  1. Regardless, hypocrites are in the deepest of hell according to the Holy Quran. A lot of people will oppose the al-Qaim (عجّل الله تعالى فرجه الشريف), a lot will pretend to welcome him from fear and hypocrisy etc. but they all will be punished nonetheless. The same was going on during the life of Rasullah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى), where are they now?
  2. Not only that, a lot of self-declared Shias, especially scholars who corrupted the faith, will be killed as well. These narrations can be found in our books. Therefore it’s wajib to remain on the proper religious understanding without deviations.
  3. What a nonsensical statement. There’s no such a thing as “orthodox Sunni Islam”, as Sunnis themselves can’t agree on anything. Even after 1400 years you still argue how to place the hands during the mandatory prayers. Some modern day strains of Sunnism are queitist, while others are not at all. For example, some Sunnis believe in unconditional loyalty to the ruler, no matter how evil or corrupted, while others believe that the ruler can be removed from power if he ruled unislamically. Of course Sunnis love cherry picking in this regard, where they mobilised themselves to overthrow Assad, but
  4. Bab was just a heretic who left Islam and created his own religion. Baháʼu'lláh built upon Babism in turn creating Bahaism. Therefore Iran is completely justified in showing these people their misguided ways. Just as mainstream Sunnis reject Ahmadis, Nation of Islam and others, we reject Babis, Bahais, Ahle Haqq/Yarsanis, Alawites and other misguided people who left the Islamic orthodoxy and adopted their own beliefs. The problem isn’t that these people became heretics, the problem is that they brainwash others into their misguidance.
  5. Kasb as a theological thought was developed by al-Ashari because Sunni Qadar couldn’t withstand logical criticism. Kasb was meant to be something “in between” predestination and free will, while it ended up being criticised as predetermination. It’s a fringe belief among Sunnis, while nearly all subscribed, and still do, to Qadar. Kasb is nothing more than nicely wrapped in confusion Qadar. It is solely a Sunni belief and cherry picking from the Holy Quran doesn’t change anything. Every surah and ayat has a tafsir, they are not to be interpreted literally in support of particular beli
  6. Obsession with “sunnah” while after 1400 years, four madahib can’t even agree on how the Prophet prayed. Wearing head covering is not wajib for men in Jafari fiqh. Besides, we as a muqalids follow individual marja’ in regard to fiqh issues.
  7. There was never such a thing as “Islamic clothing”. Muslim way of dressing depends on geographical region they’ve found themselves in. When you look at Orientalist paintings from 18 and 19 centuries, it’s pretty evident that the clothes worn by Muslims differed considerably based on the geography, personal preferences etc. What’s modest today, wouldn’t be considered such before. Even today for one woman wearing niqab may be a symbol of modesty, while another one may dress more Western. By the way, Muslims of the past used to be relatively tolerant of many aspects of religion that today wouldn’
  8. Sunni belief in predestination (Qadar) eventually leads to denial of Hell (Jahannam) because logically one can’t be punished over his life that was predestined for him at birth. This is a trap that Ibn Sina (“Avicenna”) fell in where after much thought, he rejected the existence of afterlife punishment. Therefore, for example Sunnis reject mourning over Imam Hussein (عليه السلام) martyrdom staring that it was predestined for him at birth. It’s a famous argument used by many Sunnis, including Wahhabis, against (Shia) Muslims. In contrast, orthodox (Shia) Muslims believe in bada’, alternati
  9. What this has to do with what I mentioned? The mosque is still named after the Cathedral’s original name, that’s derived straight from the Christian theology that we do not believe in.
  10. I overall find it funny how after the conversion the mosque is called Hagia Sophia Grand Mosque, while Hagia Sophia - Holy Wisdom - is a concept in Christian theology absent in Islam.
  11. He holds many odd and non-mainstream Shi’ite beliefs. He believes that many Azadari rituals are innovations, that Arbaeen shouldn’t be practised, that maraji’ allegedly accumulate wealth and therefore Khums should be reformed or abandoned, the Imam Mahdi's (عجّل الله تعالى فرجه الشريف) birth is allegedly difficult to prove using rijal and so on. He makes his popularity on making non-issues into issues, thrives on controversies while trying to “reform” the mainstream, orthodox Shi’ite scholarly curriculum.
  12. Prophet Muhammad ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) married a Coptic slave named Maria al-Qibtiyya, Maria the Copt. Imam Hussein (عليه السلام) was married to a Persian slave, Shahrbanu, the mother of Imam Ali ibn Hussein (عليه السلام). The mother of the seventh Imam (عليه السلام) was a Berber slave, et al. Who should we emulate if not the infallible successors? It’s more than clear that the “purity of an Arab bloodline” was not an issue at all, and we talk here about the purified, infallible ones. Berbers, Persians, Copts, Greeks, all were married into the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام). What’s more, they
  13. He was ironic pointing out that unlike Umar, his uncle at least was brave enough to not run away from the battlefield and he died fighting. We have no love for any enemies of Islam. Sahaba were not infallible, many of them turned apostates and innovators, as per Sunni ahadith. Many of them were opportunists and openly declared their hate for the Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام), for example, al-Mughira.
  14. You can’t compare the nasibi and fallible laymen like Bukhari to infallible descendants of the last Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)). One acquire knowledge through learning, the others already possess it. One is sinful and fallible, the others are infallible and Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) appointees on Earth. You take your religion from the first group, we take ours from the latter.
