16. During her lifetime Hadhrath Aysha was a severe critic of Hadhrath Uthman, to the point that she advocated his killing . How is it that following his slaying she chose to rebel against Imam Ali (as) on the premise that his killers should be apprehended? Why did she leave Makkah, portray Hadhrath Uthman as a victim and mobilise oppostion from Basrah. Was this decision based on her desire to defend Hadhrath Uthman or was it motivated by her animosity towards Imam Ali (as)?
Answer: This narration is not authentic. There are weak narrators in its Isnaad e.g. Saif ibn Umar and Nasr ibn Muzahim and the scholar have declared their narrations weak.

17. If failing to believe in Hadhrath Ayesha is an act of Kufr what opinion should we hold with regards to her killer? Hadhrath Ayesha was killed by Mu'awiya (Tarikh al Islam, by Najeeb Abadi, Vol 2 p 44)
Answer: First of all, what is written there is Marwan , not Muawiya (may Allah be pleased with him). One more time Answering-Ansar's lies exposed. [For more , visit www.aaunveiled.wordpress.com] Secondly, if you can read , you will see that it is written down at the end of page , that this narration of Marwan killing Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) is not correct and is not proven from authentic sanad.
18. It is commonly conveyed that the Sahaba were brave, generous, knowledgeable and spent their time worshipping Allah (swt). If we want to
determine their bravery, then let us delve in to history, how many kaffir’s did the prominent Sahaba Hadhrath Umar slay during the battles of Badr,
Uhud, Khunduq, Khayber and Hunain? How many polytheists did he kill during his own Khilafath? If we wish to determine who is firm against the
unbelievers it cannot be that individual who refused to go the Kaffir’s prior to the treaty of Hudaiybiya on the grounds that he had no friends and
instead suggested Hadhrath Uthman go on account of he relationship to the Ummayah clan – against the obligation placed on him by a direct command of
the Holy Prophet.
Answer: How many did Salman or AbuDhar kill? How many did Miqdad or Ibn Abbas kill? Daft question! According to shia beliefs, Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) didn't work under the army of the 3 caliphs. But we know that the 3 caliphs defeated the super powers of their times , i.e Persia and Rome to which even shias testify. Why quarreling over how many men they killed, why ignore the super powers they defeated with an army lesser armed than the present Taliban of Afghanistan without the presence of Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) in their army as per your beliefs? If today, Taliban defeats America and Russia without the help of any foreign army, wouldn't you call that person an idiot who will still say that Taliban are cowards? If it still doesn't show that the sahaba were brave , than we recommend the shias to get admission in mad hospital. Muslims defeated Rome and Persia, two super powers of their times, and conquered Palestine for the first time under the leadership of Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) and this is more than enough to show that he was a very brave person and the sahaba in general were very brave people. And this is a historical fact, how much shias deny, that the victories of Muslims came to a halt under the leadership of Ali (may Allah be pleased with him). In short, if it is not narrated how many enemies a person has killed in a war, it doesn't mean that he has not even killed any enemy in the war. And if this is the case, than let the shias tell us how many enemies Ali, Salman, Abu Dhar , Miqdad , Ibn Abbas, and other people whom they respect, killed in each war. And if they can't show the exact figures, which indeed they can't, because no one except Allah and they themselves know how many enemies were killed at their hands, so if the figure is lesser , than will it mean only those number of people were killed at their hands? Indeed no. So it is proven that it is not necessary that it must be in history books that how much people they killed or otherwise they would not have killed anyone. Those wars were extremely tough wars, because the enemies of Muslims were much larger in number than the muslims , and only presence in such wars was a matter of huge courage. Not like the 18000 shias who broke their pledge of allegiance to Hussain (may Allah be pleased with him) and fled, running from an enemy which was more than 4 times lesser than they, i.e only 4000 men of Ibn Ziyad.
19. The Saha Sittah has traditions in which the Holy Prophet (saaws) foretold the coming of twelve khalifa's after him(1). Who are they? We assert that these are the twelve Imams from the Ahlul'bayt. Mulla Ali Qari whilst setting out the Hanafi interpretation of this hadith lists Yazid ibn Mu'awiya as the sixth Khalifa?(2) Was the Holy Prophet (saaws) really referring to such a man? When we also have a hadith that states 'He who dies without giving bayah to an Imam dies the death of one belonging to the days of jahiliyya'(3) then it is imperative that we identify and determine who these twelve khalifa's are. 1. "The affairs of the people will continue to be conducted as long as they are governed by 12 men, he then added from Quraish" (taken from Sahih Muslim, hadith number 4483, English translation by Abdul Hamid Siddiqui) 2. Sharh Fiqa Akbar, by Mulla Ali Qari, p 175 (publishers Muhummud Saeed and son, Qur'an Muhall, Karachi) 3. ibid, page 175
Answer: Various scholars have furthered their own guesses as to who the twelve Caliphs must be, but these guesses cannot be taken with absolute certainty, and due to this fact, any contradiction in various lists is not a sign of weakness but rather it is a natural result of a doctrinal view that forbids speaking with certainty on such matters. Therefore, no scholar would say that these are definitely without a doubt the twelve Caliphs, but rather he will speculate as to whom he thinks it may refer to.
20. Can anyone change Allah (swt) laws? Then why did Hadhrath Umar introduce Tarawih prayers in congregation, 4 takbirs for funeral prayers, 3
Talaq’s in one sitting and ban Mutah? What right did he have to substitute Allah (swt)’s orders in favour of his own?
Your claims are totally wrong.
Volume 8, Book 73, Number 134:
Narrated Zaid bin Thabit:
Allah's Apostle made a small room (with a palm leaf mat). Allah's Apostle came out (of his house) and prayed in it. Some men came and joined him in his prayer. Then again the next night they came for the prayer, but Allah's Apostle delayed and did not come out to them. So they raised their voices and knocked the door with small stones (to draw his attention). He came out to them in a state of anger, saying, "You are still insisting (on your deed, i.e. Tarawih prayer in the mosque) that I thought that this prayer (Tarawih) might become obligatory on you. So you people, offer this prayer at your homes, for the best prayer of a person is the one which he offers at home, except the compulsory (congregational) prayer."
Volume 9, Book 92, Number 393:
Narrated Zaid bin Thabit:
The Prophet took a room made of date palm leaves mats in the mosque. Allah's Apostle prayed in it for a few nights till the people gathered (to pray the night prayer (Tarawih) (behind him.) Then on the 4th night the people did not hear his voice and they thought he had slept, so some of them started humming in order that he might come out. The Prophet then said, "You continued doing what I saw you doing till I was afraid that this (Tarawih prayer) might be enjoined on you, and if it were enjoined on you, you would not continue performing it. Therefore, O people! Perform your prayers at your homes, for the best prayer of a person is what is performed at his home except the compulsory congregational) prayer." (See Hadith No. 229,Vol. 3) (See Hadith No. 134, Vol. 8)
Sahih Bukhari , Volume 5, Book 59, Number 527:
Narrated 'Ali bin Abi Talib:
On the day of Khaibar, Allah's Apostle forbade the Mut'a (i.e. temporary marriage) and the eating of donkey-meat"
In shia texts
Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) said : Prophet (peace be upon him) prohibited from mutah.
(Al Istibsar 3/142)
Bukhari , Volume 2, Book 23, Number 337:
Narrated Abu Huraira,
Allah's Apostle informed (the people) about the death of An-Najashi on the very day he died. He went towards the Musalla (praying place) and the people stood behind him in rows. He said four Takbirs (i.e. offered the Funeral prayer).
Proven from your own authentic books
Ilalul Sharaie by Shaikh Sadooq:
The Prophet (peace be upon him) used to say five takbeer on some people and four takbeer on some people.
Its another thing that afterwards it says that four takbeer were for hypocrites, the thing is it is proven from your books that the Prophet (peace be upon him) also did this, so it was a part of sunnah as proven from your books. In our view, the hypocrites were mentioned in this narration just to put some spice because the Shias know that Sunnis say four takbeer in the funeral. And we know that Shias like to add such spice in their beliefs to present its beliefs as more 'tasty' and to show their grudge towards the Sunnis.
The Islamic Shari`ah has given clear directive regarding the permanent separation of a married couple. However, the Holy Qur'an has left the matter of dealing with the matter of breaching the clear directive regarding divorce and the consequences of such boldness. The Holy Prophet (pbuh) would decide such matters keeping in consideration the intent of the offender after properly investigating the matter. He is reported to have decided either to take the triple talaaq as single divorce or in some other cases, deprive the offender of his right to reunite with his spouse. Absence of any regular legislation leaves the Islamic state with the right to pass a legislation keeping the general cases before it. This is what happened during the rule of the second caliph.
We should also read what Imam Khomeini has to say. The late Imam Khomeini, one of the most influential leaders of the Shia of our time says in one of his speeches that governance is the most important of all divine ordinances and it takes precedence over secondary divine ordinances. Not only does the Islamic state permissibly enforce a large number of laws not mentioned specifically in the sources of the Shari'ah, such as the prohibition of narcotics and the levying of customs dues; it can also suspend the performance of a fundamental religious duty, the hajj, when this is necessitated by the higher interest of the Muslims.
