Report Shia-sufism in Minor Islamic Sects Posted February 17, 2012 · Edited February 17, 2012 by Dawud Miqdad al-Amriki Just leave, nobody cares what you have to say. This thread is for the discussion of these topics with an open mind and for those who WANT to find wisdom in them or question the detractors of the Sufis, not a thread to be thrown cliche rhetoric by scholars we don't even follow. I don't listen to or follow Ayatollah Shirazi and don't care about his opinion. Again, if you are just here to condemn us, LEAVE NOW! Cause now, you are just spamming.I'm quoting hadith bro,One of the first people who used the Sufi during the Islamic era was Abu Hashim al-Kufi who lived during the time of Imam Ja'far al-Saadiq. The imam, peace be upon him, describes Abu Hashim of Kufa as follows:"He is of a severely corrupt Aqidah and he is the one who has innovated a new math-hab called Sufism, which he has made it (his math-hab) as a means to present his devious Aqidah."[sheikh al-Hurr al-Aameli, "Al-Ithna Ashareyyah"; p 33. and "Hadeeqat-ul-Shi'a", p 564.]Imam Redha, peace be upon him says:"No one takes up Sufism except for (the reason of) deception, or misguidedness, or stupidity."[safeenat-ol-Behaar; vol. 2, p 58].In one hadeeth, Imam Hassan al-Askari (peace be upon him) says:"The Sufis are all our opponents and their practice is opposite to ours and in fact they are none but the Christians and Zoroastrians of this Ummah."[safeenat-ol-Behaar; vol. 2, p 58].Why don't you quote some hadith where the Imaams (as) praised Sufism and tasawwuf and Irfan?If you don't have any then why are you defending it and still calling yourself Shi'a?
