Pearl of Wisdom

'alzzaz narrated, 'al-Rida (AS) went out to await the arrival of some people who were coming to visit him when the time for prayer set in. He went towards a nearby fort and took shade under a rock, saying, 'Announce the call for prayer.' I replied, 'Why don't we wait for our companions to catch up with us?' He replied, may Allah forgive you. Do not ever delay the prayer from the earliest moment of its onset to the latest without a good excuse. You must always pray at the earliest time', so I announced the call for prayer and we prayed.'

Question : #866 Category: Shia Sunni Dialogue
Subject: Um Kalthoom
Question: Salamu Alaykum,

Sunni scholars attempt to downplay the Shia faith and their beliefs by insisting that Imam Ali (a.s) had married his daughter to Umar ibn al Khattab. They insist that this proves the piety and faithfulness of Umar since a man like Imam Ali (a.s) agreed to hand his daughter in marriage to him. Is this a true event or is it fabricated. I have read some literature suggesting that Umar was married to a different Um Kalthum. Can you please explain the matter from the Shia Faith under the guidance of the true scholars of Islam. If it is true, what would be the logical reasoning of Imam Ali (a.s) behind it?

Our Sheikh will respond to this question in the coming days Insha'Allah, check again soon
