As faithfuls of progeny of prophet Mohammad (pbuh&hp) we feel the pain in multiple ways when it comes terrorism. We followers of Ahlulbayt (Shia Muslims) have been victims of terrorism by mislead “orthodox” or “extreme” sunni groups for a long time. In fact from early days of Islam. We detached ourselves from rest of the mislead and greedy so-called Muslim rulers, who were greedy, where distorting the teachings of Islam, and justifying violence. That is why they call us Rafidah, which means those that departed. This is because we followed our Imams not their Caliphs. We were told by our Imams who predicted one day it would come to this where corruption and misled extremism would bring Islam to this where they would commit all sort of wrong and injustice in name of religion. Islam had come to make wrong right and remove injustices but these days it is doing the exact opposite in some places.
This is why we believe in concept of a Savior, just like the religions before us. And true Shias (not those attached or mislead by any so-called “Shia” regime with worldly interest) wait for leading of our Imam and as Surah Asr (time graduation) says, true believers are those who are patient.
What happened in Boston in name of “protecting Islam” is just madness. It is true injustice one that claims he was “defending Islam” should know various verses that condemns killing outside justice. Some of these verses are :
“For what crime she was killed” ( 81:9)
“Do not take life, that Allah has made life sacred, except through justice and the law.” (6:151)
“Do not take life, that Allah has made sacred, except for a just cause. If anyone is killed unjustly, We allow his heir (to seek justice) but do not allow him to exceed bounds when it comes to taking life, for he is helped (by the law)” (17:33)
Even in time of Jihad (self defense wars), Quran has given Muslims limitations such as
“Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits, for Allah does not love transgressors.”
“That if anyone killed a person it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind.”
And there are many narrations from holy prophet and his holy progeny (peace be upon all of them) that teach about sanctity of human life and even when it comes to criminals, they tended to view them with much mercy and forgiveness.
But unfortunately, after 1400 years of corruption among the so called Muslim leaders and scholars, lots of bad teachings are going around specially in Sunni school of thought that now is influence heavily by the misguided and evil Salafi\Wahabi school of thought.
In a video scholars acknowledges and condemns the beast of terror that has embodied the Muslim world and offers condolences and condemnations. As indicated in our last post, we offered our condolences, and strongly condemn this shameful and inhumane act unconditionally. We prayed and will pray for peace of soul of those who died, and offer and sorrow and condolences to their family truthfully. We pray fast for recovery of injured and hurt, and we we pray for peace and end to injustice and terrorism of all kind.
Lastly, we offer a special prayer to little Martin, who is in heaven right now with his lord. and we offer condolences to his parents pray for patience and peace for his parents and family.
