Misquote from AA


Salam alaikum.

We have discussed authenticy of hadith “I am city of knowledge” in separate article.  So here talk wouldn’t be regarding its status.

Masters of deception at AA site cited group of scholars which said it’s authentic or hasan, including Suyuti. And then they wrote:

While Mullah Muttaqi Hindi wrote:

‘I answered (that the hadith is Hasan) for years until I noticed that Ibn Jareer declared this hadith Sahih in his book Tahdib al-Athaar beside the declaration of being Sahih by al-Hakim of this tradition that is narrated by ibn Abbas. I then performed isthikhara and became convinced that the Hadeeth ‘I am the city of knowledge and ‘Ali is its gate’ is Sahih not Hasan. Allah knows best.’
Kanz al Ummal, Volume 13 page 148 Tradition 36464

When I checked mentioned place in “Kanzul  ummal”  I have found mentioned words:

وقد كنت أجيب بهذا الجواب دهرا إلى أن وقفت على تصحيح ابن جرير لحديث علي في تهذيب الآثار مع تصحيح ( ك ) لحديث ابن عباس فاستخرت الله وجزمت بارتقاء الحديث من مرتبة الحسن إلى مرتبة الصحة – والله أعلم

See online

But when we check Jamiu Jawami (339916) of Suyuti, we can see that these words are his, and Muttaki simply quoted him:

وقد كنت أجيب بهذا الجواب دهرا إلى أن وقفت على تصحيح ابن جرير لحديث على فى تهذيب الآثار مع تصحيح الحاكم لحديث ابن عباس فاستخرت الله وجزمت بارتقاء الحديث من مرتبة الحسن إلى مرتبة الصحة – والله أعلم

Al-Hindi died in 1567 CE/975 AH, and Suyuti died in 1505/911 AH.

Conclusion.

Shias from AA cited first Suyuti opinion from his own words, then they cited al-Hindi’s quote from other work of Suyuti. And in their attempt to prolong list of people who said that hadith is authentic, they gave quote from al-Hindi as his own one.

  1. JazakAllah, this attitude of Shias to prolonging the list of references to misguide people is a very old one. If they give 20 references, 10 are not of sunnis at all, 5 are misquoted, 3 are mistranslated, 2 are weak.
