The Twelver Imamite Shia claim to Tawhid is nothing but a lip service, the non-biased Muslim researcher into Twelver Shiism will have no doubt whatsoever that Shiism (with its mainstream traditions, approved by their top clergy) and Tawhid are polar opposites. We have already written an article that should leave no doubt that Shiism is inherently pagan in its nature, to the point that ‘praying to Fatimah over 500 times whilst prostrating‘ are established practices (yet Tarawih prayers, where God alone is prayed to are rejected!).

Today we’d like to present you yet another shocking and unfortunately mainstream Shia practice and prayer that is in total opposition to everything Islam stands for; no form of Tawassul (intercession) or other excuses can justify such horrendous pagan prayers in the name of Islam and the Prophet’s () progeny:


Al-Kafi by Al-Kulayni




اذا أحزنك أمر فقل في سجودك « يا جبريل يا محمد – تكرر ذلك – إكفياني ما أنا فيه فإنكما كافيان، واحفظاني بإذن الله فإنكما حافظان»
(أصول الكافي 2/406 كتاب الدعاء – باب الدعاء للكرب والهم والحزن).

‘If something saddens you, say in your sujud (prostration), “O [Angel] Jibrail, O Muhammad – repeat that – Suffice me both of you as both of you are sufficient. Help me—two of you—for you are my helpers, protect me with the permission of Allah for you are my protectors.’ [Usul Al-Kafi 2/406, Book of Supplications, Chapter: Du’a for sorrow, grief …]

In other Shia sources there are more details to this pagan supplication, including instructions for bizarre Jewish-like rituals (placing cheeks on the floor, a practice attributed to early Jews, practiced by no sect except the Twelver Shia, particularly when they pray to Fatimah, ‘Ali and Angel Jibrail whilst in prostration/Sujud!):


Bihar Al-Anwar by Al-Majlisi




و في رواية أخرى ثم ضع خدك الأيمن على الأرض و قل مائة مرة يا محمد يا علي يا علي يا محمد اكفياني فإنكما كافيان و انصراني فإنكما ناصران ثم ضع خدك الأيسر و قل مائة مرة أدركني أدركني ثم تقول الغوث الغوث حتى ينقطع النفس

‘… and in another narration it says: “Then place your right cheek on the earth and say 100 times: O Muhammad! O ‘Ali! O ‘Ali! O’ Muhammad! Suffice me both of you as both of you are sufficient. Help me—two of you—for you are my helpers. Then place your left cheek (on the earth) and say 100 times: Rescue me! Rescue me! Then say: Help, Help! [Al-Majlisi in his Bihar Al-Anwar, vol. 87, ch. 6, p. 38, hadith no. 6 original source is Al-Kaf’ami’s Al-Balad Al-Amin, p. 152]

Now ponder over the following verses of the Qur’an to see how Anti-Qur’anic the very essence and teachings of Shi’ism are:

أَمَّن يُجِيبُ الْمُضْطَرَّ إِذَا دَعَاهُ وَيَكْشِفُ السُّوءَ وَيَجْعَلُكُمْ خُلَفَاء الْأَرْضِ أَإِلَهٌ مَّعَ اللَّهِ قَلِيلًا مَّا تَذَكَّرُونَ

Is He [not best] who responds to the desperate one when he calls upon Him and removes evil and makes you inheritors of the earth? Is there a deity with Allah ? Little do you remember. {Qur’an, 27:62}

Apologists (Shia and Pro-Shia ones alike) might argue:

That’s not mainstream, I never seen this, must be a weak narration, something done by extremists!’


Unfortunately it’s not, in fact it’s mainstream to the core, as a matter of fact, every single practicing Twelver Shiite in the world is supposed to recite the lines above right after his daily prayers! Yes, you read right, Shias, who argue that they pray the daily prayers like Muslims and hence pray to Allah miss the point, they miss that the very definition of shirk (associating partners with Allah like in worship) i.e. polytheism and a mushrik i.e. polytheist is that he (i.e. the polytheist) may worship God and believe in him, but not without associating partners with his Lord in his Lordship (Rububiyyah) and his Uluhiyyah (Divinity) i.e. commiting shirk in worship as the Shias do who right after worshipping Allah, invoke the Prophet AND an Angel (like Catholics do!) in the most important position of Salah and worship in the eyes of Allah which is Sujud (prostration).


The polytheistic mainstream Shia prayer above is called ‘Du’a’ Al-Faraj (Invocation for the Advent of the Shia Mahdi), it its most famous version it also includes prayers to the Mahdi where the Shiite is supposed to beg him for help and his alleged ‘re-emergence’. A bizarre fabrication so alien to Islam that would even shock the pagans of the Quraysh in the early days of Islam. Here excerpts from the prayer, taken from the infamous al-Islam org website that openly propagates such kufriyat (disbelief) and Zandaqah (heresies) in the name of the Ahl Al-Bayt:



No doubt, the above illustrates nothing but unfiltered kufr that no excuse and pathetic justification attempt by Shia apologists (when they desperately attach Islamic terminologies to their heretical practices such as ‘Tawassul’, ‘Wasilah’, ‘Shafa’ah’ etc. as if shirk will turn to Tawhid or dirt to gold when being being attached with technical terminologies) will ever convince a Tawhid longing and loving monotheist.

Such mainstream Shia prayers oppose the very foundations of Tawhid and what Islam stands for; sure, it can be called Catholic-like ‘Tawhid’ (they too pray to Gabriel after all whilst claiming to believe and worship one God in!), but surely not Islamic! How blind (or biased) must one be, not to see that no where in thas du’a Allah’s name is mentioned, not even once! It is not intercession in any shape or form, Shias should really rethink and ask themselves if they really want to face their Lord on Judgement Day with such ugly beliefs and practices. We leave you with some comments from a thread, where users discussed the ‘Du’a’ Al-Faraj’ prayer … Alhamdulillah that some users, despite their opposition to the Ahl Al-Sunnah and their beliefs, are slowly realising that something is unjustifiably wrong with the pathetic Shia excuses regarding their direct prayers to Imams …
