In The Name of Allaah, The Most merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Al-Allaamah Rabee Bin Haadi Al-Madkhalee [may Allaah preserve him] said:

By Allaah! Islaam and the Muslims are not ruined except by these type of [people] amongst the people of bidah and misguidance-the khawaarij and those similar to them, and those who are worse such as the Rawaafid.

The rawaafid are worse than the khawaarij, and Ikhwaan al-Muslimoon (Ref1) ally with them and say: “They [rawaafid] are our brothers; the differing between us and them is like the differing between [Imaam] Maalik and [Imaam] Shaafi’ee- Meaning: The differing between us [i.e. Ikhwaan Muslimoon] and them [i.e. rawaafid Shiites] is based on ijtihaad. If Imaam [Maalik] and [Imaam] Shafee’ee differ in [some] affairs, they are all rewarded. And if we [ikhwaan al-muslimoon] differ with the rawaafid shiites, then us and them are rewarded.

O deceivers! [i.e. Ikhwaanis] The rawaafid revile the Sahaabah and declare them disbelievers; they revile the wives of the Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallaam]; they say that the Qur’aan is distorted; they have shir’kiyyaat [i.e. beliefs, views and acts of major polytheism] and they deify the leaders of the Prophet’s family. So does all of this not harm them [i.e. harm their claim to Islaam]? Is this not irjaa?! [i.e. O Ikhwaanis! Is this alliance of yours with the rawaafid and your claim that the differing between you and them is like the differing between Imaams Maalik and Shaafi’ee not Ir’jaa?!(Ref 2)]
