After a productive exchange with a dear friend and actual talib al-‘Ilm, I’d like to share with you his concise rebuttal of a number of Rafidi-Sufi shubuhat that ‘Bro Hajji’ has spread and sold to the gullible as ‘straight from the sources’.
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.

First things first. Let me refresh your memory and remind you that Qassem Soleimani aka *Kotlet (cutlet) Soleimani got fried and smoked in a missile attack under the authority and the command of the following freak of nature:

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’:
Visit to Khomeini’s grave:
Of course, during my stay in Iran I was also eager to visit the infamous Khomeini shrine (which even then resembled a Sassanian Zoroastrian palace rather than the modest grave of an alleged ascetic Muslim and leader of the oppressed).
