Visiting [the shrine] of Husayn – on the Day of ‘Arafah

Filed under: Creed, Imaams, Karbala — Tags: , , , , , , — swaarim @ 12:52 pm

Now , We as Muslims believe – in our aqeedah [creed] – that we cannot prescribe a punishment or a reward for an action , except by a clear authentic text.

And we as Muslims believe that worshipping graves is a nullifier of Islam – if done willingly and by knowledge.

That is why the Prophet (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam) said among his last words -what means :

“Allaah cursed the jews and the christians – they took the graves of their prophets and their pious people – as places of worship :  do not imitate them.”  [Agreed upon]

And in Saheeh Muslim :

“Verily, I bear witness before Allah that I have taken none of you as my Khaleel, for truly, Allah has taken me as His Khaleel, just as He took Ibraheem (as ) as a Khaleel. If I were to take any man from my Ummah as a khaleel, it would be Abu Bakr. Your predecessors used to take their Prophets’ graves as places of worship, so do not make graves into places of worship for I have forbidden you to do this.”


Now lets look at those who say they love Ahlul Bayt,  and that they are their followers.  While we know in reality the Ahlul Bayt [the prophets family] are all Ahlu-Sunnah [people who held on to the teachings of the pure Sunnah.]    But What is the creed of the shia on grave worshipping ?

We bring this quote from the  book Kaamil az-Ziyaarat [the old print]:

 ” Whoever visits the grave of Husayn (may Allaah be pleased with him) on the day of ‘Arafa ; Allaah records for him [the reward] of thousands and thousands of Hajj which is done toghether with [Imaam] Qaim, and thousands and thousands of Umrah which is done toghether with the Prophet (sallahAllahu alayhi wasallam), and the reward of setting free thousands and thousands slaves, and the reward of riding thousands and thousands of horses [striving] in the path of Allaah.

And Allaah says : ‘My salve is a siddeq [one who affirms] , he has believed in My promise.’   And the angels say : ‘ so- and so  is a siddeq, Allaah has recommended him…”

end of quote.

Now this is clearly false, I know you realize that inshaAllaah.

But if you think of it :

The day of Arafah is the main day [The main ritual] of Hajj. 

So if we tell people to go to the shrine -as these liars are saying [and promise them this reward]-  we are actually directing them away from Hajj ! 

And this is their sole intention,  the rawaafidha have proven they have their own rituals and their sacred places and times !
