All praise be to Allah, the Rabb of the worlds, peace and blessings of Allah be upon the seal of the prophets, upon his Ahlul Bayt, his Sahabah and whosoever follows his guidance as well as his way of life till the Day of Judgment.


The Nabi salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam has said:


That which had afflicted the Banu Isra’il, surely will afflict my ummah as well. The Banu Isra’il split into seventy-two groups, and my ummah will split into seventy-three groups, with one additional group among them. All these groups will enter Jahannam except one — the Sahabah asked — “who will this group be that will turn away from the rest?” He said, “those who will follow my way and the way of my Sahabah.”


Indeed I came across a book by the name of al Shia wa Tahrif Qur’an, this book is one of the books that falls under the effort of the author, wherein he exposes and clarifies the reality of the Shia creed, and reveals therein the deviation and falsehood of their ‘aqidah (belief), and the impossibility of finding common ground between them and the Ahlus Sunnah, unless one of the parties relinquishes its belief.


Allah says in the Qur’an:

اَفَتَطْمَعُوْنَ اَنْ یُّؤْمِنُوْا لَكُمْ وَقَدْ کَانَ فَرِیْقٌ مِّنْهُمْ یَسْمَعُوْنَ کَلٰمَ اللّٰهِ ثُمَّ یُحَرِّفُوْنَهمِنْۢ بَعْدِ مَا عَقَلُوْهُ وَهُمْ یَعْلَمُوْنَ

Do you covert (the hope, O believers), that they would believe for you while a party of them used to hear the words of Allah and then distort the Torah after they had understood it while they were knowing?[1]


Let it be known that the Shia Imamiyyah is the most dangerous, worst and most malevolent sect that became ostensible in Islamic history upon Islam as well as the Muslims. It is so, simply because other sects expose their difference in nature and declare outright their disbelief, while on the other hand this sect deals in a fraudulent manner hiding behind their vicious tenet of Taqiyyah (dissimulation), by means of which the Shia were able to hurl a number of criticisms against Islam and the Muslims during its lengthy history. We are not here to expose or to highlight the shameful deeds of the Shia Imamiyyah in every point of theirs. Whosoever wishes for a detailed explanation can refer to the books written on Shi’ism by the author. These books will soon be published, especially the following books: Mowqif al Shia min Ahlus Sunnah, and al Shia wa al Tarikh; which discuss at length their statements, and disgraceful deeds against Islam and the Muslims.

The author — may Allah protect him — reveals to us in this book the reality of the Shia Imamiyyah and their belief regarding the Book of Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala — which falsehood cannot come to it from before it or behind — regarding which they claim that the Qur’an is interpolated as well as incomplete. They say this while contradicting, disbelieving and rejecting Allah’s subhanahu wa ta ‘ala promise and guarantee of protecting the Noble Qur’an:


اِنَّا نَحْنُ نَزَّلْنَا الذِّكْرَ وَ اِنَّا لَهلَحٰفِظُوْنَ

Indeed, it is we who sent down the Qur’an and indeed, we will be its guardian.[2]


The author has presented all the reports of the sect after taking into cognisance the scholastic sciences and objectivism in terms of presentation and discussion, thus the author has extracted the verses and so-called words, which the Shia claim to have been omitted from the Book of Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala, from their canonical works, primary source books and references —which is considered reliable and trustworthy according to them.

The author has gathered the clear cut texts which does not accept any other interpretation, all these texts mention that there are many verses and texts from the Qur’an that have been omitted which were revealed to the Nabi salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. The author has indeed cited all references from where he sourced his information, together with their page numbers; which silences the sceptics and establishes undeniable proof against the stubborn and astray.

I hope that Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala will make this book reach each and every Muslim, especially the true adherents of guidance of the Ahlus Sunnah w l-Jama’ah so that they may know that there is no connection and no mutual approximation whatsoever between the one who forges against Allah and changes the words from the right places,


وَ مَنْ اَظْلَمُ مِمَّنِ افْتَرٰی عَلَی اللّٰهِ الْکَذِبَ

And who is more unjust than the one who invents about Allah untruth.


فَوَیْلٌ لِّلَّذِیْنَ یَكْتُبُوْنَ الْکِتٰبَ بِاَیْدِیْهِمْۗ ثُمَّ یَقُوْلُوْنَ هٰذَا مِنْ عِنْدِ اللّٰهِ لِیَشْتَرُوْا بِهٖ ثَمَنًا قَلِیْلًاؕ فَوَیْلٌ لَّهُمْ مِّمَّا کَتَبَتْ اَیْدِیْهِمْ وَوَیْلٌ لَّهُمْ مِّمَّا یَكْسِبُوْنَ

So woe to those who write the scripture with their own hands, then say, this is from Allah, in order to exchange it for a small price. Woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for what they earn.[3]


I ask Allah — the Most High, the Almighty — to reward the author with the best rewards, to include his work in his good deeds on the Day of Judgement, and we ask Allah subhanahu wa ta ‘ala to make it a means of benefit to Islam and the Muslims at large. And the close of our request is, “all praise belongs to Allah, the Rabb of the entire universe.”
