Imam Ali performed salah without wudu

One of the Aqeedah of the shia about their Imams is that they are infallable, which means free of error, forgetfulness and thought.

But here we have shia hadeeth with Saheeh Sanad that Imam Ali prayed Zuhr Salah without wudhu (he forgot).

[ 10940 ] 9 ـ وبإسناده عن علي بن الحكم ، عن عبد الرحمن العرزمي ، ( عن أبيه ) (1) ، عن أبي عبدالله ( عليه السلام ) قال : صلى علي ( عليه السلام ) بالناس على غير طهر وكانت الظهر ثم دخل ، فخرج مناديه ، أن أمير المؤمنين ( عليه السلام ) صلى على غير طهر فأعيدوا فليبلغ الشاهد الغائب .
(1) ليس في الاستبصار .
ـ التهذيب 3 : 40 | 140 ، والاستبصار 1 : 433 | 1671
كتاب وسائل الشيعة ج8 ص352 ـ ص376373

Abi Abdullah (as) said: Ali (as) was leading Zuhr prayer without wudhu (he forgot). Then they called ‘O People ‘Amir Al-Mumini prayed without Wudhu, redo your prayers and inform those who are not present.

Narrators: Ali bin Al-Hakam is thiqah

Abdur Rahman is thiqah

  1. how can a prayer can be offered without wudhu as its neccessary..

  2. You are a liar , Hazrat ali (a s) is one of the 5 infallible as per aya e tatheer < so either the hadees is wrong or its asnad is wrong or some one has played a trick of mispersonufying or it may happen that maula (a s) had made wazoo somewhere and kept that wazoo , he cannot ignore or forget , if you don't believe in his infailability you may go to hell but can not talk nonsense blasphemy .
