The Shia and fasting on the day of ‘Arafah

Clear hatred for the nation of Muhammad (sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa sallam)

Let’s see what the divinely guided saintly infallible Imams are afraid of.

We read in Man la Yahduruhu al-Faqih volume 2 Page 88 Hadith # 1811 under the chapter of voluntary fasting and its rewards:

وعنه عن عمرو بن عثمان عن حنان بن سدير عن أبيهعن ابي جعفر عليه السلام قال: سألته عن صوم يوم عرفة فقلتجعلت فداك انهم يزعمون انه يعدل صوم سنة .قال: كان ابي عليه السلام لا يصومه .قلت: ولم ذاك ؟قال: ان يوم عرفة يوم دعاء ومسألة واتخوف ان يضعفني عنالدعاء واكره ان اصومه , واتخوف ان يكون عرفة يوم اضحىفليس بيوم صوم .قال مصنف هذا الكتاب رحمه الله -: إن العامة غير موفقين لفطر ولا أضحى و إنما كره عليه السلام صوم يوم عرفة لانه كان يكون يوم العيد في أكثر السنين(2) و تصديق ذلك:
1812 – ما قاله الصادق عليه السلام: ” لما قتل الحسين بن علي عليهما السلام أمر الله عزوجل ملكا فنادى أيتها الامة الظالمة القاتلة عترة نبيها لا وفقكم الله تعالى لصوم و لافطر
(2) قال سلطان العلماء: ” الاشتباه وقع بين عرفة والعيد غضبا من الله تعالى على العامة وأكثر أيام عرفتهم يوم العيد في الواقع فافطر عليه السلام يوم عيدهم هربا من صوم العيد الواقعى وذلك لا ينافى استحباب صوم يوم عرفة الواقعى”.تهذيب الأحكام لشيخ الطائفة 4 / 299

1811 – Also from him, from ‘Amro bin ‘Uthman, from Hannan bin Sadeer, from his father, from Imam abu Ja’afar (as): I asked him about fasting the day of ‘Arafah: “May I be a sacrifice for you, they claim that fasting ‘Arafah is equal to fasting an entire year.” He said: “My father never fasted it.” I said: “Why is that?” He said: “The day of ‘Arafah is a day of Du’ah(supplication) and a day of asking Allah for your needs and I Fear that if I fast then I would be too weak to make Du’ah so I hate to fast it, also I Fear that the day of ‘Arafah would be the day of ‘Eid al-Adha so it wouldn’t be acceptable to fast on it.”

The compiler of this book may Allah have mercy on him said: The Sunnies are not able to know the day of Fitr or the day of Adha and he (as) hates fasting on this day of ‘Arafah because it was the day of ‘Eid in most years (2) and we read:

al-Sadiq (as) says: “When al-Hussein bin ‘Ali (as) was killed Allah ordered an Angel to shout: O you nation of oppressors and murderers of the family of the Prophet, may Allah fail you on the days of fasting and Fitr.”

footnote (2): Sultan al-‘Ulema said: They confused the day of ‘Arafah and the day of ‘Eid as a result of Allah’s anger on the Sunnies, most of their days of ‘Arafah are actually days of ‘Eid, so he (as) did not fast on their day of ‘Eid because he avoided fasting on the true day of ‘Eid, this does not deny the merit of fasting the true day of ‘Arafah.”

– end –

Ok let’s comment on the main narration as I’ll avoid commenting on the rest of the hateful and evil material, So the infallible Imam did not fast on ‘Arafah because he Feared that if he fasted on this one day that he’d be too weak to make Du’ah to Allah, that is obviously the worst excuse I’ve ever heard to get out of fasting, I wonder how he spends his entire month of Ramadhan if he’s too weak to make Du’ah because of fasting on one day, then the Imam (fabricator of the Hadith) presents his second lame excuse in saying that he Fears that if he fasted on it that it might be on a day of ‘Eid, I say there is nothing to Fear, aren’t you the divinely guided infallible Imam? surely you must not be afraid of confusing ‘Eid with ‘Arafah…

Then the all merciful Allah becomes angry on the Sunnies and curses them for all eternity… hmmm… kind of reminds me of the story of the Jews who killed their prophets… Gee I wonder who fabricated this Hadith.
