They are well-educated but keeping silent and mun about the situation doesn't seem to be keeping people from going astray or doing damage control. The man rubs shoulders with dangerous people (Pauline Hanson and Tommy Robinson), he has disrespected and made accusations about the hawza, is using the platform of hawza to mislead people and calls himself "Imam of Peace" and recently admitted he doesn't respect the Ahlulbayt (as) The time to speak out would be now.

I have been thinking a little more now.

There is an underlying motivation behind every human behaviour. This false sheikh seems to be driven by fame and publicity and probably the illusory power and influence that comes with that. So this is what he wants and what constitutes the reward of his behaviour. 

If the Shia clerics would condemn him in a harsh way in public there would definitely be a lot of fuss and much attention would be given to him. He would be getting the reward that he is seeking and the likelihood of that behaviour in the future will increase.

In CBT psychology (the most influential psychology of today), it is known that when one gives attention to a problematic behaviour the likelihood of the occurance of that behaviour will increase. If the therapist wants to exstinguish a certain behaviour then the therapist ignores that behaviour. The client doesn't get the expected reward and the behaviour decreases with time. 

Maybe our clerics know this about human behaviour and therefor are not giving him what he wants?

What we probably should be doing now is to tell people to stop following him and stop giving him the attention that he wants.

Was just reading lantern of the Path:

The Holy Prophet said, 'Do not sit with every presumptuous caller who summons you from certainty to doubt, from sincerity to showing off, from humility to pride, from good counsel to enmity, and from abstinence to desire. Draw near to the person with knowledge, who summons you from pride to humility, from showing off to sincerity, from doubt to certainty, from desire to abstinence, from enmity to good counsel.' None are fit to preach to creation except that person who has gone beyond these evils by his truthfulness. He sees the faults of speech and knows what is sound from what is unsound, the defectiveness of thoughts, and the temptations of the self and his fancies.

They asked ‘Isa (‘a), 'With whom shall we sit, O Spirit of Allah?' 'With one the sight of whom reminds you of Allah,' he replied, 'and whose speech increases you in knowledge, and whose actions make you desire the next world.'

From Usul al-Kafi:

 قال رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله): إذا ظهرت البدع في امتي فليظهر العالم علمه، فمن لم يفعل فعليه لعنة الله.

Rasulullah (saw) said: If bidah appears in my Ummah then the Alim must make clear his knowledge and one who does not do it then upon hin is the curse of Allah.

How long are we going to let this guy play his stupid games? He's lying about Islam in the guise of a scholar on international tv and its causing trouble, something has to be done. He's made straight up lies, like for example in his interview with Tommy Robinson he aaid Aisha was not a virgin when she married the Prophet (saw) while Sunnis and Shias agree on the opposite... its just stupid. 

I agree that the alims must make their knowledge known, but I believe that the way they choose to do so is very important. 

They could for instance let all their representatives inform all Shia communities and mosques around the globe in a calm manner and inform people how important it is to stop following and giving him attention on social media. 

It's also important that people know exactly why we shouldn't give him attention or cause more publicity around him. In psychology they call this giving a rational as to why we need to behave a certain way. When people understand the rational they more likely follow the orders.

We need to be smart as a community.

I think our Shia community is in a complete mess, I have to be very honest. It all starts from our small communities, and it is our job to not let ignorant people make it to the mimbar. Why do I find videos of Imam Tawhidi giving lectures in an Islamic seminary?  Why did Imam Hussein TV invite him to speak? Unfortunately we have no standards. We need to encourage the youth to form strong committees and be picky when it comes to inviting speakers. Speakers who are charismatic and eloquent are only invited. Money is wasted on a popular speakers who are just invited for some dinner. The priorities of our community need to be reassessed. 

As for Imam Tawhidi, it is our own fault that we gave him a platform to speak. Now he will do everything to spread falsehood. To be fair, he has already said that he is against 99.9% of all Muslim Imams. Also, no Shia community in Australia invites him anymore. All Shias are already against him.

Talking to himself about how birds doing CPR on each other proves evolution is false? No Muslim takes him seriously, it's the right wing anti-islam groups who recognize him as an Imam.

Yes alhamdulillah al-Mustafa university announced he had no Islamic qualifications and warned people not to allow him to give speeches. However that isn't enough. He's giving a warped and false image of Islam to the West, claiming that our "scriptures" endorse violence. Thats the main reason I'd like to see him stopped.

Your right.

The problem stems from having non qualified alims speaking at local centers. In my travels the amount of weird things and strange beliefs and strange practices I have seen is shocking.

Im not saying its something specifically within the shia community, but as we are following the school of the ahl bayt AS, we should be setting higher standards for ourselves.

I agree. It breaks my heart to see the condition our ummah is in. 

It all starts with us. First, we need to be able to differentiate between haqq and batel. And to be able to do that we must know what haqq and batel is. 

To be honest I have seen a couple of horrifying sheikhs IRL, I do not want to tell what they are doing but I am baffled as to how the Islamic communities can allow them to continue what they are doing. 

Some information worth knowing regarding positions of power:

Do you guys know that psychopaths are four times more likely to be found on leadership positions than other positions? They are wolves in sheep clothing. The problem with psychopaths is that the first impression they give is a really good one. They are charming and many times eloquent. When the psychopath also is high in intelligence the disaster is even worse. They are extremely manipulative and dangerous. We need to take measures to stop such people from reaching these positions of power at an early stage. 

I don't know how things roll in the hawza, but I would like to see some obligatory personality assessments perhaps before getting accepted to the hawza and at several stages throughout the educational process.

Does anyone have a link to that?

It was available in his Wikipedia but removed recently 

Tawhidi's critics have dubbed him "Australia's fake sheikh."[14][19] Alex McKinnon, in an opinion piece for The Sydney Morning Herald, claimed his "credentials are tough to verify."[12] The Sunni-based Australian National Imams Council (ANIC) does not recognise Tawhidi as an imam, sheikh or Muslim leader.[12][14][16]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mohammad_Tawhidi

it shows in "British Shi'ism exposed by Islamic pulse"

Thank you. It's possible that the link to the Al-Mustafa International University letter rejecting Tawhidi is on a previous page in this topic, but I am too busy to look for it. I feel sorry for anyone who hasn't heard of him and needs to read all the previous pages in this thread.

ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) quoted the document from Al-Mustafa International University in their online news story a year ago:

Quote

"In spite of given warnings and notifications, the above-named person did not take heed of them each time and had not satisfactory academic record in his courses … he was placed on probation and [dropped] out on March 27, 2012 … the aforesaid person has no educational degree (or any given score) in his profile … Al-Mustafa University does not recommend Mohammad Touhidi for lecturing in any way. Accordingly, he has no competency to do religious activities or to preach sermons."

Imam Tawhidi's poor academic record reflects his ignorance. 

How can a drop out and failure be speaking on behalf of our religion? He has not even studied properly.

It's like I muck around at uni, don't attend tutorials and workshops, skip lectures and do crap in the final exam.

Gosh how stupid of the Australians who support him! May Allah give them aql!

I have just a question about this person. Do there is actually some shias who follow this guy and is there really a marja who gave to him a turban ?

There are always people dumb enough. He did not qualify in any religious science. 

Theres never any point in seeing how many people follow someone, to see if someone is worth following, consider the quality of the people who are following. 

Its like Yasser Habib, he is just an agent and followed only by the most simple minded folk, who are the same calibre as the shia who fell for Muawiya's trick of putting Quran on spears.

He is just favorite person  for Islamophobes & nobody cares about him in shia countries like as iran & Iraq ,wearing Turban doesn't means that a religious office proves you & everybody  can wear it ,people in Torbat jam (a city near to mashhad )use turban as a part of  their costume but nobody counts them as scholars Btw his posts with turban is just for Shias in western countries  but nobody cares about him & he doesn't  has any farsi or Arabic lectures because if he talks with these lAngus eveone will finds out that he doesn't has enough shia islamic science , he even can't basis in english properly but he manipulate words that he no connection to each other

#No2Tawhidi
 #ImamOfFitnah 
How Qualified is Tawhidi?

After al-Mustafa University (who Tawhidi claims he graduated from) exposed Tawhidi saying he has never graduated nor do they endorse (and in fact condemn) him being a public speaker or to represent anyone - Tawhidi seemed desperate to get some sort of certification. This is his prized certificate, have a special place above his head stating the following: 

"Certificate of Qualification
This is to certify that Imam Shaikh Mohammed Tawhidi has achieved the status of a Muslim Scholar and is deemed worthy of Islamic leadership. He is therefore authorised to lead and represent the Muslim community in Australia."

This is signed off by Shaikh Mohammed Zeki Albayati - Chairman of Board of Directors / General Deputy and Representative of the Grand Islamic Jurisdiction and Hierarchy of Scandanavia. 

This was "awarded" and "sealed" by the Al-Huda Islamic Institute of Religious Guidance - Stockholm / Sweden.

This is rather fascinating. Let us discuss.  

1. On what basis can a Swedish institute issue any sort of certification for someone to lead a community in Australia? When has Tawhidi visited or even studied in Sweden? Tawhidi has never even been to Europe!! It seems like simple connections and a phone call will get u a cheap certificate, eh?

2. The "Al-Huda Islamic Institute of Religious Guidance" seems extremely shady. It has no running website (see: http://www.alhuda.se/) and only an Arabic facebook page running (see: http://bit.ly/2hrGM5G).

3. Shaikh Mohammed Zeki Albayati is a representative of Sayed Sadiq Shirazi (see: http://alarabi.se/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/97.png). Sadiq Shirazi is the same person who "crowned" Tawhidi and the same man that Tawhidi continues to praise, show off his picture, and not call out despite promoting Sharia Law. 

4. The "Al-Huda Islamic Institute of Religious Guidance" is, of course, a Shirazi run and funded centre. Amazingly, the centre was established to spread Shia Islam in Europe, as is the mission of the master and teacher of Tawhidi. We quote the official Shirazi website speaking about al-Huda: 

"We at Al-Huda and Imam Hassan Mujtaba institutes, do our best to expand our cultural and religious programs to attract more youths to the doctrine of Shi’a Islam. I need to add that the Shirazi scholars have had a great role in spreading Shi’a Islam in the Western and European countries. The great works of the Shirazi scholars such as the distribution of many religious books and Islamic lectures have made many people to know more about Shia Islam and embrace it. I want the Lord to help the Grand Ayatollah Shirazi in his way of serving Shi’a Islam and make him more successful." (see: http://www.english.shirazi.ir/1941)

You may now be getting the idea of what Tawhidi's mission is in attracting people to his doctrine, no matter what it takes - even lying and making everyone else look bad.

Again, another failed mission with another mickey mouse certification.

Like a khorasani, you have to explain, Tawhidi doesnt have something with Shirazi (ha). Everyone can visit Syyed Sadiq (ha), and to be honest, before "Imam tawhidi" looks more a smart guy, but in the end, he is just a stupid takfiri and doesnt have akhlaq, like yasser alhabib. Sayyed Sadiq reject these guys.
