Clear Mistranslation in the English version of Majlisi’s work – Hayat ul Quloob


بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

It is well known that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم had four real daughters from Khadijah رضي الله عنها . Quite many Shias nowadays deny this fact, but this was not the case with the ancient Shias. Rather there are clear and authentic narrations in Sunni and Shia books which prove that the Prophet (S) had four real daughters from Khadijah.

After mentioning those authentic narrations, Majlisi mentioned that a group of people from Shias and Sunnis state that they were not the real daughters, but then he says “But authentic narrations refute both of these statements.” ?Since this sentence was problematic, hence the English translator of Hayat ul Quloob omitted it.

Original Persian Text and its correct English translation :

و جمعى از علماى خاصه و عامه را اعتقاد آن است كه رقيه و ام كلثوم دختران خديجه بودند از شوهر ديگر مع پيش از رسول خدا (صلى الله عليه و آله و سلم) داشته و حضرت ايشان را تربيت كرده بود و دختر حقيقى آن جناب نبودند؛ و بعضى گفتند كه: دختران هاله خواهر خديجه بوده‏اند. و بر نفى اين دو قول روايت معتبره دلالت مى‏كند

A group of Shia and Sunni scholars believe that Ruqayyah and Umm Kulthum were the daughters of Khadijah from another husband before the Prophet (S), and some say that they were the daughters of Haala, the sister of Khadijah. But authentic narrations refute both of these statements.
