Infallible Imam’s Taqqiya cost him his followers

al-Salamu `Aleykum,

We continue exposing this horrible ritual the Shia call Taqiyyah and we show its stupidity and meaninglessness.

وأما الذين أثبتوا الإمامة لعلي بن أبي طالب ثم للحسن ثم للحسين ثم لعلي بن الحسين ثم نزلوا بعد وفاة علي بن الحسين إلى القول بإمامة ابنه أبي جعفر محمد بن علي بن الحسين باقر العلم وأقاموا على إمامته إلى أن توفي، غير نفر يسير منهم فإنهم سمعوا رجلا منهم يقال له عمر بن رياح زعم أنه سأل أبا جعفر عن مسألة فأجابه فيها بجواب ثم عاد إليه في عام آخر فسأله عن تلك المسألة بعينها فأجابه فيها بخلاف الجواب الأول، فقال لأبي جعفر: هذا خلاف ما أجبتني في هذه المسألة العام الماضي، فقال له: إن جوابنا ربما خرج على وجه التقية، فشك في أمره وإمامته، فلقي رجلا من أصحاب أبي جعفر يقال له محمد بن قيس فقال له: إني سألت أبا جعفر عن مسألة فأجابني فيها بجواب ثم سألته عنها في عام آخر فأجابني فيها بخلاف جوابه الأول فقلت له لم فعلت ذلك فقال فعلته للتقية وقد علم الله أني ما سألته عنها إلا وأنا صحيح العزم على التدين بما يفتيني به وقبوله والعمل به فلا وجه لاتقائه إياي وهذه حالي، فقال له محمد بن قيس: فلعله حضرك من اتقاه؟ فقال: ما حضر مجلسه في واحدة من المسألتين غيري، ولكن جوابيه جميعا خرجا على وجه التبخيت ولم يحفظ ما أجاب به في العام الماضي فيجيب بمثله. فرجع عن إمامته وقال: لا يكون إماما من يفتي بالباطل على شيء بوجه من الوجوه ولا في حال من الأحوال، ولا يكون إماما من يفتي تقية بغير ما يجب عند الله ولا من يرخي ستره ويغلق بابه، ولا يسع الإمام إلا الخروج والأمر بالمعروف والنهي عن المنكر، فمال بسببه إلى قول البترية ومال معه نفر يسير

al-Ash`ari al-Qummi says in Firaq al-Shia when discussing the followers of al-Baqir (rah):

[As for those who proved the Imamah for `Ali bin abi Talib, then Hassan, then Hussein, then `Ali bin al-Hussein, and afterwards they declared their belief in the Imamah of his son abu Ja`far Muhammad al-Baqir and remained on this state until his death, except a small group from them, because they heard a man called `Umar bin Rayah claim that he asked abu Ja`far about a matter and he gave him an answer, then he returned the next year and asked about the exact same matter but this time he received an answer that opposes the first answer he originally received. He told abu Ja`far: “This opposes the answer you gave me last year.” he replied: “Maybe our answer was out of Taqiyyah.” so he doubted his Imamah. He later met a man from the companions of abu Ja`far called Muhammad bin Qays, so he told him: “I had asked abu Ja`far about a matter so he answered me, then I asked him about it another year so he answered differently, I asked him why did he do this, he said he did it out of Taqiyyah, and Allah knows that I only asked when I was full of faith in him and sincerity and I wanted to practice upon his verdict, so he had no reason to do Taqiyyah with me.” ibn Qays said: “Maybe he did Taqiyyah because there was someone else in attendance?” He said: “Nobody attended our Majlis in both those times, but his answers were random and he didn’t memorize what he said the previous year so he can answer with it again.” So he disbelieved in his Imamah and said: “He who gives false verdicts cannot be an Imam in any way shape or form, and he who gives his verdicts as Taqiyyah in a way that does not please Allah cannot be an Imam, nor he who sits comfortably at home and keeps his door shut, the Imam must rise against oppression and order what is good and forbid what is evil.” This is why he leaned towards the opinion of the Batriyyah and a small group followed him on this.]
