The Innovation of the Rāfiḍa is More Severe than the Innovation of the Khawaarij

Shaykh ul Islam (May Allah have Mercy on him):

And the  innovation (bid’ah)  of the Rāfiḍa is more severe than the innovation  of the Khawaarij. They accuse Abu Bakr and Umar of disbelief, and lie against the Prophet (ﷺ) and the Companions, in a manner  that no one has brought the likes of, whilst the Khawaarij do not lie but the Khawaarij used to be more truthful and more courageous than them and more trustworthy in fulfilling their pacts than them and so fought more than them and they (the Rāfiḍa) are the most lying, the most cowardly, most deceitful and most lowly (of people) and they seek help from the disbelievers against the Muslims.  Indeed we have seen and the Muslims have seen that if the Muslims are tried with the disbelieving enemy, they (the Rāfiḍa) are with them (the disbelieving enemy) as was the case with Genghis Khan the disbelieving emperor of the Tatars.  For indeed the Rāfiḍa supported him against the Muslims.

قال شيخ الإسلام (رحمه الله) والرافضة أشد بدعة من الخوارج وهم يكفرون من لم تكن الخوارج تكفره كأبى بكر وعمر ويكذبون على النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم والصحابة كذبا ما كذب أحد مثله والخوارج لا يكذبون لكن الخوارج كانوا أصدق وأشجع منهم وأوفى بالعهد منهم فكانوا أكثر قتالا منهم وهؤلاء أكذب وأجبن وأغدر وأذل وهم يستعينون بالكفار على المسلمين فقد رأينا ورأى المسلمون أنه إذا ابتلي المسلمون بعدو كافر كانوا معه على المسلمين كما جرى لجنكزخان ملك التتر الكفار فإن الرافضة أعانته على المسلمين [منهج السنة ج٥ ص١٥٤ -١٥٥]

Rejecting The Truth

Shaykh ul-Islam (May Allah have Mercy on him):

So indeed a person may know that the truth is with other than him and, in spite of this, he rejects that due to his envy of him or due to seeking to be above him or due to the desire of the soul. And that desire causes him to transgress against him, reject that which he says by any way whilst in his heart, he knows that the truth is with him. Continue reading

Thinking Ill Of Your Brother’s Intentions

From Ulama Audio: Dr. Abdur Rahman Omaisan answers a question presented during the recent conference in Edmonton, Canada in which someone asked:

What is your advice to an individual who accuses his brothers with loving fame and leadership without presenting any evidence to this allegation?

A beautifully presented answer, fortified by evidence from the book of Allah, the Sunnah of his Messenger salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam, and adorned by statements of the scholars of old.

May Allah reward the sheikh lavishly for his efforts in teaching the religion and dispelling confusion. Ameen.
