One thought on “ImaReza (a.s) Selection Of Hadith”

  1. Can You explain The Hadith no #USOOL KAFI, VOL 1, P 202) USOOL KAFI, VOL 1, P 200)regarding the Imams And their error free and sin free existance.and above that the knowledge that they are privileged with
    Can you prove these Qualities of the Imam’s using the Noble QURAN and The Saying’s of Prophet Muhammed (Salalahualaihiwasalam)PBUH.

    I am a Muslim and i do not like it when people twist Islam
    Around just because they want to blindly follow the belief of thier ancestor’s or thier spiritual leaders even if they go against the Quran and Sunnah.Because The Quran and Sunnah will never contradict each other because Prophet Muhammed (Salalahualaihiwasalam)PBUH was the Best example of a Muslim
