Indeed, this Qur’an guides to that which is most suitable and gives good tidings to the believers who do righteous deeds that they will have a great reward. [Quran 17:9]

Iranian brother, a former Shia and TV presenter, talks about his journey from Shia Twelver sect to Ahl-Sunnah, the original Islam, the Islam of Ahlulbayt and Sahaba.
Ex-Shia from Iran brother Hamid explains why he abandoned the Twelver Shia sect and joined the authentic Islam.
I’ve first seen this `Iraqi Shia Doctor on “al-Mustaqillah” TV channel in 2008, where he was debating and advertising for the Shia Madhab in the daily TV episodes all throughout Ramadan.
Although polite and moderate in his approach, he used to be very critical of the Sahabah and very suspicious and often accused them of ill-intentions and conspiracies against the household.
Praise be to Allah, this Ramadan I was browsing youtube videos related to Tashayyu`, what I saw made tremble, the audacity and filth that is posted all around youtube, from Shia scholars claiming `Ali to be their Lord on the day of judgement, and others claiming the Imams turned sand into honey similar to the miracles of certain prophets, and stories of the Imams would revive the dead… all of it disgusting and is guaranteed to make you lose your appetite even in Ramadan… One video posted in 2014 caught my eye which said “Shia doctor is guided”, I saw the image of Sa`d al-Rifi`ee on the thumbnail but assumed the doctor was some unknown man who calls the show.
Praise be to Allah, I was wrong, and it turns out that after several years of debating, finally Dr.Sa`d al-Rifi`ee the respected `Iraqi Shia researcher admitted: “Abu Bakr may Allah be pleased with him held on to the Sunnah” and he said “`Umar bin al-Khattab was blessed by Allah may Allah be pleased with him and he made the conquests and spread the religion” and he said “`Uthman bin `Affan had many shortcomings but he was a good man…”
What happened is that his Rafidhi scholars couldn’t even wait until the episode ended, the Rafidhi `Ali al-Kourani called his cell-phone during the episode and humiliated him, he humiliated him because he made Du`a’ for the Sahabah, Sistani’s representative in Koufah also called him after the show and cursed him.

Bismillah, Alhamdulillah May Allahs peace and blessings be upon Rasoolillah and his family and companions.
I found this forum through the twelvershia twitter account who asked me to share my reversion story here, so Inshaallah I will try although im not very good at writing/expressing myself.
I was brought up in the west, in a shi’a family, who were not very religious, nor was I, however I did attend shi’a “islamic” school on weekends for 3 years as a child. During that time I really hated going there as I didn’t find any spiritual satisfaction, and to this day some of the only things i can remember learning about while attending that school were the 12 imams and having to memorize their full names and titles. I also can remember one teacher going on about how great Ali [r] is and saying “he’s sooo great that some people in the world even worship him!….but thats haraam, dont do that.” So he was almost justifying the Alawi’s worship of Ali by saying “thats how great he is”. Also he never said its an act of shirk, but only said its “haraam”…as if worshipping Ali is similiar in sin to drinking alcohol. To be fair and just, the one benefit I got from there was learning to read arabic.
Anways once I got to high school, I had stopped going to the shia weekend school, and at this part of my life I had turned to the sinful life and all the evils that many youth fall into, I was engaged with those things and pretty much forgot religion, although many of my friends who drank and did drugs with me were muslims, and sunnis too, but they never really gave me da’wah, or if they tried to they were too ignorant to know how, for example one would just say “Shi’ism is no good, Sunni is the truth”, and when I asked why, they wouldnt have any answer.
It wasnt until my early twenties that I encountered a Sunni who gave me da’wah in a real way. I was at a friends place one night and we were smoking and getting high, the usual thing. I was introduced to a Palestinian brother and it had been mentioned to him that I was Shi’a. This brother immediately started speaking to me about Shi’a and Iranian hypocrisy and all this politic stuff which, at that time I knew very little about, I was a whitewashed type of guy.
So we started debating about shi’ism, and It was only when the brother mentioned one thing to me that a doubt about shi’ism entered my heart…and it was that he mentioned that Mu’awiyah [r] was the one who opened India, or sent an army there. Now today I’m not quite sure if it was even Mu’awiyah or someone else from Banu Umayya who sent that army, but the point is that when I heard this, i was kind of shocked because up until that point I had never heard anything positive about Mu’awiyah [r] or Abu bakr [r] or Umar[r], because I had learned as a kid that they were usurpers and hypocrites. At the end of the debate, i told the brother that I am open minded and that I intend to read both Sahih al Bukhari and Al-Kafi and then i’ll decide which is true.
From that point I started my research, and this point in my life happened to be a point where I was also reflecting on my sinful past and wanted to change, and had started reading the Qur’an again. I never actually read ALL of al-bukhari or al-Kafi, or even close to all of them. But i looked at both sides and their arguments and I eventually came accross a video with Bilal Philips where he was breaking down the shi’a creed and explained how its basically a polytheistic creed with regard to what they believe about their imams. Some of you may have seen the video. This put a major doubt in my heart about shi’ism because if they dont have Tawheed, then why would anything else even matter?? Why even talk about fiqh differences or issues related to the sahaaba [r] ?? Once their tawheed was shattered, then that basically destroyed their entire religion. Tawheed was always left in my Fitra….in fact when I was jaahil in high school I used to listen to rastafarian type of reggae songs because they preached about God in a more monotheistic way than Shi’ism.
The last thing which sealed the deal for me that Sunni Islam was the truth was after visiting an islamic bookstore with the same palestinian brother who i debated with before. While there, I noticed the book Kitaab-at-Tawheed, and i noticed the author Muhammad bin Abdul-Wahhab who I had negative pre-concieved notions about. I remembered my father had told me that the “Wahhabis” were the worst among Sunnis and the most extreme. This actually made me want to read the book even more because I was very curious and interested in this “wahhabi” stuff that i’d heard so much about and wanted to know what it actually was from the source. So i bought the book and read it, and after coming to the chapter called “Seeking help in other than Allah is an act of Shirk” and I read the evidences from the Qur’an and Hadith and then stopped and thought about my father and others who say “Ya Ali Madad.” It was at this point i decided shi’ism cannot be the truth and that i wanted to follow the path of Tawheed which seemed to only be the way of Ahlus Sunnah Wa’l Jama’ah.
And that is how I became Sunni, w’alhamdulillah, and have remained for 7 years now.
Some other reasons I chose Sunni Islam over Shi’a:
1) It’s not logical that throughout thousands of years of mankind that all the prophets send to mankind came to just inform us that in the end of time there will be another prophet whos family you must obsess over and worship. That cannot be the purpose of life.
2) There can only be One true religion, but could it possibly be shi’ism? imagine if the whole world accepted twelver shiism….imagine now the month of muharram, everyone in the world doing mattam…..How bloody would that month be??
3) Sunni islam is multi-cultural….while shi’ah for the most part are just Persians/Arabs/Indo-Pak….and their books contain racism as well so maybe its for that reason.
3) The description of the Dajjal in Sunni books seems to be almost identical to the description of what the 12th Imam will be like when he “returns” according to Shi’ah books….so the person who the shi’ah take as their 12th imam when he “returns” will most likely be in fact the Dajjal. (Note: There really was no 12th imam since the 11th one never had any children according to historical records)
There are many other reasons but I cant list them all. The more I studied the matter the more and more I became certain that shi’ism is not the truth and that the Sunnah is the truth.
I praise and thank Allah that he guided me to the truth and saved me from the darkness of falsehood. I ask Allah to forgive my sins and keep me steadfast on his religion.
