Revolutions are Haram in Shiism

Alsalam alaykum,

In Wasa’el Al-Shia under the chapter of باب حكم الخروج بالسيف قبل قيام القائم (The Ruling Regarding Revolting with the Sword before the Qa’im), we find the following narration:

وعنه ، عن أحمد بن محمد ، عن الحسين بن سعيد ، عن حماد بن عيسى ، عن الحسين بن المختار ، عن أبي بصير ، عن أبي عبدالله ( عليه السلام ) قال : كل راية ترفع قبل قيام القائم ( عليه السلام ) فصاحبها طاغوت يعبد من دون الله عزّ وجلّ .

Rough translation: From him (Mohammed bin Yahya) from Ahmad bin Mohammed from Al-Hussain bin Sa’eed from Hammad bin Eisa from Al-Hussain bin Al-Mukhtar from Abi Baseer from

Abu Abdullah: Every flag that has been raised before the rise of Al-Qa’im (Al-Mahdi) is (raised) by a taaghut (demon/magician/evil person) that is worshipped separately from Allah.

I say: The narration is authentic.

Someone should tell the Shias in Bahrain that what they are doing is haram.
