The Imam calls the Caliph of his time “Ameer al-Mumineen”


Bismilah,

I thought they were evil tyrants an that they were chasing the Imams and the Imams were running away from them and hiding and doing Taqqiyah and acting like ignorants so they won’t suspect them ect… but we see the Imams praising the “Ameer al-Mumineen” of their times,

حدثنا الحاكم أبو علي الحسين بن أحمد البيهقي قال حدثني محمد بن يحيى الصولي قال : حدثني أحمد بن محمد بن إسحاق قال : حدثنا أبي قال : لما بويع الرضا ع بالعهد اجتمع الناس إليه يهنئونه فأومى إليهم فأنصتوا ثم قال بعد أن استمع كلامهم : بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم الحمد لله الفعال لما يشاء لا معقب لحكمه ولا راد لقضائه (يعلم خائنة الأعين وما تخفي الصدور) وصلى الله على محمد في الأولين والآخرين وعلى آله الطيبين الطاهرين أقول وأنا علي بن موسى بن جعفر ع : إن أمير المؤمنين عضده الله بالسداد ووفقه للرشاد عرف من حقنا ما جهله غيره فوصل أرحاما قطعت وآمن نفوسا فزعت بل أحياها وقد تلفت وأغناها إذا افتقرت مبتغيا رضا رب العالمين لا يريد جزاء إلا من عنده (وسيجزي الله الشاكرين ولا يضيع أجر المحسنين ) وأنه جعل إلي عهده والإمرة الكبرى إن بقيت بعده فمن حل عقدة أمر الله تعالى بشدها وقصم عروة أحب الله إيثاقها فقد أباح حريمه وأحل محرمه إذا كان بذلك زاريا على الإمام منتهكا حرمة الإسلام بذلك جرى السالف فصبر منه على الفلتات ولم يعترض بعدها على الغرمات خوفا على شتات الدين واضطراب حبل المسلمين ولقرب أمر الجاهلية ورصد المنافقين فرصة تنتهز وبائقة تبتدر وما أدري ما يفعل بي ولا بكم ؟ أن الحكم إلا لله يقضي الحق

[al-Hakim abu ‘Ali al-Hussein bin Ahmad al-Beihaqi said: Muhammad bin Yaha al-Suwali said: Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Ishaq said: my father said:

When al-Reda (as) received the Baya’ah as the heir to the throne, the people gathered around him to congratulate him so he waved his hand and they quieted down, he then said: “In the name of Allah most graceful most merciful, He does what he wishes and no one can reject his blessings, and peace and blessings be upon Muhammad in the first and the last and his kind and pure family, I say and I am ‘Ali bin Musa bin Ja’far (as): “Ameer al-Mumineen may Allah support him with success and guide him to wisdom knew of our rights what others have ignored, so he bridged the family connections that have been cut, and comforted souls that were in fear, he revived what has deteriorated and enriched what was poor, and he is only seeking to please the Lord and does not want a reward except from Allah (And Allah will reward the grateful and the doers of good.) and he offered me the throne as his heir if I should live after him…(until the end of the Hadith).]

al-Kafi 7/287.
Majlisi said “SAHIH” 24/39 

‘Amro bin abi al-Miqdam said: I was present near the Ka’abah when a man started calling on abu Ja’far al-Mansoor while he was making Tawaf, he would say: “O Ameer al-Mumineen, these two men knocked on my brother at night and they took him out of his house and by Allah he never returned to me, I do not know what they might have done to him!” So al-Mansoor said: “What have you two done to him?” they answered: “We only spoke to him and then he returned home.” so he said to them: “You two meet me tomorrow during the ‘Asr prayer in this same place.” So they did that on the next day, al-Mansoor then said to abu ‘Abdullah Ja’far bin Muhammad (as) while holding his hand: “O Ja’far, you judge between them.” abu ‘Abdullah (as) said: “O Ameer al-Mumineen, you judge between them.” so al-Mansoor said: “By my right on you, you need to judge between them.” so they prepared a place for abu ‘Abdullah to sit in and the men sat in front of him, he (as) said: “What say you?” the man said: “O son of Rassul-Allah (SAWS) these two knocked on my brother at night and they accompanied him out of his house and by Allah he never returned, I do not know what they did to him.” he (as) said: “What do you two say?” they said: “O son of Rassul-Allah (SAWS) we spoke to him and then he went back home.” so Ja’far said: Write down: In the name of Allah, the Prophet (SAWS) said: “every man who knocks on another at night and accompanies him out of his home must guarantee him, unless he can prove that he returned him back to his house.” Ja’far then said: “Boy, let that one step aside and strike the neck of this one.” The man said: “O son of Rassul-Allah (SAWS), by Allah I did not kill him, I only held him and that man came and stabbed him.” so Ja’far said: “Boy! let that one step aside and strike the neck of the other one.” So the man said: “O Son of Rassul-Allah (SAWS), I did not torture him, I killed him with one blow.” So he ordered that his neck be struck and ordered that the sides of the second man be struck and he was imprisoned for life and lashed fifty times every year.

Question: Didn’t the Shia scholars say it is HARAM to call anyone “Ameer al-Mumineen” except ‘Ali (ra)? didn’t they narrate in volume 8 of their Kafi that:

كُنْتُمْ بِهِ تَدَّعُونَ أَمِيرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ( عليه السلام ) يَا فُضَيْلُ لَمْ يَتَسَمَّ بِهَذَا الِاسْمِ غَيْرُ عَلِيٍّ ( عليه السلام ) إِلَّا مُفْتَرٍ كَذَّابٌ إ

“O Fudayl, no one was given this name except ‘Ali (as) unless he was a lying impostor!”

Suddenly now al-Reda is calling the Caliph of his time “Ameer al-Mumineen”?

  1. All the self appointed rulers so called Khaleefahs of Bani Umayyads,& Bani Abbasids dynasty were only local rulers of their times and it is right that only divinely appointed immaculate and infallible Imams starting from Ameeral Momeneen Ali Ibne Abitalib (a s) and after him the progeny of Ali (a s) and the daughter of the Rasool e Akram (saaws) were the genuine Khalifa e waqt of their times . As such it is absurd, wrong and evil insinuation to call any usurper khalifa e waqt . Of course any one whosoever , male or female, , who came out and waged a war with the real Imam/Khalifah of his/her time ,what ever may have been the position, ceases to be that and becomes an apostate/Kafir .
    As such calling the khalifa who wanted on political reasions as well as for evli intentions , naming the Imam as his successor is just a bogey and nothing else .The Imam will ever call that nathal / apostate Amiral Momeneen & it could have
    been only be a figment of imagination of derailed mind who fabricated this story.Do you think that the Waris e Ameeral Momeneen , the Imam e Waqt as well as the Khalifatul momeneen e Waq whose great grand father was the Khlifa e Bila Fasl and whose Sons Hasan and Husain (a s ) were called by Prophet of Islam (saaws) as the Leader of the inhabitants of Jannah will feel pride in the proposal to rule a few peoples of that small region for few days, months or years . Even such ideas are very poor example of Himour..

    • What non-sense are you posting? There is no need to be emotional.

      The ‘infallible’ Imams calls the caliph of his time ‘Amir al-Mominin’. Now how are you gonna answer it? I know it is destroying a part of Shiism beliefs.

      P.S. I updated the article and added another narration where other ‘infallible’ Imam also calls the Caliph of his time ‘Amir al-Mominin’.

    • islamistruth indeed, but many were and are those who diminish it in the world, of course we are not denying an imaam or other may practice taqiyya to save lives etc, many time they would lecture then when the evil authorites sent their spies to see who are the followers they would say things to appease the spies with their info to their evil masters and save the followers etc, didnt the sahaba heavily insult etc ammar ibn yasir and whose mother was sumayya who was first martyr in islam and prophet sawa said he was correct to practice taqiyya?

      • So your Imams were misguiding people just to save their lives? They used to lie upon Allah (swt) and the Prophet (saw) and misguide people just to save theirs?

        What a religion you have.

    • abusulaiman

      you are so much rigid about your false belief.listen you are not creating any shariat.shut up saying ill things and justifying it by your false logics.shia ism is filth dust hatred negativity covered in a golden sack labelled as ahley bait.while we muslims are thr real lovers of ahley bait.

    • Shani

      Lol stop running away and start typing. Did or didn’t infalliable imam call caliph Amir al mimineen. A simple YES or NO.

  2. You people are habitual to call every one else ‘non sense ‘ .Understandable if the hero of you people who calls the Prophet of Allah (saaws) a man who has
    lost his senses (ma’az Allah ) I am a very small admirer of the Rasool (s) . I will not even mind being called such .
    But Imam Aali Moqaam, Farzand e Rasool (s) did not bow to the tyrrant Maloun yazeed son of Moaviah (L.A) , how any fool can claim that Imam e Raza (a s) will call an ordinary tituler ruler , an Amiral Momeneen , the story as such is proved to be false & fabricated to belittle the status of Imam (a s) and for this unforgivable sin the person is destined for Jahannum for ever along with his admirers.
    Being emotional and angry is natural for the followers of the Rasool (s) whose
    immaculate and infalliable progeny is subjected to derogatory remarks. .

  3. Sam_zam

    IF Imam Ali (RA) was suppose to be the first Caliph, then why did he wait for so long ? if he was automatically the chosen caliph after Rasool (SW) then he should have done Jihad against the other caliphs. Dont give me answers that he was kind and was taking thing with utter patience.

  4. openMind

    barakallahu fiik yaa akhiy (islamistruth admin)

  5. Ali (a s) only was Ameeral Momeneen , how the three rulers before him could dare to call themself Ameer when they were self appointed , illegitimate , the
    middle one in real lineage too and by the act of fleeing away from the battlefield in Ohad , they were apostate , unbeliever and a resident of hell so how anyone can call them Ameer al momeneen when they were not even muslim

    • abusulaiman

      shut up lanti.even when prophet muhammad (saw)never said any thing bad about them.how dare you to speak ill about the caliphs.besides only Allah decides who would be in hell or heaven.u cant decide anything anaouzbilla.be monotheistic if u r a muslim

  6. حضرت عمر کا شجرہ نصب

    Nofail + Sahaak = Hattab
    Hattab + Sahaak = Hantamah
    Hattab +Hantama= The respected 2nd OBK.
    based on dozen ahadees ahle sunna ,Wallah Aalam
