Brother, by now if you can't see anything wrong with what we have posted I believe this is willful ignorance. I leave you with all the information, references and videos (and there's many more) as Imam Ali (As) tells us who silence is the best reply to.

Salam.

and may Allah Swt guide us all.

[Also, I told you the possibility (and there are probably many other possibilities) of why they would not release him (out of the country), or put him in prison -  they are probably finding more information about him, or want to keep unity amongst Shias and deal with people the way Imam Ali (As) did in order not to cause division.

Sayed Ali Khamenei (Ha) is a smart and aware man. But to assume there is nothing going on and that there is nothing wrong is just plain naive.]

if you think people like yaser habib, tawhidi etc get access to money and publicity by accident then you are naive.

We have to make it very clear to everyone, the shia masses (uneducated ones) and the non muslim masses, that they people do not represent us, and are not from us at all.

How many simple minded shia have been sucked in to their propaganda? We are at risk of becoming like the salafis, were a few personalities can hijack a community and changes its way completely.

While Tawhidi, a Shia imam, has condemned the Islamic State, Jasser told Fox News that he has yet to speak out against Hezbollah and other Shia groups.

Lol. He obviously doesn't know Tawhidi, who will only be too happy to display his 'moderate' credentials by attacking Hezbullah.

On a Salafi forum this thread would never have been locked, and he would never have been invited to speak anywhere again after his views had become known. Yes, the reaction of ShiaChat as a whole has been good, but the fact that someone with such extreme views has any kind of platform to speak at al shows you that there is a deeper problem here. Had he been a bit more clever with his wording, most people would have been a lot more hesitant to call him out on his kufr.

On the one hand, yes.

On the other hand, to have a "hawza" in Australia and Indonesia and to get all this news coverage... simply can't happen without bigger hands at play.

There are very powerful forces at hand propping this man up.

It was the same with Yassir Habib. Remember when ahlul bayt TV, with its vanilla, mainstream inoffensive content, was going through financial trouble? All the while, Fadak TV with its fitnah content and far more limited audience (comparatively) was swimming in dough and churning out programming of a high production value. Obviously the individuals who supported him are complicit but it's more than just them. 

In the case of Tawhidi I imagine he doesn't even have as many followers as Habib. A few dozen, perhaps. That's a drop in the ocean, really. His few dozen sheeple isn't enough to create this media empire.

It honestly made me sick to my stomach when I saw some ignorant internet commenter say that Tawhidi is a hezb supporter. (simply because Tawhidi is a "Shia" extremist and bc the commenter defines Hezb as a "Shia extremist" group).

The news is obviously very deliberate in the way they are framing this. They can't tarnish Hezb without lying so instead they want to throw this guy in the mix and say he somehow represents Hezb worldview.

If Tawhidi had gone the other way, and said things that people felt were lowering the status of the Imams, you can bet that the fatawa, and the insults and the slander and the excommunications would be flying around like there is no tomorrow.

There are examples current examples of this, for example, in Lebanon, there is a shaykh called Yassir 'Awda, he is a rationalist who has spoken against certain practices and beliefs that he feels have no Quranic basis. The mosque that he preaches at doesn't seem particularly big, the only times that his videos get a lot of views is when there is the name of a famous person in the title, or else he barely reaches 1000 views (that is being generous). In spite of this, certain scholars have felt the need to attack him.

Unfortunately this is a reflection of the current state of the Imami madhhab, prayer behind the person who believes in the distortion of the Qur'an is allowed, prayer behind the person who questions certain parts of Ziayarat 'Ashur'a is forbidden.

I dont think he was an agent (although he may want to become one if he isn't one already). I think we underestimate the ease at which gullible people are fooled by people like him.

Although it's not impossible that he has received death threats, I think it's far more likely that he is just attention seeking. If he did receive death threats, then I doubt he was unhappy about it.

Uncle Tom Tawhidi once again exposes his real mission in the following video:

 

The reality is that he is on a kamikaze mission to damage Sunnis in Australia, and is willing to sell out the entire religion in order to do so. No doubt he probably thinks that this will leave the field clear for Shi'ism to spread instead, although I'm not sure he is even thinking at all. Something tells me that he isn't the 'brains' behind this particular strategy, and it's pretty clear that whoever it is that is funding him have sanctioned this plan. I cannot express how much I despise this person. Firstly for the disgusting statements he has made about Allah, and now by trying to make life harder for the average Muslim in Australia by feeding into the worst Islamophobic slurs against Islam and Muslims. He has been exposed in front of Muslims a long time ago, and I pray that it will not be long before Allah also exposes him in front of his new friends.

That is an interesting angle. He is still a leading figure in a particular organisation and they must know about his latest views, and they are not denouncing him. But are they really that competent? Are we giving them too much credit? The Shia community has been so poor in dealing with people like Tawhidi, that I wouldn't be surprised if he gets away with doing things that his backers may not like. They might not even pay attention to him.

I was of the opinion that this is his way of becoming famous (reminds me of another young 'cleric' in the US). He tried to become famous and respected among the Shia and it didn’t work; so he is now trying it by selling his religion.

If he does have Shia backers, then why would they choose him of all people? Why not someone more competent? Maybe his past reduces the damage to Shiism because no one can accuse the hawza of producing such a cleric?

I may not like the salafi aqeedah, but i must say, they would have taken this individual and exposed him years ago. The moment he sent his first backward tweet, they would have all descended on him [intellectually].

Would salafis 'expose' someone who did tajsim? You could probably get away with different things in different communities.

Shias are also less likely to attack other clerics and scholars in public. Salafis have no issue with attacking other sunnis and salafis openly. Their infighting is much worse than ours.

Although we do have some dodgy speakers in the shia community, the problems are a lot less than with the sunnis - especially the salafis. The latter allow anyone with small amounts of knowledge and bad manners to give lectures. At least with the most powerful shia hawzas there are some standards to be met before a person is allowed to preach as a cleric.

The only fact-checking that appears to have been carried out to date concerns Tawhidi's most recent claim that he has been "escorted into hiding by the police." A police spokesperson told the Australian that "there have been no incidents relating to the removal of a person from a mosque or similar place." This did not take any of the wind out of the story's sails, however, and other media outlets quickly went on to state it as fact.

I dont know whether to laugh or cry. 

I think it will be useful if you could somehow dig out a reluable qum based source which exposes him as failing his hawza studies, so is not a sheikh in any sense? Also, I am sure I saw a pic of sayed sadeq shirazi placing an imama on his head. That probably needs explaining too

This is also true brother. On one hand it is very hard for anyone to promote beliefs that they deem 'deviant' [let us not forget they hold deviant beliefs anyway]. On the other hand, they refute one another left , right and centre and there is a ridiculous ammount of infighting among different sub-types of salafi's. It is incredibly easy to go to one group and tell them to make a video or talk about a certain issue, and then they go ahead and accuse another group of being innovators. They really are on a self-destruct path.

Bro, I can walk in tomorrow into any Marjas office and wear a turban (you purchase and bring your own). A certain scholar putting a turban on your head says absolutely nothing about your credibility in the Hawzah. The system is a trust system based on the assumption that a student is humble, thus it is expected that if you are wearing the turban you have a good reason to be doing so. In some other schools or Hawzahs you may be encouraged to wear the turban right when you begin your studies, which once again says nothing about how much you have studied or how reliable of a person you are.

What about the licences he has posted on his website? Should they really be handing such things out like candy?

 Salam, 

I created an account after having enough of the slandering this fake imam has been doing. 

I think both Sunni and Shia brothers should put aside there differences and tackle this grave danger. Why can't leaders from both come together and denounce him in the media? 

I did some research and found that there was a petition for his sacking from a TV channel... Not sure If it is him or if anyone knows more info 

https://www.change.org/p/management-of-imam-hussein-tv-3-request-mohammad-tawhidi-to-be-send-to-disciplinary-board

"Unfortunately, Mohammad Tawhidi has an unstable behaviour and disrespectful "

I don't not speak Persian so not sure what it says there. 

W'salam

:salam:

When I first came to Qom, Mohammad Tawhidi was in my madrassah and I knew him pretty well but shortly after he finished Persian, he put on the turban and clerical clothes and got expelled from al-Mustafa International University and then he began making statements against Sunni figures.

He's a very dangerous individual.

In continuation to this, I want to say though al-monitor is not our trusted source, it was reporting General news and Ayatullah Araki (Ha) did say what he said in regards to the Shirazi's.

Salam,

I'm not sure who is behind Al Monitor, but Press Tv is compromised as well, not everyone there, but the people behind it are definitely compromised, there is a journalist called Brendon O'Connell, he is a brave man, he brought to light some facts about Israel that evidently the Zionists would rather have kept under wraps, and Mosad have come after him, his sister and a friend of his have already died in strange circumstances (after mosad told him that they weren't going to kill him, but they would go after his family) He spend 3 years in an Australian prison, he is currently in exile in Malaysia.

I don't post his videos here because he sometimes uses language that would upset the sensitivities of members of this site, but he has a good story, he is a brave guy.

Anyways, he has contact at Press Tv had agreed to make a documentary using all the evidence that he has collected, apparently it would only have cost 10,000 or so to make, maybe a little bit more, but the money men kept stalling him for nearly 2 years, and eventually, even his contact there told him that the powers behind Press Tv don't want to be the ones to make the documentary. They are also hosted by zionist satellite providers, so there will always be a limit to what they can say.

* I'm not really familiar with the ins and outs of his case, so I haven't done it justice, but you can look into it and you'll see what I mean.

** Apart from that I also know someone who works for Press Tv, he says that behind the scenes, the channel is a total sham.

Wa alaykum assalam brother. Who are the Zionist satellite providers? Press Tv normally speaks free of what is happening around the world and could you please explain to me about these compromises? JazakAllah kheir. :)
