Can a Shia not be a unity fan?

Yes, I know a minority of the Shias curse the companions of Muhammad (Pbuh). But I do not. And there are other Shia Muslims who do not curse the companions. I do not wish to ask Allah (Swt) to eliminate anyone from His mercy and if I have any disrespect towards the companions of Muhammad (Pbuh), I rather keep it in my heart for Allah (Swt) to seek only. Everything Shias do is with intention and cursing the companions may not be a respectful thing to do, but I wish that other Muslims wouldn't generalise and state that ALL Shias curse the companions, because as I stated above, some don’t.

How can someone tolerate being a unity fan when the other side is not willing to at least listen to what we have to say? And why is it essential to say that Shias are not unity fans? Can’t a Shia be a unity fan? Why not?

    lolz i have people here tell me i'm not shia and that i'm a unity fan... i don't curse the companions nor do i think about them... i follow the family of the Prophet and i do respect his wives... i don't say ya Ali or anything....

    what does this actually make me?

    i'm still shia... even though i seem like a unity fan... but a true shia is like that...

    Sister, I understand your point that's the thing nowadays people say things and don't mean it...hypocrisy you could say..as long as your hoping for unity then pray for it and YOU don't be bad..try to lead others to the right path..I don't state such things..as me myself I hate generalizations!

    I meet a few people every so often who think all muslims are terrorists but say they thought wrong after meeting me or another muslim who acts good and is peaceful by nature!

    Edit:- even at heart it isn't good to curse bad or good companions..forgive me..but how does anyone know that our prophets pbuh companions were bad? He was here to lead to us examples of how to lead our own lives..so would he really befriend bad 'companions' who were far from being led to the right path? I think not..BUT we should concern ourselves on following the sunnah and the Quran! =)

    Inshallah I hope no offence is taken..

    Salaam

    I know a minority of the Shias curse the companions of Muhammad (Pbuh)- This is false. The majority curse them.

    "and if I have any disrespect towards the companions of Muhammad (Pbuh), I rather keep it in my heart for Allah (Swt) to seek only".- What??? These are the men Allah honored, and you will keep your disrespect for them for Allah to seek only? This makes no sense. And since when does Allah 'seek'??

    "How can someone tolerate being a unity fan when the other side is not willing to at least listen to what we have to say?"- I think both sides can claim this.

    1. see Abu Haroons answer

    2. How can a shia be a unity fan, if they dont like the LEADERS of the muslims, e.g. Abu Bakr (Ra)?

    3. Unity is to be based upon the Quran and the sunnah.

    4. A people is known by their leaders, if the shia follow the teaching of people who curse the companions, then they are just like their leaders.

    According to Sura Munafiqeen and Sura Tawba (baraat) some companions of Rasoolallah (saww) were Hypocrite,

    Every Muslim should curse Hypocrites.

    UNITY IS ONLY POSSIBLE ON TRUTH

  • Shias are the followers of the Family of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH&HF) [The Holy Ahl-ul-bait]........

    .......the followers of The Holy Ahl-ul-bait love what Allah SWT loves

    Allah SWTloves unity.....

    .......those who hate unity hate what Allah SWT does

    and that's what iblees LAEEN does........

    Prophet Mohammad (PBUH&HF) said:

    “I am about to answer the call (of death). Verily, I leave behind two precious things (thaqalayn) amongst you: the Book of Allah and my Ahl al­Bayt. Verily, the two will never separate until they come back to me by the side of the Pond.”

    this has been narrated by over 30 companions........

    unfortunetly people decided to ignore this order........

    Source(s): the truth speaks for itself..........

    why is it essential to say that Shias are not unity fans?

    ===>> u used the S that means u are talking about the majority and the majority of shiaa curse....u are minority, just bcz u was sunni and deep down u are affraid that this cursing will threw u in hell.

    Can’t a Shia be a unity fan?

    ===>>>> a shiaa can be a friend for a sunni IF he dont curse nor misinterprete nor slander, nor believe in hating the sahaba etc....

    BUT i find in yahoo maybe one girl like that and she promised that she wont curse the sahaba and i respect her.....she is the only one i respect her between the shiaa.

    BTW using the word ''seek'' is really wrong...replace it by ''judge''....thats what i think u meant.

    so a shiaa can be friend, but the SHIAAS(population), NEVER UNLESS THEY LEAVE THE CURSING ETC....

    =====================================

    and i prefer using ''accepting this shiaa'' not ''unity'' bcz since some shiaa like u think like that ==> ''if I have any disrespect towards the companions of Muhammad (Pbuh), I rather keep it in my heart ''

    so no unity with ppl who hate the companions in their heart or even out loud.

    bcz how could we unite with who have hate in their hearts, who prove that they dont even hate us??

    there's shiaa who in their hearts dont hate sahaba ....those i can take them as friends, but hating in the hearts, well thats not right at all.

    just like christians we can treat them well, if they dont insult islam, but if they have some kind of hate..... its logic to not be confortable with them.

    shiaa should respect and later they will earn respect.thats it.

    Can a Shia not be a unity fan? No. WHY : because they are never for peace. WHY? because they slander and curse.

    a ''minority'' of the Shias curse the companions. NOT TRUE. u get 'hasana' by cursing the 'enemies' of ahlul bayt.

    'But I do not. ' THEN U R IN MINORITY.

    No one can be a Unity Fan, and then secretly thumb up/take sides of people belonging to their sect. That's not Unity; that's hypocrisy.
