Shia scholars and narrations claim verse 4:59 was distorted


بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

Allah says in verse 59 of Surah Nisa:

Sahih International

O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best [way] and best in result.

Notice the highlighted part. The Quranic verse only says “And if you disagree on anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger”.

However, Shia narrations and scholars claim this part of the verse was distorted as it originally contained an additional phrase.

We read in Shia classical book Tafseer Al-Qumi (p. 135):

فرض على الناس طاعتهم فقال: { يا أيها الذين آمنوا أطيعوا الله وأطيعوا الرسول وأولي الأمر منكم } يعني أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام حدثني أبي عن حماد عن حريز عن أبي عبدالله عليه السلام قال نزلت: { فإن تنازعتم في شيء فارجعوه إلى الله والرسول وأولي الأمر منكم }.

[He made their obedience obligatory on the people, so he said: {Believers, obey Allah, His Messenger, and your leaders} meaning Ameer al-Mu’mineen peace be upon him. My father told me, from Hamad bin Hurayz, from abu `Abdillah (as) that he said: “It was revealed: {refer it to Allah, His Messenger, and the leaders among you.}“]

A similar narration is present in Rawdat Al-Kafi #212 in which he recites the verse in that fashion, implying that the Qur’an is corrupted.

عَلِيُّ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ عَنْ أَبِيهِ عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي عُمَيْرٍ عَنْ عُمَرَ بْنِ أُذَيْنَةَ عَنْ بُرَيْدِ بْنِ مُعَاوِيَةَ قَالَ تَلَا أَبُو جَعْفَرٍ ( عليه السلام ) أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَ أَطِيعُوا الرَّسُولَ وَ أُولِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ فَإِنْ خِفْتُمْ تَنَازُعاً فِي الْأَمْرِ فَأَرْجِعُوهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَ إِلَى الرَّسُولِ وَ إِلَى أُولِي الْأَمْرِ مِنْكُمْ ثُمَّ قَالَ كَيْفَ يَأْمُرُ بِطَاعَتِهِمْ وَ يُرَخِّصُ فِي مُنَازَعَتِهِمْ إِنَّمَا قَالَ ذَلِكَ لِلْمَأْمُورِينَ الَّذِينَ قِيلَ لَهُمْ أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَ أَطِيعُوا الرَّسُولَ

[`Ali bin Ibrahim, from his father, from ibn abi `Umayr, from `Umar bin Udhaynah, from Burayd bin Mu`awiyah that abu Ja`far (as) recited: {Believers, obey Allah, His Messenger, and your leaders, if ye fear that you would differ among yourselves then refer it to Allah and the messenger and your leaders} Then he (as) said: “How can he order their obedience then allow you to differ with them? He only meant the ones who are under orders when he said {Obey Allah and obey the messenger}.]

The narration was declared as “Hasan” by Al-Majlisi in his book “Mir’at al-`Uqoul” 26/76.

Al-Majlisi adds:

[It is apparent from many of the narrations that the term “and the leaders among you” was affirmed here, but was then removed.]

Shia Scholars: The real Quran is with the hidden Shia 12th Imam


بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

We have already shown on this blog, here, the biggest Shia website, al-Islam.org, claimed the real Quran is with the Shia twelfth Imam or the Shia Mahdi. Now we are going to show more opinions of Shia scholars who make the same claim. They claim Ali compiled the Quran but the Sahaba rejected his version because it contained their ‘scandals’ so Ali hid and it is now with the Shia 12th Imam and when he appears he will bring the ‘real’ Quran. 

— Start —

Now we shall discuss these ‘Aqaed one by one, starting with the first one.

The first belief:

The Caliphs collected the Quran after ‘Ali (ra) came to them with the correct Quran that he had collected, after checking its contents they rejected ‘Ali’s (ra) collection and made their own.

The leader of the Shia Muhaddiths (Scholars of Hadith) ibn Babaweih al-Qummi whom they call al-Saduq says in one of the most important Shia books of ‘Aqaed “Kitab al-I’itiqadat fi Deen al-Imamiyah” pg.86:

[ Ameer al-Mumineen (as) had collected it, and when he brought it to them, he said: “This is the book of your Lord as it was revealed on your Prophet, without any added or removed letters.” They said: “We have no need for it, we have one like the one you have.” so he left while reciting: {But they threw it away behind their backs and exchanged it for a small price. And wretched is that which they purchased.} (Quran 3:187)]

The grand Shia scholar Murtada al-Ansari says in the old print of “Kitab al-Salat” pg.119:

[For this they rejected the Quran of Ameer al-Mumineen (as) when he presented it to them, so he hid it for his son al-Qaem(Mahdi) may Allah hasten his appearance.]

‘Allamah and Muhaqqiq(Researcher) ‘Ali bin Musa al-Tabrizi says in “Miraat al-Kutub” pg.32:

[As was stated in the narrations that he (as) collected the Quran after the passing of the Prophet (SAWS) and he brought it to them but they never accepted it, so it remained preserved and stored until the appearance of the Qaem (aj)]

‘Allamah Muhammad Hussein TabaTabaei says in “Kitab al-Quran fil-Islam” pg.137:

[And the Imam Ameer al-Mumineen (as) although he was the first to collect the Quran in the order it was revealed and they rejected his compilation and they did not allow him to participate in the first or second collections.]

He also says in “Kitab al-Shia fil-Islam” pg.28-29:

[And the Prophet (SAWS) had declared that ‘Ali was the most knowledgeable in Islamic and Quranic sciences, and they did not allow him to participate in collecting the Quran (and they knew that after the death of the Prophet (SAWS) ‘Ali was sitting in his home gathering the Quran) and his name was never mentioned in their meetings and gatherings.]

Sheikh ‘Ali al-Kourani al-’Amili says in his book “Alf Soual wa Ishkal” 1/243:

[In reality there was no problem in the task of collecting the Quran, this problem was created by the government! (the government here means ‘Umar) Who did not accept the copy of the Quran brought forth by ‘Ali (as) as the official copy used by the Muslims.]

He also said in his book “Tadween al-Quran” pg.256:

[And with this ‘Ali (as) had fulfilled his responsibility towards the nation, and presented them with the Quranic copy by order of the Prophet (SAWS) and ‘Ali’s (as) own handwriting, but they saw (in their interests) that it must not be the official copy of the Quran.]

Ayatullah ‘Ali al-Milani says in “Muhadarat fil-I’itiqadat” 2/602:

[It’s true that Ameer al-Mumineen (as) collected the Quran, and I pointed to this previously, the Imam came to them with the Quran but they refused it, ‘Ali had a Quran, this is proven and everyone remembers it.]

Ayatullah Muhammad al-Hussein al-Husseini al-Tehrani says in “Noor Malakut al-Quran” 4/345:

[As for the narrations of the Shia, we see that he (as) placed the Quran on a camel and brought it to the Masjid(Mosque) and said: “This is your Quran!” they replied: “We don’t need your Quran!” and they did not pay him any attention, so he grabbed the reins of his camel and went home and said: “You will never see it until the day of judgment.”]

He also said on pg.343:

[Ameer al-Mumineen (as) was the first to express the idea of collecting the Quran directly after the death o the Prophet (SAWS), even though his own collection was rejected.]

Grand Ayatullah Muhammad al-Husseini al-Shirazi says in “Mata Jumi’a al-Quran” pg.31:

[As for the issue of ‘Ali’s (as) Quran that he had collected but was rejected, what is meant here is what was collected in terms of Tafseer(explanations) and Taaweel(Interpretations) like he (as) had mentioned in a narration that was narrated from him.]

Shia writer Dr. Zuhair al-Bitar says in “al-Imamah Tilka al-Haqiqah al-Quraniayh” pg.49:

[But when they denied him, they had to work based on their own opinions, so they rejected the Quran he (as) gathered for them according to the reasons of revelation so that no one may misinterpret it, and they gathered it in the known fashion.]

He said on pg.50:

[The reality of the matter is that Ameer al-Mumineen ‘Ali (as) remained playing the role of the lawyer who defends the Sunnah and the Quran, as we stated earlier he collected the Quran according to the reasons of revelation because it is directly linked to the interpretation, so they rejected it because it displayed facts that disagree with their methods.]

Shia writer ‘Abdullah ‘Ali Ahmad al-Daqqaq says in “Haqiqat Mushaf al-Imam ‘Ali ‘ind al-Sunnah wal-Shia” pg.309-314:

[The narrations found within the Imami Shia sources confirm that the Caliphate had refused the Quran of Imam ‘Ali (as) (…) And because the Imami narrations showing the rejection of the Caliphate to the Quran of Imam ‘Ali (as) are many, we feel reassured that this matter has occurred (…) the reluctance to accept the Quran of Imam ‘Ali (as) and its rejection, and even trying to find a replacement]

So notice dear reader how the Shia scholars have tried to strip this Quran of its legitimacy because a group of people supposedly rejected the infallible Quran of ‘Ali (ra) after finding that its contents (whether  the verses or the interpretation) do not suit their desires and ambitions.

How can this book have any legitimacy if it differs from the infallible book collected by the infallible Imam with special directions and supervision from the infallible Prophet (SAWS)!?

I ask the honest Shia will you feel at ease when reading a Quran gathered by those whom your scholars accuse of having rejected the infallible Quran after checking its contents!?

Sheikh ‘Ali al-Kourani says in “Tadween al-Quran” pg.181:

[They refused to adopt that copy because it contained the interpretation of all verses and many if not all were in favor of ‘Ali according to them.]

Sheikh Ja’afar Murtada al-’Amili says in his book “Maasat al-Zahraa” 1/366-367:

[The Quran was gathered in the days of the Prophet (SAWS) but the first two Caliphs refused the Quran of the messenger of Allah (SAWS) because it contained the revelation and the interpretations and the reasons of revelation and the explanations. As well as other things that could have embarrassed many people but the Caliphs refused to embarrass them nor spread the truths about them. Then they collected the Quran in one book after they dropped the explanations and interpretations and the reasons of revelation from it as is known.]

‘Abdullah ‘Ali Ahmad al-Daqqaq says in his book “Haqiqat Mushaf al-Imam ‘Ali” pg.304:

[Also some of the narrations stated that the scandals of those folks were present in the ‘Alawie Quran (‘Ali’s copy), this is why the Caliphate rejected it.]

And on pg.313:

[When Abu Bakr opened it, on the first page he found the scandals of the folks, so ‘Umar jumped up and said: “O ‘Ali, return it, we have no need for it.” So we realize that the rejection came as a reaction to the contents and the scandals found in it, they rejected it to hide them.]

The sixth belief:

The Quran of ‘Ali (ra) that the 12th hidden Imam al-Mahdi shall reveal is a new Quran, different than the one the Muslims are used to because of its miraculous power and difference in interpretation and accuracy and the perfection of its collection.

Since ‘Ali’s (ra) Quran had all those unique aspects that allow it to touch people’s hearts, to truly display the miraculous power of the Quran, to be understood in the proper way as Allah intended ect…, thus they began calling it “The new Quran” in their narrations, such as the Hadith(narration) of Muhammad bin Ibrahim al-Nu’umani:

[From abu Baseer, he said: abu Ja’far (as) said: al-Qaem (as) will rise in a new order, a new book, a new judgment, Harsh on the Arabs. He will only use his sword and will not accept the repentance of anyone, nor will he fear anyone but Allah.]

sources: Ghaybat al-Nu’umani pg.237, Bihar al-Anwar 52/354, Ithbat al-Hudat 3/540, Mu’ujam Hadith al-Mahdi 3/253.

Grand Ayatullah and Muhaqqiq al-Muntaziri says about this in “Dirasat fi Wilayat al-Faqih” 1/521:

[And in the narration of abu Baseer, from abu Ja’far (as) regarding the Qaem (as): “By Allah, it is as if I am looking at him between al-Rukn and al-Maqam and the people are giving him Baya’ah on a new order and a new book and a new authority from the sky.] (…) And by  New Quran he means its explanation dictated by the Prophet (SAWS) and in Ameer al-Mumineen’s (as) own handwriting, as we have read in many narrations.]

Sheikh ‘Ali al-Kourani says in “Kitab ‘Asr al-Zuhour” pg.88-89:

[And what may have been meant by the “New Book” is the new Quran with its new order of verses and chapters, it was reported that this copy is preserved with the Mahdi (as) along with other things inherited from the Prophets (SAWS)]

Sheikh ‘Abdul-Latif al-Baghdadi says in “Tahqeeq fil-Imamah” pg.235-236:

[Yes, and this Quran remained with its correct explanation with ‘Ali (as) and after him with al-Hassan (as), and so on until it became from the private inheritance of the pure Imams, and now it is with Imam al-‘Asr wal-Zaman al-Mahdi (aj). It was reported from al-Baqir (as) that he said: “If he arose (al-Mahdi) he will start with a new order, a new book, a new Sunnah, a new judgment, he shall be Harsh with the Arabs.” (al-Majalis al-Sunniyah). And from him (as) in another Hadith: ” By Allah, it is as if I am looking at him between al-Rukn and al-Maqam and the people are giving him Baya’ah on a new order and a new book and a new authority from the sky, his flag will not be held back until his death.” and what is meant here by New order and New Book and New Sunnah and judgment and authority is bringing the true laws of Islam as Allah had wanted, and bringing the Quran with its Tanzeel and Taaweel and the explanation of its laws.]

I have to say here, that it is sad and ironic that these people are saying that the true religion and the true Shari’ah and laws shall only appear with the Mahdi (as), Isn’t that a bit too late? is this considered fair?

al-Mirza Muhammad Taqi al-Isfahani says in “Mikyal al-Makarim” 1/184-185:

[Allah says: {And We had already given Moses the Scripture, but it came under disagreement.} (Quran 41:45). al-Tabrasi (rah) says in “Majma’a al-Bayan” that what is meant is that his people differed and disagreed on it, meaning on the authenticity of the book revealed on him. There will also be a disagreement on the book that al-Qaem (as)  will bring, the complete book preserved with al-Hujjah (as).

-What points to this, is what we find in Rawdat al-Kafi with its Isnad from abu Ja’far on Allah’s saying: {And We had already given Moses the Scripture, but it came under disagreement.} (Quran 41:45), he (as) said: “They disagreed on it just like this nation disagreed on its book and they will disagree on the book of al-Qaem which he will bring to them, many people will deny it so he will execute them and cut off their necks.”]

He says in the same book pg.197:

[‘Aziz (as) when he returned to his people and appeared to them, he read the Torah exactly as it was revealed on Musa bin ‘Imran (as). al-Qaem (as) when he will appear to the people of the earth shall read the Quran as it was revealed on the seal of the Prophets (SAWS).]

He also said on pg.63:

[I say: This could be the secret as to why al-Qaem (as) was called “The great Quran”, considering that he orders u to follow it and pushes the people to read it and he reveals it and promotes it]

So this belief like those before it, makes the Shia ignore this Quran and not pay much attention to it, instead he’d just wait for the arrival of his Imam and the other Quran. It is as if the Shia are saying: “Forget about this Book collected by the Caliphs, let us all wait for the Mahdi to reveal the New Quran, the complete Quran that pleases Allah and is hidden with his Imams.”

Shia scholars: Shia Narrations on Tahrif Quran are Mutawatir


بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

Shia scholar al-`Allamah Muhammad Salih al-Mazindarani says in “Sharh al-Kafi” 11/76:

[The deletion of some parts of the Qur’an and its corruption was established in our sources with Tawatur, as it is apparent for those who observe the books of Hadith from beginning to end.]

Shia scholar Muhammad al-Lucknawi wrote in “Darbat Haydari” 2/78:

[The claim that no corruption took place in the Qur’an is apparently corrupt, because the narrations showing this corruption have reached Tawatur.]

Shia scholar `Abdullah Shubbar said in “Masabih al-Anwar fi Hall Mushkilat al-Akhbar” 2/294-295:

[Most of what is in our hands today is the Qur’an that was revealed upon the Prophet (as) and many parts of it have been removed, as proven by the great amount of narrations that are almost Mutawatir, and we have clarified this in our book: Muniyah al-Muhasileen fi Haqiyat Tareeq al-Mujtahideen.]

Shia scholar Sultan Muhammad al-Janabidhi says in “Tafsir Bayan al-Sa`adah fi Maqamat al-`Ibadah” pg.19:

[Know (O reader) that a plentiful amount of narrations from the pure Imams state that additions and deletions and corruption and change have taken place in it, in a way that leaves no doubt.]

Shia scholar Muhammad Mahdi al-Naraqi said in “Minhaj al-Ahkam” under the chapter “Hujjiyat Zawahir al-Kitab”:

[Deletion has taken place in the Qur’an, meaning: Parts of it have been removed, even if we do not know specifically where it is, as shown by the many un-contradicted narrations and proofs.]

Some verses of Quran about the Companions (Sahaba) of Prophet (saw)


بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

Some verses of the Quran about the Companions (Sahaba) of Prophet (saw), especially the Muhajirin (emigrants) and Ansar (helpers).

[003:195]  And their Lord hath accepted of them, and answered them: “Never will I suffer to be lost the work of any of you, be he male or female: Ye are members, one of another: Those who have left their homes, or been driven out therefrom, or suffered harm in My Cause, or fought or been slain,- verily, indeed I shall wipe out their evil deeds from them, and admit them into Gardens with rivers flowing beneath;– A reward from the presence of God, and from His presence is the best of rewards.” 

Does it include Ali? It is impossible as per Shia beliefs because according to Shias, he is infallible and doesn’t have evil deeds. So who are they?

[008:072]  Those who believed, and adopted exile, and fought for the Faith, with their property and their persons, in the cause of God, as well as those who gave (them) asylum and aid,- these are (all) friends and protectors, one of another. As to those who believed but came not into exile, ye owe no duty of protection to them until they come into exile; but if they seek your aid in religion, it is your duty to help them, except against a people with whom ye have a treaty of mutual alliance. And (remember) God seeth all that ye do.

Who fought with their property, besides by their selves? 

[008:074]  Those who believe, and adopt exile, and fight for the Faith, in the cause of God as well as those who give (them) asylum and aid,- these are (all) in very truth the Believers: for them is the forgiveness of sins and a provision most generous.

Of course who can be better believers than those people. The Shia think they are the ones? 

[008:075]  And those who accept Faith subsequently, and adopt exile, and fight for the Faith in your company,- they are of you. But kindred by blood have prior rights against each other in the Book of God. Verily God is well-acquainted with all things. 

“Hussain is from me and I am from Hussain”. And what about these people?

[009:020]  Those who believe, and suffer exile and strive with might and main, in God’s cause, with their goods and their persons, have the highest rank in the sight of God: they are the people who will achieve (salvation). 

Those who fought with their goods were special people. It doesn’t include Ali, Abu Dharr, Salman, Ammar and Bilal  :Salam: They were other than these great sahaba. Who were they?

[016:041]  To those who leave their homes in the cause of God, after suffering oppression,- We will assuredly give a goodly home in this world; but truly the reward of the Hereafter will be greater. If they only realised (this)!

Who suffered oppression?

[016:110]  But verily thy Lord,- to those who leave their homes after trials and persecutions,- and who thereafter strive and fight for the faith and patiently persevere,- Thy Lord, after all this is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.


Who suffered persecution?

[022:039]  To those against whom war is made, permission is given (to fight), because they are wronged;- and verily, God is most powerful for their aid;-
[022:040]  (They are) those who have been expelled from their homes in defiance of right,- (for no cause) except that they say, “our Lord is God” …


Indeed, they were expelled only due to Islam and they were oppressed.

A look at evidences provided against the superiority of Abu Bakr and Umar among companions

 
Bismillah

Among their claim is:

1. Sahaba disagreed over Tafzil among companions.
2. All of Banu Hashim preferred Ali (ra) over Shaykhain (ra).
3. This is an issue based on speculation and hence the a person holding different opinion is not going away from Sunnah.

And other related issues. I’ll start it soon.
