- Hadith of Ghadir Khumm [A Sunni Perspective]
The event of Ghadir Khumm is taken grossly out of context by our Shia brothers who use it as proof that Ali ibn Abi Talib was nominated by the Prophet to be the next Caliph. This article includes rebuttals of common Shia arguments. The truth is that the Prophet never appointed Ali to be the next Caliph, and this is a distortion of the facts.
- Hadith About Muawiyyah: “May Allah Not Fill His Belly” [A Sunni Perspective]
The Shia will look within the Hadith collection of the Ahlus Sunnah in order to prove their viewpoint. However, the Shia will oftentimes need to make use of academic deciet when they quote such Hadith. One such example can be found when they procure Hadith about Muawiyyah.
- A Comprehensive Rebuttal of Answering-Ansar’s Article on Umm Kulthoom’s Nikah
The Ansar website wrote an article proving that Ali ibn Abi Talib married his daughter off to Umar ibn al-Khattab. In response to this article, the Answering Ansar website wrote an article denying this marriage. Unfortunately, that article by Answering Ansar was very weak; this is our rebuttal to that article by Answering Ansar. This is a comprehensive rebuttal which refutes Answering Ansar’s article point by point.
- Rebuttal of Answering-Ansar’s Article “Who Killed Imam Hussain? (AS)”
This is a rebuttal of Answering-Ansar’s article entitled “Who Killed Imam Hussain? (AS)”. Answering-Ansar attempted to shift the blame away from the Shia, but this rebuttal clearly shows that there is no possible way that the Shia of Kufa can be exonerated. The Shia must acknowledge their illustrious history which involves betraying the Ahlel Bayt and leading their own Imam to his imminent death.
- Ali ibn Abi Talib Named His Sons after the Three Caliphs [includes a rebuttal of Answering-Ansar]
Ali named three of his Sons after the Three Caliphs. This fact is recorded by al-Shaykh al-Mufid in โKitab al-Irshadโ, pp. 268-269, where these three sons of Ali are listed as numbers 12, 6 and 10 respectively. Al-Shia.com itself documents how three of Ali’s sons were named Abu Bakr, Umar, and Uthman. This fact categorically rejects the Shia paradigm which is based upon the false idea that Ali disapproved of Abu Bakr, Umar, and Uthman. This article also contains a refutation of Answering-Ansar’s article on the issue of Ali’s sons.
- Abu Bakr (ุฑุถูู ุงููู ุนูู), the Second of the Two
Allah honors Abu Bakr (ุฑุถูู ุงููู ุนูู) by mentioning him in the Quran in verse 9:40, documenting how it was Abu Bakr (ุฑุถูู ุงููู ุนูู) who was present with the Prophet (ุตููู ุงููู ุนููู ูุขูู ูุณููู ) on the most historic day of Islam, in which the Prophet (ุตููู ุงููู ุนููู ูุขูู ูุณููู ) made the Hijra that would be so important that it marks the start of the Islamic calender. We examine this honor given to Abu Bakr (ุฑุถูู ุงููู ุนูู), and then respond to the feeble Shia justifications.
- Hadith About Drinking Urine in Sahih Al-Bukhari
This is a response to a certain Hadith in Sahih Al-Bukhari which is misrepresented by the Shia propagandists. It should be noted that the Shia use the same tactics as the evangelists and the “Answering-Islam” team which has dedicated itself to destroying the honor of Islam. I have seen this similar accusation on the nefarious Answering-Islam website which also twists this Hadith to “disprove” Islam. In the end, they disprove nobody save themselves and the joke is on them. As for the Shia, they should be ashamed of the company they are in, using the same old arguments as the very enemies of Islam. They will therefore be treated accordingly.
- Hadith About the Quran and Sunnah
The Shia propagandists often claim that the Hadith about the Quran and Sunnah (i.e. “I am leaving you with the Book of Allah and my Sunnah…”) is weak or even forged. This is a blatant lie; according to the standards of the Hadith scholars, the Hadith about the Quran and Sunnah is Sahih. The following is a dialogue between a Shia propagandist and Shaikh Gibril Haddad.
- Hadith al-Thaqalayn: The Two Weighty Things [A Sunni Perspective]
The Shia understanding of Hadith al-Thaqalayn is nothing short of deviancy and error; and inspite of their vociferous slogans claiming adherence to the two weighty objects, the Shia are in reality the worst and vilest deniers of the Thaqalayn. This article will help the reader to understand the true meaning behind the Hadith al-Thaqalayn as understood by the great majority of the Muslims.
- Hadith as-Safinah (of Ahlel Bayt being like Noah’s Ark) is a Forgery
This is a Hadith commonly used by the Shia. However, it is an inauthentic forgery.
- A Comprehensive Rebuttal of Answering-Ansar’s Article Entitled “Saqifa; the debacle of Islamic Government”
This is a comprehensive rebuttal of Answering-Ansar’s article entitled “Saqifa; the debacle of Islamic Government”. May Allah guide us to all that what is right!
- Hadith of the Twelve Caliphs [A Sunni Perspective]
The Shia propagandists have used and abused the Hadith of the twelve Caliphs and therefore we felt that a response was necessary. We hope that this response will adequately silence the Shia propagandists and will end the confusion on the Sunni side as to what the appropriate response should be. Insha-Allah from now on forwards, Sunnis can simply refer the Shia to this article when the question of the Hadith of the twelve Caliphs comes up.
- Reply to Email: Were Ali, Hasan, and Hussain Lying?
This was in response to an email query sent to us by a brother named John. We decided to make our reply public in case it should help any others as well. May Allah guide Brother John and us to Truth!
- Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah’s Love for Ahlel Bayt
One of the harshest opponents of the Shia was Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah, and because of this, some of the Shia have slandered him by claiming that he was a Nasibi (i.e. hater of Ahlel Bayt). And yet, Ibn Taymiyyah was a lover of Ahlel Bayt; not only did he love the Ahlel Bayt, but he publically declared the necessity of loving the Ahlel Bayt as a part of the creed of the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah. Let us narrate what Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah wrote in his most famous book, Al-Aqeedah Al-Wasitiyyah.
- Hadith About Aisha’s House and Satan’s Horns [A Sunni Perspective]
Despite the fact that Umm al Mu’mineen Aisha is part of the blessed Ahlel Bayt, the Shia propagandists revile her; of the many slanders they utter against her, one of their favorites is to claim that the “horns of Satan” or the “head of Satan” would emerge from Aisha’s house. This is based on their horrible misinterpretation of Sunni Hadith which they then propagate amongst the ignorant ones amongst the Sunnis. In this article, we analyze the Hadith and refute the baseless Shia accusations against our Mother Aisha.
- Response to Shia Accusation that Our Website Lied; Women Do NOT Inherit Land in Shia Hadith
We have received a few emails on this matter, and therefore we thought it appropriate to clear up the matter and refute the Shia accusations made against our website. The irony is that even when the Shia propagandists try to expose others by calling them liars, the only way they can do this is by themselves lying!
- Hadith About the (Non)Incident of the Pen and Paper [A Sunni Perspective]
The Shia propagandists make a big fuss over the so-called “incident of the pen and paper” or what they ominously refer to as “Black Thursday”. The Shia exaggerate about the Hadiths on this topic, and use them as some sort of proof against Umar ibn al-Khattab. However, the truth of the matter is that these claims are nothing but the melodramatic antics of the Ghullat gossipers who seek to make a mountain out of an anthill. In this article, we shall examine said event in an objective and reasonable manner, after which we will respond to the Shia accusations.
- Hadith al-Manzilah [A Sunni Perspective]
The Prophet said to Ali, “Will you not be pleased that you will be to me like Haroon to Musa?” The Shia use this Hadith in order to “prove” that the Prophet nominated Ali as his successor. In this article, we shall see how Hadith al-Manzilah does not at all serve as a proof for the Shia nor does it even help the Shia cause in the least, but rather the Hadith itself stands as nothing but a proof against exactly what they claim.
- Accusing the Prophet’s Wife of Murder: “Kill this old fool (Na’thal)”
The Shia propaganda rampant on the internet accuses the Prophet’s own wife of being a murderer. These Shia claim that Aisha orchestrated the murder of Uthman bin Affan, alleging that she said the words “Kill this old fool (Na’thal)”. In this article, we refute this allegation and vindicate the Prophet’s wife.
- Hadith About as-Siddeeq al-Akbar [A Sunni Perspective]
Ali ibn Abi Talib allegedly said: “I am a man of Allah, the brother of the Prophet, and the great truthful one (as-Siddeeq al-Akbar); anyone who claims this other than me is a liar, I offered Salah seven years before anyone else in this Ummah prayed.” However, this narration attributed to Ali is Mawdoo (fabricated).
- Hadith About the City of Knowledge and Ali is its Gate [A Sunni Perspective]
In reference to the following Hadith: “I am the city of knowledge and Ali is its gate”, it is a forgery.
- Response to Rayat’s Article Entitled “Imam Ali’s Sons”
In this article, we refute the arguments raised by “Rayat”. Even those who have not read his article will benefit from this article, because we raise a lot of new points that were not mentioned in our previous article about how Ali ibn Abi Talib named his sons after the first Three Caliphs. Not only this, but we see how it was the Sunnah of the Imams of Ahlel Bayt (not just Ali) to name their children after the first Three Caliphs.
- Hadith About the Prophet Contemplating Suicide
The Shia bring up this particular Hadith in Sunni books in order to attack the Ahlus Sunnah. In this article, we understand the Sunni perspective and refute the allegations levied by the Shia. This article may also be beneficial to those Muslims who wish to refute the non-Muslim polemicists who use similar arguments as the Shia.
- Hadith About No Sword Except Dhul-Fiqar [A Sunni Perspective]
In reference to the narration: โThere is no sword except Dhul-Fiqar, and there is no brave youth except Aliโ, it should be known that it is not authentic.
- Hadith About Dying With Hatred Towards Ali [A Sunni Perspective]
In regards to the following narration: “Whoever died and in his soul was hate towards Ali, died like a Jew or Christian”, it should be known that it is not authentic.
- Hadith About Shias Being Best of Creation [A Sunni Perspective]
In regards to the narration: “You and your shias are the best of creation”, it should be known that it is not authentic.
- Reply to an Email
Due to the fact that we get too many emails and we have limited time, we usually do not respond to such emails. However, a dear Sunni friend requested that this email be replied to and so we decided to deal with it.
