About the Author

Ayatullah Salehi Najafabadi is an insightful jurist who passed away in 2006 in Iran. He authored a number of works on issues such as Islamic government, gender equity and religious tax. His most controversial work was on the martyrdom of Husayn b. Ali, the grandson of the Prophet. In this work, he argues that Husayn's martyrdom was not pre-ordained and that Imam Husayn did not have fore-knowledge of the event of Kerbala.

Format: Perfect Paperback Verified Purchase
Ayat. Najafabadi's scholarship here challenges some of the more popular views that many Shi'i Muslims hear in their mosques.

His critique of certain ahadith, especially against Qur'anic concepts, revives a more "grounded" (in the rationalistic sense - though I do not necessarily mean that this is a superior sense, that requires more study and reflection) view of the status and abilities of the Prophet and 12 imams of the Prophet's household.

Recommended read for those who want a taste - as this book is short and leaves the reader with many questions - of the question of "ghuluww" in the Shi'i religious realm, and the elasticity of that term.

Readers may want to supplement this with some of Hossein Modarressi's work.

This is a great read for anyone seeking to understand the history of distortions in Shia religious texts. Great translation and easy to read.
