بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم
In the this article we will use two reliable and well-known sources of the Shia such as Tafsir al-Mizan and Sahife Sajadia. We first start with the Tafsir al-mizan work of a well-known Shia scholar, Allameh Muhammad Husayn Tabatabaei.
Allah says in the Quran:
وَالسَّابِقُونَ الْأَوَّلُونَ مِنَ الْمُهَاجِرِينَ وَالْأَنصَارِ وَالَّذِينَ اتَّبَعُوهُم بِإِحْسَانٍ رَّضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمْ وَرَضُوا عَنْهُ وَأَعَدَّ لَهُمْ جَنَّاتٍ تَجْرِي تَحْتَهَا الْأَنْهَارُ خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا أَبَدًا ۚ ذَٰلِكَ الْفَوْزُ الْعَظِيمُAnd the first forerunners [in the faith] among the Muhajireen and the Ansar and those who followed them with good conduct – Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him, and He has prepared for them gardens beneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide forever. That is the great attainment. [9:100]
Check his sincere Tafsir of the verse above. Go to http://www.holyquran…izan/index.html then go to Ayah 100 of Surah Al-Tawbah.
“because God has not restricted the ‘those who follow them’ part therefore we conclude from the verse that this part ‘those who follow them’ relates to Muslims of all times who follow the Sabeqoon (Sahaba) therefore it is necessary to conclude that from the they of Be’sah till the end fo the world: Muslims who are not hypocrite will be divided into three groups those pioneers of immigrants those pioneers of helpers and those who follow them the first two groups are not followers but they are Imams and are to be followed and the third group cannot see as those who are followed unless in a relative sense (i.e. we follow the third group who in turn follow the first two groups)”
(The video is about the great status of the Sahaba)
He rejects: Infallibility/Rajah/Shia-Shirki Tawasul/Takfeer of the Sahaba/Knowledge of the unseen for Imams/Turbah in prayer (he got a nice article refuting it, and many Rafidi Khurafat, he is an “Ayatollah” himself, but he does not wear the priest habit anymore. Some believe he also does not believe in Wilayah/Imamah but is scared due to the pressure of the Iranian regime, for he can’t leave the country and is not allowed to preach in Mosques. Anyway his state of health is not the best and he can’t leave Iran anyway (some of his books are allowed to be published in Iran, some not, like refutations on some Rafidi beliefs).

Subhanallah! there is not a SINGLE Ayah ordering us to follow “12 Imams” only, not a single Ayah saying:”Follow Ahl Al-Bait, those who follow Ahl Al-Bait are the victorious ones, Allah is pleased with them etc.”, yet, there is a clear-cut, MUHKAM Ayah telling us that those who followed the SABIQOON of the Sahaba (among them Ali, Omar, Abu Bakr etc.) in goodness, Allah is PLEASED with them. The same MUHAJIR SAHABA Sabiqoon overwhelmingly agreed on Abu Bakr the Siddiq of this Ummah.
Imam Sajad and his dua for those who follow the Sahaba (Companions) of Messenger of Allah (صلی الله علیه وسلم)
Imam Sajjad (zayn al ‘Abideen) rahimahollah says in Sahifeye Sajjadia, prayer number 4 (note Sahifa Sajjadya is considered as the mos important Du’a book of the Shia sect ):You can read the full Dua on the Shia website: http://al-islam.org/sahifa/dua4.html
According to this book, Imam Sajad (considered by the Shia as their fourth divinely appointed Imam) used to pray with these words:
O God, and give to those who have done well in following the Companions, who say, Our Lord, forgive us and our brothers who went before us in faith (Al-Qur’an 59: 10) thy best reward; those who went straight to the Companions’ road, sought out their course, and proceeded in their manner. No doubt concerning their sure insight diverted them and no uncertainty shook them from following in their tracks and being led by the guidance of their light. As their assistants and supporters, they professed their religion, gained guidance through their guidance, came to agreement with them, and never accused them in what they passed on to them.” (Sahifeye Sajjadia – 4th Prayer)
ALLAHO AKBAR! HOW CLEAR IT IS. MAY ALLAH BE SATISFIED WITH ALI IBN AL HUSSEIN (Zayn al abideen).
Since always Rafidha claim that they follow the Ahlelbayt and we the Sahaba (which is a ridiculous statement since the Ahlelbayt are Sahaba aswell).
Contrary to what they suggest (about referring to Ahlalbyat), Aliebnel Husayn in his book Sahifeye Sajjadia (which is considered as a very reliable book by Zaidi and Imami Shia scholars) advises us to learn our religion from the companions of the Prophet صلی الله علیه وسلم (which is quite ironically is exactly what Ahl Al Sunna are trying to do).
