Have you ever wondered about the mystery of the sanctity of the Shiites of the grandson of the Prophet “Imam Al-Hussein bin Ali”, and at the same time ignoring his brother Imam «Al-Hassan». This fact comes even though both of the two Imams are descendants of the Prophet peace be upon him and they are the sons of Fatima Al-Zahra and Ali bin Abi Talib? If the question has worried you one day, or even you have not thought about it, it is time now to know the secret of this sanctification, through which the Shiite elders control the simple Muslims, exploiting their love for the members of «the holy house of the prophet»!
The answer to the previous question, or the secret mystery, is clarified to us by the researcher and Islamic thinker Ali Muhammad al-Shurafa al-Hammadi, in his interesting book «Muslims .. Between Religious Speech and the Divine Speech», issued by «Al-Nokhba House for Printing, Publishing and Distribution». The secret is the relationship between Al-Hussein ibn Ali and the king of Persia. This information may shock you when you hear it for the first time. On the other hand, this piece of information may reveal to your eyes a new world of the conspiracy that has plagued Islam over the past centuries. This conspiracy has reached the extent of conflict between Muslims and the shed of each other’s’ blood. Moreover, this conspiracy has led to the Muslim division into hundreds of groups and sects.
Before the Islamic thinker Ali Muhammad Al-Shurafaa, reveals the mystery and the relation between Imam Al-Hussein and the King of Persia and the ancient and modern Shia scholars, the writer explains to us in his book «Muslims .. between religious speech and divine speech», how the plot began and why the Persian scholars resorted to this plot 14 centuries ago. The author tells us: «The tales published by the Persians on behalf of some of the companions aimed to create a state of division between the Muslim Arabs to cause conflict and quarrel among them. This was to revenge the Muslim Arabs in retaliation for committing the crime of overthrowing the Persian Empire. Thus, this led to the emergence of a state of ratification, belief and conviction in those tales».
With the multiplicity of sources and purposes of tales, sects have emerged. Each sect has adopted its own reference and narratives based on it in explaining its religious orientations and adopting it as a basis for its religious discourse. Each sect has its own religious discourse.
Through the spread of many references and the spread of the Takfiri thought (accusing other Muslims of abandoning Islam and working against its real ideas and teachings), each sect considered the others as disbelievers. Moreover, each sect believes that fighting the other sects is a Jihad for the sake of Allah, each of them fighting his own Muslim brother, and each of them believes that he is struggling for the sake of Allah. Two Muslims kill each other, they fall while each one of them shouting “Allah Akbar.”
In addition, in order to strengthen their religious speech on which the Shiite sect originated, the Persian scholars relied on two bases to export their poisoned speech and to create a religion parallel to the religion of Islam. They relied on the following:
First: the kinship of Al-Hussein bin Ali bin Abi Talib, to the Messenger of Allah – peace be upon him – the grandson of the prophet by Fatima, the daughter of Muhammad peace be upon him. This kinship of the Prophet supports the Persian religious speech to grant sanctity and high status to that kinship. Moreover, Al-Hussein and his family were killed and their blood was shed in the battle of Karbala with the army of Yazid bin Mu’awiya, the ruler of Sham. The Persian scholars created a situation of injustice and considered it as a struggle between truth and falsehood and an address for redemption of religious principles and values to inspire the Shiites and to recruit new members to the Shiite sect.
There was a marital relationship between Al-Hussein and the daughter of the Persian king (Shah Zanan), who gave birth to Imam Ali Zine al-Abidin. Imam Ali Zine al-Abidin is considered the first of a series of twelve imams. This is the foundation of the Shiite sect. we should remember that the grandfather of Imam Ali Zine al-Abidin is the Persian king (Yazdgerd).
So the Persians ruled out Imam Al-Hassan – the brother of Al-Hussein – because the founding rule of Imam Al-Hussein is the marital relationship and the Persian affiliation of his wife. The Persian scholars put the tragedy in the service of their religious speech and made Imam Al-Hussein the center of the Shiite speech and exaggerated in the sanctification to the degree of considering him as God. They claim that the sins of the member of the Shiite sect will be forgiven and he will be placed in paradise if he visited the shrine of Al-Hussein.
The illiterates and the ignorant people received this invitation, and it became their only refuge in their life and in the Hereafter. Through these claims, the Shiite scholars were able to use these myths and exaggerations to attract people when they facilitated the rituals of worship and the obligation to apply them in worship and in behavior. It is only through the visit of the shrine of Al-Hussein a Shiite will be forgiven and he will receive the credit of one pilgrimage and a thousand Umrah.
Second: The second factor is Ali Zine al-Abidine ibn al-Hussein, grandson of the king of Persia. Al-Hussein married the daughter of the king of Persia, who was one of the captured women that the Muslim had after the break of the Persian army. The wife’s name is «Shah Zanan bint Yazdgerd” king of Persia». This kinship of the Persian king has contributed to the sympathy of the Persian scholars with the sanctification of Al-Hussein. Thus, a religious speech was adopted unlike the message of Islam, which came to Muhammad – peace be upon him. The message of Islam was carried by Prophet Mohammed in the holy Qur’an. They adopted the new speech to make a deep rift in the message of Islam, so as to create the suitable ground for a permanent conflict between the Sunnis and the Shiites. Both sects turned away from the holy Qur’an that calls for unity and agreement based on the words of Allah. This situation of fighting and sedition is fed by the enemies of Islam so these enemies can exploit the Muslim preoccupation to invade the Muslim homeland and to rob Muslim wealth and to disrupt Muslims from the march of progress and development of what is good for the Islamic peoples.
