Some people resort to grasping at straws to justify one of the stepping stones to paganism, which is grave worship. A whole list of their false arguments has already been debunked here with the tawfiq of Allah.
Distorting and decontextualising Qur’anic verses and sahih Sunni ahadith and often than not presenting blatant fabrications and weak Sunni narrations as ‘authentic Sunni sources’ have been the most resourceful tools in the Shia box of tricks.
Why do the Twelver Shia balance the Qur’an on their heads during the nights of Ramadan? Where does this bizarre practice stem from? Do they have any evidence for this practice? “It is your Sunni books tho”?
This article shall clarify these questions and shed some light on this bizarre ritual that is falsely attributed to the Imams of the progeny of the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ).
One of the most abused and misapplied verses of the Qur’an are those about the martyrs (الشهداء) who are described as being alive(with their Rabb). The extremists from amongst the heretical sects, present those verses to the gullible and ignorant masses as proof and justification for the heresy and mother of all shirk (polytheism) that is the invocation of the saints (imams, Ahl al-Bayt, shaykhs, pirs, etc.) for one’s needs.
In the Qur’an, the position of Chieftains (nuqaba`) of the Israelites (Bani Israel) is not clearly mentioned. In the Qur’an, it is only mentioned that they were ordered to guard the covenant they were entrusted by God, Allah, Almighty:
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).
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.
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.
The Shia – Twelver, Zaydis, and other Rafidah and semi-Rafidah, accuse ‘Uthman of being a tyrant who preferred his clan over everybody else. They accuse him of the worst form of nepotism and often cite how he put his own relatives in charge.
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’.
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).
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.
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.
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.
One of the arguments and proofs (read spoofs) Rafidah always pull out when being confronted with the uselessness of their non-guiding ‘Imam’ (‘Mahdi’) is their diversion to other Awliyah and Prophets who went into some form of ‘hiding’. On the surface, their arguments might convince some gullible folks, the sharp-minded truth-seeker will however see through such pathetic arguments such as:
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).
Some Twelver polemicists cite some statements of Sunni scholars who apparently regarded Imamah/Khilafah (rulership) as one of the Usūl (principles) of the Dīn in addition to declaring the one who rejects the Khilāfah of Abū Bakr and ‘Umar (رضي الله عنهما) as Kuffar.
Sunnis: The Prophet (ص) prohibited us from turning La’n into a habit (let alone a ritual).
Shia: But Allah sends la’nah in the Qur’an though.
Sunnis: No doubt, however, without specifying anybody in particular. Neither He nor his Messenger (ص) have instructed us to innovate entire cursing rituals and prayers as Shi’ism and its clergy have.
Shia: But in your own Sunni reports the Prophet (ص) cursed specific people.
Sunnis: Yes, to every rule there are exceptions, point is he never send la’nah on ANY of his companions (let alone instructing us to perform ritualised cursing marathons).
To demonstrate you how inherently excessive and extreme Rafidi Shi’ism is in nature just look at this obviously fabricated supplication where one has to send numerous curses on the killer of Ali (r).Undoubtly, the killer of Ali (r) was an evil and wretched individual but how can this cursing ritual (in the month of Ramadhan!) be from Islam? Is this Sunnah? Where did the Prophet (s) practice such nonsense and where did he teach it?
Yes, sometimes falsehood does deserve mocking, however, mocking alone will bring no good, at the very least it must be accompanied by knowledge.
The Rafidi practice of praying on the dirt/soil of the grave (!) of al-Husayn (r) in Karbala is nothing but a ugly Bid’ah that was concocted by extremists in the name of the Ahlul-Bayt that has been academically refuted for the falsehood that it is.
Hassan Al-Qadri has (admittedly) a big mouth, lots of drama and hot air, but when it comes to action he is the master of avoiding those who can dismantle him and the best arguments of his Rāfidi religion.
Do Sunnis/Salafis believe that God sits cross legged and is a beardless young man wearing a green robe?
Both of these pathetic Shubuhāt are often brought up by hardcore Qubūrīs (grave worshippers) from amongst the esoteric/batini Sufiyyah and their spiritual cousins, the Rafidah.
The likes of Zindīq Syed (‘Sayed’) Ali (Imam) from Bayat al-Ganesh (‘Ghadeer’) have often brought up this misleading doubt (in order to distract from the bizarre and blatantly pagan beliefs and rituals of their religion), copying and pasting the nonsense from the likes of Zindiq Hassan Farhan al-Maliki (crypto-Rafidi in Saudi Arabia), Saqqaf and other zanadiqah.
Enjoy watching the brothers in Sudān dismantling this shubha, academically and thoroughly without any apologetic excuses.
One of the many objectives of Shari’ah (Islamic Law) is to safeguard the concept of Tawhid (belief in the Oneness of Allah and that none but Him is worthy of worship/ monotheism) against misuse and to direct all mankind towards worshipping and serving Allah Alone, the very purpose for which they were created. So just because something is not shirk per se, doesn’t make it right or Islamic.
