Al-Khu’i does not know Sulaim?


One of the innovators made the claim that Sulaim Ibn Qais Al-Hilali (r.) was unknown according to Abu Al-Qasim Al-Khu’i. As source, the accuser cited the 9th volume of Mu’jam Rijal Al-Hadith on page 228.


The servant of Umar has lied!

Abu Al-Qasim Al-Khu’i writes: “And Ibn Al-Ghada’iri said: “Sulaim Ibn Qais Al-Hilali Al-Amiri reports about Abu Abdillah, Al-Hasan, Al-Husain and Ali Ibn Al-Husain (a.) and this famous book and the book of our companions is attributed to him. They say: “Sulaim is not known and not mentioned in any report.” [Mu’jam Rijal Al-Hadith, Volume 9 Page 228]

قال السيد أبو القاسم الخوئي رحمه الله: وقال ابن الغضائري سليم بن قيس الهلالي العامري روى عن أبي عبد الله والحسن والحسين وعلي بن الحسين عليهم السلام وينسب إليه هذا الكتاب المشهور وكتاب أصحابنا يقولون إن سليما لا يعرف ولا ذكر في خبر

Abu Al-Qasim Al-Khu’i writes: “Sulaim Ibn Qais is trustworthy (Thiqah) by himself, highly valued (Jalil) and holds a great position (Azim). In this regard, the testimony of Al-Barqi is sufficient that he is one of the faithful companions of the Commander of the Faithful (a.). This is confirmed by the citation of An-Nu’mani about his book and the great scholar reported it already in the first volume and gave his judgment that he is righteous (Adil). As for Ibn Dawud Al-Hilli, who mentions him in the first two volumes, no valid point of view is known for this. Moreover, according to An-Nu’mani, the book of Sulaim Ibn Qais belongs to the principles that are authentic (Sahih). Rather, it is one of his most powerful principles and, on the whole, everything about it is authentic (Sahih) and has been transmitted by the Infallible (a.), whose confirmation and acceptance of his tradition cannot be ignored, and this is also mentioned by the author of Al-Wasa’il (Al-Hurr Al-Amili).”[Mu’jam Rijal Al-Hadith, Volume 9 page 230]

قال السيد أبو القاسم الخوئي رحمه الله: ان سليم بن قيس – في نفسه – ثقة جليل القدر عظيم الشأن، ويكفي في ذلك شهادة البرقي بأنه من الاولياء من أصحاب أمير المؤمنين عليه السلام، المؤيدة بما ذكره النعماني في شأن كتابه، وقد أورده العلامة في القسم الاول وحكم بعدالته، وأما ابن داود فقد ذكره في القسمين الاول ٧٣١ والثاني ٢١٩ ولا نعرف لذلك وجها صحيحا. الثانية: أن كتاب سليم بن قيس – على ما ذكره النعماني – من الاصول المعتبرة بل من أكبرها، وأن جميع ما فيه صحيح قد صدر من المعصوم عليه السلام أو ممن لابد من تصديقه وقبول روايته، وعده صاحب الوسائل
