Shia clinging to weak narrations in Sunni Books but claiming their 1122 tawatur hadiths on Corruption of Quran are weak thus zero

The way of the Shia is to cling to any random weak narration and make it an undisputed historical fact if it happens to agree with their beliefs and if it supports their case against the companions of the Prophet (SAWS). However, if a narration is quoted against them, you will see them researching and citing sources and studying the authenticity and the text and trying to give various interpretations in order to defend their Madhab.

Their scholar Murtada al-`Askari is no different than all his other companions when it comes to hypocrisy, this man wanted to defend the Shia religion because they were being accused of believing in the corruption of the Qur’an. Their books are fully loaded with narrations about how the Qur’an was altered and changed by the companions of the Prophet (SAWS), and how the virtues of Ahlul-Bayt were deleted from it and such…

Shia scholar al-`Allamah Muhammad Salih al-Mazindarani says in “Sharh al-Kafi” 11/76:

[The deletion of some parts of the Qur’an and its corruption was established in our sources with Tawatur, as it is apparent for those who observe the books of Hadith from beginning to end.]

Shia scholar Sultan Muhammad al-Janabidhi says in “Tafsir Bayan al-Sa`adah fi Maqamat al-`Ibadah” pg.19:

[Know (O reader) that a plentiful amount of narrations from the pure Imams state that additions and deletions and corruption and change have taken place in it, in a way that leaves no doubt.]

Shia scholar Muhammad al-Lucknawi wrote in “Darbat Haydari” 2/78:

[The claim that no corruption took place in the Qur’an is apparently corrupt, because the narrations showing this corruption have reached Tawatur.]

Shia scholar `Abdullah Shubbar said in “Masabih al-Anwar fi Hall Mushkilat al-Akhbar” 2/294-295:

[Most of what is in our hands today is the Qur’an that was revealed upon the Prophet (as) and many parts of it have been removed, as proven by the great amount of narrations that are almost Mutawatir, and we have clarified this in our book: Muniyah al-Muhasileen fi Haqiyat Tareeq al-Mujtahideen.]

Shia scholar Muhammad Mahdi al-Naraqi said in “Minhaj al-Ahkam” under the chapter “Hujjiyat Zawahir al-Kitab”:

[Deletion has taken place in the Qur’an, meaning: Parts of it have been removed, even if we do not know specifically where it is, as shown by the many un-contradicted narrations and proofs.]

The Shia belief that narrations reaching Tawatur from the Imams state that the Qur’an was corrupted, this belief has been reported by many Shia scholars that we cannot mention now so that we do not go off-topic, one of their scholars called al-Noori al-Tabrasi has collected a huge amount of these narrations, their scholar Muhammad Hadi Ma`rifah wrote in “Siyanat al-Qur’an” pg.239:

[What al-Noori had collected from narrations of corruption, are more than a thousand and one hundred (1122) to be exact.]

Now we return to Murtada al-`Askari who wanted to defend his Madhab from the accusation of corruption, wrote a three volume set called “al-Qur’an wa Riwayat al-Madrasatayn”, in the third volume which is 847 pages, he went through 1062 narrations of corruption and rejected all of them, by weakening their chain of transmission or by giving them a suitable interpretation, he then said at the end of his book:

[al-Sheikh al-Noori and Ihsan Ilahi Zaheer have quoted 1062 narrations which they claimed prove the corruption of the Qur’an, and by the favor of Allah we have studied them one by one, their chains and their texts, and we found that all of them share one of two things:

Either their chains contain extremists or liars or unknown or weak narrators, or the text is only an explanation for the verse as opposed to their claim that it was erased from it, and at many times both.]

And finally he declares on page 874, that all those narrations are “zero” and they amount to nothing at all!

I say: First of all, if this hypocrite were to apply his methods of weakening narrations, to all the Shia books of Hadith, then their entire library of books would become one big zero, not one narration would be left!
