Evidence that Proves the Falsehood of the Shia Madhab

Mahmood Shukri al-AaloosiRahimullaah said:

‘These proofs are either intellectual or narratives, as for the narratives then they are the Ayaat from the Qur’aan, the Ahadeeth and the Aathaar (sayings) of the Imams.

From the Qur’aanic Ayaat is the saying of Allaah Ta’ala:

<< Muhammad is the Messenger of Allaah, and those who are with him are severe against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and falling down prostrate in prayer, seeking Bounty from Allaah and His Good Pleasure. The mark of them (i.e. of their Faith) is on their faces foreheads from the traces of their prostration during prayers. This is their description in the Taurat. But their description in the Injeel is like a sown seed which sends forth its shoot, then makes it strong, it then becomes thick, and it stands straight on its stem, delighting the sowers that He may enrage the disbelievers with them. Allah has promised those among them who believe  and do righteous good deeds, forgiveness and a mighty reward (i.e. Paradise). >> [al-Fath: 29]

The scholars said this verse is a clear indication that the Raafidha are not Muslims because they hate the Companions of the Prophet , in fact they call them disbelievers![1] And Allaah’s help is sought.

Also from the Ayaat is the saying of Allaah Ta’ala:

<< And [there is a share for] those who came after them, saying, ‘Our Lord, forgive us and our brothers who preceded us in faith and put not in our hearts [any] resentment toward those who have believed. >> [al-Hashr: 10]

Those who have been mentioned in the Ayaah are the Companions and the Mothers of the Believers and whoever follows them in goodness, and whoever holds hatred in his heart for them then he is a destroyed loser, and whoever purifies his heart from the stains of hatred against them then he is the happy and successful one.[2]

Also we have the saying of Allaah Ta’ala:

<< And whoever opposes the Messenger after guidance has become clear to him and follows other than the way of the believers – We will give him what he has taken and drive him into Hell, and evil it is as a destination. >> [Nisa: 115]

The believers mentioned in this Ayaah at the time it was revealed were the Companions. The Raafidha follow a way other than the believers’ path and followed their own desires.

Also from the saying of Allaah Ta’ala:

<< Allaah has promised those who have believed among you and done righteous deeds that He will surely grant them succession [to authority] upon the earth just as He granted it to those before them and that He will surely establish for them [therein] their religion which He has preferred for them and that He will surely substitute for them, after their fear, security >> [Noor: 55]

And they are the Companions as was mentioned in previous pieces of research about Imaamship. So whoever opposes the Companions and shows them enmity then he is misguided. This Ayaah is also an evidence that the Shia are not from the followers of the Amir (Ali Radi Allaahu anhu).

Since verily Ali Radi Allaahu anhu was from those for whom Allaah Ta’ala had promised that which was mentioned in the preceding Ayaah. As for the Shia they claim that the Imams who are the rightly guided Khulafah (Abu Bakr, Umar bin Khattab, Uthmaan & Ali Radi Allaahu anhum) were cowards and hypocrites.

Also there is the saying of Allaah Ta’ala:

<< He who confers blessing upon you, and His angels [ask Him to do so] that He may bring you out from darkness into the light >> [Ahzab: 43]

Those being addressed here are the Companions and those who follow them and take them as an example.

And we have the saying of Allaah:

<< And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed – then it is those who are the disbelievers >> [Maidah: 44]

The Raafidha have ruled with other than what Allaah has revealed and they believe that the Companions were misguided and call them disbelievers yet Allaah Ta’ala has ordained that they the Companions will succeed and is pleased with them and He says:

<< and imposed upon them the word of righteousness, and they were more deserving of it and worthy of it >> [al-Fath: 26]

And we have the saying of Allaah Ta’ala:

<< But Allah sent down His tranquility upon His Messenger and upon the believers and imposed upon them the word of righteousness, and they were more deserving of it and worthy of it >> [al-Fath: 26]

And the intent here is the Companions and whoever is astray, away from them and deviates from their path is destroyed, and yet the Raafidha believe that to oppose the Companions is worship and this opposition is the basis of their Taqwa.’

[Taken from: ‘Ghareeb Fiqheeya ‘Inda ash-Shia al-Imameeyah’ p.19-20]

[1] Ibn al-Jawzi said: ‘The Companions will not be safe as they have angered the Kuffar – i.e. the Raafidha – because Allaah says that the Kuffar will be angered by them.’ [From: ‘Zaad al-Maseer’]

[2] Imam Malik said: ‘Whoever hates anyone of the Companions of Muhammad  or holds any hatred in his heart towards them, then he does not have the right to be from amongst the Muslims, then he recited this verse.’ [From: ‘al-Jamia lihakam al-Qur’aan’ by Qurtubi]
