I’m by no means a Saudi apologist, quite the contrary really. Those who know know. However, credit where credit is due, especially since I experienced first hand how much the Iranian government and the ‘Ayatollahs’ lie about Saudi Arabia and the Salafi scholars and the Salafi Da’wah.
One lie that the Shia clergy and Shia propagandists keep repeating is that ‘Wahhabis’ (and Saudis of course) hate the Ahlul-Bayt (peace be upon him).
‘Wahhabi’ Landscape (what they won’t show you on Iranian/Shia media)
Let’s start with the landscape of ‘Wahhabistan’ i.e. Saudi Arabia. These Nasibis/Nawasib (enemies of Ahlul-Bayt) detest the Ahlul-Bayt as the Rafidah claim, here the result of such hatred:
Numerous streets in Saudi Arabia are named in honour of the Ahlul-Bayt, the above are just a few. I used to reside in Jordan, a country with a strong Salafi presence. It’s no different over there. And none of that has been done to please any Rafidis or Iran, it is simply based on the Sunni creed and tradition of loving the Ahlul-Bayt minus foolish Rafidi extremism and Ghuluw (exaggeration).
Shias will probably show you some odd school here and there that is named after Yazid ibn Mu’awiyah, as if it is representative. The truth is, the Ahlul-Bayt and major Sahabah (Muhajirun and Ansar) are those whom the vast majority of Sunni/Salafis love and honour, they come first, even in the eyes of those who prefer to keep a lenient or neutral position with the likes of Yazid.
Here some more examples of ‘Nasibis’ doing ‘Nasibi’ stuff:
‘Ali ibn Abi Talib primary school in Riyadh, Najd, Saudi Arabia:
al-Husayn ibn Ali primary school in Riyadh, Najd, Saudi Arabia:
Fatima al-Zahra` School for women for the memorisation of the Qur’an!
These bloody ‘Wahhabis’ are at it again! Excelling at the Qur’an, making the Qommite Ayatullats worse than they already look. All this while honouring the name of Fatimah (may Allah be pleased with her), nurturing the love for her in the hearts of their people.
Fatimah al-Zahra` mosque in the heartland of the ‘Wahhabis’ in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Out of all names they chose the name of Fatimah, that’s what ‘Nasibis’ do in their free time, you know.
The ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib mosque in Riyadh.
Notice that these mosques are all in Riyadh, in the heartland of Najd! I could post hundreds of such pictures from other ‘Wahhabi’ strongholds like Makkah, Madinah, Jeddah, etc. but let’s stick to the homeland of the ‘Wahhabis’, i.e. Najd:
As mentioned earlier, every single street and school and mosque mentioned so far is located in Najd, the heartland of the ‘Wahhabis’ where Shi’ism is as present as Tawhid is in the Vatican of the Catholics in Rome and the Vatican of the Rafidah in Qom.
There are tons of other streets named after the Bani Hashim like ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib, Fatimah al-Zahra`, al-Husayn ibn ‘Ali, al-Hasan ibn ‘Ali and those that have been mostly neglected by the Rafidah due to their ghuluww with their favourite set of Imams, the likes of Hamza Sayyid al-Shuhada`, Ja’far ibn Abi Talib, may Allah be pleased with them all.
There are even streets named after ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib’s (may Allah be pleased with him) sons.
In 2005, in a Saudi province with a Shia minority population of around 25% (ideological descendants of the Iranian Qaramitah Isma’ili Rafidi Shia heretics), the only province with a significant Shia population really (in Iran, there are still majority Sunni provinces), in Al-Ahsa` (Eastern Province), some hateful Shiites vandalised a street name due to their grudge for the name ‘Umar!
The street was named in honour of ‘Othman ibn ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (may Allah be pleased with them), one of the sons of ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib and a brave warrior who was martyred at the battle of Karbala`. The vandalisers smeared the the part ”Othman ibn’ with red colour so that ‘Ali’ ibn Abi Talib could be read only:
Rafidism is not based on the love of Ahlul-Bayt, it’s based on the misuse of a certain group of members of the Ahlul-Bayt and Bani Hashim (especially the Imams who are allegedly descendaning from a Persian princess i.e. from the fourth Imam onwards), they have no respect for many members of the Ahlul-Bayt. Little do they know that ‘Ali loved names such as ‘Umar, ‘Uthman, etc. unlike the Rafidah who despise what ‘Ali loved (no matter with what intention he named his children):
Many major Sunni-Salafi scholars around the world carry the names of the Ahlul-Bayt, including in Saudi Arabia of course, here just a few examples:
The ‘father of the Wahhabis’ and his attitude towards the Ahlul-Bayt (peace be upon them)
The biggest Shia bogeyman of our modern time must be Shaykh Muhammad ibn Abdel-Wahhab and his Da’wah. The Shaykh – like every other scholar – was a mere fallible man and received his share of fair criticism, but some of his die-hard enemies, like the Quburi Pseudo-Sufis and the Rafidah went into extremes in their criticism (some even accused him of claiming Prophethood!) and have demonised beyond recognition.
Of course, it is claimed by Shias that Shaykh ibn Abdel-Wahhab (and the ‘Wahhabi-Salafis’) was a vicious Nasibi who hated the Ahlul-Bayt with a passion. I myself was brainwashed with such lies. The problem is that most people do not do any research.
Shaykh Muhammad ibn Abdel-Wahhab (may Allah have mercy on him) never uttered a single bad word about the Ahlul-Bayt, on the contrary, he praised them on numerous occasions and in his books. Like all other Sunni-Salafi scholars he emphasised that loving the Ahlul-Bayt is an integral part of Sunni-Salafi creed, it always has been.
Shiites are not told that that Muhammad ibn Abdel-Wahhab loved the Ahlul-Bayt so much that he named his eldest son Ali. He also had two other sons whom he named al-Hasan and al-Husayn, and one daughter whom he named Fatimah. (Durar al-Saniya 12/19).
His kunya (nickname) was Abu al-Hasan, the father of Ali, because Arabs call their sons the names they like, if they like a person, then they call their children the name of the person they like.
This man literally named his children after the Ahlul-Kisa` but as we know, If it is not Ghuluw (exaggeration) then the Rafidah want nothing to do with it and it bores them, their scholars even demonise Sunni academics as ‘Wahhabis’ who write in praise of Ahlul-Bayt. So expect everything from these Qommite Ghulat and false claimants of Ahlul-Bayt.
The Shaykh wrote some excellent books that are widely available in English, however, the following two gems haven’t been translated yet (I encourage every Arabic reader to download them and study them):
1. Risalah fi Rad ala al-Rafidah
This book is compiled by Shaykh Khalid ibn Ahmad al-Zahrani, a Salafi scholar who compiled all the statements of Shaykh Muhammad ibn Abdel-Wahhab and the rest of the Imams of the Najdi Da’wah in praise of the Ahlul-Bayt.
The book includes beautiful statements of Shaykh Muhammad ibn Abdel-Wahhab in praise of Ahlul-Bayt. He praises Ali, Fatimah, and refers to al-Husayn as a pious martyr whose tragedy has been afflicted by the Rafidah Shia and the Nawasib, both heretics whom he harshly rebukes and criticises and declares as principle enemies of Ahlus-Sunnah.
And that’s not it. ‘Wahhabi Nasibis’ also like to give lectures in praise of the Ahlul-Bayt, educating the masses and instilling the love of Ahlul-Bayt in their hearts.
Ahlul-Bayt minus Rafidi nonsense and heresies
I leave you with an excellent series of lectures by yet another ‘Wahhabi-Salafi’ Saudi scholas who has educated millions of Sunnis around the world on the lives of great Islamic personalities, including a series on the Ahlul-Bayt.
Learn (in an academic way) about and appreciate and honour the Ahlul-Bayt and the Imams of Aal Muhammad (peace be upon them) minus Rafidi superstitions, kufr, zandaqat, and ghuluw and wailing nonsense.
The speaker is Dr. Muhammad Musa Al-Shareef (a Ph.D. holding pilot by profession). He was born in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, and graduated from the Faculty of Shari`ah, Imam Muhammad ibn Saud Islamic University, in 1408 A.H. He obtained his M.A. and Ph.D. in the Qur’an and the Sunnah from Faculty of Usul Ad-Din (Theology) Umm Al-Qura University. He is an assistant professor in the Department of Islamic Studies, King Abdul-Aziz University.
