It Takes More Courage to Repent than to Keep on Sinning

Abu Dharr

Rabi' al-Thani 16, 14422020-12-01

In his insightful discussion on the question of Hadith literature, Abu Dharr offers further food for thought and reflection. It is not meant for the ignorant but for those with a thinking mind.


When It Comes to Hadith, It is Unfortunate Common Sense isn’t More Common

Abu Dharr

Dhu al-Hijjah 11, 14412020-08-01

Muslims must sharpen their critical thinking and look very carefully at what passes for hadith. Not everything attributed to the noble messenger (pbuh) may be correct because some vested interests in early Islamic history needed to furbish their credentials through forgeries.


Some Information about the Hadiths You may have Not Known

Abu Dharr

Dhu al-Qa'dah 10, 14412020-07-01

Muslims must carefully examine the origin of Hadith literature and consider whether some vested interests have deliberately manipulated these to suit their own agenda. It is important to sift the genuine hadith from fake ones, using the Qur’an as standard.


What the Prophet (P) Said versus What We are Told He Said

Abu Dharr

Ramadan 08, 14412020-05-01

Some Muslims have elevated hadiths to the same level as the Qur’an and even more than the Qur’an (nastaghfirullah). It is time to sift the hadith literature to distinguish the genuine hadith from those that cannot be fully verified. Abu Dharr embarks on this arduous task.

Occasional Paper

Imam Ja'far As-Sadiq (a) Part II [Lecture 11]

Hamid Algar

Rajab 29, 14222001-10-16

Last time looked at Imam Jaffer al-Sadiq [AS] the sixth of the twelve Holy Imams [AS]. His accomplishments in general and then with particular regards to the development of Shi’ism. Broke off with the consideration of the doctrine of Nass – the insistence that each Imam [AS] must have been nominated by his predecessor – in a witnessed nomination and preferably set down in writing. This process was retrospectively claimed by Imam Jaffer al-Sadiq [AS] to have occurred with each of the Imams [AS], and if in the case of Imam Ali [AS] the First Imam [AS] this had not occurred then it is because of the denial of the request of the Prophet [sAW] on his deathbed that writing implements be brought forth in his presence. It may be assumed or it is assumed by Shi’i authors for him to dictate once again his intentions for Ali [AS] to succeed him as the Imam [AS].
