Qualities of Imams described in Al Kafi The famous Hadith Book of Shia

Posted by answersforshiafriend on September 19, 2009

Usool al- Kafi that is a collection narrations and traditions attributed to the Shiite Imams, Ahlul Bayt and the Prophet. Al-Kafi is the MOST reliable Shia Book, as the reliable Shia Scholars said and declared . Its author is Thiqat al-Islam Muhamad Ibn Yaqoob AlKulayni (A VERY reliable Shia Scholar, died in 328 H). Some Shi’ites scholars believe usool Al-Kafi was presented to the legendary Imam Qaem who liked it and said: “It suffices our Shi’ites” (al-Tharee’ah ela Tasaneef al-Shi’a: Agha Buzurg al-Tahraani; vol.17, p.245)

Al-Kafi is a collection of Hadiths attributed to the prophet Muhamad p.b.u.h and The Infallible Imams -according to Shia- and like AhlSunnah, who give much importance to their Hadith book (Saheeh AlBukhari), Shia give the same or maybe even more importance to their Book (Al-Kafi) . Unlike AhlSunnah who call AlBukhari’s Book as (Saheeh AlBukhari), Shia do not call Al-Kafi as (Saheeh Al-Kafi), nevertheless, Shia treat Al-Kafi as it is (Saheeh) and their most reliable scholars declare it as a (Saheeh) .

Ironically we find Mr. Mulla Baqir Majlisi stating in his commentary on al-Kafi, named Mir’at al-‘Uqul, that 9,485 out of the 16,121 narrations in al-Kafi are unreliable! Now here we reach two conclusions, either Imam Qaem made a mistake to authenticate a book, 60% of whose contents would later be discovered to be unreliable or Mr. Mulla Baqir Majlisi (the most reliable and respected Shia Scholars ever existed) did not know what he was talking about.

Al- Kulaini recorded in his book AL-KAAFI attributes and descriptions of the twelve Imams such as would imply their elevation from the human level to that of the gods of ancient Greek pagans. To quote all such fables from AL-KAAFI and other books would require a large volume book. By way of illustration, it will suffice to list some of the quotes from AL-KAAFI:

  • he Imams posses all the knowledge granted to angels, prophets and messengers.”(Al- Kulaini. AL- KAAFI, p.255)
  • The Imams know when they will die, and they do not die except by their choice. “(Al- Kulaini. AL- KAAFI, p.258)
  • The Imaams have knowledge of whatever occurred in the past and whatever will happen in the future, and nothing is concealed from them.”
    (Al- Kulaini. AL- KAAFI, p.260)
  • The Imams have knowledge of all the revealed books, regardless of the languages in which they were revealed. “(Al- Kulaini. AL- KAAFI, p.260)
  • No one complied the Qur’ân completely except the Imams, and they encompass all of its knowledge. “(Al- Kulaini. AL- KAAFI, p.227)
  • Signs of the prophets are possessed by the Imams. “(Al- Kulaini. AL- KAAFI, p.231)
  • When the Imams’ time comes, they will rule in accordance with the ruling of the Prophet David and his dynasty. These Imams will not need to ask for presentation of evidence before passing their judgements. “(Al- Kulaini. AL- KAAFI, p.397)
  • There is not a single truth possessed by a people saved that which originated with the Imams, and everything which did not proceed from them is false. “(Al- Kulaini. AL- KAAFI, p.399)
  • All of the earth belongs to the Imams. “(Al- Kulaini. AL- KAAFI, p.407)
