Reality of the state of Iran and Kufr of it’s founder Ayatullah Al Khumaini

Question :

The permanent committee of scholars was asked regarding some misconceptions regarding the state of Iran like,

1. In today’s Muslim world, there is no state that applies Allah’s Rulings except Iran.

2. There is no true Muslim leader except Ayatollah Khomeini.

Answer :

As to the claim that in today’s Muslim world Iran is the only state that abides by Allah’s rules and that there is no true Muslim leader but Ayatollah Khomeini, it is sheer falsehood and a lie. The reality of Iran and their creed and the ideas of their leader are witness to this. The state of Iran follows the ideology of “Twelvers Imamite Shi`ah”.

Declaration from Scholars of Twelvers Imamite Shi`ah that the Qur’an collected by Uthman (may Allah be pleased with him) is not authentic

The Twelvers Imamite Shi`ah report from their Imams that the Qur’an that was collected by `Uthman ibn `Affan (may Allah be pleased with him) at the hands of the Companions who had memorized it, was falsified, perverted, and altered. They claim that some of the Qur’an’s words and sentences were substituted and some Ayahs (Qur’anic verses) and Surahs were omitted.

For more information in this regard, refer to, “Fasl Al-Khitab Fi Tahrif Kitab Rab Al-Arbab” a book by Husayn ibn Muhammad Taqy Al-Nury Al-Tabrasy. In this book the writer claims that the Qur’an was perverted. Also you may refer to the books of other writers who defend the Shiites like “Minhaj Al-Karamah” by Ibn Al-Mutahar.

They don’t believe in authentic Sunnah like Sahih Al Bukhari and Sahih Muslim whose authenticity was agreed upon by the Muslims

They also overlook the source books of authentic Sunnah like the two Sahih (authentic) books of Al-Bukhari and Muslim. They do not consider them source books for them to derive evidences of legal rulings of `Aqidah (creed) and Fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence) thereof. They do not even depend on them in interpreting and explaining the Qur’an. In fact, they have fabricated books on Hadith and established unsound rules in this concern. They depend on these fabricated books to distinguish the authentic from the weak reports.

They don’t belive in authenticity of the Qur’an and Sunnah of Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), so how can their ruling will be according to Islamic Shari’ah ?

Moreover, among their basic fundamentals for deriving the judgments is the statements of the twelve infallible imams they claim. How can they then have the knowledge of the Qur’an, the authentic Sunnah, and the rules and judgments of Shari`ah to lead the Iranian nation according to the rules of Shari`ah?

Major Kufr of Ayatullah Al Khumaini by declaring that their Twelve Imams are superior than Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and other Prophets (Alaihimussalam)

How then can they claim that there is no true Muslim leader except Ayatollah Khomeini who once stated, “An Imam has a praised position, a high status, and a universal caliphate to rule even the atoms of universe. It is one of the basic principles of our school that our imams are endowed with ranks that no honorable angel or a sent prophet can reach.” (Refer to “Al-Hukumah Al-Islamiyyah” under the title: “Al-Wilayah Al-Takwiniyyah”, p.52:

[Our Shaykh, Al Imam Muqbil Rahimahullah has declared Ayatullah Al Khumaini to be Kafir because of this statement and his some other statements. The book “Al-Hukumah Al-Islamiyyah” was distributed by Embassy of Iran in Yemen.

Source for fatwa of Al Imam Muqbil, his book – “Al Musaara`ah 126-127”]

May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
