Usually in month of Moharram, Shias are criticized for Matam (self beating) & Noha (Wailing). Claims are made that if you even cry, this goes against “patience”.

Though in Quran Allah says in Surat Yousaf

  1.          وَتَوَلَّىٰ عَنْهُمْ وَقَالَ يَا أَسَفَىٰ عَلَىٰ يُوسُفَ وَابْيَضَّتْ عَيْنَاهُ مِنَ الْحُزْنِ فَهُوَ كَظِيمٌ

            And he turned away from them, and said: “How great is my grief for Joseph!” And his eyes became white with sorrow, and he fell into silent melancholy.

Interestingly, narrations are presented from Sahih Bukhari and Muslim as if they are Hujjat/Proof upon Shias. For example, this Narration is often quoted

1294 – حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو نُعَيْمٍ، حَدَّثَنَا سُفْيَانُ، حَدَّثَنَا زُبَيْدٌ اليَامِيُّ، عَنْ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، عَنْ مَسْرُوقٍ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ، قَالَ: قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: «لَيْسَ مِنَّا مَنْ لَطَمَ الخُدُودَ، وَشَقَّ الجُيُوبَ، وَدَعَا بِدَعْوَى الجَاهِلِيَّةِ» Read the rest of this entry »

IslamqQA is a salafi website, under the patronage of Sheikh Mohammad Salih al-Munjid. He is student of Ibn Baaz, Albani, Uthmain and others. Following words are taken from this website, and I have added screen shots at the end of translation. I gave my comments in italics.

On this website, it is mentioned

يذكر المؤرخون والمحدِّثون حادثةً في صدر التاريخ ، فيها ذكر قدوم عمر بن الخطاب وطائفة من أصحابه بيتَ فاطمةَ بنتِ رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ، يطلبُ تقديم البيعة لأبي بكر الصديق ، رضي الله عنهم جميعا .

Let us share a Narration from Sunan Darmi, 5/1365

2195 – أَخْبَرَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ الْمُبَارَكِ، حَدَّثَنِي الْوَلِيدُ بْنُ مُسْلِمٍ، حَدَّثَنِي ابْنُ جَابِرٍ، عَنْ خَالِدِ بْنِ اللَّجْلَاجِ، وَسَأَلَهُ، مَكْحُولٌ أَنْ يُحَدِّثَهُ، قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ عَبْدَ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنَ عَائِشٍ، يَقُولُ: سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللہ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ [ص:1366] يَقُولُ: «رَأَيْتُ رَبِّي فِي أَحْسَنِ صُورَةٍ» قَالَ: فِيمَ يَخْتَصِمُ الْمَلَأُ الْأَعْلَى؟ فَقُلْتُ: «أَنْتَ أَعْلَمُ يَا رَبِّ» ، قَالَ: ” فَوَضَعَ كَفَّهُ بَيْنَ كَتِفَيَّ فَوَجَدْتُ بَرْدَهَا بَيْنَ ثَدْيَيَّ، [ص:1367] فَعَلِمْتُ مَا فِي السَّمَوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ، وَتَلَا {وَكَذَلِكَ نُرِي إِبْرَاهِيمَ مَلَكُوتَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَلِيَكُونَ مِنَ الْمُوقِنِينَ}

Holy Prophet said: I saw My Lord in best of Shape. He asked me: You know why there is a fight in Higher sky? I replied: You know more O Lord. So He placed His Hand on my Chest, and I could feel the coldness of it. And then I came to know what is in Skies and Earth. And then Holy Prophet recited the verse which states that this is how We showed Ibrahim kingdom of Skies and Earth so that He becomes in believers. 

Researcher, Sheikh Hussein Salim Asad termed the Chain Saheeh. 

Similar Narration is present in Saheeh Tirmidi, Research Albany, 3/316-317,and Albany termed it Saheeh. 

Ibn Taimiyyah is called Sheikh-ul-Islam in Salafi world. Let us see what He said about This Surah. He mentions in Minhaj-us-Sunnah, 7/179

وَسُورَةُ ” هَلْ أَتَى ” مَكِّيَّةٌ بِاتِّفَاقِ أَهْلِ التَّفْسِيرِ وَالنَّقْلِ، لَمْ يَقُلْ أَحَدٌ مِنْهُمْ: إِنَّهَا مَدَنِيَّةٌ Read the rest of this entry »

Hazrat Abu dhar is one of the great Companions of Holy Prophet (asws). Let us see a Narration to know whether He went to Rabda on His own wish. Ibn Sa’ad mentions in His Tabaqat, 4/171-172

قَالَ: أَخْبَرَنَا الْفَضْلُ بْنُ دُكَيْنٍ قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا جَعْفَرُ بْنُ بُرْقَانَ عَنْ ثَابِتِ بْنِ الْحَجَّاجِ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللہ بْنِ سِيدَانَ السُّلَمِيِّ قَالَ: تَنَاجَى أَبُو ذَرٍّ وَعُثْمَانُ حَتَّى ارْتَفَعَتْ أَصْوَاتُهُمَا.
ثُمَّ انْصَرَفَ أَبُو ذَرٍّ مُتَبَسِّمًا فَقَالَ لَهُ النَّاسُ: مَا لَكَ وَلأَمِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ؟ قَالَ: سَامِعٌ مُطِيعٌ وَلَوْ أَمَرَنِي أَنْ آتِيَ صَنْعَاءَ أَوْ عَدْنَ ثُمَّ اسْتَطَعْتُ أَنْ أَفْعَلَ لَفَعَلْتُ. وَأَمَرَهُ عثمان أن يخرج إلى الربذة..

I have written about This topic before, and given examples of Tehreef in Musnad Ahmad. You can read about that in following links 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

Let us see another example

We find a Narration in Musnad Ahmad, 28/195, which states that shadad Abi Ammar met Wathila and there were few people with him. And Imam Ali was mentioned. When They left, Wathila told them that should I tell You what I saw with Holy Prophet (asws). Shadad told him: Yes. He said that He went to House of BiBi Fatima (asws) to ask for Imam Ali. She told him that He had gone to Holy Prophet. So He sat waiting for Him. Then He came alongwith Holy Prophet, Imam Hasan and Imam Hussein, and they had held hands of each other. So He combined them in His Cloak. And recited verse of Purification. And that They are His AhluBait, and They have more right on Him. Arabic text for the Narration is:- Read the rest of this entry »

There is a Narration in Musnad Ahmad, 28/373

17144 – حَدَّثَنَا الضَّحَّاكُ بْنُ مَخْلَدٍ، عَنْ ثَوْرٍ، عَنْ خَالِدِ بْنِ مَعْدَانَ، عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ عَمْرٍو السُّلَمِيِّ، عَنْ عِرْبَاضِ بْنِ سَارِيَةَ، قَالَ: صَلَّى لَنَا رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ الْفَجْرَ، ثُمَّ أَقْبَلَ عَلَيْنَا، فَوَعَظَنَا مَوْعِظَةً بَلِيغَةً، ذَرَفَتْ لَهَا الْأَعْيُنُ  ، وَوَجِلَتْ مِنْهَا الْقُلُوبُ، قُلْنَا أَوْ قَالُوا: يَا رَسُولَ اللهِ، كَأَنَّ هَذِهِ مَوْعِظَةُ مُوَدِّعٍ، فَأَوْصِنَا. قَالَ: ” أُوصِيكُمْ بِتَقْوَى اللهِ وَالسَّمْعِ وَالطَّاعَةِ وَإِنْ كَانَ عَبْدًا حَبَشِيًّا، فَإِنَّهُ مَنْ يَعِشْ مِنْكُمْ يَرَى بَعْدِي اخْتِلَافًا كَثِيرًا، فَعَلَيْكُمْ بِسُنَّتِي وَسُنَّةِ الْخُلَفَاءِ الرَّاشِدِينَ الْمَهْدِيِّينَ، وَعَضُّوا عَلَيْهَا بِالنَّوَاجِذِ، وَإِيَّاكُمْ وَمُحْدَثَاتِ الْأُمُورِ، فَإِنَّ كُلَّ مُحْدَثَةٍ بِدْعَةٌ، وَإِنَّ كُلَّ بِدْعَةٍ ضَلَالَةٌ “ Read the rest of this entry »

Let us see a Narration from Sunan Darmi, 1/56

92 – حدثنا أبو النعمان ثنا سعيد بن زيد ثنا عمرو بن مالك النكري حدثنا أبو الجوزاء أوس بن عبد الله قال : قحط أهل المدينة قحطا شديدا فشكوا إلى عائشة فقالت انظروا قبر النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم فاجعلوا منه كووا إلى السماء حتى لا يكون بينه وبين السماء سقف قال ففعلوا فمطرنا مطرا حتى نبت العشب وسمنت الإبل حتى تفتقت من الشحم فسمي عام الفتق

Some Scholars of AhluSunnah will term Shias Kafir because They believe in Wilayat-e-Takwiniyya. Though interestingly, they also hold a concept similar to this by the Name of al-Tatheer al-Kauni (التاثیر الکونی ) I had written an article on This Subject before, and that can be read HERE.

Let us see What Scholar of AhluSunnah says about Umar, and His Powers. Shams-ud-Deen Sakhawi writes in His book, al-Tohfa tul Latifa fi Tarkeeh Madina al-Shareefa, 2/337

وقد أطاعته العناصر الأربع فإنه كتب لنيل مصر وقد بلغه أن عادته أن لا يوفي إلا ببنت تلقى فيه فقطع الله من كتابه هذه العادة المذمومة والهوىحيث بلغ صوته إلى سارية والتراب حين زلزلت الأرض فضربها بالدرة/فسكنت والنار حيث قال لشخص: أدرك بيتك فقد احترق. Read the rest of this entry »

Allama Jalal-ud-Deen Sayooti is considered among Great Scholars of AhluSunnah. Many of His books have got a lot of fame like Tafsir Dur-e-Manthur, al-Itqaan fi U’loom-ul-Quran etc. I will quote from His book, al-Hawi lil Fatawa ( الحاوی للفتاوی ), and Worthy Reader is free to deduce His own conclusion. We consult Vol 2, Page 317 onwards:-

وَفَصَّلَ الْقَاضِي أَبُو بَكْرِ بْنُ الْعَرَبِيِّ فَقَالَ: رُؤْيَةُ النَّبِيِّ – صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ – بِصِفَتِهِ الْمَعْلُومَةِ إِدْرَاكٌ عَلَى الْحَقِيقَةِ، وَرُؤْيَتُهُ عَلَى غَيْرِ صِفَتِهِ إِدْرَاكٌ لِلْمِثَالِ، وَهَذَا الَّذِي قَالَهُ فِي غَايَةِ الْحُسْنِ، وَلَا يَمْتَنِعُ رُؤْيَةُ ذَاتِهِ الشَّرِيفَةِ بِجَسَدِهِ وَرُوحِهِ، وَذَلِكَ لِأَنَّهُ – صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ – وَسَائِرَ الْأَنْبِيَاءِ أَحْيَاءٌ رُدَّتْ إِلَيْهِمْ أَرْوَاحُهُمْ بَعْدَ مَا قُبِضُوا وَأُذِنَ لَهُمْ بِالْخُرُوجِ مِنْ قُبُورِهِمْ وَالتَّصَرُّفِ فِي الْمَلَكُوتِ الْعُلْوِيِّ وَالسُّفْلِيِّ،  Read the rest of this entry »
