In one of our previous posts, we have already pointed to one example of lie by Salih al-Wardane.
You can see his bio at this shia site. Seems he is infamous xerocopy of other Tijani. This Salih author of such books as “Rihlate min as-sunna ila shia”, and “as-Saif wa siyasa”. I’d like to discuss few quotes from last one. He entitled there chapter in this way “Personality of Imam”.
And there he has quoted few ahadeth in praise of sayidina Ali. I have seen many shias quoting weak and fabrications in their attempt to prove their point. But even I was surprised, when I checked footnotes in this chapter.
At page 108 he mentioned hadith:
أعلمهم بما أنزل الله علي
“Most knowledgeable of them in things that revealed Allah – is Ali”
In footnote we can see reference to Musnad of Taylasi and Imam Ahmad.
Can I ask anyone from shias to show hadith with such text in any from these two books?
Further he mentioned hadith:
ن أراد أن ينظر إلى آدم في علمه فلينظر إلى علي
“Whoever wish to look at person who is in his knowledge like Adam, let him look to Ali”.
In footnote we can see reference to Sunnan of Beyhaki and (Sahih of ) imam Moslem!!! By Allah this shameless man lied upon our books! You wouldn’t find such hadith in book of imam Moslem.
As we already said, he mentioned hadith:
أعلم أمتي بعدي علي
“Ali most knowledgeable in my nation after me”.
And by Allah, this rafidi lied when he attributed this hadith to book of imam Moslem!
In the same page he mentioned hadith:
Best in judgement between you is Ali
First of all, I should notice words of allama Abul Muhaseen Muhammad ibn Khalil al-Qawukchi. In his book “al-Lulu al-mawdoa fima la asla lahu aw bi aslihi mawdoa” (hadith #56), he said regarding this hadith: It’s not between (ahadeth) elevated (till prophet, sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa sallam)”.
Shaykh Mullah Ali al-Qare al-Hanafe quoted same opinion in his “Asraru marfua” (#124).
With close meaning it has been narrated in authentic form as a part of other hadith.
Ibn Majah in his “Sunnan” (159):
حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْمُثَنَّى، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الْوَهَّابِ بْنُ عَبْدِ الْمَجِيدِ، حَدَّثَنَا خَالِدٌ الْحَذَّاءُ، عَنْ أَبِي قِلاَبَةَ، عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ، أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ قَالَ ” أَرْحَمُ أُمَّتِي بِأُمَّتِي أَبُو بَكْرٍ وَأَشَدُّهُمْ فِي دِينِ اللَّهِ عُمَرُ وَأَصْدَقُهُمْ حَيَاءً عُثْمَانُ وَأَقْضَاهُمْ عَلِيُّ بْنُ أَبِي طَالِبٍ وَأَقْرَؤُهُمْ لِكِتَابِ اللَّهِ أُبَىُّ بْنُ كَعْبٍ وَأَعْلَمُهُمْ بِالْحَلاَلِ وَالْحَرَامِ مُعَاذُ بْنُ جَبَلٍ وَأَفْرَضُهُمْ زَيْدُ بْنُ ثَابِتٍ أَلاَ وَإِنَّ لِكُلِّ أُمَّةٍ أَمِينًا وَأَمِينُ هَذِهِ الأُمَّةِ أَبُو عُبَيْدَةَ بْنُ الْجَرَّاحِ ”
“Most merciful in my nation towards my nation is Abu Bakr, most severe between them in religious matters Umar, most truthful Uthman, best judge from them is Ali, best reciter of Allah’s book in Ubay ibn Kab, most knowledgeable in halal and haram Muaz ibn Jabal, most knowledgeable in matters of inheritance is Zayd ibn Sabit. Attention! Each nation had his own Ameen (trusty), and the trusty of this nation is Abu Ubaydah ibn al-Jarrah”.
Hadith is saheeh as said shaykh Albani.
