As you know there are many challenges put on the followers of the ahlulbayt by people who charge us as being ahlulbid'ah (i.e. innovators).
I have a question regarding the shahadatayn (or 3 shahadaat as is in the adhan within this ppt slide pack): can you please let me know which book the Yamani has mentioned the 3 shahadaat in and also what his rational behind it is because currently I don't have an answer to the ones who accuse us of bid'ah. The Yamani typically explains things in great detail so I'd rather go back to them with his answer as opposed to me simply saying he is the messenger from the Mahdi so we should obey him.
Your speedy response would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Wa'alekum Assalaam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatahu brother,
Insha'Allah you could face them with this Hadith:
Abu Abdullah As-Sadiq (AS) also stated in this respect:
Qaâ€™im (AS) will not rise unless people are struck by paralyzing fear,
earthquakes, trials and afflictions preceded by a plague, and unless a
fierce fight breaks out between Arabs, a grim discord and religious
division occur between people, a great change in their situation takes
place to the point that the desirous person will wish for death day and
night because of the magnitude of the changes he beholds, such as
the madness of the people who destroy each other until he appears at
moments of utter despair and hopelessness. Blessed be those who
will recognize him and become from his supporters and woe unto
those who contradict and disobey him and become enemies of his.
Then he said: He will found a new rule, establish a new Sunnah
inflict a new harsh judgment upon the Arabs, which will be limited to
killing for he will ask no one to repent and he will worship, obey and
follow Allah without fearing peopleâ€™s hostility.]
