WHO ARE THE SHIAH?
Shi’ism’s fundamental basis – the cornerstone of its religion – is its principle of reviling, abusing and rejecting
the Sahaabah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). The murderers of Hadhrat Uthmaan (radhiyallahu
anhu) realised that their politically and nafsaani inspired movement can never be successful as long as the
authority of Rasulullah’s (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) Sahaabah is retained. They had, therefore, no alternative
other than raising the structure of Shi’ism on the basis of opinion which necessitated the denial of the
authority of the Companions of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). They thus propagated the doctrine of
the rejection of the Sahaabah with brutal blasphemy, which they shamelessly attributed to Rasulullah
(sallallahu alayhi wasallam). Their religion is based on the vilification of those whom Rasulullah (sallallahu
alayhi wasallam) loved so dearly and whose authority is established, not on the basis of opinion and love, but
on the basis of Divine Directive. Without the Sahaabah there can be no Islam, no Qur’aan, no Sunnah, no
Shariah, no Imaan. The Deen of Allah Ta’ala came to us and to all and will continue to travel to the end of time
by means of Naql (authoritative and authentic narration), the first link in the chain of narration and
transmission joining us with Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) being the noble Sahaabah.
But, Shi’ism has broken that very first and vital link with Nabi-e- Kareem(sallallahu alayhi wasallam). They thus
have no Shar’i authority and no Shar’i proof for their beliefs of the nafs. The way they have tried to overcome
this hurdle is by their doctrine of fabricating Ahaadith to substantiate their claims.
Nifaaq or hypocrisy is a principle of the Shi’i religion. They technically term such hypocrisy as Taqiyah which
means the permissibility to conceal one’s true beliefs for the sake of any expediency.
Thus they attribute even such hypocrisy to Hadhrat Ali (radhiyallahu anhu). It is the Shi’i belief that although
Hadhrat Ali (radhiyallahu anhu) believed that Hadhrat Abu Bakr and Hadhrat Umar (radhiyallahu anhuma)
usurped the Khilaafat and deliberately betrayed Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) he nevertheless
pledged loyalty to these senior Sahaabah on account of some political expediency. This blatant baatil and
blasphemy attributed to Hadhrat Ali (radhiyallahu anhu) exhibit the crookedness of Shi’i mentality.
The Shiahs who have gone out of their way to belittle the Sahaabah and to drop them from the pedestal of
authority which the Shariah assigns to them can never be the lovers of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam)
nor can Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) have love for such miscreants of belief. About hatred for his
Sahaabah, Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:”Those who hate the Sahaabah, hate them because [in
reality] they hate me.”
It is a Shi’i contention that the great Sahaabah, especially Hadhrat Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthmaan,
etc.(radhiyallahu anhum) did not understand the teachings of Nabi-e-Kareem (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).
They further shamelessly and blasphemously assert that these illustrious Khulafa-e-Raashideen are usurpers,
frauds, fabricators of Ahaadith and wholly incompetent in Deeni matters. Indeed, the la’nat of Allah Ta’ala
must be on such slanderers as the Shi’i clergy who make such wicked assertions. Inspite of their slander being
shocking and despicable in the extreme, it is not surprising since they are the worst fabricators and frauds
peddling their nafsaani opinions in the name of Islam and attributing it to Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi
wasallam). They have accused the Sahaabah of being involved in conspiracies to eliminate Islam and supplant
it with the Arab tribal systems of the time of jaahiliyyah. The blasphemous drivel which clutters their books
and preachings exhibits their wickedness and detestation for the Islam of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi
