Despotic Rulers have Appointed Ahl al-Sunnah Imams

The proof indicating that the Imam of four schools of Ahl al-Sunnah, have also contradicted the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of the prophet, who commanded them to hold fast to the pure Itrah lies in the fact no one of them has conceded and get into their ark, and recognized the Imam of his time.

For instance, Abu Hanifah, thought being a disciple of al-Imam al-Sadiq, and was known of having said:" Had not the two years been there, al-Nu'man would have perished", has innovated a creed (madhhab) based of sophism (qiyas) and exerting the opinion against explicit texts (nusus)

Malik, who acquired knowledge under al-Imam al-Sadiq (A), and from whom it is narrated: "No eye has sighted, and no ear has heard, and no heart has ever thought of a human being more knowlwdgeable and more jurisprudential (afqah) than Ja'far al-Sadiq", has also innoveted an Islamic school, abondoning the Imam of his time, about whom he testifies himself that he was the most knowledgeable man in his era. The Abbasid rulers have suggestd to his mind, calling him "Imam Dar al Hijirah (Imam of migration house), after which Malik became a man of high status, influence, power and might.

Al-shafi'i too, who is accused of following the guide of Ahl al-Bayt, after saying in their regard the following the guide of Ahl al-Bayt, after saying in their regard the following well-known verses:

O the prophet's Household, your love,

Is an obligation from Allah revealed in the Qur'an,

You are sufficed with having virtue that,

The prayer of one never saying benediction upon you is not accepted. Also the following line is ascribed to him:

If loving Al-Muhammad is a rejection (rafd)

Then thaqalayn bear witness I am Rafidi

If the thaqalayn bear witness of his being a Rafidi, so why hasn't he rejected the schools that were established in opposition to Ahl al-Bayt, but instead he innoveted a school by his name, abandonning the Imams of Ahl al-Bayt to his time?

After that comes the turn of Ahmad ibn Hanbal, who acknowledge 'Ali as the fourth caliph, adding his name to the Guided Caliphs after he was negated, compiling in his regard kitab al-fada'il book of vertues) and being known of saying: "The veracious Asanid (sihah ) have never reported virtues for any Companion as those ascribed to Ali (may God be pleased with him)"

Despite all this, he has innovated a school in Islam called the Hanbali school, though all his contemporary ulama confirm his not being a faqih. Abu Zuhrah has said in his regard: "Ahmad ibn Hanbal was not regerded among the fuqaha by numerous ealier historians, like Ibn Qutaybah, and Ibn Jarir al-Tabari and others"82

Then came Ibn Taymiyyah who held the standard of the Hanbali school, adding to it some new theories that prohibit visiting the graves and building over them, and beseeching the prophet and Ahl al-Bayt, regarding these acts as forms of polytheism.

This is the reality of the four schools, and this is the nature of their Imams, and the sayings ascribed to them in regard of the pure progeny of Ahl al-Bayt.

They either say that which they do not (do), which is most hateful in the sight of Allah, or may be these schools have not been innovated by these Imams, but their followers, the stooges of the Ummayyads and Abbasids, have founded those schools with the Support of the despotic rulers, and then ascribed them (school) to them after their death, the details of which will be disclosed in the coming chapters.

Isn't it surprising that these Imams who lived in the time of the Imam of guidance from Ahl al-Bayt, but then shunnd their straight path and were neither guided by their guidance, nor have acquired from their light, nor giving precedence to their hadith about their grandfather the Messenger of Allah (S) but they preferred to them the Jew Archbishop (Ka'b al-ahbar), and Abu Hurayrah al-Dusi about whom Amir al-Mu'minin Ali (A) has said: "The biggest liar same statement is also reported from A'ishah, the daughter of Abu Bakr.

They also preferred to them Abd Allah ibn Umar, the (nasibi) who was known of his intense harted towards al-Imam Ali, and refrained from acknowledging him and achnowledged instead the leader of deviation-- al-Hajjaj ibn Yusuf, Further they preferred to them Amr ibn al-As, who was Mua'wiyah 's vizier for froud and hypocrisy.

Don't you wonder how could these Imam grant themselves the right to legislate in God;s religion according to their opinions and ijtihadat till they obliterated the prophetic Sunnah with the heresies they innovated like qiyas sophism), itishab (companionship), cloing gate of pretexts, and masalih musalah (delegated interests), and other alike heresies of them for which no warrant from Allah has been revealed?

Has Allah and His Messenger neglected to perfect the religion, permitting them to make it perfect with their ijtihadat, being free to make lawful and prohibit, a they like?

Aren't you astonished at the Muslims claiming to hold fast to the "Sunnah" how to imitate men never being aware of the prophet not he recognozed them?!

Do they have any evidence from the book of Allah, or the sunnah of His prophet, for following and imitating those four Imams, leaders of the school?!

I challenged the thaqalayn of mankind and jinn to bring forward from Allah's Book or His prophet's Sunnah one evidence for their conduct. I swear by God, they can't and will never produce any evidence though they were helpers one of the another.

No by God, there is no evidence in the Book of Allah, or in His prophet's Sunnah, but that which calls for following and imitating the pure Imams, of the prophet's progeny (God's benediction be upon him and them). For this there are numerous evidences, irrefutable arguments and glaring realites.

The holy Qur'an has stated:

"So learn a lesson O ye who have eyes!'' (59:2)

It also said:

"For indeed it is not the eyes that grow blind, but it is the hearts, which are within the bosoms, that grow blind"(22:46)
