Ali’s refusal to accept Caliphate and his desire to be an ordinary citizen of the Islamic State

Posted by answersforshiafriend on April 7, 2015

The author of the book Nahj al-Balagha – a reliable Shia source reports that Ali RadiaAllahu Anhu refused to be the Caliph after the martyrdom of Uthman when people gathered around him requesting him to assume the caliphate and besought them to accept their leadership.

Leave me alone; go in search of somebody else….If you leave me alone I shall be just like you as an ordinary citizen of the Islamic State…As a matter of fact I like to guide you and advise you more than I would wish to rule over you.1

These statements from the Imam nullifies the Shia madhab in totality, for how can he ask to be relieved from a post you believe has been ordained by Allah and acceptance of which Allah made compulsory upon all mankind and which you claim that Ali himself used to ask Abu Bakr to return to him?

Hasan or Hussain (ra) Who was right?

Posted by answersforshiafriend on September 1, 2015

Al-Hasan ibn Ali (ra) ceded the caliphate in favour of Muawiyah (ra) and sought peace with him, at a time when he was strong enough to keep on fighting – considering the enormous number of his army and helpers.

On the other side, we find that his brother al-Husain (ra) – revolted against Yazid at a time when he was in dire need of an army of helpers to defend his cause, a time when it would have been better to give up and seek peace.

One of these two great men must be right and the other wrong, because if al-Hasan’s secession joined with his ability to fight is the correct idea and action to be taken, then al-Husain’s revolt at a time he was devoid of any force would definitely be wrong. And if Al-Hasan’s revolt in weakness was correct, then the secession of al-Hasan when at full strength must be wrong.

This surely puts the shias in  very difficult dilema,for if they say both were  correct, they will be combining two contradicting actions and this will nullify the foundations of their madhab. But if they claim that al-Hasan’s action was wrong, then they must consider his being an imam to be null and void and the nullification of his imammah would result in nullifying the immamah and infallibility  of his father who gave him the legal mandate of being an imam after him.

The same holds true if they say that al-Husain’s action was false for that will necessarily invalidate him imamah and infallibility, which will consequently nullify the imamah and infallibility of his whole progeny. If the basic foundation is false, whatever stems from it automatically becomes false.

If the Shia Imams know their time of death… why were they all killed or poisoned?

Posted by answersforshiafriend on August 31, 2015

Al Kulaini states in his Al-Kafi : ” The Imams know the time of their deaths and that they die  if they so wish” [1]

And we find Al-Majlisi- in his Bihar al Anwar – mentioning a hadith which says: “None of the Imams died a natural death; each of them was either killed or poisoned.”[2]

Now if the Imam knows the unseen(ghaib) as purported by Al-Kulaini and al-Hurr al Amili, he would definitely know which drink or food he was given, and if it happened to be poisoned, he would know and decline to eat or drink it. But if he goes on to eat or drink it, knowing fully well that it was poisoned, then he must be seen as committing suicide and Prophet Muhammad Salllalahu Alayhewasallam has expressly stated that whoever kills himself will be in the Hell fire. Would the Shias, then, accept this fate for their Imams

1.Al – Usul Min al-Kafi (1/258) and Al-Fusul Al-Muhimmah of al-Hurr al-Amili (p.155)

2. Bihar al-Anwar (43/364)


Usool al- Kafi that is a collection narrations and traditions attributed to the Shiite Imams, Ahlul Bayt and the Prophet. Al-Kafi is the MOST reliable Shia Book, as the reliable Shia Scholars said and declared . Its author is Thiqat al-Islam Muhamad Ibn Yaqoob AlKulayni (A VERY reliable Shia Scholar, died in 328 H). Some Shi’ites scholars believe usool Al-Kafi was presented to the legendary Imam Qaem who liked it and said: “It suffices our Shi’ites” (al-Tharee’ah ela Tasaneef al-Shi’a: Agha Buzurg al-Tahraani; vol.17, p.245)

Al-Kafi is a collection of Hadiths attributed to the prophet Muhamad p.b.u.h and The Infallible Imams -according to Shia- and like AhlSunnah, who give much importance to their Hadith book (Saheeh AlBukhari), Shia give the same or maybe even more importance to their Book (Al-Kafi) . Unlike AhlSunnah who call AlBukhari’s Book as (Saheeh AlBukhari), Shia do not call Al-Kafi as (Saheeh Al-Kafi), nevertheless, Shia treat Al-Kafi as it is (Saheeh) and their most reliable scholars declare it as a (Saheeh) .

Where was Ali r when the door of Fatima(ra) was allegedly broken?

Posted by answersforshiafriend on August 31, 2015

The Shias claim that Fatima( Radiallahu Anhu) the dear daughter of Rasool Allah sallalahu alayhe wasallam was disgraced at the time of Abu Bakr RadiaAllahu Anhu and that her ribs were broken and her house was nearly burnt and she was made to miscarry a child in her womb whom they named Al Muhsin.

The question here is where was Ali radiallahuanhu and what was his stance on the issue?  Why didn’t he collect and deliver what they believe was her right and return it to her despite what is known historically of his excessive courage and bravery.?

The Children of Ali named Abu Bakr and Umar (ra)

Posted by answersforshiafriend on April 7, 2015

Some Questions That Led The Shia Youth to the Truth

Q3: After the death of Fatima, Ali  Radiallahu Anhu married a number of wives from whom he had a number of sons among whom were:

  • Abbas ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib
  • Abdullah ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib
  • Jafar ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib
  • Uthman ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib
  • Their mother was Ummul Banin bint Hizam ibn Darim

Also among them were:

  • Ubaidullah ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib
  • Abu Bakr ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib
  • Their mother was Laila bint Madud ad Darimiyyah

Also among them were:

  • Yahya ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib
  • Muhammad Al Asghar ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib
  • Awn ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib
  • Their mother was Asma bint Umais


  • Ruqayyah bint Ali ibn Abi Talib
  • Umar ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib who died at the age of 35
  • Their mother was umm Habib bint Rabiah

The question here is, would a father give his deal and most beloved sons the names of his most bitter enemies? What more if that father was Ali RadiaAllahu Anhhu. Why would Ali name his sons with the same names of those you claim to be his enemies? How can any reasonable person name his beloved ones with the same  names of his bitter enemies?

Are you people aware of the fact that Ali was the first member of the Quraish tribe to name his sons Abu Bakr,Umar and Uthman.

Question 2: Ali (r) accepting allegience to Abu Bakr and Umar (r)?

Posted by answersforshiafriend on April 6, 2015

Some Questions themat led the Shia Youth to the Truth

Q2: The Shias claim that Abu Bakr and Umar (r)  were unbelievers. But we find that Ali (r), an infallible Imam according to the shias, accepted and endorsed their caliphates and pledged his allegiance to each of them, one after the other and never revolted against them.

Here one must accept that Ali was not infallible, because he gave his allegiance to two infidels, two Nasibis, two oppressors (Astaghfirullah) and accepted them as caliphs, and this , ofcourse, nullifies his infallibility, as he may be seen as an accomplice to oppression, for he had helped two oppressors,an action that is unbecoming of an infallible imam.

Or they must accept his actions to be right because they (Abu Bakr and Umar) were two believing, truthful and just caliphs. If this latter alternative is the right choice, then the shias have totally gone against their imam, for we find them abusing, vilifying and speaking ill of Abu Bakr and Umar (ra) and do not accept them as caliphs. One is therefore left confused, either to follow the steps of their first infallable Imam Ali or of the Shias who have gone against his practice.

Some Questions That Led Shia Youths to the Truth: Question 1 Infallibility of Ali RadiaAllahu Anhu

Posted by answersforshiafriend on April 6, 2015

Unavoidable Questions

1. The Shias believe that Ali (radiAllahu Anhu) was infallible. Nevertheless, we find him  – as confessed by the shias themseleves – giving his daughter Umm Kulthum, the full sister of al-Hasan and Husaain (RadiAllahu Anhu), in marriage to Umar ibn Al Khattab  (RadiAllahu Anhu). The Shias must here accept one of two bitter choices:

First: That Ali (r) was not infallible, for he gave his daughter in marriage to an unbeliever and to believe this definitely contradicts the main foundation of the Shia Ideology. Not only this, it goes further to nullify the claim of infallibility of all other imams who came after him.

Second: That Umar (r) was a Muslim and that Ali accepted to be his father in law and accepted him to be his son-in-law.

The Belief of Al-Bada which the shias believe in

Posted by answersforshiafriend on April 6, 2015

Al-Bada means to appear after having been hidden. It also refers to the birth of a new opinion. Both these meanings suggest that ignorance preceded knowledge and are impossible in the right of Allah,but the Rafidah impute this to Allah, the Exalted.

In their hadith book Usool – Al-Kafi the following hadith is attributed to Ar-Ridah.

ar-Rayan b. as-Sulut saud: “I heard Ar-Ridha saying: ‘Allah has not sent a Prophet but to prohibit intoxicants and affirm the belief of al-Bada for Allah.'” (Usool ul Kafi pg 40)

Abu Abdullah said: “Allah has not been worshipped with anything better than believing that He is affected by al-Bada. (Usool ul Kafi for al-Kulaini vol 1, pg 331)

Far removed is Allah from this imperfection.

Dear brothers, look at what Allah says in the Quran and compare it to the doctrine of the Shias.

Say None in the heavens and earth knows the unseen except Allah, and they do not perceive when they will be resurrected. (Quran 27:65)

Abu Bakr Al-Siddeeq (May Allah be pleased with him):

1.      The Messenger of Allah (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: ‘Follow the example of those after me: Abu Bakr and Umar.’ [1]

2.      He was the first adult male and the first free man to accept Islam; [2]

The Prophet (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wassallam) informed his Companions (radhiyAllahu ‘anhum) that, whenever he invited a person to Islam, that person would hesitate before making up his mind to embrace Islam – except for Abu Bakr (radhiyAllahu ‘anhu), who neither hesitated nor wavered. [3]

3.      Immediately upon embracing Islam, Abu Bakr (radhiyAllahu ‘anhu) made it his primary mission in life to spread the message of Islam to others. [4] Many embraced Islam at his hands; here are some examples: ‘Uthmaan ibn ‘Affaan, ‘Abdur-Rahman ibn ‘Auf, Sa’d ibn Abee Waqqaas, Az-Zubair ibn Al-‘Awaam and Talhah ibn ‘Ubaidullah (radhiyAllahu ‘anhum). These particular five were the fruits of Abu Bakr’s Dawah. Once these five brave men entered the fold of Islam, others began to follow. [5]

4.      The Prophet (sallAllahu ‘alaihi wassallam) said: “Abu-Bakr has favored me much with his property and company. If I were to take a Khalil (an intimate friend) from mankind I would certainly have taken Abu Bakr.” [6]

5.      He was the one and only companion whom RasulAllah (salAllahu’alayhi wasallam) chose to accompany him in the Hijrah to Madinah. [7]

6.      If the eman of Abu Bakr was put on one side of the scale and the eman of this entire Ummah on the other, Abu Bakr’s eman would have outweighed. [8]

7.      Throughout his life, the Prophet (salAllahu’alayhi wasallam) appointed only one man to lead Muslims in prayer in his place, and that man was, ofcourse, Abu Bakr (radhiyAllahu ‘anhu). [9]

8.      When the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) died, people fell into a state of shock and disbelief. It was Abu Bakr (radhiyAllahu ‘anhu) who then brought them back to their senses, saying to them his now-famous words: “Whoever used to worship Muhammed, Muhammed has indeed died. And whoever used to worship Allah, Allah is alive and never dies.” [10]

9.      He was the first khalifah after the death of Muhammed (sallAllahu’alayhi wasallam) [11]

10.   Abu Bakr (radhiyAllahu ‘anhu) was the first to begin the compilation of the Qur’an, under the advice of Umar (radhiyAllahu ‘anhu). [12]

11.  Abu Bakr (radhiyAllahu ‘anhu) said, “I do and apply (in terms of actions, policies, etc.) everything that the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wasallam) did and applied, for I fear that, if I abandon any part of his way (or system of rule), I will go astray.” [13]

12.  Abu Bakr (radhiyAllahu ‘anhu) lived in the moment, using every second of his time to better himself as a Muslim.

Abu Huraira reported that the Messenger of Allah (sallAllahu ‘alaihi wassallam) said to his companions, “Who has observed fast among you today?” Abu Bakr (radhiyAllahu ‘anhu) replied, “Me.” He (sallAllahu ‘alaihi wassallam) said, “Who among you followed a funeral procession today?” Abu Bakr (radhiyAllahu ‘anhu) replied, “Me”. He (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wassallam) said, “Who among you has fed a poor person (today)?” Abu Bakr (radhiyAllahu ‘anhu) replied, “Me”. He (sallAllahu ‘alaihi wassallam) said, “Who among you visited a sick person today?” Abu Bakr (radhiyAllahu ‘anhu) said, “Me.” Upon this the Messenger of Allah (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wassallam) said, “Anyone in whom (these good deeds) are combined will certainly, enter paradise.” [14]

13.  Abu Bakr (radhiyAllahu ‘anhu) died at the age of 63, which was the exact age at which the Messenger of Allah (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wassallam) died. As per his instructions, [15] Abu Bakr (radhiyAllahu ‘anhu) was washed by Asmaa bint ‘Umais (radhiyAllahu ‘anha) and was buried alongside the Messenger of Allah (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wassallam). [16]

Fundamental Shi’ite Beliefs

Author: Abdullah ibn Muhammad As-Salafi | Pages: 87 | Size: 1 MBAn important book shows the corrupt belief of Shi’ites. The author said in the introduction, “I wrote this book for a number of reasons including: (1) The increased efforts of the Shi’ites to spread their ideology in the Muslim world. (2) The danger of this deviant sect poses on Islam. (3) The ignorance of many Muslims about the danger of this deviant sect. (4) The corrupt Aqeedah (belief system) of the Shi’ites, which includes polytheism, defamation of the Quran and defamation of the Companions of the Prophet, may Allah be pleased with them all.

The Iranian Saqifah Banu Sadah

Posted by answersforshiafriend on September 23, 2013

Will the Shia admit that they reached a blocked road and they dropped Imamah altogether like Khomeini did?

Which leads us to our next point, the Iranians and their leader Khomeini realized that the Mahdi was never coming out, so either they take matters into their own hands and elect a leader and rule the nation or their Shia sect was doomed to disappear, and with it all their authority and power and wealth.

The philosophers from among the early Shia came up with the belief that the leader must be divinely appointed by text, and that he must be infallible and all knowing.

The average laypeople from among the Shia agreed to this, they found it logical maybe.

Then they had to ask these genius scholars of theirs, “al-Imam al-`Askari has died, where is our infallible appointed leader now?”

The scholars replied: “Wait for him, he had a son and we have strong proofs that he was born and will re-appear.”

So the poor Shia waited days and months and years and decades and the man never showed up, and whenever they would ask their leaders, the reply would be: “Wait for him, we have strong evidence that he exists!”

After reaching a stage of desperation, some of these Shia started saying: “Come let us find ourselves a leader who is not appointed or infallible.”

So the genius scholars based on their brilliant intellect came up with some criteria, and they told their followers: “Yes but the leader has to be a jurist(Faqih) and he needs to be just.”

The followers said: “Okay, we agree.”

So they went to pick their leaders thus slamming their Twelver `Aqeedah against the wall!

And if we were to take a very brief look at the Iranian constitution today, which is headed by the Shia clergy we would find it in opposition to their beliefs as we shall illustrate below:

Article 5
During the Occultation of the Wali al-Asr (may God hasten his reappearance), the wilayah and leadership of the Ummah devolve upon the just (‘adil] and pious [muttaqi] faqih, who is fully aware of the circumstances of his age; courageous, resourceful, and possessed of administrative ability, will assume the responsibilities of this office in accordance withArticle 107.

Article 107
After the demise of the eminent marji’ al-taqlid and great leader of the universal Islamic revolution, and founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ayatullah al-’Uzma Imam Khumayni – quddisa sirruh al-sharif – who was recognized and accepted as marji’ and Leader by a decisive majority of the people, the task of appointing the Leader shall be vested with the experts elected by the people. The experts will review and consult among themselves concerning all the fuqaha’ possessing the qualifications specified in Articles 5 and 109. In the event they find one of them better versed in Islamic regulations, the subjects of the fiqh, or in political and social Issues, or possessing general popularity or special prominence for any of the qualifications mentioned in Article 109, they shall elect him as the Leader. Otherwise, in the absence of such a superiority, they shall elect and declare one of them as the Leader. The Leader thus elected by the Assembly of Experts shall assume all the powers of the wilayat al-amr and all the responsibilities arising therefrom. The Leader is equal with the rest of the people of the country in the eyes of law.

Article 6
In the Islamic Republic of Iran, the affairs of the country must be administered on the basis of public opinion expressed by the means of elections, including the election of the President, the representatives of the Islamic Consultative Assembly, and the members of councils, or by means of referenda in matters specified in other articles of this Constitution.

Article 7
In accordance with the command of the Qur’an contained in the verse (“Their affairs are by consultations among them” [42:38]) and (“Consult them in affairs” [3:159]),  consultative bodies – such as the Islamic Consultative Assembly, the Provincial Councils, and the City, Region, District, and Village Councils and the likes of them – are the decision-making and administrative organs of the country. The nature of each of these councils, together with the manner of their formation, their jurisdiction, and scope of their duties and functions, is determined by the Constitution and laws derived from it.

— END —

We will now compare the reality of the Shia today, with the beliefs they preach on their TV channels and books and websites such as the famous Shia website “al-Islam”, let’s compare it to the book they uploaded called “Imamate: The Vicegerency of the Prophet (s) by Sayyid Sa’eed Akhtar Rizvi”:

[When Allah orders that man to do something yet is aware that man cannot do it or that it is very difficult without His assistance, then if Allah does not provide this assistance, He would be contradicting His own aim. Obviously, such negligence is evil according to reason. Therefore lutf is incumbent on Allah.]

So Allah orders the Shia to follow the Imams of Ahlul-Bayt (who are only 12), yet they are unavailable today thus according to this introduction Allah is evil Astaghfirullah!

[The Shi’ahs believe that, like the Prophet, an Imam should excel the ummah in all virtues, such as knowledge, bravery, piety and charity, and should possess complete knowledge of the Divine Law. If he does not, and this high post is entrusted to a less perfect person when a more perfect one is available, the inferior will have been given preference over the superior, which is wrong in reason and against Divine Justice. Therefore, no inferior person may receive Imamate from Allah when there exists a person superior to him.]

The Shia will tell you the Mahdi exists yet they are being led by Khamine’i, this means they are committing great injustice.

[Secondly, an Imam is the ruler and head of the ummah and the ummah should follow him unreservedly in every matter. Now, if he commits a sin the people would be bound to follow him in that sin as well. The untenability of such a position is self-evident; for obedience in sin is evil, unlawful and forbidden. Moreover, it would mean that he should be obeyed and disobeyed at one and the same time; that is, obedience to him would be obligatory yet forbidden, which is manifestly absurd.]

Which means that following Khomeini was absurd since he’s liable to err.

[Fourthly, the Imam is the defender of the Divine Law and this work cannot be entrusted to fallible hands nor can any such person maintain it properly. For this very reason, infallibility has been admitted to be an indispensable condition to prophethood; and the considerations which make it essential in the case of a prophet make it so in the case of an Imam and caliph as well.]

If infallibility was essential then why elect a fallible man like Ahmadi Nijad and follow him?

[It is for this reason that the Shi’ah Ithna ‘Asharis (The Twelvers) believe that only Allah can appoint a successor to the Prophet; that the ummah has no choice in this matter-its only duty is to follow such a divinely-appointed Imam or caliph.

The Sunnis, on the other hand, believe that it is the duty of the ummah to appoint a caliph.]

Apparently the Iranians adopted a “Sunni” constitution then.

[The following verses of the Qur’an confirm the views held by the Shi’ahs:

And thy Lord creates what He wills and chooses; they have no right to choose; glory be to Allah, and exalted be He above what they associate! (28:68).

This clearly shows that man has no right to make any selection; it lies entirely in the hands of Allah.]

This is pure Shia genius right here, I’m guessing it also means I cannot make the choice of going to the toilet or what pattern is my apartment wallpaper going to be.

[If the ma’sum (infallible) angels were given no say in the appointment of a caliph, how can fallible humans expect to take the whole authority of such an appointment in their own hands?]

Maybe the writer of this book can ask his 13th Imam Khomeini. Khomeini and his followers all gathered in their parliament or in Saqifat bani Sa`idah as I like to call it, and they appointed their own fallible men.

May Allah guide us to what he loves and pleases.

Shia clinging to weak narrations in Sunni Books but claiming their 1122 tawatur hadiths on Corruption of Quran are weak thus zero

Posted by answersforshiafriend on September 23, 2013

The way of the Shia is to cling to any random weak narration and make it an undisputed historical fact if it happens to agree with their beliefs and if it supports their case against the companions of the Prophet (SAWS). However, if a narration is quoted against them, you will see them researching and citing sources and studying the authenticity and the text and trying to give various interpretations in order to defend their Madhab.

Their scholar Murtada al-`Askari is no different than all his other companions when it comes to hypocrisy, this man wanted to defend the Shia religion because they were being accused of believing in the corruption of the Qur’an. Their books are fully loaded with narrations about how the Qur’an was altered and changed by the companions of the Prophet (SAWS), and how the virtues of Ahlul-Bayt were deleted from it and such…

Shia scholar al-`Allamah Muhammad Salih al-Mazindarani says in “Sharh al-Kafi” 11/76:

[The deletion of some parts of the Qur’an and its corruption was established in our sources with Tawatur, as it is apparent for those who observe the books of Hadith from beginning to end.]

Shia scholar Sultan Muhammad al-Janabidhi says in “Tafsir Bayan al-Sa`adah fi Maqamat al-`Ibadah” pg.19:

[Know (O reader) that a plentiful amount of narrations from the pure Imams state that additions and deletions and corruption and change have taken place in it, in a way that leaves no doubt.]

Shia scholar Muhammad al-Lucknawi wrote in “Darbat Haydari” 2/78:

[The claim that no corruption took place in the Qur’an is apparently corrupt, because the narrations showing this corruption have reached Tawatur.]

Shia scholar `Abdullah Shubbar said in “Masabih al-Anwar fi Hall Mushkilat al-Akhbar” 2/294-295:

[Most of what is in our hands today is the Qur’an that was revealed upon the Prophet (as) and many parts of it have been removed, as proven by the great amount of narrations that are almost Mutawatir, and we have clarified this in our book: Muniyah al-Muhasileen fi Haqiyat Tareeq al-Mujtahideen.]

Shia scholar Muhammad Mahdi al-Naraqi said in “Minhaj al-Ahkam” under the chapter “Hujjiyat Zawahir al-Kitab”:

[Deletion has taken place in the Qur’an, meaning: Parts of it have been removed, even if we do not know specifically where it is, as shown by the many un-contradicted narrations and proofs.]

The Shia belief that narrations reaching Tawatur from the Imams state that the Qur’an was corrupted, this belief has been reported by many Shia scholars that we cannot mention now so that we do not go off-topic, one of their scholars called al-Noori al-Tabrasi has collected a huge amount of these narrations, their scholar Muhammad Hadi Ma`rifah wrote in “Siyanat al-Qur’an” pg.239:

[What al-Noori had collected from narrations of corruption, are more than a thousand and one hundred (1122) to be exact.]

Now we return to Murtada al-`Askari who wanted to defend his Madhab from the accusation of corruption, wrote a three volume set called “al-Qur’an wa Riwayat al-Madrasatayn”, in the third volume which is 847 pages, he went through 1062 narrations of corruption and rejected all of them, by weakening their chain of transmission or by giving them a suitable interpretation, he then said at the end of his book:

[al-Sheikh al-Noori and Ihsan Ilahi Zaheer have quoted 1062 narrations which they claimed prove the corruption of the Qur’an, and by the favor of Allah we have studied them one by one, their chains and their texts, and we found that all of them share one of two things:

Either their chains contain extremists or liars or unknown or weak narrators, or the text is only an explanation for the verse as opposed to their claim that it was erased from it, and at many times both.]

And finally he declares on page 874, that all those narrations are “zero” and they amount to nothing at all!

I say: First of all, if this hypocrite were to apply his methods of weakening narrations, to all the Shia books of Hadith, then their entire library of books would become one big zero, not one narration would be left!

Shia: Writing History According to their Desires

Posted by answersforshiafriend on September 23, 2013

Writing history according to their desires:

The way of the Shia since their first appearance was a twisted one, it is a twisted reading of history that reflected negatively on their writings, which are in turn based on following their desires when it comes to accepting a narration or rejecting it. They pick the books that back up their views, and from these books they hand pick the narrations that benefit them, and from these narrations they take only the parts that suit them, and finally they interpret those parts in ways that agree to their twisted understanding of history. Also from their way, is to accept the version of history that suits them regardless of authenticity, they would pick the fabricated narration even if it is contradicted by many authentic ones.

This is why their version of history is a dark and depressing one, where the first generation of Islam and best of men were turned to a bunch of thieves and hypocrites, where the great conquests of Islam were pictured as the evil ambitions of these men, and that their purpose was only to expand their influence and enjoy material wealth.

The Attack method of the Shia

Posted by answersforshiafriend on September 23, 2013

The sane Shia must know that their scholars have adopted a twisted method to defend against every criticism directed towards their Madhab, it is a method they use every-time their opponents defeat them in debate or silence them with clear proofs or prove to them the corruption of their Madhab. We shall explain below:

Whenever a criticism is directed towards the Imamiyyah proving to them that they have a certain problem, you will see them trying to prove that their opponents the Ahlul-Sunnah have similar a similar problem.

In other words, instead of:

1- Proving through Islamic texts that the matter is not a problem and that the ones throwing the accusation are wrong.

2- Agreeing that there is indeed a mistake on their part, and admitting that they have a problem, and then calling their followers to abandon it and correct it.

Instead of fixing the problem and defending their Madhab, we see the Shia scholars hurling similar accusations on other Madhabs in an attempt to escape those criticisms.

In order to make this clearer for the reader, I place in your hands one out of many live examples:

When the opponents of the Shia criticized them for adding the following expression to their Adhan “I bear witness that `Ali is the friend of Allah”, and they told them that this is a forbidden innovation and that the Imams narrated narrations that did not contain this expression and that they also narrated that innovations are evil, the Imami Shia scholars attacked Ahlul-Sunnah with “Prayer is better than sleep” as if telling us: “Why do you oppose us in this when we are all doing innovations at the end of the day?” .

I say: There is no doubt about the corruption of this method, because the goal of this method is not to prove the truth and reach it. It’s only goal is to change the subject and escape the criticism, like two men who met and one of them told the other: “You are a thief!” so the other man responded by saying: “Well you’re also a thief!” and by doing so he admitted that he himself is one!

This also makes the Shia Madhab a reactionary one that is affected by the Madhab of Ahlul-Sunnah, and they would follow them like their tail, so whatever Ahlul-Sunnah agree on or decide will be the standard to be used in authenticating or weakening or proving right from wrong. Also this method is based on the opponent  being from Ahlul-Sunnah, so what if the opponents were from the Waqifi Shia or even a Twelver such as ibn Babaweih al-Qummi? Would this method work with him? Or would the Shia scholars be stuck then? More importantly what will be their answer in front of Allah on the day of judgment?

This is why it is the duty of every Shia that when he sees one of their scholars on the Mimbar defending his Madhab by attacking Ahlul-Sunnah, that he should tell him to abandon this twisted method and give a proper scholarly refutation to the problem.

Part 1 of the book by an ex-Shia – al-Salatu Khayrun min al-Nawm

Posted by answersforshiafriend on September 23, 2013

Part 1 of the book by an ex-Shia – al-Salatu Khayrun min al-Nawm
Shias allege that the wording As Salatu Khairun Min An Nawam were added by Umar (ra) and were not part of the original Athaan. They bring this up when they are asked about the addition in the Kalimah. This book eloquently removes the misconception stating many Sahih Authentic Hadiths proving that these words were indeed in the Athaan of Bilal (ra) from the time of Rasool Allah (s)

Giving Dawah to Shia

بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

Download pdf : Ali Ibn Abi Talib by Dr.Ali M.Sallabi

Posted by answersforshiafriend on September 18, 2013

UPDATE:  Download pdf of this book from

Download Vol 1 | Download Vol 2

Ali Ibn Abi Talib The Rightly Guided Caliph ( 2 volume set )

Succession to the Prophet…The murder of `Uthman and the quest for justice…The Battle of the Camel…Ahl al-Bayt…Caliphs and Imams…Moderation and extremism…

This book is far more than a biography, as it discusses major issues that have their origins in the early decades of Islam, the repercussions of which are still felt today. In this book, Dr. Sallabi guides the reader through a myriad of hadiths and reports, peeling away the centuries-old layer of fabrications and distortions through which hostile elements both in the Muslim world and beyond sought to conceal the truth. What emerges is a clear picture of the first great turmoil that engulfed the Muslim world and how the noble Companions of the Prophet and the members of his family worked together to resolve these momentous issues, following the guidance and teaching brought by the Messenger of Allah.

The true battle for hearts and minds is that which is raging in the Muslim world today, where many vested interests are seeking to distort the very self-image of the Muslims. It is high time for us to reclaim our history and to stop letting others tell it for us. This book is of great importance as it sets the record straight on a period of our history that is of major significance. Every Muslim who cares about the big issues faced by Islam and Muslims should read this book.

For those who want to delve  deeper into understanding the shia religion and its refutation by one of the best Ahlus Sunnah Scholar Ibn Taymiyyah (ra), should definitely read this book. It is available as a pdf and  I originally downloaded it from here. Jazakallah to those who made it available.

Kalimah of Shia Vs Kalimah of Ali Radiallahu Anhuma

Posted by answersforshiafriend on September 16, 2013

What is the Kalimah – The statement of faith of the Shia? We all know the answer.. it is

“La’ilah illa Allah Mohammad-ur-Rassol-ullah Ali’un Wali’ullah Wa’wasi-ur-Rassol-ullah”

There is no god but Allah , Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah and Ali is the Wali and Wasi of Rasool Allah.

Now lets see what is the Kalimah of Ali RadiaAllahu Anhum from their own shia source ‘Nahjul Balagha’. “Nahjul Balagha” is a book containing the sermons of Ali radiallahu anhuma and is a very highly regarded book by the Shias. However the source of this book is unknown and its authenticity is questionable so just like the Bible, it contain sermons of Ali, some of which appear to be fabricated and some appear to be the real words of Ali as they are aggreable to Quran and Sunnah.  So in one of the Sermons of this book, you can read the Kalimah of Ali RadiAllahu Anhum and decide for your self as to who loves and follows Ali more. The Shias or the Ahlus Sunnah.

Sermon 113 page 296

For those who want to approach the realm of Allah through good deeds, the following are the best ways to achieve success:

The first and foremost is to have complete faith in Allah and His Holy Prophet Peace Be Upon Him,the second is to exert oneself in the service of Allah to the best of one’s capacity,because such endeavours are the sublime heights of the glory of Islam; Thirdly the repetition and belief in the words of devotion “Asshadu Anla Ilaha Illallah wa Ashhadu Anna Muhammaan Rasool Allah. Because they are the basic concepts of the religion of Islam; (Sermon 113 page 296 Peak of Eloquence, Islamic Seminary Publications)

We love Rasool Allah and his Sahaba and love to follow their way that is why the Kalimah of the Ahlas Sunnah Wal Jamah is the same as the Kalimah of Ali (ra) as it was the same as the Kalimah of Abu Bakr and Umar and Usman (ra) and of Rasool Allah Sallalahu Alayhe Wasallam.
