Blatant lie on shia major website
« on: June 28, 2020, 12:06:54 AM »

So there is a a question answer session now on the shia major website, in which leading shia scholars answer the questions of people. A person raised question, "Is it stated in Shia Books that Abu Bakr accompanied the Prophet SAW in the migration from Makkah to Madina and was with him in the cave of Thawr?"

To this question, the shia cleric, Sayyed Mohammad al-Musawi , the head of World Ahlul Bayt Islamic League in London, says:

"We do not have any authentic evidence neither in our books nor in Sunni books that Abu Bakr accompanied the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) in his migration from Makkah to Madina. On the contrary, we have in authentic Sunni books that Abu Bakr was not with the Prophet during that journey as you can see in Al-Bidayah Wal Nihayah by Ibn Katheer narrating from Ibn Jareer al-Tabari. (Al-Bidayah Wal Nihayah , Vol 3, Page 219)  and also Al-Seerah al-Nabawiyyah by Ibn Katheer , V. 2 , Page 236)."

Interestingly, this answer has been passed by two other shia scholars as well.

This is a very bad answer. Even the extremist Sayid Sadiq Shirazi admits in his book "The Prophet Muhammad, a Mercy to the World' that "On his way out of Mecca, Abu Bakr came across the Prophet as he was leaving the city, and asked the Prophet where he was going at that time. The Prophet Muhammad could not tell him other than the truth, and thereafter the Messenger of Allah asked him to join him on his migration to Medina, in order to keep the news of this mission secret until he was out of danger."

Although taqiyyah could have been practiced in this place if the Prophet (S) didn't want Abu Bakr to go with him. But perhaps he disliked taqiyyah alot and told the truth to Abu Bakr even though he 'didn't want to'. A more serious question arises here, the Prophet (S) had always travelled with a companion, but in this situation, the Shias want to claim that the Prophet (S) wanted to go alone. This is even against the many Shia narrations according to which their imams forbade to travel alone.
According to a shia narration, the Prophet (s) said:

شر الناس من سافر وحده
The worst person is one who travels alone.

Mustadrak al-wasail, MIrza Nuri, vol. 11, p. 375
al-Urwatil Wuthqa, Sayid Yazdi, Vol. 4, p. 331
Jami Ahadith al-Shia, Sayid Barujurdi, Vol. 16, p. 488

Why would the Prophet (S) travel alone if he forbade others to travel alone?
