Clear Proof showing Falseness of Shi’ism

There are so many points that can be cited to show the falseness of Shi’ism and that it was a deviation from real Islam that occured after the death of the Prophet (pbuh).

However, there is one point that stands out, a sincere Shiah follower will be able to see the deviation and the false basis of this sect. And that point is that the central belief in Shi’ism, namely, that there are twelve infallible Imams who alone have the right to rule the Muslims. Thus the first three Khalifs of Islam (Abu Bakr r.a., Umar r.a. and Uthman r.a.) were all (Maadhallah) apostates who by ruling without right, that is they usurped the right of the first of the twelve Imams, namely Ali r.a., they left the fold of Islam. As wild and contrary to the historical facts as this belief of is, it is very sad that they actually believe it.

They also belief after Ali r.a. only his off-spring could be Imams and there would be eleven more after the last one, the World would end. These Imams include Imams Hasan r.a. Hussain r.a., Imams Jafar Sadiq, Imam Baqir etc, whom even we Sunnis believe were pious and great men. However, we also believe that they themselves never held the belief the Shiahs hold about them and many lies have been falsely ascribed to these great men.

In any case, as great as the belief of the twelve Imams is for the Shiah and as pivotal as it is in their theology, it cannot be supported by a single verse of the Holy Qur’an. No where in the Holy Qur’an does it mention that Muslims must believe in twelve Imams or that they even exist. Any sincere Shiah follower, who truly fears Allah taala, will admit that this discrepency is so huge, the only explanation for it is to say that people of devious intentions, concocted this belief much later.

How can someone accept that Shi’ism is on the truth when one of its most central beliefs does not even exist in the Holy Qur’an?
If it does then prove it by quoting a single verse?

A true believer, loves the Holy Qur’an and knows the rank of this book and that it is divine and free from any defects or doubt, as Allah taala says Himself in the beginning verses of Sura Al-Baqara: “This is the Book in which there is no doubt…,”

    Indeed,shi’ism is itself false. But I want to ask for a the truth of Mu’awiyya r.a has invented his own sunnah of abusing Aliy r.a. Is this true? though i very much doubt it. And from whom this theory arose?

      As-salaamu ‘alaykum

      It is not true.

      The allegation against Ameer Muawiya radhiallahu ‘anhu has traditionally been spread by Shias but in the modern era it has become further popularised due to the mistakes of Maulana Maududi. However the senior scholars of his time came out and refuted Maududi on this and other similar issues. Below is a link to a translation of an article by Mufti Taqi Uthmani that details the origins of this allegation. http://www.sunniforum.com/forum/showthread.php?10746-Reply-to-an-Allegation-on-Muawiyyah-need-proofreading

    Asalaamu Alaykum brother may Allah guide all muslims to the truth.

    1) The Prophet (s) states in a muttawatir sunni hadeeth: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hadith_of_the_Twelve_Successors

    Who are your 12 successors ?

    2) Who is the Imam of your time ? Please refer to muttawatir ahadeeth: ‘He who dies without recognizing the Imam of his time dies the death of (ignorance) Jahiliyah’

    3) Go and read the hadith of ghadir khumm and read the context around it. And tell me why the Prophet (s) would raise Ali ibn abi Talibs hand to state whoever is my friend is his friend infront of thousands of muslims, (the common views held by the sunnis).

    4) Read into the event of Mubahila please.

    5) How is Abubakrs reign as caliph legitmate ? Proof from the Quran please.

    6) Read into the battle of Jamal (camel) , Siffeen and Nahrawan. Which party was on the right path ?

    7) If you have time read the book; Succession to the Prophet (s) by Proffessor Wilfred Madelung.

    Wa alaykum asalaam wr wb
