Sunni scholars from Ahlulbayt


بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

Not only the Sunnis took knowledge from Ahlulbayt but in the history of Islam from early times to modern day there have been thousands of scholars and Imams from the Ahlulbayt among the Ahlu-Sunnah wal-jam’ah – who constitute the vast majority of Muslims.

Unlike the minority Shia sects – the Ahlu-Sunnah did not restrict the Ahlulbayt to 5 or 7 or 12 etc people and claim only they have the knowledge rather they took knowledge from whoever were the scholar and Imam from the Ahlulbayt.

Here, I would like share some books that lists major Sunni scholars from past to modern times who are from the Ahlulbayt – keep in mind they are major scholars not random scholars. Sadly, most of the works are only available in Arabic but fortunately there is an English translation of one of the books that list the names and biographies of the Hanafi scholars from the Ahlulbayt. It can be read here:

Nahjul-Balagha.net – Truth about “the peak of eloquence”


First time a Sunni website has been launched dedicated to analysing and exposing the authenticity of Nahjul-Balagha , which means “the peak of eloquence”.

With great pleasure we announce the official opening of http://Nahjul-Balagha.net , the first Sunni website dedicated analysing and exposing the authenticity of the famous book Nahjul-Balagha, called by many Shia the “sister of the Quran”. The website also contains other useful material such the authentic quotes of Ali bin abi Talib from Sunni sources etc.

Be sure to check out our Saheeh Nahjul-Balagha in a PDF format here:

Prophet (saw): Go to Abubakr if you do not find me


The Messenger of Allah (صلی الله علیه و سلم): Go to Abubakr if you do not find me.

حَدَّثَنَا الْحُمَيْدِيُّ، وَمُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، قَالاَ حَدَّثَنَا إِبْرَاهِيمُ بْنُ سَعْدٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ جُبَيْرِ بْنِ مُطْعِمٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، قَالَ أَتَتِ امْرَأَةٌ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَأَمَرَهَا أَنْ تَرْجِعَ إِلَيْهِ‏.‏ قَالَتْ أَرَأَيْتَ إِنْ جِئْتُ وَلَمْ أَجِدْكَ كَأَنَّهَا تَقُولُ الْمَوْتَ‏.‏ قَالَ عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَمُ ‏ “‏ إِنْ لَمْ تَجِدِينِي فَأْتِي أَبَا بَكْرٍ ‏‏‏.‏

A woman came to the Prophet (ﷺ) who ordered her to return to him again. She said, “What if I came and did not find you?” as if she wanted to say, “If I found you dead?” The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “If you should not find me, go to Abu Bakr.”

Even Ali’s official letters reject the Shia Imamah


Salam,

Imami Shia claim `Ali had a distinct rank and position that no one else held, but did he clarify this in his official letters?

We find in Nahjul-Balagha, under the section on `Ali’s letters, on page 582 in a letter he sent to the Koufans as he left for Basarah:

مِنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ عَلِيّ أَمِيرِالْمُؤْمِنِينَ إلَى أَهْلِ الْكُوفَةِ، جَبْهَةِ الاَْنْصَارِ وَسَنَامِ الْعَرَبِ أَمَّا بَعْدُ

“From the slave of Allah `Ali, commander of the faithful, to the people of Kufah who are foremost among the supporters and chiefs of the Arabs.”

And in another letter he wrote regarding his Will:

هذَا مَا أَمَرَ بِهِ عَبْدُ اللهِ عَلِيُّ بْنُ أَبِي طَالِب أمِيرُالْمُؤْمِنِينَ فِي مَالِهِ، ابْتِغَاءَ وَجْهِ اللهِ، لِيُولِجَني بِهِ الْجَنَّةَ، وَيُعْطِيَني الاَْمَنَةَ

“This is what was ordered by the slave of Allah `Ali ibn abi Talib, commander of the faithful, regarding his property, seeking Allah’s face.”

On the other hand we see the leaders before him, such as `Umar ibn al-Khattab write their letters identically, like in al-Ahkam al-Sultaniyyah, the first volume, on page 122:

من عبدالله عمر بن الخطاب أمير المؤمنين إلى عبد الله بن قيس، سلام عليك، أما بعد

“From the slave of Allah `Umar ibn al-Khattab, commander of the faithful, to `Abdullah ibn Qays, peace be upon you.”

And the leader after him, also all of them wrote the exact same words, such as abu Ja`far al-Mansour, in al-Kamil-fil-Lughah, third volume 1490-1491:

من عبد الله عبد الله أمير المؤمنين، إلى محمد بن عبد الله، أما بعد

“From the slave of Allah `Abdullah, commander of the faithful, to Muhammad bin `Abdullah.”

In other words all of them except Abu Bakr al-Siddeeq wrote the exact same expressions, this is because Abu Bakr had a distinct station of being the actual successor, so he would write “Khalifatu Rasul-Allah” and the title of “Commander of the faithful” was not used in his time.

If `Ali had a distinct position and elevated status, why didn’t he use it to identify himself? For instance Shia claim he’s “The infallible leader” or they say “Wasi Rasul-Allah”, why did he not use these titles to show his special position?

So ponder.
