Sunni Iranians with the son of the lion of Pakistan: Ehsan Elahi Zaheer

Ehsan Elahi Zaheer (Urdu: احسان الہی ظہیر) (31 May 1945 – 30 March 1987). He hails Sialkot and was born into a deeply religious trading Punjabi family of the Sethi clan. Shaykh Ehsan was a polyglot and fluent in Urdu, Punjabi, Arabic, and Persian. He studied under many students, most importantly Shaykh Ibn Baz.
In 2012, Shaykh Ibtisam Elahi Zaheer, the son of the lion of Islam and Ahlus-Sunnah of Pakistan, Ehsan Elahi Zaheer (may Allah have mercy upon him), visited us in London, UK, in our modest studio (Toweed TV, formerly known as Wesal Farsi TV).

My Journey From Shi’ism To Islam/Sunnah

In the name of Allah,

I was born in Iran, in the Persian town of Shemiran, in the mid-80s into a Shia family (father’s side traditionally conservative and religious, well, at least once upon a time, mother’s side less religious, since like forever). My father and mother’s side of my family claims Arab ancestry, my grandfather was very proud of that and always emphasised on our (alleged) ancestry. Arab tribes did indeed settle all over Iran after the Islamic conquest, there is no doubt about that, however, I’ve always been very sceptic about Hashimite ancestry claims, and thus have always introduce myself as a Muslims who was born into an Iranian Persian Shia family first and foremost. Anyways, I mention this because I am from the Abbasi family (Abbasi is my actual surname).

Arab TV channels interviews Ebn Hussein

I was invited on the TV channel (الأئمة) of the legend Mohammad Saber (Egypt) who interviewed me about my story (from Shi’ism to Islam/Sunnah).
Honestly, I’ve never spoken a full hour (in one session) in Arabic to anybody, not even to my wife (native Arabic speaker), let alone to an Egyptian (fast pace speakers). It’s not easy but possible and fun. You learn from your mistakes (which I definitely made a lot), and what is important is the Da’wah.

Shemran: The Shia Town That Gave Me Birth

My birthplace is a 100% Shia town (well, it changed today with many Iranian Sunnis from all over Iran having flocked to the capital, some areas of Tehran boast now entire Sunni neighbourhoods, Al-Hamdulillah),of course most of its population was Sunnis just few centuries ago (before the predecessors of the Khomeinists and the modern-day Shia clergy i.e. the Anti-Sunni Safavids, slaughtered and expelled as many Sunnis as they possibly could) called Shemrān (also known as Shemirān and in local dialect it’s called Shemroon).

Interview with the grandson of the Ex-Shia Ayatollah Borqei

Here a recording where I interviewed a good old friend of mine who is none other than the grandson of Ex-Shia Grand Ayatollah Abul-Fadhl Borqei (may Allah have mercy upon him). This is an exclusive interview for the first time in the English language about his (brother Mohsin, the grandson) grandfather’s fascinating life and how he left Twelver Shiism, started refuting it and his own previous Shia works, as well as translating Ibn Taymiyyah’s devastating refutation of Twelver Shiism- Minhaj as-Sunnah to Farsi, his harassment by the Iranian regime and much more. Don’t miss it!

Answering a repeated question:

Wesal Farsi Memories

Allah, Allah… the following clip is from our archive I just stumbled upon. In it I’m (Ex-Shia) interviewing another Ex-Shia (Khaled Ansari), whom I consider one of my teachers.

Between 2011-2014 I moderated my daily live show (in defence of Ahlus-Sunnah in Persian/Farsi) on Wesal Farsi TV (name changed to Towheed TV /


As I explained in the following link there is tons of material (Ex-Shia interviews from all over Iran) on our hard drives that haven’t been touched/edited or even released on youtube, let alone being proper translated:

That’s because unlike Rafidi/Khomeinists propaganda, we are not getting any ‘Saudi-Wahhabi petrodollars’. Anyway the following clip is in Persian/Farsi and the very set up couldn’t had been more surreal:

Host: Me Ebn Hussein (Hassan Shemrani): Ex-Shia from Iran, Shemran
Ustadh: Khaled Ansari (not his real name): Ex-Shia from Iran, Gilan

And trust me, we are not alone.

Ustadh Khaled himself has translated numerous articles and book in refutation of Rafidism and has refuted many of their Turban-heads, one of the sharpest minds and most sophistacted experts on Rafidism I’ve ever met. May Allah bless and protect it.

This is the stuff that needs to go viral and translated, yet Ahlus-Sunnah are slumbering while the enemy, the Rafidah are supporting and parading every fool and Zindiq (like Tijani, Shehata and other shaved Kilab) as ‘great former Sunni scholars’. They have these clown and we have these gems and Muwahhids yet the Sunnis themsleves haven’t heard of them (let alone open-minded Shiites).

Allah Himself will support those who support His Cause
