Claim: Shia are rafidis (rejectors), apostates from Islam, and deserve to be executed.

Claim made by: Abdullah ibn Jibreen, Saudi right winged politician, as well as the IslamQA.info admin


There is nothing in the Qur'an which commands a Muslim to go and kill another Muslim. The fatwa contradicts the Qur'an, with proof provided below. Based on the information provided below, the "fatwa" is definitely politically motivated, as it relies on the word of a Saudi politician who had to recruit militants for the Afghan-Soviet conflict. There is very little reason to believe in it.

It is important to note that IslamQA.info is an anti-Muslim hate site.

The quote on the site is coming from Shaykh ‘Abdullah ibn Jibreen, who was a Saudi right wing politician known for praising and inspiring well known terrorists, such as Turki al-Binali, a senior member of ISIS. Abdullah ibn Jibreen wrote a recommendation letter for Binali for attending the Islamic University of Medina, praising his "commitment to learning" [1].  According to a Guardian article written by David Pallister, Jibreen also suggested the Saudi establishment fund the Taliban. 

In 2007, at the height of the Shia genocide, Jibreen referred to Shias as "heretics", the "most vicious enemy of Muslims", and recommended that Shias be driven out of their homes so "Muslims may be spared of their evil". This reflects a long pattern of Saudi right winged politicians villifying Shia Muslims (Source). 

The fatwa also writes, "May Allah preserve him" regarding the sheikh making the fatwa. The Qur'an, in 4:93, says "But whoever kills a believer intentionally - his recompense is Hell, wherein he will abide eternally, and Allah has become angry with him and has cursed him and has prepared for him a great punishment.". This means that Allah is angry with those who believe in Jibreen's fatwa posted on IslamQA.info, and will reside in hell eternally. Unfortunately, Jibreen's fatwa continues to inspire many Muslims to kill other Muslims from within the grave.

Further, Qur'an 4:29 says " O believers! Do not devour one another’s wealth illegally, but rather trade by mutual consent. And do not kill ˹each other or˺ yourselves. Surely Allah is ever Merciful to you. ". May Allah save Ahl-us-Sunnah from the worst. Ameen.

On the topic of takfir, the Qur'an in 4:94 says " O believers! When you struggle in the cause of Allah, be sure of who you fight. And do not say to those who offer you ˹greetings of˺ peace (Salam), “You are no believer!”—seeking a fleeting worldly gain.1 Instead, Allah has infinite bounties ˹in store˺. You were initially like them then Allah blessed you ˹with Islam˺. So be sure! Indeed, Allah is All-Aware of what you do. "

The fatwa erroneously claims that Shias believe Ali ibn Abu Talib to be a "lord" and "creator" of the universe. This is false. Shias do not believe Ali ibn Abu Talib is the creator of the universe. The Shia belief is that Allah created the universe, as is written in the Qur'an.  

With regards to the "rafidi" claim, rafidi means "rejector", and Shias wholly reject and condemn terrorism. This part is accurate.


Rating: Abdullah ibn Jibreen, IslamQA.info, and their fatwa do not share respect for Islam, as they contribute to the genocide of Shia Muslims in various parts of the world.



[1] The source for this statement is bin Ali's own testimony written in a Daesh publication, which I have omitted to prevent complications for the reader.
