Foundation and Laws of The True Religion Shia Imamia Ithna Ashari Rafzi
Jaffery Akhbari are based On Saqlain Tradition (Hadees-e-Saqlain)
leaving amongst you two most valuable things- one is Allah's book and the other
is my Progeny (Itrat, Ahlebait). These two will never separate from each
other. Such that will meet me at Houz-e-Kausar (fountain of Kausar).
Whichever person bonds himself to these two will definitely attain
salvation and whichever person distances himself from these two will
definitely be ruined. Till you are bound with these two you will never
ever go astray.
to be safe from going astray and being disgraced, it is essential to
practice on Quran and Ahlebait (AS). Neither by saying 'Hasbona Kitaballah'
(only Quran is sufficient) can leave Ahlebait (AS) nor can add Intellect (Aql)
and Ijma (Consensus) to these two.
are the words uttered by a pious and Infallible mouth. Mysteries are
hidden in this single word "Saqlain". If the creator of words
& their meaning, The 14 infallibles (AS) have not explained Saqlain
then the mystery would have remained as such. It would have remained
hidden even after being apparent. If u want to see then
is beyond human understanding and conception, this is the proof of
Prophecy (Nabuwat), Risalath and Imamath. Miracle whether by words or
actions, is an order of Allah. Nabis, Rasools, Imams are the means through
which it is performed.
this vast and literal explanation, these conclusions came into fore are
became evident that manifestation of miracle was done by Allah through the
sayings and actions of the last Apostle of Allah. When the miracle is an
order of Allah, it is obligatory for Muslims to act upon it. This was the
reason that the Prophet (SW) said that whoever rejects Saqlain will
definitely go astray and will become contemptible and be ruined.
Greatness of Saqlain
Mute Quran (Quran-e-Saamith) – The verifier of
Prophet (SW) said
3. There was no verifier of Quran.
4. The Supreme and homogenous creature (fellow being) and witness was not there.
Talking Quran (Quran-e-Natiq) – In the house of Allah when in the arms
of Prophet (SW) the infinite’s perfect image (La Mahdood ka
Mazhar-e-uttam) came then
explain the greatness of Ali-e-Wali (AS), Prophet (SW) said
Imamia Ithna Ashari Akhbari believe in equation of 14 Masoomeen (AS) whose
proof is this tradition of Prophet (SW) –
Event of 18th Zilhij, 10th Hijri
23 years of work and preaching Namaz, Roza, Haj, Zaqat, Khums, Jihad, etc.
orders came but Allah never changed his tone and never offered security to
protect from wickedness of evil people. This shows that the most difficult
deed is accepting Ali Ibne Abi Talib’s (AS) succession.
at the ground of Ghadeer-e-khum amongst 1.25lakh gathering Prophet (SW)
lifted Ali-e-Wali (AS) on his hands and announced
the Tafseer of ‘majma ul bayan ‘ Imam Mohammed Baquer (AS) and Imam
Jaffer-e-Sadiq (AS) said that while returning from his last Haj, when
Prophet (SW) at Ghadeer-e-khum, appointed Hazrat Ali (AS), in front of all
the people present, as the leader and guide for guidance of all the people
at that moment this Ayat descended after which no other command would be
‘Kaafi’ Imam Mohammed Baquer (AS) said that one after the other
commandments descended, Wilayat was the last order after which this Ayat
(SW) after announcing his succession gave a long sermon ,two main points of
which are to be presented keeping in view today’s times so that Momeneen
can act upon them.
prayer of Prophet (SW) is for those who adhere to the right practices and
is a curse for those who deviate from the right practices, this prayer
will hold on till Qayamat (the Judgement Day). Now if anyone wants to be
safe from the curse and wrath of Allah then it’s obligatory for him to
love Ali Ibne Abi Talib (AS) and his Shias, should curse those who are
enemies of Ali (AS) and deny Ali’s (AS) rights.
Note: The basic difference between Shia Imamia Ithna Ashari Akhbari sect
and Usooli sect is issuance of fatwe by Usoolis using own intellect, based
on ones own opinion, which is bidath (deviation from the true faith). Such
that, all Mujtahadeen of Usooli sect has taken a unanimous decision that
the third Shahdath of Kalema is not an integral part of Azaan and Aqama.
Refer Tauzihul Masael, Ayatullah al khoi, page 167, Ayatullah imam
khomeini, page 146, Ayatullah syed mohammed raza al gul payegani, page
158, Ayatullah mohammed ali araki, page 176, Ayatullah syed ali hussaini
seestani, page 148, and ambassador of Iran for India Dr.Behnaam ‘Isme kithab Mecca ke qatl-e-aam ki chashm deedh
gawahi’ page 10. The above mujtahadeens have published the matter which
has ruined Shiism to a great extent.
accordance with the fatwe of all Shia scholars, reading of this line (Ash
hado Anna Ali an Wali Ullah) in Azaan is not obligatory and if someone
includes this line as an obligation and compulsory in Azaan then his Azaan
and Namaz both will be void and useless. This has been included in Azaan
only as token (Tabarruk)----(Mazallah).
aqai syed mohsin hakim taba tabai in ‘Minahajul Saleheen’, page 203
has written that it is mustahib (which carries neither any reward nor
wrath) to complete shahadat-e-Touheed and Risalath by agreeing to Ali Ibne
Abi Talib’s (AS) Wilayat and he being leader (Amirul Momineen) of all
Akhbari is one who is follower, friend and supporter of Ali (AS). So let
us discuss keeping in mind Usooli sect’s Ayatullah mohsin al hakim’s
reasoning. He said that completing Shahadath-e-Tauheed and Risalath by
Shahadath-e-Ali (AS) is mustahib. Now the question that arises here is
completing Shahadath-e-Tauheed and Risalath is mustahib or wajib
(compulsory)? If it is compulsory then Shahadath-e-Ali an Waliullah (AS)
is also mandatory. And when Tauheed and Risalath remains incomplete
without Shahadath-e-Ali an Waliullah (AS) then Azaan will also be
incomplete. Think upon how this mustahib is for which Allah is telling
on Inclusion of Ali an Waliullah in Azaan and Aqama during the times of
Shia Imamia Ithna Ashari Akhbari sect Masoom’s saying (qoul-e-masoom),
Masoom’s actions and practices (Fael-e-masoom) and Masoom’s Taqreer
(the act done wherein masoom did not condemn or oppose) is proof, law and
reason to act upon.
Sheikh Abdullah Maraghi Misri writes in his book ‘Al Salfa Fi Amr
Al Khilafa’ – Hazrath Salman-e-Farsi (RA) was reciting Ali an Wali
Ullah in Azaan and Aqama, hearing which, one person told Prophet (SW) that
Salman has taken Wilayat-e-Ali’s Shahadath after two Shahadaths. Prophet
(SW) replied what you heard from Salman was Khair (correct, good)
In the same book the above mentioned author also wrote that one day
one person told Prophet (SW) that Abazar (RA) after taking
Shahadath-e-Rasool (SW) says Ash hado anna Ali an Wali Ullah. Prophet (SW)
replied what you heard is the fact. Have you forgotten my announcement at
Ghadeer-e-Khum when I had declared Ali’s (AS) succession.
result of our reasonable talk is that among the objects of announcement at
Ghadeer one of the important purpose was the inclusion of Ali an Wali
Ullah in Azaan and Aqama. In accordance with
Name of book – Awwaleen Muazzin-e-Islam, Hazrath Bilaal. Written
by Sayeed Ain Abedi translated by Aziz ul Hasan Jaffery published by
Nasher Abbas book agency, dargah hazrath Abbas, Rustom Nagar, Lucknow –
3. Page 4. It is written that Azaan’s kalemaath and fusool are arranged
according to intellect. Firstly, Allah’s jalalath and kibreaii
mentioned, then witness to His oneness, then witness to Prophet’s (SW)
Risalath, then Wilayat’s admission. This announcement and admission is
taken from Ahde Risalath. This is neither bidath (deviation from the true
faith) nor ekhteraa (Invention).
that one top scholar belonging to Sunni sect Abul laes Harwi writes in his
book ‘Riyazul Saadeqeen’ that – during Prophet’s (SW) lifetime, in
between 6 or 9 months this kalema was used in Azaan for five times. But,
rafzis meddled and used these kalemath in every Azaan and Aqama. Actually
they don’t know this order was cancelled. Prominent elders and sahaaba
never used these words. During their reign if anybody dared to use this
kalemath then hazrath umer used to punish him hard.
is clear from the above that during Prophet’s (SW) times this Kalema was
taken in Azaan, during the period of 6 to 9 months, if only for five
times. If this was not an integral part of Azaan then it was obligatory on
Prophet (SW) to say so and prohibit/stop anyone using it as such.
