Martyrdom of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) Part 2


Martyrdom of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA)

Part 2



Before presenting more Sunni narrations in this regard, let us think about the significance of the issue of the martyrdom of the Prophet Mohammad (SAWA) … on the one hand, if the martyrdom of the most exalted and the most beloved creation of the One and Only Creator is proven that itself is the greatest injustice in the history of humankind and the gravest direct act against the Compassionate and Benevolent Allah and His Sovereignty, for, Allah SWT created Mohammad (SAWA) to be His chosen lord of His entire creation … and on the other hand, in addition to other undeniable reasons and proofs, it proves once again the unrightfulness of the so called Sunni self-appointed caliphs thus the unrightfulness of the Sunni creed and whatever other creeds followed thenceforth …


When the Rightful Allah-Appointed Infallible Imams (SBUT)- i.e. the True Successors of the very Last Prophet of Allah- and their teachings- being the True teachings of the Majid Qur’an and the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA), and thus the True and perfected teachings of all previous Prophets and their Allah-Appointed Successors (SBUT)- were forsaken, the door for Shaitan-tempted impostors and deviated interpretations of the Word and Will of Allah was again- as it was after previous Prophets- opened … one of the first results was the production of the sunni false doctrine- which was a mixture of previous pagan and … beliefs with some truth-resembled layers- … and among later results of the forsakedness of the pure teachings of the AhlulBayt (SBUT) have been the production of more deceiving creeds, copying and expanding the thinking designs of pagan and deviated jewish and christian philosophers, and imaginations of pagan and deviated jewish and christian mystics , and eastern and western myths, and …


Among such abominations has been Sufism, the root of irfan … expanded by the likes of the sunni Muhyiddin ibn Arabi and Jalaluddin Rumi (Molavi); an abomination which later entered into some of the Shi’ah too  … similarities of the jewish kabbalah, christian Gnosticism and Islamic Sufism and irfan are alarming; for instance similarities of one of the most famous Jewish kabbalistic literature, the Zohar- which is said to be a product of medieval Spanish judaism, with its strong links to christian and islamic mysticism-, and ibn Arabi’s writings such as the Futuhat are painfully eye-opening …


More and more the so called scholars of jewish kabbala, christian mysticism and Gnosticism, and islamic Sufism and irfan, have been exploring the hidden relationships between these innovations to the teachings of Prophets, these man-made, Shaitan-inspired schools of thoughts and imaginations:  


“The endurance of the “Oriental” kabbalists, commemorating the names of the Almighty in Jerusalem, and thus reflecting the positive impact of the Islamic environment on Jewish believers, presents a uniquely fecund, but contemporary example of the hidden, vital relationship between Jewish Kabbalah and Islamic Sufism … the common essence of Jewish Kabbalah, Islamic Sufism and Christian spirituality.” (Stephen Schwartz)


Rabbi Ariel Bension in “The Zohar in Moslem and Christian Spain” (1932, reprinted 2016) declares that Ibn Arabi and the author of Zohar share many conceptions about God …:


“For while the authors of the Zohar knew the original Hebrew sources, they may have been intrigued by the distinctive Spanish garments in which IBN ARABI clothed the ideas HE TOOK FROM THEM. In Ibn Arabi's book, Al Futuhat, and in the Zohar, we get a grandiose picture of Paradise against a warm background of peculiarly Spanish fantasy. Thus, all that had gone into the making of traditional belief, all that had come down from generation to generation was put into the mystics' crucible and moulded into a creation …”


In an introduction to Bension, Sir Denison Ross, then-director of the School of Oriental Studies at the University of London, credits Bension as "the first writer to deal with the influence on JEWISH mysticism of certain characteristics which underlie so much of the literature produced in Spain both by CHRISTIANS and MUSLIMS."


"It was no COEINCIDENCE that the earliest Kabbalistic writings and the work of (SUFI PHILOSOPHER) Ibn Arabi appeared around the same time (late 12th-early 13th-centuries). Jewish refugees from Muslim Spain were breathing new life into the doctrines and imagery developed by the Sufis in Baghdad and later in Andalusia (Spain), CREATING the new system of mysticism known as the Kabbalah." (Michael McGaha, Medieval Encounters III, (1997), pg. 57.)


Joseph Jacobs and Isaac Broydé in an article under ZOHAR  in state that “As far as is known, the Vedanta school of the Hindu philosophers found nowhere, outside of its place of origin, so many admirers as in Persia in the eighth century. Under its influence the Mohammedans of Persia founded many mystic sects, among them being that of the Sufis, who for many centuries were very numerous. This mystic movement did not fail to exercise an influence upon the Persian Jews, and there arose among them various sects, such as the 'Isawites, the Yudghanites, etc., the tenets of which, so far as can be ascertained from the scanty information concerning them that is available, bore more or less the stamp of the Vedanta philosophy. Thus the Yudghanites abstained from meat, led ascetic lives, set aside the literal meaning of the Torah for a supposed mystic interpretation, and believed in metempsychosis, etc. All these sects had their sacred writings, which they kept secret; and these writings probably formed the nucleus of the Zohar, which is a mystic commentary on the Pentateuch, as the upanishads are the mystic interpretation of the Vedas and other Brahmanic scriptures. In its peregrinations from Persia to Spain the Zohar probably received many additions and interpolations, among which may have been the various names of the Tannaim and Amoraim, as well as the allusions to historical events.”


“… in the “Golden Words of a Sufi Sheikh”, Sufism appears as a Gnostic CHAMELEON always nodding its head. Gnostic thoughts had been rejected by Christianity, found a new host and became its spiritual brain, the muscle and sinew. First by oral tradition, later in writings … the meaning of the word [sufi] has been often connected with the word “wool” (suf), from which are made the clothing for ascetics. Sufism embodies so the essence of the Cabbala as well as those of the Christian Gnostics … HOW TO UNITE WITH GOD … Figures like RUMI [Molavi] have become well published. Based rather on poetry than history … Sufism has come to mean a wide range of beliefs that center on the quest for personal enlightenment in the union with God. Sufis are sometimes described as the mystics of Islam, but Sufism fits awkwardly in the categories of religions. A CORNERSTONE of mysticism is that true KNOWLEDGE OF GOD is achieved DIRECTLY and not through an intermediary like a PROPHET … Arguably Sufis can be seen as one strain of the Gnostic syncretic virus which, after it was stamped out within Christianity, TOOK OVER successfully the rising Islam as external host for mutual benefit … whereas Sufi used the spread of Islam taking over the East and almost half of Europe as VEHICLE AND PROTECTIVE SHELL … The Sufi work is foremost the quest for gnosis (ma’rifah) – the state of opening or illumination in UNION WITH GOD … While Sufi teachings have been influenced by various religions, their practices also bear close similarities to those of HINDUISM and other mystical religions of the East. The Sufi orders are led by shaikhs, who play the same role as Hindu gurus … As Islam prevailed, the secret Christian HERESY of gnosticism survived within Islam …” (Carl G. Jung)


Western Sufism: From the Abbasids to the New Age, by Mark Sedgwick:

“Western Sufism 22 i biographer Porphyry, Plotinus achieved homoiosis four times.24 Homoiosis is the objective of Plotinus's teaching (as it was the objective of Plato), and thus of the Neoplatonic system, and thus of mystics from Ibn Arabi to John G. Bennett. It is, or can be taken as, what is known as the mystical experience.”


The first person in Islam who called himself sufi was Abu Haashem Kufi in the 2ND CENTURY A.H. In Taraa’eq al-Haqaa’eq Abu Haashem is referred to as the founder of Sufism.


The first Khaaneqaah (sufi monastery) ever built in Islamic territory was by a CHRISTIAN governor in Shaam (Syria …). (Nafahaat al-Ons, Jaami)


firstly, it is important to mention that we absolutely do not confirm the intentions and goals of above writers and likes of them; but the vital point to pay careful attention is that  in general mysticism, or any other name and outer cover which have ever been used for this system of belief such as hinduism or buddhism or kabbalah or gnosticism or pluralism or universalism or charismatic isms or sufism or irfan or …, is basically a system of belief that while it, as a protective shield, has originally been pretending to use certain selected teachings of God, Prophets and … within and based on different cultures, but it has been misinterpreting them to fit their purpose of, implicitly and explicitly, propagating that every one- being an image of God, being a part of God reuniting with Him, and …- should gain the knowledge and secrets himself directly and not through learning and absolutely obeying commands, teachings and interpretations of Prophets, for, one can receive revelations just like or even better than Prophets; i.e. this system of belief some times explicitly, and other times implicitly- by presenting ideas different from Prophets’ teachings- while maintaining pretended humility toward Prophets, practically rejects the UNIQUE and exalted and “chosen by God” position of Prophets as Infallible individuals, uniquely possessing God-Bestowed Knowledge who are to teach humankind, rather this system in essence teaches that all humans can gain secrets and gnosis surpassing and even contradicting any previously revealed knowledge …


The god and prophets which such systems refer too are not the True God and Prophets, rather their god and prophets are Shaitan-inspired mental idols and figment of imaginations of these mystics which have the same names as the True God and Prophets … we cordially invite readers to refer to the article “The real ‘Eesa -Jesus- (PBUH), or a figment of imagination called jesus?!” in this site:

The result, as seen, has become that the aim of life in these mystic systems is polytheistically ROBOOBIYAT, i.e. REACHING AND UNITING WITH GOD which means TO BECOME ONE WITH GOD, THE CREATOR, in direct contrast with the aim of creation expressed by God, and that is ‘OBOODIYAT, i.e. REALIZING THAT THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DEITY BUT ALLAH AND THAT EVERY THING ELSE IS HIS CREATION AND EVERY THING ANY ONE HAS IS HIS AND HE BESTOWS TO CREATIONS BY HIS GRACE AND HE CAN TAKE IT AWAY IF HE SO benevolently WILLS … realization of the fact that creations owe absolutely everything to the Munificent and Merciful Allah is the achievement of honest and sincere humbleness before the All-Loving Almighty Creator and purification from arrogance, and thus achievement of dignified ‘Oboodiyat:


Qur’an 51:56 And I (God) have not created the jinn-kind and the mankind except that (leYa’bodoon) they should serve and obey Me.


Please also refer to the article “Aim of creation” in this site:


Therefore God- whom no thing is like unto Him (Qur’an 42:11)- has created humankind and jinn-kind so that they may with their free will realize that there is no deity but Allah Who is unlike to any thing whatsoever, and that power and knowledge of CREATIONS are from THE CREATOR, to guide them to become ‘abds عبد and to also test them in this path …; this is exactly where Shaitan fell, he refused to obey God while he was pretending to worship God … Shaitan has created such systems of belief so that humankind may also fall and thus soon join him in Hell …


In essence, in mystic systems of belief tawhid or oneness of god means there is no being but God! Thus everything whatsoever, humans and insects and excrement and … are the same being as God …


Therefore the gist of the meaning of tawhid in mystic beliefs, wrapped in colorful and twisted statements and justifications, is: THERE IS NO BEING BUT GOD … I.E. UNITY OF BEING …


Whereas the meaning of Tawhid in teachings of God and Prophets is: THERE IS NO DEITY BUT GOD … I.E. UNITY OF GOD


UNITY OF BEING (God and every thing else are one unique and common being …) versus UNITY OF GOD (There is only One God, unsimilar and incomparable to His creations, every thing else are His creations which have not been with or a part of God in any form whatsoever eternally with no beginning, and nothing have been issued from within the Dhaat ذات (Essence …) of God; thus the being of creations is not the same as God … SOBHAANALLAH …)


Shaitan has designed a malevolent plan to confront Tawhid which is the foundation of the Religion of God, the everlasting foundation of pure life … to achieve this plan he has been trying to erect false religions, sometimes seemingly soft and mystic, sometimes harsh and fanatic, to confront the one and only Religion of Allah … to achieve this plan he has been trying to eliminate Infallible Prophets and their God-Chosen Successors and distort their Pure Divine teachings … to achieve this plan he has been trying to conceal the Allah-Bestowed Wilayat and Lordship of Hazrat Mohammad and the AhlulBayt (SBUT) as the supreme and unique possessors and protectors of the Truth …


For an analysis of the plan of the very learned Shaitan- who used to stand with angels- to oppose the Divine Plan and Tradition, thru inspiring and infusing into minds what he wishes and making them believe that they are being inspired by God, and thereby misguiding creations … please refer to the E-book “Dajjaal … Antichrist” in this site:


NEVER, in the teachings of Hazrat Mohammad (SAWA), and the teachings of his Allah-Chosen Successors, the protectors and propagators of his (SAWA) Allah-Revealed Pure teachings, the AhlulBayt (SBUT), they claimed to have reached Allah and become one with Him- SOBHAANALLAH- rather they always asserted to be ‘abds i.e. servants of Allah …


Let us get to know the aforementioned “Spanish” Muhyiddin ibn ‘Arabi who is known as the greatest Sufi Master, a little better; he is sadly so praised by some muslims, sunni and shi’ah, as a great muslim; but he is also being praised by many mystics in the east and west of the world. Many in the west consider ibn ‘Arabi- who, they confess, was effected by hinduism, judaism, christianity, islam, greek philosophy and …,, a great western thinker:


Stephen Hirtenstein the editor of the Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi Society Journal, after presenting the following poem[*] from ibn ‘Arabi, then states:


block quote

O Marvel! a garden amidst the flames.

My heart has become capable of every form:

it is a pasture for gazelles and a convent for Christian monks,

and a temple for idols and the pilgrim's Kaaba,

and the tables of the Torah and the book of the Quran.

I follow the religion of Love: whatever way Love's camels take,

that is my religion and my faith.


'Tarjuman al-Ashwaq'. Theosophical Publishing House, 1911. Poem XI.


block quote end


“Muhammed Ibn 'Ali Ibn 'Arabi was born in Murcia in southern Spain in 1165 AD (560AH), at the time of the flowering of the Hispano-Arab culture. Since the invasion of the Iberian peninsula by the [muslim] Moors in 711 AD, the southern half of Spain had been 'arabised' under Islamic rule, and Arabic became the common language of all educated people. Here in 'al-Andalus' the three major traditions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam flourished side by side … a world where the great classics of Greek literature, especially Aristotle and Plato, were translated (first into Arabic and then into Latin) and studied alongside the spiritual teachings of the three Abrahamic religions. Ibn 'Arabi grew up in an atmosphere steeped in the most important ideas - scientific, religious and philosophical - of his day … this was an essential ingredient in the formation of one of the most brilliant minds in the Western world. As the poem above demonstrates … Although many writers have characterised him as a great Sufi teacher firmly rooted in the Islamic world, it would be wrong to limit his appeal to a muslim audience … Naturally he expresses himself within the cultural context he knew …”


[* It is vital to, as repeated and proven over and over in this site, always keep in mind that what is known as Judaism and christianity and … in the world today- as the result of Shaitan’s hard work and his followers’ zealousness- are far from the Pure teachings of True Prophets (SBUT) …]


And the following is a statement from ibn ‘Arabi which expresses the gist of his mystic belief:


“For the verifiers it has been established that there is nothing in Being but God.”

Futuhat II. 69. Trans. W. Chittick.




And here are a few statements from the Munajaat of Hazrat ‘Ali, the one and only AmirulMo’menin (SBUH) in the Masjid of Kufah which are based on Verses of Qur’an and absolutely against any kind of unity between human and God:


O Allah, I ask You for protection on the Day when property will not avail, nor sons, except he who comes with a Saleem heart (free from evil …); And I ask You for protection on the Day when the unjust one will bite his hands saying: O would that I had taken a path with the Messenger … And I ask You for protection on the Day when the unjust shall not benefit from their excuse and for them is curse and for them is the evil abode; And I ask You for protection on the Day when no person shall control anything for (another) self and the command on that Day shall be entirely Allah's … And I ask You for protection on the day when the guilty will wish to redeem himself from the chastisement of that day by (sacrificing) his children, and the near of kin who gave him shelter and all those that are in the earth (wising) that this might deliver him, NAY, BY NO MEANS! Surely it is a flaming FIRE … My Lord, O my Lord, You are the Lord and Master and I am the Slave, and who else can be merciful to the slave except the Master? My Lord, O my Lord, You are the Owner and I am the one owned by You, and who else can be merciful to the owned except the owner? My Lord, O my Lord, You are the Undefeated Mighty and I am the low and defeated, and who else can be merciful to the low except the Mighty? My Lord, O my Lord, You are the Creator and I am the created, and who else can be merciful to the created except the Creator? … My Lord, O my Lord, You are the Powerful and I am the weak, and who else can be merciful to the weak except the Powerful? … My Lord, O my Lord, You are the Bestower and I am the beggar, and who else can be merciful to the beggar except the Bestower? My Lord, O my Lord, You are the Living and I am the dead, and who else can be merciful to the dead except the Living? My Lord, O my Lord, You are the Eternal and I am the transient, and who else can be merciful to the transient except the Eternal? …


The Prophet Muhammad and the AhlulBayt (SBUT) have strongly denounced the sufi; as a sample the Prophet (SAWA) in a Hadith has asserted that the Hour would not occur upon his Ummah until there would rise a group in his Ummah, their name would be al-sufi who would not be from the Prophet and they would go astray even more so than the disbelievers and that their abode would be the Fire … (Safinah al-Bihar, Mohaddeth al-Qommi, vol. 2, p. 58, Faraahaani Publications; sharh of Nahj al-Balaaghah, ‘Allaamah Khoyee, vol. 14, p. 3 in the new edition; …)


And as a sample saying from the AhlulBayt (SBUT), Imam Sadiq (SBUH) has regarded the sufi as the enemies of the AhlulBayt, even those who would claim to love the AhlulBayt and yet incline toward the sufi and justify their sayings; the Imam (SBUH) asserted that they would not be of them and that they (SBUT) dislike them, and that any one refuting them would be like those accompanying the Prophet in Jihad against disbelievers … (Safinah al-Bihar, vol. 2, p. 57, Farahaani Publications; Menhaaj al-Baraa’ah, ‘Allaamah Khoyee, vol. 6, p. 304; …)


It is also noteworthy to mention that the genuine Shi’ah scholars and Foqaha (jurisprudents) have always denounced ibn ‘Arabi; as a sample, the well-known Shaikh Hurr al-‘Aameli the compiler of the renowned Wasaa’el al-Shi’ah has considered the position of ibn ‘Arabi as way more objectionable and offensive than that of al-Ghazali, then he has listed some of ibn Arabi’s offensive claims, among which are ibn Arabi’s detailed claim- in his book al-Futuhat- of being taken to heavens 9 times, and meeting and surpassing Prophets in different skies, and above all of them seeing AbuBakr on the ‘Arsh (Throne …) of God, and also claiming superiority over Hadrat Mohammad (SAWA); another offensive claim that the Shaikh has mentioned is ibn Arabi’s claim of Wilayat, and his claim that Wilayat had come to an end with him; according to the commentator of Fusus al-Hekam Wilayat was given to ibn Arabi after he practiced seclusion and abstinence from food for 9 months;  the Shaikh has also accused him of fabricating and faking unbelievable hadiths in Futuhat; the Shaikh has also mentioned that ibn Arabi claimed that God made the Shi’ah to appear as pigs in view of the man of insight; The Shaikh has also mentioned that in view of ibn Arabi Mo’awiyah, Yazid and … possessed depth of caliphate; and …


Ayatullah Sayyid Hasan Sadr in his Takmelah Amal al-Aamal pp. 183, 184 specifically states that only the sufi such as ibn ‘Arabi, Hallaaj, ‘Attaar and … believe in unity of being and no true Shi’ah scholar can believe in unity of being …


It is noteworthy to mention that Mulla Sadra has completely copied the concept of the ‘Wahdat al-Wujud’ and ‘Wahdat al-Mawjud’ or ‘unity of being’ of ibn ‘Arabi and many more of his concepts in his Hikmat al-muta'aliya fi-l-asfar al-'aqliyya al-arba'a known as Asfar …


It is also important to ponder about an inevitable consequence of the belief of being one with god and thus being ‘know-it-all’ by all humans … then every one does as he/she wishes … and that is what is being experienced in the world today … and that is what Shaitan has been after … he does not wish the True God to be obeyed and worshipped …


Here it is vital to remember that in authentic books such as the Usul Kafi and … it is narrated that Imam Saadeq (SBUH) has asserted that the killing of Prophets was also the misusing and changing of their teachings; with this definition without any shadow of a doubt the Prophet Mohammad (SAWA)- the last and most perfect Prophet of Allah who corrected all previous distortions- was martyred …


Now that the savage martyrdom of his Pure teachings has been established let us continue exploring the physical martyrdom of the Prophet Mohammad (SAWA) …


To be continued …
