Hujjat al-Islam Mahmoud Rajabi, a member of the Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom, explained that Lady Fatimah al-Zahra, the daughter of the Prophet Muhammad, has a heavenly and divine position. He emphasized that the belief of the lofty status of the Holy Household of the Prophet Muhammad is a basic tenet of Shi’ah Islam and it is based on Quranic verses and narrations, according to Rasa news.
He added that Sunni Muslims also accept the lofty position of the Prophet’s Household in their narrations and this is not just a Shi’ite concern, but some do not realize this truth and consider those who accept it as infidels. He explained that the Wahhabi faith is not based on reason nor is it compatible with the explicit principles of the Quran. “For example,” he added, “Wahhabi scholars such as ibn Taymiyyah have a[absurdly] claimed that God is physically sitting in heaven and comes to earth on Friday nights.”
The deputy of Imam Khomeini Education and Research Institute noted that Wahhabis are frightened by the promotion of the virtues of Lady Fatimah, but emphasized that loving the Holy Family of the Prophet is based on the Quran.
Hujjat al-Islam Rajabi explained that Wahhabism was created by the hands of the colonialist powers – the United States and the United Kingdom. They are engaged in promoting a form of Islam which is contrary to true Islam. Wahhabism was created to promote division and dissention in the Islamic world and to consider Shi’ites as infidels. DAESH (ISIL) was founded upon the Takfiri-Wahhabi ideology and in this name, they commit crimes.
The member of the Society of Seminary Teachers pointed out that currently satellite networks and websites are being used to spread doubts and false information about the personality of Lady Fatimah al-Zahra. This indicates that those who have created Wahhabism are continuing to attempt to spread doubts against Shi’ism to strengthen the false Wahhabi school of thought.
Hujjat al-Islam Rajabi said that Wahhabis are the mercenaries of the US, UK and the Zionists, adding that one of the goals of this dangerous group is to create quarrels between Sunnis and Shi’ites. He warned all Muslims to be careful of their cunning plots. He said the best way to eliminate and destroy the enemies of Islam’s plots to sow discord between Sunnis and Shi’ites is to love the Prophet Muhammad’s Holy Family as this action promotes unity among Muslims. “The enemy seeks to damage Islam by creating divisiveness among Shi’ites and Sunnis,” he explained.
Hujjat al-slam Rajabi continued by stating that the enemies’ propaganda against Islam is meant to create differences among Muslims by destroying their unity and affection. They seek to dominate Muslims by the strategy of “divide and rule.” In order to do this, they established Wahhabism and Baha’ism.
His Eminence explained that Muslim unity can mitigate and prevent the attacks of the arrogant countries. He also emphasizing that even among the Shi’ah, there are those working against Islamic unity and have been hired by the enemies. “They have established dozens of satellite channels which propagate cursing the caliphs (and revered personalities of the Sunnis) and fuelling division among Muslims. It should be noted that the weakness of Muslims is due to the arrogant powers,” he explained.
