Sending salawat upon the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وصحبه وسلم) is from the greater deeds of ‘ibadah; and making it in abundance is among the reasons to attain immense goodness and invite blessings to oneself, as well as deterrence against evil and calamities. Sending salutations upon the Prophet (ﷺ) is to invoke Allah alone (as praying to anyone other than Allah is polytheism) to bless and raise the rank of the Prophet (ﷺ) even further.
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).
A beautiful Arabic proverb states:
الصراخ على قدر الألم
‘The greater the pain the louder the scream‘
This saying perfectly describes the reaction of the Rafidah Shia – especially their clerics and polemicists – whenever Sunnis write in defense and in praise of the Ahlul-Bayt (minus Rafidi Zandaqat/heresies).
Nothing puts the Rafidah in more panic and hysteria than learned Sunnis purifying the Ahlul-Bayt from the filth of Rafidism by educating the masses on the historical (Sunni) version of the Ahlul-Bayt, an Ahlul-Bayt minus Rafidite Ghuluw (exaggeration) and Zandaqat (heresies), an Ahlul-Bayt minus the cancer that is Tashayyu’ (Shi’ism).
In the books of Ahlus-Sunnah, the Imams that the Shia falsely claim are brave and honourable Imams from Ahlul-Bayt, unlike the Shia version where they are portrayed as two-faced Taqiyyah mongering hypocrites who one day teach thousands of students in the Prophet’s (ﷺ) mosque, but at the same time never declare their so-called divine authority (upon which the salvation of the Ummah and mankind hinges) except to a bunch of dubious companions (ghulat/extremists and heretics, mainly from Kufa and Qom).
The Pakstiani scholar Mawlana Nāfiʿ (may Allah have mercy on him)’s is the author of the famous work book called ‘Ruḥamā Baynahum’, a four-volume exposition on the amicable relationship between the Companions (Sahabah), particularly between Abū Bakr, ʿUmar, ʿUthman, and the Ahl al-Bayt. A critically important work that makes sense of the erroneous and malicious Rafidi Shia claims that there was nothing but enmity and grudge between the ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib and his family and the rest of the Sahabah.
The rancour which the Shia harbour for the noble Sahabah (رضي الله عنهم) needs no introduction and it is quite commonplace to find them levelling unfounded tenuous accusations against the esteemed companions and students of the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) on account of their bigotry. One such accusation has been levelled against the Sahabah in general that they all became apostate after the demise of the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ).

بسم الله والحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على نبينا وإمامنا وسيدنا رسول الله وعلى جميع الأنبياء والمرسلين، وعلى أصحابه المرضيين الميامين، وعلى أزواجه الطاهرات أمهات المؤمنين، وعلى ذريته وآل بيته الطيبين، وعلى إخوانه وحزبه إلى يوم الدين. أما بعد،
The Imamites, the Twelver Shia, have filled their books with spurious narrations (fabrications and lies) that are attributed to the Ahlul-Bayt (عليهم السلام) and are diametrically opposed to the Qur’an, Sunnah and historical facts.
The Twelver Shia sect is based on mass-Takfir of the companions of the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ), particularly the chief of the Muhajirun and Ansar (may Allah be pleased with them). Of course, this extreme and heretical belief stems from the Twelver belief that the Sahaba (companions) usurped the political authority (Khilafah) of ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (may Allah be pleased with him). That belief in return is justified by half-baked and flimsy pieces of ‘evidence’ (either outright weak and fabricated narrations or decontextualised and misconstrued authentic narrations) that the Shia provide from ‘Sunni sources’ (cherry-picking of the Sunni hadith corpus).

In Rafidism (Twelver Shiism) the Jews are whitewashed of the murder of the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ). Who do the Shia blame instead? None other than his companions/wives of course!
This makes Twelver Shi’ism the only sect out of all deviant sects that lifts the blame from the Jews and shifts it to the Sahaba. In this article, I’ll be dissecting their spurious pieces of evidence one by one with the Help of Allah.
Hafiz ibn Hajr quotes Ali ibn Abi Talib رضي الله عنه:
One of the most famous quotes by Imam Abu Zur’ah al-Razi (one of the Imams of the Salaf of Persian descent) with regards to the Rafidah Shia:
‘If you see a man belittling anyone from the Companions of the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) then know that he is a Zindeeq(heretic who claims Islam i.e. Munafiq). That is because we believe that the Messenger (ﷺ) is true, the Qur’an is true and those who conveyed this Qur’an and the Sunnah to us were the Companions of the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ). Rather what the heretics want to do is criticise our trustworthy narrators so they can nullify the Book and the Sunnah, they are more deserving of being criticised since they are the Zanaadiqa (heretics).’ (Narrated by al-Khateeb al-Baghdadi in Tarikh al-Baghdad)
How true this statement is when one considers common and foolish Rafidi reasonings like the following:
Imam Hussain was killed by Yazid…who was appointed by Mu’awiyah…who was appointed by ‘Uthman (who appointed Muawiyah Governor of Syria)…they stop here, wheras if one were to follow they zindeeqi logic one could go further and say: and the Prophet (ﷺ) befriended the likes of ‘Uthman and honoured him twice by giving ‘Uthman two of his daughters…and the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) was sent by Allah…so let’s blame all of them, wal-‘Ayadhubillah!
By Abu Al-Abbas al-Shami and Ebn Hussein (Hassan Shemrani)
Twelver orthodoxy today asserts that those who fought ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (may Allah be pleased with him) were apostates, they excommunicate most of the Sahabah anyway, but in particular the likes of Mu’awiyah, Talha, al-Zubayr, ‘Aisha (may Allah be pleased with them) and other companions of the Prophet (ﷺ) who were in any shape or form opposed ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib.
Allah the Exalted – whilst also rebuking the Sahabah (رضي الله عنهم) at times, just as He has rebuked His Prophet (ﷺ) in the Qur’an – has introduced the Sahabah (رضي الله عنهم) , particularly their chiefs (Mujarioon and Ansar), as role-models (verse 9:100, no such verse about 12 Imams whatsoever) for all Muslims.
The Ahlul-Bayt are part of the body of the Sahabah, yet the Rafidi religion views the Sahabah (رضي الله عنهم) as an evil entity, they perform mass-takfir against them and spare an insignificant minority of them.
The Rafidah Imamites sometimes cite a statement by Shaykh al-Islam ibn Taymiyyah (رحمه الله) from his Minhaj al-Sunnah (download the abridged version in English here>>>) where he allegedly confessed that most Sahabah and their students (Tabi’in) hated the Sahabi, ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (رضي الله عنه):
Imagine a king, a rightful king, who got dethroned by a bunch of thugs who conspired against him and eventually usurped his rights (and killed his wife and unborn child in the process of all of that).
Al-Hasan and al-Husayn (رضوان الله وسلامه عليهما) believed & fought for the sake of reviving Shurā and Khilāfah and not Persian-Sasanian like heredity Shia Imāmah.
‘Who is the Imam of your time’ the Rafidah always ask Sunnis in discussions regarding Imamah. ‘Whoever died without an Imam he dies a death of jahilyyah’ they always quote (here>>> a thorough refutation of this and similar report) Now one thing is for sure, our Imam certainly isn’t some mythical ‘Mahdi’ who last time was seen in the Sirdab (basement/cellar) of Samarra (100% Sunni city) in Iraq and who is guiding nobody and nothing due to his so-called occultation.
The Mother of the Believers, Aishah (may Allah be pleased with her), not allowing Hasan ibn ‘Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) to be buried next to the Prophet (ﷺ) is a fabrication, not a reliable report. Shias rely on these lies to fuel their hatred for the wives and companions of the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ).
A central tenet of the Shia doctrine is the rejection of the first of the Rightly Guided Caliphs, Abu Bakr (رضّى الله عنه), who supposedly stole the Caliphate from Ali (رضّى الله عنه). However, the Shia opinion of Abu Bakr’s character (رضّى الله عنه) does not match up with the Quran (and the associated historical events) which actually mentions Abu Bakr (رضّى الله عنه) in a very positive light.
Are you aware of the famous hadith of Muadh ibn Jabal (ra) who was sent to the great people of Yemen to teach them Islam and its fundamentals?
I once had a discussion with a Rafidi telling him that calling oneself ‘dog of Ahlul-Bayt’ (or bitches for their females…) is repulsive (yet common and advocated by their top Ayatullats, just like some Sufis do), Ahlul-Bayt are free of impurity, simple.
Fact: Most Sahaba did NOT participate in the fitan and civil wars after the Prophet’s (s) demise, and even those who did were upon the same creed as Ali ibn Abi Talib (r) for the simple fact that (unlike Rafidi propaganda) the battles of Jamal and Siffin were not disputes about religion, rather they were political disputes (revenge for Othman etc.).
تدبروا قول الفاروق عمر (رضي الله عنه و أرضاه) عن المجوس قبل ١٤٠٠ سنة
By Dawud Walid
Yasser Qadhi and his Rafidi friends: Daesh Terrorist Group were inspired by the Najdi Dawah.
الحقيقة: ارتد الناس إلا الصحابة وبعض القبائل العربية.
أسطورة الشيعية التكفيرية:ارتد الناس إلا ثلاثة نفر
The truth: The people all became apostates SAVE for the Sahabah (mainly city dwellers i.e. Makkah, Madinah etc.) and some Arab tribes.
Twelver Shia Imamism myth: “The people all became apostates after the Prophet’s death except…
The people of the Sunnah are the saved and victorious sect; they are balanced, a middle path between the Khawarij/Nawasib and Rawafid heretics. Both are extremists, one group due to their hatred of our master ‘Ali (ra) the other for their Ghuluww (excessiveness) regarding him.
