Shia ar-raafidah


Let us look at the beginnings of this sect which arose in the early generations.

The word Raafidah means “rejecter”, the Rawaafidh have obtained their name by their rejection of Zayd ibn ‘Alee ibn al-Hussayn ibn Alee ibn Abee Taalib, the great grandson of ‘Alee(ra).

& Our beloved prophet[pbuh] predicted this generation of rafidi shia. & we have Good hadith on that:

The Hadith was weak but it seems Imam al-Shawkani has placed it in his book with several weak Isnads and two Isnads which he thinks are good, surprisingly narrated by Fatima bint Rassul Allah PBUH:

نظر النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم إلى علي فقال هذا في الجنة وإن من شيعته قوماً يلغون الإسلام يرفضونه لهم نبز يسمون الرافضة من لقيهم فليقتلهم فإنهم مشركون
الراوي: فاطمة بنت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم المحدث: الشوكاني – المصدر: در السحابة – الصفحة أو الرقم: 36
خلاصة حكم المحدث: إسناده رجاله ثقات

Fatima bint Rassul Allah PBUT said: The Prophet PBUH looked at Ali and said: “He {Ali[ra]} is in paradise and his Shia are folks who will cancel Islam and reject it, they will be known as the rejectors(Rafidha), he who sees them must fight them for they are polytheists(Moushrikoun).”

source: Imam al Shawkani said the narrators are trustworthy in Durr al Sahabah 36, He also narrated it from Ibn Abbas (ra) and said Isnad Hasan.

Imaam adh-Dhahabee said in his Siyaar A’laam an-Nubalaa (5/390):

قال عيسى بن يونس جاءت الرافضة زيدا فقالوا تبرأ من أبي بكر وعمر حتى ننصرك قال بل أتولاهما قالوا إذا نرفضك فمن ثم قيل لهم الرافضة
‘Eesaa bin Yoonus said: The Raafidah came to Zayd and said to him, “Free yourself from Abee Bakr and ‘Umar so that we can aid you.
He replied, “Rather I will give allegiance to them (i.e. Aboo Bakr and ‘Umar).” They said, “Then we reject you.” So then it was said to them, “ar-Raafidah” (the rejecters).”

Shaykh al-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah mentioned in his Majmoo’ al-Fataawa (4/435):

قيل للإمام أحمد : من الرافضي ؟ قال : الذي يسب أبا بكر وعمر . وﺑﻬذا سميت الرافضة، فإﻧﻬم رفضوا زيد بن علي لما تولى الخليفتين أبا بكر وعمر، لبغضهم لهما، فالمبغض لهما هو الرافضي، وقيل : إنما سموا رافضة لرفضهم أبا بكر وعمر
“It was said to Imaam Ahmad: “Who is the Raafidhee?” He said: “Those who insult Abaa Bakr and ‘Umar.And by this they were named the Raafidah, for they rejected Zayd bin ‘Alee when he gave allegiance to the two Khaleefah’s Abaa Bakr and ‘Umar, (so they rejected him) because of their hatred for them. And the one who hates them (i.e. Aboo Bakr and ‘Umar) is a Raafidhee.” And they were named as the Raafidhah because of their rejection of Abaa Bakr and ‘Umar.”

He then said:

وأصل الرفض من المنافقين الزنادقة، فإنه ابتدعه ابن سبأ الزنديق
“And the foundation of rejection is from the hypocrites and the heretics, for they followed the innovation of the heretic Ibn Saba’. “

He also said in volume 28 on page 483:

وقد ذكر أهل العلم أن مبدأ الرفض إنما كان من الزنديق عبد الله بن سبأ؛ فإنه أظهر الإسلام وأبطن اليهودية، وطلب أن يفسد الإسلام، كما فعل بولص النصرانى، الذى كان يهوديا فى إفساد دين النصارى
And the people of knowledge have mentioned that the beginning of the Rafdh (rejection) is from the Heretic (Zindeeq) ‘Abdullaah bin Saba‘; for he manifested Islaam and while he hid his Judaism and he sought to cause corruption in Islaam just like Paul the Christian, who was a Jew who caused corruption in the religion of the Christians.”

So the foundation of the Raafidhee belief is found in this man, ‘Abdullaah bin Saba’.

Ibn Hajar al-‘Asqalaanee said in his Leesaanul Meezaan:

عبد الله بن سبا من غلاة الزنادقة ضال مضل
“Abdullaah bin Saba’ from the extremists of the heretics, deviated and deviates others.”

Shia also have sahih hadiths about ibn saba as discussed here.

Ibn Abil ‘Izz al-Hanafee mentioned in his Sharh ‘Aqeedatut Tahaawiyyah on page 490:

أصل الرفض إنما أحدثه منافق زنديق ، قصده إبطال دين الإسلام ، والقدح في الرسول صلى الله عليه وسلم ، كما ذكر ذلك العلماء . فإن عبدالله بن سبأ لما أظهر الإسلام ، أراد أن يفسد دين الإسلام بمكره وخبثه ، كما فعل بولس بدين النصرانية ، فأظهر التنسك ، ثم أظهر الأمر بالمعروف والنهي عن المنكر ، حتى سعى في فتنة عثمان وقتله ، ثم لما قدم علي الكوفة أظهر الغلو في علي والنصر له ، ليتمكن بذلك من أغراضه ، وبلغ ذلك عليًا ، فطلب قتله ، فهرب منه إلى قرقيس وخبره معروف في التاريخ
“The foundations of Rafdh (rejection) came to begin from a heretic and hypocrite who intended to bring falsehood into the religion of Islaam and to bring insult to the Messenger ( صلى لله عليه وسلم ) as the scholars have mentioned. For indeed, Abdullaah bin Saba’ when he manifested Islaam, he sought to cause corruption in the religion of Islaam by plotting and vileness just as what Paul did with the Christian religion. First he manifested piety and then manifested enjoining the good and forbidding the evil, until he was involved in the Fitnah of ‘Uthmaan and his killing. Then when he entered Koofah he manifested extremism for ‘Alee and supporting him to gain from it necessities and this was made clear to ‘Alee so he sought his killing and fought him to Qarqees and the narrations of that are known in History.”

Thus from this man (Abdullaah bin Saba’) whom Ahlus Sunnah has criticized; stemmed this group known as the Rawaafidh Shee’ah.

Ibn Hajar al-Haythamee mentioned in his Majma’ az-Zawaa’id (10/22) the narration of Ibn ‘Abbaas which was reported by at Tabaraanee with a Hasan chain of narration that the Messenger of Allaah ( صلى لله عليه وسلم ) said:

يا علي سيكون في أمتي قوم ينتحلون حب أهل البيت، لهم نبز يسمون الرافضة، قاتلوهم فإﻧﻬم مشركون
O ‘Alee, there will be in my Ummah a group of people who will go beyond bounds in love of my family, they will have an insulting name, they will be known as the Raafidah. Fight them, for they are polytheists.

Ibn Hajar al-Haythamee also metioned in his Majma’ az-Zawaa’id (2/10) with a good chain of narration that ‘Aasim bin Bahdalah said:

قلت للحسن بن علي : الشيعة يزعمون أن عليًا يرجع ؟ قال : كذب أولئك الكذابون، لو علمنا ذلك ما تزوج نساؤه، ولا قسمنا ميراثه
“I said to ‘al-Hasan bin ‘Alee: “The Shee’ah claim that ‘Alee will return.” He said: “Those liars have lied. For if we had known that, his women would not have married and we would not have divided his inheritance.”

روى ابن بطة في الإبانة الكبرى باب ذكر افتراق الأمم في دينهم، و على كم تفترق الأمة من حديث أبو علي بن إسماعيل بن العباس الوراق ، قال حدثنا الحسن بن محمد بن الصباح الزعفراني ، قال حدثنا شبابة ، قال حدثنا سوادة بن سلمة أن عبد الله بن قيس رضي الله عنه قال اجتمع عند علي رضي الله عنه جاثليتو النصارى و رأس الجالوت كبير علماء اليهود فقال الرأس: تجادلون على كم افترقت اليهود؟ قال: على إحدى و سبعين فرق فقال علي رضي الله عنه: لتفترقن هذه الأمة على مثل ذلك، و أضلها فرقة و شرها: الداعية إلينا!! ( أهل البيت ) آية ذلك أﻧﻬم يشتمون أبا بكر و عمر رضي الله عنهم

“Ibn Battah reported in his al-Ibaanah al Kubraa, in the chapter: Mentioning the sections of the Nations in their religion and upon how many sects will the Ummah split into, from the Hadeeth of Abee ‘Alee bin Ismaa’eel bin al-Abbaas al-Warraaq who said: al-Hassan bin Muhammad bin as-Sabaah az-Za’faraanee narrated to me that Shabbaabah said, that Sawaadah bin Salamah said that ‘Abdullaah bin Qaysرضي لله عن) ) said:
“A group of Christians came to ‘Alee ( رضي لله عنه ) and at the head of them was a major scholar of the Jews. So the leader said: “You debate about how many groups the Jews split into?” He said: “Into seventy one sects”.
And ‘Alee ( رضي لله عنه ) said: “And this Ummah will split into similar to that, and the most deviated and evil sect of them: the ones who call to us (Ahlul Bayt), and a sign of them is that they insult Aboo Bakr and ‘Umar (رضي لله عنھما)

و أبو علي بن العباس الوراق روى عنه الدارقطني و وثقه و قال الذهبي عنه: المحدث الإمام الحجة، و ذكره يوسف بن عمر القواس في جملة شيوخه الثقات

THE CHAIN FOR THIS HADITH: “And as for Aboo ‘Alee bin al-‘Abbaas al-Warraaq, then ad-Daaruqutnee reported from him and considered him reliable. And adh-Dhahabee said about him: ((The Scholars of Hadeeth, the Imaam, the Proof)) and Yoosuf bin ‘Amr al-Qawwaas mentioned him from the reliable scholars.

Look to Taareekh Baghdaad (6/300) of al-Khateeb al Baghdaadee and al-Muntadhim(6/278) of Ibnul Jawzee and Siyaar A’laam an-Nubalaa (15/74) of adh-Dhahabee. And al-Hassan bin Muhammad bin as-Sabaah az-Za’faraanee is Reliable. See Tahdheeb at -Tahdheeb (2/318) and at-Taqreeb (1/170) of Ibn Hajar al ‘Asqalaanee

و روى ابو القاسم البغوي عن علي رضي الله عنه قال: يخرج في أخر الزمان قوم لهم نبز (أي لقب ) يقال لهم الرافضة يعرفون به، و ينتحلون شيعتنا و ليسوا من شيعتنا، و آية ذلك أﻧﻬم يشتمون أبا بكر و عمر أينما أدركتموهم فاقتلوهم فأﻧﻬم مشركون

“And Abul Qaasim al-Baghawee reported from ‘Alee ( رضي لله عنه ) that he said: A group will arise in the last times, they will have a nickname (an insulting name), they will be known as the “Raafidhah” (rejecters) and they will be known by it. They will say that they are our “shee’ah” (our group) but they are not from our group. And the signs of that is that they will insult Abaa Bakr and ‘Umar, where ever you find them, then kill them for they are mushrikoon (polytheists).”

و بلغ علي أبن أبي طالب أن عبد الله بن السوداء يبغض أبا بكر وعمر فهم بقتله فهاج الناس و قالو له: أتقتل رج ً لا يدعوا إلى حبكم أهل البيت؟ فقال: لا يساكنني في دار أبدآ. ثم أمر بنفيه إلى المدائن عاصمة الفرس

“And ‘Alee bin Abee Taalib clarified that ‘Abdullaah bin as-Sawdaa’ hated Abaa Bakr and ‘Umar, so he gave importance to his killing. So the people became roused and said to him: “Do you kill a man who calls to loving Ahlul Bayt?
He said: “Do not reside with me in my residence ever” Then he ordered with his banishment to Madaa’in, the capital of Persia.”

و روى الحكم بن حجل قال: سمعت علي يقول: لا يفضلني أحد على أبو بكر و عمر رضي الله عنهما إلا جلدته حد المفتر

“And al-Hakm bin Hajal said: I heard ‘Alee saying, “Nobody honors me over Aboo Bakr and ‘Umar ( رضي لله عنھما ) except punish him with the punishment of the lashing of a liar.

وقال محمد بن سعيد الأصبهاني : ( سمعت شريكًا يقول : احمل العلم عن كل من ( لقيت إلا الرافضة ، فإﻧﻬم يضعون الحديث ويتخذونه دينًا

“And Muhammad bin Sa’eed al-Asbahaanee said: “I heard Shareek (Bin Abdillaah, Qaadhee of Koofaa) saying: “Take knowledge from whoever you meet except the Raafidhah, for they fabricate hadeeth and take it as religion.

وقال أبو زرعة الرازي : إذا رأيت الرجل ينقص أحدًا من أصحاب رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فاعلم أنه زنديق

And Aboo Zur’ah ar-Raazee said: “If you find a man insulting any one of the Companions of the Messenger of Allaah ( صلى لله عليه وسلم) then know that he is a Heretic (Zindeeq).

Allaah says in Surah Fath about sahaba(ra):

مُّحَمَّدٌ رَّسُولُ اللَّهِ وَالَّذِينَ مَعَهُ أَشِدَّآءُ عَلَى الْكُفَّارِ رُحَمَآءُ بَيْنَهُمْ تَرَاهُمْ رُكَّعاً سُجَّداً يَبْتَغُونَ فَضْلاً مِّنَ اللَّهِ وَرِضْوَاناً سِيمَـهُمْ فِى وُجُوهِهِمْ مِّنْ أَثَرِ السُّجُودِ ذَلِكَ مَثَلُهُمْ فِى التَّوْرَاةِ وَمَثَلُهُمْ فِى الإِنجِيلِ كَزَرْعٍ أَخْرَجَ شَطْأَهُ فَآزَرَهُ فَاسْتَغْلَظَ فَاسْتَوَى عَلَى سُوقِهِ يُعْجِبُ الزُّرَّاعَ لِيَغِيظَ بِهِمُ الْكُفَّارَ وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ وَعَمِلُواْ الصَّـلِحَـتِ مِنْهُم مَّغْفِرَةً وَأَجْراً عَظِيماً

“Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, 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 Allah 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 (Torah). But their description in the Injeel (Gospel) 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 (i.e. all those who follow Islamic Monotheism, the religion of Prophet Muhammad till the Day of Resurrection) and do righteous good deeds, forgiveness and a mighty reward (i.e. Paradise).” [Quran: Al-Fath: 29]

Ibn Katheer said in his Tafseer (4/219):

ومن هذه الآية انتزع الإمام مالك رحمة الله عليه في رواية عنه بتكفير الروافض الذين يبغضون الصحابة رضي الله عنهم قال : لأﻧﻬم يغيظوﻧﻬم ومن غاظ الصحابة رضي الله عنهم فهو كافر لهذه الآية ووافقه طائفة من العلماء رضي الله عنهم على ذلك
And in this verse Imaam Maalik ( رحمه لله ) used as evidence for the Takfeer of the Rawaafidh, those who are enraged with the Sahaabah ( رضي لله عنھم ). He said: “That is because they become enraged with them and whoever is enraged with the Sahaabah رضي لله عنھم then he is a Kaafir (disbeliever) due to this verse” and a group of the Ulemaa (scholars), may Allaah be pleased with them (the Sahaabah رضي لله عنھم ), agreed with him on that.”

Imaam al-Qurtubee said in his Tafseer (16/297):

لقد أحسن مالك في مقالته وأصاب في تأويله فمن نقص واحدًا منهم أو طعن عليه في روايته فقد رد على الله رب العالمين وأبطل شرائع المسلمين
“Maalik has done good in his statement and is correct in his interpretation, for anyone who lowers one of them or insults them in his narration them he has gone against Allaah, the Lord of All the Worlds, and falsified the legislation of the Muslims.

And it is mentioned in As-Saarim al-Maslool of Shaykhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah:

و قال مالك رضي الله عنه، إنما هؤلاء أقوام أرادو القدح في النبي عليه الصلاة والسلام، فلم يمكنهم ذلك، فقدحوا في الصحابة حتى يقال؛ رجل سوء، ولو كان رجلا صالحًا لكان أصحابه صالحين
“And Maalik, may Allaah be pleased with him, said: “This group of people wanted to revile the Prophet عليه الصلاة والسلام but it was not possible for them, so they reviled the Companions until it was said about them: And evil man, even if he was a righteous man, however his companions are righteous.

And Shaykhul Islaam ibn Taymiyyah also said:

من شتم النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ُقتل، ومن سب أصحابه أدب
“Whoever insults the Prophet صلى لله عليه وسلم should be killed, and whoever insults his Companions should be punished.

And ‘Abdul-Maalik bin Habeeb said:

من غلا من الشيعة في بغض عثمان والبراءة منه ُأدب أدبا شديدا، ومن زاد إلى بغض أبي بكر وعمر فالعقوبة عليه أشد، ويكرر ضربه، ويطال سجنه، حتى يموت
“Whoever goes to extremes from the Shee’ah in hating ‘Uthmaan and freeing himself from him then he should be punished with a severe punishment, and if he increases to hating Abee Bakr and ‘Umar then his punishment is harsher, and he should be beaten and his imprisonment increased until he dies.

And al-Qaadhee ‘Iyyaadh mentioned in his al-Madaarik:

دخل هارون الرشيد المسجد، فركع ثم أتى قبر النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ثم أتى مجلس مالك فقال؛ السلام عليك ورحمة الله وبركاته، فقال مالك وعليك السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته، ثم قال لمالك هل لمن سب أصحاب النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم في الفيء حق ؟، قال؛ لا ولا كرامة، قال؛ من أين قلت ذلك، قال؛ قال الله؛ (ليغيظ ﺑﻬم الكفار) ، فمن عاﺑﻬم فهو كافر، ولا حق للكافر في الفيء، وأحتج مرة أخرى، بقوله تعالى؛ (للفقراء المهاجرين) ، قال؛ فهم أصحاب رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم الذين هاجروا معه، وأنصاره الذين جاؤوا من بعده يقولون؛ (ربنا اغفر لنا ولإخواننا الذين سبقونا بالإيمان ولا تجعل في قلوبنا غلا للذين أمنوا ربنا أنك رؤوف رحيم)، فما عدا هؤلاء فلا حق لهم فيه
“Haaroon ar-Rasheed had entered the Masjid and he sat down then he went to the grave of the Prophet صلى لله عليه وسلم and then he went to the sitting of Maalik and said: As-Salaamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatu. And Maalik said: Wa alaikum as Salaam wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatu. Then he said to Maalik: “Is there any right for gain for the one who insults the companions of the Prophet “?صلى لله عليه وسلم
He (Maalik ) said: “No, and no honor”. He said: “And from where do you say that?”
He said: “Allaah says: ‘So that the disbelievers may become enraged with them’ so whoever thinks bad of them then he is a Kaafir (disbeliever) and there is no right for the disbeliever in the gains.” And he used again as a proof: “For the Fuqaraa and the Muhaajiroon…”, he said: “For they are the Companions of the Messenger of Allaah صلى لله عليه وسلم , those who migrated with him, and aided him and those who come after them say: ‘O our Lord forgive us and those who preceded us in Faith and do not make in our hearts spite for those who believe, O our Lord verily you are the Most Merciful’ so whoever insults one of them then there is no right for them in it.”

Ibn Hazm reported,

أن هشام بن عمار سمع الإمام مالك يفتي بجلد من يسب أبو بكر و بقتل من يسب أم المؤمنين عائشة فسئله عن سبب قتل ساب عائشة رضي الله عنها فقال لأن الله ﻧﻬانا عن ذلك ﻧﻬيًا شديدًا في سورة النور اللآية 17 و حذرنا ألا نفعل ذلك أبدأ
That Hishaam bin ‘Ammaar heard Imaam Maalik issuing a ruling of punishment of lashing for the one who insults Aboo Bakr and the punishment of killing for the one who insults the Mother of the Believers, Aa’ishah. So he was asked about the reason of the killing of the one whom insults ‘Aa’ishah رضي لله عنھا so he said: “Because Allaah prohibited that with a strong prohibition in Surah an-Noor, verse 17 and warned us never to do that.”

Imaam Aboo Haneefah said when the Shee’ah was mentioned to him:

من شك في كفر هؤلاء، فهو كافر مثلهم
Whoever doubts in their disbelief then he is a disbeliever like them.

Imaam Aboo Bakr al-Khallaal mentioned in his Sunnah (2/557) from Abee Bakr al-Maaroodhee who reported that Maalik bin Anas said:

الذي يشتم أصحاب النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ليس لهم سهم أو قال نصيب في الإسلام

The one who reviles the Companions of the Prophet ( صلى لله عليه وسلم ) does not have any share or portion in Islaam.

Al-Khallaal also reported (2/557 – 558) that Imaam Ahmad said:

من شتم أخاف عليه الكفر مثل الروافض
The one who reviles the Companions, I fear for him disbelieve like that of the Rawaafidh.

Imaam as-Sam’aanee said in his Al-Insaab 6/341,

واجتمعت الأمة على تكفير الإمامية لأﻧﻬم يعتقدون تضليل الصحابة وينكرون إجماعهم وينسبوﻧﻬم إلى ما لا يليق ﺑﻬم
And the Ummah has consensus on the takfeer of the Imaamiyyah (raafidah), because they believe that the Sahaabah deviated and they denounce their consensus and ascribe to them that which is not affirmed of them.”

Imaam al-Bukhaaree said in his Khalq Af’aal al-‘Ibaad 125,

ما أبالي صليت خلف الجهمي والرافضي ، أم صليت خلف اليهود والنصارى ولا يسلم عليهم ولا يعادون ولا يناكحون ولا يشهدون ولا تؤكل ذبائحهم
“I do not give any consideration to prayer behind the Jahmee and the Raafidhee, nor praying behind a Jew or Christian.
Do not greet them (i.e. the Jahmee and the Raafidhee), do not visit them, do not marry them, do not accept their testimony, nor eat their sacrificed.”

Al-Bukhaaree reported in his Khalq Af’aal al-‘Ibaad (125) from ibn Mahdee that he said,

هما ملتان الجهمية والرافضية
“They are two separate religions, the Jahmiyyah and the Raafidhiyyah.”

Imaam al-Laalikaa’ee reported in his Usool al-I’tiqaad Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaa’ah:

سمعت عبد الرحمن بن مهدي وسألته عن الصلاة خلف اصحاب الأهواء قال نعم لا يصلي خلف هؤلاء الصنفين الجهمية والروافض فإن الجهمية كفار بكتاب الله
“I heard from ‘Abdur-Rahmaan bin Mahdee and asked him about the Salaah behind the people of desire and he said:
Yes, do not pray behind those two groups, the Jahmiyyah and the Rawaafidh, for the Jahmiyyah are disbelievers in the Book of Allaah.”

Ibn Battah reported in his al-Ibaanah (Number 200) that al-Marwazee said that he asked Aboo ‘Abdillaah Ahmad bin Hanbal about the one who reviles Aboo Bakr and ‘Umar and ‘Uthmaan and ‘Aa’ishah ( رضي لله عنھم ) and he said:

مَا َأرَاهُ عََلى َاْلِإسَْلاِم
I do not see him upon Islaam.

Imaam Ibn Hazm al-Andalusee said in his Fisal fee Milal wan Nihal (2/213):

وأما قولهم ( يعني النصارى ) في دعوى الروافض تبديل القرآن فإن الروافض ليسوا من المسلمين ، إنما هي فرقة حدث أولها بعد موت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم بخمس وعشرين سنة … وهي طائفة تجري مجرى اليهود والنصارى في الكذب والكفر
“And as for their statement (meaning the Christians) in the case of the Rawaafidh and their changing of the Qur’aan, then the Rawaafidh are not from the Muslims. Indeed it is a sect which the first of them arose after the death of the Messenger of Allaahصلى لله عليه وسلم) ) by 25 years… and it is a group that went the way of the Jews and the Christians in lying and disbelief.”

Imaam ash-Shaafi’ee and other Ulemaa stated that we should not narrate from the Raafidhah Shee’ah as they are amongst the liars.

Ibn Taymiyyah reported in his Minhaaj as-Sunnah (1/59 -62):

وقال مؤمل بن إهاب سمعت يزيد بن هارون يقول يكتب عن كل صاحب بدعة إذا لم يكن داعية إلا الرافضة فإﻧﻬم يكذبون
Mu’mal Ibn Ihaab said: I heard Yazeed Bin Haaroon (d. 206H) saying,
The narrations of every person of innovation can be written as long as he is not a caller to it, except the Raafidah, since they are liars.

Ibn Taymiyyah recorded in his Minhaaj as-Sunnah (1/69):

قال أبو حاتم الرازي سمعت يونس بن عبد الأعلى يقول قال أشهب بن عبد العزيز سئل مالك عن الرافضة فقال لا تكلمهم ولا ترو عنهم فإﻧﻬم يكذبون وقال أبو حاتم حدثنا حرملة قال سمعت الشافعي يقول لم أر أحدا أشهد بالزور من الرافضة
“Aboo Haatim ar-Raazee (d.277H) said,
“I heard Yoonus bin ‘Abd al-A’laa saying: Ashhaab bin ‘Abdul’Azeez asked Maalik (d.179H) about the Raafidah, so he said, “Do not speak to them and do not narrate from them, since they lie. And Aboo Haatim said, Harmalah related to us saying: I heard ash-Shaafi’ee (d.204H) saying, “I have not seen anyone testifying for more evil than the Raafidah.

Imaam Ibn Battah mentioned in his al-Ibaanah (Number 193) that Aboo Bakr bin ‘Ayyaash said

َلا أُصَلِّي عََلى رَافِضِيٍّ وََلا حَرُو ِ ر ٍّ ي لِأَنَّ َالرَّافِضِيَّ يَجْعَلُ عُمَرَ َ كافِرًا وَاْلحَرُو ِ ريَّ يَجْعَلُ عَلِيًّا َ كافِرًا
I will not pray over the Raafidhee or the Harooree, because the Raafidhee makes ‘Umar a kaafir (disbeliever) and the Harooree makes ‘Alee a Kaafir.

Now lets move to reliable shia narrations, who consider themselves as raafidah. & see how they cleverly made hadiths to protect themselves.

Al-Barqi’s Al-Mahaasin, Chapter on Raafidah

باب الرافضة

Chapter on Raafidah

عنه عن علي بن أسباط عن عيينة بياع القصب عن أبي عبد الله ع قال و الله لنعم الاسم الذي منحكم الله ما دمتم تأخذون بقولنا و لا تكذبون علينا قال و قال لي أبو عبد الله ع هذا القول إني كنت خبرته أن رجلا قال لي إياك أن تكون رافضيا

Abee `Abd Allaah(as) said: ‘By Allaah, Allaah has bestowed this name as a blessing, as long as you take our sayings and do not (attribute) lies upon us.’ Aboo `Abd Allaah said to me this statement I told him that a man said to me ‘Beware of being a Raafida’

& hadith is Muwaththaq (Reliable) according to Al-Khoei’s Mu`jam.

عنه عن يعقوب بن يزيد عن صفوان بن يحيى عن أبي أسامة زيد الشحام عن أبي الجارود قال أصم الله أذنيه كما أعمى عينيه إن لم يكن سمع أبا جعفر ع يقول إن فلانا سمانا باسم قال و ما ذاك الاسم قال سمانا الرافضة فقال أبو جعفر ع بيده إلى صدره و أنا من الرافضة و هو مني قالها ثلاثا

May Allaah make deaf his ears as he has blinded his eyes if he did not hear Abaa Ja`far (عليه السلام) say so-and-so called us a name. He said: ‘And what is this name?’ He said: ‘He calls us Raafidah.’ So Aboo Ja`far (عليه السلام) put his hand on his chest and said three times: ‘I am from the Raafidah and he is from me’.
Al-Barqi, Al-Mahaasin, vol. 1, ch. 24, pg. 157, hadeeth # 91

فقال أبو جعفر ع إن سبعين رجلا من عسكر فرعون رفضوا فرعون فأتوا موسى ع فلم يكن في قوم موسى ع أحد أشد اجتهادا و لا أشد حبا لهارون منهم فسماهم قوم موسى الرافضة فأوحى الله إلى موسى أن ثبت لهم هذا الاسم في التوراة

So Aboo Ja`far said: ‘Verily 70 men from fir`awn’s camp rejected (rafadoo) fir`awn and came to Moosa (عليه السلام). There was no one from the people of Moosa (عليه السلام) who (showed) diligence and love to Haroon more than them, so the people of Moosa was name Raafidee, and Allaah revealed to Moosa this name and established them in the Torah

Abee `Abd Allaah (عليه السلام) “And that 70 men from the people of firawn reject (rafadoo) fir`awn and entered in the religion of Moosa (عليه السلام). So Allaah, the Most High, named them Al-Raafidah, and revealed to Moosa that establishes them in the Torah…”
Al-Furaat, Tafseer Furaat, vol. 1, pg. 377, hadeeth # 506
Al-Majlisi, Bihaar Al-Anwaar, vol. 65, ch. 17, pg. 97, hadeeth # 4
& hadith is Daeef according to Al-Khoei’s Mu`jam.

Note: But the greatest problem with shia book Al-Barqi, Al-Mahaasin [from where these shia hadiths are taken] is not reliable.

The ikhtilaf regarding the authenticity of the present copy of al-Mahasin because of its unknown tareeq. See what shia Shaykh al-Radhy said:

الكتب غير المعتبرة أو عليها علامة استفهام :
قال حول هذا الموضوع :
( الروايات غير المعتبرة , إما غير معتبرة مصدراً وسنداً , وإما سنداً فقط , وإما مصدراً فقط بأن كان السند من صاحب الكتاب إلى الإمام عليه السلام معتبراً لكن المؤلف نفسه كان مجهول الحال أو كان ثقة لكن نسبة الكتاب إليه غير ثابتة وأن نسخة الكتاب لم تصل إلى اصحاب الجوامع الموجودة كالوسائل و الوافي وبحار الأنوار و مستدرك الوسائل مثلاً بالمناوبة والعنعنة المعتبرة المتصلة , بل وصلت إليهم بالوجادة .

وإليك قائمة ناقصة من هذه الكتب من مصادر بحار الأنوار .

1- كتاب علي بن جعفر عليه السلام .

2- محاسن البرقي .

3- تفسير علي بن إبراهيم .

4- بصائر الدرجات للصفار .

5- كتاب الزهد للحسين بن سعيد .

6- نوادر أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى .

7- قرب الاسناد للحميري .

8- بعض كتب الصدوق كما أشار إليه العلامة المجلسي رحمه الله .

9- أمالي الشيخ المفيد .

10- أمالي الشيخ الطوسي .

. . . . . . .

Therefore, the present copy of al-Mahaasin is not mutabar but what is mentioned in Wasael from Kitab al-Mahaasin is reliable. Ayatullah Baqir as-Sadr also authenticated hadith using this tareeq because the tareeq to the present copy of Kitab al-Mahaasin is unknown.

Shia don’t know that the present copy of al-Mahaasin has reached to them, through this tareeq or some other tareeq that’s why it’s regarded as majhool and only what is mentioned in Wasael from Kitab al-Mahasin is accepted as sahih. The case here is same as shia book Basair ad-Darajaat of al-Safar. What sheikh al-radhy said is because of omission and additions done to mahaasin.

& this type of omission and additions in the text was done in shia book was very common as discussed here & here.

& who knows what they did with the SANAD’s of these books!

These additions and subtractions are also the result of different taraiq and also proves that the present copy has not reached today through sahih tareeq.

وصول الكتاب الحديثي الينا بطريق صحيح وغير مطعون فيه، اي يجب ان يسلم من الخدشة منذ زمن تاليفه وحتى زمان وصوله بايدينا، فمثلا : ان كتاب المحاسن ليس فيه شك من حيث نسبته الى احمدبن محمد بن خالد البرقي وكذا لا شك في جلالة شانه ووثاقته واعتبار الكتاب ومحتواه في نظر الاصحاب، لكن هل ان كتاب المحاسن الموجود فعلا هو نفس كتاب المحاسن الذي الفه احمد بن محمد بن خالد البرقي ؟ فيه بحث وتامل ؛فانه من المحتمل وقوع تغيير في هذا الكتاب .

And that’s why scholars such as Syed Baqir as-Sadr authenticate the ahadith of al-Mahasin only through the tareeq of Sahib al-Wasael and only what is mentioned in al-Wasael from al-Mahaasin.

وتصحيح نقل الوسائل للرواية من المحاسن يكون بالتركيب بين طريق الشيخ إلى المحاسن وطريق صاحب الوسائل إلى الشيخ

& these rafidi shia call us nawasib, lets see what is the definition of nawasib from shia hadith:

From ilal shara’i by sheikh sadooq that shows the true nawasib and that they are so many today, alive and well i.e. sunni’s.

ابن الوليد، عن محمد العطار، عن الاشعري، عن إبراهيم بن إسحاق، عن عبد الله بن حماد، عن عبد الله بن سنان، عن أبي عبد الله عليه السلام قال: ليس الناصب من نصب لنا أهل البيت لانك لا تجد رجلا يقول: أنا ابغض محمدا وآل محمد ولكن الناصب من نصب لكم وهو يعلم أنكم تتولونا وأنكم من شيعتنا

narrated ibn al-waleed from muhammed al-attar from al-ash’ari from ibrahim ibn ishaaq from abdullah ibn hammad from abdullah ibn sinan from abi abdilleh (Imam Sadiq) he said: the nasibi is not whoever shows enmity towards us (ahlbait(as)) because you will not find a man saying: i hate muhammed and aal-muhammed but the nasibi is whoever showed enmity towards you (the shia) and he know that you follow us and that you are our shia (supporters) .

Note: This narration is another proof of the evil and dangerous nature of Rafidism. Look, they attributed those Ahadith to the Imams of Ahl Al Bait (ra) because they knew they can’t fool their own blind followers forever by telling them that Sunnis hate the Ahl Al Bait! They knew that ALL the Sunnis not just love the Ahl Al Bait rather they belief its a branch of belief to love them (almost every Aqidah book has a section of: Loving the Ahl Al Bait and hating the Nawasib, also in Ibn Taymiyyahs Aqidah book “Aqidat Al Wasitiah”.

  1. Salam brother,

    good article but I am confused. Was Zaid bin ali bin al-hussain bin ali (ra) alive during Abubaker (radialahu anh) and Umar (radialahu anh)?

    Thanks,

  2. so do you tell us to honour abu bakr and umar , the same ppl who burnt the door of Fatima {sa} just to force Ali for allegience. Also the same door pissed sayyida to the extent of the shahadah of mohsin. This is the same door where angels even dint enter w/o permission.We all know Prophet never spoke w/o revelation n so when on deathbed y did umar say Prophet was talking in hileria.Also a leader is one who is the best in character at th time n we all agree Ali was the best in every aspect ,just n kind n alim n most importantly chosen by Allah as in ghadir, dawatuldhul ashira battle of tabuk nwas also declared kullu iman in battle of khaybar.one who snatches ones properties is a dhalim n tareekh says fadak to be a gift to h.prophet by jews after khaybar nthen this gifted to Fatima as also it was her right and her inheritance.thus do dhalims be capable of being representives [khalif] of Holy Prophet, impossible
