Hadith of the Bird (al-Ṭayr) Analysis


Detailed analysis and takhrij of the chains of the Hadith of the Bird or Ḥadīth al-Ṭayr.

The narration goes like this:

Anas Ibn Malik narrated: I was serving the Messenger of Allah and a roasted bird was presented to the Messenger of Allah. He said, “O Allah, bring me the most beloved of your creation to share this bird with me.” I said, “O Allah, make it a man from the Ansar.” Ali, May Allah be pleased with him, came and I said to him, “The Messenger of Allah is engaged in something.” He came again and I said, “The Messenger of Allah is engaged in something.” He came again and the Messenger of Allah said, “Open the door,” and so he entered and the Messenger of Allah said, “What is your business, O Ali?” He said, “This is the third time I came by and on each occasion Anas sent me away. He claimed you were engaged in something.” He said, “Why did you do what you did?” I said, “O Messenger of Allah, I heard your supplication and I liked it to be someone from my people.” The Messenger of Allah said, “The man loves his people.”

Shia Preacher Mahdi Modarresi Debates a Sunni Researcher


Interesting Twitter discussion between the Sunni researcher Farid @Farid_BHR (now @Farid_0v) and the famous Shia preacher Sayed Mahdi Modarresi, the founder of the biggest Shia TV Channel in English language (Ahlulbayt TV).

Topic of the discussion: The alleged attack on the house of Sayyida Fatima.

Note: The Shia preacher refers to Prophet’s (ﷺ) closest friends Abubakr Siddiq and Omar as “idols” as well as saying they have special place in hell.
Note: The full screenshots are at the end of the page.

It all started from here:


“I regret ordering the ambush against the house of Fatima!” The proverbial smoking gun and self-incriminating confession of the culprit behind the attack..


An example of a Shia scholar quoting one hadith from MANY sources, when in reality they all go back to ONE weak narrator: Ulwan bin Dawud. Continue reading

Who was Ka’ab al-Ahbar?


Ka’ab al-Ahbar was a notable convert to Islam from a Jewish background. The Sahaba, companions of the Prophet (saw), used to ask him about the old tales of Bani Isra’eel (Isra’iliyyat) because he knew the old Jewish history.

It is important to be aware that Ka’ab wasn’t a major or significant hadith narrator. There are no narrations of him in Sahihayn (Bukhari & Muslim).

Fabricated Hadith of Twelve Imams from Yanabi al-Muwadda and Fara’id al-Simtayn


Original post link

This issue has been brought up quite a few times in the past year, so it deserves a post.

The author of Yanabi’ Al-Mawada is quoting the author of Fara’id Al-Simtain.

Shias always quote this hadith from Fara’id Al-Simtain to prove that Sunnis believe that the Twelve Imams of Ahlulbayt are infallible and are appointed by Allah.

The hadith:

عبد الله بن عباس ، قال : سمعت رسول الله (صلّى الله عليه وسلّم) يقول : أنا وعليّ والحسن والحسين وتسعة من ولد الحسين مطهّرون معصومون

“Abdullah bin Abbas said: I heard the Messenger of Allah peace be upon him say: Me, Ali, Al-Hasan, Al-Hussain, and nine of Al-Hussain’s children are purified infallibles.”

However, upon returning to the chain of the hadith, these are the names we find:

أنبأني الإمام بدر الدين محمد بن أبي الكرم (٢) عبد الرزاق بن أبي بكر بن حيدر ، أخبرني القاضي فخر الدين محمد بن خالد الحنيفي الأبهري كتابة ، قال : أنبأنا السيد الإمام ضياء الدين فضل الله بن عليّ أبو الرضا الراوندي إجازة ، أخبرنا السيد أبو الصمصام ذو الفقار بن محمد بن معد الحسني ، أنبأنا الشيخ أبو جعفر الطوسي ، أنبأنا أبو عبد الله محمد بن محمد بن النعمان ، وأبو عبد الله الحسين بن عبيد الله ، وأبو الحسين جعفر بن الحسين ابن حسكة القمّي ، وأبو زكريا محمد بن سليمان الحرّاني ، قالوا كلّهم : أنبأنا الشيخ أبو جعفر محمد بن عليّ بن بابويه القمّي(٣) قال : أخبرنا علي بن [ محمد بن ] عبد الله الوراق الرازي ، قال : أخبرنا سعد بن  عبد الله ، قال : أنبأنا الهيثم بن أبي مسروق النهدي عن الحسين بن علوان ، عمرو بن خالد ، عن سعد بن طريف ، عن الأصبغ بن نباتة : عن عبد الله بن عباس

As we can see, we have a group of narrators narrating from Abu Ja’afar Muhammad bin Ali ibn Babawayh Qummi aka Al-Saduq, the famous Shia hadith compiler.

The Shia editor, Mohammad Baqir Al-Mahmoodi admits this. He says:

 رواه في أواخر الباب : (٢٤) من كتاب إكمال الدين

“He (Al-Saduq) narrated this in the end of chapter 24 in Ikmal Al-Deen.”

In conclusion, this hadith that Shias have been spreading is from their books, and it is not a Sunni hadith.

Ali in Nahjul Balagha: Prophet (saw) left behind the Quran


Salam,

I decided to start reading Nahj-ul-Balaghah, see if I can find useful things, I found them right in the first sermon where `Ali agrees with our understanding of Hadith al-Thaqalayn, that the only means of guidance left behind by the Prophet (saw) is Allah’s book:

ثُمَّ اخْتَارَ سُبْحَانَهُ لِمحَمَّد صلى الله عليه لِقَاءَهُ، وَرَضِيَ لَهُ مَا عِنْدَهُ، فَأَكْرَمَهُ عَنْ دَارِالدُّنْيَا، وَرَغِبَ بِهَ عَنْ مُقَارَنَةِ البَلْوَى، فَقَبَضَهُ إِلَيْهِ كَرِيماً صَلَّى اللهُ علَيهِ و آلِهوَخَلَّفَ فِيكُمْ مَا خَلَّفَتِ الاْنْبيَاءُ في أُمَمِها، إذْ لَم يَتْرُكُوهُمْ هَمَلاً، بِغَيْر طَريق واضِح، ولاَعَلَمٍ قَائِم. كِتَابَ رَبِّكُمْ [فِيكُمْ:] مُبَيِّناً حَلاَلَهُ وَحَرامَهُ، وَفَرَائِضَهُ وَفَضَائِلَهُ، وَنَاسِخَهُ وَمَنْسُوخَهُ، وَرُخَصَهُ وَعَزَائِمَهُ، وَخَاصَّهُ وَعَامَّهُ، وَعِبَرَهُ وَأَمْثَالَهُ، وَمُرْسَلَهُ وَمَحْدُودَهُ، وَمُحْكَمَهُ وَمُتَشَابِهَهُ، مُفَسِّراً جُمَلَهُ، وَمُبَيِّناً غَوَامِضَهُ.

[…Then Allah chose for Muhammad (saw) to meet Him, selected him for His own nearness, regarded him too dignified to remain in this world and decided to remove him from this place of trial. So He drew him towards Himself with honor. He (saw) left among you the same thing other Prophets left among their peoples, because Prophets do not leave them untended without a clear path and a standing ensign, namely the Book of your Creator clarifying its permission and prohibitions, its obligations and discretion…] (Sermon 1)

He doesn’t mention that the Prophet (saw) left behind the Qur’an and Ahlul-Bayt as guidance, only the Qur’an and this was the way of previous prophets.
