Chapter One: Introduction


The Shi’a of Maula ‘Ali (as) are a people whose legacy of truth is so sharp and hard hitting that many of our opposing ‘ulama choose to steer clear from engaging in any type of lively discussions with us. Their fear is so strong that these self declared advocates of the first three khalifas do not have the courage to debate with us on issues of belief. Alhamdulillah in the Indian Subcontinent when the handful of brave defenders have sought to engage in debates with us on the topic of the first three khalifas, these Nwasib flee with their tails in between their legs, with no means of escape. Too stubborn to acknowledge defeat, these followers of Mu’awiyah have gone back to the drawing table and devised a brand new approach altogether, where they attack the Shi’as on issues of fiqh.

Despite the fact that the four Sunni madhabs are bitterly divided amongst themselves on issues of fiqh to the point that they cannot even agree on how Rasulullah (s) offered salat, these noble warriors have not been undeterred, and have chosen to ignore their own differences and set sights on the Shi’a. Mut’ah is an issue linked to fiqh, a topic which like many has created many differences amongst the ‘ulama. The only reason that these Nawasib [enemies of the Ahl al-Bayt (as)] have chosen to clog their Web Sites and books with articles and books is to keep the Shi’a ‘ulama busy, so that they are provided with fewer opportunities to highlight the transgressions of their khalifas. Many followers of Mu’awiyah have dedicated hours of their free time on this topic, and we pray that this book shall answer all the propaganda and lies that are perpetuated against us. Those great works that we have singled out for special attention are as follows:

Here are all the above articles backed-up to download in ZIP format 

These great writers told numerous lies and sought to throw as much filth as they could get in their hands, and abandoned all principles of honesty and intellectual rigour whilst seeking to achieve their objective. We felt that it was essential that we answered these ‘defenders of decency’ back, in the manner that they deserve. We have raised our pens and now ask for justice before our readers, by citing evidences from the Qur’an, hadith, testimonies of the Sahaba and the Salaf ‘ulama to support our arguments.

May Allah (swt) accept our intention, and bless Prophet Muhammad and his purified family.
