A Râfidi Shia Experiences an Instructive Dream
taken from Irshad
by Sheikh Muzaffer Ozak al-Jerrahi

   A Râfidi is a schismatic who hates Hazrat Abu Bakr, Umar and Uthman, and who dares to pretend that he thereby proves his love for our master Ali the Elect. See what befell one of these, how he met with a welcome and a rebuff:

   A certain Rafidi once dreamt that the Resurrection had begun; mankind had gathered at the Place of Resurrection and when he approached the pond of the Nabi (s.a.s.), a blessed individual filled a cup and offered it to him. "Who are you?" asked the Rafidi, and the reverend being replied:

"I am that person who was the first of the great to believe in the Most Noble Messenger. I am the one who accompanied the Messenger throughout his life in all his battles, who spent all his wealth in his cause and was content to wear a simple cloak. His minister in his lifetime, his successor at his death, his companion in the cave, his father-in-law by divine decree; it was I who led the pray in his prayer-niche while he was still alive. Intercessor for half of this Community, I am the one who prayed that my body might be enlarged to fill all the space in Hell, leaving no room in the Fire for the Community to burn!"
The Rafidi withdrew, saying: "I understand. You are Abu Bakr. I shall not drink water from your hand! Ali is all I need." A little further on, he encountered another blessed individual, likewise dispensing from the Prophet's pond. He asked him who he was...

  This person replied:

"I was the fortieth Muslim, whose true faith and submission were manifested together, father-in-law to the Messenger, father of Hafsa, together with the Messenger of Allah in all his battles, my judgement the subject of seventy seven Ayats of the Holy Qur'an, the second Khalif of the Nabi, his consultant during his lifetime, the son-in-law of Ali the Elect. Of me he said: 'Had there been a Prophet to come after me, it would have been Umar ibn al-Khattâb.' I am the man who conquered Syria, Egypt, and Persia; who gave commands to an army at a distance of three months' marching time; who drove the fire from the Yemen; who made the River Nile comply with my orders; deliverer of the Aqsa Masjid; who cared nothing for the world below; who wore a cloak of forty patches, even though the Muslim Treasury was filled to overcrowding; in whose Khalifat the sheep and the wolf shared pasture, the wolf not daring to attack the sheep."
The Rafidi withdrew once more, saying: "I understand. You are Umar ibn al-Khattâb. I shall not drink your water, either. I shall drink from the hand of Ali the Elect." Again he was met by a blessed individual, who offered him a cup of water from the pond of the Messenger, and again he asked: "Who are you?" This time, the reply was:
   "I am the one who married two of the Messenger's precious daughters; when my wives passed over to the Hereafter, the Messenger said of me: 'If I had had hundreds of daughters, I would have given them to Uthmân.' I am the one to whom the Messenger said: 'O righteous Uthmân, pray for me.' I am the amanuensis of the Holy Qur'an. The angels are shy of me. Victim and martyr am I. With fasting mouth I made the final testimony. I spent my wealth in the cause of Islam. Although an Umayyad, I was one of the first to believe. I was congratulated in my lifetime on the promise of Paradise. I am the Messenger's third Khalif."

   When the Rafidi heard this, he said: "You are Uthmân. Your water is not good to me either." His words saddened Hazrat Uthmân. The man moved away, to be met by a blessed individual with the build of a lion, who also greeted him kindly. Once again he asked:

"Who are you? and that worthy individual said: "I am the Lion of Allah; owner of the sword called Dhul-Fiqar; victor of Khaybar; cupbearer of the water of Paradise; husband of the Messenger's dearly beloved daugher Fatima the Radiant; father of Hasan and Husayn; greatest of the People of the Nabi's Household; concerning whom many Qur'anic Verses were sent down; of whom the Messenger said that those who hate me are hypocrites, while those who love me are believers; whose dignity is proclaimed in the Prophet Tradition: 'Of those whose master I am, Ali is master also;' the first child to believe in the Messenger; at the Messenger's side in all his battles; who lay in the Messenger's bed at the Hijra, ready to sacrifice his life to help him escape; drowned in the sea of affliction; the compliant and open-hearted one am I."
When the Rafidi heard this, he cried: "You are Ali the Elect. I recognize you. O Imâm, before you I was offered by Abu Bakr, Umar, and Uthmân, but I did not accept their offerings." The face of the Lion of Allah became suddenly flushed at these words. He gave the Rafidi a mightly slap in the face, saying: "One who does not drink their water, shall not drink our water either!" When the Rafidi recovered consciousness, he saw that he had spewed thirty-two teeth into the palm of his hand. He repented, felt remorse for his actions and forsook his hatred of our masters, Hazrat Sheikhs Abu Bakr, Umar, and Uthmân, may Allah be pleased with them all.
