This is due to the extremism they have with regards to the cousin of Prophet Muhammad, Ali, to whom they base their origin. They claim that the succession of Ali was mentioned in all of the scriptures revealed to the previous prophets. They claim that all humans will be asked about the succession of Ali on the Day of Judgment, and that if anyone believes differently, they are considered polytheists. Although Ali (radiallahuanihu) was known to be one of the most pious of the companions of the Prophet, in no narration can we find that Prophet Muhammad ever mentioned his succession in rule. On the contrary, early Shiite works, attribute this belief to Abdullah ibn Saba’, a renegade who claimed Islam & plotted against the Caliph Uthman, and also claimed that Ali was God Himself. Thus, it is clear that these beliefs are all innovations never preached by Prophet Muhammad (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam).

The Shiites believe that there was a scripture revealed after the Qur’an before the death of the Prophet, which they call the ‘TABLET OF FATIMAH’. They claim, that in it were the names of all those who were to be their Imams in the future. The Shiites became so extreme in their beliefs, that they even attempted to insert chapters about Ali (radiallahuanihu), in the Quran, since they could not find any clear texts. One of them is what they called “The Chapter of Succession”. See details http://islamqa.info/en/45563 http://islamqa.info/en/34577 http://islamqa.info/en/12103

They invented these ideas due to the fact that they could not find any verses in the Qur’an which they could use to defend their views. When they failed at the attempt of inserting a chapter in the Qur’an, they did not cease, but went on to directly challenge the authenticity of the Qur’an today by stating that it has not been preserved & that it is incomplete. They say that we Muslims, have merely 30% of the original & the 70% is with their run-away 12th Imam who has been in hiding for over 900 years in ‘the cave’ ; after he was said to have miraculously disappeared at the age of 9yrs.They say, he is the one in charge of the world & shall return as imam Mahdi at the end of time. When he comes, they claim he will resurrect the worst of disbelievers (Allah forbids) according to them Abu-Bakr, Umar, Uthman, Aisha (may Allah be pleased with them all & he shall flog them & then crucify them).They believe that when he emerges he will bring forth the complete version of the Qur’an. Allah says otherwise

“Verily it is We Who have sent down the Reminder (QUR’AN) and surely, We will guard it (from corruption)” (Quran 15:9).

Shiism has no basis in any of the teachings of Islam, rather, it is a conglomeration of foreign beliefs evolved over a period of time, all of which revolve around extremist views concerning the leadership of certain favoured candidates, known as their Imams; a life and existence solely based upon love of Ali and claim to leadership. They say creations came into being, Prophets are sent and Scriptures are revealed, all for the purpose of succession of Ali and the latter Imams, and even on the Day of Judgment, it will be their Imams, not God, who will judge people. A religion based upon a falsely claimed love of the family of Prophet Muhammad has lead them to beliefs contradicting the very essence of the message brought by him.

Other  jaundiced views & beliefs they have include MU’TAH (Temporary Marriage/Zina).They say committing zina of mutah for times, elevates one to the rank of prophets. They also believe that  chain of Prophethood is not complete & that Imaamat is the fifth pillar of Shiism; those who reject it are Kufaar  in their cult of shiism. They say TAQIYYAH is Fardh; practice of concealing the truth for the purposes of misleading unsuspecting people into their fold. They believe & falsely claim that after Rasoolullah (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam)  died, all the companions apostatized (left  the fold of Islam) except  4 or 7 (Salman Farsi, Abu Zarr Ghaffari, Miqdad bin Aswad & Amaar bin Yaasir (may Allah be pleased with them all).Surprisingly, they forgot  or deliberately did not to add the name of Alli (a pious companion of the prophet who they  take as their god incarnate) in that fabricated report in their books. They make cursing of all other companions….(especially Abu-Bakr, Umar& Uthman), cursing the wives of the prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam) who Allah described as mothers of the believers….(especially Aisha, Hafsa) a pillar of their faith. “The Prophet is closer to the believers than their own selves, and his wives are their mothers (as regards respect & marriage)”[Q33:6]. “….say not to them a word of disrespect” [17:23]. See details http://islamqa.info/en/47572. http://islamqa.info/en/954


They mourn annually the death of Alhussain (prophet’s grandson) & cut themselves until they bleed & consider karbala; where he was matyred  as holier than Makkah & Madinah. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-J5tE3weJ8  http://islamqa.info/en/9055 http://islamqa.info/en/14631 http://islamqa.info/en/4033 http://islamqa.info/en/14007 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOR1NYTXwjg This is why they carry in their pockets baked stones made from the soil of karbala ; they make sujud on it in their fake salah that is done only 3-times a day not 5.After knowing that all these mind bogging beliefs & acts of shias are true, you do not need a rocket scientist to tell you that SHIAS ARE NON- MUSLIMS & APOSTATES (left the fold of Islam).The dream of the unity between the shia(5 %)ers on kufr, shirk & Ahlu Sunnah 95%er on tawheed will never come true In sha Allah. Pls stop saying shi’a- islam or shia Muslim. That is a self contradiction. Simply SAY shi’a(rafidah/rejecters).

“Verily, those who divide their religion and break up into sects, you have no concern in them in the least. Their affair is only with Allah, Who then will tell them what they used to do.” (6:159).

The word “Shi’a” in Arabic means a “party”, “sect”, “supporters”. The term Shiite was first used in regards to a political issue over which the Muslims varied, 37 years after the death of the Prophet (sallAllaahu‘alayhiwasallam).It is clear that the term was unheard of during the time of the Prophet, & thus Shiites appeared after the death of the Prophet.

It started as a political opinion which favoured some views of Ali, the cousin of the Prophet, over some other companions, it however eventually became a sect purporting strange ideas foreign to Islam. This was due to the fact that this ideology was mainly espoused by people in areas far from the centres of Islamic learning; Persia, those who were either new to Islam, converted to Islam nominally, but remained upon their previous religions. Thus, the Shiites became fertile soil for the introduction of foreign ideas in beliefs from Judaism, Zoroastrianism & Islam. No wonder one of the most important shrines visited for worship of their so called saints by many Shiites is that of Abu Lu’lu’ah, a Zoroastrian who killed the  2nd Caliph; Umar (radiallahuanihu).This shrine is located in the city of Kashan, Iran. Muhammad Ali Mu’zi, an Iranian Shiite researcher in France, stated:

“The basic fundamentals of the Zoroastrian religion has entered into Shiism even in some minute issues. …And this relationship marked the brotherhood between Shiism & the ancient Magian (Majoos) Iran.”

Shiites believe in the veneration & calling on others besides God. For them, Homage is to be paid to great saints & martyrs, such as Ali, Hussein, Fatimah, their Imams, and they believe that they can answer their calls, help them as well as intervene for them with God, a belief that according to Islam is clear shirk.

“Is not He (God) Who responds to the distressed one, when he calls Him, and Who removes the evil.” (27:62).

They believe that these family members of the prophet & the so called 12 infallible imams administer the affairs of the universe, know the Unseen and shi’as place them in a position higher than the Prophets & angels. See details http://islamqa.info/en/20738 http://islamqa.info/en/45663 http://islamqa.info/en/38622


They believe thunder & lightening is caused by these so called “12 infallible Imams”.

“And among His Signs is that He shows you the lightning, by way of fear and hope, and He sends down water (rain) from the sky, and therewith revives the earth after its death. Verily, in that are indeed signs for a people who understand.”(30:24)

In authoritative Shiite texts, its states:

“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 Imams have knowledge of all the revealed books, regardless of the languages in which they were revealed” (Ibid, p.227)

“The Imams know when they will die, and they do not die except by their own choice” (Ibid, p.258)

“All of the earth belongs to the Imams.” (Ibid, p.407) “Say: ‘None in the heavens and the earth knows the unseen except Allah, nor can they perceive when they shall be resurrected.” (Q27:65)

All the previous Prophets e.g. Noah, Ibrahim, Musa, Jesus (Peace be upon them all) all invoked God Almighty by the names of these Imams at their times of need & trials. (Wasa’il As-Sheea, 4/1143).

“Verily, whosoever sets up partners in worship with Allah, then Allah has forbidden Paradise for him, and the Fire will be his abode.” (5:72)

Shiism differs from Islam in the first & most important pillar of Islam i.e the Shahaadah. This testimony is the most important aspect of Islam, & the whole religion is built upon it (unique & absolute monotheism).

The Prophet (sallAllaahu‘alayhiwasallam): “No one says ‘La ilaaha ill-Allah’ and dies firmly upon it, but he/she will enter Heaven (Paradise).” (Al-Bukhari).

The Shiites, however, have a different ‘testimony of faith’ different from that of the Qur’an. They not only negate its meanings, as earlier shown by associating others with God, but they have also added certain principles nowhere to be found in authentic texts. THEIR SHAHAADAH COMPRISES OF THE STATEMENT: “NONE DESERVES WORSHIP BUT GOD, AND THAT MUHAMMAD IS HIS SLAVE AND MESSENGER, AND ALI IS HIS BELOVED AND CHOSEN ONE, AND SUCCESSOR TO THE PROPHET.”

‘Aa’ishah (radiallahuaniah) :The Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam) went out one morning wearing a striped cloak of black camel hair. Al-Hasan ibn ‘Ali came and he enfolded him in the cloak, then al-Husayn came and he enfolded him in it, then Faatimah came and he enfolded her in it, then ‘Ali came and he enfolded him in it, then he said: “Allaah wishes only to remove Ar‑Rijs (evil deeds & sins) from you, O members of the family (of the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam), and to purify you with a thorough purification” [33:33]. (Muslim).

Amazingly, this hadith is commonly quoted by the shi’as (kufaar) as a proof to restrict definition of ahlul bayt (household of the prophet) to only these 4 people, further amazement is the fact that the same hadith was narrated by ‘Aa’ishah (radiallahuaniah); one of the beloved wives of the prophet, a member of his household & one of the mothers of the believers (Q33:6) who they curse, call a liar, a fornicator etc. How can they present as a proof of argument the narration of one they accuse of all these?

The verse [33:32,33] shows that in-addition to all others that may be included, the wives & daughters of the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam) are definitely included : “And stay in your houses, and do not display yourselves like that of the times of ignorance, And perform As‑Salaah, & give Zakaah & obey Allaah & His Messenger. Allaah wishes only to remove Ar‑Rijs (evil deeds & sins) from you, O members of the family (of the Prophet, and to purify you with a thorough purification”.

Allah included & regarded wives of previous prophets as part of their families: And the angels said to Saarah the wife of Ibraaheem (alehimsalam).“The Mercy of Allaah and His Blessings be on you, O the family of Ibraaheem]” [11:73]. “(All) except the family of Loot. Them all we are surely, going to save (from destruction). Except his wife…”.[15:59-60]. See also Q28:12 where ahlul bayt referred to mother of Musa.These indicate that the wives are normally part of the family.

There are several views among the scholars concerning the extent & scope of the definition of Ahl al-Bayt of Prophet Muhammad (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam) beyond those stated above. Some said his wives, his children, Banu Haashim, Banu ‘Abd al-Muttalib & their freed slaves. Some said, the pious among his ummah; & some said they are all of the ummah of Muhammad (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam).With regard to the family of al-Muttalib, the correct view is that they are among the Ahl al-Bayt. Jubayr ibn Mut’im (radiallahuanihu) said: “ ‘Uthmaan ibn ‘Affaan and I went to the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam) and said: ‘O Messenger of Allaah, you have given to Banu’l-Muttalib and not to us, but we and they are the same in status with regard to you.’ The Messenger (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam) said: ‘Banu’l-Muttalib & Banu Haashim are the same thing.’” (Bukhaari).

With regard to the freed slaves, it was narrated that Mihraan the freed slave of the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam) said: the Messenger (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam) said; “We are the family of Muhammad: the sadaqah is not permissible for us, and the freed slave of a people is one of them.” (Ahmad). Included among the Ahl al-Bayt are Banu Haashim ibn ‘Abd Manaaf, who are the family of ‘Ali, the family of ‘Abbaas, the family of Ja’far, the family of ‘Aqeel & the family of al-Haarith ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib. SO, THE FAMILY OF THE PROPHET (SALLALLAAHU ‘ALAYHIWASALLAM) ARE: HIS WIVES, HIS CHILDREN, BANU HAASHIM, BANU ‘ABD AL-MUTTALIB AND THEIR FREED SLAVES.

Zayd ibn Arqam (radiallahuanihu): “The Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam) stood up and addressed us one day at a well called Khum, between Makkah & Madeenah. He praised Allaah & exhorted and reminded us. Then he said: ‘O people, I am a human being; soon the messenger of my Lord [i.e., the Angel of death] will come to me and I will answer his call. I am leaving among you two important things: the first of which is the Book of Allaah, in which there is guidance and light, so adhere to it and follow it’ – and he urged us to adhere to the Book of Allaah, then he said: ‘And the people of my household (ahl bayti). I remind you of Allaah with regard to the people of my household, I remind you of Allaah with regard to the people of my household, I remind you of Allaah with regard to the people of my household.’”

Allaah has bestowed upon the Ahl al-Bayt of the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam) numerous virtues. Ahl al-Sunnah wa’l-Jamaa’ah are unanimously agreed that it is obligatory to love them & respect their rights BUT NEVER TO WORSHIP THEM.

The family of the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam) have rights which attention must be paid to. Allaah has allocated to them a share of the khums and fay’, and He has enjoined that blessings be sent upon them along with the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam), who said to us: “Say: ‘Allaahumma salli ‘ala Muhammadin wa ‘ala aali Muhammadin kamaa salayta ‘ala aali Ibraaheem, innaka Hameedun Majeed, wa baarik ‘ala Muhammadin wa ‘ala aali Muhammadin kamaa baarakta ‘ala aali Ibraaheem innaka Hameedun Majeed (O Allaah, send prayer upon Muhammad and upon the family of Muhammad, as You sent prayers upon the family of Ibraaheem; You are indeed Worthy of Praise, Full of Glory. And send blessings upon Muhammad and upon the family of Muhammad, as You sent blessings upon the family of Ibraaheem; You are indeed Worthy of Praise, Full of Glory)’”.

By the same token, narrated by Abu Eeesa : (saheeh hasan Tirmidhi). Al-’Irbaad ibn Saariyah,; “the Prophet led us in prayer one day, then he turned to us & exhorted us strongly . . . (he said), ‘Pay attention to my sunnah (way) & the way of the Rightly-guided Khaleefahs  after me, adhere to it & hold fast to it.’” (Abi Dawud). The companions of the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam) paid attention to this commandments; foremost among them were Abu Bakr al-Siddeeq & ‘Umar ibn al-Khattaab (radiallahuanihumah). Abu Bakr said to ‘Ali (radiallahuanihumah): “By the One in Whose hand is my soul, kinship with the Messenger of Allaah is dearer to me than kinship with my own people.”(Bukhari).Abu Bakr (radiallahuanihu) said: “Pay attention to the rights of the household of Muhammad.” Al-Haafiz Ibn Hajar said: The words “Pay attention to the rights of the household of Muhammad” are addressed to the people, enjoining them to fulfil the rights of Ahl al-Bayt. ‘Umar ibn al-Khattaab used to put them ahead of himself or any other people with regard to allocating shares from bayt al-maal. The love & respect for the household of the prophet must never lead to worshipping them directly or indirectly through giving them divine attributes, asking them for intercession or for help, worshipping at their supposed graves etc.

The kufaar (Shias/Raafidis) worship them & claim that intercession is only for the family of the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam). It is also stated in their books of kufr that Ahl al-Bayt are the ones who will admit people to Paradise & to Hell! Anas (radiallahuanihu): a man said: “O Messenger of Allaah, where is my father?” He said: “In Hell.” When he turned away he called him back & said: “My father & your father are in Hell.”

Al-Nawawi said: This shows that whoever dies in a state of kufr will be in Hell. And being related to one who is close to Allaah will not avail him anything.

There is no intercession specifically for the family of the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam), rather the Prophets, the martyrs, the scholars, the righteous and the angels will also join in that whether they are among Ahl al-Bayt or are from  previous prophets & among the ordinary people. A man’s righteous deeds may also intercede for him, but the Prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam) will have the greatest share of intercession.

Is it permissible to give zakaah to Ahl al-Bayt? http://islamqa.info/en/21981

Will Ahl al-Bayt intercede for the people on the Day of Resurrection? http://islamqa.info/en/121948

YES, it is true that the parents of the prophet (sallAllaahu ‘alayhiwasallam) are in hell fire?. http://islamqa.info/en/47170

Must Watch:

Who are the Ahlul bayt ?
