#1

:assalam: ,


May Allah shower His peace and blessings on all of you. I have seen many misconceptions of the Shia on this forum. As a practising Shia I would like to make clear our beliefs. Feel free to ask any questions about us I will not be offended.

What do you say about Abu Bakr and Umar?

Good question. I plan on only replying strictly to the premises of the question. Since this is a sensitive topic I appeal to others to leave their emotions aside.



Regarding Abu Bakr and Umar ibn alKhattab the Shia consider them as fallible human beings who are not above criticism. It wouldnt be an understatement to say that in general there is a great deal of resentment towards some of the actions these two personalities are alleged to have done.


This strictly is then the answer to the question. I have avoided going into details of why, successorship etc etc because that was not part of the question. If anyone wants to know more simply ask.

The Shia believe that the Quran is complete and free from any Tahreef or distortion. As the Quran testifies itself



Surely We have revealed the Reminder and We will most surely be its guardian (15:9)


No falsehood can approach it from before or behind it: It is sent down by One Full of Wisdom, Worthy of all Praise." Al-Quran 41:42


I could quote 100s of Statements and Fatawa given by our Ulema (because every single one of them believes in the completeness of the Quran) but I will suffice with 2. 1 early and 1 contemporary.


"Our belief is that the Quran which Allah revealed to His Prophet


Muhammad is (the same as) the one between the two covers (daffatayn).


And it is the one which is in the hands of the people, and is not


greater in extent than that. The number of surahs as generally


accepted is one hundred and fourteen ...And he who asserts that we say


that it is greater in extent than that, is a liar."


Shi'i reference: Shi'ite Creed (al-I'tiqadat al-Imamiyyah), by Shaykh


Saduq, English version, p77. (cited in al-islam.org)


"From the time of the Prophet (peace be upon him and his family) until today, not one word of the Qur'an has been


edited, altered, added, omitted, lost, distorted, or otherwise changed."


(Invitation to Islam by Syed Moustafa al-Qazwini Published by: Islamic Educational Center of Orange County, California cited in al-islam.org)

Pls allow me to welcome you Karabla to our board, Insh aAllah I feel that your membership will enrich the board and allow us a dialogue with a real Shia to have real answers that you will asked about before Allah.


I have other questions, but let me sit and watch for now as my brothers are making their inquiries in order to allow u time and chance.
