The Shia and their lies in the name of the Ahlul Bayt


إِنَّ الَّذِيْنَ فَرَّقُوْا دِيْنَهُمْ وَكَانُوْا شِيَعًا لَّسْتَ مِنْهُمْ فِيْ شَيْءٍ

Indeed, those who divided have divided their religion and became sects – you, [O Muhammad], are not [associated] with them in anything.[1]


Even though they claim to love and follow the Ahlul Bayt, they are in reality nothing but their enemies and haters. They go contrary to their orders and violate their prohibitions. They forbid goodness and command evil. They hate those whom the Ahlul Bayt had loved dearly, whilst they show affection to their enemies. They follow their evil desires and pleasures, without ever going against it. Over and above all of this, they fabricate tales, stories and lies in the name of the Ahlul Bayt, attributing these falsities to them. By doing so, they try to acquire their own goals and gratify the desires of their lowly selves, trying to spread their school of thought and attract the scum among the people to follow the religion which they have invented. In doing so, they suffer a loss in this world and the next, and indeed that is a great loss. The pious members of the Ahlul Bayt never said anything which went contrary to the Qur’an or the Sunnah of the Rasul salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, because the Ahlul Bayt like every other Muslim, were not commanded to follow anything other than the Qur’an of their Rabb and the Sunnah of their Prophet. As mentioned in the following verses:

وَأَطِيْعُوا اللّٰهَ وَالرَّسُوْلَ

Obey Allah and obey the Messenger.[2]


وَأَطِيْعُوا اللّٰهَ وَالرَّسُوْلَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُوْنَ

And obey Allah and the Messenger that you may obtain mercy.[3]


وَمَا كَانَ لِمُؤْمِنٍ وَلَا مُؤْمِنَةٍ إِذَا قَضَى اللّٰهُ وَرَسُوْلُهُ أَمْرًا أَنْ يَّكُوْنَ لَهُمُ الْخِيَرَةُ مِنْ أَمْرِهِمْ وَمَنْ يَّعْصِ اللّٰهَ وَرَسُوْلَهُ فَقَدْ ضَلَّ ضَلَالًا مُبِيْنًا

It is not for a believing man or a believing woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decided a matter, that they should [thereafter] have any choice about their affair. And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger has certainly strayed into clear error.[4]


Also, from the established Sunnah of the Rasul salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam is the following:


I am leaving with you two things, you will never go astray as long as you hold fast to it. The Book of Allah and my Sunnah.


It is a fact that is admitted by even ‘Ali radiya Llahu ‘anhu and his children, as has been narrated by al Thaqafi in al Gharat:


‘Ali radiya Llahu ‘anhu wrote a letter to the Muslims of Egypt and sent it with Qais ibn Sa’d ibn ‘Ubadah al Ansari, the one whom he had assigned as the governor over Egypt. In it he called the people to pledge allegiance to him saying, “Alas! Your right concerning our duty is practicing upon the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Rasul salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam.”[5]


He then mentioned:


When he had finished reading the letter, Qais ibn Sa’d ibn ‘Ubadah al Ansari stood up to deliver a lecture. After praising Allah he said, “Stand up and pledge allegiance on the grounds of following the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Rasul salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. For if we do not practice by the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Rasul salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, then there is no allegiance from you to us.” Thereafter everyone stood up and gave the pledge of allegiance, and Egypt came under his leadership.[6]


Just as ‘Ali radiya Llahu ‘anhu had sent a letter with the same content to the people of Basrah:


From the servant of Allah, the Amir al Mu’minin to whoever this letter is read to of the Muslims of Basrah. Peace be upon you. If you pledge allegiance to me, accept my advices and are obedient to me, I will only judge among you with the Qur’an and the Sunnah.[7]


He also said that the Rasul of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said:


There is no speech without action, and there is no speech or action without intention, and there is no speech, action or intention without correctly practicing upon the Sunnah.[8]


One of his children, and the sixth infallible Imam of the Shia—according to their claims, has said:


The answer to everything lies in either the Qur’an or the Sunnah.[9]


He also said:


Whoever goes contrary to the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of Muhammad salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam has disbelieved.[10]


It is also reported from his father al Baqir—the fifth infallible Imam according to them—that he said:


Whoever leaves behind the Sunnah will be returned to the same.[11]


It is narrated that his father ‘Ali ibn al Hassan—the fourth Imam—said:


Indeed the most beloved actions to Allah is that which is practiced according to the Sunnah, even if it be a little.[12]


They did not suffice with this, but they have mentioned statements which are even clearer, just as al Kashshi narrates from Jafar ibn al Baqir that he said:


Fear Allah and do not accept from us anything that goes against the speech of our Rabb and the Sunnah of our Prophet Muhammad salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, because whenever we speak we say, “Allah says and the Rasul salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam says.”[13]


Therefore, he ordered those who followed him and those who claimed to follow him as follows:


Do not accept any speech from us which contradicts the Qur’an and the Sunnah.[14]


Before him his father had already made a note of that when he said:


Look at what we order with and whatever comes to you from us, for if you find it to be in conformity with the Qur’an then accept it, and if you do not find it to be in conformity with it then reject it.[15]


Even before him, ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib radiya Llahu ‘anhu had already clarified this fundamental principal when he said:


Accept whatever is in conformity to the Qur’an and leave whatever goes contrary to it.[16]


Al Baqir has narrated something similar to this from the Rasul of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, that he said:


If any speech comes to you, then compare it to the Book of Allah and my Sunnah; accept whatever is in conformity to it and reject whatever contradicts it.[17]


That is what Allah and His Rasul salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam had ordered with, and what we learn from the Ahlul Bayt and the so called Imams of the Shia who are infallible according to their claims.

In light of this, let us examine what the Shia really believe, what they attribute to the Ahlul Bayt, and if those attributions are authentic or false. Let us determine if they are truthful in their speech or if they are liars. Are they fabricating such things which they had not said, or are unable of even comprehending?

We will start with the leader of both worlds, the Imam of the two Qiblah’s and the companion of the two Harams, may my soul and parents be sacrificed for him salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. They had lied in his name tremendously, and they have fabricated such filthy material in his name, and in doing so they have only built their own abodes in the fire.
