Bismillah irrahman irrahim,
I was going through a shiite forum and i went through a thread about debate on imamah and till today i couldnt figure out what was the right way imamate or caliphate through shura. I was so confused about which faith to adopt sunni or shia? But Alhamdulillah i am now clear and it has driven all my confusion to the bin. This brother argued very cleverly and busted the opponent by these lines:
“Lets assume for the sake of arguments that imamat of the 12 was the chosen way. Ok Ali becomes the khalifa, than hassan, than hussain & till ur 12th imam mahdi. I am sure we all agree these imams were MORTAL human beings. Suppose each of these imams got khilafat without any resistance & there was no opposition by anyone & this is what u shias want isnt it? U criticize the sahaba for depriving the Ahly bayt from their right to rule the ummah? Fine… 20 years of khilafat by each of ur “divinely appointed” imam gives a total of 240 years. What after that? For the sake of argument we accept that all ur stories & tales of the tragedies & sad events surrounding the Ahly Bayt from the day they were entitled to rule till the day ur last imam left the ummah are true, but all these self made theories fail miserably on the other side when we apply them to reality. U guys have NO authentic narrations to clearly indicate what would been the scenario if things went in the favor of Ahly Bait & no one turned against Ali & his family”
He further continues:
“shia islam fails when it comes to the real application of its underlying principles. That proves it NOT the legitimate school of thought. This is why i dont accept it as a right path. It is full of flaws & miscalculations.
Compare this system with that of sunnis, a shura elects a caliph who is capable & worth of being one. He can be anyone, from any tribe, any race… thats more practical & applicable too. Its not limited to a number of people. It can be continued till qiyamah. So thats the right way.”
I am fully confident on my faith from now on. Shiism is false religion and doesnt make sense at all.

Major Shia website blatantly lie upon Imam Fakhruddin ar-Razi and what he said in his Quranic commentary Tafsir al-Kabir regarding the verse 33 of Surah Ahzab (or “Ayat Tathir” or “verse of Purification”).
Here a screenshot I made:
Here the relevant part of what Fakhr Al-Din actually said:
ثم قال تعالى : ( إنما يريد الله ليذهب عنكم الرجس أهل البيت ويطهركم تطهيرا ) .
ثم إن الله تعالى ترك خطاب المؤنثات وخاطب بخطاب المذكرين بقوله : ( ليذهب عنكم الرجس ) ليدخل فيه نساء أهل بيته ورجالهم ، واختلفت الأقوال في أهل البيت . والأولى أن يقال : هم أولاده وأزواجه والحسن والحسين منهم وعلي منهم لأنه كان من أهل بيته بسبب معاشرته ببنت النبي عليه السلام ..
Then He (Allah) says:
[And abide in your houses and do not display yourselves as [was] the display of the former times of ignorance. And establish prayer and give zakah and obey Allah and His Messenger.] Allah intends only to remove from you the impurity [of sin], O people of the [Prophet’s] household, and to purify you with [extensive] purification.
[…]thereon, Allah the Most High stopped addressing the wives only and INCLUDED the males of the Ahl Al-Bayt (‘ANKUM AR-RIJS) so that the WOMEN and men of the Ahl Al-Bayt were both included and there have been differences of opinion about who are meant with Ahl Al-Bayt. The most correct statement is:
They (his Ahl Al-Bayt) are his children and WIVES, and Al-Hassan and Al-Hussein are from them (his children) and Ali is from them, because he (Ali) is from his Ahl Al-Bayt due to him having lived (in the house) of the Prophet […]
When will Shia websites stop lying and misquoting Sunni scholars?

Shia scholar Azhar Nasser plagiarises Nouman Ali Khan’s speech word for word. He has also been caught stealing other people’s tweets and share them as his own. He first got the attention of the Sunni Defense team when he insulted a prominent companion of the Prophet (saw).
Interesting Twitter discussion between the Sunni researcher Farid @Farid_BHR and the famous Shia preacher Sayed Mahdi Modarresi, the founder of the biggest Shia TV Channel in English language (Ahlulbayt TV).
Topic of the discussion: The alleged attack on the house of Sayyida Fatima.
Note: The Shia preacher refers to Prophet’s (ﷺ) closest friends Abubakr Siddiq and Omar as “idols” as well as saying they have special place in hell.

It all started from here:
Salaam alaykum wa rahmatullah,
At the outset, I would like to thank Allah (swt) without Whom knowledge would not have reached us and after sending peace and blessings upon the Prophet (saw), Ahlul Bayt (ra) and Sahaba (ra), I would like to thank the brothers on this forum for equipping me with tools to defend authentic Islam.
After a long time, I decided to go to dhikr today (as some of you might recall, I attend Naqshbandi dhikr). Dhikr takes place every Saturday in Maryland (an adjacent state to the one I live in) and on the way, I pass by a Shia mosque. Traditionally, I take the exit, visit the Shia mosque, offer Asr prayers and then continue down the highway to the zawiyah. It was no different today except it was snowing and I noticed some commotion at the Shia mosque which, usually on Saturday afternoons, is either quiet or closed.
Post-Asr, I went to the zawiyah and found out that dhikr had been canceled, thanks to snow. The email was sent literally 30 minutes before dhikr so I was a bit upset. In order to pray maghrib, I thought I’d drive back to the Shia mosque and pray there (since it was on my way back and due to its proximity, it would afford me to offer maghrib before it expired).
When I got to the Shia mosque, Continue reading
1. There was a Meccan man who was born 6 years after Prophet Muhamad ﷺ. He lived a respectful & honorable life, and when Muhammad ﷺ began to preach Islam in Mecca, he was one of the first individuals from Quraish to accept Islam, due to the efforts of the earliest Meccan Muslims
2. He accepted Islam in his 30s in Mecca, when Muslims were a persecuted minority with no socio-political affluence. He eventually reached such a respected status with the Prophet ﷺ and the Muslims that he was given the honor of marrying a daughter of the Prophet ﷺ, Himself.
3. When the persecution of Muslims got out of hand, he was among the first to migrate to Abyssinia (along with his wife, the Prophet’s daughter) in hope of a safer and more tolerant setting, to freely practice Islam.
