Ali [R.A] said;
"With regard to me, two categories of people will be ruined, namely;
- he who loves me too much and the love takes him away from rightfulness and
- he who hates me too much and the hatred takes him away from rightfulness.
- The best man with regard to me is he who is on the middle course. So be with him and be with the great majority (of Muslims) because Allah's hand (of protection) is on keeping unity.
- You should beware of division because the one isolated from the group is (a prey) to Satan just as the one isolated from the flock of sheep is (a prey) to the wolf.
- Beware; whoever calls to this course, kill him, even though he may be under this headband of mine.
This section is also lovingly referred to as “Answering Answering-Ansar”. Here, we refute specific articles written by the various Shia propaganda sites, including Answering-Ansar, Al-Islam.org, and others.
- Hadith of Ghadir Khumm [A Sunni Perspective]
The event of Ghadir Khumm is taken grossly out of context by our Shia brothers who use it as proof that Ali ibn Abi Talib was nominated by the Prophet to be the next Caliph. This article includes rebuttals of common Shia arguments. The truth is that the Prophet never appointed Ali to be the next Caliph, and this is a distortion of the facts.
- A Comprehensive Rebuttal of Answering-Ansar’s Article on Umm Kulthoom’s Nikah
The Ansar website wrote an article proving that Ali ibn Abi Talib married his daughter off to Umar ibn al-Khattab. In response to this article, the Answering Ansar website wrote an article denying this marriage. Unfortunately, that article by Answering Ansar was very weak; this is our rebuttal to that article by Answering Ansar. This is a comprehensive rebuttal which refutes Answering Ansar’s article point by point.
- Rebuttal of Answering-Ansar’s Article “Who Killed Imam Hussain? (AS)”
This is a rebuttal of Answering-Ansar’s article entitled “Who Killed Imam Hussain? (AS)”. Answering-Ansar attempted to shift the blame away from the Shia, but this rebuttal clearly shows that there is no possible way that the Shia of Kufa can be exonerated. The Shia must acknowledge their illustrious history which involves betraying the Ahlel Bayt and leading their own Imam to his imminent death.
- Ali ibn Abi Talib Named His Sons after the Three Caliphs [includes a rebuttal of Answering-Ansar]
Ali named three of his Sons after the Three Caliphs. This fact is recorded by al-Shaykh al-Mufid in “Kitab al-Irshad”, pp. 268-269, where these three sons of Ali are listed as numbers 12, 6 and 10 respectively. Al-Shia.com itself documents how three of Ali’s sons were named Abu Bakr, Umar, and Uthman. This fact categorically rejects the Shia paradigm which is based upon the false idea that Ali disapproved of Abu Bakr, Umar, and Uthman. This article also contains a refutation of Answering-Ansar’s article on the issue of Ali’s sons.
- Abu Bakr (رضّى الله عنه), the Second of the Two
Allah honors Abu Bakr (رضّى الله عنه) by mentioning him in the Quran in verse 9:40, documenting how it was Abu Bakr (رضّى الله عنه) who was present with the Prophet (صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم) on the most historic day of Islam, in which the Prophet (صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم) made the Hijra that would be so important that it marks the start of the Islamic calender. We examine this honor given to Abu Bakr (رضّى الله عنه), and then respond to the feeble Shia justifications.
- Hadith About Drinking Urine in Sahih Al-Bukhari
This is a response to a certain Hadith in Sahih Al-Bukhari which is misrepresented by the Shia propagandists. It should be noted that the Shia use the same tactics as the evangelists and the “Answering-Islam” team which has dedicated itself to destroying the honor of Islam. I have seen this similar accusation on the nefarious Answering-Islam website which also twists this Hadith to “disprove” Islam. In the end, they disprove nobody save themselves and the joke is on them. As for the Shia, they should be ashamed of the company they are in, using the same old arguments as the very enemies of Islam. They will therefore be treated accordingly.
- Hadith About the Quran and Sunnah
The Shia propagandists often claim that the Hadith about the Quran and Sunnah (i.e. “I am leaving you with the Book of Allah and my Sunnah…”) is weak or even forged. This is a blatant lie; according to the standards of the Hadith scholars, the Hadith about the Quran and Sunnah is Sahih. The following is a dialogue between a Shia propagandist and Shaikh Gibril Haddad.
- Hadith al-Thaqalayn: The Two Weighty Things [A Sunni Perspective]
The Shia understanding of Hadith al-Thaqalayn is nothing short of deviancy and error; and inspite of their vociferous slogans claiming adherence to the two weighty objects, the Shia are in reality the worst and vilest deniers of the Thaqalayn. This article will help the reader to understand the true meaning behind the Hadith al-Thaqalayn as understood by the great majority of the Muslims.
- A Comprehensive Rebuttal of Answering-Ansar’s Article Entitled “Saqifa; the debacle of Islamic Government”
This is a comprehensive rebuttal of Answering-Ansar’s article entitled “Saqifa; the debacle of Islamic Government”. May Allah guide us to all that what is right!
- Hadith of the Twelve Caliphs [A Sunni Perspective]
The Shia propagandists have used and abused the Hadith of the twelve Caliphs and therefore we felt that a response was necessary. We hope that this response will adequately silence the Shia propagandists and will end the confusion on the Sunni side as to what the appropriate response should be. Insha-Allah from now on forwards, Sunnis can simply refer the Shia to this article when the question of the Hadith of the twelve Caliphs comes up.
- Reply to Email: Were Ali, Hasan, and Hussain Lying?
This was in response to an email query sent to us by a brother named John. We decided to make our reply public in case it should help any others as well. May Allah guide Brother John and us to Truth!
- Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah’s Love for Ahlel Bayt
One of the harshest opponents of the Shia was Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah, and because of this, some of the Shia have slandered him by claiming that he was a Nasibi (i.e. hater of Ahlel Bayt). And yet, Ibn Taymiyyah was a lover of Ahlel Bayt; not only did he love the Ahlel Bayt, but he publically declared the necessity of loving the Ahlel Bayt as a part of the creed of the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah. Let us narrate what Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah wrote in his most famous book, Al-Aqeedah Al-Wasitiyyah.
- Response to Shia Accusation that Our Website Lied; Women Do NOT Inherit Land in Shia Hadith
We have received a few emails on this matter, and therefore we thought it appropriate to clear up the matter and refute the Shia accusations made against our website. The irony is that even when the Shia propagandists try to expose others by calling them liars, the only way they can do this is by themselves lying!
- Hadith About the (Non)Incident of the Pen and Paper [A Sunni Perspective]
The Shia propagandists make a big fuss over the so-called “incident of the pen and paper” or what they ominously refer to as “Black Thursday”. The Shia exaggerate about the Hadiths on this topic, and use them as some sort of proof against Umar ibn al-Khattab. However, the truth of the matter is that these claims are nothing but the melodramatic antics of the Ghullat gossipers who seek to make a mountain out of an anthill. In this article, we shall examine said event in an objective and reasonable manner, after which we will respond to the Shia accusations.
- Accusing the Prophet’s Wife of Murder: “Kill this old fool (Na’thal)”
The Shia propaganda rampant on the internet accuses the Prophet’s own wife of being a murderer. These Shia claim that Aisha orchestrated the murder of Uthman bin Affan, alleging that she said the words “Kill this old fool (Na’thal)”. In this article, we refute this allegation and vindicate the Prophet’s wife.
- Response to Rayat’s Article Entitled “Imam Ali’s Sons”
In this article, we refute the arguments raised by “Rayat”. Even those who have not read his article will benefit from this article, because we raise a lot of new points that were not mentioned in our previous article about how Ali ibn Abi Talib named his sons after the first Three Caliphs. Not only this, but we see how it was the Sunnah of the Imams of Ahlel Bayt (not just Ali) to name their children after the first Three Caliphs.
- Hadith About the Prophet Contemplating Suicide
The Shia bring up this particular Hadith in Sunni books in order to attack the Ahlus Sunnah. In this article, we understand the Sunni perspective and refute the allegations levied by the Shia. This article may also be beneficial to those Muslims who wish to refute the non-Muslim polemicists who use similar arguments as the Shia.
