Does Shia literature hold any information regarding Krishna, an avatar of the Hindu deity Vishnu? Or a mention of Vishnu himself, or any other avatar like, say, Parashuram? Jazak-Allah

alhamdu lillahi Rabbil aalameen.

la ilaaha illaa Allaahu Al-'Atheemu Al-Haleemu, la ilaaha illaa Allaahu Rabbul 'arshil-‘atheemi,

la ilaaha illaa Allaahu Rabbus-samaawaati wa Rabbul-ardhi wa Rabbul-'arshil-kareemi

there is no god except Allah, the All-Mighty, the Forbearing; there is no god except Allah, the Lord of the Mighty Throne;

there is no god except Allah, Lord of the heavens, Lord of the earth and Lord of the noble Throne.

Jazak-Allah for your reply. Let's see if other Shias have anything to add.

Whats the point of this thread? Also, what makes you think Shia Islam would have anything on Hindu Gods?

If you have anything on it then do share.

No, brother, nothing at the moment that I would want to share. Would you be having any information to add. Jazak-Allah

I have read Bhagavad Gita. Many places you get the hint of oneness of creator. The Holy Quran says all nations of the world at some point of time have received prophets and message of God. Overtime the people have changed the true message. There is also a tradition that says that Imam Ali was present physically by the mirace of Allah in certain events of the past prophets of Allah. In Nahjul Balagha Imam Ali praises Prophet Musa with his Physique and woolen clothing as if he had seen him. There is also a belief that says Shiva is Imam Ali (as). Imam Ali (as) appeared before his birth to aid the people by the miracle of God. Furthermore the Hindus have more respect for Imam Hussein (as) than some Muslims

@zameena: Jazak-Allah for your reply.

@Ali Abdullah 313: Can your replies be taken to mean that there is no reference to (what we may call) Hinduism within Shia literature? Jazak-Allah

I seriously doubt Islam has anything to say about Krishna. Islam is a very new belief system.

Hindusm is an extremelly old religion.

I have to respectfully disagree with you, sister. Islam is the most ancient of belief systems - far older than Hinduism. There could be many reasons as to why it is not mentioned.

The only "Shi'ah" who mention or acknowledge Krishna are modern Nizari Isma'ilis (aka Agha Khanis) of the Satpanth persuasion, which is not surprising since their ancestors were mostly Hindus from the Indian subcontinent who embraced Isma'ilism.

Shi'a Islam recognises Hinduism only as a religion of Kufr and Shirk and does not endorse or accept any of its theological beliefs or its mythologies. Those ignorant 'Shi'a' in India who hold favourable views of Hindus or "Hussaini Brahmins" are lost and deviated. They try to mix the pure Islam of Ahlulbayt(as) with the filth of Hinduism in the hopes of pleasing the Hindus.

Close your mouth when grown folks are talking. No need for disrespect dont disgrace the Shia madhab by your childish attitude.

To respond to the original question of the thread I have never come accross any hadith that speaks of Krishna but there is a hindu book where Krishna says "Oh Ahlia! Oh Ahlia! Oh Ahlia!" when he was praying for help. As we believe every Prophet called Ali for help.

And all the original hindu books say God is one and Brahma and others were not called Gods but prophets, they also denounce idol worship and praying to demi-gods. These are the original hindu scriptures that the Brahmins of today do not let the common man read.
