About

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.

In short:

أنا تمرة الأحبابِ حنظلةُ العِدا
أنا غصّةٌ في حلقِ من عاداني

المحبُ لأهل سنةِ أحمدٍ

Those who understand it understand.
