Anyone who doubts faith of Abu Talib sinned: Sunni Mufti of Aleppo

Anyone who doubts faith of Abu Talib sinned: Sunni Mufti of Aleppo

The closing ceremony of the “International Conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.); Supporter of the Great Prophet (p.b.u.h)” was held on Thursday evening, March 11, 2021, at the Imam Khomeini School in Qom.


On this day, after three years of activity, this important scientific and cultural event ends its work in a three-day conference, by presenting dozens of books and articles, translating dozens of valuable works, and holding 42 scientific pre-sessions, several art events, and cultural festivals, and holding sessions for five specialized committees.


As the first speaker at the closing ceremony of the “International Conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.); Supporter of the Great Prophet (p.b.u.h)”, Sheikh Mahmoud Akam, the Sunni Mufti of Aleppo, Syria, delivered his speech via video conference.


At the beginning of his speech, he appreciated the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, and organizers of the conference for holding it.


“Anyone who doubts the faith of Aboutaleb has sinned. Abu Talib supported, defended, and protected the Prophet, and for the sake of him and the religion of Islam, he confronted the violence of the polytheists,” added Sheikh Akam, emphasizing that Abu Talib (a.s.) had faith.


“Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) confirmed the Prophet with his actions, words, thoughts, and positions, and when he died, Hazrat Khadijeh, the wife of the Prophet (p.b.u.h), died in the same year,” he stated.


“All you have to do is adapt this verse to your position on Abu Talib,” said the Syrian Mufti, referring to verse 23 of Surah Al-Shura which says, “Say, ‘I do not ask you any reward for it except the love of [my] relatives.”


“There are many similar and converging Quranic verses,” added Sheikh Akam, referring to verse 107 of Sura al-Kahf which says, “As for those who have faith and do righteous deeds, they shall have the gardens of Firdaws for abode.”


“Abu Talib (a.s.) apparently did not convert to Islam and did not say the Shahada, which is one of the pillars of Islam. But he also did not say anything that was clearly in conflict with it. His words and deeds have been narrated as evidenced to his loyalty to his nephew’s religion (Islam),” Syrian Mufti continued.


“The reasons for faith are located in the heart of Abu Talib (a.s.). There is direct evidence that shows that he praised the Prophet with his firm words, and in his clear poems, he has praised his religion. Ibn Abi al-Hadid has mentioned these poems in his commentary on Nahj al-Balaghah,” said the prominent mufti of Aleppo, Syria.


“There are some positions that prove the faith of this great man. Abu Talib’s certificates of faith are valid. Abu Bakr said in this regard, “I swear to the one who sent you the truth, I am happier with Abu Talib’s Islam than my father’s conversion to Islam”,” he added.


“Suyuti mentions in al-Khasais that at the time of his death, Abu Talib invited the sons of Abd al-Muttalib and told them in his will, “You will not prosper in the end unless you listen to Muhammad, follow him, and follow his command. So, follow him and help him to be guided”,” continued Sheikh Akam.


“Qarfi al-Maliki in his commentary on Tanqih al-Usul said that Abu Talib was a believer in appearance and inwardness. But he did not follow the rules of Islam publicly. Many Sunni scholars have written books proving the faith of Abu Talib, of which we refer to al-Suyuti, Zayni Dahlan, al-Barzanji, al-Sha’rani, al-Sabki, al-Qurtubi, Abu Zuhra, al-Orf, and so on. They are so numerous that they are difficult to count,” said the Syrian Mufti.


It should be mentioned that by the initiation of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, and support and cooperation of the similar institutions, including, “Imam Hossein (a.s.) Holy Shrine”, “Hazrat Aboutaleb Research and Publishing Institute”, “The World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought”, “Islamic Sciences and Culture Academy of Islamic Propagation Office”, “Al-Mustafa International University”, “Hawza Language teaching center”, “International University of AhlulBayt (a.s.)”, “Mirath-e Nabowat Cultural Institute”, “Jamiat al-Zahra Seminary University”, “Zorria al-Nabawia Research Center”, “Qasem ibn al-Hassan (a.s.) Religious-Cultural Institute”, and “Abna al-Rasoul Cultural and Artistic Institute”; international conference “Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), Supporter of the Great Prophet (p.b.u.h)” was held on Rajab 25, 26 and 27, 1442 (March 9, 10 and 11, 2021) on the anniversary of the demise of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.).

Ayatollah Nouri Hamedani’s message to the conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.)

The closing ceremony of the “International Conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.); Supporter of the Great Prophet (p.b.u.h)” was held on Thursday evening, March 11, 2021, at the Imam Khomeini School in Qom.


Referring to the character of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), the Grand Ayatollah Hossein Nouri Hamedani, one of the Shiite Sources of Emulation, stated in a message to the conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), “Abu Talib is an important figure, because Hazrat Abd al-Muttalib at the time of his death willed that Abu Talib (a.s.) would take care and custody of the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h).”


“Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) is a great and majestic figure and in his time, he had a special place among the Arabs. Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) was called Sheikh al-Bat’ha. Abu Talib writes poetry, and he has also written poems about the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h),” he continued.


‘Another characteristic of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) was his courage in supporting the Prophet (p.b.u.h). This support was especially evident in the She’b (Valley) of Abi Talib (during the siege of Quraysh against the Prophet and his followers). There, the dangers against the Prophet (p.b.u.h) were such that Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) put his children to sleep in the place of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) in order to save the life of the Prophet (p.b.u.h),” added the Shiite Source of Emulation.


“The Prophet (p.b.u.h) was saddened by the demise of Abu Talib (a.s.), and after that, he migrated from Mecca to Medina. The incident of “Hijra” (migration) happened due to the loneliness of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h), which has many points to study,” stated the Grand Ayatollah Nouri Hamedani, referring to the reaction of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) to the death of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.).


“Regarding the faith of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), it is stated in the book Al-Kafi, that Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) is like the Companions of the Cave (Seven Sleepers). The Companions of the Cave hid their faith. Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) also hid his faith to support the Prophet (p.b.u.h) and to preserve the seedlings of Islam. If a person can hide his faith (Taqyia) with courage, he has two divine rewards,” he continued.


“Abdullah Al-Khanizi wrote a book about the faith of Abu Talib (a.s.) entitled “Abu Talib; the believer of Quraysh”. This prompted the Wahhabis to assassinate the author of the book,” added the Shiite Source of Emulation.


“You who have taken this path, do not ignore the role of Zionism in the formation of oppression. You should create a stream to introduce the role of Zionism to the people. If this is not done, there will be no peace in the Middle East. We should know that in the early days of Islam the Zionism poisoned and martyred the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h),” he continued.


“In the conference of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), you should tell the Sunni brothers that holding this conference is for the proximity of Islamic schools of thought, and this is a great work,” stated the Grand Ayatollah Nouri Hamedani, considering approximation between Islamic denominations as the goal of the Iranian Islamic Revolution.

On the third day of the International Conference “Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.), the Supporter of the Great Prophet (p.b.u.h)”, the specialized session of “Abu Talib (a.s.) from the Perspective of International Scholars” was held on Thursday morning, March 11, 2021, at Imam Khomeini School in Qom.


Referring to the position of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h), Dr. Badr Al-Madani, a professor at Ez-Zitouna University in Tunisia, said, “The fathers and relatives of the Prophet (p.b.u.h), and the prophetic generation are worthy of respect and there is light in them. Due to the excellence of the Prophet (p.b.u.h), his generation has excellence and, in this regard, they should be honored.”


“In the Quran, God has purified the AhlulBayt of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) (Quran, 33:33). The virtues of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) are abundant among the Sunnis, and we love them. Codified beliefs and books of Sunni exegesis and jurisprudence are evidence of this,” he continued.


“We realized the virtue and position of the AhlulBayt (a.s.). God has referred to the AhlulBayt (a.s.) in various Quranic verses. The ancestors of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) believed in God. The bearers of divine mercy were not Mushrik (polytheists) and the AhlulBayt (a.s.) are the stars of the prophetic sky. We Sunnis believe in the faith of Abu Talib (a.s.) and there are reasons to prove this. We are not talking about this position out of prejudice,” added the Professor of Ez-Zitouna University, Tunisia.


“In various Quranic verses, God has mentioned the support of Abu Talib (a.s.) for the Prophet (p.b.u.h). These verses are proofs of the faith of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.). Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) is the father of Imam Ali (a.s.), and the grandfather of Imam Hassan (a.s.) and Imam Hussein (a.s.),” stated Dr. Badr Al-Madani, referring to the faith of Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.).


“Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.) was the custodian of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) during his orphanage. He gained the honor of supporting the Prophet (p.b.u.h), and we ask God for the love of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) and Hazrat Abu Talib (a.s.),” he continued.
