~ A Glimpse Into The Creed of The Twelver Shi’a – Shaykh Muhammad ibn Rabee’ al-Madkhalee [Audio|Ar-En]
Bismillaah wa -Alhamdulillaah wa Salaatu wa Salaam ‘alaa Rasulillaah ‘amma ba’d
Muwahhideen Publications organized a LIVE Tele-Lecture with the Noble Shaykh Muhammad ibn Rabee’ ibn Hadi’ al-Madkhalee (May AllaahPreserve Him), son of Ash-Shaykh al-Allaamah Rabee’ ibn Hadi al-Madkhalee (May Allaah Preserve Him) and a professor of ‘Aqeedah in TheIslaamic University of Madeenah.
This session was translated LIVE into English.
Our Noble Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Rabee’ (hafidhahullaah) began by saying that truly the shi’a have been a tribulation and test from Allaah upon the Ummah; it has been a calamity that befell this Ummah and surely this is the way of Allaah, that He tests His slaves. For this dunya is a life of fitan, assessing the mettle of the servants of Allaah; it is an abode where good and evil mingle, contrary to the aakhirah which is the life of exclusive truth where evil does not mix with the good.
Shaykh Muhammad then went on to describe the history of this deviant group and how they came about. He explained the atmosphere after the murder of ‘Uthmaan (radhiyAllaahu ‘anhu) and the two positions held by the Sahabah concerning how the issue should be dealt with. He explained the role of the hypocrites in this fitnah and then went on to shed some light on the character of ‘Abdullaah Ibn Saba’ and the falsehood and shirkhe injected into the pure Islaamic Creed from within. From them is his belief that ‘Ali (radhiyAllaahu ‘anhu) had more right to the khilaafah thanAbu Bakr, ‘Umar and ‘Uthmaan (radiyAllaahu ‘anhum). He then went a step further and declared ‘Ali (radhiyAllaahu ‘anhu) to be the embodiment of Allaah and exalted be Allaah above the falsehood that he claime d.
Our Shaykh proceeded to explain that there is a group of shi’a who believed that ‘Ali (radhiyAllaahu ‘anhu) was the best of the companions. However, they did not see the first three khulafaa as evil men but believed in their virtue, loved them for the sake of Allaah and even prayed for them. This group is the smallest and for the most part no longer existent.
Now, the matter has changed and they base allegiance and enmity on a person’s stance on Abu Bakr, ‘Umar and ‘Uthmaan (radhiyAlllahu ‘anhum); they make it obligatory to hate them and render them enemies of Allaah and if one refuses to do such they claim that this individual is misguided or might even make takfir on him.
The Shaykh then went on to say that the shi’a fall into two groups – the twelvers and the zaydiyyah and between these two are vast differences in understanding and creed. The twelvers epitomize misguidance of the greatest magnitude; their beliefs are deeply rooted in shirk and even the affair of racism has entered upon them as they believe in the virtue of the Persian lineage.
Shaykh Muhammad (hafidhahullaah) continued by enlightening us about the linguistic meanings for the terms ‘shi’a’ and ‘raafidhah’ and explained the story behind them being referred to as the raafidhah.
He then proceeded to touch on their beliefs regarding the twelve Imaams whom they deify and deem to be infallible. Here the Shaykh listed the twelve Imaams and then explained that as for the twelfth Imaam, whom they claim has been alive for over 1200 years has never existed historically as his father, Hasan, never bore any children!
Our Shaykh further delved into some of their atrocious beliefs such as the deifying of Ahlul Bayt and their calling upon them in times of ease and hardship as well as their disgusting notion that the Qur’aan has been tampered with, is missing two thirds and the complete Qur’aan which they refer to as the version of Faatimah will only come in the time of the Mahdi. The consensus of the people of Islaam is that this is clear kufr.
Shaykh Muhammad (hafidhahullaah) concluded this sitting by saying that the danger and enmity of the shi’a is more severe than that of the jews and christians as acquisition of our wealth and land will please them (the jews and christians) but these shi’a have great resolve to spread their creed and would settle for nothing less than to drink our blood and ensure that no one from Ahlus Sunnah remains on the face of the earth. They sleep and awake upon their devilish schemes and plots.
This lecture is a must listen for the seeker of truth who wishes to acquaint himself/herself with the falsehood of the shi’a so that he/she may be wary of them as they seek to spread their repugnant beliefs.
