In his article Azerbaijan-Israel: A Shia Jewish Alliance, Mr Roy Tov, A Jewish convert to Christianity asks, "Can this unlikely pact be explained?" Whilst the realpolitik he presents as explanation is certainly relevant, Muslims of the Sunnah should not be surprised and should not find anything "unlikely" about this. This topic cannot be fully covered in this short article and only certain points are presented for the reader's further study.
What is surprising about a pact which was forged from day one? Firstly, we of the Ahlus Sunnah are the real Shiah [partisans] of Ali [may Allah be pleased with him]. They who attribute false claims to him were labelled by his descendant, Zayd, as, "Rawāfid," Dissenters. That Rifd was initiated by a Yemeni Rabbi, Abdullah bin Saba, is known and admitted even by the Rawaafid, e.g.Rijal-i-Kashi, p.71. What many need further education on is how Jews further fostered Rifd ideology through the centuries. Arabic readers should avail themselves of the book لله ثم للتاريخ كشف الأسرار وتبرئة الأئمة الأطهار (For Allah then History, Revealing the Secrets and Exonerating the Pure Imaams). The author, as-Sayyid Ḥusyan al-Musawī was a Rāfidi scholar and confidante of the exiled Khomeini. Allah guided him and he exposed the truth behind Rifd. May Allah grant me the opportunity to translate this much needed book into English.
This book is not the only one to discuss the prophesies of the Rawāfiḍ:
- The Rāfidā Mahdi will rule with the Law of David.
- He will speak Hebrew.
- His reign will initiate a massacre of Arabs and Sunnis.
- He will demolish al-Masjid an-Nabawi and revere Karbala instead.
- so... is he Shiah Mahdi, Jewish Messiah or ad-Dajjal? Clearly all three rolled into one! The aim of the Rabbis whom al-Musawi exposed, was to deviate as many Muslims as possible to accept Dajjal, their Messiah, as the Mahdi. To a great extent they have succeeded.
Examine history and know that they are not our brothers.
- They joined hands with the Crusaders against Islām.
- Their plots drew in the Mongols who massacred hundreds of thousands of Sunnis in Baghdad whilst sparing the Rawaafid. [A study comparing contemporary Baghdad might be in order].
- Persia was majority Sunni (Shaafi'ee). The Rawāfiḍ enforced conversion at the point of the sword in 1502. This is why the borders, where the army's reach was weaker, are still Sunni. Again , the hundreds of thousands of Sunnis butchered meant nothing to them.
- To this day, Sunnī Masājid are demolished in Iran, whilst Jews are accorded full respect. "Khomeini" was one of the greatest deceptions of the past half century. A good starting point to discover the truth would be this link.
- Many more events expose the Rawāfiḍ. It should also be mentioned that if one examines the ancestry of the "Young Turks" whose coup was directly designed to destroy the Ottoman Empire and hand over Palestine to the Zionists, everyone of them will be found to be descended from the elder brothers of the Rawāfiḍ, the Jews.
In conclusion, consider why did Rasūlullāh صلى الله عليه وسلم say that 70,000 Jews from Isfahaan (Iran) will follow ad-Dajjal as narrated by Muslim, but also "70,000 from my Ummah" as recorded in Sharhus Sunnah? Who are the only ones who can be "Jews" and "my Ummah" at one and the same time? A group initiated and nurtured by the Jews but who also claim to be Muslim. A group which came to control Ifahaan 500 years ago. A group also in control of Azerbaijān.
A pact unlikely on the surface, but absolutely unsurprising in the light of history.
