In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Possible Cure to Shiaa & Sunnee Disputes

by Irshad Mahmood - Director, Siraat-al-Mustaqeem Dawah Centre

BIG Shame on those who don't take Guidance from the Quraan

Then the Messenger will say: "O my Lord! Truly my people took this Quraan for just foolish nonsense." (Al_Quraan_025.030)


You Hear it or Read it that is it, now it is between you and Allah:


…It is Thy duty ONLY to convey the message (unto them as is), (Al_Quraan_003.020).


The best friends are not those who just clap on your every act, BUT actually are those who analyze your acts and not only encourages on your good acts BUT points on your mistakes in a positive manner. One of the past time scholars said, if you really want to be successful to go to Heaven, then come under the scholar's teaching, so that he can help you to come out of the mistakes. If you cannot find a good scholar, then make a good friend, so he may help you and point on your mistakes. Remember, those are not good friends who just clap on your each act and eat with you then runaway, since they are very dangerous and cannot help you to filter your mistakes. OR at least listen to your enemy, who will keep pointing on you negatively, then just make sure do you really have that error, if yes then correct that according to the Quraan.


Before it wasn't so bad BUT now Shiaas and Sunnees are attacking on each other and is getting more and more violent and bloody, which is a BIG SHAME and CURSE on those who are doing this SHAMEFUL act. What justification they will give when Allah will ask on the Day of Judgment regarding destroying Masjids and many innocent people which include kids and women.


Keep in Mind:


Muslims are not for sale, since no one can buy their religion from them. So it is possible that Disbelievers/Hypocrites (Munafiqs) might have deviated Muslims through Fabricated Hadeeth etc., and the final product in the form of Shiaa and Sunni Disputes are among us and others are benefiting from this as well as destroying our economy. You can sure find those fabricated Hadeeth, which Shiaa have BUT Sunni don't have and vice versa. e.g. Shiaa claims the Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) curse on Usman Ghani (RA), while Sunni does not have this Hadeeth, instead they claim that the only Sahabee to whom Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) pointed at three occasions that he is Jannatee and will go to heaven, e.g. at the time of purchasing well in Madina and donating to Muslims or purchasing land and donating to Masjid for its extension etc. Let us analyze this in detail. At one occasion when he (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) declared himself as Messenger of Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him), then Disbelievers stoned him and he  (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) become seriously injured, Angel Jibrael (AS) asked if he (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) want to punish them, BUT Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) said, NO, may be their kids will accept Islaam. When one of the daughter of Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) and wife of Usman (RA) passed away, Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) offered another daughter to marry Usman (RA). Remember: Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) was mercy to the mankind. Abu Bakr (RA) and Umar Farooq (RA) were father-in-law of Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) while Usman Ghani (RA) and Ali (RA) were son-in-law of Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) and there all were family members. In brief we need to come out of those chain of narrations e.g. he said that he said that he said that ...... he said that, which really contradict the Quraan and dividing Muslims, since division among Muslims is out of Islaam.


For security issue any Rally like Asura etc, which you cannot prove that it is according to the Quraan, must be banned. Keep in mind, when Khadija (RA), first wife of Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) passed away, he did not have Rally, nor when his son passed away, even at the time of his son's death, there were solar eclipse, and people had started saying that even sky is crying. Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him), said you know nothing and these two are separate and independent thing and not related to each other.


However Shiaa, & Sunnee both believes on one Allah, One Quraan and Prophet Mohammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) as last and final messenger. ALSO they both build Masjids to worship Allah alone. Those who destroy the Masjid regardless of Shiaa or Sunnee both may go to the HELLFIRE forever, unless they repent.


By verbally saying slogans like "No Shiaa No Sunnee, Islaam is Unity", had NEVER worked before nor is working right now around the globe and may never work, ever. Also the concept that Shiaa is Right as well as Sunnee is right and both are right Never worked before nor is working right now around the globe and may never work, ever. Where ever there are any differences, either the first is wrong or the second is wrong or both are wrong and both can never be absolutely right on any dispute matters. Keep in mind if you have any differences someone else may take benefit from this dispute. We need to get the Guidance from the Quraan instead of making our Scholars (Ulemaas, Aulyiaas) our God.


Those, including Scholars (Ulemas, Auliyaas) who believe that everybody is right, I have questions for them:

1>  Why Tsunamis hit badly on Ummah?

2>  Why Earthquakes hit badly on Ummah?

3>  Why Floods hit badly on Ummah?

4>  Why Cruel Rulers rule badly on Ummah?

5>  Why anyone passess by Spits on Ummah, Slaps on Ummah and even hits Big Punches on Ummah?

6>  Why all types of Disasters hit badly on Ummah?


Whether you believe or not, there are some SERIOUS issues, which cannot go away by closing our eyes. We need do table talk for that and everyone needs to be sincere to find the cause to resolve the issues according to the Quraan.


Generaly whenever any issues come, we just jump to ask Scholars (Ulemaas, Auliyaas) without asking where that information is in the Quraan and blindly believe on them, instead of checking their words from the Quraan. This type of Blindly Believing on Scholars may lead us to Shirk, please read my article:

http://www.global-right-path.com/Ummah-Reformer/MR_Scholars_Auliyaas_Aalims.htm


Where ever two persons come to live together, they will have some differences, BUT that should not break the boundary limits told by Allah as in the Quraan. Let us analyze two cases first, one is about unjust and the other is differences in belief:


Let us remember back in 1971, when there were unjust between East Pakistan and West Pakistan, although both have the same Sunnee belief, we got destruction and two brothers got divided. Our Great Enemy is only and only Shaitaan. He knows from where he can attack us. Remember, True Justice needs to be done at home, at work, in your Neighborhood, in the court, in the assembly etc. Let us see what Allah says in the Quraan regarding unjust (UNBELIEVERS, UNJUST & TRANSGRESSORS all together).


Surely We revealed the Taurat in which was guidance and light; with it the prophets who submitted themselves (to Allah) judged (matters) for those who were Jews, and the masters of Divine knowledge and the doctors, because they were required to guard (part) of the Book of Allah, and they were witnesses thereof; therefore fear not the people and fear Me, and do not take a small price for My communications; and whoever did not judge by what Allah revealed, those are they that are the UNBELIEVERS, (Al_Quraan_005.044).

And We prescribed to them in it that life is for life, and eye for eye, and nose for nose, and ear for ear, and tooth for tooth, and (that there is) reprisal in wounds; but he who foregoes it, it shall be an expiation for him; and whoever did not judge by what Allah revealed, those are they that are the UNJUST, (Al_Quraan_005.045).

And the followers of the Injeel should have judged by what Allah revealed in it; and whoever did not judge by what Allah revealed, those are they that are the TRANSGRESSORS, (Al_Quraan_005.047).


Whether we believe or not, there are certainly some differences in Shiaa's and Sunnee's Belief:


To come closer and reduce the differences, it is necessary to find the major differences first. Without knowing the truth about the differences, it will be impossible to come closer, since we will be blind. It is very painful to deal with such disputes, but we don’t have any choice left, other than to come to the one common thing which is according to the Quraan. Scholars from both the sides MUST sit down and resolve our differences IMMEDIATELY and sincerely according to the Quraan.


Allah says which is true for different sects in Islaam as well:

'Say: O People of the Book! Come to common terms as between us and you: that we worship none but Allah; that we associate no partners with Him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, lords and patrons other than Allah." If then they turn back, say you: "Bear witness that we at least are Muslims, bowing to Allah's Will", (Al_Quraan_003:064).


In the light of above ayaat, there could be three categories and first we need to one come to one which is common in both sects:

1>      Those issues which are common in both is the starting point to unite.


2>      Those issues on which Sunnees believe but Shiaas do not, have to be stopped in practice unless they present valid and clear proof from the Quraan.


3>      Those issues on which Shiaas believe but Sunnees do not, have to be stopped in practice unless they present valid and clear proof from the Quraan.


4>      One suggestion is to go to Makkah, the Center of Islaam and see how the local people over there in Makkah are performing that particular act on which both dispute for which you couldn't find any valid reason from the Quraan. e.g. To answer on How to offer Salaat, see the People of Makkah.

He it is Who has revealed the Book to you; some of its verses are clear revelations, they are the basis or fundamental (foundation) of the Book, and others are allegorical; then as for those in whose hearts there is perversity they follow the part of it which is allegorical, seeking to mislead and seeking to give it (their own) interpretation. But none knows its interpretation except Allah, and those who are firmly rooted in knowledge say: We believe in it, it is all from our Lord; and none do mind except those having understanding, (Al_Quraan_003.007).


But when our Clear Signs are rehearsed unto them, those who rest not their hope on their meeting with Us, say: bring us reading other than this, or change this, say: it is not for me, of my own accord, to change it: I follow Naught but what is revealed unto me (as is): if I were to disobey my Lord, I should myself fear the Penalty of a great day (to come). Say: If Allah had to willed, I should not have rehearsed it to you, nor would he have made it known to you. A whole lifetime before this have I tarried amongst you: will you not then understand, (Al_Quraan_010.015 – 016)?


O you who believe! be careful of your duty to Allah and be with the true ones, (Al_Quraan_009.119).


If you DIFFER in anything (Faith, Salaat, Sayaam, Zakaat, Hajj, etc.) amongst yourself, then REFER to Allah and his Messenger, if you really believe in Allah and in the Last Day. That is better and more suitable for determinations, [Al_Quraan_004.059].


Islaam gives permission to the Christians and Jews and other sects of Islaam to continue upon their religion but only if they remain subordinated to Islaam; pay Jizyah to the Muslims and maintain the peace. Islaam does not force the Christians and Jews to become Muslims and it also does not force the other sects of Islaam, as in the Holy Quraan it is said:


"Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error", (Al_Quraan_002:256).

Differences Between Shiaa and Sunnee


As for those who Divide their Religion and Break up into Sects, thou hast NO part in them in the least (Not Muslim any longer): their affair is with Allah. He will in the end tell them the truth of all that they did, [Holy Quraan 6: 159].

And obey Allah and His Messenger and  do not dispute among yourselves, for then you will be weak in hearts and your power will depart, and be patient; surely Allah is with the patient, (Al_Quraan_008.046).



Shiaa’s Beliefs

Sunnee’s Beliefs

Shahadah: Declaration of Faith:

There is no god but Allah, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, 'Ali is the Friend of Allah. The Successor of the Messenger of Allah And his FIRST Caliph.

There is no god but Allah, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.

Adhan: Call to Prayer:

Shiaa have a different call to prayer.

Sunnee have a different call to prayer.

Wudu:

Shiaa have a different method to do Wudu.

Sunnee have a different method to do Wudu.

Salaat:

Shiaa offer Salaat differently including placing the forehead onto a piece of hardened clay from Karbala , not directly onto the prayer mat when prostrating.

Sunnee offer Salaat differently.

Salaat Combined:

Shiaa tend to combine prayers, sometimes worshipping three times per day instead of five.

Sunnee usually do not tend to combine prayers other than in the Hajj, so having five times a day.

Fasting:

Shiaa have different timings for Fasting.

Sunnee have different timings for Fasting.

Zakaat:

Shiaa have different Zakaat System.

Sunnee have different Zakaat System.

Hadeeth:

Shiaa have different Hadeeths

Sunnee have different Hadeeths

Imaams:

Shiaa BELIEVE that an Imam who is the successor of the prophet must be clearly and openly be appointed by the Messenger of God. Shiaa also BELIEVE that the prophet of Islam appointed all the twelve sinless Imams as his successor’s, one after the other. These Imaams have direct knowledge from God, and their verdict is the verdict of God.

Sunnee’s Imaams / Scholars are not like Shiaa Imaam. They are human being and may do mistake. "They have taken as lords beside Allah their rabbis and their monks and the Messiah son of Mary, when they were bidden to worship only One Allah. There is no Allah save Him. Be He Glorified from all that they ascribe as partner (unto Him)!. (Al_Quran_009.031)". O, You who believe! Fear Allah and be with those who are truthful (Guided Imaam or Scholars, not limited to twelve). (Al_Quran_009.119) .

Abusing Khalifas

Shiaa curse and abuse sahabas including first three Khalifas:

Abu Baker (RA),

Umar Farooq   (RA),

Usman Ghani (RA).

The Sahaabah (RA) are those that transmitted the Deen to us. Sunnee love all Sahabah and all Khalifas, including Abu Baker (RA) {father-in-law of Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him)},

Umar Farooq   (RA) {father-in-law of Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him)},

Usman Ghani (RA) {son-in-law of Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him)} and Ali (RA) {son-in-law of Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him)}.

Sunnee also love Hasan (RA) and Husain (RA). No Sunnee is Sunnee if he denies these fact.How come a Sunnee will not love those to whom Rasool Allah loved a lot. Rasool Allah loved his grandsons a lot.

Aisha (RA) Wife of Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him):

Shiaa Curse Aisha (RA).

The Prophet (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) has a greater right over the Mu'mineen than they have over themselves, and his Wives are their (the Mu'muneen's) Mothers. (Al_Quraan_033:006)

Yaa Allah Help only:

Shiaa ask help from Ali (RA) by saying Yaa Ali Help.

It is Crystal ClearSHIRK (associating partners with Allah) to ask help from someone other than Allah, who is not in this world. According to Sunnee thought it is BANNED to marry aMUSHRIK or Mushrikah.

Seeking Help from those who are in the Grave:

Shiaa ask help from those who are in the Grave.

It is Crystal Clear SHIRK (associating partners with Allah) to ask help from someone other than Allah, who is not in this world. According Sunnee thought it is banned to marry a MUSHRIK . According to the Quraan: If you pray unto them they hear you not your prayer, and if they heard they could not grant it you. On the Day of Resurrection they will disown association with you. None can inform you like Him Who is Aware. [Al_Quraan_035.014] .

Muttah: Temporary Marriage:

Shiaa permits Muttah - Fixed-Term Temporary Marriage.

Muttah (Temporary Marriage) isBANNED in Sunnee, since it is not in the Quraan and it opens the door for Prostitutes by fooling Women. Marriage between a man and a woman means to live together for their whole lives, unless there is no way to live together.

Question: on the Day of Judgment:

What could happen on the Day of Judgment, if the Sunnee Believe is CORRECT?

What could happen on the Day of Judgment if the Shiaa Believe is CORRECT?

 

Yes Shiaa believe in one God (Allah ), Yes they believe on Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) as last and final messenger of Allah, BUT still when the Differences are from A to W, I don’t know how to unite them and who is getting benefit from our disputes. Look how Ummah is facing all sort of Disasters around the globe, including the Cruel Rulers. Scholars from both sides MUST sit down and resolve our differences IMMEDIATELY.


I can only give the references from the Quraan:


'Say: O People of the Book! Come to common terms as between us and you: that we worship none but Allah; that we associate no partners with Him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, lords and patrons other than Allah." If then they turn back, say you: "Bear witness that we at least are Muslims, bowing to Allah's Will", (Al_Quraan_003:064).


In the light of above ayaat, there could be three categories and first we need to one come to one which is common on both sects:

1>      Those issues which are common on both that is the starting point to unite.


2>      Those issues on which Sunnees believe but Shiaas do not, have to be stopped practicing unless they present valid and clear proof from the Quraan.

3>      Those issues on which Shiaas believe but Sunnees do not, have to be stopped practicing unless they present valid and clear proof from the Quraan.

4>      One suggestion is to go to Makkah, the Center of Islaam and see how the local people over there in Makkah are performing that particular act on which both dispute for which you couldn't find any valid reason from the Quraan. e.g. To answer on How to offer Salaat, see the People of Makkah.

He it is Who has revealed the Book to you; some of its verses are clear revelations, they are the basis or fundamental (foundation) of the Book, and others are allegorical; then as for those in whose hearts there is perversity they follow the part of it which is allegorical, seeking to mislead and seeking to give it (their own) interpretation. but none knows its interpretation except Allah, and those who are firmly rooted in knowledge say: We believe in it, it is all from our Lord; and none do mind except those having understanding, (Al_Quraan_003.007).

Yes there will be Imaams / Scholars / Leaders / Auliyas in every age or time BUT not limited to twelve Imaams and we MUST be with those who are TRUTHFUL to protect and help the people through the Quraan.

O, You who believe! Fear Allah and be with those who are truthful (Guided Scholars, Imaams and Auliyaas, not limited to twelve BUT are in every age or time), [Al_Quraan_009.119].

Allah says which is true for different sects in Islaam as well:


If you DIFFER in anything (Faith, Salaat, Sayaam, Zakaat, Hajj, etc.) amongst yourself, then REFER to Allah and his Messenger, if you really believe in Allah and in the Last Day. That is better and more suitable for determinations, [Al_Quraan_004.059].


Say: O People of the Book!

If then they turn back, say you: "Bear witness that we at least are Muslims, bowing to Allah's Will, (Al_Quraan_003:064).

Otherwise Allah says which is true for different sects in Islaam as well:


As for those who Divide their Religion and break up into Sects, thou hast NO part (Not Muslim any More) in them in the least: their affair is with Allah. He will in the end tell them the truth of all that they did", [Holy Quraan 6:159].


Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error, (Al_Quraan_002:256).


Unto you your religion, and unto me my religion, (Al_Quraan_109.005).


And your Lord says: "Call on Me; I will answer your (Prayers), (Al_Quraan_040.060).


(Ask Allah directly for all help. No need to do shirk. Only “Yaa Allah Help”)

 

For verily you (Muhammad) cannot make the dead to hear, nor can you make the deaf to hear your call when they have turned to flee, [Al_Quraan_030.052].


{Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) cannot make the dead or deaf hear}

If you pray unto them they hear you not your prayer, and if they heard they could not grant it you. On the Day of Resurrection they will disown association with you. None can inform you like Him Who is Aware, [Al_Quraan_035.014].

(Even you cannot make them hear)


We need to apply the Same Rules to cure our disputes among other sects like Berelwee, Deubandee, Aghakhanee, Wahabee, Ismailee, Ahle-Hadees etc., as well.


If Quraan cannot convince you nothing will, open your heart toward Allah, because to him will you return and if you haven't gone through the manual he has sent you and understood it properly, for sure Allah will not like it.


Verily Allah will never change the condition of a people until they (first) change it themselves, [Al_Quraan_013.011].


And if you turn away, Allah will exchange you for some another people, and they will not be like you, [Al_Quraan_047.038].


Seek forgiveness from Allah and come to the right path that Our beloved Rasool Allah (S.A.W.S) showed us. Don't follow other people as they will only lead you away from the truth.


Want to See Bloody Islaam:


If you want to see Bloody Islaam, see it in the Islaamic Month of Muharram, when Shia People cry for the death of Grandson of Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him), which is totally AGAINST the Quraan and Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him). Son of Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) passed away, but he never. Hazrat Khadija (RA) First Wife of Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) passed away but he never cried. BUT Shia People cry only for the murder of Grandson of Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him), BUT they NEVER cried for the death of Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him), all of his son and daughters, any of his wives, any of his son-in-law or father-in-law etc. Shias are biased and do CLEAR DISCRIMINATIONS against very close relatives of Prophet Muhammad (Peace-Be-Upon-Him), so how can they be Muslims? Scholars MUST need to come forward and tell us what is the truth.

 

Hypocrites Read the Quraan BUT Practices Something Else:


Hypocrites don’t read translations of the Quraan to understand, if he/she don’t understand Arabic. Hypocrites don’t encourage to Learn Quraanic Arabic Language. Only Protected Book is the Quraan and all other Books including Hadeeth, Bible, etc. are NOT protected by Allah and have many contradictions, errors and causing many deviations among people.


BIG Shame on those who don't take Guidance from the Quraan:


Then the Messenger will say: "O my Lord! Truly my people took this Quraan for just foolish nonsense", (Al_Quraan_025.030).


Non-Practicing Muslims are like ASS / Donkey carrying books, (Ref: Al_Quraan_062.005).


None argue concerning the revelations (Ayaat) of Allah but those who disbelieve …, (Ref: Al_Quraan_040.004).


To whom Allah has given the ability to Dawah, MUST start doing Positive Dawah now.

To whom Allah has given the ability to Speak, MUST start Speaking now BUT No-Violence.

To whom Allah has given the ability to Write, MUST start Writing now BUT No-Violence.

To whom Allah has given the ability to go on the Media, MUST start going on to the Media now BUT No-Violence.

To whom Allah has given the ability to do other Peaceful and Non-Violent things, MUST start doing Peaceful and Non-Violent things now.

 

Violence is Hurting Islaam Very BADLY.


May Allah HELP all Muslims to do Dawah with Wisdom. AMEEN.


Read Al-Quraan, the Miracle of Miracles and free from contradictions and errors
