  1. 1. 70 UNANSWERED QUESTIONS A Challenge to the Shi’ites By Muhammad Mansur Ibrahim Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Sokoto Rendered To English By Barrister Muhammad Nasiru Sidi Published By Ahlulbaiti & Sahaba Foundation, Nigeria
  2. 2. In the Name of Allah Most Gracious Most merciful EULOGY BY LATE SHEIKH JA’AFAR MAHMUD ADAM (May Allah have mercy on his soul) The following are the direct statements of late Sheikh Ja’afar Mahmud Adamafter he finished delivering the translation and meanings of the Qur’an (tafseer) at theroutine time in the jumu’ah Mosque of Uthman bin Affan located at Gadon Kaya, onjumu’ah 15th Muharram (1428AH), equivalent to 2nd February 2007. It was exactly tenweeks (10wks),which is equality to Seventy days (70days) before what Allah destinedwould happened to him. May Allah reward him abundantly and accept him as a martyr,ameen.They are as follows; “There is a tape of Mallam Mansur, Seventy questions that have no answers; allare directed to the Shi’ites. I listened to the whole of the tapes on my way from Sokoto toKano. Frankly speaking, I have never heard a convincing lecture in Hausa language thatdiscussed Shiism as those tapes. It is nothing but an inspiration from Allah; it will be agreat loss if it happened that you have never listened to the tapes. However, it instigates me personally to present it to brothers in Islam for them todistribute it, whoever records tapes should have them for distribution amoung thepopulace. I gave my words of advice to the author i.e. Mallam Mansur, that thetapes/lecture should be converted to a book for easy accessibility. On a serious note, the tapes are really convincing, and May Allah reward himabundantly. Further more, I’m not marketing the tapes on behalf of those that areresponsible (tape recorders), but if a student of knowledge missed it, then he has incurreda great loss. I admit that I learnt a lot, and by this Allah is my witness. There are some things Iknew and he reaffirms them to me, and there are others that I never knew of, I heardthem. Conclusively, the tapes are of utmost importance, Look for them! Look for them!!Look for them!!! I am re-attesting this to you.” 2
  3. 3. In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful Introduction These questions were delivered and presented in the masjid of Sultan Bellosituated at Sokoto town, on Friday 14th Dhul Qidah 1427(AH) equivalent to 2nd December2006. I challenge the shi’ites with these questions, giving them assurance that if theyanswer only 7 out of them I will declare myself as a shi’ite. The program was organized by “Ahlul baiti & Sahabah foundation, Nigeria” thefoundation which pledge to create awareness to the public of the part that exited betweenthe students/companions of the propet sallahu alaihi wassalam and his household( Ahlul baiti). Because this two parties as Allah described them are one and the same,they have the same life style, they are their brothers keeper, and they have affection forone another and help one another. They live and practiced the same doctrine, they haveone leader, and their objective in life is single, I.e. following the footsteps of our leader,the prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam. The following questions and those that are akin to them are as a result of a longresearch conducted by Sunni scholars on the Religion of Shi’ah, and their grippingarguments/challenges among the Shiite from time immemorial. This could be evidentlooking at the history of Sheikhul Islam Ibn Taimiyyah during his life time, so also lateSheikh Ihsan Ilahi a Pakistani among others. However, this kind of challenge was also directed to Shi’ite in a program stationed by“Al-Mustaqillah” channel, conducted during the month of Ramadhan 1418(AH). It was alive transmission of two hours daily from the beginning to the end of the mouth, and wastransmitted to different parts of the world. The Sunni scholars like Sheikh Usman Al-Khamis, Saudies, Sheikh Abdurrahman Dimashqiyyah, Iraqis and Sheikh Abul MuntasirAl-Balushi, Iranian, are among those that hade this kind of sessions with “Ayats” ofshi’ah, and they challenged them with similar questions like mine. These kinds ofquestions can be viewed in the Sunni web pages, especially the pages of alburhan.com,wylsh.com, and fnoor.net. e.t.c. I came across a book written by Sheikh Sulaiman bn Salihu Al-kharashi titled“As’ilatun Qadat shababas Shi’ati Ilal haqqi”. It was a week after I delivered my lecture.We also share the same doctrine, and we use the same authority i.e. following research onshi’ite books and the statements of their scholars of the past and the present. One other reason that influenced me to present these challenging questions is thefact that, the state and some local government representatives attended a workshop of sixmonth at Iran. They are presently back in the country with what they thought is realknowledge. These questions are presented to them for it may lead them to the fact aboutthe devilish doctrines that were introduced to them. Our hope is that piety should be their yardstick in response to these questions. Wehave no doubt that they are seekers of truth and were misguided. However, if they reasonwell, with Allah’s Mercy, they are then pressed to return to the truth i.e. the footpath ofMuhammad Sallahu Alaihi Wassalam (Sunnah). 3
  4. 4. In conclusion, I must thank Allah the Almighty that eased my task. And also,must extend my appreciation to Barrister Muhammad Nasiru Sidi who transcribed thepresented lecture into English. I followed the whole of the work and chaptarised it, I alsoadd seven (7) additional questions to the first seventy (70), the question ever chapterisedinto ten (10) chapters all with the intention of simplifying it for the shi’ite to understandthe truth. May Allah help us. Abu Ramlah, Muhammad Mansur Ibrahim At Sokoto, 01/06/1429AH-06/06/2008 4
  5. 5. Chapter 1 Shi’ism and IslamQuestion one: This question is underlined under the saying of Allah (Subhanahu Wata’ala) inSuratul Ma’idah verse 3 where he says;“… this day, I have perfected your Religion for you, completed my favour upon you, andchosen Islam as your Religion…”. The above verse was revealed on the 10 th year after migration (Hijra), ninetyseven (97) days before the demise of the Noble prophet Sallahu Alaihi Wasallam. This isan automatic indication. that the Noble prophet has spent twenty-three years preachingthe Religion of Islam. However, it is also ten years after the establishment of Islamicstate. The Religion of Shi’ism, its doctrines and politics, attempted rebellion of theReligion all happened after the demise of the Noble prophet. The question here is Shiism part of the Religion that was perfected on the day ofArafah or not? If it is part of that Religion, then why didn’t the Noble prophet mention it?Why didn’t he establish his Religion on it? Why didn’t he teach his students about it? Anif it was after the Religion has been perfected that the Religion (Shiism) emerged, thenwhat is its need?Question two: It is a known fact that when Sayyidina Uthman was martyred, the whole of theMuslims paid homage to Aliyu bin Abu dalib Radiyallahu Anhu . The mantle of authorityand leadership was given to him unanimously. It was after he decided to change one ofthe Governors he met in power, and that Governor has a massive support of his citizens,further more, the blood compensation of one of the Governors household that wasmurdered i.e. Sayyidina Uthman, and that was the point that triggered disagreementbetween them. That was the motive the terrorist used to ignite their temper and causedwar. The question here is, when Sayyidina Ali Radiyallahu Anhu was in position ofauthority, why didn’t he proclaim Shi’ism? Why didn’t he produce a new Qur’an? Whydidn’t he decree temporary marriage (mut’ah) and perform it? Why didn’t he give theacclaimed farm of Fatima radiyyahu anha that you always claim (fadaq) and hand itover to her heirs? Why didn’t he abrogate “Assalatu Khairun Minan Naumi” that you saidis an innovation of the companions? Why didn’t he also add “Ashhadu Anna AliyyanWaliyullah” in the Adhan proclamation, since doing so is part of Religion in your 5
  6. 6. doctrines? Why didn’t he deviate from any of the things that the three Khalifs(successors) did? Is this not a clear indication that Aliyu is a Sunni and not shi’ite? And he has acomplete loyalty and affection to those successors that preceded him against yourinsinuations?Question three: Kulaini in Al-Kafi (1/397) has a chapter that he titled: “ the rise of Imam(establishing an authority) will lead by the laws of the Jews”. He proceed by saying; “…they will never request for an evidence nor witness (in dealing with issues regardingevidence)” (then the murder of who ever is not a shi’ite will be rampant whether he is theone with convincing argument or not in any lawsuit). In the book “Biharul Anwar”(52/354) Majlisi said; “when Mahdi appears, he willcome with a new Religion, a new book (scripture) and new laws/decrees”. Nu’umain alsocorroborated this in the book of “kitabul Ghaibati” pp 154 It was reported in the a fore mentioned book that Ja’afar As-Sadiq said; “I canforecast/prophesize Mahdi when he will appear in the Ka’abah between Ruknul Yamaniand Maqamu Ibrahim, he will be pledging to people on an authority to follow a newscripture and not the Qur’an”. The above was reported in the book; “Biharul Anwar”(52/135) However, Majlisi in the above book (Biharul Anwar) said; “when Mahdi appears,by the time people notice how he will commit murder, they will have wished he hadnever appeared.” He continued; “… Majority of citizens will doubt him as a bloodrelation to the Prophet, sallahu alaihi wassam because if he is a member of the (Prophet)household, he is bound to be merciful. My question here is, why is it that if your Mahdi appears he will be governed bythe laws/decrees of the Jews? Is it not that prophet Muhammad; sallahu alaihi wassalamdecree has abrogated all laws before it? Why should they leave the Qur’an aside? Is thisnot a pointer that the origin of your Religion is from Jewish Religion joined with Magus(paganism), wrapped with Paganism and named Islam?Question four: What is the relationship between your Religion (Shi’ism) and the parsianlanguage? This is because you disregard Arabic language completely, and you give highesteem to Parisian and their language above any language or person. Before youdisconcour let me give an example that will clarify my intent.Your books revealed that if your Mahdi appears, he will murder the Quraysh, and murderthe Arabs, Further more, among his names is “Kisrul Magus” The king of pagans! Youalready confess that “Choesroes” the King of Persia that tore the letter of the Prophetsallahu alaihi wassallam as you say out of disrespect will dwell in the hell fire but hellfire is prohibited against him. However, your books also gave more priority to SalmanulFarisy over almost all the companions of the Prophet, Abu Lu’luata, a pagan that killUmar is earning great respect in your doctrines, you also visit his grave yard. 1 Al-1 . The cemetery that they visit in the town of Kashana of Iraqis not the real place that he was buried.Because Abu Lu’luata was killed the day he murdered Umar. How on earth could his grave becomesituated at Iraqi while he was killed at Madinah? How can one even detect the grave of such a criminal? Heis not a Muslim and wasn’t buried in the Muslims graveyard? But the Shiite have their fables that led him 6
  7. 7. Gharithi in the introduction/preface of his book “Aqdud durar fi Baqri Badri Umar” said;Abu-Lu’luata is entitled to Allah’s mercy even though he is not a Muslim. Visiting hisgraveyard and praying for him is among the great deeds that earn rewards, because of thegreat act he deed for the murder of Umar, the in-law of the Noble Prophet sallahu alaihiwassalam !!!! Don’t you see how Al-Ahqaqi in his book “Risalatul Islam” pp 324, he protestedagainst what people that are filthy, devils and thoroughly bad “as he said” did tosanctified woman of Paris (Pagans) when it was conquered. He is referring to thecompaions of the Prophet sallaju alaihi wassalm !!. The place of Karbala located at Iraq (Persia) is better than Makkah and Madinahunder your doctrines. This reached to the extent that the degree of Ka’abah in comparisonwith Karbala is like what a needle will carry of the water from an ocean; this is theassertion of Majlisi in Biharul Anwar (98/106). Indeed, today Iranian nation has adopted Parisian language as an official languageas provided under the provision of Iranian constitution P 3. This shouldn’t be a surpriselooking at the fact that, most of the recognized and authorized scholars of shi’ite, that areallowed to give their respective opinions in religious matters are foreigners (Ajami) i.e.they don’t speak Arabic language. Scholars like Khumaini, Khamna’ei, Rafsanjani, andKhatame, even Sistani “Sayyidul Muhaqqiq” the real leader of the shi’ate scholars of thistime. All of them do not speak Arabic! Just some year’s back, Al-jazeerah channel hasan interactive session with the leader of Nigerian shi’ite, but Arabic was translated to himand he responded in English language! Don’t you notice that? !!! before then, heconfessed that he could not not read Arabic text without vowel singns !!!.back to Kashana. 7
  8. 8. Chapter 2 Questions On (Imamah) Leadership The Religion of Shi’ism is based on the doctrine that Aliyu bin Abi XalibRadiyallahu Anhu is the first successor or rather leader (Khalif), This is how the name,Imamiyyah, was derived and attributed to them. They insinuate that the Prophet sallahualaihi wa sallam willed the succession of leadership to Ali Radiyallahu Anhu, and theprogeny of Ali Radiyallahu Anhu should be the train of the Will. This doctrine was the main reason why the shi’ites viewed the companionsespecially those that succeeded the Prophet before Ali as leaderships taken by force,tyrants’ unfaithful to the Prophet and his will/bequest. This issue regarding leadership isof utmost importance to the Shi’ite, because they take it as the greatest pillar of Islamwhich the other pillars can’t stand if it is not established, they reached to the extent ofsaying that it is even more than prophet hood in importance.2Question 5: Why is this great pillar of Religion not mentioned in the Qur’an jus like the otherpillars whom you think they are not as important as it (Imamah). Allah has mentioned somany things in His detailed book (Qur’an). Lets take prayer as an example, not even theprayer it self , purity, ablution, ceremonial ablution, qibla & even excrement werediscussed in the Qur’an. Further more, what is prohibited or otherwise were mentioned and discussed inthe Qur’an the blessed book, as Allah says; “When he hath explained to you in detail what is forbidden to you – Exceptunder compulsion of necessity…” Q6: 119. However, not even things that are compulsory or otherwise even those that arerecommended and discouraged are discussed in the Qur’an. Things like loan, hunting,have almost four verses revealed.3 Why is it that a verse wasn’t revealed to declare the leadership of Aliyu, this isevident because there is no verse that shows Aliyu to be the first leader of MuslimCommunity after the demise of the prophet. Why is the name of Aliyu not mentioned inthe Qur’an but the name of Zaidu is very clear in Suratul Ahzab? It’s a known fact that Shi’ite scholars had a consensus that Aliyu’s name isprovided in hundred of Qur’anic verses but the companions removed it. This is clear intheir holy book; Alkafi. A million-dollar question here is where is the safety and guardAllah has promised regarding the Qur’an?2 Usulul Khafi (1/227), its commentary As-Shafi Sharhul Khafi (5/28), Biharul Anwar (26/82), Wadi’unNubuwwah pp114, Aslush Shari’ah wa Usuluha pp 58.3 Q5:1, 94, 95, 96 8
  9. 9. Question 6: On the day of conquest of Makkah, the Noble Prophet sallahu alaihi wassalmborrowed the key to the door Ka’abah from the tribe of Banu Dalhatu who are thecustodians to the keys; this was an inherited custom from time immemorial. When the prophet conquered Makkah, he requested the key to open the door ofKa’abah, this was a very tragic event to Banu Dalhah that the end of their custody to thekey has come, and this led them to crying. Immediately Qur’an was revealed on the issuewhere Allah says; “Allah doth command you to render back your Trusts To those to whom they are due;And when ye judge Between people That ye judge with justice: verily how excellent is theteaching which He giveth you! For Allah is He who heareth and seeth all things.” In response to above verse, the Noble prophet took back the keys to Banu Dalhah,he further make a pronouncement that re-affirm their custody of the key till the day ofresurrection and said; “Take the keys O Banu Dalhah, it stays with you forever, and no one will take it awayfrom you except a tyrant.” Our question here is, if an issue of just the keys to Ka’abah the prophet sallahualaihi wassalam was so direct and clear for establishing the trust of the custodians, andthe trust is just for custody and not ownership, then why is there no any bequest orpronouncement regarding the leadership of Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu that you alwaysclaim? Why didn’t the Prophet make such a pronouncement and say; “take this leadershipo the family of Ali, forever and no one will take it away from you except a tyrant” whydidn’t the prophet sallahu alaihi wa sallam do this? Is the concept of leadership moreimportant than any thing as your insinuation asserts?Question 7: You always claim that your twelve leaders are infallible. If you are asked to giveproof /authority, you would say the reason of their leader ship as well asa beinginfallible that the Noble Prophet clothed Ali, Fatima, Hassan and Hussain and said; “OhAllah! These are my household, and then remove all abomination from them, make thempure and spotless” However, since Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala purifies them then they are regardedas infallibles (ma’asum). Our question here is, why didn’t you call Fatima as (ma’asumah), we didn’t seeher name among your leaders because that Prophetic tradition is the evidence ofleadership in your doctrine!! Further more, where are the cremaining nine leaders in thatverse or the Prophetic tradition?Question 8: During the life of Muhammad sallahu alaihi wassalam many people fromdifferent cities did come and convert to Islam at Madinah, After that, they returned tothere various cities. Many of them met the Noble Prophet once, twice or thrice. Thesekinds of people have never heard of anything as regard the leadership of AliyuRadiyallahu Anhu as the one the prophet bequeath leadership to as you always claim. Our question here is, is their Islam complete or is yet to be completed? Are theyhaving a mini-Islam? !!! If you say there is reduction and is a mini Religion, then why 9
  10. 10. didn’t the Prophet sallahu alaihi wassalam complete it for them and explain thisimportant pillar? But if you believe their Religion is complete, then what is the essence ofthe statement that Religion is incomplete without attesting to the leadership of AliRadiyallahu Anhu. Is this an affirmation that the Noble Prophet sallahu alaihi wassalam has shorten hismessage as Khumaini profess in his book “Kashful Asrar” he believed that “The Prophetsallahu alaihi wassalam has not completed the message of Allah regarding Aliyu as hecompleted Allah’s message of his Prophet hood”?Question 9: It is a known fact that the Shi’ites claim that Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu is theperson who own the right of leadership, and those successors before him are tyrants thatwere in power by force, then why was he a member in a constituted six man committeeduring the demise of Umar Radiyallahu Anhu, and from among them, a successor wouldbe selected. The detail is as follows; when Umar Radiyallahu Anhu was in the process ofdemise after he was stabbed while praying, he became optimistic that he will die, UmarRadiyallahu Anhu then announce six names, and from among them a new leader shallemerge. He testified that all of them are equal to the task and qualified, and that theirrelationship with the Noble Prophet was cordial. These six people are; Uthman bin Affan, Aliyu bin Abi Dalib, Abdurrahman binAuf, Dalhatu bin Ubaidullah, Zubair bin Auwan, Sa’ad bin Waqqas. They were given theultimatum of three days to announce who shall be the next leader, and an interimgovernment was constituted. During the first sitting of that committee (Shurah), they agreed that three shouldstep down and let the contest be between the three others. However, one of them i.e.(contesting three) stepped with the consensus that he shall choose between the remainingtwo i.e. Uthman and Ali Radiyallahu Anhu. Abdurrahman bin Auf was now the one thatwas given three more days to decide who shall be the new leader, after variousconsultations with the Muslim ummah, he nominated Uthman Radiyallahu Anhu whoemerge as the new leader (Khalif) of the Muslims. Our question here is, why didn’t Ali Radiyallahu Anhu told them that he was theinitial chosen person by Allah , Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala and the rest shall automaticallywithdraw? Why then did he accept the membership of the Shurah if he knew that his rightwould be taken away from him? If he knew the initial bequest of the Noble prophetSallahu Alaihi Wassalam, then what is the essence of contesting for the office?Question 10: If what you are claiming is a fact, that the Noble prophet sallahu alaihi wassalamwished Ali Radiyallahu Anhu to be his successor, he even made an effort to inform hiscompanions. But it is a known fact that under Islamic doctrine, a leader is the one whosupposes to lead prayers. Why didn’t the Noble prophet sallahu alaihi wassalam instructAliyu Radiyallahu Anhu to lead prayers even if it was just once before the demise of theProphet. Either from our books or yours, our source of history or yours, is their any sourcethat established Ali Radiyallahu Anhu to have led prayers even if it once? From both our 10
  11. 11. books and yours we knew that Abubakar Radiyallahu Anhu led prayers. But there is noany source that informed us Ali Radiyallahu Anhu has led prayers, why? And you say heis the leader by bequest/will!!!Question 11: Why did Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu accept so many offers of appointment ondifferent occasions during the reign of Umar Radiyallahu Anhu? Example; when UmarRadiyallahu Anhu was to leave for Qudus to collect the keys to the third 3 rd mostimportant and sacred masjid after was conquered under the leadership army of Khalid binWalid. During that time Umar Radiyallahu Anhu appointed Ali Radiyallahu Anhu as theacting Khalif of Madinah (Governor), at that time, the office was like the office of Vice-President. Because he will be an automatic President (Amirul Muminin) of the interimadministration i.e. de facto president before the new president is elected as de jure. Why did Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu take the office of a Special Adviser, andGovernorship office under the reign and administration that the Shiite termed it as anUnislamic and tyrant? See Nahjul Balagah pp 325 & 340. Further more, when Umar Radiyallahu Anhu was on his way to wage war againstIraq and later changed position and returned to Madinah, he appointed a representativewho was Ali Radiyallahu Anhu as Governor of Madinah (Vice-President). SalmanulFarisy also was once a Governor at Madinah under the reign of Umar, Ammar bin Yasirwas the Governor at Kufah under the same administration, and these two companions areclose associates of Ali Radiyallahu Anhu. See Siyaru A’alamin Nubala’I (1&547, &422). Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu was also a Judge during the same reign, why didn’t heclaim and profess his leadership, and for that reason he should have denied to serve underthe administration of Umar?Question 12: Why didn’t Ali bin Abi dalib Radiyallahu Anhu climb the (mimbar) of the NobleProphet Sallahu Alaihi Wassalam even once just to inform the Ummah about his right?For example; to say; “Oh people;! Remember the Noble Prophet sallahu alaihiwassalam instructed me to lead you, so go against these tyrant?” and this could be doneif the three successors that came before him are really tyrants as you claim?Question 13: Is Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu not a warrior? Where is the warrior ship? Why didn’the fight those that took away his sacred right? In the books of Shi’ah, it was written thatthe leadership of Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu was a divine revelation from heaven, and Allahsubhanahu wata’ala referred to him as Amirul Muminin as it came in their popular book“Al-kafi” authored by “Kulaini.” Then why didn’t Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu declare areligious war against them to protect his sacred revealed right? Or is there any evidencethat there was a war between him and those that succeeded the Prophet before him? Ordid he request for any aid from the Ummah as the position of his son Hussain when hemade effort to fight Yazid as a tyrant? 11
  12. 12. Question 14: In the book of “Nahjul Balagah” pp 136 one of the most outstanding book toShi’ites, it was said that; Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu has requested that the leadership shouldnot be given to him after Uthman Radiyallahu Anhu died, this was because of themisfortune and calamity the Ummah was facing. A “Coup d’etat” was successful and theplotters came from Kufah, they were very few, not more than two thousand (2000) men. But they were left to actualize their mission because Uthman Radiyallahu Anhudisallowed the people to counter their attack. Finally, they lunched their attack againstAmirul Muminin (President) and murdered him in his residence, in the sacred city of theNoble Prophet sallahu alaihi wassalam. The following was the reported request of AliRadiyallahu Anhu as it came in Nahjul Balagha; “Leave me alone and look for someone else, for me to be a minister to help thepresident is better for you than I become the President (Ameer).” Our question to the Shi’ites here is why didn’t he accept his right that wasrevealed by Allah subhanahu wata’ala? Is he afraid? Then who is he afraid of afterAllah subhanahu wata’ala? If he was defeated and bullied at the initial stage, now thatchance was clear to establish Allah’s command has come, he should have use thisopportunity? Or is it a fallacy on what you always claim about Allah’s instruction?Question 15: Why did you exclude the family of Al- Hassan from leadership? But you establishit to the family of Hussain? The following is the list of your leaders (imams) as recordedin your books; none came from the family of Al-Hassan except him;1, Aliyu bn Abi dalib2, Hassan bn Ali3, Hussain bn Ali4, Ali bn Hussain (Zainul Abidun)5, Muhammad bn Aliyu bn Hussain (Al-Baqir)6, Ja’afar bn Muhammad bn Ali bn Hussein (As-Sadiq)7, Musa bn Ja’afar bn Muhammad bn Ali bn Hussain (Al-Kazim)8, Ali bn Musa bn Ja’afar bn Muhammad bn Ali bn Hussain (Ar-Ridha)9, Muhammad bn Ali bn Musa bn Ja’afar bn Muhammad bn Ali bn Hussain (At-Taqiyyu)10, Aliyu bn Muhammad bn Ali bn Musa bn Ja’afar bn Muhammad bn Ali bn Hussain(Naqiyyu)11, Alhassan bn Ali bn Muhammad bn Ali bn Musa bn Ja’afar bn Muhammad bn Ali bnHussain (Al-Askari)12, Muhammad bn Hassan bn Ali bn Muhammad bn Ali bn Musa bn Ja’afar bnMuhammad bn Ali bn Hussain (Mahdi) Why is it that all your (Imams) leaders are Hussain’s lineage? Why was thefamily of Al-Hassan not included? Is it not establishing the fact of the accusation againstyou that, it is because Hussain is an in-law to Choesroes the king of Persia you give himand his lineage high esteem because they have blood relation with Choesroes, who wasthe leader and King of fire worshippers? Historical source show that when Persia was conquered during the reign of UmarRadiyallahu Anhu and the daughter of Choesroes the King of Persia was taken as acaptive name “Shaharbanu”, Umar Radiyallahu Anhu then showered his favour and gave 12
  13. 13. Hussain Radiyallahu Anhu that Princess as a gift, all the children of Hussain are from hisunion with this slave girl, the daughter of the King of present (Iran). Looking at the facton how paganism and pagans were against Islam, coupled with the fact that Islamsucceeded to conquer and destroy their Religion (paganism), and their kingdom that wasbuilt by their fore fathers, this triggered them to establish Shi’ism. The Religion wasbuilt by their fore farthers, this triggered them to establish Shi’ism. The Religion washowever establish on household ship, connecting it to the Noble Prophet sallahu alaihiwassalam but although the real image connected with for their yardstick, the king ofPersia. If you disconcur with this assertion, then we need an explanation of whatdistinguish and make the image of Al-Hussain higher than Al-Hassan, as reported in yourbooks. Among others are;“Tanqihul Maqal” by Mamaqani (3/142) A’ayunus shi’ah(1/26), Biharul Anwar (27/212), Kitabus Sulaimi ibn Qais pp 288.Question 16: It is a fact that your 12 th leader (Mahdi) has hidden himself in a cave for over athousand years, then what is the reason? In Iraq there is a special day that the Shi’itesgather to cry and seek for his quick emergence, this will make him to save the Ummah,he is a Messiah that will save the Ummah against tyrants!!! There some new scholasticopinions that are mostly found in the Internet establishing that spread of vices should beencouraged because it will quickly ease the emerge of Mahdi. From the first instance why did he hide himself? It’s a fact that fear of tyrantleaders during the Abbasids was the reason for his disappears. Then why didn’t he appearafter the downfall of that empire? The Shi’ites later established newgovernments/Kingdoms of “Ubaidiyyah” and the later authorities after that like“fatimiyyah”, “Buwaihiyya”, “Safawiyya? Even at our Present time we have IranianRepublic, which has in her possession the “Nuclear weapon of mass destruction” how canwe believe the Mahdi that fears tyrants can fight against tyranny for the Ummah? Question 17: It was reported that during the birth of your acclaimed Mahdi, some birds camefrom heavens and were playing with their feathers and surpassing on him, they weretouching his face and head and flying away, this was their routine acts. When his fatherwas told, he smiled and replied; it was the Angels that came to have good fortune withhim, and when he will acquire leadership, they are his helpers. Our question here is if the Angels are his helpmates then why should he disappearand hide, who then dose he fear?Question 18: It was reported in your books that the life lf Mahdi was prolonged because of theimmense need the Ummah has for him, as it was reported in the book of Minhajul-Karamah of bin Mudahhir. Our question here is if there is any being whose prestige could reach that his lifeis prolonged, then why wasn’t the life of the Noble Prophet prolonged? Or is it that inyour creed Mahdi is more valuable and important than the Prophet, or is it that theUmmah needs him more? 13
  14. 14. Question 19: It is your (Shi’ites) creed that your 12 Imams including Hassan and Hussein allhave the knowledge of the unseen and they don’t die until they so wish to die, This waswhat was reported in your most authentic book Al-Kafi. Then why did Hussain takehimself to death? Why did Al-Hassan eat the poisoned food? He has the knowledge ofthe unseen and will eat a poisoned food? Did he commit suicide? We know that theNoble Prophet sallahu alaihi wa sallam said; “whoever commit suicide will dwell hellfire.” Are you trying to say Al Hassan has committed suicide after he knew there waspoisoned and eat the poisoned food?Question 20: You also acclaim the infallibility of Al Hassan & Al Hussain, this also goes to therest of your 12 leaders. This is the consensus of your scholars, it is evidence in yourbooks among which; Ikmaluddeen by Saduq, Aqidatul Imamiyyah by Muzaffar andHukumatul Islamiyyah by Khumaini. One of your musicians from Kano (Gadon Qaya)has added the 13th in his hausa poem where he said : Zazzakiyyu is a Religion reformer The only infallible Every Emir is also a follower Oh the restless should understand Is not an abuse to Emirs? Our question is between these two infallible who is right? Is it Al-Hassan or Al-Hussain? Al-Hassan without any duress gave Banu Umayyad the mantle of authoritygiven to him; he passed it over to Muawiyah. Al-Hussain made an attempt to bring backthat leadership which led to his assassination. Who among them acted right? We should be aware of the fact that when Al Hassan gave out this authority,thousands of followers are answerable to him, and were ready to surrender their lives forhis safety, he was already the leader. Al Hussain has in his camp only his household andsome of his blood relatives that are not more than seventy, mainly women and children.Some of them that notice their weakness left and run away. Those that face the army andfight with him are not up to 50. But he still insisted to accomplish his aim. Who is on the right path between them? Is it the one who has thousands of armyand willingly surrender the mantle of authority to Banu Umayyad? Or the one whoinsisted on fighting Banu Umayyad without any strong army, who is right between them? According to Sunni creed, they are not infallible, and Al Hassan is more rightbecause the Noble prophet sallahu alaihi wassalam praised him and what he did, thiswas when the Prophet was giving good news of the happenings. He said; “this mygrandson is a leader, and one day he will be an arbiter between two Muslims though theyfight each other, this is because is a war of a misunderstanding not a war against belief(creed). Hussain was wrong in disregarding the advice given to him by observers, destinyled him to miscalculations, because fighting an established government (incumbent) bytrusting the shi’ites, whom never stand by their words, is just an act of destiny. TheShi’ites before this incident assassinated Ali and Al Hassan Radiyallahu Anhu. Before Hussain Radiyallahu Anhu was assassinated, he has given up, and noticedreally that the Shi’ites had planned against him. He then gave three options i.e. to go backto Madinah, or proceed and fight together with muslim warriors or the last option to 14
  15. 15. surrender himself to Yazid and pledge his allegiance to him. Some Muslims includingsome of his household and some companion concur with the last option. They denied himaccess to any of these options as an individual. This led him to fight the government butnot as a rebel. Our wish and hope was he being a martyr, and his assassins should expectand wait for Allah’s anger and wrath if they didn’t repent. Martyrdom of Hussain is a blessing that Allah bestowed on him as he bestowedon his brother Al Hassan, this is for the elevation of their honor to enable them attaintheir established destiny of the saying of our Noble Prophet sallahu alaihi wassalam, ;they are the youth leaders of paradise. Before the death of the Noble Prophet they werekids, none of them witnessed any religious war, but by their assassination, Allah has gavethem the honor that slipped them. This is our creed we Sunni, and we await your answers you the Shi’ites, who isright and wrong between them?Question 21: In the book of Al-Kafi (1/252) it was narrated; “the 12 leaders knew the day theywill die and none will die unless by will.” further, more in the book of Biharul Anwar(43/366) Al- Majlisi narrated “none of the Leaders has died a natural death, its either heis assassinated or he is poisoned”. It is an established fact in our creed that who ever commits suicide will dwell inhell fire, by the narrations reported from the Noble Prophet Sallahu Alaihi Wassalam.Then when your leaders were poisoned, are they aware of it and ate the poison, is this nota suicide? Or were they ignorant of it? Or are all these stories fallacies? i.e. the narrationsby Kulaini and Majlisi.Question 22You persistently acclaim that Hussain died with thirst and narrated that he said;“whenever you drink water remember me” in the states that shi’ah is established, thereare special places set for drinking water and written boldly; “drink and remember thethirst of Hussain”4 Our question is that doesn’t he has the knowledge of the unseen? Isn’t he aware ofhis thirst? Why didn’t he come with enough water? Allah instructs us to carry weaponswhen embarking on war; how can we travel with weapons and forget of food. Go toSuratul Anfal verse 60, Allah says we should make provision if we are to go for a war. Isthere any good provision of some one to take than water if he is liable to death on thejourney? Our creed is that Hussain is ignorant of what is about to happen to him, but hefollowed his destiny as decreed by Allah, but you that said he has the knowledge ofunseen we await your explanations.4 it is funny to know that in Lebanon Hizbullah deny Ahlussunnah drinking from that water, especiallyareas that Shiite are dominant, the Sunni there don’t know of this Hussein and the thirst (story). The Sunnionce claim the compensation of Hussein’s death. 15
  16. 16. Chapter 3 Shi’ah And Qur’anQuestion 23: The Shi’ites you accuse the companions of changing the Qur’an, and many ofyour narrations from your authentic books confirm that. You believe that our Qur’an isfake, because you accuse the companions of hiding the original Qur’an, for example, inthe book of Biharul Anwar (24/305) it was reported from Abu Abdullah, Ja’afarus Sadiqalaihis vsalam he said: “The Qur’an was revealed in four different categories; the firstcategory was revealed on us (household of the Prophet), the second category wasrevealed against our enemies (companions), the third category are combination oftradition and proverbs, the fourth is the composition of compulsory duties, and somerules of authority. All the honors and dignity of the Qur’an is revealed on us”. Imagine!!! A quarter of the Qur’an is bunch of proverbs; this is the base of theirargument against the companions, that they hide the first two categories of the Qur’an.But if you read the whole of the Noble Qur’an from beginning to end, there is no placewhere the companions were dishonored and accused but vice versa. Our question here is if the companions hide some portion of the Qur’an where isAliyu? Why didn’t he unfold it? Or are they the only ones under obligation and AliRadiyallahu Anhu is not under that obligation? If he unfold it, then where? What did herevealed? Where is the new Qur’an? Produce your proof if you are truthful.Question 24: If the companions hid half or the provisions of the Qur’an because they hate thehonor of the Prophet’s household, then why didn’t they hide the Prophetic traditions thatrevealed their honor? They are evidenced in both your books and ours. At this juncture, Iwill not give example with your books (Shi’ites), I will use our (Sunni) books that are ourpride. After the Qur’an, there is no any book of high esteem and authenticity than thebooks of Bukhari and Muslim. Let us bring some example from them as regards thehonor of the Prophet household. E.g. “ Whoever I am his close inmate then Aliyu is alsohis close inmate.” We can deduce that the whole Shi’ites creed is based on this tradition. It was reportedin Bukhari by more than 20 companions, in the science of hadith it reach the peak ofauthenticity i.e. (tawatir), the companions reported it and we believe in it but ourargument is the misinterpretations given by you the Shi’ites. The Noble prophet Sallahu Alaihi Wassalam make this pronouncement on hisway back from the farewell pilgrimage at “Ghadir Khum” the Shi’ites refer to this placeas a junction where people disperse and follow their routes to their various town/cities,and they claim it to be the reason that the Noble Prophet choose this location to informthe Ummah that Ali Radiyallahu Anhu is his successor. To authenticate this story; I traced the source and origin of this particular placeand asked resource persons in Saudi Arabia, it led me to know the particular place(Ghadir Khum). It was established that the distance from Makkah to this place is 250kilometers on your way to Madinah. 16
  17. 17. Lets use our reasoning and see whether it comprehends that pilgrim will take 250kilometers before each will take his route? The people of da’ifa as an example, their townis not more than 40 kilometers from Makkah, those from Iraq follow a different routeback nothing will connect them to Madinah. The people of Kufah, and Basrah will notreach “Ghadir Khum” for them to take their routes. This also re-affirms that GhadirKhum is not junctions for disperse by pilgrims. The fact of the story was that the Noble Prophet Sallahu Alaihi qWassalam madethe pronouncement after all have dispersed, and warn the people going to Madinahagainst what he was hearing against Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu. The main reason was thatAliyu Radiyallahu Anhu led an army, after the war, some of the companions wanted toexhaust some booties and he denied them until they reached Madinah. The Noble Prophetmakes this pronouncement for them to identify the dignity and honor of Ali RadiyallahuAnhu and whoever dishonors him will dwell hell fire. We the Sunni’s believe that whoever dishonor Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu will dwellhell fire, and there is no any Sunni who dishonor him. Go to places that Sunni aredominants you will have many of their children named Ali, if we dishonor him how canwe name our children with his name? Our question is why didn’t the companions hide the above tradition? And morethan 20 twenty of them narrated the tradition, it clearly shows the honor and dignity ofAli Radiyallahu Anhu, how possible it is to believe that they hide some Qur’anic verseson his honor and the Prophetic household at large?2nd example: The hadith of “Kisa” (cloth) is another base of the Shi’ites creed. The hadithshows that the Noble Prophet covered Fatima, her husband and two of her sons AlHassan & Al Hussain and said; “Oh Allah!! These are my household, remove evil deeds and sins from them andpurify them with thorough purification.” The Mother of believers, Aisha Radiyallahu Anha and Ummu SalamahRadiyallahu Anha, narrated the above hadith.3rd example: The hadith that portray the honor of Ali Radiyallahu Anhu and his position, it says; “Your position to me is like Harun’s position to Musa.” Harun is a junior brother to Musa likewise Ali a junior brother to the NobleProphet, but the first category are Prophets while in the second category Ali is not aProphet. Sa’ad bin Abi Waqqas was the narrator of the above hadith while the shi’ites referto him as an apostate because they claim he dishonor Ali Radiyallahu Anhu. The Hadithwas reported in Bukhari (3505). 17
  18. 18. 4th example; On the night of Khaybar, the Noble Prophet said; “tomorrow I will give a flag tosomeone that loves Allah and his Prophet, also, Allah and his Prophet loves him & wewill be victorious” Because of the above good fortune, all the companions wished to be in possessionof the flag. Umar Radiyallahu Anhu said; I leaped on that day for the Noble Prophet tosee me and call me, at that moment; the Noble Prophet called on Ali and gave him theflag. Sa’ad bin Abi Waqqas & Salamah bin Akwa were the narrators of the hadith, andreported also in Bukhari. Why didn’t these companions hide this honor but they hidesome portions of the Qur’an on Ali’s honor and dignity?5th example: A hadith that show the honor of Fatima and her children, are many. Among themwas her position of the First lady in the Paradise, and her children as the youth leaders inParadise. Further more, Al-Hassan was referred as a born leader and arbiter of two Muslimcamp/factions. So many narrations on how the Prophet cherishes them and his saying;“Oh Allah I really love them so please love them also.” The above traditions were narrated by Usamah bin Zaid, Barra’u bin Azib, Anasbin Malik & Abdullah bin Umar among others and all are reported in Bukhari, why didthey unfold these traditions? The tradition on the honor and dignity of Prophet household as regard their loveas obligation and hatred as great torment were all narrated by the companions. Whyshould they hide the Qur’anic verses on that and reveal the prophetic traditions? Or doesAllah not guard the Qur’an? Why did he (Allah) guard the hadith and didn’t give theQur’an such guard? Lets think!!!Question 25:It an established fact, that the companions of the Prophet Sallahu Alaihi Wasalamnarrated and reported the Qur’an directly from the Prophet. And the chain of narration forQur’an is (Mutawatir) i.e. peak of all chains in the study of transmission. We have tendifferent narration of the Qur’anic rondos having two schools from each rondo, all thenarrators are Sunnis. In the present world, three rondos are the most exposed, i.e. Nafi’u, Asim andAbu Amrul Basri. The rondo of Nafi’u is well exposed by two of his schools of Warshand Qalun; the rondo of Asim is exposed through the school of Hafs while the rondo ofAbu Amrul Basri is exposed through the school of Duri. All the printed copies of Qur’aneven in Iran are one of these rondos, but is mostly published and printed with the schoolof Hafs, which he narrated it from Asim, from Abu Abdurrahman As-Sulami, fromUthman bin Affan, Ali bin Abi Dalib, Zaid bin Thabit, Ubayy bin Ka’ab. Our question is where does the Prophetic household narrate the Qur’an? Where isyour chain from Ali bin Abi Dalib? What of the chain of Al Hassan, Al Hussain & ZainulAbidin?Where is the chain of Ridha from Kazim, from Sadiq & Baqir?What of Askari from Naqiyyu & Taqiyyu? 18
  19. 19. Are they not your claim as natural born leaders and Allah’s plea against hiscreatures? Did they teach everything with the omission of the Qur’an? Why should you referto unbelievers’ narration (as you claim)? Researched proved that there is only oneQur’anic narration of rondo from the prophetic household which is the rondo of HamzaAz-Zayyat (Sunni) narrated from Sadiq, from Baqir and from Zainul Abidin, where is theshi’ites narration of this rondo? Why is it that Zayyat a Sunni scholar is the only narratorand reporter? Why didn’t Kazim narrate from Sadiq? Or Askari from Naqiyyu? FromTaqiyyu from Kazim & from Sadiq? And this narration is very rare to find, why don’tyou publish and recite that rondo since is the only household narration? We await your claim of Qur’anic rondo narration either (mutawattir or shadh)from the Noble Prophet Sallahu Alaihi WAssalam.Question 26: The Qur’an of Fatima that you always make reference to, was mentioned in yourbook “Al-Kafi” (1/239); a stranger came to the house of Abu Ja’afar and say; I want toask you a question but confirm weather there is secrecy in the house, he opened through acurtain and replied; ask what ever you wish, the infallible Imam said; we really have aQur’an called the Qur’an of Fatima, is a Qur’an that triple your Qur’an, in the content ofour Qur’an, there is no any word which you have in your Qur’an. What an amazing situation, a Qur’an without Bismillah? !!! Is the ProphetSallahu Alaihi WAssalam aware of the Qur’an or not? If he is aware, why did he notinform his companions? Why did he hide it for the Ummah? While Allah says;“Oh messenger of Allah! Proclaim (the message) which has been sent down to you byyour Lord. And if you do not, then you have not conveyed his message…” But if you say he is not aware of it then how do you come across it? The fact is, aShi’ites scholar Dabrisi has revealed the secrete where he published a book titled;“comprehensive explanation in confirming the changes of Allah’s book”. He brought more than two thousand narrations of Shi’ites that confirmed that thisQur’an is pirated/fake, he brought views of Shi’ites jurists, Shi’ites hadith scholars andall that Shi’ites see them as the most highly respected scholars of their creed. Heconcluded by saying; “it is imperative to believe that the present Qur’an of the Ummah isfake” However, sayyid Hashimul Bahrani the author of Al-Burhan said in theintroduction pp “49!” is my opinion that as this issue has been well researched andconfirmed, it is imperating to authorize every Shi’ite to believe as pillar of faith that thisQur’an is not authentic. This was the aim of the tyrant leaders that rule before AliRadiyallahu Anhu, lets reason more and judge their actions”. Yes we reason, think andconfirm your fallacies. Ni’imatullahi Jaza’iri, a Shi’ite scholar was giving a reply and challenge to thosethat believe the Qur’an is original, he replied as follows;“ Who ever believes that the whole of this Qur’an that is with the Ummah is the originalQur’an revealed through Jibril has contradicted the narrations of our leaders, and friends,because their narrations are (Mutawatir). But by believing in that, he is automatically nota Shi’ite” (Al-Anwarun Nu’umaniyyah 2/357) 19
  20. 20. Further more, the following was reported from Al-kafi; “who ever thinks there isan original complete Qur’an in possession of any being is a great liar. This is because noone memorized it how it was revealed from Allah only Aliyu and the leaders that camefrom his progeny” Al-Khu’i, a great Shi’ite scholar of the contemporary time, as coated in the booktitled “Lillahi Summa lit Tarikh” pp 80 he said the following; “I urge you to use thisQur’an of our present time before the Qur’an of Fatima is revealed”. What a surprise!!! The Qur’an should be used for occasional purpose? When andwhere is the original Qur’an? They are not in possession of Fatima’s Qur’an nor Is it intheir memory, we know there is no any special Qur’an left for Fatima. The Shi’ites claim to have more than Fatima’s Qur’an, they have among others,Al-Jami’ah, its details is found in Al-Kafi (1/239), Biharul Anwar (26/25). They have another Qur’an called “An Namus”, it was mentioned in “BiharulAnwar” (25/117). There is also another book/manuscripts which they claim was revealed,it is called Al-Abitah, it was mentioned in Biharul Anwar (26/37), another one is called“Zu’abatus Saifi” Biharul Anwar (25/56) Lastly, they also have Al-jafar which they believed is a revealed book from Allah,“Usulul Kafi” (1/24).”Question 27: It is a known fact that your books are filled with establishing that companionsbecause of their selfish desire faked the Qur’an. Then do you have any narration thatshows the Qur’an is complete and has originality? I reply by saying you haven’t anynarration that says this in your books, but if you challenge me you can bring your proofs.Question 28:During the reign of Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu why didn’t he produce those books? Ifduring the reigns of Abubakar, Umar, Uthman he is not in power, during his reign he hasabsolute authority not to fear anything or anyone. Why didn’t he produce it to put theUmmah in the right path? You also claim that Ali Radiyallahu Anhu has the Qur’an as it was revealed i.e.from Suratul Alaq to “alyauma akmaltu lakum …” which is different from the Qur’anand the prophet and the companions arranged it, but his own is chronologically, then whydidn’t he produce it during his reign? 20
  21. 21. Chapter 4 Other Leaders Before Ali Radiyallahu AnhumQuestion 29: It is an established fact and a peak of narrations (Mutawatir) that AliyuRadiyallahu Anhu makes so many public pronouncements in the Prophet mosque asfollows; the best of this generation after the Noble Prophet is Abubakar, then Umar. Why did he (Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu) praise them? You can reply bysaying is dissimulation. Then why don’t you all practice it? If you will engage inpracticing dissimulation, it would have been better!!!Question 30: Why was the Noble prophet buried in the room of an unbeliever inyour creed/doctrine and together with whom you regard as unbelievers? Under yourcreed, Pharaoh is better than these two persons (Abubakar & Umar). Why was theProphet not protected against this evil? In this world they were his most intimate friends,and presently they are still the closest and most intimate to him, but you believe they arenot together on the day of resurrection, why should Allah make them this close? Why and where was Ali Radiyallahu Anhu when the Prophet wasburied in Aisha’s room? He should have discouraged it and never let it happened! Orwas his bravery at decline during the death of the Noble Prophet?Question 31: The shi’ites believed that the first three successors of the NobleProphet were unbelievers, why did Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu pledge his allegiance tothem? Fought religious war with them during their reign? Some of your scholars answer the above questions with the reason fornot to have a violence breakout (fitna), but why did he engage in the battle of the camel,were he fought against Aisha, & Dalha & Zubairu Radiyallahu Anhu, and the battle ofsiffin, where he founght MA’awuya and his Muslim followers of Syria (Shams), the twoled to the massacre of over 70,000 seventy thousand Muslim from both sides. The Sunni doctrine never see any fault in these battles he engagedhimself, because it was a destined violence breakout (fitna), which if it breaks out youhave no chance to escape. As a result of this breakout, the companions were of theredifferent opinions, some were with Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu because he is a legal Muslimleader, some with Muawiyya for the argument and fight he claim against thoseresponsible for the murder of Uthman Radiyallahu Anhu to be brought to book. Lastly thecategory those hang on the fence without taking side but busy trying to reconcile the twoparties. This third category was the opinion of the majority of the Prophet’s companionsjoin and later many shared the same view, even Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu. But the shi’itesnever have this opinion as tangible, all that occur is nothing but Allah’s destiny 5 we await5 For detailed explanation, the book titled “kadara ta riga fata” “Allah’s destiny against the wish of shi’ite,”2006 21
  22. 22. your response to the above question, and his reason that made him not to fight thosebefore him.Question 32: The shi’ites believed that the leaders before Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhuwere tyrant and force themselves to power because of worldly benefits; they denied therevealed leader as the Prophet pronounced because of selfish interest. What did they accumulate during their reign? Who was rich amongthem? When Umar died, there was debt of which the whole of his family and tribe mencannot settle, but was only settled after some of the Quraish extend there helping hands.Abubakar & Uthman were initially known as rich and clergy; their riches were disbursedfor the uplift of Islam during their life time. Who among them nominated his son as asuccessor? If really there is a selfish interest, it should have been extended to theirsiblings? You the shi’ites claim and say Ali Radiyallahu Anhu bequeath the leadership tohis son Al Hassan? Why didn’t Abubakar bequeath to his son Abdurrahman? Why didn’tUmar bequeath to his son Abdullah? Why didn’t Uthman bequeath to his son Abanu?Question 33: What & which interest the rest the companions have for disobeying thewill of the Noble Prophet? What did Abubakar gave them (companions) or promisedthem that led them follow him against Allah & Muhammad Sallahu Alaihi Wassaamcommands? Initially, they left everything and every one because of Allah, this action wasmentioned in the Qur’an 5:100 among others. How can you reply a member of Khawarij creed and doctrine if heaccuses Aliyu’s Radiyallahu Anhu reign for a massive blood shed of innocent Muslims,while the other three leaders before him establish the root of Islam, conquer Unislamiccountries & kingdoms and Islamatize them. During the reign of Uthman and the occasionof his death, coup plotters came to Madinah and he denied any counter attack againstthem with the reason for discouraging blood shed of Muslims, they attacked his houseand massacre him. While during the reign of Ali Radiyallahu Anhu he traveled as far asKufah & Basra to fight those that didn’t fight him but only presented a request prior, thiswill make them give their allegiance & pledge, and this reason was what led to the battle.What then shall be your response? Further more, if he (Khawarij) poses the following again how will yourespond to him; the three leaders were aid’ed by Allah during their reigns, they fought thegreates dynasties on eath by that period and they were victorious. They past the messageof Islam to various nations successfully. While Allah didn’t aid Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhuduring his reign, because he never fight an enemy, nor did he extend the Islamic landwith a meter they were on the right path while Ali isn’t, that’s why his assassinatorswere from his discifles who rebelled against him lastly. What shall be your response?. The actual fact is that Sunni’s are the only ones that can defend AliyuRadiyallahu Anhu from all these accusations. We the Sunni’s that believe with theleadership of the three successors, and that all their victories Ali Radiyallahu Anhu waspart of it. And what occurred during his reign was only what Allah destined but not hiswill & wish as the leader. Almost all the accusations the Shi’ite accuse the leaders beforeAli were the same accusations the Khawarij point fingers against Ali Radiyallahu Anhu 22
  23. 23. in the eyes of a reasonable man, all the honor and dignity the Shi’ite elevate Ali is moredoubtful than if such elevation are positioned to the leaders before him. 23
  24. 24. Question 34: Shi’ites accuse Umar of denying the Noble Prophet write what he saidwill be the path to faith and that the Ummah will not go astray if they stick to it after hisdeath, you claim that it was his will for leadership but Umar denied bringing any paper. In the narration of your books, you said that Umar even say that theProphet was demented, but our authentic books have no such added narration. What wasnarrated in Bukhari and other Sunni books was; “Depression accruing to the illness of theNoble Prophet is much, don’t increase his depression/illness. The book of Allah (Qur’an)is enough.” This was according to you the instruction of the prophet that hedestroyed and for that reason he is an unbeliever. He was responsible for the evil deedsof the Ummah because he led them astray by living the Prophet died with sadness,displeasure and sorrow of not delivering the last message. Where was Ali Radiyallahu Anhu at that time? Why didn’t he followthe Prophet’s instruction? Or was the instruction directed to Umar alone? Is Umarstronger than Aliyu? Or is he more influential? Why didn’t he fight him or fight hisopinion against the Prophet’s opinion and make sure that the mission of the prophet wasfulfilled? The reported narration in “Musnad” of Ahmad, it was AliyuRadiyallahu Anhu that replied and say; I can memorized it, say whatever you wish, theProphet Sallahu Alaihi Wassalam replied; I urge you to be firm in prayers, Zakah shouldbe given out as commanded and explained, I also urge you to be kind to your slaves.6 If the paper was not brought, who actually denied the paper to bepresented? Is it the one who said he can memorized or the one who said that depression ismuch let us give him time to rest?Question 35: The above happened on Friday morning, why didn’t he request forthe paper during the whole daytime? After that, he has Saturday, Sunday and Mondaynoon before he died, he never mentioned it again, he should have request for it again?Question 36: This sorrow that you said the Prophet died of which he wants topronounce, is it part of the Religion or not? If your answer is, “it is part of the Religion,”are you insinuating that the Prophet died and the Religion was not complete because hedidn’t make the pronouncement? If it is not part of the Religion, what then is the need forall these?Question 37: Must this message be in writing? Why shouldn’t it be pronounced forthe public that will serve as a reference?6 There are things to ponder in this bequest, it shows the foresightedness of the prophet, the reason forkindness to slaves can be for the future happenings of attairing leader ship. If their children were not welltrained, the next Ummah will suffer a lot. 24
  25. 25. Question 38: Who on earth inform you of the content of what was somebody’sintention, which he didn’t mention? You claim it was the name of a successor that wasthe will, have you the knowledge of the unseen/unknown? Or are your leaders who wereblessed with such knowledge (unseen) your source?Question 39: Since Umar Radiyallahu Anhu is an apostate because he disobeysProphet instructions, then what shall be the status of Ali Radiyallahu Anhu, when he wasinstructed to clean the Prophet’s name of Prophet hood, and replace it with his real nameand surname, during hudaibiyyah (treaty) which he didn’t? What was the action of AliRadiyallahu Anhu here? Under Sunni doctrine both were right, Umar was kind to the Prophetand discourage any stress or depression against him, and the Noble Prophet affirm it bynot requesting it again. While Ali Radiyallahu Anhu on the other hand showed how high& respect he has with Prophet hood, the Noble Prophet Sallahu Alaihi Wasallamrespected his opinion and clean the name himself. If Umar apostate by not producingpaper to the Prophet and disobeying him, then Ali Radiyallahu Anhu also was disobedientby not cleaning what he was told to clean ?Question 40: The doctrine of Shi’ite accuse Uthman for giving his relation specialregard and priority in terms of appointment, and special assignment, this make them Nikenamed him lover of relatives. Our question is why did Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu appointed also hisrelatives during his reign? During the reign of Ali Radiyallahu Anhu he appointed Abdullah binAbbas bin Abdul- Muxxalib as the Governor of Basra. (Abu Xalib and Abbas aregermane brothers). His Governor of Yemen was Ubaidullah bin Abbas, a brother toGovernor of Basra. At Makkah he appointed Quthamu bin Abbas, a brother to the aboveGovernors. At Madinah he appointed Ma’abad bin Abbas, a brother to the above threeGovernors. What a surprise!!! To have four Governors from the same family? They areall first cousins to the president? Further more, they are not the only relation of his that were part of hisadministration, his Governor at Khurasan was his Nephew, Ja’adatu bin Hubairah, hismother is the daughter of Abu Dalib. The Governor he appointed at Egypt wasMuhammad bin Abubakar Siddiq, don’t think he is not related to Ali the mother to thisGovernor is Asma’u bint Umais whom was married to Ali Radiyallahu Anhu when hewas appointed as Governor. Ali Radiyallahu Anhu married her after the death of herhusband Abubakar Radiyallahu Anhu. What!!! If is wrong to appoint a relative, then howcomes? !!! We want to bring to your notice that we the Sunni do not accuse AliyuRadiyallahu Anhu and what he did. he was right. Because public office should beentrusted to whoever qualify to occupy it without regard to his family background or hisorigin, all that is needed is his Islam and competency. But you that accuse UthmanRadiyallahu Anhu for appointing his relations, then what answer will you give in favour 25
  26. 26. of Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu on the same allegation for we to see and ponder, it might aidus to use the same defense for Uthman Radiyallahu Anhu. But Uthman has powerfulreasons than Ali Radiyallahu Anhu for many grounds. Among which is that he was notthe one that appointed them at the initial stage, he assume office while they were servingthe office they held, and he didn’t change them. However, the families of Banu Umayyad were those that the NobleProphet Sallahu Alaihi Wasallam appointed more during his life time as his officialstaffs. He rarely appoints the family of Banu-Hashim i.e. his family together with Ali inposition of authority, but during Ali they even have four Governors at a time.Question 41; In most of your books among which, “Kashful Gummah” by Arbali,“Biharul Anwar” of Majlisi, “Manaqib” of Khuwarizmi all narrated that UthmanRadiyallahu Anhu helped Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu with the dowry of his wife FatimaRadiyallahu Anhu why should he accept such a kind gesture from an unbeliever orapostate and an enemy of Allah? As you always claim.Question 42; Why did Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu sent his children Alhassan andAlhussain to counter attack the rebels that came to assassinate Uthman RadiyallahuAnhu? This is evidence in both Sunni & Shi’ite books refer to “TarikhulUmam” by Dabari, the topic on what happened between thirty- second year of hijra.Also, “Muruz Dhahab” by Masudi (2/344). Why should Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu send his children to defend andapostate/unbeliever, and a tyrant that denied the Prophet household their right (power).He should have allowed the coup de-tat for him to claim his right easily. If you disconcurwith this story and that he did nothing during the attack against Uthman, what will yougive the Khawarij answer to their allegation that he (Ali) was responsible for the coup forhim to attain leadership of the Ummah.Question 43; You believe that Mu’awiyah Radiyallahu Anhu is an unbeliever, whythen did Alhassan give him the leadership of Muslim Ummah? He appointed him as asuccessor to the Noble Prophet Sallahu Alaihi Wasallam. After the assassination of AliyuRadiyallahu Anhu the Muslim Ummah especially those at Kufah had a consensus thatAlhassan shall be the new leader, and they pledged their allegiance to him. But Shi’itedisconcur to this. There believe is that it is an appointment by the out gone leader, whoappointed his son as his successor, i.e. Ali. This is against the backdrop of the action ofAbubakar, Umar & Uthman. Alhassan assume the mantle of authority, and after sixmonth, he invited Mu’awiyya and gave him the leadership by stepping down willingly,this is just for peace to reign. He compels his people (Alhassan) i.e. the people of Kufahto obey the new leader. 26
  27. 27. Alhassan an infallible as you claim, has now stepped aside for anunbeliever to lead the Muslim Ummah? Or is it that Mu’awiyya Radiyallahu Anhu is aMuslim but you charge him with false accusation? 27
  28. 28. Chapter 5 The Companions Of Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam It is part of the Shi’ite doctrine that all the companions of the NobleProphet Sallahu Alaihi Wasallam apostate after his life time but they exclude very few.Some are of the opinion of only three or four, the maximum opinion they have is thirteencompanions, in these thirteen the in-laws o the Prophet, his wives and his other relativeswere all not included.Question 44: If one apostate he has to change from a Religion to another. If thecompanions apostate, from which Religion have they changed? Is it from the Religion ofShi’ite? Were they initially Shi’ite and apostate to Sunni? If the Religion of Shi’ism wasnot in existence during their time, then from what Religion do they apostate? But if youclaim that they change from Islam, what then was the new Religion they embrace?Question 45: What shall be your response to a man that challenge the practicabilityof Islam, because the Noble Prophet Sallahu Alaihi Wasallam failed to have those thatwill be firm in practicing the Religion during their life time. Since Islam wasn’tpracticable during his time, how on earth can the present or future generation practise it? Remember!! These are the ones that Allah praise their actions, curetheir hearts from any dirt of evil, He proclaimed His trust in them in His Glorious Book,if they are found wanting, whom on earth could be firm?Question 46 the Shi’ite accuse the companions of disrespecting Prophet’scommand and opinion during the treaty of hudaibiyyah, he has the opinion to embark ona treaty while none of them share same with him, they all believed that they are on theright opinion, and they are powerful, even the Glorious Qur’an revealed to them promiseof entering Makkah, peacefully and perform Umrah a lesser hajj, while they came andwere not able to even enter Makkah. The Noble Prophet consented to the treaty which theterms were completely unfavorable to Muslims & Islam, part the terms were; whoever isa Quraish that embrace Islam and came to Madinah, the Noble Prophet shall return himback to Makkah, while if among his companions one will apostate, he has no rightagainst him and he should allow him return to Makkah safely. The companions were never certain for the possibility of this treatythey all believed that Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala will make a revelation that willdisconcur with the treaty, that was the motive when the Noble Prophet Sallahu AlaihiWasallam instructed them to sacrifice their animals and remove their “Ihram” they keptsilent and sat waiting for a divine intervention, the Prophet following the advise of hiswife led by example, this establish the fact that automatically this interding rite isimpossible, they later obeyed him and do as he did. 28
  29. 29. The Shi’ite interprets this action as amounting to apostasy by all ofthe companions. Our question is on those days were was Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu? Orwas he at home didn’t attend the treaty? Both our Books & yours establish his presence,what happened then? He should have obeyed instructions alone for him not to be amongthe apostates? Whatever shall be your response for his reason(s), will be the same for AbubakarRadiyallahu Anhu, Umar Radiyallahu Anhu, Uthman Radiyallahu Anhu and the whole ofthe companions.Question 47: You always accuse Zubair bin Awwam for fighting Aliyu RadiyallahuAnhu during the battle of camel, you claim that it was because he hates AliyuRadiyallahu Anhu. It seems you have forgotten, or assume not to remember that when theShurah committee was set up by Umar Radiyallahu Anhu among which the new leadershall emerge Zubair was the first to step down in favour of Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu,Dalhatu Radiyallahu Anhu stepped down for Uthman Radiyallahu Anhu, while Sa’ad binAbi Wakkas in favour of Abdurrahman bin Auf. If Zubair Radiyallahu Anhu hates Aliyuwhy shall he step-down in his favour ?Question 48: The wives of the Noble Prophet were not excluded from your falseaccusations, Hafsah & Aisha Radiyallahu Anha were attacked of so many allegation fromyour creed/doctrine. They are the prophet beloved wives while without fear or favour inyour books they were openly accused, among which are; “Tafsirus Safi” (2/720),“Biharul Anwar” (22/33), Siradul Mustaqim by Bayadi (3/165), “Aqaidul-Imamiyyah”by Zanjini (3/85) and almost all the Shi’ite books claim that these wives of the NobleProphet are unbelievers. While Allah says; Q24:26“Bad women are for bad men, and bad men are for bad women, Good women are forGood men, Good men are for good women: Such (good people) are innocent of (every)bad statement which they say; for them is forgiveness, and generous provision i.e.(paradise)” Shiite should be reasonable for discussion, if one will come to you andsay that your in-laws are bad people, your wife is an unbeliever, those you gave out yourdaughters in marriage to are bad people. You are a scholar and all your students are badpeople, with the exclusion of very few. Imagine, you spent 23years with them, they nevergained anything but disobedience on Allah’s command, automatically whom is he tryingto refer as bad man? 29
  30. 30. Chapter 6 Wives And Children Of The Prophet Muhammad Sallahu Alaihi Wasallam.Question 49: Why did you exclude all the children of Muhammad Sallahu AlaihiWasallam expect Fatima as members of the household? What offence have theycommitted? You excluded Zainab, Ruqayya, Ummukulthum, Abdullah, Ibrahim and theireldest brother Alqasim; dose their father hate them? Or is he the one that excluded themfrom his household?Question 50: Why did you exclude the wives of the Noble Prophet Sallahu AlaihiWasallam as part of his household? Lets be frank and shame the devil, if you are invited to bring yourfamily, and you brought everyone but you left your wife, are you just to the union andyour wife? Why wouldn’t you be just to the wives of the Noble Prophet Sallahu AlaihiWasallam ? Referring back to the Qur’an, the verse that discussed the issue of“Ahlulbait” household of the Prophet was discussing the wives of Muhammad SallahuAlaihi Wasallam , the verse that discussed the household of Ibrahim was referring to thewife of Ibrahim alais salam the household of Lut is referring to his wife, and the familyof Prophet Musa (Moses) gave reference to his wife as his household. Then why on earththe wives of the Noble Prophet should be excluded? for what hatred? What envy andenmity? Please let it subside! 30
  31. 31. Chapter 7 Relationship Between Prophet’s Household (Ahlulbait) & the CompanionsQuestion 51: It is a trite law that Islam commands us to choose the right andconscious person in marriage, either to marry or to give out in marriage, That is thereason that our Noble Prophet advises us to have good in-laws. Why should the Prophet Sallahu Alaihi Wasallam marry from a houseand daughter of personalities that are of questionable character? He married the daughterof Umar Radiyallahu Anhu whom you regard him as a bastard (an illegitimate child).This was the opinion of Bahrani in his book titled “Al-kaskul” (3/212). Furthermore, inthe book of Aljazairi (Shiite) titled “Al-Anwarum Nu’umaniyyah” (1/63) he said; Umarhas a mental illness (lunatic) that only subside with homosexuality!!! If narrating an issueof disbelief is not amounting to disbelief, this story couldn’t be narrated, but this story isthere in your books. Why should the Noble Prophet marry his daughter if what you aresaying is a fact? How could you feel if your in-law is being referred to as bastard,fornicator and a homosexual? 31
  32. 32. Question 52: Why did “Ahlulbait” marry the daughters of the companions? howshould they (companions) & “Ahlulbait” become in-laws while they are enemies? Thecreeds of Shi’ites always insinuate that the companions circumscribed the Prophet’shousehold. They held them hostile etc. All that Shi’ites are after is proclaiming the deniedfreedom. This led them to be visiting their tomb and praying for them against theirenemies i.e. (companions)? But why were they in-laws in the first place? Let’s give someillustrations; From the beginning, “The Noble Prophet” has in laws, who then werehis in-laws? His eleven wives were whose daughters? If you will disagree that not thewhole of the in-laws were companions, then what of Aisha and Hafsah? However, whom did he marry his daughters to? It is surprising thatmost of us are ignorant that the Prophet has four daughters whom he gave out formarriage, We all knew of his last daughter (Fatima). But the entire three daughters weremarried to the family of Banu Umayyad. Abu Asim bin Rabi’ah was his first son in-lawthat married his eldest daughter Zainab; he is a member of the Umayyad clan. The NobleProphet praised him as follows; “We became in-laws with him, we were happy of hisgesture, he promised us and fulfilled his promise.” The next two daughters i.e. Rukayya & Ummu Kulthum were marriedto Uthman Radiyallahu Anhu separately. In the history of mankind, there is no any beingthat was privileged to marry two daughters of a Prophet but Uthman Radiyallahu Anhu amember of Umayyad. This gave him the name “Dhun Nurain” “Owner of two illuminatelights.” This is Because whoever married the daughter of a Prophet is blessed with“illuminate light” (Albarkated light) and Uthman Radiyallahu Anhu was blessed withtwo. For us to have a thesis on this let’s only use the house of UthmanRadiyallahu Anhu alone.7 The eldest son of Uthman, Abanu bin Uthman married UmmuKulthum bint Abdullah bin Ja’afar bin Abu Dalib. Furthermore, Musa bin Abanu i.e. grandson to Uthman RadiyallahuAnhu married Ummul-Kasim bint Al Hassan, i.e. granddaughter, of Al- Hassan bin Aliyubin Abi Dalib. Additionally, another grandson of Uthman Radiyallahu Anhu i.e. Zaidbin Asim bin Uthman, married Sukainatu bint Hussain bin Ali. In the history of Arabia,narration proved that there was never a beautiful Arabian lady like her (Sukainatu) andher mate in beauty was Aishatu bint Dalha bin Ubaidadullah. Again, Abdullah bin Abanu bin Uthman married Fatima bint Hussainbin Abu Dalib, a junior sister to Sukainatu. All these marital relationship/unions are with between only one of thecompanions a clergyman of Banu Umayyads. All the above aside, are you aware of the fact that Yazidu binMu’awiyya, who the Shi’ites accuse him of assassinating Hussain is married to“Ahlulbait” i.e. Ummu kultum bint Abdullah bin Abbas bin Abdul-Mudalib, they hadtwo issues i.e. namely Amru & Abdullahi?7 For detailed expiation, read our book “Alaka tsakanin Ahlulbait da sahabbai” by sheikh Saleh Ad-Daruish, translated by Muh’d Mansur Ibrahim. “su wane ne masoya Ahlulbait” same another translated byAliyu Rufa’I Gusau 32
  33. 33. Wow!!! How true are your stories in trying to establish hatred betweenAhlulbait and companions? Or are they myths without source?Question 53: Why did Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu give his daughter for marriage toUmar bin Khaddab? Are you not the ones that said he killed her mother while she wasseeking for her right on inheritance? Or is that his reward of his evil deed? Is your doctrine that Umar Radiyallahu Anhu is a bastard/ illegitimatechild true? Every Muslim detastes this accusation against him during discussion andwritings, you refer to him as an unbeliever and he is more devilish than the devil. Yourscholar Ni’imatullahil Jazairi reported that on the day of resurrection the devil shall gazeat the painful torment of Umar Radiyallahu Anhu!! But why did Ali Radiyallahu Anhugive him his daughter for marriage? Was it because her mother (Fatima) died? Thisunion was reported in both your books and our book, Ummu Kulthum, daughter to AliRadiyallahu Anhu has two issues with Umar Radiyallahu Anhu i.e. Zaid bin Umar &Ruqayyah, bint Umar, these kids are always proud of their origin i.e. being descendandtsof two khalifs; their father Umar was a khalif their grand father is Ali who is also aKhalif. If Ali Radiyallahu Anhu is an infallible why did he give his daughterfor marriage to an unbeliever? You just have to go with either of these options, i.e. tobelieve that he is a believer, this has unraveled the bases of your creed. The second optionis that Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu is not infallible which will also unravel your creed.Question 54: After the demise of Fatima Radiyallahu Anha Aliyu married manywives and he had a lot of issues with them. My question will come after a very longdetailed explanation from Shi’ite books. I will not give the names of his wives andchildren from the Shi’at sources : “ Kashful Ghummah” “ Binarul Anwar” by Majlisi.They as follws : He first married Ummul Banina, the daughter of Haramul Kalbi, herissues with him were Abbas, Ja’afar, Abdullah & Uthman. He then married Laila from Mas’udut- Tamimi, their issues wereAbdullah & Abubakar. All these issues died with their brother Hussain at Karbala. He married Asma’u bint Umais one of the widows of AbubakarRadiyallahu Anhu after her window retirement. Further more, when Fatima RadiyallahuAnha the wife Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu died, she was the one that engineered her ritualbath. Asma’u married two warriors before Ali, she first marry Ja’afar bin Abi TalibRadiyallahu Anhu brother to Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu. In each of these three houses shehas “Muhammad” but with Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu she has only Yahya and Aunu. Butunfortunately all her issues were not opportuned to have families. Furthermore, Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu also marred Ummu Habiba fromthe family of Zam’atu this union was a result of a jihad he fought under the leadership ofKhalid bin Walid during the reign of Abubakar Radiyallahu Anhu, she was party of hisbooties, he freed her & marry her. Their issues were Ruqayya and Umar. This Umarlived for 35 yrs. He also married Ummu Sa’idu bint Urwatu bin Masudus Saqafi thecompanion of the Noble Prophet, their issues were Ummul Hassan and Ramlatul Kubra. 33
  34. 34. He also married Umamatu bint Abu Asim bin Rabi’u, she is agranddaughter to the Noble Prophet through the lineage of his eldest daughter Zainab, itwas narrated that Fatima Radiyallahu Anha before her death gave him a will to marry her. Umamatu is the young lady/pupil that the Noble Prophet normallycarry while praying, if he goes on prostration he sat her down on the ground and whileraising he carry her again. Their issue was “Muhammad Al – Ausat the middle.” He is thesecond of the three Muhammad, Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu name his children. Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu also married Khaulatu bint Ja’afar Al-Hanafiyyah, this union was during the reign of Abubakar Radiyallahu Anhu and she waspart of his booty of the “Ridda war.” Unfortunately, the Shiite disconcur the situation asapostasy (Ridda) during that time they always believe that it was just a rebellion againstthe established authority. Whatever may be the case Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu sacrifice hislife for the success of this war, it was in this process he was privilege to own Khaulah andtheir issue was Muhammadul-Akbar the big, popularly known as ibnul Hanafiyyah, somesects of Shi’ite classify him among the infallible Imams. During the demise of Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu he left behind fourwives, nineteen concubines. Among his female issues not part of those mentioned aboveare; Ummu Hani’in, Maimunah, Zainabul, Kubra, Ramlatus Sugra, Fatimah, UmmuKhadijah, Ummul Kiram, Ummu Ja’afar, Ummu Salamah & Jumanatu. He has fourteen14 males, and seventeen female children Most of them were martyred at Karbala. His progeny became dispersed & exposed through the families of Al-Hassan & Al-Hussain, and Al-Hussain’s lineage is through Zainul Abidin, the onlysurviving son of Hussain those who attended Karbala, he has no weapon because of his illhealth. The terrorist speared him for that. Muhammad ibnul Hanafiyyah, Abbas & Umarwere the privilege to have families that became dispersed in the world.Question 54: Why did Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu after the death of Fatima, and duringthe reign of Abubakar, Umar & Uthman Radiyallahu Anhu named his children with theirnames? All these names were reported in your books mentioned earlier. If you area reasonable enough, you can reason by the following; haveyou ever heard a Jew named his child Muhammad? Or a Muslim named his child Jacob?In this country (Nigeria) many of the Shi’ites have changed their names from Abubakar,Umar & Uthman, just not to associate themselves with bad names. Yesterday a lady cameto me confessing her repentance from Shi’ite to Islam, she even change her initial nameAisha during her Shi’ite days, she is now using her actual name Aisha, a Sokoto indigenefor that matter. Why should Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu name his children with the namesof enemies of Allah? Between all the Quraish Aliyu was the only person that named hischildren after these great companions. (Abubakar, Umar & Uthman). Is it because heloved them or otherwise? The Nigerian Shi’ites, you always change your names following theadvise from your holy land (Iran), this was evident after the return journey of NigerianShi’ites that came back from Iran, they were told that there is nothing good of whoever isnamed Abubakar or Umar. 34
  35. 35. Question 55: Why, when and where was the origin of this your innovation ofchanging names while your earlier scholars have those names and they didn’t changethem? Lets analyze your most holy book i.e. “Al-Kafi,” the introduction cansuffice to see the narrators of the acclaimed knowledge of “Ahlulbait.” The names of some scholars are as follows; Mufaddal bin Umar,Ahmad bin Umar Al-Halabi, Umar bin Aban, Umar bin Uzainah, Umar bin Hanzalah,Musa bin Umar, Abbas bin Umar. Why didn’t your earlier scholars change their names? But you changeyours? From the initial stage, these names were they because of love or hatred of Umar?Question 56: Why did Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu make sexual union with the womenprisoners that were part of his booties as a result of your acclaimed tyrant and brutal war?All the religious war that was fought during Abubakar, Umar & Uthman were regardedas brutality and tyranny by the Shi’ites. Why should he then have sexual relation withthem?Question 57: You the Shi’ites accuse Abubakar Radiyallahu Anhu for denyingFatima Radiyallahu Anha her inheritance, your musician of Gadon qaya said; “Remember of those before you even among the companions there were your Akins those that are more evil than you they committed heinous offence against Imam Ali Fatima was also not left alone.” “They meted a false charge/accusation against her husband Her father’s inheritance also Was denied to herThey fight with her husbandBecause he refuses pledging allegiance”. You claim that she was denied her right to inheritance by AbubakarRadiyallahu Anhu, she always cry by the grave of the Noble Prophet Sallallahu AlaihiWasallam and saying; “Oh the Prophet of Allah, I forward my grievances to you”!!Further more, she went to the market and disgraced Abubakar & Umar RadiyallahuAnhu. Umar Radiyallahu Anhu kicked her, she felt and it led to her miscarriage!! The Shi’ites named this miscarriage “Muhsinu”. But we knew that“Muhsinu” was her child that died after he has started dragging himself. Our question here is, Abubakar denied whose wife her inheritance? IsAliyu not nick named as the king of the lions? Is he not the leader of the warriors andbravery? Why didn’t he do something for her favor? If what you claim is true of themiscarriage, how can one comprehend? 35
  36. 36. Question 58: Or is it a revenge that Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu did by later marryingthe widow of Abubakar and they even have an issue with Abubakar i.e. Muhammadwhom was nursed & brought up by Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu, he was even appointed asGovernor by Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu?Question 59:The garden of fadaq, is it a gift or inheritance? If it is a gift, why was Zainab denied?Ummu Kulthum was also alive? She survived up to three years after Khaybar i.e. ninethyears 9yrs after Hijra, almost close to the death of the Prophet, she was still alive. Whywas Fatima given alone? Was it not the Noble Prophet that told Bushair bin Sa’ed whenhe wanted the Prophet to bear witness of gift to his son, he asked; “have you otherchildren?” he replied “yes”, “have you given them the same type of gift?” he replied“No” the Prophet said “I don’t bear unjust witness(evidence)” (Sahihul Bukhari 2456 &Muslim 3058).Question 60: If your answer to the above question is that the garden is a gift, thenwas it taken away from her possession? Or was not in her possession & she wants it to begiven to her? Because the Islamic principle of “hiba”(gift) most be under possession ofthe donee before the death of the donor, if there is no possession and the donor died thegift automatically revert back to the donor, the gift become’s void. But if it is an inheritance not a gift, he has other heirs that have right toinheritance? Have you forgotten Abbas, a paternal uncle who is a residual heir to theNoble Prophet and will exclude Ali Radiyallahu Anhu as a paternal uncle’s son under therules of exclusion? According to the jurist, the Prophets are not to be inherited by theirheirs; this is an authentic Prophetic narration. Among the narrators of this tradition areAliyu Radiyallahu Anhu, Abbas Radiyallahu Anhu and the 6 six of the 10 tencompanions that were giving glad tidings of paradise i.e. Abubakar, Umar, Uthman,Abdurrahman bn Auf, Zubayr, bn Awwam, Sa’ad bn Abi waqqas. They all narrated thatthe Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said; “we the Prophets are not been inheritableby our heirs of our properties, what we left is a (sadaqah) charity to the Muslim Ummah” We are quiet aware that Fatima Radiyallahu Anha requested for herinheritance from Abubakar Radiyallahu Anhu because she was not aware of the abovetradition . It is not something wrong: Abubakar Radiyallahu Anhu denied her share of herinheritance because her father the Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam denied her. Healso did nothing wrong, it was narrated and reported of her unhappy situation of that.Was it not explained to her or was she not convinced with the explanation? We the Sunnifeels she has an excuse for her action but what Abubakar did was right and not wrong.What you claim of her action toward him in the market, whom are you trying to disgrace,dishonor and refer as a bastard? Even if Fati food seller in the motor park will not fightwith Market authority and go free with her honor and dignity? Have you forgotten thatAbubakar is the intimate friend of her father since childhood? Is he not the first person 36
  37. 37. outside his households that embrace the Religion and affirm the trustworthiness of theProphet Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam was he not his friend and escort during migration toMadinah? Is he not his in-law, the father of his wife? But with all these, FatimaRadiyallahu Anhu will disgrace him in the market? In the book of “Bidayah wan Nihayah” by ibn Kathir, it was reportedthat Abubakar Radiyallahu Anhu went home to make her understand the situationbecause of how he noticed her bad feelings, with the permission of her husband, heentered her room and apologized to her, she responded accepting the apology. He handedover the garden to Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu and Abbas Radiyallahu Anhu to oversee itsactivities, as them been the closest to the Prophet family as overseers not as an inheritableproperty.Question 61: What then was the story of this garden during the reign of the threeleaders? If it was Fatima’s right (inheritance), during the time/reign of Ali RadiyallahuAnhu he should have executed the property to the real owners, i.e. himself and his issueswith her as inheritance. But nothing as such was narrated, and then what is the origin ofyour myth?Question 62: It was narrated in your books that females don’t inherit landedproperties or land in general. In the book of Al-kafi fil furu’I (7/127) there is a chaptertitled; “females are not entitle to inheriting any landed property”. He brought a narrationfrom Abu Abdullah whom was asked; “what are women/females entitled as inheritance?He replied; they are given the monetary worth of sand, building and trees but land, farmetc they have nothing to inherit”. our question is why did Fatima Radiyallahu Anha requested for a voidright? Tusi also reported this narration in “Al-Tahzib” (9/254)Question 63: In your narrations you said; “whatever belongs to a Prophet, after hisdemise has become the property of an (Imam) leader. It was narrated in “Al-Kafi” kitabulhujja (1/476) why did Fatima also claim Imam’s property? Abubakar was the Imam, youwill respond in the negative, then why didn’t Aliyu Radiyallahu Anhu claim and requestfor his property? 37
