Forexample, Bukhaarinarrated in his sahih, from `Imran ibn Hittan (akhariji).
6- Why do Sunnis narrate most of the traditions through the chainof AbuHurayra? It is said that the number of traditions narrated byAbu Hurayraare about 5,374, while Abu Hurayra didn't accompanythe Holy Prophet(s.w.) except in the last two years of the HolyProphet's lifetime - afteraccepting Islam.
As for Imam Ali (a.s.), who accompanied the Holy Prophet (s.w.)sincehis childhood until the Holy Prophet (s.w.) died between hishands, thereare only 537 traditions narrated from him (a.s.) inSunnis books.
This isso, while Imam Ali (a.s.) delivered the mostremarkable orations andsayings especially during the time whichhe ruled over the Muslimummah, which lasted less than five years.
And in this five years heexplained to the Muslims every minute ruleand regulation in the Islamicshari`ah and the prophetic sunnah.
None of these orations and sayingshas been mentioned in thesahih of al-Baukhari or Muslim.
7- Didn't the Holy Prophet (s.w.) say, "I am the city of knowledge,and Aliis its gate"; "I am the house of wisdom and Ali is its gate";"Ali is withtruth and truth is with Ali", etc.
Are these not clearproofs that show thehigh rank of Imam Ali (a.s.)?8- Weren't Ali (a.s.), Fatima (a.s.) and their sons al-Hasan andal-Husayn(a.s.) the people about whom the verse of "tatheer" and"mubahala" hadbeen revealed?9- What is the meaning of "loving the Household of the HolyProphet(a.s.)"? Their love can be verified by two means, first:speaking andmentioning their virtues in gatherings of those withtrue faith, andsecond: adhering to them by word and act, as theHoly Prophet (s.w.)had said, "if you adhered to them, you won't bemisguided at all.
" Canone love the Aalul Bayt (a.s.) only by wordsinstead of heart?10- Is it logical that the Muslims follow any individual, even ifthatindividual was like Mu`awiyah who was known for his enmityagainstAalul Bayt (a.s.)? Can't we consider this following as anopen enmityagainst the Aalul Bayt (a.s.) and the Holy Quran?The Holy Quran had clearly mentioned that loving the Aalul Bayt(a.s.) isthe cause of receiving a great reward; thus, is it right tofollow anyfabricated hadith or to call the Muslims to followindividuals likeMu`awiyah who is not infallible.
