The Fourteen Infallibles: A Compilation of Speeches and Lectures

In Imamiyya theological circles the members of the household of the Holy Prophet (s) are referred to as the fourteen infallibles. Namely, the Prophet (s) himself, his daughter Fatima (as), his son-in-law Ali (as), then his grandsons Hassan (as) and Hussein (as) and the nine descendants from Hussein (as): Ali ibn Hussein (as), Muhammad ibn Ali (as), Ja’far ibn Muhammad (as), Musa ibn Ja’far (as), Ali ibn Musa (as), Muhammad ibn Ali (as), Ali ibn Muhammad (as), Hassan ibn Ali (as) and the Messiah known as al-Mahdi (ajfs).

The Ten Granted Paradise

Dr. Nakshawani in the following work not only corrects the widespread misconception that the Shi’i intellectual tradition despises and curses all Companions, but also clarifies the reason for which some Companions were considered people of Paradise in the Shi’i (and usually the Sunni) tradition. In a few places, the author notes reasons for which the Shi’i tradition does not venerate certain Companions. Discussing controversial history as it relates to Companions and the ahl al-bayt remains a difficult enterprise, where methods and premises, let alone conclusions, substantially differ from scholar to scholar. As an expert of the Shi’i tradition, Dr. Nakshawani presents relevant Shi’i narratives for non-specialists who would otherwise be unaware of them. Thus, the following biographies fill a gap in knowledge about Companions not only revered in the Shi’i tradition, but according to the collective memory of pro-Alid Sunni and Shi’i authors, granted Paradise.

Islam: Liberté – Egalité – Fraternité

L'ouvrage du Docteur Sayed Ammar Nakshawani est un ouvrage d'une importance particulière : voici l'œuvre d'un jeune intellectuel et savant musulman chiite qui vit en Angleterre et a étudié les sciences religieuses au moyen-orient : son approche des problèmes de notre temps à travers un retour aux sources et un regard nouveau sur les principes fondamentaux de l'islam est donc très intéressante. Il est d'ailleurs étonnant qu'un jeune homme ayant fait toute sa formation à l'étranger consacre un ouvrage sur l'islam en france : c'est une preuve, s'il en était besoin, qu'un 'étranger' peut finalement aussi dire les réalités de l'islam en france, qui doit être une réalité et l'est d'ailleurs déjà aujourd'hui.

La vraie révélation de l'ouvrage, et son intuition, est que ce qui permet aux Occidentaux de confession musulmane d'être complètement partie prenante, totalement citoyens, et véritables agents de changement et de contribution de leur société, n'est pas simplement leur connaissance du contexte, mais aussi celle des fondamentaux de leur religion qui – lorsqu'ils sont approchés dans leur essence et compris dans leur finalité – mettent en évidence le fait qu'une femme ou un homme de confession musulmane, chiite ou sunnite, doit – partant de ces fondamentaux – trouver les moyens de vivre bien, de se sentir bien là où il est, et de nourrir simplement le respect des lois du pays, le sentiment d'appartenance, c'est-à-dire cette psychologie, cette loyauté au pays où elle ou il se trouve.
