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:

Note: The rest of the books that cover the scholars from the Maliki, Hanbali and Shafi’i schools are the following:

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.

Imam al-Kadhim: First act of kindness is to give good names to your children


قال امام موسی کاظم: اول ما یبر الرجل ولده أن یسمیه باسم حسن فلیحسن أحدکم اسم ولده

Imam Mûsâ ibn Ja‘far al-Kazim: The very first act of kindness of a man towards his son is to give him a good name, so keep good names for your children.

al-Kafi v.6, p.18, no.3
Wasail Shia vol.15, pg.122

Now interesting fact is that al-Kadhim (rah) named his daughter “Aisha”.

Other Ahlulbayt, including Ali, Hasan, Husain, Jafar etc whom the Shias supposedly follow named their sons Abubakr, Umar, Uthman and their daughters Aisha. Please read:

Prophet (saw): “Don’t harm me by harming Aisha”.


بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ عَبْدِ الْوَهَّابِ، حَدَّثَنَا حَمَّادٌ، حَدَّثَنَا هِشَامٌ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ،، قَالَ كَانَ النَّاسُ يَتَحَرَّوْنَ بِهَدَايَاهُمْ يَوْمَ عَائِشَةَ قَالَتْ عَائِشَةُ فَاجْتَمَعَ صَوَاحِبِي إِلَى أُمِّ سَلَمَةَ، فَقُلْنَ يَا أُمَّ سَلَمَةَ، وَاللَّهِ إِنَّ النَّاسَ يَتَحَرَّوْنَ بِهَدَايَاهُمْ يَوْمَ عَائِشَةَ، وَإِنَّا نُرِيدُ الْخَيْرَ كَمَا تُرِيدُهُ عَائِشَةُ، فَمُرِي رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم أَنْ يَأْمُرَ النَّاسَ أَنْ يُهْدُوا إِلَيْهِ حَيْثُ مَا كَانَ أَوْ حَيْثُ مَا دَارَ، قَالَتْ فَذَكَرَتْ ذَلِكَ أُمُّ سَلَمَةَ لِلنَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَتْ فَأَعْرَضَ عَنِّي، فَلَمَّا عَادَ إِلَىَّ ذَكَرْتُ لَهُ ذَاكَ فَأَعْرَضَ عَنِّي، فَلَمَّا كَانَ فِي الثَّالِثَةِ ذَكَرْتُ لَهُ فَقَالَ ‏”‏ يَا أُمَّ سَلَمَةَ لاَ تُؤْذِينِي فِي عَائِشَةَ، فَإِنَّهُ وَاللَّهِ مَا نَزَلَ عَلَىَّ الْوَحْىُ وَأَنَا فِي لِحَافِ امْرَأَةٍ مِنْكُنَّ غَيْرِهَا ‏”‏‏.‏

Narrated Hisham’s father:
The people used to send presents to the Prophet (ﷺ) on the day of `Aisha’s turn. `Aisha said, “My companions (i.e. the other wives of the Prophet) gathered in the house of Um Salama and said, “O Um Salama! By Allah, the people choose to send presents on the day of `Aisha’s turn and we too, love the good (i.e. presents etc.) as `Aisha does. You should tell Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) to tell the people to send their presents to him wherever he may be, or wherever his turn may be.”

Um Salama said that to the Prophet and he turned away from her, and when the Prophet (ﷺ) returned to her (i.e. Um Salama), she repeated the same, and the Prophet (ﷺ) again turned away, and when she told him the same for the third time, the Prophet (ﷺ) said, “O Um Salama! Don’t harm me by harming `Aisha, for by Allah, the Divine Inspiration never came to me while I was under the blanket of any woman amongst you except her.”

The oppression of Ali bin abi Talib


Assalamu Alaikum,

One of the main themes of Rafidism is the “oppression of Ahlul Bayt”. Ali (RA), according to the Rafida, was oppressed after the Prophet (SAWS) died. He was denied his rightful Khilafa, his wife was beaten up, his wife’s inheritance was stolen (Fadak) – amongst other things.

The Rafida go to great lengths to bewail, mourn and eulogise this severe oppression.

The Rafida also pride themselves on being a people of “logic”. They berate the Ash’aris and their literalism, their backwardness, and take pride in their use of ‘Aql and Ijtihad in interpreting the Qur’an and Ahadith.

So, I ask the Rafida to “logically” interpret the following facts about ‘Ali (RA), and to reconcile them with their belief in his oppression:

– Ali (RA) married 8 women.

http://mezan.net/mawsouat/ali/zawjateh.html

– Ali (RA) had 28 children.

http://mezan.net/mawsouat/ali/zawjateh.html

Taking the above facts into account:

– Logically – does a man who marries 8 times and has 28 children sound like he lived in oppression?

– Can a poor and oppressed man marry and maintain 8 women? – even if you don’t marry them at the same time

– Can a poor and oppressed man maintain and support 28 children? – let’s assume most of them make it to adulthood

– Where did ‘Ali get the money for this? Was he a known as a rich man?

– So where did he get this money?

Majlisi on Zayd ibn ‘Alī


Salam alaikum.

In his “Miratul uqul” (2/278) Majlisi wrote:

و اعلم أن الأخبار في حال زيد مختلفة، ففي بعضها ما يدل على أنه ادعى الإمامة فيكون كافرا، و في كثير منها أنه كان يدعو إلى الرضا من آل محمد

“And know that narrations about condition of Zayd are different, and in some of them is proof that he claimed imamate and become kaafir, and in many of them stated that he was calling to ar-Ridah from family of Mohammad..”.
