Prophet (saw): Go to Abubakr if you do not find me


The Messenger of Allah (صلی الله علیه و سلم): Go to Abubakr if you do not find me.

حَدَّثَنَا الْحُمَيْدِيُّ، وَمُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، قَالاَ حَدَّثَنَا إِبْرَاهِيمُ بْنُ سَعْدٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ جُبَيْرِ بْنِ مُطْعِمٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، قَالَ أَتَتِ امْرَأَةٌ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَأَمَرَهَا أَنْ تَرْجِعَ إِلَيْهِ‏.‏ قَالَتْ أَرَأَيْتَ إِنْ جِئْتُ وَلَمْ أَجِدْكَ كَأَنَّهَا تَقُولُ الْمَوْتَ‏.‏ قَالَ عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَمُ ‏ “‏ إِنْ لَمْ تَجِدِينِي فَأْتِي أَبَا بَكْرٍ ‏‏‏.‏

A woman came to the Prophet (ﷺ) who ordered her to return to him again. She said, “What if I came and did not find you?” as if she wanted to say, “If I found you dead?” The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “If you should not find me, go to Abu Bakr.”

Even Ali’s official letters reject the Shia Imamah


Salam,

Imami Shia claim `Ali had a distinct rank and position that no one else held, but did he clarify this in his official letters?

We find in Nahjul-Balagha, under the section on `Ali’s letters, on page 582 in a letter he sent to the Koufans as he left for Basarah:

مِنْ عَبْدِ اللهِ عَلِيّ أَمِيرِالْمُؤْمِنِينَ إلَى أَهْلِ الْكُوفَةِ، جَبْهَةِ الاَْنْصَارِ وَسَنَامِ الْعَرَبِ أَمَّا بَعْدُ

“From the slave of Allah `Ali, commander of the faithful, to the people of Kufah who are foremost among the supporters and chiefs of the Arabs.”

And in another letter he wrote regarding his Will:

هذَا مَا أَمَرَ بِهِ عَبْدُ اللهِ عَلِيُّ بْنُ أَبِي طَالِب أمِيرُالْمُؤْمِنِينَ فِي مَالِهِ، ابْتِغَاءَ وَجْهِ اللهِ، لِيُولِجَني بِهِ الْجَنَّةَ، وَيُعْطِيَني الاَْمَنَةَ

“This is what was ordered by the slave of Allah `Ali ibn abi Talib, commander of the faithful, regarding his property, seeking Allah’s face.”

On the other hand we see the leaders before him, such as `Umar ibn al-Khattab write their letters identically, like in al-Ahkam al-Sultaniyyah, the first volume, on page 122:

من عبدالله عمر بن الخطاب أمير المؤمنين إلى عبد الله بن قيس، سلام عليك، أما بعد

“From the slave of Allah `Umar ibn al-Khattab, commander of the faithful, to `Abdullah ibn Qays, peace be upon you.”

And the leader after him, also all of them wrote the exact same words, such as abu Ja`far al-Mansour, in al-Kamil-fil-Lughah, third volume 1490-1491:

من عبد الله عبد الله أمير المؤمنين، إلى محمد بن عبد الله، أما بعد

“From the slave of Allah `Abdullah, commander of the faithful, to Muhammad bin `Abdullah.”

In other words all of them except Abu Bakr al-Siddeeq wrote the exact same expressions, this is because Abu Bakr had a distinct station of being the actual successor, so he would write “Khalifatu Rasul-Allah” and the title of “Commander of the faithful” was not used in his time.

If `Ali had a distinct position and elevated status, why didn’t he use it to identify himself? For instance Shia claim he’s “The infallible leader” or they say “Wasi Rasul-Allah”, why did he not use these titles to show his special position?

So ponder.

Shia researcher & Debater admits the truth live on air


Salam `Aleykum,

I’ve first seen this `Iraqi Shia Doctor on “al-Mustaqillah” TV channel in 2008, where he was debating and advertising for the Shia Madhab in the daily TV episodes all throughout Ramadan.

Although polite and moderate in his approach, he used to be very critical of the Sahabah and very suspicious and often accused them of ill-intentions and conspiracies against the household.

Praise be to Allah, this Ramadan I was browsing youtube videos related to Tashayyu`, what I saw made tremble, the audacity and filth that is posted all around youtube, from Shia scholars claiming `Ali to be their Lord on the day of judgement, and others claiming the Imams turned sand into honey similar to the miracles of certain prophets, and stories of the Imams would revive the dead… all of it disgusting and is guaranteed to make you lose your appetite even in Ramadan… One video posted in 2014 caught my eye which said “Shia doctor is guided”, I saw the image of Sa`d al-Rifi`ee on the thumbnail but assumed the doctor was some unknown man who calls the show.

Praise be to Allah, I was wrong, and it turns out that after several years of debating, finally Dr.Sa`d al-Rifi`ee the respected `Iraqi Shia researcher admitted: “Abu Bakr may Allah be pleased with him held on to the Sunnah” and he said “`Umar bin al-Khattab was blessed by Allah may Allah be pleased with him and he made the conquests and spread the religion” and he said “`Uthman bin `Affan had many shortcomings but he was a good man…”

What happened is that his Rafidhi scholars couldn’t even wait until the episode ended, the Rafidhi `Ali al-Kourani called his cell-phone during the episode and humiliated him, he humiliated him because he made Du`a’ for the Sahabah, Sistani’s representative in Koufah also called him after the show and cursed him.

here’s the video:

Last words of Ali and Ibn Abass to Umar bin khatab during his final moments


بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

Words of Ali bin abi Talib (ra):

حَدَّثَنِي الْوَلِيدُ بْنُ صَالِحٍ، حَدَّثَنَا عِيسَى بْنُ يُونُسَ، حَدَّثَنَا عُمَرُ بْنُ سَعِيدِ بْنِ أَبِي الْحُسَيْنِ الْمَكِّيُّ، عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي مُلَيْكَةَ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ ـ رضى الله عنهما ـ قَالَ إِنِّي لَوَاقِفٌ فِي قَوْمٍ، فَدَعَوُا اللَّهَ لِعُمَرَ بْنِ الْخَطَّابِ وَقَدْ وُضِعَ عَلَى سَرِيرِهِ، إِذَا رَجُلٌ مِنْ خَلْفِي قَدْ وَضَعَ مِرْفَقَهُ عَلَى مَنْكِبِي، يَقُولُ رَحِمَكَ اللَّهُ، إِنْ كُنْتُ لأَرْجُو أَنْ يَجْعَلَكَ اللَّهُ مَعَ صَاحِبَيْكَ، لأَنِّي كَثِيرًا مِمَّا كُنْتُ أَسْمَعُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ كُنْتُ وَأَبُو بَكْرٍ وَعُمَرُ، وَفَعَلْتُ وَأَبُو بَكْرٍ وَعُمَرُ، وَانْطَلَقْتُ وَأَبُو بَكْرٍ وَعُمَرُ‏.‏ فَإِنْ كُنْتُ لأَرْجُو أَنْ يَجْعَلَكَ اللَّهُ مَعَهُمَا‏.‏ فَالْتَفَتُّ فَإِذَا هُوَ عَلِيُّ بْنُ أَبِي طَالِبٍ‏.‏

Narrated Ibn `Abbas:

While I was standing amongst the people who were invoking Allah for `Umar bin Al-Khattab who was lying (dead) on his bed, a man behind me rested his elbows on my shoulder and said, “(O `Umar!) May Allah bestow His Mercy on you. I always hoped that Allah will keep you with your two companions, for I often heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) saying, “I, Abu Bakr and `Umar were (somewhere). I, Abu Bakr and `Umar did (something). I, Abu Bakr and `Umar set out.’ So I hoped that Allah will keep you with both of them.” I turned back to see that the speaker was `Ali bin Abi Talib.

Statement of Ibn Abbas (ra):

حَدَّثَنَا الصَّلْتُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ، حَدَّثَنَا إِسْمَاعِيلُ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، حَدَّثَنَا أَيُّوبُ، عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي مُلَيْكَةَ، عَنِ الْمِسْوَرِ بْنِ مَخْرَمَةَ، قَالَ لَمَّا طُعِنَ عُمَرُ جَعَلَ يَأْلَمُ، فَقَالَ لَهُ ابْنُ عَبَّاسٍ ـ وَكَأَنَّهُ يُجَزِّعُهُ ـ يَا أَمِيرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ، وَلَئِنْ كَانَ ذَاكَ لَقَدْ صَحِبْتَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَأَحْسَنْتَ صُحْبَتَهُ، ثُمَّ فَارَقْتَهُ وَهْوَ عَنْكَ رَاضٍ، ثُمَّ صَحِبْتَ أَبَا بَكْرٍ فَأَحْسَنْتَ صُحْبَتَهُ، ثُمَّ فَارَقْتَهُ وَهْوَ عَنْكَ رَاضٍ، ثُمَّ صَحِبْتَ صَحَبَتَهُمْ فَأَحْسَنْتَ صُحْبَتَهُمْ، وَلَئِنْ فَارَقْتَهُمْ لَتُفَارِقَنَّهُمْ وَهُمْ عَنْكَ رَاضُونَ‏.‏ قَالَ أَمَّا مَا ذَكَرْتَ مِنْ صُحْبَةِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم وَرِضَاهُ، فَإِنَّمَا ذَاكَ مَنٌّ مِنَ اللَّهِ تَعَالَى مَنَّ بِهِ عَلَىَّ، وَأَمَّا مَا ذَكَرْتَ مِنْ صُحْبَةِ أَبِي بَكْرٍ وَرِضَاهُ، فَإِنَّمَا ذَاكَ مَنٌّ مِنَ اللَّهِ جَلَّ ذِكْرُهُ مَنَّ بِهِ عَلَىَّ، وَأَمَّا مَا تَرَى مِنْ جَزَعِي، فَهْوَ مِنْ أَجْلِكَ وَأَجْلِ أَصْحَابِكَ، وَاللَّهِ لَوْ أَنَّ لِي طِلاَعَ الأَرْضِ ذَهَبًا لاَفْتَدَيْتُ بِهِ مِنْ عَذَابِ اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ قَبْلَ أَنْ أَرَاهُ‏.‏ قَالَ حَمَّادُ بْنُ زَيْدٍ حَدَّثَنَا أَيُّوبُ، عَنِ ابْنِ أَبِي مُلَيْكَةَ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، دَخَلْتُ عَلَى عُمَرَ بِهَذَا‏.

Narrated Al-Miswar bin Makhrama:

When `Umar was stabbed, he showed signs of agony. Ibn `Abbas, as if intending to encourage `Umar, said to him, “O Chief of the believers! Never mind what has happened to you, for you have been in the company of Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) and you kept good relations with him and you parted with him while he was pleased with you. Then you were in the company of Abu Bakr and kept good relations with him and you parted with him (i.e. he died) while he was pleased with you. Then you were in the company of the Muslims, and you kept good relations with them, and if you leave them, you will leave them while they are pleased with you.” `Umar said, (to Ibn “Abbas), “As for what you have said about the company of Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) and his being pleased with me, it is a favor, Allah did to me; and as for what you have said about the company of Abu Bakr and his being pleased with me, it is a favor Allah did to me; and concerning my impatience which you see, is because of you and your companions. By Allah! If (at all) I had gold equal to the earth, I would have ransomed myself with it from the Punishment of Allah before I meet Him.”

Iranian Shia intellectual: We are Muslim due to sacrifices of Sahaba


Hassan Rahimpour Azghadi is a powerful figure in the Iranian regime. He makes some strong statements.

He says: “Whoever insults the companions of the Prophet (saw) because they are the companions of the Prophet (saw) becomes a murtad/apostate because it is an insult to the Prophet (saw). Everything we have is due to the Sahaba. If it wasn’t for the sacrifices of the companions of the Prophet (saw) we wouldn’t have been Muslims. If they had not fought in Badr, Uhud, Khaibar, Khandaq, if they had not left their properties in Makkah and if the the Ansar had not welcomed them to their homes, could the Prophet (saw) raise the flag of Islam on his own? Therefore, we are indebted to the Sahaba of the Prophet (saw) for everything we have today and forever.”

‘Shia infallible’ Imam al-Jawad admits to Abu Bakr’s virtues


al-Salamu `Aleykum,

We often stumble upon things in Arabic websites and forums which we don’t translate due to their numbers and size, yet I thought of translating something just for old time’s sake.
There’s a very weak narration in praise of Abu Bakr which is found in some books, such as al-Majrouhin by ibn Hibban, where Jibreel tells Muhammad (saw) to ask Abu Bakr:

فاقرأه من الله السلام وقل له يقول لك ربك أراض أنت عني

“The giver of peace greets him with peace and tells you (O Muhammad) to ask (Abu Bakr): Your Lord asks, are you pleased with me?”

Now some Shia decides to ask about this narration on “Aalulbayt Global Information Center” better known as “al-shia.org”, this is a renowned Shia website established by Sistani’s office as they themselves claim:

برعاية مكتب سماحة آية الله العظمى السيد علي الحسيني السيستاني ( دام ظلّه ) ، تمّ تأسيس مركز آل البيت ( عليهم السلام ) العالمي للمعلومات في مدينة قم ، وذلك في ذكرى عيد الغدير الأغر 18 ذي الحجة 1418 هـ ـ 1998 م

Here is the text of the Fatwa:

السؤال:
ما ردكم على : يا أبا بكر ، إن السلام يقرئك السلام ، ويقول : إني راضٍ عنك ، فهل أنت راضٍ عني ؟

الجواب:
نجيبك بهذه المحاورة التي وقعت بين يحيى بن أكثم في حضور المأمون العباس وبين الإمام محمد الجواد( عليه السلام ) :

إن ابن أكثم ناظر الامام أبا جعفر محمد بن علي الجواد ( عليه السلام ) مرة بحضور المأمون و جماعة كبيرة .

فقال يحيى بن أكثم : ما تقول يا بن رسول الله في الخبر الذي روي أن جبرائيل نزل على رسول الله ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) وقال : يا محمد إن الله يقرؤك السلام ، ويقول لك : سل أبا بكر هل هو راض عني ؟ فإني راض عنه .

فقال ( عليه السلام ) : ( لستُ بِمنكرٍ فضل أبي بكر ، ولكن يجب على صاحب هذه الخبر أن يأخذ مثال الخبر الذي قاله رسول الله ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) في حجة الوداع : قد كثرت عليَّ الكذابة وستكثر ، فمن كذَّب علي متعمداً فليتبوأ مقعده من النار .

فإذا أتاكم الحديث فاعرضوه على كتاب الله وسنتي ، فما واقع كتاب الله وسنتي فخذوا به ، وما خالف كتاب الله وسنتي فلا تأخذاو به .

وليس يوافق هذا الخبر كتاب الله ، قال الله تعالى : ( وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ وَنَعْلَمُ مَا تُوَسْوِسُ بِهِ نَفْسُهُ وَنَحْنُ أَقْرَبُ إِلَيْهِ مِنْ حَبْلِ الْوَرِيدِ ) ق : 16 .

فالله عزَّ وجل خفي عليه رضا أبي بكر من سخطه حتى سأل عن مكنون سره ؟! هذا مستحيل في العقول ) .

[Question: What is your response to: “O Abu Bakr, the giver of peace greets you with peace and says: I am pleased with you, are you pleased with me?”

Answer: We respond to you by this discussion between Yahya bin al-Aktham(Sunni scholar) and Imam Muhammad al-Jawad (as) in the presence of (Caliph) al-Ma’moun al-`Abbasi.

Yahya said: What say you O son of Rasul-Allah about the narration where Jibreel descends on Rasul-Allah (saw) and says: “O Muhammad, Allah greets you with peace and says: Ask Abu Bakr if he is pleased with me? As I am pleased with him.”

He (as) replied: I do not deny the virtue of Abu Bakr, but the narrator of this Hadith has to remember what Rasul-Allah (saw) said in his farewell sermon: “Many people lie about me and they will increase. Whoever attributes a lie to me intentionally, let him take his seat in hell.”

When you encounter a Hadith attributed to me, present it to Allah’s book and my Sunnah, whatever agrees with them take it, and whatever conflicts with Allah’s book and my Sunnah then reject it.

And this narration does not agree with Allah’s book, as Allah says: {And We have already created man and know what his soul whispers to him, and We are closer to him than [his] jugular vein}

Is Allah ignorant of Abu Bakr’s opinion of Him so that He may ask him about it!? That is impossible intellectually.]

First of all, the big disaster here is that al-Jawad says “I do not deny the virtue of Abu Bakr” which for extremist Rafidah who curse him day and night is like a kick to the face.

Secondly and what is more interesting, is the sheer weakness of the argument of al-Jawad, his rule of accepting and rejecting is what opposes the Qur’an and the Sunnah, yet in this narration he openly rejects the “Sunnah”. Then he says the Hadith does not agree with Allah’s book, as how can Allah ask him a question when Allah already knows what is in his heart? That is impossible!

Well it’s only impossible if you don’t know Allah’s book, since Allah in his book says:

{Allah will say, “O Jesus, Son of Mary, did you say to the people, ‘Take me and my mother as deities besides Allah?’}

And Allah says:

{And what is that in your right hand, O Moses?” – He said, “It is my staff; I lean upon it, and I bring down leaves for my sheep and I have therein other uses.”}

Rather this narration although weak, agrees perfectly with Allah’s book as He says:

{Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him}

Alas the Shia insist on fabricating these reports and attributing them to Ahlul-Bayt in order to insult the Companions of Rasul-Allah (saw).

The Book of Virtues of Hazrat Abu Bakr


بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

“The pure confirmation of al-Siddiq’s virtues” – written by Hani al-Tarabulsi al-Shafi`i

We have been asked to write a book for the purpose of introducing the English speaking Muslim community to the virtues and high status of the companion of Rasul-Allah (saw) and his successor, the first Caliph of Islam, Hazrat Abu Bakr ibn abi Quhafah. The reason for this project was due to the fact that we observed that the Muslim community in the west was not familiar with the companions generally, and we also noticed that people today tend to not make an effort to learn religion from authentic and traditional sources, they rather prefer to browse the internet for knowledge.

However, as the intelligent reader knows, the internet is filled with deviant writings of misguided individuals with sectarian agendas; it is a trap for any Muslim who has not fortified his beliefs with the Qur’an and Sunnah. So we wrote this book and we called it “The pure confirmation of al-Siddiq’s virtues” hoping that the believers can benefit from our effort by Allah’s will and our only intention is to seek Allah’s pleasure through this work.
