The answer is that Shia believe that the Prophet based on God's order choose Ali (PBUH) as his successor and expressed this several times to the Muslims (including in his last hajj). They view the fact that some Sahaba didn't follow his order as a big injustice and diversion from what Muslims should have done and believe that this diversion had a large ...

The reason is that according to Shi'a only God can select the Caliph and after the Prophet God selected Ali as His Caliph, who received divine knowledge of the prophet to guide humans. This was declared by the prophet in front of 120,000 Muslims at Ghadir at the final Hajj of the Prophet. Abubakr, Umar and Uthman gave Bayat (pledge of alliance) to Ali S.A. ...

This is proper adab that is taught by Quran. For Muhammad: إِنَّ اللَّـهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا 33:56 For Prophets and Angels: 37:181 وَسَلَامٌ عَلَى الْمُرْسَلِينَ For Sahaba: وَالسّـٰبِقونَ الأَوَّلونَ مِنَ المُهـٰجِرينَ وَالأَنصارِ وَالَّذينَ اتَّبَعوهُم ...

We say Rady Allahu Anhu (may Allah be pleased with him) when talking about any of the companions or the mothers of believers, including the caliphates. We can say Rady Allahu Anhu about Ali, as we say Karam Allah Wajhah (may Allah bless his face) as he has never bowed to an idol.

If you are an arabic reader check this article from IslamWeb(which can also be translated to English) that states that the persons who washed the Prophet were: the prophet's family members who were: Al-Abbas, Ali, Al-Fadl and Kuthm (Al Abbas' sons), Shakran (the prophet's servant), Usama bin Zaid, and Aous bin Khawlah. However they washed him wearing his ...

It should be noted, that the hadith in your question is not Authentic, it is false. Ka'b never predicted that Umar would die in three days, furthermore the description of Umar and when he would die is not in the Tauraat.

There is no reason to assume that the Hadith is a comprehensive list of those promised paradise. There are literally hundreds of companions who are known to deserve paradise (isA). This Hadith just mentions 10 of them.

Aisha reported: The Prophet (SAW) said, “Do not abuse the dead, for they have reached what they put forward.” In another narration, the Prophet said, “When your companion dies, then leave him alone without speaking badly about him.” Source: Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 1329 Qais ibn Sa’d reported: A funeral passed by the Messenger of Allah, ...

Note that the hadith narrated by imam at-Tirmidhi in three versions (here the 3rd, while the 2nd is only a commentary on the first saying that 'Abdurrahman ibn 'Awf narrated it once without quoting his own name -so he quoted only nine sahaba-) appears in sunan ibn Majah, sunan abi Dawod, Musnad Ahmad and many other sources too. The list of sahaba quoted in ...

A Sunni view on the issue is that these are not accurate. First, it is not established that the prophet gave Fadak to her. Contrary to that there are hadith stating that she asked for it during the prophet's lifetime but the prophet refused her request. See e.g. [Sunnan Abi Dawood; Kitab Al-Kharaj, Wal-Fai' Wal-Imarah; hadith 2966]. Abu Bakr refused the ...

The noble Sahabah had too much Taqwa (fear of God) to be lying against Allah's (ﷻ) religion. But the same cannot be said for random unknown Wikipedia writers. For example, they say the statement of ibn Abbas doesn't forbid it but in that statement Ibn Abbas is only saying that masturbation compared to fornication is "better" i.e, the lesser of two evils. ...

I'm sure i saw a Question about this hadith (or maybe an answer including it) here before. But the answer is simple this is a Narration from Sahih al Bukhari. And Abu Huraira (May Allah be pleased with him) didn't change anything (and Allah knows best) but when you read the statement(s) you find out it has two separated parts. One part where Abu Huraira (...

Imam Ali a.s. washed him directly but companions of Imam Ali a.s. helped him in pouring water and etc. also the first one who offered the Janasa prayer was Imam Ali a.s. and then male Sahaba and then female Sahaba. The Prophet SAWW was buried in his own home and the room was small few persons could enter and offer prayer and all could not pray together. ...

First of all Allah the Almighty Himself has made a promise (HE even has sworn) to preserve it (15:9): Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur'an and indeed, We will be its guardian. We only know about the human part of the preservation I'll quote what come in to my mind: Tawatur this means Quran has always (from the time of sahaba on) been transmitted by ...

This is indeed a strange but acceptable kunyah or surname knowing that abu Bakr (whos real name is Abdullah ibn abi Quhafah) had three sons: Abdurrahman, Abudllah and Muhammad and three daughters: Asma'. 'Aisha and Umm Kalthoom. So it would rather sound logical if his kunyah or nickname was abu Abdarrahman or Abu Abdullah or ... or abu Umm Kalthoom. Scholars ...

Perhaps the most significant reason of this issue could be related to this matter that as an unwritten general rule, parents (both of father and mother) are considered as the most dear persons from the viewpoint of everybody. Hence in the mentioned issue as you said: Let(or Shall) my parents be sacrificed for you" while talking to Prophet Muhammad (...

Most of the Shi'ite sects including the Twelvers, which form majority of them, cannot resolve with the matter. But there are some minorities like Zaidiya who believe in the uprightness of the three Companions or at least do not curse them. Also there are those who call themselves as 'rational Shia' who seem to compromise with the hostility towards the ...

السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ Imam Nafi' (RA) further states, 'And ibn Umar, Radi-Allahu anhu, during Hajj or Umrah used to hold on to his beard with his fist and cut off whatever was in excess of that.' (Bukhari vol.2 pg.875; Kitab-ul-Libas no.5892) Note: This hadith has also been narrated by Sayyiduna Abu Huraira [...

Khulafa ar-Raashideen refers to the four rightly-guided Caliphs i.e. Abu Bakr As-Siddeeq (radiallahu anhu), Umar bin al-khattab al-Farooq (radiallahu anhu), Uthmaan bin Affaan (radiallahu anhu) and Ali bin Abee Talib (radiallahu anhu). Sahaba refers to all the the companions of the Prophet (salallahu alayhi wassalam). The four Caliphs were also among the ...

By name, as the answer and comment above indicate, it was only Zaid (RA). Generally, all of them in this verse: Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah ; and those with him are forceful against the disbelievers, merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and prostrating [in prayer], seeking bounty from Allah and [His] pleasure. Their mark is on their faces ...

Yes zaid is the one mentioned in Quran. Have a read at this ayah **وَإِذْ تَقُولُ لِلَّذِي أَنْعَمَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَأَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِ أَمْسِكْ عَلَيْكَ زَوْجَكَ وَاتَّقِ اللَّهَ وَتُخْفِي فِي نَفْسِكَ مَا اللَّهُ مُبْدِيهِ وَتَخْشَى النَّاسَ وَاللَّهُ أَحَقُّ أَن تَخْشَاهُ ۖ فَلَمَّا قَضَىٰ *زَيْدٌ مِّنْهَا وَطَرًا زَوَّجْنَاكَهَا لِكَيْ لَا ...

All perfect praise be to Allah First of all i would like to encourage you on starting exploration of ahadees, but i would like to add that you need to keep in contact with a good shiekh al hadith for getting all the answers of your questions side by side, and have a book on history of sunni ahadees, their rules and history, such book will also be suggested ...

Animal fighting is forbidden in Islam. There is a hadith on it in Sunan Abu Dawud and Jamee at-Tirmizhi: نهى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم عن التحريش بين البهائم The Messenger of Allah ﷺ prohibited instigating fights between beasts. It is also rationally evil because it is cruelty to animals causing suffering and possibly even death without any ...

It depends on what you mean by "authenticity". This story is narrated as an athar (anecdote), where authenticity for historical quotation is not held to the same level as hadith, nor follow the same methodology. From a chain of narration aspect, holding the story to hadith standards, it is severed and has unknown people, so it is not to be considered ...

The Sahaba (who comprise of the Muhajirun and Ansar) are deemed trustworthy for many reasons: Allah attests to their truthfulness and success لِلْفُقَرَاء الْمُهَاجِرِينَ الَّذِينَ أُخْرِجُوا مِن دِيارِهِمْ وَأَمْوَالِهِمْ يَبْتَغُونَ فَضْلاً مِّنَ اللَّهِ وَرِضْوَاناً وَيَنصُرُونَ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ أُوْلَئِكَ هُمُ الصَّادِقُونَ . وَالَّذِينَ ...

Yes, the partial quote provided is by Ibn Taymiyyah, but as typically is the case, the quote is either chopped, taken out of context, or misquoted altogether.

The athar attributed to Umar was documented in Sharh Zād al-Mustaqni' by Mohammad al-Mukhtār ash-Sahanqīti. It is about when 'Umar was judging a case in court. When he told one of the witnesses that he did not know him, a man among the attendees rose and said that he knew the witness, so 'Umar questioned him: فجاءه برجل فقال عمر للرجل: أتعرفه؟ قال: أعرفه ...

Note that the mosque in medina was only built after the hijra of the Prophet (), so one can only tell (assume) that the sahaba or sahabi who were/was sent to teach the people of Yatrib about Islam and the Qur'an were/was the person who used to lead the prayers. In sahih al-Bukhari we may read: The first people who came to us (in Medina) were Mus'ab bin `...
