He said: forgiven, but now enter but they did not

from here, obedience, wilayat and disobedience are proven.

[source: Al-Kafi, Vol. 2 Pg. 8]

Note: Authentic Hadees as per the Chain of Narrators

عدة من أصحابنا، عن أحمد بن محمد، عن علي بن الحكم، عن مفضل بن صالح عن جابر، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام في قول الله عزوجل: " ولقد عهدنا إلى أدم من قبل فنسي ولم نجد له عزما " قال عهدنا إليه في محمد والائمة من بعده، فترك ولم يكن له عزم أنهم هكذا وإنما سمي أولوا العزم اولي العزم لانه عهد إليهم في محمد والاوصياء من بعده والمهدي وسيرته وأجمع عزمهم على أن ذلك كذلك والاقرار به

A number of our people have narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Ali ibn al-Hakam from Mufaddal ibn Salih from Jabir from abu ‘Abd Allah (as) about the words of Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most Gracious.

"We had already, beforehand, taken the covenant of Adam, but he forgot: and We found on his part no firm determination"[20:115]

The Imam (as) said, "It means that Allah took covenant from Adam about Muhammad (s.a.) and the Imams after him. He forgot it and he did not have Azm/firm determination. They are called ’Ulu al-‘Azm because with them a covenant was established to acknowledge Walaya (Leadership with Divine Authority) of Muhammad (s.a.) and the executors of his will and al-Mahdi and his discipline. They established their determination to acknowledge Walaya of Muhammad and the executors of his will."

[source: Al-Kafi, Vol. 2 Pg. 8]

الحسين بن محمد، عن معلى بن محمد، عن جعفر بن محمد بن عبيد الله، عن محمد بن عيسى القمي، عن محمد بن سليمان، عن عبدالله بن سنان، عن أبي عبدالله عليه السلام في قوله: " ولقد عهدنا إلى آدم من قبل " كلمات في محمد وعلي وفاطمة والحسن والحسين والائمة عليهم السلام من ذريتهم " فنسي " هكذا والله نزلت على محمد صلى الله عليه وآله

Al-Husayn ibn Muhammad has narrated from Mu‘alla ibn Muhammad from Ja‘far ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Ubayd Allah from Muhammad ibn ‘Isa al-Qummi from Muhammad ibn Sulayman from ‘Abd Allah ibn Sinan from abu ‘Abd Allah (as) about the words of Allah.

"We had already, beforehand, taken the covenant of Adam. (The commands consisted of certain words about Ali, Fatima, al-Hassan, al-Husayn and the Imams from their descendants (as) He (Adam) forgot Our covenant . . ." [20:115]

This is how it was revealed, by Allah, about Muhammad and his family, said the Imam (as)."

AhlulBait (as) dint prostrate to Adam (as)

Chapter: 38 Verse: 75

قَالَ يَا إِبْلِيسُ مَا مَنَعَكَ أَن تَسْجُدَ لِمَا خَلَقْتُ بِيَدَيَّ ۖ أَسْتَكْبَرْتَ أَمْ كُنتَ مِنَ الْعَالِينَ

Eblis, what prevented you from prostrating before what I have created with My own hands? Was it because of your pride or are you one of those who are exalted?' [38:75]

حدّثنا عبد الله بن محمد بن عبد الوهاب عن أبي الحسن محمد بن أحمد القواريري، عن أبي الحسين محمد بن عمّار، عن إسماعيل بن توبة، عن زياد بن عبد الله البكائي، عن سليمان بن الأعمش، عن أبي سعيد الخدري، قال: كنّا جلوساً مع رسول الله صلّى الله عليه وآله إذ أقبل إليه رجل فقال

يا رسول الله، أخبرني عن قول الله عزّ وجلّ لابليس: (أَسْتَكْبَرْتَ أمْ كُنْتَ مِنَ الْعَالِينَ) فمَن هم يا رسول الله الّذين هم أعلى من الملائكة؟ قال رسول الله صلّى الله عليه وآله: أنا وعليّ وفاطمة والحسن والحسين، كنّا في سرادق العرش نسبّح الله وتسبّح الملائكة بتسبيحنا قبل أن يخلق الله عزّ وجلّ آدم بألفي عام. فلمّا خلق الله عزّ وجلّ آدم، أمر الملائكة أن يسجدوا له، ولم يأمرنا بالسجود فسجدت الملائكة كلّهم إلاّ إبليس فانّه أبى ولم يسجد. فقال الله تبارك وتعالى: (أَسْتَكْبَرْتَ أمْ كُنْتَ مِنَ الْعَالِينَ) عنى من هؤلاء الخمسة المكتوبة أسماؤهم في سرادق العرش

Abdullah bin Mohammed bin Abdul-Wahab narrated to us from Abu al-Hasan Mohammed bin Ahmed al-Qawariri from Abu al-Hussein Mohammed bin Ammar from Ismaeel bin Tawba from Ziyad bin Abdullah al-Bukaai from Sulaiman bin al-Amish that Abu Saeed al-Khidri related:

We were sitting with the Prophet (s) when a man came and asked him:

"O Allah's Messenger, Allah says: 'Eblis, what prevented you from prostrating before what I have created with My own hands? Was it because of your pride or are you one of those who are exalted?' [38:75] Who are those exalted ones whose ranks are higher than the angels'?"

The Prophet (s) answered: Those are Ali, Fatima, al-Hasan, al-Hussein, and I. We were in the pavilion of the Divine Throne praising Allah. The angels were imitating us. That was two thousand years before the creation of Adam. When He created Adam, Allah, Powerful and Exalted is He, ordered the angels to prostrate themselves before him. Allah did not include us in this order. All of the angels therefore prostrated except Eblis who rejected to prostrate. Referring to the five individuals whose names are recorded on the pavilion of the Divine Throne, Allah said to Eblis, 'Was it because of your pride or are you one of those who are exalted?

It has been narrated to us Muhammad Bin Ismail, from Muhammad Bin Amro Al-Ziyaat, from Abdullah Bin Al-Waleed who said:

Abu Abdullah (as) said to me: "What are the statements that (some of) ours followers say regarding Isa and Musa and Amir-ul-Momineen (as)?"

I said, "They are sayin that Isa and Musa are of higher (status) than Amir-ul-Momineen (as)".

He (as) said, "Do they not think that Amir-ul-Momineen (as) knew what was known to the Messenger of Allah (saww)?"

I said, "Yes, and I told them that Ali knew whatever the Prophet knew but they say that He (as) was not higher than any of the ‘Ul Ul Azm’ Prophets."

Abu Abdullah (as) said, "Debate with them by the Book of Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì."

I said, "And in which subject from it should I debate with them?"

He (as) said, "Allah(swt) the High said to Musa,

"And We Wrote for him in the Tablets everything from the knowledge" [7:145]. Allah (swt) did not Write for Musa all things.

And Allah (swt) Blessed and High Said for Isa, "And that I may make clear to you part of what you differ in" [43:63].

And Said for Muhammad (saww), "And on the day when We will raise up in every people a witness against them from among themselves, and bring you as a witness against these - and We have revealed the Book to you explaining clearly everything" [16:89].

Abu Abdullah (as) said, "Allah (swt) Created the ‘Ul Ul Azm’ Prophets (as) from the Messengers (and distinguished them) by the knowledge, and We (as) inherited their knowledge, and Preferred Us (as) over them in their knowledge, and the knowledge of the Messenger of Allah (saww) is what they did not know, and Taught Us (as) the knowledge of the Messenger and their knowledge and (knowledge of) Trustees. Our Shiites are higher in status than their Shiites, for Our Shiites are with Us."

“But ye will not, except as Allah wills; for Allah is full of Knowledge and Wisdom” [Quran 76:30]

(Only quoting a part of a lengthy narration)

Imam Hasan Askar (as) said,

"You have come to ask about the Mufaw'wiza. They (Mufaw'wiza) have lied. But our hearts are containers of the Will of Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì, so when Allah (swt) wills, We will. And Allah (swt) has said, "And you will not will, but as Allah Wills" [Quran 76:30]

[source: Al-Gaibha - Sheikh Toosi, Pg. 159]

The following set of Hadees further support this:

Abal Hasan (Imam Kazim ) (as) said:

“Verily Allah (swt) has made the hearts of the Imam’s (as) the source/place of this Will. If Allah (swt) wills something, They (as) also Will the same. And it is as He said, “But ye will not, except as Allah wills.”

Mufazzal narrates from Aba Abdillah (as):

“If we were permitted to make the people know our situation near Allah (swt) and our status from Him, you will not (be able to) bear/carry it.”

Mufazzal said, “In (about) knowledge?”

Imam (as) says, “Knowledge is the easiest of that. Verily, Imam (as) is the place (nest) of the Will of Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì, They (as) do not will but what Allah (swt) Wills.”

Imagine if Allah swt put a verse that went like: "i have created the universe for Muhammed , Ali, Fatima , Hassan, and Hussein. Follow them, and come to me through doing the dua for them, for i have allocated them a high status of listening to dua's, coming to me and telling me the dua's you have uttered, and then, because of their holy position, answering your dua"

i am NOT trying to mock Allah swt.

A clear cut verse like this would have ended sects, and we would all be shia's.

I am still learning though

Sunni's use the same verses and derive different meanings...

if ONLY i could meet the Imam and clarify these things...

i want to be guided..

If only Allah swt sent down the tafseer of the Quran in a seperate book...

or made the tafseer the actual Quran.

I asked Abu Ja’far (as) about the Statement of Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì, "And on the Heights are men who know them all by their marks"[7:46]

He (as) said, This Descended in this community, and the men, They are the Imam's (as) from the Progeny of Muhammad (saww). I said, "And the Heights?"

He said: "The Path between the Paradise and the Fire. The ones for whom the Imam (as) from Us shall intercede, among the believers, the sinners, will be rescued, and the ones for whom They shall not intercede, for him is Fire"

It has been narrated to us by Al-Husayn Bin Muhammad Bin Aamir, from Moala Bin Muhammad, from Muhammad Bin Jamhour, from Abdullah Bin Abdul Rahmaan, from Al-Hasam Bin Waaqid, from Muqaran who said:

I heard Abu Abdullah (as) say, "Ibn Kawaa came up to Amir-ul-Momineen (as) and said, ‘O Amir-ul-Momineen (as) “And on the Heights are men who know them all by their marks" [7:46].

He (as) said, "We are the A’raaf (Recognisers). We recognize Our helpers, and We are those A’raaf (Recognisers) that Allah Mighty and Majestic cannot be recognized except on Their Path. We will not let anyone enter the Paradise except for the one, who recognizes US, and we will recognize him, and We will not let anyone enter the Fire except for the one who denies Us and We will deny him.

If Allah (swt) so Desires to, He can Recognize the servants Himself, but He has Made Us to be His Doors, and His Path, and His Way, and His Face to get to Him. The one who turned away from Our Wilayah, or preferred others over Us, so he is the one

who will fall headlong from the Bridge (Al-Siraat), and the one who stayed with it (Al-Wilayah) is not equal to the one who went where the people went. The people went to the turbid springs and some of it emptied into the others, whilst the one who came to Us came to the clear spring flowing constantly without depletion or being cut off."

[source: Basaair Al-Darajaat, Vol. 10, Chapter. 17, Hadees. 8]

The chain of narrators would not be a problem here as there are more narrations with the similar meaning (matn).

It has been narrated to us Abdullah Bin Aamir, from Abdul Rahmaan Bin Abu Najran who said, Abu Al-Hassan Al-Reza (as) wrote a letter which was read out to me in which He said:

Ali Bin Al-Husain (as) said that Muhammad (saww) was a Trustee of Allah (swt) in His Earth. When Allah (swt) Took (the soul of) Muhammad (saww) , the AhlulBait (as) inherited from Him, and We are Trustees of Allah (swt) in His Earth.

With Us is the knowledge of the calamities and the deaths, and the lineage of the Arabs and the birth of Islam, and I recognise the man if I were to see him, by his true faith and true hypocrisy, and Our Shiites have been in the Books by their names and the names of their fathers. Allah (swt) Took the covenant from us and from them. They respond to Our resource and enter Our gateway.

We are the Rescuers, and Our perfection is the perfection of the Prophets (as), and We are the sons of the successors, and We are the Special Ones in the

Book of Allah (swt) and We are the first of the people by Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì, and We are the first of the people by the Book of Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì, and We are the first of the people by the Religion of Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì, and We are the ones to whom His Religion was Prescribed to. He Said in His Book, [42:13] "He has made plain to you O Progeny of Muhammad (as) of the religion what He enjoined upon Nuh and that which We have revealed to you O Muhammad (saww) and what We had Enjoined upon Ibrahim, and Ismail, and Musa, and Isa, and Is’haq, and Yaqoub.

He Taught Us and it has reached Us what W learnt and have been entrusted with Their knowledge. We are the inheritors of the Determined Ones (Ul Ul Azm) from the Messengers (as). Establish the religion, O Progeny of Muhammad (as) and be not divided therein and be on the group for it is hard to the

Polytheists is that which you call them to the ones who have associated (others) by the Wilayah of Ali (as) which is what You are calling them to, the Wilayah of Ali (as), surely Allah ÓÈÍÇäå æÊÚÇáì, O Muhammad (swt) and guides to Himself him who turns (to Him), frequently in answering you to Wilayah of Ali (as)."

حدثنا العباس بن معروف عن حماد بن عيسى عن ربعي عن محمد بن مسلم عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام في قول الله تعالى ولو أنهم أقاموا التوراة والأنجيل وما انزل إليهم من ربهم قال الولاية

Narrated to us Al-Abbas Bin Maroof, from Hamaad Bin Isa, from Rabaie, from Muhammad Bin Muslim who has said:

Abu Jafar (as) regarding the Statement of Allah (swt) the High, If they had stood fast by the Torah and the Injeel and that which was revealed unto them from their Lord" [5:66], said: (It is) The Wilayah.

[source: Basaair Al-Darajaat, Vol. 2, Chapter. 11, Hadees. 2]

All Narrators are trustworthy, Hadees is Authentic (Saheeh)

Salam.

Have started a page of 'Tafseer' on my website.

http://www.marefatea...ait.com/tafseer

The Purpose of this page is to highlight the status & authority of the AhlulBait (as) from the verses of the Holy Quran and Tafsir from the narrations of the Imam's (as).

Tafseer of Bismillah:

حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد، قال: حدثنا محمد بن الحسين الصفار، عن العباس بن معروف، عن صفوان بن يحيى، عمن حدثه، عن أبي عبد الله (عليه السلام): أنه سئل عن (بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم) ؟ فقال: " الباء بهاء الله، والسين سناء الله، والميم ملك الله. قال: قلت: الله ؟ قال: الألف آلاء الله على خلقه من النعيم بولايتنا، واللام إلزام الله خلقه على ولايتنا. قلت: فالهاء ؟ فقال: هوان لمن خالف محمدا وآل محمد صلوات الله عليهم أجمعين

Narrated to me (Sheikh Sadooq) Muhammad bin Husain Al-Saffar, from Abbas bin Ma'roof, from Safwaan bin Yahya, from Aba Abdillah (as):

I (narrator) asked about "Bismillah Al-Rahman Al-Raheem".

Imam (as) said, 'BA' is for glory of Allah, 'SEEN' is for splendor of Allah, 'MEEM' is for Kingdom of Allah.

I (narrator) asked what is meant by "Allah".

Imam (as) said: 'Alif' stands for the Blessing (Nemat) of our Wilayat on Gods creations. 'Laam' stands for the obligation of our Wilayat on Gods creations. And 'Hey' stands for disgrace for those who oppose Muhammad (saww) and the progeny of Muhammad (as).”

[source: At-Tauheed, Sheikh Sadooq, Pg. 230]

I will continue to post on this thread as I keep on adding on to my website for the benefit of those who are on shiachat.com

Wassalam

This looks like plain ghulu, kufr, and shirk. What has the Name of the Almighty God to do with one of His creations? Also, non-Muslim Arabs call God Allah.

And its very well known that as per the narrations the Imam's (as) have the complete knowledge of the Quran

I have looked at your website. You are very dedicated in your efforts to build the website. Since the Imams have complete knowledge (see above quote) they should have tafsirs for the Verse of Light (24:35) and for Verse 96:1. Is the interpretation of the Verse of Light (24:35) on your website? Is the interpretation for Verse 96:1 on your website?

Thank You

Yes we have the Tafseer from the Imam's (as) for these verses as well.

Here is the Tafseer for the verse 96:1-5:

حدثنا احمد بن محمد الشيبانى قال: حدثنا محمد بن احمد قال: حدثنا اسحاق بن محمد قال: حدثنا محمد بن علي قال: حدثنا عثمان بن يوسف عن عبدالله بن كيسان عن ابى جعفر عليه السلام قال: نزل جبرئيل على محمد صلى الله عليه وآله فقال: يا محمد إقرأ قال وما أقرأ؟ قال إقرأ باسم ربك الذي خلق يعني خلق نورك الاقدام قبل الاشياء خلق الانسان من علق يعني خلقك من نطفة (علقة ط) وشق منك عليا (إقرأ وربك الاكرم الذي علم بالقلم) يعني علم علي بن ابي طالب (علم الانسان ما لم يعلم) يعني علم عليا مالم يعلم قبل ذلك

Narrated to me Ahmad bin Muhammad Al-Shibani, from Muhammad bin Ahmad, from Ishaq bin Muhammad, from Muhammad bin Ali, from Usman bin Yusuf, from Abdullah bin Keesan from Abi Jafar (as)

Abi Jafar (as) said, "Jibraeel descended upon Muhammad (saww) and said, "O Muhammad, Read"

Prophet Muhammad (saww) said, "And what should I read?"

Jibraeel said, "Read in the name of your Lord the one who created" [96:1], meaning He created Your Noor (light) long before (creation of) other things."

"Created the Man from a Clot" [96:2], meaning He created You from a clot (of Noor as per the above words) and split from you Ali (as)."

"Read and Your Lord is the most generous. The one who gave knowledge with the Pen" [96:3-4], meaning He taught Ali ibn Ali Talib (as)."

"He gave knowledge to the Man what he did not know" [96:5], meaning He taught Ali (as) what He did not know before."

Here is Tafseer of the verse of Noor:

عَلِيُّ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ شَمُّونٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ الْأَصَمِّ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ الْقَاسِمِ عَنْ صَالِحِ بْنِ سَهْلٍ الْهَمْدَانِيِّ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع فِي قَوْلِ اللَّهِ تَعَالَى اللَّهُ نُورُ السَّماواتِ وَ الْأَرْضِ مَثَلُ نُورِهِ كَمِشْكاةٍ (النور -: 35 -) فَاطِمَةُ ع فِيها مِصْباحٌ (النور -: 35 -) الْحَسَنُ الْمِصْباحُ فِي زُجاجَةٍ (النور -: 35 -) الْحُسَيْنُ الزُّجاجَةُ كَأَنَّها كَوْكَبٌ دُرِّيٌّ (النور -: 35 -) فَاطِمَةُ كَوْكَبٌ دُرِّيٌّ بَيْنَ نِسَاءِ أَهْلِ الدُّنْيَا يُوقَدُ مِنْ شَجَرَةٍ مُبارَكَةٍ (النور -: 35 -) إِبْرَاهِيمُ ع زَيْتُونَةٍ لا شَرْقِيَّةٍ وَ لا غَرْبِيَّةٍ (النور -: 35 -) لَا يَهُودِيَّةٍ وَ لَا نَصْرَانِيَّةٍ يَكادُ زَيْتُها يُضِي‏ءُ (النور -: 35 -) يَكَادُ الْعِلْمُ يَنْفَجِرُ بِهَا وَ لَوْ لَمْ تَمْسَسْهُ نارٌ نُورٌ عَلى‏ نُورٍ (النور -: 35 -) إِمَامٌ مِنْهَا بَعْدَ إِمَامٍ يَهْدِي اللَّهُ لِنُورِهِ مَنْ يَشاءُ (النور -: 35 -) يَهْدِي اللَّهُ لِلْأَئِمَّةِ مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَ يَضْرِبُ اللَّهُ الْأَمْثالَ لِلنَّاسِ (النور -: 35 -) قُلْتُ أَوْ كَظُلُماتٍ (النور -: 40 -) قَالَ الْأَوَّلُ وَ صَاحِبُهُ يَغْشاهُ مَوْجٌ (النور -: 40 -) الثَّالِثُ مِنْ فَوْقِهِ مَوْجٌ (النور -: 40 -) ظُلُمَاتٌ الثَّانِي بَعْضُها فَوْقَ بَعْضٍ (النور -: 40 -) مُعَاوِيَةُ وَ فِتَنُ بَنِي أُمَيَّةَ إِذا أَخْرَجَ يَدَهُ (النور -: 40 -) الْمُؤْمِنُ فِي ظُلْمَةِ فِتْنَتِهِمْ لَمْ يَكَدْ يَراها وَ مَنْ لَمْ يَجْعَلِ اللَّهُ لَهُ نُوراً (النور -: 40 -) إِمَاماً مِنْ وُلْدِ فَاطِمَةَ ع فَما لَهُ مِنْ نُورٍ (النور -: 40 -) إِمَامٍ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ وَ قَالَ فِي قَوْلِهِ يَسْعى‏ نُورُهُمْ بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَ بِأَيْمانِهِمْ (الحديد -: 12 -) أَئِمَّةُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ تَسْعَى بَيْنَ يَدَيِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَ بِأَيْمَانِهِمْ حَتَّى يُنْزِلُوهُمْ مَنَازِلَ أَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ

عَلِيُّ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْحَسَنِ عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ عَنْ مُوسَى بْنِ الْقَاسِمِ الْبَجَلِيِّ وَ مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنِ الْعَمْرَكِيِّ بْنِ عَلِيٍّ جَمِيعاً عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ جَعْفَرٍ عَنْ أَخِيهِ مُوسَى ع مِثْلَه‏

Ali ibn Muhammad and Muhammad ibn al-Hassan have narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad from Muhammad ibn al-Hassan ibn Shammun from ‘Abd Allah ibn ‘Abd al-Rahman al-Asamm from ‘Abd Allah ibn al-Qasim from Salih ibn Sahl al-Hamadani who has said the following.

"Abu ‘Abd Allah (as) has said the following About the statement of Allah, the Most High, "Allah is the light of the heavens and the earth. A metaphor for His light is a lantern in which there is a lamp placed in a glass. The glass is like a shining star, which is lit from a blessed olive tree that is neither eastern nor western. Its oil almost lights up even though the fire has not touched it. It is light upon light. Allah guides to His light whomever He wants. Allah uses various metaphors. He has the knowledge of all things." (24:35) The (Imam) (as) said that the lantern metaphorically stands for the Holy lady, Fatima (as) the lamp stands for (Imam) al-Hassan (as) and the glass stands for (Imam) al-Husayn (as). The shining star stands for the Holy lady Fatima (as) who shines among the ladies of the world. The blessed olive tree stands for Prophet Abraham. Neither eastern nor western means not Jewish nor Christian. ‘Its oil almost lights up’ means that it almost bursts up with knowledge. ‘Light up on light’ means that there will one (Imam) after the other (Imam) (as) ‘Allah guides to His light who ever He wants’ means that Allah guides through the Imam whomever He wants." About ‘Allah uses various metaphors’ I said, "Or it (the deeds of the unbelievers) are like the darkness of a deep, stormy sea with layers of giant waves, covered by dark clouds. It is darkness upon darkness whereby even if one stretches out his hands he can not see them. One can have no light unless Allah gives him light. (24:40)

The (Imam) (as) said, " ‘darkness’ refers to the first and his friend, ‘with layers of giant waves’ refers to the third, ‘covered with darkness’ refers to the second. ‘It is darkness up on darkness’ refers to Mu‘awiya and the disasters caused by the Amavids. ‘Even if one stretches out his hands’ means that even if a true believer would stretch his hands in such disastrous condition ‘he can not see them’. ‘One can have no light unless Allah gives him light, means the light from the children of the Holy Lady, Fatima (as) ‘Can have no light’ means an (Imam) on the Day of Judgment." The (Imam) (as) said that, "On the Day of Judgment you will see the believers with their light shining in front of them and to their right. They will be told, "Paradise wherein streams flow is the glad news for you today. You will live therein forever. This is the greatest triumph." (57:12), the shining light in front . . .’ is a reference to the Imam (as) whom would walk in front and on the right of the true believers until they all enter paradise.

Ali ibn Muhammad and Muhammad ibn al-Hassan have narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad from Musa ibn al-Qasim al-Bajali and Muhammad ibn Yahya from al-‘Amrakiy ibn Ali altogether from Ali ibn Ja‘far (as) from his brother a similar Hadith.

Hadees is Saheeh (Authentic) as per the second chain. See Miral Al-Uqool, Vol.2 Pg. 358

You don't find the following strange?

I find it very strange. I am very sure it's a fabrication, a lie, or a distortion. The word Allah existed before Muhammed. Elah is used in hewbrew or armaic i think.

Seriously. We are just proving ridiculous things on hot air.

The fact these things aren't explicit should say it all.
