Beliefs; Cognition about God’s Caliph on earth; About prophets and their virtues
1- From page 250 to page 253 [of the book “Return to Islam”] the infallibility of the Prophets is discussed. The Imamiyyah Shia consider the Prophets infallible from any kind of mistake or sin, either major or minor, intentionally or inadvertently, before and after the prophecy, and consider the mentioned cases about sin or their honors asking forgiveness from the kind of failure to do the better. What is his honor’s opinion about this belief? 2- In page 252, it is mentioned about Prophet David (peace be upon him) having ninety-nine wives, asked his brother to divorce his only wife in order to marry her. The question that rises is how can an infallible Prophet have such a request from his brother?! What is the justification for such an action?! It is not mentioned like this in the Shia’s commentaries, but it is quoted by Imam Reza (peace be upon him) that his Excellency David (peace be upon him), since those two persons came up from the wall of his house and quickly came to him for judgment, became anxious and although he made a right judgment, he did not follow the principles of judgment due to the anxiety and uneasiness, meaning he questioned the accused and did not ask any question from the claimer. As a result, having noticed such an issue, he asked forgiveness. Please explain more about this issue.
