imamat

An excerpt from Sheikh Usama Abdul Ghani’s speech:

There was one time when Sayyed Nasrallah came to Qum. Normally, for the students, that’s like Eid. Sayyed Nasrallah comes, everybody is excited. MashAllah, he’s here. He wants to give a little talk. So we came to a school in Qum called Hujadiyya. So just in case I get questioned by the FBI or CIA or anbody else, I don’t know Sayyed Nasrallah, I’m not one of his boys, he was there, it’s Eid! Anyhow, so he’s giving this lecture and he says a beautiful beautiful hadith which illustrates this point. The Prophet—in this hadith—is talking to Ammar, his companion. He’s telling him that there will be a time after me when there will be a lot of division among the Ummah. They will be taking swords to one another. They will be seeking distance from one another. So what the Prophet did was he gave Ammar the criteria of Haq (truth) and where to be. The Prophet told Ammar: If everyone goes into a valley—all of the people are in one valley—but Ali ibn Abi Talib goes into another Valley, you go into that valley that Ali ibn Abi Talib goes into and leave the people. You follow Ali. And Sayyed Nasrallah—when he was speaking to us—this was years before the victory in Lebanon—he said, “Brothers. I’m going to tell you right now, I’m going to be frank with you. If all the Ullama go into a valley, and Sayyed Ali Khamenei goes into a valley, go into the valley that Sayyed Ali Khamenei goes into.” Right now, when times are tough, you don’t know where the truth is. Everybody is talking. Just remember the words of the man who is more old school than all of us—Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah.

Why didn’t Imam Ali (as) react when he witnessed his wife being attacked by Umar khattab & Co.?
The argument usually put forward by the sunni sect is :
How could Imam Ali (as), the one dubbed the “Lion of Allah” who single-handedly removed the Gate of Khaibar, witness his wife (as) being attacked, and not react?
Answer:
In order to deny the attack of Umar b. Khattab on Lady Fatima (as) and her household, Sunnis have put forward many baseless arguments. One of the most common arguments they use is something like this:
“Will a Muslim who is witnessing his wife being attacked show no reaction and just watch the assailants and allow them to do what they want? Especially someone like Amir al-Mu’minin who was the “lion of Allah” and showed much heroism in the wars he fought! We cannot accept the fact that Umar attacked Lady Fatima because if he had, Ali (as) would have stopped him and confronted him. History shows that such a confrontation never occurred!”
Shia scholars throughout history have repeatedly shown that this argument is baseless and Imam Ali (as) had reacted very strongly.
The strong reaction of Amir al-Mu’minin Ali (as) against Umar ibn Khattab
When Umar and co. attacked the house, Amir al-Mu’minin Ali (as) showed strong reactions and stood up against Umar. He threw him on the floor and punched him in the face and neck. However, since Imam Ali (as) was ordered to be patient, he stopped and chose the path of patience, just as the Messenger of Allah (s) had ordered him. Imam Ali (as) wanted to show them that if he (as) had not been ordered to be patient, and if the order of Allah was other than this, no one could even consider doing such a thing to the Ahl al-Bait (as). Nevertheless, Imam Ali (as), as always, obeyed the divine orders.
Regarding this event, Sulaim b. Qays al-Hilali who was one the greatest companions of Amir al-Mu’minin (as) writes the following:
“Umar asked for fire and set the door on fire. He then pushed the door and went in. Fatima (as) confronted Umar and shouted: ‘Ya Abata! Ya RasulAllah! (Oh father! Oh messenger of Allah!).’ Umar raised his sword while it was in its sheath and hit Fatima (as) on her side. She cried: ‘Ya Aabta! (Oh father).’ Umar raised his whip and hit Fatima’s (as) arm with it.
She (as) wailed: ‘Ya RasulAllah! (Oh messenger of Allah!) How evil are Abu-Bakr and Umar (acting) after you have left!’
Ali (as) jumped up and grabbed Umar by the collar while pulling him by force. He then threw him on the floor and hit him on the nose and neck, wanting to kill him. However, He (as) remembered the order of the messenger of Allah (s) and his will and said: ‘O son of Sahhak! I swear by the one who gave Muhammad (s) high stature by assigning him as a Prophet, if it was not because of what Allah had destined, and the covenant between the Prophet (s) and me, you would have known that you couldn’t enter my house!’” [1]
1. Sulaim b. Qays, The book of Sulaim, p.568
Aloosi the famous Sunni interpreter (mufassir) mentions the following from Shia sources:
“Umar got angry and set fire to the door of Ali’s (as) House and entered. Fatima (as) confronted Umar and cried: ‘Ya Aabta! Ya RasulAllah! (Oh father, Oh Messenger of Allah).’ Umar raised his sword while it was in its sheath and hit Fatima (as) on her blessed side and then raised his whip and struck her arm. She cried again: ‘Ya Abta!’ (By seeing this) Ali (as) grabbed Umar by his collar and forcefully threw him to the floor then hit him on the nose and neck.” [2]
2.Al-Aloosi, Tafsir Rooh al-Ma’ani, vol. 3, p.124
Imam Ali and his Submitting to the will of The Prophet (s)
Imam Ali (as) was obedient to the divine orders throughout his life and all of his actions and behaviors were based on divine order. He had never reacted to any situation as a result of prejudice, anger or self-profit. Imam Ali (as) was ordered by Allah and The Messenger (s) to be patient in confronting these great tragedies, therefore, he did what he was ordered and didn’t unleash his sword. Below we will show a few narrations which directly mention the Prophet’s (s) orders to Imam Ali (as) to have patience regarding the events which would happen when he passed away.
Sayyid al-Radi (the author of Nahj al-Balagha) narrates in his book Khasa’is al-A’imma from Imam al-Kazim (as), that he asked his father Imam al-Sadiq (as): “What happened after the Prophet (s) gained consciousness?” Imam al-Sadiq (as) had answered:
“The women entered while crying and wailing. The Muhajirin and Ansar gathered behind the door and screamed with grief. Suddenly the Prophet (s) asked: ‘Where is Ali?’ Ali (as) came forward and entered. Ali (as) said: ‘I entered and hugged the Prophet (s).’ He said to me: ‘My Brother… these people will leave me and they will be busy with their affairs. The example of you is like the Ka’ba which Allah has made a sign so that people would come to it from deep valleys and faraway places, but the Ka’ba does not go to those places. I swear by Him who has sent me (as a Prophet), I warned them of great punishments after I informed each one of those men about your rights and I committed them to obey you and they all answered (positively)and submitted to you, but I definitely know they will act the opposite of what they have pledged. Once I leave this world and you have acted upon my will and placed my body in the grave, stay in your House until you compile the Holy Quran… Have patience regarding what will befall on you and her (Fatima) (as) until you meet me.’” [3]
3.Al-Radi, Khasa’is al-A’imma, p. 73
Al-Majlesi, Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 22, p. 474
Sulaim b. Qays also narrates:
“The Prophet (s) then looked at Fatima (as), her husband and her two sons and said: ‘O Salman! I hold Allah as witness that I am at war with those who are at war with them, and have peace with those who are at peace with them. They will be in heaven with me.’ Then the Prophet (s) turned towards Ali (as) and said: ‘O Ali! Soon after me you will be troubled by the Quraish and their unity and tyranny against you. If you find supporters, then rise in jihad against them and with your followers fight with those who oppose you. If you do not find supporters, then pause and be patient. Do not destroy yourself by your own hands. Your position with respect to me is like that of Aaron (Harun) to Moses (Musa). Aaron (Harun) is a good example for you. He said to his brother Moses: ‘The people considered me weak and nearly killed me (Quran 7:150).’” [4]
4.Sulaim b. Qays, The book of Sulaim, p.569
We also mentioned in the first narration that Imam Ali (as) said to Umar:
“If it was not because of what Allah had destined, and the covenant between the Prophet (s) and me, you would have known that you couldn’t enter my house” [5]
5. Sulaim b. Qays, The book of Sulaim, p.568
The narrations regarding this matter are abundant and it is not possible to include them in this short article; therefore we will rely on these few narrations for now.
Truly, who but Imam Ali (as) can emerge successful from such a test? The value of his actions can only be understood when we realize that this is the same Imam Ali (as) who bravely fought against the enemies of Islam and the disbelievers like a Lion. One day he was winning over the Arab hero Amr b. Abdu-Wud and another he was splitting the head of the Jewish champion Marhab through his helmet. One day, Allah orders that the Dhulfaqar must be the nightmare of the disbelievers, and another, He orders that the same Dhulfaqar must stay in its sheath to preserve the foundations of Islam from its enemies.
The Possibility that Amir al-Mu’minin and Lady Fatima (as) could have been killed if Ali (as) reacted more harshly
Although defending ones family from enemies is one of the obligations that all men have, sometimes it is necessary that one controls himself in situations where the enemy is making provocative moves, to prevent the opponent from reaching his objectives.
If Imam Ali (as) had used his sword on those who attacked his house, he would have given them a good excuse to kill him. There was the possibility that in between this, Lady Fatima (as) would have also been martyred, causing their enemies to spread rumors that Imam Ali (as) sacrificed his wife in order to reach worldly powers. Then they could have easily labeled Imam Ali (as) as the killer of Lady Fatima (as), the exact plot they used on Ammar, the loyal Companion of Imam Ali (as):
When the Prophet (s) was building the Mosque of Medina, Ammar would bring two bricks at a time for building while others would only bring one. When the Prophet (s) saw this, he removed the dust from Ammar’s face with his own hands and said:
“Mercies be upon Ammar, he will be killed by a rebellious aggressive group. Ammar will invite them to Heaven and they will invite him to Hell.” [6]
6.Al-Bukhari, Sahih al-Bukhari, vol. 3, p. 1035, no.2657
English translation of Sahih Bukhari, Vol. 4, Book 52, No. 67, Available Online
Everyone was aware that the Prophet (s) had said this and when Ammar was killed by Muawiya’s people in the battle of Seffin it was clear for everyone that Muawiya and his people were the “rebellious aggressive group”. Ahmad b. Hanbal narrates the solution Muawiya came up with:
“When Ammar b. Yasir was martyred, Amr b. Hazm went to Amr b. al-Aas and said: ‘Ammar has been killed and the Messenger of Allah (s) had said: ‘A rebellious, aggressive group will kill Ammar.’’ Amr b. al-Aas stood up very frightened. He then started saying ‘we belong to Allah and to Him we will return’ until he reached Muawiya. Muawiya asked: ‘What do you want?’ He said: ‘Ammar has been killed.’ Muawiya said: ‘So what that Ammar has been killed!’ Amr replied: ‘I heard the Messenger of Allah (s) say: ‘A rebellious aggressive group will kill Ammar.’ Muawiya said: ‘May you fall in your urine if we killed him! Ali and His men killed Ammar. They brought him here and placed him between our swords and spears!’” [7]

“This Hadith is authentic based on the criteria of Bukhari and Muslim, but they have not narrated it like this.” [8]
8.Al-Hakim al-Nisaburi, al-Mustadrak, vol. 2, p. 155
Al-Munawi narrates the following regarding the narration about Ammar’s death:
“This narration is amongst the strongest and most authentic narrations. Since Muawiya couldn’t deny it, he said: ‘He who had brought Ammar with him has killed him.’ Ali (as) replied like this: ‘(If so) then Hamza was also killed by the Prophet (in the battle of Uhud), because it was he who took Hamza with him.’
Ibn Dahiyya says: ‘This answer of Ali (as) is so strong that it leaves no room for an answer and it is a reasoning that prevents any objection.” [9]
9.Al-Munawi, Faid al-Qadir Sharh al-Jami al-Saghir, vol. 6, p. 366
Imam Ali (as) made the best decision
Amir al-Mu’minin (as) had to choose between saving Islam and sacrificing his rights for it; or fighting with that small group and killing them but allowing the enemies of Islam and the hypocrites, to take advantage of the situation and put Islam in danger. Amir al-Mu’minin (as) chose the second option and with this sacrifice he prevented the enemies of Islam from destroying it and shattered their hopes. This was surely the most logical choice.
Regarding this matter Imam Ali (as) says himself:
“Then I began to wonder whether I should rise against them without supporters or endure the blinding darkness in which the grownups become weak and the young become old and the true believer is tormented till he meets Allah (on his death). I found that enduring these was wiser. So I adopted patience although I felt as if ‘there was dirt in the eye and suffocation in the throat’*. I watched my inheritance being looted…” [10
*Used to show extreme hardship or torment
10. Sayyid al-Radi, Nahj al-Balagha, Sermon No. 3
Furthermore, when Abu-Sufyan – a man who used every opportunity for his own advantage – came to Him and offered his support to fight against Abu Bakr, Imam Ali (as) delivered a sermon and said:
“O People! Disrupt the waves of mischief by the ships of deliverance…, Prosperous is he who rises with wings (of power and defeats the enemy) or else he remains peaceful and others enjoy ease…, If I speak out they would call me greedy towards power and if I keep quiet they would say he was afraid of death. It is a pity that after all the ups and downs (I have been through they would say such things). By Allah the son of Abu-Talib (as) is fonder of death than an infant is of the breast of its mother. Verily I have hidden knowledge that if I disclose, you will start trembling like ropes hanging in deep wells.” [11]
11.Sayyid al-Radi, Nahj al-Balagha, Sermon No. 5
Why didn’t the Prophet (s) defend Summaya and the other Women of Islam?
The way Imam Ali (as) reacted was exactly like how the Prophet had reacted in the beginnings of Islam when Muslims were weak and had no means of defending themselves.
Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani writes:
“Summaya the daughter of Khabbat was the Mother of Ammar b. Yasir. She was the seventh person who accepted Islam. Abu-Jahl tortured her andrepeatedly stabbed her below her abdomen until she was martyred. She was the first martyr lady of Islam… The tribe of Bani-Mughayra tortured her because she had become Muslim and was not willing to give it up. The Messenger of Allah would pass by Ammar, his mother and his father (Yasir) while they were being tortured in a place near Mecca and would say to them: ‘O family of Yasir! Be patient for our meeting place is Paradise.’” [12]
12.Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani, Al-Isaaba Fi Tamyeez Al-Sahaba, vol. 7, p. 712
Although the Messenger of Allah (s) witnessed a kafir like Abu-Jahl torturing the women of Islam, he did not show any reactions and only ordered them to be patient. Why didn’t the Prophet (s) who was the bravest and most sympathetic man in the world, not defend Summaya? Why didn’t He unleash his sword and cut off Abu-Jahl’s head?
Why didn’t the Prophet (s) interfere and show any reaction when Umar b. Khattab would torture the women of Islam and would beat them up for accepting Islam? Why didn’t he stop him because of these actions:
Ibn Hisham in Sirat al-Nabawiyya writes:
“Abu-Bakr came across a Muslim slave girl who belonged to Bani-Muammil who were (people) from the tribe of Uday b. Ka’b. Umar was beating her so that she would renounce Islam and it was in those days that Umar was still a polytheist (mushrik). He beat her up until he became tired! and said: ‘I have an excuse for not beating you, it is because I am tired!!!’ The slave said in return: ‘May Allah treat you the same way.’” [13]

Whatever answer Sunnis have regarding the patience of the Prophet (s) and him doing nothing when the Muslim women were being beaten up or killed, we will use the same answer for the patience of Amir al-Mu’minin (as).

anonymous asked:

Salamu Aleykum! Considering the comparison you made between Isa (as) and Imam Mahdi (as), I have to say that as a sunni, I never mocked any of the shias beliefs but your argument was bogus : Imam Mahdi (as) was not a prophet, so it is vain to compare him to Isa (as) who as a messenger of God could benefit from miracles. Ramadan Kareem!

Wa3alaykum Salam!

I’m glad to hear that as a Sunni, you’ve never mocked any beliefs of your Shia brethren, Alhamdulillah.

However, your argument that Prophet Isa (as)’s rank is higher than Imam Mahdi (as) and therefore he could benefit from miracles is quite bogus too! Why?

The rank of Imamat (the position of a divinely- appointed leader) is higher than that of prophethood and messengership. Note that here we are comparing the rank of positions and not the rank of persons. As such, two divinely appointed Imams which both have the highest possible position from Allah, may have different ranks. For instance, out of the twelve Imams of Ahlul-Bayt, Imam ‘Ali (as) is the most virtuous. Also Prophet Muhammad (S) is more virtuous than Imam ‘Ali (as) thought they were both appointed by Allah as leaders.

Evidence From the Qur’an:

People who are familiar with Qur’an to some extent, know that this belief is not a weird-thing. In fact, Qur’an testifies that the position of Imamat is higher than the position of prophethood and messengership. Allah, to whom belong Might and Majesty, said:

“And when Abraham was tested by his Lord with certain commands and he fulfilled them. Then He said: Lo! I appoint you an Imam for mankind.”(Qur’an 2:124).

وَإِذِ ابْتَلَىٰ إِبْرَاهِيمَ رَبُّهُ بِكَلِمَاتٍ فَأَتَمَّهُنَّ قَالَ إِنِّي جَاعِلُكَ لِلنَّاسِ إِمَامًا قَالَ وَمِن ذُرِّيَّتِي قَالَ لَا يَنَالُ عَهْدِي الظَّالِمِينَ

As we can see, Prophet Abraham was further tested by Allah during his prophethood, and when he successfully passed the tests (which were the test on his life, leaving his wife, sacrificing his son), he was granted the position of Imamat. This shows position of Imamat is higher in degree than prophethood which has been given to him later after acquiring more qualifications. Degrees are always granted in ascending order. We have not seen any person who got his Ph.D. degree first, and then gets his highschool diploma. At least in the administration of God there is no such mess!


Also, it’s interesting that you’re making the claim that Prophet Isa is higher than Imam Mahdi when your books claim he says otherwise when he returns, and that in fact he will pray behind Imam Mahdi (as).

Who is your brothera” He replied, “Ali bin Abi Talib.” He was asked, “Who is your great grandsona” He replied, “Mahdi, who shall fill the earth with justice and equity like it would be fraught with injustice and oppression. By the One in Whose hands is my life! Even if a day remains for the earth, the Almighty Allah will prolong this day till my son, Mahdi reappears and Isa bin Maryam descends to the earth and recites prayer behind His Eminence. The earth shall be illuminated from the east to the west.” Source: [ Fara'id al-Simtayn. p. 43.]

Meaning of Bismillah

Allah, Rehman, and Raheem are used one after the other. “Allah” points towards tauheed and then Rehman is used. Rehman is the One who provides for everyone without bias. If He showed bias, then this would have been zulm. Providing for everyone equally is adl and thus this word indicaes adl. As a consequence of this principle, hadayat becomes an essential need (as He has to provide equal opportunities for guidance). He fulfilled this need via nabooat and Imamat. Lastly, Raheem was used to indicate that He will reward those (who followed His guidance). This sheds light on the idea of Qayamat and thus in this way the entirety of Usool e Deen were described.

From ‘Then I was guided by M. al-Tijani’ / The period of his Imamat coincided with the most revolutionary era of Islamic history which saw the downfall of the Ummayad Caliphate and the rise of the Abbasid Caliphate.
It was due to the political strife between two groups- the Umayyads and the Abbasids for power that Imam Ja`far al-Ṣadiq ع was left alone undisturbed to spread the teachings of Ahlulbayt. he was able to teach openly and shīʿa school started to be called Jaʿfarī school.- on 148 AH; The sixth imam was martyred by al-Mansur ad-Dawaniqi, the `Abbasid caliph. His school of jurisprudence is followed by Twelvers, Ismailis and Alevis, as well as a small minority of Zaidis. / The Jaʿfarī School is the law system of the twelver shīʿa islam (Ithnā'ashariyyah or Imāmīyyah). Jaʿfarī is also used as another name for the twelver shīʿah reflecting the integration between law and theology in the creed. In many texts and books, Jaʿfarī and Twelver shi'ism is not distinguished, but presented as one orientation. — Tore Kjeilen, Lexicorient by brothermane http://ift.tt/1Ijz80X

Narrated Sad: Allah’s Apostle set out for Tabuk. appointing ‘Ali as his deputy (in Medina). ‘Ali said, “Do you want to leave me with the children and women?” The Prophet said, “Will you not be pleased that you will be to me like Aaron (Harun) to Moses (Musa)? But there will be no prophet after me.” - Sahih al Bukhari; Volume 5, Book 59, Number 700.
When Nabi Musa (as) left his town, he appointed Nabi Harun (as) as the person in charge. When RasulAllah Muhammad (saww) left his town, he appointed Ameer Al-Mo'mineen Ali (as) as the person in charge.
“How could the person who didn’t leave Madinah without appointing a successor, leave this religion without appointing a successor?” - Dr. Sayed Ammar Nakshawami

Dosa

Pada beberapa mitologi agama samawi, peleburan dosa dilakukan dengan sakramen sakral. Beberapa diantaranya dengan upacara pengorbanan. Seperti Yahudi dalam Kitab Perjanjian Lamanya:

“Dari umat Israel ia (Harun) harus mengambil dua ekor kambing jantan untuk korban penghapus dosa dan seekor domba jantan untuk korban bakaran. Kemudian Harus mempersembahkan lembu jantan yang akan menjadi korban penghapus dosa baginya sendiri dan dengan demikian mengadakan pendamaian baginya dan bagi keluarganya (Imamat 16:5-6)”

Mengutip pernyataan Arthur Findlay, Pater Eddy Kristiyanto dalam bukunya Misteri Naskah Laut Mati menjelaskan Sinagoga (rumah suci Yahudi) di Yerusalem disebut Arthur sebagai rumah pembantaian yang dinamakan rumah suci. Pater juga mengutip kata-kata Plange, “Kitab Perjanjian Lama itu memang sesungguhnya ditulis dengan darah”. Pater menyebut banyak ‘upacara darah’ dan 'upacara penyembelihan binatang korban.’

Pengorbanan (pembantaian) yang berani (berdarah) itu, seakan megisyaratkan betapa getirnya manusia akan dosa, juga gandrung akan nilai kesucian. “Dosa” punya kuasa, ia mampu meredam, meredam polah yang berlabel “Dosa”. Bilamana tak mampu, ia akan mendesak untuk lari ke tempat persembunyian, peleburan, atau apapun yang membuatnya lebih damai.

Di kawasan utara Thailand, perasaan berdosa menyelimuti ubun-ubun Suang Puangsri. Ia menggoreng kalajengking untuk jadi menu sajian andalanya. Dari sanalah perut Suang terisi, sampai perasaan berdosa datang menghantui. Suang merasa bersalah, penganut Budhhisme ini merasa telah melukai kalajengking selama bertahun-tahun. Hatinya terisak-isak merasa tak tenang.

Saung menebusnya, ia berhenti menjajakan kalajengking goreng. Sesekali Saung juga memborong kalajengking dari petani sebelum masuk dapur restoran. Ia pun hidup dengan ribuan kalajengking peliharaan dirumahnya. Dengan begini, Saung sedikit merasa lega. Ia melanjutkan hidupnya dengan jalan yang lain.

Hidup Saung seakan kembali dimulai dengan rasa yang baru, dengan bayang-bayang belenggu dosa yang telah enyah. Meski sejatinya, peleburan ini tak mengembalikan keadaan seperti semula. Tapi hidup harus terus berjalan, dengan gaya yang sedikit berbeda.

Beberapa orang tak menatap langit yang sama dengan Saung. Mereka berpikir bagaimanapun peleburan, bagaimanapun persembunyian, tak akan mampu mengembalikan waktu, materi, seperti keadaan semula yang suci, sebelum dinodainya. Pemikiran ini membuat mereka ringan saja untuk mempersingkat hidupnya. Sebelum ada dosa-dosa lain yang lahir. Sungguh, memang yang paling mematikan dari manusia ialah pemikiranya sendiri.

Kondisi semacam ini, mejadikan penting akan adanya sosok penebus dosa seperti Dewa Serapis, Baal, Adonis, juga Krisna. Merekalah yang memberikan pemahaman akan adanya dosa yang tak mungkin bisa dihindari, dosa yang ditakdirkan. Merekalah yang akan menanggungnya, agar roda kehidupan terus berputar.

Beberapa teolog menyebut, Tuhan Maha Pemaaf, Maha Pengasih, juga Maha Penyayang.

Prior to Muhammad (saw), God appointed the Imams from the families and descendants of previous Prophets, particularly Abraham.
God consistently favoured specific descendants of prior Prophets with the Book, the Wisdom, the Inheritance, the Kingdom, and the Guidance.
As we conclude, it should be noted that the Qur’an mentions in a number of places that the method or custom (sunnah) of God is never altered and remains the same from age to age.
Such is the Custom (sunnah) of God concerning those who passed away before, and never shall you find in the Custom of God any change. (Qur'an 33:62)
The question that immediately comes to mind is this: if God consistently designated the successors, guides, and Imams from the family descendants of the Prophets before Prophet Muhammad, why would this custom (sunnah) of God suddenly change after Muhammad?

60. Shias believe in the concept of 12 Imams
61. The Imams are appointed (mansoos alaih) by Allah just as the Prophets

81. The supplications of the Ambiyaa are accepted through the mediation (tufail) of the Imams
82. The reason for Aadam Alaihi Salaam not being included among the Ulool Azam Ambiyaa is that he was jealous of the status of the Imams
83. Ibrahim Alaihi Salaam was first given nubuwwat, thereafter khullat (i.e. he was made the khaleel and bosom friend of Allah) and only then was he given imaamat
84. Ayub Alaihi Salaam was afflicted with a severe illness because he doubted the imaamat of Ali Radiallahu Anhu

Certainly the people are going to return to you and you will be responsible for taking their reckoning. The bridge (siraat) will be yours, the scale will be yours and the place of standing (mauqaf) will be yours!”
91. Many Shia narrations mention Ali Radiallahu Anhu’s title as “Distributor of Jannat and Jahannam”.

92. Allamah Baaqir Majlisi the famous Shia scholar writes in his book Hayaatul Quloob : “The status of Imaamat is higher than nubuwwat”.
93. The imams have knowledge of everything that occurred in the past and everything that will occur in the future and that nothing in the earth and skies is concealed and hidden from them

◕ about the Sahaba

They say that all Sahabah (ra) except 3 left Islaam after the death of the prophet (saw) [AnwaarNo'maaniyyah - P245. Vol 2. & Furu AlKafi, Kitaabul Raudah :15 - Mullah Muhammad bin Yaqoob Kulaini Vol 3 P115/ Usul -e-Kafi Vol 2, P 246 Rijaal Kashsi P504.]

They say that Abu Bakr(ra) Umar (ra) and Uthmaan (ra) robbed Ali (R.A) of his position of being Caliph. [Al-Ihtijaaj - Tabrasi 83, 84. & Haqqul Yaqeen, P 157.]

They say Umar (ra) was a 'Original Kaafir’[Haqqul Yaqeen , 551 & Kashful Asraar P119.]

One should dissociate with the 4 idols: Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthmaan, Muawiyya and 4 women Ayesha, Hafsa, Harid, Umm-al-Hakam.[Haqqul Yaqeen- Vol. 2 P519/ Furru Kaafi P342 Vol 3/ Jilaa - ul- Uyoom -P45 - 46 & Hayaatul Quluub P 375.]

One should curse the above after each prayer.[Ainul Hayaa P559.]

Most dirty and polluted left over water is that of a sunni.[Manlaa Yahuruldul Faqiah - Vol 1. P8.]

Not permissable to marry sunni because they are Kaafir.[Manlaa Yahuruldul Faqiah Vol 3 P258. ]

Sunnis created from soul of Jahannam and Shia’s created from soul of Jannat. [Usul-AlKafi.]


◕ About the Imams

All the Imams are infallible just like the prophets [Usool al Kafi, p. 22]

By listening to the voice of a person, the Imams can tell if the person was destined to go to hell or to heaven; they would thus answer his questions accordingly [Usool al Kafi, p.185]

The Imams possess all the knowledge granted to angels, prophets and messengers [Al-Kulaini, Al-Kaafi, p.255.]

The Imams know when they will die, and they do not die except by their own choice (Al-Kulaini, Al-Kaafi, p: 258)

The Imams have knowledge of whatever occurred in the past and whatever will happen in the future, and nothing is concealed from them (Al-Kulaini, Al-Kaafi, p. 260.)

_____________________________

the above beliefs and practice are should shed enough light on the deviant religion of Shiaism. Please be careful from Shia because they do not tell their follower the depth of Shiaism and its darkness side. I am an X-Shia and have been one since 1996. Long in on Sunni websites and pages and learn more about them. The following is a good and insightful page to learn more about Shiaism. “Shia Kafir”

______________________________

This video is one of the reasons of what truly separates Sunnis from deviant sect of the Shias. We (Sunnis) only call upon Allah as our Lord and God for our spiritual needs and etc. Shias call upon other (the Imaam’s whom they believe will answer their spiritual need) they contradict the Quraan 1:5; 72:18; 39:3 and many verses in the QURAN.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=Hj6rbsbum74 this video is in Arabic but translated at the bottom. May Allah guide you to the truth.


If you have further Questions please feel free to ask me, because Shia will not tell you all about their religion until one becomes addicted to it and the un-normal become normal in the hearts of their followers. Example they beliver that Mut'a (tempory pleasure sex) is better than normal wedlock/marriage..

Faith al-Kashani narrated in his book:
“From As-Sadiq: Mut’a is from my religion and the religion of my fathers, so whoever applies it applies our deen and whoever does not apply it rejects our deen furthermore he is following another deen, the son that is conceived through mut’a is better than the one conceived through a permanent marriage and who denies mut’a is a kaffir murtad.”
(Manhaj Al Sidiqin) by Fat’h AllAh Al Kashani page 356.

And he also narrated from prophet (sallalahu alaihi wa ali):
“Who makes mut’a once, it is as if he is on the level of Al Hussein aleihi al salam, and who commits mut’a twice then it is as if he is is on the level of Al Hassan aleihi al salam, and who commits mut’a three times it is as if he is on the level of Ali Ibn Abi Taleb aleihi al salam, and who commits mut’a four times then it is as if he is on a level like mine”. (Manhaj Al Sidiqin) by Fat’h AllAh Al Kashani page 356.

“Not a man who has made mut’a then washed except that Allah has created 70 angels for each drop of water that drops from his body so that they ask Allah to forgive this man till the day of judgment and curses his ennemies till the day the hour will be here.” “Muntaha Al Amal” volume 2 page 341, from imam as-Sadiq:

The shahaadah. Is the Testimony to Allah (3:18) and His Messenger (7:157; 3:81; 48:28, 61:6;

Addition and Subtraction to Allah’s religion Islaam is imperfection while Islaam is perfect (5:3). Addition in religion is Kufir and Shirk (4:171; 5;77; 42:21; 12:40; 9:31, 37; 33:67-69). The Shahaadah of Shiaism wherein Ali is added in an innovation and not backed up by the fundamental verses of the Quran which give root to Islaam (3:7). When Allah Sent Gabrial to teach the Muslims what Islam is, Muhammed replied to testify, that there is no god except Allah and Muhammed is His Messenger…No where did he added to it. Another Hadith the Prophet said “Islaam is built on 5 pillars” and nowhere is Ali mentioned. A bedeun once came and asked the the prophet what does he have to do to enter heaven the Prophet generally repeated the pillars of Islaam and the bedeun said “that he will neither add or delete to them. thereafter the prophet said if he (the bedeum) was saying the truth he will enter heaven.” Shias add Ali to “their” shahadah which is not the Shahaadah of Islaam prescribed by Allah and His Messenger. A Muslim is one whose foundition are the 5 pillars of Islaam. When one deviats from that then they are no longer Muslims. There are many other beliefs and practices that Shia in the past and presently add and subtract to Shiaism. Shiaism is a religion that is always evolving and devolving. This is imperfection and add insult to Islaam in the eye of the educated masses around the world.

Reasons why is it that shiite/shia is not a Muslims and Islam is not their religion.

Why are Muslims divided and why are there some deviant sect who claim to be Muslims.

The Qur'an replies this question in Surah Al Imran verse 103

“Hold to the rope of Allah strongly and be not divided”.

The rope of Allah SWT is the glorious Qur'an. The Qur'an also says obey Allah SWT and obey the rasul.

In Surah Al An'am it is written “If anyone breaks the religion and divides the religion into sects O Prophet you have nothing to do with him. Allah will look after His affairs on the day of judgement.”.

But when you ask the Muslim normally what are you, he says Sunni, or shia, or sufi, or hanafi, shafi, hambali, some say maliki, some say deobandi, some say Salafi, some say Jama'atul islamiyyah.

What was the Prophet Muhammad SAW? what was he? was he shia? hambali? shafi? no, he was a Muslim, simple as that.

Allah SWT says in the Qur'an in Surah Al Imran verse 52:
Jesus (pbuh) was a muslim

And in verse 67 Allah says
“Abraham was neither a Jew nor a Christian, but he was one inclining toward truth, a Muslim [submitting to Allah ]. And he was not of the polytheists.”

In Surah Fusilat verse 33 Allah SWT says
“Who is better in speech who invites in the way of thy lord, works righteousness and says that i am a Muslim”. In another part of the Quran Allah says “O people of the book (Muslims, Christians, Jews) come to common terms that is equitable between us and you, that we worship non but God, that we associate no partners with him, that we erects non amongst ourselves as lords instead of Allah. But if they turn away, then say, Bear witness that we are Muslims [submitting to Him].”

I am a Muslim, we are Muslims. no less than 22 places in the Qur'an Allah says call yourself a Muslim, call yourself a Muslim. Prophet Abraham in Surah Hajj asked God “make my children Muslims”. All the great scholars of Islam, Imam Abu Hanifa, Hanbal, Malik and Shafi (may Allah SWT have mercy on them and may Allah SWT be pleased with them all) if you ask them what are they, what reply will they give you? we are Muslims. All the scholars said if you find any of my fatwa which goes against Allah SWT and his Rasul, throw it on the wall. All of them came to help us to become better practicing Muslims, not to divide the religion.

In Surah An Nisa verse 59 Allah SWT says “O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best [way] and best in result”.

That verse clearly shows you can follow your scholars, Ulama and Sheikhs, but if they differ among themselves then you should go back to Allah and his Rasul because there is no confusion there. Where is the question of dividing the deen?

In Sunan Abu Dawud 4579 the Rasulullah SAW said “There will be 73 sects in Islam”, he is prophesying here, he said there will be, he was not saying “make”. in Tirmidhi Rasulullah also prophesized there will be 73 sects in Islam out of which all will go to hell except one, the sahabah/companions asked which one, Rasul said “those that follow me and my companions, those that follow the Quran and authentic Hadith”. Who are main companions of Rasulullah SAW? when Rasulullah SAW was asked who is his most beloved, Who amongst people are dearest to you? He said: Aisha. He was then asked Who amongst men? He said: her father, and he was asked again who is next? He said: Umar Bin Khattab. He then enumerated some other men. Ali (May Allah be pleased with him) pledged allegiance to Abubakar (May Allah be pleased with him).

Rasulullah SAW never raised the status of his relatives more than the rest of the Muslims and he prohibited the choice of the next ruler (no crown prince in Islam) even the Khalifah is equal with all Muslims.

Sunnah = what the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) says and does and those so-called Sunni is those who following this.

Salafi = to be like the first Muslims, this one is also Sunnah/Sunni

shia/shiite = what jewish “Ibn Salul” says and does.

and Sufi = to wear wool and stay in the hermitage.

ahmadiyah = the deviant group that claims they have their own prophet after Prophet Muhammad SAW.

shia created the first sect in Islam, they were the first innovators, at the time of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) people followed only his teachings and his behavior and i think you know what’s the synonym of following Muhammad’s (peace be upon him) teachings don’t you? the Sunnah/Sunni. so simple.

In one Hadith, Prophet Muhammad, (peace be upon him), drew a straight line in the dirt with a stick. He said, “This is the straight path to Allah SWT [meaning the Way of Islam].” Then he drew angles right and left off of the straight line and said, “These are the deviant groups (or sects of Islam) and each one has a devil calling to it.”

shia/shiite was the first sect in Islam.

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) mentioned that there would always be a main body of Muslims who would be on the straight path until the Last Day.

Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said; He had prayed and asked Allah for three things, but he was only granted two of them;

He asked Allah SWT that his nation (the Muslims) would not be destroyed by being out numbered. And Allah SWT granted that prayer.

He asked Allah SWT that his nation (Muslims) would not be destroyed from poverty. And Allah SWT granted that prayer.

He asked Allah that his nation (Muslims) would not be destroyed by being divided and fighting amongst themselves. And Allah SWT did not grant that prayer.

Additionally, the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, said that as the Jews and the Christians divided into 71 or 72 sects, that you (meaning the Muslims) would divide into 73 groups and all of them would be in HELL, except for ONE. And the “saved sect” would be those who remained on what he and his companions were on: “Quran and Sunnah.”

It is very true that Muslims need to be united into one Ummah, and one nation. However, we must be united on the truth, and we cannot compromise or negotiate on Islam. We cannot give up one belief in exchange for a deviant group to give up one belief. If we do so then it means we do not really believe that Islam has been revealed from Allah SWT, or else how can we buy and sell the religion of Allah SWT? Many Muslims so badly want all Muslims to be united that they sometimes also want to include deviant groups. They also attack anyone who tries to expose those deviant groups, and they accuse them with trying to divide the Islamic Ummah.

We must unite all Muslims on the Holy Qur'an and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), based on the understanding of the Sahabha and the Salaf, the early generations of Muslims who followed pure Islam before any innovations and deviations entered into it. We must unite based on the understanding of the great majority of the scholars of Islam, the scholars of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama'ah.

Unfortunately, many Muslims today who did not have the advantage of having Islamic education have fallen as victim to the lies spread by these deviant groups. This is especially Muslims who did not get an Islamic education and have no access to authentic Islamic materials. Therefore, anyone can start lying about Islam and making any claims and the people will fall victim to their lies because they do not have the proper Islamic background.

One of the most dangerous deviant groups today are the shia/shiite sect. The reason we says they are the most dangerous is because more Muslims have fallen as victim to their lies, and because the message they spreads are very destructive one. Their lies have demolished the belief of many Muslims, rendering them to become atheists or making them give up hope about Islam.

The reason for this is that the main message the shia sect tries to spread to Muslims is first of all to attack well-known Islamic personalities. They attack the Sahabah and accuse them of being unjust, Munafiqeen or even Kuffar. The second step is that they says that since these people were such bad people, then all the Islamic knowledge transmitted through them is false. By doing this they cancel out the entire Sunnah. The third step is to say that since all Islamic scholars based on their writings on the Qur'an and Sunnah, and since they claim the Sunnah has been falsified, then we should not trust any Islamic scholar.

Once the victim has seen all the foundations of his religion fall apart, and he doesn’t know what to follow anymore, they start adding in their deviant ideology. They tell him that Allah SWT has appointed certain Imams who have all the knowledge that Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) had. They tell him these Imams are infallible! They do not make any mistakes, and all their opinions are 100% guaranteed to be correct and in accordance with the will of Allah (swt)! They tell him these Imams even have knowledge of the Ghayb (unknown), and that they are superior in rank to the rest of the Prophets and Messengers of Allah (swt).

Then they tell the victim that Allah SWT, his Messenger and the infallible Imams have allowed temporary or mut'a marriage. This is a type of marriage which requires no contract and no witnesses and no minimum time limit! This type of marriage allows a man to pay a woman to marry her for one hour! In fact, the Shia recently suggested creating “houses of virtue” where women are available for temporary marriage, in order to fight against prostitution!

They also claim that it is allowed, in fact recommended, for them to beat themselves and injure themselves every year in memory of the murder of Al-Hussein (may Allah be pleased with him). We have all seen the horrible images every year of what the Shia do. Sometimes it is worse than the Christians, who crucify themselves in memory of Prophet Isaa’ (peace be upon him), as they falsely claim that he was crucified.

They also add that the holy Qur'an has been modified and falsified by the Sahabah (companions of the Prophet). After all, they claim that only a few (less than 10 by all accounts) of the Sahabah remained Muslim and the rest were Munafiqeen (hypocrites, non-Muslims at heart but claiming to be Muslims). The Shia will always deny this, however, their main source of knowledge after the holy Qur'an, a book named “Al-Kafi”, clearly states that the holy Qur'an we have today is only 1/3 the size of the original. Anyone interested can find “Al-Kafi” and verify this fact.

The Shia also tell the victim that by praying at the graves of the “saints” such as the Imams and other pious people, that your prayers will be answered and you will gain rewards. Of course, as Muslims we know that in Islam there are no “saints”, and praying to anyone except Allah SWT is shirk.

They also claim that their 12th Imam has disappeared hundreds of years ago, but that he is alive and that he will come back to rule the earth as Al-Mahdi. In fact, many Shia wait for him at the cellar where he is thought to be hiding!

But some might ask, with all these clearly deviant beliefs, how can the Shia convince any Muslim of their false beliefs?

First of all, the Shia work very hard to make it look as if the Shia deviant sect is just one of the four schools (madahib). They call their sect (the Jafari school), as if it is just like the four schools. The truth is that the differences between Islam and the deviant Shia sect are not only in fiqh issues, but also in Aqeedah and in the whole foundation of Islam, as we discussed earlier.

In addition, they always mention that they are followers of Ahlul Bayt, which makes it seem as if the rest of the Muslims are against Ahlul Bayt. They also mention the great injustice and the disaster of the killing of Al-Hussein (may Allah be pleased with him) and they arouse your emotions making you believe that the Sunnah Muslims are responsible for this crime!

This is completely false, since Muslims are the true supporters of Al-Hussein (may Allah be pleased with him). The deviant Shia sect were the original people who called on Al-Hussein (may Allah be pleased with him) to come to them to fight against the unjust rulers of the time, and once the battle was about to start they all abandoned him except for forty men who were martyred fighting with Al-Hussein (may Allah be pleased with him). This is why the Shia beat themselves when remembering him, because they were the ones who betrayed him and they felt guilty about that. Then the Shia continued this horrible practice year after year.

Therefore, by trying to portray themselves as one of the schools of fiqh, and hiding the fact that their aqeedah is different than the rest of the Muslims, and by arousing peoples emotions and love for Ahlul Bayt and Al-Hussein, the Shia are able to trick some Muslims. However, the sad reality is that most of those who are tricked by the Shia simply become non-practicing Muslims because of the doubts and wrong ideas planted in their heads.

Shiite/shia is a mix of a tiny bit of Islam, and a massive chunk of Judaism, Magi fire worship and Zoroastrianism (the religion of the Persians).

Tetapi kamulah bangsa yang terpilih,  imamat yang rajani, bangsa  yang kudus, umat
kepunyaan Allah  sendiri, supaya kamu memberitakan perbuatan-perbuatan yang besar dari Dia, yang telah memanggil kamu keluar dari kegelapan kepada terang-Nya  yang ajaib.

1 Petrus 2:9

Congratulations, congratulations to you, O Ali, you have become my leader (Mawlā) and the leader of every faithful Muslim
