Answering-Ansar’s CHALLENGE, a ridiculous one though

AA says:

 

With this matter, the Ummah of Muhammad (s.a.w) have been clearly informed that in the Ummah of Musa (a.s) the one to be nominated as the first successor of Musa (a.s) was not someone out of the family but it was Musa’s (a.s) brother. That is why in the Ummah of Muhammad Mustafa (s.a.w) also, the first person to be nominated as his vicegerent was Ali (a.s) who is the brother of the holy Prophet (s.a.w). The word ‘Brother’ has been clearly mentioned in the Qur’an. That is why the holy prophet (s.a.w) referring to Ali (a.s) has said, ‘Ya Ali, Anta Minni Bimanzilati Haruna Min Musa Illa Annahu Laa Nabiyyu Ba’di’, O Ali your position in relation to me is tantamount to that of Harun with Musa, except that there will be no prophet after me. He also said ‘O Ali you are a brother to me in this world and the hereafter’.

Challenge

The above two traditions of ‘Position’ and ‘Brotherhood’ are accepted by both the sects though a few Nasibis have tried to belie it. Therefore, there is no proof whatsoever regarding the holy Prophet (s.a.w) having referred to anyone else apart from Imam Ali (a.s) as his brother or as someone whose position to him was like that of Harun (a.s) to Musa (a.s)! The enemies have tried very hard to put a cover over this tradition but fortunately light could not be blocked from shining.

 



As far as the argument that Aaron was Moses’s successor, than what connection it has to the Shia claim of Imamate for Ali, since Aaron died before Moses. So how can anyone use it as an argument to prove the imamate of Ali?

Abdul Sahib al Hasani al Aamili says in his book ‘AlAnbiyaHayatuhumQasasuhum’

It is absolutely believed that Aaron died before Moses, and it is said that God ordered Moses to go with Aaron to a mountain called Hur, so they went along and there Aaron died and Moses buried him and went back to the Israelites and he told them about the death of his brother Aaron, but they denied that and charged him for killing Aaron

Now as far as the challenge is concerned, it either shows the deceptive nature of AA , or their ignorant nature. Since it is very clearly mentioned in Sahih Muslim:

Muslim :: Book 31 : Hadith 5871

‘Abdullah b. Mas’ud reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: If I were to choose a bosom friend I would have definitely chosen Abu Bakr as my bosom friend, but he is my brother and my companion and Allah, the Exalted and Gliorious, has taken your brother and companion (meaning Prophet himself) as a friend.

 

Answering Ansar’s clear deception about Ahlelbayt

AA said

The Wives of the Prophet are not included in the Ahlulbayt

We cite the following proof:

Tafseer Ibn Katheer, v4 p4 Al Azhab
Tafseer Ruh al Ma’ani, p22 V13
Tafseer Kabeer, p213 Volume 5 [printed Egypt]
Tafseer Durre Manthur, p189 Volume 5
Nazool Al Ibrar, p58
Zakhair al Uqba, P22

In this case we will only cite an extract of the book Nazool Al Ibrar by Allamah Badkhashani al-Hanbali:

Umme Salma said that Rasul was in my house, the servant told us the Ali and Fatima have arrived, the Prophet stated, “Oh Umme Salama, please go elsewhere as my Ahlulbayt(as) has arrived, Umme Salma stated that I got up and sat in one corner of the room. The Prophet took Hassan and Hussain in his laps and he put his hands on Ali and Fatima’s head and showed his affection toward them. He put the mantle on them and raised his hands to the sky and prayed, Oh Allah, for your sake me and my Ahlul Bayts(as)…

Points to consider

The Prophet told Umme Salama that ‘my Ahlulbayt have arrived, please go elsewhere’. If the wife of the Prophet were a member of Ahlulbayt then Rasul would not have asked her to move away.

It is stated in Tafseer Durre Manthur that Umme Salama asked the Prophet (s) whether or not she was included amongst the Ahlulbayt(as) The Prophet replied that you are amongst the wives of the Prophet(as). Abu Bakr and the wives of the Prophet are not included in the people of purity. If anyone does not accept this out of enmity then it is between him and Allah. We cannot see any clear Hadeeth that mentions the wives of the Prophet or Abu Bakr within the fold of the Ahlulbayt of the Prophet (as).

The AA actually tried to deceive its readers at two places. Lets read the narration as is mentioned in Tafsir ibn kathir ( Click Here )

عن عطية الطُّفَاوِيّ، عن أبيه؛ أن أم سلمة حدثته قالت : بينما رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم في بيتي يومًا إذ قال الخادم: إن فاطمة وعليا بالسدّة قالت: فقال لي: “قومي فَتَنَحي عن أهل بيتي”. قالت: فقمت فتنحيت في البيت قريبًا، فدخل علي وفاطمة، ومعهما الحسن والحسين، وهما صبيان صغيران، فأخذ الصبيين فوضعهما في حجره فقبَّلهما، واعتنق عليا بإحدى يديه وفاطمة باليد الأخرى، وقَبَّل فاطمة وقَبَّل عليا، وأغدق عليهم خَميصَة سوداء وقال: “اللهم، إليك لا إلى النار أنا وأهل بيتي”. قالت: فقلت: وأنا يا رسول الله؟ صلى الله عليك. قال: “وأنت”

First of all, the translation of

قومي فَتَنَحي عن أهل بيتي

is not,

please go elsewhere as my ahlelbayt have arrived.

Rather its correct translation is

Stand up and make room for my ahlelbayt.

(see al-Mawrid p. 377 for the meaning of تَنَحي عن  )

 

Secondly, AA didn’t narrate the complete narration, because it is  going to refute the whole theory of AA team.

I will mention the last part of this narration this time only.

وقال : اللهم ، إليك لا إلى النار أنا وأهل بيتي . قالت : فقلت : وأنا يا رسول الله؟ صلى الله عليك . قال: وأنت

AA team only translated the first part and left out the last part.

… and said , Oh Allah, towards You , me and my ahlelbayt, and not towards the hell fire. She said that I then said : And me O messenger of Prophet (s)? He said : And you as well.

But the most amazing thing on which AA should be given award of deception is that it left out all the narrations, in which it is clearly mentioned that the Prophet (s) clearly included Umm Salma as part of his ahlelbayt.

عن أم سلمة قالت : في بيتي أنزلت { إنما يريد الله ليذهب عنكم الرجس أهل البيت } قالت : فأرسل رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إلى فاطمة وعلي والحسن والحسين ، فقال : هؤلاء أهل بيتي . قالت : فقلت : يا رسول الله أما أنا من أهل البيت ؟ قال : بلى إن شاء الله

Umm Salmah said: in my house it was revealed ” God wants to remove all kinds of uncleanliness from you Ahlul-Bayt ” So the Prophet PBUH then sent after Ali and Fatima and Hassan and Hussein. He said: these are my Ahlul-Bayt. So Umm Salamah said: O Messenger of Allah? am I not also from your Ahlul-Bayt !? He said: yes Inshallah.

خلاصة حكم المحدث: إسناده صحيح

So who says that there is not any clear hadith in which it is mentioned that any wife of the Prophet (s) is included in ahlelbayt?

Please refer to this article  by our brother for more narrations in which it is clearly mentioned that Umm Salma is included in the ahlel bayt. And since Umm Salma is included in ahlelbayt, so it once again disproves the extremely weak claim of Rafidha that the wives of the Prophet (peace be upon him) are not included in the ahlelbayt. The Shias have proven themselves to be the false claimants of the love of Ahlelbayt. Since they have extreme hatred for some of the wives of Prophet (peace be upon him), hence it would not be wrong to call Shias the haters of ahlelbayt. The ahlelbayt are free from the religion of bloodshed, mourners, outright liars, enemies of the prophets and the swearing upon the companions of the Prophet and his ahlelbayt (peace be upon him) under the pretext of love for ahlelbayt.
