The title "MAWLA" and "Wali" for Hazrat Ali ul Murtaza(RA)

The Mutawatir/Sahih Hadith of Mawla Ali (RA)

As Salamu Alaykum to all Muslims and “As-salamu ala man ittiba al-huda” to our dear Salafi / Ghayr Muqalid friends.

As we experienced from the thread “Returning of the Sun for Sayyidna Ali (ra)” that Ibn Taymiyyah kept extreme Bughz for Ahlul Bayt and went to extremes in order to reject Sahih/Hasan hadiths, but this time It will be made absolutely clear that he not only rejected authentic hadiths but rather also “MUTAWATIR ONES”

This time another Wahabi leading authority i.e. Ibn Hazm al Andalusi shall be refuted along with Ibn Taymiyyah. Ibn Hazm belonged to Dhahiri/literalist school and was also in favor of Music which he tried to prove with hook and crook methods even by rejecting Sahih hadith of Bukhari.

Let us first of all look at the beautiful hadith both in Ikhtisar and full form. (Both the wordings that contain word Mawla and also word Wali are authentic)

Hadith # 1

حدثنا محمد بن بشار حدثنا محمد بن جعفر حدثنا شعبة عن سلمة بن كهيل قال سمعت أبا الطفيل يحدث عن ابي سريحة أو زيد بن أرقم شك شعبة Y عن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم قال من كنت مولاه فعلي مولاه

قال أبو عيسى هذا حديث حسن صحيح
وقد روى شعبة هذا الحديث عن ميمون أبي عبد الله عن زيد بن أرقم عن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم
و أبو سريحة هو حذيفة بن أسيد الغفاري صاحب النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم K صحيح
Translation: Abu Sarihah (R.A) or Zayd ibn Arqam (Shu’bah is uncertain about narrator) reported that the Prophet (Peace be upon him) said, “For Whosoever I am Mawla then Ali is his Mawla”.

Imam Abu Isa Tirmidhi (rah) said: This Hadith is “HASAN SAHIH (FAIR AND CORRECT)” Shu’bah reported this hadith form Maymun Abu Abdullah form Zayd ibn Arqam, from the Prophet (Peace be upon him) the like of it. Abu Sarihah is Hudhayfah ibn Asid al-Ghifari, a companion of the Prophet (Peace be upon him).

Prophet left behind himself Qur'an and Ahlul Bayt
Even Ahmed Shakir the Wahabi authority had to accept the authenticity of this hadith and he declared it Sahih in his Tahqiq of Sunnan Tirmidhi [Sunnan Tirmidhi with Tehqeeq of Ahmed Shakir (5/633), Hadith # 3713, Dar ul Ihya li-Tirath al Arabi, Beirut, Lebanon]

Imam al-Hakim (rah) also narrated multiple hadiths via the route of Zaid bin Arqam (RA) “WITHOUT THE DOUBT OF SHU’BAH WHICH IMAM TIRMIDHI MENTIONS” I will show one as an example

حدّثنا أبو الحسين محمد بن أحمد بن تميم الحنظلي ببغداد ، ثنا أبو قلابة عبد الملك بن محمد الرقاشي ، ثنا يحيى بن حماد : وحدّثني أبو بكر محمد بن أحمد بن بالويه ، وأبو بكر أحمد بن جعفر البزار قالا: ثنا عبد الله بن أحمد بن حنبل ، حدّثني أبي، ثنا يحيى بن حماد : وثنا أبو نصر أحمد بن سهل الفقيه ببخارى ، ثنا صالح بن محمد الحافظ البغدادي ، ثنا خلف بن سالم المخرمي ، ثنا يحيى بن حماد ، ثنا أبو عوانة ، عن سليمان الأعمش قال: ثنا حبيب بن أبي ثابت ، عن أبي الطفيل ، عن زيد بن أرقم رضي الله عنه قال:

لما رجع رسول الله من حجة الوداع، ونزل غديرخم أمر بدوحات فقممن فقال: «كَأَني قَدْ دُعِيتُ فَأَجَبْتُ إِنّي قَدْ تَرَكْتُ فيكُم الثّقْلَيْنِ أَحَدُهُما أَكْبَرُ مِنَ الآخَرِ كتابَ الله تَعالى وَعتْرَتي فانْظُروا كَيْفَ تَخْلفوني فيهِما فَإِنَّهُما لَنْ يَتَفَرَّقا حَتّى يَرِدا عَلي الحَوْضَ»، ثم قال: «إِنَّ الله عَزَّ وَجَلَّ مَوْلايَ وَأَنا مَوْلى كُلِّ مُؤْمِنٍ»، ثُم أخذ بيد علي رضي الله عنه، فقال: «مَنْ كُنْتُ مَوْلاهُ فَهذا وَلِيّهُ اللَّهُمَّ والِ مَنْ والاهُ وَعادِ مَنْ عاداهُ» وذكر الحديث

هذا حديث صحيح على شرط الشيخين ولم يخرجاه بطوله. وشاهده حديث سلمة بن كهيل عن أبي الطفيل أيضاً صحيح على شرطهما.
Translation: It is narrated by Zayd bin Arqam (رضي الله عنه): When Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) was returning after the Hajjat-ul-wada‘, he stayed at Ghadīr Khum. He commanded that a canopy should be put up and so it was done..
Qur'an and Ahlul Bayt will be at Fount Kauther
...Then he said: It seems as if I am about to breathe my last which I shall accept. Indeed, I am leaving two important things in your midst which exceed each other in importance: One (is) Allah’s Book and the other (is) my progeny. Now it is to be seen how do you treat both of them after me and they will not be separated from each other, and they will appear before me at the Fountain of kawthar. Then added: Surely Allāh is my Master and I am the master of every believer. Then, holding ‘Alī’s hand, he said: One who has me as his master has this (‘Alī) as his guardian. O Allah! Befriend him who befriends him (‘Alī) and be the enemy of one who is his enemy.”

Imam al-Hakim (rah) after narrating it said: This hadith is “SAHIH ON THE CRITERIA OF BUKHARI AND MUSLIM” but they have not narrated it in detail. The hadith of Salma bin Kuhail from Abi at-Tufayl is similar and Shahid upon it, plus It is also Sahih according to their Criteria [Mustadrak al Hakim, Hadith # 4626, Dar al Kutb al iLmiyyah edition (1990), Beirut, Lebanon]

Imam al-Dhahabi (rah) “AGREED” with Imam al-Hakim [Refer to Talkhees of al-Dhahabi]

This hadith is also narrated by the following

1. Imam Ahmad bin Hambal in Fadhail-us-sahaba (2/569 # 959);

2. Imam at-Tabarani in al-Mu‘jam-ul-kabeer (5/195, 204 # 5071, 5096);

3. Ibn Abi ‘Asim in his as-Sunnah (Page #: 603, 604 # 1361, 1363, 1364, 1367, 1370);

4. Sheikh ul Islam an-Nawawī, Tahdhīb-ul-asma wal-lughat (Page # 318);

5. Ibn ‘Asakir in Tarikh al Damishq (45/163, 164);

6. Ibn Athīr, Asad-ul-ghabah fi ma‘rifat-is-sahaba (6/132);

7. Ibn Kathīr, al-Bidayah wan-nihayah (5:463);

8. al-Asqalani in Ta‘jil-ul-manfa‘ah (Page # 464 # 1222).
And Many others!  

Martyrdom of Imam Nasai (Rahimuhullah)
Hadith # 2

Ibn Abbas (ra) narrated a hadith with different chain in Mustadrak al-Hakim which has the wording:

«مَنْ كُنْتُ مَوْلاهُ فَعَلِيٌّ مَوْلاهُ
Translation: For whosoever I am Mawla then Ali is his Mawla [Mustadrak al Hakim, Hadith # 4628]

Imam al-Hakim said after narrating it:

هذا حديث صحيح على شرط مسلم ولم يخرجاه
Translation: This hadith is Sahih on the critera of Sahih Muslim but he has not narrated it [ibid]

Imam Nur-ud-din Haythami (rah) has narrated about 30 hadiths on this wording and after narrating one hadith from Ibn Abbas (ra) he said:

رواه البزار في أثناء حديث ورجاله ثقات.
Translation: Al-Bazaah narrated it in Asna Hadith and the “RIJAAL OF THIS HADITH ARE ALL THIQA” [Majma uz Zawaid, Hadith # 14362]

The Hadith has already become Ghayr Wahid (multiply narrated with Sahih Isnad/Matn) and soon you will know that It is Mutawatir

Hadith # 3

Before I show the next 10 hadiths from Imam Nasai’i (Rahimuhullah) I would like to mention how this great Imam of Sahih compilation got martyred. Many Sunnis are unaware how Hadrat Imam Nasai’I (rah) died, some people like Wahabis hide his martyrdom incident due to rivalry with Shi’ites whereas we as true Ahlus Sunnah have nothing to hide and we firmly believe in greatness of Ameer Muawiya (ra) even though Imam Nasai’i’s reply to Khawarij in regards to Ameer Muawiya became the reason for his martyrdom.

Imam Nasai’I the author of most authentic book after Bukhari and Muslim, the top notch Muhadith of Islam to the extent that some have considered him more cautious in narrating hadiths even more cautious than Imam Muslim (rah) and on par or even above than Imam Bukhari (rah)..
on Martyrdom of Imam Nasai'i He will always be known for his true love of Ahlul Bayt because he wrote a whole book on merits of Sayyidna Ali (ra) but refused to write it on merits of Ameer Muawiya (RA) due to which he was brutally martyred by the Khawarij of that time. The reason for not writing a book on Ameer Muawiya was that Ameer Muawiya did not have that many merits as compared to Mawla Ali (ra). The wording used by Imam Nasai’I is strict but is cunningly misused by Shi’ites.

Let us now see the statement of Imam Nasai’i which got him martyred.

رَوَى أَبُو عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنُ مَنْدَةَ، عَنْ حَمْزَةَ الْعَقَبِيِّ الْمِصْرِيِّ وَغَيْرِهِ، أَنَّ النَّسَائِيَّ خَرَجَ مِنْ مِصْرَ فِي آخِرِ عُمْرِهِ إِلَى دِمَشْقَ، فَسُئِلَ بِهَا عَنْ مُعَاوِيَةَ، وَمَا جَاءَ فِي فَضَائِلِهِ، فَقَالَ: لا يَرْضَى رَأْسًا بِرَأْسٍ حَتَّى يُفَضَّلَ؟ قَالَ: فَمَا زَالُوا يَدْفَعُونَ فِي حِضْنَيْهِ حَتَّى أُخْرِجَ مِنَ الْمَسْجِدِ، ثُمَّ حُمِلَ إِلَى مَكَّةَ فَتُوُفِّيَ بِهَا..
Translation: Abu Abdullah bin Mandah (rah) narrates from Hamza al-Basri and others that When Imam Nasai’i went to Damascus from Egypt during the last part of his life, the people there asked him to narrate (hadiths) in merits of Hadrat Muawiya (RA), at this Imam Nasai’i (rah) replied:

Is it not enough for Muawiya (RA) that he goes as he is let alone narrating his merits.

Hearing it, the people there (who were pro Yazidi) started “TO HIT HIM IN HIS PRIVATE PARTS (NAUDHOBILLAH)”
and kept on hitting him till they brought him out of the Mosque. Imam Nasai’i (rah) said: Make me reach Makkah tul Muqaramah, and in this same Year of 303 AH you died due to this (Inna Lillahi Wa inna iLaihi Rajiun) [al-Dhahabi in Siyar A’lam an Nubala (11/197) and also Ibn Kathir in al-Bidayah wan Nihayah (12/11)]
The Proofs that this hadith is "MUTAWATIR"
I would not make any further comments on why Imam Nasai’i made such a statement about Ameer Muawiya (ra) and I keep Husn al-Dhan with him but we should all see how the Yazid lovers treated the great Muhadith of Islam, those rascals started to hit the great Imam in his private parts (Naudhobillah).

He has narrated the hadith of Ali (ra) being Mawla and Wali with 10 different routes and thus It now become absolutely certain that this hadith is “MUTAWATIR” and rejecting this hadith is an Azeem rather Qabeeh blunder made by likes of Ibn Taymiyyah and Ibn Hazm.

Imam Nasai’i made a whole chapter with title :

باب قول النبي من كنت وليه فعلي وليهTranslation: The chapter in regards to Prophet sayind: For Whosoever I am Wali then Ali is his Wali. [Note: This part has been specially called a Lie by Ibn Taymiyyah Kazaab whereas Imam Nasai made a whole chapter on it]

أخبرنا محمد بن المثنى قال حدثني يحيى بن حماد قال حدثنا أبو عوانة عن سليمان قال حدثنا حبيب بن أبي ثابت عن أبي الطفيل عن زيد بن أرقم قال لما رجع رسول الله عن حجة الوداع ونزل غدير خم أمر بدوحات فقممن ثم قال كأني قد دعيت فأجبت و إني قد تركت فيكم الثقلين أحدهما أكبر من الآخر كتاب الله وعترتي أهل بيتي فأنظروا كيف تخلفوني فيهما فإنهما لن يتفرقا حتى يردا على الحوض ثم قال إن الله مولاي وأنا ولي كل مؤمن ثم أخذ بيد علي فقال من كنت وليه فهذا وليه اللهم وال من والاه وعاد من عاداه فقلت لزيد سمعته من رسول الله فقال ما كان في الدوحات أحد إلا رآه بعينيه وسمعه بأذنيه

Hadith # 9


أخبرنا محمد بن يحيى بن عبد الله النيسابوري وأحمد بن عثمان بن حكيم الأودي قالا حدثنا عبيد الله بن موسى قال أخبرني هانىء بن أيوب عن طلحة الأيامي قال حدثنا عميرة بن سعد أنه سمع عليا وهو ينشد في الرحبة من سمع رسول الله يقول من كنت مولاه فعلي مولاه فقام بضعة عشر فشهدوا

Hadith # 10

أخبرنا محمد بن المثنى قال حدثنا محمد قال حدثنا شعبة عن أبي إسحاق قال سمعت سعيد بن وهب قال لما ناشدهم علي قام خمسة أو ستة من أصحاب النبي فشهدوا أن رسول الله قال من كنت مولاه فعلي مولاه
Hadith # 11أخبرنا علي بن محمد بن علي قاضي المصيصة قال حدثنا خلف قال حدثنا إسرائيل عن أبي إسحاق قال حدثنا سعيد بن وهب
نه قام مما يليه ستة وقال زيد بن يثيع وقام ممن يليني ستة فشهدوا أنهم سمعوا رسول الله يقول من كنت مولاه فإن عليا مولاه
Hadith # 12أخبرنا أبو داود قال حدثنا عمران بن أبان قال حدثنا شريك قال حدثنا أبو إسحاق عن زيد بن يثيع قال سمعت علي بن أبي طالب يقول على منبر الكوفة إني منشد الله رجلا ولا أنشد إلا أصحاب محمد من سمع رسول الله يقول يوم غدير خم من كنت مولاه فعلي مولاه اللهم وال من والاه وعاد من عاداه فقام ستة من جانب المنبر وستة من الجانب الآخر فشهدوا أنهم سمعوا رسول الله يقول ذلك قال شريك فقلت لأبي إسحاق هل سمعت البراء بن عازب يحدث بهذا عن رسول الله قال نعم قال أبو عبد الرحمن عمران بن أبان ليس بقوي في الحديث

Imam Nasai’i has narrated these hadiths from at least 12 companions in this chapter, so rather than giving authentication of these hadiths one by one, let us look at the Qawl of Imam Ibn Hajr al-Asqalani (rah)

جمع مناقبه من الأحاديث الجياد النسائي في كتاب «الخصائص» وأما حديث «من كنت مولاه فعليٌّ مولاه » فقد أخرجه الترمذي والنسائي، وهو كثير الطرق جداً، وقد استوعبها ابن عقدة في كتاب مفرد، وكثير من أسانيدها صحاح وحسانTranslation: On the Merits of (Sayyidna Ali) Imam Nasai’i has compiled many strong hadiths in his books “Al-Khasais” and as for the hadith “Man Kunto Mawla fa-Aliun Mawla” then It is narrated by Imam Tirmidhi (rah) and Imam Nasai’i and It has “TOO MANY ROUTES THROUGH WHICH IT IS NARRATED” Imam Ibn Aqda collected them in a separate book and many of these chains as “SAHIH AND HASAN” [Fath ul Bari, (7/437)]

Imam al-Dhahabi (rah) who was student of Ibn Taymiyyah, even he accepted this hadith to be Sahih and Matn to be “MUTAWATIR”

هذا حديث حسن عال جدا، ومتنه فمتواتر

Translation: This hadith is "Hasan of highest standard and “THE MATN OF IT IS MUTAWATIR”
Testimony from 30 Sahaba!
[Siyar A’lam an Nubala (7/571)]

At another place he said:

وَقَدْ جَمَعْتُ طُرُقَ حَدِيثِ الطَّيْرِ فِي جُزْءٍ، وَطُرُقَ حَدِيثِ: " مَنْ كُنْتُ مَوْلاهُ " وَهُوَ أَصَحُّ

Translation: I have collected the Asaneed of hadith of at-Teer and also Asaneed of hadith “Man kunto Mawla” and It is “SAHIH” [Siyar A’lam an Nubala (13/101)]

And at another place he narrated a saying of one great scholar:

وَقَدْ خَابَ وَخَسِرَ مَنْ لَمْ يَكُنْ عَلِيٌّ مَوْلاهُ

Translation: And Indeed he is failed and dusted who “DOES NOT HAVE ALI AS HIS MAWLA” [Siyar A’lam an Nubala (10/655)]

What bigger proofs does one need to realize that Ibn Taymiyyah catered Bughz for Ahlul Bayt especially Sayyidna Ali (ra), even his students proved this hadith to be Mutawatir whereas Ibn Taymiyyah just in opposition of Shi’ites tried to prove ti Da’eef + Fabrication (Naudhobillah)

I would like to conclude this article with this following Hadith and also saying of chief innovator of Wahabis i.e. Nasir ud-din Albani who indirectly refuted Ibn Taymiyyah completely on the science of hadith.

حدّثنا عبدالله حدَّثني أبي حدثنا حسين بن محمد و أبو نعيم المعني قالا: حدثنا مطر عن أبي الطفيل قال: «جمع علي رضي الله تعالى عنه الناس في الرحبة ثم قال لهم: أنشد الله كل امرىء مسلم سمع رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلّم يقول: يوم غدير خم ما سمع لما قام؟ فقام ثلاثون من الناس، وقال أبو نعيم: فقام ناس كثير فشهدوا حين أخذه بيده فقال للناس: أتعلمون أني أولى بالمؤمنين من أنفسهم؟ قالوا: نعم، يا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلّم قال: من كنت مولاه فهذا مولاه اللهم وال من والاه وعاد من عاداه؟ قال: فخرجت وكأن في نفسي شيئاً، فلقيت زيد بن أرقم فقلت له: إني سمعت علياً رضي الله تعالى عنه يقول: كذا وكذا؟ قال: فما تنكر؟ قد سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلّم يقول: ذلك له». 
Authentication of al-Haythami & Shu'ayb Ar'anoot
Translation: Abu Tufayl (RA) has narrated that ‘Alī (RA) gathered the people in an open place and said to them: I make every Muslim swear and ask him if he has heard the Prophet (Peace be upon him) say something (about me) on the day of Ghadir Khum, he should stand up. At this, thirty persons stood up — while Abu Nu‘aym said that a larger number of people stood up — and they bore witness that (we remember that time) when the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) said to the people while holding your hand: Do you know that I am nearer than the lives of the believers? All of them said: yes, O Messenger of Allāh! Then he said: one who has me as his master has this (‘Alī) as his master. O Allāh! Befriend him who befriends him (‘Alī) and be his enemy who is his (‘Alī’s) enemy. The narrator says that when I came out I had some doubt. In the meantime, I met Zayd bin Arqam (RA) and told him that I had heard ‘Alī (RA) say this. At this Zayd bin Arqam (RA) said: how can you deny while I have myself heard the Messenger (SAW) say this about ‘Alī (RA)?”

Sheikh Shu’ayb Ar’anoot in Tehqeeq of Musnad Ahmed said:

إسناده صحيح رجاله ثقات رجال الشيخين غير فطر بن خليفة فمن رجال أصحاب السنن وروى له البخاري مقروناTranslation: The Isnad of this report is “SAHIH” and the Rijaal are all “THIQA AND RIJAL OF BUKHARI + MUSLIM” except for Fatr bin Khalifa who is amongst Rijaal of Sunnan and Imam Bukhari (rah) narrated from him in Maqrunan form [Musnad Ahmed bin Hanbal with Tehqeeq of Shuayb al-Ar’anoot (4/370), Hadith # 19321]

Imam Nur ud-din al-Haythami (rah) said in Majma uz Zawaid:

رواه البزار وأحمد ورجاله رجال الصحيح غير فطر بن خليفة وهو ثقة

Translation: This is narrated by al-Bazzar (rah) and Ahmed (rah) and the Rijal of this report “ARE THOSE OF SAHIH” except Fatr bin Khalifa “WHO IS THIQA” [Majma uz Zawaid (9/104)] 
Albani proving Ibn Taymiyyah "HASTY"
Even Nasir ud-din Albani had to accept this and other others reports regarding Mawla and Wali as “SAHIH” [Refer to Silsilat Ahadith as-Sahihha, Hadith # 1751]
In some authentic reports it also mentions testimony from Sayyidna Umar (ra) who congratulated Sayyidna Ali (ra) that this day “YOU HAVE EVEN BECOME MY MAWLA” ..Subhan Allah wa Allah hu Akbar!

Nasir ud-din Albani exposes Ibn Taymiyyah’s ignorance in hadith methodology

أنني رأيت شيخ الإسلام بن تيمية , قد ضعف الشطر الأول من الحديث , و أما
الشطر الآخر , فزعم أنه كذب! و هذا من مبالغته الناتجة في تقديري من تسرعه
في تضعيف الأحاديث قبل أن يجمع طرقها و يدقق النظر فيها
Translation: When I saw Sheikh ul Islam Ibn Taymiyah considering the Hadith (For whosoever I am Mawla then Ali is his Mawla) as weak/doubtful in its first half and “LIE IN ITS SECOND” then I had to write in length over this issue. In my viewpoint, the reason behind such exaggeration (of Ibn Taymiyah) was that he used to be hasty in deciding the inauthenticity of some Hadiths before seeing them properly [Silsilat ul Ahadith as-Sahiha, Volume No.4, Page No. 344]

Refer to the same book Manhaaj as-Sunnah is where Ibn Taymiyyah made such blunders [refer to (4/256-257)]

What Albani forgot to mention was that rejecting Mutawatir hadiths is on par with rejecting a verse of Qur’an, so It is blunder upon blunder by Ibn Taymiyyah to reject Sahih/Mutawatir/Hasan hadiths in relation to Sayyidna Ali (ra) and he does this often not only in regards to the hadith mentioned above. 
Sayyidna Ali is Mawla of all including Umar Farooq
In some authentic reports It is narrated that even Sayyidna Umar bin Khattab (ra) congratulated after the incident of Ghadir Khum that today "YOU HAVE BECOME EVEN MY MAWLA" ... ALLAH HU AKBAR!

Insha’Allah Muslim Ummah shall benefit from this article and can always refute the Khawarij of today through it.
