Wa Alaikum Assalaam
brother in what context should we visit that forum?
isn't it a bad thing to go on those forums and listen to shia filth?
I post Sunnah books on the history on the Sahabah (RA)
They are on Quran and Sunnah.
But choose this name so shia come.
I have post videos of Utham al-kamis and what he says about shia.
There are knowledgeable brother on this topic.
Yes there are shia there but they tend to be weak in knowledge and even the shia don't agree with the really bad groups of shia as well.
I am Taha here
Brother are you the admin of that forum.
جزاك الله خيرا. For the reply.
The Imamah of the Shia, a hidden call for the continuation of Prophet-hood.
Praise be to Allah and peace be upon the messenger of Allah and his family and companions,
The one who closely follows the differences between the Islamic groups certainly knows that the fundamental point that sets the Imami Shia sect apart from all others, is their belief in the need of the existence of an infallible Imam(1) after the Prophet (SAWS) until the coming of the hour.
(1) Imam: Leader, the Shia believe that the leader of the nation is infallible and divinely appointed by Allah.
Shia scholar and `Allamah Muhammad Rida al-Muzaffar says in his book “`Aqa’id al-Imamiyyah” pg102-103:
[There must be in every era an Imam of guidance, who succeeds the prophet in his tasks (…) and based on this, no period of time must be devoid of an Imam whose obedience is obligatory, appointed by Allah most high].
It was natural and expected, that the Shia try to prove the validity of this belief and to defend this belief by all possible means. From one side they present what they hope backs up their call from proofs of `Aql(2) and Naql(3), from another side they initiate a merciless attack on the beliefs of the Muslims who do not believe in this Shia “Imamah”.
(2) `Aql: Human Intellect, meaning they try to present intellectual proofs to back up their claims.
(3) Naql: Divine texts, meaning they also try to present proofs from the Qur’an and the Sunnah.
If this matter of “Imamah” remained within the known bounds of academic research, in a way that it would be presented as a scientific theory resulting from the efforts and research of intellectuals after they studied different proofs, and that this theory was subject to discussion, evaluation and criticism by the men of knowledge and sound opinion, without the need of denying the opinions of those who oppose it and exiling them outside the folds of Islam, then we could have said that there may not have been much harm, as it simply would be a result of human thought, not a non-negotiable fundamental Islamic belief.
However, the Shia scholars took a very dangerous turn with this belief, far from the discussions taking place between the groups within the circle of Islam. This is because they counted the matter of Imamah as being from the foundations of faith like Tawheed(4) and Nubuwwah(5) and Mi`ad(6). They even consider it to be higher than some of those great foundations such as the prophet-hood.
(4) Tawheed: Oneness of God.
(5) Nubuwwah: Prophet-hood.
(6) Mi`ad: The day of resurrection.
From the contemporary Shia scholars who consider it from the foundations of faith are:
Shia grand Ayatullah and Muhaqqiq and `Allamah Ja`far al-Subhani, who says in his book “al-Milal wal-Nihal” 1/257, under the title “Is Imamah from the foundations or the branches”:
[All of the Shia have agreed that it is a foundation from the foundations of faith, and they proved it in their books, this is why they consider that the belief in the leadership of the Imams is necessary for correct Islamic faith, as for Ahlul-Sunnah they wrote in their books that it isn’t a foundation.]
Shia scholar al-`Allamah Muhammad Rida al-Muzaffar says in “`Aqa’id al-Imamiyyah” pg102:
[We (shia) believe that Imamah is a foundation from the foundations of religion, and that Iman(7) cannot be achieved without believing in it.]
(7) Iman: Faith, what makes one a believer in Islam.
Grand Ayatullah Ruh-Ullah al-Musawi al-Khomeini said in “Kashf al-Asrar” pg149:
[The Imamah is one of the foundations of Islamic religion.]
Shia scholar `Abdul-Hussein al-Muzaffar says in “al-Shafi fi Sharh Usool al-Kafi” pg49:
[This is why it is obligatory upon us to search for the Imamah, as it is a foundation from the foundations of the religion and it (faith) is not correct without it.]
Grand Ayatullah Nasir Makarim al-Shirazi says in “Nafahat al-Qur’an” 9/10:
[Imamah in the view of the Shia sect and the followers of Ahlul-Bayt (as) is from the foundations of religion and fundamentals of faith, on the other hand the sect of Ahlul-Sunnah considers it from the branches and practical rulings.]
Ayatullah al-Sayyed `Ali al-Husseini and Milani says in “al-Imamah fi Ahamm al-Kutub al-Kalamiyyah” pg43:
[Either Imamah is from the foundations of religion and faith or it is from the branches? The truth is: It is from the foundations just like prophet-hood.]
Grand Ayatullah `Abdul-Hussein Sharaf-ul-Deen al-Musawi says in “al-Muraja`at” pg260:
[Know that it shows that the Wilayah of `Ali(8) is from the foundations of religion, as the Imamiyyah believe.](contd)
