We previously presented a big amount of authentic Shia narrations stating that wine is pure, and another big groups of Shia narrations stating the opposite, here is the link:
Wine is pure or impure according to Imams?
And we showed that there was no room for Taqqiyah since Ahlul-Sunnah have a difference of opinion.
As you all know most of these narrations and most of the Shia narrations come from al-Sadiq and al-Baqir, so Nader(a shia) said that since there exists a narration from later Imams such as abu al-Hassan Musa al-Kathim, then we should always take the narrations of the later Imams when there is conflict:
There is also a rule in Shee`ah Hadeeth science is if there are two authentic hadeeth, then take the stronger chain or take the hadeeth from the latter Imaam.
Wa `Alaykum Assalaam
However, I have a problem with taking the Hadith from the Later Imams for the following reason…
Shia scholar al-Jawahiri says in “Jawaher al-Kalam” (1/413) & (2/15):
روايات القاظم أقرب إلى التقية من روايات الباقر, بل الصادق, فتحمل حينئذ على التقية
[The narrations of al-Kathim were closer to being Taqqiyah than the narrations of al-Baqir, or even al-Sadiq, so they would be counted as Taqqiyah.]
إن في زمن القاظم, كانت التقية في زمانه في غاية الشدة
[In the time of al-Kathim, Taqqiyah was extremely used.]
And the Shia scholar writes in the footnotes of “Majma` al-Fa’idah wal-Burhan” by al-Waheed al-Bahbahani pg164:
فيظهر منه أن روايته عن الكاظم كان تقية, و يؤيده نهاية شدة التقية في زمانه, و لذا قد كثر منه ما يوافق التقية
[So this shows that his narrations from al-Kathim were Taqqiyah, this is backed by the state of extreme Taqqiyah in his time, and so lots of what we got from him is Taqqiyah.]
So the question now is this, how can you trust the narration coming from a man who is in an extreme state of Taqqiyah?By Hani (aka TripolySunni) Original link Posted by 13S2010
