Twenty-three years of Prophetic da’wah, the call of Islam and Tawhid, was not meant to replace the excessive saint veneration of various polytheists (like the Christians) with a set of new saints who can be invoked in du’a.
Shaykh al-Islam Abul-‘Abbas ibn Taymiyyah (rh) says:
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.’
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).
The Pakstiani scholar Mawlana Nāfiʿ (may Allah have mercy on him)’s is the author of the famous work book called ‘Ruḥamā Baynahum’, a four-volume exposition on the amicable relationship between the Companions (Sahabah), particularly between Abū Bakr, ʿUmar, ʿUthman, and the Ahl al-Bayt. A critically important work that makes sense of the erroneous and malicious Rafidi Shia claims that there was nothing but enmity and grudge between the ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib and his family and the rest of the Sahabah.
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).

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.
I was invited on the TV channel (الأئمة) of the legend Mohammad Saber (Egypt) who interviewed me about my story (from Shi’ism to Islam/Sunnah).
Honestly, I’ve never spoken a full hour (in one session) in Arabic to anybody, not even to my wife (native Arabic speaker), let alone to an Egyptian (fast pace speaker). It’s not easy but possible and fun. You learn from your mistakes (which I definitely made a lot), and what is important is the Da’wah.
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.
My birthplace is a 100% Shia town (well, it changed today with many Iranian Sunnis from all over Iran having flocked to the capital, some areas of Tehran boast now entire Sunni neighbourhoods, Al-Hamdulillah),of course most of its population was Sunnis just few centuries ago (before the predecessors of the Khomeinists and the modern-day Shia clergy i.e. the Anti-Sunni Safavids, slaughtered and expelled as many Sunnis as they possibly could) called Shemrān (also known as Shemirān and in local dialect it’s called Shemroon).
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).

According to Shi’ism, the occulted and demigod Shia Mahdi (who went into hiding due to his fear of being killed by mortal Abbasid soldiers) will ultimately die at the hands of some bearded lady. This ludicrous tale is affirmed by their greatest ‘Ayatollahs’. From the horse’s mouth:
One of my favourite (Arab) proverbs:
وَكُلُّ يَدَّعِي وَصْلاً بِلَيْلَى **** وَلَيْلَى لَا تُقِرُّ لَهُمْ بِذَاكَا
إِذَا اشْتَبَكَتْ دُمُوعٌ فِي جُفُونٍ **** تبينَ مَنْ بَكَى مِمَّنْ تَبَاكَى
Everyone claims to have a connection with Layla, but Layla does not affirm that for any of them…
Shaykh al-Albani (رحمه الله) quoted it often (when referring to claimants of Islam/Sunnah and the truth). It is based on an old story of Arabic origin, about the 7th-century Najdi Bedouin poet Qays ibn al-Mullawah and his lady love Layla bint Mahdi (or Layla al-Aamiriya). “The Layla-Majnun theme passed from Arabic to Persian, Turkish, and Indian languages”, most famously through the narrative poem composed in 584/1188 by the Persian poet Nizami Ganjavi, as the third part of his Khamsa.
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.
Their dumb members literally pronounce it as ‘Bayt Al Ghadeer’ which means ‘the house of Ghadeer’. How much of a buffoon do you have to be that you can’t pronounce your own channel name?
It is Bay’ah (or Bay’at) – بيعة – and not Bayt (house), you utter fools. The following one is also a noteworthy and hilarious observation:
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!
