This is a detailed treatise divided in 8 sections, illustrating the heretical and Sassanian-Zoroastrian (Majoosi) nature of Twelver Shiism that was propagated by the Safavids and their palace scholar Mullah Baqir Majlisi and their followers to this very day – SonsOfSunnah.com
Muhammad Baqir Majlisi (1616–98), also known as Majlisi II (the second) was of Lebanese origin ( Jabal ‘Amel, southern Lebanon) and one of the most important Twelver Shia scholars of all time. He was the son of Muhammad Taqi Majlisi, known as Majlisi I. Muhammad Baqir Majlisi devoted himself the eradication of Sunnism in Iran (he never really succeeded considered the vast amount of Sunnis still living in Iran). The Safavid state (founded by Turkic Azeris who championed Shiism and Persian sentiments in order to oppose their Turkic Ottoman Sunni rivals and effectively create their own empire on the skulls of the Persian Sunni population) made major efforts in the 17th century to Persianize Shiite practice and culture in order to facilitate its spread in Iran among its Sunni Persian populace. Majlisi was appointed as the palace scholar of the Safavids, he himself repeatedly embellished the reputation of the Safavid Empire (whose kings were known as notorious alcoholics, blatant fornicator and allies of the crusaders) by citing Shi’ite traditions which allegedly confirmed the Safavids’ genuine Imamism,
and predicted their political feats and missionary zeal in spreading Shi’ism (just like many Shiaclergies with regards to Khomeini and his brutal revolution). Mulla Baqir Majlisi is the very person about whom Khomeini said in his book ‘Kashaful Asrar’:
“Continue reading the Persian books written by Mulla Baqir Majlisi for the Persian speaking people so that you do not fall into the mischief of some kind of foolishness”
[Kashaful Asrar, p. 121 by Ayatollah Ruhollah Musavi Khomeini]
Majlisi – despite of non-Persian backround just like the Turkic Safavids themselves – championed Persian traditions (including Zoroastrian rooted ones) and language to the extent that he questioned the hegemonic role of Arabic as the language of creed, jurisprudence and law (to this day Shia scholars, including Arab ones are widely known for their poor Arabic compared to Sunnischolars (in Qom itself, to this very day the language of the largest Shia university “Al-Mustafa” isprimarily in Farsi. Foreign student even have to learn Farsi before entering Shia religious institutesof Iran). Majlisi composed several books on Tradition in Persian and valorized it as the language of scholasticism and thus helped to undermine the significance of the Arabic language in Shia circles. As the ideological strength of the Safavids weakened, clerics like Majlisi made greater efforts to strengthen the eroding image of the last Safavids. in Raj’at (The Mahdi’s Return), dedicated to Shah Suleiman, Majlisi explains in clear Persian how he came across two important traditions, which foretold the ascent of the Safavids and praised their glorious rule quite similar of how many fanatical adherents of the Wilayat Al-Faqih system of Iran believe that Ali Khamenei is the actual representative of the hidden Shia Imam. Same farce, different names and different times.
After the massacre of the Persian people (who were staunch Sunnis and resisted Shiism), Shah Ismai’l Safavi honoured himself the higher Sayyid (he was from a Sufi backround and claimed to be a descendant of the Prophet) or the representative of the “Mahdi” (the Shiite Twelfth Imam). The messianic belief in Mahdi was exploited to enhance motivation on the support of king. In this context, the king becomes a demigod, what all Shiite kings along the way from the Safavid dynasty tothe late Shah Muhammad Reza Pahlavi pretended to be a saint representative of the Shiite imams and shadow of god on Earth. The Imams, Majlisi wrote, had confirmed the ties bonding the Safavid Empire tot he awaited hidden Shia Imam who will rise (Al-Qa’im) from the Prophet’s house. He also innovated and propagated many beliefs and practices that were either unkown or condemned by even classical Rafidi Twelverscholars (Shiism by its very nature is a sect constantly changing to the worse, adopting more heresies decade after decade). Among Majlisi supported and promoted beliefs and rituals, many of which have Zoroastrian roots, are the following:
1) He was a staunch supporter of the pagan Zoroastrian rooted Nowrooz festival.
He did not just believe in the permissibility of this festival (i.e. regarding it as a merely Persian tradition) but actually attributed it to the Ahl Al-Bayt themselves, who allegedly said that the Persians have preserved the blessed Nowrooz festival whereas the “evil” Arabs have abondened it!
-العلامة بهاء الدين علي بن عبدالحميد النسابة دامت فضائله رواه باسناده إلى المعلى بن خنيس عن الصادق (عليه السلام)(1) ” ان يوم النيروز هو اليوم الذي اخذ فيه النبي (صلى الله عليه وآله) لامير المؤمنين (عليهالسلام) العهد بغدير خم فاقروا له بالولاية فطوبى لمن ثبت عليها والويل لمن نكثها،بحار الأنوار – العلامة المجلسي – ج ٣٧ – الصفحة ١٠٨
“Al-Mu’alla Ibn Khanis narrates that Al-Sadiq (peace be upon him) said: “Verily the day of Nowrooz is the day when the Apostle (blessings be upon him and his family) took the hands of Ali (peace be upon him) and took the oath at Ghadir Khum from him and declared his Wilayah, so glad tidings to the one who accepted it and woe to the one who neglected it.”
[Bihar Al-Anwar by Al-Majlisi, vol 37, page 108]
Now before some apologetics try to waterdown this despicable Sassanian-Zoroastrian fabrication of a narration by Majlisi, with the excuse that not everything is authentic in Majlisi’s Bihar, or that Majlisi himself might have only narrated it but not acting upon it, then let us add this: Majlisi in fact did not just narrate this (and other) narrations, he in fact insisted that the Ahl Al-Bayt venerated the Majoosi festival of Nowrooz. He even argued against some Shia Hadith that condemn Nowrooz, for there is actually evidence in Shia sources that the Ahl Al-Bayt condemned Nowrooz (just like the Messenger of Allah condemned pagan Arab festivals). But guess what, Majlisi waged war against such narrations:
Ibn Shahr Ashob relates, that (Caliph) Mansoor requested Imam Moosa Al-Kadhim (عليه السلام) to hold a congregation for greetings on the day of Nowrooz and receive whatever is brought to him. The Imam (عليه السلام) replied: ”I have examined the reports transmitted to me from my grandfather the Prophet of Allah (صل الله عليه و آله), and I have not found any details regarding this day of celebration. This had been the practice of the Persians, while Islam has abolished it, and may Allah protect (us), from reviving things which were abrogated by Islam”.
[Book: ”Nafasul Mahmum” p 448.Author: Abbas al-Qummi. The same Abbas al-Qummi who in his infamous book of “Mafatih Al-[Jaheem]Jinan” explained in detail what sort of extra worship a Shiite has to do on that day!]
Al-Majlisi said in regards to the narration of Al-Kadhim:
قال المجلسي : بيان هذا الخبر مخالف لأخبار المعلى و يدل على عدم اعتبار النيروز شرعا و أخبار المعلى اقوى سندا و أشهر بين الأصحاب و يمكن حمل هذا على التقية لاشتمال خبر المعلى على ما يتقى فيه و لذا يتقى في إظهار التبرك به في تلك الأزمنة في بلاد المخالفين أو على أن اليوم الذي كانوا يعظمونه غير النيروز المراد في خبر المعلى كما سيأتي ذكر الاختلاف فيه . البحار 56/10
“This kind of narration contradicts the narration of Al-Mo’alla (the Kafir Zindeeq who narrated the pro-Majoosi/’Eid Nowrooz narrations!], in fact it even discredits the religious/Shari’ah authenticity of Nowrooz. The narrations of Al-Mu’alla are stronger chain-wise and known among the scholars and it is also possible to view the narration [of Al-Kadhim] in the light of Taqiyyah […].”
Ayatullat Muhammad Jamil Hamoud Al-Amali (who openly accuses the Mother of the Believers of adultery in one of his books) comes up with the same excuse (Taqiyyah) to discredit the narration of Al-Kadhim in order to champion the Majoosi Nawrooz festival:
وبهذا يتضح أن خبر المعلى معارضٌ برواية المناقب المتقدمة،ولا يصح تقديم خبر المعلى على رواية المناقب لإمكان حمل خبر المعلَّى على التقيَّة أو أن النيروز يومٌ آخر غير اليوم الذي يحتفل فيه الفرس إحياءً لسنن المجوس والزردشت الذين أضافوا إليه أموراً تتوافق مع معتقداتنا ،ولا يبعد أن يكون الخبر مدلساً على أئمتنا الطاهرين لإثبات فضيلة ليوم النيروز ،والله تعالى العالم،الخميـــسالتاريخ الهجري18 ذو الحجة10التاريخ الميلادي 15 مارس632بالرجوع الى برنامج تحويل الهجري الى ميلاديتبين كذب ان يكون عيد النيروز موافقا لعيد الغديران اعتمدتم التأريخ الميلاديوان اعتمدتم الهجريفلا علاقة بين التأريخ الميلادي الثابتوالتأريخ الهجري المتحركفهل تتركون موروثات المجوس يا رافضة ؟؟؟
قال المجلسي : بيان هذا الخبر مخالف لأخبار المعلى و يدل على عدم اعتبار النيروز شرعا و أخبار المعلى اقوى سندا و أشهر بين الأصحاب و يمكن حمل هذا على التقية لاشتمال خبر المعلى على ما يتقى فيه و لذا يتقى في إظهار التبرك به في تلك الأزمنة في بلاد المخالفين أو على أن اليوم الذي كانوا يعظمونه غير النيروز المراد في خبر المعلى كما سيأتي ذكر الاختلاف فيه . البحار 56/10
As it becomes clear, doubting the authentcity of these narrations won’t change the fact that the likes of Majlisi actively propagated Zorastrian rooted festivals such as Nowrooz (and with him hundreds of other Safavid scholars and modern day Ayatullats). To put the final nail in the coffin, here some more evidences, irrefutable references that prove that Majlisi was not merely narrating narrations, rather he acted upon them and in fact dedicated a whole chapter of his Zad Al-Ma’ad (translated as Provisions of the Hereafter. He copied that title from the works of major Sunni scholars before him such as Ibn Al-Qayyim), a book that (according to his own words) is a guidance for the Shiite in regards to the etiquettes of prayers, fasting and embracing Islamic month, such as Nowrooz!
In the above screenshot Majlisi dedicated an entire chapter about the merits and virtues of Nowrooz and what kind of special prayers (and Ghusl!) Shiites have to perform on that day. He also mentions that reliable Shia narrations have been narrated in regards to Nowrooz among them is a narration attributed to Imam Ja’far Al-Sadiq (may Allah have mercy upon him) where he praises the Persians for preserving Nowrooz (!), which is a day where Allah
- took the oath from mankind to worship him alone,
- told mankind to believe in the Prophets
- told mankind to believe in the infallible Imams
- saved Noah and his arch
- Jibreel appeared for the first time to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)
- where the companions of the Prophet all gave their pledge of allegiance (Bay’ah) to Ali Ibn Abi Talib (may Allah be pleased with him)
- the Shia Mahdi will appear from his occultation
the narration then goes on stating that there is not a single day of Nowrooz except that the Ahl Al-Bayt are happy on that day and that it is the ‘Eid (!) of them (Ahl Al-Bayt) and their Shias and that the Persians preserved it and the Arabs lost and ignored it!!! Then the narration goes on advising the Shiite how to perform special acts of worship on this Majoosi ‘Eid, including a special prayer, Ghusl, putting on new clothes. Finally Majlisi states that there are special supplications that one should recite when the day of Nowrooz (new year of the Majoos) enters. This is a Sunnah of the Rafidah that is observed to this very day when Ayatullat Ali Khamenei himself, the Revolutionary leader, appears on live TV congragulating the Shiites for Nowrooz beginning with the “special” supplication that Majlisi recommended.
It’s not just Majlisi though, other scholars in his era and even modern day Shia scholars have filled entire chapters of Fiqh (!) about the greatness of the day of Nowrooz, and how it is the day of Allah, an ‘Eid, where one must perform special acts of worship. They have all drunk from the Majoosi milk of Majlisi who taught them how to venerate the festival of the Majoos under the banner of Shiism.The first people to accept the recommended deeds on the day of Nowrooz were the representatives of Hawzah in Najaf , meaning personalities like Shaykh Tusi, then Ibnay Taus, Mohaqqiq Tusi, Sayyid Sharif, Allamah Bahauddin Amili, Faidh Al-Kashani, and from Majlisi to Abbas Qummi (author of Mafatih Al-Jinan) all agree on this day of celebration.
All religious Shia websites and institutes in Iran actively propagated Nowrooz under the banner of Islam and the school of Ahl Al-Bayt. The following is a screenshot from the notorious Shiite Fars News Agency (FNA) that is affiliated with the Revolutionary Guard Corps.After all these facts is it really suprising that these crypto-Majoos who claim Tashayyu’ (Shiism) and love for Ahl Al-Bayt are enemies to those who carried the Message of Islam to the world (the companions) and at the same time deliver lectures on the virtues of NOWROOZ …
… and actually celebrate Nowrooz next to the shrines of the Ahl Al-Bayt …
2) Majlisi propagated the belief that the 12th Imam is not just a descendant of Fatimah (peace be upon her) but also a descendant of Yazdgerd III …
… a spawn of the last Persian Emperor (Kisra) who will carry Majoosi titles, emerge on Nowrooz and slaughter slaughter the Arabs.
The last Kisra of Persia that was crushed by the army of Allah under the banner of Omar Ibn Al-Khattab. Yazgerd III (632-651 CE) advised his people to infiltrate the Muslims and fight them from within.
اشغلوا عمر بن الخطاب في عقر داره
“Make ‘Omar Ibn Al-Khattab busy (fight him) in his lands and resting place.”
(Regardless of the authenticity of this famous quote, it truly reflects the history of the defeated Sassanians who after Yazgerd’s death were responsible for the assassination (by Abu Lu’lu’ah the Majoosi) of ‘Omar Ibn Al-Khattab, the assassination of ‘Ali Ibn Abi Talib (by Ibn Muljim the Kharijite Sassanian Persian) etc.)
After the Muslim Conquest of Persia, a long process of islamization of the Persian culture has taken place and at the same time, great dynamic influences has resulted in a rising Muslim power rather an Arab one. The tolerant, and flexible Islamic superpower on the rise has adapted to the Persian culture, where many Persian Muslims have integrated into the Islamic and Arabic culture. A small percentage of Persians adopted the first Shia principles in the early days of the Muslim Caliphates based on some of the differences and issues among the companions. Non Arabs and particularly some Persians found this a potential opportunity to have the Uniqueness that they have sought to differentiate them from Arabs. The majority of Persians integrate in the mainstream Sunni Islam and contributed heavily in the Islamic Renaissance that followed.
In 1377, the Arab sociologist, Ibn Khaldun, wrote in his Muqaddimah: “It is a remarkable fact that, with few exceptions, most Muslim scholars … in the intellectual sciences have been non-Arabs, thus the founders of grammar were Sibawaih and after him, al-Farsi and Az-Zajjaj. All of them were of Persian descent they invented rules of (Arabic) grammar. Great jurists were Persians. Only the Persians engaged in the task of preserving knowledge and writing systematic scholarly works.”
This initial Persian integration in the Islamic empire reflected a very flexible attitude set forward by the prophet Mohammad based on tolerance and containment. Two of the closest companions and councilors to the prophet were Persians. Salman Al Farsi, was the one who gave the advice to the prophet of digging a trench around Al Madinah City during the Trench war. Salem Mawla Abu Hanifah, was another Persian that the prophet mentioned, to take the Quran from four people, one of them was Salem, and he was the Imam of Muslims in Al Madinah prior to the Prophetic immigration to it, and was routinely leading prayer ahead of some important Figures like Omar, the Caliph. Ironically, Omar bin Al Khattab while dying from wounds inflicted by another Persian man, he said if Salem was still alive he would have placed him as the following Caliph after his death.
Over the following decades, the complete integration of Persians in mainstream Islam had suffered significant breaches due to growing number of Shia followers, and at the same time, the Shia sect started to differentiate itself more and more from the mainstream. The Shia sect. adopted a Persian anti-Arab spirit. Although this sect. started out motivated by political division but the lines between politics and religion have blurred and a new version of Persian Islam has come out. The Shia sect. has evolved in a group of emotionally motivated people with historical grudges against many mainstream Muslims. The historically based grudges use a major political incident which is the murder of the grandson of the prophet, Al Hussain Bin Ali, to point fingers and victimize the sect followers, and charge them to revenge for the death of Hussain.
The heretics amongst the Persian emerged in the early periods of Islam and not just with the arrival of the Safavids. Muslim historians take us back to 644 A.D when three people two of which were of Persian origin were spotted whispering in a side street of Madinah, the capital city of the Islamic Caliphate, remembering the days of Persian Empire and how Muslims completely turned it down as their teacher and Prophet (peace be upon him) promised them and the arrogant Persian Kisra. They started throwing hate sentiment towards one of the greatest Caliphs of Islam and a companion of the prophet Omar bin al-Khattab. Next day, one of these three was Pirooz (Firooz) Abu Lu’lu’ah al-Majoosi (according to some accounts he was a Christians. What is important is that he was anything but a Muslim) who stabbed the Caliph with a poisoned dagger while leading Fajr prayer ten days after coming back from Hajj (Pilgrimage to Mecca). Till now, a large Zorosstrian looking temple stands out that has been built on an imaginary grave of Abu Lu’Lu’ah in the city of Kashan in Iran where annually the killing of ‘Omar is celebrated throughout the Shia history of Iran. A perversion they call “Omar Koshan” (the killing of ‘Omar).
Shi’ism is in fact an ethnic cult that uses sacred Islamic figures close to the prophet Mohammad to seize the faith , neutralize its power, and taint the faith with a Sassanian-Zoroastrian spirit. Persian Shi’ite heretics had a major roles in the formation of various Batini (esoterical) heretical cults, in particularly Shia ones. The Khurramites for example were a Persian Zoroastrian cult in the Abbasid era (way before the Safavids) who openly mixed Shia and Zoroastrian foughts, creating a new identity and fighting the Muslim caliphate. The same Persian heretics were responsible for other un-islamic Shia beliefs such as the belief in a demi-God saviour (like the ancient Persian kings) who is a descendant of Yazgerd III. In the recent years we have witnessed how religious (Iranian backed) Shia websites openly confess to this reality i.e. they don’t even make an attempt to hide these beliefs anymore (note how they mention how Zoroastrians belief that this Mahdi will follow their ANCESTORS i.e. Majoosi religion. And note how this Shia website wails over the fact that the Muslim army defeated the Persian army at Qadisiyyah and how Yazdgerd made Du’a (!) that one of his grandsons (Shia Mahdi) will take revenge on the Arabs.
While it is true that Sunni sources also narrate that Al-Hussein Ibn Ali married Yazgerd’s daughter, yet there is not a single Sunni Muslim reference venerating Yazgerd’s daughter or bloodline at all. Yet in Shiism, Yazgerds daughter is a venerated female Shia saint and it is through her that the spawn of Yazgerd will emerge one day to revive the religion of his forefathers and slaughter all Arabs. This spawn of Majoosi grudge is the Shia Mahdi (who according to Muslims is a descendant of Fatimah and a future Caliph and not a semi-God infallible who hears the prayers of millions of Shias and who will carry Zoroastrian names, emerge on Nowrooz, kill all Arabs etc. i.e. the Rafidi Mahdi is NOT the Muslim Mahdi). Al-Hussein Ibn Ali’s son (Ali Ibn Al-Hussein also known as Sajjad or Zayn Al-‘Abidin) is a well respected Muslim figure and major scholar of the Bani Hashim. Sunni Muslims have narrated from him and respect him highly. Yet the extreme Shia believe of him being infallible is rejected let alone the belief that one of the superior qualities of Ali Ibn Al-Hussein was his Sassanian (Yazgerd’s, a wretched Zoroastrian enemy of Islam) royalty bloodline:
“[…] She [Shahrbanu, Yazgerd’s daugher] gave birth to Ali ibn Al-Hussein, recipient of divine supreme covenant. Ali ibn Al-Hussein was called the son of the two best. The chosen from Arabs was the tribe of Hashim and from non-Arab were Persians. It is narrated that abu al-Aswad al-Du’ili said about it: ‘A boy from Kisra and Hashim; The most noble one on whom sacred symbols are stitched for safety.’”
[Al Kafi-The Book About People With Divine Authority H 1259, Ch. 117, h 1]
Shias rejected the continuation of the Imamat of Al-Hassan Ibn Ali but accepted the Imamat of Al-Hussein Ibn Ali as he was married to the most noble Sassanian-Zoroastrian royalty of Pre-Islamic Persia and hence continued in one way or the other the lineage of Yazgerd the third. Even today in the so called “Islamic Republic of Iran” an entire shrine (!) of that Zorastrian princess still stands and Shias outnumber even Iranian Zoroastrians when it comes to the veneration of her, asking her for blessings, praying to her and all other Anti-Islamic superstitions that Shiism is known. It is suggested that her shrine is actually a Zoroastrian temple where one of their deities named “Anahita” (goddess of water and fertility!) used to be worshipped so essentially Shias are venerating a Sassanian princess in a Zoroastrian shrine all under the pretext of following “the school of Ahl Al-Bayt. That the shrine was originally a Zoroastrian holy place is supported by the fact that a similar legend attaches to the Zoroastrian sanctuary of Bānū-Pārs. The link with Anāhīd is strengthened by there being a sacred pool at the foot of the hill, where pilgrims make petitions before ascending to the shrine itself. This is how Satan has misguided them, pure paganism and veneration and saint worship in a Zoroastrian temples under the banner of Shiism. This is what Yazgerd exactly wanted, fighting Islam from within, distorting Islam under the banner of Islam (as the Shias claim Shiism represents “pure” Islam, a statement that couldn’t be further from the truth):
Her name was memorialized by the name of a nearby mountain and the Shrine of Bibi Shahrbanu. Mountains were considered sacred in Zoroastrianism. Same thing happened in Christendom, old pagan sites getting rededicated to some Christian saint. The figure of Shahrbanu isutilized in nationalist-religious discourse in modern Iran to emphasize the Iranian nature of Shi’ism and the indigenization of Shiism as an intrinsically Persian religion. Often referred to as Shah-e zanan (“the King of Women”), Shahrbanu is remembered by Iranian Shi’as most tellingly in ta’ziyeh passion plays during Ashura , where her tumultuous life story is recited.
Here a video made by Shias themselves proudly presenting how they venerate Yazgerd’s daughter and make pilgrimages to her!
After the Safavids (and current day Iranian regime’s role) in the veneration of a Zoroastrian king’s daughters’ tomb let us examine how Majlisi himself paved the way for the veneration of Yazgerd’s daughter and the idead that the Shia Mahdi is in fact the descendant of Yazgerd who will take revenge on all Arabs by slaughtering them, starting off with the tribe of Quraysh whom the Shia clergies deceitfully claim to follow.
Majlisi attributes fabrications by the defeated Majoos to the Ahl Al-Bayt where Yazdgerd III allegedly swore that he will take revenge against Omar Ibn Al-Khattab and the Muslims, with the apparence of one of his descendants whom according to their narrations is the 12th hidden saviour Imam (who according to the biggest Shia authorities has more than 8 Majoosi/Zoroastrian titles, including Bahman, a pagan Persian name).
“When the Persians were defeated at Al-Qadisiyyah (Iraq) and Yazdgerd Ibn Shahryar (the last Kisra i.e. king of the Sassanian Majoosi/Zoroastrian evil and oppressive empire) was informed about that and that Rustum (his general) was captured, he thought that Rustum and the Persians are all perished until someone informed him about (the battle) of Al-Qadisiyyah and about the loss of 50.000 [Majoosi soldiers, against few thousand Sahabah!]. Upon that, Yazgerd fled to his household and stood infront of the gates of Al-Iwan (his palace, in current day Iraq, south of Baghdad) and said:
“Peace be upon you, o Iwan! This is where I am going to leave you and where I will met you again, me or a man of my progeny […]. Sulayman Al-Dulaimi entered upon Abi Abdillah (Imam Al-Sadiq) and asked him about that. I asked him: ‘What does he (Yazdgerd III) mean with “a man of my progeny”? He (Imam Al-Sadiq) said: ‘It is none other but one who is the arising (Shia Mahdi) by the will of Allah, the sixth (from the progeny) of my father, Yazgerd has given him birth, he is his father.”
[Bihar Al-Anwar, by Al-Majlisi vol. 51, p. 164]
Now if somebody might argue that the above narration might be weak/unreliable, then it should be noted that the biggest Shia authorities who ever walked the earth openly taught such beliefs and (based on the narrations of Majlisi) made a compilation of the titles that the 12th hidden Shia Imam will carry and among those titles and weird names which number 182 (among them Abu Bakr and ‘Friday’, The Time, Firooz!), there are a number of ancient Persian-Zoroastrian titles, including pagan rooted ones and KISRA (the title of Yazgerd and all Sassanian Majoosi kings).
BOOK TITLE: An-Najm Al-Thāqib fī Aḥwāl Al-Imām Al-Ḥujja Al-Ghāʼib (translated to English as the Shooting star). A comprehensive book regarding the twelfth Imam of Twelver Shias by Ayatullat Mirza Hussein Noori Tabrasi (1838 – 1902). This Shaytan was born in Noor, northern Iran, Tabaristan (Mazandaran) and wrote more than one book in defense of the classical Shia belief on distortion of Qur’an! His most famous book in this regards is: Faṣl Al-Khitāb fī Taḥrīf Kitāb Rab Al-Arbāb. Meaneing “final argument in the distortion of the book of God of gods”. No sect besides the Rafidah Twelver sect has ever produced such heretical kafirs who wrote entire books disproving the authenticity of the Qur’an. The Shia world rewarded him by burying near the shrine of Ali Ibn Abi Talib, at the Wadi Al-Salam Najaf graveyard and showering him with blessings, prayers and all sorts of praises whenever they mention him in their speeches or books!
In volume one of the book (available on all major Shia websites on the net such as aqaed.com) the following Persian (including pagan originating ones) names of the Shia Mahdi are listed:
#4: Izad Shenās (‘The one who has knowledge about Izad)
Izad is the new Persian form of Yazata. Yazata is originially an Avestan (Majoosi) language adjective derived from the verbal root yaz- “to worship, to honor, to venerate”. From the same root comes Avestan yasna “worship, sacrifice, oblation, prayer”. A yazata is accordingly “a being worthy of worship” or “a holy being”.)
#5: Izad Neshān (“The one who illustrates God”)
The Shiite author mentions that the 4th and 5th nickname are special titles of the Majoos/Zoroastrians! He says that according to the Shia scholar Shaykh Al-Baha’i they – the Majoos -will call him by these names!)
#6: Istāde (“The standing/risen One”)
Another title that was given to him by the Majoos, according to the Shiite author!
#23: Bahrām (the Zoroastrian divinity that is the hypostasis of victory!)
Now Rafidah can not only call upon their 12th Imam by yelling “Ya Mahdi adriknaa, Ya Sahib Al-Zaman” etc. now they can add “Ya Bahram ….”!)
#24: Bandeh Yazdān (“the slave of Yazdan”)
Yazdan is the plural of the word “Yazd” which is related to the Avestan word Izad meaning divine)
#25: Parviz (a Persian male given name, meaning fortunate)
#26: Khajasteh (another Persian name , meaning benedict/happy)
#27: Khosro (Persian form of the Arabised word “Kisra” i.e. King of the Zoroastrians, the title of Yazgerd and all Zoroastrian Emperors!)
#28: Khodā Shenās (a Persian title, meaning the one who has knowledge about God)
Mind-boggling isn’t it? Shiism has ascribed pre-Islamic Zoroastrian (Majoosi) titles to their Mahdi. On top of that, as mentioned before, their Mahdi will emerge on the day of Nowrooz, as Mullah Baqir Majlisi narrated:
[Narration – as usual – isattributed to Imam Al-Sadiq who is free of Majoosite Rafidism]: ‘The day of Nowrooz is the day when our Qa’im of Ahl Al-Bayt (Mahdi) and the commanders [of his army] will rise. On that day Allah will make the Dajjaal appear and he will be crucified on the church of Kufa (Iraq)’. (Bihar Al-Anwar by Mulla Baqir Al-Majlisi, vol. 52, p. 308)
Kufa? Crucifiction? NOWROOZ?! According to authentic narrations it is Jesus (peace be upon him) who will kill the Dajjaal, not a hidden descendant of Kisra on the day of Nowrooz …
Majlisi’s traditions found their ways in hundreds of Twelver treatises about that connect the Shia hidden Mahdi with the day of Nowrooz and even attribute to him Zoroastrian pagan titles:
Shia book: “Du’a for Imam Al-Zaman [Mahdi]”
Chapter: The day of Nowrooz!
Al-Mu’alla narrates from Imam Al-Sadiq : “Nowrooz is no other day but the one we [the Ahl Al-Bayt] are awaiting the reappearance [of Al-Mahdi], for it is one of our days that was preserved by the Persians and carelessly lost by you.” (‘Al-Du’a’ li Al-Imam Al-Zaman’, p. 94)
So the Sahaba, their students and their students (i.e. Salaf) have missed to “preserve’ the holy (!) day of Nowrooz, but the Persians managed to preserve this so called holy day. This is how the Rafidah portray the Ahl Al-Bayt such as Imam Al-Sadiq who according to the narration is more concerned about Majoosi Nowrooz than any Persian could ever pretend to be. Nowrooz, a holiday that was never sanctified by Islam, this is Lok how much Sassanian-Pre-Islamic-Persian Majoosi customs have infiltrated Shiism, then they wonder why they are being called Majoos.
As for him being an Anti-Arab bigot and revenger of Yazgerd and the Sassanian empire, then there is no doubt about that, despite the deceiving claim of the Shia religion that the Shia Mahdi is the Muslim Mahdi, a saviour from the bloodline of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). The reality is that his characterics further back the argument that the Shia Mahdi is nothing but a Zorastrian-Jewish Messiah whose attribution to Islam and the Muslim Mahdi serves nothing but the misguidance of gullible Shias (and Sunnis). Mullah Majlisi himself also contributed a lot in this field by narrating a number of narrations that are fully accepted among Shia scholars and which state that the Shia Mahdi (Yazgerd’s grandson) will fullfil his grandfather’s dream of taking revenge on the Arabs by slaughtering them all, starting off with the tribe of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and ‘Omar Ibn Al-Khattab (the Quraysh):

[Bihar Al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 333-334. This narration has been used as a PROOF by Shia scholars in other books of creed such as Kitab Al-Ghaiba by Al-Numani, p. 254]
Notice how the narration puts fear and HATE into the hearts of the Shias in regards to the Arabs. Imam Al-Sadiq’s name (an Arab Muslim himself!) is just being misused by these devils who have fabricated these narrations to give their Anti-Arab bigotry a religious flavour.
أن المنتظر يسير في العرب بما في الجفر الأحمر، وهو قتلهم
المجلسي في بحار الأنوار 52/ 318
“Al-Muntadhar (the Awaited One)i) will walk amongst the Arabs and kill them.”
[Baqir Al-Majlisi, Bihar al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 318]
“Abu Ja’far (Imam Al-Baqir of the Ahl Al-Bayt, a great scholar from the Salaf whom they ascribed these lies to) (AS) said: “The Qa’im (Mahdi) will arise with a new matter and a new book and a new a new law and he will deal severely with the Arabs, there will be nothing save killing and he will not fear the blame of the blamer”.
[Kitab Al-Ghaybah by Al-Tusi, p. 104 who narrated only Shia authentic narrations regarding their Mahdi]
Now why do you think the Sassanian-Majoosi-Zionist sadist of a Rafidhi “Mahdi” will deal SEVERELY with the Arabs (with NO EXCEPTION whatsoever)?! Is it because Arabs drink their famous Arabic coffee or is it because they are the descendants of the Sahabah who put an end to the tryannical Sassanian Majoosi empire? His biggest grudge is directed towards the tribe of Prophet Muhammad, Abu Bakr, ‘Omar, ‘Othman and Ali i.e. the Quraysh:
The Rafidi Mahdi will have a special thirst for the blood of the Quraysh!
ص243 كتاب الغيبة للنعماني
عن ابى عبد الله عليه السلام انه قال”اذا خرج القائم لم يكن بينه وبين العرب وقريش الا السيف ما ياخذ منها الا السيف
“On the authority of Abi Abdillah (Al-Sadiq), peace be upon him, who said: ‘When the Qa’im emerges there will be nothing left between him and the Arabs and the Quraysh except the SWORD.”
[Al-Ghaybah by Al-Numani]
Notice how the Quraysh are being mentioned seperately! Prophet Mohammad’s tribe, the most noble Arab tribe to this very day!
بحار الأنوار – ج ٥٢ – الصفحة ٣٥٤
عن أبي جعفر (عليه السلام) يقول: لو يعلم الناس ما يصنع القائم إذا خرج لأحب أكثرهم أن لا يروه مما يقتل من الناس، أما إنه لا يبدأ إلا بقريش فلا يأخذ منها إلا السيف ولا يعطيها إلا السيف حتى يقول كثير من الناس: ليس هذا من آل محمد لو كان من آل محمد لرحم
“On the authority of Abi Ja’far (Imam Al-Baqir), peace be upon him, who said: ‘If people only knew what the Qa’im [Shia’s Mahdi] is going to do when he appears, most people will prefer not to see him because of the killings he will do to mankind, it makes most mankind say: ‘ He is not from the House of Mohammad, if he were from the House of Mohammad, he would certainly have compassion.”
Ghaybah of Al-Numani and in Bihar Al-Anwar, vol. 53, p. 354 ]
On the following Shia website they have simply OMITTED the part where the Shia Mahdi will KILL the people (especially the Quraysh):
يروي المفيد عن أبي عبدالله أنه قال
إذا قام القائم من آل محمد عليهم السلام أقام خمسمائة من قريش فيضرب أعناقهم ثم خمسمائة أخر حتى يفعل ذلك ست مرات
“On the authority of Abi Abdillah (Imam Al-Sadiq) who said: ‘When the Qa’im from the family of Mohammad, peace be upon him, rises, he will resurrect five hundred from Quraish (dead people of Prophet Mohammad’s tribe) and cut off their necks, then another five hundred, until he does this (action) six times.”
[Al-Mufid in his Al-Irshad]
This is their sadistic “saviour”! Ironically Shias (like Hassan Nasrallat) are quick to jump and attack not just extremist groups but also countries such as Saudi Arabia for implementing the capital punishment of beheading (for severe crime) yet their Majoosi saviour is allegedly going to behead Qurayshi Arabs in Zombie-Style, resurrecting them from the dead!
Now the question may arise: How on earth could the Rafidha fool and lure a few (Shias are to this very day a TINY minority not just among the Arabs worldwide but even amongst the non-Arabs and in fact even among MANY Persians such as the Persians population of Afghanistan and Tajikistan who are overwhelmingly Sunni) Arabs into Shiism? Well, the answer lies in some additional fabricated narrations that are somehow the only hope for the Arab Shias (obviously only a weak minded person will miss the bigger picture, i.e. that the default scenario is that ALL Arabs will be slaughtered by the Masonic-Sassanian Rafidi saviour.
“Imam Jafar Al-Sadiq was asked: ‘How many of those who accompany the Qa’im are Arabs?’ Ja’far said ‘Very few’; then someone said, ‘But numerous are the Arabs who profess this cause.’ Ja’far replied: ‘People will inevitably be chosen, separated, siftyed through; many are those who will fall through the sifter.”
[Kitab Al-Ghaybah by Al-Numani, chapter 12, pp.298-299]
Imam Mohammad al-Baqir said that all 313 companions of the Qaim are the sons of Persians (Ajams) .
[Kitab Al-Ghaybah by Al-Numani, chapter 20, page 448]
Remember in other narrations the Arabs can expect nothing but slaughter and not a single one of them will be spared …
“Fear the Arabs because there will be very bad news for them, which is that none of them will come out with Al-Qa’im (Shia’s Mahdi).”
[Baqir Al-Majlisi, Bihar Al-Anwar, Vol. 52, p. 333, and ‘Kitab Al-Ghaiba by Al-Numani, p. 254]
Note that there is no room for the Shiite laymen to deny these narrations based on the assumptions that they might be weak narrations. Whenever they are cornered with the kufr and Zandaqah in their books they are quick to jump up and claim that not all their narrations in their Hadith books (such as Bihar Al-Anwar aka Dhulumat, 110 volumes of kufriyat and perversions) are authentic. That might be true in a general sense, but not in the case of creed (“Aqeedah”) books where Shia scholars have put the aforementioned narrations together explaining Shia creed based on the narrations. That is why almost every single reference previously mentioned can be found in their Aqeedah books about their Mahdi and not just random books of Hadith. Here the sources from their Aqeedah books:
– Kitab Al-Ghaybah by Mullah Baqir Al-Majlisi (this is basically a section of his “Bihar Al-Anwar’. He gathered the narration of his predecessor Al-Numani and others that put together form a classical Shia belief about the Anti-Arab nature of the king of the Majoos, the 12th Imam)
– Kitab Al-Ghaybah by Muhammad Ibn Ibrahim Ibn Jafar Al-Numani (An alleged disciple of Al-Kulayni. His Kitab Al-Ghayba is the most classical and authentic Shia book in regards to the 12th Imam)
– ‘Kitab Al-Ghaybah’ by Abu Jafar Muhammad Ibn Hassan Al-Tusi (from Tus/Khorassan, which is called ‘Mashad’ in present day Iran) who collected only authentic narration in reference to the Shia Mahdi. Don’t take our word, take it straight from the horse’s mouth:
As you can see, the names of the books (or in Majlisi’s case the chapterin his Bihar) are all identical, what is important to understand is that the the narrations in these books can’t be dismissed on the grounds of alleged weaknesss, as Shia scholars themselves have used them in their creed books to explain the characteristic of the Shia 12th Imam.
Now let us continue with the actual onslaught i.e. the savage like nature of Yazgerd’s descendant, the 12th Shia Mahdi. Even their modern day scholars such as Ayatullat Ali Al-Korani (who, just like Mullah Baqir Al-Majlisi originates from Jabal ‘Amel, southern Lebanon, and resides in Iran, Qom spreading his falsehood) sanctify the aforementioned Anti-Arab and sadistic narrations. Al-Korani wrote an entire book about the personality of the Shia Mahdi, called “Asr Al-Dhuhoor” (‘The Age of the Apparence’) where he included the following narrations:
“On the authority of Imam Al-Sadiq, peace be upon him, who said: ‘Then he will head towards Kufa (Iraq) and spill the blood of SEVENTY tribes of the Arabs.’
[Kitab Al-Ghaybah of Al-Tusi, p. 284]
Al-Korani comments on the Hadith (because even he knows it’s too horrific and Anti-Arab):
“What is meant here is that the Mahdi will spill the blood of those who deserve it from among those tribes i.e. his enemies and the Khawarij.”
Of course this is NOT what the Rafidi hadith says! That’s just pathetic attempt to water down the actual text of the narration. The narration itself makes no exception whatsoever (especially if we take other ahadith into consideration which all speak about an onslaught on the entire Arabs race), it simply states what similar hadith state, the Arab will be slaughtered (by a descendant of the last Persian Majoosi Kisra). The narration states that Ibn Kisra (Rafidi Mahdi) will slaughter SEVENTY Arab tribes. This spawn of Yazgerd the third (who is anything but the true Mahdi) is nothing but the manfistation of the previously mentioned story of Yazgerd’s dream. The 12th Imam that the likes of Majlisi and co. created resembles nothing but the Anti-Christ, he is the hope of the defeated Jews of Madinah, the defeated Zoroastrian Sassanian Majoos and other defeated enemies of the Ummah to destroy Islam from within, to take revenge from the Sahabah/Muslims and the Ummah of Mohammad, peace be upon him.
3) Majlisi propagated the celebration of Amir Al-Mu’mineen Omar Ibn Al-Khattab’s (may Allah be pleased with him) demise and the veneration of the suicide, Abu Lu’lu’a Al-Majoosi.
This Majoosi fetish which is knowns as “Omar Koshan (or Koshun) in Farsi is based on deeply rooted Majoosi grudge and racism towards Arabs in general and Omar Al-Faruq in particular, a ritual that unites him and his likes with Persian extreme nationalists to this very day.
علامه مجلسی رحمة الله علیه در این رابطه می فرمایند: و المشهور بین الشیعة فی الأمصار و الأقطار فی زماننا هذا هو أنه الیوم التاسع من ربیع الأول، و هو أحد الاعیاد. یعنی بین شیعیان در تمامی نقاط و نواحی در زمان ما مشهور است که به درک واصل شدن او در روز نهم ربیع الاول می باشد. و آن روز یکی از اعیاد است.
در ادامه ایشان در رابطه با شبهه ای که توسط برخی گفته می شود که روز مرگ عمر 28 ذی الحجة بوده است میفرمایند: اعتبار تلك الروايات مع الشهرة بين أكثر الشيعة سلفا وخلفا لا يقصر عما ذكرهالمؤرخون من المخالفين، ويحتمل أن يكونوا غيروا هذا اليوم ليشتبه الامر على الشيعةفلا يتخذوه يوم عيد وسرور.
یعنی اعتبار آن روایات (در اثبات وفات حضرتعمر در روز نهم ربیع) بعلاوۀ شهرتی که بین اکثر شیعیان سلف و خلف دارند، کمتر از آنچه مورخین مخالف نقل کرده اند که روز مرگ وی 28 ذی الحجة است) نیست. (به عبارت دیگر اعتبار روایت نهم ربیع با گفته های مخالفین رد نمی شود) و احتمال دارد که مخالفین این روز را تغییر داده اند تا امر برای شیعیان مشتبه شود، و آن روز را روز عید و سرور نگیرند
Al-Majlisi says that it (celebrating Omar’s death), on the 9th of the month of Rabi’ Al-Awwal, is a well known fact and practice among the Shias throughout history, it is considered an ‘Id! Al-Majlisi tries his utmost to disprove those who say that Amir Al-Mu’mineen Omar (may Allah be pleased with him) actually died on the 28th of Dhu Al-Hijjah, he says that Sunnis have probably changed Omar’s date of death to confuse the Shias and by this prevent them from celebrating Omar’s death (of course he provides no evidence whatsoever).
Here a detailed article about this Majoosi fetish with more evidences and Fatawas from their top Ayatullats.
4) Majlisi actively supported and revived practices that the Prophet (peace be upon him) came to abolish such as wailing (not mere crying) and self-flagellation for the deceased.
Public mourning, wailing and self-flagellation for Hussein ibn Ali was strongly advocated by the Safavid rulers with the help of their palace scholars like Mullah Baqir Majlisi. Excessive mourning (and wearing black) were unknown to the early Muslim community of the Prophet (peace be upon him), in fact even the Pre-Islamic (Jahili) polytheistic Arabs were not known for it, except for their womenfolk (which makes the likes of Majlisi followers of Arab Jahili women not followers of the Ahl Al-Bayt. However, mourning processions, the veneration of kings and eulogies for them were all known in pre-Islamic Persia and hence revived by the Safavids. The tragedy of Siavash and its aftermath is narrated in several Medieval Persian texts. In Tarikh-e Bukhara,an early tenth century historical account, we encounter a detailed depiction of an early Iranian mourning ceremony, where the author records the communal custom of remembering the untimely death of the young innocent mythical hero, Siavash.
According to the text “the people of Bukhara [ancient Persian city in current day Uzbekistan) perform/have amazing hymns/songs pertaining to the killing of Siavash and minstrels call these hymns/songs, kin-e Siavash(Avenging Siavash). Al-Hussein Ibn Ali is a replacement of Siavash, the Majoos have changed the names but have preserved their pagan rituals all in the name of Islam in order to distort the image of Islam and to destroy it from within with Majoosi elements. The innovated mourning procession for Al-Hussein Ibn Ali and the the tradition of self-laceration was promoted by the Safavids and is practiced to this very day all around the (bloody) Shia world, thanks to heretical innovators like Mullah Baqir Majlisi who misused the love and passion the Shiites have for the blessed Household of the Prophet (peace be upon him) to keep them busy with rituals that the Ahl Al-Bayt would have never sanctioned.
5) Majlisi and the Safavids encouraged the erectionand the visitation (ziyarat) of not just the (wasteful) tombs/shrines of the “infallible” Imams …
… but also the tombs of hundreds and thousands of “Imamzadahs” (descendants of the Imams) which stand to this very day in Iran and are an essential source of income and propagation of faith for Shiite clergy.
The Ahl Al-Bayt never sanctified the waste of money and resources on golden tombs, shrines, in fact Sunni and Shia hadith prove that the Ahl Al-Bayt insisted to have the most simple graves possible, according to the Sunnah of their grandfather, the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him).
6) He supported the belief in the corruption of the Qur’an …
going as far as to state that more than half of the Qur’an has been lost and that believing in the corruption of the Qur’an is a logical necessity in the Twelver religion and that numerous (Mutawatir) narrations from the Ahl Al-Bayt themselves are evidence for that:
و الأخبار من طريق الخاصة و العامة في النقص و التغيير متواترة، و العقل يحكم بأنه إذ كان القرآن متفرقا منتشرا عند الناس، و تصدي غير المعصوم لجمعه يمتنع عادة أن يكون جمعه كاملا موافقا للواقع، لكن لا ريب في أن الناس مكلفون بالعمل بما في المصاحف و تلاوته حتى يظهر القائم عليه السلام، و هذا معلوم متواتر من طريق أهل البيت عليهم السلام و أكثر أخبار هذا الباب مما يدل على النقص و التغيير و سيأتي كثير منها في الأبواب”
“and traditions from the ways of the elite [Shia] and the the commoners [Sunnah] regarding omission and changes are numerous (Mutawatir), and logic dectates that if the Quran was seperated and spread amongst people, then if a fallible has tried to collect it, then it is highly unlikely that its collection would be complete and in compliance with reality. However, there is no doubt that people are obliged to work with what is included in the Mushafs and recite it until the Qa’im [Al-Mahdi], peace be upon him, appears, and this is known through numerous traditions (Mutawatir) from the way of Ahl Al-Bayt, peace be upon them, and most traditions relating to this topic point to omission and change, and many of it will be related in the chapters […]”
[Mir’at Al-‘Uqul 3/31 by Muhammad Baqir Al-Majlisi]
There is a not great need to comment his saying. Simply in his view narrations about ommision and change in Quran are just reality but numerous, due to the fallible Sahabah who compiled it. Yet it is very common to see most Shia laymen and even many of their scholars claiming that the accusation of Tahrif Al-Qur’an (believe in the distortion of the Qur’an) is a “Wahhabi” myth, a lie invented to tarnish the image of the “school of Ahl Al-Bayt”. The reality is that many of the scholars, in fact the top ones who ever walked the earth openly believed in Tahrif and propagated this belief, including Mullah Baqir Al-Majlisi, the Safavid palace scholar and proud of the “Madhab of Ahl Al-Bayt”. The quote above is not some single incident, he has a number of clear-cut admissions that you can study >here<.
7) He supported and propagated the Safavid Bid’ah of including Ali into the Adhan.
The Shias who in their propaganda always claim that the Sunni schools are actually a result of the Umayyad dynasties are themselves a product of an actual dynasty that infested their sect with even more heresies and innovations. It were the Safavid kings who reversed the classical Shia position of NOT adding the third testimony (“I bear witness that Ali is the friend of Allah”) to the Adhan. The Safavids palace and court scholars such as Majlisi I (Muhammad Taqi Majlisi, father of Muhammad Baqir Majlisi), his son (Muhammad Baqir) and other Safavid scholars all the way up to their desandents, the Ayatullats of Qom and elsewhere, are propagating this Safavid Bid’ah (innovation) to this very day (at the same time they have the audacity of accusing ‘Omar of adding to the Adhan based on weak and fabricated narrations they are obsessed with!). According to his statements in these books, the wilayah in the Adhan was already prominent (because of Shah Isma’il’s decree). Majlisi’s I teacher stopped reciting the 3rd testimony in adhan, because of that he was being accused of being Sunni, so Majlisi I convinced him to do so. Then, his son al-Majlisi II (Muhammad Baqir Majlisi) followed his father’s footsteps and tried to provide “proofs” for it in his “Bihar al-Anwar” (seas of lights, which in realy is Bihar Al-Dhulumat/Jame’ Al-Khurafat, seas of darknesses/Collection of superstitions). Interestingly this Safavid Bid’ah (that was previously known in the Buyid (dynasty) Rafidi era) was a revival of a Bid’ah of a group amongst Rafidah who were even tooextreme according to the majority of the Twelver Rafidah. In fact the likes of Tusi (known as the SHAYKH of the Shia sect!) cursed all those who said the third testimony in the Adhan, yet today an accursed Buyid/Safavid Bid’ah has become an essential part of Twelver Shiism, thanks to Muhammad Baqri Majlisi, his father and the modern day Ayatullats who are following their footsteps:
A Bid’ah leads to another Bid’ah and the misguidance and heresies laid down by the likes of the Safavids and their stooges such as Majlisi have ended up to even crazier heresies, of course everything justified in the name of the Ahl Al-Bayt who by Allah are innocent of these Kafir heretics:
8) Majlisi did not just propagated the cursing of the companions and wives of the Prophet (peace be upon him) …
… he also declared anybody loving them or refraining from cursing them to be Nasibis (enemies of the Ahl Al-Bayt, the worst disbelievers in the eyes of the Rafidah Shia)
As stated in the beginning of the article, Muhammad Baqir Majlisi devoted himself the eradication of Sunnism inIran, he was a court scholar of the drunkard and brutal Safavids who misused Shiism to oppose (the Sunni) Ottomans and establish their own empire. The role of Majlisi was to spread Shia beliefs in a land that barely had any Shias (i.e. Pre-Safavid Sunni Persia). The Safavids crimes of mass executions against many Persian Sunnis who rejected to convert from Sunnism to Shiism are well recorded and can be studied in any decent book about the Safavids. The one who fed the barbaric and savage (mostly Turkic Qizilbash) soldiers of the Safavids were the likes of Muhammad Baqir Majlisi who – unlike most Shias before the Safavid era – completely abondened Taqiyyah and openly displayed Shia beliefs which are based on the opposition and slandering and cursing of the absolute majority of the Prophet’s compaions who of course were highly respected during his time.
Majlisi says in his book, “Haqq Al-Yaqin”p. 519:
في حق اليقين، لمحمد الباقر المجلسي، ص519 وعقيدتنا (الشيعة) في التبرؤ: أننا نتبرأ من الأصنام الأربعة: أبي بكر وعمر وعثمان ومعاوية، والنساء الأربع: عائشة وحفصة وهند وأم الحكم، ومن جميع أتباعهم وأشياعهم، وأنهم شر خلق الله على وجه الأرض، وأنه لا يتم الإيمان بالله ورسوله والأئمة إلا بعد التبرؤ من أعدائهم
“Our belief in regards to “Tabarra” [disassociation from the enemies of the Ahl Al-Bayt] : We [Twelver Shiites] disaccociate ourselves from the four idols: Abu Bakr, ‘Omar, ‘Othman and Mu’awiyah. And from the four women: ‘Aisha, Hafsah, Hind and Umm Al-Hakam, and from all their followers and partisans, and that these are the worst creatures that Allah has ever created, and that the belief in Allah, his Messenger and the Imams will not be completed until we disaccociate ourselves from their enemies.”
As you can see, he did not just oppose Sunnism and attacked it whenever he could, but he also (back then there were no “Wahhabis” so Shias could oppose Sunnism by stating that they are only against “Wahhabis” not “true” Sunnis!) outlawed all Sunnis, everybody who held Sunnis beliefs, without exception, by stating that all Sunnis by definition are the enemies of Ahl Al-Bayt and Nasibis (Nawasib, enemies of the Ahl Al-Bayt who are regarded as the worst kind of disbelievers according to the Shia). The life and wealth of Nasibis is of course not protected and this declaration of Majlisi gave the Safavids religious justification (all in the name of the Ahl Al-Bayt) to slaughter as much as Persian Sunnis as possible. Majlisi stated:
“[…] people wrote to Imam Ali Al-Naqi (peace be upon him) asking: Does one, who prefers Abu Bakr and Omar over the Chief of the Believer [Ali] (peace be upon him) and believes in the Imamate of both of them, a Nasibi? The Imam (peace be upon) replied: ‘One, who believes this, is a Nasibi.'”
[Haq Al-Yaqin by Mullah Baqir Al-Majlisi, p. 987]
There is much more crazy Takfiri, cursing and blatant fabricated stuff attributed to the Ahl Al-Bayt to quench the thirst of blood and takfir of the Rafidah like Majlisi and the rest of the Safavids who committed a genocide against Sunnis, in particular the Sunnis of Persia:
قال المجلسي ( جلاء العيون ص: ٤٥ ) لا مجال لعاقل أن يشك في كفر عمر فلعنة الله ورسوله عليه وعلى من اعتبره مسلماً وعلى من يكف عن لعنه
“It is impossible for a sane person to doubt the kufr (disbelief) of Omar, so may the la’nah (cursing) of Allah , His Messenger be upon him and upon anyone who considers him [‘Omar] a Muslim and anyone who restrains from cursing him.”
[Jila Al-‘Uyoon, page 45 by Muhammad Baqir Majlisi)
The kafir Majlisi mastered the cursing, slandering and insulting of the Sahabah to an extent that he actually explained in depth how, when and how many times one has to curse the Sahabah. In fact vol. 29, 30 and 31 of his 110 volume “Bihar Al-Anwar” (Bihar Al-Dhulamaat wa Al-Khurafat) are solely dedicated to the cursing of the Sahabah.
