Are Shia Kafir?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Salaamo-Aleykum dear brothers and sisters. Those people who start with the headline, ARE SHIA KAFIR? or believe that the Shias are out of the fold of Islam need to take a look at the following information:

Hadith Praising the Shias of 'Ali (A.S.)

Hadith in which the Prophet (pbuh) praised Ali (as) and his Shia can be found in many classical Ahle Sunnah texts, and have even been recorded by scholars like Ibn Hajar al Makki in their books written against the Shia. For the sake of brevity I will cite just a handful of traditions to prove my point.

It is in praise of the Shia of Ali (as) that Allah sent down the following revelation:

"Those who believe and do righteous deeds are the best of the creatures. Their reward from their Lord shall be everlasting gardens, below which flow rivers, they will abide there forever. Well pleased is God with them and they are well pleased with Him" (Qur'an 98:7)".

Muhammad bin Ali narrates in Tafsir ibne Jarir, Volume 33 page 146 (Cairo edition) that the Prophet (pbuh) said "The best of creations are you Ali and your Shias."

Jalaladin Suyuti, (849 - 911 AH) is one of the highest ranked Sunni scholars of all time. In his commentary of this verse, he records through 3 asnad (chains) of narrators, that the Prophet (pbuh) told his companions that the verse referred to Ali and his Shia:

"I swear by the one who controls my life that this man (Ali) and his Shia shall secure deliverance on the day of resurrection".

(Tafseer Durre Manthur Volume 6 page 379 (Cairo edition)

The 3 Sahaba who narrated this hadith are (1) Ali (as) himself (2) Jabir bin Abdullah Ansari (ra) (3) Abdullah ibne Abbas (ra). The majority school acknowledges them as truthful narrators of hadith. Had this been in a Shia book, you would have deemed it a forgery, but it's presence in your book has really confused your scholars.

There are no hadith in which the Prophet (s) guaranteed paradise for a specific Sahaba and his followers, with the sole exception of Ali (as) and his Shia.

Other Sunni scholars have also recorded this hadith from Jabir bin Abdullah Ansari in their commentaries of the above verse.

[Tafsir Fatha ul bayan Volume 10 page 333 (Egypt edition) & Tafsir Fatha ul Qadir, Volume 5 page 477]

Hadhrath Abdullah ibne Abbas narrates "that when this verse descended the Prophet (s) said,

'Ali you and your Shia will be joyful on the Day of Judgement" (Tafseer Durre Manthur Volume 6 page 379 (Cairo edition)

Ahmad ibn Hajr al Makki quotes from Imam Dar Qatany in his al Sawaiqh al Muhrriqa page 159 (Cairo edition) "O Abul Hasan, you and you Shi'a will attain paradise".

Ibn Hajr al Makki in his anti Shia book, Sawaiqh al Muhriqa, records this tradition from Imam Tabarani:

"O Ali four people will enter heaven first of all. Me, You, Hasan, and Hussain, your descendants will follow us and our wives will follow our descendants and our Shia will be to the left and right of us".

Hadhrath Ali narrates in Tafsir Durre Mansur, Volume 6 page 379 (Cairo edition) that Rasulullah (s) said to him:

"Have you not heard this verse "Their reward from their Lord shall be everlasting gardens, below which flow rivers, they will abide there forever"? This verse refers to you and your Shia, I promise you that I will meet you at the Fountain of Kawthur".

The classical Shafii scholar al Maghazli records a tradition from Anas bin Malik that he heard the Prophet (s) say:

"Seventy thousand people will go to heaven without questions, the Prophet then turned to Ali and said 'they will be from among your Shia and you will be their Imam"

Manaqib Ali al Murtaza, page 184 by al Maghazli al Shafii.

Those people who believe that Shias are Kafirs or who doubt about their status I want them to check out this information. Wassalaam.

Shias are not kafir brother. We belive Allah as the one and only LORD and Muhammad (pbuh ) as his last prophet - NOT UMER (L).

And we do not take half of our religion from renegade women such as Aisha and liars and fornicators such as Yazeed and the rest of Banu Ummaya.

Nice try :)

We (the shias) say that the prophet and the 12 imams are infalliables.......... however if the ahle sunnah doesnt believe that the imams are not infallible then alright...... but what about the sunnis who say that the best human that was and will be [Muhammad-e-Mustafa (saws)] has made sins or mistakes during his life (astghfirullah)

It doesn't make sense if the prophet (pbuh) has made mistakes then why does everybody (sunni and shia) say he is the best person of all mankind??

There are even sunnis who say the other prophets (pbut) used to marry 11 women to a maximum and our prophet (saws) has married 11 women and he has 3 extra mistress......... The prophet married these women for a reason which only he and Allah(swt) know......... but accusing him as to having mistress do u think you (ahle sunnah) are on the right track...........?

i would rather be a "kaffir" and join the hell where sunni say hazrat abu talib (as) will go, rather than the heaven they say abu sufiyan (LA) will go

On the contrary. Those who believe the Prophet (pbuh) is NOT infallible are majorly deviated.

How dare you lower the status of the Prophet (pbuh) so much?

Don't say that. Watch your words when it comes to Rasulullah SAW. No Muslims believe that Rasulullah SAW sinned. Rasulullah SAW is masum.

Brother, I have heard Ahadith from Sunni books in which the Prophet (as) sins! It is not us who say this, it is you.

error and sin are two different things . all sins are error but all errors are not sin.

You contradicted yourself. Infallible means incapable of error.

yes, infallible means incapable of error but which "error" . as, a muslim i believe that all prophets did not do any error to preach the message of Allah to the people. but if we see the example of adam we find that

" In the Garden of Eden, Iblis (later known as Shaytan) lured Adam and Eve into disobeying God by tasting from the forbidden tree. God, as a punishment, sends Adam and Eve out into the rest of the earth"

it means that prophet do errors not in conveying the message of Allah , but in other matters .so, whevever i say prophet is infallible it does not mean that he was free of all type of errors like Allah .

First of all is this a verse from the Quran? Does it say in the Quran that Hazrath Adam [as] disobeyed Allah? Would you kindly shed some light on this and put some references forward?

no ur 12th imam is ur last prophet and all shiites believe that they will be raised in qayama with their 12th imam instead of prophet muhammad (saw) .

Shakir

Then they both ate of it, so their evil inclinations became manifest to them, and they both began to cover themselves with leaves of the garden, and Adam disobeyed his Lord, so his life became evil (to him). quran (20:121)

Who says that our last imam is gonna be hazrath muhammad (pbuh)??? And whoever says that its wrong........ otherwise we would support the idea of reincarnation just like the hindus....

Firstly get ur facts right......the last imam (as) is gonna be from hazrathe muhammad-e-mustafa's (pbuh) blood line....... if u say u shiites believe that or this do u have prove........ where in najal balgha or strong shia hadith's does it mention that the last imam (as) is hazrath muhammad (pbuh)????

Let me just give a piece of advice, never generalise your opinion on everybody, because every human is unique and everyone has their own beliefs........if we believe in the imams then let us....... and we let you believe in the caliphas.... at the end of the day everyone has to answer for themselves and not for each other.......

Adam is a totally different topic and not a relevant example. Adam was not preaching, there were no humans to convey a message to, nor did this event took place in the realm we live in, hence he wasn't given the title as Prophet yet. An individual becomes a Messenger when there is a message to convey to humans, this event took place prior to human existence (except Adam) hence he logically wasn't a Prophet yet.

Can't compare his example to use against other Prophets.

No Umer is your last prophet. Umer brought so much changes in Shariah that he must be your last prophet. Foolish analysis.

    • salam brother. i read the questions you posted to your scholars and to be honest, you hit the nail on the head. these are exactly some of the questions i am looking answers for, and not just from shias. very similar questions apply to sunni literature as well. did you get any response to the questions where you were told that it is better to answer you in person? it would be really really helpful if you did.
    • Brother this was a very nice argument you gave, I am also curious what if The Prophet is Rasoolullah [sawa] and Eijah is Imam Ali [as]?    Of course brother  you know any sites that I can contact Ayatollahs/Allamas?  
    • Believing in oneself more than belief in God is proud and lowering status of Allah which is kufur.
    • 1. To die as a Momin since one this whole world is of no use, I want to die as man of belief and principles. 2. This world is a trap, I would be cautious to take every step as many before me had fallen into it and therefore, I will try my best not to usurp anyone's rights and fall into this wicked trap and Hope Allah AWJ for the sake of Ahlebait will prevent me from anything which is harmful for my Akhirat. 3. The sense that since many good who had power and will to achieve this world kicked her and preferred Allah, I should do the same for separation of Allah is irreparable. 4. To help the needy in whatever way I can. Bring people together, if get job should focus on teaching youth the real way of obtaining education. Write some books and be an expert in some field that if Imam wants me, I could be of use to him. 5. Jahl is my worst enemy, he always comes with incites and leaves in humiliation. So, I remember it's nature to repel it.  6.I want to die in a momin and ask Allah that you know better what is good for me and easier for me. 7. Revolution is not Iranian or Iraqi. Revolution is Islamic and I am trying my best to minimize corruption and maximise morals, ethics and love. 8. Money is good as said by Prophet if one utilises it in a way that is meant for it. A portion of money is for our brothers in faith and Allah and a portion for us. Life is gift that we received without any service and it shows God is beneficent and gives without asking. Life is source of His love and Marifat.
    • Refer to Ulemas. They'll give you best arguments.
