Mirza Husayn Nuri

(Redirected from Haji Nuri)

Shaykh Mīrzā Ḥusayn b. Muḥammad Taqī b. ʿAlī Muḥammad Nūrī Ṭabrisī (Arabic: شیخ میرزا حسین بن محمد تقی بن علي محمد نوري طبرسي) (b. 1254/1838- d. 1320/1902), known as Muḥaddith Nurī (Arabic: محدث نوري), was an eminent Shi'a Muhaddith (narrator) of the 14th/19th century. Religious scholars and his students eulogized him. He is well known for his books Mustadrak al-Wasa'il and Fasl al-khitab fi tahrif kitab Rabb al-Arbbab (The last word about distortion of the Book of the Lord of the Lords). In the latter, by quoting some hadiths, he has tried to prove that although the Qur'an is the exact words of God and nothing was added to it and it has not changed, some verses were excluded during its compilation (distortion by reduction), despite the fact that they are preserved by righteous people. The distribution of the book triggered a wave of backlash against him, causing him a myriad of troubles, and even raising criticisms of both Shi'a and Sunni scholars. There are books written in rejecting his viewpoints.
