Muslim Shī’ah Relations

As Muslims, we need to:

  1. Understand that Shī’asm is kufr.
  2. Understand that Shī’ahs who know their religion cannot be considered
  3. Shun them completely & cut off all ties with them if such ties exist.
  4. Keep our families and dear ones far from them and their influence.
  5. Maintain hatred in our hearts for their beliefs and actions.
  6. Confine ourselves to the writings and lectures of reliable, upright and
    pious Ulamā instead of exposing ourselves to content online.
  7. Be wary and shun anyone who “sings the tunes” of Shī’asm, Sunnī-Shī’ī
    unity and similar issues. This does not require one to be trigger-happy in
    declaring people “Shī’ah” or “pro-Shī’ah”. It merely means that one
    should always be alert, vigilant and cautious, especially when dubious
    statements are made.


On the 1st December 2017, in Cape Town, a non-Muslim Shiah temple complex is set to open. Normally, there is no need for Muslims to comment on non-Muslim events whether of a religious or mundane nature, unless it directly affects Muslims. The same rule would have applied to the non-Muslim Shiah temple complex if it was not for the confusion which the deceptive and cunning Shiahs create by their employment of such terminology and designations which cause confusion in the ranks of the ignorant Muslim masses.

The non-Muslim Shiah event is advertised as a ‘Mosque Complex’ and the temple is named ‘Ahlul Bait Mosque’. The lengthy list of non-Muslim dignitaries who will be attending the opening ceremony of the Shiah temple complex, and the variety of haraam merrymaking activities palpably confirm that the Shiah temple complex is a non-Muslim venture which is being manipulated to confuse unwary and ignorant Muslims for entrapping them into the web of the Shiah religion which has no affinity and no relationship with Islam.

Although the Shiahs name their temple, ‘Ahlul Bait Mosque’, they are the very people who had killed Hadhrat Husain (Radhiyallahu anhu), the grandson of Rasulullah. The Shiahs had at Karbala massacred the entire Family of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam), yet they have the naked and shameless audacity of professing ‘love’ for the Ahl-e-Bait (the Family of Rasulullah – Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).

In fact, even among the Shiah clergy there are those who have recorded Hadhrat Husain’s curses on the Shiahs. In the Shiah book of theology, Al-Irshaad lil Mufeedah, the following appears on page 241:

“Imaam Husain (alayhis salaam) said in his curse on his Shiah (‘supporters’ who had lured him with his family to Iraq): ‘O Allah! If You condone them for a while, then split them into sects and schisms. Never ever let the rulers be pleased with them. Verily, they (the Shiahs of Iraq) had called us to help us, then they became our enemies and killed us.”

In the Shiah book, Al-Ihtijaaj, Vol.2, page 24, among the curses of Hadhrat Husain (Radhiyallahu anhu) on the Shiahs, is mentioned:

“You are among those who have abandoned us and killed us. Destruction for you! The La’nat (Curse) of Allah is on the zaalimeen.”

In the Shiah book, A’yaanus Shiah, page 34, is mentioned:

“These are the nusoos (explicit statements recorded in Shiah texts) which categorically reveal to us who the real killers of Husain are. Verily, they are his Shiah from the people of Kufa. i.e. our forefathers. So why do we load the issue of the killing of Husain (alayhis salaam) on to the Ahlus Sunnah?”

“For this very reason As-Sayyid Muhsinul Ameen: ‘From the people of Iraq, 20,000 pledged allegiance to Husain, then they betrayed him. They rebelled against him whilst their pledge was on their necks, and they killed him.”

In Al-Ihtijaaj, page 32 (this is a Shiah book), the following is narrated:

“Al-Imaam Zainul Aaabideen (the son of Hadhrat Husain –Radhiyallahu anhu – who had survived the Shiah massacre at Karbala) said: ‘Do you know that you had written to my father, and that you had deceived him, and that you had given to him your pledge of allegiance. Then you fought him and abandoned him? With which eyes will you be able to look at Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) whilst he will be saying: ‘You murdered my family, and you pillaged my honour. You are not from my Ummah.’? Verily, these people (the Shiahs) wail for us. Who other than them had killed us?”

Faatimah As-Sughra. The granddaughter of Hadrat Husain (Radhiyallahu anhu), addressing the Shiahs, the so-called lovers of Ahl-e-Bait, said:

“O you traitors, deceivers and frauds! We are the Ahl-Bait. Allah Ta’ala has cast us into a trial with you, and He has cast you into a trial with us. Then He made our trial beautiful. Then you rejected us and you falsified us. You regarded our being killed as permissible, and our wealth as booty just as you had yesterday killed our grandfather (Hadhrat Husain). Your swords are dripping with the blood of the Ahl-e-Bait. Destruction for you! Await the La’nat (Allah’s Curse) and the Athaab.”

These are a few random excerpts from the Shiah books which acknowledge that the murderers of Ahl-e-Bait were the Shiahs. But with naked audacity and shamelessness they call their temple, ‘Ahlul Bait Mosque’.

Whilst not a single Ulama body, not even the ulama-e-soo’, will attend the non-Muslim Shiah opening ceremony, some murtaddeen and zanaadiqah masquerading as Muslims will be participating in the Shiah event. The ‘loud thikr’ and other Islamically-sounding features of the Shiah ceremony are designed for confusing the unwary and the ignorant among the Muslim community. It is imperative for Muslims to beware of this sinister Shiah trap. Kufr is being presented as Islam. The traitors who had killed the Ahl-e-Bait are parading as ‘lovers’ of Ahl-e-Bait.

Those who profess to be Muslims but sympathize with the Shiahs are among the munaafiqeen. Among these munaafiqeen are the tabloids, Al-Qalam and Muslim News. Radio 786 is another hidden Shiah protagonist.

Sheikh Talib Ihsan, the president of Bogus ‘uucsa’ is also a hidden Shiah supporter belonging to the clique of munafiqeen, and so is Molvi Abdul Khalek Ali, the leader of the kufr interfaith movement in Western Cape. Beware of all these munaafiqs who are out to rob Muslims of their Imaan.

While the Reverend Abraham Bham of the NNB jamiat of Fordsburg is not advertised as a participant of the Shiah ceremony, he is nevertheless among the munaafiqqen. Beware of him. He participated in the kufr national prayer day together with the agents of Kufr. Him being a clandestine Shiah supporter should not be discounted.

All of these professed ‘muslims’ and also the silent Molvis should ask themselves: How shall we face Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) on the Day of Qiyaamah with our support for and silent condonation of the Shiahs – the Shiahs who have murdered and pillaged the Ahl-e-Bait – the Shiahs who slander Hadhrat Aishah (Radhiyallahu anha) accusing her of adultery – the Shiahs who revile in the vilest terms of abuse the Sahaabah – the Shiah who believe that the Qur’aan we have is a fabrication of the Sahaabah?

The enemies of Islam have united in sinister alliance to strangle Islam and the tiny group devoted to the Sunnah. The satanic interfaith movement, the Shiahs, the MJC, the NNB jamiat, Bogus ‘uucsa’, SANHA, outfits such as Radio Shaitaan, Radio Ansaarish Shaitaan, Radio 786, Muslim News, Al-Qalam. The Saudi regime, the Iranian regime, U.S.A. with its evil coalition, India, China and many other dark satanic forces are all in a Shaitaani Alliance tightening the noose around the Neck of Islam and its tiny band of Standard Bearers.

Whilst this vile Shaitaani Alliance plots and conspires, Allah Ta’ala too Plots. And, the Qur’aan Majeed states:

“They plot and Allah too Plots. And Allah is the Best of Plotters.”


9 Rabiyul Awwal 1439 – 28 November 2017




A Haafiz recently eloped with a girl with whom he was conducting an illicit/zina relationship for about two years. They forged the haraam relationship at school. There is no gainsaying in the fact that they had indulged in zina multiple times.

They further regularly exchanged lurid, pornographic whatsapp messages of filth and zina. The wording used by the haafiz is absolutely appalling, disgusting and nauseous. This obscenity and zina continued for about two years. The parents of the boy and girl were fully aware of the zina relationship, but did nothing or could do nothing to terminate the relationship.

Ultimately, when the two were drowning in their cesspool of fornication and porn, they realized that the filth had to end, and the only way was for them to get married. However, the parents of the girl were dead against marriage. The zina relationship was tolerable, but not the Nikah solution.

When the girl’s parents resolutely refused to allow Nikah, the boy and girl eloped and had their Nikah performed privately by a Maulana. Was the Nikah valid without the consent of the father?

The girl’s father is now accusing the Maulana who had performed the Nikah of ruining the life of his daughter. The father and the family of the girl want the Nikah to be annulled. Are their valid grounds for annulling this Nikah? Did the Maulana act correctly by having performed the Nikah despite being aware of the opposition of the parents? Please comment on this issue in the light of the Shariah. There are many similar cases. Haraam zina relationships are struck up in schools and universities. Parents almost always turn a blind eye on these relationships. In the interests of secular education, parents quietly accept the zina relationship to continue. But when the couple seeks to terminate the Haraam relationship with Nikah, all hell breaks loose and the parents of the girl will be up in arms, leaving no stone unturned in the endeavor to prevent the Nikah.

What is the verdict of the Shariah for the participants in this type of saga?


The primary rascals and swines in these kinds of zina relationships are the parents. The actual fornicators are secondary in line of damnation. The parents had paved the way of Jahannam for their children by casting them into these ‘educational’ brothels. They should now not bite their fingers and lament when their children have sunk deep into Hell with their zina addiction.

These parents, if they still have any semblance of Imaan, should understand that every act of zina – the zina of the eyes, zina of the ears, zina of the tongue, zina of the hands, zina of the mind, zina of the heart, and the ultimate physical act of fornication – is loaded on to them. Since they had prepared the groundwork for zina for their children, and furthermore, aided and abetted them in the perpetration of innumerable acts of zina over an extended period of years by virtue of their condonation and abstention from instituting drastic measure to terminate the haraam relationship, they will be held fully liable in the Hereafter for the deluge of sin and immorality of their children.

These miserable unfortunate parents, born to be bad, had sent their children to be educated in the school brothel for years. The chimera of secular education dangling in front of them overwhelmed their brains which are denuded of Imaan, and had constrained them to set aside the demands of Imaan and the commands of the Shariah. Thus, they gave preference to secular-kufr education over the imperative requisite of guarding the Imaan and Akhlaaq of their children.

Since kufr education had a greater appeal for the parents than the objectives of Imaan and the Shariah, the two-year period of zina of their children was tolerable and acceptable. But when the boy and girl were sick and felt rotten on account of their zina diseases and desired to submit to the remedy and solution, that is perform Nikah, the satanic parents of the girl, dancing to the tune of Iblees and submitting to the dictates of the nafs, went overboard the cliff of Imaani destruction to prevent Nikah.

They cared not for the perpetuation of zina by their daughter. But they raised a hue and cry and even sought ‘Deeni’ protection in their inordinate, unintelligent and unreasonable attempt to block the performance of the Nikah which is the sacred bond which effaces the past sins if accompanied by Taubah.

Now suddenly they run to the Shariah claiming that their daughter married without parental consent. These swines should understand that they had long ago forfeited their Shar’i rights of which the Shariah had made them the repositories. But the sacred rights granted to the parents were eliminated by the fact of sending their daughter to the school of ZINA. What did they expect of their daughter whom they had cast among the wolves of zina? Did they hallucinate that their daughter will emerge from the portals of the zina hell as a waliah – a saintly lady? Indeed Iblees had urinated on the brains of these miserable parents who had converted their daughter into a vile slut.

Often the parents of the girl trapped in this type of zina situation seek to shift the blame 100% on the male culprit while both are equally culpable. The Qur’aan does not absolve any of the zina participants. In fact, the Qur’aan calls first for the punishment to be meted out to the girl, hence Allah Ta’ala says:

“The zaaniyah (the female fornicator) and the zaani (the male fornicator), flog them…”

In the case of theft, the Qur’aan Majeed says:

“The saariq (male thief) and the saariqah (female thief), cut off their hands…”

Note the difference in the Qur’aanic address and acquittal of the Divine Command. Since the female is the greater culprit due to wrecking her Imaani haya, the punishment for zina is announced firstly for her then for the male. On the other hand, in the scenario of theft, the punishment is announced first for the male then the female.

The girl’s parents should not lament and not seek to minimize the immorality and villainy of their daughter by shifting the entire blame on the boy. Both are equally liable for their zina.

All parents who find themselves in this type of situation which they had crafted with their own hands should understand the following masaa-il of the Shariah:

(1) Zina is tantamount to the destruction of Imaan while Nikah is Half of Imaan.

(2) In the scenario of zina which parents create for their children, the latter have every right to proceed with Nikah regardless of the denial of parental consent.

(3) By having dumped his daughter into the cauldron of zina, the father has LOST his Wilaayat over her. As such, she may proceed to have her Nikah performed even if he denies consent. His consent is no longer required. It is a mere imaginary figment which if forthcoming will be a mere ceremonial measure to save a vestige of the ruined respect and honour of the parents.

(4) The girl’s father in a saga of this type loses his right of Wilaayat. Since he is a faasiq and faajir, he is not an appropriate mahram for her. A man who has the Ibleesi guts of tolerating the prolonged and multiple acts of fornication of his daughter for the sake of kufr education is classified a khinzeer. That is why he can tolerate zina, but not Nikah.

The parents of this girl are now shedding wasteful tears. They are more concerned with their image in society. If they had any concern for their daughter, never would they have allowed her to take up ‘employment’ in a brothel. Secular schools are dens of vice and immorality.

The parents of the boy too are equally guilty for the development of the zina saga in which their son has become ensnared by Iblees. It is absolutely haraam to refer to this boy with the title ‘Haafiz’. It is an insult to the Qur’aan Majeed. Never is it possible for one who indulges in prolonged and multiple acts of zina to be a Haafiz of the Qur’aan Majeed. How is it possible for a true Haafiz to send below gutter-level vulgarities and porno words of disgust to a female? The Qur’aan curses such a person who indulges in vice and immorality despite having memorized the Qur’aan. In brief, the parents, the girl and the boy in this saga are khanaazeer. Nevertheless, sincere Taubah will efface their khinzeeriyat and shaitaaniyat.


It is firstly essential to understand that pursuing worldly/mundane education in schools and universities is absolutely HARAAM. There is no scope for permissibility.

If due to misfortune and nafsaaniyat a boy and girl attending these dens of vice and shaitaaniyat at the behest of their evil parents become entrapped in an illicit relationship, they should immediately terminate it. They should fear the Blazing Fire of Jahannam. They should understand that Allah Azza Wa Jal is looking at them and the Two Recording Angels are at their side 24 hours.

If, due to their khinzeeriyat they refuse to terminate the illicit zina relationship, they should then immediately enter into the fortress of Nikah to save themselves from the Wrath and Curse of Allah Azza Wa Jal and from the disastrous consequences of zina – consequences in this dunya and in the Aakhirah.

In such a scenario if the girl’s parents refuse consent, the boy and girl should proceed to extricate themselves from the filth by performing Nikah even without the consent of the girl’s parents. They should not arrange a clandestine Nikah. Remember that zina is a secret affair while Nikah is a public institution.

If they are unable to find a responsible person to perform the Nikah, they should perform their own Nikah.

The performance of Nikah is quite simple in Islam. The validity of Nikah requires only the following factors:

(1) The Ijaab (Proposal). The Ijaab may be by either the boy or girl. The girl should say: “I accept you as my husband in Nikah.”

(2) The Qubool (Acceptance). In response to the Proposal, the boy should say: “I have accepted you as my wife in Nikah.”

(3) Two Witnesses. It is imperative to have two Muslim male witnesses to witness the utterances of Ijaab and Qubool.

Both the Ijaab and Qubool MUST be sufficiently audible for both Witnesses to hear. Once the aforementioned three ingredients have been fulfilled, the Nikah is VALID.

The validity of the Nikah is not reliant on the Khutbah and Mahr. However, for observance of the Sunnah and for barakat, any one present may recite the Khutbah prior to the Ijaab and Qubool. The Mahr should preferably be arranged prior to the Nikah. Payment may be deferred for a future date.


The couple getting married should understand that the aforementioned method of Nikah is not a temporary stratagem for legalizing their zina conduct. It is a real Nikah contract which has permanent effect. It is not a temporary halaalization of zina as is the mu’tah practice of the Shiahs. If the intention is for the nikah to be a temporary measure, it will then be tantamount to Shi’i mu’tah which is haraam, and not valid.


A Mahram for a woman is a male with whom marriage is permanently not permissible and not valid, e.g. father, son, uncle. If a mahram is a faasiq-faajir, then he will not be a valid mahram for a woman on a journey nor should she be in privacy with him. Thus, a woman may not go alone on a journey with her father or uncle if they are faasiq-faajir. Fisq and Fujoor defeat the objective of mahramiyyat.

It is the obligation to the mahram to protect the haya and honour of the female whose guardian he happens to be. This objective is not achieved if the mahram is a faasq-faajir.


Q. Can this nikah be annulled?
A. There are no grounds for annulment. The Nikah is valid.

Q. The father says that the Maulana has ruined his daughter with the Nikah. Is he correct?
A. On the contrary, this miserable, faasiq, faajir father has ruined the life of his daughter by having paved the path of Jahannam for her. He condoned all her zina practices and shenanigans.

Q. Did the Moulana act correctly within the confines of the Shariah by performing the nikah without the consent of the father?
A. The Maulana acted 100% in conformity with the Shariah. He assisted the extrication of the couple from the trap of zina which the parents had created for them.

Q. What is the verdict of the Shariah?
A. The Nikah is valid. The parents must resort to Taubah and so should the girl and boy. The father has lost his Wilaayat over his daughter.

The Shi’as & LGBTQ Crowd – ImportantAqeedah Notice!

Weekly, from the Manaabir (pulpits) throughout the world, the Imaams echo the words of our
beloved Rasoolullah (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) which are as follows:
“Fear Allah! Fear Allah, regarding my Sahaabah (Radhiyallahu anhum)!”
“He who loves them (my Sahaabah), loves them because he loves me.”
“He who hates them, hates them because he hates me.”
The Shi’as who swear and abuse the Sahaabah (Radhiyallahu anhum) cannot be and should not be
included as part of the Muslim Ummah. The supporters and sympathizers of the Shi’as should take
a good warning of the jeopardy of their Imaan in the above Ahaadith echoed from the Manaabir
on Fridays. Can any sane human befriend and ‘act good’ to anyone who swears his mother? The
Shi’as swear and abuse Ummul-Mu’mineen (the mother of the believers), Hazrat Aisha
(Radhiyallahu anha) and other Sahaabah! How can we sympathize with them?
Therefore, it is Haraam to support the Shi’as. Stay far, very far from the Shi’as. The Shi’as are
Kuffaar. Be wary of those scholars who opt to remain silent in exposing the Kufr of the Shi’as!
All the weird, alien-to-humans and inhumane activities, beliefs, doings and concept the LGBTQ
group believes in, are all rejected Islamically and are declared as major sins in Islaam. Supporting
this group, participating in their activities, wearing their coloured clothing, banners and flags are
all Haraam in terms of Deen. Anyone who believes and practices what the LGBTQ believes and
practices in, is out of the fold of Islaam.
Extreme caution should be taken regarding innocent (Muslim) school-going kids who are taught
such subjects whereby their innocent brains and hearts are brainwashed. They are taught to respect
anyone who is a gay or lesbian – Astaghfirullah! Even the animals don’t believe in this garbage!
Parents should really deeply rethink over sending their children to school where today these
subjects are taught. If parents know of a particular school having bullies that hassle students, then
no parent will readily send their kids to that school. The teaching and studying LGBTQ and all
other nonsensical Haraam subjects are subjects which are hassling, harassing, robbing and
murdering the Imaan and Hayaa’ of our kids. What future Ummah do we expect to have?
How can parents still comfortably send their sons – and even worse, their daughters – to schools?
It is sad to note how modern/secular-scholars of Deen encourage godless secular education which
promotes such filthy education. This is ridiculous and a sign of them being part of the Ulama-eBaatil!


Imaam Maalik (rahmatullah alayh) was asked about those who insult the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu anhu), so he said: “Those who do so are people who intended to criticise Nabi (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) himself, but they are not able to do so, so instead they criticise his As’haab (Companions, (radhiyallahu anhum).” [As-Saarimul Maslool] Imaam Maalik (rahmatullah alayh) said that Allaah Azza wa Jal says in the Qur’aan Kareem: {“He (Allaah) enrages the kuffaar through them (Sahaabah-e-Kiraam radhiyallahu anhum).”} Therefore, whosoever finds fault with (the Sahaabah radhiyallahu anhum), he is a kaafir.” [Al-Itisaam] Imaam Muhammad ibn Yusuf al-Firyaabi (rahmatullah alayh) was asked about someone who insults Hadhrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu anhu), so he said: “Such a person is a kaafir.” He was asked, “Is Janaazah Salaah to be performed for him?” He said, “No.” He was asked, “What is to be done with such a person (after he dies)?” He said, “Don’t touch him with your hands. Push him into a hole in the ground using sticks.”

The Gatherings Of Speaking On The Martyrdom On The 10th Of Muharram

The Gatherings Of Speaking On The Martyrdom On The 10th Of Muharram

From Fatawa Rasheedia


Can one be hopeful of reward in the following issues, and are these matters innovations and sin or not:

To consider the day of martyrdom of Hadhrat Husayn (RA) to be amongst the days of Aashura, and to have lectures on the rulings of mourning and self-flagellation (self-beating- maatam), and loud weeping and having these gatherings in each home, whilst the lecturers narrate and speak on the martyrdom during these days, especially from narrations that are contradictory and weak. The listeners try to listen to it every year, such that his lecture is unique. People especially give charity for perpetual reward during these days and specific food is placed, like rose flavoured water or rice. Every rich and poor person takes it to be blessed to have from it. Whichever person does not take from it is criticised and taken to be evil. Ostentation has a great role to play in this as well.


Speaking about the martyrdom during the ten days of Muharram is forbidden because of imitating the Rawafid (Shi’a). It is Haraam to have maatam (self-flagellation) and weeping sessions. In the Hadith, we are forbidden from mourning. It is Haraam to narrate narrations that are contrary to reality, no matter which subject they pertain to. If a person feels that he will be rewarded to a greater degree by giving charity during these days, then it is a deviated innovation. It is baseless to specify certain foods on certain days. It is Makruh for a wealthy person to have food of charity and it is Haraam for a Sayyid. It is sinful to criticise a person for not participating. And Allaah (SWT) knows best.

Reading The Books Of Martyrdom During Muharram


What is the status of reading the translation of Sirr ash Shahadatayn or other books on martyrdom specifically during the nights of Muharram if the Musallis desire it, in the Masjid or in the home of someone?


It is forbidden to read Sirr ash Shahadatayn during Muharram because of imitating the gatherings of the Rawafid (Shi’a).

Establishing The Sabeel (Custom Of Stopping To Drink Water) In Muharram, Giving Milk And Rose Flavoured Water To Drink


In Muharram, on the day of Aashura, is it correct to speak about the martyrdom, with poetry in accordance to the correct narration, or even some weak narrations? Is it correct to have Sabeel (custom of stopping to drink water), or to have rose flavoured water and milk?


In Muharram, to speak of the martyrdom of Husayn (RA), even if it is in accordance to the authentic narrations, or to have Sabeel, give rose flavoured water and give people to drink, or to give milk to drink, all this is incorrect and it is Haraam because of imitating the Rawafid.

A Shia’s claim that Imamat is mentioned in the 12th verse of Surah Mai’dah

A Shia says imamat is mentioned in the Quran in surah maidah ayat 12, where Allah mentions how he appointed twelve imams from bani Israeel. And he says after every prophet 12 imams were appointed by Allah.
He Also says the reason why this reference number from Quran made by Allah , to indicate “5 panjatan” from surah 5 and “12 imams” from ayah 12.
Sir, I want you to give me some references from Quran so I can dismantle his claim, Jazak Allah

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.Surah Maa’idah has no relevance to Panjatan (5 members of the Ahlul Bayt) just because it is the 5th Surah of the Quran.The term Ahlul Bayt is clearly mentioned in the Quran in Surah Ahzaab Verse 33. Allah refers to the blessed wives of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) as Ahlul Bayt.It is incorrect to infer to Surah Maa’idah as Panjatan simbly because it is the 5th Surah of the Quran when the term, Ahlul Bayt is expressly mentioned by Allah in the Quran.In the 12th verse of Surah Maa’idah, Allah refers to the 12 leaders of the Bani Israeel. Shias believe that this verse refers to the 12 Imams in Shiasm.[1]According to the Shias, every Imam is infallible and superior to the prophets.Mullah Baqir Majlisi, the chief scholar of Safawid Iran, states in his book, “Hayatul Qulub – Vol 3 Pg 10”:رتبہ امامت برتر از نبوت است “The position of Imamat is greater than that of Nubuwah/Prophethood.” Ten of the twelve leaders of Bani Israeel were disloyal to Moosa (Alaihis Salaam). There were only 2 loyal leaders i.e. Yusha (Alaihis Salaam) and Kaalib (May Allah be pleased with him).[2] If the Shias use this verse of the 12 leaders of Bani Isra’eel to prove the 12 Imams, then this goes against their concept of the purity of the Imams, as 10 out of the 12 leaders were disloyal. The similarity leads to the 12 Imams of the Shias being disloyal. In the verse, Allah mentions that He chose 12 Naqeebs for the Bani Israeel. The work of a Naqeeb is to oversee a tribe. A Naqeeb is under the order and instruction of a prophet. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) appointed Sahabah as Naqeebs. According to the belief of the Shias the Imams are superior to prophets. A Naqeeb is lower than a prophet. A Naqeeb therefore cannot refer to an Imam of the Shias as according to them an Imam is even greater than a prophet. It is not possible to interpret the 12th verse of Surah Maa’idah as referring to the Imams of the Shias.
You may refer to the book on the belief of Shias “Ikhtilaafe Ummah Aur Siraate Mustaqeem” written by Hadhrat Moulana Yousuf Ludhyaanwi Rahimahullāh.
The English translation of the book is: “Differences of the Ummah”. And Allah Ta’āla Knows BestMohamed Ebrahim bin Ismail AbdullahStudent – Darul IftaaPietermaritzburg, KZN, South Africa Checked and Approved by,Mufti Ebrahim Desai. 24-02-1442|12-10-2020
[1]Hereunder are the names of the 12 Imams according to the Shia sect:1) Sayyidina Ali bin Abi Taalib (Radhiyallahu Anhu)2) Sayyidina Hasan (Radhiyallahu Anhu)3) Sayyidina Husain (Radhiyallahu Anhu)4) Ali “Zain al-Abideen” bin Husain (Radhiyallahu Anhu)5) Muhammad bin Ali al-Baaqir6) Ja’far bin Muhammad as-Saadiq7) Musa bin Ja’far al-Kaazhim8) Ali bin Musa al-Ridha9) Muhammad bin Ali al-Taqi al-Jawaad10) Abu al-Hasan Ali bin Muhammad al-Taqi al-Haadi11) Abu-Muhammad Hasan bin Ali al-Askari al-Alawi12) Muhammad bin Hasan al-Askari al-Qaaim “al-Muntazhar” al-Mahdi: This person is known as the “Muntazhar” or “The Awaited” by the Shia. They tend to believe he will be the Imam Mahdi discussed in the Ahadith. They also believe he is well and alive but went into hiding to protect himself from harm and also possesses the rest of the Qur’an (may Allah protect us all from saying such statements). After entering the basement of his father’s house at a young age, he never came out and he will emerge once again before qiyaamah and fill the world with justice. Some also believe that his father, Hasan al-Askari never had any children. The Shias response to this is the father was hiding the child and was born after the father’s death.We believe and bring Iman upon the Imam Mahdi mentioned in the Ahadith. However, the Imam Mahdi mentioned in the Ahadith is much different in comparison to the Imam Mahdi “al-Muntzhar” the Shias believe in. The twelfth Imam the Shias believe in is the only person we consider unreliable as he is unknown. He is also not the actual Imam Mahdi because it contradicts the statement of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam that Imam Mahdi will share the same name Muhammad and his father will also possess the same name as Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam’s father Abdullah.

الميثاق فى سورة البقرة حيث قال وإذ أخذنا ميثاقكم ورفعنا فوقكم الطور وَبَعَثْنا مِنْهُمُ اثْنَيْ عَشَرَ نَقِيباً والمراد به رئيس كل سبط يكون شاهدا ينقب عن احوال قومه ويفتش عنها ويكفل عنهم بالوفاء بما أمروا به ويأمرهم بالمعروف وينهاهم عن المنكر على حسب امر نبيهم ونهيه روح البيان (2/ 361)وَلَقَدْ أَخَذَ اللَّهُ مِيثاقَ بَنِي إِسْرائِيلَ اى بالله قد أخذ الله عهد طائفة اليهود والالتفات فى قوله تعالى وَبَعَثْنا مِنْهُمُ اثْنَيْ عَشَرَ نَقِيباً للجرى على سنن الكبرياء او لان البعث كان بواسطة موسى عليه السلام كما سيأتى اى شاهدا من كل سبط ينقب عن احوال قومه ويفتش عنها او كفيلا يكفل عليهم بالوفاء بما أمروا به. وقد روى ان النبي عليه السلام جعل للانصار ليلة العقبة اثنى عشر نقيبا وفائدة النقيب ان القوم إذا علموا ان عليهم نقيبا كانوا اقرب الى الاستقامة. والنقيب والعريف نظيران وقيل النقيب فوق العريف.

عن الإمام الثاني عشر، فقال فيه: ومحمد هذا هو الذي يزعمون أنه الخلف الحجة وأنه صاحب الزمان، وأنه صاحب السرداب بـ سامراء، وأنه حي لا يموت حتى يخرج فيملأ الأرض عدلاً وقسطاً، كما ملئت ظلماً وجوراً(صحيح البخاري، ج9ص81، دار طوق النجاة)حَدَّثَنِي مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ المُثَنَّى، حَدَّثَنَا غُنْدَرٌ، حَدَّثَنَا شُعْبَةُ، عَنْ عَبْدِ المَلِكِ، سَمِعْتُ جَابِرَ بْنَ سَمُرَةَ، قَالَ: سَمِعْتُ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، يَقُولُ: «يَكُونُ اثْنَا عَشَرَ أَمِيرًا» ، فَقَالَ كَلِمَةً لَمْ أَسْمَعْهَا، فَقَالَ أَبِي: إِنَّهُ قَالَ: «كُلُّهُمْ مِنْ قُرَيْشٍ» [2]أيسر التفاسير للجزائري (1/ 605)1 النقب، والنقب بفتح القاف وضمها: الطريق في الجبل. والنقيب: الأمين على القوم، وجمعه نقباء، وهو من ينقب عن أمور القوم ومصالحهم ليرعاها لهم. وقالوا النقيب أكبر من العريف، وفي البخاري: “ارجعوا حتى يرفع إلينا عرفائكم أمركم”.2 التعزير: التعظيم. والتوقير والنصرة والدفاع عن المعزر. والتعزير في الشرع: الضرب دون الحد لرد المخالف إلى الحق وسبيل الرشاد.3 من بين النقباء الاثنى عشر: يوشع، وكالب، وهما رجلان صالحان، والباقون هلكوا فلا خير فيهم. البحر المديد في تفسير القرآن المجيد (2/ 17)يقول الحق جلّ جلاله: وَلَقَدْ أَخَذَ اللَّهُ مِيثاقَ بَنِي إِسْرائِيلَ على أن يجاهدوا مع موسى- عليه السلام- وينصروه، ويلتزموا أحكام التوراة، وَبَعَثْنا مِنْهُمُ اثْنَيْ عَشَرَ نَقِيباً اخترناهم وقدمناهم، على كل سبط نقيبًا ينقب عن أحوال قومه، ويقوم بأمرهم، ويتكفل بهم فيما أمروا بهرُوِي أن بني إسرائيل لمَّا خرجوا عن فرعون، واستقروا بأوائل الشام، أمرهم الله تعالى بالمسير إلى بيت المقدس، وهي في الأرض المقدسة، وكان يسكنها الجبابرة الكنعانيون، وقال: إني كتبتها لكم دارًا وقرارًا، فأخرجوا إليها، وجاهدوا مَن فيها من العدو، فإني ناصركم. وقال لموسى عليه السلام: خذ من قومك اثني عشر نقيبًا، من كل البحر المديد في تفسير القرآن المجيد (2/ 18)سبط نقيبًا، يكون أمينًا وكفيلاً على قومه بالوفاء على ما أمروا به. فاختار موسى النقباء، فسار بهم حتى إذا دنوا من أرض كنعان، وهي أريحا، بعث هؤلاء النقباء يتجسسون الأخبار، ونهاهم أن يحدثوا قومهم بما يرون، فلما قربوا من الأرض المقدسة رأوا أجرامًا عظامًا وبأسًا شديدًا، فهابوا ورجعوا وحدثوا قومهم، إلا كالب بن يوقنا- من سبط يهوذا- ويوشع بن نون- من سبط إفرائيم بن يوسف- ثم قالُوا يا مُوسى إِنَّ فِيها قَوْماً جَبَّارِينَ إلى آخر ما يأتي من قصتهم. وأما ما ذكره الثعلبي هنا، وغيره، من قصة عوج بن عناق، فقال القسطلاني: هي باطلة من وضع الزنادقة، فلا يجوز ذكرها في تفسير كتاب الله الصادق المصدوق
