Shia general rule for the Sahaba

The default stance or the general rule in the Imami Twelver Shia sect regarding the companions of the Prophet (saw).

Renowned Shia scholar `Ali al-Namazi a-Shahroudi says in his book “Mustadrakat `Ilm-ul-Rijal” 1/67:

[We conclude from the big quantity of narrations declaring that all companions are apostates except three or four, that the general rule for every companion who remained alive after the Prophet (saw) and did not become a martyr in his time, is that they are apostates for placing the non-chosen leader (means Abu Bakr) in authority over the chosen leader (means `Ali), or impious sinners for their short comings when it came to supporting him (means `Ali), thus it is not possible to assume the reliability of any of them except through a specific divine text.]

He rejected Shia sect and accepted Ahl-Sunnah due to this argument

Bismillah irrahman irrahim,

I was going through a shiite forum and i went through a thread about debate on imamah and till today i couldnt figure out what was the right way imamate or caliphate through shura. I was so confused about which faith to adopt sunni or shia? But Alhamdulillah i am now clear and it has driven all my confusion to the bin. This brother argued very cleverly and busted the opponent by these lines:

“Lets assume for the sake of arguments that imamat of the 12 was the chosen way. Ok Ali becomes the khalifa, than hassan, than hussain & till ur 12th imam mahdi. I am sure we all agree these imams were MORTAL human beings. Suppose each of these imams got khilafat without any resistance & there was no opposition by anyone & this is what u shias want isnt it? U criticize the sahaba for depriving the Ahly bayt from their right to rule the ummah? Fine… 20 years of khilafat by each of ur “divinely appointed” imam gives a total of 240 years. What after that? For the sake of argument we accept that all ur stories & tales of the tragedies & sad events surrounding the Ahly Bayt from the day they were entitled to rule till the day ur last imam left the ummah are true, but all these self made theories fail miserably on the other side when we apply them to reality. U guys have NO authentic narrations to clearly indicate what would been the scenario if things went in the favor of Ahly Bait & no one turned against Ali & his family”

He further continues:

“shia islam fails when it comes to the real application of its underlying principles. That proves it NOT the legitimate school of thought. This is why i dont accept it as a right path. It is full of flaws & miscalculations.

Compare this system with that of sunnis, a shura elects a caliph who is capable & worth of being one. He can be anyone, from any tribe, any race… thats more practical & applicable too. Its not limited to a number of people. It can be continued till qiyamah. So thats the right way.”

I am fully confident on my faith from now on. Shiism is false religion and doesnt make sense at all.

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 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

“…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.”

Imamate and Leadership – Lesson 17: The Imamate and Inner Guidance of Man

“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.”

Peshawar Nights Fourth Session, Sunday night, 2nd Rajab 1345 A.H.

“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.”

Peshawar Nights Fourth Session, Sunday night, 2nd Rajab 1345 A.H.

“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,…”

Shia Hadith: People of Makkah & Madina are disbelievers – go to Kufa

 بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

Imami Shia fabricated these narrations and attributed them to Jafar bin Muhammad (rah). Jafar is free from their lies and fabrications. Anyways, lets read their dirty narrations:

الكافي للكلينى ج2 ص 409 الحدائق الناضرة ج5 ص183 , ج18 ص149 للمحقق البحراني [محيى بن يحيى عن أحمد بن محمد عن علي بن الحكم عن منصور بن يونس عن سليمان بن خالد عن الصادق ( عليه السلام ) قال : ” اهل الشام شر من اهل الروم واهل المدينة شر من اهل مكة واهل مكة يكفرون بالله جهرة “] .

الحدائق الناظرة للبحراني ج5 ص183 , جوهر الكلام للجواهري ج6 ص60 , وكتاب الطهارة للأنصاري ج2 ص385 , شرح اصول الكافي للمازندراني ص121 , الإمام علي (ع) للهمداني ص190 , والكافي للكليني ج2 ص 410 [ عدة من أصحابنا , عن أحمد بن محمد بن خالد , عن عثمان بن عيسى , عن سماعة , عن ابي بصير , عن أحدهم ( عليهما السلام ) قال : إن أهل مكة ليكفرون بالله جهرة وإن أهل المدينة أخبث من أهل مكة , أخبث منهم سبعين ضعفاً ]

Jafar Sadiq (as) said: The People of Makkah openly disbelieve in Allah, and the people of Madina are worse than the people of Makkah, seventy times worse.

[(al-Kafi vol.2, pg.409-410), (Jawahir al-Kalam of al-Jawahiri vo.6, pg.60), (the book of Taharah of al-Ansari vol.2, pg.385)]

وروى فيه بسنده إليه الصادق ع قال : أهل الشام شر من أهل الروم وأهل المدينة شر من أهل مكة وأهل مكة يكفرون بالله جهرة.

From as-Sadiq (as): The people of Shaam are worse than the people of Rome. The people of Madina are worse than the people of Makkah. And the people of Makkah openly disbelieve in Allah (swt).

[al-Kafi vol.2, pg.209, hadith#3]

كتاب الطهارة للأنصاري ج2 ص358 , وفى تهذيب الأحكام لطوسي ج6 ص44 , كامل الزيارات لابن قولويه ص559 , المزار لـ محمد بن المشهدي ص344 [ حدثنى حكيم بن داود عن سلمة بن الخطاب عن ابراهيم بن محمد بن علي بن المعلى عن اسحاق بن داود قال : اتى رجل ابا عبدالله ( عليه السلام ) فقال له : اني قد ضربت على كل شيئ لي من ذهب وفضة وبعت ضياعي فقلت انزل مكة ؟ فقال له : لا تفعل ان اهل مكة يكفرون بالله جهرة . فقلت ففى حرم رسول الله ( صلى الله عليه وآله ) ؟ فال : هم شر منهم , قال : فاين انزل ؟ قال : عليك بالعراق الكوفة . فان البركة منها على اثنى عشر ميلا هكذا هكذا , والى جانبها قبر ما اتاه مكروب قط إلا فرج الله عنه ] .

A person came to Abu ‘Abdallah (as) and said to him “Shall I go to Makkah?” He (as) replied “No, don’t do that, the people of Makkah openly disbelieve in Allah (swt)”. So I said “What about the Prophet’s Mosque” and he (as) replied “They are even worse”. So I asked, “Where shall I go then” and he (as) said “Go to Iraq or Kufa”.

[Tahdhib al-Ahkam of Tusi vol.6, pg.44), (Kamil al-Ziyarat pg.559), (Book of Tahara of al-Ansari vol.2, pg.358)]
