Rafidi was a term which was applied to shias in the early years and when one of the companion of Imam Jafar al Sadiq a.s told it to Imam and got disappointed. Imam a.s said that Rafidi means those who deny and it is a good name as you deny the untruth. So, after this Shias do not got disappointed by the hate terms.

I consider it a personal badge of honor to be called a Rafidi.

If I'm known as rejecting the first 3 Khalifas as well as their teachings due to my belief that the rightful heir was Imam Ali (AS) then I am exactly that. A 100% Rafidi.

They said: We believe in the Lord of the worlds, The Lord of Musa and Haroun.

Firon said: Do you believe in Him before I have given you permission? Surely this is a plot which you have secretly devised in this city, that you may turn out of it its people, but you shall know:

They said, "Never will we prefer you over what has come to us of clear proofs and He who created us. So decree whatever you are to decree. You can only decree for this worldly life. And Allah is better and more enduring."

For Anti Shia Sunnis its the biggest attacking insult that they can throw at us.

It must be rankling the ones that are silently monitoring this thread and finding out how much pride Shia take in being called Rafidi

I'm sure they'll get frustrated and start a thread on their forums...:hahaha:

    • Hmm not sure what you mean brother. But the chaos in middle east, that we have seen in recent years, the unstable state of government and nations surrounding israel is not a conspiracy and the growth of israel over occupied land and its increased influence and involvement in the chaos is not a conspiracy either.  
    • From a moral perspective i can understand this. However, i know hardly anything about politics and millitary strategies. I am sure sayyid Nasrallah (may Allah bless him) knows what he is doing. But surely, by empowering and protecting palestinians, who in turn decide to join ISIS and our enemies, we are kind of damaging ourselves? A bit like an own-goal.

    • Salam brother, If you want to be a shia of imam Ali(as), then it is better you take after his akhlaq, he had respect for the the wife of the Prophet(S) as shown in the battle of Jamal, lets also have some level of respect in honor of our 1th Imam(as) and our Prophet(S) and let Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى be the judge.
    • ـ الإمام الصادق (ع): امتحنوا شيعتنا عند ثلاث: عند مواقيت الصلوات كيف محافظتهم عليها ، وعند أسرارهم كيف حفظهم لها عن عدونا ، وإلى أموالـهم كيف مواساتهم لإخوانهم فيها. Imam al-Sadiq (AS) said, ‘Test our Shi`aa with regard to three things: the prayer times to see how well they observe them, their secrets to see how well they guard them from our enemies, and their wealth to see how they help out their fellow brothers with it. [Bihar al-Anwar, v. 83, p. 22, no. 40]
