And we seek refuge in Allaah from the evils of our own selves and fromour wicked deeds. Whosoever Allaah has guided, there is none tomisguide him. And whosoever Allaah has misguided, none can guidehim. And I bear witness that there is no other god except Allaah, alone,without partner or associate.
And I bear witness that Muhammad is Hisservant and messenger. May Allaah the Exalted bestow His peace andblessings onto Prophet Muhammad, upon his good and pure family as 2. It is intended through this translation of Al-Khutoot Al-Areedah topresent to readers of English, both Muslims and non-Muslims accurateinformation about the faith and tenets of the Shiite sect known as theTwelve Imamers or Jafaris.
It is essential for the Sunni Muslim to know the fact of the Shiitedeviation from the straight path of Islaam taught by the ProphetMuhammad sallahu alayhi wa salam and his noble Companions r. Al-Khutoot Al-Areedah clearly and briefly presents the actualteachings of the Shiites in general, and the Twelve Imamers inparticular.
The reader will derive from the text an unequivocalunderstanding of the Shiite sect and will distance himself from themand their beliefs.
He will realise that there can be neither reconciliationnor reunification of the Sunnis and the schismatic Shiites until andunless the latter renounce their perverse tenets. They must return to thepure unadulterated teachings of Islaam held and maintained by Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaah the Sunnis. It is hoped thatthe non-Muslim reader of this work will come to perceive the abysswhich separates the Shiites from the Muslim majority, and that he willno longer condemn all Muslims for the activities of one deviant sect.
And for this didHe create them, and the word of your Lord will be fulfilled: I will fillHell with jinns and men altogether. Surah Furthermore, Allaahs Prophet sallahu alayhi wa salam. When asked which it was, the Prophet replied: "The one,which adheres to my Sunnah way of life and the Sunnah of myCompanions.
Surah Shiism originated in the first century of Islaam as an exaggeratedaffection for and partisanship of Ahlul-Bait the family and descendants 4. Later on, itdeveloped into a set of misbeliefs and erroneous concepts whichultimately constituted a new religion; a religion other than that whichwas taught by the Prophet Muhammad sallahu alayhi wa salam , andby his Companions after him.
Furthermore, they reject the authentic compilations of thesacred traditions, such as those of the two great imams Al-Bukhari andMuslim. They consider all but a few-of the Companions of the ProphetMuhammad to be apostates, while they elevate their Imams to aposition comparable o that of the gods of ancient mythologyUnfortunately, some naive or simple-minded Muslims are inclined tobelieve that the Shiites of today have abandoned their deviant tenetsand have reverted to the right path.
Grounds for such a belief are yet tobe found. A detailed exposition of the Shiite distortions and misconceptions willfollow in this treatise, but at this point I will briefly touch on some ofthe views of the contemporary Shiite religious elite; the ayatullahs andmullahs whose commands are obeyed and slavishly adhered to by theordinary Shiite.
In a treatise entitled Tuhfatul-Awaam Maqbool, published recently,there appeared an invocation2endorsed by six of the most respectedcontemporary Shiite imams including Khomeini and Shariat-Madari. Those two illustrious caliphs, 5. Khomeini, in his book Al-Hukoomatul-lslamiwah the Islaamicgovernment , claims that the Twelve Imams are infallible, and he raisesthem to a level above the heavenly angels and the commissionedprophets of Allaah; he stresses: "Certainly, the Imam commands a noblestation and lofty position; a creative vicegerency to whos rule andpower submit the very atoms of all creation [!
Khomeini clearly admits this in his book Al-Huloomatul-Islaamiah:"Do you think that it is enough for us, with respect to-our religion, tocollect its rulings and directives in Al-Kaafi, then put it on a shelf andneglect it?
When the call to such a purpose is free from ulterior motives and islikely to yield more benefit than harm, and the call to unity is to bringthe people together upon the same understanding of aqeedah andmanhaj then it becomes incumbent on all Muslims to respond to it andto co-operate with each other to make it a success. Discussion of this call had increased in recent years, and had such apronounced effect that it attracted the attention of Al-Azhar University,one of the religious institutions of those who adhere to the four schoolsof jurisprudence of Ahlus-Sunnahs Sunni Muslims 5.
Al-Azhar fullyadopted the idea of bringing Muslim groups together and pursued itbeyond the limits of its authority that had been established in the timeof Salahuddin and maintained up until the present Al-Azharoverstepped its bounds in its desire to explore and to accommodatevarious schools of thought, the foremost of which is the school of theShiite Twelve Imamers. Therefore,this topic is timely and worthy of research, study and exposition byevery Muslim who has knowledge of the issue, in all its details and withall its ramifications.
Since religious issues tend to be controversial innature, they should be handled with wisdom, insight andstraightforwardness. The researcher must also be enlightened by 7. It may be remarked that with any contentious issue involving more thanone party, chances for its successful resolution are correlated-to theresponsiveness of the parties involved. With respect to the question ofbringing Ahlus-Sunnah and the Shiites closer to each other, it has beennoticed that a centre was established for this purpose in Egypt, financedby the government of a Shiite country.
This open-handed Shiitegovernment has honoured us with its generosity while it deprived itselfand the adherents of its own school of thought of its governmentalbounty It has also been noticed that it did not build such a lavishestablishment for the call to "reconciliation" in Tehran, Qum, Najaf,Jabal Aamil, or any other centre known for its propagation of the Shiiteschool of thought. These Shiite propaganda centres published during the past years booksthat make ones skin crawl and ones body tremble from the shock ofwhat is written therein.
Reading them utterly destroys any idea we mayhave entertained of developing mutual understanding and closenesswith their Shiite authors and the like of them. Among thesepublications is a book entitled Az-Zahraa, by Shiite scholars of Najaf,in which they alleged that Amirul Mumineen Umar ibn Khattaab, thesecond caliph, was plagued with a disease curable only by the water ofmen i. This filthy slander was noted by the scholar Al-Basheer Al-lbrahimi, the Sheikh of the Algerian ulamaa, during his firstvisit to Iraq.
A filthy soul, which produces such wickedness, is in agreater need of the call to understanding and reconciliation than we are. Their hatredreached such a point that they can utter the filthy words against Umaribnul-Khattaab that were noted above. Is it not fair to say that they should have restrained their malice andhatred against the first Imams of Islaam and that they should haveappreciated the noble stand of Ahlus-Sunnah toward Ahlul Bait, thatstand which never fell short in offering due homage and reverence tothe family of the Prophet?
Or do they consider us to be remiss in nottaking the family of the Prophet as gods to be worshipped along withAllaah, as they do? Without a doubt, responsiveness to each other is essential if two partiesare to achieve a mutual "coming together", reconciliation andunderstanding. This mutual responsiveness can only come about if thereare sincere efforts on both sides to achieve it.
As stated above, there is a "reconciliation" centre in Egypt, a Sunnicountry; there are also propaganda offices, which wage hostilecampaigns against those who do not favour such centres. One mightwell question the absence of such centres or their like in any Shiitecountry. One also may question why Al-Azhar University has includedinstruction in the Shiite school of thought, while the Sunni schools ofthought are still locked out of the Shiite educational institutions.
If the 9. Finally, one may question the value of beginning the process ofreconciliation by attending to differences of a minor or secondarynature, while fundamental differences have not yet been addressed. Yet unless and until thefundamentals are understood and endorsed by both parties, and untilthere is a favourable response to this from the religious institutions ofboth sides, it would be useless to waste time dealing with issues of aminor or secondary nature.
In fact, it is not merely in the fundamentals of jurisprudence that thereare differences, but also, and more importantly, in the fundamentalarticles of faith of each party, even in their deepest roots and origins.
The simple-minded Sunni is deceived by their pretentious display of the desire toovercome our differences and reach a common under- standing betweenthem and us.
In fact, they neither want such a thing nor approve of it. They do not strive for it, but rather leave it to the other party to comethe full distance to their position, without exerting an effort to make any Even if those Shiites who practice taqiyyah wereto convince us that they have moved a few steps in our direction, thenthe multitude of Shiites, be they ordinary people or the scholarly elite,would stand apart from those who adopted the ruse of objectivitytowards us, and they would not recognise them as their representatives;this because their actual belief does not permit them to reconcilethemselves with us.
At-Tabarsis book was printed in Iran, in A. They preferred thatthese allegations not be brought together in a single volume, and widelydisseminated, as their opponents could use it as a proof against them. He wrote this defenceof his original book two years before his death.
It mentions the granting of wilaayah sovereignty to Ali 8as follows: "O believers, believe in the Prophetand the wali, the two whom We sent to guide you to the straight path A prophet and wali who are ofeach other. And celebrate the praise of your Lord, and Ali is among thewitnesses. He was able to make aphotocopy of Surat-ul-Wilaayah with its Persian translation. This book, It also appeared in the Asian-FrenchNewspaper in C.
Without a doubt, this conversation is fabricated by the Shiites and isfalsely attributed to the Imam Ali bin Moosa Ar-Rida; however, thestatement is taken by the Shiites as a legal ruling in this matter. They are well aware that theyfabricated the statement they attributed to the Imam Ali bin Moosa Ar-Rida: " The alleged deletion is "andwe made Ali your son-in-law.
As for the fact that Ali was a son-in-law ofthe Prophet, it should be pointed out that Allaah also made Uthmaanbin Affaan the son-in-law of the Prophet through his marriage to two ofthe Prophets daughters. Upon the death of the second of Uthmanswives the second of the two daughters , the Prophet said to him, "If wehad a third one, we would have given her to you in marriage. He did not command the Muslims to record this"missing" portion, nor to seek guidance from it, nor to applyjurisprudential rulings derived from it.
They liked the book so much that theydecided to translate it into their own languages.
