Ali Khamenei praises Umar ibn Al-Khattāb for his justice [Rare Video]


بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

Ali Khamenei, the current supreme leader of Iran, praises Amir al-Muminin Omar bin Khattab (ra) for his justice. He doesn’t name Omar (ra) but simply refers to him as the “Second Caliph”. He mentions the famous story of an egyptian who was beaten by by the son of Amr ibn al-As and how Omar (ra) established justice. After mentioning the story he then says: “This is the beauty of Islam”.

The speech is from his Friday sermon in Tehran (28 years ago).

Shia scholar al-Fayd al-Kashani & his belief of Tahreef al-Quran


al-Salamu `Aleykum,

In this article I will discuss al-Fayd al-Kashani and his belief in Tahreef, I had seen that the Shia were debating this topic with some of Ahlul-Sunnah on their forum, and our popular Shi`ee brother Nader Zaveri wrote:

 

Only someone who is ignorant of Arabic or a purposeful liar would claim al-Fayd al-Kashani believed in tahrif after reading his introduction.

 

Here I assume he is talking about the famous introduction written by the Safavid scholar al-Kashani in which he discusses his opinion concerning this matter, the sixth introduction.

al-Kashani begins on page 40 by quoting the narrations from Tafseer al-Qummi & al-Kafi on how `Ali collected the Qur’an after Rasul-Allah (saw) passed away, and how the companions rejected his Mushaf. He also quotes narrations of how the companions of al-Sadiq recited the Qur’an in a manner contrary to the rest of the nation, then al-Sadiq tells them to recite it like the nation does until the Mahdi rises and teaches people the truth.

Three Shia infallible Imams, Three conflicting answers


al-Salamu `Aleykum,

We often come across this but this time I feel posting it…

محمد بن يعقوب، عن علي بن إبراهيم، عن محمد بن عيسى، عن يونس عن معاوية بن وهب قال: سألت أبا عبدالله (عليه السلام) عن النوم في المسجد الحرام ومسجد الرسول (صلى الله عليه وآله)؟ قال: نعم

[`Ali bin Ibrahim, from Muhammad bin `Isa, from Yunus, from Mu`awiyah bin Wahb that he said: I asked abu `Abdillah (as) about sleeping in the Masjid al-Haram and the Masjid al-Nabawi, he said: It’s allowed.]

source: al-Kafi 3/369 #10.

وعنه، عن أبيه، عن حماد، عن حريز، عن زرارة بن أعين قال: قلت لأبي جعفر (عليه السلام): ما تقول في النوم في المساجد؟ فقال: لا بأس به، إلا في المسجدين: مسجد النبي (صلى الله عليه وآله) والمسجد الحرام

[`Ali bin Ibrahim, from his father, from Hammad, from Hurayz, from Zurarah bin A`yyan that he said: I told abu Ja`far (as): What is your verdict on sleeping in the Masaajid? He said: No harm in this, except for two: Masjid al-Nabi and Masjid al-Haram.]

source: al-Kafi 3/370 #11.

عن عبدالله بن الحسن، عن جده علي بن جعفر، عن أخيه، قال: سألته عن النوم في المسجد الحرام؟ قال: لابأس، وسألته عن النوم في مسجد الرسول؟ قال: لا يصلح

[From `Abdullah bin al-Hasan, from his grandfather `Ali bin Ja`far, from his brother, He said: I asked him about sleeping in the Masjid al-Haram? He repied: No harm in this. Then I asked him about sleeping in Masjid al-Rasul? He said: Not allowed.]

source: Qurb al-Isnad pg.69 #6382.

al-Baqir says: You cannot sleep in al-Masjid al-Nabawi nor al-Masjid al-Haram but the rest are ok.

al-Sadiq his son contradicts him and says: There is no issue in sleeping in any Masjid.

al-Kadhim his grandson contradicts both and says: No issue in sleeping in Masjid al-Haram but not in al-Nabawi.

The joys of infallibility. This is what I call “Lutf”, Allah left us without an infallible and we only have conflicting Hadith.

Shia scholar: Most Shia Tafsirs are far from the Quran


بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

al-Salamu `Aleykum,

The Shia scholar al-Sayyid al-`Allamah Hashim Ma`rouf al-Husayni, he discusses the narrations in al-Kafi which mention that there are verses referring to the 12 Imams, he wrote in his book “Dirasat fil-Hadeeth wal-Muhadditheen” pg.314:

وقد أورد في الكافي نحوا من اثنين وتسعين رواية تتضمن تفسير أكثر من مئة آية بعلي والأئمة من ولده ( ع ) وأكثرها بعيدة عن مداليل الألفاظ وأسلوب القرآن

[ He (al-Kulayni) has included in al-Kafi around ninety two narrations, containing the interpretation(Tafseer) of more than a hundred verses as referring to `Ali and the Imams (as), and most of these interpretations are very far from the apparent wording and the method of the Qur’an.

An example from this kind of narration, is what he narrated from `Ali bin Muhammad, from Ahmad bin Muhammad bin `Abdullah regarding the verse:
{I swear by this city, [Makkah] – (1) And you, [O Muhammad], are free of restriction in this city – (2) And [by] the father and that which was born [of him], (3) We have certainly created man into hardship. (4)}

He said: “The father and what was born of him” is `Ali and his children the Imams (as) who are born from his progeny. ]

This sect fails when it comes to anything remotely related to the book of Allah.

al-Tabrasi author of al-Ihtijaj & his belief on Tahrif Quran


al-Salamu `Aleykum,

First of all, we take the following quotes from the Shia books regarding the authority of this book called “al-Ihtijaj” which was authored by the Imami scholar abu Mansour Ahmad bin `Ali bin abi Talib al-Tabrasi (died around 600 hijri)

al-Majlisi said:

 وكتاب الاحتجاج وإن كان أكثر أخباره مراسيل لكنه من الكتب المعروفة، وقد أثنى السيد ابن طاوس على الكتاب وقد أخذ عنه أكثر المتأخرين

[And the book al-Ihtijaj, even if most of its narrations are Maraseel yet it is from the popular books, and al-Sayyid ibn Tawous praised it, and the majority of late scholars take knowledge from it.]

al-Khawansari said:

 كتاب الاحتجاج معتبر معروف بين الطائفة، مشتمل على كل ما اطلع عليه من احتجاجات النبي والأئمة، بل كثير من أصحابهم الأمجاد مع جملة من الأشقياء المخالفين

[The book al-Ihtijaj is authoritative and popular among our sect, it contains all the arguments of the Prophet and Imams and their noble companions against a group of evil ones.]

Researcher of “al-Ihtijaj” Sayyid Muhammad Baqir al-Khorasan said in the introduction:

الكتاب بمجموعه موضع اعتماد الأعلام والباحثين، بالرغم من أن أكثر أحاديثه مراسيل، إلا أن الثقة الكبيرة التي يتمتع بها مؤلف الكتاب، زرعت في نفوس المؤلفين الاعتماد عليه، والنقل عنه دون تمحيص وتحقيق، وتدقيق في أسناد الأخبار والأحاديث

[The book in its entirety is relied upon by the scholars and researchers, even though most of its narrations are Mursal. However, the great trust this author has, it planted in the souls of all authors the ability of relying on it, and quoting from it without verification and without researching the chains of its narrations.]

We don’t really care for its narrations, we only care for what the author abu Mansour al-Tabrasi himself says. We will quote what al-Majlisi quoted from the book al-Ihtijaj in his own book Bihar al-Anwar 89/43. Continue reading
