As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

  • He states that that all Shias are Muslims[2] whereas many Shias have beliefs that are inconsistent with the fundamental beliefs of Islam.[3]
  • He believes that Ya’jooj and Ma’jooj (Gog and Magog) have already been released in this world[4] while it is clearly mentioned in ahadith that they will be released after the decent of the Prophet Isa, alayhi assalaam.
  • There are many incorrect views of Imran Hossien. The above are just some of his incorrect views.
