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).
Typically, flogging is imposed on an unwilling subject as a punishment; however, it can also be submitted willingly for sadomasochistic pleasure, or performed on oneself, in religious or sadomasochistic contexts. This article will deal with the link between self-flagellation in Shi’ism and Christianity, particularly in Catholic societies.
The scholars of Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Athar In Yemen have provided one of the best works in refutation of the Qubooris such as the Zaydis, Twelvers, and Sufis (all three are united in the heresy of building lavish structures over graves and venerating the buried saints).
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.
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.
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.
From Rafidi parts in Lebanon, to the heartland of Iran, names like Abdullah, Abdul-Rahim, Abdul-Razzaq etc. are only common in Sunni regions of those respected countries, in Shia regions you can barely find such names, yet there are plenty of: Abdol-Hossein, Abdol-Reza, Abdol-Amir (Ali b. Abi Talib), Abdol-Zahra (Fatimah), Abdol-Rasul, etc. names that the Ahlul-Bayt and their students never approved.
Shaykh Mohammad Shafi Qurayshi is the Mufti of the Sunni Shafi’i region of Talysh, Gilan (Northern Iran, which is one of the remaining Sunni strongholds of Iran after the anti-Sunni Safawi onslaught in the 16th century on Iranian Sunnis.
During (and before) Ottoman rule, for hundreds of years, daily prayers inside al-Masjid al-Haram in Makkah were conducted at different times according to the four most widely accepted Sunni Schools of jurisprudence (madhhab), and at four different locations of the Masjid. Each school of thought had basically its own Mihrab!
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).
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:
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.
When you confront the extremists amongst the grave and saint 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?
In the latest news from Iraq, hate preacher Yasser al-Habib (based in Fulmer, Slough. His gullible non-British followers are told that his temple and TV station are based in London. It’s a selling point) has been causing having in Baghdad after he launched a campaign calling for the destruction of the statue of Abu Ja’far al-Mansur al-Abbasi in Baghdad. Before we get to the statue, some background information:
There is no doubt that Islam is the truth and that the people of the Sunnah, the Ahlul-Sunnah, are the closest people to the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ). There is also no doubt that Rafidism (Twelver Shia Imamism) is a dumpster of various forms of zandaqah, kufr, shirk, and ghuluw in the name of the Ahlul-Bayt. No damage control attempts can ever change that.
There is also no doubt that the seeds of the da’wah sprout and eventually bear fruit as shall be proven in this article.
A commonly repeated shubhah by Rawafid and other Quburis based on the misuse of a hadith that states that the Prophet (ﷺ) can hear our salam that we send upon him. In their shallow understanding of these matters, they argue that:
Brother Erfan al-Farisi is a good friend, a student of knowledge (studied and lived for a decade in Yemen, fluent in Arabic), a native from Tehran, a Sunni Persian par excellence ( أحسبه كذالك والله حسيبه ولا أزكي على الله تعالى أحدا).
A Facebook Sufi page with tens of thousands of followers responded to me after asking them a simple and straightforward question regarding the invocation of other than Allah in du’a i.e. literally beseeching and calling upon other than Allah (which is not tawassul in any shape or form, it’s pseudo-tawassul, a misuse of the term of tawassul).
The answer I got was expected, but still, it is always shocking, just imagining that someone can claim Islam and Tawhid whilst holding the folding abhorrent pagan beliefs that resemble Catholicism more than they resemble Islam:
A few months ago I stumbled online upon the project of a rather dull and monotonous speaker, Rafidi turban head Seyed-Ali Hosseini (‘Sayed Ali Shobayri’). A loser channel on YouTube, dead, views so low, one feels almost pity and wonders how useless their own kind are who seem not to be too enthusiastic and supportive of their ‘learned’ ones.
However, as I always say: you cannot always choose your opponents, sometimes you have to take what is available, so that is why I and my team respond, refute and humiliate them occasionally. They should be proud that anybody gives them any attention. The Rafidah have not many speakers, so refute their outspoken ones, even if they are not famous.
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).
What the Rafidah like other Quburis simply cannot fathom (some of them may understand but they pretend not to, in order to justify the mainstream polytheistic practices of their coreligionists, including top Ayatullats) is that
Over the years I’ve received many messages from ex-Shias i.e. converts from Imamism to Islam/Ahlul-Sunnah and pro-Shia-Sunni unity (gullible) Sunnis alike.
I can still remember the case of a Palestinian brother. He used to curse me on a daily basis, the number of messages where I was called a ‘Wahhabi, Nasibi, Zionist’ etc. reached a level where I stopped trying to explain myself. Subtitling clips for various channels and writing articles for various platforms was my focus in the da’wah. All in defense of Ahlul-Sunnah and in refutation of Rafidism.
One day, that very brother sent me a long Email, apologising for all the insults and cursing and how after he studied my work, the websites I contributed to, etc. he finally realised that Imamism is nothing but falsehood masquerading as the school of Ahlul-Bayt.
According to sociologists, anti-Clericalism tends to appear whenever clerics gain political and social influence. People of a different persuasion – religious or non-religious – may begin to criticise what they consider is the overly powerful position of the clergy.
Qassem Soleimani, aide-de-camp to Rafidi dictator Khamenei, lifesaver of secular Nusayri-Rafidi pagan Bashar la-Assad, butcher of Syrian children, has been turned into a cringe idol not long after he was turned into a Persian kabab/cutlet (kotlet) by the foolish WTF (Wilayatul-Faqih) regime.
Over the course of the last forty years, Iran has burnt tens of thousands of American and ‘Israeli’ flags, has chanted ‘Death to Israel’ and of course claims to be the flag bearer of the Palestinian cause.
The hadith of the blind man and the man in need are two narrations that are often quoted by grave-worshippers (Quburis) who misuse and abuse these narrations in order to justify their textbook and Catholic-Esque polytheism and paganism of saint worship (the invocation of the saints in supplication).
This article will prove that their proofs are nothing but spoofs and that there is no need to fall into other extreme i.e. the outright rejection of Islamic concepts such as Tawassul, Tashaffu’, etc. in order to debunk the extremists from amongst the Quburis.
The Hadith Of The Blind Man And Its Misapplication
No doubt, al-Husayn ibn ‘Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) always invoked Allah alone and taught others to do so.
No doubt, al-Husayn ibn ‘Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) never raised flags of shirk and slogans such as ‘Ya Husayn’, rather his slogan and that of the companions were slogans of Tawhid (such as ‘ya Allah’ and the Takbir that Sunnis are known for).
Al-Husayn never said ‘ya myself madad’ nor ‘ya ‘Ali madad’, rather he prayed to Allah alone, so do Sunnis.
Sunnis are the true Husaynis, they are upon the Tawhid of al-Husayn, Ali ibn Abi Talib, the family of the Prophet (ﷺ):
Omid Sharifi ‘Dana’ (he dislikes his actual Arab last name ‘Sharifi’ as he hates anything related to Arabs and the Arab language) is an infamous Shia-born convert to Zoroastrianism (common amongst Iranian born-Shias), Iranian ultra-nationalist, racist, and apologist of Shi’ism and the Iranian Khomeinist Shi’ite regime. Sounds contradicting? You will find out why there is no contradiction in that and why certain groups of Iranian ultra-nationalists have always championed and supported Shi’ism as a tool to fight Muslims and distort Islam in the name of Islam.
Abul-Qasim al-Taymi al-Isfahani al-Shafi’i (457- 535 H) was a major authority of Ahlus-Sunnah, one of the Shuyukh of al-Ibn al-Sam’ani. He studied in Isfahan (Sunni stronghold in pre-Rafidi-Safawi Persia) and amongst his teacher was a female, ‘Aishah bint al-Hassan al-Warkaniyyah al-Isfahaniyyah, a praised and reliable transmitter of Hadith. He also studied in Baghdad (Iraq), Nayshabur (Persia, Khorasan), and Ray (modern-day Tehran). He was buried in Isfahan (the graves of many classical Sunni scholars that exist all over Iran were desecrated by the anti-Sunni Rafidhi Twelver Shia Safavid empire and its spiritual descendants).
‘Abdul-Masih the Copt and ‘Abdul-Hussain (and all those who are upon his Quburi creed of invoking the buried and tombed ones).
As for the ‘Abdul-Hussain and his friends:
Yes, they literally invoke their buried and tombed demigods just like Muslims invoke Allah. They literally pray to them (directly) like Catholics pray to their saints. They ask them for all their needs (hajat), often than not they even bypasses Allah (who isn’t even worth a mention in their most famous invocations such as ‘ya ‘Ali madad’).
There is no doubt that traditional attire in the lands of the Muslims is beautiful and should be maintained. However, many Muslims hold unjustifiable (at worst) or accepted (at best) opinions and try to shove them down the throats of others as the golden truth.
You have the Pseudo-Sufis who literally wear turbans with sandal pins (‘of the Prophet’) on their heads (and even cover their places of worship with it!) and constantly rant about how their evil boogeyman, the ‘Najdi-Vahhabis’, have abandoned wearing the holy turban (not true, meany Atharis wear Turbans in lands were turbans are traditional like Mauretania, Sudan, Yemen, etc.).
The worst bid’ah with regards to clothing is that of the Rafidah (and some Sufis) who have institutionalised the hideous bid’ah of clerical attire that is literally designated for a specific class of society i.e. the clergy.
This is an ugly bid’ah taken from other polytheists (Church, etc.) and started during the Safavid take-over of Persia (when modern-day Iran was forced from a majority Sunni country into a majority Rafidi Shia one) and is ever since an essential part of their religious institutions (‘scientific seminaries/al-Hawzat al-‘Ilmiyyah’) and those who graduate from them (or are given the ‘blessing’ of wearing the Rafidi turban by one of their scholars).
For those who don’t know, the Rafidah are on the exact same ‘Aqidah as al-‘Awni, Qadhi, and other Shirk-apologists when it comes to the issue of Istiqlal.
I can provide you with plenty of lectures, in Arabic, Persian, etc. where they idolatrous turban-heads of the Rafidah literally say that invoking the Imams/Ali ibn Abi Talib (or even Fatimah 500+ times in prostration!) for rizq, children, literally anything you wish, is the purest form of Tawhid and can never be shirk. How? Well, like other heretical Quburis they add their favourite clause/cop-out ‘with the permission of Allah’ i.e. rejecting Istiqlal (dependency from Allah) for their buried and tombed demigods.
The grave worshippers argue that their tombed demigods are depending on Allah i.e. Allah is superior to them and they are not mustaqil (independent) from Allah and they can’t do anything without His will and permission and thus they (Quburis) are not committing any form of shirk whatsoever. He (Allah) chose to give them (buried saints) these powers, which of course is nothing but a lie.
So because the Rafidah affirm with their tongues that Allah has chosen to bestow the Imams/Ahlul-Bayt with the power to hear and respond to every du’a (even if you bypass Allah and call directly on the Imams without mentioning Allah at all!), they (the Rafidah) can now totally invoke their Imams exactly like one is supposed to invoke Allah in du’a, the Rafidi just has to add the clause ‘with the permission of Allah’.
And this the result of the Istiqlal nonsense. These extremist Rawafid are monotheists, Muslims, upon the Millah of Ibrahim (i.e. Hunafa`) who (at worst) have erred according to the likes of al-‘Awni, Qadhi, etc. and according to the extremists from amongst the Sufis and the Rafidah this is the purest form of Tawhid. Enjoy their ‘Tawhid’:
In 2012, Shaykh Ibtisam Elahi Zaheer, the son of the lion of Islam and Ahlus-Sunnah of Pakistan, Ehsan Elahi Zaheer (may Allah have mercy upon him), visited us in London, UK, in our modest studio (Toweed TV, formerly known as Wesal Farsi TV).
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)→
