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).

Even the Taxi driver was perplexed and asked why an Iranian from abroad wants to see Khomeini’s grave. He told me that most Iranians don’t care about him, and if I was being serious, I told him I absolutely am serious.  Later I found out how right the driver was, boy was he right, Khomeini’s grave will be turned into a public toilet if the majority of Iranians had a say, there is no doubt about that.

Me in front of Khomeini’s mausoleum, summer 2003. Keep in mind that the wasteful golden dome and several golden minarets, etc. where not even completed. Today the complex looks like a palace from inside.

I arrived at the mausoleum during the scorch of the afternoon heat. The mausoleum is located to the south of Tehran in the Behesht-e Zahra (Paradise of Zahra) cemetery. Construction commenced in 1989 following Khomeini’s death on June 3 of that year. It is still under construction, but when completed will be the centerpiece in a complex spread over 20 square kilometres (4,900 acres).

The evolution of Khomeini’s grave is the typical evolution of all Shia graves, especially that of their saints. It’s starts humble and turns into an anti-Islamic wasteful complex where a grave is located in the middle of a place of worship (something the Prophet of Islam condemned and cursed those who induldge in such practices).

During my visit in 2003 the complex was already huge. Visitors flocked around the huge rectangular tomb (Shia and Sufi shrines always resemble a Ka’bah like structure) in the centre of the mausoleum. People unwrapped green silk threads (dakhil) and tied them around the crosses of the lattice frame (common Shia practices) for the sake of Tabarruk (seeking blessings). They kissed the frame and performed Tawaf-like rituals (circumambulating) around the shrine that is bigger in size than the shrines in Karbala, Najaf, and Mashhad.

I could hear people whispering odes and their wishes to Khomeini. There was I, in the midsts of the evolution of the mother of all Shirk (polytheism) i.e. the excessive veneration of saints, saint worship, conducted in the name of ‘intercession’ just as it is done in the Church (Catholics and Orthodox Christians). To my surprise I realised that the many visitors were actually non-Iranians.

Me with my cousin and brother doing ‘Tawassul’. People are encouraged (see the board on the top right) to recite *specific* Ziyarah/pilgrimage prayers for Khomeini, and since he is a saint, one can of course ask him for one’s needs! Then you have some deluded folks, even in the Sunni world, who claim that Shirk al-Qubur (Quburiyyah) i.e. grave worship is just a ‘Najdi Wahhabi’ invention and hallucianation. تبا لكم يا أغبياء.

 

They were visitors were either Arabs from Iraq, the Persian Gulf countries and Lebanon or Asians from the Indian subcontinent (especially Pakistanis). I was reminded by the Taxi driver who told me that most Iranians don’t really come down to Khomeini’s resting place. That’s how humiliated the Iranian regime is. Khomeini and the Shia clergy by large are despised and hatred by a very large portion of the population, this is you why you will mostly find non-Iranian Shias idealising and romanticising the Iranian Revolution and the Shia clergy.

As for what I’ve witnessed there: the typical exaggerated and excessive Shia practices and rituals of grave veneration and worship. Shia clerics from all over the world were roaming that place, people were prostrating towards the shrine and they (clerics) didn’t blink an eye (but Tarawih is bid’ah they say…). Why would they anyway? They are the culprits, they are the cause for the ghuluw (exaggeration) in the name of Ahlul-Bayt, they are the one’s who are lenient with such practices (they verbally claim that prostrating to graves is haram, on the other hand they tell their followers that doing so in the form of ‘thanking Allah’ is permissible).

Keep in mind, I visited Khomeini’s tomb in 2003, even back then it was still in development! Today it is nearly finished and looks like a a giant jewellery box, like a royal Sassanian palace (the tombs of Shahs of Iran look more modest), but certainly not like a modest Islamic grave. Its ceiling is decorated with fine rose-tinged quartz, golden stars embedded in between. Fine rugs cover every inch of the mausoleum. Hundreds of them carpet the polished marble floors. The Iranian regime has reportedly devoted 2 billion US dollars to his mausoleum.

A current picture of the monstrous and ultra-luxurious final home of the man who claimed his way of governing the country would bring equality and justic, the man who often spoke about the mustaz’afin (oppressed and disinherited). The man who became a Taghut and idol worst than the worst kings/Shahs and Pharaos.

Crusaders and even Hindus have more modest/Islamic graves than compared to Khomeini’s palace. Irony: One day none other but the vast majority of Iranians (cultural Shias who hate the regime/clerics will level this waste to the ground & inshallah distribute the gold to the poor.

Bid’ah & Success of the A’jami

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-Sakhtiyani said,

“From the happiness of the newly entered person in Islam and the non-Arab is if Allah gave them the success to connect with a scholar of the Ahlu-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.)

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 (SWT) 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 Ahlus-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).
