‎The Resolute Stance of the Salaf on the Sheer Evil of the Rāfiḍah

Munīb al-Ṣumālī

Exposing the evil actions of the Rāfiḍah and their position as open opposers to the sunnah.

Due to the longstanding political alignment between The Muslim Brotherhood and the Rāfiḍah Shiʿah of Irān, dating back to the mid 20th century, when Sayyid Sayyid Quṭb outwardly praises the Iranian revolution and its figureheads, many Muslims today have become ignorant of the evil realities of the shīʿah doctrines. With increasingly less focus on the Islamic ʿaqīdah and its principles, the average Muslim is simply unaware of the shirk and vile attacks on the Prophet’s companions contained in the Rāfiḍī beliefs, simply seeing them as an ally of Islām. This could not be further from the truth. They are open enemies to the People of Sunnah and intend no good will towards the Muslim world. In fact, they are from the most eager people to destabilise it, and will cooperate with any forces that see its up-ending and turmoil. It is abhorrent to observe some Muslims state: “raḥimahullāh” upon the death of Rāfiḍī figureheads. Reflect upon the statements of the Salaf regarding them:

‎The Messenger of Allāh (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: ‎“The people, the land, the trees and the animals are relieved of the immoral servant” (al-Nasā’ī, 1930)

‎Al-Khaṭīb al-Baghdādī mentioned in the biography of ‘Ubaydillah b. ʿAbdullāh b. al-Husayn, Abū al-Qāsim, known as Ibn al-Naqīb:‎I recorded him (Ibn al-Naqīb), his narrations were sound. He was very serious about the Sunnah. It reached me that he sat in a congratulatory sitting when Ibn Muʿallim, the shaykh of the Rāfiḍah, died.

‎He said: I don’t care when I die now that I have witnessed the death of Ibn Muʿallim.
(Tarīkh Baghdād, 10/382)

‎Imām al-Dhahabī mentions in the biography of Sibt b. al-Jawzī (who became Rafiḍī):

‎Shaykh Muhyī al-Dīn al-Susī said: When my grandfather heard about the death of Sibt b. al-Jawzī he responded, “May Allāh not have mercy upon him, he was a Rafiḍī” (Mizān al-ʿItdāl, 7/304)

‎We say likewise, may Allāh not have mercy upon the Rafiḍah who pass away.
