Khāqāni, a Persian Sunni poet on the Rafidah (Shia)

10923559_777388372298928_8032703292211313572_nKhāqāni (1121 – 1190, Tabriz), was a Persian poet during the pre-Safavid era (where the majority of Persians in what is known today as Iran were staunch Sunnis).

He was born in the historical region known as Shirvan (located now in present country of Azerbaijan), under the Shirvanshah (a vassal of the Seljuq empire) and died in Tabriz (Tabriz used to be a majority Persian city of staunch Sunnis, today it’s majority Azeri and Rafidi), Iran.Ironically many Iranians (including nationalist) love to attribute him to themselves, not realising that
1. He was a proud and believing Muslim
2. He was a Sunni, a orthodox Muslim who despised the Rafidah with a passion

Translating poems is not easy and in any case it takes the sweetness of its original, but here a try:


این رافضیان که امت شیطانند
بی‌دینانند و سخت بی‌ایمانند
از بس که خطا فهم و غلط پیمانند
خاقانی را خارجی می‌دانند

These Rafidis are the Ummah (nation) of Shaytan (Satan) ***
They have no religion and are stubborn without Iman (belief) ***
They are so weak in comprehension and treacherous ****
That they consider Khāqāni from amongst the Kharijites ***

(Kharaqi had probably a lot of debates and discussion with the Rafidah. And how striking the similarity of his situation is to ours, for whoever has ever debated the Rafidah knows how weak their are in comprehending the most simplest issues, how biased they are and how they accuse everyone who opposes them with nicknames (today they use ‘Takfiri-Wahhabi’ etc in the past it was Khariji or Nasibi).
Khāqāni like the absolute majority of Persian poets (like Saadi Shirazi, Attar, Hafez etc.) is Sunni and they draw him according to Persian traditions. Ironically the Rafidah, even the Arab ones draw their Imams in a typical Persian fashion, with the addition of female facial features like plucked eyebrow and a typical feminine face, something that is barely even done for the Persian poets like Khāqāni)
