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.
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 (ﷺ), 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.
The Isma’ili Rafidis, just like the Twelver Rafidis and extreme batini Sufis, clutch upon fabricated narrations that are so shirki in nature that even a Hindu wouldn’t hesitate a second to declare Islam innocent of such paganism.
In Islam (unlike in Imamism) Images of animals and people are prohibited inside a mosque because of the concern that such images might lead to idol worship (this principle is Sadd al-Dara’i, blocking the means).
The concept of Sadd al-Dara’i is founded on the idea of prevention of evil before it materialises. There are examples of Sadd al-Dara’i in the Quran (for instance, 6:108; 2:104). The means must conform to the ends (objectives of Shariah) and ends must prevail over the means. If the means violate the purpose of Shariah, these must be blocked.
Saint and grave veneration (which is different from honouring the Awliyah) has been historically a means to polytheism and whatever is a means to something unlawful (especially if it’s polytheism) is unlawful itself according to principles of the religion.

A hallmark of the Ahlul-Bid’ah (like the Rafidah and the Mutasawwifah) is that they rely on weak and fabricated reports. Once they are exhausted with that (after being refuted) they move onto the ‘but so-and-so great scholars said so’ appeal.
These pseudo-intellectuals commit a classical logical fallacy i.e. an argument from authority (argumentum ab auctoritate). One of their many logical fallacies to which they clutch onto due to their ignorance. Continue reading Hanbali Imam al-Saffarini performed Shirk?
When you confront the Quburis (grave worshippers) about their Shirk, they try to vindicate themselves by saying, that they don’t believe that the Prophet (ﷺ) or Imam, Wali (saint), etc., himself helps us (well, some actually do!), rather when we call out to them for help it is meant in a figurative meaning (Majaz), not literal meaning (Haqiqah).
The Ghuluww (exaggeration) of modern day Batini (esoteric fake) Sufis is mind-boggling.
Can someone show the following bloke pics and videos of Syrian children eating leaves and scouring rubbish dumps for food in Syria 2016 when the axis of the Rafidah Majoos besieged them?
So clear-cut Shirki phrases in du’a (supplication) like ‘Ya Ali/Jilani’ etc. madad (help) where the lazy Quburi doesn’t even bother to mention Allah are suddenly nothing but Tawhid and intercession (Tawassul). Basically, they argue that:
‘Ya Ali/Jilani’ helllllllllp!!!! = Ya Ali/Jilani please be so kind and ask Allah to help me/fulfill my needs. Thanks.
The absurdity of this claim should be clear for every person of intellect who has not been blinded by bias. Of course, there are Mushriks who are more severe in Shirk, thus you will find the highest Sufi and Rafidi authorities openly preaching that one does not need to invoke Allah at all i.e. you can invoke your saint directly, plus intending none but your almighty saint (i.e. forget about the Majaz game), ask that merciful buried demigod for all your needs, he will surely answer, all you need to do is to make sure you add the get-out clause (with the permission of Allah), a divine clause that has been misused by the Quburis like no other sentence in Islam:
The Quburis will argue with a straight (Mushrik) face that Invoking Jesus (a) is totally fine and Islamic! And of course, Invoking Lady Mary is legit and totally Islamic! It’s always Hallelujah in the Quburi Church.
But despite this oft-repeated attempt (‘we only ask the saints to ask Allah… we do not believe the saints act independently from Allah) at whitewashing their Shirk, their own actions and words give away their true polytheistic beliefs and nature. Look at this priest of theirs claiming that the Prophet, after his passing away, nurtures children “with his perfection, beauty, and mercy.
If this is not making someone besides Allah into Rabb (sustainer, nurturer) then what is?
As you can see, they have lost all shame. They openly post Ghuluw and Shirk like that as if it is totally normal. Well, it is, to them that ‘the purest Tawhid on this earth right now’ as one idolatrous priest in the name of Islam once said.
Unsurprisingly, the tyrannical leaders in the Muslim world, the Rafidah, and other enemies of Islam see in modern-day Quburi Sufism – which is nothing but a dumpster of folklore paganism, superstitions, polytheism, and other Ghuluw (extremism) in the name of the saints/Ahlul-Bayt, similar to Rafidism – a perfect ally, a diluted version of Islam that they prefer any time and any day over Islam/Ahlul-Sunnah.
One of the – if not the – most gullible and easiest targets for Rafidi propagandists from Iran and elsewhere are grave worshippers (Quburis) such as extreme Sufis (pseudo-Sufis really, as true Sufism is part of Islam).
Abul Fatḥ Muḥammad ibn Abdil-Kareem al-Shahrastāni (d. 548) lived some two centuries before Ibn Taimiyya (d. 728) and ibn al-Qayyim (d. 751), let alone being some seven centuries before MiAW (d. 1206). Despite that, this is what he had to say about idol-worshipers in his encyclopedic work on religions and sects ‘Al-Milal wan-Niḥal’: Continue reading Al-Shahristani on the Shirk of the Quburis (grave worshippers)
One of the hallmarks of the Quburis is their ignorance of Islamic terminology related to Tawhid. You will often see them mixing up the terms such as bid’ah, shirk, khurafah, zandaqah, etc. You will often find them saying things like, ‘Vahhabis say visiting graves is shirk …’, or ‘Vahhabis say tabarruk is shirk’.
As an introduction, it must be made clear that there are indeed fine details on the subject of calling on someone other than Allah. Of course, not every call (نداء) directed to someone other than Allah is shirk (polytheism) in and of itself.
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.
‘There exists NO religious prohibition for Muslims to ask lady Mary to intercede for them.’
In every Aqidah book, including in Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah’s (‘Nasibis’) ‘Aqeedah al-Wasitiyyah you can read the testimony of Ahlus-Sunnah with regards to their love of Ahlul-Bayt that is based on a balance i.e. they neither hate the Ahlul-Bayt (like Nawasib) nor have fallen into extremism with them (like the Rawafid), it is a middle path where the Ahlul-Bayt are given their due right, love for them is incumbent upon every Muslim and the scholars of Islam from Bukhari to the smallest Muhaddith have filled their books with chapters of the merits of the Ahlul-Bayt.
Of course, Rawafid will never be satisfied with that, just like the Christians will never be satisfied with Muslims expressing their love for Jesus (peace be upon him). Both – Imam and Messiah worshippers – will only rest until you follow their false religions and exaggerate with Ahlul-Bayt/Jesus as they have done.
Back to Omid Safi. His ‘Ahlul-Bayt loving Sunni Islam’ echoes similar statements like when Rawafid refer to themselves as ‘lovers of Ahlul-Bayt’ or ‘followers of the school of Ahlul-Bayt’ like as if Muslims (who reject Imamism, NOT the Ahlul-Bayt) are opponents of the Ahlul-Bayt.
The Ahlul-Bayt are part of the Sahabah and the chief of the Sahabah are the Muhajirs and Ansar (Qur’an 9:100), they are the role models for every Muslim after them, Imam Abu Hanifah, Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq, etc. have to follow them and not vice versa as per the clear-cut nass (text) of the Qur’an.
Omid Safi’s remark and statements similar to his are sly insults that Rafidis (no matter in what shade, 50 shades of Rafidism are still Rafidism) can’t resist but to utter, even seemingly liberal Sufi types like Omid, the ‘professor’ (!) of Islam.
The actual truth is that a ‘Ahlul-Bayt loving Sunni Islam’ is nothing but another word, a code if you like (used in this form until this very day by the descendants of the Safavids in the Hawzat of Qom and elsewhere), for Batini Quboori Sufi forms of ‘Sunnism’ that were widespread in Sunni/Pre-Shia Persia (especially in the Azerbaijani regions i.e. the homeland of the Safavids) and were one of the factors for the spread of Shiism in Persia before the Safavids even began slaughtering and forcing the majority of Sunni Iranians to Rafidism.
The Rafidis always sell the Safavids as ‘Ex-Sunnis’ without mentioning that the grandfather of Ismail Safavid (who converted to Imamism) actually belonged to a deviant Sufi Tariqah that was just nominally Shafi’i in Fiqh but like many Sufi Tariqahs (even today) shared many heretical beliefs and rituals that are also found in Twelver Shiism, particularly excessive veneration of saints/Imams/Ahlul-Bayt and other forms of Ghuluww (exaggeration).
I remember once studying a research article by a Qom/Hawzah running missionary organisation where the Shia clerics advised on how to convert Sunnis to Imamism. A repeated point (that you will often hear by Rafidis in general) was to stay away from the ‘Wahhabis/Salafis’ (they know they are the flag bearers in refuting Rafidism) and rather focus on the ‘true Sunnis’, those with ‘khosh’ (pleasant/good) beliefs such as the grave and shrine venerating Sufis whom they (Rafidi clergy) sometimes refer to as Twelver (!) Sunnis!
I remember AM (الله يرضى عنهم) posting about a Brazilian brother who despite having left Shi’ism was still featured on Yasser al-Khabith’s website as a concert who accepted Shi’iism at the hands of ‘Shaykh al-Habib’.
Here an excellent source/website…
القبوريون هم المشبهة
والرافصة المشركون على نهجم (الأشاعرة القبوريين)، يشغلون البسطاء والجهلة بمسألة التجسيم عن التشبيه الحقيقي الذي تحدث عنه القرءان وحذر منه. وهذا الذي يحذر منه القرءان هم فيه واقعون وإليه ويدعون ولواءه يرفعون وهو دعاء غير الله.
They busy the gullible and weak minded with the issue of Tashbih (likening Allah to the Creation) and Tajsim (anthropomorphism); the old but modified arguments of the Jahmiyyah, accusations levelled against Ahlus-Sunnah that can be refuted by the Qur’an alone (that adding to the Jahmiyyah contains Kufr in its Dhahir!), let alone the reports of the Salaf al-Salihin.
The truth is: It is the Qubūrīs who have fallen into the clear-cut Tashbih: Calling on other than Allah (under the guise of ‘Tawasul’).
The Prophet and his Sahaba (includes Ahlul-Bayt) did not wage Jihad against the Mushrikun in order to replace ‘Ya Hubal, Ya Lāt, Ya Jesus, Ya Mary madad’ (help) with his family (‘Ya Ali, Ya Fatimah, Ya dozen Imams madad’) and a whole plethora of Sufi pirs and other saints.
If you are high on this Shirk you might as well join the Catholic or Orthodox Church (avoid protestants as they would make Takfir on the aforementioned AND you), they have a saint for every specific task (like the Rafidah) and you’ll do just fine.
Qubūri Shubuhāt (doubts, misleading arguments) – Weaker Than a Spider Web – #CallingOtherThanAllah
Anybody who calls upon saints from afar believes by NECASSITY that his buried saints can hear, see etc everything. This person has knowingly or unknowingly deified his saints.
This is why Mushrikūn call on their buried gods in the first place; they already hold shirki beliefs that they and their Rabbis and priests justify with mental gymnastics, fallicious analogies and other pathetic excuses (such as: “My saint can hear and respond to unlimited calls, but not as many as Allah”…’Allah can create millions of Jesus’ and Ali’s who can aid us…why not? with the persmission of Allah…blah blah…’).
These are simple Lawāzim that come with such practices, and this is why scholars such as Ibn Uthaymin, Nasir al-Barrak etc rightfully excused ONLY those who ask the Prophet (s) right next to his grave to ASK Allah (only for Shafa’ah). This is undoubtly not Shirk as the one doing it has some form of (although incorrect) Shubuhat (Prophets alive in heir graves etc.) AND, most importantly, the doer doesn’t believe that the Prophet can is aware of every call, can hear every call, can respond to every call etc. i.e. he hasn’t deified the Prophet (s) in any shape whatsoever.
PS: Quburiyun denying their Ibada by calling it ‘Tawassul’/’Wasilah’/’Shafa’ah’ or adding their favourite clause of ‘Bi`idhnillah’ to their shirk doesn’t turn their paganism into Tawhid. Matters are judged based on their reality and not what they are called.
التصوف *الصحيح* جزء من عقيدة أهل السنة
Every true Sunni is a ‘Sufi’ and every true ‘Sufi’ is a Sunni. Only simpleton ‘Salafis’ reject Tasawwuf in its entirety.
Al-Shibly (may Allaah have mercy upon him) defined Sufism saying, “Sufism is to keep your senses and watch your breath’.
Note: What is meant with Tasawwuf here is not the predominantly heretical type, the Rāfidī type of Qubūrism (grave worship) and other Bida’, Dhalālāt and Zandaqāt in the name of ‘spirituality’ that one can find in Sūfi Tarīqāt. What is meant is the orthodox Sunni way of Tasawwuf (Sufism) which is defined as Tarbiyyah, Tazkiyyat al-Nafs etc.
Not all forms of Tasawwuf are rejected, the orthodox Tasawwuf of the Salaf and Khalaf — or whatever you wanna call it following the قاعدة:
أن العبرة في الحكم على الأشياء بالمسميات لا بالأسماء
is actually an ESSENTIAL part of Islam and one of its sciences and a necessity to nurture one’s soul. Thus, dismissing Sufism wholesale and to refuse to acknowledge any good in Sufism and warn people away from it *without* exception is itself a dangerous form of extremism.
Having said that, it should be understood that it is from the practice of the Ahlus-Sunnah to use general terms. For instance when someone in our times says that the Shia are Sahaba abusers and Grave-worshippers then it is understood that he means the Twelvers as they are the dominant Shia group in the last few centuries right up till today. Same with Sufis, when one says that Sufis are heretics, Zanadiqah, Khurafiyun and extremist Quburis similar to the Rafidah, then what is meant are precisely those heretical extremist Sufis and *not* orthodox Sunnis from the past and today who happen to prefer to associate with the term Sufiyyah.
In that sense: I’m a Muslim. I’m a Sunni. I’m a Salafi. I’m a Sufi. I’m a Bakri, Omari, Othmani and Alawi in the true sense, In sha Allah.
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (who criticised and refuted the Ghulāt Sūfiyyah whilst defending SHAR’ī Tasawwuf) balanced words on Tasawwuf.
He literally says that amongst the greatest Awliya` of Allah are those who were called Sūfis. Rahimallah this genius, who is more moderate (in the true Islamic sense) than many of his ignorant and foolish enemies think.
Pure I’tidāl (if some would only teach such balanced statements more in their repetitive and dull IT lectures):
والتحقيق أن فيه الممدوح والمذموم ـ يعني في مذهب التصوف الممدوح والمذموم ـ والمذموم منه ما يكون اجتهادياً ومنه غير ذلك، كفقه الرأي فإنه قد ذم فقه الرأي طوائف من الفقهاء والعلماء والعباد ” . ثم يقول : ” ومـن المتسمين بهذا الاسم ـ أي التصوف ـ من أولياء الله وصفوته وخيار عباده ما لا يعلم عددهم إلا الله، كما أن من أهل الرأي ـ أي من فقهاء الرأي ـ أهل العلم والإيمان طوائف لا يعلم عددهم إلا الله ” .
The Salaf preferred the term Zuhd instead of Tasawwuf (which has a disputed origin), however, none of them rejected the Shar’ī intended meaning and Maqāsid of it as they are and inherent part of Sunni creed.
The scholars say:
التصوف الصحيح بني على الزهد، والزهد أصل من أصول الشريعة
‘Correct and authentic Tasawwuf is based on Zuhd (Islamic ascetism) and Zuhd is a branch of the branches of the Sharī’ah,.’
The early Salaf used the term ‘Zuhd’ instead of Tasawwuf, the likes of ‘Abdullah Ibn al-Mubarak al-Turkumāni (181 AH, Hannad ibn al-Sari (152 AH), Imam Ahmad etc.
CALL UPON YOUR LORD (not Ali, Jesus, Fatimah, Mary Angels, Badawi, Jilani, Pir Baba etc)
Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah said:
‘Prostration is of two types: prostration by way of pure worship, and prostration by way of honouring and greeting showing respect. As for the former, it can only be done for Allah.’
[Majmu‘ al-Fatawa (4/361)]
