The event of Ghadir Khumm is taken grossly out of context by our Shia brothers who use it as proof that Ali ibn Abi Talib was nominated by the Prophet to be the next Caliph. This article includes rebuttals of common Shia arguments. The truth is that the Prophet never appointed Ali to be the next Caliph, and this is a distortion of the facts.
The Shia will look within the Hadith collection of the Ahlus Sunnah in order to prove their viewpoint. However, the Shia will oftentimes need to make use of academic deciet when they quote such Hadith. One such example can be found when they procure Hadith about Muawiyyah.
The Shia propagandists often claim that the Hadith about the Quran and Sunnah (i.e. “I am leaving you with the Book of Allah and my Sunnah…”) is weak or even forged. This is a blatant lie; according to the standards of the Hadith scholars, the Hadith about the Quran and Sunnah is Sahih. The following is a dialogue between a Shia propagandist and Shaikh Gibril Haddad.
The Shia understanding of Hadith al-Thaqalayn is nothing short of deviancy and error; and inspite of their vociferous slogans claiming adherence to the two weighty objects, the Shia are in reality the worst and vilest deniers of the Thaqalayn. This article will help the reader to understand the true meaning behind the Hadith al-Thaqalayn as understood by the great majority of the Muslims.
This is a Hadith commonly used by the Shia. However, it is an inauthentic forgery.
The Shia propagandists have used and abused the Hadith of the twelve Caliphs and therefore we felt that a response was necessary. We hope that this response will adequately silence the Shia propagandists and will end the confusion on the Sunni side as to what the appropriate response should be. Insha-Allah from now on forwards, Sunnis can simply refer the Shia to this article when the question of the Hadith of the twelve Caliphs comes up.
Despite the fact that Umm al Mu’mineen Aisha is part of the blessed Ahlel Bayt, the Shia propagandists revile her; of the many slanders they utter against her, one of their favorites is to claim that the “horns of Satan” or the “head of Satan” would emerge from Aisha’s house. This is based on their horrible misinterpretation of Sunni Hadith which they then propagate amongst the ignorant ones amongst the Sunnis. In this article, we analyze the Hadith and refute the baseless Shia accusations against our Mother Aisha.
The Shia propagandists make a big fuss over the so-called “incident of the pen and paper” or what they ominously refer to as “Black Thursday”. The Shia exaggerate about the Hadiths on this topic, and use them as some sort of proof against Umar ibn al-Khattab. However, the truth of the matter is that these claims are nothing but the melodramatic antics of the Ghullat gossipers who seek to make a mountain out of an anthill. In this article, we shall examine said event in an objective and reasonable manner, after which we will respond to the Shia accusations.
The Prophet said to Ali, “Will you not be pleased that you will be to me like Haroon to Musa?” The Shia use this Hadith in order to “prove” that the Prophet nominated Ali as his successor. In this article, we shall see how Hadith al-Manzilah does not at all serve as a proof for the Shia nor does it even help the Shia cause in the least, but rather the Hadith itself stands as nothing but a proof against exactly what they claim.
Ali ibn Abi Talib allegedly said: “I am a man of Allah, the brother of the Prophet, and the great truthful one (as-Siddeeq al-Akbar); anyone who claims this other than me is a liar, I offered Salah seven years before anyone else in this Ummah prayed.” However, this narration attributed to Ali is Mawdoo (fabricated).
In reference to the following Hadith: “I am the city of knowledge and Ali is its gate”, it is a forgery.
The Shia bring up this particular Hadith in Sunni books in order to attack the Ahlus Sunnah. In this article, we understand the Sunni perspective and refute the allegations levied by the Shia. This article may also be beneficial to those Muslims who wish to refute the non-Muslim polemicists who use similar arguments as the Shia.
In reference to the narration: "There is no sword except Dhul-Fiqar, and there is no brave youth except Ali", it should be known that it is not authentic.
In regards to the following narration: “Whoever died and in his soul was hate towards Ali, died like a Jew or Christian”, it should be known that it is not authentic.
In regards to the narration: “You and your shias are the best of creation”, it should be known that it is not authentic.
