Who was behind gathering Quran in one book?

as Salam Alaykum.

Hafiz ibn Kasir in his “Fadhail al-Quran” (p 44, Darul Itisam, Turkey) said:

“Like it was reported by imams like Waki (ibn al-Jarrah), (Abdurrahman) ibn al-Mahdi and Kabisa, Ali ibn Abi Talib (radi Allahu anh said):

The one who got greatest reward in regard to scrolls of Quran is Abu Bakr! The one who first gathered Quran between two covers was Abu Bakr”.

(Ibn Kasir said) – The chain of this report is sound”.



Shia source: He forgot Quran.

as Salam alaykum.

Did prophet forget anything? As a Ahlesunnah, we do believe he didn’t forget anything from revelation, or any shariah related issues.

As for shias?

مختصر البصائر – الحسن بن سليمان الحلى – ص 284 – 285
 وعنه ومحمد بن الحسين بن أبي الخطاب وغيرهما عن أحمد بن محمد بن أبي نصر ، عن هشام بن سالم ، عن سعد بن طريف الخفاف ، قال : قلت لأبي جعفر ( عليه السلام ) : ما تقول فيمن أخذ عنكم علما فنسيه ؟ قال : ” لا حجة عليه ، إنما الحجة على من سمع منا حديثا فأنكره ، أو بلغه فلم يؤمن به وكفر ، فأما النسيان فهو موضوع عنكم . إن أول سورة نزلت على رسول الله ( صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم ) * ( سبح اسم ربك الأعلى ) * فنسيها ، فلم يلزمه حجة في نسيانه ، ولكن الله تبارك وتعالى أمضى له ذلك ، ثم قال  سنقرئك فلا تنسى “.


“Mukhtasar al-Basair” by al-Hasan ibn Sulayman al-Hilli, pages 284-285.

“And from him, and from Muhammad ibn al-Husayn ibn Abul Khattab and others, from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Abu Nasr, from Hisham ibn Salim, from Sayyed ibn Tareef al-Khaffaf, which said: I asked from Abu Jafar (alaihi salam): “What do you say about person who took knowledge from you and forgot?” He said: “No argument against him for this, argument against man who heard hadith from us, and rejected it. Or it (hadith) was narrated to him and he didn’t believe it, and disbelieved (by this). As for forgetfulness, it is (known) thing from them. First chapter (surah) revealed upon prophet (sallalahu alayhi wa alihi) was – “Glorify the name of thy Guardian-Lord Most High” (87/1), and HE FORGOT IT, (but) there was no need for him an argument in forgetting it, but Allah blessed and exalted arrange this for him, then said (by saying?): “We will make you recite so you shall not forget” (87/6).



Abul Hasan ar-Ridha didn’t make taweel

Shaykh Saduq in his “Tawheed” p 163, narrated following hadith:

2 – حدثنا محمد بن الحسن بن أحمد بن الوليد رحمه الله، قال: حدثنا محمد ابن الحسن الصفار، عن محمد بن عيسى، عن المشرقي، عن عبدالله بن قيس(2) عن أبي الحسن الرضا عليه السلام قال: سمعته يقول: (بل يداه مبسوطتان) فقلت: له يدان هكذا، وأشرت بيدي إلى يده، فقال: لا، لو كان هكذا لكان مخلوقا.


From Abdullah ibn Qays, I heard Abul Hasan ar-Ridha reciting (the verse) “Nay, both His hands are spread out” (al-Maida 64). I said to him: “He had hands line these?” and pointed by my hands to his. He said: “No, if they would be like these (hands), He would be (considered) creation”.

What is important here?

Imam didn’t say, He has no hands, that is power, energy and etc. He said if Allah would have hands like ours, He would be considered creation.

Ghanimat – refuting the doubt of shias


First of all, what is khums in Islam? And what is khums in shia understanding? In accordance to Islamic texts, khums it is 1/5 of war booty that Muslims are getting after the battles. It should be payed to group of people, as it would be show later from the verse of Quran.  Continue reading
