Shia scholar: Parts of Quran oppose Allah’s revelation


Ali bin Ibrahim al-Qummi author of the classical Twelver Shia commentary of the Quran, Tafsir al-Qummi, says in the introduction that some of the verse in the Quran oppose what Allah has revealed and he provides an example using Shia Hadiths attributed to Ahlulbayt.  This is just one of the tons of examples that he mentions in his Tafsir.

On page 5 of volume one where he is explaining the various contents of the Qur’an, he says some parts of it are abrogated and others are abrogating, some parts are explicit and others are vague, some parts of it are general and others are specific… then he says:

ومنه على خلاف ما انزل الله

“And some parts of it oppose what Allah has revealed.”

Then he even gives further examples as to what he means on page 10, he says:

واما ما هو كان على خلاف ما انزل الله فهو قوله ” كنتم خير امة اخرجت للناس تأمرون بالمعروف وتنهون عن المنكر وتؤمنون بالله ” فقال ابوعبدالله عليه السلام لقاري هذه الآية ” خير امة ” يقتلون امير المؤمنين والحسن والحسين بن علي عليه السلام؟ فقيل له وكيف نزلت يابن رسول الله؟ فقال انما نزلت ” كنتم خير ائمة اخرجت للناس

[As for what opposes what Allah revealed, then it is like his saying {You were the best nation brought forth for mankind, you enjoin what is good and forbid what is evil and believe in Allah} Abu `Abdillah (as) said to the one who recited this verse: “Best nation!?” They killed `Ali and Hasan and Husayn (as)!? They said: “Then how was it revealed O son of Rasul-Allah (saw)?” He said: It was revealed as {You were the best Imams brought forth for mankind}]

And he gives other examples of verses he believes were corrupted by the companions to hide the virtues of the Imams.

Shia scholar: The current Quran which was compiled by Uthman was changed


Shia scholar says that the Quran that was compiled by Uthman bin Affan (ra) which is the one have in our hands today was changed and corrupted but the Imams ordered the Shia to follow it out of taqqiyah  etc.

Akhbari Imami Twelver Shia scholar, al-Shaykh `Abdullah bin Salih al-Samahiji al-Bahrani says in his book “Muniyat al-Mumariseen – منية الممارسين”:

القران الذي الفه عثمان والذي بين ايدي الناس وقع به التغيير والائمة امروا شيعتهم به استصلاحا وتقية لئلا تقع الفتنة العظمى والمصيبة الكبرى في اصل دين الاسلام

[The Qur’an compiled by `Uthman and the one in people’s hands, was in fact changed. The Imams ordered their Shia to follow it as that was for the best, also out of Taqiyyah so as to avoid a great Fitnah and calamity in the foundations of the Islamic religion.]

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.

Shia scholar al-Fayd al-Kashani & his belief of Tahreef al-Quran


al-Salamu `Aleykum,

In this article I will discuss al-Fayd al-Kashani and his belief in Tahreef, I had seen that the Shia were debating this topic with some of Ahlul-Sunnah on their forum, and our popular Shi`ee brother Nader Zaveri wrote:

 

Only someone who is ignorant of Arabic or a purposeful liar would claim al-Fayd al-Kashani believed in tahrif after reading his introduction.

 

Here I assume he is talking about the famous introduction written by the Safavid scholar al-Kashani in which he discusses his opinion concerning this matter, the sixth introduction.

al-Kashani begins on page 40 by quoting the narrations from Tafseer al-Qummi & al-Kafi on how `Ali collected the Qur’an after Rasul-Allah (saw) passed away, and how the companions rejected his Mushaf. He also quotes narrations of how the companions of al-Sadiq recited the Qur’an in a manner contrary to the rest of the nation, then al-Sadiq tells them to recite it like the nation does until the Mahdi rises and teaches people the truth.

al-Tabrasi author of al-Ihtijaj & his belief on Tahrif Quran


al-Salamu `Aleykum,

First of all, we take the following quotes from the Shia books regarding the authority of this book called “al-Ihtijaj” which was authored by the Imami scholar abu Mansour Ahmad bin `Ali bin abi Talib al-Tabrasi (died around 600 hijri)

al-Majlisi said:

 وكتاب الاحتجاج وإن كان أكثر أخباره مراسيل لكنه من الكتب المعروفة، وقد أثنى السيد ابن طاوس على الكتاب وقد أخذ عنه أكثر المتأخرين

[And the book al-Ihtijaj, even if most of its narrations are Maraseel yet it is from the popular books, and al-Sayyid ibn Tawous praised it, and the majority of late scholars take knowledge from it.]

al-Khawansari said:

 كتاب الاحتجاج معتبر معروف بين الطائفة، مشتمل على كل ما اطلع عليه من احتجاجات النبي والأئمة، بل كثير من أصحابهم الأمجاد مع جملة من الأشقياء المخالفين

[The book al-Ihtijaj is authoritative and popular among our sect, it contains all the arguments of the Prophet and Imams and their noble companions against a group of evil ones.]

Researcher of “al-Ihtijaj” Sayyid Muhammad Baqir al-Khorasan said in the introduction:

الكتاب بمجموعه موضع اعتماد الأعلام والباحثين، بالرغم من أن أكثر أحاديثه مراسيل، إلا أن الثقة الكبيرة التي يتمتع بها مؤلف الكتاب، زرعت في نفوس المؤلفين الاعتماد عليه، والنقل عنه دون تمحيص وتحقيق، وتدقيق في أسناد الأخبار والأحاديث

[The book in its entirety is relied upon by the scholars and researchers, even though most of its narrations are Mursal. However, the great trust this author has, it planted in the souls of all authors the ability of relying on it, and quoting from it without verification and without researching the chains of its narrations.]

We don’t really care for its narrations, we only care for what the author abu Mansour al-Tabrasi himself says. We will quote what al-Majlisi quoted from the book al-Ihtijaj in his own book Bihar al-Anwar 89/43. Continue reading
