The hadith of calling for invisible helpers in the wilderness has several wordings and is often often misused by the grave worshippers (Quburis) in order to justify their shirk and ghuluw.

Judeo-Shiite Grave Worship VS Umar Ibn al-Khattab – The Tomb of Daniel In Iran

The great achievements of a fallible man – no matter how great, even if he is a Shaykh al-Islam – do not blind the Muslim or lead him to fanaticism. In the words of Imam Malik (may Allah have mercy on him) who one day pointed towards the grave of the Final Messenger of Allah ():

The Most Mendacious And The Most Shirk-practicing Of All Sects

By Ebn Hussein

No wonder the grave worshippers hate Shaykh al-Islam Abu al-‘Abbas ibn Taymiyyah, may Allah have mercy upon him. I’d hate him too if he had exposed my religion to the max. What a legend, around 600 years ago he described these batini zanadiqah and mushrikun exactly how they are to this very day (if not worse).

A Poem about ‘Wahhabism’ by an Iranian Athari scholar

By Ebn HusseinShaykh Imran b. Ali al-Harithi al-Shafi’i ( للعَلاَّمة عِمْرَانَ بْنِ عليِّ بْنِ رِضْوَانَ الحارثيِّ الشَّافِعيِّ الفَارِسِيِّ اللِّنْجِيِّ) was an Athari-Shafi’i scholar of Arab-Persian descent from the beautiful south of Iran, Hormozgan, the city of Bandar Lengeh (a Shafi’i stronghold in Iran to this very day).

“But my Pir/Imam whom I invoke is dependent on Allah, I don’t intend to worship him!” – The Istiqlal Excuse

Moroccan Sufis invoking a buried saint for all their needs and wishes.

As for the Sufi (Barelvi)/Rafidi get-out clause: ‘with the permission of Allah’ (a divine formula that they misuse):

Can The Dead Hear And Does That Prove The Legitimacy Of The Heresy Of Praying To The Buried Saints?

There is a valid difference of opinion amongst the scholars of Ahl al-Sunnah regarding the issue of the dead being able to hear the living and to what extent. However, both camps agree that praying to the living, the dead or Prophets, martyrs, etc. is strictly forbidden and the mother of all shirk (polytheism).

The Efforts Of The Scholars Of Yemen In Refutation Of Grave Veneration

The scholars of Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Athar In Yemen have provided one of the best works in refutation of the Qubooris such as the Zaydis, Twelvers, and Sufis (all three are united in the heresy of building lavish structures over graves and venerating the buried saints).

Grave Veneration According To The Four Sunni Schools: A Means To Shirk

In my previous article, I’ve presented you a plethora of evidence proving that the Rafidi-Sufi ‘proof’ for the claim that Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal (may Allah have mercy upon him) permitted touching and kissing of the Prophet’s (ﷺ) grave for the sake of seeking tabarruk (blessings) is nothing but a spoof that opposes the entire Hanbali school and the more authentic reports by Imam Ahmad regarding this issue.

Did Imam Ahmad Permit Kissing and Touching The Grave Of The Prophet (ﷺ)?

This is actually a widespread shubhah (spurious argument) that is regularly circulated on Arab (and Persian) websites and social media by Rawafid and (unsurprisingly) Sufis alike.

The Burdah Qasidah – Free of Shirk And Ghuluw?

One of the excuses that the extremists (ghulat) from amongst the mystic Sufis and Rafidah employ in order to justify their heresies, is the claim that their blatant kufriyat are merely metaphors, poetry, etc. With these excuses, almost everything can be justified and has been justified and attributed to the Prophet (), his Ahlul-Bayt, and the rest of the Awliya under the pretext of ‘loving and honouring them.’ With such excuses, the Rafidah and Mutasawwifah even justify referring to themselves as dogs (i.e. as in being loyal) of their favourite shaykhs, imams, pirs, etc.

Do Sunnis Send Incomplete Salutations (Salam and Salawat) Upon The Prophet (ﷺ)?

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.

The ‘Wahhabis’ And The Demolition Of The Four Maqamat

What are the four Maqamat?

During  (and before) Ottoman rule, for hundreds of years, daily prayers inside al-Masjid al-Haram in Makkah were conducted at different times according to the four most widely accepted Sunni Schools of jurisprudence (madhhab), and at four different locations of the Masjid. Each school of thought had basically its own Mihrab!

An old photograph of the al-Masjid al-Haram and the four Maqamat and Mihrabs for each four school of thought. The ‘Wahhabis’ got rid of this evil Bid’ah.

A real Husayni invokes none but Allah!

No doubt, al-Husayn ibn ‘Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) always invoked Allah alone and taught others to do so.

No doubt, al-Husayn ibn ‘Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) never raised flags of shirk and slogans such as ‘Ya Husayn’, rather his slogan and that of the companions were slogans of Tawhid (such as ‘ya Allah’ and the Takbir that Sunnis are known for).

Al-Husayn never said ‘ya myself madad’ nor ‘ya ‘Ali madad’, rather he prayed to Allah alone, so do Sunnis.

Sunnis are the true Husaynis, they are upon the Tawhid of al-Husayn, Ali ibn Abi Talib, the family of the Prophet (ﷺ):

The Shaykh al-Islam of Isfahan (Persia) on the sound Salafi-Athari creed concerning the attributes of Allah

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Abul-Qasim al-Taymi al-Isfahani al-Shafi’i (457- 535 H) was a major authority of Ahlus-Sunnah, one of the Shuyukh of al-Ibn al-Sam’ani. He studied in Isfahan (Sunni stronghold in pre-Rafidi-Safawi Persia) and amongst his teacher was a female, ‘Aishah bint al-Hassan al-Warkaniyyah al-Isfahaniyyah, a praised and reliable transmitter of Hadith. He also studied in Baghdad (Iraq), Nayshabur (Persia, Khorasan), and Ray (modern-day Tehran). He was buried in Isfahan (the graves of many classical Sunni scholars that exist all over Iran were desecrated by the anti-Sunni Rafidhi Twelver Shia Safavid empire and its spiritual descendants).

Clothing conforming to Islam VS the myth of Islamic clothing

There is no doubt that traditional attire in the lands of the Muslims is beautiful and should be maintained. However, many Muslims hold unjustifiable (at worst) or accepted (at best) opinions and try to shove them down the throats of others as the golden truth.


You have the Pseudo-Sufis who literally wear turbans with sandal pins (‘of the Prophet’) on their heads (and even cover their places of worship with it!) and constantly rant about how their evil boogeyman, the ‘Najdi-Vahhabis’, have abandoned wearing the holy turban (not true, meany Atharis wear Turbans in lands were turbans are traditional like Mauretania, Sudan, Yemen, etc.).

THE CLERICAL GARB OF THE RAFIDAH – A BID’AH TAKEN FROM THE POLYTHEISTS

The worst bid’ah with regards to clothing is that of the Rafidah (and some Sufis) who have institutionalised the hideous bid’ah of clerical attire that is literally designated for a specific class of society i.e. the clergy.
This is an ugly bid’ah taken from other polytheists (Church, etc.) and started during the Safavid take-over of Persia (when modern-day Iran was forced from a majority Sunni country into a majority Rafidi Shia one) and is ever since an essential part of their religious institutions (‘scientific seminaries/al-Hawzat al-‘Ilmiyyah’) and those who graduate from them (or are given the ‘blessing’ of wearing the Rafidi turban by one of their scholars).

The Invocation of the saints – The practice of the pagan polytheists

Twenty-three years of Prophetic da’wah, the call of Islam and Tawhid, was not meant to replace the excessive saint veneration of various polytheists (like the Christians) with a set of new saints who can be invoked in du’a.

Shaykh al-Islam Abul-‘Abbas ibn Taymiyyah (rh) says:

Yasir Kazi (‘Qadhi’) and the Arab Sufis of Hijaz – The People of Hatim al-‘Awni

 
Hatim al-‘Awni with Yasir Qadhi (left) and with the Saudi Rafidi Khabtih Ahmad Salman who openly declares the Muhajiroon and Sahabah as traitors and misguided folks who abandoned the very mother of all foundations of the religion (‘Ali’s divine authority/Wilayah as per Rafidism)

Before you read: Remember, you don’t need to be a zealous ‘Salafi’ (of the hizbi type)  to oppose and call out the falsehood and heresies of deviants who masquerade as traditionalists. Salafi-burnout has caused some to fall into other extremes. Be aware and don’t become a tool.

Shattering the mirage that sacred knowledge can only be taken from the Ahlul-Bayt al-Athar

By former Shia and convert to Islam/Sunnah, Ebn Hussein.

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.

Allah ‘Sits Cross-Legged’? Shia Lie Debunked

One of the many lies of the Rafidaht that comes in the form of a shubhah (doubt/spurious argument) and that I have encountered a number of times myself online by the principle enemies of Ahlus-Sunnah, the Rafidah, is the claim that Sunnis (‘Vahhabis‘) believe that Allah sits ‘cross-legged’. The ignorant Rafidah usually cite some proofs (spoofs) that they don’t understand without realising that of course.

Everyone claims to have a connection with Layla…

One of my favourite (Arab) proverbs:

وَكُلُّ يَدَّعِي وَصْلاً بِلَيْلَى **** وَلَيْلَى لَا تُقِرُّ لَهُمْ بِذَاكَا
إِذَا اشْتَبَكَتْ دُمُوعٌ فِي جُفُونٍ **** تبينَ مَنْ بَكَى مِمَّنْ تَبَاكَى

Everyone claims to have a connection with Layla, but Layla does not affirm that for any of them…

Shaykh al-Albani (رحمه الله) quoted it often (when referring to claimants of Islam/Sunnah and the truth). It is based on an old story of Arabic origin, about the 7th-century Najdi Bedouin poet Qays ibn al-Mullawah and his lady love Layla bint Mahdi (or Layla al-Aamiriya). “The Layla-Majnun theme passed from Arabic to Persian, Turkish, and Indian languages”, most famously through the narrative poem composed in 584/1188 by the Persian poet Nizami Ganjavi, as the third part of his Khamsa.

Ex-Shia On The Pros and Cons Of Nahj al-Balagha

Nahj al-Balagha (Arabic: نهج البلاغة) (the Peak of Eloquence) is a collection of sayings and writings attributed to ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (رضي الله عنه). It is a highly revered Twelver Shia book often referred to by Shia ‘Ayatollahs’ as the brother of the Qur’an (then they have the audacity to claim that Sunnis exaggerate with Sahih Bukhari who nobody dares to compare to the Qur’an).

Attacking The Sahabah Serves As A Springboard For Attacking The Qur’an and the Sunnah

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 () befriended the likes of ‘Uthman and honoured him twice by giving ‘Uthman two of his daughters…and the Messenger of Allah () was sent by Allah…so let’s blame all of them, wal-‘Ayadhubillah!

The Hadith of Hudhayfah ibn al-Yaman Destroys The Very Foundation of Imamism (Shi’ism)

‘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.

Sunni-Salafi Scholarship And The Condemnation of The Heresies Of The Nawasib and Rawafid On ‘Ashura

In the name of Allah, all praise is due to Allah and may the Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon His final Messenger Muhammad al-Mustafa, his family and Companions, especially the Rightly Guided Caliphs, Abu Bakr al-Siddiq, ‘Umar al-Faruq, ‘Uthman Dhu al-Nurayn and ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib, Assadullah al-Ghalib.

Celebrating that day is an innovation (bid’ah), and making it an anniversary for mourning is an innovation. 

By Ebn Hussein

Sunni-Salafi scholars have always condemned extremism (tatarruf) and exaggeration (ghuluww) that heretical sects have perpetuated, innovated and propagated in the name of (or in opposition of) the Ahlul-Bayt, peace be upon them. By pondering over the statements presented in this treatise, the non-biased reader will clearly realise that Sunnis (Ahlus-Sunnah wa al-Jama’ah) are the middle path between two extremes; namely the extremism of Rafidism (Imamite Shi’ism) and that of Nasibism (the Nasibah or Nawasib i.e. those who embrace the hate of Ali (r) and his family as part of their faith).

Many Lies Can Be Found In Three

The scholars say: أن الكذب يكثر في ثلاثة : التاريخ والمغازي والسير

Many lies (weak and fabricated narrations) can be found in three: History books, writings about early Islamic military campaigns and Prophetic biographies.

Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Athar do not pick and choose from books of history, neither what is for nor against them, in fact they have been the most just and narrated many narrations that speak about the mistakes of some Sahaba. Ahlus-Sunnah haven’t watered down the truth let alone hid it, however, Ahlul-Bid’ah have taken advantage of everything that has been reported in books of history as if they are primary Sunni sources! This is why scholars have scrutinised books of history like the Tarikh of Imam al-Tabari to identify blatant fabrications from authentic reports.

The Lavish and Extravagant Shrines and Mausoleums That Must Be Razed To The Ground

Visit to Khomeini’s grave:

  Of course, during my stay in Iran I was also eager to visit the infamous Khomeini shrine (which even then resembled a Sassanian Zoroastrian palace rather than the modest grave of an alleged ascetic Muslim and leader of the oppressed).

Ali b. Abi Talib Is Upon The Same Creed As The Rest of The Sahabah

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.).

Two Books about Sunnism In Iran & The Salafi-Athari Creed

Introduction to two books:

1. إيران السنية – الحياة الدينية في إيران قبل الصفوية

‘Sunni Iran – Religious life in Iran before the Safvid era.’ Title says it all. One thing is for sure, the Masajid called to 5 Adhans a day and the scholars knew Tajwid, unlike the ‘Ayatollahs’ of Qom, Najaf, and Karbala.

Imam Sakhtiyani and Shaykh al-Shithri Remarks On New Muslims

البدعةَ لا تنمو وتنتشرُ إلاَّ في ظلِّ الجهلِ ، وغيبةِ أهل العلمِ والإيمان، ولذلكَ قالَ الإمامُ أيوب السختياني ت131~: (من سعادة الحدَث والأعجمي أن يُوفِّقهما الله للعالِم من أهل السنة.

Shaykh Abdurrahman bin Sa’ad bin ‘Ali Al-Shithri:

‘Reprehensible innovations in the religion do not spread but in the shadow of darkness and the absence of the people of knowledge and belief (i.e. scholars), that is why Imam Ayyub Al-al Sakhtiyani said,

“From the happiness of the newly entered person in Islam and the non-Arab is if Allah has given them the success to connect with a scholar of Ahlul-Sunnah.”‘

Islam Against Extremism

Despising any theological belief is our human right but remember the statement of the our beloved Prophet (s) narrated by his family:

إياكم والغلو في الدين

Extremism in religion can lead to kufr & Shirk (Rafidism) & indiscriminate slaughter of others (Daesh, Shia death Squads, Iranian Shia militias etc.)

عَنِ ابْنِ عَبَّاسٍ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِيَّاكُمْ وَالْغُلُوَّ فِي الدِّينِ فَإِنَّهُ أَهْلَكَ مَنْ كَانَ قَبْلَكُمْ الْغُلُوُّ فِي الدِّينِ

Ibn Abbas reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “O people, beware of extremism (Ghuluww) in religion for those who came before you were only destroyed because of extremism in religion.”

NOTHING Resembles Him!

A zindiq with the turban of Satan said:

The Salafi punchline is: ‘in a manner that befits His Majesty’

The punchline actually is:

لَيْسَ كَمِثْلِهِ شَيْءٌ ۖ وَهُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْبَصِيرُ

{There is nothing like Him, and He is the All‑Hearer, the All‑Seer}

It’s a rabbani and consistent principle that Ahlus-Sunnah employs, an approach in line with revelation. From the verse above we learn from al-Bari, Allah, Himself that we shouldn’t shy away from affirming his attributes (no matter what attributes), however we preceed it with the Quranic principle that nothing is like Him. This is a sound and reasonable principle and as the scholars say:

‘Whatever you imagine in your mind, Allah is different from it.’

Nothing is like Him, hence there is neither an idol hanging in the places of the Ahlul-Sunnah nor an idol in their minds. The Ahlul-Bid’ah like the Rafidah on the other hand have made idols of their buried deities, they pray to them (with the pathetic excuse/misuse of tawassul, just like Christians and other pagans do) i.e. worship them, thus their buried demigods having an actual shape makes them mujassimah and musshabbihah.

Adalat al-Sahaba

To the shallow minded and the zanadiqah of course (who don’t understand what Adalat al-Sahaba means, even if they think they do by having read some basic books on this concept) the following hadith would somehow discredits all Sahaba or at the very least casts a shadow on most of them and make them an untrustworthy entity by default (as its the case in Rafidism, where the Asl/default is that the Sahaba are evil until proven otherwise i.e. certain individuals).
