How do Shia view Alawi

Recommended Posts

As a Twelver, I don't agree with them on grounds of theology, but I consider them Muslim and I will give salam to them and show respect to them.
 
I honestly don't get some of the Shi'a (especially the Lana'at centered ones who cry the loudest about Shi'a genocide,Sunni chauvinism in world) who are totally against them. Some of them consider Alawites to be straight up kuffar and even root against them in Syria, ironically thereby fraternizing with the takfiri forces killing the Shi'a and threatening the Lady Zainab Shrine there.

doesn't their theology take them out of the fold of Islam though? I read somewhere that they believe that imam Ali (as) is God. Or something of the like. 

But they are my brothers in humanity, we are human.

How do the Shia view people of Alawi belief? Most Sunni scholars are them as being outside the fold of Islam. 

Salamun alaykum.

Hello,

I am Alawi, and I can say that we do not concider Ali as God. We consider him as an air of God. Powerful and blessed by Allah. Brother of our Prophet (saw). The miracle of birth of Imam Ali in the Kaaba is the reason why we see him as an air of God, but definately not God. SubhanAllah, no way not like that.

I am also Alawi and first of all we believe in that there is no God but Allah swt, Muhammad saas. Is his messenger and Ali as. Is walyullah. I agree with you. All the information the people got about us is wrong, they just want to break the unity of ahlubayt lovers.

Salam brother,

 

Part of the reason for our ignorance is that there really is no reliable/informative website on alawism. Is there a reason why this is the case?

 

Thanks

 

Salman

"Their theology is based on a divine triad,or trinity, which is the core of Alawite belief.The triad comprises three emanations of the one God: the supreme aspect or entity called the "Essence"or the "Meaning" (both being translations of maʿnā), together with two lesser emanations known as his "Name" (ism), or "Veil" (ḥijāb), and his "Gate" (bāb).These emanations have manifested themselves in different human forms over several cycles in history, the last cycle of which was as Ali (the Essence/Meaning), Muhammad (the Name) and Salman the Persian (the Gate).Alawite belief is summarised in the formula: “I turn to the Gate; I bow before the Name; I adore the Meaning.”"

 

I don't know what Shia's actually think of this, but islamically this looks like straight up shirk.

Alawi are arab bloodline Seyyid or house of Ahlibeyt 

Shia are followers of Ahlibeyt basically converts of sunni after Shah ismail

Anatolian Alevis are different than alawi 

 

We believe in Hakk Muhammed Ali 

Allah The greatest Hz Muhammed the messenger and Ahlibeyt the imams

How do shia's view Turkish alevi's?

Turkish alevi's don't consider fasting ramadan nor preforming salat to be obligatory. I always was taught that rejecting one of the five pillars led to automatic kufr.

Again brother nobody is right or wrong, its a belief.

Sunni five day prayer is Zoroastrian though,  

We do Salat to Allah, we do cem (which is community gathering, teaching, giving food to ppor etc) and than we have Semah (Not everyone can enter this, you have to pass 4 doors and 40 levels, Seriat, Tarikat, Marifet and Hakikat

We have lots of fasting Muharem Asure, etc, we do 3 days in ramazan though because  Hz Huseyin was martyrd by yezid, so in Quran verse NISA 92, if you "kill" someone you have  to do 60 day fasting, so yezid after he martyrd Hz Huseyin, he did 60 himself, than enforced onto his soldiers, and than forced 30 days on to the community. So Alevis did not do 30 days but 3 days.

Don't also forget, you fast only by Zahir, we do both Zahir and Bāṭiniyyah too which is spiritual level fasting.

You should try to do good everyday not just 30 days.

They are considered non muslims since they pray for imam ali not Allah

That is not true, we blended in Tengri with Islam

@AleviTurkmenKhorasan and @YaAli313madad, why not make a wix.com website about Alawism and Alevism? It's pretty simple.

Alawism and Alevi is different

I know. You are Alevi and YaAli is Alawite. I am saying you should make seperate websites informing people about your beliefs.

    • By the way, do you have any good experience (I don't mean you took a certain module or class in medical school on behavioral health but then became a professional in an unrelated field like cardiology or something like that) or are involved in the behavioral health field? If so then I don't need to lecture you on the fact  that cases like abuse or forcing a certain lifestyle on someone (ironically sometimes there is consent from the other party on the new lifestyle being pushed on them) are not things that spontaneously occur and often times have complex psychological variables behind them.   Your anecdotes may suggest otherwise, but I know of anecdotes where on the surface it appeared that the man was "forcing" his wife to become a housewife and abandon her career. Since from the perspective of some but not all feminist Muslim women they cannot believe that a woman is willing to give up on a career and become a housewife, so they resort to calling the hubby oppressive and insist he is forcing something on his wife. But in the cases I know of if you look more closely without any bias it was evident that there was a decent amount of willing consent on the wife's part and the "force" element was not really there and at most the hubby acted "suggestive" but the whole decision to abandon her career was largely the wife's decision regardless.    And heck even sometimes just as how a husband might backbite his wife to his community and friends to gain their sympathies due to him being sick of his wife, sometimes the same thing can occur in reverse if the wife feels she will gain some genuine sympathy.   Even if a person is your best friend and you visit her house every weekend there are things that you don't know and may not ever know about her marital relationship and that knowing these things may change the picture completely. So I would advise to not rush to hasty conclusions. That is not to say that there are not genuine cases of abuse and force in marital relationships, but that there is no greater epidemic of it due to complexities in relationships. Again, if you are involved or have good experience in the field of behavioral health then I don't think I need to tell you this. 
    • That's exactly the point, I explicitly typed above the concept of a miracle: An extraordinary and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore attributed to a divine agency. Yes, they have been documented by historical excavations, well, some. Are you referring here to the primitive senses? Most of the records of the ancient world, used to think that earth was a flat piece of land/disk. Today this contradicts many laws (e.g Gravity). https://www.popsci.com/sites/popsci.com/files/styles/655_1x_/public/earth_from_the_iss.jpg?itok=mDRiVgnr Even refraction of light wasn't known much, other than seeing it, it was not known as a physical concept when light refracts from a plane. Snell's law for example was not perceived by the senses, rather Mathematics through an equation which was: (index of refraction1)*(Sin[theta]1)= (index of refraction2)*(sin[theta]2). Was this through primitive senses? I don't think so. Even the rotation of the Sun, it clearly was never thought it moved, rather that Earth rotates (after the discovery) around Sun ONLY. Solar/Lunar Eclipse defined this. Even the fact that their planetary orbits are not perceived by the senses.  Senses are limited.
    • Yes good! When Dawkin will be sent to Hell, he will feel that someone is playing Hallucination on him. Very good. I want to see him passing these theories there. "Deaf, dumb, and blind,
      They will not return (to the path)." Quran (2:18)
    • Tafakkur is a deed. Surah Aal-e-Imran, Verse 190:
      إِنَّ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَاخْتِلَافِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ لَآيَاتٍ لِّأُولِي الْأَلْبَابِ Most surely in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day there are signs for men who understand.
      (English - Shakir) Surah Aal-e-Imran, Verse 191:
      الَّذِينَ يَذْكُرُونَ اللَّهَ قِيَامًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَىٰ جُنُوبِهِمْ وَيَتَفَكَّرُونَ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ رَبَّنَا مَا خَلَقْتَ هَٰذَا بَاطِلًا سُبْحَانَكَ فَقِنَا عَذَابَ النَّارِ Those who remember Allah standing and sitting and lying on their sides and reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth: Our Lord! Thou hast not created this in vain! Glory be to Thee; save us then from the chastisement of the fire:
      (English - Shakir) You can see brother, dhikr & tafakkur are deeds. Salat (prayer) is also a form of dhikr, Quran is dhikr. Surah Taha, Verse 14:
      إِنَّنِي أَنَا اللَّهُ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا أَنَا فَاعْبُدْنِي وَأَقِمِ الصَّلَاةَ لِذِكْرِي Surely I am Allah, there is no god but I, therefore serve Me and keep up prayer for My remembrance:
