Sayyiduna 'Ali (رضي الله عنه) is also reported to have said: "Take five pieces of advice from me: No one should fear anything except punishment for his sins; he should not hope for anything from anyone, except his Lord. He who is ignorant should not feel ashamed of seeking knowledge, and he who does not know the answer to a question should be ashamed of saying: "Allaah knows best".

Patience is part of faith, just as the head is part of the body; when patience vanishes, faith also vanishes, in the same way that the body cannot live without the head." [Sa'eed Ibn Mansoor in his Sunan]

Another saying of Sayyiduna 'Ali (رضي الله عنه) is: "The best among men of Islaamic knowledge is he who does not make people despair in attaining Allaah's Mercy, does not give them the chance to sin against Allaah (صلى الله عليه وسلم), and does not make them feel safe from Allaah's Punishment.

The best Islaamic scholar is also the person who does not abandon the Qur'an because of being attracted by another book.

There is no good in worship which is devoid of knowledge, and knowledge without understanding is worthless.

There is no value in reading without contemplating." (Ibn al-Darees in his book Fadaa'il al-Qur'aan)

Hadrat 'Umar (رضي الله عنه) The Best Of Friends


In old, worn out shabby looking clothes, Amir Al-Mu'minin, Ali Bin Abi Talib رضي الله عنه, sat saying grace to Allah. Abu Maryam, one of the servants, sat on his knees close to `Ali and whispered: "Amir Al-Mu'minin, I have something to ask of you." `Ali رضي الله عنه said: "What is it that you want to ask?"

Abu Maryam said: "That you throw away the clothes you are wearing. They are old and ripped and do not go well with your position."

`Ali Bin Abi Taleb رضي الله عنه put the tip of his clothes on his eyes and started to cry until his weeping was loud. In embarrassment, Abu Maryam said: "O Amir Al-Mu'minin, if I knew that it meant so much to you I would not have asked you to take it off." `Ali رضي الله عنه said while wiping his tears: "O Abu Maryam, my love for this jacket is increasing. It was a gift from my friend and beloved companion."

Oddly, Abu Maryam asked: "And who is this friend of yours O Amir?" `Ali رضي الله عنه said: " 'Umar Ibn Al Khattab. He was the best of friends."

He then started to weep once again until the sound of his suppressed cries could be heard from afar.

Muhammad Ibn al-Hanafiyyah رحمه الله says that he asked his father, Sayyiduna 'Ali رضي الله عنه, "Who was the best man after the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم?"

Sayyiduna 'Ali رضي الله عنه said, "Son, don't you know who?"

He said, "No."

Sayyiduna 'Ali رضي الله عنه said, "It is Abu Bakr." رضي الله عنه

He asked, "Then Who?"

Sayyiduna 'Ali رضي الله عنه said, "'Umar." رضي الله عنه

Ibn al-Hanafiyyah رحمه الله says that he feared that if he asked again, his father would say 'Uthmaan رضي الله عنه, so he said, "Then You?"

Sayyiduna 'Ali رضي الله عنه said, "I am only a Muslim among other Muslims."


[al-Bukhari, 3671; Abu Dawood, 4629; Ibn Abi Shaybah, 12:12, Ibn Abi 'Asim, 1204, 1206; al-Baghawi, 3871. The author, Majmoo' Fataawa, vol. 4, p. 422, quotes this hadeeth and states that it is reported by approximately eighty routes from Sayyiduna 'Ali (may Allaah be pleased with him)]

Sayyiduna 'Ali رضي الله عنه said that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم took Hasan رضي الله عنه and Husayn رضي الله عنه by their hands and said, "Whoever loves me, and loves these two, and their father and mother, will have the same degree as me on the Day of Rising." [at-Tirmidhi]

Sayyiduna 'Ali رضي الله عنه was asked, "How was your love for the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم?"

He replied, "By Allaah! We loved him more than our wealth, our sons, our fathers and our mothers, and more than cold water in a time of great thirst." [ash-Shifaa of Qadi Iyad رحمه الله]

The Event of Ghadeer al-Khumm


Mufti Muhammad Ibn Adam


Question:

Dear scholar, is the event of Ghadir Khum true or it's a false tradition made the by Shi'as? And if it is true, what's the Sunni interpretation of this event?

Answer:

In the name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful,

One of the fundamental differences between the Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Jama'ah and Shi'a is the Khilafah of Sayyiduna Ali (Allah be pleased with him). The Shi'as believe that he was directly rightful to be the successor of the blessed Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give peace), whereas the Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Jama'ah, having full love and respect for Sayyiduna Ali (Allah be pleased with him) are of the view that the first rightful Caliph after the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give peace) was Sayyiduna Abu Bakr, then Sayyiduna Umar ibn al-Khattab, then Sayyiduna Uthman ibn Affan and then Sayyiduna Ali (Allah be pleased with them all).

This is one of the many major differences between the rightful Ahl al-Sunnah Wa al-Jama'ah and the deviated Shi'as. This also leads to other differences such as the Shi'a's belief regarding the twelve Imams and having enmity for the great Companions of the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace).

The evidences usually presented by the Shi'as are of three types. They present certain verses of the Qur'an in order to support their view that Sayyiduna Ali (Allah be pleased with him) was actually the rightful direct Caliph. These Qur'anic verses do not even have a slight hint of the issue of Khilafah, but Shi'a writers normally present, in order to explain these verses, their own fabricated narrations that are nowhere to be found in the authentic compilations of Hadith.

The second type of evidences presented by Shi'a authors are narrations that are not in the authentic books of Hadith, rather they are found to be in the books of Shi'as. Thirdly, the evidences used by Shi'as in order to support their view are those authentic narrations that mention the virtues and qualities (manaqib) of Sayyiduna Ali (Allah be pleased with him) and they are found in the authentic books of Hadith compilations.

In summary, there are three types of evidences they generally use:

1) Qur'anic verses explained with their own fabricated narrations;

2) Fabricated narrations found in their own books;

3) Authentic Ahadith that mention only the virtues of Sayyiduna Ali;

Now, if one was to look at the above three types of evidences with a open mind, it would become crystal clear that none of these can be used in order to prove that Sayyiduna Ali (Radhi Allah Anh) was the direct Caliph after the Messenger (Allah bless him & give him peace). The Qur'anic verses, because they don't even hint to the issue of Khilafah, rather if one was to look into the reliable Tafsir compilations, it would become clear that the verses have nothing whatsoever to do with that which the Shi'as claim. Also, fabricated narrations mentioned in their books are no source of evidence, and the narrations recorded in the reliable books of Hadith merely mention the virtues of Sayyiduna Ali, of which even the Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Jama'ah are in agreement. Thus, none of the evidences support the claim of the Shi'as.

The aim in this brief answer is of course not to analyze all these evidences, but to only concentrate on one, which has been asked in the question and is also the main evidence used by the Shi'as in order to substantiate their view.

The Hadith used by the Shi'as is known as the incident of Ghadir. Ghadir is an Arabic word which means a 'pool'. This pool was situated in a place between Makkah al-Mukarramah and Madina al-Munawwarah in a place known as Juhfa.

In the last year of the Messenger of Allah's (Allah bless him & give him peace) life he performed a Hajj known as Hajj al-Wada'. It is narrated from authentic sources such as Sunan Tirmidhi, Sunan Nasa'i, Musnad Ahmad and others that the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) on his return from this auspicious journey of Hajj camped at Ghadir Khum.

Some of the Companions had complained to the Messenger of Allah regarding Sayyiduna Ali (Allah be pleased with him) that they disliked certain things of his that he practised whilst they were sent to Yeman. Due to this, the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace) on his return from Madina, gave a sermon at this place of Gadir Khum and mentioned the qualities and virtues of Sayyiduna Ali (Allah be pleased with him). He said the following:

"Verily Ali is from me and I am from him. He is the beloved (wali) of every believer." (Sunan Tirmidhi)

"To whoever I am beloved (mawla), Ali is also beloved to him." (Tirmidhi).

"O Allah! Love the one who loves Ali and dislike the one who dislikes Ali." (Sunan ibn Majah).

"Verily Ali is from me and I am from him, and he is the beloved of every believer after me" (Sunan al-Kubra of Nasa'i).

If one was to look in these narrations, the predominant words used in all these narrations are derived from the root word 'Muwalat'. The Shi'as claim that it refers to the Khilafah of Sayyiduna Ali (Karram Allah Wajhah) and that it proves he was the rightful Caliph after the demise of the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace), the position which was wrongfully not given to him.

However, by looking at the word 'Muwalat' from a linguistic point of view, it becomes crystal clear that this has nothing to do with Khilafah. The word is repeatedly used in various verses of the Qur'an and Hadith and has never been used for Khilafah. Rather, it has always been used for love and nearness.

This is the reason why none of the Companions (Allah be pleased with them all) including Sayyiduna Ali (Allah be pleased with him) regarded these statements of the Messenger of Allah to be in relation to the Khilafah.

After the demise of the Messenger of Allah (Allah belss him & give him peace) and when the Companions gathered in the Saqifah of Banu Sa'idah, not one Companion even mentioned these statements of the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him & give him peace). It is reported from Sayyiduna Ali (Allah be pleased with him) that he was reluctant to ask the Messenger of Allah regarding the issue of Khilafah, as he feared of it not being given to him (Sahih al-Bukhari). If the statements of the Messenger of Allah at Ghadir Khum were sufficient for him to be the rightful Khalifah, he would never have been reluctant.

This is the reason why all the Companions (including Sayyiduna Ali) rightfully handed the Khilafah over to Sayyiduna Abu Bakr and then Sayyiduna Umar and then Sayyiduna Uthman (Allah be pleased with them all).

In conclusion, the incident of Ghadir Khum merely mentions the virtues of Sayyiduna Ali (Allah be pleased with him), and as mentioned previously, the Shi'as normally in order to support their claims use those narrations that mention merely the Virtues of Sayyiduna Ali (Allah be pleased with him).

This is just a brief mention of the issue. For more details, one may refer to the Arabic works such as al-Awasim min al-Qawasim of Qadhi Abu Bakr ibn al-Arabi, Minhaj al-Sunnah by Ibn Taymiyya, al-Sawaiq al-Muhraqa by Ibn Hajr al-Haytami and others.

Alhumdulillah, your nonsense was not available for anyone else to see.

You prove yourself to be very foolish and pray to Allah he punishes you and your like to the worst of abodes.

Your post has been sent to Seifeddine for him to witness your nonsense too.

Shaykhul Hadeeth Muhammad Zakariya Kandhlawi رحمه الله writes,

"Once, Darar Ibn Damura Kinani رحمه الله [a staunch supporter of Sayyiduna 'Ali رضي الله عنه] came to Sayyiduna Mu'awiya رضي الله عنه after Sayyiduna Ali's death رضي الله عنه.

Sayyiduna Mu'awiya رضي الله عنه said, 'Describe 'Ali for me.'

He asked, 'O Leader of the Believers, will you excuse me from this?'

'I will not, you must describe him to me,' replied Sayyiduna Mu'awiya رضي الله عنه.

Then Darar رحمه الله spoke: 'If I must tell you then listen! Sayyiduna 'Ali, I swear by Allah, was an exalted person and very strong. He was straightforward in whatever he said and ruled with justice. Knowledge streamed from his every angle, and intelligence poured forth from every part. The material world and its beauty and ornamentation disquieted him. I swear by Allah, he cried copiously and pondered a lot. He would flip his palms while addressing himself. He liked simple cloth and preferred coarse food. I swear by Allah, he lived amongst us as if he was one of us. When we visited him, he would sit us near him and whatever we asked, he would answer. Despite his simplicity and mingling with us, we did not have the courage to speak to him because of our reverence and awe of him. And when he laughed, his teeth were like stringed pearls. He respected the pious and loved the poor. Never did a strong and rich man hope to win in his wrongdoing nor was a poor and weak man unhopeful of his fairness and his ability to mete out justice to him. I am Allah's witness that I saw him in the darkness of the night, in the niche [mihrab], clutching his beard, shaking as if he was bitten by a poisonous animal. He was crying like a mourning person and his voice echoes in my mind to this day when he said, "O my Lord, O my Lord," and humbled himself before Allah. Then he addressed the material world saying, "You want to deceive me and you beautify yourself for me only. Get out of here, go and deceive someone else. Your sittings are wretched and your hardships are easy. O my, O my! The preparation for the Hereafter is little, the journey is long, and the path is dangerous."'

By the time Darar رحمه الله finished, Sayyiduna Mu'awiya رضي الله عنه was weeping. His beard was soaked with tears and he repeatedly wiped them with his cuffs. Other people in the gathering wept and sobbed. Sayyiduna Mu'awiya رضي الله عنه finally said, 'You spoke the truth, Abul Hasan was as you described him, may Allah forgive him.'

Then he asked, 'Darar! How much do you mourn the death of 'Ali?'

Darar رحمه الله replied, 'Like a mother whose only child is slaughtered in her lap. Her crying cannot stop and her grief can never diminish.' After this, Darar رحمه الله returned."

Sayyiduna 'Ali رضي الله عنه was a prominent member of the consultative committee of Sayyiduna 'Umar's رضي الله عنه state; indeed, he was the main consultant. 'Umar رضي الله عنه acknowledged 'Ali's رضي الله عنه virtue, understanding of Islam and wisdom, and he had a good opinion of him. It is proven that he said concerning him: "The best of us in judiciary matters is 'Ali."

Ibn al-Jawzi رحمه الله said: "Abu Bakr and 'Umar (may Allah be pleased with them) used to consult him, and 'Umar used to say: 'I seek refuge with Allah from a problem that Abul Hasan ('Ali) cannot handle.'"

Sayyiduna 'Ali رضي الله عنه was one of those who were close to Sayyiduna 'Umar رضي الله عنه and supported him. He did not withhold any suggestion or advice from him, and he strove with him to come up with solutions to problems concerning which there was no text, and to organise the affairs of the emerging state.
