I was searching web for the phrase "Shia Islam" and unexpectedly I found an image saying Shias are not Muslims!!
It was in a website from DAESH (ISIS) that are roots of terror in the world and destroyed the human face of Islam. DAESH people are Wahhabis, the followers of Bani Ummayyah who killed Imam Hussein (as), grand son of the Prophet Muhammad (sawa) and master of the youth of Heaven.
Now these wild and ugly-face people say that Shia are Kafir! So funny.
Shia believes in Allah and prophecy of Muhammad (sawa). They also believe in the day of Judgement. They pray towards Kaba and have the same Quran as other Muslims. So they are Muslims. Furthermore there are a lot of documents in Sunni books which say Shia are right. If you read historical books and some correspondence between scholars of Shia and Sunni, e.g. AlMurajiat or Nights of Pishavar you will simply find the truth. ValiAsr website has a lot of proof for Shia from Sunni sources.
Tabarani, a Sunni scholar says in his book Mujam AlOsat that prophet said: O Ali, you and your Shias are in the Heaven.
Previously in this blog, five simple proofs for Shia are provided (+) Also one of several Quranic reasons for Shia Islam is provided here: Shia Proof from Quran. Moreover hundreds of proofs can be found searching the web for the words Proof of Shia Islam or Why Shia is True...
Dear Muslims or Non Muslims who are trying to find the truth about Islam, PLEASE research before decision. READ Islamic books like Quran, Nahjulbalagha and Historical books directly not from unknown weblogs or unreliable sites. Moreover, note that Shia countries like Iran never started a war against other countries, and never conducted terrorist attacks against peaceful people. Note that all terrorist groups currently active in the world of Islam like DAESH, ALSHABA, ALQIDA, ALNUSRA, ... are Sunni extremist or Wahhabis not Shia. Open your eyes and be careful. Western media want to corrupt the face of Islam, so they create, grow and support terrorist groups within Muslims and they never say good news about Shia Muslims so that the axis of resistance against arrogance and Israel be weakened.
Sami Yusuf, Islamic singer, releases his haunting new debut single “Inna Fil Jannati” from his new album Barakah (scheduled for release 01 Feb 2016). This beautiful traditional Islamic piece and poem is about the love for the Ahl al-Bayt (or household of the Prophet [pbuh]). In a narration (Bihar AlAnvar, V 44, P 194) from the prophet, its said that this poem is narrated by Gabriel for Imam Hassan (as) and Imam Hussein (as), sons of Fatiam (sa) while they were in cradle. Surely, a river of milk flows in heaven For the sake of Ali, Hussein, and Hassan Whosoever loves them Enters Paradise without sadness Love of #AhlulBeyt (prophets family) is obligatory to us And with this love we do not fear tribulations
إن فی الجنّة نهرً من لبن لعلیٍّ و حسینٍ و حسن کلُّ من کان مُحبً لهمُ(و) یَدخُل الجنّةَ من غیرِ حزن حبُّ اهلِ البیتِ فرضٌ عندنـا وبهذا الحبِّ لا نَـخشی المِحَنْ
Listen to this song from Sami Yusuf, Islamic Singer.
Dec-2-2015 is Arbaeen of Imam Hussein. I hope this year, western media send some reporters to see what is happening in Iraq during these days. Millions of Shia Muslims are traveling on foot towards Hussain from hundreds of kilometers away; but almost no TV channel or News site talks about it. Why? Because they think that this kind of Islam will change the world and if it is spread around the world and people know Who is Hussain, Capitalism will be diminished and Islam will be extended throughout the world...
Some Records for Arbaeen of Imam Hussein (as):
The largest annual gathering in the world (about 20 million pilgrims)
The longest continuous dining table (about 500 km)
Largest number of people fed for free
Largest group of volunteers serving a single event
Longest travel on foot (from 80 km to 500km and more)
There are a lot of campaigns in the world; most of them for physical human needs and a little for the sake of Allah. Who is Hussain is such campaign which is created for spiritual purposes. They influenced by the sacrifice of Imam Hussein, the third Imam of Shia Muslims, in the day of Ashura.... The campaign is introduced as follows:
Who is Hussain is a global organization dedicated to letting the world know about an inspirational man who lived fourteen-hundred years ago. A man called Hussain.
We aim to inspire people through the timeless example of Hussain and bring positive change in the world we live in. Our reps and volunteers organise events to give back in their local communities, ranging from blood donation drives to feeding the homeless and much more.
You can join this campaign by sharing their resources, by donating them or by involving in their events (Involve in WhoIsHussain Campaign). I hope this campaign to change the view of the world for the terms Ashura, Shia and Muharram.
Every time I look at Google for the word Ashura or Ashoora, I see lots of bloody photos of people who are flagellating themselves with chains of blades, sword, knife or other sharp metal things! Now the question is that:
Is Self Flagellation in Ashura Legal in Shia Religion?
Is this the truth about Shia and Ashura? That means do all the Shia Muslims flagellate themselves during Ashura? It seems so crazy and unbelievable, since I am a Shia Muslim and I never did it and never see somebody flagellate himself during Ashura in our Shia cities during my life! So why Google shows these Images in its first page and why it never filters them while they contain violent and rough images.
Answer is so clear. Google doesn't like Shia thoughts to be spread throughout the world. Google is under supervision of Zionists and it is not acceptable for them that Shia, the religion of resistance and the true enemies of Israel (e.g. Hizbullah, Iran, Yemen, Syria, Iraq) have a good face in Google results! So it shows images of Hindu men that believe in No Pain, No Gain and mutilate themselves in Muharram procession!
Most of those people flagellating themselves are Hindu, not Shia. Self-flagellation is forbidden in Shia according to Fatwas of their grand Ayatollahs like Imam Khamenei and Aytullah Sistani (http://Tatbir.org )
Imam Hussein (as) introduced some reasons of his uprising in a testament letter to his brother Muhammad Hanafiah:
I did not come out seeking to do evil, nor seeking to have fun, nor seeking corruption nor oppression. Rather, I came out seeking reform in the nation of my Grandfather. I want to enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong.
