Q: Shia’s claim that their Kalima which they practice is in holy quran. Is it true? And As alot of scholars interpret and say that shia is not a sect but was a political movement of the kufies. To what extent is it true and if it is true,i would like to have a hadeeth reference about kufi ppl actually are the shia.
A: The shias do not believe in the entire Qur’aan like they suppose to believe. How can they be Muslims. In fact their belief in the Qur’aan has been distorted, so how can they use the Qur’aan to prove anything.
This is a secondary matter. But when they do not believe the Qur’aan Shareef to be exactly the word of Allah then they do not have a place in Islam.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
