In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

All praise is due to the Almighty God, Allaah. We praise Him and seek His help and forgiveness.

And we seek refuge in Allaah from the evils of our own selves and from our wicked deeds. Whosoever Allaah has guided, there is none to misguide him. And whosoever Allaah has misguided, none can guide him.

And I bear witness that there is no other god except Allaah, alone, without partner or associate. And I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and messenger. May Allaah the Exalted bestow His peace and blessings onto Prophet Muhammad, upon his good and pure family as well as upon all of the noble Companions and upon those who followed them in righteousness until the Day of Judgement.

It is intended through this translation of Al-Khutoot Al-‘Areedah to present to readers of English, both Muslims and non-Muslims accurate information about the faith and tenets of the Shi’ite sect known as the Twelve Imamers or Ja’faris.

It is essential for the Sunni Muslim to know the fact of the Shi’ite deviation from the straight path of Islaam taught by the Prophet Muhammad (sallahu alayhi wa salam) and his noble Companions (r.a.a.). Al-Khutoot Al-‘Areedah clearly and briefly presents the actual teachings of the Shi’ites in general, and the Twelve Imamers in particular. The reader will derive from the text an unequivocal understanding of the Shi’ite sect and will distance himself from them and their beliefs. He will realise that there can be neither reconciliation nor reunification of the Sunnis and the schismatic Shi’ites until and unless the latter renounce their perverse tenets. They must return to the pure unadulterated teachings of Islaam held and maintained by Ahlus- Sunnah wal-Jama’ah (the Sunnis).

Unfortunately, it is a common view in the West that the Irani Shi’ites and their so-called “Islaamic” revolution with all its attendant turmoil, injustice and barbarism, are representatives of Islaam. It is hoped that the non-Muslim reader of this work will come to perceive the abyss which separates the Shi’ites from the Muslim majority, and that he will no longer condemn all Muslims for the activities of one deviant sect.


The existence of numerous sects, the majority of which are deviant, is a predetermined fact referred to in the Glorious Qur’aan: And if your Lord [Allaah] had so willed, He could have made mankind a single unified community, but they will not cease to dispute and differ; except those upon whom your Lord has bestowed His mercy. And for this did He create them, and the word of your Lord will be fulfilled: I will fill Hell with jinns and men altogether. (Surah 11:118-119)

Furthermore, Allaah’s Prophet (sallahu alayhi wa salam.) had said: “Verily this nation [of Muslims] will divide into seventy-three sects”, and in another narration: “All of them [these sects] will be in the Fire except one.’ When asked which it was, the Prophet replied: “The one, which adheres to my Sunnah (way of life) and the Sunnah of my Companions.”

Thus, it was incumbent upon us to bring to light the stark differences among the sects so that it may be perfectly clear what each sect believes in and adheres to that Allaah s proof against His slaves may be established:

But that Allaah might accomplish a matter already ordained [in His knowledge]; so that those who were destroyed [by rejecting faith] might be destroyed after a clear sign [had been. given] and those who live [i.e. believers] might live after a clear sign [had been given]. And surely Allaah is All-Hearer, All-Knower. (Surah 8:42)

Shi’ism originated in the first century of Islaam as an exaggerated affection for and partisanship of Ahlul-Bait (the family and descendants of the Prophet Muhammad [sallahu alayhi wa salam]). Later on, it developed into a set of misbeliefs and erroneous concepts which ultimately constituted a new religion; a religion other than that which was taught by the Prophet Muhammad (sallahu alayhi wa salam), and by his Companions after him.

The Shi’ites claim to have a Qur’aan other than the one that is unanimously recognised by all Muslims throughout the history of Islaam. Furthermore, they reject the authentic compilations of the sacred traditions, such as those of the two great imams Al-Bukhari and Muslim. They consider all but a few-of the Companions of the Prophet Muhammad to be apostates, while they elevate their Imams to a position comparable o that of the gods of ancient mythology Unfortunately, some naive or simple-minded Muslims are inclined to believe that the Shi’ites of today have abandoned their deviant tenets and have reverted to the right path. Grounds for such a belief are yet to be found.

A detailed exposition of the Shi’ite distortions and misconceptions will follow in this treatise, but at this point I will briefly touch on some of the views of the contemporary Shi’ite religious elite; the ayatullahs and mullahs whose commands are obeyed and slavishly adhered to by the ordinary Shi’ite.

In a treatise entitled Tuhfatul-Awaam Maqbool, published recently, there appeared an invocation2 endorsed by six of the most respected contemporary Shi’ite imams including Khomeini and Shariat-Madari. In that invocation, Abu Bakr and ‘Umar, May Allaah be pleased with them, are accused of altering the Qur’aan. Those two illustrious caliphs, along with their two daughters, who were the noble and pure wives of the Prophet (sallahu alayhi wa salam) were cursed and reviled by the Shi’ites of today.

Khomeini, in his book Al-Hukoomatul-lslamiwah (the Islaamic government), claims that the Twelve Imams are infallible, and he raises them to a level above the heavenly angels and the commissioned prophets of Allaah; he stresses: “Certainly, the Imam commands a noble station and lofty position; a creative vicegerency to who’s rule and power submit the very atoms of all creation [!] And an essential tenet of our Shi’ite sect is that the Imams have a position which is reached neither by the angels [in the highest heaven] nor by any commissioned messenger of God 3.” He further stated: “The teachings and directives of the Imams are just like those of the Qur’aan, it is compulsory on one to follow them and carry them out.”

In short, Khomeini and his fellow clergymen adhere to all of the perverse tenets of the Shi’ite faith as laid out in detail in Al-Kaafi. Khomeini clearly admits this in his book Al-Huloomatul-Islaamiah: “Do you think that it is enough for us, with respect to-our religion, to collect its rulings and directives in Al-Kaafi, then put it on a shelf and neglect it?”

Al-Khutoot Al-‘Areedah, provides some details from Al-Kaafi, a foundation stone of the Shi’ite religion, so that the naive good-hearted Muslims may have a second thought before cherishing the idea that the Shi’ites of today are different from those of the past.
