• Lögnaren Ahmed al Hassan – Dajjal och hans tal om testamente

    I dagarna har några shiamuslimer och jag stått och diskuterad med en ny kult, som spridit sig bland de okunniga ibland oss. Jag var rätt öppen för dem, men efter bara några dagars diskussioner, insåg jag att dessa stackare var helt ute och cyklade. Denna Ahmed al Hassan, även kallad den 13 imamen, eller den förste av 12 Mehdis, efter den 12 Imamen, får Khums av sina anhängare, han går hårt åt de lärda i den shiiiska världen och enligt många hadither från Ahlul Bayt, är han en av många dajjals, lögnare och fiender till Islam. Ett av de bevisen han och hans anhängare för fram, är ett testamente de menar kommer från Profeten Muhammed, här har en vän till mig, med hjälp av våra hadith böcker, motbevisat detta testamente:

    (If you cannot see this note, please PM me).Salam. I ask that those who are the followers of Ahmad al-Hasan sincerely read this note with an open mind. You may skip the introduction as it only contains a brief background.

     

    Introduction

     

    I am alarmed at the rapid growth and spread of a new sect that has been attracting converts from even Serbia (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WwoqPLW2vE&feature=related). The converts see the arguments and advertising from the successful and impressive missionary work from this new sect and due to their great ignorance don’t see the many problems and weaknesses with these arguments. The reasons as to why such ignorance existed in the first place is beyond the scope of this note.

     

    I am talking about the ”Ansar” who follow a man apparently called Ahmad al-Hasan. I’ll give a very brief background before I move onto the main discussion of this note. This man appeared after the fall of the tyrant Saddam and claims/claimed to be a descendant of the 12th Imam, Imam al-Qaim. Some news articles reported that he had been killed in battle in about 2004 though the Ansar deny that this was him. Though I do wonder why he doesn’t make public appearances. In any case, Ahmad al-Hasan does not claim to be an Imam, but a Mahdi. What exactly this station of ”Mahdi-hood” involves, such as qualities of infallibility and knowledge, I don’t know. Whether the Mahdi (and the future Mahdis) are successors of the 12th Imam or his deputies, I don’t know; though the 12th Imam is still currently alive for them.

     

     

    Examining an important piece of evidence: the hadeeth of the will of the Prophet concerning 12 mahdis

     

    One of the main pieces of evidence that is given, time and time again, by the Ansar is a hadeeth. This hadeeth claims to be a will from the Prophet to Ameer al-Mu’mineen and the will says that there will be 12 Imams and then 12 mahdis. Therefore, it is worth examining the authenticity of this hadeeth.

     

    The hadeeth can be found translated on a website by the Ansar http://the-savior.com/home/the-will-of-the-prophet-mohammad-pbuh-on-the-night-of-his-death.html and the hadeeth says:

     

    The Prophet Muhammad (may peace be upon him and his family) said to Ali Ibn Abi Taleb during the night of his death:

     

    “O Father of Al Hassan, bring me a leaf and a paper”, and he dictated his will until he came to a position where he said ”O Ali, there will be twelve Imams and after them there will be twelve Mahdi’s. You, O Ali, are the first of the twelve Imams, God has named you in his heavens Ali Al Mortada,The Prince of the believers, Grand truthful, the bright Farouq (Judge and differentiating between true and false), the trusted, and the Mahdi (rightly guided). These names may not be truly attributed to other than you. O Ali, you are my guardian on my own family, their living and their dead.  My women, whom you maintain shall find me tomorrow, and whom you reject I am acquitted of her. I will not see her and she will not see me on the day of resurrection, and you are the successor (Khalifa) on my nation after me. If the day of death comes to you, hand it over to my son Hassan the very beneficial.  Then if the day of death comes to him, let him hand it over to my son Al Hussein, the Martyr, the Pure and the Assassinated. If the day of death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, the master of the servants and worshipers Ali.If the day of death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Mohamed Al Baqir.If the day of death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Jaâfar Al Sadiq (the honest).If the day of death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Moussa Al Kadhim (The Patient).If the day of death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son,  Ali Al Reda.If the day of death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Mohamed Al Thiqa (The Trustworthy).If the day of death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Ali Al Nasih (The Advisor). If the day death of comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Al Hassan Al Fadil. If the day of death comes to him, let him hand it over to his son, Mohammed the Mandate of the Holy Family of Mohamad Peace be upon them all. These are the twelve Imams. Then there will be twelve Mahdi’s after them. then when Allah receiveth him, let him hand it over to his son, the first of the close ones, he has three names, one like mine and my Father’s: Abdollah (Servant of God), Ahmad and the third name is The Mahdi (the guided) and he is the first Believer”

    Do not, dear reader, believe this hadeeth to be authentic simply because it is found in our (Shi`a) books. We do not accept any hadeeth found in the books. Rather, we subject it to the tests and criteria necessary to determine authenticity. The vast majority of scholars recorded hadeeth, even if they were not authentic. They were more interested in collecting hadeeths than in filtering and strictly collecting only the authentic.

    For example, one of our great scholars called shaykh as-Sadooq wrote a book on the Ghaybah and the 12th Imam entitled Kamaal ad-Deen. In this book, as-Sadooq says that a particular narrator called Ahmed bin Hilaal is untrustworthy and was rejected by the generation of scholars prior to him. Yet as-Sadooq quotes hadeeths from him elsewhere in the book, despite weakening this narrator. (See page 75 of Kamaal ad-Deen in which Sadooq says ”Moreover, the narrator of this report is Ahmad bin Hilal and this person is not reliable in the view of our senior scholars…”)

     

    Do not, dear reader, be impressed by the number of sources listed. If we actually look at these sources, and determine who their authors are, and when these books were written, then we see that most of these references are late; i.e. they are relying on earlier, ”primary” material. The only classical source there is Kitab al-Ghaybah by shaykh at-Tusi. The other sources, e.g. Bihar al-Anwar, are quoting from this book. Thus there is only one real source for this hadeeth.

    I opened up Kitab al-Ghaybah online and located the hadeeth. The following source was given by shaykh at-Tusi for the hadeeth. The source is the chain of transmission of the hadeeth:

     

    111 – أخبرنا جماعة ، عن أبي عبد الله الحسين بن علي بن سفيان البزوفري ، عن علي بن سنان الموصلي العدل ، عن علي بن الحسين ، عن أحمد بن محمد بن الخليل ، عن جعفر بن أحمد المصري  ، عن عمه الحسن بن علي ، عن أبيه ، عن أبي عبد الله جعفر بن محمد ، عن أبيه الباقر ، عن أبيه ذي الثفنات سيد العابدين ، عن أبيه الحسين الزكي الشهيد ، عن أبيه أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم – في الليلة

    (The source is just a list of names so does not need to be translated)

     

    Let us examine this chain of narrators and see if the narrators are reliable:

     

    First narrator: جماعة. Shaykh at-Tusi begins the chain by saying that he got the hadeeth from ”a group” of people. These group of people include trustworthy individuals.

     

    Second narrator: الحسين بن علي بن سفيان البزوفري. This person is called trustworthy by the classical scholar, shaykh an-Najashi. Shaykh an-Najashi is the most important scholar when it comes to trying to find out who was trustworthy, had status, etc. amongst the Shi`a narrators of hadeeths.

     

    Third narrator: علي بن سنان الموصلي العدل. He is ”majhool” (unknown). This term is used for narrators who the classical scholars gave no comments on their honesty, accuracy, and hence ultimate trustworthiness, or lack of. Thus, if a narrator has his many details mentioned about him, but no comments on his trustworthiness, then we call him majhool, as despite the amount of knowledge we find given on the narrator, we still do not know if they were trustworthy. They may have been liars or very inaccurate in transmitting a hadeeth.

    Actually, for this particular narrator, he is not an ordinary majhool (unknown) narrator. He does not have an entry in the 6 classical Imami (Shi`a) books of narrators. (The later books are almost entirely based on these 6 books). Actually there are narrators who shaykh at-Tusi gives an entry but is only able to mention a couple of facts, such as the name of the narrator, and the city in which the narrator resided in; and this demonstrate that Tusi knew next to nothing about them. However this particular narrator does not even have an entry in any of the six classical books. This means the classical scholars knew next to nothing about him (assuming they were even sure about his existence), as none of them were able to give him an entry. It also means that he held no status amongst the Shi`a, as the ordinary, famous, infamous, or great scholars and narrators were known, (even if on the odd occasion no comment was given on their trustworthiness). The late scholar of hadeeths and narrators, sayyid al-Khui said about this particular narrator: كان يوصف بها بعض علماء العامة، فلا يبعد أن يكون الرجل من العامة; i.e. this narrator is mentioned in Sunni rijaal books, and so it would not be impossible to imagine that he might be some sort of Sunni. I did not look up what Sunni books say about him.

     

    Fourth narrator:علي بن الحسين. There are many narrators who had this name. If we are unable to prove the identity of a narrator in the chain, then we treat the narrator as effectively majhool. For there were people with this name who were great trustworthy narrators and people who were weak (i.e. untrustworthy).

     

    Fifth narrator: أحمد بن محمد بن الخليل . He too is majhool. Actually he is also not found in the 6 classical Imami (Shi`a) books of narrators. He is not even found in mu`jam ar-rijaal; this is Khui’s encyclopaedia of narrators, in which he attempt to gather nearly every single narrator mentioned in Shiai books.

     

    Sixth narrator:جعفر بن أحمد المصري . majhool. He also does not even have an entry in the 6 books. He is found in Sunni books of narrators, and there he is called a liar.

     

    Seventh narrator: الحسن بن علي . Unless I am mistaken, he is also majhool and not found in the 6 books, nor in Khui’s book mu`jam. In my search for him, I found that some followers of Ahmad al-Hasan proposed a solution to this narrator being majhool. They claimed that this narrator is a narrator called al-Hussain bin Ali, someone trustworthy, and that his name was mispelt as al-Hassan bin Ali. The problem is that we cannot just change the name of narrators as we please; otherwise we could cause havoc just by making accusations. We need to have good evidence to establish that the name was miscopied. All the books to my knowledge which quote the book Kitab al-Ghaybah by shaykh at-Tusi, have copied the narrators name as ”al-Hasan” not as ”al-Hussain” so it cannot be a copyist error.

     

    Eighth narrator: the father of the 7th narrator. Since we do not conclusively know who the 7th narrator is, we do not know the 8th narrator is.

     

    The rest of the narrators in the chain are the Imams, and they are, without doubt, trustworthy.

     

    So in examining the chain of narrators, it can be seen that the chain is full of very majhool (unknown) people. These people were no ordinary narrators, but people who were so unknown that the classical scholars were unable to record details about them. It could easily be the case that one of these narrators was a liar who invented some names and claimed that he got the hadeeth through them. When a hadeeth has a chain with just one person who is majhool, then even if much was known about them, we still grade the hadeeth as dha`eef (weak); this is because without knowledge of that person’s honesty and accuracy in transmission of hadeeths, we are being far too easy-going with something as serious as a source of our religion, and would be in error if we acted on what turned out to be a lie even though we knew there were doubts in the authenticity of that particular source. However this particular chain does not have one majhool person; upto 6 out of the 8 narrators are majhool. And these people are not ordinary majhool narrators, but some of them do not even have entries in the books dedicated to profiling the narrators in the religion; thus they had no status. Therefore, this means the chain is not just dha`eef (weak), but dha`eef jiddan (very weak).

     

    Another factor considered in analysis of the authenticity of a hadeeth, is the number of chains, i.e. sources, that a hadeeth has been recieved from. Hadeeths that have been recieved through many different chains are obviously much more likely to be authentic; for it is easier for one person to fabricate a hadeeth or make a serious mistake in transmission, then it is for a group. This particular hadeeth has only come down through a single chain and hence it is called khabar al-ahad, which is the weakest category of hadeeths. (We call the hadeeth ”ghareeb” meaning rare, for it is a rare hadeeth coming down through a single chain).

     

    The above analysis is through the methodology of `ilm ad-dirayah. I.e. primarily examining the reliability of a hadeeth through its source.

     

    Other methodologies are called qaraa’in, i.e. contextual factors/evidences.

     

    One contextual evidence in this case would be the following:

    The content of the hadeeth is very important: it records the will of the Prophet. This will tells us about who the future guides and leaders of Islam will be! Actually it even goes further. It is attributed to the Messenger of God and claims that he mentioned all 12 names of the Imams. Such hadeeths are rare. If this hadeeth is authentic, then we would have expected to find many Shi`i narrators/scholars passing it down to their students. For, afterall, if they went to lengths to preserve equally important hadeeths and far less important hadeeths, then why would they not preserve this? This hadeeth does not come down to us through any of the famous or great Shi`i scholars. There were many narrators who were judged to be trustworthy. However some of them are far more prestigious than others, due to their greatness, knowledge, closeness to the Imam of their time, piety, great accuracy, and so on. Such narrators include Zuraara, who was called the most knowledgable Shi`i in the time of Imam al-Baqir, or Yunus bin Abd ar-Rahmaan, who was very dear to the Imams, or Muhammed bin Abi Umayr who was a great scholar specialising in the collection and subsequent spreading of hadeeths. Yet we find that this very important hadeeth has not been passed down by any of these individuals or any other great individuals.

     

    For example, Muhammed bin Yahya al-Attaar was a great narrator and one of the ”shaykh”s (teachers) of shaykh al-Kulayni (author of monumental work al-Kafi). He reported a hadeeth attributed to Ameer al-Mu’mineen to al-Kulayni which mentions the names of the 12 Imams. Hence he considered the content very valuable. However, he expressed doubt in its authenticity, because it had come through a narrator of questionable reliability, saying ”O Abu Ja‘far, I wish this would have been narrated through a chain of narrators other then Ahmad ibn ‘Abdallah”; (see al-Kafi, volume 1, page 526). Despite this, he (and other great narrators) still narrated it to Kulayni.

     

    Another contextual evidence is the way that the classical scholars treated this hadeeth. They are the classical scholars and so had access to greater amount of works and learnt from the scholars who lived in the time of the minor ghaybah and who also learnt from the companions of the Imams themselves. Thus, they had more access to more information which indicated whether hadeeths were authentic or not. If a classical scholar like shaykh as-Sadooq or shaykh at-Tusi quotes a hadeeth in their book, does this mean that they think the hadeeth is authentic? No; the scholars quoted authentic hadeeths and weak hadeeths. Refer to the example of Ahmad bin Hilaal. Thus, that shaykh at-Tusi quotes this hadeeth in one of his books does not mean he considered it authentic. Actually, we find that shaykh at-Tusi only quoted this hadeeth once, to our knowledge. Yet we see that the content of the hadeeth is very important. If shaykh at-Tusi had considered it authentic, then we would have expected him to have quoted it in his other works, especially his greater works. You will notice that the hadeeth explicitly names the 12 imams. Such hadeeths are uncommon and were valued greatly by the Shi`a (though whether they are authentic is a whole other story). Refer to the example of Muhammed bin Yahya. Shaykh al-Kulayni even dedicades at least one chapter to hadeeths which explicitly name the 12 Imams in his al-Kafi; yet he does not quote it. And neither does Sadooq. And Tusi quotes it once.

     

    In addition to this, and more importantly, none of these classical scholars, in their works, especially their works on aqeeda, said that the belief of the Shi`a is that there are 12 Imams, and then these are followed by 12 mahdis. For example, shaykh as-Sadooq in his book, itiqadat al-imamiyya (”creeds of the shia”), does not mention this. Nor does shaykh al-Mufeed, in the book which he wrote as a correction to Sadooq’s book, ever correct Sadooq on not mentioning this. Had this been part of the aqeeda of the Shi`a, they would have mentioned it. Had they considered this particular hadeeth authentic, they would have acted on it by believing in the idea of 12 mahdis who succeed 12 Imams.

    If one were to accuse them of dishonesty in this case, then one renders them dishonest and untrustworthy, and hence once should not even accept any of their books, including the book in which this hadeeth is found.

     

    Another relevant contextual evidence is to see whether content of this hadeeth contradicts other hadeeths. When a hadeeth with a ”hasan” (good but not great) chain contradicts a hadeeth with a ”saheeh” (great) chain, then we attempt to reconcile the two, perhaps giving more weight to the more authentic, latter hadeeth. We also examine the former hadeeth and look for illaal (hidden defects in the chain or content indicating inauthenticity). If reconcilation is not possible then the hadeeth is rejected as we trust the hadeeth that come through a great chain. This is because there is usually a defect in a hasan chain, such as known inaccuracies in transmission of a narrator.

     

    However this hadeeth of the will does not have a good chain. It has a weak chain. When a weak chain hadeeth contradicts authentic hadeeths, it has a very low status and is called ”munkar”. The hadeeth of the will seems to contradict other hadeeeths. For example, it says that the 12 mahdis will succeed the 12 Imams. It implies that the 1st mahdi will succeed after the 12th Imam dies. However, numerous hadeeths report that the Earth is not allowed to be without an Imam; and that if this were to happen, the Earth would destroy its inhabitants.

     

    This hadeeth conflicts with the following hadeeth which says there are 12 exectors of the will:

     

    42 – حدثنا أبي رضي الله عنه قال : حدثنا سعد بن عبد الله قال : حدثنا محمد ابن الحسين بن أبي الخطاب ، عن الحسن بن محبوب ، عن أبي الجارود ، عن أبي جعفر عليه السلام ، عن جابر بن عبد الله الأنصاري قال : دخلت على فاطمة عليها السلام وبين يديها لوح فيه أسماء الأوصياء فعددت اثني عشر أحدهم القائم ، ثلاثة منهم محمد وثلاثة منهم علي

    [Shaykh as-Sadooq in his book al-Khisaal, page 477 said:] My father, may God be pleased with him, narrated to us, saying: Sa’ad bin Abdullah narrated to us saying: Muhammed bin al-Hussain bin al-Khattaab narrated to us from al-Hasan bin Mahboob from Abi’l Jarood from [Imam] Abu Ja‘far [al-Baqir, peace be upon him] from Jabir ibn ‘Abdallah al-Ansari said:”Once I went to see Fatima (a) and I saw with her a tablet in which the names of the (al-awsiyaa’) executors of the wills were written. I then counted them to twelve. The last one’s name was al-Qa’im. The names of three of them was Muhammad and the names of another four was Ali.

     

    This hadeeth is composed only of great narrators except for Abu’l Jarood. However, the content of this hadeeth matches history and so it is likely that Abu’l Jarood, who was initially trustworthy but then later became unacceptable, narrated this before he became unreliable. In any case, this hadeeth has a much stronger chain of authenticity than the hadeeth of the will. So since the two conflict and reconciliation is not possible (as one indicates 24 exectors of the will and the other says 12), then if we are to choose between them, we choose this hadeeth.

     

    The hadeeth of the will also seems to contradict the beliefs of the Ansar. For it says that the 12 mahdis will succeed the 12 Imams, whereas the 1st mahdi, Ahmad al-Hasan, has appeared despite the 12th Imam still being alive in the belief of the Ansar and despite the 12th Imam still not having returned.

    Furthermore, what is the role of Ahmad al-Hasan? Is he acting on the orders of the 12th Imam? If it is said so, then the time has changed from Ghaybat al-Kubra (the major Ghaybah) to Ghaybat as-Sughra (the minor Ghaybah). Why? The difference between the two Ghaybahs is that the Imam had Safeers (chosen representatives) and the Shi`a were able to communicate with the Imam through these Safeers. Thus if Ahmad al-Hasan is officially representing the Imam or acting on his orders, or anything else that effectively makes a Safeer, then we have re-entered Ghaybat as-Sughra.

    This would contradict hadeeths which say there are two Ghaybahs. For example, shaykh al-Kulayni narrates in al-Kafi, volume 1, page 341:

     

    [19] مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى عَنْ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْحُسَيْنِ عَنِ ابْنِ مَحْبُوبٍ عَنْ إِسْحَاقَ بْنِ عَمَّارٍ قَالَ قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ع لِلْقَائِمِ غَيْبَتَانِ إِحْدَاهُمَا قَصِيرَةٌ وَ الْأُخْرَى طَوِيلَةٌ الْغَيْبَةُ الْأُولَى لَا يَعْلَمُ بِمَكَانِهِ فِيهَا إِلَّا خَاصَّةُ شِيعَتِهِ وَ الْأُخْرَى لَا يَعْلَمُ بِمَكَانِهِ فِيهَا إِلَّا خَاصَّةُ مَوَالِيهِ

    Muhammad b. Yahya from Muhammad b. al-Husayn from Ibn Mahbub from Ishaq b. `Ammar. He said: Abu `Abdillah  said: The Qa’im has two ghaybas: The first of them is short, the other is long. In the first ghayba, his location will not be known except by the Khass (special) of his Shi`a. And in the other, his location will not be known except the Khass from his Mawali. (Grading: Saheeh or Muwwathaq (reliable))

     

    What has been quoted suffices to show the hadeeth of the will conflicts with other hadeeths, and so I will stop there.

     

    Finally, I wondered if the idea of 12 mahdis could be found in any other hadeeths. I looked in Kamal ad-Deen, the book by shaykh as-Sadooq on the Ghaybah, for more hadeeths on the 12 mahdis. Sadooq himself never says that there will be 12 mahdis after 12 imams as was pointed out earlier. Here all the relevant hadeeths in that book (except one which I will quote later):

     

    3 – Narrated to us Ahmad bin Ziyad bin Ja’far Hamdani: Narrated to us Ali bin Ibrahim bin Hashim from his father from Abdus Salam bin Salih Harawi that he said: Informed us Waki bin Jarrah from Rabi bin Saad from Abdur Rahman bin Salit that he said: Husain bin Ali bin Abi Talib (a.s.) said:“From us there are twelve Mahdis, the first of whom is Amirul Momineen Ali bin Abi Talib (a.s.) and the last of whom is my ninth descendant. And he is truly the Imam al-Qaim. Allah will enliven the earth after its death through him. And through him triumph His religion over all the religions even if the polytheists may dislike this. There will be occultation for him during which communities will apostize but others will remain steadfast on religion. They will be tortured and told: If you are true when will this promise be fulfilled? Know that one who observes patience during those tribulations will be like one who fights the holy war under the command of the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.).”

     

    6 – Narrated to us Muhammad bin Ali Majilaway and Muhammad bin Musa bin Mutawakkil – May Allah be pleased with them – they said: Narrated to us Muhammad bin Yahya al-Attar from Muhammad bin Hasan as-Saffar from Abi Talib Abdullah Ibne Salt Qummi from Uthman bin Isa from Sama-a bin Mehran that he said:

    “I, Abu Baseer and Muhammad bin Imran, slave of Abu Ja’far al-Baqir (a.s.) were in a house in Mecca. Muhammad bin Imran said: I heard Abi Abdullah (a.s.) say: We are the twelve Mahdis. Abu Baseer asked: Did you really hear this from Abi Abdullah as-Sadiq (a.s.)? He swore once or twice that he had heard it from him. Abu Baseer said: But I have heard it from Abu Ja’far (a.s.).”

    A similar tradition is narrated to us by Muhammad bin Hasan bin Ahmad bin Walid (r.a.) that he said: Narrated to us Muhammad bin Hasan as-Saffar from Abi Talib Abdullah bin Salt al-Qummi from Uthman bin Isa from Samaa-a bin Mehran.

     

    13 – Narrated to us Muhammad bin Ibrahim bin Ishaq Taliqani (r.a.): Narrated to us Ahmad bin Muhammad Hamdani: Narrated to us Abi Abdullah Asimi from Husain bin Qasim bin Ayyub from Hasan bin Muhammad bin Sama-a from Thabit Saigh from Abu Baseer from Abi Abdullah Sadiq (a.s.) that he heard him say:“From us there will be twelve Mahdis. Six have passed and six are remaining. Allah will do with the sixth as He pleases.”

     

    As you can see these hadeeths, which come through a variety of different sources, are saying that the 12 mahdis are the same as the 12 imams. I looked for a hadeeth in Kamal ad-Deen which spoke of the 12 mahdis as separate individuals to the 12 Imams. I found only one:

     

    56 – Narrated to us Ali bin Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Imran al-Daqqaq: Narrated to us Muhammad bin Abi Abdullah Kufi: Narrated to us Musa bin Imran Nakahi from his uncle Husain bin Yazid Naufali from Ali bin Abi Hamza from Abi Baseer that he said: I said to as-Sadiq Ja’far bin Muhammad (a.s.): O son of Allah’s Messenger, I have heard from your father that he said: “There will twelve mahdis after the Qaim?” Imam (a.s.) said: “He has said twelve mahdis not twelve Imams. They shall be our Shias who would call the people towards our Wilayat (guardianship) and Marefat (recognition) of our rights.”

     

    A quick analysis of the chain:

    1) Ali bin Ahmad is majhool according to sayyid al-Khui 2) Muhammad bin Abi Abdullah is trustworthy according to shaykh an-Najashi but also says he used to narrate alot from weak narrators 3) Musa bin Imran is majhool and does not have an entry in the six classical Imami (Shi`a) rijaal books 4) Husain bin Yazid Naufali is majhool 5) Ali bin Hamza is very weak and cursed for creating the Waqifi subsect of the Shi`a 6) Abi Baseer is particularly famous and is trustworthy

    Thus the source/chain is dha`eef jiddan (very weak).

     

    If we were to still look at the content of this hadeeth, then we must remember the numerous hadeeths from the Imam in which he says the Earth can never be without an Imam, and hence this hadeeth seems to conflict with the others. Also, in this  hadeeth, no special status is given to the 12 mahdis. Actually the word ”mahdi” is used literally to refer to 12 guided people, who would be the follower of the 12th Imam and tell people to follow him. Interestingly no mention of the mahdis being related to the 12 imams is mentioned. This differs to the presentation of the 12 mahdis by the hadeeth of the will.

     

    So in conclusion, the hadeeth of the will is dha`eef jiddan (very weak), lacks contextual evidences, fails some contextual evidences, and opposes some hadeeths. Therefore, it is unacceptable evidence.

     

    Do let me know if there are any mistakes. May Allah, azza wa jalla, guide us toward the truth.

    Quran 10:36 And most of them follow not except assumption. Indeed, assumption avails not against the truth at all. Indeed, Allah is Knowing of what they do.

    Gör istikhara med koranen och om det visar sig att han är lögnare via koranen, då ska jag hoppa framför ett tåg och Allah (swt) är mitt vittne. Du skriver mycket men du tar inte den enkla vägen genom Allah (swt) och frågor honom(swt). Du tror att du vet mer än Allah (swt) astakhfurallah. Gör Istikhara och lägg ut den på bloggen om du litar på Allah (swt) och om du vågar

    Vi har redan diskuterat det här 100 tal gånger, och varje gång när du motbevisas eller din dajjal till profet motbevisas kommer du med istikhara..tyvärr är inte bara istikhara som enda medel, när bevisen haglar och han utmålas till lögnare, då hjälper inga istikhara i världen.
    Du vet vad som hände när du var hemma och ljög om Allah..du vet vad som hände din dator och fvad som hände dina fönster och vad som hände dig…gör tawba och återgå till islam. Dajjal har lurat dig och du kommer stå bakom honom medan jag står bakom Imam Mehdi a.s

    Detta var intressant!!!
    Jag har inte läst denna inlägg men i Iran gick det runt en video om att seyed khorasani skulle vara Imam Khamenei och Yamani skulle vara seyed Hassan Nassrollah.
    Det var nära att folk började tro på det men då kom khamenei in i bilden och fördömde det hela totalt och sa att detta är bara ett spel som sionisterna har startat och till slut blev de hade producerat filmen arresterade och förd till domstol.

    Det är löjligt och ange sig själv vara en av imam mahdis anhängare och denna lirare anser sig vara imam mahdi men har inte kunnat kast ut amerikanerna.
    Men jag hoppas han är dijal för det för oss närmare till emam zaman

    japp ena gången har han drömt om Mehdi a.s nästa gång är han hans son, sen är han hans barnbarn och senare är han plötsligt den 13 mehdin och en av 12 nya mehdis lol

    Ok det visar att liraren har svårt och bestämma sig, det var ju synd om han var dajial så skulle han i alla fall ha vett och bestämma sig.

    a-A hadith, which they call, the ”will” of the Prophet (S). According to them this will is written in a book by Shaikh Tusi (AR). Also it is written in Bihar al-Anwar by Allamah Majlisi (AR), Vol 53 – page 147, Vol 51 – page 218 and Vol 36 -page 260.

    Those familiar with this hadith or ”will” say that it is not considered ”sahih” by scholars (including those who quoted it?). The hadith starts with ”A group of people narrated” which means its chain is not complete. Also there are several contradictions in the hadith mattan (text) itself which indicates that its fake.

  12. Zolfigarr skriver:

    Son of a Marja believes in that he is the Yamani a.s
    And the source of the will is reliable

    http://www.mezan.net/books/ahloulbayt/najm2/html/najm2-05.html
    And the Mirza AlNoori(AlTabrasi) in Najem AlThaaqeb 2/71 when he informed with proof about the offspring for Imam Al Mahdi a.s when he said:It is narrated from AlToosi ——-with a reliable source —-from Imam Al Saadeq a.s about a report mentioning some of the wills of the Messenger of Allah pbuhap to Prince of the believers pbu him in the night of his death and in one of its mentioning says:”and when death comes to him let him hand it over to his son the first of the close ones”

    Gaibat Al Toosi from Sheikh Al Toosi”The leader of the Shia sect”p.156-We have said:”And what has lead to its authenticity,the Shia Imamya see it on the way of Tawaater(definite degree of surety)disregarding the others,and the way it has been authentic is present in the books of the Imamya”

  15. Yamani Cloak skriver:

    Peace upon those who follow guidance,
    Sheikh al-Tusi is the ”Father of the Shia”. He started the very first Hawza (University) of Najaf. His book Ghaibatul Tusi is a work is very signficant and important.
    In his book, page 156, Sheikh al-Tusi talks about the Prophet Muhammad’s (pbuhap) Will and what he thinks of it:
    قلنا أما الذي يدل على صحتها فإن الشيعة الامامية يروونها على وجه التواتر خلفا عن سلف و طريقة تصحيح ذلك موجودة في كتب الامامية
    Translation: We have said:”And what has lead to its authenticity, the Shia Imamya see it on the way of Tawaater (definite degree of surety) disregarding the others, and the way it has been authentic is present in the books of the Imamya”.
    Also Prophet Muhammad’s (pbuhap) Will was broadcast in a very large Iraqi Shia sattelite TV all over Iraq and the World, al Forat channel, here is the link for the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U0dLHwTDIWU
    or youtube.com/watch?v=U0dLHwTDIWU

    So will you listen to the great scholar Sheikh al-Tusi and the classical scholars? And many of the big Shia scholars present day? Or will you follow assumptions and guesses, be warned of a day when your hands and skin will speak and testify to everything infront of everyone.
    Walaykum al salam

  16. Bahlool skriver:

    So who are those great scholars today, as you said, big shia scholars present day, who are their names? I asked for a so called marjas name and you guys didnt answer…lying is part of your religion not mine 😉

  17. Bahlool skriver:

    Still waiting..lol shouldnt be hard?

  18. Yamani Cloak skriver:

    Salam alaykum,
    The big scholars are the ones who were killed by opposing the scholars in Najaf: Sayyed Khomeini, Sayed Sadr, Sayed Sader al-Sader. They were killed by the evil scholars, who are now the big scholars. I say they are ”big scholars” because they were with the truth, and not with materialism. The large amount of Khums and Taqleed does not make you a big scholar, but it is the truth.
    Sayyed Sadr wrote a book with the Prophet’s (pbuhap) Will at the night of his death. Sayyed Sadr alSadr wrote about the messenger of Imam Mahdi (as), an encounter of this messenger and also that he is from Basra. These are big scholars, scholars who fight falsehood, they were all attacked by the Hawza of Najaf.
    So ask Allah (swt) to guide you, and stick to the Quran and Ahlulbayt, do not listen to Imams of misguidance, only listen to the 12 Imams (pbut) and their narrations.
    Walaykum al salam

  19. Bahlool skriver:

    Wsalam
    And your proof that they were killed? Without proof, then you are a liar and if you studied islam you should know you cant just accuse people without proof.

  25. Baqiyat Allah skriver:

    Salam Alaikum waRahmatullah waBarakatu,

    Do not let this blessed call slip through your hands my dear brother, and I ask you for the sake of Allah (swt) to open your heart and turn towards Allah (swt) for guidance in this matter. For He (swt) is the best of Guides, and will surely guide all those whom seek guidance on the Straight Path, Insha ‘Allah.

    Please ponder upon these two narrations from Abi Abdullah (pbuh);

    Al Harth ibn Al-Mugheera he said to Abi Abdullah (Imam Ja’far) (pbuh): ‘How do we know about Saaheb Al-Amr (companion of the matter)?’ He said: ‘Peacefulness, dignity, knowledge, and the will.’ [Basa’er Al-Darajat Muhammad ibn Al-Hassan Al-Safar p.509]

    Abi Abdullah (Imam Ja’far) (pbuh) said: ‘The companion of the matter will be known for three qualities it will not be given to anyone except himself. He is the first before anybody (with these qualities), he is his successor and he has the weapon of the Holy Prophet (pbuh & his family), and his will and that is something that I do not separate myself from.’ [Basa’er Al-Darajat Muhammad ibn Al-Hassan Al-Safaar p.202]

    Furthermore, if you have proof to refute the claim of Imam Ahmad Al Hassan (pbuh) then why not come on paltalk and bring your evidence forth, instead of laughing and calling us liars – and perhaps Allah (swt) guides someone through your hands in that case.

    For it is narrated in Bihar al-Anwar that: ‘Prophet David (AS) left for the desert by himself, so Allah revealed to him, ‘O David, why is it that I see you by yourself?’ He said, ‘O Allah, my yearning for meeting You has become extreme, and has become an obstruction between me and Your creation.’ So, Allah revealed to him, ‘Return to them, for if you bring me a runaway servant I will inscribe you in the Tablet as praised.’ [Bihar al-Anwar, v. 14, p. 40, no. 25]

    And the Prophet (SAWA) said to Imam Ali (AS) when he sent him to Yemen, ‘O Ali, do not fight anyone without [first] inviting them [to Islam]. By Allah, that Allah should guide a person through your hands is better for you than everything that the sun rises and sets on, and you will have his allegiance, O Ali.’ [al-Kafi, v. 5, p. 28, no. 4]

    And regarding the Verse from the Holy Qur’an {and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all the people} {5:32}; Imam Hassan Al Askari (pbuh) said: ‘meaning, make alive by guiding him from disbelief to belief, is like keeping alive all the people from before they get killed by the swords of iron’. [Tafseer of Imam Hassan Askari asws, Part VII, P.27]

    And if you do not have proof to refute the blessed call of the Yamani from Ale Muhammad (pbut) then I ask you for the sake of Allah (swt) and for the sake of Muhammad (pbuh & his family) and for the sake of the Prince of the Believers, Imam Ali (pbuh), and for the sake of the Lady of Light Fatimah Al Zahra (pbuh) and the sake of Imam Hassan and Imam Hussein (pbut) that you read more into the blessed call of the Yamani, and that you ask Allah (swt) to make this matter clear for you my dear brother. And if you have any questions – God Willing – we will clarify any misconceptions for you.

    And I ask Allah (swt) that He grants you success in all that which brings you closer to Him, Most Merciful, Most Kind.

    Imam Ahmad Al Hassan, the Yamani (pbuh) said: “I call you to discard the falseness even if it suited your desire. I call you to ratify the truth, and follow the truth even if it was of which the holders of the world have made it unassuming. Approach to the bitterness of the truth, as in the bitter remedy, the cure from chronic illness. Approach on the truth that shall leave you no friend. Approach on the truth and the light while you want nothing but Allah Al-Mighty and the hereafter, away from the garnish of the world and its darkness.”

    اللهم اجعل محياى محيا محمد و آل محمد و مماتى ممات محمد و آل محمد

    Peace be upon you brother, and the Mercy of Allah and His Blessings.

    Salam Alaikum waRahmatullah waBarakatu,

    May Allah (swt) forgive me my shortcomings, brother in the video above posted by brother Zolfigarr you asked regarding the name of the son of the Marja who accepted Imam Ahmad Al Hassan (pbuh).

    His name is Sayyid Hasan Al-Hammami, son of Marji’ Al-Hammami.

    When Imam Ahmad Al Hassan (pbuh) first began to spread his call, Sayyid Hasan left the Marjia. The Imam (pbuh) calls him الطاهر المقدس.

    Peace be upon you, and the Mercy of Allah and His Blessings.

    Narrated to us Muhammad bin Ali bin Hatim Naufali alias Kermani: Narrated to us Abul Abbas Ahmad bin Isa Washsha Baghdadi: Narrated to us Ahmad bin Tahir [Qummi]: Narrated to us Muhammad bin Najr bin Sahl Shaibani: Informed us Ali bin Harith from Saeed bin Mansur Jaushini: Informed us Ahmad bin Ali Budaili: Informed us my father from Sadeer Sairafi that he said: Abi Abdullah (a.s.) said:

    ”As for the disappearance of Isa (a.s.). The Jews and Christians formed unanimity that he has been killed; whereas Allah belied them in this verse:

    وَمَا قَتَلُوهُ وَمَا صَلَبُوهُ وَلَكِن شُبِّه

    And they did not kill him nor did they crucify him, but it appeared to them so.1

    Likewise is the disappearance of the Qaim since one group denies it for its length – ranging from one misguided person who says, ‘He was never born’; to another who says, ‘He was born and he died’; to another who rejects faith by saying that our Eleventh was issueless; to another who deviates by saying, ‘This will increase to thirteen and upwards’, and another who sins against Allah, the Mighty and Sublime by saying, ‘The spirit of the Qaim speaks through the body of someone else’.”

    Notera:

    ——-> another who deviates by saying, ‘This will increase to thirteen and upwards’ <——– Kamal Al-Deen Volume 2, Chapter 33, page 31,32,33,34 & 35 Hadith Number 51 by Shaykh A-Saduq —- 1 Surah Nisa 4:157 [This is quote from a long hadith]

  28. Baqiyat Allah skriver:

    1- Abi Hamza narrated from Abi Abdullah [pbuh] in a long hadith that he said: “O Aba Hamza, from among us 11 Mahdies after the Qa’im from the progeny of Al-Hussain [AS]” -Ghaiba, Al-Tosi page 478-479.

    2- Abi Baseer said: I told Al-Sadiq Ja’far bin Muhammad [pbuh]: O son of the Messenger of Allah, I heard from your father [pbuh] that he said: there will be 12 Mahdies after the Qa’im, he said: “he said 12 Mahdies and not 12 Imams, but they are folk of our Shia who call people to pledge allegiance to us and to know our right” –Kamal Al-Deen wa Tamam Al-Ni’emah, Sheikh Al-Sadooq page 358.

    3- Abi Abdullah [pbuh] said: “from among us 12 Mahdies after the Qa’im [pbuh] from the progeny of Hussain [pbuh]” –Muntakhab Al-Anwar Al-Mude’ah, Sayyed Baha’a Al-Deen Al-Najafi p.353-354

    4- Al-Hadrami narrated from Abi Ja’afar [pbuh] saying: I asked him which spot on earth is the most favoured after the Haram of Allah [swt] and the Haram of his Messenger [pbuhf]? He said: “Al-Kofah O Aba Baker, it is the virtuous and purified, in it are the graves of the dispatched prophets, the non-dispatched [prophets] and the honest successors. And in it is the Mosque of Suhail where God has not sent a Prophet unless he prayed inside it, and from it the justice of God appears and in it will be His Riser and the Risers after him, and it is the dwellings of the prophets, successors and the righteous ones” – Kamel Al-Ziyarat by Ja’afar bin Muhammad bin Qoloweh, page 76.

    Imam Abu Ja’afar [pbuh] mentions the Mahdies saying: “and the Risers after him”, which means after the Qa’im (pbuh). So he names the Mahdies by (Risers).

    5- Habbah Al-Arni said: the Prince of the believers [pbuh] went out to Heera and said: “this will be joined to this” and he pointed with his hand to Kofa and Heera “until a cubit in between them will be sold in Dinars, and then in Heera a mosque shall be built which has 500 doors,the caliphate of the Qa’im [May God hasten his relief] shall pray in it, because the mosque of Kofa will be small for them and 12 Imams of justice will pray in it” – Bihar AlAnwar v.52 p.474, Tahtheeb AlAhkaam by Sheikh Al-Tosi v.3 p.245

    The Prince of believers states in this narration that a mosque will be built in Heera where the caliphate of the Qa’im will pray in it, and then he [pbuh] said: “and 12 Imams of justice will pray in it” and those Imams [pbut] will pray in it after the Qa’im [pbuh] builds it, which means they are not the same 12 Imams, but rather they are those whom other narrations names them by (Mahdies).

    6- A dua from Ahlul Bait [pbut]: “O Allah and pray upon the holders of his covenant, attain them their hopes, make their lives longer and grant them victory. Fulfil what you have entrusted them from the matter of your religion, and make us their helpers and supporters of your religion, and pray upon his pure fathers, the rightly guided Imams…” – Mikyal Al-Makarim v.2 p.73

    The dua here is for the Qa’im [pbuh] and the holders of his covenant are his successors as it is clear. This dua mentions the phrase: “Fulfil what you have entrusted them from the matter of your religion” because they [pbut] are entrusted with the matter of religion. And the proof that the intended here are the Mahdies is that he prays upon the Mahdies and then he prays upon his pure fathers, meaning the fathers of the Qa’im [pbuh].

    7- Imam Sajad said: ((the Qa’im from us will rise and then after him will be twelve Mahdis)) Sharh Alkhbar 3/400 (Explanation News 3 / 400.)

    8- In the dua reported from a woman who was in the house of Imam Al-Mahdy [pbuh] and Sheikh Al-Tosi related it to us: “O Allah pray upon Muhammad Al-Mustafa, and Ali Al-Murtatha, and Fatima Al-Zahraa, and Al-Hassan Al-Reza, and Al-Hussain Al-Musaffa and all the successors, the lights of the gloominess and the banners of guidance and the signs of piety and the firm handhold and the strong rope and the straight path. And pray upon your successor and the holders of his covenant and the Imams from his sons, and make their lives longer…” – Ghaibat Al-Tosi p.28, Bihar Al-Anwar v.52 p.22.

    The woman reports the dua from Imam Al-Mahdy when he prays upon his fathers and followed it by praying upon the Mahdies and he says when mentioning the Mahdies (and make their lives longer) and it is known that the Imams of his forefathers are dead, so he is praying for the Mahdies [pbut].

    9- It is narrated from Imam Al-Askary on the Dua of 3rd of Sha’ban: “and the successors from his progeny after their Qa’im and his occultation” –Bihar v.53 p.94.

    10- Sayyid ibn Tawoos said: and we have chosen what ibn Abi Qurra has mentioned in his book on the authority of Muhammad ibn Essa bin Ubaid, on the authority of the virtuous one [pbut]: and repeat on the night of 23rd of the Month of Ramadan while you are standing and sitting and at all times and during the whole month….say after praising Allah Taala and praying upon His prophet and his progeny peace be upon them:

    ”O Allah cherish Your supporter, the one who rises with Your matter Muhammad ibn Hassan (may peace and blessings be upon him and his forefathers), in this hour and in every hour as a patron, a protector, a leader, a victor, an evidence, and assister; until you accommodate him on earth being obeyed, and allow him to enjoy it lengthwise and breadthways, and make him and his offspring the Inheriting Imams.”

    “If you are done with the written prayer, say: I have approved Allah as a Lord, and Islam as a religion, and the Quran as a Book, and Muhammad as a prophet and Ali as a master and Al-Hassan and Hussain and Ali ibn Al-Hussain …. and Al-Hujja ibn Al-Hassan ibn Ali as Imams.

    What is it exactly that makes you doubt the call of Ahmad Al Hassan (pbuh), perhaps there are a few things that do not add up to you that – God Willing – could be easily clarified.

    May Allah (swt) grant us all success in finding the truth brother Bahlool, and May He (swt) allow our hearts to recognize, accept and bear it, Insha ‘Allah.

    Imam Ali (pbuh) said: ”Our matters are very tough and difficult. Only three types of people can understand and accept them. Either an angel, who is extremely close to Allah or Prophets of high rank or those human beings whom Allah has tested.” [Kitab Sulaym bin Qays al Hilali].

    Narrated from Al-Baqir, Upon him Peace: ”When the Qaim (PBUH) rises, he will go to Kufa and ten thousand persons called the Batriyya, who will be bearing arms, will come out against him (PBUH). They will say: ‘Go back where you came from. We have no need in you O son of Fatimah.’ He will put them to the sword until he comes to the last of them. Then he will enter Kufa. There he will kill every doubting hypocrite and he will destroy their palaces. He will kill those who fight for them until the Almighty Allah is satisfied.” [Arshad Al-Mufeed, Ch.2, P. 384, Bihar al-Anwar, V. 52, P. 338, Majam Ahadith Al-Imam Al-Mahdi, Upon himPeace, Ch. 3, P. 308.]

    Peace be upon you and the Mercy of Allah and His Blessings,

    Salam 3laykum waRa7matullah waBarakatu my dear brother Bahlool,

    From Imam Ja’far Al-Sadiq (pbuh) that “Amirul Momineen (pbuh) informed of some things that would happen after him until the appearance of the Qa’im, then Imam Husain (pbuh) asked him: “O Amirul Momineen, when does Allah purify the world from the unjust people?” Amirul Momineen (pbuh) said: “Allah does not purify the world from the unjust until the sacred blood is shed.” Then he mentioned the story of the Umayyads and the Abbasids in a long tradition then he said: “When the Qa’im rises in Khurasan, and defeats the lands of Kufa and Multan, and passes the island of Bani Kawan, and a riser from us rises in Jeelan, who will be supported by the people of Aabir and Deylaman, and the banners of the Turks will rise in different countries to support my son (the Qa’im), and are between here and there (between Fitnas). If Basra gets destroyed and the Prince of the Princes rises.” He told a long story and then said: “When armies get ready in thousands of soldiers, and the lines of the armies get set up, and the ram sheep gets killed. Then different leaders rise, revolters shall rebel and unbelievers shall perish then the expected Qa’im and the unknown Imam will appear with honor and virtue. O Husain, he is your descendant, and no son is like him at all. He will appear between the two corners (of the Kaaba) in ragged cloths. He shall appear upon the two weighty things, and will clear the world of every evil. Give glad tidings to he who lives until his (the Qaim’s) time and witnesses his days.”

    The above text is a complete narration and is also present in Bihar al-Anwar: V. 52, P. 235, and present inGhaibah Al-Nai’many: P. 385.

    Who is this unknown Imam (pbuh) other than the Messenger of Imam Al-Mahdi (pbuh), the promised Yamani from the family of Muhammad (pbut)?

    Please ponder over the above narration may Allah (swt) make it as a means of guidance for you and for all who read it, Insha ‘Allah.

    Narrated from Abi Abdullah (Imam Ja’far As-Sadiq) (pbuh): “Pray two Rakats and seek what is best from Allah (Istakhar), for by Allah, there has not been a Muslim who asks Allah what is best (by Istikhara), except that He chooses what is best for him.” [Wasa’il Al Shia / Door of Prayer and Istikhara].

    And from him (pbuh): “Whomever seeks Allah’s guidance (does Istikhara) while being content/satisfied with whatever He chooses, then Allah certainly chooses what is best for him.” [Same source].

    And from him (pbuh): “We used to learn how to seek Allah’s guidance (Istikhara), as we used to learn the chapter from the Qur’an.” Then he said: “If I do Istikhara I do not care on which side I fall.” [Same source].

    And many more than that, and there have been traditions narrated forbidding the disagreeing with the Istikhara and disobeying it, or turning towards a matter, and entering into it without seeking what is Allah’s guidance/what is best from Allah (Istikhara) regarding it. For from Abi Abdullah (pbuh): “Whoever enters a matter without seeking what is best from Allah (Istikhara) then he is afflicted, he shall not be rewarded.” [Same Source].

    And from him (pbuh): “Allah, the Glorified and Exalted, said: ‘From the Misfortune of my servant is that he does the works and does not seek My guidance (does not seek what is best from Me/does not make Istikhara).” [Same Source].

    And from him (pbuh), some of his companions asked him: “Who are the most honorable/noble creations with Allah?” He (pbuh) said: “[Those whom] are engaged most frequently in the remembrance of Allah, and are most obedient to Him.” It was said: “Who are the most hateful creations with Allah?” He (pbuh) said: “Those whom accuse Allah.” It was asked: “And does anyone accuse Allah?!?!” He (pbuh) said: “Yes, those whom seek what is best from Allah (does Istikhara) and the response comes back with what he hates so he becomes angry/discontent because of that, verily, that is the one who accuses Allah.” [Same Source].

    And numerous ways of doing Istikhara and asking Allah and knowing His, The Glorious, answer have been narrated from the Holy Prophet (pbuh & his family) and the Ahlul Bayt (pbut).

    Verily, Safwan Al Jamal, and he is from the companions of the two Imams Al Kathim and Al Ridha (pbut) became certain, through Istikhara, about the Imamate of Imam Al-Ridha during the Fitna of The Waqifite (The Stoppers)

    And from Ali ibn Mo’ath, he said: “I said to Safwan bin Yahya: ‘By what thing have you determined that Ali – meaning [Ali] Al Rida (pbuh) – [is the Imam]?’ He said: ‘I prayed, and supplicated to Allah, and I sought what is best from Allah (made Istikhara) and became certain that he was him (the Imam)’” (Ghayba Al-Toosi: p. 54). Consequently, Safwan Al Jamal determined the Imamate of [Ali] Al Rida (pbuh) through seeking what is best from Allah (Istikhara).

    And upon you is this very important hadith (tradition) which links/connects Istikhara with Imam Al Mahdi (pbuh).

    Kitab Al Ghayba – Muhammad bin Ibrahim Al Ni’mani – p. 221 & 222.

    From Abi Muhammad Musa bin Haroun bin Isa Al Ma’bady, he said: “Abdullah bin Muslima bin Qa’nab narrated to us saying: Suliman bin Bilal narrated to us saying: Ja’far bin Muhammad (Upon them Peace) narrated to us from his father, [who narrated] from him grandfather, [who narrated] from Al Hussein bin Ali (Upon them Peace), saying: “A man came to the Prince of the Believers (Upon him Peace) and said to him: ‘O Prince of the Believers! Tell us regarding this Mahdi of yours!’ So he (pbuh) said: ‘If the cyclists cycle , and the believers became fewer, and the foreign/imported [ones] go away, then that is that.’ So he said: ‘O Prince of the Believers! From who is this man?’ So he (pbuh) said: ‘From Bani Hashem….. until he said: Then he returned to the description of The Mahdi (pbuh) and said: His cave is the most vast, and he is the most knowledgeable of you, and the most merciful of you. O Allah, make his sending an exit from adversity , and unite by him the nation, so if Allah chooses for you [that you recognize him] then determine [to go to him], and do not turn away from him if you were granted success in [knowing] him, and do not go past him if you were guided to him, ah, and he pointed with his hand to his chest longing for seeing him.”

    Seek guidance in this matter from Allah (swt) my dear brother Bahlool ‘for by Allah, there has not been a Muslim who asks Allah what is best (by Istikhara), except that He chooses what is best for him.’

    Peace be upon you and the Mercy of Allah and His Blessings,

    Salam 3laykum waRa7matullah waBarakatu my dear brother Bahlool,

    With all due respect 97% of the above text that was ”too much” was all wisdom from the wisdom of the AhlulBayt (pbut). Which indeed every letter is a blessing from Allah (swt) upon us.

    Furthermore, I beg of you brother do your research, for verily the Yamani (pbuh) comes before Imam Al-Mahdi (pbuh) and this is known from the narrations of the AhlulBayt (pbut) and is accepted even by the Shi’a scholars today, here are a few examples:

    Sistani says:

    http://i48.tinypic.com/24pc7cj.png

    The Translation:

    Question: Will the Ansar of Imam Mahdi [pbuh] come out before his emergence?

    Answer: In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Intensely Merciful

    Dear brother Muntazar Mawlah, Salam 3laykum waRa7matullah waBarakatu

    There are narrations which indicate that some of his supporters will invite people to pledge allegiance to him, and [those narrations] called for the necessity of joining such calls and [prevented] from dissenting from them. For example, one of the descriptions of the Yamani is that he (calls to your companion) and the assertion of joining his call has been reported.

    As well as the Pure Soul, sent from Imam Mahdi (may God hasten his reappearance) to Mecca just 15 days before the holy appearance, and he calls people to support the imam at the Masjid Al-Haram…

    And Ali Korani says:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QcxS223ri8

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JrXKiAcDHP0

    And these are but a few examples in the sea of many my dear brother, ”And there is no banner that is more guiding than the banner of the Yamani, it is the banner of guidance, for he calls to your Companion.”

    Furthermore, regarding your comment on Istikhara this is untrue, we have – by the permission of Allah (swt) – put forth many proofs disclaiming your article and you have either chosen to ignore them or say ”Ahmad al hassan is by no means one of them even if true.” We have even offered – God Willing – to clarify any misconceptions you may have regarding the movement of Ahmad Al-Hassan (pbuh), but you have yet to bring anything forth my dear brother.

    Moreover, if you read the above narrations I (and I seek refuge in Allah from myself) provided regarding Istikhara you would know the importance of it, and know that the Imams (pbut) spoke of its significance and importance. Even one of the companions of Imam Rida (pbuh), Safwan Al Jamal, determined the Imamate of Imam Rida (pbuh) through Istikhara.

    For the sake of Allah (swt) brother Bahlool please open your heart and seek guidance in this matter from Allah (swt), for He (swt) is the very best of guides, and guides all those who turn to Him sincerely.

    May Allah (swt) enlighten your way and our way, Insha ‘Allah.

    Peace be upon you and the Mercy of Allah and His Blessings,

    1 why are so many females part of this sect?

    Why is this an issue?! And if it is an issue due to the hadith which states that the majority of the Dajjals followers shall be women I can assure you there are just as many men, if not many more men, who believe in the blessed Yamani, Ahmad Al-Hassan (pbuh).

    2. howcome your dajjal has been spreading his venom since 1990-s and still nothing has happend?

    Noah (pbuh) preached and warned his people for hundreds of years.

    {Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves} {13:11}

    Sheikh Al-Toosi narrates in ‘Al Ghayba’ on pages 167-172, from Imam Al Sadiq (pbuh) that he said: ”Allah, the Exalted, has consigned three qualities in the Qa’im of ours, which He had consigned to three of the apostles.” Until he (pbuh) said, ”and his protraction like the protraction of Noah (pbuh). As for the protraction of Noah: When he prayed for the descent of punishment against his people from the Heavens, Allah, the Exalted, sent Gabriel, the Trusted Spirit, with seven kernels, and said, ‘O’ Apostle of Allah! Allah, the Exalted, says to you, ”They are My creation and My servants. I will not perish them with a lightening from my thunderbolts until the call has been stressed upon and the proof has become binding. Retain your hard labor in making the call to your people, for I will reward you for that. Plant these kernels, because your relief and liberation will be at its plantation, outgrowth, and fruition when it reaches fruition. Give this glad tidings to your believing followers.”‘ The Allah, the Exalted, continued to order him every time to plant the seeds until they had been planted seven times. Nations of believers continued to lose congregations until they were left only seventy and some odd men. At that time, did Allah, the Exalted, sent a message to him and said, ‘O’ Noah! Now the dawn on your eyes has broken the night as the truth has manifested with clarity and the order of belief has become pure from impurity by the apostasy of everyone who had a wicked clay. If I had destroyed the disbelievers and kept those who have apostatized from amongst the believers in you, I had not fulfilled my early promise to the believers from your people who were sincere in their belief in Me and had adhered to the rope of your Prophethood that I would make them heirs in the earth and empower for them their religion and replace their fear with security, so that worship be pure for Me by the departure of doubts from their hearts. How could I provide heirship and empowerment and replacement of fear with security while I know the weakness of certainty of the people who apostatized and their wicked clays and their evil insides, which were the outcomes of hypocrisy and the initiation of misguidance. If they had procured from Me the Kingdom that will be given to the believers at the time of heirship when I will have killed their enemies, they would have sniffed the smells of its attractions, and it would have strengthened the inner secrets of their hypocrisy, and eternalized the strings of misguidance in their hearts, and they would have faced their brothers with enmity and would have battled them in pursuit of chiefdom and the distinction of commanding and forbidding. And how can the religion’s empowerment and the Command’s spread amongst the believers coexist with rise of mischief and occurrence of wars? Never! Build the ark under Our eyes and as We reveal.'”

    Al Sadiq (pbuh) said, ”Likewise is the Qa’im (pbuh). The days of his occultation will be lengthy so truth may become clear and belief may become pure from impurity by the apostasy of everyone from the Shi’a with a wicked clay/disposition who are feared they are hypocrites when they expect heirship and empowerment and a vast security in the reign of the Qa’im (pbuh).”

    – tell me, since when does one imam appear before his master? Since when does mehdi numberr 13 appear before mehdi number 12?

    Regarding this Imam Ahmad Al-Hassan (pbuh) says:

    “They ask you: ‘How is it that the Trustee/Vicegerant appears before the Proof (Hujjah)?’ For this Haroun (Aaron) was dispatched in Egypt before Musa (Moses), and is indicated by the Quranic Text: {And [mention] when your Lord called Moses, [saying], “Go to the wrongdoing people -} {The people of Pharaoh. Will they not fear Allah ?”} {He said, “My Lord, indeed I fear that they will deny me} {And that my breast will tighten and my tongue will not be fluent, so send for Aaron.} {The Holy Quran Surat Ash-Shu`arā’ (The Poets): 10 -13}.

    This verse indicates that Musa requested from Allah [that He] send for Haroun, meaning, just as He had enlightened him, enlighten Haroun, which initiated the call through Haroun and prepared the people for the acceptance of Moses. {Allah said: “By no means! proceed then, both of you, with Our Signs; We are with you, and will listen (to your call).} {The Holy Quran Surat Ash-Shu`arā’ (The Poets): 15}. This verse indicates that Allah responded to the request of Moses, Upon him Peace, and not only this, but rather, the one whom remained in direct confrontation was Haroun. {So the magicians fell down in prostration. They said, “We have believed in the Lord of Aaron and Moses.”} {The Holy Quran Surat Ţāhā (Ta-Ha): 70}. Haroun presented [the proof], for verily, he was the one who faced them [the one who confronted Pharoah and his people], and Haroun was the Trustee of Moses whom was sent in the Land of the Message, which was [to] Egypt before Musa, but rather, he [Haroun] continued speaking and confronting with the presence of Musa, for verily, Musa had requested this [specifically]. But he [Haroun] was abided by the proof upon him [who is Musa], therefore, he would not speak except by the Command of Musa.{And that my breast will tighten and my tongue will not be fluent, so send for Aaron.} {The Holy Quran Surat Ash-Shu`arā’ (The Poets): 10 -13}.

    What did Musa request? And who was the speaker? He requested that the speaker be Haroun, and Allah responded to him so much so that the magicians identified their belief through Haroun before [doing so through] Musa. Have you noticed this: {So the magicians fell down in prostration. They said, “We have believed in the Lord of Aaron and Moses.”} {The Holy Quran Surat Ţāhā (Ta-Ha): 70}?

    Now, is this finished, meaning, that is it possible for the Trustee/Vicegerent to be sent before the Proof/Argument (Hujja), who he is abided by through this matter [like in the case of] (Haroun and Musa)? And previously I gave you three [more] examples: Lut (Lot) and Abraham, Muhammad and Ali, and Soliman (Soloman) and Dawod (David), Upon them all Peace, and this fourth [example] is sufficient, rather, the latter one in which I gave you was sufficient.”

    (Excerpt from: Ma3 Al 3bd Al Saleh (With the Righteous Servant)).

    Peace be upon you and the Mercy of Allah and His Blessings,

    1. Actually i got plenty of you people on my friendlist on facebook, and most are females. This is proof for 2 things. Followers of Dajjal, as you mentioned and 2, that they are part of a sect, as sects tend to atract females.

    http://youtu.be/6RqAErsH0yo

    This is good response to your spreading fitna.

    As for Mose and Aaron, tell me, was Moses in hiding? Any example you take up, to proove your point, show that you are not knowledgble in your own religion. Because this is my point, i need the Mehdi a.s to go out and point to al Yamani and say, this is my representative. Tell me, have you not read about the hadiths that before the Mehdi a.s comes out, there will be 70 dajjals? Ahmed al Hassan is one of them.

    As for what you posted, there is no isnad, no source that i can check out with my friends. so its no proof for me just a lot of talk.

    What did Musa request? And who was the speaker? He requested that the speaker be Haroun, and Allah responded to him so much so that the magicians identified their belief through Haroun before [doing so through] Musa. Have you noticed this: {So the magicians fell down in prostration. They said, “We have believed in the Lord of Aaron and Moses.”} {The Holy Quran Surat Ţāhā (Ta-Ha): 70}?

    This is my point, MUSA requested. NOt Ahmed al Hassan requested. So tell me if the Prophet Musa a.s, went out and said Aaron is my deputy. But in your cause, the deputy, the man Ahmed al Hassan goes out and says, the Mehdi a.s, has appointed me. Do you see the difference?

    Salam 3laykum waRa7matullah waBarakatu brother Bahlool,

    1. With all due respect your friend list on facebook is rather irrelevant, as I could easily say Sistani has more women followers than Imam Ahmad Al-Hassan (pbuh).

    2. Perhaps you failed to understand the logic and wisdom of the Moses (pbuh) and Aaron (pbuh) parable that was set forth. Aaron (pbuh) called the people to Moses (pbuh), even though Moses (pbuh) was the proof of Allah (swt) during that time. Just as the Yamani is calling us to the proof of Allah in this day and age (Imam Mahdi (pbuh)) and this is not just talk, rather the AhlulBayt (pbut) give us glad tidings of the banner of the Yamani (pbuh), and say ”And there is no banner that is more guiding than the banner of the Yamani, it is the banner of guidance, for he calls to your Companion.” And the Yamani calling people to the Qa’im before his rise is not only something that is present within the narrations of the AhlulBayt but rather this is something that the scholars of today are aware of, and warn the people from turning away from him (pbuh), in the above video I (and I seek refuge in Allah from myself) provided Ali Korani acknowledges that the Promised Yamani from the family of Muhammad (pbut) is the KEY to the appearance of Imam Al-Mahdi (pbuh) and his Vizier.

    Of course brother I see the difference, but we are reading back on history. Do you think during the time Moses (pbuh) requested this from Allah (swt) that the Children of Israel were around to witness this?! No in fact many of the Jews bore a great deal of enmity and animosity towards Aaron (pbuh) and this is apparent from the narrations of the Ahlulbayt (pbut).

    Al7amdullillah brother I am aware of the hadiths that speak regarding the 70 Dajjals, are you aware of these narrations:

    The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh & his family) said, ”The Dajjal emerges from the East, from a city called Khurasan followed by people whose faces were as if they were burnished shields.” [Al Malaham wa Al Fitan – Sayyed ibn Tawus Al Hasany p. 153].

    And in a tradition: ”Then Alasbagh ibn Nabata rose after that to Ali and said, ‘O Prince of the Believers! Who is the Dajjal?’ So Ali (pbuh) said, ‘He emerges from a country called Isfahan from a city known for Judaism, his right eye is erased.'” [Al Kharaij wa Al Garaih: part 3, page 1,135].

    And the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh & his family) said, ”When I was raised by my Lord, there came to me the cry ‘O Muhammad!’ I said, ‘At your will…'” All the way until he said, ”And the emergence of a man from the sons of Hussein ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib and the emergence of the Dajjal from the East of Sijstan (Sistan) and the appearance of the Sufyani…”

    Thus, according to the AhlulBayt (pbut) the Dajjal is from Sistan and from Isfahan and from Khurasan, and Sistani is from Sistan and from Isfahan and from Khurasan, and his right eye is erased and he entered into Iraq from the direction of Kuwait from the mountain of Sanam that is in Safwan. Ask yourself brother are these all coincidences?!

    Furthermore brother you say you need Imam Al-Mahdi (pbuh) to come out and point to the Yamani and say ‘This is my representative.’ {Do they [then] wait for anything except that the angels should come to them or your Lord should come or that there come some of the signs of your Lord? The Day that some of the signs of your Lord will come no soul will benefit from its faith as long as it had not believed before or had earned through its faith some good. Say, ”Wait. Indeed, we [also] are waiting.”} {Al-`An`am: 158}

    And in Kamal Al Deen wa Tamam Al Ni’ma it is narrated from the AhlulBayt that the signs in this Blessed Verse are the Imams Mushtarta and the ayat is Qa’im (pbuh), and the hadith reads: ”After that day the faith of no one shall profit him IF before his Eminence rises up with the sword he had no faith – even though he may have had faith in the Imam’s forefathers.” And ask yourself brother Bahlool who other than the Shi’a have faith in Imam Al-Mahdi’s forefathers?!

    This is what we have from the AhlulBayt (pbut) brother Bahlool, we have the will of the Prophet Muhammad, which has a strong and reliable chain of narrators and is even accepted by the Shia Scholars today, and which mentions Ahmad (pbuh) by name. We also have the narrations of the 12 Mahdies which also have reliable narrators and is accepted by Shi’a Scholars today. Also we have the narrations regarding the Blessed Yamani (pbuh), and these narrations do not say Imam Al-Mahdi (pbuh) shall rise first and clarify to us that this is his representative, which perhaps, and Allah and His Messenger know best, would not make the least bit of difference because according to the narrations of the Ahlulbayt (pbut) many from among those who claim to be Shi’a of the AhlulBayt (pbut) will fail to even recognize Imam Mahdi (pbuh) as the Proof of Allah (swt) and shall be amongst those who oppose him and fight him and shall even face him saying, ‘Go back where you came from. We have no need in you O son of Fatimah.’. But rather the AhlulBayt (pbut) – by the Mercy of Allah (swt) upon us – have given us ways to recognize the blessed Yamani (pbuh), which is ”peacefulness, dignity, his knowledge and the will of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh & his family).” And these are all things Imam Ahmad Al Hassan (pbuh) has come with.

    May Allah (swt) enlighten your way and our way, Insha ‘Allah, and May He (swt) lead each of us to the path that is most pleasing to Him, Most Merciful, Most Kind.

    Peace be upon you and the Mercy of Allah and His Blessings,
