The Creed Of The Raafidah Regarding the Companions

The Creed Of The Raafidah Regarding the Companions In General

By Shaykh ‘Alee Al-Haddaadee

In the book of Saleem ibn Qays[1] regarding ‘Alee ibn Aboo Taalib he said: “Indeed all of the people (the companions) became apostates after Allaah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه و سلم  except four. Indeed the people came to be, after Allaah’s Messenger صلى الله عليه و سلم, of the status of Haaroon and those who followed him; and of the status of the calf (which they took in worship) and those who followed it. ‘Alee resembled Haaroon and ‘Ateeq (Aboo Bakr) resembles the calf, while ‘Umar resembles Saamiree.”[2]

At-Tustaree, one of their scholars, said: “Just as Moosaa came for guidance, and he guided a great portion of the Children of Israa’eel and other than them, but they became apostates during his lifetime so that none remained upon his faith except Haaroon, upon him be peace; likewise, Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم  came and guided a large portion; however, after his death they turned back on their heels (as apostates).”[3]

Rather, they believe that most of those who openly manifested their Islaam during the lifetime of the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم  only manifested it out of hypocrisy; and that the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم  only accepted their entrance into the ranks of the believers because he was in need of large numbers so that he could be protected by them against his enemies. Hasan Ash-Shayraazee, one of the current day Shee’ah, says: “Indeed it was not to the advantage of the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم  at the inception of Al-Islaam to only accept the sincere ad reject the hypocrites. It was only upon him to gather together all of the rubbish of Jaahilyah in order to place a shield (of protection) around Al-Islaam by way of it from the local and international forces which were openly against him. So he would proclaim: ‘Say: None has the right to be worshipped save Allaah and you will be successful.’ Up to his (Ash-Shayraazee’s) statement: “It was not for the Prophet to reject them; otherwise there would only have remained him, ‘Alee, Salmaan, Aboo Dharr, and a small group from the chosen elite.”[4]

How amazing is this! These people for whom Allaah has attested to as having faith, they (the Raafidah) attest to them as having hypocrisy! Allaah gives them glad tidings of Paradise yet these people say that they are in the fire.     

قُلْ أَأَنْتُمْ أَعْلَمُ أَمِ اللَّهُ وَمَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّنْ كَتَمَ شَهَادَةً عِنْدَهُ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَمَا اللَّهُ بِغَافِلٍ عَمَّا تَعْمَلُونَ

“Say, “Do you know better or does Allaah? And who is more unjust than he who conceals the testimony he has from Allaah? And Allaah is not unaware of what you do.” (Al-Baqarah 2:140)
