The distinguishing features of the Raafidah


They free themselves from all of the Companions of Allaah’s Messenger (sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam), except a very small number that reaches ten odd…

When the origin and base of their madhhab rests upon ignorance, then they became the greatest of all the factions in ignorance and lying…

The people of knowledge are agreed, by way of transmittal, reporting, and chain of narration that the Raafidah are most lying of all of the factions, and lying amongst them is an ancient matter, and for this reason the Scholars of Islaam used to know that they are distinguished with abundant lying…

They say, “Our religion is taqiyyah (deception)”!! And this is that one of them says with his tongue what is other than what is in his heart, and this is lying and hypocrisy…

They are greatest of people in opposition to those in authority, and the furthest of the people from obeying them, except under compulsion…

What striving is more astray than the striving of the one who tires himself with a lengthy tiring, and indulges in much “al-qaal wal-qeel (i.e. hearsay)”, and separates from the Jamaa’ah of the Muslims, and curses the foremost (in goodness) and the successors after them, and aids the Disbelievers and Hypocrites, and devises many types of stratagems, plots, and traverses whatever paths are possible for him to traverse, and supports himself with false testimony, and who keeps his followers attached by the rope of deception.
