Similarities between the Shi’ah and the Barelwis – Syrian scholar Sa’id Hawwa


Part 2:

Sa’id Hawwa, the famous Syrian Ash’a’ri scholar wrote a book called  Khumayniyyah about Khomeini where he accused him of kufr. One of the reasons he gives for the deviancy of Shi’ah is the fact that they exaggerate the status of their 12 imams too much. He writes that the Shi’ah give the authority to tahlil and tahrim to thier imams. His exact words are:

وأن لهم حرية الاختيار في التحليل والتحريم ، فقد جاء في أصول ” الكافي ” لإمامهم الكليني القول بأن الله خلق جميع الأشياء فاشهدهم خلقها وأجرى طاعتهم عليها وفوض أمورها إليهم ، فهم يحلون ما يشاؤون ويحرمون ما يشاؤون

Barelwis are also of the belief that our Holy Messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace) has the authority to make things halal and haram.

  1. Simply Sunni says:

    Barelvis believe it based on the evidence of ahadees. IF ahadees are a form of wahi (ghairmatloo) then Barelvi belief is right. Are there not exceptions like allowing some sahabas (ra) to wear gold, silk etc.?

    Shias believe their Imams to be masoom and Nabi (saws) was definitely masoom. If there are incidents which support Barelvi belief where things were permitted as exceptions then Deobandis should come forward with some Quranic evidence refuting it and proving it to be a mistake of the Prophet (saws) – Nauzubillah. Then what willhappen to doctrine of infallibility?
