Thinking straight is not the quality that most people enjoy, so dont worry if you dont have it.
and its better not to go to the useless debate of translation as you are again and again opposing Quran by saying its destiny of Allah, or the voluntary decision of fleeing was a destiny or something like that. where Allah has been forgiving those who fleed in ohud of those fleeing, if all is destiny then what is the point of day of judgement. so in that way you are opposing quran. read sura imran and you will know it.
also you put the hadith Qudsi, where it is opposing Quran as i said in sura fatah....and then there are many instances further.
so very briefly can i ask whom should i believe, you the net swindler or this salafi scholar, M. Muhsin Khan, whose translation i referred to earlier.
He also translated whole Quran, The noble Quran, with an Arab, Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din al-Hilali.
here is his biography , http://en.wikipedia....mad_Muhsin_Khan.
so to sum up this useless wastage of time with you, what i can suggest for you , Any way its good for you to approach University of Southern California and u can suggest them that you are better translator than Muhsin Khan (as you also translate according to the hidden meaning that is not very obvious most often to most of the people including Muhsin khan) and you have your own bukhari translation.
cheers, no hard feeling.
Your are not even addressing the event in detail. Read the verse of the Quran, which is in reference to this war.
[Shakir 9:25] Certainly Allah helped you in many battlefields and on the day of Hunain, when your great numbers made you vain, but they availed you nothing and the earth became strait to you notwithstanding its spaciousness, then you turned back retreating. (Online Quran)
From the above verse I will post the 12r exegesis.
The 12rs claim "Ali ibn abi Talib, Abbas ibn Abd al Muttalib, Abu Sufyan ibn Harith and Abdullah ibn Masud were the only four persons who stayed with the Holy Prophet. Some say there were ten persons who did not run away. Ali stood in front of the Holy Prophet and stopped every attack made by the enemy to slay him."
So in their view only 4-10 people assisted RasoolAllah (sawas)
According to the 12rs the Shia among the sahaba were than 4-10. In the tradition below an evolved definition of the Shia among the sahaba is developed.
وَالْوَلايَةُ لامِيرِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالَّذِينَ مَضَوْا عَلَى مِنْهَاجِ نَبِيِّهِمْ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ وَلَمْ يُغَيِّرُوا وَلَمْ يُبَدِّلُوا مِثْلِ سَلْمَانَ الْفَارِسِيِّ وَأَبِي ذَرٍّ الْغِفَارِيِّ وَالْمِقْدَادِ بْنِ الأَسْوَدِ وَعَمَّارِ بْنِ يَاسِرٍ وَحُذَيْفَةَ بْنِ الَْيمَانِ وَأَبِي الْهَيْثَمِ بْنِ التَّيِّهَانِ وَسَهْلِ بْنِ حُنَيْفٍ وَعِبَادَةِ بْنِ الصَّامِتِ وَأَبِي أَيُّوبَ الأَنْصَارِيِّ وَخُزَيْمَةَ بْنِ ثَابِتٍ ذِي الشَّهَادَتَيْن ِ وَأَبِي سَعِيد الْخُدْرِيِّ وَأَمْثَالِهِمْ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمْ وَالْوَلايَةُ لاتْبَاعِهِمْ وَأَشْيَاعِهِمْ وَالْمُهْتَدِين َ بِهُدَاهُمْ السَّالِكِينَ مِنْهَاجَهُمْ رِضْوَانُ اللَّهِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَرَحْمَتُهُ
Imaam al-Ridhaa said: And the friendship with the Commander of the Faithful (s) and with those who followed the way of their Prophet (s), and who did not change their way such as Salman al-Farsi, Abu Tharr al-Ghifari, al-Miqdad ibn al-Aswad, Ammar bin Yasir, Hothayfa al-Yamani, Abil Haytham ibn al-Tayyihan, Sahl ibn Honayf, Ubada ibn As-Samit, Abi Ayyoub Al-Ansari, Khozayma ibn Thabit Thull-Shahadatayn, Abi Sa’eed al-Khodri and the like - may God be pleased with and have Mercy upon them - is obligatory. And the friendship with their followers who have been guided along their path - may God be pleased with them - is obligatory
From the above tradition the number of people exceeds 4-10. Does this mean the shia among ran way ? If we stick with first tradition which says 4 people assisted the Prophet (sawas), does this mean Salman Farsi (ra), Abu Dharr (ra), Miqdad (ra) and Ammar Yassir (ra) ran away ? If we stick other numbers does this mean the other shia among the sahaba ran away ?
Since, Aql is major component in your sect, I will use show you how it can use it expose the contradictions in your aqeeda.
Why are 12rs so obsessed by accusing the Sahaba of running away ? The answer is simple. They believe Imam Ali (as) pointed this out in Najh Al Balagha in a letter exchange between himself and Muawaiyah.
While it was the practice of the Holy Prophet (s) that whenever a battle was raged and his companions behaved cowardly or ran away from the battlefield (as in Badr, Uhud and Hunayn) which was usually the case or started making the Muslims nervous (as in Khandaq), he sent members of his family (Bani Hashim) to fight out the battle to protect his companions. (Nahjul Balaagha - Letter 9)
Yet in the Sunni version of this letter which is presented in in the Ansab of al-Baladhuri and the Wa'qat Siffin by al-Minqari, Imam Ali (as) doesn't mention the sahaba running away.
With this in mind if the wars against the Ummavis and Kuffar, only needed a few people for its victory, why did Imam Ali (as) have to do taqiyyah against people who he supposedly claim were cowards in Saqifa ? Why did Imam Ali (as) have to back down in the arbitration after Siffin ? Why did Imam Hassan (as) have to make peace with Muawiyah, if only 4-10 are required to win a war. What happened in Karbala when 72 people were present which exceed the number 8-10, yet in the end Imam Hussain (as) was martyred. In your sect Imam Ali (as) couldn't even protect his wife from those people who you claim always ran away.
Its as if Imam Ali (as) shows Muawiyah that his supporters are not loyal, and then Muawiyah uses it against him and becomes the King.
Please answer this questions and concerns I have about your aqeeda.
Also what is ironic is the Sahabi who narrated the ahadith about Hunain and ran way, later fought under Imam Ali (as) in Siffin.
