Are all the Companions trustworthy


by Dr. Sa`d ibn `Abdullah Al Humayyid

Question:

How to answer those who say: How could you say that all the Companions are trustworthy and accept all their narrations despite the fact that they commit grievous and minor sins which is something threatens their integrity. The proper thing is not to call them upright or trustworthy until their integrity is confirmed and those whom seem to be corrupt, their integrity shall be questioned?

Answer:

Praise be to Allah and peace be upon the Messenger of Allah. Now coming to the point:

First of all, I advise the questioner and all who read this answer or care for this matter to resort to the writings of scholars. They should not pursuit doubtful matters that come only from unfair people who know that most people do not read or search a lot and that kind of people is easy to mislead. Of those books which I advise you to read are:

(Al Kifayah of Al khatib Al Baghdady), (Minhaj Al Sunnah) by Shaykh Islam Ibn Taymiyah and (Tathir Al Jinan) by Ibn Hajar Al Haytamy. There are some books, letters and researches were issued in the modern age which people should refer to, of which are: (The Sunnah and its status in legislation) by Mustafa Al Siba`y, (Defending the Sunnah of Muhammad Abu Shuhbah), (The authenticity and the status of Sunnah in Islam) by Muhammad Luqman Al Salafy, (the Companions of the Prophet – peace be upon him) by `Ibadah Al Kibisy, (Islam of the end of time), (The acquittal of the Companions from hypocrisy) by Mundhir Al As`ad and (the Messages of justice and equity) by Sa`ud ibn Muhammad Al `Aqily. I only mentioned these references because the questioner will find his need there. It is difficult in such a short answer like this to illustrate the whole matter.

However, I shall summarize the answer in the following points:

(1) There is a difference between those who discuss this issue, thinking badly in those noble Companions because of well-known ideologies and beliefs and those who revere and respect the Companions because of their noble attitudes in supporting the religion, defending it, observing patience in bearing the harm and sacrificing their souls and monies for its sake. Did not you see how did `Urwah ibn Mas`ud Ath-Thaqafy praised the Companions in the treaty of Al Hudaybiyah when he went back to his people saying:”O my people, By Allah! I have met kings such as Caesar, Chosroes and the Negus, but I did not see a king who is respected by his Companions as the Companions of Muhammad respect him (peace be upon him). By Allah, if he never spat phlegm but one of his Companions would take it by hand and rubs his face and skin with it. When he commands them, they quickly respond to his command. When he performs ablution, they are about to kill one another to use the water of his ablution. When they speak before him, they lower their voices and never stare at him out of reverence. Al Bukhari (2731 – 2732).

(2) Reflect on Allah’s saying: “Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the Messenger of Allâh. And those who are with him are severe against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and falling down prostrate (in prayer), seeking Bounty from Allâh and (His) Good Pleasure. The mark of them (i.e. of their Faith) is on their faces (foreheads) from the traces of prostration (during prayers). This is their description in the Taurât (Torah). But their description in the Injeel (Gospel) is like a (sown) seed which sends forth its shoot, then makes it strong, and becomes thick and it stands straight on its stem, delighting the sowers, that He may enrage the disbelievers with them. Allâh has promised those among them who believe (i.e. all those who follow Islâmic Monotheism, the religion of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him till the Day of Resurrection) and do righteous good deeds, forgiveness and a mighty reward (i.e. Paradise).” [Surat Al Fath: 29].

And Allah’s saying: “O Prophet (Muhammad peace be upon him)! Allâh is Sufficient for you and for the believers who follow you.” [Al Anfal: 62 – 63].

And His saying: “You [true believers in Islâmic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and his Sunnah] are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al Ma‘rûf (i.e. Islâmic Monotheism and all that Islâm has ordained) and forbid Al Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islâm has forbidden), and you believe in Allâh. And had the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) believed, it would have been better for them; among them are some who have faith, but most of them are Al Fâsiqûn (disobedient to Allâh and rebellious against Allâh’s Command).” [Al-`Imran: 110].

And His saying: “Thus We have made you [true Muslims – real believers of Islâmic Monotheism, true followers of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and his Sunnah (legal ways)], a just (and the best) nation, that you be witnesses over mankind and the Messenger (Muhammad peace be upon him) be a witness over you. And We made the Qiblah (prayer direction towards Jerusalem) which you used to face, only to test those who followed the Messenger (Muhammad peace be upon him) from those who would turn on their heels (i.e. disobey the Messenger). Indeed it was great (heavy) except for those whom Allâh guided. And Allâh would never make your faith (prayers) to be lost (i.e. your prayers offered towards Jerusalem). Truly, Allâh is full of Kindness, Most Merciful towards mankind.” [Al Baqarah: 143].

See how Allah describes them as trustworthy.

If you can not understand the generality, see this Ayah: “Allâh has forgiven the Prophet (peace be upon him), the Muhâjirûn (Muslim emigrants who left their homes and came to Al Madinah) and the Ansâr (Muslims of Al Madinah) who followed him (Muhammad peace be upon him) in the time of distress (Tabûk expedition), after the hearts of a party of them had nearly deviated (from the Right Path), but He accepted their repentance. Certainly, He is to them full of Kindness, Most Merciful.” [Al Tawbah: 117].

This Ayah was revealed after the Battle of Tabuk at the end of his life (peace be upon him).

Allah (may He be Exalted) says: “Indeed, Allâh was pleased with the believers when they gave the Bai‘ah (pledge) to you (O Muhammad peace be upon him) under the tree: He knew what was in their hearts, and He sent down As-Sakînah (calmness and tranquillity) upon them, and He rewarded them with a near victory, And abundant spoils that they will capture. And Allâh is Ever All-Mighty, All-Wise.” [Al Fath: 18 – 19].

This is a great favor for the people of Al Ridwan Pledge.

Allah (may He be Exalted) says: “And the foremost to embrace Islâm of the Muhâjirûn (those who migrated from Makkah to Al Madinah) and the Ansâr (the citizens of Al Madinah who helped and gave aid to the Muhâjirûn) and also those who followed them exactly (in Faith). Allâh is well-pleased with them as they are well-pleased with Him. He has prepared for them Gardens under which rivers flow (Paradise), to dwell therein forever. That is the supreme success.” [At-Tawbah: 100].

This is a clear text in praising the majority of the immigrants, the Supporters and those who followed them righteously.

Allah (may He be Exalted) says: “(And there is also a share in this booty) for the poor emigrants, who were expelled from their homes and their property, seeking Bounties from Allâh and to please Him, and helping Allâh (i.e. helping His religion) and His Messenger (Muhammad peace be upon him). Such are indeed the truthful (to what they say).” [Surat Al Hashr: 8 – 9].

Think about the following Ayah: “And those who came after them say: “Our Lord! Forgive us and our brethren who have preceded us in Faith, and put not in our hearts any hatred against those who have believed. Our Lord! You are indeed full of kindness, Most Merciful.” [Al Hashr: 10].

Allah (may He be Exalted) says: “And what is the matter with you that you spend not in the Cause of Allâh? And to Allâh belongs the heritage of the heavens and the earth. Not equal among you are those who spent and fought before the conquering (of Makkah, with those among you who did so later). Such are higher in degree than those who spent and fought afterwards. But to all Allâh has promised the best (reward). And Allâh is Well-Acquainted with what you do.” [Al Hadid: 10].

So, how will be the number of those Companions whom Allah has praised in the Ayah? Who will be left? Are they the people who spent after the conquest and fought? Allah (may He be Exalted) says: “But to all Allâh has promised the best (reward).”

(3) If the meaning of this doubt is to exclude the Umayyid from this honor, then who can exclude `Uthman (may Allah be pleased with him)? Do not they mix things together?

As for Mu`awiyah and `Amr ibn Al `As (may Allah be pleased with them), did not the Prophet (peace be upon him) know their status when he appointed `Amr as an emir to the Army of Dhat Al Salasil which included Abu Bakr and `Umar (may Allah be pleased with them) [Al Bukhari (3662) and Muslim (2384)]? Is not he one of those who embraced Islam willingly and migrated before the conquest of Makkah? What is the intention of those people?

Likewise, Mu`awiyah ibn (may Allah be pleased with him) and how did the Prophet (peace be upon him) entrusted him with writing the revelation if he is not trustworthy? How did `Umar ibn Al Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him) trusted him and appointed him as an emir to the army of the Levant while we know how `Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) was precise in choosing his emirs to the extent that he relieved Sa`d ibn Abu Waqqas (may Allah be pleased with him) of duty? How did the rest of the Companions keep silent about this if he is not a trustworthy person? How did some of the Companions such as Ibn `Abbas and others speak in his favor? Why did not his opponents such as Imam `Aly (may Allah be pleased with him) and those who were with him accuse him if he is not trustworthy? How did Al Hasan ibn `Aly (may Allah be pleased with him) abdicate Caliphate to him in spite of his large number of follower if he was not trustworthy? How did the rest of the Companions accept that?

(4) If you satisfied with the immigrants, the Supports, the people of Al Ridwan Pledge and the `Aqabah Pledge and those who embraced Islam before the Conquest who spent their money and fought, believing that Mu`awiyah and `Amr ibn Al `As (may Allah be pleased with them) are trustworthy, who would be left? Let us confine the question to the following: Has the Companionship of so and so been confirmed?

(5) The meaning of the Companions’ trustworthiness is not protecting them against mistake, forgetfulness, crimes and sins. Inviolability was not confirmed for anyone other than prophets (peace be upon them). Their trustworthiness means their acquittal of hypocrisy, their true love for Allah and His Messenger and they do not deliberately lie against the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him).

Shaykh of Islam Ibn Taymiyah says in (Minhaj Al Sunnah) (1/306 – 307): “The Companions may do slight mistakes, sometimes they commit sins and they are not infallible but they do not lie deliberately against the Prophet (peace be upon him) and if anyone does, Allah reveals their plot.”

The proof on that is: what has been reported in Sahih Al Bukhari (6780) in story of the man who was brought several times while he is drunk to be whipped. When one of the Companions cursed him, the Prophet (peace be upon him) forbade him and said: “Do not curse him, by Allah, I know that he loves Allah and His Messenger.”

The story of Hatib ibn Abu Balta`ah which has been related in “Sahih Al Bukhari” (4890) and Muslim (2494)] is well-known. He was accused of spying on Muslims but the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: he is not a disbeliever. He said: “perhaps Allah looked upon the Badr warriors and said: “Do whatever you like, for I have ordained that you will be in Paradise.”

(6) The one who is following the biography of the Companions (may Allah be pleased with them) finds that the Companions who committed sins are few and they were not found guilty of the crime against some of those few Companions. Those who were found guilty with the crimes, will not affect the case we are talking about because the objective is to protect the Sunnah by protecting its conveyers and reporters. Those who are just will find that the Companions (may Allah be pleased with them) did not commit something of what we have mentioned but this was reported from people whose companionship is questioned such as Al Walid ibn `Uqbah. However, their narrations were not known after the Prophet’s death. As during his lifetime, they sometimes did something in favor of the legislation as it is known.

Al Alusy (may Allah be merciful with him) says in (Al Ajwibah Al-`Iraqiyyah) (p. 23 – 24) “The trustworthiness of all the Companions (may Allah be pleased with them) does not mean that they did not commit sins but they committed minor sins..” until he said: “it is important to denote that those who committed sins and were punished for that are few. They should not be mixed with the thousands of Companions who did not commit any major sins and Allah has protected them against sins whether minor or major and history is a witness to that.”

Al Ghazaly says in (Al Mustasfa) (p. 189 – 190): “The opinion of the Predecessors and those who followed them is: Their trustworthiness is well-known because Allah (may He be Glorified and Exalted) has praised them in His Book. So, it is our belief except there is hard evidence that one of them has committed a major sin deliberately. It is the matter which can not be proven.

(7) The meaning of Al Mufassiqat which we are talking about is: things that drive them away from faith except the Trial which they have been through.

However, the killing of a Muslim drives a person away from faith, but if it has been done based on interpretations is not included in here. There are many proofs to this, of which are:

Allah’s saying: “And if two parties or groups among the believers fall to fighting, then make peace between them both.” [Al Hujurat: 10]. Thus, Allah describes them with as being faithful despite fighting one another.

Al Bukhari (2704) has reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said about Al Hasan ibn `Ali (may Allah be pleased with him): “This son of mine is a Saiyid (i.e. chief) and I hope that Allah will help him bring about reconciliation between two Muslim groups.”

Therefore, Ahl-ul-Sunnah (the people of the Sunnah) had excused both sects and had good relations with them even though one of them was closer to the truth that the other.

(8) There is no doubt that the Qur’an can not be applied away form the Sunnah. The Sunnah is not authentically proven except by the way of the people of Hadith. The most important factor of judging the Hadith is the chain of transmission; the Companions (may Allah be pleased with them). Therefore, Abu Zar`ah Al Razy (may Allah be merciful with him) said: “If you see a person underestimate one of the Prophet’s Companions, let it be known that he is a disbeliever because the Messenger (peace be upon him) is truthful and the Qur’an is truthful and the people who conveyed this Qur’an and the Sunnah to us are the Companions of the Prophet (peace be upon him). They only want to dispraise our trustworthy narrators to nullify the Qur’an and the Sunnah, whereas dispraising those people is more entitled because they are disbelievers.” Reported by Al Khatib Al Baghdady in (Al Kifayah) (p. 66 – 67). He said before this statement: “If there is nothing was reported from Allah (may He be Glorified and Exalted) or His Messenger in regard of the Companions, we would describe them as trustworthy because of their migration, Jihad, support, sacrificing monies and souls , killing of unbeliever fathers and children, advising one another regarding religion and the strong faith and certainty. They are surely trustworthy and they are better than anyone comes after them.

(9) We have a question to ask those claimers which is: In your opinion, what is their alternative?

A- Should Islam be understood only from the Qur’an? So, tell me who conveyed the Qur’an to us? Who has collected it? Can we estimate Islam only through the Qur’an? What should we do with the multiple Ayahs denoting the obligation of acting according to the Sunnah such as Allah’s saying: “And whatsoever the Messenger (Muhammad peace be upon him) gives you, take it; and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it).” [Al Hashr: 7]. And Allah’s saying: “that you may explain clearly to men what is sent down to them, and that they may give thought.” [Al Nahl: 44].

B- Do you see that we should take the Sunnah only from certain group of Companions without the other? Could you name them for us and state your attitude toward the rest of them and you will see whose claim is the weaker. Peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad.

Fatima is a name of Allah


One of the biggest Maharaja’s aka Marjas in the Shia world, the Qom based “Ayatollah” Wahid Al-Khorassani says that FATIMAH is one of the ASMA Allah AL-HUSNAH (beautiful names of Allah!):

We already know that according to Rafidism, RAMADHAN is a name of Allah, but FATIMA?

Now Shias can say: La ilaha illah Fatimah … Najis Majoos.

Shia women & mourning [matam]


These days we see, on ashura [10th muharram], shia women go to imam baada’s etc. especially for mourning [matam]. & i believe hardly any shia women stay in house these days i.e. restrict herself from going to imam baada’s.! & ofcourse na-mahram women & men got good opportunities to touch each other & it is very common practice, like here:

& especial women  are hired for noha’s & matam’s in shiaism:

Here are few shia hadiths on matam [mourning] for shia women:

يا على: من اطاع امرأته اكبه الله عزوجل على وجه في النار، فقال على عليه السلام: وما تلك الطاعة؟ قال: يأذن لها في الذهاب إلى الحمامات والعرسات والنائحات، ولبس الثياب الرقاق

(The Prophet(PBUH) said) O Ali(as): “Whoever obeys his woman Allah(swt) would throw him upon his face in the fire.So Imam Ali(as) said:”And what(kind of) obedience to her(wife)? (Prophet(PBUH)) said:”He gives permission for her in going to bath houses, and weddings/celebrations, and mournings, and wearing the transparent clothes.”

عقوبة من أطاع امرأته في أربعة أشياء

4-2 حدثنا أبوالحسين محمد بن علي بن الشاه قال: حدثنا أبوحامد أحمد بن محمد بن الحسين قال: حدثنا أبويزيد أحمد بن خالد الخالدي قال: حدثنا محمد بن أحمد بن صالح التميمي قال: حدثنا أبي قال: حدثنا أنس بن محمد أبومالك، عن أبيه، عن جعفر بن محمد، عن أبيه، عن جده، عن علي بن أبي طالب عليهم السلام، عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله أنه قال في وصيته له: يا علي من أطاع امرأته أكبه الله على وجهه في النار، فقال علي عليه السلام: وما تلك الطاعة؟ قال: يأذن لها في الذهاب إلى الحمامات والعرسات والنياحات، ولبس الثياب الرقاق.

4-3 حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال: حدثنا محمد بن يحيى العطار، عن محمد بن أحمد، عن العباس بن معروف، عن أبي همام إسماعيل بن همام عن محمد بن سعيد ابن غزوان، عن السكوني، عن جعفر بن محمد، عن أبيه، عن آبائه، عن علي عليهم السلام قال: من أطاع امرأته في أربعة أشياء أكبه الله على منخريه في النار قيل: وما هي؟ قال: في الثياب الرقاق والحمامات والعرسات والنياحات.

THE PUNISHMENT OF THOSE WHO OBEY THEIR WIVES IN FOUR ISSUES

4-2 Abul Hussein Muhammad ibn Ali ibn ash-Shah narrated that Abu Hamid Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn al-Hussein quoted on the authority of Abu Yazid Ahmad ibn Khalid al-Khalidy, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Ahmad ibn Salih al-Tamimy, on the authority of his father, on the authority of Anas ibn Muhammad Abu Malik, on the authority of his father, on the authority of Ja’far ibn Muhammad (MGB), on the authority of his father (MGB), on the authority of his grandfather (MGB), on the authority of Ali ibn Abi Talib (MGB) that in his will God’s Prophet (MGB) told him, “O Ali! God will throw those who obey their wives face down into the Fire of Hell.” Ali (MGB) asked, “What is meant by that obedience?The Prophet (MGB) replied, “(That obedience is) to permit one’s wife to go to public baths, wedding parties, mourning ceremonies, and wear transparent clothes.”

4-3 (The compiler of the book narrated) that his father – may God be pleased with him – narrated that Muhammad ibn Yahya al-Attar quoted Muhammad ibn Ahmad, on the authority of Al-Abbas ibn Ma’ruf, on the authority of Abi Himmam – Isma’il ibn Himmam, on the authority of Muhammad ibn Sa’id ibn Qazvan, on the authority of Al-Sakoony, on the authority of Ja’far ibn Muhammad as-Sadiq (MGB), on the authority of his father (MGB)[330] , on the authority of his forefathers (MGB), on the authority of Ali (MGB), “God will throw whoever obeys his wife regarding four issues into the Fire..” He (MGB) was asked, “What are they?” The Imam (MGB) replied, “Regarding wearing transparent clothes, going to public baths, attending wedding parties and going to mourning ceremonies.”

Aisha(ra)’s betrayal: between impossibility and reality


It seems Ayatullah al-‘Allamah Muhammad Jamil Humoud al-‘Amili (FB) was busy these past couple of days, what is it that kept him busy? His new retarded book called “Khiyanat ‘Aisha” so let me post a few pages from this book and translate some of its contents which are underlined in Red:

^ Mashallah look at this cover, with a bloody Photoshoped camel… this book has become so famous among the enemies of Allah especially our Coptic christian friends who thank this brave follower of Ahlul-Bayt for insulting the wife of his prophet SAWS.

Christian forums

Now on to the contents of this toilet paper roll.

(Page 47)

Translation: The saying of ‘Aisha: “Maybe we could hunt with it some of the boys of Quraysh” this has in it a sign that she used to lead in harlotry (prostitution) in Mecca as is apparent when she abandoned Madinah during the days of ‘Uthman bin ‘Affan, so she resided in Mecca for about two years and this accusation is not far from her

(Page 49)

Translation: If she was so daring in sexual affairs then why would we ignore the possibility of her committing obscene acts after the death of Rassul-Allah knowing that she was accused of it during his life!!?
.
.
Alas it remains only a strong possibility and a witness which backs all the narrations that state that she practiced acts of lewdness

(Page 99)

Translation: So we conclude from all we stated: That ‘Aisha is a traitor to the greatest Prophet in his Religion and his Bed.. this is what we reached after our research and effort in understanding the treachery that was mentioned in Surat al-Tahrim an the narrations which talk about ‘Aisha and Hafsa and al-‘Amiriyah and al-Kindiyah…

Aisha(ra) is in Paradise according to Prophet(pbuh), Supporters of Ali(ra), Major Bani Hashim(ra) figures


The Prophet (pbuh) on Aaishah (ra):

From ‘Abdurrahman Ibn Ka’b Ibn Malik who narrated from ‘Aaishah (ra):’ I said : O Messenger of Allah, which of your wives will be in Paradise? He (pbuh) said: ‘ As for you, then you are among them.

Source: Mustadrak Al-Hakim (4/13), and he authenticated it. Al-Dhahabi agreed with him

Ali (ra) on Aaishah (ra):

عن عاصم بن كليب عن أبيه قال انتهينا إلى علي رضي الله عنه فذكر عائشة فقال خليلة رسول الله هذا حديث حسن ومصعب فصالح لا بأس به وهذا يقوله أمير المؤمنين في حق عائشة مع ما وقع بينهما فرضي الله

From ‘Asim Ibn Kulayb, from his father who said:”We went to ‘Ali (ra) and ‘Aaishah was mentioned. So he [‘Ali] said:“The Khaleelah (the most beloved female) of the Messenger of Allah (pbuh)”[Hadith Hassan, Dhahabi said it’s chain is authentic]

The Supporters of Ali (ra) on Aaishah (ra):

From Arib Ibn Hamid who said: ‘On the day of the camel, Ammar [Ibn Yassir] saw a congregation, so he asked: ‘What is this?’So it was said to him: ‘A man who curses Aaishah and reviles her.’ So he -‘Ammar’ went to him and said: ‘Shut up ! You are rebuked and you are refuted ! Do you revile the Habibah (the beloved one) of the Prophet (pbuh) ? Indeed she is his wife in Paradise.’

Al−Hasan bin `Ali was at the top of the pulpit and `Ammar was below Al−Hasan. We all gathered before him. I heard `Ammar saying, `Aisha has moved to Al−Busra. By Allah! She is the wife of your Prophet in this world and in the Hereafter. But Allah has put you to test whether you obey Him or her (`Aisha).]

Abdullah Ibn Abbas from the Ahl Al-Bayt رضي الله عنهم on Aaishah (ra):

1. From ‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Ubayd who said: ‘Ibn Abbas sought permission to enter upon Aaishah during her sickness which she died from. So she refused. And he continued to persistand seek permission until she agreed for him to enter. He entered and heard her saying:’I seek refuge by Allah from the fire.’He – Ibn Abbas – said: ‘ O Mother of the Believers, indeed Allah, the Most Glorious, The Most Mighty has exempted you from the fire. You are the first women whose excuse was revealed from the heavens.’

2. From Ibn Abi Mulaykah, from Dhakwaan the servant of ‘Aaishah (ra) who said that Ibn ‘Abbas (ra) sought permission from ‘Aaishah (ra) to enter while she was at the brink of her death and in her company was her nephew ‘Abdullah Ibn ‘Abdurrahman.

So he (her nephew) said: ‘ Here is Ibn ‘Abbas seeking permission from you and he is from the best of your children.’

So she (‘Aaishah) said: ‘ Leave me off from Ibn ‘Abbas and his praising.’

So he (the nephew) said: ‘He is a Qaari (proficent recitor) of the book of Allah, and he is a Jurist in the religion of Allah, so permit him so that he can greet you and he can saygoodbye to you.’

So she (‘Aaisha) said: ‘Then let him in if you wish.’

The narrator said :’So he permitted him, And Ibn ‘Abbas entered and gave the Salaam (greetings) and then sat. Then he (Ibn ‘Abbas) said:’O Mother of the Believers, have glad tidings for by Allah the only thing that is between you and the removal of all difficulties and hardships from you, and your meeting with Muhammad and his companions, [the only thing between you and that] is just your soul leaving your body.’

So she (‘Aaishah) said: ‘And what else?’

So he (Ibn ‘Abbas) said: You were the most loved of all the wives of the Prophet (pbuh) to him and he never loved anything except that which is pure and good. And Allah revealed your clearance of sins from above the seven heavens, thus there is no Masjid on the earth except that that [revelation] is recited in the length of the nights and days. And your necklace was lost in the night of Abwaa, so the Prophet (pbuh) and his Companions looked for it until they stopped and then they discovered they had no water [for ablution], so Allah revealed :

“… And if you find no water, then perform Tayammum with clean soil and rub your faces and your hands therewith.” [Quran 4:43].’

So in that was a permission to all the general people in the whole Ummah, just because of you.

So, by Allah, indeed you are blessed.’

She (‘Aaishah) said:” O Ibn ‘Abbas, leave me off from this [praising]. For by Allah, I wish that I was one of those forgotten and unknown.’
Source: No. 1639, Fadha’il Al-Sahabah by Imam Ahmad (rah) with the checking of Shaykh Al-Muhaddith Wasiyullah al-‘Abbas Al-Hindi who said it is Sahih.

Narrated Ibn Abu Mulaika:

Ibn ‘Abbas asked permission to visit Aisha before her death, and at that time she was in a state of agony (the Arabic word used is Maghlouba).

She then said: “I am afraid that he [came here to] praise me“.

It was said to her: “He is the cousin of Allah’s Apostle and one of the prominent Muslims” Then she said: “Allow him to enter.”

[When he entered] he said: “How are you?

She replied: “I am Alright if I fear (Allah) (the Arabic is Bekhayr in Itaqayt)

Ibn Abbas said, “Then you are Alright by the Will of Allah, you are the wife of Allah’s Apostle and he did not marry any virgin except you and proof of your innocence was revealed from the Heaven Later on Ibn Az-Zubair entered after him and ‘Aisha said to him, “Ibn ‘Abbas came to me and praised me greatly, but I wish that I was a thing forgotten and out of sight.

In the narration in Musnad Al-Imam Ahmad, authenticated by Shaykh Ahmad Shakir, it states: He said: Ibn Abbas asked permission to visit her as she was dying. [She did not wish to allow him at first, so] she was told: O Mother, Verily, Ibn Abbas is one of your righteous sons, and came to greet you and (give you farewell?). So she said: Then allow him if you wish.
Ibn Abbas [May Allah be pleased with him] was allowed to enter. He said: Glad-tidings my mother, the only thing between you and meeting Muhammad Prayers and Peace of Allah upon him, and the loved ones [in another narration it adds ‘and for that tiredness and aching to go away’] is for your soul to leave your body. You were his most beloved wife, and verily he did not love except that which is pleasant and righteous … he mentions many other of her virtues, and adds that her innocence had been proclaimed in the Quran, so you would not find a Masjid were Allah is being mentioned except that these verses would be recited day and night.

She said: Leave me alone O Ibn Abbas, By [Allah] who my soul is in His Hands, I wish I was something forgotten.

Shia imams are 13 not 12!!


Lets first see Shia sheikh Al-Tusi decides to reduce the number of Imams to satisfy his Aqeedah i.e. A forgery by shia sheikh al-Taefa

The saying that the number of Imams is thirteen and not twelve poses a threat to the Twelver Shia Madhab and a good number of these narrations can be found in the book of Salim bin Qays and al-Kafi by Kulayni, this lead some of the Shia scholars to reject the entire book because of such narrations and here is what al-Helli says about Salim Ibn Qays in Khulasat al-Aqwal page 161:

وقد ذكر له ابن عقدة في رجال أمير المؤمنين (ع) أحاديث عنه والكتاب موضوع لا مرية فيه وعلى ذلك علامات تدل على ما ذكرنا : منها ما ذكر ان محمد بن أبي بكر وعظ أباه عند الموت ومنها ان الأئمة ثلاثة عشر وغير ذلك

“Ibn ‘Uqdah has mentioned in Rijal Ameer al-Mumineen (a) narrations from him and the book is clearly a fabrication and there are signs which point to this such as: Muhammad bin Abu Bakr giving advice to his father on his deathbed, also that the number of Imams is thirteen among other things.”

It is clear by studying history that many Shia sects believed in different numbers for the Imams and some believed that the number was thirteen and not twelve and in our modern days this saying has become quite clear as some still follow it like the Shia of Ahmad al-Hassan al-Yamani.

For this reason the Shia scholar and shekh al-taefa al-Tusi decided to change the narrations to suit his needs although he was caught in the act.

First of all the main text of the narration from al-Kafi by al-Kulayni:

عن أبي الجارود عن أبي جعفر ع قال : قال رسول الله ص : إني واثني عشر من ولدي وأنت يا علي زر الأرض يعني أوتادها وجبالها بنا أوتد الله الأرض ان تسيخ باهلها فإذا ذهب الأثنا عشر من ولدي ساخت الأرض باهلها ولم ينظروا

al-Kulayni narrated with its Isnad: Muhammad bin Yahya from Muhammad bin Ahmad from Muhammad bin al-Hussein from abu Sa’eed al-‘Usfouri from ‘Amr bin Thabit from abu al-Jaroud from Imam Abu Ja’afar (as): The Prophet SAWS said: “Me and twelve from my children and you O ‘Ali are the pillars and mountains of the earth, with us Allah holds the earth from shaking with its inhabitants, so if the twelve from my children are gone then it will shake with its people.

Scanned sources from al-Shafi fi Sharh Usool al-Kafi by al-Muzaffar and Miraat al-‘Uqool by al-Majlisi:

Now the corrupt narration by al-Tusi in his Ghaybah:

عن أبي الجارود عن أبي جعفر ع قال : قال رسول الله ص : إني وأحد عشر من ولدي وأنت يا علي زر الأرض _ أعني أوتادها جبالها _ بنا وتد الله الأرض ان تسيخ باهلها فإذا ذهب الأثنا عشر من ولدي ساخت الأرض باهلها ولم ينظروا

And with this Isnad from Muhammad bin ‘Abdullah bin Ja’afar from his father from Muhammad bin Ahmad bin Yahya [from Muhammad bin al-Hussein from Abu Sa’eed al-‘Usfouri] from ‘Amr bin Thabit from abu al-Jaroud from Imam abu Ja’afar (as): “Me and eleven from my children and you O ‘Ali are the pillars and mountains of the earth, with us Allah holds the earth from shaking with its inhabitants, so if the twelve from my children are gone then it will shake with its people.

Notice how al-Tusi when faced with this problem simply changed the number of Imams to suit his Madhab.

Some people might try to defend al-Tusi by saying that he did not take this narration from al-Kulayni’s Kafi instead he took it directly from the Asl ‘Ubad al-‘Usfouri which is one of the main sixteen Usool of the Shia Muhadditheen, we say fine let’s look at the narration of al-‘Usfouri from the book of sixteen Uool called “al-Usool al-Sitta-‘Ashar” which can be found here: Book of sixteen Usool

‘Ubad’s narration:

عباد عن عمرو عن ابى الجارود عن ابى جعفر ع قال قال رسول الله ص انى واحد عشر من ولدى وانت يا على زر الارض اعني اوتادها جبالها و وقال وتد الله الارض ان تسيخ باهلها فإذا ذهب الاحد عشر من ولدى ساخت الارض باهلها ولم ينظروا

Head of the narration: “Me and eleven of my children and you O ‘Ali”

Tail of the narration: “So if the eleven from my children are gone”

Tusi’s narration:

عن أبي الجارود عن أبي جعفر ع قال : قال رسول الله ص : إني وأحد عشر من ولدي وأنت يا علي زر الأرض _ أعني أوتادها جبالها _ بنا وتد الله الأرض ان تسيخ باهلها فإذا ذهب الأثنا عشر من ولدي ساخت الأرض باهلها ولم ينظروا

Head of the narration: “Me and eleven of my children and you O ‘Ali”

Tail of the narration: “So if the twelve from my children are gone”

Comment: This shows that al-Tusi did not take the Hadith from the Asl of ‘Ubad al-‘Usfouri because if he did he wouldn’t even be faced with this problem in the first place, instead he took it from al-Kulayni’s Kafi with his Isnad and forgot to change the tail of the narration by keeping the number “Twelve”.

Other hadiths as well which shows shia imams as 13:

1. محمد بن وهبان عن داود بن هيثم عن جده عن إسحاق بن بهلول عن أبيه عن طلحة بن زيد عن الزبير بن عطا عن عمير بن هاني عن جنادة بن أبي امية قال : قال الحسن بن علي صلوات الله عليهما : والله لقد عهد إلينا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله أن هذا الامر يملكه اثنا عشر إماما من ولد علي وفاطمة ، مامنا إلا مسموم أو مقتول

Hasan bin Ali said : By God, the Prophet (s) had promised us that this matter will remain in 12 Imams who will be from the children from Ali and Fatima , they will die as a result of being poisoned or getting killed.

2. محمد بن يحيى، عن محمد بن الحسين، عن ابن محبوب، عن أبي الجارود، عن أبي جعفر (عليه السلام) عن جابر بن عبدالله الانصاري قال: دخلت على فاطمة (عليها السلام) وبين يديها لوح فيه أسماء الاوصياء من ولدها، فعددت اثني عشر آخرهم القائم (عليه السلام)، ثلاثة منهم محمد وثلاثة منهم علي

Imam Jafar narrates from Jabir bin Abdullah ansari that he said : I came to Fatima (a.s) and in between her hands was a tablet, in which were written the names of awsiya from her children, I counted that they were twelve, the last one being Imam Qaim (a.s) , three were Muhammand, and three were Ali.

Source: Al Kafi

3. There is another narration in Kafi, Ali (ra) was having a discussion with a Jew, and the Jew asked him about Imams in this ummah, so Ali said:

فقال له أمير المؤمنين (عليه السلام) إن لهذه الامة اثني عشر إمام هدى من ذرية نبيها

For this ummah will be twelve Imams, from the progeny of Prophet (s).

12 from progeny + imam ali = 13!! 😉

Now here are more hadith supporting the format of 13 imams:

Shia and fasting on the day of Arafah


This is not new in shia: THEY ALWAYS LOVE, NOT TO FAST FOR THE SAKE OF ALLAH & THEY PLAY GAMES WITH ALLAH’S ORDER.

for eg: see here

Now let’s see what the divinely guided saintly infallible Imams are afraid of & what type of excuses he had.

We read in Man la Yahduruhu al-Faqih volume 2 Page 88 Hadith # 1811 under the chapter of voluntary fasting and its rewards:

وعنه عن عمرو بن عثمان عن حنان بن سدير عن أبيهعن ابي جعفر عليه السلام قال: سألته عن صوم يوم عرفة فقلتجعلت فداك انهم يزعمون انه يعدل صوم سنة .قال: كان ابي عليه السلام لا يصومه .قلت: ولم ذاك ؟قال: ان يوم عرفة يوم دعاء ومسألة واتخوف ان يضعفني عنالدعاء واكره ان اصومه , واتخوف ان يكون عرفة يوم اضحى فليس بيوم صوم . قال مصنف هذا الكتاب رحمه الله -: إن العامة غير موفقين لفطر ولا أضحى و إنما كره عليه السلام صوم يوم عرفة لانه كان يكون يوم العيد في أكثر السنين(2) و تصديق ذلك:
1812 – ما قاله الصادق عليه السلام: ” لما قتل الحسين بن علي عليهما السلام أمر الله عزوجل ملكا فنادى أيتها الامة الظالمة القاتلة عترة نبيها لا وفقكم الله تعالى لصوم و لافطر (2) قال سلطان العلماء: ” الاشتباه وقع بين عرفة والعيد غضبا من الله تعالى على العامة وأكثر أيام عرفتهم يوم العيد في الواقع فافطر عليه السلام يوم عيدهم هربا من صوم العيد الواقعى وذلك لا ينافى استحباب صوم يوم عرفة الواقعى”. تهذيب الأحكام لشيخ الطائفة 4 / 299

1811 – Also from him, from ‘Amro bin ‘Uthman, from Hannan bin Sadeer, from his father, from Imam abu Ja’afar (as): I asked him about fasting the day of ‘Arafah: “May I be a sacrifice for you, they claim that fasting ‘Arafah is equal to fasting an entire year.” He said: “My father never fasted it.I said: “Why is that?” He said: “The day of ‘Arafah is a day of Du’ah(supplication) and a day of asking Allah for your needs and I Fear that if I fast then I would be too weak to make Du’ah so I hate to fast it, also I Fear that the day of ‘Arafah would be the day of ‘Eid al-Adha so it wouldn’t be acceptable to fast on it.

The compiler of this book may Allah have mercy on him said: The Sunnies are not able to know the day of Fitr or the day of Adha and he (as) hates fasting on this day of ‘Arafah because it was the day of ‘Eid in most years (2) and we read:

al-Sadiq (as) says: “When al-Hussein bin ‘Ali (as) was killed Allah ordered an Angel to shout: O you nation of oppressors and murderers of the family of the Prophet, may Allah fail you on the days of fasting and Fitr.

footnote (2): Sultan al-‘Ulema said: They confused the day of ‘Arafah and the day of ‘Eid as a result of Allah’s anger on the Sunnies, most of their days of ‘Arafah are actually days of ‘Eid, so he (as) did not fast on their day of ‘Eid because he avoided fasting on the true day of ‘Eid, this does not deny the merit of fasting the true day of ‘Arafah.”

Comment: Ok let’s comment on the main narration as I’ll avoid commenting on the rest of the hateful and evil material, So the infallible Imam did not fast on ‘Arafah because he Feared that if he fasted on this one day that he’d be too weak to make Du’ah to Allah, that is obviously the worst excuse I’ve ever heard to get out of fasting, I wonder how he spends his entire month of Ramadhan if he’s too weak to make Du’ah because of fasting on one day, then the Imam (fabricator of the Hadith) presents his second lame excuse in saying that he Fears that if he fasted on it that it might be on a day of ‘Eid, I say there is nothing to Fear, aren’t you the divinely guided infallible Imam? surely you must not be afraid of confusing ‘Eid with ‘Arafah… :p

Then the all merciful Allah becomes angry on the Sunnies and curses them for all eternity… hmmm… kind of reminds me of the story of the Jews who killed their prophets… Gee I wonder who fabricated this Hadith.
