                5) Al-Allamah Mohammed Baqir al-Majilisi has related the following chain of authority about this sermon from ash-Shaykh Qutbu’d-Din ar-Rawandi’s compilation Minhaj al-bard’ah fi Sharh Nahj al-Balaghah:

 

                Ash-Shaykh  Abu Nasr al-Hasan ibn Mohammed ibn Ibrahim informed me from al-Hajib Abu’l-Wafa’ Mohammed ibn Badim al-Hussain ibn Ahmed ibn Badi and al-Hussain ibn Ahmed ibn ‘Abd ar-Rahman and they from al-Hafiz Abu Bakr(Ahmed ibn Musa) ibn Marduwayh  al-Isbahani (d. 416 A.H) and he from al-Hafiz Abu’l-Qasim Sulayman ibn Ahmed at-Tabarani(d. 360 A.H) and he from Ahmed ibn ‘Ali al-Abbar and he from Is’haq ibn Said Abu Salamah ad-Dimashqi and he from Khulayd ibn Da’laj and he from ‘Ata ibn Rabah and he from ibn-Abbas (Bihar al-anwar, 1st edition; vol:8; pp:160-161)

               

                6) In the context, al-Allamah al-Majilisi has written that this sermon is also contained in the compilation of Abu ‘Ali (Mohammed ibn ‘Abd al-Wahab) al-Jubbai (d.303 A.H)

 

                7) In connection with this very authenticity, al-Allamah al-Majilisi writes:

 

                Al-qazi ‘Abd al-Jabbar ibn Ahmed al-Asad’abadi (d. 415 A.H) , who was a strict Mu’tazilite, explains some expressions of this sermon in his book al-Mughni and tries to prove that it does not strike against any preceding caliph but does not deny it to be Amir-ul-Momineen’s(AS) composition (ibid; p:161)

 

                8) Abu Ja’far Mohammed ibn ‘Ali ibn Babawayh (d.381 A.H) writes:

 

                Mohammed ibn Ibrahim ibn Is’haq at-Talaqani told us that ‘Abd al-Aziz ibn Yahya al-Jaludi (d.332 A.H) told him that Abu ‘ Abdillah Ahmed ibn ‘Ammar ibn Khalid told him that Yahya ibn al-Hamid al-Hammani (d.228 A.H) told him that ‘Isa ibn Rashid related this sermon from ‘Ali ibn Hudhayfah and he from ‘Ikrimah and he from ibn-Abbas (‘Ilal ash-shara’i; vol:1; chapter :122 ;p: 144; Ma’ani al-akhbar; chapter:22; pp:360-361).

 

                9) Then ibn Babawayh records the following chain of authorities:

 

                Mohammed ibn ‘Ali Majilawayh related this sermon to us and he took it from his uncle Mohammed ibn Abi’l-Qasim and he from Ahmed ibn Abi-Abdillah (Mohammed ibn Khalid) al-Barqi and he from his father and he from(Mohammed) ibn  Abi Umayr and he from Aban ibn Usman and he from Aban ibn Taghlib and he from ‘Ikrimah and he from ‘Abbas (‘Ilal ash –shara’i; vol:1; chapter:122; p:146; Ma’ani al-akhbar;chapter:22;p:361)

 

                10) Abu Ahmed al-Hasan ibn ‘Abdillah ibn Sa’id al-Askari (d.382 A.H) who counts among great scholars of the sunnis has written commentary and explanation of this sermon that has been recorded by ibn Babawayh in ‘Illal ash-shara’i and ma’ani al-akhbar.

 

                11)As-Sayed Ni’amatullah al-Jaza’iri writes:

 

 

                The author of Kitab al-ghardi , Abu Is’haq Ibrahim ibn Mohammed ath-Thaqaff al-Kufi (d.283 A.H) has related this sermon through his own chain of authorities. The date of completion of writing this book is Tuesday, 13th Shawwal, 255 A.H and in the same year, Murtaza al-Musawi was born. He was older in age that his brother as-Sayed ar-Razi (Anwar an-Nu’maniyyah; p:37)

      Boy! Have you got it wrong !

      1.female genital mutilation

      Prohibited through commandments in Quran , you are confusing cultural north african practices with Islam

      2.women can’t drive, can’t vote, and education is severely repressed

      Happens in Saudi occupied Arabia.
      You want to believe Saudis are epitome of Islam which is far from the truth.

      3.uses suicide bombers against civilians

      Again Saudi financed and backed militants which are supported by US alliance forces.

      4.terrorist attacks (gun/knife/axe) on innocent civilians

      You mean the radical elements from non-muslim convert world which find the justification of their actions by Saudi financed preachers?

      5.kill homosexuals

      Show me where does Quran support your delusion that we want to kills homosexuals? The guy who shot the homos in the bar in US was himself a homo. So, would you say homos promote killing of other homos?

      6.condone slavery

      Dude! YOU condone slavery when you purchase goods outsourced from third world countries.

      7.condone the rape of slaves

      You wish.See my reply above.

      8.gang rape of women

      LOL!!

      9.rape of children

      Dude! Seriously!!! what’s your fixation with rape? Please consult a psychiatrist ASAP!!!

      10.whipping is acceptable punishment for crimes

      Much milder than gitmo-bay, a’int it?

      11.cut off hands of thieves

      Its actually cutting off their freedom to move around freely, but yes! your delusion makes you think anything that Saudi thugs do is Islamic.

      12.beheadings are acceptable punishment for crimes

      Really? You thought that up didn’t you ? refer gitmo bay again. I know its uncomfortable but ask your masters bush & co. how it feels to torture innocent civilians 24/7.

      13.genocide of Christians is acceptable

      Get history 101 ASAP or google “crusades”

      14.enslavement of Christians is acceptable

      Google “crusades” LOL! getting repetative here

      15.religious freedom is unacceptable

      Yeah ? You want religious freedom?
      How about this—-
      http://www.thequint.com/world/2016/08/05/muslim-couple-deboarded-from-flight-for-sweating-saying-allah

      Dude! You have some serious delusions.
      Please repent to The God and maybe He’ll forgive you and cure your delusions and bring you to right path.
      Regards.
