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.’
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).
In the name of Allah,
I was born in Iran, in the Persian town of Shemiran, in the mid-80s into a Shia family (father’s side traditionally conservative and religious, well, at least once upon a time, mother’s side less religious, since like forever). My father and mother’s side of my family claims Arab ancestry, my grandfather was very proud of that and always emphasised on our (alleged) ancestry. Arab tribes did indeed settle all over Iran after the Islamic conquest, there is no doubt about that, however, I’ve always been very sceptic about Hashimite ancestry claims, and thus have always introduce myself as a Muslims who was born into an Iranian Persian Shia family first and foremost. Anyways, I mention this because I am from the Abbasi family (Abbasi is my actual surname).
