It's like they're intentionally trying to go after what is sacred. I know they're not but what a terrible trick of the devil to fall into.

Should we believe like Catholics who blindly follow the pope?...or should Shīʿi Muslims be more like forensic investigators who carefully and meticulously follow the path that the evidence leads them to without reservation? I think we should behave more like forensic investigators and archeologists who follow proof...you're right...the devil is lurking behind every corner trying to lead us astray...the secularists, the postmodernists, the Zionists, the Saudis, the Hindutva Movement, the evangelicals, CIA, MI-6 etc. are all attempting to misdirect Muslims...but the well-read Muslim is a lot less likely to be fooled...the passionate, goodhearted blind follower is more likely to suffer from inner conflict or have an existential crisis somewhere down the line because he (she) took the lazy route and didn't do his (her) due diligence...in my experience it's always the mindless traditionalist who falls victim to atheism, assimilation etc....the ones who come through the door emotionally...usually exist the door emotionally...Qurʾān admonishes human beings for not using their mind, intellect and reason and strongly discourages robotically mimicking the masses... Ali (peace be upon him) said, “Verily, truth and falsehood are not known by the statures of men.

There's another concerning trend, and IMO it's much more dangerous than believing that a shrine is a particular person's shrine or something along those lines.

Imam Ali ((عليه السلام)), "forgave" Aisha, so shias should keep their mouths shut against her.

Imam Ali ((عليه السلام)) didn't raise arms against Abu Bakr, Umar, or Uthman, so that must mean that they are not as bad as the Rafidhi's make them out to be, and our sunni brothers are right, and we should repent, and keep our shia brothers from praying for the removal of mercy from these figures, otherwise they may be in trouble in the Hereafter.

These teachings are actually being promoted from the pulpits of so-called scholars on a massive scale, and our youth is being misled.

If there were other alleged daughters or adopted daughters ( none survived ) as the other narrative goes-it has political / religious bases- namely the marriage of one or two to a certain individual who was a high profile figure in the opponents view, even with all his acknowledged shortcomings-  this marriage narrative is positive- for political/religious  reasons. So, they propagate it. 

In any event. As far as me as a person is concerned. 

1) Muhammad Al- Mustafa ( Peace be upon him and his pure Progeny) had one Biological Daughter.(The Martyred Sayyeda Fatima Zahra(sa))

2) There is only one Sayyidat Nisa' al-Alamin (The Martyred Sayyeda Fatima Zahra(sa)).

3) There is only one at the time of the revelation of the Verse of Purification (Verse 33:33 ). (The Martyred Sayyeda Fatima Zahra(sa)).

4) There is only one who is the central figure in the Hadith Al- Kissa ( The Hadith of the Cloak).(The Martyred Sayyeda Fatima Zahra(sa)).

5) There is only one who is part of the Event of al-Mubahala ( Verse 3:61) , (The Martyred Sayyeda Fatima Zahra(sa)).

6) The only one who is referred in Surrah al-Kawthar. (The Martyred Sayyeda Fatima Zahra(sa)).

7) The only one referred as the part of me by Muhammad Al- Mustafa ( Peace be upon him and his pure Progeny), is (The Martyred Sayyeda Fatima Zahra(sa)).

8) The only one who is a infallible role model to the women of the ummah , (The Martyred Sayyeda Fatima Zahra(sa)).

9) The one married to Maula Ali(عليه السلام), (The Martyred Sayyeda Fatima Zahra(sa)).

10) The one who is the source of the infallible Imams(عليه السلام), (The Martyred Sayyeda Fatima Zahra(sa)).

I can go on as a layman but I will stop here due to my lack of knowledge and can't do justice to this topic.

However, the one who is the source of All the Sadaats ( The Sayyids / Sayyeds / Syeds) The progeny of Muhammad Al- Mustafa ( Peace be upon him and his pure Progeny), there are millions of them today As per the Promise in Surah Kawthar. 

So, the question is, why the quest? 

Almost everything here is correct.

As for Surat al-Kawthar, we don't have a single hadith anywhere (strong or weak) that says that Sayyida Fatima (عليه السلام) is al-Kawthar. On the contrary, Shi`a tafasir consistently say that al-Kawthar is a special river in Paradise. The first person that I know of that alluded to al-Kawthar being connected to Sayyida Fatima (عليه السلام) was Sunni scholar Fakhr al-Din al-Razi (d. 1210 AD), who offers this possibility alongside 15 possible meanings to al-Kawthar. One can believe this if they want, but it is not the strongest interpretation, nor does it come from Shiism.

You can read the Context of the Revelation, and the Last Verse . Plus the evidence that supports the meaning ( meaning the millions of them in the world).  There are Apparent and Hidden meanings . 

 

إِنَّا أَعْطَيْنَاكَ الْكَوْثَرَ {1}

[Shakir 108:1] Surely We have given you Kausar,
[Pickthal 108:1] Lo! We have given thee Abundance;
[Yusufali 108:1] To thee have We granted the Fount (of Abundance).

فَصَلِّ لِرَبِّكَ وَانْحَرْ {2}

[Shakir 108:2] Therefore pray to your Lord and make a sacrifice.
[Pickthal 108:2] So pray unto thy Lord, and sacrifice.
[Yusufali 108:2] Therefore to thy Lord turn in Prayer and Sacrifice.

إِنَّ شَانِئَكَ هُوَ الْأَبْتَرُ {3}

[Shakir 108:3] Surely your enemy is the one who shall be without posterity.
[Pickthal 108:3] Lo! it is thy insulter (and not thou) who is without posterity.
[Yusufali 108:3] For he who hateth thee, he will be cut off (from Future Hope).

You can read the Context of the Revelation, and the Last Verse . Plus the evidence that supports the meaning ( meaning the millions of them in the world). 

"

Al-Kawthar (Arabic: کوثر, lit. great good[1]) is a Qur'anic word and one of the epithets of Lady Fatimah (a)[2]. It is a cognate of the Arabic word "kathīr" (کثیر), and has once appeared in the Qur'an 108: 1 (Sura al-Kawthar)[3].

There is controversy among the scholars of the Qur'anic exegesis over what is meant by "al-kawthar"[4]; it is taken to refer to a river or a stream in Heaven, a lot of good, prophecy, the Holy Scripture, the Qur'an, knowledge and wisdom, Kawthar Pond, Shafa'a, and the many companions, followers, and progeny granted by God to the Prophet (s).[5]

According to Fadl b. Hasan al-Tabrisi in Majma' al-bayan, all these probabilities could be right; because the word "kawthar" includes great good in this world as well as hereafter that encompasses all the abovementioned interpretations[6]. Fakhr al-Razi has considered the interpretation of kawthar to a river or a stream in Heaven as mashhur and mustadif[7].

For Shiite scholars of Qur'anic exegesis, "al-kawthar" refers to Lady Fatima al-Zahra (a), since al-'As b. Wa'il called Prophet Muhammad (s) "abtar", that is, a person without a progeny and offspring (since he had no sons). On this occasion, God revealed the verse in response to al-'As b. Wa'il, by saying that He will give the Prophet (s) many children through his daughter, Lady Fatima al-Zahra (a). Al-Kawthar is one of the titles of Lady Fatima (a).[8]

You can feel free to say that you have the hidden meaning, and that meaning may very well be true. But until it is said by an Imam of Ahlul Bayt, then it is just an opinion. Just like how some sahaba had their own opinions, and just like how some Sunni mufasirin like Razi had their views.

It’s strange to me that the 12 Imams and their Shia, and a thousand years of Shia scholarship would miss something like this, yet it became completely sacrosanct in our community.

It has bases maybe not the type of investigation you do, I would ponder and carefully review the Context of the Revelation and the last Verse. The meaning of the word may be many, Consider the meaning in light of the Context and the Last verse. 

Verily We have given thee the Kawthar (Abundance). So pray thou unto thy Lord! And offer sacrifice. Verily, thy enemy shall be the one cut off (in his progeny).' (Qur'an 108:1-3)

Al-Kawthar

According to some Qur'an commentaries (Tafsir), when the Quraysh (tribe) said that the Prophet (sawa) had no offspring, the chapter of al-Kawthar was revealed:

'Verily We have given thee the Kawthar (Abundance). So pray thou unto thy Lord! And offer sacrifice. Verily, thy enemy shall be the one cut off (in his progeny).' (Qur'an 108:1-3)

'We have given you al-Kawthar' means we have given you the abundant good, which shall last throughout your life and after it; therefore, turn your face unto your Lord in prayer, as mention of your name shall never end and your offspring shall never perish; it is those standing against you who are more deserving of this description.

This revelation was given against the backdrop of the pronouncements by some of the Quraysh's most scurrilous men - such as al-'As bin Wa'il, Abu Jahl, 'Uqbah bin Abi Mu'ayt and Ka'b bin al-Ashraf - that the Prophet (sawa) was cut off from male children, after the death of his son al-Qasim. Hence, it is clear that the abundant good - al-Kawthar - was pointing to the abundant offspring which the Prophet (sawa) would have through his daughter Fatimah (عليه السلام), and that this was a reply to those people and their effort to weaken the Prophet's spirits. Supporting our interpretation, al-Tabataba'i, in al-Mizan commentary, said: 'Without that, the words 'Verily, thy enemy shall be the one cut off' would be useless.'

Points Of Interest

1. Lady Fatima And Al-Kawthar

It was said earlier that ‘al-Kawthar’ has a vast, inclusive meaning which is ‘goodness in abundance’ and the examples are many.

A large number of scholars of the Shia school believe that one of the most clear examples of this word is the auspicious existence of Fatima Zahra, because the occasion of the revelation of the verse indicates that the enemies accused the Noble Prophet of being without offspring to which the Qur’an replied:

Surely (Muhammad) We have given you abundance of good (al-Kawthar). (108:1).

From this verse we understand that this ‘abundance of good’ is that very Lady Fatima Zahra’.

In addition, not only is it the physical and biological offspring of the Prophet which will increase, rather it is these abundant number of offspring scattered which continue his religion and are responsible for the preservation of all of the values of Islam and continue to convey it to the future generations!

This is not only limited to the infallible Imams of the Ahlul Bayt who have a literal number that we can enumerate (12), rather it is the thousands and thousands of children of Fatima which have spread around the entire world from whom so many great scholars, scientists, writers, exegetists, jurists, narrators of the Prophet’s sayings and leaders have come from – individuals who have left outstanding works and unmatched fame in this world, and have protected Islam with their selfless giving (of themselves and their efforts) and their hard work and devotions.

Here, we encounter a very interesting discussion from Fakhr ad-Din al-Razi who along with other commentators on ‘al-Kawthar’, says:

The third statement of the meaning of this chapter is that it was revealed to reject those who criticized the Noble Prophet for his lack of progeny.

Therefore the meaning of this chapter is that Allah will give him a generation which will remain throughout all of the ages.

Considering the fact that how many members of the Ahlul Bayt have been martyred, we still see that the world is replete with them, whereas the Umayyads (who were the enemies of Islam) there remains no mentionable figure in the world.

Then, behold and see how many of the great men of leadership such as al-Baqir, as-Sadiq, al-Ridha, and Nafs al-Zakiyyah 9, etc… are found among them (the household)!”10

Explanation: Lady Hazrat Fatimah and Kawthar

It was said earlier that 'Kawthar' has a vast inclusive meaning which is 'goodness in abundance' and the examples are many.

A large number of scholars of the Shi'ah school believe that one of the most clear examples of that word is the auspicious existence of Lady Fatimah Zahra (عليه السلام), because the occasion of the revelation of the verse says that they accused the holy Prophet (S) of being without offspring, but the Qur'an says:

"Surely (O Muhammad) We have given you abundance of good (Kawthar)”.

From this meaning we understand that this 'abundance of good' is the very Lady Fatimah Zahra (عليه السلام) of whom the descendants of the Prophet (S) increased abundantly and thousands and thousands of them scattered in the world preaching his religion and preserving it.

It is a fact that none can correctly count the number of descendants of Hazrat Ali and Fatimah (عليه السلام) who are recognized as the descendants of the holy Prophet (S), among whom so many great scholars, scientists, writers, commentators, jurisprudents, traditionists and splendid leaders left some outstanding works and unmatched fame in this world, and tried to protect Islam with their donations and devotions.

Here, we encounter a very interesting discussion from Fakhr-i-Razi who, along with other commentaries on 'Kawthar', says:

“The third statement is that this Surah has been revealed to reject those who criticized the holy Prophet (S) for his lack of progeny, therefore, the meaning of the Surah is that Allah shall give him a generation which will remain stable through all ages.

And consider this, that although a number of Ahlul-Bait have been martyred, the world is replete with them, where as from the Ummayads (who were the enemies of Islam) there remains no mentionable figure in the world. Then, behold and see how many of the great men of leadership such as Baqir, Sadiq, Rida, and Nafs-i-Zakiyyah7 are found among them, (the household).”8

Fatima Zahra’ In The Noble Qur’an

Naser Makarem Shirazi

Quote

Even the Sunni scholar, Fakhr ad-Din al-Razi has narrated fifteen different narrations on the meaning of ‘al-Kawthar’, however most of them are merely statements of the clear examples of this broad concept, because as was mentioned before, ‘al-Kawthar’ means ‘goodness and blessings in abundance’, and we know that Allah the Grand, granted the Noble Prophet so many blessings such that each of the ones mentioned above is but one clear example of them.

 

Here, we encounter a very interesting discussion from Fakhr ad-Din al-Razi who along with other commentators on ‘al-Kawthar’, says:

The third statement of the meaning of this chapter is that it was revealed to reject those who criticized the Noble Prophet for his lack of progeny.

Therefore the meaning of this chapter is that Allah will give him a generation which will remain throughout all of the ages.

Still waiting for any hadith, in any book, that says that Sayyida Fatima (عليه السلام) is al-Kawthar. Again, I'm not against the possibility, as the Quran can have multiple layers of meaning. But it is an opinion until there is binding proof.

Even Tabarsi's tafsir (12th century) lists many opinions, the 6th one is وقيل: هو كثرة النسل والذرية، وقد ظهرت الكثرة في نسله من ولد فاطمة (ع)، حتى لا يحصى عددهم، واتصل إلى يوم القيامة مددهم - "It is said" (by who? he does not mention) "that [al-Kawthar] is the abundance of progeny and descendants, and that abundance has appeared through the loins of Fatima, to the point where we do not know their number, and they stretch until the Day of Resurrection." This is one of many opinions he provides, but this one he does not provide a source for. And while it mentions Sayyida Fatima (عليه السلام), this is not exactly saying that she is al-Kawthar - it is saying that the abundant number of descendants is al-Kawthar. Close, but not exactly the same thing.

If you keep reading to the end of this section, Tabarsi concludes فقد أعطاه الله، سبحانه وتعالى، الخير الكثير في الدنيا، ووعده الخير الكثير في الآخرة، وجميع هذه الأقوال تفصيل للجملة التي هي الخير الكثير في الدارين. "Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) gave him much goodness in this world, and He promised him much goodness in the Hereafter. All of these opinions are an elaboration that it (al-Kawthar) is much goodness in the two abodes (this world and the hereafter)."

Tadabbur of the Quran is great, but in this example, we've elevated an opinion into an enshrined tafsir that is recited all the time in our community, when there is no proof that the Ahl al-Bayt did this themselves. That's a problem.

Like the grave of Amir al-Mu’mineen, the imams made the grave of Sayyida Fatima known. The fact that it was a secret burial supports the idea that the funeral and burial took place at her home. If she were buried outdoors, people would’ve noticed, especially since the authorities (including `Umar) were known to watch at night. Medina was not a big city at the time - it was about the size of today's Masjid al-Nabawi complex.

So this is sufficient evidence for me. Yes she was buried in secret, but no we have a good idea of where she was laid to rest.

I remember once when my aunt narrated an incident when she went to hajj and ziyarah. When she was in Masjid un nabawi, a caravan of Iranian women started marching towards baqi. Saudis authorities are not able to stop Iranians, so they always visit Jannat ul baqi (unlike others). She thought of getting in that group but was unable to follow as there was a lot of crowd, so she got left behind. She started crying at that moment and saying 'Ya Fatima tuz Zehra'. Suddenly a lady came from behind, held her hand and kept it on a place and indicated that this is what she's looking for (the real grave).

So, honestly I have seen people in India and Pakistan talking about grave of Sayyida in Jannat ul Baqi but I haven't heard any great scholar saying the same.

To the point that if a scholar starts doing what you are doing here, he will be called a muqassir and will be abused and attacked from all sides and will face greater challenges to the point that he may loose any significance in the community.

However, there is a long narration about the event that is colloquially referred to as "Hadith al-Kisa". In some communities, this "Hadith al-Kisa" is recited every Tuesday and Thursday, every mawlid and shahada date, nights of Ramadan, and weddings. This would automatically make it the most recited hadith in the Shi'a community, and recited more than almost any verse in the Quran (with exception to al-Fatiha and al-Ikhlas).

Yes. It is recited in almost every house and I for certain know that it has a broken chain. But the matn Or the content itself is not harmful or deviating from the true belief and this is the reason it continues.

I need your answer on nahj ul balagha sermon 164 where Maala Ali (عليه السلام) actually mentions the relationship of Uthman ibn Afwan with the prophet (S):

https://www.al-islam.org/nahjul-balagha-part-1-sermons/sermon-164-people-are-behind-me

 

Brother, the entire point is that shia community or in general humanity is slowly becoming repulsive about reading books and doing hard work. It's sad. But habits of hard work and detailed reading should not escape from shias (specially) as it is the path of Imam Ali (عليه السلام).
