Is al kafi we have today the same Al Kafi which was written by Kulayni (died 329 hijri)? or were they recently played with and changed to suit the beliefs of modern day Shia? We found this narration in the Book al Kafi which aroused suspicion BIG TIME.

1 – محمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن محمد، عن الحسين بن سعيد، عن علي بن أسباط عن الحكم بن مسكين، عن بعض أصحابنا قال: قلت لابي عبدالله عليه السلام متى يعرف الاخير ما عند الاول؟ قال: في آخر دقيقة تبقى من روحه

1- Muhamad bin Yahya from Ahmad bin Muhammad from Hussein bin Sa’eed from Ali bin asbat from al Hakam bin Miskeen from some of our friends That he said: I said to abu Abdullah PBUH when does the last one know what is with the first one? He said: In the last remaining minute of his soul.
[Al Kafi]

The Link to Al Kafi: http://www.alhikmeh.com/arabic/mktba…lkafi01/09.htm

Under such chapters as “That When the Imams Want to Know They Will Know” and “That the Imams know when they die and they Die when they choose to” and “That The Imams have the knowledge of what was and what is to be and that Nothing is ever hidden from them” and other such Kufri chapters you’ll reach on page 274 a Chapter called “وقت ما يعلم الامام جميع علم الامام الذي كان قبله” “The Time when the Imam learns all the knowledge of the Imam which preceded him”.

You’ll also find two Other narrations in this door with different Chain of narrators:
2 – محمد، عن محمد بن الحسين، عن علي بن أسباط، عن الحكم بن مسكين، عن عبيد بن زرارة وجماعة معه قالوا: سمعنا أبا عبدالله (عليه السلام) يقول: يعرف الذي بعد
الامام علم من كان قبله في آخر دقيقة تبقى من روحه.
3 – محمد بن يحيى، عن محمد بن الحسين، عن يعقوب بن يزيد، عن علي بن أسباط، عن بعض أصحابه، عن أبي عبدالله (عليه السلام) قال: قلت له: الامام متى يعرف إمامته وينتهي الامر إليه؟ قال: في آخر دقيقة من حياة الاول.

Both are like the first one and they use the term “minute” to specify time, which is of course unheard of in their time.

Second chain is: Muhammad from Muhammad bin al Hussein from Ali bin Asbat from al Hakam bin Miskeen from Ubaydah bin Zurarah and a group of people with him: we heard Abu Abdullah Say…

Third Chain is: Muhammad bin Yahya from Muhammad bin al Hussein from ya’aqoob bin Yazeed from Ali bin Asbat from some of his friends from Abu Abdullah PBUH.

Arabic dictionaries dating to that time were checked and the term “Minute” was NON-Existent ! Because there is no such thing as a Clock Back then which calculates minutes and seconds, And we all know the events of this hadith were happening in around 140 hijri.

The simple question is, Who Is Adding Narrations to al Kafi after several hundred years? did Kulayni have a pocket watch in which he used it to calculate minutes and seconds?

We Know that the mechanical clock wasn’t invented before 700 years.

The Word minute was used to specify time in these Shia books:

الكافي للكليني المتوفى سنة 329 هـ
Al Kafi for Kulayni who died 329 hijri.
و بصائر الدرجات للصفار المتوفى سنة 290 هـ
Basa’er al Darajat for Al Saffar who died 290 hijri.
و الإمامة والتبصرة لابن بابويه القمي والد الصدوق المتوفى سنة 329 هـ
Al Imamah wal Tabsirah for Ibn babaweih al Qummi the Father of Al Saduq who died 329 hijri.

This Clear Lie was not found in the books of the Twelvers who were written much later in time such as:
كمؤلفات الصدوق المتوفى سنة 381 هـ مع تعددها
Books of Saduq (d.381 h)
ومؤلفات المفيد المتوفى سنة 413 هـ مع تعددها
Books of Mufid (d.413 h)
ومؤلفات المرتضى المتوفى سنة 436 هـ مع تعددها
Books of Murtada (d.436 h)
ومؤلفات الطوسي المتوفى سنة 460 هـ مع تعددها
Books of Tusi (d. 460 h)
ومؤلفات الطبرسي المتوفى سنة 548 مع تعددها
Books of Tabrasi (d. 548 h)

This is Clear corruption of the Main Shia books by every standard, it means they fabricated narrations (God knows how many) and placed Imaginary Sanads for them…

One of the biggest Arabic Mu’ujams(Dictionaries) says That the Minute or (Daqiqah) is a unit of measurement of time and it represents 1/60 from an entire hour as well as 60 seconds, it is also used to measure the vertical and horizontal lines … And that The use of the word to mean “time” Is Muhdath, meaning it’s a new word which never existed in the time of the Imams or Al Kafi.

المعجم الوسيط [1 /291]
( الدقيقة ) وحدة زمنية تعادل جزءا من ستين جزءا من الساعة ووحدة لقياس خطوط الطول أو العرض تساوي جزءا من ستين جزءا من الدرجة ( مج ) ( ج ) دقائق ( محدثة )

Dictionary: [Al Mu’ujam al Waseet 1/291.]

Some idiot who corrupted the books of Ibn Tawoos (d. 664 h) even made it worse by making the author calculate the birth of his son by the seconds!!!

[ Kashf al Mahajjah – Sayyed Ibn Tawoos page 4 / كشف المحجة لثمرة المهجة – السيد ابن طاووس – ص 4]

وكان ولدي ( علي ) شرفه الله جل جلاله طول مدته وأتحفه بكرامته قد دخل في السنة الثالثة من عمره وولادته ولد بعد مضي ثانيتين وست عشرة دقيقة من يوم الجمعة ثامن محرم سنة سبع وأربعين وستمائة بمشهد مولانا علي صلوات الله عليه وهما وديعتي عند الله جل جلاله

“My Son (Ali) who was honored by Allah the Great during the entire period of his life and was given from his Karamat he had entered his third year from his life And his Birth was after the passing of two seconds and sixteen minutes on Friday the 8th of Muharram 647 A.H in Mash-had of Mawlana Ali PBUH…”

Then we have another narration in al Kafi Volume 8 page 195 and page 196 narrated from a couple of their friends in which the Imam Abu Abdullah RAA is calculating the minutes between the Planets and then between the sun and planet earth Then between The Tree and the Board…
– عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ خَالِدٍ عَنِ ابْنِ فَضَّالٍ عَنِ الْحَسَنِ بْنِ أَسْبَاطٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ سَيَابَةَ قَالَ قُلْتُ لِأَبِي عَبْدِ اللَّهِ ( عليه السلام ) جُعِلْتُ لَكَ الْفِدَاءَ إِنَّ النَّاسَ يَقُولُونَ إِنَّ النُّجُومَ لَا يَحِلُّ النَّظَرُ فِيهَا وَ هِيَ تُعْجِبُنِي فَإِنْ كَانَتْ تُضِرُّ بِدِينِي فَلَا حَاجَةَ لِي فِي شَيْ‏ءٍ يُضِرُّ بِدِينِي وَ إِنْ كَانَتْ لَا تُضِرُّ بِدِينِي فَوَ اللَّهِ إِنِّي لَأَشْتَهِيهَا وَ أَشْتَهِي النَّظَرَ فِيهَا فَقَالَ لَيْسَ كَمَا يَقُولُونَ لَا تُضِرُّ بِدِينِكَ ثُمَّ قَالَ إِنَّكُمْ تَنْظُرُونَ فِي شَيْ‏ءٍ مِنْهَا كَثِيرُهُ لَا يُدْرَكُ وَ قَلِيلُهُ لَا يُنْتَفَعُ بِهِ تَحْسُبُونَ عَلَى طَالِعِ الْقَمَرِ ثُمَّ قَالَ أَ تَدْرِي كَمْ بَيْنَ الْمُشْتَرِي وَ الزُّهَرَةِ مِنْ دَقِيقَةٍ قُلْتُ لَا وَ اللَّهِ قَالَ أَ فَتَدْرِي كَمْ بَيْنَ الزُّهَرَةِ وَ بَيْنَ الْقَمَرِ مِنْ دَقِيقَةٍ قُلْتُ لَا قَالَ أَ فَتَدْرِي كَمْ بَيْنَ الشَّمْسِ وَ بَيْنَ السُّنْبُلَةِ مِنْ دَقِيقَةٍ قُلْتُ لَا وَ اللَّهِ مَا سَمِعْتُ مِنْ أَحَدٍ مِنَ الْمُنَجِّمِينَ قَطُّ قَالَ أَ فَتَدْرِي كَمْ بَيْنَ السُّنْبُلَةِ وَ بَيْنَ اللَّوْحِ الْمَحْفُوظِ مِنْ دَقِيقَةٍ قُلْتُ لَا وَ اللَّهِ مَا سَمِعْتُهُ مِنَ مُنَجِّمٍ قَطُّ قَالَ مَا بَيْنَ كُلِّ وَاحِدٍ مِنْهُمَا إِلَى صَاحِبِهِ سِتُّونَ أَوْ سَبْعُونَ دَقِيقَةً [شَكَّ عَبْدُ الرَّحْمَنِ] ثُمَّ قَالَ يَا عَبْدَ الرَّحْمَنِ هَذَا حِسَابٌ إِذَا حَسَبَهُ الرَّجُلُ وَ وَقَعَ عَلَيْهِ عَرَفَ الْقَصَبَةَ الَّتِي فِي وَسَطِ الْأَجَمَةِ وَ عَدَدَ مَا عَنْ يَمِينِهَا وَ عَدَدَ مَا عَنْ يَسَارِهَا وَ عَدَدَ مَا خَلْفَهَا وَ عَدَدَ مَا أَمَامَهَا حَتَّى لَا يَخْفَى عَلَيْهِ مِنْ قَصَبِ الْأَجَمَةِ وَاحِدَةٌ . الكافي ج8 ص195-196

Now the Shia will jump and Say “Not all hadith in al Kafi are Sahih” well As you know that’s not the point, The Point is These are inserted after a few hundred years when clocks and their measuring units were invented, and those three narrations in al Kafi are believe it or not an Entire Chapter! this means that they were able to fabricate chapters and insert them into this book al kafi and no one even noticed. Thus the Problem is much bigger than Kulayni’s usual habit of lying and attributing it to the Imams, This means that Kulayni never actually wrote al kafi in the first place.

And Maybe just Maybe this happened when the Safavid Twelver Shia empire was ruling Iran in the 1700s … you know when there were Clocks around

Besides what knowledge is he gonna give him in one minute? Why wait for the last minute to give him all this knowledge of Mushaf fatima and The Mahdi’s True Quran and The Miracles of the past imams and How to Know the future and so on…. All in one minute? Unless he has a Flash memory USB that can contain One Terra-byte Then that would be more believable.

While they claim that their Main Books of Usool are all Mutawatir from the Imams, the reality is quite bitter as they never really took care of their books, as you all know the Shia books of Usool are Four…Well that’s incorrect it’s Five books but one of them seems to have disappeared, the fifth is called “Madinat al Ilm” for Ibn babaweih al Saduq Which is TEN VOLUMES. Imagine the Muslims suddenly losing The Book of Sunan al tirmithy or Sahih Muslim…

This is the Father of Bahai al Amili (died 984 Hijri) saying:
وصول الأخيار إلى أصول الأخبار – والد البهائي العاملي – ص 85
وأصولنا الخمسة ( الكافي ) و ( مدينة العلم ) وكتاب ( من لا يحضره الفقيه ) و ( التهذيب ) و ( الاستبصار ) قد احتوت على أكثر الأحاديث المروية عن النبي صلى الله عليه وآله والأئمة المعصومين عليهم السلام عندنا و أهمها بحيث لا يشذ عنها الا النزر القليل .
“And Our Five Books of Usool (Al Kafi), (Madinat Al Ilm) and the book ( Man La Yahduruhu al Faqih) and (Tahtheeb) and (Istibsar) have contained the majority of narrated Hadiths from the prophet PBUH and his AluLbayt and the infallible Imams PBUT and contained the most important of them”
[Wusool al Akhyar Ila Usool al Akhbar – Walid al Bahai al Amili page 85]

Major classical Shia scholars narrated from that book Like Ibn tawoos (d. 664 H) and Allamah Al helli (d. 726 H) and Al Shaheed al Awwal (d. 786 H)… But Suddenly and for no apparent reason in the tenth century Hijri, the Book disappears and is no longer available and no one has ever seen it since.

About this topic, Grand Ayatullah Al Khoei said:
كتاب الطهارة السيد الخوئي – (7 / 452)
والراوي عن الصدوق هو الشهيد في الذكرى على ما في الوسائل والشهيد ثقة عدل يتبع روايته عن كتاب (مدينة العلم) وان كان هذا الكتاب غير موجود في عصرنا لانه مسروق ولكن الشهيد – حسب روايته – ينقل عن نفس الكتاب وطريقه إلى الكتاب معتبر كما يظهر من المراجعة إلى الطرق والاجازات وبه تكون الرواية مسندة وتخرج عن الاضمار والقطع

“And this book is not available in our times because it was stolen”
[Kitab al Taharah – Sayyed Khoei 7/452]

About this topic, Abbas al Qummi said:
منازل الآخرة – الشيخ عباس القمي – (1 / 190)
والدعاء في فلاح السائل للسيّد ابن طاووس: ص 85، عن كتاب مدينة العلم للشيخ الصدوق، وهو من الكتب المهمّة بمنزلة التهذيب والفقيه وقد ضاع،

“And this is from the important books on the same level as Al Tahtheeb and al Faqih and it was lost”
[Manazel al Akhirah – Sheikh Abbas al Qummi 1/190]

And who can believe that the second source of Shia Hadith suddenly disappeared after 600 years from which it was written!?

As I Said Only Allah knows how many narrations and passages they inserted in their main books like al Kafi in the later years. As Imam al Shafi’i once rightly put it, That No One must follow the Shias because they have the habit of making up narrations and believing in them.

المحقّق الخبير المولى أبو الحسن الشعراني :
[ إن أكثر أحاديث الأصول في الكافي غير صحيحة الإسناد
ولكنها معتمدة لاعتبار متونها وموافقتها للعقائد الحقّة
ولا ينظر في مثلها إلى الإسناد ]

The Giant Shia Muhaqqiq called Abu al Hassan al Sha’arani says:
“The Majority of the Hadiths of Usool in al Kafi are not Sahih in their Sanad but they are adopted because their Matn(Text) Agrees with the correct Aqeedah and we do not need to look at the Sanad in such narrations”

[ فإننا لا نحتاج إلى سند لهذه الأصول الأربعة
وإذا أوردنا سنداً
فليس إلا للتيمن والبركة والإقتداء بسنة السلف ]

“We do Not need Sanad for the four books of Usool and when we place the Sanad we do it just out of blessing and to follow the Sunnah of our predecessors”

This is Dangerous Stuff here, you know what this means? It means They have certain beliefs and they will search for anything which agrees to their beliefs, On the Other hand the Mainstream Muslims believe according to the proofs found in the books and not the other way around.

now you know why Allah uses the “hour” as the shortest measurement of time and not the minute or second which weren’t known to the Arabs back then.

“And for every nation is a [specified] term. So when their time has come, they will not remain behind an hour, nor will they precede [it].”[7:34]

“And on the Day when He will gather them, [it will be] as if they had not remained [in the world] but an hour of the day, [and] they will know each other. Those will have lost who denied the meeting with Allah and were not guided [yunus:45]

even Ali RA seems to have missed minutes and seconds in Nahjul balagha:
“May Allah have pity on you. You should therefore hasten towards (the preparation of) houses which you have been commanded to populate, and towards which you have been called and invited. Seek the completion of Allah’s favours on you by exercising endurance in His obedience and abstention from His disobedience, because tomorrow is close to today. How fast are the hours of the day, how fast are the days in the month, how fast are the months in the years and how fast the years in a life.”
[Sermon 187]
