al-Husayn (RA) refused help in Karbala (from al-Kafi)
« on: September 18, 2014, 11:43:35 AM »
عدة من أصحابنا، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن علي بن الحكم، عن سيف بن عميره، عن عبدالملك بن أعين، عن أبي جعفر (عليه السلام) قال: لما نزل النصر على الحسين بن علي حتى كان بين السماء والارض ثم خير: النصر أو لقاء الله، فاختار لقاء الله.

Some of our companions, from Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Isa, from 'Ali bin al-Hakam, from Sayf bin 'Umayra, from Abd al-Malik bin Ayun, from Abu Ja'far (alayhi as-salam) who said: When help was sent down to al-Husayn bin 'Ali and it had reached between the heavens and the earth - he had a choice between help or meeting Allah (SWT). So he chose to meet Allah (SWT).

It's amazing how many weird ahadith there are in al-Kafi. This hadith does appear to be weak - Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Isa apparently narrated many weird narrations from weak narrators.

However, the fact that is in al-Kafi just goes to show what a confused man al-Kulaini must have been.

Basically he could've won, but he decided to lose and die for our sins.


Anyone who reads the biggest history books will realize how detached from reality most Shia Hadith are.
عَلامَةُ أَهْلِ الْبِدَعِ الْوَقِيعَةُ فِي أَهْلِ الأَثَرِ. وَعَلامَةُ الْجَهْمِيَّةِ أَنْ يُسَمُّوا أَهْلَ السُّنَّةِ مُشَبِّهَةً. وَعَلامَةُ الْقَدَرِيَّةِ أَنْ يُسَمُّوا أَهْلَ السُّنَّةِ مُجَبِّرَةً. وَعَلامَةُ الزَّنَادِقَةِ أَنْ يُسَمُّوا أَهْلَ الأَثَرِ حَشْوِيَّةً

Religion = simple & clear
