Imam Ahmed Raza Academy – Deviant Sects and Scholars: Final Word

Our African Muslim brothers ought to rise up against Shia’ism in the townships. The first African Muslim in Islam was Sayyiduna Bilal (radi Allahu anhu) who was not only a brave soldier, but also one who was subject to the harshest persecution for accepting Islam. The greatest amongst the Companions of Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) was Sayyiduna Abu Bakr Siddique (radi Allahu anhu) who purchased Sayyiduna Bilal (radi Allahu anhu) as a slave and freed him to please Almighty Allah and His Rasool (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). The Shias have branded this great personality an apostate and accursed one. (Allah forbid) The great African Continent is full of Sunni Muslims. The Irani Shias have now embarked on a campaign to bribe the poorer African Muslims to corrupt their beliefs and convert them to Shias.

This is the message of Sheik Shazili on the ocassion of Yaum-e-Siddique Akbar. Sheik Shazili who is deeply involved in Islamic Propagation work in the African townships, has pointed out that African townships in the Cape and the Transvaal have been specifically targeted by the Shias as areas for potential converts. The modus operandi of the Shias is to single out the sincere but poor members of the African Muslim Community and bribe them with wealth to bring them into the ugly Kufr fold of Shia’ism. This state of affairs is certainly unacceptable to our Sunni Muslims and it provides a specific challenge to our Dawah workers on the field. In the past, there were no Shias in South Africa. After the Iranian Revolution and the 1994 South African elections, a flurry of activity emerged from the Shia propagation machine to spread this Kufr sect in South Africa. Wealth is outlayed blatantly to attract Sunni Muslims to the Shia fold and we have received unconfirmed reports that certain Sunni Ulema had accepted invitations from the Shias to attend their functions. 

The new South Africa has certainly allowed many new sects to emerge amongst the Muslims and the Iranian influence is another destructive force that awaits the unsuspecting Muslims in South Africa.It is now imperative for all Muslim Institutes to face the challenges of the Shia onslaught and present openly to the African Muslims the vile and Kufr beliefs of the Shia sect in the townships. Provisions must now be made to organise Siddique-e-Akbar Day and Khulafaa-e-Rashideen Day in the townships on a large scale in an attempt to preserve the Imaan of the people whom the Shias are targeting.

Iran’s Islamic Revolution was supported with much zest and vigour mainly because it was seen as the opening of the doorway to much needed changes in the world. Sadly, this was not to be. After the dust has settled, realisation dawned that this was merely a dream which had not been fulfilled. Iran’s claim to the title of an Islamic Republic was forfeited because it is essentially a Shia Republic.

Moreover, the late Dr. Kalim Siddiqui, who was initially a great enthusiast of Iran’s Revolution, later comprehended the gloomy reality and admitted to his change of hearts. Most readers and patrons of Dr. Kalim’s writings were of the opinion that Dr. Kalim is unequivocally a champion of the Iranian movement. They are not aware of the developments that took place during the last stages of his life.

Initially, Dr. Siddiqui devoted all his energy to Iran’s struggle as he believed that it would give Islam a strong foothold on the international level. Furthermore, the force of Sunnism will be greatly strengthened. During Imam Khomeini’s reign Dr. Kalim was rewarded with the respect and honour that he deserved. However, his recent tour to Teheran became a torturous one. Fanatic Shias who saw Dr. Siddiqui’s visit as a campaign to spread Sunnism felt greatly threatened by his presence. They felt that he was there to censure Shia’ism and challenge its teachings. They became extremely defensive and hostile towards him. In his agitation he responded, “I am not a fan of either your culture or your discourse. I am here only because of your alleged claims to be an Islamic Republic. Had I known the truth I would never have come.” Milli Times International, Delhi, India (June 1996)

Please study this narration:

As narrated by Sayyiduna Jabir bin Abdullah (radi Allahu anhu):

A villager came to Sayyiduna Ali (radi Allahu anhu) and asked, “O Ameer-ul-Mumineen! Is Abu Bakr (radi Allahu anhu) in Paradise?”

This question hurt Sayyiduna Ali (radi Allahu anhu) considerably. So he said, “I wish I had never come to the world. This statement has never been made by anyone else before, neither by Rasulullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) nor by any other Muslim after him. Abu Bakr Siddique (radi Allahu anhu) was always with the Messenger of Allah; he was his vizier and counsellor. He succeeded him as the Khalifa after his passing away. He who denies this fact will become a disbeliever. O villager! Sayyiduna Abu Bakr Siddique (radi Allahu anhu) sent for me towards his passing away. He said to me, ‘O my darling brother! I am going to pass away soon. When I die, wash me with those blessed hands of yours with which you washed the Messenger of Allah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam)! Wrap me in my shroud and put me in my coffin! Take by corpse to the entrance of Hujra-i-sa’adat! Say unto Rasulullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam): Abu Bakr is at the door. He asks for permission to enter.’

“When Abu Bakr (radi Allahu anhu) passed away, I did whatever he had told me to do. When we put his coffin in front of the door of the Hujra-i-sa’adat and I asked for permission, we heard a voice saying, ‘Bring the darling near the darling.’ Therefore, we buried Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radi Allahu anhu) besides the Messenger of Allah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).”

It is stated in a Hadith Shareef that Rasulullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: “Fear Allah as you talk about my Ashaab! Fear Allah lest you should show any disrespect in a conversation about my Ashaab! After me, never have a bad opinion of them. He who loves them does so because he loves me. And he who bears hostility towards them is my enemy.”

    Assalamo Alaikum

    I am a student of engineering college,and my muslims pass out seniors made group in order to aware of islam ,literracy,career guidance in muslims people(only for men). In my college there are 50 muslims in which 7 are girls. I want to ask a thing to you, actually I was carrying this thing as a burden
    on my heart from a very long time but could not dare to say it to any one,
    might be I was not at the right or right position say all this but now I feel its the right time to say.

    Prophet Mohammad PBUH says that” A women will take 4
    men in hell with her those four men’s are her husband, her father, her
    brother and her elder son”. The reason that Prophet Mohammad PBUH
    explain behind this hadith is that a women will argue with Allah
    Subhanahu Tala that whenever I make any kind of mistake I got scolded
    and beaten by them but I was never got scolded or beaten for leaving
    namaz or not following Islam.
    The reason for mentioning this important hadith is that since we all
    have come from different places and nobody have known each other
    earlier besides this fact we live like a family here like brothers and
    sisters we share a lot of memory together so it is our duty to guide
    them(girls student) toward the right path .we know the fact that
    Muslims in this institution are very much less in number as compared
    to non Muslim and this statistic get even worse when we talk about
    girls student. So it is easier for shaitan to distract them or make
    them or us forget what we are and what is our motive that Allah has
    send us with. By making or involving(indirect involvement -Seniors k contact me rahe ) the girls’ student in leap knit
    we can give shaitan a set back as we can talk to them at certain
    occasions about the Islam. Because at this moment of time we don’t
    know the status of girls student in terms of following Islam that how
    much they are following Islam but with their involvement we would
    certainly be able to know this fact.
    On the other their involvement also get important that they can share
    their grievances with us in any case or can discuss with us about
    Islam .So, this discussion will help them in following and
    understanding Islam in a better way.
    So, at last I would like to conclude by saying that Allah
    has written in his Holy Quran that “you people are the best among all
    and you have been raised to follow and guide people to the right path
    and save us and other from going to wrong path”.

    A mosque (constructed in 1300 century) is in our college and some times it requres repair so they(girls) also had contributed for masjid by their own.I realize that they also wants to come forward for Islam but under the rules of islam(Sharyyat). From first year to second year , there are so many changes in their attitude(read namaz, have fasting and many more). Leap knit group give us(boys) knowledge about current technology and financial help(only knit poor muslim boys) but If a muslim girls want to know about this then where should she go.

    I want to know from you that Why do we see only 54% of muslims (46% women excluded) I want to involve the girls in leap knit group but my seniors do not interest.

    Please think on this matter also.
    I dont know what you will think about me but its my personal view and i wanted to know about the views of Islam(Sharyyat)
    It might be possible that my seniors I am not able to think, what they(my seniors) are thinking for the involvement of girls in leap knit group. So PLease guide me under Islamic law.or Is it possible to involve the girls in group?
    Please reply soon on my email id (

    I am new to shia. I can tell u that nobody from iran or any shia bribed me or approached me to accept shia. In my heart I felt that the history of islam n the message brought by our beloved prophet s a w, was not complete to my understanding n I needed to do research.
    Many of the books I ve read re shia-sm, has their reference from sunni books. In my opinion the learned sunnis was n still is lying to the muslim ppl at large.
    We are all muslim praising one god and confirm the last prophet as Mohamed s a w. In the sunni sect there is 4 mathahabs n even amongst them they differ, yet they want to denounce the shia as muslim.
    U only have to look at the saudi family controlling the most holiest of places for us muslims yet they are the puppets of the west and has the same feelings towards muslims as the family n descendants of uthmaan.
    If they followed the instructions of the prophet s a w on his death bed, then the muslims wouldve been 1 ummah.
    Pls it is yr duty to read n learn, especially abt yr religion.
