Donkey chain in al-Kafi

In volume 1, page 237 there is this narration:

وروي أن أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام قال: إن ذلك الحمار كلم رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله فقال: بأبي أنت وامي إن أبي حدثنى، عن أبيه، عن جده، عن أبيه أنه كان مع نوح في السفينة فقام إليه نوح فمسح على كفله ثم قال: يخرج من صلب هذا الحمار حمار يركبه سيد النبيين وخاتمهم، فالحمد لله الذي جعلني ذلك الحمار
Translation: Ali bin abi Talib RAA was told that the Prophet’s donkey, Ufair, committed suicide!
So Ali said: That donkey spoke to the Prophet ASWS, he said: You are equal to my father and mother, my father told me, that his father told him, that his grandfather told him, that his father was with Noah ASWS on the arc, so Noah ASWS approached him and wiped over his back and said: from the offspring of this donkey there will come a donkey which will be ridden by the best and final prophet.
Ufair then said: so Alhamdulillah, that He made me this donkey.

Note:Notice how it told the Prophet ASWS: you are equivalent to my father and mother. May Allah SWT save us. This is an expression which Arabs use to tell a person that he is very dear to them. But for the Prophet ASWS to be told that he is equivalent to a “XXX” is blasphemous.

Sunni mock this hadith due to the so called “chain of narration”! donkeys narrating from donkeys PLUS we have shia scholar who blieve in such a narration (whereas no sunni believes in it) here:

this is not just some nobody! this is “3allama al muhajir” one of the TOP scholars in the karbala hawza, especially respected by the shirazi ayatullahs (like sadiq al shirazi). According to this shia scholar EVEYTHING within al kafi is authentic also the 3ufeir hadith where donkeys narrate from donkeys!

And do not forget that some shia grand scholars considered al kafi to be 100% authentic.īī-scholars-and-authenticity-their-texts

Now lets see what shia alim AYATUL’SHAYTAN KHAMINEI’I said about this donkey narration:


هل تجوز الرواية عن الحمير؟ كما ورد في في بعض الكتب والمراجع ما روي عن أمير المؤمنين:- إن غُفيراً -حمار رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله- قال له: بأبي أنت وأمي -يا رسول الله- إن أبي حدثني عن أبيه عن جده عن أبيه: (أنه كان مع نوح في السفينة، فقام إليه نوح فمسح على كفله ثم قال: يخرج من صلب هذا الحمار حمار يركبه سيد النبيين وخاتمهم، فالحمد لله الذي جعلني ذلك الحمار) (أصول الكافي 1/237).
المرجع: سماحة السيد القائد الخامنئي
الغرابة الموجودة في هذه الرواية تنتفي عندما تراجع النصوص القرآنية من كون الحيوانات تتكلم وتتصرف كما في قصة الهدهد والنمل و….
وعلى كل حال لا يوجد في الروايات ما يتنافى مع العقل أو الشرع أو ما يتنافى مع احترام الرسول (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) فلماذا ترفضها.

Question: is it permissible to narrate from Donkeys? as we saw in some of the books regarding Ufayr …(He states the narration)…?

Marji’i: Sayyed al Qa’ed Khaminei’i.

Answer: This narration isn’t weird at all once you read the quranic stories about the Ants and the Bird…
And regardless, There is nothing which contradicts Logic (Aql) or Sharia or hints towards any disrespect for our Prophet PBUH so why refuse it?


BTW the Donkey is a trustworthy Narrator because animals can’t commit Sins like lying.

Oh! I forgot, this moron Khamine’i who is saying it does not contradict LOGIC and Sharia, well when was prophet Noah PBUH alive? So that the donkey could say that his great grandfather was with Noah? wasn’t it hundreds of years? How LONG DOES A DONKEY LIVE ACCORDING TO KHAMINEI’I ?

If we would take into consideration that the average age of an donkey is around 25 and an donkey of 40 years old is regarded as an elderly, also, the oldest donkey alive is just merely 62 (according to English website Donkey Sanctuary), and add to this a fact, that between the Prophet (sallalahu alahi wasalam) and Isaa (alahi salaam) there were 600 years, between Isaa (alahi salaam) and Musa (alaihi salaam) there were 1700 years, between Musa and …. you’ll get the point, we can clearly say: Shia narrator Ufayr was mudalis, because he ommited a huge number from his donkey forefathers. 😛

      No wonder I seen a load of [erased by the Admin] with high turbans walking into the zoo, they were looking for a donkey to narrate their Hadith, or was it a gorilla or a chimpanzee?? Actually it could have been an ape looooolz


    Narrated ‘Amr bin Maimun:
    During the pre-lslamic period of ignorance I saw a she-monkey surrounded by a number of monkeys. They were all stoning it, because it had committed illegal sexual intercourse. I too, stoned it along with them.

    Sunni references:
    Sahih al Bukhari Volume 5, Book 58, Number 188:

    • Shani
