(باب) * (ان الأئمة ورثوا علم النبي وجميع الأنبياء والأوصياء) * * (الذين من قبلهم) * 1 - علي بن إبراهيم، عن أبيه، عن عبد العزيز بن المهتدي، عن عبد الله بن جندب أنه كتب إليه الرضا عليه السلام: أما بعد، فان محمدا صلى الله عليه وآله كان أمين الله في خلقه فلما قبض صلى الله عليه وآله كنا أهل البيت ورثته، فنحن أمناء الله في أرضه ، عندنا علم البلايا والمنايا، وأنساب العرب ، ومولد الاسلام، وإنا لنعرف الرجل إذا رأيناه بحقيقة الايمان، وحقيقة النفاق، وإن شيعتنا لمكتوبون بأسمائهم وأسماء آبائهم، أخذ الله علينا وعليهم الميثاق، يردون موردنا ويدخلون مدخلنا، ليس على ملة الاسلام غيرناوغيرهم، نحن النجباء النجاة، ونحن أفراط الأنبياء ونحن أبناء الأوصياء، ونحن المخصوصون في كتاب الله عز وجل، ونحن أولى الناس بكتاب الله، ونحن أولى الناس برسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله، ونحن الذين شرع الله لنا دينه فقال في كتابه: " شرع لكم (يا آل محمد) من الدين ما وصى به نوحا (قد وصانا بما وصى به نوحا) والذي أوحينا إليك (يا محمد) وما وصينا به إبراهيم وموسى وعيسى (فقد علمنا وبلغنا علم ما علمنا واستودعنا علمهم نحن ورثة اولي العزم من الرسل) أن أقيموا الدين (يا آل محمد) ولا تتفرقوا فيه (وكونوا على جماعة) كبر على المشركين (من أشرك بولاية علي) ما تدعوهم إليه (من ولاية علي) إن الله (يا محمد) يهدي إليه من ينيب " من يجيبك إلى ولاية علي عليه السلام.

H 598, Ch. 33, h 1, (Vol 1 English)

Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ‘Abd al-‘Aziz ibn al-Muhtadi from ‘Adallah ibn Jundab to who Imam al-Rida ((عليه السلام).) wrote the following. "Thereafter, (thanking Allah) Muhammad (s.a.) was the trustee of Allah for His creatures. When he was taken away from this world we, Ahl al-Bayt inherited him, thus, we are the trustees of Allah over His earth. With us is the knowledge of the sufferings, the death, the genealogy of the Arabs and the birth of Islam. We know the man when we see him in the truth of faith or hypocrisy. Our followers (Shi‘a) are listed (with us) by their names and the names of their fathers. Allah has established a covenant with them and with us. They land wherever we would do so and enter wherever we would enter. There is no besides us and our followers as living the Islamic culture. We are the noble saviors and the descendants of the prophets and of the children of the successors of the prophets. We the ones to whom the book of Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High, has come exclusively. We, of all people, have the first priority (closeness) to the book of Allah.

We, of all people, have the first priority (closeness) to the Messenger of Allah. For us He formed His religion. "He has established for you (family of Muhammad) a form of religion which is of the commands to Noah {we are commanded with whatever Noah was commanded}. It is of the mattes that We have revealed to you (Muhammad) and of the commands to Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus to follow.{We have taught and preached the knowledge that was taught to us. We were given the knowledge of these prophets. We are the heirs of the commissioned Messengers}. (He has explained it) so that you (family of Muhammad) would be steadfast and united (all in a united group) in your religion. What you call the polytheists {polytheists in the acknowledgement of the Divine authority of Imam Ali ((عليه السلام).} to{the acknowledgement of the Divine authority of Imam Ali ((عليه السلام).}is extremely grave for them. God {O Muhammad} attracts to (the religion) whomever He wants and guides to it whoever turns to Him in repentance." (42:13)

Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Ali ibn al-Hakam

from ‘Abd al-Rahman ibn Kathir from abu Ja‘far ((عليه السلام).) who has said the following. "The Messenger of Allah has said, ‘The first successor and executor of the will on earth was Hibbatullah, the son of Adam. No prophet has ever left this world without first leaving behind one who would execute his will. The prophets were one hundred twenty thousand persons. Five of them were commissioned Messengers, like Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (s.a.) Ali ibn abu Talib ((عليه السلام).) was the Hibbatullah for Muhammad (s.a.).He inherited the knowledge of the executors of the wills of the prophets and the knowledge of those who were before him. (Is not it true) that Muhammad (s.a.) inherited the knowledge of the prophets and the Messengers who lived before him? It is written on the columns of the throne, "Hamza is the loin of Allah and the loin of His Messenger. He (Hamza) is the master of the martyrs. On top of the throne is Amir al-Mu’minin Ali ((عليه السلام).). This evidence against those who deny our rights and refuse to yield to us our right of inheritance. We are not forbidden to speak. Before us is all certainty. What supporting evidence could be more clear than this."

A number of our people has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ‘Abdallah ibn al-Hajjal from Ahmad ibn ‘Umar al-Halabi from abu Basir who has said the following. "I went to abu ‘Abdallah ((عليه السلام).) and said, "May Allah take my soul in service for your cause, I like to ask you a question. Is there anyone else in this house who may hear my words?" The Imams ((عليه السلام).) then folded the curtain between his room and the other room next to it and looked into it. Then the Imams ((عليه السلام).) said, "O abu Muhammad, ask whatever you wish." I said, "May Allah take my soul in service for your cause, your followers say that the Messenger of Allah taught Ali ((عليه السلام).) a thousand chapter of knowledge and from each chapter there opens a thousand chapter. I then said, ‘This, I swear by Allah, is knowledge.’" He would mark the ground with his staff (a sign of thinking in normal people) for a while and said, "That is knowledge but it is not that." The narrators has said that The Imam ((عليه السلام).) then said, "O abu Muhammad, with us there is al-Jami‘a. What do they know what al-Jami‘ is?" I then asked, "May Allah take my soul in service for your cause, what is al-Jami‘a? The Imam ((عليه السلام).) said, it is a parchment seventy yards by the yards of the Messenger of Allah long that contains his dictations that is in graved in to with the right hand writing of Ali ((عليه السلام).). It contains all the lawful and unlawful and all matters that people need, even the law to of compensation for A number of our people has narrated from scratch caused to a person.

Concluding Words:

The above autehntic and reliable hadith provide the answer to those who spread misconpcetions about the knowledge of the puriied Imams (12 Imams) from the family of the prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) like:

"The blessed Aimmah at times, did not even know when their next meal would come from. It is not necessary for the Imams to have knowledge of all things, sciences etc. The Imams didn't know about quantumn physics, nor is there evidence they knew about marine biology, etc. It is possible we know far more science they did."

Such childish statements we see many time from some accounts at SC but these are baseless without any authenticty.  The hadith that are authentic posted in this thread provide the evidence for the knolwegde of Imams being the inheritor of the knolwge of the prophets (عليه السلام)  and the knolwgede coming from our prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم).

2 - محمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن محمد، عن علي بن الحكم، عن عبدالرحمن بن كثير، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله إن أول وصي كان على وجه الارض هبة الله بن آدم وما من نبى مضى إلا وله وصي وكان جميع الانبياء مائة ألف نبي وعشرين ألف نبي، منهم خمسة اولو العزم: نوح وإبراهيم وموسى وعيسى ومحمد عليهم السلام وإن علي بن أبي طالب كان هبة الله لمحمد، وورث علم الاوصياء، وعلم من كان قبله، أما إن محمدا ورث علم من كان قبله من الانبياء والمرسلين.

 على قائمة العرش مكتوب: " حمزة أسد الله وأسد رسوله وسيد الشهداء، وفي ذؤابة العرش علي أمير المؤمنين " فهذه حجتنا على من أنكر حقنا، وجحد ميراثنا، وما منعنا من الكلام وأمامنا اليقين، فأي حجة تكون أبلغ من هذا.

Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from Ali ibn al-Hakam

from ‘Abd al-Rahman ibn Kathir from abu Ja‘far ((عليه السلام).) who has said the following. "The Messenger of Allah has said, ‘The first successor and executor of the will on earth was Hibbatullah, the son of Adam. No prophet has ever left this world without first leaving behind one who would execute his will. The prophets were one hundred twenty thousand persons. Five of them were commissioned Messengers, like Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (s.a.) Ali ibn abu Talib ((عليه السلام).) was the Hibbatullah for Muhammad (s.a.).He inherited the knowledge of the executors of the wills of the prophets and the knowledge of those who were before him. (Is not it true) that Muhammad (s.a.) inherited the knowledge of the prophets and the Messengers who lived before him? It is written on the columns of the throne, "Hamza is the loin of Allah and the loin of His Messenger. He (Hamza) is the master of the martyrs. On top of the throne is Amir al-Mu’minin Ali ((عليه السلام).). This evidence against those who deny our rights and refuse to yield to us our right of inheritance. We are not forbidden to speak. Before us is all certainty. What supporting evidence could be more clear than this."

داود، وإن محمدا ورث سليمان، وإنا ورثنا محمدا، وإن عندنا علم التوراة والانجيل والزبور، وتبيان ما في الالواح قال: قلت: إن هذا لهو العلم؟ قال: ليس هذا هو العلم، إن العلم الذي يحدث يوما بعد يوم وساعة بعد ساعة

Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Salama ibn al-Khattab from ‘Adallah ibn Muhammad from ‘Adallah ibn al-Qasim from Zur‘a ibn Muhammad from al-Mufaddal ibn ‘Umar from who has said the following. "Solomon inherited David. Muhammad (s.a.) inherited Solomon and we inherited Muhammad (s.a.). We have the knowledge of Torah and the Gospel (Injil), the Psalms, (al-Zabur) and the explanation of what the tablets contained." I (the narrator) said, "This certainly is the knowledge." The Imams ((عليه السلام).) said, "This is not knowledge. Knowledge is what happens day after day and hour after hour."

H 685, Ch. 49, h 2

Ali has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from ibn ‘Udhaynah from Zurarah from abu Ja‘far ((عليه السلام).) who has said the following.

"Once Jibril brought from Paradise two pieces of pomegranate to the Messenger of Allah and brought him two pieces of pomegranates. The Messenger of Allah ate one of them and broke the other one into two pieces. He then ate one half and gave the other half to Ali ((عليه السلام).) who also ate it ((عليه السلام).). The Messenger of Allah said, "The first one that I ate was prophet-hood. There is no share in it for you. The other one is knowledge in which you are my partner."

Concluding Words:

The above autehntic and reliable hadith provide the answer to those who spread misconpcetions about the knowledge of the puriied Imams (12 Imams) from the family of the prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) like:

"The blessed Aimmah at times, did not even know when their next meal would come from. It is not necessary for the Imams to have knowledge of all things, sciences etc. The Imams didn't know about quantumn physics, nor is there evidence they knew about marine biology, etc. It is possible we know far more science they did."

Such childish statements we see many time from some accounts at SC but these are baseless without any authenticty.  The hadith that are authentic posted in this thread provide the evidence for the knolwegde of Imams being the inheritor of the knolwge of the prophets (عليه السلام)  and the knolwgede coming from our prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم).

Salam Brother!

I would like to add few more ahadith to this thread:

علي بن إبراهيم القمّي في تفسيره بإسناده: عن أبي جعفر(عليه السلام)، قال: (إنّ رسول الله(صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم) أفضل الراسخين في العلم، قد علم جميع ما أنزل الله عليه من التنزيل والتأويل، وما كان الله لينزل عليه شيئاً لم يعلمه تأويله، وأوصياؤه من بعده يعلمونه كلّه)

(Indeed, the Messenger of God (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) is the best of those who are well-established in knowledge. He knew all that God revealed to him in terms of revelation and interpretation, and God would not reveal anything to him that he did not know its interpretation, and his successors after him know it all.)

تفسير القمّي 1: 96 سورة آل عمران، : بصائر الدرجات، للصفّار: 223 ج13 باب (10) في الأئمّة أنّهم الراسخون في العلم، الكافي 1: 213 كتاب الحجّة، باب أنّ الأئمّة قد أوتوا العلم

وعن الفضيل بن يسار، عن أبي جعفر(عليه السلام)، قال: (( وَمَا يَعلَمُ تَأوِيلَهُ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَالرَّاسِخُونَ فِي العِلمِ )) نحن نعلمه

He (عليه السلام) said: ((And no one knows its interpretation except Allah and those who are firmly rooted in knowledge)) We know it..

تفسير العياشي 1: 164 سورة آل عمران ح7، بحار الأنوار 89: 382 باب (8) إنّ للقرآن ظهراً وبطناً.

وعن أبي بصير، عن أبي عبد الله(عليه السلام)، قال: (نحن الراسخون في العلم، فنحن نعلم تأويله)

He (عليه السلام) said: We are well-grounded in knowledge, and we know its interpretation.

After mentioning these ahadith, I am quoting few verses of Quran:

وَعِندَهُ مَفَاتِحُ الْغَيْبِ لاَ يَعْلَمُهَا إِلاَّ هُوَ وَيَعْلَمُ مَا فِي الْبَرِّ وَالْبَحْرِ وَمَا تَسْقُطُ مِن وَرَقَةٍ إِلاَّ يَعْلَمُهَا وَلاَ حَبَّةٍ فِي ظُلُمَاتِ الأَرْضِ وَلاَ رَطْبٍ وَلاَ يَابِسٍ إِلاَّ فِي كِتَابٍ مُّبِينٍ

6:59)

It is obvious that a hujjah of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) upon His creation would also be a hujjah for His infinite knowledge. Whatever He (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) has placed "in" kitabin mubeen is placed there by Him. 

وَلَوْ أَنَّ قُرْآنًا سُيِّرَتْ بِهِ الْجِبَالُ أَوْ قُطِّعَتْ بِهِ الْأَرْضُ أَوْ كُلِّمَ بِهِ الْمَوْتَىٰ ۗ بَلْ لِلَّهِ الْأَمْرُ جَمِيعًا ۗ 

13:31)

According to a hadith of al-Kafi, Imam (عليه السلام) has explained this verse as:

ولو أن قرآنا سيرت به الجبال أو قطعت به الأرض أو كلم به الموتى (3) " وقد ورثنا نحن هذا القرآن الذي فيه ما تسير به الجبال وتقطع به البلدان، وتحيى به الموتى، ونحن نعرف الماء تحت الهواء، وإن في كتاب الله لآيات ما يراد بها أمر إلا أن يأذن الله به مع ما قد يأذن الله مما كتبه الماضون، جعله الله لنا في أم الكتاب، إن الله يقول: " وما من غائبة في السماء والأرض إلا في كتاب مبين (4) " ثم قال: " ثم أورثنا الكتاب الذين اصطفينا من عبادنا (5) " فنحن الذين اصطفانا الله عز وجل وأورثنا هذا الذي فيه تبيان كل شئ.

Abu Ali al-Ash‘ari has narrated from Muhammad ibn ‘Abd al-Jabber from Muhammad ibn Isma‘il from Ali ibn al-Nu‘man from Suwayd al-Qalla from abu Ayyub from abu Basir from abu Ja‘far ((عليه السلام).) who has said the following. "Allah, the Most Holy, the Most High, has two kinds of knowledge. One kind of knowledge is that which no one knows except He. The other kind is that which He has taught to the His angels and His messengers. Whatever His angels and Messengers have learned we know it."

Salaam Aleikum,

I believe this is enough for us to believe that Imams (عليه السلام) have far greater knowledge comparing to us fallible ones. As how much, only Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) knows.

Exactly this. 

There are certain things the knowledge of which is exclusive to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) - like the timing of the judgement day, the exact timing of the appearance of Imam al-Asr (aj) and some other things.

Salamualaikum Bro,

Alhamdulillah for the sharing of knowledge. May Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) bless you for your efforts. We recognize that knowledge encompasses various dimensions and levels. In this discussion, we have learned from the hadiths that the Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام) possess a multidimensional and the highest level of knowledge attainable by any creation of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى). It is Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) who has created these diverse dimensions and levels of knowledge.

Now, my concern is how we can access the knowledge of the Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام) in order to find guidance on the right path and make it applicable to our daily lives as individuals. The Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام) are our Wali (guardian) and Ulil Amr (those with authority). They can surely guide us in matters of rituals, spirituality, work, science, politics, cosmology, or any other knowledge necessary for our progression in life.

I firmly believe that the Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام) are accessible and can guide us in any field of knowledge that an individual requires on a daily basis. This is why we are informed that the Ahlulbayt (عليه السلام) possess a multidimensional and the highest level of knowledge. We can seek their guidance and rely on them at any given time by the Permission of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).

Wallahulam.
