Just look at you own quote and you will realize how unfair you guys are with shias. Forexample you guys follow Abu Bakr after Prophet (as conflict starts after prophet s.a.w) so we call you Bakri but we follow Imam Ali a.s and instead of calling us shias you people impose 'rafadhi' label on us for not taking your leaders after prophet s.a.w!!!
Just one simple question, out of all those names Bakris, Shias, Rafidhi, Salafi, Wahabi, which one was used by Prophet s.a.w for group of muslims in history!!!? (common history not one sided). Answer please
He (Abu Bassir referred to by the Imam as abu Muhammad) said: “May Allah make me your sacrifice. We have been called with a name due to which our backs have been broken, our hearts have been dead, and the governors have deemed lawful to kill us—all for a narration that their scholars have related.”
The Imam (a) said: “You mean Rafidah, do you not?”
He answered: “Yes, I do.”
The Imam (a) said: “No, by Allah. It was not they who named you so. It was, in fact, Allah Who chose this name for you. O Abu Mohammed, have you not known that there were seventy men among the Israelites who rejected the Pharaoh and his people when their deviation had been proved to them? Accordingly, they joined Moses (a) when they knew his having been the right party. Because they rejected the Pharaoh, the party of Moses called them the Rafidah –the rejecters-. They were the best worshippers among the individuals of the party of Moses. Besides, they were the most affectionate of Moses, Aaron, and their descendants.
Then, Allah, Powerful and Majestic is He, ordered Moses, by way of revelation, to record this name for those people in the Torah, for He has chosen it for them. Moses (a) did. Allah then saved this name so as to use it for you.
O Abu Mohammed, the others rejected the good and you have rejected the evil and held fast on the good.
As people went in various directions and separated into different sects, you went in with the household of your Prophet Mohammed (s). You thus opted for what Allah has opted, chosen what Allah has chosen, and wanted what Allah has wanted.
Enjoy the good tidings. Surely, enjoy the good tidings. You are, by Allah, the compassioned ones whose righteous deeds will be accepted and wrongdoings will be overlooked. For him whoever does not come to Allah, on the Day of Resurrection, with the same beliefs that you have, his good deeds will not be accepted and his wrongdoings will not be overlooked.
