    Sahih hadiths - the 12 Caliphs

    Well,

    it was interesting reading through the posts on licking fingers and all. Let's try something a bit more intellectually stimulating now:

    From the Sahih books, the following hadiths can be found:

    In Sahih al-Bukhari (Arabic-English version), the tradition is as follows:

    Sahih al-Bukhari Hadith: 9.329

    Narrated Jabir Ibn Samura:

    I heard the Prophet saying, "There will be twelve commanders (Amir)." He then said a sentence which I did not hear. My father said, the Prophet added, "All of them will be from Quraish."


    In Musnad Ahmad, the tradition is as follows:

    The Prophet (PBUH&HF) said: "There shall be twelve Caliphs

    for this community, all of them from Quraish

    Reference: Musnad Ahmad Ibn Hanbal, v5, p106

    In Sahih Muslim, the traditions are as follows:

    Narrated Jabir Ibn Samura:

    The Prophet (PBUH&HF) said: "The matter (life) will not end, until it is passed by twelve Caliphs." He then whispered a sentence. I asked my father what the Prophet said. He said, the Prophet added: "All of them will be from Quraish.

    Sunni references:

    - Sahih Muslim, Arabic version, Kitab al-Imaara, 1980 Edition Pub. in Saudi Arabia, v3, p1452, Tradition #5

    - Sahih Muslim, English version, Chapter DCCLIV (titled: The People are subservient to the Quraish and the Caliphate is the Right of the Quraish), v3, p1009, Tradition #4477


    Again from Sahih Muslim:

    The Prophet (PBUH&HF) said: "The affairs of people will continue to be conducted (well) as long as they are governed by the twelve men."

    Sunni references:

    - Sahih Muslim, Arabic version, Kitab al-Imaara, 1980 Edition Pub. in Saudi Arabia, v3, p1453, Tradition #6

    - Sahih Muslim, English version, Chapter DCCLIV (titled: The People are subservient to the Quraish and the Caliphate is the Right of the Quraish), v3, p1010, Tradition #4478


    Also:

    The Prophet (PBUH&HF) said: "Islam will continue to be triumphant until there have been twelve Caliphs.

    Sunni references:

    - Sahih Muslim, Arabic version, Kitab al-Imaara, 1980 Edition Pub. in Saudi Arabia, v3, p1453, Tradition #7

    - Sahih Muslim, English version, Chapter DCCLIV (titled: The People are subservient to the Quraish and the Caliphate is the Right of the Quraish), v3, p1010, Tradition #4480

    With so many narrations in the sahihs regarding these 12 caliphs - who will rule until the end of time, I think we can spend atleast as much time on this as we have on whether you should lick yr fingers or not.

    Who were these 12 caliphs ?

      I'm sure you can list out some names. Any takers ? Their rule must span till the end of time.

        You should realise that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) has given guidance in regards to every single aspect of human life, from birth right to death. His sunnah is the best sunnah to be followed.

        If your 'intellect' is not stimulated by his narrations the surely your are one lost individual.

          A question for you:

          If their rule must span till the end of time, are you saying that Ali bin Abi Talib - may Allah be pleased with him, whome you attribute to being the first of your 12, do you say that his rule will span till the end of time?

          Know that Allah the almighty will rule to the end of time.

            Alpha,

            Firstly, I'm not saying anything, the hadith is. Its from yr multiple sahih books.

            And to clarify; the affairs of the people will be conducted under the rulership of these 12 caliphs; i.e during the time span that Allah (swt) gives them to rule.

            So who are these 12 caliphs. Muslim, Bukhari, and Hanbal have noted this hadith so its authenticity must be atleast as good as the hadith posted earlier showing how a woman can give her milk to an adult to make him mehram.

            You can start with Abu Baker. Not a problem. I just want yr opinion on who the other 11 are. Since the world is still in existence, the 12th caliph must be present - so who is he ?

              Then give me the narration that states that the 12th Imam will be present from the time the 11th passed away until the day of judgement? Some tens of hundred of years until now, and only Allah know when Judgement will come.

              Remember:

              Al-Baqarah (2):107

              Know you not that it is Allâh to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth? And besides Allâh you have neither any Walî (protector or guardian) nor any helper.

                Alpha,

                I can bombard you with my beliefs but thats not the purpose of this thread.

                I would simply like to know the position that ahl-sunnat take on this hadith. It has been recorded in your sahih books. And once again, I am quoting verbatim from yr sunni books.

                You have a position on every other thing so I'm sure there's one here.

                Let's not digress. Just post yr understanding of this hadith if you have one. If you don't have one, fair enough - but dare we attempt to find out ?

                  So that I may hold an understanding of this Hadeeth, may I please have its reference?

                  Note I ask you for the second time again.

                        Ibrahim says: salaams to all,

                        One must be careful when Brother a1shah posts/quotes hadiths or Qur’an verses, in my experience certain parts always seems to go missing or get altered


                        BTW our brother forgot to post this two hadiths also from the same person ( meaning all of this are actually ONLY ONE HADITH ORIGINATING FROM THE SAME PERSON . which gave a CLEARER picture of the same hadiths


                        Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4266 Narrated by Jabir ibn Samurah

                        The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: The religion will continue to be established till there are twelve caliphs over you, and the whole community will agree on each of them. I then heard from the Prophet (peace be upon him) some remarks which I could not understand. I asked my father: What is he saying: He said: all of them will belong to Quraysh.

                        Another hadith our brother omitted was :-

                        Sahih Muslim Hadith Hadith 4483 Narrated by Jabir ibn Samurah

                        It has been narrated on the authority of Amir ibn Sa'd ibn AbuWaqqas who said: I wrote (a letter) to Jabir ibn Samurah and sent it to him through my servant, Nafi', asking him to inform me of something he had heard from the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him). He wrote to me (in reply): I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) say on Friday, the day on which al-Aslami was stoned to death (for committing adultery): The Islamic religion will continue until the Hour has been established, or you have been ruled by twelve Caliphs, all of them being from the Quraysh. I also heard him say: A small force of the Muslims will capture the white palace, the palace of the Persian Emperor or his descendants. I also heard him say: Before the Day of Judgment there will appear (a number of) imposters. You are to guard against them. I also heard him say: When God grants wealth to any one of you, he should first spend it on himself and his family (and then give it in charity to the poor). I heard him (also) say: I shall be your forerunner at the Cistern (expecting your arrival).

                        NOW TO COMPARE WHAT A1SHAH posted with what actually appears in those books.

                        Originally posted by a1shah:

                        Now check out the original rendering:-

                        Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith Hadith 9.329 Narrated by Jabir bin Samura

                        I heard the Prophet saying, "There will be twelve Muslim rulers (who will rule all the Islamic world)." He then said a sentence which I did not hear. My father said, "All of them (those rulers) will be from Quraish."


                        a1shah wrote: - Sahih Muslim, English version, Chapter DCCLIV Tradition #4477

                        The Prophet (PBUH&HF) said: "The matter (life) will not end, until it is passed by twelve Caliphs." He then whispered a sentence. I asked my father what the Prophet said. He said, the Prophet added: "All of them will be from Quraish.
                        NOW COMPARE!

                        Sahih Muslim Hadith Hadith 4477 Narrated by Jabir bin Samura

                        I joined company of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) with my father and I heard him say: This caliphate will not end until there have been twelve caliphs among them. The narrator said : Then he (the holy Prophet) said something that I could not follow I said to my father : what did he say? He said : all of them will be from the Quraish


                        a1shah wrote: - Sahih Muslim, English version, Chapter DCCLIV , Tradition #4478

                        NOW COMPARE with the Original.

                        Sahih Muslim hadith hadith 4478 Narrated by Jabir bin Samura

                        I heard the messenger of Allah (pbuh) say: The affairs of the people will continue to be conducted (well) as long as they are governed by twelve man . Then Holy Prophet (pbuh) said words which were obscure to me. I asked my father : what did the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) say? He said All of them will be from Quraish.



                        A1shah: With so many narrations in the sahihs regarding these 12 caliphs - who will rule until the end of time, I think we can spend at least as much time on this as we have on whether you should lick yr fingers or not.


                        Ibrahim says: LOL!! all of them are originating from the same person so IT IS ONLY ONE HADITH but have been reported through many people

                          Mr Shah

                          Firstly, by your standards from your earlier posts, and from those posts of other Rafida/Isna Ashariya, you have ridiculed Sahih Bukhari as a compilation of fabrications. You have slandered its compiler the Imam Bukhari (ra) as a lier, and you have slandered the narraters who narrate the Hadith as liars also.

                          Using the intellect u often much talk about, what then is the reason of you mentioning this hadeeth? If I hate every the BIBLE says for example, as it contains Shirk, why then would I use it as a basis of my beliefs?

                          In other words, you cling to Bukhari when it suits your desires, alot like the 'fatwah shopping' that a brother mentioned in another thread.

                          You are trying to convince us that the 12 Imams mentioned in this one hadeeth are the tweleve imams of the Ithna Ashariya. Using your own reasoning this argument falls flat on its face.

                          I have yet to look at this narration properly and read how the companions of Allah's Messenger understood it, but suffice it to say that it is not what you want us to believe.
                          The Shia often use the sunnah and then twist the meanings to serve their own ends.

                          An example is that of the Imam Mahdi. In the Sahih it is narrated that he will be of the Quraish, with the same name as the Messenger of Allah (i.e. Abu Kasim, Mohammed al Hashimi al Qurayishi)it is also agreed upon that he is not yet amongst us, a fact backed by all the scholars based on the authentic sunnah. The Shia esp the Ithna Ashariya state that the Imam Mahdi is their 12th Imam and is the son of the 11th Shia Imam (cant recall his name) and is hiding in a cave all these years! This despite the fact that the family of the 11th Imam deny he ever had this son!! (Evidences from Shia books to follow.)

                          The existence (fictional creation) of the elusive 12th Shia Imam thus has made it easy for the Shia "narrators" to claim that they are in touch with the 12th imam which gives them a lisence to print dubious fatwas. A bit like the soothsayers who say they are in touch with the spirits.

                            The extent some people will go to justify made up hadiths.
                            Never seizes to amaze me.
                            hmmm wondering how far you'll go "old woman" to proof this right...hmmm the funniest thing you surely accept this, but no other hadith.

                              Before I give you my opinion on this thread, can you please confirm the REAL reason why you decided to ask this question!!!


                              I more or less know the reasoning, but I would like to hear it from the 'horses mouth'.
