Imam Ali, infallibility, The daughter of Abu Jahl, curriculum of the year, Ebn Taimia


The Imami Shiites, with their belief in the Imamate and limiting it to the twelve imams, have made great efforts to explain and clarify the components of this belief. Among the issues related to the imamate, the issue of infallibility is one of the most important and has always preoccupied their minds. But there have always been many questions and doubts about it. Scholars of Shiite theology have faced these questions throughout the glorious history of Shiism and considered it their duty to answer them. Among those doubts and questions is what Ibn Tayma raised in his book "The Curriculum of the Sunnah". His suspicions are based in their entirety on a group of narrations in which the Messenger (may God’s prayers and peace be upon him) rebuked Ali and was angry with him. Trying through these narratives to challenge the infallibility of Ali and then overthrow it. One of these false and fabricated narrations is the one that tells the story of the betrothal of Ali (PBUH) to the daughter of Abu Jahl, because of which the Prophet (PBUH) and Mrs. Al-Zahra’ both became angry with Ali (PBUH). However, when studying these narrations in terms of support, significance, and text, it became clear that this story is fabricated, fabricated, and baseless. As there are some unknown, weak and unreliable persons in its chain of transmission, which states its weakness, and the novel responds to a set of problems in terms of the text. Moreover, it contradicts the definitive narrations issued by the imams of Ahl al-Bayt (may God’s peace be upon them). In conclusion, the study concluded that Ibn Taymiyyah, because of his slander and hatred of the Ahl al-Bayt, sought to challenge their infallibility, but his efforts and attempts were met with abject failure because they suffer from many problems that were not hidden even by the scholars of the Sunnis and the community themselves.
