Q: Do we regard Shiahs in our country as kaafir ?


A: Shias regard the Qur’aan Majeed to be distorted and attribute false allegations to the Azwaaj-e-Mutahharaat (The pure wives of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)). They revile the Sahaabah (Radiyallahu Anhum) and believe that the Sahaabah (Radhiyallahu Anhum) had turned apostate after the demise of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) (Al-Iyaazubillah). They believe in prostitution being permissible. How can people who have such beliefs be regarded as Muslims.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
