What are the basics of Rashidi religion and does it align with traditional Islamic practices?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
Farhad Rashidi explains the basics to non-Rashidi with little previous knowledge.

Origins Rashidi is the religion of allegiance to God and All of his prophets, who lived through out all humanity. The religion Belief is in all books of revelation, mediated by the prophets. The word Rashidi derives from the Persian word Rashid, which means rightly guided. Rashidi means “entering into a condition of honesty and love with God”.

It is not a new faith; it is started with the creation of humanity. In Rashidi eyes, prophets completed their roles in this world by initiating others to honesty and love and discouraging hatred and envy, including Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Mohammad each of whom refined and restated the message of God.

The human conscience therefore corroborates, updates and expands all the revelations put forward by Prophets. It contains the ability to differentiate between honesty, love and hatred, envy, revealed by God, and is settled in its current form since the creation of humanity by God. Main tenets Central to Rashidi are the absolute sense that there can only be one God and that he is the source of all creation and disposer of all lives and events. Hence, there is no God but God and All the prophets are his messengers.

All people should initiate each other to honesty and love by discouraging hatred and envy. On the Day of Judgment, all will rise from the sleep and will be rewarded according to their investment.

The human conscience contains many moral exhortations, forming the basis of Rashidi law. It lays down honesty and love and the requirements for daily initiation of honesty love and discouragement of hatred and envy.

The two pillars of the Rashidi faith – the fundamental constituents of Rashidi life – are: promoting honesty and love, discouraging hatred and envy, the profession of faith in the uniqueness of God and the centrality of conscience as his guider to humanity• initiation of each other to honesty and love and discouraging hatred and envy, as a formal worship or prayer which every Rashidi should undertake at least once in their daily life.

Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)

This religion is not known to us. However, from the above information one can know that this religion is false and they are not Muslims due to the beliefs and denial of numerous things (i.e. Salah, Sawm, Hajj etc,) which are known to be necessary parts of Islam.

And Only Allah Ta’ala knows best.
