The aqaid of Fatimah, Ali, Hassan and Hussain may Allah be pleased with them.

A) Ali radhiAllahanho would never accomodate innovators.

If Ali radhiAllahanho was alive today, he would never accomodate innovators in religion who started various new Eids like Ghadeer, Mubahila, birthdays of ahlul bayt and Prophet peace be upon him, those who slaughter for anyone besides Allah.

Abu Tufail reported:

We said to ‘Ali b. Abi Talib: Inform us about something which Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) told you in secret, whereupon he said: He told me nothing in secret which he kept secret from people, but I heard him say: Allah cursed him who sacrificed for anyone besides Allah; and cursed him who accommodated an innovator; and Allah cursed him who cursed his parents and Allah cursed him who changed the boundary lines (of the land possessed by him).

Sahih Muslim Hadith 4877

Mulla Ali al Qari commented The meaning is:

مَا أَدْرِي هَلْ هُوَ مُخْتَصٌّ بِنَا، أَوْ يَعُمُّ النَّاسَ أَيْضًا؟

, I do not know if it (these sayings) are specific to us (ahlul bayt) or if it applies to other people as well.

Mirqaat 4070

This also proves Ali radhiAllahanho was not knower of unseen, he also levelled the graves, he taught his sons Husnayn Kareemayn may Allah be pleased with them to reply only on Allah, and don’t ask help of anyone.

B) Tawheed in Nahjul Balagha. Read it once.

Rafidhi and B party:

Ali , Hasan and Hussain are the Mushkil kusha.

But Ali radhiAllahanho said to Hasan radhiAllahanho:

وَأَلْجِئْ نَفْسَكَ فِي أُمُورِكَ كُلِّهَا إِلَى إِلهِكَ، فَإِنَّكَ تُلْجِئُهَا إِلَى كَهْف حَرِيز، وَمَانِع عَزِيز. وَأَخْلِصْ فِي الْمَسْأَلَةِ لِرَبِّكَ، فَإِنَّ بِيَدِهِ الْعَطَاءَ وَالْحِرْمَانَ، وَأَكْثِرِ الاِْسْتِخَارَةَ وَتَفَهَّمْ وَصِيَّتِي، وَلاَ تَذْهَبَنَّ عَنْكَ صَفْحاً،

In all affairs resign yourself to Allah, because you will thus be resigning yourself to a secure shelter and a strong protector. You should ask only from your Lord because in His hand is all the giving and depriving. Seek good (from Allah) as much as you can. Understand my advice an do not turn away from it, because the best saying is that which benefits. (Nahjul Balagha sermon no. 31)

They: You can’t have connection with Allah without asking their help. They are our mediators.

But Ali ra adviced Hasan ra

وَأَيُّ سَبَب أَوْثَقُ مِنْ سَبَب بَيْنَكَ وَبَيْنَ اللهِ إِنْ أَنْتَ أَخَذْتَ بِهِ،

No connection is more reliable than the connection between you and Allah provided you take hold of it. (Nahjul Balagha no. 31)

They: Wahabi gustakh they know everything.

Ali ra to Hasan ra:

وَأَنَّ الدُّنْيَا لَمْ تَكُنْ لِتَسْتَقِرَّ إِلاَّ عَلَى مَا جَعَلَهَا اللهُ عَلَيْهِ مِنَ النَّعْمَاءِ، وَالاْبْتِلاَءِ، وَالْجَزَاءِ فِي الْمَعَادِ، أَوْ مَا شَاءَ مِمَّا لاَ تَعْلَمُ، فَإِنْ أَشْكَلَ عَلَيْكَ شَيْءٌ مِنْ ذلِكَ فَاحْمِلْهُ عَلَى جَهَالَتِكَ، فَإِنَّكَ أَوَّلُ مَا خُلِقْتَ بِهِ جَاهِلا ثُمَّ عُلِّمْتَ، وَمَا أَكْثَرَ مَا تَجْهَلُ مِنَ الاْمْرِ، وَيَتَحَيَّرُ فِيهِ رَأْيُكَ، وَيَضِلُّ فِيهِ بَصَرُكَ ثُمَّ تُبْصِرُهُ بَعْدَ ذلِكَ! فَاعْتَصِمْ بِالَّذِي خَلَقَكَ وَرَزَقَكَ وَسَوَّاكَ، وَلْيَكُنْ لَهُ تَعَبُّدُكَ، وَإِلَيْهِ رَغْبَتُكَ، وَمِنْهُ شَفَقَتُكَ.

This world continues in the way Allah has made it with regard to its pleasures, trials, rewards on the Day of Judgement and all that He wishes and you do not know. If anything of this advice is not understood by you then attribute it to your ignorance of it, because when you were first born you were born ignorant. Thereafter, you acquired knowledge. There are many matters of which you are ignorant and in which your sight first wonders and your eye wanders then after this you see them. Therefore, cling to Him Who created you, fed you and put you in order

Nahjul Balagha no. 31

And he also said:

وَدَعِ الْقَوْلَ فِيمَا لاَ تَعْرِفُ، وَالْخِطَابَ فِيمَا لَمْ تُكَلَّفْ،

Give up discussing what you do not know and speaking about what does not concern you. (Nahjul Balagha no. 31)

Ali RadhiAllahanho also said:

والله المستعان على نفسي وأنفسكم، وهو حسبي ونعم الوكيل

And Allah is the helper (mushkil kusha) for myself and yourselves, and He is sufficient for me, and He is the best disposer of affairs.

Nahjul Balagha 2/114.

They: Speechless

C) The pious among the ahlul bayt can’t help from the graves.

1. When an unseen creature’s voice was heard at the grave of Ahlul Bayt.

Imam al Bukhari mentioned

ولما مات الحسن بن الحسن بن علي رضي الله عنهم ضربت امرأته القبة على قبره سنة ثم رفعت فسمعوا صائحا يقول ألا هل وجدوا ما فقدوا فأجابه الآخر بل يئسوا فانقلبوا

and when al-Hasan ibn al-Hasan ibn ‘Ali (Allah be pleased with them) died, his wife constructed a tent over his grave for a year, and then it was lifted, and they heard a caller saying: Behold, have they found what they lost? Another replied: No, they despaired and turned away.” [Saheeh al Bukhari, Funerals (Al-Janaa’iz), chapter 61 What is disliked of establishing places of worship (mosques) over the graves]

Ibn al Munayyir said:

، فجاءتهم الموعظة على لسان الهاتفين بتقبيح ما صنعوا ، وكأنهما من الملائكة ، أو من مؤمني الجن

An unseen voice was heard, which stated that this practice is ugly. This voice came from Angels or Momin Jinn. [Fath al Bari , Kitab al Janaiz, roughly translated]

Clearly Hasan bin Hasan bin Ali couldn’t help his wife,  and the aqeeda of his wife is also clear. That when she couldn’t meet him she left.

2. Imam ad-Dahabi said regarding these types of deviants who ask help from the pious people, He said regarding a pios woman from Ahlul bayt, Sayyida an-Nafeesa and the shirki aqeeda of people for her grave that:

ولجهلة المصريين فيها اعتقاد يتجاوز الوصف ، ولا يجوز مما فيه من الشرك ، ويسجدون لها ، ويلتمسون منها المغفرة ، وكان ذلك من دسائس دعاة العبيدية .

the ignoramuses amongst the Egyptians hold beliefs in regards to her which are beyond description, impermissible [beliefs] which include polytheism (Shirk).

They prostrate to her [grave] and seek forgiveness from her, all of that is from the machinations of the ‘Ubaydis (Rafidis) [Seyar Ailam Nubala 10/106]

3. Ibn Kathir said about the shrine of Husain RadhiAllahanho which is grave as per Rafidhis:

في ربيع الأول منها، احترق مشهد الحسين بن علي بكربلاء وأروقته، وكان سبب ذلك أن القومة أشعلوا شمعتين كبيرتين فمالتا في الليل على التازير، ونفذت النار منه إلى غيره حتى كان ما كان.

In Rabi ul awwal of this year Mashhad and porch of al Hussain bin Ali in Karbala burnt…

al Bidaya wal Nihaya the year 407 h

4. The grave of Hussain radhiAllahanho was not known in second and third century.

Ahmad bin Saeed Jamal said

سألت أبا نعيم عن زيارة قبر الحسين فكأنه أنكر أن يعلم أين قبره؟

I asked Abu Nuyeem (d 219 h) about visiting al Husayn’s grave so he rejected that he don’t know where is his grave.

Tareekh Baghdad 1/154 with an authentic chain (Credits: Abu Rajab Hanbali)

Note: Hussain bin Ali radhiAllahanho is leaders of youngsters of Jannah, he was a sahabi and also ahlul bayt having lots of virtues and was martyred by cunning and zalimoon.

D) Meaning of- If I am someone’s Mawla then Ali is his Mawla too.

The hadith “If I am someone’s mawla then ‘Ali is his mawla too” Ibn Maajah, 121, Authenticated by Shaykh al Albani, Shaykh Zubair Ali Zai and others.

I heard someone saying, Ali is our helper (maula) as Allah is our helper (maula.) And mentioned the hadith:

“For whomever I am his Mawla then ‘Ali is his Mawla.”

If mawla in the above hadith means helper as Allah is our helper then, at the time of Uhud where Ali and Prophet peace be upon him was present. And when Abu Sufyan said:

“We have (the idol) Al-`Uzza, whereas you have no `Uzza!” The Prophet (peace be upon him) said (to his companions), “Reply to him.”… “Say:

اللَّهُ مَوْلاَنَا وَلاَ مَوْلَى لَكُمْ

Allah is our Helper and you have no helper.” [Sahih al-Bukhari 4043, 4044]

The Prophet (peace be upon him) did not say I am the helper (Mawla) and Ali is our helper (Mawla), rather He said “Allah is our Helper”

So, whats the meaning of Mawla in the first hadith?

a) Prophet peace be upon him also said to Zaid bin haritha

‏ أَنْتَ أَخُونَا وَمَوْلاَنَا ‏‏

“You are our brother and our Mawla.” [Sahih al-Bukhari 2699]

b) Ibn al Araabi the Imam of al Nahw wal Lughah wal Adab wal Insab Muhammad bin Ziaad Ibn al Araabi Abu Abdullah al-Haashmi (150 h to 231 h) said:

المولى المالك وهو الله والمولى ابن العم والمولى المعتق والمولى المعتق والمولى الجار والمولى الشريك والمولى الحليف والمولى المحب والمولى اللوي والمولى الولي ومنه قول النبي (صلى الله عليه وسلم) من كنت مولاه فعلي مولاه معناه من تولاني فليتول عليا قال ثعلب وليس هو كما تقول الرافضة إن عليا مولى الخلق ومالكهم وكفرت الرافضة في هذا لأنه يفسد من باب المعقول لأنا رأيناه يشتري ويبيع فإاذ كانت الأشياء ملكه فمن من يشتري ويبيع ولكنه من باب المحبة والطاعة ويدل على أن المولى والولي المحب

Mawla is al-Maalik who is Allah, Cousin, The one who frees the slave, The one who is freed, Business partner, The contractor, The Lover, The Influential, A Friend. All these are meaning of Mawla. Prophet peace be upon him said: “If I am someone’s mawla then ‘Ali is his mawla too”, Meaning whoever loves me than he must Love Ali. Tha`alab said: The saying of Rawafidh is not correct that Ali is mawla of creation meaning Maalik.. They have done kufr in this matter. This saying is even against aqal because we know Ali did buying and selling. When he is the Maalik of the things then what is the point of buying and selling? this is in the chapter of Love and obedience, In this hadith the meaning of Mawla is Love and friend [Tareekh Ibn Asaakir 42/238 the chain is hasan as mentioned in Majalla as-Sunnah no. 37 page 29]

c) Mulla Ali al Qari the Matureedi Hanafi Imam mentioned:

لا يستقيم أن تحمل الولاية على الإمامة التي هي التصرف في أمور المؤمنين ، لأن المتصرف المستقل في حياته هو هو – صلى الله عليه وسلم – لا غير فيجب أن يحمل على المحبة وولاء الإسلام ونحوهما .

it is incorrect to interpret the mawla as referring to the imam who conducts the affairs of the believers, because the only person who was in charge of the Muslims’ affairs during the lifetime of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was the Prophet himself and no one else, so the word mawla must be interpreted as referring to love, the bonds of Islam and so on.[Mirqaat al Mafateeh no. 6091]

d) Allama at-Teebi said

لا يستقيم أن تحمل الولاية على الإمامة التي هي التصرف في أمور المؤمنين ، لأن المتصرف المستقل في حياته هو هو – صلى الله عليه وسلم – لا غير فيجب أن يحمل على المحبة وولاء الإسلام ونحوهما .

it is incorrect to interpret the mawla as referring to the imam who conducts the affairs of the believers, because the only person who was in charge of the Muslims’ affairs during the lifetime of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was the Prophet himself and no one else, so the word mawla must be interpreted as referring to love, the bonds of Islam and so on [Tuhfat al-Ahwadhi Sharh al-Tirmidhi, no 3713]

e) Shaykh Zubair Ali Zai

He used to say “Mawla Ali” in many of his talks and his meaning of saying mawla is same as mentioned above.

In short, The meaning deduced by some rafidhis from this hadeeth is self made meaning which is against the meaning mentioned by Scholars of Ahlus sunnah.

E) Ali and Muawiyah may Allah be pleased with them united against those who make the graves high.

1. Muawiyah radhiAllahanho.

Abu Mijlaz said that Muawiyah ra said:

إن تسوية القبور من السنة وقد رفعت اليهود والنصارى فلا تشبهوا بهم

Indeed it is sunnah to level the graves, Jews and Christians made them high. Don’t follow them.

[Musannaf Ibn Abi Shayba 3/342, Tabarani in al Kabeer 19/325]

Abu Mijalz himself said:

( 5 ) حدثنا وكيع عن عمران بن حدير عن أبي مجلز قال تسوية القبور من السنة .

( 6 ) حدثنا ابن علية عن عمران بن حدير عن أبي مجلز مثله

Leveling the grave is from sunnah [Musannaf Ibn Abi Shayba Kitab al Janaiz 3/342]۔”

2. Ali radhiAllahanho

a) Abu’l-Hayyaj al-Asadi told that ‘Ali (b. Abu Talib) said to him: Should I not send you on the same mission as Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) sent me? Do not leave an image without obliterating it, or a high grave without levelling It. This hadith has been reported by Habib with the same chain of transmitters and he said: (Do not leave) a picture without obliterating it.

[Sahih Muslim Book 4, Number 2115]

Note: This order was regarding Mushrikeen as well as Muslims because:

Another hadith clearly states when the idols were demolished and the graves were levelled Prophet peace be upon him said:

من عاد لصنعة شيء من هذا فقد كفر بما أنزل على محمد

“Whoever return for even one of these things, he has done kufr with what was revealed to Muhammad peace be upon him.”

[Musnad Ahmad no: 657, Musnad Tiyalisi 96, Mundari said the chain is Jayyad At Targheeb vol 4 page 45]

F) One of the Last words of Hussain radhiAllahanho as per Shia books were full of tawheed.

«صبراً على قضائك يا ربّ ، لا إله سواك يا غياث المستغيثين [١] ، مالي ربّ سواك ولا معبود غيرك ، صبراً على حكمك ، يا غياث مَن لا غياث له يا دائماً لا نفاد له ، يا محيي الموتى ، يا قائماً على كلّ نفس بما كسبت ، احكم بيني وبينهم وأنت خير الحاكمين» [٢].

(I accept) Patience upon your decree, O Rabb. There is no deity except You, O Helper (Giyath) of the seekers of help. I have no Rabb besides You, nor there is any other Lord except You. (I accept) Patience upon Your judgment, O Helper of those who have no helper, O Everlasting with no end, O Reviver of the dead, O Upholder of every soul according to what it has earned. Judge between me and them, and You are the best of judges.”

Taken from

مقتل الحسين عليه السلام المؤلف : المقرّم، السيد عبد الرزاق الجزء : 1 صفحة : 283

First part is also mentioned by sunni scholar Abdul Mannan Rasikh in Shan e Hassan o Hussain no. 72

Truely Hussain radhiAllahanho is the leader of the people of jannah.

G) Dua full of Tawheed, The Prophet peace be upon him taught his beloved daughter Fatima radhiAllahanha.

يا حَـيُّ يا قَيّـومُ بِـرَحْمَـتِكِ أَسْتَـغـيث ،

و أَصْلِـحْ لي شَـأْنـي كُلَّـه ،

وَلا تَكِلـني إِلى نَفْـسي طَـرْفَةَ عَـين ابدا

O Ever-Living One, O Eternal One, by Your mercy I call on You to set right all my affairs.

Do not place me in charge of my soul even for the blinking of an eye.

“Ibn As-Sunni reported it in ‘Amal Al-Yawm Wa Al-Laylah’ no. 46, and Al-Bayhaqi reported it in ‘Al-Asma’ no. 112, Al-Hakim 1/545, see Albani, Sahihut-Targhib wat-Tarhib, 1/273 and al Saheeha no. 227

H) Conclusion.

Loving ahlul bayt is part of our Eeman and we have the exact same aqeeda which Ali radhiAllahanho and his sons, Husnayn Kareemayn radhiAllahanhum had. They are leaders of Jannah and we follow them without any exaggeration.
