Answering-Ansar’s lies about the author of Kashaful ghummah

Answering-Ansar said :

First and foremost we should inform our readers that Arbali is not considered a major Shi’a scholar. Kashf al-Ghumma is the only book that he authored – on the Ahl’ul bayt (as), in which he gathered the Sunni traditions that prove the righteousness of Ahl’ul bayt (as) and their virtues.

At another place, AA team attributes the book ‘Kashaful Ghummah’ to the Ahle Sunnah.

The Qur’an has clearly used this term as meaning intercourse so if we are to accept this hadith as Sahih then it means that Ayesha claimed Rasulullah (s) had sex with her whilst she was menstruating. By deeming such hadith as Sahih these Nasibi have alleged that Rasulullah (s) violated a Qur’anic injunction (astaghfirullah).

The image had such a lasting effect on the Sahaba Jabir, that Ahl’ul Sunnah’s authority work Kashaf al Ghimma page 65, narrates Jabir’s words, from the mouth of Ayesha:

“During my menses, Rasulullah (s) would ‘Bashr’ [have intercourse] with me. He would order me to tie a knot in a large cloth, after I did this he would embrace my chest”

Is there any greater immorality than having sex with one’s wife during her menses? Allah (swt) has condemned such an act and the Ahl as-Sunnah have proudly claimed that Rasulullah (s) had done just that.


Now lets read what Majlisi says in his book, Behar al anwar

وكتاب كشف الغمة من أشهر الكتب ، ومؤلفه من العلماء الامامية

The book Kashaful ghummah is one of the famous books, and his author is from the scholars of Imamiya

Shaykh Abbas Qummi says

بهاء الدين أبو الحسن علي بن عيسى بن ابى الفتح الاربلي من كبار العلماء الامامية، العالم الفاضل الشارعر الاديب المنشئ النحرير والمحدث الخبير الثقة الجليل أبو الفضائل والمحاسن الجمة صاحب كتاب كشف الغمة في معرفة الائمة ” عليه السلام ” فرغ من تصنيفه سنة 687، وله رسالة الطيف وديوان شعر وعدة رسائل، وله شعر كثير في مدح الائمة ” عليه السلام ” ذكر جملة منه في كشف الغمة، وكتابه كشف الغمة كتاب نفيس جامع حسن

Bahaud din Abul Hasan Ali bin Eesa bin Abil Fath Al Arbali is amongst the grand scholars of Imamiya, a great muhaddith, thiqqah, author of Kashaful ghumma, which he completed in 687 , and in his other books are Risalatul Latif, Diwan she’r , wadatur rasail, and he has lots of poetic lines in the praise of Aimmah (as) which he mentioned in kashaful ghummah, and his book Kashaful ghummah is a precious book.

Hur al Aamili says:
كان عالماً فاضلاً محدثاً ثقة شاعراً أديباً منشئاً جامعاً للفضائل والمحاسن له كتب منها : كتاب كشف الغمة في معرفة الأئمة جامع حسن فرغ من تأليفه سنة 687 وله رسالة الطيف ، وديوان شعر ، وعدة رسائل.

Grand scholar, Muhaddith, thiqqah, Poet, amongst his books are kashaful ghummah, which he completed in 687 , and risalatul latif, diwan she’r , and wadatur rasail.

The other shia website ( says about his books:

كشف الغُمّة في معرفة الأئمّة(عليهم السلام)، المقالات الأربع، رسالة الطيف، ديوان شعر.

Kashaful ghummah, maqalat al arba’ , risalatul latif, diwan she’r

You can see the website of Lies lying again and again, its lies are non stop.

Now what about the Sunni narrations in this book?

Arbali says in his muqaddima

واعتمدت في الغالب النقل من كتب الجمهور ، ليكون أدعى إلى تلقّيه بالقبول

I have depended on the books of jamhoor (i.e both Sunnis and Shias), so that it gets acceptance (from the two sides).

Muqaddima, Kashaful ghummah

So he didn’t narrated the Sunni tradition just for fun, rather he wanted the book to become acceptable. Surely now what he narrated from the Sunni traditions, he obviously considered them present in both Shia and Sunni books, that is why he mentioned them in his book so that it would become acceptable for both the Shias and the Sunnis.

Anyhow, the above mentioned incident is mentioned in many other Shia books, e.g Bihar al anwar of Mulla Baqir Majlisi

قال علي : فأقبل رسول الله صلى الله عليه واله فقال : يا أبا الحسن انطلق الان فبع درعك وائتني بثمنه حتى اهيئ لك ولا بنتي فاطمة ما يصلحكما . قال علي : فانطلقت فبعته بأربعمائة درهم سود هجرية ، من عثمان بن عفان فلما قبضت الدراهم منه وقبض الدرع مني قال : يا أبا الحسن لست أولى بالدرع منك وأنت أولى بالدراهم مني ، فقلت : بلى ، قال : فان الدرع هدية مني إليك فأخذت الدرعوالدراهم ، وأقبلت إلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه واله فطرحت الدرع والدراهم بين يديه وأخبرته بماكان من أمر عثمان ، فدعاله بخير is the twin sister of Answering-Ansar in Deception says

In the above tradition the Prophet predicted the sedition which Aisha will bring for Muslims and that she will be seduced by Satan for instigating the first civil war in the history of Islam.

Muslim has also related in his Sahih from Ikrima Ibn Ammar from Salim from Ibn Umar who said:

“The Prophet of Allah (PBUH&HF) emerged from the house of Aisha and said. ‘The pivot of disbelief is from here, where the horns of Satan will rise.'”Sunni reference: Sahih Muslim, Arabic version, the Chapter of Seditions, v4, p2229

While there are so many ahadith which clearly proves that it is not the house of Aisha (r) but the east direction, and our brothers have already wrote articles on it, Check out this article, but here we will show another tampering with hadith by the Shia website.

حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو بَکْرِ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ حَدَّثَنَا وَکِيعٌ عَنْ عِکْرِمَةَ بْنِ عَمَّارٍ عَنْ سَالِمٍ عَنْ ابْنِ عُمَرَ قَالَ خَرَجَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّی اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ مِنْ بَيْتِ عَائِشَةَ فَقَالَ رَأْسُ الْکُفْرِ مِنْ هَاهُنَا مِنْ حَيْثُ يَطْلُعُ قَرْنُ الشَّيْطَانِ يَعْنِي الْمَشْرِقَ

Ibn Umar reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) came out from the house of ‘A’isha and said: It would be from this side that there would appear the horns of disbelief i.e east.

Anyhow, in that house , Prophet Muhammad (s) is also buried, how did Ali (r) find it correct to let the Prophet (s) be buried at the place from where the horns of satan will appear? Of all the world, the Prophet (s) was buried at the place from where the horns of satan will appear? You mean the Prophet (s) is buried at such an evil place? O Shiites, when will you start using brain? Well in this case, Shiites and Christians have a unique similarity. Both rejects all the ahadith which clearly mentions it is actually talking about the east direction. Both thinks that it is the house of Aisha (r) from where the horns of satan will appear. But one says it is Aisha (r) and the other says it is Muhammad (s). Anyhow, the purpose of this article was to expose the deception of and show its true colors. The readers can read the article linked above to see a detailed explanation.

Answering-Ansar’s deception in trying to prove Imamate from Quran

Answering-Ansar says:

The Qur’an confirms that the divine rank of Imamate is superior to the divine rank of Prophethood

Hadhrat Ibraheem (as) was initially given the designation of Prophet of Allah (swt) and whilst in this position was tried by Allah (swt) with certain commands, leading to Allah (swt) stating:

[YUSUFALI 2:124] And remember that Abraham was tried by his Lord with certain commands, which he fulfilled: He said: “I will make thee an Imam to the Nations.” He pleaded: “And also (Imams) from my offspring!” He answered: “But My Promise is not within the reach of evil-doers.”

This divine verse tells us that the rank of Imamate is superior to that of Prophethood, because Hadhrat Ibrahim (as) was a Prophet (s) but was further tested by Allah during his prophethood, and when he successfully passed the tests (which were the test on his life, leaving his wife, sacrificing his son), he was granted the position of Imamat. The Imamate of Ibrahim (as) was connected directly to the manner in which he had confronted the tests and trials of prophethood. After he had displayed his strength by passing through all those stages, God revealed to him that he was to be further honored with the lofty office of Imamate, with responsibility for the inner guidance of mankind, the refinement of their souls, the maturing of their spiritual capacities, and, in general, the preservation of the truth.

The Answering-Ansar has tried to use this verse to show that Imams are superior to Prophets. The Shiites have this belief that their twelve Imams are superior to everyone except Prophet Muhammad (s). But actually everyone who has little sense, can understand the problem with how they deal with this verse. First of all, it refutes their belief that their 12 imams are superior to all prophets except Prophet Muhammad (s). Because this verse is telling us that Abraham was also an Imam. Other verses tells us that Lut , Isaac and Jacob were also Imams. Read 21-66 to 21-73

[021:073]  And We made them leaders (ائمة – Aimma – plural of Imam) , guiding (men) by Our Command, and We sent them inspiration to do good deeds, to establish regular prayers, and to practise regular charity; and they constantly served Us (and Us only).

(Yusuf Ali Translation)

Similarly , there were Aimmas from the children of Israel also.

32:23 ولقد اتينا موسى الكتاب فلا تكن في مرية من لقائه وجعلناه هدى لبني اسرائيل
‏32:24 وجعلنا منهم ائمة يهدون بامرنا لما صبروا وكانوا باياتنا يوقنون

[032:023]  We did indeed aforetime give the Book to Moses: be not then in doubt of its reaching (thee): and We made it a guide to the Children of Israel.

[032:024]  And We appointed, from among them, leaders (Aimmas), giving guidance under Our command, so long as they persevered with patience and continued to have faith in Our Signs.

Now they all have a superiority over the 12 imams of Shiites. They are Prophets as well as Imams. But the 12 Imams of Shiites are only Imams, and not Prophets. Their concept of Imamate actually fails in the very verse in which they try to to prove it.

The Holy Quran also says:

‏38:26 ياداؤود انا جعلنك خليفة في الارض فاحكم بين الناس بالحق ولاتتبع الهوى فيضلك عن سبيل الله ان الذين يضلون عن سبيل الله لهم عذاب شديد بما نسوا يوم الحساب

[038:026]  O David! We did indeed make thee a vicegerent (the word used here is Khalifa) on earth: so judge thou between men in truth (and justice): Nor follow thou the lusts (of thy heart), for they will mislead thee from the Path of God: for those who wander astray from the Path of God, is a Penalty Grievous, for that they forget the Day of Account.

(Yusuf Ali Translation)

Now our question to Shiites is, does it prove that  Caliphate is superior to the Prophethood also? The fact is that Imamate concept of the Shiites is completely unfounded in the Holy Quran, they tamper with verses in extremely absurd way, more absurd than a person using this verse to say that Yazeed was a blessing of Allah.

‏42:26 ويستجيب الذين امنوا وعملوا الصالحات ويزيدهم من فضله والكافرون لهم عذاب شديد

[042:026]  Wayastajeebu allatheena amanoo waAAamiloo alssalihati wayazeeduhum min fadlihi waalkafiroona lahum AAathabun shadeedun

May Allah protect us from tampering with the Holy Quran. Amin.
