Were ALL the 12 ‘Shia’ Imams Murdered?


-=[Were ALL the Twelve ‘Shia’ Imams Murdered?]

Al-Mufeed said in Tasheeh Al-I’itiqadaat p.131-132:

“As for what Abu Ja’afar (ra) (Ibn Babawayh) said about the passing of our Prophet and Imams (as) through poison and murder, some of it occurred and some did not. What is certain is that the Commander of the Faithful (Ali), Al-Hasan, and Al-Hussain (as) left this world through murder and did not die naturally. As for those that passed away due to poison, it occurred to Musa bin Ja’afar (as) and it is likely that it occurred to Al-Redha (as), even though there is doubt in this. There is no way to declare that any of the others were poisoned, assassinated, or murdered. Such reports are a matter of emotional invocation and cannot be ascertained.”

For those that aren’t aware, most Twelver Shias today seem certain that all the Imams were killed/poisoned.

As we can see from the quote above, the most significant Shi’i historian of all time, Al-Mufeed, rejects this belief.

Jafar Sadiq narrates marriage of Umm Kulthum bint Ali with Omar bin Khatab


For more sources check this link.

Marriage of Sayyida Umm Kulthoom bint Ali (daughter of Ali and Fatima) with Ameer al-Mumineen ‘Umar as reported by Ja’far al-Sadiq:

حَدَّثَنَا سَعِيدٌ قَالَ: نا عَبْدُ الْعَزِيزِ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ، عَنْ جَعْفَرِ بْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، أَنَّ عُمَرَ خَطَبَ إِلَى عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَبِي طَالِبٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ ابْنَتَهُ أُمَّ كُلْثُومٍ، فَقَالَ عَلِيٌّ: إِنَّمَا حَبَسْتُ بَنَاتِي عَلَى بَنِي جَعْفَرٍ. فَقَالَ: أَنْكِحْنِيهَا، فَوَاللَّهِ مَا عَلَى الْأَرْضِ رَجُلٌ أَرْصَدَ مِنْ حُسْنِ عِشْرَتِهَا مَا أَرْصَدْتُ. فَقَالَ عَلِيٌّ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ: قَدْ أَنْكَحْتُكَهَا. فَجَاءَ عُمَرُ إِلَى مَجْلِسِ الْمُهَاجِرِينَ بَيْنَ الْقَبْرِ وَالْمِنْبَرِ، وَكَانَ الْمُهَاجِرُونَ يَجْلِسُونَ ثَمَّ، وَعَلِيٌّ، وَعَبْدُ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنُ عَوْفٍ، وَالزُّبَيْرُ، وَعُثْمَانُ، وَطَلْحَةُ، وَسَعْدٌ، فَإِذَا كَانَ الْعَشِيُّ يَأْتِي عُمَرَ الْأَمْرُ مِنَ الْآفَاقِ وَيَقْضِي فِيهِ، جَاءَهُمْ وَأَخْبَرَهُمْ ذَلِكَ، وَاسْتَشَارَهُمْ كُلَّهُمْ، فَقَالَ: رَفِّئُونِي. قَالُوا: بِمَ يَا أَمِيرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ؟ قَالَ: بِابْنَةِ عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَبِي طَالِبٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ. ثُمَّ أَنْشَأَ يُحَدِّثُهُمْ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ: «كُلُّ نَسَبٍ وَسَبَبٍ مُنْقَطِعٌ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ، إِلَّا نَسَبِي وَسَبِبِي»

Ja’far al-Sadiq from from his father Muhammad al-Baqir that Umar (ra) sent marriage proposal to ‘Ali (ra) for his daughter Umm Kulthoom, so ‘Ali said, “I have left my daughters for the sons of Ja’far (ra).” ‘Umar said “Marry her to me O ‘Ali for there is no one on the face of the earth who is more committed than me for her companionship.” So ‘Ali said, “Now I married her to you.” So ‘Umar came to the assembly of Muhajiroon between the Qabr and Minbar (of the Prophet sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam), where ‘Ali, ‘Uthman, Zubair, Talha and ‘Abdur Rahman b. Awf would sit and ‘Umar would take consultation from them about different matters, and said, “Congratulate me and congratulate him.” They said, “For what O Ameer al-Mu’mineen?” He replied, “For the daughter of ‘Ali b. Abi Talib.” Then he started to inform them and said, “The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) said, “Every lineage and means would disconnect on the day of judgement except my lineage and my means.”

[Sunan (520) by Saeed b. Mansoor, Fazail as-Sahaba (1068) by Imam Ahmad, Tabaqat (8/348) by Ibn Sa’d, Al-Mustadrak (4684) by Imam Hakim, al-Mu’jam al-Kabeer (3/41) and al-Awsat (5606), Al-Bayhaqi in Sunan (13393), Al-Shariah (1713), al-‘Ilal (2/190) by Imam al-Daarqutni etc]

From Ja’far Al-Sadiq this has been heard by several scholars from his companions including:

1. Anas b. ‘Ayaz al-Laithi

2. Sufyan b. ‘Uyaina

3. Wuhaib b. Khalid

4. Abdul ‘Aziz b. Muhammad

5. Muhammad b. Ishaq

So Imam Jafar has reported it several times that’s why many different people heard from him.

Who was this blessed Companion of the Prophet ﷺ ?


1. There was a Meccan man who was born 6 years after Prophet Muhamad ﷺ. He lived a respectful & honorable life, and when Muhammad ﷺ began to preach Islam in Mecca, he was one of the first individuals from Quraish to accept Islam, due to the efforts of the earliest Meccan Muslims

2. He accepted Islam in his 30s in Mecca, when Muslims were a persecuted minority with no socio-political affluence. He eventually reached such a respected status with the Prophet ﷺ and the Muslims that he was given the honor of marrying a daughter of the Prophet ﷺ, Himself.

3. When the persecution of Muslims got out of hand, he was among the first to migrate to Abyssinia (along with his wife, the Prophet’s daughter) in hope of a safer and more tolerant setting, to freely practice Islam.

Shia scholars disguised themselves as Sunnis to mislead people


Original post link

Salam,

Here are Twelver Shia scholars talking about their comrades, who of course used Taqiyyah to convert Sunnies.

 

وأن إظهاره أحد المذهبين تقية واستصلاح وقد وقع مثله في رجالنا كثيـراً مما يطــــــــــــــــــول تعدادهم ممن كانوا يتظاهرون بالشافعية وغيره.
الكشكول – البحراني 3/ 19

[And he (i.e Shia scholar) when he would present himself as being from one of the two Madhabs, he did so out of Taqiyyah and to win them over. This kind of thing happens a lot with our scholars (i.e Shia scholars) and it’s too long to count the examples of those who claimed to be Shafi`i among others.]

Al-Bahrani – al-Kashkoul 3/19.

 

وكان يتحنف ويفتي على مذهب أبي حنيفة نعمان بن ثابت الكوفي تقية.
معجم رجال الحديث – الخوئي 5/ 54

[And he (i.e Shia scholar) used to identify himself as Hanafi and gave verdicts according to the Madhab of abi Hanifah Nu`man bin Thabit al-Kufi out of Taqiyyah.]

Mu`jam Rijal – al-Khu’i 5/54

 

والظاهر ان الضعف باعتبار القضاء من جهة العامة ويمكن ان يكون للتقية ولسهولة نشر اخبار اهل البيت (عليهم السلام) كما فعله جماعة من اصحابنا
خاتمة المستدرك – الطبرسي 5/ 33

[What’s apparent is that they weakened him due to his verdicts concerning the mainstream Muslims (Sunnies), this could be out of Taqiyyah as it facilitates the spreading of Ahlul-Bayt’s (as) narrations as a group of our companions (i.e scholars) did.]

Khatimat al-Mustadrak – Tabrasi 5/33

 

وكان على الظاهر يتفقه على مذهب الشافعي ويرى رأي الشيعة الامامية في البــــاطن.
الفهرست – الطوسي ص208

[He apparently was a jurist of the Shafi`i school but he believed in the opinion of the Shia internally.]

Al-Fehrest – Tusi 208

 

كنت في الشام مظهراً أني على مذهب الشافعي.
روضات الجنات – الخونساري 7/ 71

[When in Sham (Syria) I showed that I was a Shafi`i.]

Rawdat al-Jannat – Khawansari 7/71.

 

[كــــــــــــان يظهر خلاف عقيدة الإمامية مداراة واستصلاحاً لرعيته].
أعيان الشيعة – الأمين 5/ 182

[He (i.e Shia scholar) used to appear as an opponent of the Imami creed to be friendly and win-over his followers.]

A`yan al-Shi`ah – Amin 5/182

 

[قـــال بعض علمائنا أنه زيدي , وقـــال بعضهم أنه كان إمامي إثنى عشري كما يظهر من تأليفاته , و أنه لما كان يدعو الفرق المختلفة في المذاهب إلى نصرته , أظهر بعض الأمور التي توجب ائتلاف القلوب خوفاً من أن ينصرف الناس عنه].
تنقيح المقال في علم الرجال – المامقاني 20/ 100

[Some of our scholars labeled him as Zaydi, others said he’s Twelver as his books show. Seeing as though he called the various sects to support him, he would display outwardly things to make them friendlier so they wouldn’t abandon him.]

Tanqih al-Maqal – Mamaqani 20/100

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).
