◾All Shee’ah sects are misguided; they are either upon disbelief or innovation◾

Our Shaykh, Muhammad ibn Hizaam – may Allaah preserve him – was asked the following question:

📩 Question:

Is it true that within Shiism there is a rightly guided sect?

📝 Answer:

All Shee’ah sects are upon misguidance, with the exception of one sect amongst them who are upon innovation; the people of knowledge have not declared them to be disbelievers. And they are those who refrain from cursing the Sahaabah; so they do not curse Abu Bakr, nor ‘Umar [may Allah be pleased with them both]. However, they favour ‘Ali ibn Abi Taalib over ‘Uthmaan, saying that ‘Ali is better than ‘Uthmaan, and some of them even say he was more deserving of the khilaafah (leadership over the Muslims) than ‘Uthmaan.

But this is a misguided sect because they opposed the Sahaabah; the Sahaabah [may Allah be pleased with them all] favoured ‘Uthmaan over ‘Ali in the (order of) Khilaafah and in virtue. But this misguided sect opposed them in this.

Nonetheless, they are the least misguided from all the Raafidhah and Shee’ah sects, even though they are upon misguidance due to opposing the Sahaabah.

Moreover, many of them hide their true beliefs of Rafdh by referring to themselves as simply Shee’ah. And many of the Raafidhah conceal their true beliefs, saying “We are Shee’ah. We are Zayydiyyah”, whereas in reality, they are actually Raafidhah.
