Read the Reddit comments to understand what the thread was about, since the post has since been deleted. ....................................................................................... I'm so tired of the utterly nonsensical and VERY COMMON Sunni notion of 'I am happy to seek unity with Shias as long as they don't curse/insult/abuse any Sahaba, and especially NOT Aisha, Abu Bakr, Omar, Uthman. Firstly, any Shia claim regarding the sahabi that happens to go against the Sunni narrative is considered insulting. Secondly, and more importantly, is that the same notion is true for Shias... You are insulting the Ahlul Bayt by not accepting them as divinely appointed leaders of Allah, and infallible individuals, and perfect preservers of the religion of Islam, and a high means of seeking closeness to Allah (intercession). Not only are you insulting revered Shia figures by not following them, you are commiting MAJOR shirk by giving a false attribute to Allah, by saying that Allah has not always appointed an infallible leader on this Earth, and that there currently isn't an infallible leader. Furthermore, the real kicker is that plenty of revered Shia figures, such as Abu Talib (رضي الله عنه), are considered kuffar by Sunnis. Is this not insulting? So, how can we Shias unite with Sunnis based on their own fallacious logic? Shias are the minority, and Sunnis are the majority. It makes Sunnis think that they are Orthodox and that they have to unite with Heterodox for political and humanitarian reasons, and that Shias must make [ridiculous] compromises. Shias are far more receptive to the unity message, because we actually understand Sunni Islam, and can see the commonalities. We understand that we can't make Sunnis compromise on their beliefs. Simply by being the minority within Islam, by nature we Shias already understand Sunni beliefs, whereas Sunnis have a basic strawman understanding of Shia beliefs... which is natural, considering that they are the majority. Anyways, the point of my post is the following: Let's compile a list of revered Shia figures that are not given their proper status by Sunnis, according to Shia Islam... with an explanation given. ...This is to show that we Shias and Sunnis can unite, but we cannot unite upon revered figures and imamah. ...This will also serve as a way of showing Sunnis that this argument of theirs makes no sense. Another important question we may ask is "What about commonly revered figures like Imam Ali (عليه السلام) who is given different status in both sects? Can we unite upon Imam Ali (عليه السلام)?" ...a common Sunni criticism of political unity is that "Ali ibn Abi Talib (رضي الله عنه) is given an improper status in Shia religion because they call upon him... tawassul (intercession) of the 'dead' is Shirk! So there is absolutely no room for unity since we can't even agree on the status of the sahabi" [yes, I am aware that the Imams (عليه السلام) are still alive, but Sunnis don't believe this...] I would love to hear your thoughts. Wassalam. JazakAllah Khair. Fi sabilillah.
Imam Hussain (AS) who did not accept the tyranny of Yazid and his immoral manners, was invited by the people of Kufa [ a city in ancient Iraq]. They asked him to help them and declared their opposition to Yazid's unlawful ruling. But, they did not keep their promises and finally left Imam Hussain (AS)'s representative alone to be martyred by Kufa forces. http://salamislam.com/content/invitation-infidels
Pakistani martyred while safeguarding holy shrines of Imam Naqi and Hassan Askari Pakistani Shia Muslim youth embraced martyrdom for the sake of the holy shrines of Hazrat Imam Ali Naqi al-Hadi (as) and Imam Hassan Askari (as), 10th and 11th infallible leaders of Islam. Javed Hussain had gone to Samarra that is situated in Salah ad Din province in Iraq where the holy shrines of Imam Ali Naqi al Hadi (as) and Imam Hassan Askari are also situated within one premises. The holy shrines are known as Askariyyaen. Following a call from Shia leadership, Javed Hussain, joined the jihad to protect the holy shrines from takfiri nasbi terrorist attacks. He put resistance to the takfiri terrorists in Samarra and sacrificed his life for the sake of sanctity of Ahl-e-Bait (as). Now, Pakistani Shia Muslims take pride in the glorious resistance of Javed Hussain who on behalf of all Pakistani Muslims, joined the jihad-e-kifai and upheld the message of martyrdom of Imam Hussain (as) in Karbala. Namaz-e-janaza of the great martyr Javed Hussain was held in the premises of the holy shrine of Hazrat Bibi Fatima Masooma (as) in Qom, the spiritual capital of Iran where tens of thousands of people offered funeral prayer to pay homage to the great martyr on Friday. Shiites renew their pledge during every Moharram that Abad Wallah Ya Zahra (as) Ma Ninsa Hussaina (as) that means O Great Lady Fatima (daughter of Hazrat Mohammad, Holy and last Prophet and apostle of God) that we shall never forget your son Hussain (as) because of his unmatched resistance to the force of tyranny and despotism and terrorism. This pledge means Shia Muslims shall remain loyal to all the infallible Imams, all from the family of Hazrat Fatima Zahra (as).
