A Word to Bring Ahlus-Sunnah and Shi’a (The Rafidha) Closer
Sheikh Dr. Uthman Al-Khamees (حفظه الله)

In order to make Sunnah and Shi’a closer, I ask from the scholars and the most educated Shi’a(s) (scholars) to declare their innocence from the books that talk badly about the Qur’an and the companions of the Prophet may peace and blessings be upon him and their authors, and I demand an honest fatwa (formal Islamic legal opinion) from Al-Hawza school to declare whoever says that Qur’an, the book of Allah SWT is corrupted or has been corrupted is un unbeliever (Kafir), and never publish books that cause religious fanaticism and the books that curse the companions and the honor of the Prophet may peace and blessings be upon him, and I also demand from the Shi’a scholars and preachers to stop cursing the companions of the Prophet (PBUH). How can they ask from us to stop defending and attacking back when they are the ones who first attack the ones whom we consider them to be better than our mothers and fathers!? I swear in the name of Allah SWT that we will not refrain from defending the Prophet and his companions! I swear in the name of Allah SWT that we love the companions and the Prophet’s family more than our fathers, mothers, children and ourselves! I swear in the name of Allah SWT that we will not refrain from defending the Prophet and his companions, not until you stop what you are doing to those who Allah is pleased with (the companions)!

I only have one request to the Shi’a of this time, I only want you to browse, read and tour the Al-Kafi book, because Al-Kafi is the greatest, the most correct and the most righteous book, there’s no Islamic book that could be compared to it, or even get close to it according to the Shi’a! Read the book to see where you get your religious teachings and beliefs.

The only way to agreement is by the Shi’a scholars declaring to the world their beliefs and doctrine regarding the Holy Qur’an, the companions, Ahlus-Sunnah and other things without using Taqiyyah. That is because the Shi’a people are lost, the things they hear from the Hussainiyyah are different from the things they hear in debates between Ahlus-Sunnah and the Shi’a. For example, in the Mustakillah debates (مناظرات المستقلة), Al-Tijani said that the companions of the Prophet (PBUH) are Kuffar (unbelievers), but his friend Al-Najdi says that they are not Kuffar (the companions of the Prophet), Al-Tijani accuses Bukhari and Muslim, but Al-Najdi says that they are righteous, at first Al-Najdi says that we (Ahlus-Sunnah) are Muslims, and after that he says that we are not Mu’mineen (true believers), and then he says we are Mu’mineen (true believers), and Al-Najdi says that we don’t curse, but Al-Tijani declares people as Kuffar (unbelievers). Muhsin Al-Mu’alim says that Abu-Bakr, Omar, Othman, and others (R.A) are Nawasib (enemies to the family of the Prophet’s family (Ahl ul-Bayt)). But Dr. Al-Musawi says that Nawasib are unbelievers, but he won’t answer if Abu-Bakr, Omar and the rest are considered to be Nawasib(s) or not.

O Shi’a of the world, WAKE UP!

Musa Al-Musawi has said this before me in his two books “O Shi’a of the World Wake Up!” and “Shi’a and the Correction.” They say in their books (the Shi’a) that whatever teachings and sayings that go against the Holy Qur’an must be thrown and ignored, and we (Ahlus-Sunnah) also say to ignore and throw whatever your scholars and imams say, whatever they say that contradicts the Qur’an or goes against it should be thrown and ignored, do it!

I swear in the name of the one and only true God Allah SWT! I want to advice you, and I pity you. You have seen how every Shi’a scholar has his own explanation of the Qur’an and how he corrects the hadiths without any rules and systems to follow (Al-Musawi is a great example). How do the Shi’a know that a certain hadith is authentic or not? And you will not find an answer to that, ask your scholars!

Why don’t the Shi’a of the Twelver Shi’ism sect follow the twelve righteous imams? Why do they follow their scholars instead? Where are the true hadiths from the true twelve imams? Check and read your books (Al-Kafi) and search for the hadiths of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)! We want you to go back to the right Islam, the religion of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

The ones who gave us the Holy Qur’an are the ones who gave us the true Sunnah of the Prophet (PBUH). So if they are trustworthy with the Qur’an, then they are trustworthy with the Sunnah.
