Shaykh Allaha Muqbil ibn Hadi al-Wadi said:
مختلفٌ فيه بين أهل السنة ، فمنهم من يراه كافراً ، ومنهم من يراه فاسقاً ، والذي رجحه الحافظ الذهبي – ولعله الصواب إن شاء الله – أنه يعتبر فاسقاً ، وأمره إلى الله .
Ahlesunnah differed in regards to him. And from them who called him Kaafir, and from them who called him Faasiq. And hafidh adh-Dhahabi preferred opinion – which is more correct, inshAllah – that he was Faasiq. And his ruling upon Allah.
Here are some narrations from Shia books, that would be authenticated according to the standards of most Shia scholars, nevertheless be assured that the Rafidah will reject them. It’s stil a good blow to them (also check the links on the bottom of the post).
Hafidh ad-Dhahabe said in his book “Mizanul itidal” (1/5):
“And extreme person from the sheeah in the time of the early Muslims and according to them was one who spoke ill of and reviled Uthman ibn Affan, Zubayr ibnul Awaam, Talha, Muawiyah ibn Abee Sufyan and a group who fought Alee. Whereas an extreme sheeah in our time and according to us is one who declares them disbelievers and renounces himself from Abu Bakr and also Umar. This one is misguided liar”.
Quoted from “Min aqwal al-munsefeen fi sahabe al-khaliphat Muawiya ibn Abee Sufyan” by Abdulmuhsin Abbad.
After having the Nawab ask him the reason for the Shi‘ah combining prayers, Shirazi introduces this phenomenon into the discussion. The Hafiz is made to offer the explanation that the Nabi sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam combined prayers only in extraordinary situations, like when he was on a journey, or due to rain, and that he always offered his prayers separately when he was at home.
In refutation of this explanation, Shirazi cites a hadith of Ibn ‘Abbas radiyallahu ‘anhuma in which it is reported that Rasulullah sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam combined the Zuhr and ‘Asr, and Maghrib and ‘Isha prayers while in residence. Here Shirazi has used a creative method of citation. The hadith he cites is in reality one single hadith. However, he boldly states that “many ahadith confirm this fact”. Then, in order to show just how many ahadith confirm this fact, he quotes the hadith of Ibn ‘Abbas several times from a number of different sources. By mentioning the various chains of narration up to Ibn ‘Abbas radiyallahu ‘anhuma, even going to the extent that “Imam Muslim quotes a number of ahadith on the issue”, Shirazi deceitfully tries to create the impression that there exists a multitude of ahadith that prove the combining of prayers in residence. The fact of the matter is that there is only one hadith,which is that of Ibn ‘Abbas radiyallahu ‘anhuma, which happens to be narrated from Ibn ‘Abbas by a number of his students. The careful reader will not fail to notice that each “separate” hadith cited by Shirazi ends with Ibn ‘Abbas radiyallahu ‘anhuma, and even the corroboration by Abu Hurayrah radiyallahu ‘anhu is part of Ibn ‘Abbas’ hadith, and not technically an independent hadith.
How did `Ali ibn abi Talib (ra) distribute the Khums during his Khilafah? Another Wahhabi trait of Ali!
We have two narrations from Mustadrak al-Hakim al-Naysapuri regarding the topic. The Matn of both is similar but the Sanad differs so I will translate one Matn and go through both Isnads. Continue reading
There is a famous shia narrator Hisham ibn al-Hakam, and he was known mujasima (anthropomorphist). This fact well accepted by Islamic scholars, and at the same time it was several times testified by shias themselves. Continue reading
Allah said in the Quran:
[Shakir 5:87] O you who believe! do not forbid (yourselves) the good things which Allah has made lawful for you and do not exceed the limits; surely Allah does not love those who exceed the limits.
Shaykh of shias allama al-Majlisi in “Uyunul Hayat” (1/348) narrated:
Narrated Ali ibn Ibrahim WITH AUTHENTIC CHAIN, in his Tafseer commentary of verse ” O you who believe! do not forbid (yourselves) the good things which Allah has made lawful for you” from Abu Abdullah (alaihi salam): It was revealed about commander of faithful (alaihi salam), Bilal and Uthman ibn Maudhun.
And commander of faithful (alaihi salam) promised that he would never sleep at night, as for Bilal, he promised that he never would eat during the day, as for Uthman ibn Maudhun he promised that he never would marry (meaning he would never have intercourse with wife).
And wife of the Uthman ibn Maudhun entered upon Aisha, and she was beautiful woman. Aisha asked: Why I see you upset?…. His wife said: By Allah, my husband didn’t approached me from such and such time….. (when prophet sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa sallam entered to Aisha, she said that to him)
He went out, and called to congregational prayer. People gathered, and minbar was set, he praised Allah, then said: What happen with group which prohibited upon themselves pure things? HEAR, I AM SLEEPING AT NIGHTS, MARRY (WOMAN) AND EAT DURING THE DAYS. AND WHOEVER WOULD GO ASTRAY FROM MY SUNNAH IS NOT FROM ME.

Narrated by as-Saduq in his “al-Khisal” (p 358):
Muhammad ibn Ali Majiluyih – may God be pleased with him – narrated that Muhammad ibn Yahya al-Attar quoted Muhammad ibn Ahmad, on the authority of Ahmad ibn Hilal , on the authority of Isa ibn Abdullah al-Hashemi, on the authority of his father, on the authority of his forefathers (alaihuma salam) that God’s Prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Gabriel was sent to me by the Honorable the Exalted God and told me, ‘God has ordained that you recite the Quran in one letter only.’ I said, ‘O God! Please be more lenient with my nation.’ Then Gabriel said, ‘The Honorable the Exalted God ordained that you recite the Quran in seven letters.’”

Narrated by as-Saduq in Maanil Akhbar (p 104):
Musa ibn Jafar (a.s.) said, ‘Once when the Messenger of Allah was sitting an angel who had twenty four faces came to him. The Messenger of Allah said to him, “My friend Jibril, I had not seen you in this form before.” The angel said, ” Iam not Jibril, (I am Mahmud). Allah, the Most Majestic, the Most gracious, has sent me to join in marriage the light with the light.” He then asked, “Who with who?” The angel said, “Fatima and Ali (a.s.).” The Imam (a.s.) said, “When the angel turned back on his shoulder it said, “Muhammad the Messenger of Allah, and Ali (a.s.) the executor of his will.” The Messenger of Allah asked, “Since when this has been written on your shoulder?” The angel replied, “It was there twenty two thousand year before Allah created Adam.”
We all know that shias believe that neither prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa sallam) nor Imams could err.
Majlisi in Rawda said hadith is strong (5/349), and also said strong as saheeh (8/187).
Imam Musa ibn Jafar narrated from his forefathers, that prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa sallam) said:
أنا آمن لأصحابي- فإذا قبضت دنا من أصحابي ما يوعدون- و أصحابي أمنة لأمتي- فإذا قبض أصحابي دنا من أمتي ما يوعدون- و لا يزال هذا الدين ظاهرا على الأديان كلها- ما دام فيكم من قد رآني من رآني
I am protection (amanah) for my companions, and when I will go, (predestination) would get closer to my companions. AND MY COMPANIONS ARE PROTECTION FOR MY NATION, AND IF THEY WILL GO, (PREDESTINATION) WOULD GET CLOSER TO MY NATION. THIS RELIGION WOULD BE DOMINANT OVER ALL OTHER RELIGIONS, UNTILL BETWEEN YOU WOULD BE PEOPLE WHICH SEEN THOSE WHO SEEN ME.
Discussion: Just have a look, that prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ala alihi wa sallam) didn’t bind protection and victory of Islamic nation with the presence of masoom Imam! He linked it to presence of tabioon.
