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.
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).
The bamboozled gullible sheep have been fooled all along…
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).
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.
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). Continue reading Ali ibn Abi Talib pledged allegiance willingly and out of conviction
Imagine there is a religion that teaches that there is a so-called ‘infallible hidden Imam’ on earth (who’s guiding nobody) who left his nation without an infallible guide for over a thousand-year (but no worries, he left behind Iranian ‘Ayatullats’ who can’t even recite a Fatihah with semi-correct Tajwjid), who’s literally scared (despite all his alleged superpowers) of being killed (by Abbasids and the ‘Vahhabis’…) and then will be killed anyway, but by whom? by a bearded lady!
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).
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!
Throughout history, various Muslim schools (asides from the Twelver school) have claimed to be the inheritors of Ahlulbait’s legacy. Most classical Shi’ite schools, however, have perished, and only a few remain today. The few surviving schools, nevertheless, all claim to be representative of the teachings of the Prophet’s household.
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.
Islam came to eliminate saint and grave veneration from its very roots, especially in the forms of erected graves, shrines, mausoleums, statues, and images of revered figures. One of the greatest iconoclasts in Muslim history was none other but the Commander of the Believers, ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib, may Allah be pleased with him, a role-model for all idol-breakers who are slandered today as ‘Wahhabis’:
What is the actual truth regarding the Zaydi (Zaydiyyah) Shia sect? How true is their claim to the Ahlul-Bayt (عليهم السلام) where they (like every Shia sect) claim to be their exclusive true followers (and everybody else is misguided)?
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.
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:
According to Shia, the Imam is present to guide the believers out of Lutf (divine bounty and grace). If he takes him away then it means Allah has not bestowed upon us his grace making him an unjust god according to Shia.
‘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).
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.
Modern-day Afghanistan (Khorasan) is founded upon resistance against Rafidi Shiism and the Persian Rafidi Safavid Empire
By Ebn Hussein (Hassan Shemrani)
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.
