Exactly who is Their Lord Then? And Prophet?

June 11, 2020 § Leave a comment


Niʿmatullah al-Jazāʾirī, from Jazāʾir in Iraq not Algeria the country, who died in 1112, and who the Shīʿites call, “The complete scholar,” amongst other things, and who is one of their ‘ḥadīth scholars,’ said:

“We are not in agreement with them on a God, nor a Prophet, nor an Imām. Because they say that their Lord is the one whose Prophet was Muḥammad and whose Khalīfah after him was Abū Bakr, but we do not believe in this Lord, nor that Prophet—in fact, we say that the Lord whose Prophet’s Khalīfah was Abū Bakr is not our Lord, and nor is that Prophet our Prophet.”
Al-Anwār an-Nuʿmāniyyah, al-Aʿlā print, Beirut, 2010, vol. 2, p. 243.
