Resorting and asking for help in Shia and Sunni culture

velayat tv - December 25,2016



In the name of god, hello to all dear viewers of “Velayat” global channel, you’re watching “Habl al-Matin” program.

Several days ago was coincidence with the anniversary of an important and historical event in “Qom” province, the anniversary of the arrival of Hadrat “Ma’sumeh” to this city that was celebrated very glorious in which people welcomed Hadrat “Ma’sumah” is a symbolic ceremony.

Another occasion that we passed today was the birth anniversary of Hadrat “Jesus” whose name is in holy Quran as well. I congratulate the birth of Hadrat “Jesus” to all Christians.

Our tonight’s expert is Ayatollah Qazwini, hello and welcome.

Ayatollah “Qazwini”:

I say hello to you and all venerable viewers worldwide and wish them success.


Thank you. Dear master! In the last sessions we talked about the sixth Imam of Shias Imam “Sadiq” [AS].

The important point that we want to talk about is resorting in the perspective of Imam “Sadiq” [AS]. Unfortunately recently experts of Wahhabi Channels are doing wrong comparison,. They put a person who is absolute light beside the one who is absolute darkness and compare Imam “Sadiq” [AS] with the Imam and Prophet of Wahhabism “Muhammad ibn abd al-Wahhab”.

Ayatollah “Qazwini”:

As you said some of the experts of evil Wahhabi channels receive money from “Israel” and “Saudi Arabia” in exchange of making division between Shia and Sunni.

Our people are fully aware and understand these things, particularly dear Sunnis are very aware of these issues.

There were a lot of publicity against Shia on Wahhabi channels and they showed issues from the books and scholars of Shia, but they found out that Sunnis don’t care about their sayings.

Wahhabis said explicitly that our target is to overthrow Islamic government and create insecurity amongst Islamic nation. They also incited people coming to the streets and write slogan on the wall but what matter is that people didn’t listen to them and it’s made them so angry, we tell them: “We know that you’re angry, but get angry more and more and die from anger!”

It’s quite clear that Wahhabis are angry because Sunnis don’t care about what they say. We’ve said a lot that if Wahhabis want to discuss scientifically, we are ready to discuss.

Our “Maraji’ Taqlid” {In Shia Islam, marjaʿ (Plural: marājiʿ), also known as a marjaʿ taqlīd, literally means "source to imitate/follow" or "religious reference", is a label provided to the highest level Shia authority, a Grand Ayatollah with the authority to make legal decisions within the confines of Islamic law for followers and less-credentialed clerics} such as: Ayatollah “Sistani”, Ayatollah “Vahid Khorasani” and other “Maraji’” have very important issues regarding unity between Shia and Sunni. On the other hand these guys are so shameless and keep insulting, if we want to read the fifth verse of Sura Al-Jumua” about these guys

(مَثَلُ الَّذِینَ حُمِّلُوا التَّوْراةَ ثُمَّ لَمْ یحْمِلُوها کمَثَلِ الْحِمارِ یحْمِلُ أَسْفاراً بِئْسَ مَثَلُ الْقَوْمِ الَّذِینَ کذَّبُوا بِآیاتِ اللَّهِ وَ اللَّهُ لا یهْدِی الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِین)

The likeness of those who were loaded with the Torah, but did not carry it, is like that of a donkey carrying books. Evil is the example of the people who have belied the verses of Allah. Allah does not guide the evildoers.

We’re sure that donkey has been insulted, and if we even read this verse of Sura “Al-Araf

فَمَثَلُهُ كَمَثَلِ الْكَلْبِ إِنْ تَحْمِلْ عَلَيْهِ يَلْهَثْ

His likeness was that of a dog, whether you chase it away or let it alone it pants.

Sura Al-Araf – verse 176

Dog has been insulted and there is no doubt about it. In my opinion the best verse that we should read about these guys is this verse:

(إِنْ هُمْ إِلاَّ کالْأَنْعامِ بَلْ هُمْ أَضَلُّ)

Do you think that most of them can hear or understand? They are like cattle, no, they are further astray from the Path.

Sura Al-Furqan – verse 44

They claim that it’s been seventy days that we’ve sent letter to “Maraji’ Taqlid” but they’ve not answered us yet”, who do you think you are expecting them to answer your letters. Your great Mufti should send letter. When “doctor Tayyib” sent letter, our Maraji’, particularly Ayatollah “Makarim Shirazi” responded him.

No one cares about these guys and. Verses that I read from Sura “Al-Araf” and “Al-Jumua” don’t suit these guys but they’re clear instance of Sura “Al-Furqan” verse 44

As for their letters, we said: “The only answer to fools is silence!”, but I saw that “Mr. Sujuodi” {Wahhabi expert} keeps saying: if “Mr. Qazwini” answers us, I promise to show his response”.

We have many differences with these guys and they insult Shia and Sunni a lot. He even insults “Mulavi abd al-Hamid” but compare to other Wahhabi experts he insults less.

We’ve already said that “Mr. Kalkarabi” has insulted all Shia women. Currently his parents and siblings are Shia, do they confirm your saying or reject it?

Question that he asked is about parts of “Sahih Bukhari” book that is not worth to answer. But I’ll answer it. His next question was about this that “Ibn Taymiyyah” says that all Sunni elders are apostate and infidel. I’ll answer it as well.

I’ll also respond the question of those who tell us to compare “Ahl al-Bayt” [AS] and “Muhammad ibn abd al-Wahhab”, the Imam of Wahhabism. However, these guys aren’t worth answering at all and Sura “Al-Furqan”, verse 44 is the best response for them.

Firstly comparing Shia Imams [AS] with guys like “Muhammad ibn abd al-Wahhab” is comparing light with darkness.

These guys are incomparable with “Ahl al-Bayt” [AS], but to make it clear I’ll say the opinion of Sunni elders about Shia Imams [AS] and this guy. After saying these narratives, I’ll leave the judgment to dear viewers!! We’ve already said that “Mr. Al-Dhahabi” says about Shia Imams [AS] in “Siyar al-A’lam al-Nubala”:

«وابناه الحسن والحسین فسبطا رسول الله وسیدا شباب اهل الجنة لو استخلفا لکانا اهلا لذلک»

“Hasan” and “Husayn” are the grandchildren of Prophet Muhammad [PBUH] and are the lords of the youth of the paradise and if they had become caliphs of Muslims the most competent persons would have become caliph.

He writes about Imam “Sajjad” [AS]:

«وزین العابدین کبیر القدر من سادة العلماء العاملین یصلح للامامة»

He also says about Imam “Baqir” [AS]:

«وکذلک ابنه أبو جعفر الباقر سید امام فقیه یصلح للخلافة»

Then he says about Imam “Sadiq” [AS]:

«وکذا ولده جعفر الصادق کبیر الشان من ائمة العلم کان اولی بالامر من أبی جعفر المنصور»

Imam “Sadiq” [AS] has high position, he’s amongst the Imams of science and was more competent than “Mansur Dawaniqi” for caliphate.

He writes about Imam “Kazim” [AS]:

«وکان ولده موسی کبیر القدر جید العلم اولی بالخلافة من هارون وله نظراء»

He introduces Imam “Reza”:

«وابنه علی بن موسی الرضا کبیر الشان له علم وبیان»

Then he says about Imam “Jawad” [AS] and Imam “Hadi” [AS]:

«وابنه محمد الجواد من سادة قومه»

«وکذلک ولده الملقب بالهادی شریف جلیل»

The he introduces Imam “Hasan Askari” [AS]:

«وکذلک ابنه الحسن بن علی العسکری رحمهم الله تعالی»

When he gets to Imam “Mahdi” [AS], he says:

«فاما محمد بن الحسن هذا فنقل أبو محمد بن حزمان الحسن مات عن غیر عقب قال وثبت جمهور الرافضة علیان للحسن ابنا اخفاه»

“Al-Dhahabi” – Siyar al-A’lam Al-Nubala – vol. 13 – p 120

This is the opinion of “Al-Dhahabi” about Shia Imams [AS]. “Mr. ‘Alusi” writes about “Abu Hanifah” the biggest Imam of Sunnis:

«وهذا أبو حنیفة - رضی الله تعالی عنه - وهو هو بین أهل السنة کان یفتخر ویقول بأفصح لسان: لولا السنتان لهلک النعمان، یرید السنتین اللتین صحب فیهما لأخذ العلم الإمام جعفر الصادق - رضی الله تعالی عنه -»

“Abu Hanifa” has high position with Sunnis. He’s proud and says: I’d become miserable if I were not disciple of Imam “Sadiq” [AS] for two years.

AlusiMukhtasar al-Tuhfat al-Ithna Ashariyyah- vol. 1, p 8

Look, these qualities are related to Shia Imams [AS]. Now see the opinion of Sunni Scholars about “Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab”.

Abd al-Aziz bin Ali al-Abd al-Latif” has quoted issues from “Imam Muhammad bin Firuoz” about “Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab”. There are a few guys that Sunnis call them Imam. “Abd al-Latif” says about “Ibn Firuoz”:

«ولکن تعرف ابن فیروز أنه أقربهم إلی الإسلام، وهو رجل من الحنابلة وینتحل کلام الشیخ (ابن تیمیة) وابن القیم خاصة...»

“Ibn Firuoz” was amongst nearest guys to Islam. He was “Hanbali” and would practice the sayings of Ibn Taymiyyah and “Ibn al-Qayyim”.

“Ali al-Abd al-Latif” – Da’awi al-Manawi’in li Da’wat al-Sheikh Muhammad bin abd al-Wahhab – vol. 1, p 39

This person {Ibn Firuoz} with such qualities says about “Muahhamd ibn abd al-Wahhab”:

«.. بل لعل الشیخ - یعنی عبد الوهاب - غفل عن مواقعة أمه - یعنی محمد بن عبد الوهاب - فسبقه الشیطان إلیها فکان أبا لهذا المارد … الخ إنا لله وإنا إلیه راجعون»

Abd al-Wahhab” the father of “Muhammad ibn abd al-Wahhab” neglected sleeping with the mother of “Muhammad ibn abd al-Wahhab” and instead of “Abd al-Wahhab”, devil slept with the mother “Muhammad ibn abd al Wahhab” and devil is the father of this evil and unruly guy.

“Ali al-Abd al-Latif” – Da’awi al-Manawi’in li Da’wat al-Sheikh Muhammad bin abd al-Wahhab – vol. 1, p 41

As you see “Ibn Firuoz” was amongst the followers of “Ibn Taymiyyah” and he says such things about “Muhammad ibn abd al-Wahhab”. He says explicitly: “Muhammad ibn abd al Wahhab is the son of devil!!”

Wahhabis are trying to compare such guy with Shia Imams [AS] whom even “Al-Dhahabi” says great words about each one of them!! I don’t know why these guys are trying to do such void comparison!!

And it’s also written in “Al-Durar al-Saniyyah” book from “Zayni Dahlan”: many of “Medina” scholars such as: “Muhammd bin Sulayman Kurdi Shafi’i” and Sheikh “Muhammad Hayat al-Hanafi” were amongst the teachers of “Muhammad bin abd al-Wahhab”.

«یفترسون فیه الإلحاد و الضلال»

They would see ungodliness and straying in “Muhammad bin abd al-Wahhab”.

Swear by god! “Mr. Zayni Dahlan” is not Shia!! He was the Mufti of “Mecca” and grew up amongst Wahhabism and died about 130 years ago.

«و کان والده عبدالوهاب من العلماء الصالحین فکان أیضا یفترس فی ولده المذکور الإلحاد و یذمه کثیرا و یحذر الناس»

His father “Abd al-Wahhab” was amongst righteous scholars and he knew his son infidel and would dispraise him and said to people to stay away of him.

Zayni Dahlan” – al-Durar al-Saniyyah – p 112

His brother “Sulayman bin abd al-Wahhab” has said about him: He’d deny his astray, “Bid’ah” {innovation in religion}, and corrupt beliefs.

Are you going to compare such guy with great persons such as Imam “Sadiq” [AS] whom “Abu Hanifa” is proud to be his disciple?!

Aren’t you ashamed of such comparison?! Don’t you feel that one day these evidences and facts will be said on a program and you’ll be decried?!

I ask “Mr. Sujudi” to broadcast what I just said and give scientific response to it; I promise to announce that I was convinced if he gives us scientific-convincing response. However, it’s unlikely that they broadcast this conversation.

They keep insulting and swearing at Shia in their programs, all people know that insulting is the work of the one who has nothing to say! If someone has something to say will never insult. I just want to read a narrative about those who insult and swear at others. Late “Kulayni” quotes a narrative from Prophet Muhammad [PBUH]:

«إِذَا رَأَیتُمُ الرَّجُلَ لَا یبَالِی مَا قَالَ وَ لَا مَا قِیلَ لَهُ » «فَإِنَّهُ لِغَیةٍ أَوْ شِرْک شَیطَان»

If you see that someone’s job is cursing and being cursed, know that whether he’s adulterate or is the semen of devil.

Kulayni” – al-Kafi – vol. 2 – p 323

“Muhammad bin Abd al-Wahhab” is the clear instance of this narrative that Imam “Sadiq” [AS] has quoted from messenger of god [PBUH]. This narrative and next narrative are 100% authentic, particularly second narrative that there is no doubt in its validity.

And it’s also written in “Sahih Bukhari” book:

«یصلی علی کل مَوْلُودٍ مُتَوَفًّی وَإِنْ کان لِغَیةٍ»

Anyone who dies, a group of people will say prayer for him unless that guy is adulterate.

“Abu abd Allah Bukhari Ju’fi” – Sahih Bikhari – vol. 1, p 456

This issue is also written in “Umdah al-Qari” book from “Badr al-Din al-Ayni”, vol. 8, p 177, these guys who keep cursing would better run “DNA” test to make it clear.

And there are many narratives in Sunni and Shia books in which believers were forbidden swearing at others; now we don’t know why these guys keep cursing.

The opinion of Shia Imams [AS] about resorting

It was the issue that I wanted to say to these guys, but as for the opinion of Imam “Sadiq” [AS] about resorting, refer to “al-Kafi” book, there is narrative in this book that its document is 100% authentic.

Imam “Sadiq” [AS] says in this narrative:

«شِعَارُنَا یا مُحَمَّدُ یا مُحَمَّد»

Our slogan is O Muhammad! O Muhammad.

Imam “Sadiq” [AS] has said this sentence while “Muhammad bin abd al-Wahhab” believes that if anyone says “O Ali”, he is apostate and infidel!!

«وَ شِعَارُ الْحُسَینِ یا مُحَمَّدُ وَ شِعَارُنَا یا مُحَمَّدُ»

The slogan of Imam “Husayn” was “O Muhammad” and our slogan is “O Muhammad” as well.

“Al-Kulayni” – Al-Kafi – vol. 1, p 47

Imam “Sadiq” [AS] says:

«اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّی أَتَوَجَّهُ إِلَیک- بِمُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ أُقَدِّمُهُمْ بَینَ یدَی صَلَاتِی» «وَ أَتَقَرَّبُ بِهِمْ إِلَیک»


God I come towards you and put “Muhammad” [PBUH] and his “Ahl al-Bayt” [AS] as mediator and get close to you by them.

“Al-Kulayni” – Usul al-Kafi – vo. 1, p 322

We talked about “Ali bin Abraham” in detailed that he’s reliable, we also said issues about “Abraham bin Hashim” comprehensively.

During the history our scholars have practiced narratives quoted by “Abraham bin Hashim” and “Seyed bin Tavoos” quotes a narrative that “Abraham bin Hashim” is one of its narrators, then he says that all these narrators are reliable.

And Allameh “Majlisi” writes a narrative in “Ruzat al-Muttaqin” book and says:

«(و علی) ثقة (و أبوه) ممدوح کالثقة باعتماد القمیین، بل غیرهم علی حدیثه»

Then he says:

«بل لم نجد أحدا یرد حدیثه»

I’ve not seen any of Shia scholars to reject the narrative of “Abraham bin Hashim”.

“Al-Majlisi”- Ruzat al-Muttaqin- vol. 6, p 45

Next narrator is “Muawiyah bin Ammar”, late “Najashi” says about him:

«و کان وجها فی أصحابنا و مقدما»

He was a respectable and prominent figure amongst Shias.

«کبیر الشأن عظیم المحل ثقة»

Najashi” – Rejal al-Najashi – p 411

And there is also a narrative from Imam “Sadiq” [AS] in “Kafi” book, vol. 2, p 544.

Imam “Baqir” [AS] says:

«یا مُحَمَّدُ یا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ إِنِّی أَتَوَجَّهُ بِک إِلَی اللَّهِ رَبِّک وَ رَبِّی»

“Al-Kulayni” – al-Kafi – vol. 2, p 552

Wahhabis also say that: “commander of the faithful [AS] has said in “Nahj al-Balagha” book:

«إِنَّ أَفْضَلَ مَا تَوَسَّلَ بِهِ الْمُتَوَسِّلُونَ إِلَی اللَّهِ سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَی الْإِیمَانُ بِهِ وَ بِ رَسُولِهِ»

While he says resorting is infidelity and blasphemy!!” you hadn’t libeled him that did it as well!! I have said already that resorting has three kinds:

First kind: resorting to divine names,


«اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّی أَسْأَلُک بِاسْمِک الْعَظِیمِ الْأَعْظَمِ الْأَجَلِّ الْأَکرَمِ الْمَخْزُونِ الْمَکنُونِ النُّورِ الْحَقِّ الْبُرْهَانِ الْمُبِینِ»

Kulayni” – al-Kafi – vol. 2, p 582

Second kind: resorting to good deed is legitimate.

(رَبَّنا إِنَّنا سَمِعْنا مُنادِیاً ینادِی لِلْإِیمانِ أَنْ آمِنُوا بِرَبِّکمْ فَآمَنَّا رَبَّنا فَاغْفِرْ لَنا ذُنُوبَنا وَ کفِّرْ عَنَّا سَیئاتِنا وَ تَوَفَّنا مَعَ الْأَبْرار)

Our Lord, we have heard the caller calling to belief, "Believe in your Lord!" So we believe. Our Lord, forgive us our sins and acquit us of our evil deeds, and take us to You in death with the righteous.

Sura Al-E-Imran – verse 193

And it’s also written in many of Shia Imams’ narratives that one of the best ways for getting close to god is one’s confession to the sin and being sinful.

Third kind: resorting to Prophets [PBUTH] and righteous people: children of Hadrat “Jacob” said to their father:

(یا أَبانَا اسْتَغْفِرْ لَنا ذُنُوبَنا)

His sons said: 'Father, ask forgiveness for our sins. We have indeed been sinners.

Sura Al-Yusuf – verse 97

(وَ لَوْ أَنَّهُمْ إِذْ ظَلَمُوا أَنْفُسَهُمْ جاؤُک فَاسْتَغْفَرُوا اللَّهَ وَ اسْتَغْفَرَ لَهُمُ الرَّسُولُ لَوَجَدُوا اللَّهَ تَوَّاباً رَحِیماً)

If, when they wronged themselves, they had come to you and asked Allah for forgiveness, and the Messenger had asked for forgiveness for them, they would have found Allah the Turner, the Most Merciful.

Sura An-Nisa – verse 64

And it’s also written in Sura Al-Maeda:

(یا أَیهَا الَّذِینَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَ ابْتَغُوا إِلَیهِ الْوَسِیلَةَ وَ جاهِدُوا فِی سَبِیلِهِ لَعَلَّکمْ تُفْلِحُونَ)

Believers, have fear of Allah and seek the means by which you come to Him. Struggle in his way in order that you are prosperous.

Sura Al-Maeda – verse 35

In this verse God has not said that good deed is the only thing that we can resort to, but if someone has good deed, perhaps resorting to this good deed is better than resorting to prophets [PBUH] and righteous people. One has made himself closer to god by this good deed.

The one who doesn’t see good deed for himself and believes that he’s sinful and wants to go to someone who has reputation with god, says:

«یا وَجِیهاً عِنْدَ اللَّهِ اشْفَعْ لَنَا عِنْدَ اللَّه»

“Al-Majlisi” – Bihar al-Anwar – vol. 99, p 247

That’s why commander of the faithful Ali [AS] says:

«إِنَّ أَفْضَلَ مَا تَوَسَّلَ بِهِ الْمُتَوَسِّلُون»

The best resort is good deed.

Does this saying mean that because this act is better, other acts are blasphemy?!

And it’s written in “Muta’” book, written by “Malik”, vol. 1, p 130:

 «أفضل الصلاة صلاتکم فی بیوتکم»

The best prayer is the prayer said at home.

Does that mean that if you say prayer out of home, your prayer isn’t accepted?!

And it’s also written in another narrative:

«صلاة العصر هی الوسطی لانه افضل الصلوات»

Does this narrative mean that – refuge to god – “Fajr”, “Zuhr”, “Maghrib” and “Isha” prayers are blasphemy?! What are these things that you say?!

You guys {Wahhabis} are the instance of this saying of “Al-Dhahabi” who sent a letter to “Ibn Taymiyyah” and said: “youre followers are narrow minded”; but at least have some respect for your viewers!!

And when commander of the faithful Ali [AS] reads this verse:

(اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَ ابْتَغُوا إِلَیهِ الْوَسِیلَةَ)

Believers, have fear of Allah and seek the means by which you come to Him. Struggle in His Way in order that you are prosperous.

Sura Al-Maeda- verse 35

He says:

«وَ ابْتَغُوا إِلَیهِ الْوَسِیلَةَ أَنَا وَسِیلَتُهُ وَ أَنَا وَ وُلْدِی ذُرِّیتُه»

“Ibn Shar Ashub” – Al-Manaqib – vol. 3, p 75

And commander of the faithful [AS] also quotes from Prophet [PBUH] and says:

«الْأَئِمَّةُ مِنْ وُلْدِ الْحُسَینِ مَنْ أَطَاعَهُمْ فَقَدْ أَطاعَ اللَّهَ وَ مَنْ عَصَاهُمْ فَقَدْ عَصَی اللَّهَ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ هُمُ الْعُرْوَةُ الْوُثْقَی وَ هُمُ الْوَسِیلَةُ إِلَی اللَّهِ عَزَّ وَ جَلَّ»

Uyun Akhbar Ar-Ridha – Ibn Babawayh – vol. 2, p 58

And it’s also been quoted from Imam “Reza” [AS]:

«اللَّهُمَّ یا رَبِّ أَنْتَ عَظَّمْتَ حَقَّنَا أَهْلَ الْبَیت فَتَوَسَّلُوا بِنَا کمَا أَمَرْتَ»

People! resort to us as it was commanded.

Uyun Akhbar Ar-Ridha – Ibn Babawayh – vol. 2, p 58

And also refer to “Sahifa Sajjadiyyah” which is filled with resorting from the first to the end, it’s written in there:

«رَبِّ صَلِّ عَلَی أَطَایبِ أَهْلِ بَیتِهِ الَّذِینَ اخْتَرْتَهُمْ لِأَمْرِک، وَ جَعَلْتَهُمْ خَزَنَةَ عِلْمِک، وَ حَفَظَةَ دِینِک، وَ خُلَفَاءَک فِی أَرْضِک، وَ حُجَجَک عَلَی عِبَادِک، وَ طَهَّرْتَهُمْ مِنَ الرِّجْسِ وَ الدَّنَسِ تَطْهِیراً بِإِرَادَتِک، وَ جَعَلْتَهُمُ الْوَسِیلَةَ إِلَیک»

“Al-Sahifa al-Sajjadiyyah”- p 216

And it’s also written in “Iqbal al-A’mal” book, vol. 2, p 716:

«فَإِنِّی بِمُحَمَّدٍ وَ عَلِی وَ أَوْصِیائِهِمَا إِلَیک أَتَوَسَّل»

God I resort to “Muhammad” [PBUH], “Ali” [AS] and their successors.

We have at least two hundred narratives from Shia Imams [AS] about resorting which are quite clear.

So, dears shall pay attention that what they ascribe to Shia Imam [AS] is false and unjust.


Thank you master. We want to know if this narrative “our slogan is O Muhammad, O Muhammad” said by Imam “Sadiq” [AS] and Imam “Husayn” [AS] is written in Sunni resources? And tell us about resorting in the perspective of Sunni.

Ayatollah “Qazwini”:

We said the manner of Shia Imam [AS] in resorting. There is a narrative in “Tabaqat al-Kubra” book about “Abd Allah bin Umar”, “ibn Sa’d” says in this book:

The son of “Umar” was suffering cramp in his foot and couldn’t move, he was told to resort to the best perso, then he said:

« یا محمد فبسطها»

O Muhammad [PBUH] and his problem got solved.

“Ibn Sa’d” – Al-Tabaqat al-Kubra – vol. 4 – p 154

Do you say about this narrative that he’s said blasphemy?! As Imam “Sadiq” [AS] said: “our slogan is O Muhammad, O Muhammad”, what interesting is that “Ibn Taymiyyah” quotes this sentence and says:

«کنا عند عبد الله بن عمر رضی الله عنهما فخدرت رجله فقال له رجل: اذکر أحب الناس إلیک فقال: یا محمد فکأنما نشط من عقال»

“Ibn Taymiyyah” – al-Kalim al-Tayyib- vol. 1, p 173

And there is also a narrative in “Al-Bidayha wa al-Nihaya” book that says: in the battle of Yamama that was fought one year after Prophet [PBUH] died, an army commanded by “Khalid ibn Walid” attacked:

«ثم نادی بشعار المسلمین وکان شعارهم یومئذ یا محمداه»

They chanted the slogan of Muslims and their slogan was “O Muhammad”.

“Al-Bidayah wa al-Nihayah”- ibn Kathir – vol. 6, p 324

So, according to this narrative we should say that all sahaba who were in that war got idolater because of resorting to Prophet [PBUH] and as “Muhammad bin Abd al-Wahhab” says they must be killed!!

And it’s also written in “Al-Musannaf” book from “Ibn abi Shaibah” who is the master of “Bukhari” that at the time of “Umar bin Khattab”, he went at Prophet [PBUH]’s grave and said:

«یا رسول الله استسق لأمتک»

“Ibn abi Shaibah” – al-Mausannaf – vol. 6, p 356

This narrative is authentic, while Wahhabis believe that asking for help and resorting are blasphemy. “Ibn Kathir Damascene” has said a narrative in “Al-Bidayah wa al-Nihaya” book, vol. 7, p 205:

«یارسول الله استسق الله لامتک»

Author says about the document of this narrative:

«وهذا اسناد صحیح»

And there is also a narrative in “Fath al-Bari” book that says:

«روی بن أَبِی شَیبَةَ بِإِسْنَادٍ صَحِیحٍ مِنْ رِوَایةِ أَبِی صَالِحٍ السَّمَّانِ عَنْ مَالِک الدَّارِی»

“Malik al-Dari” was the treasurer of “Umar bin Khattab”. This person has quoted with authentic document and says:

«یا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ اسْتَسْقِ لِأُمَّتِک فَإِنَّهُمْ قَدْ هَلَکوا»

“Ibn Hajar Asqalani” – Fath al-Bari – vol. 2 – p 495

So those {Wahhabis} who believe that putting someone as mediator between ourselves and god is blasphemy, should give the death order of all these guys and cut their head out.

After Prophet Muhammad [PBUH] died, “Sahl ibn Hanif” quotes from “Uthman bin Hanaf” and says: someone had a problem and would go to “Uthman” but “Uthman” wouldn’t pay attention to him. This person went “Uthman bin Hanif” and said: what would I do?!

Uthman bin Hanif” told him: perform “Wudu” and go to the mosque and say:


«یا مُحَمَّدُ إِنِّی أَتَوَجَّهُ بِک إِلَی رَبِّک»

We Shias say as well:

«یا وَجِیهاً عِنْدَ اللَّهِ اشْفَعْ لَنَا عِنْدَ اللَّه»

“Mr. Tabarani” says about the document of this narrative:

«وَالْحَدِیثُ صَحِیحٌ»

“Al-Tabarani” – al-Rouz al-Dani {Mu’am al-Saqir} – vol. 1, p 306

It’s also written in “Mecca and Masjid al-Haram” book, vol. 1, p 176, that someone goes at Prophet [PBUH]’s grave and says:

«یا رسول الله الشفاعة الشفاعة»

What’s interesting is that “Ibn Taymiyyah” says in “Al-Kalim al-Tayyib” book that Prophet Muhammad [PBUH] has said: when you lose your car or lose your way in jungle or desert:

«فلیناد: یا عباد الله احبسوا [علی] یا عباد الله احبسوا»

Shout: O worshipers of god! Help me, O worshipers of god! Help me.

“Ibn Tayniyyah” – al-Kalim al-Tayyib – vol. 1, p 146

This narrative is the clear instance for asking help, did Prophet [PBUH] not know that god must be called in there?! Why do they say: O worshipers of god! Help me out?!

And “Ibn Hajar Asqalani” also says in “Mukhtasar al-Zawa’id” book:

«فإذا أصاب أحدکم عرجة بأرض فلاة فلیناد: یا عباد الله! اغیثوا»

How come that god almighty didn’t say that when you’re lost in desert, say: “O god! Help me out”?! Doesn’t god say:

(وَ نَحْنُ أَقْرَبُ إِلَیهِ مِنْ حَبْلِ الْوَرِید)

Indeed, we created the human. We know the whisperings of his soul, and are closer to him than the jugular vein.

Sura Al-Qaf- verse 16


(ادْعُونِی أَسْتَجِبْ لَکمْ)

Your Lord has said: 'Call on me and I will answer you.

Sura Al-Gafir – verse 60

“Ibn Hajra Asqalani” says about the document of this narrative:

«اسناده حسن»

And it’s also written in “Masa’il Ahmad bin Hanbal” book, that “Abd Allah” says:

«حججت خمس حجج منها ثنتین راکبا وثلاثة ماشیا أو ثنتین ماشیا وثلاثة راکبا فضللت الطریق فی حجة وکنت ماشیا فجعلت اقول» «یا عباد الله دلونا علی الطریق» «فلم ازل اقول ذلک حتی وقعت الطریق»

I was with my father, he told me I went to “Hajj” five times, two times by camel three times walking. Once I lost the way and anywhere I went I couldn’t find the way, then i said: O worshipers of god! Help me out and show me the way, I repeated this sentence a lot and eventually worshipers of god came to me and I found the way.

Masa’l Ahmad bin Hanbal” – Abd Allah bin Ahmad bin Hanbal – vol. 1, p 245

“Mr. Albani” says this sentence in his book as well:

«وهذا اسناد حسن کما قالوا، فإن رجاله کلهم ثقات غیر أسامة بن زید وهو اللیثی وهو من رجال مسلم»

“Al-Albani” Sisilat al-Ahadith al-Za’ifah- vol. 2, p 111

“Ibn Hajar Asqalani” says about this narrative:

«صدوق یهم»

The same sentence that Imam “Sadiq” [AS] says, Sunnis say it as well. In the matter of resorting Sunnis have no difference with Shias.

And “Mr. Sabki” whom “Al-Dhahabi” says about him:

«الْإِمَامُ الْعَلَّامَةُ الْفَقِیهُ الْمُحَدِّثُ الْحَافِظُ فَخْرُ الْعُلَمَاءِ تَقِی الدِّینِ أَبُو الْحَسَنِ السُّبْکی»

A “Salafi” person was translating this sentence: he said “الْحَافِظُ" means that he knew “Quran” by his heart!!

The “Al-Dhahabi” says:

«وَکانَ صَادِقًا مُتَثَبِّتًا خَیرًا دَینًا مُتَوَاضِعًا حَسَنَ السَّمْتِ، مِنْ أَوْعِیةِ الْعِلْمِ یدْرِی الْفِقْهَ وَیقَرِّرُهُ»

This person {Mr. Sabki} says in “Shifa’ al-Siqam” book:

«إعلم: أنه یجوز ویحسن التوسل، والاستغاثة، والتشفع بالنبی صلی الله علیه وآله وسلم إلی ربه سبحانه وتعالی» «وجواز ذلک وحسنه من الأمور المعلومة لکل ذی دین» «المعروفة من فعل الأنبیاء والمرسلین، وسیر السلف الصالحین، والعلماء والعوام من المسلمین»

Know that resorting, asking for help and asking intercession towards god almighty is good. Anyone who is believer knows that this act is good. It’s well-known that it’s been the manner of Prophets [PBUTH] and messengers, scholars and all Muslims.

Then he says:

«ولم ینکر أحد ذلک من أهل الأدیان، ولا سمع به فی زمن من الأزمان، حتی جاء ابن تیمیة، فتکلم فی ذلک بکلام یلبس فیه علی الضعفاء الأغمار، وابتدع ما لم یسبق إلیه فی سائر الأعصار»

“Ibn Taymiyyah” has misled some guys who don’t have intact mind are narrow minded and know a little bit.

“Al-Imam Sabki” – Shifa’ al-Siqam fi Ziyarat Khayr al-Anam – vol. 9, p 3

And also “Mr. Samhuodi” says:

«اعلم أن الاستغاثة والتشفع بالنبی صلی الله علیه وسلم وبجاهه وبرکته إلی ربه تعالی من فعل الأنبیاء والمرسلین، وسیر السلف الصالحین، واقع فی کل حال، قبل خلقه صلی الله تعالی علیه وسلم وبعد خلقه، فی حیاته الدنیویة ومدة البرزخ وعرصات القیامة»

Asking help and intercession from Prophet Muhammad [PBUH] has been the act of prophets [PBUH] and manner of righteous people and asking Prophet Muhammad [PBUH] to intercede and help is fine in all times, before and after his creation and at the time of his life and after his death and also in resurrection.

“Al-Samhuodi”- Wafa’ al-Wafa’ bi al-Akhbar Dar al-Mustafa – vol. 4, p 193

See that how the opinion of Shia Imams and Sunni Imams is close to each other in this regard!!


Thank you, we should deal with the opinion of “Muhammad bin abd al-Wahhab”, we said the opinion of Shia Imams [AS] such as commander of the faithful [AS], Imam “Sdiq” [AS] about asking help and resorting.

We also said the view of Sunni scholars in this regard. Now we should deal with those whose opinion is different than us and these guys are Wahhabis whose Prophet is “Muhammad bin abd al-Wahhab”. Dear master what is this guy’s opinion about asking for help and resorting.

Ayatollah “Qazwini”:

Dear friends I said the opinion of Shia and Sunni scholars now let’s take a look at the opinion of the guy who is called the son of devil.

There is an issue in “Al-Rasa’il al-Shakhsiyyah” book from “Imam Muhammad bin abd al-Wahhab” who was undoubtedly the Imam of devils, he says:

«فی (الإقناع) فی باب حکم المرتد إجماع المذاهب کلهم علی أن من جعل بینه وبین الله وسائط یدعوهم أنه کافر مرتد حلال المال والدم»

All sects say that anyone who puts mediator between himself and god and calls god, that person is infidel and apostate and his wealth and life are “Halal”.

“Muhammad bin abd al-Wahhab” – al-Rasa’il al-Shakhsiyyah – vol. 1, p 147

Of course I’ll say what book “Al-Iqna’” is and who its author is! In one of his debates with a guy like himself, brainless “Aqil” said: “Muhammad bin abd al-Wahhab” has quoted from the author of the “Al-Iqna’” book and it’s not his own saying!!

Look, it’s written in this book page 167:

«وتأمل ما ذکروه فی الأمور التی تجعل المسلم مرتداً یحل دمه وماله منها:» «من جعل بینه وبین الله وسائط یدعوهم» «کیف حکی الإجماع فی (الإقناع)»

Be careful that what makes a Muslim to become apostate and his wealth and life become halal {we can kill him and get his property} is that he/she puts mediator between himself/herself and god, look what a consensus has been quoted in “Al-Iqna’” book

The he says:

«فإن عرفت أن فی المسألة خلافاً ولو فی بعض المذاهب فنبهنی»

Tell me if some sects don’t say so.

“Muhammad bin abd al-Wahhab” – al-Rasa’il al-Shakhsiyyah – vol. 1, p 167

We should say to this guy that you are the instance of this verse:

(بَلْ هُمْ أَضَل)

They are like cattle, rather, they are the more misguided. Such are the heedless

Sura al-Araf – verse 179

Didn’t you see these issues that I just said?! Didn’t you see the sentences of “Ibn Hajar Haythami”, “Sabki”, “Samhuodi” and tens of other Sunni scholars who say that there is consensus that resorting and asking for help are legitimate?!

“Muhammad bin abd al-Wahhab” says: there is consensus in this regard in “Iqna’” book and tell me if someone doesn’t say so.

As for the author of “Al-Iqna’” book, its author is “Musa bin Ahmad bin Musa bin Salim” and it’s written “Wikipedia” website that his title is “Al-Jahavi” and it also says about his compilations:

«الإقناع و هو من أجل کتب الفقه عند حنابلة جرد فیه الصحیح من مذهب الإمام أحمد»

And also “Ibn Imad” has said about him:                                                                  

«لم یؤلف أحد مؤلفا مثله فی تحریر النقول»

“Muhammad bin abd al-Wahhab” says that it’s written in “Al-Iqna’” book that if someone puts mediator between god and himself that guys is infidel and his wealth and blood is “Halal”, while it’s written in “Al-Iqna’” book, vol. 4, p 297:

«أو جعل بینه وبین الله وسائط یتوکل علیهم ویدعوهم ویسألهم إجماعا»

But “Muhammad bin abd al-Wahhab” says in “Al-Rasa’il al-Shakhsiyyah” book that it’s written in “Al-Iqna’” book:

«فی (الإقناع) فی باب حکم المرتد إجماع المذاهب کلهم علی أن من جعل بینه وبین الله وسائط یدعوهم أنه کافر مرتد حلال المال والدم»

We don’t know where Muhammad bin abd al-Wahhab” has brought this sentence from: “If someone puts someone as mediator between himself and god, his blood and wealth are “Halal”, it might that his father devil has revealed it to him; because Quran says:

(إِنَّ الشَّیاطِینَ لَیوحُونَ إِلی أَوْلِیائِهِمْ)

The devils will reveal to their guided ones to argue with you.

Sura Al-Ana’am- verse 121

We didn’t see such sentence in “Al-Iqna’” book. So, it was clarified that “Muhammad bin abd al-Wahhab” has such opinion and has ascribed his opinion to the author of “Al-Iqna’” book.

Let’s take a look at “Al-Rasa’il al-Shakhsiyyah” book from “Muhammad bin abd al-Wahhab” the prophet of wahhabism:

«من أعظم نواقض الإسلام عشرة:»

Ten things violate Islam

«الأول: الشرک فی عبادة الله»

Then he says:

«الثانی: من جعل بینه وبین الله وسائط یدعوهم ویسألهم الشفاعة کفر إجماعاً»

Second: anyone who puts mediator between himself and god that guy is infidel as there is consensus in this regard

Pay attention that this is his own opinion and hasn’t quoted it from the owner of the “Al-Iqna’” book.

«الثالث: من لم یکفر المشرکین، أو شک فی کفرهم، أو صحح مذهبهم کفر إجماعاً»

Third: anyone who doesn’t know these guys infidel or doubt if they’re infidel, that guy is infidel as well.

“Muhammad bin abd al-Wahhab” – al-Rasa’il al-Shakhsiyyah – vol. 1, p 212

In another word, if we don’t believe that those who resort are infidel we’re infidel as well. I want dear viewers to pay attention to what he says.

Dear friends! Wahhabis claimed that it’s been eighty three days that we’ve written letter to “Maraji’ Taqlid” and they haven’t answered us yet”. Your response is quite clear; out “Maraji’ Taqlid” {source of emulations} don’t care about you.

About thirteen years ago I had a meeting with “Al-Sheik”, grand mufti of “Saud Arabia” and I told him sometimes we want to ask questions, he gave me his phone number, email and fax number, after that meeting I returned “Qom” {city in Iran} and after ten days I sent him a letter and asked him three questions, but he’s not responded my letter yet, while he himself gave me his phone and fax numbers and told me: if you have question, send it to me.


He’s received your letter but he doesn’t have any answer to say.

Ayatollah “Qazwini”:

I even asked “Professor Ghamidi” and “Sheikh Muhammad bin Zilo” these questions but they didn’t answer me as well.

“Muhammad bin abd al-Wahhab” believes that there isn’t different between resorting to dead or alive person, anyone who puts mediator between himself and god he’s infidel. He says in “Kashf al-Shubahat” book, which is one of his most inglorious books:

«وأن قصدهم الملائکة، والأنبیاء، والأولیاء، یریدون شفاعتهم والتقرب إلی الله بذلک هو الذی أحل دماءهم وأموالهم»

Those who ask angels and Prophets to intercede for them until they get close to god, killing and getting seizing their property are compulsory.

“Muhammad bin abd al-Wahhab” – Kash al-Shubahat- vol. 1, p 4

And it’s also written in “Al-Durar al-Saniyyah”, vol. 8, p 219:

«من دعا علی بن أبی طالب فهو کافر، ومن شک فی کفره فهو کافر»

Anyone who calls “Ali bin abi Talib” is infidel and anyone who doubts in his/her infidelity is infidel as well.

Look, they say anyone who says “O Ali”, that guy is infidel!! While they say that we are not Takfiri and “Muhammad bin abd al-Wahhab” hasn’t excommunicated anyone at all!! When these guys lie they themselves believe that they’re saying the truth and believe their own lies.

 despite all our differences, I say to “Mr. Sujuodi”: you claimed last night that if “Mr. Qazwini” answers me, I promise to broadcast his sayings; well broadcast what I just said if you’re right!!

If you show these issues, I’ll show issues that “Ibn Taymiyyah” has said that all Sunnis are infidel. Then it’ll be clear if we’re right or you.

One of these Wahahbi experts has asked questions about “Abu Talib” that I’ll answer them later on. I just say a sentence from commander of the faithful Ali [AS] in this regard, someone went to Hadrat “Ali” [AS] and said: O Ali! You have such position but your father {Abu-Talib} is in the hell. Commander of the faithful Ali [AS] told him: may your mouth break!! I’m the divider of the hell and paradise then my father is in the Hell.

Someone said to Imam “Reza” [AS]: O son of messenger of god! It’s said that “Abu Talib” is in the Hell. Imam [AS] told him:

«کان مسیرک الی النّار»

Be sure that you end up to the Hell.

“Ibn Tavuo” – al-Tara’if – p 449

After commander of the faithful Ali [AS], we know “Abu Talib” the best companion because his services are undeniable and we have many reasons in this regard.

“Mr. Siqaf” has written an article which is available on the internet. He’s one of the elders of Sunni who has written greatest book against “Ibn Taymiyyah”. I don’t think that any of Shia scholars has decried evil acts of “Ibn Taymiyyah” as much as him!!

He had comprehensive debate on “Al-Mustaqillah” channel and left no stone unturned. He’s written an article about the faith of Hadrat “Abu Talib”. Allameh “Amini” and “Seyed Muhsin Amini” and others have written many articles about the faith of “Abu Talib” but the best one is his book.

Viewer{Elyas- Shia}

Hello to presenter and Ayatollah “Qazwini”. I have an important question. Do you like dissensions between Shia and Sunni are solved and they become united nation?

Ayatollah Qazwini:

Yes I do, that’s the order of “Quran” Shia Imams [AS] and our Maraji’.


Do you like all people of the world become Muslim and create one nation as well?

Ayatollah Qazwini:

My dear! The matter of unity is not religious unity but it’s social unity. Under the shade of this unity we should avoid insulting each other, and stand in the same line against the enemies that want to destroy Islam and should avoid fighting each other.

Look that how many people were killed in “Syria” and “Iraq”; while both sides are Muslim.


Mr. Qazwini, I can do this but it has cost and it cost is answering a very important questions about the religion of god!!


What do you want to do?

Ayatollah Qazwini:

Ask your question.


Before asking my question, I’ll introduce myself briefly.


Are you Shia or Sunni?


I’m Shia and the researcher of holy Quran and have searched about Quran and Shia Imams’ narratives a lot. Thirty years ago I began doing so and until five years I just read holy Quran or books related to Quran and didn’t read any other book

I wrote a book named “Kashf al-Ayat” and began writing Holy Quran verses in thematic way and it took me twelve years to do so. By writing Quran verses in thematic way I found out that Quran has principles. God wanted me to comprehend the inside of god’s book by knowing these principles.


Ask your question we don’t have time.


My question is that if I can prove to all of you including Shia, Sunni, Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, Zoroastrian and Hindu in a televised debate relying on Quran and narratives which are complied with Quran that your religions have got nothing to do with the divine religion and religion of god is another thing, will you except to give up on your faith and select religion of god and become Muslim to get to prosperity or not?

Ayatollah Qazwini:

We don’t need such Islam, I say frankly that we don’t accept such Islam!!

Prophet Muhammad [PBUH] has more than forty narratives that:

«أَنْتَ وَ شِیعَتُک هُمُ الْفَائِزُون»

Sheih Tusi” – Al-Amali – p 551

«یا عَلِی أَنْتَ وَ شِیعَتُک فِی الْجَنَّة»

Majlisi” – Bihar al-Anwar – vol. 65 – p 136

The founder of “Tashayyu’” is Prophet Muhammad [PBUH]. Sunni elders have confessed to it as well. At the time of Prophet [PBUH] some of Sahaba admitted that “Tashayyu’” was raised by Prophet [PBUH].

We appreciate you effort but I should say that reading Quran that keeps us away from Quran is useless!!

(وَ نُنَزِّلُ مِنَ الْقُرْآنِ ما هُوَ شِفاءٌ وَ رَحْمَةٌ لِلْمُؤْمِنِینَ وَ لا یزِیدُ الظَّالِمِینَ إِلاَّ خَسارا)

We sent down of the Koran that which is a healing and a mercy to believers, but to the harmdoers it does not increase them, except in loss.

Sura Al-Isra – verse 82


He said that I comprehended the inside of Quran!!

Ayatollah Qazwini:

Thirty two years ago I had a friend who would talk about Quran and had great information about Quran verses, once he told me: I feel that Imam “Sadiq” [AS] didn’t have such domination on Quran!!

I told him: I didn’t know that you’re such fool guy to have such vision towards Quran, Quran says about these guys:

(مَثَلُ الَّذِینَ حُمِّلُوا التَّوْراةَ ثُمَّ لَمْ یحْمِلُوها کمَثَلِ الْحِمارِ یحْمِلُ أَسْفاراً )

The likeness of those who were loaded with the Torah, but did not carry it, is like that of a donkey carrying books. Evil is the example of the people who have belied the verses of Allah. Allah does not guide the evildoers.

Sura Al-Jumua – verse 5

Prophet Muhammad [PBUH] says:

«إِنِّی تَارِک فِیکمُ الثَّقَلَینِ کتَابَ اللَّهِ وَ عِتْرَتِی وَ لَنْ یفْتَرِقَا حَتَّی یرِدَا عَلَی الْحَوْض»

Quran without “Ahl al-Bayt” causes straying and “Ahl al-Bayt” [AS] without Quran causes straying as well without doubt, those who stick to Quran and leave “Ahl al-Bayt” [AS] and don’t care about saying prayer, fasting and other religious obligations, we know the deviated.

Imam “Sadiq” [AS] says: Shias! There is not any relationship between us and god almighty:

«مَنْ کانَ لِلَّهِ مُطِیعاً فَهُوَ لَنَا وَلِی»«وَ مَنْ کانَ لِلَّهِ عَاصِیاً فَهُوَ لَنَا عَدُو»

Anyone who obeys god, he is our friend and the one who puts Quran aside and commits sin is our enemy.

Kulayni” – Al-Kafi- vol. 2, p 75

Shia Imams [AS] are the revivers and publishers of Holy Quran.

I apologize to this person and respect his efforts, but about 50 million people are watching this program; if we don’t react properly, dissension will be made.

Regardless someone is Shia, Sunni or Wahhabis; we say the truth. We’re not infallible and don’t claim such thing, we’ll support the one that we’re sure he’s right.


Thank you dear viewers for watching “Habl al-Matin” program. Goodbye.
