I am known as Ebn Hussein and Hassan Shemrani. I am a convert from Shi’ism to Sunni Islam (a detailed account about my story can be found here>>>).
I am a plyglot (English, German, Persian and Arabic) and my field of specialty is based on the research of Tashayyu’ (Shi’ism), Tasawwuf (Sufism), and the Islamic (Shia and Sunni) history of Iran.
I am also a teacher (Qur’an and languages) and pieceful to all those who are pieceful to me, irrespective of their religious or whatever backround.
I am not a pious person, although I strive to be one of them and love those who are from them, or as it is attributed to Imam Shafi’i:
احب الصالحين ولست منهم
“I love the righteous, although I’m not of them.”
Or in the words of Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah:
“Verily, I constantly renew my Islam until this very day, as up to now, I do not consider myself to have ever been a good Muslim.”
[Narrated by Ibn al-Qayyim in ‘Madarij as-Salikin’; 1/218]
I love Allah and His Messenger (ﷺ) and the companions (Sahabah) of the Prophet, especially his Ahlul-Bayt and the chiefs of the Muhajirun and Ansar i.e. Abu Bakr, ‘Umar, ‘Uthman and ‘Ali (may Allah be pleased with them). However, I despise ghuluw (exaggeration) and zandaqah (heresies) in their name just like they themselves did:
It is reported that al-Hasan ibn al-Hasan ibn ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (may Allah be pleased with them) – said to a person from the Rafidah, the extreme Shi’ites:
“Love us, but if we disobey Allah, then hate us; for if Allah was going to benefit anyone because of his relation to the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ), without obedience [to Allah], He would have benefitted the mother and father [of the Prophet].” [Dhahabi, Siyar A’lam Al-Nubala` 4:486]
My entire da’wah is based on the defense of Islam (that is not in need of me but I am in need of it) and those who have been vilified by the Sahabah-abusers. I have given an oath to my Lord, my Creator, Allah, that my pen shall never dry up and that I shall never stop speaking the truth as long as I’m breathing, with the permission of Allah.
أنا تمرة الأحبابِ حنظلةُ العِدا
أنا غصّةٌ في حلقِ من عاداني
المحبُ لأهل سنةِ أحمدٍ
Those who understand it understand.
