Shia belief: Imams superior to Prophets – Imamate higher than Prophethood


One of the main beliefs of the Twelver Shia sect is that their concept of Imamate is superior to Prophethood and the twelve people they claim to be their Imams are higher in rank than all the Prophets of Allah (علیهم سلام) except the last Prophet Muhammad (saw).

We have taken all these quotes directly from the famous Twelver Shia website:

“The Shi’a further believe that the twelve Imams of the House of Prophet Muhammad have the rank higher than that of ALL the messengers (be Imam or not) except Prophet Muhammad (S).”

A Shi’ite Encyclopedia Imamat versus Prophethood Part 1
https://www.al-islam.org/shiite-encyclopedia-ahlul-bayt-dilp-team/imamat-versus-prophethood-part-1

“…which proves that the office of Imamate, with the ability to exercise inner influence on the ummah in order to advance on the inner path, was a higher and more exalted office than his prophethood.”

“The rank of imamate is higher than that of general prophethood”

“Since prophethood and the title of Khalil (Friend) did not apparently warrant a higher rank, the office of Imamate was the only office of a higher order to which even a Prophet of Allah could be entrusted.”

“The Imamate is a stage lower than the highest stage of prophethood, but it is a stage higher than all other ranks of prophethood. Since ‘Ali was raised to the stage higher than prophethood and was one in spirit with the Holy Prophet, he was endowed with the office of the Imamate and was thus superior to all previous prophets.”

“The rank of the Imamate is higher than the rank of general prophethood, but lower than special prophethood. The last Prophet is the highest stage of special prophethood.”

“Since the Holy Prophet was superior to all other prophets, ‘Ali was also superior to them” 

“Therefore, ‘Ali Ibn Abu Talib was definitely superior to the prophets,…”

Imam al-Ridha dissociates himself from the Shia & Prays against them


Powerful Production that can serve Dawah purpose and can also be used for refuting the Shi’a beliefs.

Imam Ali al-Redha disassociates himself from the Shia and prays to Allah against them because they have exaggerated the status of Ahlul-Bait and claim for them things which Ahlul-Bait never claimed for themselves.

Imami Shia say: Prophet Adam (as) did not testify to Wilayah of 12 Imams


Sura TaaHaa Ayah 115 “And certainly We took a covenant from Adam before, but he forgot; and We did not find in him any firm resolve.”

Imam Muhammad Baqir (asws) said, “And certainly We gave a covenant to Adam before, but he forgot” refers to the taking of an oath from Adam (as) regarding Muhammad (saw) and the Imams (asws) after Him but Adam (as) was negligent in His oath. Adam (as) did not have the “firm resolve” to recognize the true status of Muhammad (saw) and the Imams (asws). The reason behind giving the title of Olil Azm (owners of the “firm resolve”) to the five Olil Azm messengers is that Allah took an oath from Them regarding Muhammad (saw), His Successors and al Mahdi (atfs). They, the five Olil Azm, testified to this oath with “a firm resolve” they accepted the oath as the truth.”

(Al Kafi vol 1 pg 416, Tafseer Qummi Second Edition pg 65)

Abu Hamza narrates Imam Muhammad Baqir (asws) said, “Allah took a covenant from the prophets and said, “Am I not your Lord?”

The prophets replied, “Yes. You are”.

Allah asked, “Is Muhammad (saw) not My Messenger? Is Ali (asws) not Ameerul Momineen (asws)? Are His Successors not the authorities appointed by Me? Are They not the keepers of My knowledge? Is al Mahdi (atfs) not the one with whom I will support My religion? Is He not the one through whom I will spread My government? Is he not the one through whom I will avenge My enemies? Is he not the one through whom the people will worship Me, willingly or unwillingly?”

The prophets replied, “We believe in this covenant and we testify to this, O’our Lord”.

Imam Muhammad Baqir (asws) then said, “Adam (as) did not deny this covenant but He did not testify to it. Therefore the religion was announced through the five messengers who testified in al Mahdi (atfs). However Adam (as) did not have the “firm resolve” to testify. This is the meaning of this ayah.”

(Tafseer al Burhan vol 5 pg 191, Taweel al Ayat al Dhahira pg 313)

Sura Furqaan Ayah 26 “The kingdom on that day shall rightly belong to the Beneficent Allah, and a hard day shall it be for the unbelievers.”

Ali bin Asbaat narrates from some of Our companions, “The kingdom” belongs to Allah on “that day” and on every other day but the above ayah refers to the rising of al Mahdi (atfs) when everyone will worship Allah.”

(Taweel al Ayat al Dhahira pg 369)

Shia Tafsir: Previous nations were destroyed for rejecting Wilayah of Ali


According to the Quran previous nations were destroyed because of rejecting Allah, His signs, His Message and the Prophets (as) who were sent to them. For example, Allah says in Surah Fusilat:

But if they turn away, then say, “I have warned you of a thunderbolt like the thunderbolt [that struck] ‘Aad and Thamud.

[That occurred] when the messengers had come to them before them and after them, [saying], “Worship not except Allah.” They said, “If our Lord had willed, He would have sent down the angels, so indeed we, in that with which you have been sent, are disbelievers.” (Quran 41:13-14)

However, according to Shia Tafsir the previous nations were destroyed because of rejecting Wilayah of Ali.

We read in Shia tafsir Miratul Anwar:

ولا يخفي ان هلاك الامم كان بسبب ترك  الولاية

It should be clear that the (previous) nations) were destroyed because of rejecting Wilayah [of Ali]

Tafsir Miratul Anwar, p. 188 (Scan in the end)

We read in the same book on page 161:

من سائر الآيات المشتملة على الصيحة مع ان الهلاك بالصيحة ايضا في الامم السالفة كان لعدم قبول الولاية

All the verses in which the ‘blast’ and in which the destruction of the previous nations with the ‘blast’ is mentioned, that was due to not accepting wilayah.

Some of such verses are:

[011:067]  The (mighty) Blast overtook the wrong-doers, and they lay prostrate in their homes before the morning,-

[011:094]  When Our decree issued, We saved Shu’aib and those who believed with him, by (special) mercy from Ourselves: But the (mighty) blast did seize the wrong- doers, and they lay prostrate in their homes by the morning,-

[015:073]  But the (mighty) Blast overtook them before morning,

[023:041]  Then the Blast overtook them with justice, and We made them as rubbish of dead leaves (floating on the stream of Time)! So away with the people who do wrong!

al-Kulayni’s best joke and contradiction in al-Kafi


al-Salamu `Aleykum,

Check out this funny man’s contradiction.

Muhammad ibn Ya’qub al-Kulayni narrated in al-Kafi vol.1 pg.261:

أن الأئمة عليهم السلام يعلمون علم ما كان وما يكون وانه لا يخفى عليهم الشئ صلوات الله عليهم

-1-

أحمد بن محمد ومحمد بن يحيى، عن محمد بن الحسين، عن إبراهيم بن إسحاق الأحمر، عن عبد الله بن حماد، عن سيف التمار قال كنا مع أبي عبد الله عليه السلام جماعة من الشيعة في الحجر فقال: علينا عين؟ فالتفتنا يمنة ويسرة فلم نر أحدا فقلنا: ليس علينا عين فقال: ورب الكعبة ورب البنية – ثلاث مرات – لو كنت بين موسى والخضر لأخبرتهما أني أعلم منهما ولأنبئتهما بما ليس في أيديهما، لان موسى والخضر عليهما السلام أعطيا علم ما كان ولم يعطيا علم ما يكون وما هو كائن حتى تقوم الساعة وقد ورثناه من رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وراثة

Chapter: That the Imams have the Knowledge of What Was and  What Will Be, and That Nothing Is Unknown to Them, may the blessings of Allah be upon them.

-1-

Ahmad ibn Muhammad and Muhammad ibn Yahya have narrated from Muhammad ibn al-Husayn from Ibrahim ibn Ishaq al-Ahmar from ‘Abd Allah ibn Hammad from Sayf al-Tammar who has said that he with a group of Shi‘a were in the presence of abu ‘Abd Allah (as), in a room so the Imam (as) said: “Are there eyes watching us?” We then looked right and left and did not see anyone. We said, “No eye is watching over us.” The Imam (as), said, “I swear by the Lord of the Ka‘ba. I swear by the Lord of the House.” He said so three times. “Had I been with Moses and al-Khidr I would have told them that I had more knowledge than they did and would have informed them of that of which they had no knowledge. This is because Moses and al-Khidr were given the knowledge of what was in the past and they were not given the knowledge of what will be in future or what will exist up to the Day of Judgment, while we have inherited all of it (knowledge) from the Messenger of Allah as heirs.”

Ali and the Prophet are unified in their Status and Spirits, spiritually and apparently.


بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

Khomeini quotes agreeing and praising his ‘sheikh’:  And our teacher in knowing the Lord, the knowledgable, the complete, shah abaadi, may Allah make permanent his shade over his ‘mureed’ [followers of his], has said:-

If Ali (as) appeared before the Prophet (may Allaahs peace be on him and his family), the Sharia would have appeared just as how it appeared with the Prophet (may Allaahs peace be on him and his family), and he [Ali] would have been a sent Prophet! That is because they [Ali & the Prophet] are unified in their spirits and their status; spiritually and apparently.

The word ‘Rabb رب’ mentioned in the Quran is the Prophet or Ali


By Kalaam
Posted by 13S2010

We read in Quran

وجوه يومئذ ناضرة ‏ الى ربها ناظرة

Some faces, that Day, will beam (in brightness and beauty);- Looking towards their Lord;

[075:022-023]

Ali Namazi Shahrodi says in Athbat wilayat takwiniya:

“Perhaps Rabb in this verse refers to Muhammad (S) or Ali (a.s), the momineen will be looking towards them on the day of judgement.”
