Shia narration: Verse of Wudhu was revealed differently

بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

Allah says in the Quran:

فَاغْسِلُوا وُجُوهَكُمْ وَأَيْدِيَكُمْ إِلَى الْمَرَافِقِ

wash your faces, and your hands to the elbows; (5:6)

However, Shia do the opposite; they wash FROM the elbows to their hands. They start washing with elbows and then the hands.

In order to justify their beliefs they even question the authenticity of the Quran. When the verses didn’t support their claims and beliefs they attributed narrations to Ahlulbayt that say these verses were originally revealed differently but when the enemies of Ahlulbayt compiled the Quran, they made changes to these verses.

One example is their narration about the sixth verse of Surah Maida. They have attributed a narration to Jafar bin Muhammad who is free from their lies. The narration is present in al-Kafi.

Rough translation:

…I asked Abu Abdillah (as) about the saying of Allah (swt) “wash your faces, and your hands TO the elbowsHe said: This is not how it was revealed rather it was [revealed] “wash your faces, and your hands FROM the elbows

محمد بن الحسن وغيره، عن سهل بن زياد، عن علي بن الحكم، عن الهيثم ابن عروة التميمي قال سألت أبا عبد الله (عليه السلام) عن قول الله عز وجل: ” فاغسلوا وجوهكم وأيديكم إلى المرافق فقلت: هكذا ومسحت من ظهر كفي إلى المرفق، فقال: ليس هكذا تنزيلها إنما هي ” فاغسلوا وجوهكم وأيديكم من المرافق ، ثم أمر يده من مرفقه إلى أصابعه.
