The Ruling On The Raafidah – [Their Scholars And Common People]

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.

Question: Our Shaikh (may Allaah preserve you); the questioner says: What is the ruling on the common people of the Rawaafid (shia) and how do we deal with them?

Answer: The questioner differentiates between the common people and other than them. This is a good approach.  The common people who neither speak ill of the wives of the Messenger of Allaah [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] nor do they make Takfeer of the Sahaabah [radiyallaahu-anhum], nor do they believe that the Qur’aan is distorted; but they have some Rafd [i.e. beliefs of the raafidah] and some hatred for the Sahaabah without making Takfeer of them and what is similar to [these deeds]; then these ones are misguided innovators and we do not declare them disbelievers.

And whoever joins their heretics in pronouncing Takfeer against Muhammad’s [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] Sahaabah; speaking ill of the wives of the Messenger of Allaah [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] and the filthy belief that the Qur’aan has been distorted, and that there is an addition and deficiency in it, then this [person] is a Kaafir [disbeliever]- similar to the disbelievers of the Yahood and Nasaaraa. There is no differentiation between their common people and their scholars [in this affair].

Question: How do we deal with them? Answer: If dealing with them is with regards to a worldly affair—business transactions and what is similar to that— it is permissible to trade with a Yahoodi, a Nasraani and a Raafidee. However, as for co-operating with them in the affairs of religion, then never. [Allaah (The Most High)] said: [وَلَا تَعَاوَنُواْ عَلَى ٱلۡإِثۡمِ وَٱلۡعُدۡوَٲنِ‌ۚ -Do not help one another in sin and transgression][5:2] Rather their scholars and callers are boycotted and they are warned against.

Shia Raafidah of Iran: [Attempted Plots to Spread Their Kufr and Shirk Through Wealth and Education]

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.

The following article is an excerpt and paraphrase from a tremendous advice given by Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadee Al-Madkhalee [may Allaah protect him and prolong his life upon goodness] to the people of Misr [Egypt]

To proceed: 

Recently Iran requested Cairo to send 20,000 Egyptian students to study in Tehran under the sponsorship of the Iranian government; O people of Misr (Egypt)-the government and the citizens! Do you know the goal behind this generous Iranian offer to receive twenty-thousand Egyptian students under the sponsorship of its government? The purpose of this offer is to convert this huge number into a dangerous raafidi army that will wage war against Misr [Egypt] in order to convert it into a raafidi state and society. This is an affair understood by even the one who has the least acquaintance with Khomeini’s plans and the eagerness of the raafidi revolutionaries-those abominable plans to take over the Muslim world and convert it into a raafidi (shiite) world. Its activities in Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Yemen and other countries [is nothing else], but for the purpose of implementing this raafidi goal.

Indeed, the successful one is that one who learns a lesson from what has happened to others;

-Do you want Misr (Egypt) to be converted to a stronghold of the strongholds of Shiites- declaring the noble companions of the Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] to be disbelievers and falsely accusing them of hearsay?

-Do want Misr (Egypt) to be converted into a stronghold of the strongholds of Shiites-declaring Ahlus Sunnah and their former and later Imaams to be disbelievers?

-Do you want Misr [Egypt] to be from the rawaafid [shiites of Iran and others]-those who deify humans, so that they believe that the Imaams have mastery over everything of an atom’s weight in the existence? This is a type of ruthless disbelief and heinous polytheism which is even disdained by the Jews, Christians and the idol worshippers. The idol worshippers were asked who the creator of the heavens and the earth is; so they said: ‘’It is Allaah who created them.’’ And they were asked who the controller of the affairs of the creation is; so they said: ‘’Allaah is the controller of the affairs.’’ As for the raafidah (shiites of Iran and others), they say that their Imaams have control over everything of atom’s weight in the existence.

Here are some of their beliefs and views towards Ahlus Sunnah by the testimony of one who was affiliated to them and was from their scholars Sayyid Husain Al-Moosawee in his Book titled: Lil-laahi Thumma Li At-Taareekh page:83-92]- The author who left the shiite (raafidi) cult of disbelief and polytheism. He wrote:

When we look into our important books, the statements of our jurists and those scholars who strive to reach verdicts, we find that Ahlus Sunnah are the only enemy of the shiite, and for this reason they give them descriptions and call them names. They call Ahlus Sunnah Nawaasib (i.e. those who hate Ali and the family of the Prophet). The creed of the shiite community (i.e. the rawaafid of Iran etc.) has not ceased to be that every individual amongst Ahlus Sunnah is degraded through his/her anus. When a shiite (raafidi) insults another shiite and wishes to be extremely harsh in insulting him, he says to him: ”Sunni bones in your father’s grave.” This is because of their view that the Sunni is impure to a degree that if he/she were to bath a thousand times the impurity will still not leave him/her. This is the creed of all the (rawaafid) shiite and indeed our jurists compare the Sunni to a disbeliever, a polytheist and a pig, and they declare the Sunni an impurity from the types of impurities.

And because of this shiites hold that it is obligatory to differ with Ahlus Sunnah. Sudooq narrated from Ali Bin Asbaat who said: I said to Ridaa,”The affair has become that I cannot find anyone with his understanding and there is none amongst your allies in the country I am living who can give me a verdict? So he said: Go to the jurist of the land and seek a verdict from him; and if he gives you a verdict, then adopt its opposite because that is where the truth lies. [Uyoon Akhbaarul Ridaa 1/275 Tehran]

Sayyid Nimatullaahi Al-Jazaa-iree said: Indeed, we do not unite with them (i.e. Ahlus Sunnah)—neither upon a god and a prophet nor an Imaam, and that is because they (Ahlus Sunnah) say that their Lord is the One whose Prophet Muhammad was succeeded as Khaleefah by Abu Bakr. We (i.e. shiites rawaafid) neither speak about this Lord nor this Prophet; rather we say: Our Lord is not the one Whose Prophet was succeeded by Abu-Bakr as Khaleefah nor is that our Prophet. [Al-Anwaar Al-Jazaa-iriyyah 2/278]

Indeed, the hatred harbored by the shiite (rawaafid) towards Ahlus Sunnah neither started today nor is it specified to particular eras, rather it is a profound hatred harbored towards Ahlus Sunnah of the first generation-they hate all the Sahaabah besides Abu Dhar, Miqdaad and Salmaan. And for this reason kulaynee reported from Abu Jafar who said: ”All the people became apostates after the death of the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) except three people, namely: Al-Miqdaad Bin Al-Aswad, Salmaan Al-Faarisee and Abu Dhar Al-Ghiffaaree.” [Rawdatul Kaafee 8/46]

If we were to ask the Jews: ”who are the most virtuous people in your religion? They will say: ”Indeed, they are those who accompanied Moosaa (alayhis-salaam).” And if we were to ask the Christians: ”Who are the most virtuous people in your religion?” They will say: ”Indeed, it is those who aided Eesaa (alayhis-salaam).” And if we were to ask the shiites (rawaafid), ”who are the most evil people in your view and creed?” They will say: ”Indeed, it is the companions of Muhammad (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam).”

Indeed, the companions of Muhammad are mostly the ones who receive the most insults and curses of the shiite (rawaafid), particularly Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthmaan, and the two wives of the Prophet Aaisha and Hafsah. And for this reason it is found in a supplication of theirs called the supplication against the two idols of Quraish: ”O Allaah! Curse the two idols of Quraish Abu Bakr and Umar and their two Jibt and Taaghoot and two daughters [Aaisha and Hafsah]. [Note: Jibt and Taaghoot means false deities, satan, graves, stones, the sun, magicians, soothsayers or anything worshipped besides Allaah]. This supplication of the shiite (rawaafid) is recorded in their important books and khumeini used to supplicate with it every day after the Morning Prayer.

In the Iranian city of Kashan at a place called [باغي فين] [Baghi Fain] the shiite (rawaafid) visit a scene in which there is a tomb dedicated to Abu Lulu’a the (magian) murderer of the rightly guided khaleefah Umar Ibnul Khattaab (radiyallaahu-anhu). And on the walls of this tomb is written in Persian: ‘Death to Abu-Bakr; Death to Umar; Death to Uthmaan.’ This scene is visited by the Iranians and during their visit they give wealth and donations. I have seen this scene myself and the Iranian Ministry of guidance initiated its expansion and renovation.

Kulayni narrated from Abu Jafar who said: ”Indeed the two Shaikhs Abu-Bakr and Umar left this world and did not say what they did to the leader of the believers; so upon them is the curse of Allaah, the angels and all of mankind.” [Rawdatul kaafi 8/246]

Kulayni narrated:”Indeed all the people are children of fornication except those from our sect.” [Ar-rawdah 8/135]

The shiite (rawaafid) hold that Ahlus Sunnah are disbelievers and are worse than the Yahood and Nasaaraa. They hold that Ahlus Sunnah are children of prostitutes and it is obligatory to curse them, especially the first generation of Muslims [i.e. the companions of the Prophet (salal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) whom Allaah (The Most High) praised in the noble Qur’aan. The companions accompanied the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) in his call to Islaam and during his battles, and this participation of theirs is a proof of their truthfulness and sincerity.

Why is Your Soul Inclined to a Good or Bad person? Shaykh Uthaymeen

In explanation of the supplication for entering toilet, Shaykh Uthaymeen (rahimahullah) brought the following benefit.

It is said that the place for relieving oneself is dirty, and every place which is similar is the abode of the shayateen, due to His statement The Most High, 

الْخَبِيثَاتُ لِلْخَبِيثِينَ وَالْخَبِيثُونَ لِلْخَبِيثَاتِ 

Bad statements are for bad people (or bad women for bad men) and bad people for bad statements (or bad men for bad women). (1)

In explanation of this ayah, Imam as-Sadi (rahimahullah) said, “Every evil man and woman, statement and action is fitting, in agreement and similar to each other.” (2)

And this is from the wisdom of Allah, that he has made the evil souls incline to each other. And the righteous souls incline to each other, due to this the place of the angels is the masaajid, the masaajid are righteous places and their purpose is for the worship of Allah.

[6] Reflect And Sincerely Ask Allaah For Guidance – [Those Trapped In Soofiyyah and Grave Worship]

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.

Shaikh Abdur Razzaaq Al-Badr [hafidhahullaah] said:

Ahlus Sunnah do not have a name, except (names whose meaning refers back to the) Sunnah.  As for ahlul bidah, they either ascribe themselves to the person who innovated for them a religion or they are ascribed to the bidah they innovated. For example: Jahmi, Qadariy, Qaadiriy, Rifaa-iy, Raafidiy etc.

Ahlus Sunnah’s ascription to the Sunnah [of the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam)] is not a mere claim, rather it is an ascription based on reality. The claims of the (people) are numerous and if they are not established with proofs, then they are mere claims. Ahlus Sunnah do not have names, except names that return back to the Sunnah, such as:

‘Ahlul Athar’ [i.e. the people who cling to the authentic narrations of the companions and their followers].

‘Ahlul Hadeeth’ [i.e. the people who follow the authentic narrations of the Prophet (sallal laahu alayhi wasallam) in every aspect of the religion and do not give precedence to any other thing over it].

Ahlul Ittibaa [i.e. the people who strictly follow the authentic Sunnah of the Prophet and the companions and they do not innovate in the religion].

Ahlus Sunnah [i.e. the people who follow exactly the authentic Sunnah and path of the Prophet (sallal laahu alayhi wasallam)  in every aspect of his life-in creed, statements, actions etc]

As-Salafiyyah [i.e. the path of the Salaf (The Pious Predecessors)- and they are the first three righteous generations of Islaam (a) Prophet and his companions; (b) then those who followed them exactly in creed, methodology and understanding in all affairs of the religion; (c) and then those who followed exactly the true followers of the companions. These are the first three generations of Islaam whom the prophet (sallal-laahu-alahi-wasallam) informed us that they are the best of generations].
