Bidah of Umar bin Khattab vs. Sunnah of Rasool Allah (saw)

Salafies follow only Bidahs of Umar, instead of Sunnah of Rasool Allah (saw)

Yes, it is true the Salafies are only following the Bidahs of Umar in their Doctrine, instead of following the Sunnah of Rasool Allah (saw). Insha-Allah, in this chapter, we will see all these innovations.

But first let us introduce one of the most authentic Saudi backed Salafi website www.salafipublications.com. They have an article on “Tabarruk” in which they accepted the half Truth about Rasool Allah (saw) i.e. Sahaba Karam used to seek benefit from the Barakah of the relics of Rasool Allah (saw).

But they denied the remaining half, in order to defend some of the innovations of Umar, on which their whole doctrine rests.

The particulars of articles are as under:

So, let’s begin with Allah’s help.


Salafies acceptance that Sahaba used to seek benefit from the Tabarrukat of Rasool Allah (saw)
Salafipublications.com
 
The Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) is blessed in his physical body, in his characteristics and actions, and this barakah can also be brought about by his physical body, his characteristics and his actions. It is firmly established from the Companions that they used to seek blessings through certain things from his body which had separated from his body, such as his hair, or the water from the wudhoo’ or blood etc. These hadeeths have come in the two Saheehs and are authentic.
 
One wonder, why Salafies don’t issue the fatwas of Shirk against these Sahaba by using their normal objections i.e.
 
Allah is more closer than jugular vein, did they think that Allah cannot hear them?
Why didn’t they ask Allah DIRECTLY for the Barakah?
Why don’t Salafies compare the actions of Sahaba with the actions of Mushrikeen, when they sought benefit from their idols?
But Salafies have “Double Standards”. They have reserved such type of objections only for us.
Salafi Innovation of denying Barkah in those places which Rasool Allah (saw) visited or rested
 
Note: This is one of the most important Issue, and Salafies have to deny Barakah in the places, which were visited by Rasool Allah (saw) for the following 2 reasons:
 
Saving honour of Umar Ibn Khattab, who destroyed Sunnah of Rasool Allah (saw), and introduced his own misguided innovations.
And most important thing, Salafies of Saudi Arabia wanted to defend the destruction of all those sacred places, which were visited by Rasool Allah (saw).
 
Please read the following carefully, and many things will become clear to you. Insha-Allah.
Salafpublications.com
 
As for seeking barakah from the places where the Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) went, such as a place in which he stopped and rested (on a journey) or a place in which he prayed or where he placed his foot or placed his hand etc., then there is no text or evidence that has been reported which shows that the barakah of the physical essence rubbed off onto these places such that they possessed barakah of the physical essence and that tabarruk should be made through them. And for this reason, none of the Sahaabah used to do this, neither during his life nor after his life.
 
Indeed there is also Barakah in the places which Rasool Allah (saw) visited or where he rested. But Salafies have to deny it in order to hide their evil crime of destructing those sacred places.
 
Let us see what Quran says and what is Sunnah of Rasool Allah (saw) as compared to Salafi claim.
Allah says in Quran about the benefit of standing place of Ibrahim (as):

فِيهِ آيَاتٌ بَيِّـنَاتٌ مَّقَامُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَمَن دَخَلَهُ كَانَ آمِنًا وَلِلّهِ عَلَى النَّاسِ حِجُّ الْبَيْتِ مَنِ اسْتَطَاعَ إِلَيْهِ سَبِيلاً وَمَن كَفَرَ فَإِنَّ الله غَنِيٌّ عَنِ الْعَالَمِينَ

[Pickthal 3:97] Wherein are plain memorials (of Allah's guidance); the place where Abraham stood up to pray ; and whosoever entereth it is safe. And pilgrimage to the House is a duty unto Allah for mankind,
And Allah also tells in Quran about the Samari, who took benefit from the dust, from where Jibrael (as) passed away. When Samari put that mud into the idol of calf (which he made himself), that idol started speaking due to the sacred blessing of that dust. Allah tells us in quran:

إِنَّمَا إِلَهُكُمُ اللَّهُ الَّذِي لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا هُوَ وَسِعَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ عِلْمًا

[Pickthal 20:96] He (Samiri) said: I perceived what they perceive not, so I seized a handful from the footsteps of the messenger (Jibrael), and then threw it in.
 
[Note: Almost all the Ahadith of Rasool Allah (saw) tells us that this messenger was Jibrael (as). Saudi Government’s published Quran with Urdu translation and Tafseer says in the Tafseer of above mentioned verse that that sand become blessed while horse of Jibrael (as) passed over it. And when Samiri put that in idol of calf, it started speaking due to that Barakah]
 
And also when one blind Sahabi asked Rasool Allah [saww] to pray in one part of his house, so that he can take that place as place of worship and attain benefit from it’s barakah.
 
Narrated Mahmuid bin Rabi' Al-Ansari:
'Itban bin Malik used to lead his people (tribe) in prayer and was a blind man, he said to Allah's Apostle , "O Allah's Apostle! At times it is dark and flood water is flowing (in the valley) and I am blind man, so please pray at a place in my house so that I can take it as a Musalla (praying place)." So Allah's Apostle went to his house and said, "Where do you like me to pray?" 'Itban pointed to a place in his house and Allah's Apostle, offered the prayer there
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 11, Number 636
 
Note: Please also see Sahih Muslim Book 001, Number 0053 and Malik’s Muwatta book 9, Number 9.24.89
 
And also the Sahaba used to get benefit of Barakah by the house in which Rasool Allah [saww] entered.
Narrated Abu Burda: When I came to Medina. I met Abdullah bin Salam. He said, "Will you come to me so that I may serve you with sawiq (i.e. powdered barley) and dates, and let you enter a (blessed) house in 
which the Prophet entered?
 
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 58, Number 159
 
Also see the following:
Narrated Yazid bin Al 'Ubaid:
I used to accompany Salama bin Al-Akwa' and he used to pray behind the pillar which was near the place where the Quran's were kept I said, "O Abu Muslim! I see you always seeking to pray behind this pillar." He replied, "I saw Allah's Apostle always seeking to pray near that pillar."
 
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 9, Number 481
 
Narrated Ibn 'Umar:
 
The Prophet entered the Ka'ba along with Usama bin Zaid, 'Uthman bin Talha and Bilal and remained there for a long time. When they came out, I was the first man to enter the Ka'ba. I asked Bilal "Where did the Prophet pray?" Bilal replied, "Between the two front Pillars."
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 9, Number 483
 
And also Prophet Muhammad (saw) ordered his Sahaba to drink water only from that blessed Well , from where the she-camel of Salih (as) used to drink water.
 
Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:
The people landed at the land of Thamud called Al-Hijr along with Allah's Apostle and they took water from its well for drinking and kneading the dough with it as well. (When Allah's Apostle heard about it) he ordered them to pour out the water they had taken from its wells and feed the camels with the dough, and ordered them to take water from the well whence the she-camel (of Prophet Salih) used to drink.
 
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 55, Number 562
 
In fact, the merits of Madina, of prayer in Madina, of visiting the Masjid al-Nabawi, of living in Madina, of not cutting its trees, etc. are all based on the fact that the Prophet is there. The fact that it is a sanctuary (haram) and a preserve (hima) is well documented in numerous ahadith. It is even strongly recommended not to enter Madina except on foot, and many Companions, Tabi`in, and Tabi` al-Tabi`in never entered it except on foot, in respect for the Holy Presence of the Prophet.
 
Narrated Ali ibn Abu Talib:
The Prophet said: "Madina's fresh grass is not to be cut, its game is not to be driven away, and things dropped in it are to be picked up only by one who publicly announces it, and it is not permissible for any man to carry weapons in it for fighting, and it is not advisable that its trees are cut except what a man cuts for the fodder of his camel.
 
Abu Dawud, 10: 2030

Note: There is a lot more documentation of Madina being Haram حرم (Sanctuary)
The Salafi Alim also denies physical Barakah in Masjid-ul-Haram and Masjid-ul-Nabi.
Salafipublications.com
 
Firstly: The specific type of barakah in the places of worship such as Masjidul-Haram and Masjid ul-Aqsaa, then the barakah which they contain is not obtained by the physical parts of the masjid, such as the walls, the floor or the pillars etc.
 
Another Bidah by this Salafi Alim and indeed there is physical Barakah in Masjid-ul-Haram and Masjid-ul-Nabi. And physical Barakah can be sought from each and every inch of these mosques. If you go to Hajj, you will see people are touching the walls of Holy Kaaba and kissing it and praying by keeping their hands on the walls of Kaaba. Just see the image below:
 
This is only and only Double Standards and Innovations of Salafies to declare it shirk to seek barakah from Masjid-e-Nabi, while same act is done in holy Kaaba and not considered by them shirk.
 
Another important question is, how to obtain this physical Barakah from these Masajid?
 
Answer is, by showing respect to them as they are Sha’air Allah. Any physical act, which can show respect, can be performed to obtain this Barakah. For example, touching and kissing it walls, making them spots of worship, etc. Just look how Allah commanded Musa (as) to show physical respect to His sign.

إِنِّي أَنَا رَبُّكَ فَاخْلَعْ نَعْلَيْكَ إِنَّكَ بِالْوَادِ الْمُقَدَّسِ طُوًى

[Pickthal 20:12] Lo! I, even I, am thy Lord, So take off thy shoes , for lo! thou art in the holy valley of Tuwa.

A Challenge to Salafies
 
Instead of using their conjectures, it’s a challenge to Salafies to show us single Hadith, in which Rasool Allah (saw) denied Barakah in the places that he visited or where he rested.
 
How strange, the mud, from where Jibrael (as) went away, can become blessed one. But the places where Master and Mawla of Jibrael (as) [i.e. Rasool Allah (saw)] has passed or lived, it contains no Barakah?]

Bidah of Umar bin Khattab vs. Sunnah of Rasool Allah (saw)
Salafi Alim further writes about Sunnah (Bidah) of Umar:
 
Umar forbade this practice. Ma’roor bin Suwaid al-Asadi said, "I went along with Umar (from Makkah to Madinah). When we arose in the morning, Umar saw people going in a certain direction. He said, ‘Where are they going?’ and they said, ‘They are going to a mosque in which the Prophet prayed’. Umar said, "Verily the Prophet before you were destroyed because of their veneration of the places where the Prophets prayed. They used to follow the tracks of their Prophets and made them into places of worship...
 
Ibn Waddah al-Qurtubi in al-Bida, Ibn Abi Shaibah in his Musannaf with a sahih isnad
 
Salafies have to understand that Islam is not the name of following the Bidahs of Umar Ibn Khattab, but of following Sunnah of Allah and Sunnah of his Prophet (saw). So, we ask our Salafi friends to bring us even a SINGLE verse of Quran, or Single Prophetic Hadith, which prohibits respecting and places, where these Prophets passed away or rested.
 
Contrary to Umar’s conjecture, Allah himself ordered to show respect and to follow the track of such places. 
E.g.
 
Allah says follow the tracks of Hadhrat Hajrah (as) and do Tawaf between Safa and Marwa, while Umar Ibn Khattab says it is destruction of nations.
And Rasool Allah (saw) prayed in the home of blind Sahabi Utban, so that he make that spot a place of worship, while Ibn Khattab says it’s destruction of nations.
 
And Prophet (saw) forbade the Sahaba to drink water from the well of Kuffar, but ordered them to drink from the well, from where she-camel of Hadhrat Salih (as) used to drink. While Ibn Khattab says it’s destruction of nations.
 
Allah says to make the praying place of Ibrahim as our place of Salah (praying), while Ibn Khattab says it to be destruction of nations.
 
And see the following traditions
Narrated Mahmuid bin Rabi' Al-Ansari:
 
'Itban bin Malik used to lead his people (tribe) in prayer and was a blind man, he said to Allah's Apostle , "O Allah's Apostle! At times it is dark and flood water is flowing (in the valley) and I am blind man, so please pray at a place in my house so that I can take it as a Musalla (praying place)." So Allah's Apostle went to his house and said, "Where do you like me to pray?" 'Itban pointed to a place in his house and Allah's Apostle, offered the prayer there.
 
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 11, Number 636
 
Please also see Sahih Muslim Book 001, Number 0053 and Malik’s Muwatta book 9, Number 9.24.89
Now Salafies are free to issue fatwa of Shirk upon Rasool Allah (saw) and that blind Sahabi.
 
Narrated Abu Burda: When I came to Medina. I met Abdullah bin Salam. He said, "Will you come to me so that I may serve you with sawiq (i.e. powdered barley) and dates, and let you enter a (blessed) house in which the Prophet entered?
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 58, Number 159
 
Narrated Yazid bin Al 'Ubaid:
I used to accompany Salama bin Al-Akwa' and he used to pray behind the pillar which was near the place where the Quran's were kept I said, "O Abu Muslim! I see you always seeking to pray behind this pillar." He replied, "I saw Allah's Apostle always seeking to pray near that pillar."
 
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 9, Number 481
 
If Ibn Khattab is correct, then these Sahaba are the destroyed ones.
And what about Abdullah Ibn Umar? Was he also a destroyed one, when he prayed at the places, where Rasool Allah (saw) prayed?
 
Narrated Ibn 'Umar:
The Prophet entered the Ka'ba along with Usama bin Zaid, 'Uthman bin Talha and Bilal and remained there for a long time. When they came out, I was the first man to enter the Ka'ba. I asked Bilal "Where did the Prophet pray?" Bilal replied, "Between the two front Pillars."
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 9, Number 483
 
Please also see the article below, where we show how Ibn Umar followed the tracks of Rasool Allah (saw).
And why Madina was given the status of “Haram”? Why Sahaba entered it only bare footed?
 
Narrated Ali ibn Abu Talib:
The Prophet said: "Madina's fresh grass is not to be cut, its game is not to be driven away, and things dropped in it are to be picked up only by one who publicly announces it, and it is not permissible for any man to carry weapons in it for fighting, and it is not advisable that its trees are cut except what a man cuts for the fodder of his camel.
 
Abu Dawud, 10: 2030
 
Umar Ibn Khattab always thought that he got the birth right to make new innovations in Shar’ia of Islam. If we add all his innovations, then surely he becomes innovator No. 1 in Islam. (Please see our article “Bidah” in order to see some of innovations by Umar).
 
Allah prohibited only “Sajdah of Tazeem”, when it comes to “respecting the signs of Allah”. But Umar Ibn Khattab went several steps ahead of Allah, and he prohibited all that what he wished.
 
In fact, his problem was the same as Salafies have (surely Salafies inherited these misguided innovations from Umar) i.e. his mind didn’t have the ability to differentiate between “Respecting” the signs of Allah and “Worshipping” them.
 
We repeat our CHALLANGE to Salafies i.e. instead of coming up with conjectures/innovations of Umar Ibn Khattab, show us a single verse by Allah (swt), or a single hadith of Rasool Allah (saw), in which they had made it Haram and prohibited the people from doing it.

Umar Ibn Khattab vs. his son Abdullah Ibn Umar
Even Ibne Umar, the son of Umar Ibn Khattab, was not ready to accept the innovations of his father. He refused to follow many innovations of his father like in Mutta of Hajj and in Mutta of Nisa’a. And again in case of “Respecting the Sha’air Allah”, he refused to follow the innovations of his father.
 
Narrated Nafi':
Ibn 'Umar never offered the Duha prayer except on two occasions:
(1) Whenever he reached Mecca; and he always used to reach Mecca in the forenoon. He would perform Tawaf round the Ka'ba and then offer two Rakat at the rear of Maqam Ibrahim.
(2) Whenever he visited Quba, for he used to visit it every Saturday. When he entered the Mosque, he disliked to leave it without offering a prayer. Ibn 'Umar narrated that Allah's Apostle used to visit the Mosque of Quba (sometime) walking and (sometime) riding. And he (i.e. Ibn 'Umar) used to say, "I do only what my companions used to do and I don't forbid anybody to pray at any time during the day or night except that one should not intend to pray at sunrise or sunset."
 
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 2, Book 21, Number 283
 
And we read in Mughni 3:559; al-Shifa' 2:54; Ibn Sa`d, Tabaqat 1:13; Mawsu`at Fiqh `Abdullah ibn `Umar p. 52:

Ibn `Umar used to touch the seat of the Prophet's minbar and then wipe his face for blessing
Similarly, Umar also innovated when he cut the tree, under which Rasool Allah (saw) took oath of allegiance from his Shaba. This tree has also been mentioned in Quran. Sahaba Karam used to seek Barakah from this tree. But Umar ordered to cut it while his “Literal” mind was also unable to differentiate between “Respecting” and “Worshiping” the sings of Allah. [Ibn Sa`d (1:73)]
 
However Ibn `Umar didn’t follow the innovation of his father and he derived blessings even from walking in the same spots where the Prophet had walked and praying exactly where he had prayed both at the Ka`ba and on his travels, and that he watered a certain tree under which Prophet had prayed so that it would not die. Bayhaqi (Sunan 5:245)
 
Narrated Ibn 'Umar:
The Prophet entered the Ka'ba along with Usama bin Zaid, 'Uthman bin Talha and Bilal and remained there for a long time. When they came out, I was the first man to enter the Ka'ba. I asked Bilal "Where did the Prophet pray?" Bilal replied, "Between the two front Pillars."
 
Sahih Bukhari, Volume 1, Book 9, Number 483
 
Ibn Umar also didn’t follow the other innovations of his father in Mutta of Woman and in Mutta of Hajj.
Also see the next chapter about Literalism of Umar Ibn Khattab, when he denied any Barakah in Hajar-e-Aswad.
 
We hope, now it would have also been become clear to our Readers that Salafies have also to deny it in order to hide their evil crimes of destroying such sacred places (partial list of such places is coming ahead).
Umar's Literalism vs. Hajar-e-Aswad and Tehrif in this tradition by Salafies
 
Salafi Alim of www.salafipublications.com continues to write:
Salafipublications.com
 
Also from another angle, Umar when he kissed the black stone, said, "You are only a stone and I only kiss you because I saw the Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) kiss you." So this shows the perfect understanding of ‘Uma
 
In fact, it’s only a half part of the tradition, which has been narrated by Bukhari, in his Sahih, Book of Hajar. (Note: It is also a common practice of Bukhari to distort such traditions which go against Sheikhain).
In order to read in detail upon this disease of Bukahri, please read the book "Ask Those Who Know".
Ask Those Who Know, by learned Al-Tijani Al-Samawi
 
And today, this distorted version of tradition is heavily propagated by Salafies, while it goes in favour of their Aqaeed.
 
Complete tradition is like this:
 
Umar while visiting the Kaba, said before the Hajar al-aswad, "You cannot do anything! But I kiss you in order to follow Rasulullah ('alaihi 's-salam)." 'Ali (as) said upon hearing this, "Rasulullah (saw) said, 'On the Day of Judgment, the Hajar al-aswad will intercede for people.'"
 
This hadith is reported by at-Thirmidhi, an-Nasai, al-Baihaki, at-Tabarani and al-Bukhari in his History And 'Umar thanked 'Ali (as).

Also see “Al-Farooq” by Shibli Naumani, page 323, published by Maktaba Rehmania, Pakistan
Therefore, Mawla Ali (as) made it very clear that Respecting Sh'air Allah will bring us Benefits, and disrespecting them will bring harm to us. And Umar Ibn Khattab also understood this thing. But those, who are still unable to understand this even till today, they are only the so called Salafies. These people still try their best to hide this complete tradition today, and if some one still quote the whole version, then they try to negate it by making a lot of lame excuses. Before answering their lame excuses, firstly let us see the different versions of this complete tradition. Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani quoted this complete version in his book "Ganiatul 
Talibeen", in the following words:
Abu Saeed Khudri Narrated:
I went to Hajj along with Umar Ibn Khattab during initial period of his Caliphate. Umar Ibn Khattab came to mosque and stood near Hajar-e-Aswad and then addressed it with these words: "I know you are only a stone, which can neither benefit, nor harm. And had I not seen Rasool Allah (saw) kissing you, I would have never kissed you.
 
Upon this Hadhrat Ali (as) said: "Don't say so. This stone can both bring harm and benefit to you, but harm and benefit are both with the orders of Allah. Had you read what has been written in Quran and understood it, then you would have never uttered these words in front of us."
 
Umar Ibn Khattab said: "O Abul Hassan, then please you explain yourself how Quran has defined this stone?"
Hadhrat Ali replied: "When Allah (swt) created human beings from the progeny of Adam (as), that time HE made them witness over themselves and asked them if I am not your Lord? Upon this all of them confirmed that you are our creator. Thus Allah (swt) wrote this confirmation and called this stone and put this into it. And this stone will give witness on the day of judgment if people have fulfilled their promise or not.
 
Upon this Umar said: "O Abul Hassan! Allah has made your chest the treasure of knowledge."
Ghaniatul Talibeen, Abdul Qadir Jilani, Urdu Edition, page 534, published by Maktab-e-Ibrahimia, Lahore, Pakistan
Muttaqi al-Hindi also narrated this same tradition in his book "Kanzul 'Amal" in following words:

12521- عن أبي سعيد الخدري قال: حججنا مع عمر بن الخطاب، فلما دخل الطواف استقبل الحجر فقال: إني لأعلم أنك حجر لا تضر ولا تنفع، ولولا أني رأيت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقبلك ما قبلتك، ثم قبله، فقال علي بن أبي طالب: يا أمير المؤمنين إنه يضر وينفع، قال: بم؟ قال: بكتاب الله عز وجل قال: وأين ذلك من كتاب الله؟ قال: قال الله تعالى: { وإذ أخذ ربك من بني آدم من ظهورهم ذريتهم} إلى قوله: بلى، خلق الله آدم ومسح على ظهره فقررهم بأنه الرب وأنهم العبيد وأخذ عهودهم ومواثيقهم وكتب ذلك في رق (في رق: والرق بالفتح: الجلد يكتب فيه والكسر لغة قليلة فيه وقرأ بها بعضهم في قوله تعالى: "في رق منشور".انتهى.(1/321) المصباح المنير. ب) وكان لهذا الحجر عينان ولسانان فقال: افتح فاك ففتح فاه، فألقمه ذلك الرق، فقال: اشهد لمن وافاك بالموافاة يوم القيامة وإني أشهد لسمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول: يؤتى يوم القيامة بالحجر الأسود وله لسان ذلق يشهد لمن استلمه بالتوحيد فهو يا أمير المؤمنين يضر وينفع، فقال عمر: أعوذ بالله أن أعيش في قوم لست فيهم يا أبا الحسن.
Abu Saeed Narrated:
We went for Hajj with Umar Ibn Khattab. When he started doing Tawaf, he addressed Hajar-e-Aswad and said: "I know that you are only a stone which can neither benefit nor harm. Had I not seen Rasool Allah (saw) kissing you, I would have never kissed you.

Upon this Ali (ibn Abi Talib) said to Umar: "This stone can indeed benefit and harm." Umar asked him how is that. Ali (as) replied: "According to Book of Allah." Umar said to Ali (as): "Then show me too where it is written in Quran." Ali (as) said: "Allah (swt) says in Quran when he created human being from the progeny of Adam (as) and made them witness over themselves and asked them if I am not your creator? Upon this all of them confirmed it. Thus Allah wrote this confirmation. And this stone has two lips and two eyes and it opened it's mouth upon the order of Allah (swt) who put that confirmation in it and orderedto witness it to all those worshippers who come for Hajj.
 
And I have heard it from Rasool Allah (saw): "This black stone will be brought on the day of judgement and it would be give with a tongue, which will witness for those who stayed upon Tauheed and who fulfilled their duties. Therefore, this stone can benefit and also harm."
 
When Umar Ibn Khattab heard this, he said: "A'udo Billah (I seek Allah's refuge) that I have to live among people when O Abul Hassan, you are not present."
 
Kanzul 'Amal, by Muttaqi al-Hindi, fil Fadhail-e-Mecca (The number of this hadith is 12521 in "Al-Muhadith Software)
 
Abul Hassan al-Qatan in "Al-Tawalaat"
And Hakim quoted it in "Al-Mustadrak", vol. 1, page 457

Salafi Objections on this Hadith
While on one side this hadith is destroying the very base of Salafism, and on the other side it is proving that Ali Ibn Abi Talib (as) was really "Madinatul 'Ilm" (which is absolutely not accepted by Salafies, and they want to degrade Mawla Ali (as) to such a level that his preference over first 3 Khulafa cannot be established), therefore it became necessary upon them to deny this hadith by using lame excuses.
 
And the best weapon in their hands for this purpose is to start criticizing it's chain of narration, instead of looking at Matan (text). So, they did the same and their whole argument rests upon this argument that al-Dhahabi also quoted this hadith from al-Hakim, and then he criticized one narrator "Abi Haroon".

Answer 1:
Do Salafies think that Rasool Allah (saw) made his whole Ummah to indulge in a USELESS and POLYTHIESTIC act (i.e. to kiss a stone) till Qiyammah?
 
For us it has never been a question whether Mawla Ali (as) ever told this thing to Umar ibn Khattab or not, but we wonder how Umar Ibn Khattab dared to even think that Hajar-e-Aswad can neither benefit nor harm.
While there are hundreds of incidents from the life of Rasool Allah (saw), which were enough to prove that any thing, which is even single time touched by 'Awliya Allah (friends of Allah like prophets and angels), that thing becomed BLESSED.
 
In previous chapters, we have quoted many such Ahadith in detail which show that Sahaba Karam whole life sought Barakah from the Relics (Tabarukkat) of Rasool Allah (saw) e.g. his hairs, nails, saliva, sweat, water of ablution, robe etc.
 
Just remeber that hadith when 'Aisha and Isma binte Abi Bakr used to dip the robe of Rasool (saw) into water and then gave it to sick people so that they get cured.
And remember when Umm Momineen Hadhrat Umm Salama and other Sahaba of Madina used to drink that water, in which hairs of Rasool (saw) were dipped, in order to get cured from illness and against bad-eye.
And remember when Rasool Allah (saw) cured eyes of Mawla Ali (as) in Khaiber.
And also remember when Rasool Allah (saw) cured the wound of Sahabi Salama through his saliva.
Did Umar Ibn Khattab never read Quran in which it is clearly written that the Tabarukkat (relics) of Aale Musa and Aale Haroon (as) had Barakah in them and therefore Allah declared it Arch of Comfort (Tabute Sakina)
 
And remember that that clay became blessed from where Jibrael (as) passed away upon his horse. And due to blessing of that clay, the idol of cow started speaking.
And the blessing in that shirt of Hadhrat Yousuf (as), which retuned the eyeside of his father
...and many more such incidents.
 
Therefore we are wondering what Umar Ibn Khattab learnt during his whole life? Well, to be fair, Umar Ibn Khattab indeed corrected himself upon the advice of Mawla Ali (as). But we wonder more upon the Salafies of today who still believe that Hajar-e-Aswad can neither benefit nor harm, and issue fatwa of Shirk upon those Muslims who believe in Barakah of Hajar-e-Aswad.
 
Indeed Hajar-e-Aswad is among those Sh'air Allah, which has been kissed numerous times by a lot of Prophets. And that person is absolute Jahil who still believes that it cannot harm or benfit, even if he is Grand Mufti of Madina University. And look what Mawla Ali (as) has said:
 
"...Hadhrat Ali (as) said: "Don't say so, while it can harm and benefit, but all harm and benefit is according to orders of Allah..."
 
Then by Allah, this is Shia and Ahle Sunnah Aqeedah that 'Awliya Allah can indeed benefit Muslims by the permission of Allah (e.g. they can benefit Muslims through their Intercession by the permission of Allah).

Answer 2:
We know that Salafies still try to escape using unfair means, and they still deny to accept this. So, in order to close these doors too for them, we quote the following hadith:

113 - باب مَا جَاءَ فِي الْحَجَرِ الأَسْوَدِ
976 - حَدَّثَنَا قُتَيْبَةُ، عَنْ جَرِيرٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ خُثَيْمٍ، عَنْ سَعِيدِ بْنِ جُبَيْرٍ، عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فِي الْحَجَرِ ‏"‏ وَاللَّهِ لَيَبْعَثَنَّهُ اللَّهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ لَهُ عَيْنَانِ يُبْصِرُ بِهِمَا وَلِسَانٌ يَنْطِقُ بِهِ يَشْهَدُ عَلَى مَنِ اسْتَلَمَهُ بِحَقٍّ ‏" قَالَ اَبُو عِيسَى هَذَا حَدِيثٌ حَسَنٌ

Qutaiba narrated from Jarir, who from Khusaim, who from Sa'eed bin Jubair, who from Ibn Abbas, who said that Rasool Allah (saw) said about Hajar-e-Aswad:

By Allah, Hajar-e-Aswad will be granted eyes on the day of judgement by Allah and also a tongue, which will give testimony in favour of those who behaved well with it.
 
Abu 'Isa said that this hadith is "Hasan".
Sunnan Tirmidhi, Book of Hajj
 
And if some one still denies benefiting powers of Hajar-e-Aswad, then know that Allah has put a seal upon his heart and no one can show him the right path except Allah (swt) Himself. At end, we are presenting the following tradition for Momineen from "Wasa'ilus Shia".

ذكره، عن أبي جعفر (عليه السلام) ـ في حديث ـ قال: ثم ادن من الحجر واستلمه بيمينك.
((17843)) 13 ـ وعن محمد بن الحسن، عن الصفار، عن علي بن حسان الواسطي، عن عمه عبد الرحمن بن كثير الهاشمي، عن أبي عبدالله (عليه السلام) قال: مر عمر بن الخطاب على الحجر الاسود فقال: والله يا حجر إنا لنعلم أنك حجر لا تضر ولا تنفع إلا أنا رأينا رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) يحبك فنحن نحبك، فقال أمير المؤمنين (عليه السلام): كيف يابن الخطاب ! فوالله ليبعثنه الله يوم القيامة وله لسان وشفتان، فيشهد لمن وافاه،

We muslims have the faith that each word which Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) used to say was not of his own will. As he mentioned in one of the Hadith that what he speaks is not from his own will but through the command of Allah. We also have a firm believe that Prophet (pbuh) never told a lie. If someone says Prophet (pbuh) told a lie, his destinaltion is the Hell fire.
Now, in one of the Hadith, prophet (pbuh) said that "if there is to be a prophet after me, it would have been Umar."
This single hadith is more than enough to realize and understand the real position of Hadhrat Umar in the sight of the prophet (pbuh).
Hadhrat Umar was given the title as "Al-Faarooq" by the prophet which means 'one who can differentiate the truth (haq) and the falsehood (baatil).'

Dear Brother,

S.A.

I agree with the half part of your comment. The remaining part is disputable. How Umar can be (would be) a prophet when he spent most of his life believing KUFR. His life after apparently accepting islam is also totally under controversies. The injustice committed by him is what you are reading here. How can you agree that a person like him would be a prophet?

Our Holy Prophet said: "If there was to be a prophet after me it would have been "Umar "

This is unquestionably untrue. Ponder on these points-

1. When the Shi'as want to prove any thing against the Sunnis they do not quote Shi'a books or Shi'a traditions They quote references from the Sunni books. Therefore, if any Sunni wished to prove to US any virtue Of 'Umar, he should cite references from the Shi'a books. Is it not stark foolishness to quote a Sunni tradition against the Shi'as? Well, even the Hindus and the Christians could easily prove the 'truth' of their religion vis-a-vis Islam if they were allowed to quote from their own books.

2. Even the Sunnis believe that the Prophets must be Ma'sum (infallible) untainted with kufr (infidelity) throughout their lives i.e. even before being invested with prophethood See, for example, "Mawaqif" of Qadi 'Izzududdin, and "Sham-eMawaqif" of Sharif Jurjani. Also refer to "Fiqh-e-Akbar" of Imam Abu Hanifa and its 'Sharh' by Mulla 'Ali Qari.

Now 'Umar was a "Mushrik" (idol-worshipper) for at least 40 years. How could a has-been idol worshipper be a "potential prophet"?

3. Prophets must be top-most in divine knowledge and embellished with other virtues. 'Umar blundered more than 100 times in his judgments and rulings, so much so that once a woman silenced him in an open gathering and refuted his ruling by quoting an 'aya of the Qur'an upon which he was constrained to (Every person is more knowledgeable in religion than 'Umar even the women who sit in seclusion). Is this the qualification of a potential prophet?

4. In the "Sanad" (chain of tradition of this alleged hadith) there is the name of one Musharrih about whom Ibn Jawzi (a well-known Sunni authority on Hadith and Religion) has said:

"Ibn Habban has said that the writings/books of Musharrih became topsy turvy; therefore quoting him in proof is invalid" When the Sunni scholars themselves say that one of the narrators of this 'tradition' was unreliable and confusion was worse confounded in his books how do they expect the Shi'as to believe in such a spurious "hadith"?
