Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
All your efforts to try and spread this wrong and malicious messages wont bear fruit. In all centuries gone by there have been a continuous legitimate line of Imams and their Dai's and many enemies, Kafireens have tried to destroy and remove and annihilate the rightfulness lineage starting from Ali (RA)who was the real and rightful caliph and Vasi of Nabi Mohammad (SAW) and kafireens like Yazid and Muawiya not to forget the three caliphs who all plotted to destroy but now all burn in hell. I curse them all and you who write such emails and try to poison the minds of others. Your rightful place is in hell and I promise you will surely get it in time to come.
MAY YOUR EVIL AND SATANIC INTENTIONS ARE NEVER REALISED AND TRUTH PREVAIL.
MAY YOU DIE A PAINFUL DEATH
YOU ARE A KAFIR AND A NON BELIEVER OF ALLAH

Curses from Shia brother
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
My dear and beloved brother in Islam, it is only natural that when the Truth of the Quran is presented to the one who sincerely believes in a particular set of beliefs one is born and brought up in to challenge it vehemently. Because the presented Truth from the Quran is so overpowering and irrefutable, it is indeed only natural that the person in the defence of the deen of his forefathers will revile, rebuke, abuse and even curse the people who present him the Truth of the Quran; for his knowledge base is founded upon what he has seen in his household, told by his ‘priests’, and followed by his forefathers, etc. and not from the Source of True Knowledge, The Glorious Quran. Thus brother, your reaction to the Truth of the Quran is only natural and a sign of your sincere belief in the deen of your forefathers that you grew up believing it to be the truth.
But Allah Subhanah is witness that umpteen times in the annuls of history, it has often happened that when such sincere people who once believed fervidly in the deen of their forefathers, strive to seek and understand the Truth from the Knowledge of the Quran and Sunnah, they become some of the best soldiers in the Cause of Allah Subhanah.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 4.572 Narrated by Abu Huraira
The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: ‘Those who were the best in the pre-lslamic period of ignorance will be the best in Islam, provided they comprehend the religious knowledge."
My dear and beloved brother, Allah is my witness, there was a time when I too fervently believed in the falsehood propagated by the supposed ‘holy men’ and followed by my forefathers for generations (and I sincerely seek Allah’s repentance for my ignorance), reviled and rebuked and abused and cursed the brothers who tried to present the Truth of the Quran to me! I was so sincere in my belief in the falsehood I was born and brought up in that I was not even ready to allow the brothers to speak to me about the Quran; for I was always told that our self-invented ‘holy men’ were the only people authorized by Allah to understand and explain the Quran! I was always told by my elders that if I ever tried to get close to the guidance of the Quran from others, I would be misguided! I, like my elders and forefathers, religiously obeyed, followed, and submitted to every word and deed of the ‘holy priest’ and his ‘royal’ family! I, like everyone else I grew up with, unconditionally submitted to the whims and fancies of these ‘holy men’ without question, regardless of the repression and oppression the subjugation to man brings to man! I was always told and I sincerely believed they were ‘men of God’ and could do no wrong; and it was our duty unto Allah to follow and obey and submit to them unconditionally!
These supposed ‘men of God’ demanded awe and respect, and
we fulfilled their demands; they demanded money, and we paid them to their
hearts desire; they demanded that we bow down to them and we did; they demanded
that we prostrate ourselves to them and we did; they demanded we commit shirk,
(may Allah forgive me my deeds done in my days of ignorance) and we did!!! Time and time again, these self-invented
‘holy men’ promised us
All Praise is due to Allah Subhanah who had Mercy on me and sent some amongst His true believers to present the Truth of the Quran to me. Your reaction to our presentation of Truth is merciful compared to the welcome I gave these well-wishing brothers who came to me with the Quran! All Praise is due to Allah Subhanah Alone Who guided these brothers and bestowed them with patience and wisdom to confront and mitigate my hatred and abuse towards them and anyone else who dared to challenge the falsehood I was born and brought up in!
It took these brothers at least 18 long months of patience to my absolutely ignorant and vile attitude to convince me to open the Quran and read it with understanding, even only once; and the only reason I read the Quran with understanding was to prove them false once and for all from the very Quran they were inviting me to read and understand; for I absolutely and sincerely believed that the ‘holy men’ followed by my forefathers for generations were guiding us aright from the Holy Quran!
The Quran being the Message of our Lord and Creator guides towards nothing but the Truth; and what remains after the Truth can only be falsehood! All Praise is to Allah Subhanah who had mercy upon me, and guided me to understand His Divine Message of Guidance; without which, Allah is my witness, I would have been completely and utterly ruined!
The brothers who presented the Truth of the Quran to me never ever asked for a penny or any material reward for themselves whatsoever; and when they saw that I had accepted the Truth, they went about their work in the Cause of Allah searching for one more misguided soul they could invite to the Truth of the Glorious Quran! Wherever they are, may Allah bless them and have mercy upon them and reward them with the highest grades in His Realms of Paradise in the Hereafter.
My dear and beloved brother, Allah is our witness, we wish nothing but the best for you in this world and especially in the Hereafter. If what we have said from the Quran and Sunnah has hurt you in any way, we sincerely seek your forgiveness and the forgiveness of Allah Subhanah; for that was never our intention. Our one and only intention was to present the Truth of the Quran to you: to accept or reject the guidance of the Quran is a decision every person has to make for himself, and it is this very decision that will determine the success or failure of each individual in the Supreme and Just Court of the Majestic Lord on the Day of Resurrection.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 18 Surah Kahf verse 29: Proclaim, “This (Quran) is the Truth from your Lord: now whosoever wills may accept it, and whosoever wills may reject it.” (As for those who reject it) We have prepared for such workers of iniquity a fire whose flames have encircled them. There, if they ask for water , they will be given a drink like the dregs of oil, which will burn their mouths! What an evil drink, and what an evil abode!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 18 Surah
Kahf verses 103-106: Tell them (O Mohamed), “Should We tell you who are the
most unsuccessful people and miserable failures in regard to their deeds? They
are those, all whose edeavours in the
worldly life, had gone astray from the
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), he can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), he can be assured of being led astray.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
