Twelve Caliphs = Twelve Shia Imams? A Classical Imamite distortion debunked by Ebn Hussein
In the Qur’an, the position of Chieftains (nuqaba`) of the Israelites (Bani Israel) is not clearly mentioned. In the Qur’an, it is only mentioned that they were ordered to guard the covenant they were entrusted by God, Allah, Almighty:
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).

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).
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.
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.
Are you aware of the famous hadith of Muadh ibn Jabal (ra) who was sent to the great people of Yemen to teach them Islam and its fundamentals?
Fact: Most Sahaba did NOT participate in the fitan and civil wars after the Prophet’s (s) demise, and even those who did were upon the same creed as Ali ibn Abi Talib (r) for the simple fact that (unlike Rafidi propaganda) the battles of Jamal and Siffin were not disputes about religion, rather they were political disputes (revenge for Othman etc.).
Hassan Al-Qadri has (admittedly) a big mouth, lots of drama and hot air, but when it comes to action he is the master of avoiding those who can dismantle him and the best arguments of his Rāfidi religion.
