THE ORIGIN OF THE NAME RAFIDAH (shias) AND THEIR CRITICISM FROM SALAAF

THE ORIGIN OF THE TITLE GIVEN TO MODERN DAY SHIA'AS I.e "RAFIDAH OR RAWAFIDH "
 



The word Raafidah means “rejecter”, the Rawaafidh (all modern day shia'as and majority of the ancestral shias) have obtained their name by their rejection of Zayd ibn ‘Alee ibn al-Hussayn ibn Alee ibn Abee Taalib, the great grandson of ‘Alee.


Imaam adh-Dhahabee said in his Siyaar A’laam an-Nubalaa (5/390):

قال عيسى بن يونس جاءت الرافضة زيدا فقالوا تبرأ من أبي بكر وعمر حتى
ننصرك قال بل أتولاهما قالوا إذا نرفضك فمن ثم قيل لهم الرافضة


“ ‘Eesaa bin Yoonus said: The Raafidah came to Zayd ibn `Alee and said to him, “Free yourself from Abee Bakr and ‘Umar so that we can aid you.”He replied, “Rather I will give allegiance to them (i.e. Aboo Bakr and ‘Umar).”  They said, “Then we reject you.” So then it was said to them, “ar-Raafidah” (the rejecters).”



Shaykh al-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah mentioned in his Majmoo’ al-Fataawa (4/435):
 

قيل للإمام أحمد : من الرافضي ؟ قال : الذي يسب أبا بكر وعمر . وﺑﻬذا سميت الرافضة، فإﻧﻬم رفضوا زيد بن علي لما تولى الخليفتين أبا بكر وعمر، لبغضهم لهما، فالمبغض لهما هو الرافضي، وقيل : إنما سموا رافضة لرفضهم أبا بكر وعمر

“It was said to Imaam Ahmad: “Who is the Raafidhee?” He said: “Those who insult
Abaa Bakr and ‘Umar.And by this they were named the Raafidah, for they rejected
Zayd bin ‘Alee when he gave allegiance to the two Khaleefah’s Abaa Bakr and ‘Umar,
(so they rejected him) because of their hatred for them. And the one who hates them
(i.e. Aboo Bakr and ‘Umar) is a Raafidhee.” And they were named as the Raafidhah
because of their rejection of Abaa Bakr and ‘Umar.”


He then said:

وأصل الرفض من المنافقين الزنادقة، فإنه ابتدعه ابن سبأ الزنديق

“And the foundation of rejection is from the hypocrites and the heretics, for they
followed the innovation of the heretic Ibn Saba’. ”

He also said in volume 28 on page 483:

وقد ذكر أهل العلم أن مبدأ الرفض إنما كان من الزنديق عبد الله بن سبأ؛ فإنه أظهر الإسلام وأبطن اليهودية، وطلب أن يفسد الإسلام، كما فعل بولص النصرانى، الذى كان يهوديا فى إفساد دين النصارى

“And the people of knowledge have mentioned that the beginning of the Rafdh (rejection) is from the Heretic (Zindeeq) ‘Abdullaah bin Saba’; for he manifested
Islaam and while he hid his Judaism and he sought to cause corruption in Islaam just
like Paul the Christian, who was a Jew who caused corruption in the religion of the
Christians.”


Shaykh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah also said :
From the time of the revolt of Zaid, the Shi’ah were divided into Raafidah and Zaidiyyah, and when he (Zaid) was asked about Abu Bakr and ‘Umar he invoked mercy upon them both, a people rejected him (rafadahu), and he said to them, “You have rejected me (rafadtumoonee)”. So they were called “ar-Raafidah”, due to their rejection of him. And anyone who did not reject him from amongst the Shi’ah was called a “Zaidiyy” due to their ascription to him.

[Ref: Minhaaj as-Sunnah an-Nabawiyyah of Shaykh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah 1/35; Translated by Abu `Iyaad Amjad Rafiq]


So the foundation of the Raafidhee belief is found in this man, ‘Abdullaah bin Saba

Note: this Man 'Abdullah ibn Saba is the founding father of Shi'ism, i.e the man who originated the fitnah and fasaad during the time of Uthman (r.a). He was originally a Jew disguised as a Muslim i.e pretending to be a Muslim, but he wanted to avenge himself and his family and etc by breaking the Ummah from within. There are tons of literature work on him, which will be converted here to docs soon if time permits bi-idhnillah 



Ibn Hajar al-‘Asqalaanee said in his Leesaanul Meezaan:

عبد الله بن سبا من غلاة الزنادقة ضال مضل

“Abdullaah bin Saba’ from the extremists of the heretics, deviated and deviates
others.”


Ibn Abil ‘Izz al-Hanafee mentioned in his Sharh ‘Aqeedatut Tahaawiyyah on page
490:
أصل الرفض إنما أحدثه منافق زنديق ، قصده إبطال دين الإسلام ، والقدح في الرسول صلى الله عليه وسلم ، كما ذكر ذلك العلماء . فإن عبدالله بن سبأ لما أظهر الإسلام ، أراد أن يفسد دين الإسلام بمكره وخبثه ، كما فعل بولس بدين النصرانية ، فأظهر التنسك ، ثم أظهر الأمر بالمعروف والنهي عن المنكر ، حتى سعى في فتنة عثمان وقتله ، ثم لما قدم علي الكوفة أظهر الغلو في علي والنصر له ، ليتمكن بذلك من أغراضه ، وبلغ ذلك عليًا ، فطلب قتله ، فهرب منه إلى قرقيس وخبره معروف في التاريخ

“The foundations of Rafdh (rejection) came to begin from a heretic and hypocrite
who intended to bring falsehood into the religion of Islaam and to bring insult to the
Messenger ( صلى لله عليه وسلم ) as the scholars have mentioned. For indeed, Abdullaah

bin Saba’ when he manifested Islaam, he sought to cause corruption in the religion of
Islaam by plotting and vileness just as what Paul did with the Christian religion. First
he manifested piety and then manifested enjoining the good and forbidding the evil,
until he was involved in the Fitnah of ‘Uthmaan and his killing. Then when he entered
Koofah he manifested extremism for ‘Alee and supporting him to gain from it
necessities and this was made clear to ‘Alee so he sought his killing and fought him to
Qarqees and the narrations of that are known in History.”


Thus from this man (Abdullaah bin Saba’) whom Ahlus Sunnah has criticized;
stemmed this group known as the Rawaafidh Shee’ah.


Ibn Hajar al-Haythamee mentioned in his Majma’ az-Zawaa’id (10/22) the narration of Ibn ‘Abbaas which was reported by at-Tabaraanee with a Hasan chain of narration (according to him) that the Messenger of Allaah ( صلى لله عليه وسلم ) said:

وعن ابن عباس قال : كنت مع النبي - صلى الله عليه وسلم - وعنده علي ، فقال النبي - صلى الله عليه وسلم - : " يا علي ، سيكون في أمتي قوم ينتحلون حب أهل البيت ، لهم نبز يسمون الرافضة ، قاتلوهم فإنهم مشركون " . رواه الطبراني ، وإسناده حسن .

“O ‘Alee, there will be in my Ummah a group of people who will go beyond bounds in love of my family, they will have an insulting name, they will be known as the Raafidah. Fight them, for they are polytheists.”

[ Shaikh Albani has discussed this hadeeth and its likes in detail quoting all the references for this narration and has declared (quoting the jumhoor as well that) all routes are weak in Silsilah ad-Da'eefa (13/568-572) Under hadeeth 6267]

Also the Shaikhs of Islamweb replied :

فإن هذا الحديث رواه الطبراني، وقال الهيثمي في المجمع إسناده حسن، ولكن في سنده الحجاج بن تميم وقد ضعفه العقيلي وتبعه ابن الجوزي والألباني، وللحديث روايات ضعيفة ضعفها ابن الجوزي في العلل المتناهية كما ضعف هذا الحديث أيضاً.

Ibn Hajar al-Haythamee also metioned in his Majma’ az-Zawaa’id (2/10) with a good
chain of narration that ‘Aasim bin Bahdalah said:

قلت للحسن بن علي : الشيعة يزعمون أن عليًا يرجع ؟ قال : كذب أولئك الكذابون، لو علمنا ذلك ما تزوج نساؤه، ولا قسمنا ميراثه

“I said to ‘al-Hasan bin ‘Alee: “The Shee’ah claim that ‘Alee will return.” He said:
“Those liars have lied. For if we had known that, his women would not have married
and we would not have divided his inheritance.”


روى ابن بطة في الإبانة الكبرى باب ذكر افتراق الأمم في دينهم، و على كم تفترق الأمة من حديث أبو علي بن إسماعيل بن العباس الوراق ، قال حدثنا الحسن بن محمد بن الصباح الزعفراني ، قال حدثنا شبابة ، قال حدثنا سوادة بن سلمة أن عبد الله بن قيس رضي الله عنه قال اجتمع عند علي رضي الله عنه جاثليتو النصارى و رأس الجالوت كبير علماء اليهود فقال الرأس:  تجادلون على كم افترقت اليهود؟ قال: على إحدى و سبعين فرق فقال علي رضي الله عنه: لتفترقن هذه الأمة على مثل ذلك، و أضلها فرقة و شرها: الداعية إلينا!! ( أهل البيت ) آية ذلك أﻧﻬم يشتمون أبا بكر و عمر رضي الله عنهما



“Ibn Battah reported in his al-Ibaanah al Kubraa, in the chapter: Mentioning the sections of the Nations in their religion and upon how many sects will the Ummah split into, from the Hadeeth of Abee ‘Alee bin Ismaa’eel bin al-Abbaas al-Warraaq who said: al-Hassan bin Muhammad bin as-Sabaah az-Za’faraanee narrated to me that Shabbaabah said, that Sawaadah bin Salamah said that ‘Abdullaah bin Qays رضي لله عنه) ) said:

“A group of Christians came to ‘Alee ( رضي لله عنه ) and at the head of them was a major scholar of the Jews. So the leader said:

“You debate about how many groups the Jews split into?” He said: “Into seventy one
sects”. And ‘Alee ( رضي لله عنه ) said:

“And this Ummah will split into similar to that, and the most deviated and evil sect of them: the ones who call to us (Ahlul Bayt), and a sign of them is that they insult Aboo Bakr and ‘Umar

 رضي لله عنھما و أبو علي بن العباس الوراق روى عنه الدارقطني و وثقه و قال الذهبي عنه: المحدث الإمام الحجة، و ذكره يوسف بن عمر القواس في جملة شيوخه الثقات

“And as for Aboo ‘Alee bin al-’Abbaas al-Warraaq, then ad-Daaruqutnee reported from him and considered him reliable. And adh-Dhahabee said about him: ((The Scholars of  hadeeth, the Imaam, the Proof)) and Yoosuf bin ‘Amr al-Qawwaas mentioned him from the reliable scholars. Look to Taareekh Baghdaad (6/300) of al-Khateeb al Baghdaadee and al-Muntadhim (6/278) of Ibnul Jawzee and Siyaar A’laam an-Nubalaa (15/74) of  Adh-Dhahabee. And al-Hassan bin Muhammad bin as-Sabaah az-Za’faraanee is Reliable. See
Tahdheeb at-Tahdheeb (2/318) and at-Taqreeb (1/170) of Ibn Hajar al ‘Asqalaanee.”


و روى ابو القاسم البغوي عن علي رضي الله عنه قال: يخرج في أخر الزمان قوم لهم نبز (أي لقب ) يقال لهم الرافضة يعرفون   به، و ينتحلون شيعتنا و ليسوا من شيعتنا، و آية ذلك أﻧﻬم يشتمون أبا بكر و عمر أينما أدركتموهم فاقتلوهم فأﻧﻬم مشركون


“And Abul Qaasim al-Baghawi reported from `Ali (radhiallahu `anhu) that he said: A group will arise in the last times, they will have a nickname (an insulting name), they will be known as the “Raafidhah” (rejecters) and they will be known by it. They will say that they are our “shee`ah” (our group) but they are not from our group. And the signs of that is that they will insult Aba Bakr and `Umar, where ever you find them, then kill them for they are mushrikoon (polytheists).”

PROOFS FROM AHLE BAYT THAT THEY HATED THEIR SO-CALLED SHIA'AS



Note: These are from shia'a sources and like their religion we don't believe in their reports for we have our (Sunni) sources well preserved unlike them and even though sometimes parts of these narrations match with our narrations, we (the sunnis) have a different context and understanding than these rawafidh. The below is only to counter the so called shia's (more appropriately known as rafidah) from their own books.

Imam Jafar as-Sadiq (رضّى الله عنه) said the following about the so-called Shia:

“No one bears greater hatred towards us [the Ahlel Bayt] than those who claim to love us.”

[Abdullâh al-Mâmaqânî, Miqbâs al-Hidâyah vol. 2 p. 414 (Mu’assasat Âl al-Bayt li-Ihyâ’ at-Turâth, Beirut 1991) quoting from Rijâl al-Kashshî.]

During the fight against the people of Syria [Muawiyyah], Ali said to his Shia:

“Woe to you. I am tired of rebuking you. Do you accept this worldly life in place of the next life? Or disgrace in place of dignity? When I invite you to fight your enemy your eyes revolve as though you are in the clutches of death, and in the senselessness of last moments. My pleadings are not understood by you and you remain stunned. It is as though your hearts are affected with madness so that you do not understand. You have lost my confidence for good. Neither are you a support for me to lean upon, nor a means to honour and victory. Your example is that of the camels whose protector has disappeared, so that if they are collected from one side they disperse away from the other side.”

[source:
Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 34, http://www.al-islam.org/nahjul/34.htm]

In the same sermon, Ali (رضّى الله عنه) also condemns the Shia for being trouble-makers and fitnah-mongerers, saying:

“By Allah, how bad are you for igniting flames of war.”

Hasan did not trust these Shia either as they were very disloyal. In his book al-Ihtijâj, the prominent Shia author Abu Mansur at-Tabarsi has preserved the following remark of Hasan:

 “By Allah, I think Muawiyyah would be better for me than these people who claim that they are my Shia (supporters).”

[Abû Mansûr at-Tabarsî, al-Ihtijâj vol. 2 p. 290-291 , Mu’assasat al-A‘lamî, Beirut 1989]

Distrusting his Shia, Hasan (رضّى الله عنه) made peace with Muawiyyah (رضّى الله عنه) and gave him the Caliphate. His Shia protested at this, and Hasan’s reply (رضّى الله عنه) is preserved in the most important of the Shia books of Hadith, Al-Kafi:

“By Allah, I handed over power to him for no reason other than the fact that I could not find any supporters. Had I found supporters I would have fought him day and night until Allah decides between us. But I know the people of Kufa (i.e a city in Iraq where the shia'as were dominant). I have experience of them. The bad ones of them are no good to me. They have no loyalty, nor any integrity in word or deed. They are in disagreement. They claim that their hearts are with us, but their swords are drawn against us.”

[Al-Kafi, vol. 8, p.288]

Hussain’s cousin Muslim Ibn Aqil (رضّى الله عنه) was sold out to Yezid’s men by the Shia. Muslim Ibn Aqil (رضّى الله عنه) sent a message to Hussain (رضّى الله عنه) warning him about the Shia of Kufa:

“Do not be deceived by people of Kufa. They are those same Shia of your father from whom he so dearly wished to part, by death or by being killed. The Kuffans have lied to me and have lied to you, and a liar has no sense.”

Before being executed, Muslim Ibn Aqil (رضّى الله عنه) said about the Shia:

    “O Allah, You be the Judge between us and our people. They deceived us and deserted us.”

Then, Hussain (رضّى الله عنه) would be betrayed by the Shia of Kufa, who would feed him to Yezid’s men who slaughtered Hussain (رضّى الله عنه) at Karbala. Hussain (رضّى الله عنه) would say before being martyred,

    “Our Shia have deserted us.”

And the Shia betrayal of the Ahlul Bayt did not stop with Ali, Hasan, and Hussain; indeed, they did not even spare Hussain’s grandson, Zayd ibn Ali ibn Hussain (رضّى الله عنه). The Shia would betray him on the battlefield, defecting against him. Before being martyred, Zayd (رضّى الله عنه) said:

“I am afraid they have done unto me as they did to Hussain .”

Ali (رضّى الله عنه) condemned the Shia so many times in the Nahjul Balagha, page after page of how much he reviled the people who claimed to be his supporters. Here, Ali (رضّى الله عنه) says that Allah will destroy the Shia of Kufa if they continue to be decietful, and he asks Allah to change his Shia for other supporters, because he distrusts his Shia who are not really his supporters but rather his enemies:

Ali chastises the Shia of Kufa:

“O’ Kufa, if this is your condition that whirlwinds [of deciet] continue blowing through you, then Allah may destroy you…Your disobedience of your Imam in matters of right and their [the Syrian’s] obedience to their leader [Muawiyyah] in matters of wrong, their [the Syrian’s] fulfilment of the trust in favor of their master [Muawiyyah] and your betrayal, their good work in their cities and your mischief. Even if I give you charge of a wooden bowl I fear you would run away with its handle.


Ali invokes Allah against his Shia:

“O my Allah, they are disgusted of me and I am disgusted of them. They are weary of me and I am weary of them. Change them for me with better ones”

[ Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 25, source: http://www.al-islam.org/nahjul/25.htm]

Ali says to his Shia at the Battle of Siffin:

“Keep quiet, may Allah make you ugly, O you with broken tooth. Certainly, by Allah, when truth became manifest even then your personality was weak and your voice was loose. But when wrong began to shout loudly you again sprouted up like the horns of a kid.”

[
Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 183, source: http://www.al-islam.org/nahjul/183.htm]

Ali says to his Shia:

“You are a group whose heads are devoid of wit and intelligence. May you have no father! Allah’s woe be to you!”

[
Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 36]

There are tons and tons of such references wherein the Ahle Bayt has oppenly opposed, denounced and cursed their Shia'as such as :

Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 4 , Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 29 , Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 39 , Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 57 , Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 68 , Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 69 , Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 70 , Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 96 , Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 115 , Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 118 , Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 124 , 126, 130, 179, 191 so on and so forth...


ALI (R.A) GETS ANGRY AT THE ONE WHO ELEVATES HIM ABOVE ABU BAKR AND UMAR (R.A.A)

و بلغ علي أبن أبي طالب أن عبد الله بن السوداء يبغض أبا بكر وعمر فهم بقتله فهاج الناس و قالو له: أتقتل رج ً لا يدعوا إلى حبكم أهل البيت؟ فقال: لا يساكنني في دار أبدآ. ثم أمر بنفيه إلى المدائن عاصمة الفرس

“And ‘Alee bin Abee Taalib clarified that ‘Abdullaah bin as-Sawdaa’ hated Abaa Bakr and ‘Umar, so he gave importance to his killing. So the people became roused and said to him: “Do you kill a man who calls to loving Ahlul Bayt?” He said: “Do not reside with me in my residence ever” Then he ordered with his banishment to Madaa’in, the capital of Persia.”


و روى الحكم بن حجل قال: سمعت علي يقول: لا يفضلني أحد على أبو بكر و عمر رضي الله عنهما إلا جلدته حد المفترى

“And al-Hakm bin Hajal said: I heard ‘Alee saying, “Nobody honors me over Aboo Bakr and ‘Umar ( رضي لله عنھما ) except punish him with the punishment of the lashing of a liar.”

Now this is a "mutawaatir" (too many to deny) narration and alhumdulillah summa alhumdulillah we (sunnis) have tons of such reports , some of which are :

عن المغيرة عن شباك قال: بلغ عليا أن ابن السوداء ينتقص أبا بكر و عمر فدعا به و دعا بالسيف فهم بقتله فكلم فيه فقال: لا يساكنني ببلد أنا فيه, فسيره للمدائن

Al-Mugheerah from Shabak: It had reached ‘Ali that ibn al-Sawdaa(Ibn Saba) is insulting Abu Bakr and ‘Umar so he called for him asked for a sword to kill himbut he was talked out of it so he said: “He will not live with me in the same land” then he exiled him to al-Madaen.

[Source: al-Lalikaee in “Sharh I’itiqad Ahlul-Sunnah” #2379]

Hafidh ibn Hajr quotes Ali :

ولا يبلغني عن أحد يفضلني عليهما إلا جلدته حد المفتري

“I will lash anyone who prefers me over Abu Bakr and Omar, the lashing of a slanderer (liar/spreading lies).”

[Lisan al-Mizan, Vol. III P. 290]

Hafidh ibn Katheer in “Bidaya wal Nihaya” vol 7, chapter “شيء من فضائل أمير المؤمنين علي بن أبي طالب” wrote:

وقد ثبت عنه بالتواتر أنه قال على منبر الكوفة: أيها الناس! إن خير هذه الأمة بعد نبيها أبو بكر ثم عمر، ولو شئت أن أسمي الثالث لسميت

“And it’s proven from him [Ali] in “tawatur” form, that He said on the pulpit in Kufa: “O people! The best one in this Ummah after her Prophet is Abu Bakr , then Omar , and if I wanted to say you the third name, I would do that.”

جاء في ( طوق الحمامة ) ليحيى بن حمزة الزبيدي عن سويد بن غفلة الجعفي الكوفي المتوفى عام (80هـ/699م) أنه دخل على علي-رضي الله عنه- في إمارته، فقال: إني مررت بنفر يذكرون أبا بكر و عمر بسوء، ويروون أنك تضمر لهما مثل ذلك، منهم عبد الله بن سبأ، فقال علي: مالي ولهذا الخبيث الأسود، ثم قال : معاذ الله أن أضمر لهما إلا الحسن الجميل، ثم أرسل إلى ابن سبأ فسيره إلى المدائن، ونهض إلى المنبر، حتى اجتمع الناس أثنى عليهما خيرا، ثم قال : إذا بلغني عن أحد أنه يفضلني عليهما جلدته حد المفتري -

الهي ظهير، إحسان، السنة والشيعة، نشر إدارة ترجمة السنة- الهور.

In ‘Tuq Al-Hamamh’ by Yahya bin Hamzah Al-Zobaydi on the authority of bin Ghaflah Al-Jo’fi Al-Kufi (80H) who said that he entered upon Ali – may Allah be pleased with him and said: ‘I passed by some men. among them was Abdallah Ibn Saba’, who were talking negatively about Abu Bakr and Omar saying that you [Ali] hold the same feelings towards them.’ Ali replied: ‘What does this wretched black man (Ibn Saba’s mother was Ethiopian) want from me?’ He then said: “I seek refuge in Allah in holding anything but beautiful respect for them both.” Then he sent after Ibn Saba and exiled him to Al-Mada’in (former capital of the Persian empire) and ascended the pulpit until the people were gathered, he then praised Abu Bakr and Omar, then he said: ‘If it reaches me that anyone prefers me over them then I shall lash them as they do with the slandering liar

From Abdullaah bin Salmah who said I heard Ali saying:

‘The best of the people after the Messenger of Allaah is Abu Bakr, and the best of the people after Abu Bakr is Umar . . . . .’

[Collected by Ibn Majah in his Sunan & authenticated by Albaani no. 86]

From Abu Juhayfah who said: ‘I heard Ali saying: ‘Shall I not inform you who is the best of this Ummah after its Prophet, it is Abu Bakr.’ Then Ali continued: ‘Shall I not inform you who is the best of this Ummah after Abu Bakr it is Umar.’

[Collected by Ahmad & authenticated by Ahmad Shakir. Imam Dhahabi said in ‘Tareekh al-Khulafah’ p.115: ‘I swear by Allaah the Magnificent, that this is what Ali said and it is Mutawatir from him, because he said this while on the Mimbar in Koofah, may Allaah fight the Rafidaah, how ignorant they are!’]

From Shaqeeq who said:

‘It was said to Ali -Radi Allaahu anhu: ‘Will you not appoint a leader?’ He replied: ‘The Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- did not appoint a leader, so how can I appoint one. If Allaah – Tabaraka wa Ta’ala – wants good for the people then He gathers them as He gathered them after their Prophet upon the best of them.’ [i.e. Abu Bakr]

[Collected by Ibn Abi Aassim in ‘as-Sunnah’ 1221]

CRITICISM OF THE SALAAF AGAINST THE RAWAFIDH



First of All, we have numerous fataawas of scholars both from salaaf and khalaaf very sternly denouncing those who abuse or harm the sahaabas. you can read all these fataawas of our Imaams along with some other points from Qur'an and ahadeeth enlisting the superiority of Sahaabas here : http://the-finalrevelation.blogspot.in/2012/12/some-virtues-of-sahaabas-companions-of.html



وقال محمد بن سعيد الأصبهاني : ( سمعت شريكًا يقول : احمل العلم عن كل من ( لقيت إلا الرافضة ، فإﻧﻬم يضعون الحديث
ويتخذونه دينًا

“And Muhammad bin Sa’eed al-Asbahaanee said: “I heard Shareek (Bin Abdillaah,
Qaadhee of Koofaa) saying:

“Take knowledge from whoever you meet except the Raafidhah, for they fabricate hadeeth and take it as religion.”

وقال أبو زرعة الرازي : إذا رأيت الرجل ينقص أحدًا من أصحاب رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فاعلم أنه زنديق

And Aboo Zur’ah ar-Raazee said:

“If you find a man insulting any one of the Companions of the Messenger of Allaah صلى لله عليه وسلم) ) then know that he is a Heretic (Zindeeq).”

Allaah says in Surah Fath:

مُّحَمَّدٌ رَّسُو ُ ل اللَّهِ وَالَّذِينَ مَعَهُ َأشِدَّاء عََلى الْ ُ كفَّا ِ ر رُحَمَاء بَيْنَهُمْ تَرَاهُمْ رُكَّعًا سُجَّدًا يَبْتَغُو َ ن َفضًْلا مِّنَ اللَّهِ وَ ِ رضْوَانًا سِيمَاهُمْ فِي وُجُوهِهِم مِّنْ َأَثِر السُّجُودِ َذلِكَ مََثلُهُمْ فِي التَّوْرَاةِ وَمََثلُهُمْ فِي الْإِنجِي ِ ل َ كزَرْ ٍ ع َأخْرَجَ شَطَْأهُ فَآزَرَهُ فَاسْتَغَْل َ ظ َفاسْتَوَى عََلى سُوقِهِ يُعْ ِ جبُ الزُّرَّاعَ لِيَغِي َ ظ ِب ِ همُ الْ ُ كفَّارَ وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ مِنْهُم مَّغْفِرًَة وََأجْرًا عَظِيمًا

“Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are severe against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and falling down prostrate (in prayer), seeking Bounty from Allah and (His) Good Pleasure. The mark of  them (i.e. of their Faith) is on their faces (foreheads) from the traces of (their) prostration (during prayers). This is their description in the Taurat (Torah). But their description in the Injeel (Gospel) is like a (sown) seed which sends forth its shoot, then makes it strong, it then becomes thick, and it stands straight on its stem, delighting the sowers that He may enrage the disbelievers with them. Allah has promised those among them who believe (i.e. all those who follow Islamic Monotheism, the religion of Prophet Muhammad till the Day of Resurrection) and do righteous good deeds, forgiveness and a mighty reward (i.e. Paradise).” [Al-Fath: 29]

Ibn Katheer said in his Tafseer (4/219):

ومن هذه الآية انتزع الإمام مالك رحمة الله عليه في رواية عنه بتكفير الروافض الذين يبغضون الصحابة رضي الله عنهم قال : لأﻧﻬم يغيظوﻧﻬم ومن غاظ الصحابة رضي الله عنهم فهو كافر لهذه الآية ووافقه طائفة من العلماء رضي الله عنهم على ذلك

“And in this verse Imaam Maalik ( رحمه لله ) used as evidence for the Takfeer of the Rawaafidh, those who are enraged with the Sahaabah ( رضي لله عنھم ). He said: “That is because they become enraged with them and whoever is enraged with the Sahaabah رضي لله عنھم then he is a Kaafir (disbeliever) due to this verse” and a group of the Ulemaa (scholars), may Allaah be pleased with them (the Sahaabah رضي لله عنھم ), agreed with him on that.”


Imaam al-Qurtubee said in his Tafseer (16/297):

لقد أحسن مالك في مقالته وأصاب في تأويله فمن نقص واحدًا منهم أو طعن عليه في روايته فقد رد على الله رب العالمين وأبطل
شرائع المسلمين

“Maalik has done good in his statement and is correct in his interpretation, for anyone who lowers one of them or insults them in his narration them he has gone against Allaah, the Lord of All the Worlds, and falsified the legislation of the Muslims.”

And it is mentioned in As-Saarim al-Maslool of Shaykhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah:

و قال مالك رضي الله عنه، إنما هؤلاء أقوام أرادو القدح في النبي عليه الصلاة والسلام، فلم يمكنهم ذلك، فقدحوا في الصحابة حتى يقال؛ رجل سوء، ولو كان رجلا صالحًا لكان أصحابه صالحين

“And Maalik, may Allaah be pleased with him, said: “This group of people wanted to revile the Prophet عليه الصلاة والسلام but it was not possible for them, so they reviled the Companions until it was said about them: And evil man, even if he was a righteous man, however his companions are righteous.”

And Shaykhul Islaam ibn Taymiyyah also said:

من شتم النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ُقتل، ومن سب أصحابه أدب

“Whoever insults the Prophet صلى لله عليه وسلم should be killed, and whoever insults his Companions should be punished.”

And ‘Abdul-Maalik bin Habeeb said:

من غلا من الشيعة في بغض عثمان والبراءة منه ُأدب أدبا شديدا، ومن زاد إلى بغض أبي بكر وعمر فالعقوبة عليه أشد، ويكرر 
ضربه، ويطال سجنه، حتى يموت

“Whoever goes to extremes from the Shee’ah in hating ‘Uthmaan and freeing himself from him then he should be punished with a severe punishment, and if he increases to hating Abee Bakr and ‘Umar then his punishment is harsher, and he should be beaten
and his imprisonment increased until he dies.”


And al-Qaadhee ‘Iyyaadh mentioned in his al-Madaarik:

دخل هارون الرشيد المسجد، فركع ثم أتى قبر النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ثم أتى مجلس مالك فقال؛ السلام عليك ورحمة الله وبركاته، فقال مالك وعليك السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته، ثم قال لمالك هل لمن سب أصحاب النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم
في الفيء حق ؟، قال؛ لا ولا كرامة، قال؛ من أين قلت ذلك، قال؛ قال الله؛ (ليغيظ ﺑﻬم الكفار) ، فمن عاﺑﻬم فهو كافر، ولا حق للكافر في الفيء، وأحتج مرة أخرى، بقوله تعالى؛ (للفقراء المهاجرين) ، قال؛ فهم أصحاب رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم الذين هاجروا معه، وأنصاره الذين جاؤوا من بعده يقولون؛ (ربنا اغفر لنا ولإخواننا الذين سبقونا بالإيمان ولا تجعل في قلوبنا غلا للذين أمنوا ربنا أنك رؤوف رحيم)، فما عدا هؤلاء فلا حق لهم فيه

“Haaroon ar-Rasheed had entered the Masjid and he sat down then he went to the grave of the Prophet صلى لله عليه وسلم and then he went to the sitting of Maalik and said: As-Salaamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatu. And Maalik said: Wa alaikum as Salaam wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatu. Then he said to Maalik: “Is there any right for gain for the one who insults the companions of the Prophet ”?صلى لله عليه وسلم He (Maalik ) said: “No, and no honor”. He said: “And from where do you say that?” He said: “Allaah says: ‘So that the disbelievers may become enraged with them’ so whoever thinks bad of them then he is a Kaafir (disbeliever) and there is no right for the disbeliever in the gains.” And he used  again as a proof: “For the Fuqaraa and the Muhaajiroon…”, he said: “For they are the Companions of the Messenger of Allaah صلى لله عليه وسلم , those who migrated with him, and aided him and those who come after them say: ‘O our Lord forgive us and those who preceded us in Faith and do not make in our hearts spite for those who believe, O our Lord verily you are the Most Merciful’ so whoever insults one of them then there is no right for them in it.”

Ibn Hazm reported,

أن هشام بن عمار سمع الإمام مالك يفتي بجلد من يسب أبو بكر و بقتل من يسب أم المؤمنين عائشة فسئله عن سبب قتل ساب عائشة رضي الله عنها فقال لأن الله ﻧﻬانا عن ذلك ﻧﻬيًا شديدًا في سورة النور اللآية 17 و حذرنا ألا نفعل ذلك أبدأ

That Hishaam bin ‘Ammaar heard Imaam Maalik issuing a ruling of punishment of lashing for the one who insults Aboo Bakr and the punishment of killing for the one who insults the Mother of the Believers, Aa’ishah. So he was asked about the reason of the killing of the one whom insults ‘Aa’ishah رضي لله عنھا so he said:
“Because Allaah prohibited that with a strong prohibition in Surah an-Noor, verse 17
and warned us never to do that.”


Imaam Aboo Haneefah said when the Shee’ah was mentioned to him:

من شك في كفر هؤلاء، فهو كافر مثلهم

“Whoever doubts in their disbelief then he is a disbeliever like them.”

Imaam Aboo Bakr al-Khallaal mentioned in his Sunnah (2/557) from Abee Bakr al-
Maaroodhee who reported that Maalik bin Anas said:

الذي يشتم أصحاب النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ليس لهم سهم أو قال نصيب في الإسلام

“The one who reviles the Companions of the Prophet ( صلى لله عليه وسلم ) does not
have any share or portion in Islaam.”


Al-Khallaal also reported (2/557 – 558) that Imaam Ahmad said:

من شتم أخاف عليه الكفر مثل الروافض

“The one who reviles the Companions, I fear for him disbelieve like that of the Rawaafidh.”

Imaam as-Sam’aanee said in his Al-Insaab 6/341,

واجتمعت الأمة على تكفير الإمامية لأﻧﻬم يعتقدون تضليل الصحابة وينكرون إجماعهم وينسبوﻧﻬم إلى ما لا يليق ﺑﻬم

“And the Ummah has consensus on the takfeer of the Imaamiyyah (raafidah), because they believe that the Sahaabah deviated and they denounce their consensus and ascribe to them that which is not affirmed of them.”

Imaam al-Bukhaaree said in his Khalq Af’aal al-’Ibaad 125,

ما أبالي صليت خلف الجهمي والرافضي ، أم صليت خلف اليهود والنصارى ولا يسلم عليهم ولا يعادون ولا يناكحون ولا يشهدون
ولا تؤكل ذبائحهم

“I do not give any consideration to prayer behind the Jahmee and the Raafidhee, nor
praying behind a Jew or Christian. Do not greet them (i.e. the Jahmee and the  Raafidhee), do not visit them, do not marry them, do not accept their testimony, nor eat their sacrificed.”


Shaykhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah reported in his as-Saarim al-Maslool on page 570 that
Ahmad bin Yoonus said:

لو أن يهوديًا ذبح شاة ، وذبح رافضي لأكلت ذبيحة اليهودي ، ولم آكل ذبيحة الرافضي لأنه مرتد عن الإسلام

“If a Jew was to sacrifice a sheep and a Raafidhee was to sacrifice one, I would eat the
sacrifice of the Jew, and I will not eat the sacrifice of the Raafidhee because they are apostates from Islaam.”


Al-Bukhaaree reported in his Khalq Af’aal al-’Ibaad (125) from ibn Mahdee that he
said,

هما ملتان الجهمية والرافضية

“They are two separate religions, the Jahmiyyah and the Raafidhiyyah.”

Imaam al-Laalikaa’ee reported in his Usool al-I’tiqaad Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaa’ah:

سمعت عبد الرحمن بن مهدي وسألته عن الصلاة خلف اصحاب الأهواء قال نعم لا يصلي خلف هؤلاء الصنفين الجهمية  والروافض فإن الجهمية كفار بكتاب الله

“I heard from ‘Abdur-Rahmaan bin Mahdee and asked him about the Salaah behind
the people of desire and he said:

“Yes, do not pray behind those two groups, the Jahmiyyah and the Rawaafidh, for the
Jahmiyyah are disbelievers in the Book of Allaah.”


Ibn Battah reported in his al-Ibaanah (Number 200) that al-Marwazee said that he
asked Aboo ‘Abdillaah Ahmad bin Hanbal about the one who reviles Aboo Bakr and
‘Umar and ‘Uthmaan and ‘Aa’ishah ( رضي لله عنھم ) and he said:

مَا َأرَاهُ عََلى َاْلِإسَْلاِم

“I do not see him upon Islaam.”

Imaam Ibn Hazm al-Andalusee said in his Fisal fee Milal wan Nihal (2/213):

وأما قولهم ( يعني النصارى ) في دعوى الروافض تبديل القرآن فإن الروافض ليسوا من المسلمين ، إنما هي فرقة حدث أولها بعد  موت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم بخمس وعشرين سنة … وهي طائفة تجري مجرى اليهود والنصارى في الكذب
والكفر

“And as for their statement (meaning the Christians) in the case of the Rawaafidh and their changing of the Qur’aan, then the Rawaafidh are not from the Muslims. Indeed it is a sect which the first of them arose after the death of the Messenger of Allaah صلى لله عليه وسلم) ) by 25 years… and it is a group that went the way of the Jews and the Christians in lying and disbelief.”

Imaam ash-Shaafi’ee and other Ulemaa stated that we should not narrate from the Raafidhah Shee’ah as they are amongst the liars.

Ibn Taymiyyah reported in his Minhaaj as-Sunnah (1/59 -62):

وقال مؤمل بن إهاب سمعت يزيد بن هارون يقول يكتب عن كل صاحب بدعة إذا لم يكن داعية إلا الرافضة فإﻧﻬم يكذبون

Mu’mal Ibn Ihaab said: I heard Yazeed Bin Haaroon (d. 206H) saying, “The narrations of every person of innovation can be written as long as he is not a caller to it, except the Raafidah, since they are liars.”

Ibn Taymiyyah recorded in his Minhaaj as-Sunnah (1/69):

قال أبو حاتم الرازي سمعت يونس بن عبد الأعلى يقول قال أشهب بن عبد العزيز سئل مالك عن الرافضة فقال لا تكلمهم ولا ترو عنهم فإﻧﻬم يكذبون وقال أبو حاتم حدثنا حرملة قال سمعت الشافعي يقول لم أر أحدا أشهد بالزور من الرافضة

“Aboo Haatim ar-Raazee (d.277H) said,

“I heard Yoonus bin ‘Abd al-A’laa saying: Ashhaab bin ‘Abdul’Azeez asked Maalik (d.179H) about the Raafidah, so he said, “Do not speak to them and do not narrate from them, since they lie. 

And Aboo Haatim said,

“Harmalah related to us saying: I heard ash-Shaafi’ee (d.204H) saying, "I have not seen anyone testifying for more evil than the Raafidah.”

Imaam Ibn Battah mentioned in his al-Ibaanah (Number 193) that Aboo Bakr bin
‘Ayyaash said:

َلا أُصَلِّي عََلى رَافِضِيٍّ وََلا حَرُو ِ ر ٍّ ي لِأَنَّ َالرَّافِضِيَّ يَجْعَلُ عُمَرَ َ كافِرًا وَاْلحَرُو ِ ريَّ يَجْعَلُ عَلِيًّا َ كافِرًا

“I will not pray over the Raafidhee or the Harooree, because the Raafidhee makes ‘Umar a kaafir (disbeliever) and the Harooree makes ‘Alee a Kaafir.” 

Shaykhul Islaam ibn Taymiyyah said in his Majmoo’ al-Fataawa (28/ 482) about the
Rawaafidh:

أﻧﻬم شر من عامة أهل الأهواء ، وأحق بالقتال من الخوارج

“They are an evil from the general people of desires, and they are more deserving of being killed than the Khawaarij.”

Al-Khallaal reported in his Sunnah (2/566) that Moosaa bin Haaroon bin Ziyaad said:

قال سمعت الفريابي ورجل يسأله عمن شتم أبا بكر قال كافر قال فيصلي عليه قال لا وسألته كيف يصنع به وهو يقول لا إله إلا  الله قال لا تمسوه بأيديكم ارفعوه بالخشب حتى تواروه في حفرته

“I heard al-Faryaabee and a man asked him about the one who reviles Abaa Bakr and
he said “A disbeliever”, he said, “So is he to be prayed over?” He said, “No” And I
asked him, “How is he to be dealt with when he says ‘Laa Illaaha Illa Allaah’?” He
replied, “Do not touch him with your hands. Raise him upon a plank of wood so you
can slide him into his pit.”

The Jews & Christians are better then the Rawaafidh by one characteristic and that is…..

It was said to the Jews:
Who are the best in your religion?
They said, ‘the companions of Mûsa (Moses) alayhissalām.

It was said to the Christians:
Who are the best in your religion?
They said, ‘the companions of Eesaa (Jesus) alayhissalām.

It was said to the Raafidhah:
Who are the worst people in your religion?
They said, ‘the companions of Muhammed sallAllāhu alayhi wa sallam’, excluding but a few.’

Amongst the ones they insulted are those many times better than those they included.

(Ibn Abil-’Izz Ibn Abdis-Salaam, Sharh at-Tahaawiyyah, quoted by ash-Shaykh Abdul-Muhsin Al-Abbaad in ‘From the sayings of the trustworthy scholars regarding the Companion, the Khaleefah Mu’aawiyyah Ibn Abee Safwan radi’Allāhu anhu’)

THOSE SHIAS WHO REVILE AND ACCUSE AISHA (r.a) ARE KAAFIRS BECAUSE :

the scholars of Islam are all agreed that whoever condemns ‘Aa’ishah for that of which Allaah has stated she is innocent is a kaafir, because he has rejected Allaah’s statement of her innocence in Soorat al-Noor.

Imam Ibn Hazm quoted a report with an isnad going back to Hishaam ibn ‘Ammaar, who said: "I heard Maalik ibn Anas say: ‘Whoever curses Abu Bakr should be whipped, and whoever curses ‘Aa’ishah should be killed.’ He was asked, ‘Why do you say that concerning (the one who curses) ‘Aa’ishah?’ He said, ‘Because Allaah says concerning ‘Aa’ishah, may Allah be pleased with her (interpretation of the meaning): "Allaah forbids you from it [slander] and warns you not to repeat the like of it forever, if you are believers." [al-Noor 24:17]’"

Imaam Maalik said
: "Whoever accuses her goes against the Qur’aan, and whoever goes against the Qur’aan should be killed"

Ibn Hazm said: "This comment of Maalik’s is correct, and it is complete apostasy to reject Allaah’s words that clearly state her innocence."

Abu Bakr ibn al-‘Arabi said: "Because the people who slandered ‘Aa’ishah accused a pure and innocent person of immorality, then Allah exonerated her. So everyone who accuses her of that of which Allah has stated she is innocent is rejecting what Allah says, and everyone who rejects what Allah says is a kaafir. This is the opinion of Maalik, and the matter is very clear to those who have insight."

Al-Qaadi Abu Ya‘laa said: "Whoever slanders ‘Aa’ishah by accusing her of that of which Allah stated her innocence is a kaafir, without doubt. More than one imam stated this ijmaa‘ (consensus) and gave this ruling."

Ibn Abi Moosaa said: "Whoever accuses ‘Aa’ishah, may Allah be pleased with her, of that of which Allaah stated she was innocent has left the religion (is no longer a Muslim) and has no right to marry a Muslim woman."

Ibn Qudaamah said: "It is a part of the Sunnah to say ‘May Allah be pleased with her’ after mentioning the wives of the Prophet (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him), Mothers of the Believers who are pure and innocent of any evil. The best of them are Khadeejah bint Khuwaylid and ‘Aa’ishah al-Siddeeqah bint al-Siddeeq, whose innocence was stated by Allah; (they are) the wives of the Prophet (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him) in this world and the next. Whoever accuses her of that of which Allah has stated her innocence has rejected the words of Allaah All-Mighty."

Imam al-Nawawi, may Allaah have mercy on him, said: "‘Aa’ishah’s innocence of that of which she was accused is stated definitively in the Qur’aan. If anyone doubts that (may Allah protect us from such a thing), he becomes a kaafir and an apostate, by the consensus of the Muslims."

Ibn al-Qayyim, may Allaah have mercy on him, said: "The ummah is agreed that whoever slanders her is a kaafir."

Al-Haafiz ibn Katheer said, in his Tafseer: " The scholars, may Allah have mercy on them, all agreed that whoever accuses or slanders her after the revelation of this aayah is a kaafir, because he has rejected the Qur’aan."

Badr al-Deen al-Zirkashi said: "Whoever slanders her is a kaafir, because the Qur’aan clearly states her innocence

Al-Haafiz ibn Katheer, may Allah have mercy on him, said: "I.e., Allah would not have made ‘Aa’ishah the wife of the Messenger of Allah (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him) if she had not been good, because he is better than any good person. If she had been bad, she would not have been fit to marry him from a shar‘i point of view, and Allah would never even have decreed it.."

Finally, let us remember that the most beloved of all people to him (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him) was ‘Aa’ishah al-Siddeeqah bint al-Siddeeq, as is proven in the report of ‘Amr ibn al-‘Aas, who said: "The Messenger of Allaah (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him) put me in charge of an army during the ghazwah (campaign) of al-Salaasil. I came to him and asked him, ‘O Messenger of Allaah, who among the people is most beloved to you?’ He said, ‘Aa’ishah.’ I asked, ‘Who among men?’ He said, ‘Her father.’ I asked, ‘Then who?’ He said, ‘‘Umar,’ then he mentioned a number of others."

So whoever feels hatred towards the beloved of the Messenger of Allaah (Peace & Blessings of Allaah be upon Him) will deserved to be despised by him on the Day of Resurrection. And Allaah knows best.

OTHER FATAAWA FROM THE SALAF ABOUT THE SHI`A 


قال الإمام الشعبي:(( لو كانت الشيعة من البهائم لكانوا حمرا ولو كانت من الطير لكانوا رخما )) (منهاج السنة)


Imam al Shabee said: If the Shiah were from animals they would have been donkeys and if they were from birds they would have been vultures
