Big Issue : Shias ! Can u tell why your imam is higher in status than prophets,and r equal in rank&status to Prophet (saw)?

Momneen, Heading of this article is not mine...read it carefully. A propaganda is going on internet that we Shias rank high our Imams in comparison to our beloved Prophets. You can see this at http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20081209112652AAv95ks What I want to say that if you people find anything like this please reply or contradict immediately. It's a campaign against Shias around the world. So, on Yahoo Answers some momneen replied about this hate question and you should read that how we should respond. Here are answers of momneen about that hate question - ...................................................... Salam i personaly think that Imams and prophets can't be compared. they both work towards the same goal, but with diffent dutys. as the Holy Quran says, Mohammad (PBUH) is only a messenger, only a reminder. Alllah tell Mohammad (PBUH) just to remind people. but the Imams protect the religion. the message is delivered by the prophet and is protected by the Imams. it's like saying, rank these two people who work in a bank. the guy who delivers the money or the securites who gurd the money/bank. you just can't compare them really as they have diffrent dutys alsthough they're working towards the same goal. so why do you think religion was completed when Imam Ali (as) was announced as the leader? because the message was delivered and it's going to be defended by Ali (as) and his generation. "...This day have I perfected for you your religion and completed My favor on you and chosen for you Islam as a religion; ..." (this verse was sent when Mohammad (PBUH) had choosen Imam Ali (as) as the leader of muslims after him when they were coming back from the last hajj) SHIA 4 LIFE !!!!! ........................................................... I'm a Shia. THE IMAMS ARE NOT RANKED HIGHER THAN THE PROPHET. You have been misinformed, I'm afraid to say. Also, if Shia's said the Imams were a higher staus than the prophets, how could they ALSO be equal status? You need to brush up on your grammar. BUT the imams are not ranked equal with the Prophet. You have been misinformed, I'm afraid to say. Maddy x ........................................................... Salaamalaikum, Do you not read the Glorius Quran? The Holy Quran says that Prophet Ibrahim PBUH was raised from the level of Rasool to an Imam, and Allah also promises him more Imams through his lineage, and we see that Muhammad RasoolAllah PBUH was a direct descendent of Prophet Ibrahim PBUH. When Ibrahim was tested by his Rabb (Allah) in certain matters and completed it (the test with success), (it was) said (unto him by Allah): “I shall raise ye as Imam of Mankind.” (Ibrahim said): “And from my descendants too?” (Allah) said, “My Promise shall not be for Zalimeen (evil doers).” (Holy Qur’an, Surah al-Baqarah, ayat 124) Mind it, he was already a Messenger, therefore Imamate is total leadership, unlike Risalah of many Messengers, whose message or mission was restricted to a particular clan, community, social, or religious aspect of life. Imamate is a function in totality, and it is not necessary for every Messenger to be an Imam, or every Imam to be a Messenger. Thus, Allah chose the house of Hadrat Ibrahim for Imamate, and amongst his descendants a majority of them were either Messengers or Imams, until the manifestation of the one for whom Prophet Ibrahim PBUH had made Du’a, the Holy Last Messenger, Muhammad PBUH, who Allah raised as Imam of Mursaleen (Messengers) and gave Hikmah (Wisdom), Rahmah (Mercy), and Generosity through his descendants, and made them Imams of all mankind, and thus purified them of all spiritual diseases, such as polytheism, worldly lusts, etc. Allah says in the Holy Qur’an: “Allah Desires to remove Rijis (spiritual impurities) O’ Ye Ahlul-Bayt, so as to keep you pure (outwardly and inwardly). (Surah al-Ahzab, ayat 33) ......and do not forget the words of the Holy Prophet he stated- “Verily, I am leaving among you two things to which if you adhere, you will never be misguided after me. One of the two is greater than the other: The Book of Allah, a rope extended from Heaven towards the Earth; and my ‘Itrit (descendants), the people of my house (Itrit; i.e.,Ahlul-Bayt). And they will never become separate till they have come to the Fountain (al-Kauthar). So see how you should differ from me about them.” (Tirmidhi) But my Muslim brothers and Sisters I have to say that you left the descendents of the Prophet, and then slaughtered them and their followers. Oh Allah please forgive the Sins of the Umaah Ameen yea I am terribly sorry for posting on your other question. Shabbir A. .......................................................... Prophet who bring the religion Imam who protect the religion after the prophet . how they are equel ? Staff of Moses .......................................................... i tell you why: "just because... imam... is ... sooooooo dear" Dawn .......................................................... There more answers, but I chosen few. I once again to appeal all of you please don't be shy and answer all questions posed by these type of people. If you don't want to answer, you can forward other shia momneen or shia blogs/shia websites. If you send us at http://shianetwrk.blogspot.com we will be happy to answer. Yusuf
