My brother and sisters in faith and creation, ÇáÓáÇã Úáíßã

The hatred of Amir al-Mu'minin 'Ali ibn Abi Talib (as) and his followers is something notorious. The curious amongst us has asked about this matter and answers has been provided. In a few words, it is due to the corrupt narration intervened in the Sunni narrations by Jewish 'scholars*'. Allah says:

'Surely You will find the most hostile of all people towards the faithful to be the Jews and the polytheists...' - [al-Ma'idah, 5:82]

Note: The faithful refers to Amir al-Mu'minin and his followers.

Nevertheless, I am going to specify this topic about the ablution of the Sunni's and the Jews, especially those who prevailed at the time of Solomon (as).

'And to David We gave Solomon -- what an excellent servant! Indeed he was a penitent [soul]. When one evening there were displayed before him prancing steeds, he said, 'Indeed I have preferred the love of [worldly] niceties to the remembrance of my Lord until [the sun] disappeared behind the [night's] veil.' Bring it1 back for me!' Then he [and the others] began to stroke their legs and necks.' - [sad, 38:30-33]

1 Or 'them'. The pronoun may be taken as referring to the sun or to the horses. However, most exegetes have taken it as referring to the sun and its setting. While Solomon was engaged in viewing the horses, the sun set, and time of the afternoon prayer (supererogatory or obligatory) elapsed. According to a tradition narrated from al-Imam al-Sadiq (pbuh), when Solomon noticed that the sun had set, he called out to the angels to bring it back so that he could offer the afternoon prayer. Also, according to this tradition, the wiping of legs and necks mentioned in the verse refers to the performance of ablution (wudu') before the prayer by Solomon and his men as prescribed in their Law.

The people of intellect can clearly see a distinct similarities between the ablution performed by the Sunnis and by the people of Solomon, the Jews.

*Hired by the so-called caliphate, before Amir al-Mu'minin 'Ali ibn Abi Talib (pbuh).

Note: The translation and the exegete of the verse(s) is an extract from the phrase-by-phrase English translation by 'Ali Quli Qara'i.

Jews also have beards like us. Also Jews of Suleiman AS who followed him righteously are considered believers just as much as followers of Musa AS, Issa AS, and all the other disciples or our prophets.

Do not try to pull the thread from its original source towards your own support, you will only damage this fragile garment.

Our beards is a part of our creation while our Shari'ah law is according to the development of society. For every nation there were a Shari'ah [refer to Surat al-Ma'idah]; with their own prohibited and permitted, recommended and reprehensible; and its like. We, Muslims, were brought a book different from the books of Moses and Abraham, however, all three of them called towards a known and worshiped Lord. Each and every messenger called his nation to Allah and a book was revealed according to the practical need of it. Consequently, even though the Torah and the Bible carry the same message, it does not carry the same laws. Indeed, the laws of Israel [Jacob] differs from the Laws of Muhammad due to the age and era, and it [the Quran] being the final and complete message.

You can therefore not justify a book whom Allah has mentioned in the Quran as being corrupted to also be a part of our Sunnah; otherwise we would be following the Jews in every manner. Furthermore, Imam Ja'far al-Sadiq clearly stated that is 'prescribed in their Law' and not ours. Do the Christians follow the Sunnah of the Jews, or do the Muslims follow the Sunnah of the Christians?

Lastly, you will not find a claim in this post and the one before it anything defaming the status of Solomon, Moses, and Jesus; saying they are not righteous or disbelievers.
