THE ORIGIN OF THE NAME RAFIDAH (shias) AND THEIR CRITICISM FROM SALAAF THE ORIGIN OF THE TITLE

GIVEN TO MODERN DAY SHIA'AS I.e "RAFIDAH OR RAWAFIDH " The word Raafidah means rejecter, the Rawaafidh (all modern day shia'as and majority of the ancestral shias) have obtained their name by their rejection of Zayd ibn Alee ibn al-Hussayn ibn Alee ibn Abee Taalib, the great grandson of Alee. Imaam adh-Dhahabee said in his Siyaar Alaam an-Nubalaa (5/390): Eesaa bin Yoonus said: The Raafidah came to Zayd and said to him, Free yourself from Abee Bakr and Umar so that we can aid you.He replied, Rather I will give allegiance to them (i.e. Aboo Bakr and Umar). They said, Then we reject you. So then it was said to them, arRaafidah (the rejecters). Shaykh al-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah mentioned in his Majmoo al-Fataawa (4/435): . : : : It was said to Imaam Ahmad: Who is the Raafidhee? He said: Those who insult Abaa Bakr and Umar.And by this they were named the Raafidah, for they rejected Zayd bin Alee when he gave allegiance to the two Khaleefahs Abaa Bakr and Umar, (so they rejected him) because of their hatred for them. And the one who hates them (i.e. Aboo Bakr and Umar) is a Raafidhee. And they were named as the Raafidhah because of their rejection of Abaa Bakr and Umar. He then said: And the foundation of rejection is from the hypocrites and the heretics, for they followed the innovation of the heretic Ibn Saba. He also said in volume 28 on page 483: And the people of knowledge have mentioned that the beginning of the Rafdh (rejection) is from the Heretic (Zindeeq) Abdullaah bin Saba; for he manifested Islaam and while he hid his Judaism and he sought to cause corruption in Islaam just like Paul the Christian, who was a Jew who caused corruption in the religion of the Christians. So the foundation of the Raafidhee belief is found in this man, Abdullaah bin Saba Note: this Man 'Abdullah ibn Saba is the founding father of Shi'ism, i.e the man who originated the fitnah and fasaad during the time of Uthman (r.a). He was originally a Jew disguised as a Muslim i.e pretending to be a Muslim, but he wanted to avenge himself and his family and etc by breaking the Ummah from within. There are tons of literature work on him, which will be converted here

to docs soon if time permits bi-idhnillah Ibn Hajar al-Asqalaanee said in his Leesaanul Meezaan: Abdullaah bin Saba from the extremists of the heretics, deviated and deviates others. Ibn Abil Izz al-Hanafee mentioned in his Sharh Aqeedatut Tahaawiyyah on page 490: . The foundations of Rafdh (rejection) came to begin from a heretic and hypocrite who intended to bring falsehood into the religion of Islaam and to bring insult to the Messenger ( ) as the scholars have mentioned. For indeed, Abdullaah bin Saba when he manifested Islaam, he sought to cause corruption in the religion of Islaam by plotting and vileness just as what Paul did with the Christian religion. First he manifested piety and then manifested enjoining the good and forbidding the evil, until he was involved in the Fitnah of Uthmaan and his killing. Then when he entered Koofah he manifested extremism for Alee and supporting him to gain from it necessities and this was made clear to Alee so he sought his killing and fought him to Qarqees and the narrations of that are known in History. Thus from this man (Abdullaah bin Saba) whom Ahlus Sunnah has criticized; stemmed this group known as the Rawaafidh Sheeah. Ibn Hajar al-Haythamee mentioned in his Majma az-Zawaaid (10/22) the narration of Ibn Abbaas which was reported by at-Tabaraanee with a Hasan chain of narration (according to him) that the Messenger of Allaah ( ) said: : - - - - : " " . . O Alee, there will be in my Ummah a group of people who will go beyond bounds in love of my family, they will have an insulting name, they will be known as the Raafidah. Fight them, for they are polytheists. [ Shaikh Albani has discussed this hadeeth and its likes in detail quoting all the references for this narration and has declared (quoting the jumhoor as well that) all routes are weak in Silsilah ad-Da'eefa (13/568-572) Under hadeeth 6267] Also the Shaikhs of Islamweb replied : . Source: http://fatwa.islamweb.net/fatwa/index.php?page=showfatwa&Option=FatwaId&Id=76321 Ibn Hajar al-Haythamee also metioned in his Majma az-Zawaaid (2/10) with a good

chain of narration that Aasim bin Bahdalah said: : : I said to al-Hasan bin Alee: The Sheeah claim that Alee will return. He said: Those liars have lied. For if we had known that, his women would not hav e married and we would not have divided his inheritance. : : ) !! ( : : Ibn Battah reported in his al-Ibaanah al Kubraa, in the chapter: Mentioning the sections of the Nations in their religion and upon how many sects will the Ummah split into, from the Hadeeth of Abee Alee bin Ismaaeel bin al-Abbaas al-Warraaq who said: al-Hassan bin Muhammad bin asSabaah az-Zafaraanee narrated to me that Shabbaabah said, that Sawaadah bin Salamah said that Abdullaah bin Qays ) )said: A group of Christians came to Alee ( ) and at the head of them was a major scholar of the Jews. So the leader said: You debate about how many groups the Jews split into? He said: Into seventy one sects. And Alee ( ) said: And this Ummah will split into similar to that, and the most deviated and evil sect of them: the ones who call to us (Ahlul Bayt), and a sign of them is that they insult Aboo Bakr and Umar : And as for Aboo Alee bin al-Abbaas al-Warraaq, then ad-Daaruqutnee reported from him and considered him reliable. And adh-Dhahabee said about him: ((The Scholars of hadeeth, the Imaam, the Proof)) and Yoosuf bin Amr al-Qawwaas mentioned him from the reliable scholars. Look to Taareekh Baghdaad (6/300) of al-Khateeb al Baghdaadee and al-Muntadhim (6/278) of Ibnul Jawzee and Siyaar Alaam an-Nubalaa (15/74) of Adh-Dhahabee. And al-Hassan bin Muhammad bin asSabaah az-Zafaraanee is Reliable. See Tahdheeb at-Tahdheeb (2/318) and at-Taqreeb (1/170) of Ibn Hajar al Asqalaanee. ) ( : And Abul Qaasim al-Baghawee reported from Alee ( ) that he said: A group will arise in the last times, they will have a nickname (an insulting name), they will be known as the Raafidhah (rejecters) and they will be known by it. They will say that they are our sheeah (our group) but they are not from our group. And the signs of that is that they will insult Abaa Bakr and Umar, where ever you find them, then kill them for they are mushrikoon (polytheists). [Da'eef] PROOFS FROM AHLE BAYT THAT THEY HATED THEIR SO-CALLED SHIA'AS

Note: These are from shia'a sources and like their religion we don't believe in their reports for we have our (Sunni) sources well preserved unlike them and even though sometimes parts of these narrations match with our narrations, we (the sunnis) have a different context and understanding than these rawafidh. The below is only to counter the so called shia's (more appropriately known as rafidah) from their own books. Imam Jafar as-Sadiq ( )said the following about the so-called Shia: No one bears greater hatred towards us [the Ahlel Bayt] than those who claim to love us. [Abdullh al-Mmaqn, Miqbs al-Hidyah vol. 2 p. 414 (Muassasat l al-Bayt li-Ihy at-Turth, Beirut 1991) quoting from Rijl al-Kashsh.] During the fight against the people of Syria [Muawiyyah], Ali said to his Shia: Woe to you. I am tired of rebuking you. Do you accept this worldly life in place of the next life? Or disgrace in place of dignity? When I invite you to fight your enemy your eyes revolve as though you are in the clutches of death, and in the senselessness of last moments. My pleadings are not understood by you and you remain stunned. It is as though your hearts are affected with madness so that you do not understand. You have lost my confidence for good. Neither are you a support for me to lean upon, nor a means to honour and victory. Your example is that of the camels whose protector has disappeared, so that if they are collected from one side they disperse away from the other side. [source: Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 34, http://www.al-islam.org/nahjul/34.htm] In the same sermon, Ali ( )also condemns the Shia for being trouble-makers and fitnahmongerers, saying: By Allah, how bad are you for igniting flames of war. Hasan did not trust these Shia either as they were very disloyal. In his book al-Ihtijj, the prominent Shia author Abu Mansur at-Tabarsi has preserved the following remark of Hasan: By Allah, I think Muawiyyah would be better for me than these people who claim that they are my Shia (supporters). [Ab Mansr at-Tabars, al-Ihtijj vol. 2 p. 290-291 , Muassasat al-Alam, Beirut 1989] Distrusting his Shia, Hasan ( )made peace with Muawiyyah ( )and gave him the )is preserved in the most Caliphate. His Shia protested at this, and Hasans reply ( important of the Shia books of Hadith, Al-Kafi: By Allah, I handed over power to him for no reason other than the fact that I could not find any supporters. Had I found supporters I would have fought him day and night until Allah decides between us. But I know the people of Kufa (i.e a city in Iraq where the shia'as were dominant). I have experience of them. The bad ones of them are no good to me. They have no loyalty, nor any integrity in word or deed. They are in disagreement. They claim that their hearts are with us, but their swords are drawn against us. [Al-Kafi, vol. 8, p.288] Hussains cousin Muslim Ibn Aqil ( )was sold out to Yezids men by the Shia. Muslim Ibn

Aqil ( )sent a message to Hussain ( )warning him about the Shia of Kufa: Do not be deceived by people of Kufa. They are those same Shia of your father from whom he so dearly wished to part, by death or by being killed. The Kuffans have lied to me and have lied to you, and a liar has no sense. Before being executed, Muslim Ibn Aqil ( )said about the Shia: O Allah, You be the Judge between us and our people. They deceived us and deserted us. Then, Hussain ( )would be betrayed by the Shia of Kufa, who would feed him to Yezids men who slaughtered Hussain ( )at Karbala. Hussain ( )would say before being martyred, Our Shia have deserted us. And the Shia betrayal of the Ahlul Bayt did not stop with Ali, Hasan, and Hussain; indeed, they did not even spare Hussains grandson, Zayd ibn Ali ibn Hussain ( ). The Shia would betray him on the battlefield, defecting against him. Before being martyred, Zayd ( )said: I am afraid they have done unto me as they did to Hussain . Ali ( )condemned the Shia so many times in the Nahjul Balagha, page after page of how much he reviled the people who claimed to be his supporters. Here, Ali ( )says that Allah will destroy the Shia of Kufa if they continue to be decietful, and he asks Allah to change his Shia for other supporters, because he distrusts his Shia who are not really his supporters but rather his enemies: Ali chastises the Shia of Kufa: O Kufa, if this is your condition that whirlwinds [of deciet] continue blowing through you, then Allah may destroy youYour disobedience of your Imam in matters of right and their [the Syrians] obedience to their leader [Muawiyyah] in matters of wrong, their [the Syrians] fulfilment of the trust in favor of their master [Muawiyyah] and your betrayal, their good work in their cities and your mischief. Even if I give you charge of a wooden bowl I fear you would run away with its handle. Ali invokes Allah against his Shia: O my Allah, they are disgusted of me and I am disgusted of them. They are weary of me and I am weary of them. Change them for me with better ones [ Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 25, source: http://www.al-islam.org/nahjul/25.htm] Ali says to his Shia at the Battle of Siffin: Keep quiet, may Allah make you ugly, O you with broken tooth. Certainly, by Allah, when truth became manifest even then your personality was weak and your voice was loose. But when wrong began to shout loudly you again sprouted up like the horns of a kid. [Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 183, source: http://www.al-islam.org/nahjul/183.htm] Ali says to his Shia:

You are a group whose heads are devoid of wit and intelligence. May you have no father! Allahs woe be to you! [Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 36] There are tons and tons of such references wherein the Ahle Bayt has oppenly opposed, denounced and cursed their Shia'as such as : Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 4 , Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 29 , Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 39 , Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 57 , Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 68 , Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 69 , Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 70 , Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 96 , Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 115 , Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 118 , Nahjul Balagha, Sermon 124 , 126, 130, 179, 191 so on and so forth... ALI (R.A) ANGRY AT THE ONE WHO ELEVATES HIM ABOVE ABU BAKR AND UMAR (R.A.A) : . : And Alee bin Abee Taalib clarified that Abdullaah bin as-Sawdaa hated Abaa Bakr and Umar, so he gave importance to his killing. So the people became roused and said to him: Do you kill a man who calls to loving Ahlul Bayt? He said: Do not reside with me in my residence ever Then he ordered with his banishment to Madaain, the capital of Persia. : : And al-Hakm bin Hajal said: I heard Alee saying, Nobody honors me over Aboo Bakr and Umar ( ) except punish him with the punishment of the lashing of a liar. Now this is a "mutawaatir" (too many to deny) narration and alhumdulillah summa alhumdulillah we (sunnis) have tons of such reports , some of which are : , : : Al-Mugheerah from Shabak: It had reached Ali that ibn al-Sawdaa(Ibn Saba) is insulting Abu Bakr and Umar so he called for him asked for a sword to kill himbut he was talked out of it so he said: He will not live with me in the same land then he exiled him to al -Madaen. [Source: al-Lalikaee in Sharh Iitiqad Ahlul-Sunnah #2379] Hafidh ibn Hajr quotes Ali : I will lash anyone who prefers me over Abu Bakr and Omar, the lashing of a slanderer (liar/spreading lies). [Lisan al-Mizan, Vol. III P. 290] Hafidh ibn Katheer in Bidaya wal Nihaya vol 7, chapter wrote:

! : And its proven from him [Ali] in tawatur form, that He said on the pulpit in Kufa: O people! The best one in this Ummah after her Prophet is Abu Bakr , then Omar , and if I wanted to say you the third name, I would do that. - ) 699/80( ) ( : : - : : - . In Tuq Al-Hamamh by Yahya bin Hamzah Al-Zobaydi on the authority of bin Ghaflah Al-Jofi Al-Kufi (80H) who said that he entered upon Ali may Allah be pleased with him and said: I passed by some men. among them was Abdallah Ibn Saba, who were talking negatively about Abu Bakr and Omar saying that you [Ali] hold the same feelings towards them. Ali replied: What does this wretched black man (Ibn Sabas mother was Ethiopian) want from me? He then said: I seek refuge in Allah in holding anything but beautiful respect for them both. Then he sent after Ibn Saba and exiled him to Al-Madain (former capital of the Persian empire) and ascended the pulpit until the people were gathered, he then praised Abu Bakr and Omar, then he said: If it reaches me that anyone prefers me over them then I shall lash them as they do with the slandering liar From Abdullaah bin Salmah who said I heard Ali saying: The best of the people after the Messenger of Allaah is Abu Bakr, and the best of the people after Abu Bakr is Umar . . . . . [Collected by Ibn Majah in his Sunan & authenticated by Albaani no. 86] From Abu Juhayfah who said: I heard Ali saying: Shall I not inform you who is the best of this Ummah after its Prophet, it is Abu Bakr. Then Ali continued: Shall I not inform you who is the best of this Ummah after Abu Bakr it is Umar. [Collected by Ahmad & authenticated by Ahmad Shakir. Imam Dhahabi said in Tareekh al Khulafah p.115: I swear by Allaah the Magnificent, that this is what Ali said and it is Mutawatir from him, because he said this while on the Mimbar in Koofah, may Allaah fight the Rafidaah, how ignorant they are!] From Shaqeeq who said: It was said to Ali -Radi Allaahu anhu: Will you not appoint a leader? He replied: The Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- did not appoint a leader, so how can I appoint one. If Allaah Tabaraka wa Taala wants good for the people then He gathers them as He gathered them after their Prophet upon the best of them. [i.e. Abu Bakr] [Collected by Ibn Abi Aassim in as-Sunnah 1221] CRITICISM OF THE SALAAF AGAINST THE RAWAFIDH

First of All, we have numerous fataawas of scholars both from salaaf and

khalaaf very sternly denouncing those who abuse or harm the sahaabas. you can read all these fataawas of our Imaams along with some other points from Qur'an and ahadeeth enlisting the superiority of Sahaabas here : http://thefinalrevelation.blogspot.in/2012/12/some-virtues-of-sahaabas-companionsof.html ( : ( : And Muhammad bin Saeed al-Asbahaanee said: I heard Shareek (Bin Abdillaah, Qaadhee of Koofaa) saying: Take knowledge from whoever you meet except the Raafidhah, for they fabricate hadeeth and take it as religion. : And Aboo Zurah ar-Raazee said: If you find a man insulting any one of the Companions of the Messenger of Allaah ) ) then know that he is a Heretic (Zindeeq). Allaah says in Surah Fath: Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are severe against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and falling down prostrate (in prayer), seeking Bounty from Allah and (His) Good Pleasure. The mark of them (i.e. of their Faith) is on their faces (foreheads) from the traces of (their) prostration (during prayers). This is their description in the Taurat (Torah). But their description in the Injeel (Gospel) is like a (sown) seed which sends forth its shoot, then makes it strong, it then becomes thick, and it stands straight on its stem, delighting the sowers that He may enrage the disbelievers with them. Allah has promised those among them who believe (i.e. all those who follow Islamic Monotheism, the religion of Prophet Muhammad till the Day of Resurrection) and do righteous good deeds, forgiveness and a mighty reward (i.e. Paradise). [Al-Fath: 29] Ibn Katheer said in his Tafseer (4/219): : And in this verse Imaam Maalik ( ) used as evidence for the Takfeer of the Rawaafidh, those who are enraged with the Sahaabah ( ) . He said: That is because they become enraged with them and whoever is enraged with the Sahaabah then he is a Kaafir (disbeliever) due to this verse and a group of the Ulemaa (scholars), may Allaah be pleased with them (the Sahaabah ) , agreed with him on that. Imaam al-Qurtubee said in his Tafseer (16/297):

Maalik has done good in his statement and is correct in his interpretation, for anyone who lowers one of them or insults them in his narration them he has gone against Allaah, the Lord of All the Worlds, and falsified the legislation of the Muslims. And it is mentioned in As-Saarim al-Maslool of Shaykhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah: And Maalik, may Allaah be pleased with him, said: This group of people wanted to revile the Prophet but it was not possible for them, so they reviled the Companions until it was said about them: And evil man, even if he was a righteous man, however his companions are righteous. And Shaykhul Islaam ibn Taymiyyah also said: Whoever insults the Prophet should be killed, and whoever insults his Companions should be punished. And Abdul-Maalik bin Habeeb said: Whoever goes to extremes from the Sheeah in hating Uthmaan and freeing himself from him then he should be punished with a severe punishment, and if he increases to hating Abee Bakr and Umar then his punishment is harsher, and he should be beaten and his imprisonment increased until he dies. And al-Qaadhee Iyyaadh mentioned in his al-Madaarik: ) ( ) ( ) ( Haaroon ar-Rasheed had entered the Masjid and he sat down then he went to the grave of the Prophet and then he went to the sitting of Maalik and said: As-Salaamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatu. And Maalik said: Wa alaikum as Salaam wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatu. Then he said to Maalik: Is there any right for gain for the one who insults the companions of the Prophet ? He (Maalik ) said: No, and no honor. He said: And from where do you say that? He said: Allaah says: So that the disbelievers may become enraged with them so whoever thinks bad of them then he is a Kaafir (disbeliever) and there is no right for the disbeliever in the gains. And he used again as a proof: For the Fuqaraa and the Muhaajiroon, he said: For they are the Companions of the Messenger of Allaah , those who migrated with him, and aided him and those who come after them say: O our Lord forgive us and those who preceded us in Faith and do not make in our hearts spite for those who

believe, O our Lord verily you are the Most Merciful so whoever insults one of them then there is no right for them in it. Ibn Hazm reported, 17 That Hishaam bin Ammaar heard Imaam Maalik issuing a ruling of punishment of lashing for the one who insults Aboo Bakr and the punishment of killing for the one who insults the Mother of the Believers, Aaishah. So he was asked about the reason of the killing of the one whom insults Aaishah so he said: Because Allaah prohibited that with a strong prohibition in Surah an-Noor, verse 17 and warned us never to do that. Imaam Aboo Haneefah said when the Sheeah was mentioned to him: Whoever doubts in their disbelief then he is a disbeliever like them. Imaam Aboo Bakr al-Khallaal mentioned in his Sunnah (2/557) from Abee Bakr alMaaroodhee who reported that Maalik bin Anas said: The one who reviles the Companions of the Prophet ( ) does not have any share or portion in Islaam. Al-Khallaal also reported (2/557 558) that Imaam Ahmad said: The one who reviles the Companions, I fear for him disbelieve like that of the Rawaafidh. Imaam as-Samaanee said in his Al-Insaab 6/341, And the Ummah has consensus on the takfeer of the Imaamiyyah (raafidah), because they believe that the Sahaabah deviated and they denounce their consensus and ascribe to them that which is not affirmed of them. Imaam al-Bukhaaree said in his Khalq Afaal al-Ibaad 125, I do not give any consideration to prayer behind the Jahmee and the Raafidhee, nor praying behind a Jew or Christian. Do not greet them (i.e. the Jahmee and the Raafidhee), do not visit them, do not marry them, do not accept their testimony, nor eat their sacrificed. Shaykhul Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah reported in his as-Saarim al-Maslool on page 570 that

Ahmad bin Yoonus said: If a Jew was to sacrifice a sheep and a Raafidhee was to sacrifice one, I would eat the sacrifice of the Jew, and I will not eat the sacrifice of the Raafidhee because they are apostates from Islaam. Al-Bukhaaree reported in his Khalq Afaal al-Ibaad (125) from ibn Mahdee that he said, They are two separate religions, the Jahmiyyah and the Raafidhiyyah. Imaam al-Laalikaaee reported in his Usool al-Itiqaad Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaaah: I heard from Abdur-Rahmaan bin Mahdee and asked him about the Salaah behind the people of desire and he said: Yes, do not pray behind those two groups, the Jahmiyyah and the Rawaafidh, for the Jahmiyyah are disbelievers in the Book of Allaah. Ibn Battah reported in his al-Ibaanah (Number 200) that al-Marwazee said that he asked Aboo Abdillaah Ahmad bin Hanbal about the one who reviles Aboo Bakr and Umar and Uthmaan and Aaishah ( ) and he said: I do not see him upon Islaam. Imaam Ibn Hazm al-Andalusee said in his Fisal fee Milal wan Nihal (2/213): ) ( And as for their statement (meaning the Christians) in the case of the Rawaafidh and their changing of the Quraan, then the Rawaafidh are not from the Muslims. Indeed it is a sect which the first of them arose after the death of the Messenger of Allaah ) )by 25 years and it is a group that went the way of the Jews and the Christians in lying and disbelief. Imaam ash-Shaafiee and other Ulemaa stated that we should not narrate from the Raafidhah Sheeah as they are amongst the liars. Ibn Taymiyyah reported in his Minhaaj as-Sunnah (1/59 -62): Mumal Ibn Ihaab said: I heard Yazeed Bin Haaroon (d. 206H) saying, The narrations of every

person of innovation can be written as long as he is not a caller to it, except the Raafidah, since they are liars. Ibn Taymiyyah recorded in his Minhaaj as-Sunnah (1/69): Aboo Haatim ar-Raazee (d.277H) said, I heard Yoonus bin Abd al-Alaa saying: Ashhaab bin AbdulAzeez asked Maalik (d.179H) about the Raafidah, so he said, Do not speak to them and do not narrate from them, since they lie. And Aboo Haatim said, Harmalah related to us saying: I heard ash-Shaafiee (d.204H) saying, "I have not seen anyone testifying for more evil than the Raafidah. Imaam Ibn Battah mentioned in his al-Ibaanah (Number 193) that Aboo Bakr bin Ayyaash said: I will not pray over the Raafidhee or the Harooree, because the Raafidhee makes Umar a kaafir (disbeliever) and the Harooree makes Alee a Kaafir. Shaykhul Islaam ibn Taymiyyah said in his Majmoo al-Fataawa (28/ 482) about the Rawaafidh: They are an evil from the general people of desires, and they are more deserving of being killed than the Khawaarij. Al-Khallaal reported in his Sunnah (2/566) that Moosaa bin Haaroon bin Ziyaad said: I heard al-Faryaabee and a man asked him about the one who reviles Abaa Bakr and he said A disbeliever, he said, So is he to be prayed over? He said, No And I asked him, How is he to be dealt with when he says Laa Illaaha Illa Allaah? He replied, Do not touch him with your hands. Raise him upon a plank of wood so you can slide him into his pit.
