Conversations: The Infidel Republic of Iran
( The following conversation happend 2 days ago between me and my MB leaning friend H.) Me: You ever hear of the “Koran-aen”? H: No, who are they? Me: They are a group of Muslims who say that they only follow the Koran and what it has to say, and refuse to follow anything else, including the hadiths. They claim that Hadiths authenticity can not be trusted or verified and therefore they don’t follow and reject anything in Islamic lore that deals with or comes from them. For them being a Muslim is about following the Koran and nothing else. H: Oh, so they are a bunch of Kafarah (Infidels)? Me: What do you mean Infidels? They follow the Koran and believe in god and the prophet. Why are they infidels? H: Because the Hadiths are part of the Sunnah. Hell, the Sunnah is entirely built on Hadiths. And the Prophet himself said that the Sunnah is Islam and whomever doesn’t follow it is a Kafir. Me: It's reported that he said that in a hadith, right? H: Yes. What’s your point? Me: Nevermind. Now, according to what you are saying, anyone who doesn’t follow the Sunnah is an infidel. Is that correct? H: Yes. That’s correct. Me: Does that mean that all the Shia in the world are infidels? H: I didn’t say that. Me: But they are Shia, which means that they don’t follow and down-right reject a big chunk of the Sunnah. We can chose to do so and not be infidels? We are allowed to pick and chose which part of the Sunnah we like to follow? H: No. We are not. Whomever rejects the Sunnah or a part of it is an infidel. Me: So you are saying that the Shia are infidels? H: I am saying that by rejecting the sunnah or parts of it they are infidels, yes. Me: Wow. You do realize that you have just called the majority of Iraq and the entire country of Iran Infidels? H: Oh lord. See, that’s why I don’t like talking to you about stuff like that. Me: You are not backing down, are you? You still maintain that they are infidels, right? H: No, I am not backing down. Yes, by being Shia they are infidels. Me: Nice. Now, do you think the egyptian muslim population would still support them and hail them as the model of the modern Islamic state if they figured out that they are infidels? H: Well, Yeah! Me: How so? H: They want Israel destroyed, don’t they? Me: Touche man! LOL..Tou-che!
