The Shia claim that the Prophet (pbuh) divinely appointed Ali (R.A) to be his successor at a place called Ghadir Khumm. Before we discuss...

Hadith Misrepresentations


  • 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.


  • Hadith About Muawiyyah: “May Allah Not Fill His Belly” [A Sunni Perspective]

    The Shia will look within the Hadith collection of the Ahlus Sunnah in order to prove their viewpoint. However, the Shia will oftentimes need to make use of academic deciet when they quote such Hadith. One such example can be found when they procure Hadith about Muawiyyah.


  • 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.


  • Hadith as-Safinah (of Ahlel Bayt being like Noah’s Ark) is a Forgery

    This is a Hadith commonly used by the Shia. However, it is an inauthentic forgery.


  • 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.


  • Hadith About Aisha’s House and Satan’s Horns [A Sunni Perspective]

    Despite the fact that Umm al Mu’mineen Aisha is part of the blessed Ahlel Bayt, the Shia propagandists revile her; of the many slanders they utter against her, one of their favorites is to claim that the “horns of Satan” or the “head of Satan” would emerge from Aisha’s house. This is based on their horrible misinterpretation of Sunni Hadith which they then propagate amongst the ignorant ones amongst the Sunnis. In this article, we analyze the Hadith and refute the baseless Shia accusations against our Mother Aisha.


  • 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.


  • Hadith al-Manzilah [A Sunni Perspective]

    The Prophet said to Ali, “Will you not be pleased that you will be to me like Haroon to Musa?” The Shia use this Hadith in order to “prove” that the Prophet nominated Ali as his successor. In this article, we shall see how Hadith al-Manzilah does not at all serve as a proof for the Shia nor does it even help the Shia cause in the least, but rather the Hadith itself stands as nothing but a proof against exactly what they claim.


  • Hadith About as-Siddeeq al-Akbar [A Sunni Perspective]

    Ali ibn Abi Talib allegedly said: “I am a man of Allah, the brother of the Prophet, and the great truthful one (as-Siddeeq al-Akbar); anyone who claims this other than me is a liar, I offered Salah seven years before anyone else in this Ummah prayed.” However, this narration attributed to Ali is Mawdoo (fabricated).


  • Hadith About the City of Knowledge and Ali is its Gate [A Sunni Perspective]

    In reference to the following Hadith: “I am the city of knowledge and Ali is its gate”, it is a forgery.


  • 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.


  • Hadith About No Sword Except Dhul-Fiqar [A Sunni Perspective]

    In reference to the narration: “There is no sword except Dhul-Fiqar, and there is no brave youth except Ali”, it should be known that it is not authentic.


  • Hadith About Dying With Hatred Towards Ali [A Sunni Perspective]

    In regards to the following narration: “Whoever died and in his soul was hate towards Ali, died like a Jew or Christian”, it should be known that it is not authentic.


  • Hadith About Shias Being Best of Creation [A Sunni Perspective]

    In regards to the narration: “You and your shias are the best of creation”, it should be known that it is not authentic.

Tahreef: Manipulation


One of the most troublesome points for the Shia faith is the fact that its central tenet, the concept of Imamah and the designation of the twelve Infallible Imams, is altogether missing from the Quran. To the Shia, the belief in the twelve Imams is central to one’s faith and the one who denies the Imamah of these twelve men does not die a complete believer. Therefore, it is mysterious that Allah did not include this belief in the Quran, even though much lesser important matters were in fact mentioned therein.

The classical Shia scholars rectified this discrepancy by claiming that the Quran was tampered with by the Sahabah (the Prophet’s Companions) who sought to prevent the rule of Ali (رضّى الله عنه) and the line of Imams after him; according to these Shia, the Sahabah removed verses and even entire Surahs from the Quran (including the so-called Surah al-Wilayah) in order to hide Allah’s Commandments to follow the twelve Imams. This belief in Tahreef (corruption or manipulation) of the Quran became a central part of the classical Shia theology. However, when the mainstream Muslims heard of this deviant belief, they reacted by burning to the stake the heretics who claimed such a thing. It was thus that the Shia scholars decided upon using Taqiyyah (lying to save oneself) in order to save the Shia masses from extinction. These classical Shia scholars feared that the welfare of the Shia masses was far too important and it was best to hide this view using Taqiyyah.
In the modern day, the Shia scholars have continued this tradition of Taqiyyah, publically denying–even to their own followers–the belief in Tahreef. The Shia propagandists have taken Taqiyyah one step further by simply denying that this was ever a Shia belief to begin with. Unfortunately, the classical Shia books–written by the founding fathers of Shia theology–are evidence to the contrary: the prevailing view of the men who founded the Shia theology, whose books form the basis for modern day Shia scholarship, was that Tahreef of Quran did in fact happen.

Please read the following articles on the topic:
  • Shaykh al-Mufid, Tahreef, Taqiyyah, and Half-Quoting

    Shaykh al-Mufid claimed, like his other Shia colleagues, that Uthman (رضّى الله عنه) did not properly compile the Quran and that parts of the Quran were left out (i.e. omitted) from the Mushaf, in particular those verses in the Quran in which the names of the twelve Imams were mentioned. Shaykh al-Mufid claimed that Amir al-Mu’mineen Ali (رضّى الله عنه) was the only one who compiled the entire Quran and that this edition was currently being held by Al-Qaem (i.e. Imam Mehdi) who would reveal this complete version when he would return from his occultation.


  • Shaykh al-Mufid and Tahreef, Strike Two

    Shaykh al-Mufid of the Shia needs no introduction. He was the classical Shia scholar of the tenth century, and is credited as being one of the founding fathers of Shia theology. Shaykh al-Mufid is to the Shia who Imam Abu Hanifa is to the Sunnis. In Kitab al-Irshad, he writes about how the Imam Mehdi (i.e. Qa’im) will–on his return–teach people the “real” Quran.


  • Tahreef (Tampering) of Verse 33:33

    The classical scholars of the Shia claimed that there was Tahreef (tampering) of the Quran. They claimed that the “evil” Sahabah changed the Quran, and that the Mushaf we have today is not the real Quran (at least not in its unaltered form). The contemporary Shia scholars, however, completely deny that they believe in Tahreef or that this belief was ever a part of their sect. Nonetheless, despite this denial, many of the Shia Ulema hold onto the belief known as Tahreef bit Tarteeb (tampering in the order of the verses of the Quran such that the meaning of it is changed). Many Shia scholars claim that verse 33:33 was altered in such a manner.


  • Tahreef (Tampering) of Verse 11:73

    It should also be known that the Shia do not love Ahlel Bayt as they claim but rather they hate it, as they scorn the Prophet’s wives. To justify their claim of being the lovers of Ahlel Bayt, the Shia try to use aggressive word games with Verse 33:33, but these same “grammatical” games fall apart when they are applied to Verse 5:73, forcing the Shia to adopt the opinion of their classical Ulema, namely that the Sahabah tampered with the Quran!


  • Answering-Ansar’s Guru Says Current Quran is “Incomplete” and “Not Enough”

    In this article, we expose Answering-Ansar’s guru, Allamah Abdul Kareem Mushtaq. We reveal the link between Answering-Ansar and then we examine the Allamah’s views. Allamah Abdul Kareem Mushtaq believed that our current Quran is incomplete and insufficient. He claimed that Imam Mehdi would bring the entire Quran, and that this true Quran would be complete, unlike our “weak” Quran. The Allamah even claims that the Quran of Imam Mehdi has the name of Pakistan in it! This is an article that will deliver a blow to the credibility of Answering-Ansar that they cannot possibly recover from.

Taqiyyah: Pious Lying

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, what I am going to tell you is somthing that all of us muslims should know about the Shi'ites, this fandamental thing will show us why the Shi'ites can't be trusted, and why the Shi'ites are such of an enemy to Islam, this article of the Shi'ite faith called Taqayyah (concealment, deception or lying) lets the Shi'ites betray us and lie about Hadeeth and the Quran, this is also why a Shi'ite can never be used as a witness, or why he can not narrate Hadeeth, I myself have when talking to Shi'ites have found out that they always lie about Hadeeth for example on of them told me that there was a Hadeeth in Bukhari cursing all of the sahabah, so I asked him for the proof and he said that he had it, so he gave me a page full of references, all which were irrelevant and have nothing to do with this hadeeth. Another Shi'ite once added on a verse to the quran and tried to tell me that this was the quran when I asked for references again he just refused to tell me, since then that Shi'ite has not been around since.
I also warn all you muslims against the "Muslim" chat rooms, as there are many Shi'ites in them, I have found way over 10 who were on at one time you see they pretend to be Sunni Muslims but they try to infiltrate us by quoting their false Hadeeth and try to mislead us, as they trully despise us Muslims. So dear brothers below is evidence that Shi'ites are allowed to lie and not only that, but encouraged to lie to us Muslims.
Please note that the Shi'ites attribute the following to Abu Abdullah (Ja'far as-Sadiq):
"Mix with them(i.e. non-shia) externally but oppose them internally." (Al-Kafi vol.9 p.116) now this Shi'ite hadeeth means that they should mix with us and try to decieve us..It trully shows us Muslims what the Shi'ites are!
"He who conceals his religion has saved it, and he who makes it public has destroyed it." now this contradicts the Quran as will be shown below.
"A believer who does not dissimulate is like a body without a head." (Tafseer al-Askari) It is also interesting that the Shi'ites article of Faith "Taqayyah" is just like what the Talmudites (jews who follow the Talmud) say about the Goyyims (non-jews,) as all Talmudites say that they should lie to us non-jews..You see this explains a lot about the Shi'ites and their Similarities with the Jews as the Shi'ite sect was started by Abdullah bin Saba'. (a Jew who started the shi'ite religion, just with the intent of trying to destroy the Muslims..this in explained in the article "Who founded the Shi'ite Religion")
"Nine tenths of religion is taqiyyah (dissimulation), hence one who does not dissimulate has no religion." (Al-Kafi vol.9 p.110) This shows us that Shi'ites have to lie to us as if they don't then they will not be called Muslims by other Shi'ites....it shows us how sick is the Shi'ite faith.
Concerning the verse, "Verily the most noble of you in Allah's sight is the most God-fearing (atqaakum)" , the Shia attribute the following interpretation of "atqaakum": "That is, your deeds done by taqiyyah (dissimulation) (Al-I'tiqadat)
So as you can see, the Shi'ites beleive that they should decieve us with their lies, as the Shi'ites hate us, sunni muslims, by calling us worse than dogs....("Although Allah, the Exalted, has not created a creature worse than a dog, yet a Nasbi (ie. A Sunni) is worse than even a dog." here is the Shi'te book that this lie came from (Haqqul Yakeen (Persian) Vol 2, P. 516)
So my dear Muslims now you know just a small part of what the Shi'ites say in their books which insult the meaning of Islam with their superstisious ideas and horrible lies against the Sahabah. (the prophets Companions)
Now I will finish of with this magnicificant ayah from the Quran which shows us that Taqayyah (deception, lying etc) is forbidden in Islam.. and the Shi'ites practice this Taqqayah on us Muslims!!! so dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam, Allah states in the Noble Quran: "Surely those who hide from people the clear proofs and guidance, which we clarified in the Book (Qur'an), will be cursed by Allah and all those who curse." (2:159)
And the statement of the Prophet (s.a.w) who said: "Whoever is asked for knowledge and conceals it will have a bridle of fire around his neck on the Day of Judgement." (Abu Dawood, Tirmidhi)
So dear Brothers and Sisters, now Inshallah we can see beyond the Curtain concealing the Shi'ites true beleifs and not just the ones that he wishes to show us.... Inshallah Allah will guide us to the truth and may we all see the Shi'ites for what they are..... Ameen.

Taqiyyah-2
Here, we examine one of the peculiar aspects of the Shia faith, namely the belief in Taqiyyah (lying to save one’s religion). It is in fact this belief which has allowed the Shia cult to grow in such a manner that the masses remain oblivious to the threat posed by it.

  • Taqiyyah

    Taqiyyah translates to “the act of deceiving.” An explanation of Taqiyyah was given by the Infallible Imam of the Shia as recorded in Al-Kafi, the most reliable of the Shia books of Hadith: The Imam said that Taqiyyah is to say one thing outwardly but to believe another inwardly. There is another term for this: lying. It is indeed strange that the Shia faith not only allows for lying but commands it!

    Shaikh Damashqia likens Taqiyyah to pork. Pork is Haram normally. However, if a person put a gun to one’s head and says to eat pork, then […]


  • Grand Ayatollah On Cursing the Prophet’s Wives/Companions and Taqiyyah

    The following fatwa is found on the Official Website of Grand Ayatollah Muhammad Shahroudi. Please note how the Grand Ayatollah allows the cursing but it must be done in such a way as not to reveal the Taqiyyah that is being done in front of the Sunni masses. Perhaps this will wake up those Sunnis who are fooled by the Shia lies when they say that they do not curse the Prophet’s wives or Sahabah. This comes from the mouth of the Grand Ayatollah himself.


  • Shaykh al-Mufid, Tahreef, Taqiyyah, and Half-Quoting

    Shaykh al-Mufid claimed, like his other Shia colleagues, that Uthman (رضّى الله عنه) did not properly compile the Quran and that parts of the Quran were left out (i.e. omitted) from the Mushaf, in particular those verses in the Quran in which the names of the twelve Imams were mentioned.

Mutah: Legal Prostitution


Shi’ism encourages Mutah, a form of prostitution, which is not only permissible in Shia fiqh but is actually considered Mustahabb (highly recommended). In Mutah, a man pays a woman a set amount of money (“Mehr”) after which he is “temporarily married” to her and can engage in sexual relations with her until the agreed upon time limit runs out, which can be as little as one hour. The articles below will examine the immoral institution of Mutah.
  • Mutah

    “Mutah” translates literally to “pleasure” in Arabic. In the Shia context, Mutah refers to a “temporary marriage.” In the Shia faith, Mutah is actively encouraged and is considered Mustahabb (highly recommended). In reality, Mutah is an abomination, and is nothing less than prostitution.


  • Al-Shia.com on “Rewards for Doing Mutah”

    The popular Shia website, Al-Shia.com, has an entire book on Mutah, titled “Narrations About the Rewards for Doing Mutah.” This book contains authentic Shia Hadith about Mutah. We have copied and pasted them here. These “Hadith” are troublesome, to say the least.


  • A Plea from a Muslim Sister

    Every day, more and more girls in our community are falling victim to the idea of Mutah. These girls are helpless in asking anyone for help, especially their parents.This is the experience of one young Muslim girl who was tricked into doing Mutah. Her experience should serve as a lesson for us all.


  • More Shia Hadith on Mutah

    Mutah is not only allowed in the Shia religion, but it is actually actively encouraged. Al-Kafi is the most reliable of the four Shia books of Hadith. Here are some Hadith from that book; it should be noted that the Ahlus Sunnah rejects these Hadith as Shia fabrications.


  • The Mutah Pimps

    According to an official source in Tehran, there has been a 635 percent increase in the number of teenage girls in prostitution, or rather, Mutah. The magnitude of this statistic conveys how rapidly this form of abuse has grown. Officials of the Social Department of the Interior Ministry are worried about the increase in sexually transmitted diseases.


  • Mutah and Hypocrisy

    The Shia leaders keep telling the masses how there is nothing wrong with Mutah, and they will even say how Mutah is a very good thing and that society needs it. But how many of these scholars would give their own daughters in Mutah?


  • Ayatollah and Mutah

    Ayatollah Khomeini is considered by the Shia to be the Wilayat Mutlaqah, or the Absolute Authority from Allah. He is the sole representative of the Hidden Imam. Here, we examine one of his statements about the institution of Mutah.


  • The Fiqh of Mutah

    The following are Shia Hadith which expound the Fiqh of Mutah. It is abundantly clear that these so-called Hadith advocate prostitution and Zinnah, and go against the chastity that is a central tenet of true Islam.


  • Legalized Whore-Houses in Iran

    The Iranian government recently passed legislation which created legal whore-houses, brothels which would be officially liscensed under law as “Chastity Houses.” Such a name is of course the epitome of Orwellian terminology, and the irony of the name should not be lost to anyone.


  • Supreme Leader Khamenei on Mutah

    In response to a question about Mutah, Grand Ayatollah Khamenei responded and declared that Mutah (temporary marriage) is not only permissible but rather it is Mustahabb (highly recommended). Here, we shall quote the Grand Ayatollah’s official website where he answers questions and passes Fatwas. This should shatter any misconception about the greatness of Mutah in the Shia faith.


  • In Mutah, Man Does Not Provide Support to Woman Nor Child

    According to the Shia Fiqh, a man who has Mutah with a woman is not obligated to provide for her at all. In fact, even if she gets pregnant, the man still does not need to provide! In this article, we examine the religious edicts of Ayatollah Sistani and Ayatollah Lankarani.


  • Mutah is Haram

    The Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah compeletely rejects Mutah. This article will show how the Prophet (صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم) completely forbade it, and how it is pure blasphemy to slander the Prophet (صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم) by saying that he would encourage prostitution. This article refutes certain non-truths spread by Shia propagandists who attempt to “prove” Mutah via Sunni sources.


  • Making a Living from Mutah Prostitution

    Using the institution of Mutah, it is very possible for women to gain a living by doing Mutah with one man and then immediately marrying another man, and so on and so forth. To the unbiased observor, this woman would be nothing more than a prostitute. The following question was asked on Al-Islam.org, the authoratative Shia website. The scholar passed the following Fatwa. No comments necessary, as it speaks for itself.


  • Grand Ayatollah Sistani’s Fatwa: Virgin Girls Can Do Mutah

    Fatwa from Grand Ayatollah Sistani, who sanctions virgin girls to be given in Mutah.


  • Shia Hadith: Woman Who Does Mutah Twice Will Become Pure

    Here, we shall examine certain Shia Hadith which dictate that a woman will be forgiven her sins if she engages in Mutah twice. It seems that the Shia religion is immoral, and it advocates the exploitation of women via the institution of prostitution. Here, we see the deviant idea that women who give themselves in sexual pleasure to men (the definition of Mutah is literally “pleasure”) will be made pure and forgiven their sins. We wonder: how could fornication and prostitution make anyone pure? Logic tells us that it is nothing but an immoral act.


  • Fatwas: Permission of Wali Not Required for Mutah; Shia Guy Can Take Sunni Girl in Mutah

    Shi’ism is a truly dangerous religion, and parents should be made aware of this Shia threat to the honor of Sunni girls. May Allah protect our women, as well as the women of the Shia who are also susceptible to being exploited by their Shia men. These Shia men can literally take away girls and have Mutah with them, without even the permission of the girl’s parents. And not only this, but these men believe themselves to be rewarded for this act of Mutah.


  • Misyar Marriage is Not Like Mutah

    This craze to equate Mutah with Misyar is one of the desperate attempts of the Shia propagandists to conflate simple issues, just like they conflate abrogation with Tahreef. This is to hide their embarassment over their filthy religion which allows women to be rented by the hour.


  • Grand Ayatollah Sistani on the Only Difference between Mutah and a “One Night Stand”

    Here, Grand Ayatollah Sistani implicitly admits that the only difference between Mutah and the American “one night stand” is nothing but a contract. In all other aspects, there is no difference between the two. Sistani has attempted to equate “having sex with friends” to marriage, completely oblivious to the fact that marriage is not only about having sex but raising a family together, long-term companionship, and a life of commitment. How far removed is marriage from “friends having sex” or Mutah/prostitution!


  • Shia Website Al-Islam.org Says A Woman Who Enters Into Mutah is “Rented”

    If one reads Shia Hadith, it becomes very clear that the woman is treated as “rented” property. In this article, we examine quotes from the Shia website Al-Islam.org in which women are described as being “rented”.


  • USA Today: ‘Pleasure Marriages’ (Mutah) Regain Popularity in Iraq

    Pleasure marriages were outlawed under Saddam Hussein but have begun to flourish again. The contracts, lasting anywhere from one hour to 10 years, generally stipulate that the man will pay the woman in exchange for sexual intimacy. Now some Iraqi clerics and women’s rights activists are complaining that the contracts have become…an outlet for male sexual desires.


  • Marriage With the Intention to Divorce

    In this article, we clarify the stance of the Ahl as-Sunnah with regards to the issue of marriage with the intention of divorce. Such marriages are not permissible.


Shia Racism


The Shia faith was created and promulgated by Persian fire-worshippers who despised non-Persians, especially Arabs and blacks. We see that this racism inevitably seeped into Shi’ism.

The faith of Shi’ism found many supporters in Persia, and slowly the fire-worshipping ideologies of the Persians was fused into the Shia faith. The racism of the Persians eventually seeped into the Shia canon. The following article examines some Shia Hadith that blatantly teach racism, all recorded in Al-Kafi, the most reliable of the four Shia books of Hadith.


    Shia Hadith
    When the Prophet sent ambassadors to Persia and called them to accept Islam, the Persians responded with haughtiness. They rebuffed the “lowly” Arab ambassador and categorically declared that the “great” Persian race could never submit to the “lowly” Arabs. Indeed, racism in Zoroastrian Persia was rampant; the fire-worshipping Persians had the notion that they were racially superior to all other races.

The racism of the Persians eventually seeped into the Shia canon. The following are some Shia Hadith that blatantly teach racism, all recorded in Al-Kafi, the most reliable of the four Shia books of Hadith. They are also available on Al-Shia.com, a very authoratative website of the Shia.
    These Hadith (shown below) are Sahih according to the Shia, as they are narrated by Ali bin Ibrahimwho is considered to be of the utmost reliability according to the Shia. He was one of the most prominent sources in Al-Kafi, the most reliable of the Shia books of Hadith.
    We see that the Shia religion is very much against black people, and these Hadith use the term “Zunj” which is a common Arabic word used to refer to all black people. The Arabic of the Hadith can be found on the Al-Shia.com website:

    1. (Narrated) Ali bin Ibrahim, from Haroon bin Muslim, from Mas’adah bin Ziyad, from Abu Abdullah [as] said: Amirul-Mu’mineen Ali [as] said:
    “Beware of marrying the Negroes (Zunj) for they are an ugly creation.”(al-Kafi, fil Furoo’: Book of Nikah, Chapter: Whom Are Disliked for Marriage, Narration 1)
    2. (Narrated) Ali bin Ibrahim, from Ismael bin Muhammad al-Makki, from Ali bin al-Husain, from ‘Amr bin Othman, from al-Husain bin Khalid, from whom he entioned from Abu Ar-Rabi’ al-Shami said:Imam Abu Abdullah [as] said:
    “Do not [even] buy anyone who is a Negro…never marry anyone of the Kurdish (people) for they are part of the Jinn (demons)…” (al-Kafi, fil Furoo’: Book of Nikah, Chapter: Whom Are Disliked for Marriage, Narration 2)
    3. (Narrated) Several of our fellows from Sahl bin Ziyad, from Musa bin Ja’far, from ‘Amr bin Sa’eed, from Muhammad bin Abdillah al-Hashimi, from Ahmad bin Yousuf, from Ali bin Dawood al-Haddaad said: Imam Abu Abdullah [as] said:
    “Marry not from the Negroes (Zanj) nor the Khazar, for they have near relatives whom are unfaithful.” (al-Kafi, fil Furoo’: Book of Nikah, Chapter: Whom Are Disliked for Marriage, Narration 3)
    He further said:
    “India, Sindh and Qindh–not a single one of them [from there] is intelligent.” (al-Kafi, fil Furoo’: Book of Nikah, Chapter: Whom Are Disliked for Marriage, Narration 3)
    India of course refers to India, Sindh to Pakistan, and Qindh refers to Afghanistan. Khazar refers to the northern areas near the Black Sea. And the Negroes are of course from the West of Persia in Africa.
    If we notice, Shi’ism is racist towards everyone other than the Persians. People of every region surrounding Persia are considered inferior, including Africans, Kurds, Afghanis, Pakistanis, and Indians.
    The racism is also levied against Arabs and Arab culture. It is written in the Shia book “Tareekh-al-Islam” that when Allah becomes happy, then He talks in Persian, and He only speaks Arabic when He becomes annoyed. (Tareekh-al-Islam, p.163)
    Another interesting point is that although the Shia believe in the superiority of the Prophet’s descendants, they only trace it (i.e. the Ahlel Bayt) through the progeny of Hussain. They ignore the progeny of his brother, Hasan. It does not take much thought to realize why this is the case. Hussain married a Persian, and thus his progeny was Persian. Therefore, the Shia found it prudent to abandon the non-Persian progeny of Hasan and instead they only trace their Imamah through the descendants of Hussain.
    Ahlus Sunnah Rejects Racism
    Whereas the Shia Hadith advocate racism, the Hadith of the mainstream Muslims completely rejects racism. Here are some Hadith considered authentic by the Ahlus Sunnah.
    The Prophet said:
    “An arab has no superiority over a non-Arab, nor has a non-Arab any superiority over an Arab, nor has a black man any superiority over a white man or a white man over a black man except by the criterion of taqwa (righteous practice). All of you are from Adam, and Adam is from dust.” (As-Sunan)
    The Prophet also said:
    “Allah does not look at your shapes or your colors but He looks at your hearts (intentions) and your deeds. Creatures are the dependants of Allah and the closest among them to Allah are indeed the most useful to His dependants.”
    Assabiyyah (nationalism/tribalism/bigotry) is strictly Haram (forbidden) based on the Hadith of the Ahlus Sunnah.
    The Prophet said:
    “He is not one us who calls for Assabiyyah or who fights for Assabiyyah or who dies for Assabiyyah.” (Abu Dawood)
    The Prophet said about Assabiyyah:
    “Leave it. It is rotten.” (Sahih Bukhari & Muslim)
    We ask our Shia brothers to look inside their hearts and ask themselves wether they would rather follow an Islam that preaches racism (i.e. Shi’ism) or an Islam that preaches racial equality (i.e. Ahlus Sunnah)?

    • Racism in Shi’ism

      The faith of Shi’ism found many supporters in Persia, and slowly the fire-worshipping ideologies of the Persians was fused into the Shia faith. The racism of the Persians eventually seeped into the Shia canon. The following article examines some Shia Hadith that blatantly teach racism, all recorded in Al-Kafi, the most reliable of the four Shia books of Hadith.

    Mourning Matam: Self-Flagellation

    The Shia practises of Matam are no doubt an embarassment to many Shia living in the West; thus, many of them claim that Matam is done only by misguided Shia who are “ignorant” and “extremist” fringe elements. This is a blatant lie (or sheer ignorance): Matam is part and parcel of Shi’ism. We shall herein see how the Shia Maraje’ (top scholars) advocate Matam, even Tatbir (shedding of blood with swords). Then, we shall see what the Shia practise of Matam really is. We have extremely stunning videos, so viewer beware!
    • The Ayatollahs Recommend Self-Flagellation

      The Shia will oftentimes use Taqiyyah (lying to save one’s religion) when asked about Matam. We often hear Shia, particularly in the West, saying that beating oneself during Matam is actually forbidden in the Shia religion, and that it is only ignorant and “extremist” Shia who do that. This is a bold-faced lie, and we shall prove it here. In fact, the opposite is true: any Shia who claims that self-flagellation is not Mustahabb (highly recommended) is either lying or ignorant of his religion. All of the Shia Maraje’ (high scholars) are agreed that beating oneself is not only allowed in Shi’ism, but rather it is encouraged.


    • Matam: Self-Flagellation

      The Shia have added many evil innovations to the faith, and this is why they are called Ahlel Bidah (the People of Bidah). One such Bidah (innovation) is the practise of Matam, in which the Shia beat themselves in Muharram on the day of Ashura. The Shia will slap their chests, beat their backs, and involve themselves in other practises in order to “commemorate” the dead.


    • Pictures of Matam

      Matam is a violent ritual performed by the Shia. This page contains graphic pictures of this Shia practise. Viewer beware: these are extremely graphic pictures and not for the faint of heart.


    • Matam Videos

      Here are some videos of Shia doing Matam. Viewer Beware! These videos are graphic and are not for the faint of heart. As can be seen, the Shia are giving Islam a bad name; the non-Muslims will see this and think that Muslims are nothing but uncivilized barbarians. This is definitely not Islam. Such ridicolous practises are reminiscent of pagan rituals of the most crude design!


    • Black Clothes

      The Shia Hadith declares that Amir Al-Mumineen Ali (رضّى الله عنه) and Imam As-Sadiq (رضّى الله عنه) declared it Haram (forbidden) to wear black clothes. And yet, we find the Shia scholars wearing black, as well as the Shia masses who do so out of a sense of religious obligation. This is truly an inconsistency in the Shia religion.


    • Why Sunnis Do Not Comemmorate Ashura

      The Shia sometimes ask why the Ahlus Sunnah does not participate in the Ashura comemmorations. This response by the Ahlel Bayt Admin should clarify the position of the Ahlus Sunnah, and it will expose the hidden agenda of the Shia who celebrate Ashura only as a means of spiting the Ahlus Sunnah.


    • More Pictures of Matam

      These are some more gruesome pictures of the Shia rituals during the day of Ashura. Viewer beware: very graphic pictures and definitely not for the faint of heart.

    Status of Sahabah: Companions of Prophet


    The Shia paradigm is based on slandering the Sahabah, the friends, companions of the Prophet of Islam (صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم). Using a process of disinformation, the Shia will portray the false idea that the Sahabah were involved in oppressing the Ahlel Bayt, in particular the family of Ali ibn Abi Talib (رضّى الله عنه). The historical narrative of the Shia is based on this lie, and here we defend the Sahabah and show that they were lovers of the Ahlel Bayt.The Shia paradigm is based on slandering the Sahabah, the friends of the Prophet of Islam.

    • Hadith About Muawiyyah: “May Allah Not Fill His Belly” [A Sunni Perspective]

      The Shia will look within the Hadith collection of the Ahlus Sunnah in order to prove their viewpoint. However, the Shia will oftentimes need to make use of academic deciet when they quote such Hadith. One such example can be found when they procure Hadith about Muawiyyah.


    • Fadak, Part I: Shia Hadith Confirms Abu Bakr’s Justice (رضّى الله عنه)

      The Shia attack the personality of Abu Bakr (رضّى الله عنه) by criticizing his position in regards to Fadak. They accuse him of fabricating Hadith and thereby denying Fatima (رضّى الله عنها) from recieving her inheritance. However, we see that the argument of the Shia propagandists becomes impotent when we show them their own Shia Hadith in Al-Kafi in which the Prophet (صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم) categorically states that Prophets do not leave behind inheritance but rather his property should be given as alms.


    • Fadak, Part II: Why Didn’t Ali (رضّى الله عنه) Return Fadak?

      The Shia criticize Abu Bakr (رضّى الله عنه) for not giving Fadak to Fatima (رضّى الله عنها), and they also criticize Uthman (رضّى الله عنها) for refusing to “restore” Fadak to the progeny and inheritors of Fatima (رضّى الله عنها). And yet, the Shia completely forget (or decietfully ignore) the fact that Ali (رضّى الله عنه) himself upheld Abu Bakr’s decision (رضّى الله عنه). Ali (رضّى الله عنه) continued to use Fadak as a Waqf of the state. Thus, if blame is to be put on the shoulders of Abu Bakr (رضّى الله عنه), then equal blame should be put on Ali (رضّى الله عنه).


    • Fadak, Part III: Ahlus Sunnah is Not Abandoning the Quran

      When the Ahlus Sunnah points to Hadith (including the Shia’s own Al-Kafi) to prove that Prophets do not leave behind inheritance, the Shia propagandists resort to rhetoric and accuse the Ahlus Sunnah of abandoning the Quran. This article exposes the weakness of the Shia’s claims and gives examples to show how the Ahlus Sunnah has analyzed the Quran and Hadith in a fair and accurate manner.


    • Fadak, Part IV: Shia Women Do Not Inherit Land Anyways

      An astounding revelation–of which many people happen to be uninformed of–is the fact that in the Shia Fiqh a woman does not inherit land or fixed property. How is it that the Shia accept it for Fatima (رضّى الله عنها) to inherit Fadak, when their own jurisprudence does not allow the succession of a woman to land or fixed property? So the Shia Fiqh itself would deny the inheritance to Fatima (رضّى الله عنها) even if the Prophets were allowed to give inheritance to their heirs (even though they are not). This makes the Shia arguments against Abu Bakr (رضّى الله عنه) even more useless.


    • Fadak, Part V: Fatima’s Anger (رضّى الله عنها)

      The Shia propagandists declare that because Abu Bakr (رضّى الله عنه) angered Fatima (رضّى الله عنها), this is proof of his guilt on the matter. They will even show a Hadith narrated by Aisha (رضّى الله عنها) to “prove” their claims. This article will fairly analyze and take into perspective Fatima’s feelings over the issue of Fadak.


    • Fadak, Part VI: Fadak Was Not a Gift

      The Shia propagandists argue that Abu Bakr (رضّى الله عنه) denied Fatima (رضّى الله عنها) her inheritance. When the Ahlus Sunnah replies by showing them their own Hadith in Al-Kafi [i.e. regarding how Prophets do not leave behind inheritance], then the Shia will suddenly claim that Fadak was a gift given to Fatima (رضّى الله عنها), and not inheritance at all! This article examines this claim and proves it to be false.


    • Fadak, Part VII: Charity is Good

      The Shia will make it sound as if Abu Bakr (رضّى الله عنه) took Fadak and made it his own. Abu Bakr (رضّى الله عنه) did not take a cent from Fadak, but rather he made it part of the Waqf for the benefit of the Ummah and the emerging Muslim state. Thus, the only crime that Abu Bakr (رضّى الله عنه) can be charged with is donating to help poor people.


    • Fadak, Part VIII: The Quran Does Not Say Prophets Give Inheritance

      The Shia propagandists will try to give examples from the Quran to prove that Prophets actually do give inheritance. This is all in an attempt to undermine the words of Prophet Muhammad (صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم) who clearly said that Prophets do not give material possessions as inheritance. However, this article analyzes the Quranic verses used by the Shia propagandists, and we see that their claims are easily debunked.


    • Fadak, Part IX: Umar (رضّى الله عنه) Upheld Abu Bakr’s Decision (رضّى الله عنه)

      The Shia propagandists will sometimes claim that Umar (رضّى الله عنه) overturned Abu Bakr’s decision (رضّى الله عنه) and gave Fadak back to Ali (رضّى الله عنه). They will use this as “proof” that Abu Bakr (رضّى الله عنه) was wrong, implying that “look, even your Umar gave Fadak back.” This is a blatant lie. Umar (رضّى الله عنه) upheld Abu Bakr’s decision (رضّى الله عنه).


    • Fadak, Part X: The Shia Who Deny Our Interpretation of the Al-Kafi Hadith

      This article is in response to the anti-Sunni websites such as “Answering-Ansar” which tried to undermine the value of the Hadith in Al-Kafi about Prophets not leaving behind material inheritance. We see that the Shia propagandist will get stuck in the web of his own lies.


    • Fadak, Part XI: Respect for Fatima (رضّى الله عنها)

      In regards to Fatima (رضّى الله عنها), she is revered by the Ahlus Sunnah. We do not say that she sinned, nor do we say that she lied, nor do we insult her in any way. We say that she merely made a sincere mistake, something that all human beings do. The claims that the Sunnis insult Fatima (رضّى الله عنها) are lies and merely a part of the Shia propaganda machine.


    • Fadak: Part XII, Conclusion

      This twelve part series on Fadak was paraphrased by Ibn al-Hashimi from an article by Muhammad al-Khider. In the last part, we part the reader with some words on Fadak, and we discuss the bias of the Shia as well as points to remember when debating with the Shia propagandist. It is our sincere hope that our Fadak series was educational and helpful, Insha-Allah.


    • Neither Abu Bakr Nor Umar Was a “Liar, Sinful, Treacherous, and Dishonest”

      The Shia propagandists–including the Answering Ansar website–will oftentimes show us a Hadith from Sahih Muslim in which it appears that Ali thought of Abu Bakr and Umar as being a “liar, treacherous, and dishonest.” Of course–as is usually the case–the Shia propagandists are making use of a technique we like to call “Half Hadith-ing.” They post only half of the Hadith and thereby take it completely out of context. If we examine the entire Hadith, we see that the Shia propaganda is easily debunked.


    • Four Caliphs and Prophet Related by Marriage

      All of the Three Caliphs (which Shia insult and call the “three fools”) were linked to Prophet Muhammad (صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم) through marriage, blood, or both. That is how close friends the Three Caliphs and the Prophet (صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم) were. Furthermore, Ali (رضّى الله عنه) gave his daughter in marriage to Umar (رضّى الله عنه), and this just shows how mischievious the Shia propagandists are when they try to make it look like they were all enemies. Far from it! None of them were enemies. They were all best of friends and Sahabah (Companions) to each other. Indeed, Ali (رضّى الله عنه) was the vizier and top aid to all Three Caliphs.


    • Ali (رضّى الله عنه) Gave His Daughter to Umar (رضّى الله عنه)

      Ali (رضّى الله عنه) gave his daughter, Umm Kulthoom (رضّى الله عنها), in marriage to Umar (رضّى الله عنه). This is a fact which most Shia lay persons have no idea about. It is also a fact that topples the entire paradigm of Shi’ism. It proves that Ali (رضّى الله عنه) approved of Umar’s character (رضّى الله عنه), and it disproves the exaggerated Shia historical accounts of animosity between Ali (رضّى الله عنه) and the Three Caliphs. We quote narrations from Shia Hadith in Al-Kafi which document this marriage. This article was modified from the one written by Abu Muhammad al-Afriki; those who have read the earlier version will be pleased with this updated and revised version.


    • 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.


    • Shia Websites Confirm Umm Kulthoom’s Marriage to Umar

      There are at least four Shia Hadith in Al-Kafi that confirm the marriage of Umm Kulthoom bint Ali to Umar bin Khattab. Here, we provide Shia websites that quote these Hadith. It is therefore very difficult for the Shia to deny this marriage. Whenever the Shia propagandist goes off on some rambling diatribe about how the marriage could not have taken place, these hyperlinks should be given to him to bring him back to reality.


    • 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.


    • Marriages of the Four Caliphs and the Prophet (صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم)

      Uthman (رضّى الله عنه) married two of the Prophet’s daughters, and the Prophet (صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم) married Abu Bakr’s daughter as well as Umar’s daughter. Therefore, all of the Three Caliphs (which the Shia insult and call the “three fools”) were linked to Prophet Muhammad (صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم) through marriage, blood, or both. That is how close companions the Three Caliphs and the Prophet (صلّى الله عليه وآله وسلّم) were.


    • 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.


    • The Four Rightly Guided Caliphs

      In this article, we examine the Hadith in Sunni literature which praise Abu Bakr, `Umar, `Uthman, and `Ali. This serves two functions in the Sunni-Shia debate. The Shia will always bring up isolated Hadith in praise of `Ali and use these as proof of `Ali’s superiority to the Three Caliphs. However, this is only looking at part of the picture; we must look at other Hadith in which the Prophet says similar things to other Sahabah. The second function of this article will be that we can see all the praises given to `Ali in the Sunni literature and thereby reject the Shia rhetoric that the Ahlus Sunnah is Nasibi.


    • Al-Islam.org Admits that Umar Married Ali’s Daughter

      The most reliable and popular Shia website, Al-Islam.org, has a section for fatwas entitled “Aalim Network”. These Shia Aalims refute Answering-Ansar, the Shia Encyclopedia, and Shia Chat by clearly stating that Ali ibn Abi Talib did in fact marry his daughter to Umar ibn al-Khattab. Here, we examine the position of the respected Shia Aalim: Shaykh Mohammed Soleiman-Peneh of Al-Islam.org’s “Aalim Network.”


    • Grand Ayatollah On Cursing the Prophet’s Wives/Companions and Taqiyyah

      The following fatwa is found on the Official Website of Grand Ayatollah Muhammad Shahroudi. Please note how the Grand Ayatollah allows the cursing but it must be done in such a way as not to reveal the Taqiyyah that is being done in front of the Sunni masses. Perhaps this will wake up those Sunnis who are fooled by the Shia lies when they say that they do not curse the Prophet’s wives or Sahabah. This comes from the mouth of the Grand Ayatollah himself.


    • 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.


    • Abu Bakr and Ali Related Through Marriage

      Asma bint Umais, as is already mentioned, was the wife of Ali’s real brother, Jafar ibn Abi Talib. When he died, she was married to Abu Bakr. She also gave birth to Abu Bakr’s son named Muhammad. Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) appointed him the governor of Egypt. After the death of Abu Bakr, Ali ibn Abi Talib married her. A son named Yahya was born out of the marriage.


    • The Prophet’s Praise of Abu Bakr

      Allah’s Messenger added, “No doubt, I am indebted to Abu Bakr more than to anybody else regarding both his companionship and his wealth. And if I had to take a Khaleel (friend) from my followers, I would certainly have taken Abu Bakr, but the fraternity of Islam is sufficient. Let no door of the Mosque remain open, except the door of Abu Bakr.”

    Shirk practices among Shia


    The Shia have exalted their Imams–including and especially Ali (رضّى الله عنه)–to a level of Shirk (associating partners with Allah). The Shia have granted their Imams a status of gods amongst men. Islam was sent to destroy Shirk in all its forms, and Shirk is considered by Allah to be the gravest of sins.
    • Saying “Ya Ali Madad” is Shirk

      It is Shirk to say such things as “Ya Ali Madad” (O Ali, help us). Indeed, we should only call out with “Ya Allah Madad.” Only Allah and Allah alone can hear and answer our prayers. Thus, we should only go to Him and Him alone for help. We see that the very basic foundation block of Shi’ism is rooted in Shirk.


    • Ali (رضّى الله عنه) or Jesus (عليه السلام)?

      Much like the Christians have exalted the status of Prophet Isa (عليه السلام), the Shia have exalted the status of Ali (رضّى الله عنه). They even draw pictures of Ali (رضّى الله عنه), and we see the similarities between Shi’ism and Christianity, two faiths that exaggerated the status of men. This article contains disturbing (and offensive) pictures, exposing the blasphemy of the Shia.


    • Ali’s Message (رضّى الله عنه) in Nahjul Balagha

      In the Shia’s very own Nahjul Balagha, Ali (رضّى الله عنه) says there will be a group of people whose love for him will lead them away from rightfulness. He further states that a person should “be with the great majority of Muslims.” Who could this be other than the Ahlus Sunnah? It is interesting to see how the Nahjul Balagha itself testifies against the Shia.


    • Turbah: Sajdah to the Imams

      By praying to stones made from the shrines of their Imams and saints, the Shia are practising a polythiestic and paganistic grave-worshipping; they are quite literally making Sajood (prostration) to the Imams or Saints. Indeed, praying to the Turbah of these Imams and saints is Bidah (evil innovation) and Shirk; it is not much different than idol worshipping.


    • Grave Worship

      It is polythiestic the manner in which the Shia go to their shrines and cry next to them, rub them, and pray to them. It is Shirk reminscent of the Jahiliyyah times when the pagan Arabs used to do this. Tawheedullah (the Unity and Oneness of Allah) is the central tenet of Islam, and the Shia are guilty of violating this core belief by engaging in Shirk, which is the absolute major sin in Islam. The main emphasis in Islam is to stay away from Shirk, and yet the Shia embrace practises and customs that foster Shirk.


    • Who Invented Shirk?

      The people of Prophet Nuh (عليه السلام) were the originators of Shirk in the form of idol-worshipping. We see that the Shia have fallen into all the same traps as these people did. The Shia have erected shrines for their Imams and saints. They put up pictures of them and they invoke their names in prayer. Some even do Tasbeeh to their names. They ask their dead Imams and saints for special favors and believe in Waseelah through their Imams and saints.


    • Fatwa On Saying “Ya Ali Madad”

      Official Fatwa from the Permanent Committee and Fiqh Council on those who call for help from other than Allah, using such innovations as “Ya Ali Madad”.


    • Shrines: the Need to Raze Them and Level the Graves

      It is a sad state of affairs that errant Muslims have raised graves, mounted shrines over them, and exalted the dead as was the practise of the pagans before the Call to Islam. Today, Muslims have built huge shrines over the graves of some of the Ahlel Bayt, Sahabah, the righteous people, and others. This has led to the inevitable result of mimicking pagans who worship the dead, either directly or indirectly. There is therefore a necessity to raze to the ground these pagan shrines and to level the graves, as was the Sunnah.
