In his book “Hal Mushkilat Sharhul Ziyaratul Jamia al-Kabira” at page 64, Mirza Hasan al-Haeri al-Ihqaqi said:
As for Muhammad (sallalahu alaihi wa ali), Allah created him before all things, EVEN before Ali (alaihi salam), and his Ahlalbayt and his sinless sons. And this is from things upon which greed Hassat (shias) and Amma (sunnis). AND AHADETH ABOUT THIS ARE MUTAWATIR, from them saying of messenger of Allah (sallalahu alaihi wa ali): O Jabir, first thing which was created by Allah is Noor (Light) of your prophet.
As for Ali (alaihi salam), Allah created him after Muhammad (sallalahu alaihi wa ali), and before other sinless (masoomin). And this is from things which accepted in the (view) of shia Imamiyah, AND IN THE (VIEW) OF OTHERS ALSO, and narrations about this a lot.
1) Shia shaykh lied when he claimed that we do believe that light of prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa sallam) was first thing which was created!
First thing that Allah created was Pen, in accordance to hadith which was transmitted by Tirmiri in his “Sunnan” 2155.
2) He claimed that ahadeth regarding prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa sallam) was created first are mutawatir. Sure that is lie if he mean our sources, but we are curious to see such mutawatir reports in shia sources.
3) He blatantly lied when he claimed that “in the view of others also” Ali was the second thing which was created after prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa sallam).
