THE BELIEFS OF KHOMENI THE LEADER OF THE IRANIAN REVOLUTION
• Nuri Tibiris, one of the most renowned Shi’ite scholars and mujtahids, wrote a book against the present Quran. The book is entitled: ‘Faslul Khitab Fi Tahreefi-Kitabi Rabbil Arbaab’ (The Final Verdict on the Distortion of the Book of the Lord of Lords).
• Khomeini mentions this scholar with great respect in his own book ‘A1Hukumatul Islamiyah” (The Islamic State). In fact, Khomeini has actually used Nuri Tibiris’s work entitled “Mustadrakul Wasail” to complete his theory of Wilayatul Faqih.
[Wilayatul Faqih is the Islamic jurist’s right to overrule a ruling that contradicts Islamic law.]
• Khomeini writes about Hazrat Abu Bakr and Hazrat Omar (R.A.):
“Those people who, in their envy to rule, attached themselves to the Deen of the Prophet (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) and formed their own cliques could not possibly refrain from their actions on the bases of Quranic advice. They had to materialise their aims at any cost.”
(Kashful Asraar: 114)
• He also writes:
‘Those who had no affiliation with the Quran and Islam except through their desire for the world and power. They had made the Qurun a vehicle to promote their agenda.
In his book Kashful Asraar, Khomeni has dedicated a whole chapter to Hazrat Abu Bakr’s opposition to the Quran and another chapter to the Omar’s opposition.
(Ibid: 114 & 117)
He has then continued to write a chapter on how to answer the critiques of the Ahlus Sunnah W’al Jama’ah with the heading: “An eye on the answers of the foolish.”
• Khomeni writes about Hazrat Uthman (R.A.):
“We worship and recognise only that God Whose actions are based on concrete rationalism and Who does not rule against that rationalism. We do not worship a god who creates a building for Divine worship and justice and then strives to destroy that very building himself by giving authority to rascals like Yazid, Mu’awiyah and Uthman”.
These are but a few selected views of Majlisi, Maqbool Dehlavi, Noori and Allamah Khomeini, the leader of the Iranian Revolution. These have been presented to you without any critique or commentary. The reader should.judge for himself how much he can accept these beliefs. The reader should also ask himself if the rise of Khomeini in Iran was a political revolution or whether he had an agenda to propagate the Shi’ite beliefs. Or whether it was a challenge to all of the Muslim world, or a threat to the bonafides of the beliefs of Sunnis.
“The Islamic and non-Islamic powers of the world will not admit our power till such time that we establish our hold over Makkah and Madinah because these are the centers and citadels of Islam. Hence our domination over these places Is an essential requirement … when as a conqueror I will enter Makkah and Madinah, the first thing to be done at that time by me would be to dig out two idols (Abu Bakr and Umar) lying by the side of the Prophet’s grave.”
(Ayatullah Khomeini of Iran, while addressing a message for a youth rally).
This statement mirrors the attitude of hatred and contempt which Khomeini and his Shiahs cherish in particular for Ameerul Mu’mineen Sayyidina Abu Bakr and Ameerul Mu’mineen Sayyidina Umar (Radiallahu Anhuma), and about all the Sahabah (Radiallahu Anhum) in general. While this is the vile and abominable attitude of Khomeini towards the illustrious Sahabah (Radiallahu Anhum) of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), the Qur’an-e-Kareem states the attitude of Imaan in the following words:
“Muhammad is the Rasool of Allah, and those who are with him (i. e. the Sahabah) are stern against the kuffar and tender among themselves. You will see them (the Sahabah) in Ruku’ and Sajdah searching for the grace of Allah and (His) Pleasure. Their sign is on their faces because of the impression of (abundance of) Sajdah… ”
Most certainly, Allah was well pleased with the Mu’mineen (i.e. the Sahabah) when they took the oath of allegiance to you (0 Muhammad!) under the tree…
“And the early ones, the first one among the Muhajireen and Ansar and those who follow them (the Muhajireen and Ansar) in virtue, Allah is well pleased with them and they are well pleased with Him. Allah has prepared for them gardens beneath which flow rivers; therein will they dwell forever. Indeed, that is the great victory. ”
This is what the Qur’an says regarding the Sahabah, but the Shiah priests brand the Muhajireen and Ansar as kafir, murtad and munafiq! Nauthubillah!
And, Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said about the Sahabah:
“Fear Allah! Fear Allah regarding my Sahabah. Thus, whoever loves them, does so because of my love; whoever hates them, does so because of my hatred.”
It is thus abundantly clear that Khomeini cherishes a dislike, an aversion, a hatred for the Sahabah because of his hatred for Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). The closer a Sahaabi was to Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), the viler the abuse and the greater the enmity the Shiahs demonstrate for him.
The noble Sahabah (Radiallahu Anhum) are the foundation and the pivots of Islam. The entire basis and superstructure of Islam have been magnificently raised on the teachings, explanations and expositions of the Sahabah (Radiallahu Anhum). The Qur’an Majeed itself has
been authentically and authoritatively transmitted to the Ummah down the centuries in the form presented by the illustrious Sahabah – by Abu Bakr, Umar and Uthmaan (Radiallahu Anhum), the prime targets of Shi’i and Khomeini vituperation.
An abundance of Shi’i propaganda on the instructions of Khomeini is being churned out by Iran. Such propaganda conducted under hollow and hypocritical slogans such as (There is no Shi’ism and no Sunnism), is designed to mislead the Ummah of Islam into acceptance of the Shi’i religion. Ignorance of what Shi’ism is, has constrained many Muslims to incline towards Khomeini and Shi’ism. But, it shall, Insha Allah, be shown that the vociferous “Islamic” slogans trumpeted by Khomeini and the Shi’i priests are mere outer and superficial facades behind which lurk the darkness of kufr. In fact, the intensity of Khomeini’s and Shiah kufr is worse than the kufr of the Qadianis and other baatil sects since the Shi’i religion is reared on hatred for the Sahabah (Radiallahu Anhum). Without such hatred, there is no Shi’ism. Hatred for the Sahabah, which is an overt and conspicuous facet of Shi’ism, is a doctrine of fundamental importance in the Shiah religion. It is inconceivable to be a Shiah without subscribing to the doctrine of aversion for and vituperation of the noble Sahabah (Radiallahu Anhum) of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).
To open the eyes of the Sunni brethren of ours, who have been deceived by Khomeini’s propaganda machinery, we shall present here the views of the Shi’i religion – views and statements extracted from the authoritative books of theology of the Shi’i religion………………….
Khomeini’s ‘goats’ more superior to the Sahabah:
Trying to instill a sense of inferiority in others in order to highlight the virtues of another, a technique called ‘example by debasement,’ is a tendency of many. Whilst some do this to maybe, through invoking jealousy, get a truant brother to follow in the footsteps of his bigger more well-behaved brother, the Shi’ahs do this in order to claim their place (if any) amongst the Muslims of the world. By doing so, the virtues of those who are compared is lost, their good points too, lose all appeal, and all focus and excellence is shifted to the one who is compared to Khomeini is no different. Trying to stifle opposition from the local clerics and mullahs after the revolution, he compared them to the ‘local Iranian people, who, had it not been for their oppression, the army would not have been victorious in war.’ Khomeini then used his tactic of debasement; and as usual, the noble Sahabah were the victims.He said:
“Today, the volunteers wanting to go to the battlefields embrace martyrdom in such a wholehearted way that this was unprecedented even during the period of the Prophet Muhammad and Hazrat ‘Ali. It is mentioned in Qur’aan that when the Prophet used to invite people to war, they did not obey and were providing excuses to postpone the event for another day, or talked of either cold or hot weather.” (Tehran Times, vol III no: 222, March 11, 1982)
If the Sahabah did not support the Holy Prophet (SAW) in his campaigns, how it is that when Sayyidina ‘Ali came to power, he found a kingdom stretching from Madinah as far as Jerusalem to the west, Azerbaijan tot he East, and practically the whole of north Africa at his feet?
Khomeni’s View Of The Sahabah:
In his book, Kashful Asrar, on page 115 Khomeini accuses Hadhrat Abu Bakr and Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhuma) of having opposed the clear texts of the Qur’an. Thus he says:
“We shall present a few examples of Abu Bakr and Umar having opposed the explicit laws of the Quran and deciding against it. The general body of the Muslims accept their decisions (which were in conflict with the Quran). ”
On page 119 of his book, Khomeini openly brands Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhu) as a kafir and zindeeq. Khomeini states:
“From the examples of Abu Bakr’s and Umar’s opposition to the Qur’an, cited by us, it is clear that contradicting the Quran publicly and adopting actions in violation of the Quran were not regarded as a serious matter by these two. The Muslims of that time (viz. the Sahabah) either joined their (Abu Bakr’s and Umar’s) party in the quest for Political leadership which was their goal, or if they did not join their Party because of not fully supporting them, they never said a word in opposition to those unjust oppressors and powerful munafiqs (referring to Hadhrat’s Abu Bakr and Umar). They lacked the courage for this…
Abu Bakr who had plotted the whole conspiracy would have fabricated a hadith in contradiction to the Quran just as he had done for depriving Hadhrat Fatimah of her share of inheritance in the estate of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). And Umar – it is entirely to be expected that he would have said that either Allah Himself erred in revealing this ayat or Jibraeel or Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) erred in its delivery. At that time Sunnis would also have supported him and would have aided him in opposition to the command of Allah … just as is their attitude in all these alterations which Umar effected in the Deen of Islam and its teachings. In all these (alterations of Umar) the Sunnis accorded priority to the statements of Umar in opposition to Qur’anic ayat and statements of the Rasool of Allah and that is exactly what they (Sunnis) are following. ”
These are the claims and allegations of Khomeini who vociferously and deceitfully, raises the slogan: “There is no Sunni’sm and no Shi’ism.” In the above “tract from his book, Kashful Asrar, it is abundantly clear that Khomeini is echoing the following Shi’i beliefs:
*That Hadhrat Abu Bakr, Umar and the entire body of the Sahabah were murtads and munafiqs.
* That Hadhrat Abu Bakr and Umar interpolated in the Qur’an, changing and deleting to suit their whims and desires. They fabricated and forged ahadith in conflict with the Qur’an.
The logical conclusion emanating from these Shiah beliefs is that the Qur’an which we have with us today is not authentic since it was the compilation of these very Sahabah who are regarded as munafiqs by Shi’ism. Besides this fact stemming as the logical conclusion from Shiah beliefs, the highest books of the Shiah religion categorically assert the falsity of the present Qur’an. Insha’Allah, this claim will be described later.
Abu Hurairah (Radiallahu Anhu) is a famous name. This illustrious Sahaabi of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) is well-known for his copious narration of ahadith. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) made special dua for Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (Radiallahu Anhu), but Khomeini has the following to say about this eminent Sahaabi and Muhaddith:
“God knows what Misfortunes Islam has Suffered from its inception down to the present at the hands of these evil ‘ulama’. Abu Hurairah was one of the fuqaha, but Allah knows what judgments he falsified for Muaawiya and others like him, and what damage he inflicted upon Islam – But when a faqih like Abu Hurairah or a judge like Shurayh joins such a government, he improves its standing while besmirching the reputation of Islam.”
Commenting on this statement of Khomeini, Hamid Algar the compiler of Khomeini’s writings and declarations, states:
“Shi’i scholars have regarded him as unreliable and even dishonest.”
But, Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) made special dua for Abu Hurairah in respect of narration of ahadith, hence we observe the ahadith in abundance na by him. The following statement bears out the love which Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had for Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (Radiallahu Anhu).
“O Allah! Endear this, your servant (Abu Hurairah) and his mother to your believing servants and endear the believers to them.” (Muslim)
Thus those who are Believers love Abu Hurairah (Radiallahu Anhu). Those who are unbelievers detest Hadhrat Abu Hurairah(RadiallahuAnhu).
Khomeini, slandering the eminent Sahaabi, Hadhrat Samura Bin Jundub (Radiallahu Anhu) says:
“Dissemination of the ordinances of Islam, as well as the teaching and instruction of the people, is the duty of the fuqaha who are just. For if they are not just, they will be like those who forged traditions harmful to Islam, like Samura ibn Jandab, who forged traditions hostile to the Commander of the Faithful.”………..
SHIA SLOGAN OF FALSEHOOD:
Khomeini’s popular slogan is: “NO SUNNI’ISM AND NO SHI’ISM”. This overt call of the Shi’i priests is designed for the consumption of Sunni Muslims who constitute the Ummah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).
However, like numerous verbal professions of the Shi’i priests are based on their doctrine of Taqiyah, so too, is this vociferous slogan of “No Sunni’ism and No Shi’ism.” (Taqiyah is the Shiah doctrine of holy hypocrisy by which it is permissible for them to conceal their true beliefs and profess verbally what they do not believe). How is it possible for there not to be Sunni’ism? And, how is it possible for there not to be Shi’ism? The foundation on which Sunni’ism is reared is Love for the Sahaabah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) while the cornerstone of Shi’ism is Hatred for the Sahaabah. The two religions, viz., Islam and Shi’ism are irreconcilable opposites. The one repels the other. The slogan of Khomeini is nothing other than a piece of political trickery to gain the support of the Ahle Sunnah for the fulfillment of his despicable motives of political power. A group which pours out such extreme hatred for the Sahaabah of Nabi-e-Kareem (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) as the Shiah sect, can never stand on the same platform as those whose article of faith includes Love and respect for all the Sahaabah. Shiahs who proclaim that the highest among the Sahaabah were murtads and kafirs can never themselves be Muslims. Such vile claimants can never be the friends of those who follow the Path of the Sunnah, the Path of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the illustrious Sahaabah.
Khomeini stated in a message for a youth rally:
“The Islamic and non-Islamic powers of the world will not admit our power till such time that we establish our hold over Makkah and Madinah because these are the centers and citadels of Islam. Hence our domination over these places is an essential requirement … when as a conqueror I will enter Makkah and Madinah, the first thing to be done at that time by me would be to dig out two idols (i.e. Hadhrat Abu Bakr and Hadhrat Umar) lying by the side of the Prophet’s grave.”
(Khomeinism and Islam-by Abu Rehan Farooqi).
This attitude of Khomeini is not only his personal belief and personal hatred for the greatest ‘Sahaabah, but it mirrors the belief of Shi’ism regarding Hadhrat Abu Bakr Siddique and Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhu). In the books of Shi’i theology, the following noxious beliefs are propagated:
* When Imaam Mahdi appears, he will order the exhumation of the bodies of Hadhrat Abu Bakr and Hadhrat Umar. Their bodies will be hung on a tree for public show. Their bodies which even according to Shi’ism have not decomposed, will be stripped of their kafan. Thus, the nude bodies of these noble Sahaabah will be put up for a disgraceful show.
* Imaam Mahdi will restore Hadhrat Abu Bakr and Hadhrat Umar to life.
* The sins of entire mankind, right from the inception of the world until the time of Imaam Mahdi’s appearance, collectively devolves on these two noble Sahaabah. Hence, Imaam Mahdi will put them to death. They will then be revived and death will continuously be inflicted on them a thousand times daily, forever and ever. These corrupt and vile allegations are stated in the Shi’i book, Haqqul Yaqeen, the author of which is among the highest Shiah theologians, Mullah Baqir who is also the author of another book Zaadul Ma’aad which likewise contains many vile fabrications about the Sahaabah. In his book, Zaadul Ma’aad, Mullah Baqir asserts that:
* Hadhrat Umar, the second Khalifah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), was a kafir. (Nauthubillaah!) Not only a kafir, but the leader of the munaafiqeen.
* Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had cursed Hadhrat Umar and had prayed for his destruction. As a result of the la’nat (curse) which Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and Hadhrat Faatimah (Radiallahu Anha) invoked on Umar (Radiallahu Anhu) he was murdered by the kafir Persian, Lu’lu’.
* The murderer of Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhu), by virtue of having murdered Hadhrat Umar, deserved the mercy of Allah, hence, Hadhrat Huzaifah (according to Shi’i falsehood) prayed for Allah’s Rahmat to be on the kafir, Lu’lu’, the murderer of Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu
* The most auspicious day in the year is the day Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhu) was murdered and the virtues and excellencies of this day stem from the murder of Umar. In honor of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi Wasallam) and Hadhrat Ali (Radiallahu Anhu), Allah Ta’ala annually-grants Shiahs three consecutive days in which they are permitted to sin freely. The Recording Angels are instructed to cease recording sins on these three days commencing on the day Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhu) was murdered. Three free days of sinning are among the ways of rejoicing the murder of Umar (Radiallahu Anhu).
* Hadhrat Umar (Radiallahu Anhu) altered the Qur’aan Shareef and prevented others from Islam.
These corruption’s as well as many other falsehoods are imputed by the Shiahs to Hadhrat Umar, the man about whom Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “If after me there had to be a Nabi, It would have been Umar.” “the most resolute in the Law of Allah is Umar”.
But, Shi’i priests shout: “No Sunni’ism and No Shi’ism.”
Muslims should not allow themselves to be deluded by the slogans of the Shi’i priests. Such slogans are motivated by a lust for political power. In his futile attempts to seek fulfillment of his dreams to rule the World of Islam, Khomeini strives to lure and dupe Sunni Muslims into his camp, for he is fully aware of the fact that minus Sunnis there is no Ummah, no Islam and no Islamic history. All Muslim lands barring Iran, are Sunni lands. Without Shiahs, Islam exists, since Shi’ism is a religion at variance with Islam. But, without Sunnis there is no Islam, for the only true Islam is the Deen followed by the Ahle Sunnah Wal Jama’. Khomeini understands this much, hence he seeks to woo the Ahle Sunnah by means of his hollow and insincere slogans of “No SHI’ISM and no SUNNI’ISM”. But this slogan is raised under cover of the confounded Shiah doctrine of Taqiyah (holy fraud and holy hypocrisy).
“A certain person asked the Caliph (Abu Bakr) a point of law and he was unable to answer; he was therefore unfit for the position of a leader and successor to the Prophet. Or again, a certain act he perform was contrary to the laws of Islam, hence he was unworthy of his high post.” (Writing and Declarations of Khomeini)
In an annotation on this statement, Hamid Algar, the compiler of Khomeini’s writings and speeches, says:
“The reference here is to certain shortcomings Shias have traditionally perceived in the exercise of rule by Abu Bakr. ”
The Shi’i theologian, Tabatabai, accusing Hadhrat Abu Bakr (Radiallahu Anhu) of having greater concern for Zakaat than the institution of Khilafate says:
“Surely the problem of the legitimate caliphate was more important and significant than tithes (Zakaat), and Shi’ism believes that the same principle applied by the first caliph to this matter should have been applied by the whole early community to the problem of succession to the Holy Prophet. ”
This reflects the Shi’i belief that Hadhrat Abu Bakr and Hadhrat Umar along with the general body of Sahabah (Radiallahu Anhum) usurped the Khilaafat which according to the religion of the Shias was the inherent and divine right of Hadhrat Ali (Radiallahu Anhu). Here the Shi’i priest, Tabatabai accuses Hadhrat Abu Bakr of having denied Hadhrat Ali his legitimate rights. He further alleges that Hadhrat Abu Bakr and the Sahaabah (Radiallahu Anhum) accorded no concern to the question of the appointment of the Khalifah and that they violated the Shariah in installing Hadhrat Abu Bakr (Radiallahu Anhu). The Shi’i belief in regard to the Khilaafat after Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) is that the Sahaabah failed in applying the principle of ‘truth and justice’ because they accepted Hadhrat Abu Bakr (Radiallahu Anhu) as the Khalifah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).
In another crude aspersion cast against the mission of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam), the Shi’i priest, Baqir Sadr states:
“Everything that has gone before Proves that the instruction given by the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) to the Muhajirun and the Ansar did not reach a level which would have been necessitated by the conscious, intellectual and political preparation required to guide the future path of the Da’wa and the process of change which had been instigated by the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wasallam).”
